Not recommended for the COVID-phobic. Nearly every table is occupied. Otherwise, food is as superlative as ever.

Our dinner at Morimoto's was one of the best dining experiences of my life. We dined out during the COVID pandemic, but that didn't stop anyone from being amazingly friendly, warm, and inviting. We were worried that the health measures would detract from the experience, but they didn't at all. Clearly, the staff at Morimoto's worked hard on incorporating the mandates without taking away from the joy of eating. We ordered the Omakase experience and it was worth every penny. We ended up with 8 courses and each was more flavorful than the last. Our servers were friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. The after-dinner pairing with Hot Bed, their neighboring art gallery on the second floor, was amazing. A quiet stroll through the gallery was the perfect way to end the evening. We cannot wait to eat more at Morimoto's.

Food was outstanding. We shared ramen, a kobe beef dish, and black miso cod. Each dish was delicious. A bit cold outside, but they did the best they could with heaters. Would probably wait to go back until can go inside.

We had another WONDERFUL dining experience at Morimotos. Front row seat with the sushi chefs while enjoying the saki sampler and chef's recommendations sushi sampler. The flaming dessert was the perfect way to end our anniversary celebration! Will not wait so long before visiting again. Many thanks to all who made the evening special. Lisa & Eric

A friend and myself decided last minute to book a day of reservation, we got a 7:45 reservation and showed up about ten minutes early.

We checked in and were asked to wait outside, while it was chilly I am really happy they asked us to because I some restaurants I have gone to allow people to accumulate by the hostess stand and it’s just not a safe feeling to have to squeeze by people at a time like this.

We were sat after waiting for about 6 minutes and were waited on quickly, even with the place being pretty busy.

We got our drinks and placed out order in a short amount of time.

Drinks were amazing! And we got our apps. Shortly after we got our food. I unfortunately did not realize the Dish I ordered had egg in it and the server noticed my face and something was wrong, as I really don’t like complaining at restaurants. He fixed it immediately and within 12 minutes they brought the dish back without the egg. Please note this mistake was 100% mine, I should have asked if it had egg or meat in it.

The service was great, food was amazing, and the outdoor huts were perfect with the heaters provided.

10/10 will be back!

The food was fantastic and beautifully presented (as were the drinks). However some things that could have been better. First, if you do not eat pork please note that the chicken ramen is made with pork. As this is a fairly common Kosher / Halal restriction I wish this was mentioned on the menu since it was actually the reason I came there (they could not sub in a chicken or veggie broth). Second, the service for outdoor dining was very slow and the outdoor heater turned off a bunch of times before they finally got us a new one. I still recommend this place and will be going back in the future when indoor dining is safer, but keep in mind the outdoor experience is not great (at least it wasn't for us).

Thank you so much for the feedback on Morimoto Ramen and outdoor experience! I will reach out to you in private as well so we can take good care next time you join us indoor in the future.

The waiter was rude period. I hold food experiences dear to my heart, and this encounter ruined the evening. However, still left a very generous tip.

The food and the drinks were amazing! We started with the Wagyu dumplings and they were INCREDIBLE! It was a bit chilly to dine outside, but not uncomfortable thanks to the seating arrangements, heaters, and plastic covering us for the most part. We will definitely be coming back again.

The special of the evening appetizer of the short ribs lettuce wrap was so tough we couldn’t eat it. We were supposed to use our hands but couldn’t bit it off. We had to return it. The sushi was fine, good, but there were new specialty rolls on the menu. The dessert was phenomenal.

Excellent service and ambience. Food is excellent but not anything out of this world as you would hope for the name and the price, but a great destination restaurant when you have the urge to spend some money. It doesn't disappoint.

I was expecting better... a few of the dishes were outstanding; Sushi, Rock Shrimp, and Hot Rock, the rest were just meh... the wagyu beef in the udon was cooked so much it was really like jerky, and was extremely salty. Ambiance would have been fantastic if not for eating on the street due to Covid.

Great restaurant always one of my favorites and yes we are all truying to help out restaurants during this crazy period of time but if your going to build these outdoor structures you need to have heat by customers feet not just above their head. We froze our a@@es off so too cold will just stick with take out or wait until weather breaks in the Spring.

We had an early res - 5pm - the staff seemed overwhelmed with take out orders, and left us waiting for about 20 minutes. Not very efficient at taking temps - the hostess got too close to us (def not 6 ft away). Once we were seated, the evening was delightful.

Thank you for your feedback from NYE and your patience at the door. I feel terrible as 15 minutes is a long time especially in cold weather. Your voice is very helpful and we would like to improve our service from this. Hope you could join us next time in much more comfortable setting. Apologize again and look forward to seeing you in the near future.

We loved it! Due to covid; it was outdoor dining only! Each table was in their own cubby, to increase social distancing, and we had our own huge heater. Table had this awesome light and even a hanging light! Also, one of the managers even gave us blankets! We were worried bc it was December that it would be to cold, but we were so comfortable. Food was amazing, ambiance was amazing. Couldn’t recommend enough!
