Great Asian restaurant in Napa

We are an older couple in our late 50s and wanted to experience the cooking prowess of an Iron Chef, so we made reservations for 9-ish. The server was excellent and knowledgeable about their offerings. Our plan was to order a flight of Saki and a series of appetizers. The food was good, as was the Saki What spoiled the... More

The blackened cod was delicious, the sushi was average. The service was friendly, but 2 of our entrees were never brought to us and the main was brought before our sushi. It was a little strange and confusing as a meal...

This was an absolute heavenly meal. We started off with Japanese scotch at the sake bar in the front of the restaurant. The restaurant has an excellent selection of scotches, sakes and wines (of course)! We ordered the omakase and each course just kept getting better. By the end, I really could not eat our final 2 courses - meat... More

Be sure to get the innovative, deliciously satisfying Omakase menu from this Napa gem. Having eaten at the French Laundry the night before, the bar was pretty high .... but Morimoto did not disappoint (and was half the price)! Sushi may be out of character for the region, but it's absolutely worth a reservation.

The food, while good, was not exceptional especially considering the cost. The service was adequate and when confronted with a pricing error upon receiving the bill, instead of correcting it we received a simple..."My bad" from the waiter who then turned and left. When I return to Napa, I won't return to Morimoto.

Came into Napa for lunch at Morimoto. Had one of the Morimoto Rogue beers - excellent. Had the edamame for an app - it's huge and very tasty! Hubby had spicy tuna and sashimi loved every bite. I had shrimp tempura, also excellent. Would highly recommend this restaurant - the atmosphere was inviting and enjoyable!

For exotic décor and an eclectic East/West menu of delights, visit the Japanese restaurant, Morimoto with outdoor seating overlooking the Napa River. The whitefish carpaccio and calamari salad were a delicious way to start the meal. Sticky ribs were tangy and abundant. Our waitress, Rosa, brought us a glass of champagne and a couple of chocolates with our receipt. We... More

Didn't expect to come all the way to Napa to eat such good Japanese. The food was fresh and elegant. Give this a go. Enjoyable food and cocktails
