They had a great raw bar set up for our business event (which they constantly and happily refilled. Also a hot buffet bar and they passed around heavy hors d'œuvres. The staff was excellent and was able to bring out additional seating while we were there for those of us who needed to sit.The quality of the food was very... More

Arriving at 10 pm one still felt the place has a fun vibe and considerate service. My dining companion and I were able to talk amiably, no shouting, sitting at the sushi bar. The waiter explained the menu which we did not need but felt was appropriate since some people are intimidated by sushi. The food was delicious, the wine... More

This is the type of place you would plan the day around...be prepared to spend some $$$$, be adventurous, wear some nice clothes, if you want a quiet intimate dinner reserve earlier in the evening...we went on a Saturday at 6:30 and found it pretty quiet and relaxing. The server was outstanding and timed out our courses with attentiveness and... More

My husband and I went to Morimoto for our second anniversary,and had such a great time that we went back for our fifth. We were not disappointed. Eating at Morimoto is a pleasure, the entire experience, from the hostess station to the waitstaff to the way the busboys clear your table is designed to be comfortable and lovely. Not to... More

An experience to have: dinner at the sushi bar, with the Omakase tasting menu and a very good Californian Soleil Chardonnay. Food excellent. Every dish was well presented. I particularly liked the toro tartare and the surf&turf waggu filet with lobster in garam masala. Service professional and efficient. As for the atmosphere, maybe because it was Saturday (July 5) night,... More

We went for lunch today and had a delicious bento box and dessert for $25. Black Cod, salad, miso soup, sushi (was a bit small), and 3 pieces of a tuna roll, tempura with a sauce (tasted like it could have blue cheese in it), The black cod was cooked perfectly. Surprisingly the sushi was what I liked the least.The... More

Have been here multiple times and loved every moment of it! The crispy shrimp as a started is the best, the sushi is also incredibly fresh. This is pretty expensive but you get what you pay for!

This past trip to NYC was specifically designed around food. I went to other NYC restaurants, unfortunately I found Morimoto to be just OK. I asked for the sushi selection at lunch and although the plating and execution of the sushi was flawless, the fish was not the freshest. I live in the pacific coast in Costa Rica and when... More

It was recommended by friends. We started with a cocktail which was to die for. It's what you expect when you know your going to pay, brilliant, very different. Appetiser and mains were great, presentation, taste and ingredients. Desert was to die for, honestly. One thing is annoying. We sat upstairs and as the interior is very modern (glass, concrete,...
