The appetizers were great. Especially the Wagyu carpaccio.
The entrees were lack luster.

An incredible overall dining experience!! The decor was ultra-modern and unlike other restaurants. The food was delicious and many dishes were prepared at the table. The service was superb.

The food and service is always the best. The Wagu Dumplings and Duck, duck, duck were a nice surprise on the menu.

If you have problems picking something ask your server, they always have great recommendations

The food was very good. The service was excellent with honest waitstaff providing opinions on dishes. We went because we had a very generous gift card. However, I am not sure we would return. Nothing against the place. It was a great experience. However, the prices were very high. We barely drank at all, yet spent $300+ including tax and tip. A lot of the price is for the ambiance. Again, it was fantastic. Just very high priced.

We have been to Morimoto many times but this visit was particularly poor. We waited 45 minutes past our reservation time to be seated. We ordered food, which was all delicious, but several dishes we ordered did not arrive and had to be brought later. The manager was very apologetic and gave us free stuff we didn’t want or ask for. Some of our favorite dishes were the Black Cod, sashimi, and tuna pizza.

My wife and I were celebrating a late Valentine’s Day. From the moment we walked in we felt like we were at a VIP lounge. We were a half hour early for our scheduled reservation so we were told we could hang out in the lounge upstairs and have a drink. The drinks were phenomenal and when our table is ready someone came up and got us and took us to our table. Our server Justin was well-versed in the entire menu including the wide variety of sake. He made our experience even more enjoyable with his knowledge and with his passion for the restaurant. It is pricey but it is well worth it. My wife and I highly recommend the dining experience that we had on Sunday night.

Excellent food and service. We sat at the counter and got the omakase. The meal itself was incredible. Morimoto allowed one of us to order the omakase and the other a la carte, which was fun since we were able to get everything we wanted. Service was top notch - attentive but never intrusive. The counter experience didn't allow for any direct interaction with the sushi chefs as one might expect at a sushi counter, but watching the chefs was still entertaining. Overall it was a little loud, but we were there on a busy Saturday night so that's to be expected. Not so loud to the point of drowning out conversation. A fine experience, I'd go back.

What an incredible experience! My husband and I were blown away by everything: our server, Josh, the ambiance and delicious sushi! Just perfect. Out of this world the best sushi we have ever eaten! Can’t wait to return back for a visit when we are back in the city. Compliments to the chef’s and staff.

It was okay? The sushi/sashimi was fine, though it wasn’t omakase quality. The dessert was good though. Would I recommend? Probs not, I had better sushi elsewhere.

The food was not what I expected. Very one dimensional flavor wise. I was very disappointed . I waited 2 year’s to come in and I must say I am more upset that it was a waste of hundreds of dollars.

Outstanding! Celebrated my 70th birthday with my wife, and this meal might be in my top 10 in all those 70 years! Service was impressive. I had the 7 course omakase. Delicious, just the right amount of food, sauces to die fo, and every thing was so fresh! Had a kinkaku cocktail, ok, two, and I will be trying to re-create it. It was that good!!

My wife and I went on an early valentines date here. Our waiter was fantastic. The food was amazing and the decor was great. You have to try the fatty tuna and the shrimp appetiser. I forgot the name of it, but it was bloody delicious.

Fantastic ambiance, friendly staff and most importantly incredible cuisine. The meal more than exceeded our expectations, and our waiter was incredibly helpful in navigating the menu. I feel the quality of the experienced matched the price point, and thus a very nice value for special occasions.

Took boyfriend for his birthday. We ate a lot of food. We did the chef choice sushi platter. Sushi was the best of everything we ate, very fresh. We had wagu dumplings, they were good, sea bass, good, but wasn’t expecting it in a broth, skirt steak was excellent, duck fried rice was sub par. We had 2 desserts, they sounded good, but did not taste good all. I didn’t love the tables, we were at a 2 top table and there is a light in the middle of the table that can’t be moved, makes it more difficult for sharing when you have multiple things on the table. We would go back again for the sushi!

This was my first time, which is a little embarrassing, but was well worth the wait. Did the tasting menu — it truly is a unique dining experience. Though the price feels high, I get to travel the country and world and eat in amazing restaurants and this was the most unique, amazing-dining experience I have had. I don’t know everything that I ate, but at least 5 of the 10 courses offered something truly different (something new or a completely unique preparation).

I ordered the ramen but it tasted more like chicken noodle soup. I was disappointed as I have read reviews about how great the ramen is supposed to be. I was majorly disappointed.

This place is the mecca of sushi. they have a great selection of sushi probably best in the city , even exotic ones from Japan . We went a la cart ... it was a birthday dinner for a first timer at Morimoto . She loved it . Cocktails were spot on . We started with wagyu dumplings and rock shrimp tempura ... our waiter was great .. he knew the menu to a tee and service was perfect , no hovering , we followed up with sushi , ( tuna and red snapper and a California and spicey veg roll . Duck.. duck .. duck was recommended which I ordered and my girlfriend order the Succulent shellfish Toban Yaki . We could barely eat and bite for it was sooo good .. a candle was sent out with a small pre dessert of coffee gel and coconut cream (Classy move)and we ended our experience With the ginger ice cream box with ginger snaps .. it all worked perfectly .I expected to spend over 200 but my one issue was the valet .. on website the posted 15 and 22 for valet parking , well when I pulled up the valet , who was very friendly even though it was freezing , told me it was 30 and preferred cash . So I paid him 30 cash and actually tipped him a 10 because thats the cash I had . He parked my car right out front and was very kind . I just want you to be aware that you should bring some extra cash if you’re going to valet . Great experience plan to go back for a sushi tasting night .
