“All round terrific experience”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

$90 gets you an annual membership for two. Grounds are awe inspiring and extremely well kept. The restaurant is top notch. Excellent sushi and everything else on the menu as well. An all round terrific experience.

“The Morikami Cornell Cafe”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

The Cornell Café is inside the Morikami Japanese Gardens. I believe the Food Network listed it as one of the top three museum dining experiences in the country. The open-air cafe overlooks the gardens. Nice, varied menu. The only downside is that you go thru the museum and garden entrance before you can get to the café. So you’re faced with an entry fee. However, the gardens are a real treat so make it a combo visit. A quiet setting with great food and service.

“Rather disappointing”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

After reading the great reviews and the awards which this restaurant received, I was quite disappointed to get the tasteless duck entree. I would have sent it back but the waitress returned only to give us a bill 20 minutes later. The waitress highly recommended this entree. My partner had the beef rice bowl which was tasty. Service and price was fine. The place was very busy. Since this is the only restaurant at the museum, you either eat here or go hungry.

“Fantastic food and service”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Very delicious Crab Cake with Bang Bang Shrimp, Bento Box, and Almond Grouper. The setting is serene with a wonderful view across the lake. The food is topped only by the attentive service. Don't go only for the food; be sure to stroll the gardens and absorb the peacefulness, learn from the museum and shop at the charming gift store. This was my second visit to the Morikami after 4 years and even better than I remembered.
