    Quite noisy but the food made up for that. Omakase is an experience having both sushi station and kitchen presenting amazing dishes. Our server, Michael was outstanding !! Professional, knowledgeable and friendly.

    I was at Morimoto on 2/17 and 2/21. The food was soooo good that I came back with my father. It was his first time and he said that the sushi was the best he’s ever had! Hanna was our server both times and was superb!

    I have been to Morimoto numerous times, and the food is always prepared to the highest standard. Unfortunately, this is the first time that I have experienced service that was a little slow. The pacing seemed off between our courses and we waited a little longer than usual for the sushi rolls.

    This was a birthday present for my son who loved it. We approached it as an event and not just dinner and everything was excellent. For example, we are sushi eaters but he has not had really high end fish so this was a first taste of the what sushi could be. I hope I did not spoil him to the 'normal sushi' that we get. Additionally, the staff was great and explained everything to us so we could enjoy it even more.
