If I could rate 10stars I would. First, staff is excellent! We sat upstairs in the bar area which was perfect for us. The soft lighting was great, seating was comfortable. The service alone gets a 10 star, there was no waiting only time waited...More

We visited the original Iron Chef’s restaurant. The ambiance was nice with a modern look and changing lights around seats. The food was all excellent. From dumplings to edamame to salmon shabu shabu to chef’s choice sushi/ sashimi to surf/ turf (Wagyu beef/ hamachi). The...More

This has been one of our area favorites since its opening. We used to run into Chef Morimoto in the early days, but he's never there lately. The Omakase is phenomenal. I have had business associates from Tokyo that claim it is as good as...More

As soon as you walk into the restaurant, you will be impressed with the decor and lighting. Very chic, modern and romantic! The waiter was super professional and knowledgeable on all of the foods available. Not to mention, the food was superior! Would definitely return!

I have been to Chef Morimoto's restaurants in New York and Florida, Philadelphia is still my favorite. The design of the space is beautiful, the service is always spot on and the entrees, sushi and drinks - fresh and creative.

I was recently in Philadelphia and stopped by Morimoto’s restaurant for lunch. My mom and I both decided to do the omakase with the alcohol pairing. The omakase is $65 and you enjoy seven courses chosen by the chef. For the beverage pairing you also...More

The restaurant feels dated --the decor is stale and the acoustics are horrible. Great place to take someone you don't really want to talk to since it is hard to be heard - LOUD being the operative word. It took 45 minutes before we got...More
