We just moved to Napa and it was our 10th wedding anniversary so we were looking for a nice place to have dinner. Friends in town suggested Morimoto. Thank god for friends! What an amazing dinner to celebrate our special day. My wife had the Halibut Thai coconut curry, mussels, bell pepper relish and I had the Morimoto Pork Chop and Applesauce- SRF kurobuta, Kimchee, bacon, ginger apple purée with a side of Brussel Sprouts. Anthony our waiter was exceptional, helping us out all along the way. We had no room for dessert because portions were so substantial!! Desserts however sounded unbelievable and we will be back! Thank you all for memorable dining experience!!

Came here for lunch. Had the Covid 19 protocol: sanitizers, temp checks etc. Was seated right away on the patio. Our server was attentive and pleasant. We ordered the rocky shrimp tempura, salmon skin roll (superb!!), roasted brussel sprouts and the black cod soy reduction. Everything was delicious.
It's been a while since we dined here. Last time, I believe was about 2 years ago - although we have dined at other Morimoto locations. Food was just as good as we remembered.

Great Alfresco lunch on the patio at Morimoto! Kayla, our server, was professional and charming. All food from.the kitchen was excellent. Restaurant is following all safety procedures.
Only patio seating, so make sure you make reservations!

We ate here the last night before indoor dining shut down again. We got temperatures taken at the door. Service was good. The sushi was great, however the rock shrimp tempura was the only disappointment of the night.

July 2020 - restaurant was open with limited seating due to COVID-19 restrictions. Unfortunately the menu selection was also very limited. With only 1 seafood entre option, we ate a lot of sushi, which was excellent quality but expensive even by fine-dining standards. Service was friendly, but slow. I'm hoping that Morimoto's is a better experience when fully open. Not a top-notch experience.

Round table in the corner for 7 diners. Server Justin was great—just the right amount of attention. Had a variety of sushi and al a crate items—the gyoza and calamari salad are always terrific. Very reasonably priced even though Open Table says $$$$. We paid $70/person including tip and everyone had 1 or 2 drinks. Great experience for both locals and tourists.

So glad Morimoto re-opened! Felt safe as ALL employees were wearing masks, our table was at least 10 feet away from any other table.

The Two Pinas and a Bush cocktail is delicious! Try substituting mezcal!

As always, the rolls and nigiri were tasty.

Cristal, our server, was friendly, and efficient. Thank you!!

Pretty good asian fusion food given the limited alternatives available in the surrounding area. However, the prices are rather high for the portion & quality. Would like to see more choices, as the menu hasn't changed much in last 3-years, at least.

Even though the website had details of their safe practices during Covid-19. Unfortunately they seated us between 2 occupied tables only giving 2 feet from strangers. But yet the restaurant was 3/4 empty. They did give us a more distant table upon request.

It was a wonderful experience! The Store Front doesn’t do any justice. When you enter you are transformed into a new state of mind. Beautiful decor, simple but with intent. The food presentation and the flavors were delicious. The service was of equal value. It is definitely a popular place so the noise level is high. It is now one of my favorite places!

Overall, we enjoyed the food here but we could not get past how loud it was!! It seemed like every sound reverberated throughout the restaurant and pounded into our ears. We could not talk a tour table without yelling, completely taking away from the food experience. Disappointing as many of the items we ordered we very good and the sushi was top quality, I just don’t see us returning anytime due to the noise. We are at Kenzo the night before on Napa and the two experiences were no comparison. It’s a shame it was like a rock concert inside, the food was very good.

My wife and I both agreed that from the start to finish, this was the best meal we have ever had! From the service, to the dessert, everything was outstanding! The only observation we both made was the extreme volume level of chatter. It certainly was energetic, but made it challenging to have a conversation. As for food, simply divine!
