This was our second time enjoying a dining experience at a Morimoto restaurant. My husband and I fell in love with omakase in Wailea a few years ago and once again, it didn't disappoint. However, this time our entire table of 6 enjoyed the experience which is the perfect way to go. The chef's choices were once again fresh, fun... More

Lively place. Big restaurant, though would definitely suggest reservations. Service was excellent. Menu is plentiful. Certainly enough options beyond Japanese fare. Wine and cocktail menu was plentiful as well, though after a day of wine drinking it was tough to look at the wine menu. One thing that I wasn't aware of was that most of the Napa restaurants allow... More

We were very disappointed in our recent experience at Morimoto Napa. Though the food was delicious, and the menu and specialty cocktails were very fun, the ambiance was a nightmare. Loud pulsing music combined with raised voices and the constant scraping of chairs to make this a sensory assault. We couldn't hear each other across the small table without shouting.... More

The pork belly appetizer was one of my favorite foods on the trip. The Angry Chicken entree was very good as well. The salted marbled potatoes side dish was awful. The potatoes were very under-cooked but even if they had been properly cooked it would have a very bland dish. We got a flaming chocolate dessert which was a cool... More

The popcorn shrimp with the different sauces and the ribs are still the most outstanding you could ever find at a restaurant Wait staff is always charming and very helpful. Wine list is perfect

After entering with high expectations, this was one of the worst dining experiences my wife and I have experienced in the Napa Valley. First, the interior design is sparse with lots of hard surfaces - as a result, the noise level is deafening at times - visually interesting but not all cozy or conducive to quiet conversation. Second, the service... More

In Napa on the long weekend for a family wedding. Big group of 14 for dinner at Morimoto Napa. Nicely setup table with a great server and assisted by additional staff. Noisy, bustling atmosphere with an open bar and beautiful decor, trendy and yet so Japanese. Open kitchen with sushi bar, many staff members back there making food. Too many... More

Never thought I would see, let alone try, sea urchin carbonara. Incredible. My wife had braised black cod, and I quote "the best fish I have ever had". Attentive service, excellent value for money and we WILL be back!
