Great food - great service! A must in NYC

I was here with my wife and 6 months old baby. Waiters were extremely nice at accommodating us in a quiet corner. Food was amazing as they say. Will definitely come back!

Have always been a fan and decided this place was a must visit if I came to New York. So glad I included it on my to do list. We walked in as it opened and there was already a line. I was skeptical that we would get in, but as luck would have it, we did.... So glad the... More

The hubby and I went there for my birthday lunch today and it was my second time dining at Morimoto. This is one of my favorite places in NYC and I'd come back again in a second. We started with the Tempura rock shrimp. The presentation is beautiful. Rock shrimp tempura in two different types of sauces with a dipping... More

So before going to the doctor I just wanted simple information on what ingredients were used. SIMPLE right? Well its Friday now, I have already called Morimoto restaurant 4 times now and... More

The food was amazing and the drinks killer. The wait staff was fast, attentive and helpful. Of course you need to eat a pizza afterwards because the portions are small for the cost but hell it is a fine dining experience. One down side was we were really looking for sushi and though they did this there was not really... More

Impeccable service. Beautiful, trendy decor that does an excellent job of isolating the noise; no need to shout over the music and hoi polloi. We ordered the Omakase (tasting menu). Everything very good. Provided special dishes that were dairy free for me. Great for special occasions too.

When we found out that we were going to be in NYC in February, one of the first things we did was book a table at Morimoto's. This was our second visit to this establishment. The sushi options are plentiful and varied. They have a seasonal menu with different items that are available fresh. We had the opportunity to try... More
