We were heartbroken when the NYC restaurant closed. We had gone there many many times. But we were elated to go to the original Philadelphia location. Drove 1 hour and 40 minutes in the rain and it was worth it all. The food is simply amazing as was the entire experience. Look forward to out next meal there the next time we are in the area. Try the combo sushi/sashimi with the sake flight. Or the black cod miso.

I last ate at Morimoto 20 years ago when it was new and I was young. It was one of the most memorable meals of my life. I was back in Philadelphia to visit and glad to see Morimoto is still around… and it did not disappoint. Another great Omakase memory.

Morimoto is one of my go-to places in Philadelphia. The menu changes every so often to keep you on your toes, but the staples are always the same. Can definitely get dressed up or down, and always receive amazing service

Really enjoyed the food and service. Only problem was the built-in phallic lamp right in the middle of the table. Problematic especially for 2 seater tables since not much real estate to begin with - hard to place plates for sharing.

We got married in the afternoon, went to the Philadelphia Orchestra in the evening, and came to Morimoto to finish off the celebration with a late night bite. The staff was so friendly, gracious, and congratulatory (it was likely the masks that we wore that said “Just Married”…). The food was glorious and was just what we needed after our late afternoon wedding dinner. The ambiance was relaxed and chic. We could not have asked for a more perfect end to a most perfect day. Thank you!

The food was good, but disappointing given the cost. The pacing of the omakase courses was very slow with a lot of time between bites.

Really loved the food, drinks, atmosphere and service at Morimoto. We started with delicious cocktails, then followed with the 7 course tasting menu & the beverage pairing to go with it. Pretty pricey, but the food and drinks ( a wine or sake pairing for each course) we’re utterly fantastic. Andrew, our waiter, was delightful and we will ask for him by name next time we go. Every course was delicious, and a fun way to try new foods. The Black Cod and the Snow Beef were incredible, as well as the sushi. Every dish was beautifully presented. This was one of the most enjoyable meals that we have ever had, and we have eaten in many fine restaurants. We will definitely return!
