    The appetizers were unfortunately underwhelming. The sushi and sashimi did redeem the overall dining experience, however, at around $200 a head with drinks, I find it hard to recommend this place.

    You wouldn't expect it, but Morimoto has a happy hour in the upstairs lounge from 5-7pm with drink & food specials mostly under $10.

    Everything was amazing here, especially the duck and the yellow tail tuna. If you go here ask for Raymond. He was amazing!

    Modernist Iron Chef wizardry may dazzle the tourists, but it's the straight-up sushi and sashimi that really steals the show. Scallop, amberjack and fresh water eel are the must-haves.

    With Stephen Starr and Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto at the lead, Morimoto's original Philadelphia location is the perfect place to start a night in Center City.

    The 10 hour pork belly is absolutely incredible, as is the yuzu meringue tart. Yuzu meringue is a oerfectly light and citrus-y dessert for a hot, muggy day.

    Exquisite sushi. We split the chef's combination and wasabi fried rice. Everything was very fresh and high quality. Swanky atmosphere, too!

    Doing go here for the ramen. You'll buy disappointment. On the bright side, they have tasty main entrees, drinks, and a robust sake selection.

    The $80 Omakase is a ripoff as the dishes are uneven at best. Sushi rice was dry, sushi was OK at best. Disappointing.
