The restaurant was dirty. There were stains on all the furniture we sat on. We thought we were eating at a high end restaurant but left feeling dirty.

Tuna Tacos and Rock shrimp apps were like a dish from the Cheesecake Factory. Sashimi was very good and the table side yellow tail ishi yaki buri bop was excellent as was the service.

Menu needs work in order to reflect value for price paid.

Food was good, not great. Service was average to poor. Server wanted to go home and it was obvious. Did the okomasse premium menu. Courses were good, last dessert was poor, neither of us took more than a bite, no substitute was offered and the check was dropped as last dessert course was presented. Clearly it was time for us to go at 9pm. Not worth $500.00 tab all things considered.

Wonderful meal with fantastic foodie recipes. Easily some of the best food we've ever had. The tempura shrimp was to die for. And the mushroom side dish was amazing. Skip the sushi and try the appetizers and mains.

Overall food experience disappointing. Same menu as last 3-5 yrs
It is very limited compared to other Morimoto Restaurants. eg Napa and Honolulu. Food as served.. Ok esp the cod. But overall feels tired.
Good service but declining food experience.
We live nearby and unlikely to come back quickly unless they sharpen up on the menus.

While the location and service was fantastic, the dishes did not meet our high expectations. The chirashi fish was chopped up in bite size portions that I have never experienced at any Japanese restaurant. Of all the restaurants we visited during our week long stay in Maui, this restaurant was the most expensive. Sadly underwhelming.

The food was outstanding but the service was awful. It leaves a sour taste in your mouth when you splurge on a wonderful meal, and are left feeling as an unimportant guest at the restaurant. We had to wait 15 minutes for a table that was already empty when we arrived. Our waiter never came to ask how we were doing between courses. We had to flag down servers for water. Again, delicious food, but wish we would have spent the money elsewhere where our patronage was valued.

We did the upgraded tasting menu. $200 per person. The food was good. Was it great? Some of it but not all. Service wasn’t great. Some courses were perfectly timed while some took ages to make it out to us. My husband overheard FOH staff fighting with each other, and it was obvious that there was a lot of tension amongst most of the staff both out front and in the kitchen. Overall, the experience was OK. Would I ever come back? Maybe if we ordered off the regular menu, but I definitely would never do the tasting menu here again.

Walking in there were 2 men w a dog in a stroller hand feeding and speaking to the dog like it was a child; not cool at this price point..
We ate before our Maui trip at Morimoto Napa and it was FABULOUS. In my opinion, don’t waste your hard earned money at this restaurant, go to Mama’s Fish House instead.

The food was pretty good but not up to my standards for the price. The wagyu filet was good but was the same quality as a regular steak for half the price. We had wagyu ribete at Spago the day before and it was far more superior. It was nice to try and had the novelty of being Iron Chef Morimito but did not live up to my expectations. Also the placement of tables and chairs on the patio is a poor layout.

Enjoyable atmosphere near the pool. Had the omakase 7 course, was not disappointed. It was a little cramped once the tables around us filled up.

We went for our 25th anniversary and had the “Omakasi” which is the 9 course chef’s choice meal. SO amazing, and food we would have never chosen off the menu ourselves. The service was spectacular and each plate was beautiful . If you’re an adventurous eater, definitely try it! That said, it was very pricey for the portion sizes.

The food was outstanding ... the breeze and ambiance superb and I could even see the hula show ! Would highly recommend, the food I had was the best I have had on Maui and the staff was incredibly accommodating ( even with my late reservation) the bar tender chris was so knowledgeable and made some fantastic cocktails! It’s worth the trip just for that! And I will definitely be back!

Not all Morimotos are created equal. This one is somewhat less equal than others I've been to. The sushi & maki are good, saki selection is nice. But a service level somewhere between indifferent and highway reststop conspired to ruin the experience.

One of our favorite restaurants in the world! The drinks are outstanding and inventive, and the food is marvelous—I especially like the angry chicken. Our bartenders Clay and Nick were a delight.

My wife and I ordered the gyoza with bacon foam. We order gyoza everywhere we go and this was by far the best. Never heard of bacon foam but we found ourselves smothering each bite of gyoza in the foam! She ordered the filet mignon. It was cooked and tasted perfectly, which we’ve been finding steakhouses having a difficult time cooking a steak medium-well. I ordered the short rib. It was so tender and tasty. We ordered the kula corn on the cob as a side. In general, You think of butter and salt for seasoning but not Morimotos. Don’t know what was on it but we ate every last kernel.

We ended the evening with mini donuts that came with 3 sauces for dessert. All 3 sauces were amazing and even though we were stuffed, we probably could’ve ate another serving of donuts since there was sauce left! We sat outside at a table with a beautiful ocean view and watched the sun set. Perfect dinner and evening to celebrate our wedding anniversary!
