This was our first visit. We had a fantastic time. Our server was wonderful. She had great suggestions, and my husband can be a little particular. We both loved the food. Everything we tried from the appetizers to dessert were amazing.

The quality of food is unsurpassed. But the service has fallen off a little bit. The servers don't seem to know or understand the menu well enough to recommend the best experience.

We celebrated a special occasion and Blair came through for us! Thank you so much Blair: the seating and birthday dessert after dinner were perfect! The Chef’s seasonal sushi was outstanding: the cuts of fish and perfect sushi rice were aligned in delightful harmony. Equally delicious were the tempura vegetable appetizers, duck fried rice, and the Chef sushi combination. The decor is visually stimulating yet relaxing, as sea themes and natural elements abound. We will be back!

Morimoto is a wonderful restaurant with great food. The only drawback is that it is VERY noisy.

Great food, staff and ambiance. There’s a cozy bar seating above with a nice view over the restaurant. The only thing that would make it even better was if morimoto was there himself!

The food and service is always the best. The Wagu Dumplings and Duck, duck, duck were a nice surprise on the menu.

If you have problems picking something ask your server, they always have great recommendations

The food was very good. The service was excellent with honest waitstaff providing opinions on dishes. We went because we had a very generous gift card. However, I am not sure we would return. Nothing against the place. It was a great experience. However, the prices were very high. We barely drank at all, yet spent $300+ including tax and tip. A lot of the price is for the ambiance. Again, it was fantastic. Just very high priced.
