My husband is not a foodie. He ordered the mango chutney chicken with rice and loved it. I ordered the bento box and it was amazing! It give you a little taste of many of the menu items. The price was fair and the food fresh. We had to wait a little before we were seated but it was worth... More

This restaurant within the compound and overlooking the Morikami Japanese Garden, is mostly non-vegetarian but there is one mighty good vegan / vegetarian dish: Asian Eggplant. One other that was very well done was the Vegetable Gyoza (dumpling). Do take into account that the restaurant is only for visitors of the garden (no walk-ins) and that lunch time during season...

Honestly, the Morikami could get away with having an okay to decent restaurant since the grounds are so beautiful. However, they have really complemented the whole Japanese feel by having this great little cafe.

Very reasonably price Japanese cafe. I had salmon sushi that was very fresh, my friend had chicken curry that was quite tasty. In addition the surrounding is very soothing if you sit outside.

The menu has a good selection, the food is fresh and delicious. I had the grouper with lemon sauce and the vegetables accompanying dish were delicious as well. Servers and staff very friendly. They do close early, so be sure to go to cafe early as many people arrived at closing which was about 3 pm and were told service... More

The restaurant overlooks the peaceful Morikami Bonsai Garden. Love the menu. Each dish is fresh & flavorful. Always look forward to this well kept secret of a great "Foodie" restaurant. Wish that it was open for dinner.

There was a "frequent flyer" in line ahead of us and he suggested the bento box. What a great choice, I was not disappointed. It was sooo good!

If you are going to the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens, then you must eat at the Cornell Café. The food is delicious and you have a view of the gardens. They are only open for lunch. I would go back, but you have to pay admission to the gardens to eat at the restaurant.
