    Everything you’d expect from the creative genius of Morimoto. Inventive, beautiful and fun, not to mention truly delicious from first bite to last. One of the best meals I’ve ever had.

    Exceptional dining experience! Our server, Evan, was amazing and gave great recs. We got the tasting menu because we like to try things that we might not be inclined to order. Everything was really wonderful, but the tuna tartare and the lobster course really stood out. Highly recommend.

    We loved almost all of the dishes. The least favorite was the fish stew because of the broth. Unfortunately, the tiny Japanese peaches that we adored previously are not on the menu. The waiter was fine but the kitchen was somewhat slow so the meal for the two of us approached three hours. We were thankful for the gratis drink in honor of our 46th anniversary.

    It was incredible but expensive. The young man who delivered the courses was pretty perfunctory and very difficult to understand. I know it’s been difficult to staff restaurants, but when a meal for 3 costs over $500, your expectations are high. The food was delicious and our waiter was knowledgeable and attentive.

    The moment you walk in the ambience is warm, yet sleek modern. The food was superb, more specifically the thoughtful selections from our server Lenny were on point. We had such a great time, make sure you get the desserts also.

    We arrived on time for a 630 reservation and ordered right away, knowing we had to leave at 9pm to grab a train…and we almost missed our train!! Food took painstakingly long to come, and although the manager came to apologize, no free drinks or any other concessions came with waiting over an hour from last course to sushi being served. Food when it came was very very good though.

    It was Halloween Monday, so it was pretty empty, but not their fault. The food on the other end was not very fresh (specially the sashimi!) Not the best pieces of fish displayed at the sushi bar, and for that price, I thought it was unacceptable.

    We celebrated my daughter's 21 st Birthday here. The Morimoto Omakase was excellent and so was our service from beginning to end. The only thing that should be adjusted is the volume of the music and selection for the atmosphere.

    Took my boyfriend for his Birthday. We ordered the morimoto omakase and sake omakase. Both were very delicious and definitely an experience. Our only disappointment was we upgraded with a wagyu course for $70 a person and it was very fatty. It was almost inedible.

    Omikase menu was good. I’ve eaten here over 20 times in last 5-7 years. This year - notable change: Each item was very well prepared and delicious. However, quantity is reduced significantly from years past. No meat in the menu unless you wanted a $70 up charge. Otherwise only fish Last course of sushi - only 5 nigiri compared with 8 in the past. Portions all quite a bit smaller than last year. Disappointing for value. Service was very good.

    What a wonderful dinner. Food was amazing. Oysters were so fresh. Sashimi tuna was so good. All of our sushi rolls were out of this world. We loved everything about our meal. Our waiter, Isaiah was so knowledgeable and friendly. Great atmosphere Great vibes I will definitely be back when we attend another a show at the theater. 10/10. Perfect.

    The food and drinks were extremely overpriced for what you get. The ambiance and service are both amazing but it wasn’t worth spending so much money on. Tbh felt a little bit of a scam. I got the california roll and it didn’t even taste fresh

    For the price point and the hype, it was not quite what we were expecting. The setting was nice though a little cramped, server wore an almost pained grin but was polite enough. Drinks were good, sake was great, appetizer special (duck gyoza) was delicious; more than 4 dumplings would’ve been nice though, as it was our shareable. The sushi was delicious but portions were lacking. Rolls were average, nothing spectacular there. Beef udon soup was extremely oily and the cuts were leas than desirable. As a whole I’d say it was a good meal but for the price and the menu options we won’t be going back.
