Absolutely amazing experience..pricey but worth every penny..if you are not a local parking may be a bit of a hassle..but once inside it was perfectly smooth, booked ahead and table was ready within 5-10 minutes of arrival..I had mentioned it was my first anniversary, they went out of their way to make it special..as for the food, the chefs combination sushi platter has a lot of variety and is plenty for 2, the fresh tofu (made at the table!) was delightful..will go back for sure

Morimoto is consistently wonderful. The menu is fresh and varied and as always creative and fun. The service is exceptional and it's apparent that staff is well trained and educated and not just "servers."
I look forward to Morimoto because I know that I will be well treated and be offered something I cannot get anywhere else. Three of us enjoyed lunch and really loved everything, especially the Kobe beef and the Uni. My go to here is sushi because it's exceptionally done. This is my happy place and I'll return.

Great dinner. We all were able to order a variety of dishes. Service did take a little while and some of the guests did not get their orders until checks were handed out, but the restaurant was kind and took those meals off the bill. The table space was large and fit everyone perfectly, as we were a large group of nine. The ambience was fantastic and lively. Would definitely recommend going there, great sushi.

Spending new years eve here was a fantastic experience! The food was great, I highly recommend their duck duck duck dish. The party gifts and complimentary drinks were also a nice touch to end the night.

There was miscommunication for our order. My husband had the New Years pre-fixe menu and I had ordered the black cod and wasabi rice. He was almost done with his 7 courses when my meal came out. Also, I ordered sushi rolls just because I was still waiting on the food. I thought dinner would take about an hour to maybe an hour and a half. However, it took about 2.5 hours and we missed the fireworks. Overall...a really really slow and not-so-good experience. Definitely not worth the $300 bill.

My husband and I made reservations for NYE dinner. From the time my husband and I walked in it was nothing but professionalism. Our waiter, Kevin, was very knowledgeable about the menu. I had the Lychee martini, which I’ve never had before and it was sooo good. We ordered shrimp tempura and wagyu dumplings. They were both amazing! The shrimp was piled high, not just 4 or 5 shrimp on a plate. It was enough for two big eaters to enjoy. For our entree’s, my husband chose black cod and I had Chilean sea bass. Both of those pieces of fish were DELICIOUS!! They just melted in your mouth. Seasoned perfectly, cooked perfected. The experience was awesome, the only thing thought would’ve topped that would’ve been if Chef Morimoto himself served us our food. We will be back again!!

We just wanted a simple and comforting lunch of soup and salad, and we could not have been more pleased. They have a lovely green salad and an incredible bowl of chicken noodle soup with the most divine broth. Excellent!

Amazing food. So delicate and elaborate.
The atmosphere was perfect, warm and cosy. The light was perfect : not too bright or dark. The design inside was interesting too.

morimoto was disappointingly americanized. the salmon avocado roll served with the lunch special was an odd choice. the sushi fish quality was fresh. green tea was too light, and served in steel pots with american tea cups. i understand if you want to charge for tea, but it should be refilled by the waiter. waiter service was not great. theres lots of staff, but we had to ask for the tea x 2 to receive it; and we ordered an extra miso soup, but never got it. sushi lunch is a better deal than the 45$ sushi. ramen was big for the price. decor is bizarre, almost fetal.

Fantastic experience for Christmas eve. Selection of sushi and Wagyu beef was excellent on the chef's tasting menu. Readily accommodated children and food restrictions. Food was eclectic and presentation fabulous. It was an experience of adulting not only the senses of tastes but also visual, smell was great. The service was excellent and made us feel like the only customers in the restaurant. Ambiance is very unique. My family and I loved it. Highly recommended.

This is probably the freshest seafood I've ever had.
I'd recommend it to anyone who's into sushi.
If you're not (like my wife) the duck is amazing. Duck breast, duck fried rise and a duck egg on top.
We also love the mushrooms. But I don't think you can go wrong.

Service is very good and the atmosphere is nice/casual and fairly loud/busy. Like a steakhouse vibe.

One of the best meals I’ve had and that includes Le Bernadin & Victoria & Alberts @ WDW. My husband did the omakase option and for the $$ it was fantastic. Best uni ( Japanese) I’ve ever tasted. We will go back.

Stemming from our positive experience with Morimoto in NYC, we decided to give the Philadelphia location a try. My 12 yo son, who has grown up eating traditional Japanese ramen, didn't like the taste of his ramen. Fortunately, my wife ate his meal. My 9 yo son found wasabi within his pieces of tuna and salmon sushi. Although there was wasabi served on the side, the menu didn't state there will be wasabi with the other ingredients of the sushi. Thus, we've spent some time removing the wasabi before my 9 yo could eat his sushi.

Service and food were absolutely excellent. Was there with my family for my son’s birthday. Wagyu on the hot stone was excellent. Sushi was great. It was awesome. A little loud - we didn’t have a reservation till 9, but by the time we left at 11, had slowed down and become less noisy. The lounge upstairs is a good place to have a drink before your table is ready. We’ll be back.
