My boyfriend and I both got the omakase menu, I got the sake pairing and he got the beverage pairing. The food was phenomenal - such a fun dining experience. Our server was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The omakase experience is expensive, but so worth it for a special occasion. We sat indoors - the interior of the restaurant is beautiful and I would definitely recommend over the outdoor seating.
Celebrating having time with my daughter. It was an amazing culinary experience. We each did the omakase. While usually means sushi selection left up to the chef this was a 7 course wonder. We upgraded the wagyu to try the a5 for one of us and shared it so we could taste the difference. There was a very pronounced difference.
We had a knowledgeable and helpful waiter. And we sat at the counter to watch the chefs at work. Each minute of it was enjoyable.
Incredibly creative food. Excellent flavors. The cold appetizers are my favorite. I recommend getting several to try.
The food was immaculate. One of my favorite restaurants
We come to Morimotos on those special occasions when we want a memorable experience. The tuna pizza appetizer was wonderful as were our entrees. Our server was well-informed about the menu and helpful in making suggestions. We look forward to our next trip to Philadelphia.
We celebrated my daughter’s graduation from PENN. Richard and team made it a special celebration and the food is always fresh and fabulous! Thank you!
Unforgettable experience. Amazing
We had such a wonderful experience. Everything was amazing. The service was excellent, everyone was so friendly, and most importantly, the food was delicious. The s’mores dessert is top notch! Highly recommend Morimoto.
We have eaten here many times and it's always amazing! There is something for everyone!
Outstanding and unique experience as always. But never cheap!
Always great food and service!!
Everything was perfect, food was delicious. The wait staff was very knowledgeable on the entire menu.
Stellar. We loved it. Morimoto is one of our favorites and we’ll be back. The dumplings are astonishing. The king crab is ridiculous. Go!
We took our daughter and her friends for a Sweet 16 Birthday celebration. The food was amazing, the service was excellent and great with our party. Everyone got to try something new.
The food and drinks were excellent. The sushi is extremely fresh and well prepared. Highly recommend the tuna pizza - bad name for an outstanding dish - don’t let the name turn you off. The restaurant has a chic vibe with great lighting. Only thing we didn’t like was our dessert - fiery chocolate. It was a great presentation with the fire poured on top tableside to melt the chocolate ball. However. there was so much alcohol on it (to make the fire) that the chocolate was not enjoyable - it tasted like lighter fluid.
Hanna's service was excellent and the food was outstanding
Great until there was a leak in the ceiling and water came down on us. They gave us one free drink lol
Hello, we are truly sorry that your experience interrupted by the rain! Glad our manager was able to assist you right away. Thank you for your feedback and look forward to seeing you soon!
Probably the best steak and sushi I've had. Everything was amazing.
Food impeccable except for rubbery octopus at omakase meal
The food wasn’t as good as I thought
Hello, we are truly sorry that your experience wasn't up to your standards. Please know we take these matters very seriously and will be reaching out via private message to further discuss. Thank you.
Our first indoor dining experience since the pandemic, and it was lovely. We ate socially distanced, in a beautiful booth. This is a high end, expensive restaurant. It earns the right to be such through the attentive service, the beautiful surroundings and the quality of the food. Our group had both sushi & sashimi plates selected by the chef, and a hot salmon dinner which was wonderful -- perfectly cooked and flavored.
We had the chefs tasting menu and it was a perfect way to experience the morimoto experience. 7 delicious curated courses and great cocktails. A really wonderful birthday celebration. Also the staff is wonderful.
All was great! An excellent tasting menu. Very well thought out and executed’
Best dining experience that I have had in Philadelphia.
Morimoto was one of my favorite restaurants anywhere. It's still very good, but in my view, no longer extraordinary. Friends who have gone to Morimoto in NYC have told me that they were disappointed. The food was very good, but no longer "made in heaven". Service was OK - and why do they have so many people at reception who can't seem to get their act together and are more of a nuisance than a welcoming committee? They did a nice job keeping the feeling of openness by adding plexiglass partitions to the half-walls of the booths. So kudos there. If you're looking for great Japanese food, it's still a good choice. Just no longer the very best you could hope for. So tamper your expectations down and you'll have a wonderful evening.
Our daughter picked Morimoto as the destination for her 17th birthday family dinner. We dined in the outdoor pods--which are great (and more private and quiet than dining indoors anyway). Service was excellent and attentive. Enjoyed a wide array of sushi, appetizers, drinks and desserts.
Amazing food, great service. I recommend the waygu dumplings and the black seared cod. Both amazing!
Excellent food, service, and ambience. Omikase somewhat pricy, so order ala carte to be easier on your account.
Food was amazing as was our server!!
We sat outside and got the Omakase for a celebratory dinner. The food, service, ambiance, etc. were extraordinary, even though the weather was not ideal. We were comfortable the whole time and had a wonderful meal. Highly recommend!
Very pricey! Not worth for the food served. Restaurant need to review prices?
Excellent food, great service, fun ambiance!
Omesake is great. Portions are a bit small tho.
This is the review you’ve been waiting for! My wife and I dined out in Philly for the first time in 18 months because of the pandemic. We figured our first trip out had better be to a great restaurant that would make us feel at ease. So we chose Morimoto. The restaurant delivered on all fronts. Morimoto is now offering outdoor seating in about 8 small structures right out front with tables that seem to fit about 4- 5 people Max. They are pretty nice. Those can be a tough reservation to get so we sat inside. Inside they have plexiglass dividers between all tables and they appear to have taken some seating out. No paper menus. All servers wore masks, eye shields and gloves. Patrons have to wear masks except when seated at table. We felt very safe. We splurged and each got the omikase tasting menu for $125 each. It was about 7.5 courses with some really unique and wonderful items, including a sushi course, a wagyu beef course and dessert. It was great. We also had some mixed drinks and a glass of wine. Our waiter John was great. He was totally charming and understood our night on the town vibe. We were really looking forward to this meal and had really high hopes and expectations and I’m happy to say those expectations were fully met. Highly recommended.
Thank you for such a wonderful review. Nothing pleases us more than to hear that our guests thoroughly enjoyed their dining experience at Morimoto. We look forward to welcoming you back soon for another 5-star experience!
Great experience and amazing food 100% recommend!
I have always enjoyed dining at Morimoto's for their Omakase, especially their seasonal Omakase. Check this place out for a casual and memorable experience.
Felt a little rushed for our tasting but I understand it is covid.
Thank you for the feedback and we are sorry to hear about the pace of your meal. Our goal is to provide the same and even better service we had pre-covid; your feedback will be shared with our team. We hope you will visit again and allow us to exceed your expectations.
