Morimoto is a very chic and popular restaurant located in the Chelsea market building. The menu features classical Sushi and a lot of fusion dishes, many of them creative and interesting. Everything we had was good and the food presentation great. The service wasn't perfect, but not bad. So, why just an average rating? Because at the prices charged, good... More

First of all, the restaurant is very hard to find. There is no sign outside, only a very small "morimoto" etched into the glass. When it is raining outside and the windows are steamed up it is almost impossible to see. We did the chef's menu and advised the server that I don't care for too much raw food and... More

Lunch is served from 12: to 2: Monday through Thursday! The Eel Bop Bowl is built vertically and served in a sizzling hot bowl. There are also Bento boxes of sushi, sashimi, and sandwiches. There is even a burger. All reasonably priced for the New York Lunch crowd. My absolute favorite lunch place in Manhattan! For dessert try the flaming... More

Came here on a Friday night after reading a lot of good reviews. The place is quite cool with quite loud music (as most places in the area). The menu is so big, and since we didn't want to Waste alot of time looking at the menu, we ordered the tasting menu. The first dish was interesting, but from there... More

I've been to Morimoto many times and as a NYer I eat out more than I should, but in all my dining out experience, last night was the first time I had a tug of war with a waiter not over one but two plates. Twice a waiter was going to pull a dish before it was finished, and I... More

I am a big fan of Nobu but it was my first time in chef Morimoto's restaurants. It was absolutely fantastic experience. Service was outstanding , food was great ... Ambiance was also very good.

If you like high quality Sushi prepared in a traditional way but enjoy a stylish and modern atmosphere. This is the place. I like the one in Philadelphia a bit more as it is smaller and you see the chefs from any table. But the food is on the same level.

The food is ok, specifically: sushi is nothing special while the meat is very good. I strongly suggest to try the duck. However the prices are too high for what you get and the service is not that good (except for the sommelier, who is super kind).

Thank rossana b

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile

The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination.
