I've watched Iron Chef Morimoto on TV in Japan and the US for over a decade and I've enjoyed a meal at his great restaurant in Hell's Kitchen, but this was our first visit to his place in Napa. The restaurant is big and bustling, right in the heart of the gentrified riverside section of town. The server-to-patron ration is... More

Seriously, you are going to charge that much and not come through? Name can get you so far, Chef - you need to see what's happening in your restaurant. - Horrible service, I had to ask for water every time and drinks at a place that charges $90 for steak? - Sashimi for $5 a piece, please give me something...

We dined at Morimoto last week with a large group. I was extremely excited to try out this restaurant as I am a huge Iron Chef fan. Our server was horrible. She did odd things like take the drink order for two people at the table and not ask the rest of the group for their order. Drinks were slow... More

I came for sushi, but after scanning the menu, opted for a tasting menu and wine/sake pairing. What a home run! Of the two dozen or so tasting menu's I've had in the last decade on several continents, this meal stands at the top. This meal was exemplary on a number of fronts. First, the presentations were artful. Courses were... More

This was our second time at Morimoto’s. The first time the food was so good, we drove over an hour to visit again. As was the case last time, the food was as tasty as it was beautiful. We did the tasting menu (9 courses) both times. My husband and I informed the waiter of our last visit and what... More

This place was booked out and so all we could get at late notice was a seat along a bench where the staff make all the Sushi and Sashimi, and what an experience that was! We loved watching the chefs do their thing. My wife and I eat Japanese all the time and have done around the world including Japan,... More

we dropped in for just a quick bite ;-)) Lunch was amazing, we shared a red curry lunch set (a bit spicy for my taste) and the wagyu flatbread - both were fabulous and ample.

My husband brought me here on my golden birthday. I was impressed with its ambience. It's set along the riverfront with waterside dining patio. We started with the Kakuni, a 10-hour pork belly over rice congee with soy scallion jus. It was quite rich and I don't think I'll order this again. We also had the Rock Shrimp Tempura with... More
