This was one of, if not the best meals I have had. The food was excellent and each dish was perfectly balanced.
Morimoto is where our son chose to go for his 14th birthday! Everything was absolutely great! Our server was incredible - attentive and knowledgable. We will be back for sure! The dumplings and the pork belly were delicious! Our entrees and sushi were perfect! My only complaint was that we made our reservation through open table and posted that it was a birthday celebration. We received a call from the restaurant confirming the reservation and that it was for a birthday. The caller asked if we would like a candle in the dessert for our son to which I said yes... And there was no mention of the birthday or any candle. Based on he level of service we received, I'm assuming the birthday celebration was not communicated to our server. I didn't think to mention it when we were seated as someone had called to confirm and I didn't want to be naggy. It was a communication error but it certainly cannot reflect on the high quality of service we received from our server!
My coworkers and I had such an astounding culinary experience here. I can't suggest the chef's choice meal enough.
Great ambiance, great service, great food. Our server Josh was very helpful and professional. My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time out on our special night. Thanks Josh!
Always delicious five star food, and the service and decor are impeccable!
Omakase was an incredible birthday treat. Thank you!
Great restaurant for non-typical Japanese food. We had wonderful duck filled buns as an appetizer as well as spicy shrimps. Duck duck duck entree was off the charts with tea smoked duck breast and a great rice with it. We also had some specialty sushi Japanese butterfish to finish. We loved it all.
The service was great and the quality of sushi was unbelievable. Drinks options were also good.
Loved the atmosphere and the service was great.
The Australian filet was amazing. The sauce fantastic and the asparagus was perfectly cooked.
The dumpling appetizer was on point as was the rock shrimp and the spicy king crab.
I personally was disappointed with the sushi. But could have been an off night as my family always raves about it.
Food was delicious and the service was top notch. Third time there and can't wait to go back.
Amazing as always
The food was very complex and sophisticated with numerous taste surprises as you went through every course!
We've had an omakase meal in Japanese restaurants in New York, Washington, and Philadelphia. Morimoto ranks the best out of all the meals we experienced. Taste, presentation, service, and ambiance are all of the highest quality. We could not have been more satisfied. Simply the best.
It was absolutely amazing, albeit pricey. If I could, every steak I would eat from here on out would be from Morimoto.
The chef's tasting menu is always an excellent option, with most courses not being found on the menu. Our meals were 9 courses long and well paced. This is a go-to restaurant whenever in Philadelphia and never disappoints.
Great food and outstanding service from Fedra. We come here whenever we are in Philly and we are never disappointed.
Service and food was amazing. Would definitely recommend to anyone and will be back again. Only thing I didn’t love was that it was very loud in the restaurant.
Great atmosphere, service, and meal. Everyone was very knowledgeable and helpful
The server was so nice! Delicious food. Even the man who called to confirm the reservation went above and beyond.
normally excellent service, this time sub-par. the secondary server (busser / water filler) was much more present that designated server. food more than makes up for it!
Iron Chef Morimoto was in attendance last night and came over to our table to wish my daughter a happy birthday. Was a special treat!
Came for early sushi dinner on a date. Great sushi and service. All of the sushi is fresh and several come with a domestic or Japanese option. Drinks are properly balanced, highly recommend the plum wine on ice.
This place was amazing! We had the best service. We loved our waitress, so helpful and nice. We will be back very soon!
I wasn’t too impressed with the duck. Should have stuck with the sushi. Service was lacking.
The best lunch I’ve ever had. You must get the tasting menu. Best sushi, interesting and tasty dishes. the service was great. I also went with the drink omakase which was well worth it.
Chef's tasting menu was off the charts. Highly recommended for a special night out. The service was impeccable - dishes, gorgeous. Atmosphere is beautiful, zen and on point. Honestly the best meal I've ever had. I never leave restaurant reviews but was inspired this time. Do not miss when in Philly!
Outstanding food and service from start to finish. Amazing sushi and sashimi, hot apps, cold apps, specials, main courses and desserts. Two hours of quality dining.
Such a treat! We had a wonderful time! Great service, ambience and exceptional food!
Fantastic Food and Service, decor and lighting perfect. Just a great experience
The service and food were both amazing. I will be returning soon
The "Tasting menu" with matching wine/sake is the way to go.
Fantastic! Every time I’m in Philly, I go to Morimoto. Truly world class.
Everything, food and service was spectacular
I've been waiting for years for the opportunity to dine at Morimoto's original restaurant and it didn't disappoint one bit. The staff at Morimoto are extremely friendly and approachable AND are incredibly well versed in everything being offered at the restaurant. Those dining at Morimoto should be sure to take the time to absorb the information and knowledge coming from these servers - you'll have greater excitement and anticipation for your meal and you'll walk about a bit smarter as well. I had the omakase offering - all the dishes were excellent and some took me to a food euphoria I didn't know was possible. Where as soon as I took a bite, my mind said: holy cow, I didn't know it was possible for something to taste this damn good! Thank you to the chefs, the staff, and to chef Morimoto himself.
Normally I would rate higher for the food as I normally do because this is my favorite spot to go but this visit was different. Seems they changed their menu and the omakase offered changed as they use to offer 2 types, seasonal and normal. Now they only offer 1 being a basic omakase. Now the food was ok but not what I expect from Morimoto because of past experiences from this location and the NYC location. I hope they will offer the seasonal omakase again.
Excellent service and food!
One of the best meals I’ve ever had. The quality of the food, the creativity, all combined for every dish to be a tasty surprise. Highly recommend it
Great food, very good service--the among best sushi I have had.
Great atmosphere and food. Friendly staff. My fiancé loves his sushi and was blown away by the freshness and quality! Would recommend for a date night or a fun deviation from the normal night out.
