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 :)

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 had gotten our drinks & 1st course when the power went out. I can’t say enough about how the staff handled the situation! They were perfect! We had to leave but made a reservation for the next day before we left. So excited to go back & try out the rest of the meal!!

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.

We were celebrating so decided to do the tasting menu, It was excellent! So fun to try a variety of different items, and everything was really good. It was a little pricey for the amount of food that you got, but for a special occasion it was fun. Our service was outstanding. Unfortunately, the air conditioning wasn't working very well during one of the hottest days of the year. They were very apologetic and did get it going before we were done. Overall, we really enjoyed it and I would definitely recommend.

Took my daughter and her friend to celebrate their graduation. The food, atmosphere and service was impeccable! Our server, Hannah, was spectacular. She was informative, personable and very attentive to us. When we go back, we will definitely ask to have her again.

The entire staff was courteous and professional. It made for a great night out for dinner!

My initial reaction wasn’t positive as the hostesses were rude AF. Just stared at us, didn’t greet us and acted like our presence was annoying them.

But once we were seated, our server was wonderful, the ambience was lovely, and the food was great. The white Lilly drink was so good. Would definitely come back! Reminded me a lot of Zuma in New York.
