We decided to go here for dinner since we live in the Philadelphia area and we were amazed by the cool design and had high expectations for the food. We thought the food tasted well; however, it seemed like they tried to make the food more artistic and special than to focus on simply the taste. The highlight of our... More

My son and I have tried to make this place an annual excursion, the main limiting factor being cost, or it would be a weekly experience. The service is always extremely knowledgeable and impeccable, and the atmosphere pleasantly, wonderfully modernistic We each get the Omakase, mine generally with sake pairing. From first course to last it is absolutely superb and... More

We came here for my sister's surprise engagement dinner. Her fiance had reserved one of the private rooms downstairs. Our waiter was very attentive and professional. The food was phenomenal with each plate beautifully presented. We will definitely return the next time we are in Philly.

I visited the restaurant with 5 friends for a late night dinner. We did not have a reservation so the front desk recommended we sit at the upstairs bar/lounge instead. This was perfect! We were able to order from the full menu & the bar/lounge had small chairs and tables so felt very intimate! Our favorite cocktail was the Karai... More

We can see why Chef Morimoto is an Ironman Chef! The food was superb! Everything we ate was beautiful and delicious. We were there for a business dinner but they all stopped talking business to taste every delectable bite. Everyone of the six of us enjoyed our meal and would go back again in a heartbeat!

Loved the eclectic décor and amazing food-it was all that we expected. We started our meal with a delicious Morimoto martini and Arashi which were great recommendations by Benjamin. The Miso Rock Cod was incredibly moist and flavorful. The Seafood Toban Yaki had more seafood than could eat on my own- this was an incredible value. Finally we had the... More

I can't say enough about the food and service in this place!! It is the most fresh and delicious food I have had in I can't remember when. The noodles are made fresh and are delicious!! The sushi was incredible. The sea bass was delicious ! It's pricey but worth it!! I'd definitely go back!

I recently visited Morimoto in downtown Philadelphia for the first time. Our waiter, Makoto, was super kind and informative as it was our first time there. It's so cool as the tables, chairs, walls constantly change colors in soft hues throughout the evening. We ordered the tuna pizza which was spectacular, along with the Wego dumplings, to die for, followed... More
