“There's A Difference”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

This was the first time that I have ever gone out to have the best meal that I could knowing that it was going to cost me. It was worth it. nothing magical, but the best darn sushi that I have ever had. The menu is simple, but what comes at you has more complexity than it looks like on the plate. Morimotosan was actually there when I went and he does greet diners, unlike Emerel, who hides from them. If your going to pay first class for your hard earned money, it better be first class. It is the real deal here!

“absolutely worth it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014

The food was amazing. We took the omakase and we couldn't have chosen better. Each dish was superb and quite original. We absolutely loved every minute of that evening. The staff was extremely friendly. Great atmosphere. And the sake, even though it was the cheapest bottle on the menu, was to die for! Very good on all levels. You won't be disappointed. A little expensive, yes, but the splurge is worth it!

“Omakase”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

Had the chef's tasting menu. Superb beyond belief. Had sushi, sashimi, wagyu beef, lobster, crabs, you name it.. it wasn't a heavy meal, rather a long celebration of food. Have been to Morimoto on other occasions, but I think this was the best food I have had in a long time.

“Spectacular Dining Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2014

Upon entering the restaurant for the first time, we were overwhelmed with the beauty of the interior design and the unique lighting. The food and service could not have been better. The Oh-Toro was the best we have ever had the pleasure of eating. We also loved our two entrees which were the Duck Duck Duck (madras roasted duck breast, duck confit fried rice, duck egg, mandarin oolong reduction) and the Morimoto Surf and Turf (kobe filet, hamachi ribbons and
avocado salad,herbed potatoes).
