“Very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2014 via mobile

I like to try different sushi restaurants all over the world.
I of course tried the chef's combination and I enjoyed it thoroughly. Morimoto would be one of my favorite spots, if it wasn't for the service. Staff are a tad rude, but the food is good!

“Great ambience and great fusion”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

The fusion is not only Jap + Western. It's more than just that. Really excited the taste bud especially creative with the Duck Duck Duck entree fusing Chinese Peking Duck style with Crossant! Awesome!

“Birthday dinner at the sushi bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

Visited this restaurant a few days ago for my birthday visit to NYC. The overall presence of the restaurant was great. The venue is absolutely beautiful. We were seated immediately upon arrival and opted for a table at the sushi bar. Almost immediately the sushi chef welcomed us. His name was Jorge. Throughout our meal he made us feel welcomed and answered all of our questions. The servers name was Sean and he was very attentive as well as knowledgable of the menu and sake list. We opted for the Omakase tasting menu and were delighted with the sake pairing the server suggested for us. This sake worked with every course of the tasting. Throughout our meal we mentioned how we had been treated horribly at Tao NYC and about how they failed to even acknowledge that it was my birthday... So to make it up I was surprised with a dessert platter that said happy birthday. Morimoto made my experience very special. At the end of dinner the manager came up to us and shook our hands and acknowledged my birthday celebration once again.

This place is a must if you are traveling to NYC and want some Japanese cuisine. Service and food was impeccable.

Love love love!

“Excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2014

We were taken here by New York friends and enjoyed an excellent meal at this lovely Japanese restaurant. Very stylish, minimalist interior decor, lots of glass partitions between groups of tables so not overly noisy. Great service and fantastic food. Highly recommended.

Not only is Morimoto visually stunning, but the food is absolutely incredible. The spicy king crab is a must, as is the waygu beef carpaccio. We also loved the sushi. The yellowtail cooked at your table in the stone bowl provided a show with a delicious reward. The cocktails were unique and our service was great!
