I called ahead to advise that my wife and I were travelling from Canada to New York for our Anniversary. When we arrived, we were seated immediately adjacent to a wall, there was a work closet with an open door behind my wife and the main corridor where patrons passed was directly by behind me. High end restaurant and somehow... More

We ate at Morimoto's at my sister's request. She's a huge sushi and seafood lover and loved every part of her meal. Since this was a once in a lifetime dining experience she ordered the Chef's Choice 9 Course meal and enjoyed every bite! The staff was very nice to her and explained not only what she was eating, but... More

Morimoto consistently delivers great food. Always a pleasure and positive experience to dine here. For lunch we had the sushi combo which was beautifully presented with great side dishes. The fish was superb and original - this is not your average sushi combo. The fish included a local clam, swordfish, and wonderful tuna. The side dishes included delightful pickled green... More

I ate at the bar even though I had reservations for the main floor since I came too early. The bar offers the full menu. Every dish that came out of this place was phenomenal!! My friend ordered the foie gras oysters which was super good!! It had the unique blend of oysters, uni and foie gras. Too bad you... More

We had reservations for a party of 12. The host seated us, extending the seats for the women in our party. We were seated promptly for our 1p.m. seating and greeted by a very welcoming and knowledgable server. The dining room was beautiful as well as the restrooms but with a very comfortable feel. The food as expected was perfectly... More

After a very good day in Manhattan, my wife and I had rather wisely, I think, planned to dine lightly at Morimoto. We had been here once before, for a lunch where we greatly admired the bento boxes and sushi--and so we made our reservation and showed up right on time. The place is rather large and able to accommodate... More

Had a great dinner at Morimoto. This was my third time at this restaurant and have always enjoyed the quality of the sushi. The service was a little off the night we ate there - dishes arrived that were not what we ordered. However, the management took care of those items and it gave us some things to try that... More

Stopped by Morimoto for an early dinner by myself and can't complain they treated me very well I had some delicious sushis, the freshest fish you could have. Want to come back with more time.

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
