    Masaharu Morimoto's first signature restaurant right on the Riverfront. The sushi is amazing, but the daily “bento box style” lunch special is possibly the greatest culinary bargain in the country!

    Absolutely wonderful experience of an incredible detail oriented meticulous Iron Chef Japanese cuisine. Wonderful meal, interactive presentations, speedy 1 on 1 with smart sake somalier. Must visit!

    Went in at around 11:30pm for a late dinner. Their "late night" menu is less extensive but it covers all the basics. The chef's selection of sushi (and a maki) was excellent. Chef and staff were nice.

    Go with the Omakase (chefs tasting) it's not a lot of food and blew us away. If they have amber jacks you are in for a treat! Worse case def get the toro hamachi

    David S · September 15, 2014

    Good sushi. Fresh and great presentation. Rolls are 6 small pieces for a large rice. Ambience is awesome. Be careful when ordering sake as my first ordered sake and there were 12 shots in the bottle.

  • Elaine C.

    Great service. If you sit outside while the sun is out, watch out your raw fish may get cooked, best to keep in the shade. Uni carbonara was great. Tuna tartare was a visual treat

    Elaine Chow · July 7, 2013

    The savory Bone Marrow is a great way to start a night at Morimoto, where the chef shows his uncanny ability to create modern delights out of rustic, traditional dishes.

    My favorite management and staff of all the restaurants in downtown Napa. Consistent quality and great service. Tell the managers Filipo and Eduardo Chris and Scott sent you.

    spicy king crab and braised cod is so good, i would be go back just for them! plus, i will try bone marrow and roasted lobster next time! 5 star experience.

    It's usually pretty packed in the restaurant side of things. Sit up front and you won't have to wait. Sea Urchin Carbonara is wicked good for dinner.

  • Maya S.

    Go for the lunch set: I'm partial to the black cod and the Uni carbonara (opt for the miso w/ housemade tofu instead of salad) + nigiri.

    Maya Shanmugam · November 22, 2015

    Yummy! Not really a seafood guy but everything looked great! Plenty of awesome non sushi options.the porkchop! N so much more.the presentation was flawless.

  • Amortya R.

    The braised cod was amazing! So tender! We also got the garam masala lobster and the braised octopus appetizer. Great food as expected. Noisy place.

    During Napa Valley Restaurant Month in January you can enjoy a 2 course lunch for $20.00. Make sure to ask about the Restaurant Month Special!

    Everything here is obviously divine. Be sure to compliment your meal with the Chopstick Home Brew, Hamachi Tacos, and Wasabi Monkey Bread!

    Sabina B. · April 15, 2014
  • Henry P.

    Good variety of Japanese food with a mix of traditional and chef inspired options. Very Morimoto ;) with crunch, heat, flavor and raw fish.

    Henry Pham · September 16, 2013
  • John M.

    OMG the pork chop is to die for! Not what I went in for but it was recommended by our hotel and he was right! Great food and service!

    John Marshall · January 1, 2014
  • Mark H.

    This place was the bomb. Much better than I ever expected. Every course was excellent. Not a celeb chef gimmick this place is for foodies.

    Mark Hinkle · March 24, 2013
  • Boogie B.

    Pork dumplings and seasoned bone marrow appetizers are a must try! White lily cocktail is a creeper.

    Boogie Bear · July 13, 2013
  • Barry S.

    The braised octopus appetizer is an absolute grand slam - even if octopus makes you a bit nervous, give it a try - absolutely sublime.

    Barry Schuler · August 23, 2012
  • Jessica C.

    Cocktails and dessert were the stars. The green tea drink and bloody mary were superb. Smores dessert is to die for

    Jessica Chan · June 11, 2012

    From classic Japanese food to Asian fusion and excellent service. Had the ishi yaki buri bop entrée is just AMAZING!

    Fabio C. · November 11, 2013

    Do it right & order the Omakase & ask the sommelier to pair each course. Best Japanese restaurant experience of my life!!

    Brett Morrow · March 5, 2014
  • Sarah

    The Sea Urchin Carbonara is an absolute must-have. Even my non-seafood-eater boyfriend could not get enough of it!

    Sarah · March 26, 2013
  • Dave D.

    Combine both Omakase options together and enjoy the best meal of your life. ++wine pairing to further perfect

    Dave DeVisser · August 19, 2013
  • Jeremy R.

    Eat outside if you want to hear your dining companions; it's too loud indoors. Come hungry if you order the Omakase.

    Jeremy Reyes · July 10, 2011
  • Kim F.

    Try the Uni Cabonara Lunch Set - With veggie tempura & sushi of the day (spicy tuna maki, sake & hamachi)

    Kim Fujiwara · June 21, 2013
  • Michelle Z.

    Yose dofu, soft shell crab roll, are really nice. I'd stay away from the bone marrow and duck-flavored chawanmushi

    Michelle Zhou · June 11, 2012
  • Tony B.

    Amazing place - great energy, amazing food and friendly staff. Try a bunch of plates - everything is amazing!!

    The bar and lounge at Morimoto offer spectacular cocktails in an elegant setting with a unique menu to match.

    Dont miss the Foie Gras takoyaki or the Sea Urchin Carbonara. End all up with their tofu cheesecake:)

    Rika Putri · March 22, 2012
  • Nicole A.

    Sea urchin carbonara was too oily. There's an inch of oil sitting at the bottom of the bowl. Sushi was good though.

    Nicole A · February 1, 2014
  • Andy

    The beef carpaccio and the lobster won ton soup are two great places to begin your dining adventure

    Andy · March 13, 2013
  • Matt G.

    The lunch sets for $25 are hands down the best value in downtown. Try the Sea Urchin Carbonara. Delicious.

    Matt Graham · March 2, 2011
  • Cornelia H.

    Blistered shishito peppers are delicious. Soft shell crab roll is a little hard to eat but tasty.

    Cornelia Horner · July 12, 2015
  • Nadia M.

    I already can't wait to go back!! Must try the Sushi Tacos!! Wow!! Morimoto martini very nice.

    Out of everything we ate, the tuna pizza was the most memorable! Fantastic blend of flavor!

    Jared L · December 4, 2012
  • Dylan E.

    If you are looking for a great Cabernet to pair with your meal try the Pine Ridge Vineyards Cab. You won't be disappointed.

    Dylan Elliott · October 29, 2011
  • Shawn S.

    Try the coconut confections! Everyone misses the Confectionery at the entrance! DON'T YOU MISS IT!

    Shawn Steiner · August 16, 2013
  • Frank H.

    If possible, eat outdoor, the inside is extremely noisy, poor acoustics, but the food is excellent

    Frank Hanrahan · September 9, 2013
  • Shauna C.

    It's the Iron Chef's restaurant! The sushi is delish. Freshest fish in Napa! Swanky spot; excellent food.
