This is the restaurant at Morikami Gardens in Boca Raton. As one would expect, it is Japanese food. We had a side dish and one bento box, plus a frozen cappuccino ice cream dessert. And iced green tea. No surprises, but very nicely prepared. The...More

The food is definitely good and worth the experience but if you’re just going in to eat it will cost you an admissions fee into the gardens. If you a member for the year of the gardens you get a little discount. The food it...More

Unimpressive lunch. Had the crispy pork which was reheated. A Chinese buffet might have been a better choice. Staff is very friendly. Lunch was actually pretty expensive. Had to buy admission (inside exhibits closed for renovations) to dine at the cafe.

Great meal with a great view. Best sushi I've ever had. My only complaint is that the service is a little spotty. The quality of the food and view more than make up for the service.

Our hosts suggested we have an early lunch before walking the Morikami grounds. Good idea. There were long lines (on a Friday) waiting for a table when we were finished at 12:30. Our meals were outstanding. My “vegetarian box” was an assortment of flavors and...More

The Cornell Cafe certainly has a variety of delicious authentically Japanese meals. The food is excellent and there is a good selection to choose from. The service could use improvement. We were a party of 7 and they clearly could not handle it. All but...More
