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.

First time here and it did not disappoint! The atmosphere caught my eye and the food and service did not fall far behind. The table ordered many appetizers, entrees, and sushi to share which was a great idea so that we could try the menu! Will definitely be back again.

My companion and I had a great dinner! I highly recommend the Tuna Tacos or Pork Belly appetizers. My meal, the black cod was tasty and cooked perfectly. Our dessert, the S’mores was one of the best desserts I’ve tasted in a while (and I’ve been around!). The service was great, very attentive staff. We love eating here during our Napa visits.

A very nice location to sit outside far apart from other diners to ensure health and safety. The staff was incredible! Very professional and helpful. The food was delicious if slightly overpriced. I would recommend the restaurant two friends.

I enjoyed my dinner by myself. I ordered a salad, i think the salad size is big, but not so special....I also ordered Chef sushi special, very good, nine pieces with a roll, not excellent but very good for the price. Then I ordered 3 special pieces, absolutely love it, the Uni is excellent, fresh, melt in my mouth. The dessert is good. The services is superior, the waitress made me very welcome and sweet. I forgot to put on my mask when I finished the dinner, a resturant staff asked me to put on which I was embrassed by my forgetfulness, but I think he should be friendlier to tell me instead of ordering me. Don't like his attitude.

Korean short ribs special was a blast of flavor, paired with Kim chee and rice was perfect balance. The black cod was melt in your mouth and the hamachi carpaccio was perfect. Sashimi was fresh and beautifully presented. Best meal in years.

Their sticky ribs, spicy tamarind glaze were fall off the bones goodness were, very well seasoned and super delicious! The hamachi sashimi were fresh and Japanese uni were fresh and tasted like butter. The kakuni, ten-hour pork belly, rice congee, soy-scallion jus was just melted like butter in your mouth yumminess with the right amount of sweetness. and for the birthdaydessert the lime white chocolate ganache, coconut foam, mango sorbet, yuzu tapioca pearls was amazing! The sake tastings (morimoto and premium) were good. The service was great and friendly. All were great experience!

It was a lovely day for outdoor dining. Was disappointed that they didn’t have the salmon skin roll but the food we had was outstanding. Ordered the ribs, tempura shrimp and Brussel sprouts.
Service was spot on.
