    Morimoto Waikiki was delicious. This was our first time and had no expectations other than we were to taste various Asian dishes. All of our dishes were very tasty and well seasoned. Our staff was very attentive and we did not have to request anything. The noise level is very high so it’s not a place for a quiet, intimate dinner. Lively and great tasting food- Morimoto Waikiki. We will return in the future.

    Very modern design, professional yet chill staff. Apps were sticky ribs (OMG!!!! Insanely amazing!!) and dim sum dumpling sampler (excellent, but only had 4, very small dumplings, for $15… at least 6 would be worth the price in my opinion). While they were preparing my husband’s entree at our table….the waiter stated he actually prepared that same dish for President Obama in that same room last Father’s Day amongst other high profile individuals. It gives off a vibe of “hey this is where ‘cool kids’ go lol. Seriously, truly a great experience, especially when they opened the walls (glass sliding doors) of the room we were in overlooking Waikiki Beach. Aloha!! to THE Chef Morimoto your food is incredible!

    Essentially no Vegan options. The vegan options available is boiled vegetables, which is not worth going to such a fancy place. Wish there were more fancy vegan options instead of just non-vegetarian options!

    Great food, just be aware that some of the seafood—despite being next to the ocean—is shipped in. The spare ribs were amazing. Atmosphere is not fancy, but is elevated. This would be fantastic for 30% lower cost. At its current prices it’s nothing special, but is a nice dining experience.

    Thought it was way overpriced for what we got. There was a party of 6, 2 rows away from us, that used the F-bomb every other word. They were loud and no one at the restaurant said anything to them until I mentioned to our waitress how much they like the f-word. I think she asked them to quiet down. That worked for a while and then they continued dominating the restaurant with their crude conversation. This ruined our whole experience. The donuts were not fresh or hot. I was surprised that a restaurant like this would allow such poor behavior from their customers. If I had been with my children, we would have left.

    We came here to celebrate our anniversary! It was a really interactive experience and I highly recommend the A5 Wagyu & A5 Wagyu sushi roll! We ate family style so we could try many different dishes and our server perfectly coursed everything out! He was so knowledgeable and gave us great tips on the menu! The entire restaurant really worked together well and we enjoyed watching our food being prepared! Each dish was beautifully plated, the table service was excellent and the flaming chocolate sphere for dessert was the perfect way to end the meal! They even added a special message to commemorate our celebration! Loved the care & attention to detail! Highly recommend!!

    One appetizer came out after main dishes, main dishes were brought out at way different times and one one was brought out after we were almost finished, getting a refill on the iced tea took forever. The desert was good but that was about it. Super loud and service was so so, won’t be back or recommended.

    The staff was amazing. Everyone was so attentive. No one was like this is not my job. If they saw a need it was met. They all checked on us but didnt hover. Explained the menu very well. I have a shellfish allergy and they took that very seriously. Everything was amazing.

    Did really enjoy a great meal with my wife. Noise level was quite high, but it was packed and the music was really just in the background- so just the other customers. Excusable and has nothing to do with the great quality of the meal - outstanding!

    The good: beautiful dining area, nicely furnished. Well staffed with servers, Buser’s, hostesses results in excellent service. The dim sum appetizer is excellent as was the duck. The Pad Thai pasty and overly sweet. High prices reflect the downtown Waikiki premium location. A little noisy but not obnoxious. Resort casual is a little broad. Be prepared for swim trunks and T-shirt’s in a nicely done restaurant.
