Being in a lot of restaurants of that caliber that extremely high expectations. Great design,great otoro sushi however other food was good but nothing special. Meat was burned, service very very slow for restaurant at 30% capacity. As per my parents who where with me, location in Vegas was way better.

Morimoto at Chelsea Market is a great Japanese restaurant. The seafood is fresh. The tuna was like butter and just melts in your mouth. Usually miso soup does not excite anyone but Morimoto's miso soup was delicious. It was served with chunks of tofu! The vegetable tempura was perfectly fried and not oily at all. Their soft shell crab sushi... More

Sushi is one of my favorite dishes, so naturally, I love Morimoto. However, I think if you are looking for a quick meal this is not the place. While the sushi is great it is extremely expensive. There are many other fine-dining restaurants that are better as well. But it is worth a try if you have never been.

I have been to Morimoto many times over the past few years and Ive witnessed its slight deterioration, however this last Saturday was a disaster. Two out of our six food items were not good (used to be delicious before), waitress forgot our drink order and by the time she remembered they discovered they were out of the Saki we... More

Tried Morimoto on advice from as friend and have to say it was excellent. The premises is fantastic and the food divine. Great selection of seafood but also something for this less inclined. The fiery chocolate desert is a must try. Definitely worth dining here.

They unfortunately only serve lunch a few days of the week...but when they do, their $25 box lunch can't be beat for value. The food is always to amazing, service is always great, and his selection of sake is unbeatable.

Eaten here before many times. Food was far superior on prior visit. Maybe an off night. Service was extremely poor. Maybe because of overcrowding. Will give it another try and rerate in a couple of months but skipping till then. First time I'm rating it. Hope next time it's a stronger rating.
