The place is still pretentious, but it no longer deserves it. The service was poor--we had to wait past our reservation time (understandable), but then it was about 15 minutes until anyone came to our table to greet us or take a drink order. Only...More

Atmosphere (unique artistic displays of "petrified" vines, stunning floor-to-ceiling windows expose the colorful tapestries of rolling hills, elegant high ceilings and open floor plan, fully exposed kitchen: unlike any other) is excellent, and yet not over the top.

I witnessed from the front a worker preparing desserts with their bare hands. While they were doing this, they were cleaning crumbs off the counter, with their bare hands. After that, they proceeded to clean their hands on their apron and returning to prepare desserts...More

So delicious! We had carpaccio, double order because it was so good! And then pork chop (split for two was perfect). Great meal and amazing service in a beautiful location in Napa. Treat yourself and go!

Very good and generous potions. Shrimp tempura to die for. Bustling atmosphere and extremely loud. Chicken is amazing. Surf and turf was minimal and a bit overdone. Ahi tuna tacos are delicious. Our server Chrystal was fantastic.

If you enjoy quality, service, ambiance and an awesome array of food, wine and sprits, then just make reservations and visit this establishment. We’ve been going to Morimoto in Napa for several years and always have had a consistent and quality experience.
