Place was awesome as usual. Shota is the best waiter in the restaurant by far request him
The lunch meals are so generous and delicious!!
Cozy environment. Excellent quality and amazing flavor food, presented in detail by the attendants. The food is a work of art from the aesthetic point of view. Without a doubt the best sashimis I have ever eaten. The service was polite and efficient. It was a memorable experience.
My husband and I went to Morimoto for the first time to celebrate a late Valentine's Day dinner and sat at the sushi bar for the chef's tasting (omakase). Everything about the experience was exceptional, both the food and the service. The dishes were creative and delicious. It was well worth the high price tag and I highly recommend it.
I've been to Morimoto a few times over the years, but hadn't been for 2-3 years until last night. We wanted sushi and it was a special occasion, so decided to do something above the usual. Very disappointing. The interior is getting stale - the same as when it opened - and the service was lethargic. We had the chef's tasting and within 2 courses I was served the only thing I said I didn't want when they had asked at the start. That was corrected, and then the time between the next couple of courses was much too long. Dishes were removed, but then 10-15 minutes passed before the next course was served. The drink pairing (wine and saki) was fine but not outstanding. The whole experience, at $400 for 2, was really a value abomination. I won't be back.
Eating at Morimoto was an experience and one the highlights of our trip to new York City
We had terrible service, the food was really subpar. The fish did not taste fresh. Told them in my reservation it was my husbands birthday and they never mentioned it or did anything special. The waiter was rude. We will never return here.
Well this was my second time in Morimoto. The food is always amazing. I had the surf and turf, my steak was cooked to perfection! The smoked salmon melted in your mouth it was extremely fresh. The only problem I had was with the service. The waiter did not check up on my meal, I had to wait to order a drink because he never came by to the table to see if I wanted anything more. I had to basically flag him down to order additional drinks from the bar. They also brought my dates dinner first and I sat there and waited, so rude when your starving. The food makes up for the terrible service. The waiter was the problem not the host or the bus boys. What kind of waiter doesn’t let you finish taking your order? And I spent well over $300. Anywho I hope they fix that.
This was one of the best dinners we have ever had! All of the restaurant personnel joined in to not only provide excellent service, but to make sure we had a great experience! We sat at the sushi bar, and the chef made some rolls just for us based on our tastes. We had the tofu made table side. There were so many layers of flavor!
Food and service were excellent.
Absolutely amazing all the way around! The food was out of this world! If you have never experienced Umami, this is where you will find it! Looking very much forward to our next trip!
Another fabulous night enjoying martinis and amazing food. Found the downstairs lounge after also, so that was a bonus! 😁
Incredibly fresh, great presentation and awesome service- go for the chocolate bomb at the end!
Even though we had a reservation and we were on time the hostess was trying to accommodate a rather persistent customer who did not have a reservation and wanted a nice table in the main dining room.She made us wait because she kept chatting with this person and we reminded her she was rude and somewhat condescending...after being seated right by the door ( probably the worst table) we decided not to make a big deal and enjoy the great food.
It's a shame to have such a person work in that position there.
Although it’s expensive it was a great meal!
Busy night but still received very good service. Food was amazing and the presentation was even better.
Good ambience, terrible food. Definitely not recommending sushi. Go for maki rolls.
AMAzing food and service!!!! Love this place!!!
Excellent service and food!
Great ambiance and space. great food, a lot of attention to detail and a solid effort at creating unique dishes/rolls.
The food was amazing
Loved the chefs tasting
More reasonable then would have thought for a 7 course tasting
It was a great suhi experience, really fun place great food
It was my moms 80th birthday, the waiter took forever to greet us. My mom need help w the menu and he was not great at guiding the menu.
During eating the appetizers my sister dropped a condiment tray for her starter. She dreamed of this appetizer and the waiter came to take our order. I asked that he replace the condiment tray and he said yes right away. The try never arrived the waiter disappeared. When he returned he said what would you like to order ? I let him know the condiment tray never arrived he said oh what would you like to eat ???
We then asked the waiter on the side to prepare a special dessert for her 80th he replied ill just stick a candle on whatever she orders.
Fed up I went to the front desk and they prepared a special dessert.
The seating w a reservation next to the sushi bar, entrees not arriving at the same time. A waiter that was mia for our tables and the surrounding tables. This was my moms 80th birthday how shameful of an experience!!!
Lovely $600 diner for an embarrassing eve, way to go Morimoto.
Thank you so much for an outstanding evening. A perfect setup, service and, of course, food, together with the right attention to my wife's birthday. You are the Best!!!
OMG! So good. I had the chicken, wasn’t expecting much,
Surprisingly Good. Both desserts that we had were the best I have had in a long time.
Always a joy dining at Morimoto. The food is delicious and elegant. Even if it’s not a special occasion, dining here feels special. The wait staff and house manager are attentive and welcoming. Love it.
I went for restaurant week and the food did not disappoint or downgrade from their regular menu. Sure, the portions were a tad bit smaller but the flavors and freshness were there. I also added on the chef's $60 selection of sashimi and every single piece was worth it. Best dining experience in NYC in my many years of living here.
We came here for restaurant week. The ambiance and decor was on point, modern, sleekand smart. I like how they used glass as dividers so you feel semi-private yet the restaurant is still very airy and spacious. Food wise they only have lunch restaurant week, which consist of a bento box style tray and a desert. I got 10piece sashimi, which was good but not wow. The desert was outstanding though. I got the passion fruit sorbet, cream with sesame flakes. It was creative yet well balanced. Lastly we also got their signature toro sashimi appetizer. It came with 6different dips and each one of them is a good complimentary to the toro or in combination. Overall it was a pleasant meal, I would like to try other options of the main course next time around.
My cousins in from FL for girls weekend/wedding party celebration and this was the ultimate!! There’s not another sushi restaurant in New York, or anywhere else, that compares. From beginning to end an absolute culinary experience! Our Server, Shota, was exceptional and we will come again and again for the food and for everything that comes along with this wonderful establishment !
Probably one of the best dining experiences we have had for our annual holiday gatherings. The service, food and wine were exceptional.
