My son loved the sushi rolls, I absolutely loved the chestnut dessert but also was happy to discover that this is one of the few places where you can enjoy a proper Caipirinha. Will be back!

My family and I had been to Morimoto in Las Vegas. Over there we had an omakase and we were in love. Here in New York the omakase was mostly raw fish. After the first two dishes we decided it was not for us. Jonathan was kind enough to cancel the rest of the omakase and bring us the menu so we could order something else. The carrots were amazing, as well as the pork chop. The attention and the service were delightful.

Expected better from one of my favorite chef's restaurants, I get equally good sushi and shashimi in my local neighborhood of Astoria

Very Japanese style, minimalistic interior but comfortable and fitting. Food was great though I think overpriced. Service was excellent.

Friends and I try it over the restaurant week and really like it! Plenty of space with quite decent decoration. Even with many people the noise level is low. Staffs are very friendly and food is quite good!

Every part of the dining experience was great! The appetizers- miso soup and tuna tartar- were delicious.
We both had the sea bass and the incredible chocolate dessert! Great!! We have been here before several times and are never disappointed!

While the main courses: stake, and sea bass were excellent. The appetizers were really bad. Tuna tartare was bland and chicken yakitori was undercooked completely without flavor.

Entering Morimoto is like entering a different world - unusual and impressive. Surprisingly, there is are quiet areas which are separated but not separated through architectural sleight of hand - and one noisy "with it' vibe area for younger people than we are.

Some of the dishes were outstanding, some average. Expectable for a restaurant week menu - and indeed, happily offering more choices than most - but it looked like the really good food was mostly hidden away in the "regular" menu. She dishes were over salted - more than one of us complained about that, starting with the miso soup.

Morimoto is a wonderful place to take out of town visitors with its outstanding use of space - and surely there must be outstanding food there too, but perhaps hard to discover without (expensive) experimentation.

My friend and I had such a great experience. Travis, the GM is simply adorable and very accommodating. The whole waiting staff and the managers are extremely kind and attentive. Our server Linden was very patient and double checked with the chef a couple of times on my friends’ allergies. The food was delicious and we will be back.

Solid food by a legendary Chef. Beautiful decor and lovely ambience but definitely not for the stingy.

The food was absolutely incredible. Quality and flavor of food was top notch. The service was exceptional. Our waitress was extremely attentive and knowledgeable. The staff even apologized for the food coming out late without us even realizing it had taken extra time. The entire experience was fantastic and I would highly recommend dining here.

Went to celebrate a birthday. Excellent Meal. Highly recommend the Hot Stone A5 Wagyu, Sea Bass, Sushi Combination platter, Duck-Duck, and for dessert the flaming ball of chocolate. Wait staff were very attentive with exceptional service. Compliments to the Iron Chef Morimoto.

Waited over a hour for a table. Reservation was for 9:30 and got table at 10:40 after completely 6 times. All they said there is nothing they can do and wait at the bar

Restaurant Week is a bust. The portions are too small. They try to fill you up with 3 inch piece of fish and a bowl full of white rice

Overall a great place for Japanese food. A couple pieces of sashimi were not fresh though and the rice was mostly hard.

Quality food, but overpriced because of the Morimoto name. You can get the same quality for less in NYC. Additionally, the service was very polite, but we felt rushed.

Serene and upscale setting. Delicious and fresh sushi. Although Marimoto is known as an expensive restaurant, we found the lunch specials to be a tremendous value.
