Everything was as amazing as you would hoped it would be. Multiple sushi rolls, nigiri, lamb, and an excellent dessert recommended by our waiter. Rich was fantastic and made the whole experience for us!
Cool spot downtown. I got the morimoto omakase and the sake omakase pairing with the course. I found the dishes “adventurous” yet not overly extraordinary as to alienate people. The service was excellent and the server, Richard, was very informative and helpful throughout the dining experience. Price can probably deter a lot of people, but I’d say it’s definitely worth it.
One of the best meals and service we've had in years! Staff was insanely attentive (but not in an overbearing or rushed way). Kudos to our server, Sam, and every single person who brought us food. Their knowledge of each dish and drink is to be commended. Our water glasses were never empty. A finished plate was not sitting idly for more than 60 seconds. Every single front of house employee touched our table at some point.
We did the Omakase Tasting menu. Soooo worth it! Every single course was executed flawlessly. Every bite was more delicious than the last. Already planning on making the trip back to Philly again soon just so we can dine at Morimoto.
Outstanding food and service.We would return to this restaurant again and special thanks to our server Richard who was excellent!
We had an excellent time celebrating my daughter’s graduation. Our wait staff and food was awesome, and we just had a really fun evening. Thank you for making it a special evening!
Great. Sam was very nice and professional
Morimoto is just as good as it ever was. Maybe better as It wasn't crowded or hurried as a popular restaurant can be. It seemed to me that the quality of ingredients was even better than I remember it.
After an awkward start with the super standoffish, unfriendly hostesses, our server, Sam MORE than made up for it. She was so professional & warm and gave incredible recommendations. We ordered everything she recommended, from our cocktail, appetizers and sushi and we loved everything.
The food service and ambience were absolutely amazing!
A fantastic space with great service and excellent food.
Amazing experience. We had the chefs tasting menu. It was an amazing experience.
It was my first time at Morimoto and I love it. The ambiance was lovely and the service was excellent. The food was top notch. The pricing is on the expensive side but it's worth it. It was pleasant experience. I would visit again in the future.
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
The food was amazing. From the sushi to the steak. Throughly enjoyed this meal.
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.
