Hospitality is unparalleled at this minimalistic and modern restaurant, especially when Eduardo is around. His genuine warmth and passion for Wine & Sake is infectious. I highly recommend the Duck Meatball soup, great salinity and amazing depth of flavor. The "off the menu" Spicy Scallop Roll is a must along with the King Crab Legs. Anything on this menu is...

I had such high expectations. My husband and I both ordered the Chirashi bowl. At $32, an outrageous price, I expected something beautiful. What a terrible presentation and tiny little cubes of fish. Cubes! Are you kidding me. I have had much better Chirashi, in small towns and Tokyo. I really felt cheated. The restaurant is also very loud.

Unique dining experience. Dined here for a late lunch with hubby - had wanted to go here since I had heard about this place. Concrete walls and concrete floors made the room loud and cold. Very trendy. Upscale. Unique food offerings. Great service. Pricey. However, not my kind of place - I like warm, cozy and intimate - hence the... More

This is a world-class restaurant situated on the Napa river with inside and outside dining. If it's possible eat outside. You can see people strolling by and enjoy the breezes. Inside the concrete floors and wall are an excellent sounding board and create a very noisy experience. I lived in Japan or 4 years and this place rivals the sushi... More

Came here with high expectations while visiting Napa on a February Friday night and I really don't know what the big deal is especially with the hype/prices/etc. I've had sushi of all types around the world and this is ok but given the prices and expectations it was a disappointing. First impressions was that this place is HUGE which is... More

Went into Morimoto for dinner with the family - we decided to order appetizers only - we had an incredible server who was very knowledgeable about the menu and even the ingredients in the appetizer - he was terrific and the food was very very good! I can't wait to go back!

If you want an EXCELLENT MEAL IN NAPA, look no further than Morimoto. Higher prices but WELL worth it. I have yet to have an item there that I haven't LOVED.

We had lunch at this restaurant. Fish was not fresh. Sushi rolls are very average. Any sushi restaurants in LA will be better than this restaurant. Extremely disappointed!

Wow! One of the best meals in Napa California downtown. I had the spicy King Crab hot appetizer. Wonderful. Our next was the red snapper with a side of spicy green beans. Wow again. Tempura roll was a great cold appetizer. We chose to have green hot tea, instead of wine. It went well with the meal. Live Life Today,... More
