We have always wanted to try a Morimoto restaurant--we have been fans for a long time. So this was a special treat and we enjoyed all of the courses. They were technically perfect and very tasty.

We went last night for hubby's birthday. We had cocktails out on the deck before our dinner reservation. I had a lemongrass moscow mule, it was yummy tho not very strong. We were seated on the deck as well. We ordered the Morimoto tasting menu, it was $140 for 7 courses. It was really fun and different. My hubby said... More

We had dinner at Morimoto this evening and were treated with exceptional service. The food was amazing and there was a great atmosphere. The best part was the friendly wait staff. We had Ryan as our server and were pleased with his attentiveness and kindness. I would highly recommend Morimoto to anyone.

Great food. Great atmosphere. It also over looks the Ala Moana marina. I recommend it! Also, check out the Modern Hotel lobby next door. Very cool surfboard decorations.

Loved the sushi and the house green salad. The drinks were top notch and prices surprisingly reasonable! Would recommend to anyone that loves sushi but caution that seating is a bit crowded and it can get loud.

I will start this review by saying we thought we were going to an Omakase style restaurant for sushi and sashimi - but to be fair i guess omakase is chef's choice and if part of what is on the menu is surf & turf then that is fair game. We asked to be seated at the sushi bar expected... More

This place hit the mark on all fronts. Awesome décor...what I wouldn't give to have a glass dining room table filled with sea water and crustaceans! The gorgeous chairs were also super comfortable... not something you may consider when picking a restaurant, but who wants to sit on a hard wooden chair for over an hour when you're trying to...
