Great patio dining experience with the same quality of food and service. Don’t make the mistake of ordering a pork chop at a high end sushi and sashimi restaurant.

Amazing food, great service, tried some wonderful dishes (sticky ribs major win! And interesting take on pork gyoza). Sushi and sashimi were great too! Did not try the entrees this time... next time.

This was the best meal we've had at the Napa location. Our server, Oman, was top notch. His recommendation on a bottle of Sake was spot on. The gyoza appetizer with the bacon foam was incredible as was the fried rice with duck confit. It's a beautiful setting right on the river. Can't wait to go back!!

Had an amazing dinner experience at Morimoto. Started with the wagyu beef carpaccio- which was excellent! Also first time having shishito peppers, and I loved it so much that I got myself some peppers from the market next day to cook for myself ! The Pork belly was also amazingly yummy!! Had the chefs combination for sashimi, which was Excellent too!! Overall nice experience considering the outdoor dining with Covid restrictions.

The food was top notch worth every penny. However our waiter was a little lost. Took our drink orders but forgot to bring it. We had to remind him. Got part of our food, forgot 1 dish. And kitchen was about to close last call, so we had to remind him again.

With the limited menu, they didn’t have any entrees that are vegetarian and generally had limited options for vegetarians. My fish/meat eating family liked it though!

I've been here many times. This was my 1st outdoor eating experience since COVID. I felt comfortable there at first but other patrons regularly walked past my table without a mask & staff did not direct them to put their masks on. I wouldn't feel comfortable returning unless staff had watchful eyes and enforced mask wearing.

Justin was our server and did an incredible job of making this an amazing experience. From his clear appreciation of the food they serve, to his excellent drink recommendations. The precautions being taken during COVID-19 are admirable and made us feel comfortable and able to enjoy ourselves for a much needed treat during challenging times. Thank you!

Food was fabulous, delicious. We were seated on the outdoor patio, outside their inner patio which was fine, however it was quite sunny and there are no umbrellas so it was a bit hot.

We definitely enjoyed the food and Josh was extremely helpful and patient with us as we were overwhelmed with the menu. The casual encounter was fantastic. The halibut and chef’s combination were delish. Definitely would go again. Oh, as for the COVID-19 protocols, definitely ensured it was followed.

We go to Morimoto's twice a month. We usually sit at the bar and we love the bar staff! Due to current dining guidelines, we sat outside and the service was fantastic. Marianne was very attentive. Adrian stopped by to say hello. He is always sweet. And Josh was johnny on the spot with our drinks.

The food is just fine but that is it. Just fine. And they are charging premium price. There is a local sushi place here in Davis which is much better and less expensive.
We has purely sushi and we did try the carpaccio and had each a cocktail. The carpaccio was truly delicious. The cocktails were fun, innovative, unique but overall too sweet.

Great service! Delicious seafood! Only minor flaw was that the crust of the seared halibut was too salty but the curry definitely helped. Be prepared to spend $$$! I would definitely come back here again the next time I’m in town!

Our favorites were not on menu, so we orders the calamari salad. The amount of calamari was almost non existent and was replaced with deep fried breading with no calamari inside.

When done the plates were full of deep fried crumbs

I think will will pass on Morimoto’s going forward.

The food that is not sushi was unique and very flavorful. The Kakuni and Rock Cod dishes were excellent. The sushi was good, but doesn't necessarily stand out against other places in SF. Still recommended.

If you want the most amazing food, great service, perfect atmosphere and the best place for a romantic dinner; then come to Morimoto.

We came to celebrate our 15-year anniversary and left happier then we could of imagined. From the great beer made specifically for Morimoto to amazing staff and perfect weather for July. You can't go wrong!

This being our 4th time coming up to Napa just to eat at Morimoto; we are still coming home with our expectations blown away.
