The food was very high quality. The drink and dinner menu was massive, but our server took the time to ask questions and make recommendations that were on point.

Been here 5 times and it’s amazing each time. Best rolls we’ve had yet are the rockstar, mr. Perfect, cripsy seattle roll and pike place roll. The calamari is to die for with the sauce and the salad it comes with is great. We had a miso mule which was 10/10 and the vinho verde which was good too. The server was attentive and super nice. Definitely recommend this place for all sushi lovers.

they kept the dining room open for our party, even though they had hoped to close early and contacted us asking us to shift to an earlier time (which was not possible for us to do!)

great service, very kind people. music was too loud, but they did turn it down a peg or two when we asked

This place used to be amazing, but the service has really fallen off. Perhaps pandemic related. The food is good, but quite expensive. The service is spotty, and food can take a very long time, as they have a LOT of to go orders. It can be “yelling” loud in here, as well. I’m enjoying momiji’s SLU location more lately.

One of the best HHs in Seattle. Sushi is excellent, ginger chicken is excellent. Usually the calamari is very good, but was a little bready this time around. Would still get again. The miso mule and martini are both very good.

Our server was fantastic, and our food was equally delicious. However, we had a sour taste in our mouth from the start of the meal due to the rudeness at the hostess stand. Our table was not ready 10 minutes after our reservation time, and the hostess made us wait outside the restaurant in 20 degree weather. Then, we saw a group waiting for their table inside, and we went in and inquired about our table, and asked why we were forced to wait outside while others were not. The hostess rudely told us she was waiting for the other hostess to arrive - that’s why we were not seated. Then, she told us there was a 1.5 hour dining limit for a table of 2.

None of it added up. We were forced to wait outside, while other parties were not. We were not seated because of another hostess? And, if there was a 1.5 hour limit on tables of 2, why were we waiting 10+ minutes for our table?

Luckily, our server was so nice, and our food was so good, I would come back to Momiji. However, the service at the hostess stand needs improvement.

Honestly, the sushi was just okay. I got the medium omakase set and it wasn’t anything fantastic or new. And for $80, I actually thought it was a bit of a waste. Service was pretty mediocre and it seemed like my waitress had forgotten about us for most of the night.

The hostess was friendly and quickly worked through our party's vaccination cards. She was already a star as she allowed my last-minute increase in our group.
The service was fast and very accommodating. Our server entertained a number of questions about the menu and was helpful and kind throughout our evening. The food was excellent and beautifully presented. We ordered the miso soup, chef's choice sushi Omakase, and two different specialty rolls. All of this was more than the five us could eat, but we ate it all nonetheless. Everything was delicious.
There was more ambient noise than I would have expected, but that did not detract from a great evening.

The hostesses were incredibly kind and our server was speedy, attentive yet non-intrusive. I felt very taken care of. I ordered the Niseko Spring cocktail (described "like a piney martini"), seasonal mushroom saute, oyster shooters, Moonraker and Legend of Kaiju rolls. All delicious and recommended!

The bartender was cool at first then he was not taking my order for a drink and for food. I had to flag him down several times. But he did take care of the guy next to me who arrived 15 min. after me. He took his order for drink and food quickly. I don't know why he prioritized him, also he offered the happy hour menu to him and not me. I hope he finds a career he has a passion for. Clearly this job is probably not for him.

I really enjoyed Momiji. The food was delicious and the happy hour prices were really good. 2 appetizers, 2 rolls, and ice cream for $27. I will definitely be coming back! The only negative was that it’s so popular that they requested we only stay for an hour and a half, so I felt a bit rushed. Would like to come again at a different time where I can relax a bit more and take my time. Overall great experience.

Momiji is my go-to restaurant for when I have friends visiting Seattle. It’s a great atmosphere, quiet enough to hold conversation, but busy enough to know it’s good food. The food itself is delicious and the kitchen is open to watch the chefs prepare the sushi and other meals. I have never had a bad experience here and would recommend it to any local or visitor.
