I was lucky enough to dine at Morimoto twice during my stay at The Modern Hotel. Each time the food was simply amazing. My favourite dishes were the tempura calamari salad and kakuni (pork belly)

My honey & I decided on this spot for our monthly "date night". We chose the omakase and everything was great! The highlight of the night was the chocolate fireball. Service was great! The decor is beautiful. And the dishes were delicious.

Very tasty and great mix of flavors. My hubby and I shared 1 appetizer, 1 entrée and dessert. Food is original and beautifully prepared. Prices on the steep side, but not outrageously so.

We visited for dinner despite learning that chef Morimoto had pulled out of this restaurant, and that it would be "transitioning" on December 8th. As such, we expected some "quirks" as typically happens in these situations. That's what we in fact experienced. We expected Monday...More
