Ate here Friday night. Three kumamoto oysters with a dab of fois gras and a speck of sea urchin $21.00. ouch! Portions small and prices very high. Before tip $150.00 for two and both both of us left hungry. Food no better than average.

We had dinner Saturday night and from beginning to end the meal, service, atmosphere were truly superb. We are true New Yorkers and have experienced the finest New York has to offer and Morimoto is a welcome addition. It more than holds it own with Nobu.

Had dinner with group of friends, menu looked interesting, but when the food came it was a different story. Had some interesting flavor. The rock shrimp came out luke warm. The morimoto buffalo sauce lacked flavor. The duck duck duck entree was bland. This restaurant is just overhyped. I almost drove to Philadelphia for this, good thing I waited. I thought Megu and Nobu were better in food and service. I was planning to try Buddakan, now I'll have to think again.

We arrived 10 min. early for our 7:45 reservation and were seated right away. It did take a while to get our first drink to the table, but the waitress asked us about 7 times if we were ready to order. Once we did, we had for appetizers the sashimi with 5 sauces...so great and the spicy crab which is out of this world. Then 2 sushi rolls (average) and for main courses, the cod and the rib eye...both were so flavorful and great. The decor was very zen like and of course there were tables of models, businessmen and friends all blending into the restaurant. I would suggest it for a fun and entertaining evening with great food.

From the spicy king crab appetizer to the Rock Shrimp Tempura, Morimoto rivals Nobu. I loved the chic atmosphere and the food is truly fresh and inventive. A great place to impress a date or an out of towner looking for celeb sightings.

Although Morimoto the chef comes with a huge reputation from his TV show, this restaurant fails to achieve anywhere near the heights that might have been expected. With the exception of the design and decor, pretty much everything about this restaurant is mediocre at best. On the 2 occassions I've been there, the service was highly inconsistent, veering from downright arrogant to highly inattentive - both inexcusable when you're paying these prices. And the food - it's nothing to write home about. My recommendation - save your $300 (for 2). There are a lot of other great dining options in NYC where you are treated better and are served more delicious and inspired cooking.

Well, we were a large party of 10 very well catered to. Our waiter was on top of everything and always had a smile on his face even in times of high stress. The food on the other hand was nothing to write home about. It seems like they spent more time into the presentation then the actual quality of the dish. The Apps. were middle grade and trust me in such a large party we sample almost every one. The Kobe carpaccio was great and the Hamachi tartar. The entrees were better quality than the sushi which besides the toro was just so-so.... the raw bar menu was ok but just ok. Thank god the desserts where rockin and yes we had everything on the menu.... The interior design was breathtaking. But the best thing in this new resturant was the R2D2 toilet that not only has a seat warmer, vibration button, built in bidet, changed positions but has an automatic flush that works everytime. So If you want to try this overpriced place my advice is to stop in for drinks and dessert and make sure you have to go to the bathroom!
