    The food was delicious and the view was gorgeous. We had the Chefs Choice sushi. Every one was very tasty. The fish was fresh. The service was great and we were seated at a table on the edge outside, so we had a wonderful view of the sunset.

    Literally the best sushi you’ll be able to find within 1,000 miles, but even beyond that still damn good. Always an excellent experience from service to food to drink, Morimoto-san’s restaurants all consistently put out top-tier dining experiences.

    We were here for our honeymoon and made a last minute reservation and it did not disappoint! Our server Nancy was wonderful! The food was outstanding from the rock shrimp tempura and gyoza apps to the New York strip steak entree. Also recommend the mushroom side, delicious. Cocktails were on point. The atmosphere very comfortable. I have been a huge fan of Chef Morimoto and lucky for us he was there and we got to meet him! Hope to come back again in the future!

    I don’t generally write reviews but this experience at Morimoto Maui was truly terrible. What made it worse was that Morimoto himself was on site but apparently oblivious to what a terrible meal and experience he is now providing. My waiter was literally dripping huge balls of sweat and as he was quite tall I worried that he would drip sweat into my water glass or onto me. It was not a particularly warm night and whatever the cause there was no reason he couldn’t towel off before approaching guests? The service in general was horrible. I ordered maki but had no soy sauce on my table and it took forever to flag someone down to bring it. When my $80 filet showed up on a scorching hot cast iron platter I had no utensils to eat it with and by the time I flagged someone down my medium rare steak was well done. The mushrooms were delicious but I heard the waiter boast at every table about how much butter they were cooked in. Not ideal. For some reason they have discontinued any real desserts and only offer ice cream or sorbet? Not sure why. All in all such a sad approximation of Morimoto restaurants in their heyday., Really over it. Poor food at hugely inflated prices. Skip it. Better sushi and better food elsewhere in ANY city where there’s a Morimoto.

    Rib appetizer was excellent. Black cod entree was edible. But, nothing special. The pork chops were a very nice size portion and tasty. The three sushi rolls were ok at best. Kids really liked Bau buns. Sapporo beer on draft was stale and tasted like may have been in the tap lines way too long. Service was pretty good and wait staff was really nice. I'm ok paying for quality meals. It's was ok. But, not great like we were hoping for.

    Maybe my expectations were a little too high for this place but rightfully so considering it’s Morimoto. Service was quite slow in the beginning but then after ordering and after being told everything would be spaced out, everything came at once. We had 4 dishes on our table (2 people) including wagyu carpaccio and cooked wagyu - what should I start with then, the appetizer or the cooked beef so it doesn’t get cold. I mentioned this to the server but nothing was done. There was also an earwig that was crawling on our table top so we had to move tables, nothing was done about this. I know it’s an outside restaurant for the most part but one would assume with a bug on the table maybe a drink would’ve been comped or at least a dessert given. Which brings me to my next point, dessert. Our reservation was for 7:30 and they didn’t have time to give us a dessert menu because kitchen closed so they offered us ice cream, when I saw cakes and things coming out earlier (mind you this was 9pm and still many tables sat). Also, the wagyu bop needed salt on the meat desperately. They then took my plate and cutlery before my partner was even finished eating (and we were sharing everything) which shouldn’t happen in such a nice establishment, you always wait for both parties to finish. Just expected better.

    Dissapointing experience. Sashimi/Sushi was pedestrian. Shrimp Tempura was wierd and slathered in some “mayonaissey” sauce. Hamachi Tacos were a disaster. On the other hand the Fish Carpaccio and Mushroom dishes were outstanding but two out of five dishes is a lousy batting average…..especially at those prices!

    The sushi was good but not great. Had to ask for service a couple times. Very American style. Too fried, too sweet, and too saucy. Not a bad meal but not a great value and poolside was pretty hectic.

    Worst restaurant experience in Maui. Ambiance ZERO stars. Felt like we were dining at a traffic intersection. We sat at a table for 2 inside which is apparently like getting the short straw. Noisy, hectic, our server was stressed or forgetful-not sure. Walked right past us multiple times. Average food for $$$. Go to KO or Lineage… Close by.

    Excellent service from the staff! The toro, A5, sake flight, ribs, and mushrooms were memorable. Not our top sushi experience, which is a little disappointing at this price point, but it was one of our favorite meals on the island. Worth the stop for fine dining on Maui! Many of our favorite Maui meals were off the beaten path and outside of the fine dining realm.

    We were seated in a couch-like banquet right next to another couple. Awkward and uncomfortable - just too close for two unique parties of two to be together. Service was a bit slow and we wanted the check quickly because the evening sun was beaming into our faces. Made it hot and we also had to use our hands to shield our eyes. There didn’t appear to be any blinds to help subdue the light. I would say it was a fair experience at most.
