I didin't have any issues with the service or food. Was not cheap but hardly overpriced considering the location either. Lobster fritters!

Have the previous reviewers been to same restaurant I have? Because it definitely doesn't seem to be the case. My husband and I dined at Morimoto's over a month ago and it was simply one of the best meals we've ever had. The staff was super sweet and pretty helpful, the drinks were out of this world (you have to try their signature cocktail), the food was everything you want high end restaurant food to be: delicious, delicate, flavorful, colorful... even the desserts were amazing. I'd recommend this restaurant to everyone who wants light, creative, party-in-your-mouth Japanese food.

To the kitchen ! I have an expression that goes.. When the Gorilla is not around the monkeys dance on the sushibar. We were seated at the bar, still no personal attending from any chef ? Sushi was dry and some fish tasted off. No level of freshness. We ordered the bento with broiled hamachi, got spines in it and it was overcooked... Everything else tasted bland. I will not return to this establishment if not treated by the man himself. Sry.

We went last night to try the Omakase menu which I love ordering at high end Japanese restaurants. The presentation was phenomenal but the food was a little boring. It had some interesting flavors but nothing to write home about. I know this place is all about the scene but being Morimoto's restaurant I expected more. The service isn't so great we had to wait 30+ even though we had a reservation and the waitress got quite annoying towards the end trying to sell us more items. I won't be going back.

I dined here in 2009 with som friends, we where greeted by Morimoto, a very tired chef I must say. Being a sushichef and owner of my own I dont want to end up like that guy, greeting guests and roam around. The sushi wasnt as good as expected, fresh in ingredients yes but no heart in to it. Rice was no good, and yes this place is overpriced for the standards they serve. If I where the Iron Chef I would have runned that kitchen with an Iron Fist. This is a one time visit restaurant. No feeling of wanting to return. That said all hail to Morimoto for his genious dishes in Iron Chef competitions.

Over from London for the weekend, looked through a restaurant guide with Japanese on our minds and agreed on Morimoto. On arrival first impressions were very good, we got seated downstairs at a high table which was okay but seeing as we declined sitting at the bar as wanted to be comfortable this wasnt ideal. Ordered a selection of sushi to start and a hot appetizer ... hot appetizer never arrived although the sushi was amazing, the temperature where we were seated was freezing cold so we asked if they could turn the heating up (this was ignored) people at surrounding tables also started to layer up with cardigans and pashminas, seeing as it was sub-zero outside the fact it was sub-zero inside was quite exhausting and made us rush our meal, main courses were okay the black cod was lovely (a favourite of mine) but the sea bass was slimey and veg so soft it dissolved and you couldnt even really tell what it was. All in all sushi good, atmosphere good, service not great and when asked on leaving if we enjoyed our meal our response of "It was okay but not as good as we expected" was simply met with a confused shrug ... leading us to question what the point of asking us was. Left feeling it could have been worse but could have been a LOT better.
