“First time - loved the sushi!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

My first time trying PROPER sushi - it was lovely. The restaurant was very chic, and the prices matched - so be aware that the bill will be fairly high. But would highly recommend and would definitely go back again!

“Lychee Martini”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

The Lychee Martini is wonderful. We went for lunch and had the bento boxes. The food was very good & the decor is fun.

“I Wouldn't Go Back”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

What a shame this restaurant in the Morimoto chain exists! We made a special effort to go to Morimoto's on my 30th birthday in NYC as we enjoyed Morimoto's in Hawaii so much. However the NYC restaurant does not live up to the standards of the one in Hawaii. The staff were pretentious to the point of asking for my coat point seemed like a chore, if I hadn't caught it, it would have ended up on the floor. Our waitress was barely around and we had an atrocious wait for drinks service. The food was certainly below par and both our meals were nearly flavourless. The best part of our experience was the couple who were sat next to us, who we got talking to about the attitude of the server. The decor of the restaurant is very nice.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

Morimoto is a very trendy place with absolutely amazing Japanese food. I recommend the tofu and all sushi. Probably one of the best Japanese restaurants in NYC.
