Japanese
The highest expression of Japanese cuisine, using ingredients with vibrant and exquisite presentation mulched by the famous Shoos Studio into the legendary Camino Real Polanco; Morimoto's design encompasses Mexico City lifestyle of the city in conjunction with the Japanese tradition. The main dome and a large window offer a perfect view of the sky. The wooden floor extends to the outside; the lamps represent elegance and fragility of Japanese ceramics. The furniture and walls of glass result in an atmosphere of comfort during the day and night.

Muy caro para lo malo del servicio. El lugar parece cafetería, nada acogedor, el servicio malo, pocos meseros y distraídos, el baño huele a cigarro, no tienen la carta de antes. El monto de la cuenta no correspondió para nada con la comida, el servicio y el lugar.

The seasoning at this MoriMoto location seemed to be lacking, esp when compared to the way the steaks were seasoned at their Maui location. My wagyu ribeye was also overcooked-even though I had ordered it medium rare, it was was more like medium to medium-well, which made the steak tough and chewier than a regular ribeye, since a regular ribeye has more fat marbled through to begin with. For a $100 steak, I honestly expected better (and is why I gave 3 stars for food score, even though other items were 5 star quality). Drinks were outstanding and the service was great too, as was their chocolate dessert, which came out in flames! So maybe the lesson is avoid the wagyu steaks at the Vegas location (in Maui the steaks were a melt in your mouth best ever seasoned steak & is what I was hoping to experience again here too)!

Comimos el Omakase y fue verdaderamnete una experiencia. La sopa de hongos ha sido de las mejores que he comido.
Quien no coma picante en lo absoluto avise al mesero para que el chef lo considere

They are not in their regular place now and the service is not the same. Also the menu is reduced and the experience is very different.

Located inside the Camino Real Hotel premises, and during the COVID pandemic, they are temporarily serving food on the 3rd floor. Great food with a traditional Mexican kindness.

Thought I had a reservation for this location but my app thought I was in MX and made one there! Fortunately the gentleman who greeted us was able and happy to accommodate us. We sat on the rivers walkway and I was scared to be too cold but we weren’t! Their heat lamps work very well. It would’ve been nice to be more inside for the ambience. However, I understand with social distancing & an unexpected appearance that may not have been doable at the time.

Food & service were great! Everyone seemed happy to be there and it made for a pleasant experience.

Servicio: Se equivocaron varias veces en los platillos, nos mandaban otros y estaban poco atentos.

Comida: El pescado no se sentía fresco, sino refrigerado de varios días. Los platillos calientes (pulpo y bacalao) estaban bien cocinados, en su punto, pero hiper-dulces, tal vez es el estilo del chef a nosotros no nos gustaron, demasiado dulces.

Los ostiones sabían muy bien.

Fuimos a celebrar y decidimos pagar un tanto extra, pagamos, sin alcohol 2,800 pesos, creo que nunca había pagado una cena así de cara. Por ello es que no lo recomendamos, la relación precio-calidad es muy baja. Es como una trampa para turistas.

Si te gusta lo dulce si te lo recomiendo sino hay otros japoneses que te gastas la mitad o menos y son infinitamente mejores.

The restaurant and food were perfect. Not sure what's going on with the staff. They were hovering and rushing us at first then ignored us. One waiter bumped my partner in the head going by and didn't even say anything. No second drink or desserts were offered. We were annoyed by then anyway but it does not diminish the beautiful restaurant and delicious food.

El lugar bien ambientado, con un nivel de ruido muy bajo, atención excelente siempre están al pendiente de ti ya sea para servirte más sake, o quitar platos.

El menú tiene muy buena variedad viene en español e inglés de manera intercalada lo cual al inicio desorienta un poco.

La calidad de los alimentos EXCELENTE, desde entradas, platos fuertes y postre toda la comida fue deliciosa, tenía buena temperatura y tiempos rápidos entre ordenar y recibir tu platillo.

Sin duda alguna regresare en un futuro a disfrutar más de los platillos que tienen para ofrecer.

En cuanto a costo es un poco elevado pero para la calidad de alimentos y atención es adecuado, para 2 personas con entradas, plato fuerte, postre, y café serán aproxadamente $3,500 pesos (vale cada centavo la comida).

TL:DR, don't buy the expensive meats, go straight for the sushi

The place is very nice, nice accommodations, service is amazing too, however, we had the kobe new york beef, slices were extremely thin, couldn't even notice it was kobe beef, the flavor was poor and the meat itself felt old.

Aside from the kobe, we had the ramen and chiharashi, chiharashi was one of the best dishes I've had on an asian restaurant, a must try if you go.
