We dined at the counter, which I prefer, because I like to watch the sushi chefs at work and each dish is a work of art. Our server, Hanna, was a delight and her recommendations were spot on. Tuna pizza was delicious and spicy, hamachi ponzu and rock shrimp tempura were winners as well. They no longer have green tea noodles, which was a disappointment. I tried Inaniwa udon, chilled wheat noodles, but I didn't really care for them. Black cod miso will be my selection next time as another diner ordered it and it looked delicious. My bf always orders sushi and is never disappointed, as a matter of fact, he RAVES about it. This is a great dining choice and I'd eat here weekly if I did live so far away.

I don’t know where to start. The quality of the ingredients is phenomenal. The technique used to create the food was superb. The service excellent. What sets this restaurant apart is the consistency in execution and exceptional fish. The homemade soy sauce to the real deal wasabi to the edamame cooked perfectly in a bonito broth or shellfish broth to boost the flavor and make a standard issue a sublime masterpiece. My mother had one of her best meals and she was happy. She is also not a fan of deserts and went nuts over the deserts as they were well thought out and executed and not too sweet. Amazing. Cannot wait to return!

I’ve been to Morimoto many times over the years and this was really one of the best dinners I’ve had in my life. End of story. We want to Nobu in Newport Beach the other week and it did not hold a flame to Morimoto so keep up the good work!! We’ll be back soon once I can replenish my bank account lol. Worth every penny!!

We had the Omakase menu and it was amazing 8 courses altogether- portions were just right so you did not leave feeling too full. The taste and texture of each dish was exquisite. Definitely recommend for a special occasion.

Food was good but a bit over priced. Service was extremely attentive, to the point of being a tad overdone/pesky.

Had a really great omakase. Highlights included the snow wagyu, the beef and tuna tartare, all sushi, and a spectacular dessert. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a special date or to treat themselves to a pricey meal (because you deserve it!).

Food was amazing and so was service.
One of our dishes accidentally was sent to the wrong table. Not only did they not charge us for that dish but they also brought us a second dessert free of charge. Totally unnecessary but so kind of them.
The only downside was that it was difficult to find the door. It is not obvious and the sign is easy to miss. The outdoor seating sign was really helpful

This was our first time and we decided to try the Morimoto Omakase -- something we've done never before and every course was as good or more delicious than the next. The restaurant was busy, but not noisy, and Scott -- our waiter -- was amazing. Definitely would recommend.

We had an amazing dinner! Everything we had was delicious. It was a bit loud but nothing that ruined the evening! The yellowtail roll, king salmon and fiery chocolate were the standouts of the night!! The area around the restaurant didn’t seem overly safe.

Have eaten at Morimoto's in the past and while the food was good, it was not at the level I believe it was in the past. Omakase is not about the quantity of food but the quality and presentation of the food. I would say it was average. I have always considered Morimoto's superior to Nobu, however after this last dining experience I think I would give Nobu the nod. When Morimoto's first opened Chef Morimoto was there often and I believe with the expansion of his brand the Philadelphia location has suffered. Please note, food was good, service and ambiance outstanding, just not up to the level I have experienced in the past. Some of this may have to do with the Pandemic, as I was surprised by some of the fish selection and was wondering if it had to do with fish supplies internationally.

Took my boyfriend here for his birthday! Overall the food was excellent. Loves the tempura rock shrimp! The entrees were a little bit lack luster. The sushi was amazing though and we got the combo to try things we wouldn’t normally get! Would come again for apps, drinks and sushi!

Fantastic food with excellent and thoughtful service. Very accommodating to both vegetarians and non-vegetarians. The Ishi Yaki Bop with Tofu and the Kalbi Lamb Chops were outstanding -- as were all of our dishes. We have always had an extraordinary experience at Morimoto.

Harmonious progression, colorful dishes, ending on a sweet note. Did the house omakase. Best dish was the black cod miso, expertly cooked so the fish flaked easily and the crispy skin tasted great. Dessert was a tasty buttermilk panna cotta with chantilly, feuilletine crumbs, and peaches. Absolutely worth it.
