    During my recent visit to Momayama, I was thoroughly impressed. The sushi, expertly served by Scott, was exceptional in both taste and presentation. The bar service was equally commendable, providing a seamless experience. The restaurant's atmosphere struck a perfect balance between elegance and comfort, making the dining experience even more enjoyable. What stood out the most were their innovative dishes, showcasing a creative flair that is rare to find. The highlight, however, was their salmon selection. Each dish featuring salmon was prepared with a mastery that accentuated its natural flavors, leaving me eager to return for more. Overall, Momayama is a gem that offers a memorable culinary journey

    Such an amazing experience! Love the authenticity of the restaurant and its food, which is delicious and fresh. We enjoyed the beet and kale salad, gyoza, "The Lobster" roll, and green tea ice cream. The service and ambience are wonderful and I would highly recommend anyone who seeking Japanese cuisine that will tempt your tastebuds, especially on special occasions like a birthday, please make MoMoYama your place to go. I know we will!

    Momoyama was a fantastic experience. Rachel was our server and she was such a breath of fresh air. So friendly and knowledgeable of all the fish. We went twice during our stay we enjoyed her so much. Definitely ask for her and get the toro flight and the A5 wagyu. The 5 oz serving was a more than generous portion.
