This was the first time I ever had an omakase, and what an experience that was. The food here is top notch, and the vibe was very chic yet welcoming.
Everything here is amazing.
The food is fine, but what you're really paying for is the ambiance. Good for romantic dinners if you're seated on the lanai.
Do yourself a favour and order the spicy Alaskan crab. It comes with a side of fries drenched with the same spicy sauce. Hands down best fries! Loved it so much we ordered the fries on its own!
Hands down modern Japanese! Every server is an expert in their food!
Try the lobster melt and chicken ramen. Simple, but well-done.
Iron Chef Morimoto is the greatest Iron Chef. Order the whole menu over several visits.

Definitely a place to go to while in Waikiki. Service was very good and food was incredible. Tuna and foie gras are a must! The atmosphere also perfect, modern, chic and beautiful.
The sushi was delicious. The portions are small, but creatively prepared and presented. The prices were on the expensive side but worth it. Call ahead for reservations!
Try the tuna pizza for something different. Order their surf and turf and the red snapper. Both are very good.
The carpaccio is amazing. Always save room for dessert!
Better than one can imagine. Pricey, but each bite is an explosive sensory experience. Posh surroundings.
Pan-seared local snapper
Start with signature mai tai. Then the pork gyoza and beef carpaccio. Sashimi was fresh and delicious. I hope you run into the Chef!
Order the sashimi plate & the shrimp tempura appetizer they were both amazing!!!
If you want to get a table on a Saturday night come around 8:45pm!
It's just fine. eh.
Good, reasonably priced sushi. Nice breakfast. Great place for a special occasion
Miso black cod- amazing and not drenched in sauce
Try the soft shell crab roll
Try the Assorted Sushi
Try the Braised Colorado Lamb Shank
Try the Bone Marrow
Try the Xo Scallops
Surprise! Morimoto serves amazing breakfast too! The banana pancakes are amazing, paired with some thick slices of bacon. Yum!
Try their ramen
They put forks directly on the table, not on the serviette. Duck duck duck was undercooked although we asked for everything well done. Rolls were too spicy. 18% gratuity was included in the bill.
Try the 7 course tasting menu. Excellent
Their abalone takoyaki with the shoyu butter is to DIE for!!!!!!
The view of the marina from outdoor seating is amazing I'm not a foodie but enjoy a good meal. Morimoto is over rated.Went with the filet, I'm had better for cheaper.Stick w/the shrimp temp appetizer.
So I've been here a lot while staying at The Modern. You can't go wrong. Surprisingly, this place has my favorite American breakfast (eggs cooked perfectly). Dinner: try the gyoza. Awesome Mai Tai.
Tableside tofu is the absolute best
The Braised Black Cod is to die for. Also ordered market oysters and the chef's sashimi selection. Marimoto's is seafood heaven.
Call a day ahead for the crispy fish! Mediterranean Sea Bass - Branzino, only get 10 a night and gets flown in twice a week!
Fabu food but a bit salty. Try the surf n turf.
The omakase is very good although I suspect you could save by ordering a la carte dishes and sharing as the a la carte dishes are bigger. Good selection if sake
Joseph is a great waiter- friendly & knowledgable. The hamachi carpaccio is highly inventive, but not much food at all. The yellowtail pastrami is to die for. Try the buri bop entree- it hits the mark
Sit outside, perfect porch and heat lamps make for a perfect night!
Order the Omakase!!!
It's usually booked check opentable.com for availability!
