Morimoto is the New York City interpretation of Executive Chef Masaharu Morimoto’s namesake Philadelphia restaurant that is co-owned with restaurateur Stephen Starr. Designed by world renowned architect Tadao Ando, the restaurant’s entrance features the world’s largest Japanese Noren curtain set against a massive façade of austere steel. Inside is an extraordinary open kitchen surrounded by a 24-seat sushi bar where diners can watch Morimoto and his chefs at work. On every level of the restaurant guests enjoy the elaborate menu where East meets West. Glass partitions create a private atmosphere between tables and a wall made of 17,000 spring water bottles add a touch of New York drama to this tranquil atmosphere. Guests have the option to dine on the top floor or congregate in the lower lounge for cocktails and snacks.

One of us was a vegan. One of us was gluten-free and dairy free. We were seven people and only one person had tasty food. That was the rock shrimp. The amount of tartare that one got in the salmon and yellow tail was minuscule. Almost laughable. The vegan diner felt as if he was eating dishwater and didn’t count it all… Amazing that they couldn’t come up with something more palatable and interesting and flavorful. Very disappointing we will Not return to this restaurant. And the service was so so sloppy sloppy sloppy. Not very nice people.

Excellent food, excellent service. My only complaint, for the sake of pointing it out, is that the bathroom is hard to find and it took three employees to get me there because of the maze-like placement of it. Amazing steak and sushi, though!

Amazing! My boyfriend and I are huge sushi fans and this did not disappoint. The restaurant has such a modern vibe and the service was lovely. The food, though pricey, was incredible. Would definitely reccomend the bone marrow! A must for any sushi lover.

If you're looking for a quiet date night spot go elsewhere! This place is loud!

Don't skip the ramen it is delicious!

Servers are attentive but not intrusive.

Make sure that you use the restroom!

All in all would def recommend. It's worth the experience.

Morimoto was an absolute amazing experience. Our waiter knew what he was talking about and had excellent customer service skills. I love when waiters get on a personal level with the customers, he mentioned knowing a lot about these specific sweet potatoes because he had lived in Japan for 3 years. The food was hands down the best Japanese food I have ever had. I’m so glad we chose this place to celebrate my 21st birthday. I will definitely be coming back when I’m in New York next!!

Wonderful food. Wait staff is extremely attentive. Just waited a bit long to get my food. My food was not that hot. It my guest’s food came hot. Timing of food preparation must have been off. Lovely place. Would dine again.

We ordered the tasting menu and the Fugu upgrade. We were excited because this was the first time that either of us had Fugu. However, it wasn't identified during the meal and we had no idea which course it was. We mentioned this and they brought us a photo of the course which neither of us recognized. Rather than argue, we moved on. Very disappointing. The tasting menu was otherwise quite good. The sushi was particularly good. Social norms being what they are, I still left a substantial tip. There are too many great Japanese restaurants in New York to ever go back though.

We love this restaurant and keep coming back. It is so convenient when you visit the Whitney , Chelsea market or anything else in the Meatpacking district. The food never disappoints. And the decor doesn’t seem to age. It will as cool and modern as when it opened. This time we went for lunch, and both the sea bass and the cod were delicious. The cod is always a standout!!

Such a disappointment. The music was too loud and the tasting menu though delicious was overpriced. There should be three more playes it $40 less.

The staff was exemplary.

I tried every dish on the table and everything was good except the dish I ordered, the duck, duck, goose. The flavor was alright, but the way it was cut made it so much work to eat the dish and I eventually gave up on being able to eat more than half the dish.

Since first watching the original Japanese Iron Chef in the early 90’s, Chef Morimoto has been a favorite of ours.

Morimoto’s in Chelsea is an absolutely fantastic experience! The creativity, freshness & taste of the food is off the charts! The service is extremely attentive & knowledgeable, & we particularly enjoyed our waiter Jack. The handcrafted cocktails were refreshing & delicious! This was our second visit to Morimoto’s & we are so looking forward to our third!!

From the time we walked in, to the time we left, the service was so attentive and pleasant. Everyone there was super nice and accommodating. The wine list is pleasantly rich with some unexpected choices. We tried a few appetizers a lunch box with rolls and a chefs choice of sushi. It was all very fresh and delicious. The burrata was creamy and mild - surprisingly a perfect complement to the sushi. Tuna salad was also very good.
