A modern Japanese beach house inspired the design concept for Morimoto Maui. With uninterrupted 180-degree beach and ocean vistas are offered from nearly every seat in the restaurant and bar, further connecting guests to their environment through an intimate, relaxing experience. Neutral toned materials and shading elements and hand-crafted components have been incorporated into the design. A large cream-colored light box shade creates a glowing, warm ambiance in the adjacent sushi bar area. The woven finish lighting fixture recalls an oversized Japanese lantern. The sushi bar counter top is comprised of white oak wood, with iris green granite covering its façade. White oak bar stools outfit

Excellent restaurant with super friendly staff! The view is stunning! If you happen to go at the right time, you can get a sunset l, amazing dinner, and enjoy the Luau at the same time!

We’ve had two dinners there on our last trip to Maui! And our second dinner excelled all our expectations! Everything was amazing! Especially our amazing server Nancy! Plus the touch in the end for the desert with the strawberry truffle desert was the most beautiful...🥰More

I booked this restaurant 2 months in advance as it was our anniversary. When we arrived at our reserved time we had to wait 10+ minutes to be seated. We were then seated to an empty table by the walkway where we were standing. Why...the wait? Another couple waiting at the same time were taken to a far superior table but thought how did that happen as we were there first and had a reservation? We noticed a waiter that was only half masked and hopefully he would pull his mask up. Never did and of course he was our waiter. Service was pretty good but not great. Throughout our time there he always had his nose fully exposed. This is really unacceptable during covid times as we have to prove our health status but how do we know theirs? He is breathing all over our food and drinks. It is a good thing that it was outdoor dining but all drinks/food come from inside. Who knows how many staff inside were half masked? Staff never mentioned or acknowledged our anniversary as it was in the reservation. There were other tables celebrating birthdays and staff brought them a special dessert. We mentioned it to our half masked waiter and he didn't say sorry and mentioned that he can bring out something but it was too late.More

We reserved a table for 2 @4PM on 11/03/21 dinner on OpenTable. We tried to call restaurant on 11/2 to see if we can move reservation by 30 minutes to 4.30 PM. We must have called at least 20-30 times but no one will answer...phones. We emailed as well to restaurant and left voicemail but we received no response. We are very disappointed n lack of customer service from this establishmentMore

Reminds me of an airport restaurant - poor service and average (at best) food. Therefore it is obviously severely overpriced. Way better options around Wailea (and around Maui). This is low on the list.

After reading some of the recent bad reviews we were a little hesitant to keep our reservations, but decided to give it a try anyways, yesterday. The food was only ok and overpriced, given the quality. The soft shell crab baos were delicious though. Service...was only ok. We had to ask for a water refill a couple of times after our glasses were empty for a bit, something we wouldn't expect from a restaurant of this caliber. Another issue was that Kavalan whiskey (from Taiwan) was listed under their Japanese whiskeys section. Again, we would expect a restaurant of this caliber to properly identify their whiskeys. We mentioned this to our server who said that's a typo and will tell management. Overall, everything was only just okay.More

We got Wagyu carpaccio and kanapachi carpaccio. The Kanapachi was great, but the wagyu carpaccio could have been sliced thinner. We did some individual pieces: toro and uni which were great. We got the sushi platter for 2. All the sushi was delicious. The soy...sauce is infused with smoke so it tastes smoky and everything you dip in it is smokey flavored which I did not enjoy. The cocktails were good, but then the bar forgot our second round. Our waiter was attentive, informative, and very nice.More

When I first arrived at the restaurant I was in aw at how beautiful it is! The lighting made the atmosphere so amazing. The evening entertainment which includes the fire dancer were spectacular. That was just the beginning of this amazing evening. Nancy our server...came out and dazzled us with the menu. OMG the selections were amazing. I love fish and have not had fish from Maui. The wagyu beef carpaccio was so delicious and the sticky ribs also yummy. Chad the general manager greeted us and suggested some wine to pair with our dinner. He is an amazing manager and knows how to entertain his guess I will definitely be back again when I am back to Maui . It was so delicious I might not be able to wait till then.. Amazing amazing foodMore

From the time we arrived to the time we finished, our experience was the best service and meal I’ve had on the island. The food was absolutely AMAZING and our server Nancy made our special night (birthday and anniversary), a night to remember. We even...had the General Manager come by the table to make sure everything was to our liking and made some incredible suggestions that quite frankly, I would have never chosen and glad we did!! Thank you so much Morimono Maui!! You do not disappoint.More

I think like most Japanese restaurants they have have dairy free options, I'm not sure about Gluten Free. But any way great fish food!
