The setting is beautiful, the restaurant is attractive, and the food is very good at a reasonable price. HOWEVER, when the server is not welcoming and attentive, a bad taste is left in one's mouth. And being nice at the end to receive a good...More

My wife and I visited Morikami for the first time on a recent Sunday. We arrived at about 1 and decided to try the Cafe. This was a good decision. We order the sushi/sashimi Bento box, a house salad with avocado, and the crab cake...More

Service was adequate, but the food was absolutely delicious. I ordered the veggie bento box, and my husband ordered the classic bento box. I do have a gluten allergy so unfortunately I was unable to enjoy the dumplings or the fried tofu. Aside from that,...More
