Morimoto New York
get the popular dishes. ask the waiters. the toro is amazing the steaks are amazing. staff is very attentive. food is wonderfully presented.
Overall a good experience. A nice ambiance and decor. Our waiter was great and the staff was very attentive. The food was really good, not great. Very expensive and most portion sizes were very small.
Pas d’ambiance et les prix sont exagérés
As always a great experience.
Food quality is drastically down to were it once was. But on top of that you get one of the worst table service in nyc. The only constant is a rip of price. First time ever I give a 10% tip but in reality there should have been no tip and honesty food should have been half price. DO NOT GO. Save your money. I will try to tell as many people as I can DO NOT GO!!!
I had a great night. Thank you!
Went to Morimoto to celebrate a birthday and just... wow! Everything we ate was absolutely phenomenal. I will definitely be back.
It was great!! Service was spectacular!
Was excited to try Morimoto NY as I love trying new sushi restaurants. I was very disappointed with the experience. While the nigiri I had were all delicious, everything else was sub-par including the service. I expected so much more from a leading chef's establishment. Would not recommend going here as there are tons of other places that are delicious and less pricey.
Ho mangiato il miglior sushi solo dopo Tokyo, squisito !!!
Great food, very original and tasty !!
This just wasn’t the same Morimoto that I have loved for years. It’s always my first dinner every time I’m in NYC because in the past, the chef’s tasting menu and wine pairing has always been a memorable meal. That wasn’t the case this time. Other than the first course of tuna tartare (which is better than the old tuna tartare course which I loved), it wasn’t very memorable. The A-5 Wagu was the only other course I even really remember and I just ate there two days ago. Also, the service was rather terrible. After taking our order, we did not really see our server again. It took more than 25 minutes after our last course to finally be able to grab someone to get our check. I’m just overall disappointed in what is one of my favorite restaurants. I will give it another try on the next trip, but if they blow it then, I won’t be spending my money here as Nobu also has an excellent tasting menu.
Everything we had hoped for. Our favorite dish was an appetizer of grilled eel with seared foir gras.
Sushi offerings had exotic fish, e.g., barracuda
Desserts were also creative and unique
Really pleasant patient servers who do not make you feel like an ingnoramous when you ask about the various fish and ingeditents
Ok. Our expectations were big. Iron chef, super famous, selling his book as you walk in. Truth is... it was good. Nothing wrong with it, unless we are being picky. But at this price point and the expectations of anyone that walks thru the door, it’s ok to be picky. Let’s say if you love Nobu this place is different. Nobu goes dark and focused and Marimoto goes light, minimalistic on decor and for the masses with the food. It’s a friendly Japanese restaurant. Everyone will find something to like. Kinda like Cheesecake Factory. For foodies that is a slap for the Walmart crowd, you will find something to eat and love it. So there. Good or bad? Depends on your expectation.
Food was excellent and loved the atmosphere.
Very good service.
We brought a group of 9 out of towners to Morimoto and they were blown away. Food and service were excellent! This is not an inexpensive restaurant but it certainly was worth the price.
Great energy and overall vibe. I can see what the hype is about. Friendly service and non typical Japanese food. Thought the food portions would be small but ended up ordering too much and filled up. Would return. Travis the GM came by for the added touch.
This might be the best sushi I have had in NYC thus far. They have some really good Japanese fusion cold and hot appetizers and great sushi. The staff was incredible. I was told they keep their fish in a -250 degree cooler that kills all bacteria-great for pregnant women. It is spacious and good energy also.
Very disappointed in quality of food, both my dishes were fishy tasting, wouldn’t recommend to anyone.
One of the best Japanese food that I ever had in my life. Everything was delicious, from the fresh fish, until the Kobe Beef that was really similar from what I had in Japan.
They put us right next to another couple. Needs to be spaced out more also a bit pricey
Forgot our appetizer but charged us anyway and claimed we got it.
Amazing. As always.
Amazing food and service! Yuku was a great bartender and service was amazing
Went there for a business lunch. I had the sushi combo. Everything was good, food, service and decor.
We are old fans of the original Japanese Iron Chef, and so we were excited to come to Morimoto's flagship restaurant on our short visit to New York. The ambiance upon entering was elegantly contemporary, and put us all in a positive mood. The service was friendly but courteous and efficient. The food was sublime - umame at every turn, beautiful presentations and amazingly delicate textures. A dining experience we will always remember.
Honestly, It was truly amazing. The interior is stunning & just when I didn't think it could get any more beautiful, I started receiving my food courses and they were so gorgeous and equally delicious.
Great place to have cocktails and good food!!! Best sashimi!
It was very noisy, could be just the tables we were close to
Wonderful server and reception, my client was very pleased with lunch and drinks. Exceptional service, thank you for a grand experience.
Restaurant was very nice. Everything good about it. Lunch boxes are a good value with plenty to eat. Sashimi was with better ,higher end less common pieces . good size all delicious. Uni and salmon roe combo nice also..
Amazing meal by the iron chef
Service was very slow and the food was less satisfying than we expected
Chef was not present. The kitchen took over an hour to serve our first dish. 90 minutes in we received our food. Have eaten here several times, this was unacceptable.
Hi end, well presented food with a friendly staff. A solid success.
Faced the same problem OPENTABLE reservation gets the worst table.Corner cold aznd you dont feel that you are in MORIMOTO.
The food was phenomenal! Our server was very knowledgeable and helped guide us to pick the best items. I highly recommend the hot stone wagyu beef and trying an assortment of fish. Everything was delicious. You can’t go wrong. It’s pricey but completely worth it!
It was wonderful. It is a bit costly, but for Morimoto, it is reasonable. The food there is amazing. The service is great and friendly. All in all, it was a great experience. My favorite thing is that they explained the meal to you and suggested how you should eat it, which made the experience even more wonderful. I will be back.
