Wonderful experience - server felt a little pushy to move us along in our dining experience although we befriended another couple at the bar who were giving us some great recommendations and conversation.

It was very loud and hard to hear.

The beverages, food and service were the best. We had the tuna pizza and wagu dumplings as a starter that were so good. Then sushi and sashimi which were so fresh. Great date night.

The food was amazing. We both did the Morimoto Omakase (the seven course tasting menu) which was pricey but so worth it. We ate food we never would have thought to pick out ourselves. It was perfect!

We had a great time celebrating a birthday! We enjoyed the Omakase, one with a beverage pairing and one with a sake pairing. It was all delicious and we enjoyed sitting at the sushi bar, getting to interact with the sushi chefs.

We had a girls night here and selected the Morimoto omekase for our dinner. The omekase was beautiful designed and executed, as were the beverage options which were different for all of us. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the food and drinks - especially the sake. We hope to be back soon!

Another fantastic evening at Morimoto. My wife and I chose to sit at the Sushi Bar and had an early reservation as a precursor to seeing Roadrunner at the Ritz 5. We were going to go a la carte as we didn't think we had enough time for an Omakase. Once the staff heard about our conundrum, they graciously noted that if you do want to go with the Omakase, we'll make sure that you're out of here on time for the movie.

We did decide to do the Omakase as last time we were there, was just post re-opening after the pandemic shutdown and it wasn't being offered. Not only was it the right decision, with a number of new items on the menu, but at no time did we feel rushed, and made it out of the restaurant with ample time to get to the Ritz.

Kudos to everyone on the Morimoto team that made our evening really enjoyable.

If you’re looking for a unique, high end, boujee environment then morimoto is definitely the place. The atmosphere was great, the food was top quality and worth the prices. Everything had great flavor, was cooked well, and the service was also great. Overall I can’t say enough good things :)

Could wait to come back after Covid. Chicken ramen just as good as I remembered. Tartar fabulous as well. Loved the wasabi rice. We got the Wagyu beef- it was really tough! About 1/3 to half steak couldn’t be eaten too tough. I love this place and will be back must have been off night. Newer waitress for got drinks but it happens- overall 7/10 night.

Service was okay but the main waitress was a bit snobby or uptight….also it is still covid but they seem to linger OVER your food to explain what it is. Honestly I have had better sushi and Japanese food for the price. But you never know if you don’t try.

We were a party of four, all having the omakase menu. AND they were very busy so some courses took a long time to come out but we enjoyed talking with our friends and the staff was all clearly working hard. We had a great time and enjoyed the food immensely.

My daughter changed her dinner plans and wanted to come with us. We had to change our party of 2 to a party of 3. They graciously accommodated us. The food was amazing! I would recommend the black cod miso and the wagyu steak. It was a belated anniversary dinner for us and they presented us with champagne and gave my daughter a dessert to say “congratulations and good luck on her tournament” (we were in town for her fencing tournament). The desserts were so delicious too! Our server was attentive, knowledgeable, and very sweet. Thank you for a great evening! I would recommend this place to everyone who comes to Philly.

We wanted to love this place, unfortunately we ended up hating it.

We had better food at our hotel!

The watered down Ramen was salty and trivial. I’ve had better Ramen in Chinatown in DC!

The chicken was fatty and undercooked. No one asked how the meal was. Not worth the money. You’d get a better dining experience virtually anywhere else.

We thought the Morimoto name meant something.
