About Morimoto New York
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 New York Ratings and Reviews
I go once a month and once again I came away with a better experience then the previous if that was possible... I can't stress how amazing the service is, our waitress Sarah was phenomenal as was her support staff... Her knowledge of basically everything was beyond impressive and her recommendations were spot-on. I always ask our server what they like and they've always come through. The food was as always FRESH... always order the Toro, it'll change the way you think about sushi... Enjoy!!!
They let us stand at front doors with cold wind for 20+ mins, because all 6 of us are not presented at same time. I told front desk we will have 6 in the end, but comes in at different time. But we are still standing there for at least 15 + mins. This is really embarrassing as all my important clients are just stand over there, with nothing to do, not even offered a cup of tea or water. And I was asking the waiter 3 Times, to just to have my sake refilled. (But my waitress was great, she did perfect job). Beef was great, but the sushi and sashimi are not so impressive.
This was a very disappointing experience. The service was spotty, the food was mixed, some excellent , some very mediocre . Its a beautiful restaurant and we spotted several celebrities, but we were not treated commenserate with the price and reputation of the restaurant.
Planned romantic birthday dinner during trip to New York City. Because of this famous chef's reputation is world renowned, our expectations were reasonable.
The servers failed to coordinate who would be taking our order which led to a little confusion. The menu was limited. After selecting a duck entree , I was informed they had run out. Not acceptable. Demonstrates poor management and planning. Understandably, things happen but the server should have stated that when we were given the menu to review. He did not provide any comparable substitutions. The restaurants signature appetizer was unimpressive. The kitchen took such a long time to prepare our entrees that they provided edamame. The restaurant was not extremely busy and apparently there was a problem in the kitchen.
This place is overpriced for no reason. Don't waste your money.
This is our new #1. We had the tasting menu with the sale/wine pairing. The first item tuna tartar and caviar has to be the single most delicious item I’ve ever tasted and each dish after was wonderful. The e6 wagyu was equally fabulous. Not one weak dish in the whole lineup. It was our first time dining at Morimoto but I think we are going back next week.
What can I say....what an increible experience!!!! We ordered the chefs tasting menu. You get a real good idea about Chef Morimoto's style. Each of the 7 courses was delivered by such knowledgeable servers who explained each dish in detail. Highly recommended and will return!!!
The Omakase with wine/sake pairing was a totally pleasant and wonderful surprise. I thought it was better than O YA NY and about the same as O YA BOSTON. TOTALLY SPECTACULAR. I would and will go back. Service by John from Boston was spectacular and complemented the food.
A must for Japanese food devoteés.
