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.

Tried it out for restaurant week... the portions were small ... so be prepared to order extra if you are hungry. we actually paid for 3 restaurant week meals for two people as we were super hungry. Their Star was the marinated tuna from their restaurant week lunch menu appetizers section and their black cod from the entree. Thei chicken meatballs had a nice interesting char to it but not memorable in terms of a dish. The steak and peppers was average and while the meat was great quality.. it was chewy. Instead I would order the sashimi. Definitely try their signature White lily cocktail ( made with the likening of Japanese vodka and Yuzu) which was refreshing and citrusy and paired perfectly with the food.

Ambiance of the place makes it worth the visit. A must see decor.
I went with my daughter who is 13. Food is excellent. Thou the sushi had hidden wasabi in it. So be careful with the first bite.
We sat at the bar. Worth it if looking for a food experience. But also great for a sophisticated date.
Will visit again.

Incredible food. Service was good except for very poor management. Two drunk guys by our table who were very loud, obnoxious and vulgar. Even after a complaint, there was no management around to deal with the issue and it affected us and the two other tables around us. It ruined all of our meals.

Had such a great experience. From our server being great, to the manager bringing me a shout stain wipe and hot cloth when I spilled food on my pants, to the amazing food- I would definitely recommend Morimoto’s to anyone looking for a great meal and experience.

Great service. Everyone in there seemed to have checked on us at some point during our dining experience. We had the seasonal tasting and everything was well thought out, beautifully plated, and absolutely delicious! Very expensive. Definitely once in a life time experience to eat like a iron chef stadium judge. So glad we went! What a wonderful memory we made tonight!

Got the holiday omakase. The only thing better than the incredible food was the impeccable service. The waiters were like ghosts who came and went and cleared the table in an instant without you noticing.

They dropped the ball and forgot about us after we finished our meal and left us waiting for our check for 40 minutes. Had to stand up to get their attention. Would not deter me from going back again for the amazing food and atmosphere.
