Our party of 6 dined at Morimoto Waikiki tonight and although the restaurant was packed the service was magnificent. Our servers were charming, well informed, articulate and efficient. The Dim Sum appetizers were super and the Duck, Black Cod and Shrimp Pad Thai were superb - as well as the vegetarian dishes.

Chris the dining assistant was very helpful and attentive, he had only been there 5 weeks. Our waiter, D, seemed hurried and not very interested in helping us. He walked up and asked what we wanted to order. We told him we had never been there and needed a minute to look at the menu. He had a great smile but did not go out of his way to check on us at all. He never even stopped by after we got our meal to see if the food was delivered correctly. My husband got his coffee before the doughnuts came out and mine came as the check was delivered and after the dessert was consumed. There were times we wondered if he had left the restaurant all together. I would suggest promoting Chris to waiter! I did request a seat near the kitchen and we were not disappointed! Great view of the action. We would go back but I hope we have a better waiter next time.

The food at Panda Express is more tastier Went with a lot of expectations. Service and ambiance was great. food is mediocre ( that’s why people eat out !). Dishes were served out of sequence - we got our fried rice 15 mins before food came !

We were seated outside on the balcony that provided a nice view of the beach and sunset. The bench seating was comfy and even had pillows for the back while the chair was heavy and comfy as well. This restaurant is known for family style dishes (sharing of plates) that is what we did. It does make your decision tougher when it is only the two of us. 🥹 We first ordered the Hamachi Kama as a starter rather than a dinner plate to give us more time to decide what other plates we wanted. It was sooooi good … crispy skin from the grill but the hamachi was done to perfection … The next plates we ordered were: A5 surf and Turf sushi roll - presentation was nice when the use a torch to cook the wafting strip on the outside portion of the shrimp tempura roll. The flavor combination was good especially if you used the caramelized siracha mayo and the sauce wrapped in the butter lettuce wrap. But for a $42 roll it was quite pricey. Fried Rice - some reviewers thought it was bland. My self I did not think so … we thought it was just right since there is a lot going on. It was not greasy.. Took the remaining portion to go … ate the leftover the next day and the flavor was even better. Angry lobster - the use of the tho red curry was really good. I love red Thai curry and would not have thought to use this as the sauce over the lobster and lo mein Noodles. Dessert - we ordered two, chocolate sphere and donuts. The chocolate sphere was flambé. Nice show at your table side and unique dessert. Could still taste the lliquor as it was not fully burned off. Personally I would not order this again. The donuts were his version of malasadas. These were worth the price. When putting everything together, I felt the rating is more toward 4.7 or 4.8, hence the 5 star rating based on rounding.

Service was exceptional as always but food quality & temperature was so very disappointing. Miso and entrees were luke wam. Everything tasted like it had been prepared before our arrival and reheated. Hope it was a fluke, but not sure if we are game to give it another try.

The food was onolicious. We ordered the Spicy Tuna Crispy Rice and Dim Sum Sample appetizers and it was delicious. We also ordered the Pad Thai Noodles, Angry Lobster, 16 oz. Prime Rib and the House Fried Rice.....again, everything was broke da mouth (really good). The service was on point. Our waiter and the backwait help were both friendly and gave awesome recommendations on what to order (even though they both said everything was amazing to eat....lol). As far as what we ordered, they weren't lying. To end it all, we had the chocolate sphere for dessert which they set on fire which was really cool to see. Needless to say, that was melt in your mouth chocolate wasted. My wife had a wonderful Mothers Day dinner and we all enjoyed our dinner. We will definitely be back. Oh, not to forget......both the male and female managers came around to take the time to see how our experience was which was a pleasant bonus. Everyone was friendly and genuine. I definitely recommend going.

I explicitly told them it was my wife’s birthday and they didn’t recognize it at all. I understand it’s Mother’s Day, but it was also my wife’s b-day. We wanted an outdoor table and they refused to give it to us and lied and said another party asked for it, then they finally split the 2 tables and sit 2 different parties. Service in general was super poor. Took forever to meet server, took forever to ask for anything like drinks, a new hot stone. Our first order of duck was fabulous. We ordered another one and it was super chewy. The server didn’t even care. They told me over the phone they would prepare the chocolate sphere for my wife’s birthday. Got nothing and they gave us a small scoop of ice cream instead. On to the food. It’s actually really good. I would be back just for the food with super low expectations for service.

No one told us the food will come as it is available??? I guess that meant our separate dishes came whenever the kitchen finished cooking it. It would have been nice to be told that when we sat because it’s awkward to have a wonderfully prepared surf and turf waiting to be eaten because the rest of the food didn’t come around the same time. Mines came last, it was the fried whole fish and it took at least 10 mins after my husband’s and son’s plates came. Dessert took almost 20 mins to get to us. It was the chocolate sphere and it was not even holding its shape at the bottom when they brought it to the table. Honestly the couple things that saved my view of this restaurant is the awesome wait staff and the taste of the food. The staff did apologize and took care of this in the end. We know it was super busy but it little stuff like letting us know how or when food will come out makes a big deal.

Mains were tasty but overpriced as expected. Restaurant is situated in a prime area of Waikiki with beachfront view. Great ambiance, so this compensates for the food pricing. Sorbet was served in a cardboard container, solid and frozen. Difficult to eat. Had to scrape surface for at least 30secs to even get a fraction of a teaspoon to eat.
