A rarity in Philadelphia - somewhere that is delicious and high end but not pretentious.

Definitely one of my favorite restuarants in Philadelphia, although a little pricy but well worth it on a special occasion. I went here with my boyfriend to celebrate Valentine's. We didn't try the omakase (which I wish we did) but the Duck Duck Duck and Rock Shrimp Tempura were amazing.
We also had the 45 Chef Combination.
Food took a little longer to reach our table but still good!

When you visit Morimoto, you must always try their omakase but today was different. Today's omakase was Valentine's day themed so it was different. All in all, always a good experience here. See u next time.

We could not have had better service. Alex ( I think that was his name) was there we we needed him. The food was amazing. It was my wife’s first visit and she has not stopped talking about it. While it can be pricy, there is good value is what you pay for.

The “Duck, Duck, Duck” entree was one of the best meals I’ve EVER had in my life! The sushi combination was extremely fresh and tasty. A bit pricey, but well worth it for a special occasion. I’d been wanting to eat at Morimoto for years, and it definitely did not disappoint! I look forward to having the Omakase on my next visit.

Outstanding. My husband and I had the classic omakase and it was worth every penny. The service was impeccable and prompt, never overbearing, and every server explained each dish very well. As for the food, I didn't know fish could be that buttery and melt-in-your-mouth amazing. The black cod with miso was alone worth the price of admission, and I'd go back just for that--but the 7 other dishes were incredible, too! The skate with dashi was the epitome of umami, and the duck was rendered beautifully. We left feeling full and pampered and will absolutely be back some day.

My wife and I dined at Morimoto in Philly on Saturday night. Once we entered we were immediately asked if they could take our coats. We were then taken to our table. The restaurant has a sleek white decor. Our waiter Kevin approached shortly after being seated and thoroughly described the menu and told us the night's specials. Besides the food being very good, the service was even better. We will return.

The food is pretty good but not for the price. The service was very good and the atmosphere is really nice. This is the 4th time I have visited this particular Morimoto's and it will be my last. The Orlando location is far better.

Had a recent lunch at Morimoto and had a fantastic experience. Food was outstanding, as was the service. The restaurant was surprisingly (and thankfully) not busy, so we were able to converse easily and let the meal progress at a leisurely pace. The lunch sets were a very good value. Definitely would go back!

Everything was good except the broth snd the salad were a bit salty and the fish were all diced up too small in the chirishi. Other than that, everything were good.

The service at Morimoto is exceptional. The wait staff is attentive and professional. It seemed that they understand that the menu can be intimidating for people not experienced with Japanese cuisine and take time to be helpful. The ambiance seems a bit stale, as it hasn't been updated since I was there 10 years ago. I was less than impressed by the dress code of other patrons. While we were dressed in dress-casual, there were people in hats and plaid shirts. The food was phenomenal. The kakuni pork belly was fantastic, as were the desserts. Morimoto flavors all their sushi with a dab of wasabi, and on about 50% of our pieces there was too much wasabi and it overpowered the flavor of the fish. I think it the future I would ask for it without wasabi and apply it myself. Overall I was satisfied with our experience, not blown away. I would still recommend it to a friend as an interesting blend of flavors to experience
