We on a Friday evening and I am glad to have made reservations ahead of time as the place was packed. The server was very attentative and thoroughly knowledgable about the sushi. We didn't use the extensive menu but asked our server for her recommendations and everyone was over the moon with the yummy food. My favorite was the spicy... More

What appears to small on the outside is massive on the inside. With a bar and two dining areas separated by a zen courtyard outside, you are invited into their world. The choice of sushi rolls are plenty as well as their extensive drink menu. A highlight is their sake flight. I had never been a fan before until I... More

Momiji is a wonderful restaurant with a superb menu featuring sushi, rolls, omakase and other Japanese food. We especially liked the great atmosphere and the zen garden in the middle of the restaurant. We came on a Monday evening – the place was busy but we were seated immediately. The service was very friendly and efficient. We started with Shochu... More

Went on a busy Friday night. There was about an hour wait, but we were having fun catching up so it was okay! Service was fantastic, food was impeccable loved the Pike St roll and the Crunchy Seattle. Also the 7 spice crab appetizer was delicious. The decor is breathtaking. Would totally go again!

We ordered one $60 omakase, yellowtail sashimi and some special rolls. One with a coconut topping and mango glaze was just okay (the topping didn't quite fit); the other with creamy scallops was great. The sushi and sashimi were delicate, tasty and nicely sized. The service was caring and gave solid recommendations. The black sesame ice cream was delicious. Their... More

We went to Momiji with high hope because of its diverse menu. To that end, we tried to sample across the menu from sushi to roll to cold noodles to grilled dishes. Unfortunately, nothing even approaching good arrived at our table. Nothing was outright bad, but that's about all I can say about the quality of food. I won't ever... More

We visited at 10:30 pm - so we took advantage of the late night happy hour. You can't beat these prices. And the sushi - no words! Best I ever had. We also loved their spicy tofu and tomatoes dish ( went back for seconds), their poke and other fun late night menu items.

Had the small sashimi plate. 7 types of fish, 2 pieces each. The portion size was generous, and oh so tasty! We also ordered the ahi poke and a few rolls--amazing! So fresh and tasty, even at 11:30 pm! You have to try this place!

This is a much bigger restaurant than it appears from the outside. The atmosphere is humming and quite pleasant overall. The wait staff were excellent. Moreover the food was fresh, well presented and extremely tasty. We ordered 6 dishes between the two of us, which was more than enough as the portions are generous. It was also not as expensive...

Nestled on 12th Avenue off East Pike in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle, you will find Momiji. Wife and I had dinner there on a Friday night in June 2016. As it was not too far a walk from our hotel, and we both love sushi, and the reviews on this restaurant were excellent, it was a no-brainer that... More
