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.

Morimoto rimane uno dei migliori ristoranti giapponesi di New York.
Questa volta abbiamo mangiato Miso Soup sushi (ottimo)e degli ottimi dessert
L’atmosfera è molto piacevole e il servizio molto professionale. Il prezzo non è basso ma è nella media tenuto conto che ci troviamo a Manhattan . Noi abbiamo speso 120 dollari a testa con un buon vino ma si può anche salire di molto in funzione del vino scelto e del fatto che si mangi solo sushi o meno. Consigliato sicuramente.

The spicy king crab legs were delicious as was the tuna tartare. I had the sea bass, honestly the best I have ever tasted and my husband had the sushi combo, great also. All in all a great experience, excellent drinks, phenomenal food, only downside was not seeing Morimoto himself.

Went for lunch. I wanted to love it, but just liked it.
Pros: Nice space, good service, unexpectedly large portions
Cons: Food was good, but somehow I prefer my local Japanese place as there was nothing particularly special about it.

If you're on an expense account, go for it.

Very fufu sushi designed for mass American audience. Tipoff is few Japanese people here if any. This means over priced and over presented food. That's not saying the quality isn't good because it was good. But my knock of one star off is for the general experience. And for the sake costing way more than it should given what is served. Having said that the wait staff is attentive and the food quality is great. But I am kind of henna gaijin about these things.

Loved the rock shrimp tempura. Tempura Lobster maki wasn’t fantastic—lots of cilantro and lettuce. Sushi is the way to go here. The nigiri was some of the freshest I’ve ever had (salmon, yellowtail and fatty tuna. Daughter loved the creative pork gyoza. Atmosphere is great unless you’re facing a back wall. Tables are tight, so check your coats at the door. Don’t miss the restrooms. They are very cool.
