Food is always hands down amazing and delicious! We ordered a bunch to share and was pleasantly full afterwards. Not one single item was unfinished. Outside dining was good. They did the best they can but it’s just cold! No complaints with service and quality. Will definitely return.

The staff at Moriomoto's is fantastic. Amir our server and Francisco the busser make you feel that you are a valued friend. Add a wonderful quality of fish served artistically and you have a wonderful dining experience. I recommend Morimoto's at Napa without hesitation.

Amazing restaurant! Everything we ordered was delicious! We especially liked the sticky ribs and rock shrimp tempura! Warm and toasty outside dining with patio heaters. Service was friendly and efficient. Masked-distancing required and hand sanitizers fully available! 😋

We came as a party of 5 for a birthday meal. I will say the last time we came we had a horrible experience due to the poor training and lack luster work ethic by the staff.

Our waiter was Amir. He was fantastic and very attentive. There were times our glasses, silverware or plates were not up to par and he immediately changed them out before we could even notice. He was quick to clear the plates of the finished dishes and was able to direct us in the right decision for what we wanted to eat. To top it off he made great suggestions for wine/sake and didn’t offer just the most expensive thing. He asked about our preferences and was able to make suggestions almost as if he was a sommelier. He might be for all I know but his table etiquette was fantastic. He was able to remember it was a birthday and had a great treat at the end.

The last time I was here, the restaurant forgot it was my parents anniversary and blamed the computer system.

This time the workers were attentive, and pleasant.

I have eaten a lot of Japanese food in my life and I would say while the ambience was quite nice the food was just barely average.
The shrimp was dried out and the rolls were kind of messy on presentation and not that innovative overall .
We enjoyed the experience but would not return.

During the pandemic everything is LESS except Morimoto.....we had lunch inside with only 2 other tables occupied. The food was fantastic....favorites were the shrimp and pot stickers and a tuna pizza and carpaccio. We had Arnold Palmers instead of wine. All was phenomenal. We have eaten lunch and dinner here before the pandemic and it was wonderful, and still is. They have a covered patio as well for dining. Support your local restaurants and join us at Morimoto often.

The food was really good. The pork chop and apples was excellent. Good flavor and a nice balance of richness and acidity. The sticky ribs were also very good. Meat came off the bone and the glaze was nice.

This was a spectacular lunch for my birthday! We started with a beer for the hubby and the morimoto sake flight for me. Sake was amazing. Hot edamame perfectly salted all the way though with Maldon salt, the only salt I cook with! We then had the chefs choice of sushi. There was Saba, maguro, ebi, hamachi, tobiko, tamago, hirami, to name a few, plus a spicy tuna roll, I think a yellowtail roll and a soft shell crab roll that was soooo good! We ordered some unagi as well. Our server was attentive, fun and he constantly checked in and even brought me a little birthday dessert with a candle. Cannot wait to go back.

We sat outside which was great. Indoor seemed very crowded. Service was so so... had to wait 5 minutes after sushi was delivered for soy sauce and chopsticks.

Service was friendly not bad not exceptional.
Rock shrimp appetizer was tasty,lots of good flavors.
The main dishes including the sushi was meh.
Our local spot in Sacramento is better 1/2 the price with 1/2 the expectations.
There are much better places to dine in the area.
