We watch the Iron Chef and have always been impressed with Morimoto's creative dishes. This experience surpassed our high expectations. Everything was fabulous!! Some of our favourite dishes were the spicy king crab, divers scallop ceviche, and tuna sashimi. And to top off a fabulous dinner, the white wine was chilled to perfection:)

I love the Iron Chef Show and going to Morimoto's restaurant was a fabulous treat! Yes the atmosphere is unique. Walk up to what you think are curtains of material to find they're solid plaster sculptures. Seating is comfortable on wide heavy chairs. Waiters a bit pretentious suggesting the most expensive appetizers first...but they were absolutely right every time! The... More

This is quite a large restaurant, with few hints that it has a Japanese orientation. We sat in a small area off to the side of the main dining area. We opted for the 7 course Omakase menu ($135), with sake pairings (an additional $75). This proved to be an excellent way of establishing the kitchen's credentials, and we had... More

Morimoto is a beautiful restaurant, even the entrance is stunning. Not to mention the bathrooms. The drinks were all very nice and the sushi was good, not amazing. What was amazing was the King Crab appetizer. My girlfriend and I ate a lot of good food during our week in NYC, but we still talk about that Crab.

Morimoto is so far my favourite Japanese restaurant in New York! You need to try the pork dumplings for entrée and the yellowtail on rice cooked at your table in a hot stone bowl!

This is the second time we have visited this restuarant, Both visits have been good experiences. Our choice was the tasting menu paired with wines. It is a very good way to sample the menu and would highly recommend.

love morimoto. Went for my first time and although we had reservations, we had to wait a bit longer than i wanted, but it was delicious and i forgot already about the wait. We tried the Omakase and just fell in love with the food. The Toro appetizer was delicious and the salad was inventive and yummy. The service staff... More

Enjoyed a fabulous dinner on a busy Saturday night. Had a fantastic server who was extremely knowledgable, friendly and knew how to inform and take care of our dining needs without excess bother. Two of us enjoyed the omakase tasting menu and the other ordered off the menu (also great to be able to do that if the entire table... More
