Visited Morimoto for lunch during restaurant week. Picked the sashimi bento. The sashimi was excellent, but too few pieces. I was avoiding rice, so the box left me craving more food. The sashimi did come accompanied with salad and rice. The dessert, a strawberry shortbread inspired something was amaaazzzingggg!

Great food, service was super nice. We had a reservation and they sat us by the front door in the dead of winter- we asked to moved and they did right away to a much nicer table. The bathrooms are awesome. Our server was great. I don't remember what I ate but I know I wasn't complaining!

My husband and I came here for dinner this past Friday. We had a reservation but elected sit at the sushi bar in order to enjoy the show. The restaurant is impossibly cool and has a fantastic vibe. The space is visually stunning with sleek glass partitions, white accents, a modern staircase completed with a glittering wall of glass bottles.... More

(Rated very good because the food was excellent, but I was not wowed by this place altogether, would give a 3.5) Booked Morimoto through concierge at The Ritz Central Park after asking for authentic Japanese, and it definitely was, but something was a bit off. Not sure if it was seating or constant red light at our table; Offered to... More

We've been to Morimoto several times and it is always a pleasure being there. We really love the food, the hip ambiance, the fresh and innovative food, and do not forget to go to the bathroom: it's really special!

I took my wife here in December as part of a surprise weekend in Manhattan, hitting all of her favorite Food Network chef's restaurants across the city. When we arrived we were offered a table, but I asked if we could sit at the sushi bar so my wife could watch the kitchen work. We both went with the Omakase... More

Okay, so it is incredibly pricey; however, you get what you pay for. The service was amazing, and I could have eaten 10 of the Toro Tartares! The seasonal sashimi was good and the cocktails were fantastic. The setting was incredible and very NY! This was my favorite restaurant of a week-long trip!
