This place is awesome. Any appetizer is delicious. Rock shrimp, duck duck duck, Kobe filet, all great entrees. The asparagus side is also delicious.read more

This imaginative Japanese fusion menu creates a notable dining experience. The Yellowtail on rice is delicious and entertaining since it is prepared tableside in a hot stone bowl.read more

Looking for a white that works well with sushi? Opt for Abbazia di Novacella's '06 sylvaner. A big, fruity white with exotic fruit and citrus flavors, with good acidity. Really nice!read more

Atmosphere is amazing! I would order the omikasa. It is a 4 course meal to give you a chance to taste the best they have to order that day. They have the 3 choices based on your budget.read more

Get the Omakase which means roughly, "In the chef's hands". Went there twice before I was a vegetarian and they were both amazingly inventive dinners. Most interesting dish was the jalapeno sorbet.read more

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…read more

Although he's rarely in house, Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto created the imaginative Japanese fusion menu at the heart of this striking eatery, notable for its sculpted white walls, undulating wooden ceiling, and booths that change color.…read 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…read more

Morimoto is excellent: No better sushi in Philly. The quality of the ingredients and freshness of fish are top-notch. Would recommend the tasting menu and the drink pairing...the kobe beef dish is very tasty! Fun, contemporary atmosphere also.read 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…read 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…read 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…read 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…read 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…read 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…read more
