Great mix of cooked & raw dishes on the menu. Inventive, artful & very pleasing to the eye & palate. Do I have to say more the owner is an IRON CHEF? Be sure to make room for a scrumptious dessert. <3
This was a masterpiece. The omakase is obviously a must...however the service is what we loved the most. Fresh everything and flavors that hit your mouth like a godamn freight train. Well done.
NYC Restaurant Week goodness $25 for 3 courses. Sashimi entree had the best raw octopus I've ever had and both dessert options-strawberry shortcake or espresso creme brûlée were winners
Food is incredibly good ! Tuna pizza, white tuna sashimi, the duck duck mi is really great too, and I love the tempura roll - The space and service are beautiful even the bathroom is cool
You must try the blow fish. It's really rare and expensive but so worth it. You'll never find it anywhere else. The oysters were amazing! Yes, the bathroom was amazing as well. Lol.
Definitely get the sushi. Their specials are also amazing particularly the keiji. Their staff is knowledgeable. The food has perfect textures and awesome subtle flavors playing off one another.
The food, the place, the service... Everything's nice! Even the bathrooms! And is it a coincidence that an Iron Chef's resto is near the studio of The Food Network?! Looove this place!
Was treated like a VIP because I'm a returning customer. Had their amazing omakase with lots of Uni, wagyu beef, rock fish, a variety of sushi. All exceptionally delicious. Ask to be served by Michael
Classy, modern atmosphere w/ great service! The rock shrimp tempura is a great appetizer to start. The mori-monkey bread is to die for; comes with chocolate-banana flavored ice cream. Must try it!
Awesome place. Great vibe and food. Got the 145 sashimi plate for 2 but honestly the 90 plate is more than enough - one of the few occasions where I can say that I struggled to finish sushi dinner.
Great food and delicious chocolate dessert! Especially delicious cod and sea bass. Ribeye on a hot rock was entertaining and tasty too! This place is somewhat expensive, but definitely worth coming!
great sushi in NYC : black cod is usually awesome (but I have been disappointed the last time, must try again ;-) and the location is great, close to meatpacking, go there before or after for a drink
This amazing place. Gorgeous decor, table and staff. Food was amazing sushi lover dream. Each plate looked perfect. The drinks were strong. Staff knowledgable with each dish. Only con is parking.
Get seated at the sushi bar so you can see your sushi being made. Everything on the menu is incredible. For dessert try the chilled cheese cake, best i ever had.
For such a nice restaurant, we had such a kind and patient hostess that really made the experience. The sashimi was divine and the freshest I've tasted. Everything was prepared nicely and tasted great
I had the omasake, great when you don't want to control your options. Next visit to try: rock shrimp! Next meal there: Oyster foiegras, surf & turf with an orange blossom and chocolate macadamia nut.
For a thoroughly unique Japanese experience (on an expense account), check this place out. If you like to be "wow-ed" by food, order the toro tartare - perfect appetizer for the art director in you.
Completely blown away by the quality of the food here. Amazing O-Toro!!! Def a must-try. Everything was fresh and delicious. The decor is very modern and classy. Wish Morimoto was there tho!!! :)
Everything is good here! Sushi deal for restaurant week was delicious! I've also had the duck here. It was excellent. Desserts are amazing and unique. Serving cd is fast and very friendly.
Easily one of my favorite places. Decked out in a breathtaking interior, the food is just as impressive. Recommendations include the Crispy Rock Shrimp Tempura and Duck, Duck, Duck, but anything goes.
Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto opened this multi-level haven for Japanese food that serves “Kentucky Fried” blowfish and cocktails in an underground lounge. It even has a sake expert on hand.
This place is beyond incredible. Start with the wyagu beef carpaccio or the Kakuni (pork belly). Then order either the duck duck duck or one of their ribeyes. Their steak rivals Peter Luger's.
Great maki rolls, chicken noodle ramen, Duckx3, braised miso cod, Vaccherin and Choc Nut Bar desserts. Very exxy and lack of atmosphere but good service.
Toro tartare is now their sort of signature appetizer. Worths trying for sure! Interior designed by Tadao Ando, Japanese legendary architect.
Enjoy our contemporary menu that mixes traditional Japanese ingredients with classic Western preparations. Daring diners can put themselves in the chef's hands and partake in the tasting menu.
Great modern Japanese restaurant. Go and order many of their appetizers. So good. For main, recommend the 'surt & turf' (pictured). : A
Sea bass is superb, soft, and cooked perfectly. Has a good serving for the price. Definitely have the honey sake, it is presented accordingly well. Sweet sake is a good have as well!
Came here for the restaurant week. The food was yum but the service was...quiet disappointing. A clumsy waiter dropped a bowl of greentea dessert on me and my friend. Never expected it to happen here
Iron Chef Morimoto's flagship restaurant. Beautiful interior space. Fresh ingredients. Make reservations in advances as it gets real busy. Chirashi and toro tartare were fantastic.
Make sure you ask for a private table. Reservation for 4 landed us at a communal table. Great to get to know the people next to you. Not so great for a nice family dinner.
Try the bone marrow! Also if you want to splurge (since you're already there), try the fatty tuna at market price. One of the best.
Everything is consistently amazing. Starters: spicy king crab legs, rock shrimp tempura, kakuni, toro tartare. Mains: black cod, duck, Wagyu filet (if you feel like balling out).
It doesn't much matter that the chirashi here is basically a bowl of assorted odd sushi bits over rice. They're Morimoto's assorted odd sushi bits and they're mighty delicious.
The black cod tastes really great! Actually I'm not fan of cod or any other kind of fish, but I do like this! Melt in your mouth:)
Surprisingly, this is a great place to go just for cocktails, but if you're feeling adventurous for new food, try the kentucky fried blowfish.
The Kakuni dinner appetizer amazing: comfort food flavors and textures, dished in perfect proportions in an aesthetically pleasing way. The tuna pizza is a must.
great non-sushi options... get the best wagyu (they have a5)! Otherwise the service is very respectable but not punctual -- a Buddakan copycat with minor intimacy.
The lunch combination with nigiri sushi and one maki roll is a great value and unbelievable quality! The atmosphere was nothing like I have ever experienced before.
Don't forget the cheesecake soufflé. There's plenty of room in your belly, because its perfectly light and deliciously right.
Everything is excellent but the Toro Tartar, shrimp rock tempura and the Sushi combination platter is a MUST! 😍😍
The food was gross. Great for people that think that like sushi. They ruined the crab leg with their nasty salty sauce. Too many good Japanese restaurants in NYC to waste your money here.
Fine restaurant, white minimalist atmosphere. Exsquisite fish. Toro Tartare, Oysters and Seafood Toban Yaki are delightful. A must in Japanese cusine!
Go to Iron Chef Morimoto's namesake restaurant for spectacular décor and order the oyster foie gras -- Kumamoto oysters, foie gras, uni and teriyaki sauce!
