Morimoto - Napa
Loved it and the presentation is amazing and creative!
Everything was great. Just a bit too loud. Otherwise service and food were excellent
Morimoto is worth the hype. Perhaps a special occasion for most of us, as it is expensive. However, the food and service are outstanding! We had the sashimi cold appetizer which was gorgeous. The knife skills are bar none. We also had the rock shrimp hot appetizer which the server comped is because another server dropped it at the wrong table. Lucky us! One side was wasabi tempura and the other was like a siracha tempura. Both were delicious; we couldn’t stop eating them. We shared a 4oz. A-5 filet...Oh. My. God. Without a doubt, the best steak ever had in my life. As they say, it melted in your mouth. Believe it or not, we also had the duck confit fried rice; you must try. The rice was soooo good. Also, had tuna maki which although, we all have had it many times, the rice and tuna are top notch. We were too stuffed for desert. I cannot wait to go back, however, it will be awhile, as 2 drinks per person, food, only reason I’m giving it a 4 star. View of the river is nice. You might want to dine at the bar, too.
It was a great evening with excellent service from all staff. We all loved our meals which were flavorful and unique. As soon as you sipped your water it was being refilled, your napkin was folded if you left the table. All of these little touches added to the overall experience making it an excellent night out.
The sticky ribs and unagi maki was mouthwatering delicious. Loved the oysters & lobster/asparagus roll. The desert was impressive and tasty. We can't hear that well and the noise level was more then our usual so it was hard to carry a conversation. We look forward to eating there outdoors or maybe at the sushi bar.
Delicious sushi! Amazing fatty tuna, dumplings, ALL of it!!!
Amazing service and good quality sushi!
We had a party of two. One of us wanted to do the tasting menu and the other did not though they suggest not doing that. Oman was our AMAZING server, and he made sure to time it so we ate our main courses together. The food was so great and the service impeccable! We loved everything we ate here. We did the tuna tartare as an appetizer and the waygu beef surf and turf. My only negative comment would be the heavy handed sauce and seasoning on the waygu beef...a little too saucy and salty. Great experience.
Food was amazing! The only thing is they seem unorganized. The food came out randomly. My grandpa got his entree first, 10 minutes before anyone else. My son got his last when everyone was done eating. It was kind of awkward to have him sitting there while we all ate. My dad ordered coffee and it never came. They were very nice and apologetic, but I expect more organization for a $700 dinner.
Food alone...totally worth it though!
Very good food, ambience also service was great too. The table was a bit long what made a conversation a bit difficult but thats just a tiny thing, the overall experience was good.
Everyone get the sticky ribs... they were Devine 🤤🤤🤤 we are for sure coming back here. 🍣 🍜 edamame was fantastic. Thank you Morimoto!
Was the ultimate in dining experiences.
I found it to be a bit loud but I loved the vibe.
Our waiter Justin was absolutely incredible. Also, there was an assistant he had named Jessie that was marvelous to watch. Just going nonstop. My water was refilled constantly, with is big with me. We will definitely be going back.
My wife and I can here for our birthdays. We’ve been before back when we got married in Hawaii. Our experience in Hawaii was so amazing we came back twice. It’s good to see that the quality of food was held throughout the restaurants. It was a bit loud so conversation seemed harder due to the length of the table and the ambient noise however it wasn’t unbearable. Truly a great experience in Napa valley.
Excellent food with excellent service made for a wonderful birthday dining experience. I wish the restaurant wasn't so loud, but that's a small gripe in an otherwise perfect evening.
I really don't like raw fish, probably wasn't the best choice for a restaurant. They had only one chicken dish (sandwich) and it was cooked with hot peppers which I don't like.
The food was ok but the service was pretentious, rude, and very poor. I have gone to Morimito 5-6 times but will never go back.
Another excellent night at Morimoto Napa. Great food, service and atmosphere.
Great food. Gorgeous setting.
Sushi was fresh
Sat at the sushi bar - place was alive ! Food woow!
Beautiful space. Awesome outdoor dining. Amazing staff. Perfect menu.
Chris Ruys - Restaurant Manager - was amazing, fun, friendly and engaging.
great food, good service, lovely setting on the river.
Always a favorite. Exceptional food. Buri Bop is amazing. Service great.
Too loud, and very cold. Staff were not attentive.
The tables for two are extremely long and it is difficult to hear your partner from across the table. The chairs are uncomfortable. The maki was average.
The food was great! We had the warm octopus, the bone marrow and edamame for appetizers. Then eel, salmon and tuna maki rolls. You have to try the apple and pear cold sake. It’s amazing!
Food was high quality but very salty.
Great food, service, and ambience. Food is pricey but you get what you pay for. Overall would definitely go back when in Napa.
This was our first time to Morimoto as a family, celebrating my daughters 19th birthday, what a great dinner and experience.
The food and service were very good. The prices seemed really high for the Sashimi and accompaniments, charging by the piece, although the Sake Sashimi was amazing. Cocktails were also very good. The restaurant was too cold and the lighting too dim for me and my husband.
Morimoto is outstanding, most of the time. Unfortunately, on this occasion the server claimed not to know at what time the kitchen would close and rushed us through the night to eat faster and order quicker. Thus, we could not enjoy the experience fully and had to take some food to go. Overall, Morimoto remains one of our favorite restaurants despite the higher price for quality dining.
We were so excited to go here and try some things, but when we asked our waitress for recommendations she literally couldn’t suggest anything! At first we passed it off as her first day or something, we continued to ask two others servers, one said he didn’t know, everything and the other said an item not on the menu... hmmmm..... the food itself is great but so your research before because the staff won’t be making any suggestions
Crystal our waitress was amazing. She made the experience very very memorable
Great as always. Wish Amir was there the day we dined at the restaurant. Our server was fine, but Amir is always a step above the rest! Sincerely, Mark Buza
The food was inventive and simply superb! Our cocktails were great, too. Kimchi with pork belly? Genius! Red snapper in curry with sticky rice and plantains? Divine! The short ribs 2 ways was heavenly! If I could've given it 6 stars for food, I would have. My only gripe: the plastic chop sticks. They were pretty, but slippery, so we basically didn't use them.
VERY fresh Sashimi! the best my wife and I had ever had.
Good food. Incredibly noisy place and our server was fairly unfriendly and seemed to feel bothered by questions.
The evening was a delightful experience however the noise was very loud as a party of two we could not talk at all during dinner. Kinda eat and left
