This super chic Asian restaurant is dynamic, not as amazing as the New York operation with strange candle sticks in the middle of the tables and a weird blue glow from the partitions. Lunch was good value for the set menu. Black cod $21 with...More

I haven't been to Morimoto in years (actually since it first opened) and recently went with some out-of-town co-workers. Everything was spectacular. It's not just about the food (although that is a big component) but about the whole experience including atmosphere, service, food and selection....More

Dining here with a large party next week and was told our meal will be prix fixe. I'm not comfortable asking my host, so I called the restaurant to find out how much this would be, and the person I spoke to did not know. It is also not listed on their online menu. Can anyone give me an idea of what their prix fixe usually is per person?

Don't know either someone else paid for my meal but it was expensive based on a peek at the menu. The good is OK as well. Not great.
