I've been going to Morimoto's since the place first opened back in 2010. In that time, it has never disappointed me. The servers have been great, the location is awesome (right off the Napa River), and the food is exquisite. I'll admit I've never had the sushi/sashimi there. Why? Because all the main foods are tasty enough that I don't... More

We had a reservation for a twelve course, three Michelin star, dinner, so just wanted something very light for lunch. We explained to the very nice waitress that we just wanted a small assortment of sushi and sashimi. 45 minutes later, we left with a bill for 225 dollars, which was mind-blowing for two people, for lunch, with only two...

Took my friend here for a birthday lunch mid week. Beautiful, sleek, modern restaurant in the heart of Napa. The back faces the river, so it would be nice to sit out side on a warm day. This restaurant is not for the faint of checkbook. We both had the fixed plate of black cod. Beautifully presented. Small portion of... More

Great venue. Just wish it wasn't that huge. Sushi is ok but appetizers are amazing. What i like about california vs. New york is they give you 2 pieces when ordering sushi. Not at morimoto. They give you one piece for one order. I recommend toro tartar and bone marrow and king crab.

We have eaten here many times since it opened and have never been disappointed. The food is always amazing! Great flavors artfully presented. The tuna pizza is to die for as were the ribs. Sushi was excellent. This is the second time we have requested Crystal as our server. Do yourself a favor and ask to be seated at her... More

This meal started at slow but mostly paid off in the end. We were 5 minutes early for our reservation but waited 15 to be seated; the woman at the front desk was brisk and did not offer us to go sit at the bar. So the initial part did not feel so welcoming. Luckily our waiter was quite friendly... More

The staff was friendly, Restaurant was clean and the sushi was quite good. I recommend eating here and I would certainly come back. Pricey but it's good quality.

We en;joyed another nice dinner at Morimoto, which is one of our favorite restaurants in Napa. We had cold sake as our beverage. We shared for our appetizer spicy crab legs. For dinner I had chirashi sushi, which was superb. My husband liked his ishi yaki buri bop, which is yellowtail on rice cooked table side in a hot stone... More

The table we were at was only 12" from the table next to us, makes it hard to have a conversation. The sushi was good, but nothing spectacular. I've had better at "hole in the wall" sushi places. They served way too fast, which can be good, but I asked the waiter to hold the order until we were done... More

Everything here is delicious! My favorite is the soft shell crab roll or the tempura roll, & the short ribs r osum too. Best plate sashimi ever. The steak is fabulous too. Go for lunch, it's way cheaper. & the drinks are delicious too.

Thank Kim H
