“Food is great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

If you are going to the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens, then you must eat at the Cornell Café. The food is delicious and you have a view of the gardens. They are only open for lunch. I would go back, but you have to pay admission to the gardens to eat at the restaurant.

“Awesome food and gorgeous views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

I have a membership at Morikami, and I always make it a point to have lunch here whenever I visit. The food is incredible, and when I brought some of my last entree home (I ordered the beef bowl) and gave it to my husband, he couldn't believe this meal was from a museum restaurant! He said it was some of the best Asian food he has ever eaten. I just wish they were open for dinner!

“All round terrific experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

$90 gets you an annual membership for two. Grounds are awe inspiring and extremely well kept. The restaurant is top notch. Excellent sushi and everything else on the menu as well. An all round terrific experience.

“The Morikami Cornell Cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

The Cornell Café is inside the Morikami Japanese Gardens. I believe the Food Network listed it as one of the top three museum dining experiences in the country. The open-air cafe overlooks the gardens. Nice, varied menu. The only downside is that you go thru the museum and garden entrance before you can get to the café. So you’re faced with an entry fee. However, the gardens are a real treat so make it a combo visit. A quiet setting with great food and service.
