We did the omakase. I asked for the menu and they did give me one, but it did nothing to explain the intricacies of what we actually ate. Toro Tartare (this version smaller than if you order it on its own) Kanpachi carpaccio Bagna cauda (heated olive oil with anchovy paste at the bottom, served with vegetables, some which are... More

The sushi was spectacular and Morimoto is open later than other restaurants in the area which saved us after an extended nap the first afternoon.

My best friend and I came here with a "we are going to break the bank tonight!" mentality, and we sure did. Our waiter was really helpful when my friend couldn't remember the name of a dish she had tried before (if was a beef flatbread wrapped in rice paper to facilitate eating) that was amazing and the best part...

My husband and I walked in off the street from a day-long trip of wine tours and tastings. No problem said the hostess. I was dressed a little casual and asked if I was dressed of and she said yes. We sat at the sushi bar and ordered several items, even some fish we never heard of (we like to... More

I do enjoy a good sushi and this place definitely has the right thing to offer if you do too. It gets a little pricey but at least the quality of food is worth it. Great atmosphere but tends to attract large parties so don't plan on to Quiet Of a meal.

I was always fascinated by chef Morimoto way of preparing food. He's not only a chef, but also an artist. The twist and presentation in this restaurant is quite astonishing. Domo arigato Morimoto sun

We popped in to Morimoto without a reservation after my daughter's wedding last February. The Staff made a nice space for us outside and was very lovely to us. We had cocktails and a few sushi rolls and appetizers. The recommended cucumber martini (don't remember the name) was a HUGE hit. Very nice experience.

We ate here twice. The first night we got in very late; and stayed at the Napa River Inn; a few hundred yards away. We were very happy to find the restaurant open; and we had Sashimi, which was very creative, and tasty. We went back here on another day during our stay, and elected the degustation menu. For us...

Iron Chef Morimoto's Napa restaurant is definitely worth a visit while you're in the area. The decor was exceptionally elegant & creative which was very welcoming. I loved the great selection of appetizers which made for easy sharing. The best item for a seafood lover was the rock shrimp tempura, followed closely by the seared octopus. My meat lovers enjoyed...
