Morimoto New York Ratings and Reviews
Three words: THANK YOU GRANT!!!!
He s a fantastic waiter, will grant your wishes(hence his name😉). Really always the best experience with him; he ll explain the dishes like noone else; make sure you take care of him as well.
Pretty place, food is great, sake, dessert very innovative, delicious; beautifully presented and entertaining.
Was very excited to visit but left extremely disappointed. It was so bad my wife and I actually went to a local sushi after because we were so hungry. Maybe we should've known better but we did the tasting menu. Not only was it barely enough food for a toddler but the tasting had no value to it besides a 1 ounce piece of A5 Wagyu which they could've kept. Extremely disappointed.
Order was extremely late. Order was mixed up. Sushi quality is mediocre. Sushi chefs inexperienced. Extremely overpriced. I have had sushi in a lot of places in NYC and elsewhere and for 355$ for 2people, I find this outrageously overpriced.
Service was absolutely horrendous. 20 mins in between omakase courses with nothing on my plate. Asked 3 times for another drink. $400 tab and mediocre food plus horrendous service means I'm never coming back.
Chef Tony visiting the table was a nice gesture, but I expect more from Morimoto and frankly any STARR establishment. I was really disappointed.
Upscale place with well thought out delicious, creative cuisine. Every dish we ordered was delicious, putting flavours together which match, however are often separated from each other. (ie. fois gras & unagi). Lighting is romantic & perfect for a date place or anyone who is a foodie.
Setting is modern and there is table & bar seating. Cocktail drink menu is good & there are some non alcoholic cocktails to choose from as well.
Excellent, nouveau style of Japanes cuisine! Iron Chef Morimoto never ceases to amaze his customers and followers with his various dishes. I was also impressed that depending on the season he also offers different types of fresh sushi/sashimi (ex. wild Alaskan sockeye salmon which was stupendous/delish!). In addition, service and ambience are top-notch. Would highly recommend for exquisite Japanese culinary delights and good times :)
Took my daughter, nieces and 4 of their mutual good friends after moving into their dorm for dinner. Everyone had an amazing time! Food was delicious! Services were wonderful! The restaurant is beautifully designed! Definitely coming back next time I'm in town!!!
I've been to Morimoto's multiple times in the past and enjoyed it (both here and in Napa), despite the prices and the celebrity chef overhead. However, this time the food was... OK. We ordered the Omakase - and for $160 each we should have been impressed with a least a couple of the courses. We were not.
I will not be returning.
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. It lives up to the hype and is worth the price. I’m not a major seafood fan and explaining this to my server he recommended some tantalising things to try that would usually be out of my comfort zone. Their premium ice cold sake was a delight. I’ve been a couple times and will continue going back - whether on my own, with colleagues, my s/o or in a group. They use the space really well that even sat at the sushi bar or when it’s a packed house, it still feels spacious and intimate. The hosts were warm and welcoming - not snooty like most meatpacking/ high end places. Your stomach will thank you for it even if your wallet is a lil sheepish. Morimoto for the win.
"Market price" for the sushi from Japan was an astounding $18 per piece. Normally I don't ask what the market price is; I never imagined that one bite of tuna would cost me $18, however. Listing the price would be helpful; I thought it would be similar to "local" tuna prices. Most disappointing was that our server didn't visit our table for a full 30 minutes between our sushi and our main courses. After that much time had passed I had run out of patience. If main courses are going to be late, a server or manager should definitely come over and talk to the table. We were offered dessert at the end, but I never imagined we would be ignored for that long in between courses.
We did the Omakase with sake pairings, and it was one of the best dining experiences I've had (I travel globally for business all the time). The creativity of the dishes, freshness of the ingredients, complements of flavors and range of sake pairings to the food was spectacular. Service was attentive but not obtrusive, highly professional and welcoming to boot. We arrived early so were able to try out the bar area, too, and the specialty cocktails ('Morimacha and Moritini') both excellent. With the Omakase, sake pairings and cocktails it was close to $250/person but for a special evening and world class food I do recommend.
The staff were amazing. We accidentally broke one of the glass cups and they cleaned it up so quick like them NASCAR people that polish the cars during the race. Also, they were very helpful with the menu. We were guarded from over ordering, which is something we often tend to do so appreciated it. They forgot one of our orders and instead of questioning us, they said they'll put it on the house and bring it to us. Also, it was my girlfriend's birthday so I called prior to have the fiery chocolate ice cream be ready for us when we have dessert. And they took it out with a candle all ready for us. And it was complimentary! Love this place. My girlfriend loves it too. Will return soon.
One of the most amazing meals I've had in a long time - the Omakase was brilliant, diverse, beautifully plated, each one tasted complex and married intense complementary flavors in satisfying plates. The oysters with foie and uni were the most perfect and luxurious bites of food. The sake pairing evoked notes of truffle, citrus, were described articulately by our charming, courteous waiter, Alex who helped make this anniversary incredibly special for us. The chefs were also fun and interactive. The deserts were creative, sweet, tart, so many textures. The kasutera was rich, silky, flavorful, aromatic, and had constant surprises from crab and mushrooms. The wagyu was rich and flavorful. I hope to go back over and over. We were treated well from entrance to exit. The care in every bite was evident. A wonderful experience all around.
Wonderful Meal, loved the design we were in a crowded resturant but the design made it seem like we were private dining with our family.
Gave it low for value as it is an expensive restaurant , but certainly worth the expense. Lots of celebrations going on that night..
There was an error with our bill, we paid cash at bar for drinks prior to sitting, and they inadvertently charged us again for drinks on the dinner bill. We didn't pick up
On it as we were 8 people drinking quite a bit. The resturant manager called the next day to let us know what happen and to apologize.
They settled quickly with us and were sincerely apologetic about it. What a way to do business, honestly with integrity... imagine !!
We will definitely return..
