    This place is phenomenal from food, service, to atmosphere. I went to celebrate my 10 year anniversary with my husband and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Yun was very attentive and gave us honest suggestions which turned out to be the best dishes in the house. Kyle our host was super friendly, checked in on us once in a while and answered all the questions we had. Would definitely recommend the A5 Wagyu Ishiyaki, Roast duck, Sticky ribs, Fish Carpaccio, and Kakuni Bop!

    A Waikiki favorite. The food is exquisite, service is impeccable and views of the ocean better than anywhere. Come early before the sunset and sit outside. Ask for Manu, best in the business. Morimoto is paradise.

    Excellent take on modern Asian cuisine… our dishes had beautiful flavors- Miso Black Cod was outstanding and the deserts were showstoppers. Excellent service from all waiters especially Joe . Real team work environment noted - no one walked past our table and left plates sitting that needed collection. All staff extremely knowledgeable about the menu.

    Amazing service and Food. Best waiter I have ever had. All of his recommendations for PuPu's, Dinner and Sake were spot on... The A5 Wagyu was definitely the highlight of the evening. Planning on another trip back for my birthday. Topped off the evening with a signed copy of Morimoto's cookbook... What more could anyone ask for in a Dining experience... Would recommend Highly to anyone that considers themselves a full blown FOODIE...

    The sticky ribs and dim sum appetizers are delicious. The main entrees were ok. Nothing special. The whole fish was good, but not very filling. Do not book through open table if you want a table overlooking the ocean. I was told I had to special request this seating by the hostess when I booked. I booked two months in advance. There are better restaurants close by in my opinion.

    This was our 2nd time dining at a Morimoto restaurant, the first being last year in Maui. The Maui experience was amazing. The location and dining experience in Maui were elegant and the menu was more extensive and superb. The flavors at the Waikiki restaurant were also delicious but it was a very different dining experience. It was much more casual and had a more corporate environment. I would still recommend it for the food but it wasn’t the dining experience we were expecting.

    Eating here was a wonderful experience! The cocktails were creative and delicious, the wine selection was robust for bottles, adequate by the glass. Our appetizers were stellar; the fish carpaccio was simply divine! It was really hard to decide on our entrees because everything looked so good. We settled on the half a roast duck and the Ishiyaki buri bop, and both were to die for! We topped everything off with the flamin chocolate sphere, and left raving to each other as we walked down the street.

    Let me begin with how much love the Morimoto chain! Superb service as expected from a Morimoto. Too bad the menu is so limited here. How is it possible that a morimoto restaurant not have nigiri?!?! Very disappointing. Will not come back to this particular establishment until their menu is more complete. Cheers!

    Thank you for ruining our anniversary. Service was horrible. We did order bottle of the Sauvignon Blanc , salad and 2 entrees. Wine came after the salad course and was not really good. Entrees, we did have this dish many times and was the worst ever. Manager was not very helpful either. We did have another reservation for week later but after this experience we did cancel and booked Roy's instead.

    This was an incredible experience. We were celebrating being recently married in Hawaii. This was our 1st official date night as newlyweds. Our waitress, Courtney, was amazing. We can’t remember her assistant’s name, but he was great as well. The food, the service, the ambiance.. all chefs kiss!

    We went with our server suggestions and they were awesome. Started with 3 ounces of A5 Wagyu and instead of using the sauces we used sea salt and that was spectacular. It was like butter and you tasted the high quality of the meat. Entrees were duck and whole Branzino fried. The duck was cooked to perfection. I love duck but the Branzino was the star in the entree round. The chef deboned it prior to cooking. I did happen to find a couple pinbones but it didn’t detour me from eating every last bite. I forgot to mention the sake was smooth and fruitful. We didn’t have room for desert until we saw it at a table next to us and it looked to good to pass up. We ordered the chocolate ball set on fire with 151 tableside. Needless to say there was nothing left when we got done. Highly recommend this place!!!

    I'd recommend ANY dish with Wagyu beef but the Wagyu gaprao rice is to die for... So good in fact that we ordered it FOUR times at dinner to share amongst FOUR people! The staff is phenomenal and Joe paired our selections perfectly with sake. I've been here twice this week!
