I have been to Morimoto several times. After this last visit, I decided to write a review. So, I had to change my reservation time and the service really surprised me. I had to opt for a less than optimal time to take some out of town friends to dinner, but thankfully the uber nice reservationist called me back to let me know there was a cancelation of my preferred seating; which fit right into my schedule. That is great customer service!!!! It is a beautiful place to take friends who appreciate a well designed space. They were impressed! My favorite appetizers are: Spicy Crab; Oysters; Tuna Pizza; Pork Belly ( i could eat this forever) and Shrimp. Fresh and flavors are always spectacular. Sashimi is great-Uni is a bit in the tiny side, but it's not their fault for the size of the sea urchin available-it was super FRESH though. Service is very friendly and well mannered. We had a few laughs with him and my lady friends really appreciated him...I never tried it, but they said the White flower cocktail (I can't remember the name) was "yummy" they had a few... I tried to go outside of my reg drink and tried this really spicy, clear cocktail on recommendation-it knocked my socks off! SPICY HOTT, but good and went well with my sashimi. Presentation of the food is always very pleasing and my Duck Duck Duck was of course right on. Love it. The portions are just right. All 3 of my guests thoroughly enjoyed their entrees. It isn't a quiet place, but the vibe is perfect for people who want to have a good time laughing & speaking without having to whisper, because it has an upbeat place with energy.
