We came because of the Morimoto name and left with an inside joke, where if something is practically inedible, borderline rancid and must be sent back, we’d call it Morimoto. The service is amazing and the ambiance is lovely and the food all sounds delicious. We did not do the omakase (a favorite culinary adventure of mine) and instead ordered what we’d heard about...hamachi tacos, yellowtail pastrami and then our waitresses recommendations of what the establishment is known for. The tacos were flavorful but We’d had better, the yellowtail pastrami was vile and we sent it back. The rest of the meal was nice but relatively bland. We paid $150 for a dinner for two without alcohol and left disappointed.

This was my first experience at the Morimoto restaurant. Although the service was good, I did not enjoy my meal. The Monkey Bread was delicious.

Mostly amazing food. However the steak was disappointing. It was very tough and not much flavor. We had the tasting menu. Environment was great though and service was very attentive but not in your face.

Markup on wine is 300% plus which took the air out of an otherwise good meal. Bring your own bottle! Steaks are very expensive.

Poorly designed restaurant that is extremely noisy. So, don't bother going during peak hours if you want to conduct a conversation with your date or friends.

I had green curry dish, which was rather bland - hardly noticed the curry. Appetizers and desert were unremarkable. I can't say I would ever go back or recommend to others.

The food was amazing. But the ambiance was like a basketball game - a huge room with super-high ceilings, harsh can-lighting, and noise so loud it was very hard to have a conversation. The meal was worthy of a kaiseki meal in a first-rate ryokan in Kyoto. However in Japan, soft lighting in a calming space is an essential part of the experience.

we came on a whim, because we were in the mood for sushi. We had excellent food and service. Our server poured us some extra sake to taste and compare. This place is expensive, but you get quality.

It’s as good as you’d expect from chef morimoto... fresh and good. Pretty darn expensive tho. The room is really big and echoey.

Morimoto's is a great spot to grab dinner in downtown Napa. The food is authentic and fresh and having been to his other locations there is just a better flavor and bigger portion serving in Napa. The wine and cocktail list is wonderful and the food is always presented beautifully. The menu can either be sushi or inventive Japanese fare. The service was quick and efficient. It does get a little loud at the peak dinner times so it may not be the best place for a quiet conversation but the tables are not on top of each other. Overall a wonderful meal and I will be back.

Good service, cozy place. We've ordered omakase, it's not traditional omakase, more like fusion, the appetizers are better than the main course, but the food overall is fresh, delicious and creative. A nice place for special occasions.
