    Really disappointed. We have been to Morimotos in the past and had great experiences both times. We were expecting the same but sadly, it wasn't great. Service was sporadic, food wasn't great and came out in strange sequences - we ordered sides to go with the entrees, but the sides came out 20 minutes earlier than the entree. Won't be coming back.

    We loved celebrating our anniversary dinner at Morimotos. This was our first time at this restaurant and the food, drinks, and service were amazing. We got the BBQ oysters as our appetizers and some of the best we have ever had! We will be coming back again.

    Been here many times, and it i always good. I will say we came a little later in the day for lunch and the restaurant was largely empty, yet the host tried to seat us in some tight, dark corner when the entire restaurant was wide open. She was very accommodating when we asked for a different table, which we appreciated. The service was good, but slow. Watching this, it was clear the server's priority was his "side work": Folding Napkins, etc. (which I know has to be done before he leaves his shift, but I think if he had poured our wine more readily (rather than waiting for glasses to be totally empty) he might have sold a second bottle. Overall he was very pleasant and competent. The food was good, but ironically the "hot" dishes were better than the cold ones (which is not usually the case). It felt like the cold dishes were perhaps done earlier and then plated? (could be wrong on that); Bottom line was they were just "ok". The Sushi was excellent as always. This is a very good restaurant and I will be back; It just felt like it was off a bit (hence a 4 star review instead of 5 like I usually would leave). Perhaps avoid late lunches there?

    The sashimi was excellent. We’ve had better sushi. Entrees are expensive, portions are small, expensive and all is a la Carte. The restaurant is very loud and one has to almost yell to speak to friends at the table.

    Off the bat the two drinks we were going to order were out or missing ingredients and our edamame came out late after two other dishes. The sticky ribs were great and the braised pork belly app was good. We found the sushi rolls to be sub par (like California grocery store quality and taste). The Chashu bop was ok but better presentation than taste. The carrot cake was dry and lacked flavor. The white chocolate lime ganache was also very good but overall it was 3.5 star food at 5 star prices.

    Don’t expect a romantic environment when dining here. The food is great but the noise level makes it hard to have Comfortable conversation with my husband. Also the tables are crowded together. We expected a more elegant experience considering all of the hype. Fortunately, the food and service is very good.

    First time eating at Morimoto, and it was underwhelming. As a Napa local and someone in the hospitality industry, Morimoto was just alright given my experience at other establishments. The server seemed overwhelmed, maybe they had an unexpected rush of guests or some people call out, but she never even introduced herself. The restaurant has great aesthetics and decor, but with a lot of hard surfaces it was pretty loud. The food quality was good and we enjoyed most of the dishes we ordered. Some standouts were the pork gyozas, ramen, duck fried rice, and shrimp tempura roll.

    The steak was probably the most tender, flavorful, and juiciest cuts of beef I’ve ever eaten. Black Cod was equally amazing and our Saba, Anago, and Soft Shall Crab were all exquisite. It was, however, the noisiest restaurant I’ve ever eaten in. People were yelling across their tables to be heard, not enjoyable.

    Food was amazing, myself, husband, 8 and 10 year old kids. The Morimoto sake flight, toro sampler, whitefish carpaccio and the braised cod highly recommended and the sphere dessert had milk and honey cream inside! We also got the fried rice made at the table which was fine but not incredible. I think the ambiance in the main room seemed nicer than the side room that we were in.

    Our waiter was very helpful, especially directing me to a good sake to have with my meal. The black cod was delicious. Unfortunately, the sushi rolls were not very good. We had what must have been a piece of crab shell in our crab roll. And there was very little shrimp tempura in our roll. We had much higher expectations for the sushi rolls. We will not return.

    Morimoto is always a pleasurable dining experience. Their staff is very cordial and inviting. The food is really savory and fresh. I highly recommend the A5 Miyazaki Wagyu, sticky ribs, and shrimp tempura roll. For dessert the Dark Chocolate Sphere is a gorgeous plate with a fun visual for the table and tastes great. Every time people are in town, I take them to Morimoto and they absolutely love it. In my mom’s words “that was the best meal I’ve had in years.”
