did the omakase menu. Sushi rice was nowhere near Jiro-esque. Save your omakase money for Kusakabe. However, the surf and turf and turf was crazy good. Highly recommended.

Great food but quite pricey (as expected in this area). We went early and it was a Monday night but I can see that on a busy evening it would be very loud. When my snapper arrived it wasn't cooked thoroughly so they took it back to replace it. I waited an unacceptable time to get my replacement meal but... More

We went to Morimoto on New Years Eve for a nice romantic dinner of good food and conversation. We were sadly disappointed. We had a reservation for 8:40pm but we're not seated until 9:35. I'm from LA and it's pretty much unheard of to wait an hour when you already had a reservation. We were not the only ones complaining... More

There should be other choices for 'noise level'.. in addition to 'would you recommend to a friend.' First of all would have to say it's very popular and the food is pretty good.. not 'great'.. but much better than most. But on a busy Saturday be prepared to be shouting at your dinner companions for pretty much the entire meal.... More

When I told one of the couples where we were going for dinner, they were ecstatic. Fantastic sushi, pork chops were amazing, as were all of our dishes. The room is beautiful with large windows looking out to the river. Definitely coming back.

The Morimoto chain is well known for excellent and inventive dishes; the Napa location is no exception. Indeed, we have been there before but never on a holiday weekend. Big mistake! Hard walls, packed rooms, and thumping background music combined to make conversation below a shout impossible. In addition, the first room that is encountered, en route to the dining... More

We're in Napa. We know we are going to be shelling out some money. The food is very good. The service, attentive (if not too much - one too many, "Everything still okay?"s). But, maybe because we had set our expectations too high, we were disappointed. They will tell you how good everything is before you order. And, you will... More

Regardless of what number restaurant this comes out on your search, if you're looking for fabulous sushi in an exquisite environment, this is your place. It's stunning visually, and was full of beautiful people on the night that I went. I had sushi a few times during my Bay Area swing, and this was by far and away the best.... More
