Came for my birthday and had a blast. Great staff, great food!
It’s our favorite go to place when we want to splurge a little.
Excellent food and great service, very good value for money
Great service, great atmosphere (ocean front), great food. Best orange chicken I have EVER eaten! Our server was so knowledgeable and everyone was very welcoming. A must do in Waikiki.
We received our three appetizers before we received our drinks.
And then our drinks finally arrived with our main course.
The food came way to quickly. Didn’t allow us to enjoy the experience.
Food was great and ambiance was beautiful!
Great food and atmosphere. The server was very attentive and helpful. The outside seating is covered and has a nice beach view.
Lovely food with great service. The popcorn shrimps were probably the best I've ever tasted. Quite expensive but you get what you pay for
Our food came out in a matter of minutes. One dish was cold and had to send it back. Took longer to heat it up and bring back than it did to make.
Food was meh for the price. Might as well have been a PF Chang’s with an ‘Iron Chef’ logo slapped on it. Very disappointing, especially for the price.
This was a very up and down dinner experience, overall nothing special considering all the amazing restaurants in Hawaii. We made reservations and still had a 30 plus minute wait, a couple of the appetizers were enjoyable but the primary issue was service and overcooked waygu beef which is somewhat of crime against food. We ordered two waygu beef entires, the most expensive items on the menu, and each had separate issues. The hot rock with the cook your own option actually was not hot enough to cook anything and then the waygu strip my boyfriend ordered arrived well done without any of the preparation or sides described in the menu. After drinks, the total bill for dinner and appetizers was close to $700. For the cost I think the restaurant should be ashamed of the food they put out never mind the fact that we could never find our waiter.
The reception area was so very organized and the 3 women were lost. Lots of people had to wait hour or so even with reservations. We told them that we would be at the bar which was 10 feer away from.the desk. We were never callled. We told them twice that we were at the bar. We finally ate there with a bunch of other people bartender and food was great. Get rid of those 3 divas. They were pretty but pretty useless
We had a reservation and had to wait about 20 minutes; food is great; a little crowded and loud for my taste.. I love Morimoto Maui!
Arrived at 730 for 730 reservation. Was told it would be a 15 min wait. At 8 checked back with hostess. She forgot about me. Told me 5 more minutes. She cancelled my opentable reservation. Was finally seated around 810. My rating on service is for the hostess. My actual server was excellent.
Unfortunately, they no longer offer the Lava chocolate ball which is the reason that we first became regulars(after seeing another table order it 2 years ago, it was the reason for us to bring:
-niece & spouse
We brought them here mostly because of this dessert and wouldn’t have otherwise. To use the “excuse” that because of Valentines Day, they were out of chocolate is so sloppy.
Secondly, it has been over a year and they still haven’t fixed their sidewalk in front of the restaurant.
Mr. Morimoto/Morimoto-san has become greedy and simply doesn’t maintain consideration for safety or consistency with their customers/menu.
The wine list is very limited, just 1 choice for chardonnay by the glass at $18 which seems exorbitant.
Bar tender completely ignored us for about 15 minutes. Server at table was great. Food was good but definitely not worth the price. Highlight was duck Caesar salad.
The food definitely was one of the best. Great atmosphere and ambience. The big downside was that on that particular evening the food took a very long time to get to the table. Despite this, the servers provided exceptional service.
One of the best meals I’ve had! Ordered 8 different items from the menu and everything was incredible
Good food as usual. Bar service was slower than normal. Entrees came out before apps which an inconvenience but the quality was good.
It's a nice restaurant but very big and the tables are very close together. We were out for late Valentines and were seated so close to the other two couples next to us that we felt as though they were a part of our dinner too - in fact one of the other people made a joke, where are we going next time? There are a lot of dishes prepared table side so we all got to have an extra show and see what the couples next to us were eating.
The food was good...but the only thing that really stood out to me was the chocolate sphere dessert. It was very dramatic - they light it up at your table and the chocolate melts and it was delicious.
All of the people working there were very nice and I could tell they wanted to provide good service.
When we first got there (early at 6) the service was very good, however shortly after when the restaurant got busy I don't think the server/kitchen was able to keep up. By the end of our dinner we waited 20 mins for our dessert - and I wasn't able to enjoy the dessert with coffee as my coffee didn't get to me until after we had finished our dessert.
I think that the restaurant is catering more to the tourist staying in the hotel and trying to get the most people in and out as possible. I probably wouldn't go back for dinner...maybe for drinks and apps at the bar.
Wonderful better than when it first opened
Very good service. Waitress was very sweet and professional. Food was above expectations. Would love to dine here again
Food and Service was on spot made us feel like we were somebody !!
Great food and service.
What an incredible Valentine's Day dinner experience! The ambiance, service, and food was nothing short of exceptional.
Nice view from lanai. Most seats outside are a little crowded-booth one side/chair on other, right next to other party. Not intimate when conversations are unavoidably overheard.
Food: one great salad one not so great. Buri bop was amazing and wonderful. Other dishes not so much. Various servers brought our food, so less personal. So—Very good but not great. Will go back for buri bop and ribs.
Amazing experience with the superb cuisine, service and sunset view. The only drawback for us was the high noise level. I understand many like the high energy noise level but we prefer a quieter more romantic sound level. May be a quieter room/area for those so inclined?
Thank you for an otherwise unmatched experience!!
I waited over an hour for my food but they gave me free food
Daniel did an amazing job & took good care of us. Outstanding hospitality!
Food was expensive and nothing special. This is like a glorified of PF Chang. I would not go there again.
Don’t try the roast duck which was fatty and nothing like Peking duck!
Boring place. Food is very mediocre. We would never come back.
Fantastic food and outstanding service! The Iron Chef did not disappoint.
Hands down our absolute favorite dinner
The noise level was not "energetic" but was obnoxiously loud. The music was too loud & not really fitting for an upscale dining experience. The food was amazing!
Food was excellent and the service was terrific.
Menu is varied and everything we tried wa amazing.
The server was great.
Ordered several small plates, they were all delivered within 5-10 minutes of ordering. Did not receive our drinks until mid way through meal. Felt very rushed. They had us in and out within 45 minutes. Servers were nice and food was good. We would have enjoyed having a couple drinks and our plates coursed out.
The food was delicious. A little price but to be expected in Waikiki. Waiter was very attentive. Visual pleasing to see the smoked old fashion made table side as well as the chocolate sphere caramelizing. Made up for the loud guy a few tables away.
Great service started with Hank at the bar.
Our server Jen was awesome. Helpful I choosing our dishes. The popcorn shrimp was my favorite. The others loved the duck.
We had an awesome experience.
It was my 2 year anniversary with my gf and I decided to take her there. the servers there were so polite and the service was fantastic. Defenitley one to remember.
It was great, a bit loud because there was a conference going on but not too bad. Food was amazing. Service seemed a bit rushed but we were exhausted so we didn’t mind too much.
