Food was excellent but we will not go back. We were first seating at 5:00pm and our food order wasn't taken for 36 minutes. All of our food came out at random times with my entree coming 10 minutes later than others at our table. Appetizers were brought out after our entrées. We were told they had no control over timing as food came from "different kitchens". I honestly don't understand that with a restaurant of this caliber. We enjoyed our food but the portions were way too small and were way overpriced.

My friends and I were disappointed at the quality of food and presentation for this Morimoto restaurant. We chose the $140 Omakase dinner. We started out excellently with the beef carpaccio with truffle shavings and the tuna tartare. These two were absolutely delicious and presentation was Morimoto-esque. The third course of a lobster bisque cioppini was nicely presented and tasted pretty good. Then came the 4th course which was a plate of 7 nigiri sushi - the rice was terrible, cold, clumpy, hardly seasoned; the fish was dry, not of good quality - as if it was in the refrigerated deli section of your local supermarket. The fifth and last dish was unacceptable. It was surf and turf lobster and steak. This definitely did not look Japanese and no where close to Morimoto's style. The small piece of steak was very well done (they never asked us how we wanted it done) , I could not identify the sauce on the bottom because it was crusted on to the plate, the half lobster tail was baked dry and super salty with the chili salt that covered it, and the two wilted pieces of Chinese broccoli were also very salty. The presentation was haphazard, and one of us did not get any oyster mushrooms on the plate like the others did ; inconsistent. It looked like what MGM would serve at a big banquet dinner where food would be less than sub-par when it's served for 1000 people all at once. This could not be something that Morimoto would have put on his menu.

Our waitress was super nice and was very understanding. She called out her general manager who was also apologetic and modified the price. I hope that Morimoto gets word of this so that he can fix this poor quality and prevent any further tarnishing of his name.

Appetizer delivery was poor, coming out in pieces, including one that came out after the entrees were delivered. The sushi did not appear to be made to order—-some of the rice was a bit hard on the edges, and none of it was warm as you have in high end sushi restaurants. Some of the sushi pieces were great, such as the toro, but others were average. At the price and reputation it should have been much better. If you want great Japanese in Vegas there are better choices.

OMG!! Probably the best meal I've had in my life!! Lisa was AMAZING!! Stick Rib appetizer set the tone. The Wagyu Filete Mignon was to die for. I had Lisa's suggestion of the Pork Chops. WOW, WOW, WOW!! NOTHING BAD TO SAY!!

Please bring a lot of cash or your credit card. It is pricey, but WORTH EVERY CENT!!!

Celebrated my birthday I decided to dine here. I found the shashimi were very fresh but at the same time overpriced. My appetizer or oysters with sea urchin and seared froi gras were also expensive.
I didn’t taste anything that was screaming Morimoto. The martini was mediocre and pricy as well. Overall I’d give it a 3 but for the price it would be $$$$

The food and atmosphere were amazing! Eddie made great recommendations for dining options, especially the Cheesecake dessert. The sushi was delicious, the highlight of the meal was Ishi Yaki Chashu Bop, pork and tableside made rice dish, it was to die for. We shall return!

One of my favorite Japanese restaurants on the strip you got to do the sizzling yellowtail that they prepare tableside. The pork belly salad is so bomb. Wasn’t crazy about their Japanese mule but overall it’s a great spot and a perfect date spot.

We came around 5pm. Waited 5 minutes with reservations. Large classy restaurant. Nice modern decor. Our waitress was nice but seems quiet and shy. Ordered 3 appetizers and they were very good. The oysters uni foie gras was out of this world delicious. Ordered another of it. For the main, we shared a sushi combo. That was just ok. Not good. Should’ve just ordered something off their main entree list. It was very pricey that we chose not to order anything else. Altogether we paid $220 with tip for 4 appetizers and a sushi combo. Not worth it. Only thing worth to try are the appetizers. That’s it.

I booked this reservation because a friend of mine was getting married in Las Vegas, and really wanted to dine at Morimoto while we were in town. I told her I would take care of the reservation and the details, and the whole experience was effortless and very rewarding. The bride-to be was very happy, and we all had a great time. The staff was extremely helpful and knew the menu and wine list very well. The food was excellent, and I really appreciated the presentation as well as the taste. I would definitely recommend the restaurant to friends who are planning a trip to Las Vegas, and I'm looking forward to trying out more of the menu on my next visit.

The food was honestly subpar. Worse sushi I’ve had in years. Rice had no flavor and was hard and tasted a bit old. The fish wasn’t fresh and slightly dry. I couldn’t eat it anymore, had it removed from the table. Surf and turf was okay but the steak want memorable. The thick sauce was gross. Morimotos sashimi was also old tasting fish and gave me a bit of nausea in the end. The place had good reviews on Yelp but in reality, it’s more of a 3/5 stars.

Our dinner at Morimoto was one of the highlights of our Las Vegas vacation. It was the best meal we had, and it was a lot more affordable than we had anticipated for four people (2 adults and 2 children).
