Place was awesome as usual. Shota is the best waiter in the restaurant by far request him
The lunch meals are so generous and delicious!!
Cozy environment. Excellent quality and amazing flavor food, presented in detail by the attendants. The food is a work of art from the aesthetic point of view. Without a doubt the best sashimis I have ever eaten. The service was polite and efficient. It was a memorable experience.
My husband and I went to Morimoto for the first time to celebrate a late Valentine's Day dinner and sat at the sushi bar for the chef's tasting (omakase). Everything about the experience was exceptional, both the food and the service. The dishes were creative and delicious. It was well worth the high price tag and I highly recommend it.
I've been to Morimoto a few times over the years, but hadn't been for 2-3 years until last night. We wanted sushi and it was a special occasion, so decided to do something above the usual. Very disappointing. The interior is getting stale - the same as when it opened - and the service was lethargic. We had the chef's tasting and within 2 courses I was served the only thing I said I didn't want when they had asked at the start. That was corrected, and then the time between the next couple of courses was much too long. Dishes were removed, but then 10-15 minutes passed before the next course was served. The drink pairing (wine and saki) was fine but not outstanding. The whole experience, at $400 for 2, was really a value abomination. I won't be back.
Eating at Morimoto was an experience and one the highlights of our trip to new York City
We had terrible service, the food was really subpar. The fish did not taste fresh. Told them in my reservation it was my husbands birthday and they never mentioned it or did anything special. The waiter was rude. We will never return here.
Well this was my second time in Morimoto. The food is always amazing. I had the surf and turf, my steak was cooked to perfection! The smoked salmon melted in your mouth it was extremely fresh. The only problem I had was with the service. The waiter did not check up on my meal, I had to wait to order a drink because he never came by to the table to see if I wanted anything more. I had to basically flag him down to order additional drinks from the bar. They also brought my dates dinner first and I sat there and waited, so rude when your starving. The food makes up for the terrible service. The waiter was the problem not the host or the bus boys. What kind of waiter doesn’t let you finish taking your order? And I spent well over $300. Anywho I hope they fix that.
This was one of the best dinners we have ever had! All of the restaurant personnel joined in to not only provide excellent service, but to make sure we had a great experience! We sat at the sushi bar, and the chef made some rolls just for us based on our tastes. We had the tofu made table side. There were so many layers of flavor!
Food and service were excellent.
Absolutely amazing all the way around! The food was out of this world! If you have never experienced Umami, this is where you will find it! Looking very much forward to our next trip!
Another fabulous night enjoying martinis and amazing food. Found the downstairs lounge after also, so that was a bonus! 😁
Incredibly fresh, great presentation and awesome service- go for the chocolate bomb at the end!
Even though we had a reservation and we were on time the hostess was trying to accommodate a rather persistent customer who did not have a reservation and wanted a nice table in the main dining room.She made us wait because she kept chatting with this person and we reminded her she was rude and somewhat condescending...after being seated right by the door ( probably the worst table) we decided not to make a big deal and enjoy the great food.
It's a shame to have such a person work in that position there.
Although it’s expensive it was a great meal!
