Excellent, friendly, and attentive service throughout the visit. Very hip and modern decor. If you were planning on going to a traditional Japanese restaurant, then this is not the place for you. The menu offered an array of Japanese fusion dishes. The sushi was very fresh and delicious, but I was expecting a slightly larger selection of choices. Save room for dessert! Overall, this was an excellent dining experience worthy of the Morimoto Iron Chef name!

Each dish we ordered was more beautiful than the next; exquisite attention to detail, quality, and freshness. We all felt overwhelmed by the largesse of the menu and while the servers are helpful and knowledgeable, we would have preferred less description and more direction. I know this is crazy but the bathrooms are amazing. Do NOT miss the bathrooms. The location is just above the Chelsea Markets and just below the High Line - a fantastic part of town to be in. It's pricey, but for a special occasion it hits the mark perfectly.

Often when a place is as designed as this, the food suffers, but definitely not the case here. Even at the price, the toro special is stellar. A great restaurant week choice too. Amazing service. And the custom bathrooms with infinity mirror blossoms ... sublime.
