    Enjoyed the omikase during our visit. Service and drinks were excellent, ambiance is beautiful. There were a few items we didn't love, and while the pescatarian offerings were good, for the price, it would have been nice to have some meat items.

    Amazing restaurant! We went for my boyfriend’s birthday, and it was a great experience. The restaurant had a very cool and eclectic interior design. The servers were very friendly. The food was so so good, especially the sushi, and came in reasonable portions. Some items are very pricey, but you can still get a very good meal without spending way too much.

    Jenny in the front was able to squeeze me and my girlfriend in for the busy 8pm sitting, kudos to her. Andrew the waiter did an outstanding job discussing the omakase and sushi tasting course and his service was exactly what you expect at such a restaurant. Andrew was a pleasure to deal with. Meal is pricey but worth it for a food lover. 2 people came out to $600 with tip. Would go back again.

    Service was excellent. But the food was quite disappointing. We ordered the multi course omakase. A few courses were very good. But at this price point the sushi should be spectacular. Instead it was borderline flavorless. Also the A5 wagyu, a 70 per head upgrade was slightly overcooked and not the tasty morsel one would expect. I felt like they are riding on the iron chef’s name. I get better sushi in my lunch order at work.

    We visited on a Wednesday night (on a whim) after a day in Philly, right before school started to celebrate two birthdays! Dinner was amazing, food was delicious as per usual and our waitress Andrea was very attentive and was knowledgeable on the menu items. One of the birthdays we celebrated was my 5 yr olds and they brought out complimentary ice cream for him and my other son which was a very nice gesture.

    This was just wonderful. My mother in law was visiting, and we wanted her to have a memorable experience. We absolutely made the right choice. The ambience was great, the food and service were great. I didn't even think about the noise level until this survey, but we could easily have a conversation in a pretty full restaurant, so I think that was just perfect as well.

    This was the fourth time we did the omakase, it was disappointing compared to the other three times. Overall pleased, dishes had good flavor and complexity, but several courses left a bit to be desired in and weren't as refined as we have experienced in the past. Times are tough all around and they are likely no exception, but it is unlikely we will do the omakase again any time soon.

    Good for exceptional as it always is. I was really disappointed in the safety outside of the restaurant. I know that is nothing Morimito can do about the declining area of the city but there are things they can implement to help customers feel safe. When I’m paying $200 for a steak I don’t want to get mugged or heckled. There was a man heckling everyone going in and out of the restaurant. There were also 2 men pacing the area obviously looking for people to follow. Perhaps reimplementing valet parking for customers and having a security guard outside handling the door and dissuading people from bothering customers. I’m sure your customer base would greatly appreciate it
