Omakase...oh my god I must say...you have to get it. We knew coming in here what we wanted to order and to get the best bang for your buck and to get a...read more

I wanted to love Morimoto and thought that I would but I left there feeling flat. There were many redeeming things about it but over all after spending...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
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…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
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
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
average at best: meal was only average. I had a sea bass whole fish meal and my partner had the $120 chef choice. although she liked the variety of her courses she was not overly impressed with the meal. My choice was mediocre at best. I could have gotten…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

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
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
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

Morimoto's restaurant: Morimoto's restuarant is incredible! Fromt eh food, the staff, and the ambiance, top quality all the way! The atmosphere is breathtaking and the food will leave you please! Creative, yet comforting! Morimoto has blended his traditional…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
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

Excellent food; ambience: Excellent food. Pricey. If you go with a fixed menu, don't try to order too much on the side. By the time course #5 is brought, you'll be full.read more
Where to Sit: Got 15 friends? Reserve the separate room with one glowing, recessed Japanese table for 16.read more
Very good but expected more: I love sushi, i love Food Network and Morimoto is known by chefs in the area to be a real nice guy. I had...read more
Save Money: Test out the Iron Chef at lunch and pay $16 to $28 for an entree, miso, fried rice and salad.read more
What to Drink: Sample dry and sweet sakes. Or try "Sakura," a cosmo made with sake.read more
Great sushi: Excellent fresh sushi. A bit pricey but good. Great drinks too. read more
Expensive and Unimpressive: I have to admit I love the Iron Chef, but his restaurant in Philly is not so hot. I've eaten there twice -...read more
It is what it is...: Recently voted one of the most overrated restaurants by PhillyMag, I'm afraid I'd have to agree. Yes, it's...read more
