    Seriously excellent menu, food and service. We did a chef's tasting menu, and every course was top notch. Seared scallops were probably the best, but the sushi was melt in your mouth fresh.

    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!

    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.

    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

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.
  • Kelly M.
    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.

    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.

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

    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.

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

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

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

    Amazing place - great energy, amazing food and friendly staff. Try a bunch of plates - everything is amazing!!
  • Wilson F.
    Prepared dishes are "Vegas" style Japanese: attempts at creativity overshadowing the produce. Worse yet, had sashimi and all fish types (from toro to anago and kampachi) lacked in freshness.

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