“Absolutely Horrible Restaurant”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

The food is highly overrated and severely overpriced. The service was very rude and extremely slow. Each entree was delivered 30 minutes apart with almost no food on the plate. If you are fasting and like throwing money away, then this is the place for you. The desert looked like it came straight from a See's candy box at more than double the price. See's candy is far better as well too. For an outstanding meal and dining experience, go to Redd.

“Not Traditional!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

The staff was great at explaining what everything was. The Wagyu Beef Carpaccio was great. The Pork Gyoza was definitely different but good. And the chilled Udon was delicious! My husband loved his Sea Urchin Carbonara. The ambience was really nice . The only negative was the hostess who acted like we were an annoyance since we were among the first to arrive .

“Great dinner! Service lacking.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

We just dined at Morimoto Napa, having dined at some of his other restaurants we knew what to expect (fantastic foods, high quality fish), and we weren't disappointed with the foods. The service was a bit lacking though and at times our server completely disappeared. While it was a bit annoying, we were with friends so it didn't ruin our evening.
Don't forget to get the donuts for dessert! Yum.

“Loud Omakase”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Our second visit to Morimotos in Napa and the second time for Omakase. Although not as memorable as my first visit still a great place for dinner. The restaurant is extremely loud so we were lucky to get an outside table during nice weather. Ordered the Omakase (chef's choice) which served tastings of a variety of dishes. Sushi was outstanding, main course was a surf and turf and just okay. Do come hungry as the Omakase tasting is a significant amount of food. Service was top notch as well.
