    The appetizers we ordered was Himach taco and shrimp tempura that was good and roasted Brussels sprouts was excellent But when Sushi combo arrived I was surprised the poor choices of fishes and it didn’t look fresh Rice tasted blend and fish pies was too small for the amount of rice it was put under If I went all you ca eat sushi buffet It couldn’t be worse and this supposed to be a reputable Japanese restaurant And waiter seem too busy to take care of customer and restaurant was not even 1/3 full I don’t call this as Japanese restaurant if you want to eat quality Japanese food

    Sushi was awful. Service was spotty - too many different staff who didn’t know what the others were doing. Extremely noisy. Overall, not a pleasant dining experience. Definitely felt like the corporate place it is, and for the price there are so many nester options in Napa. Won’t be back.

    Very bad service and horrible timing on food. Ordered drinks first, 15 mins ahead of appetizers and didn't get our drinks until mid way through appetizers. Server/manager tried to come upsell us a bottle of sake which was very rude and out of place. Table was also cleared before all guests had finished eating. Restaurant is so loud you wil be unable to hear unless sitting outside. To top that off, server charged service charge of 20 percent to table of five. Unacceptable and not mentioned anywhere or even by our server.

    We had a reservation. After an initial mis-communication - the hostess said we could seat ourselves at the bar - and we sat at the sushi bar not realizing there were two, and not receiving a welcome/service/menu for probably 8-10 minutes - we received a welcome and then we asked to be relocated because there was a large LOUD party behind us and then another 10 minutes later we were moved to the patio outside. It was lovely out there and our waiter, Manny? was super knowledgable, friendly and funny. He suggested a wonderful new Japanese beer I had never tried and to compare a trio of Yellowtail, Amberjack and Striped tuna which are very similar but have nuances in their "waxiness, fat content, and tensile strength of the proteins" He really saved the night and we had a fabulous time.

    Food was pricy as expected. I've eaten at a handful of other restaurants in the same price point. The food here was unlike anything I've ever tasted before. We ordered the whitefish carpaccio and kakuni as appetizers and split the pork chop for the entree.

    I've been to this restaurant many times and it has always delivered!......except for this time. I was disappointed in the Black Cod, which is my favorite dish, and is usually a nice fleshy, translucent piece of fish subtly glazed in a ginger-soy reduction. This time around we got the back end of the fish's tail - not the same quality! - a thin piece of fish that was overtly dominated by the ginger-soy reduction. At $36 for this dish, this is taking advantage of the client!

    Hadn't been to Morimoto's Napa in 15 years, and it's lost a step. The focus seems to be on steaks and sushi; there are other good dishes, but that's the heart of the matter. Tried the Wagyu carpaccio and it had an impossibly tough strand of connective tissue running 2/3 the length of it. The hamachi bowl with rice was a standout -- deliciously flavorful with great texture. The sushi was excellent, but excellent sushi is available all over the place for half the price. The server was more interested in the high-roller's table ordering the Wagyu steaks & $500 bottles of wine than in my wife and I. I won't be going back.

    We have been excited to eat at Morimoto's for years but had not gotten to until now. The ambience was great, with outside seating looking over the river. The drinks were good, especially the Casual Encounter. We ordered salads/soup, spicy ribs appetizer, and sashimi chef's combo. We were surprised the sashimi came out first, then salads/soup, then appetizer. We did not understand the order, and it threw the meal off a bit. The quality was above average but have had better sushi at less expensive restaurants, including Haku in Napa... I think we had such high expectations and were a bit disappointed in reality. We probably would not make a point of visiting again unless others wanted to go. I still recommend just for the experience of going to a Morimoto's..

    It’s been a while since my last visit to this restaurant. The chairs at our table needed a lot of repairs or in need of replacement. We had to have one replaced but ultimately all needed to be replaced. The service was very very slow. We ordered drinks and it took at least 25 minutes for drink s to arrive. Then we ordered apps, only once person was back with drinks were we able to order food. Just seemed like someone could of checked on us and got our order. For our drinks to return. The drinks were very good. The food we were served was all good except for the Raman which was just so-so (very basic flavor) nothing complex .
