    Food was impeccable and our server was amazing and thoughtful. My kids loved the ramen. We were celebrating our 15th anniversary. The only thing unpleasant was waiting 20 minutes to be seated. We were told by the host only after I had inquired a second time after checking in that they can’t seat us before the reservation time. And another unpleasantry was to be seated right in front to the kitchen door where the staff goes in and out. There were plentiful of other tables in better spots and I had to ask, is there another table away from the kitchen staff door? The host I think could have been a little more thoughtful from the front end.

    Arrived on time at 5.45 pm but they still let us wait unnecessarily for 15 minutes when we complained even though restaurant was still empty (excuse was they had to give kitchen staff, a break; nonsense since it opened for dinner service at 5 pm). It didn’t have some items which are typical at most sushi restaurants such as squid. Food was better than expected, so we were pleased about that. Service was attentive but at times annoying as the waitress kept interrupting us too often if we needed more food.

    I would have given a five star review but for one factor. The wait staff ( while exceptional in very way) were not wearing masks - this aspect prevented me from feeling as relaxed as I would have normally and it did take away from my full enjoyment. Given that the Omicron numbers are high ( tho stabilzed ), this health consideration would go along way, as the waitstaff in other restaurants in the area were/are wearing masks.

    Michael and staff were on point. The shrimp was outstanding. The tacos were fun. The duck confit fried rice was very good. The buri bop was delicious, the tuna melted on the palate as promised. The sushi was more than we needed and was not as special as I might have thought. All the other dishes we had were so filling. The dessert - cheese cake soufflé- was so scrumptious.

    Honestly, it really fell short of expectations. I had a friend describe it as “a place for Instagram more than food” and I can’t help but agree. The best thing there is the ishi yaki buri bop, which was pretty good, but everything else just felt so mediocre. We also ordered the rock shrimp tempura (which just was a bougie walnut shrimp), shishito peppers (average), and black cod (over cooked and way too sweet). The plating felt like it was trying too hard while being uninspired. The service was negligent. It took awhile to get our order taken and the server rarely checked on us. When he did, he was kind of rude. It also so noisy that you can’t talk to the person you came with. All in all, would not visit again.

    The biggest concern was we saw two people fall out of faulty chairs on patio and almost hit their heads. Saw others almost do the same. Really need to invest in better chairs to avoid not only lawsuits but potentially severely injuring or killing patrons. Realize good chairs are costly, but worthwhile for the safety of patrons. Waitstaff seemed aware of this as a known problem.

    Well, it was for my wife’s 60th, so she was very happy I selected Morimoto Napa for dinner! We were happy to be there and enjoy the experience. Nothing we had was ground breaking per se, but you we’re getting items and recipes that Chef Morimoto selected himself apparently, and the staff is well trained in confirming what your order is and describing in advance what to expect from each dish (flavor profiles, etc.) which is helpful. They also reconfirm what you have including flavor profiles once the food is delivered. Service is very attentive. Only complaint is there was nothing that was ground breaking, and “favorite” stick ribs appetizer came across as something from Chili’s or Appelby’s (offense intended). I will say that the shrimp tempura sushi roll was very very good and was a flavor I was not expecting! That stood out for me! All this said, we will likely return at some point to try his next restaurant offering that is pending in Napa.

    The food is always spectacular. We made reservations to enjoy a late lunch after an event filled day but a late lunch reservation means "Kitchen is closing in five minutes. Please place your order now." Sadly we felt rushed and could not enjoy the relaxed pace meal we had anticipated. I feel like reservations should be cut-off earlier to avoid the rush.
