We ate at Sushi Muramota before attending a movie at the Sundance Theater. The location is literally across the street from the theater. The restaurant was packed but they were able to seat us at the bar. I really enjoyed the ambiance of the bar. Beautiful stone wall; warm colors, busy but not loud. Fun place to be with lots... More

This was a four and a half star restaurant due to a great bar and great service. The sushi is excellent - as are various appetizers, we grazed for hours on a mix of these side dishes and sushi and sashimi - but giving five stars to a sushi restaurant is a rare occasion for me. We particularly enjoyed to... More

We had heard rave reviews about Sushi Muramoto, so we decided to give it a try, for a family celebration. We ordered for take out, to supplement other food we planned to serve. The guest of honor lives in New York City, and has had sushi at some of the best sushi places there. We ordered their salmon nigiri, soft... More

We arrived early on Saturday evening (about 5:30 pm) without reservation. Very few tables were occupied and we were seated immediately. It was our first visit here so it took some time to review the menu. We ordered an appetizer of edamame and then placed our sushi order (a variety of nigiri and maki for my wife and son to... More

Arrived 12:50 on a busy Saturday for lunch. Seated 1:00. Our food arrived 1:45. I'm talking a simple sashimi order. How long can that take??? Had to ask to get water glasses filled. No explanation, no apology, and not even a comped salad or dessert to apologize for the wait. Won't be back.

We visited this restaurant during our recent (business) trip to Madison, WI. The menu had a good selection of sushi, nikiri, sashimi, bowls, etc. highly recommend the Asian Slaw. Highly recommended!

This is far and away the best sushi restaurant in Madison. The others, with typically multiple venues, are wannabees that serve "American Sushi". They are all heavy on the inside out rolls, deep friend rolls (horrors) and whatever trend from the west coast. For quality of the ingredients and quantity of the protein in the portions, Sushi Muramoto is the... More

I have had sushi all around the world. Muramoto - not the downtown location - is in the top 10. the cuts are very fresh and many of the rolls are well executed. The rolls are not too original, and it would be nice to see daily special rolls to mix it up a bit, but they are all good.... More

We always have trouble getting in since their policy is no reservations for less than 6 people. Decided to try anyway on a Saturday night and got in under 30 minutes (unheard of). The service was incredible - our waitress was spot-on -- refilling water before we had to ask -- asking if we needed drink refills, etc. The food... More

I keep going back. That should tell you! Only miss was the eggplant in the side. It's rubbery. But, sadly, eggplant is just one of those things that often doesn't get thoroughly cooked. The Jamar steak has been good as has been the chicken teriyaki.
