Great sushi

Excellent fresh sushi. A bit pricey but good. Great drinks too.

Morimoto is an “Iron Chef” culinary adventure in Philadelphi

Start the night off right with a specialty drink. The Guava Shiso-Jito is Smirnoff Citrus, guava nectar, mint, and lime. This is the best spin on a mojito I’ve ever had. It’s a great drink to relax with. I can feel the tropical breeze just thinking about it. Thumbs up with 5 stars!\r \r “Let’s get it on” with the entrees. Morimoto Surf and Turf is Kobe sirloin, hamachi ribbons, avocado salad, and herbed potatoes. T... view more

If Steve Jobs had a restaurant, I imagine it to be like this

This place reminded me of the ipod dock my daughter has; the plastic walls and tables are constanly changing colors, almost too slowly to detect until you realize the once purple walls are now green. I am hardly a Stephen Starr fan, and yet this place always intrigues and satisfies me. For lunch the other day a group of my work associates decided to treat ourselves to a nice meal. We split a bunch of appetizers, an... view more

Overpriced, and simply bad food!

I was very disappointed with the experience. After hearing so much about the restaurant I finally made a reservation for my birthday. We were greeted very well and the people aspect remained great and pleasant until the very end. However the rest of the evening proved to be not a memorable experience. \r \r The restaurant itself looked cheap. The ambient light and modern design seemed as if it was made out of \r... view more

way overpriced for ok food

I went in knowing it was going to be expensive, so price was not a huge concern. I wanted this meal to be about the experience since we were celebrating our first wedding anniversary. With that said, no matter what the price, the food was not very good. I was so disappointed! I ordered the $120 tasting menu and my husband got the rock shrimp tempura and the seafood toban yaki. 5/8 courses of the tasting menu were ... view more

Hit-or-miss

I have been to Morimoto three times. The first two times I was with my parents and had two excellent meals, including the tasting menu. However, my third trip to Morimoto was with my friend. The waiter all but ignored us for the entire meal, probably because we both look about 25. Instead our waiter lavished all of his attention on a table who was spending more money on Pellegrino water, cocktails, and multiple ap... view more

Mixed

I don't eat Sushi, but my boyfriend does and loves the Iron Chef. It's definitely overpriced in some regard. My boyfriend ordered the ""Chef's Choice"" he loved every single dish, but left there hungry and starving (that stinks when you spend over $100+ for your meal). We had to get room service late night in our hotel (a cheesesteak). I had some mixed fizzy drink, which was very good! The waiter was strange, ve... view more

Not Worth The Trip

On 09/29/2008 we drove from Baltimore to Philadelphia for a 5:30pm reservation on a Monday night. Upon arrival we were the only people there except the staff. We were seated and started out with a Morimoto Soba Ale and a non-alcoholic pineapple cocktail. We decided on three $120.00 Omakase and $85.00/$65.00 drink paring. We recieved a complimentary dish(About the size of a quarter) with a tiny peice of lobster and sa... view more

The Omakase is still the thing to get!

I've eaten here over a dozen times and I still love it as much as the first. If you're going to dine here, get the omakase and be sure to get the $120 because the $80 one will just get you the pedestrian stuff you see on the menu. I was here last night and the place was packed (on a wednesday!). If I didn't make my reservation for 8:15 I would've had to make it for 9:30 as all the spots were booked. I love the toro t... view more

Too expensive

I have a hard time believing Morimoto himself actually came up with the dishes this place serves. Every sauce is over sweetened and is simply lacking in flavor. The sushi is good however it is not worth $6 a piece. The ishy yaki buri bop is basically a $30 bowl of fried rice, $45 if you want a few ounces of fake ""Kobe"" beef in it. For the amount of money they charge, this place is too noisy, too cramped, and ... view more
