Morimoto - Maui Ratings and Reviews

Disappointing. We ordered the chefs tasting menu, but the food was just fine, nothing blew me away or really stuck out. The presentation of the food was memorable, but I would rather remember the food than the way it was arranged on a plate.

The restaurant was super hot with no air flow under the steel roof, based on the direction the restaurant was built. Ordered both of the Wagyu beefs, filet and rib eye and lacked flavor and wasn't tender at all. The salad was super soggy over poured on dressing, The pork belly was great, if it wasn't this dish I would have given it no stars. For $300 there's way better options in Wailea.

We were the first people there for dinner. We moved tables due to about to be glaring sun in my face. We asked to move tables and were moved quickly. The original waiter kept staring at us and the new waitress....which was VERY awkward as if he was upset... I've been to Morimoto's several times in Napa and Florida and have never had a less than 5 star experience other than this one due to a waiter.

We made reservations months in advance only to be sat next to a table with toddlers (there were other open tables--very frustrating). Ignoring the fact that we had hot wheels and chopsticks thrown at us for most of our meal, the service was horrible. Multiple times our server forgot about us, even after saying he would be back to explain our drink flights. We weren't even give proper silverware, we ate our bone marrow with chopsticks. I have never been more disappointed with the service, especially considering we paid $200 for our meal. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Looking forward to my experience at morimoto's resto! Food was great, service was very good, however way to fast! We were in and out in an hour! With appetizers and a full
Plate of sashimi! We wanted to enjoy our experience a little more...but the food was so great that not much complaints other than we wanted it to last longer and appreciate the moment. We actually went to get desert somewhere else in the resort to stretch our night a little
More! ;-) our server though was great! Smiles the whole time! I think her name was Carla!
Oh as for the noise level, nothing the team could have done, but we had a very annoying table behind us and we're super super loud! Was hard to hear my hubby! :( but resto had no control!

Our family loved Morimoto Maui! The food was fresh and delicious! I would definitely recommend this restaurant. One thing to note is that the restaurant is located at the Andaz Resort and is at the bottom of about 100 stairs. The valet is happy to get a golf cart though and drive you down to the restaurant and your server will be able to arrange the return trip for you.

I was looking so forward to this restaurant. Having been an Iron Chef fan for many years I was expecting first class cuisine but unfortunately it was not even close. My BF and I wanted to order Sapporo beer but they were out at 8:15. That was the first ding on them. We ended up ordering three of their appetizer dishes which was plenty of food for the two of us. The Morimoto signature sushi platter was just not very good nor was the yellowtail sashimi. The tuna pizza was good but couldn't make up for the other mediocre dishes. The waiter was very nice as was the hostess. Unfortunately we won't dine there again. Price wise it was pretty reasonable. For beers and three appetizers it was about $130. We were both expecting it to be much more.

Honestly, this was the most disappointing dinners of our entire trip. The waiter was clueless. Although we specifically told him of our allergy concerns, we still received food with Sesame on it deeming it impossible for my wife to consume it. Unfamiliar with your wine list, we asked him for suggestions on a couple of wine choices. Asking for them to be fruity but not sweet. We chose a Rose, it was sweet, as was the choice of the Riesling. He had no clue. We had to wave him down several times for attention. We are from NYC and have ate at your sister restaurants many many times. This was so far below the standard and very disappointing. The décor, A++ as was the setting but, such a poor experience. So sad.

Hostess with the mostess was rude and made you feel like she was well above you. We asked for an outside table only to get an inside table while seeing there were clearly outside open tables the entire time we were at the restaurant. The sushi was ok but not at double/triple the price. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone traveling to Maui.

Amazing experience. Our waiter was very knowledgable. Service crew were on top of every detail. The food...remarkable flavor and presentations. The regional manager, Shin, came by our table and made experience even better explaining history of Morimoto and other restaurant locations. Can't wait to visit in Napa!! Best Birthday Dinner yet!!

The whole evening was fantastic. The hotel where Morimoto is - the Andoz - was really spectacular at night. The restaurant was also very beautiful...down by the lower pools with great lighting and design. The drinks were excellent. I had their Mule, and they make their own ginger beer. The sushi was outstanding. Some of the best I've ever had. The whole group really enjoyed our evening. And the donuts and green tea ice cream three ways were likewise excellent.

Service was outstanding. We are gluten free and the waitress Charity was fabulous she knew exactly what we could eat and have plenty of recommendations. Food was amazing. We had sushi and the award- winning ishi yaku buri bop which charity recommended and it was a delicious dish which they prepare at the table. A wonderful honeymoon dinner.

Most of the evening and the Omakase was fantastic, until we got to the end. The brown rice pana cotta was so disgusting, it kind of ruined the evening. You could say we left with a bad taste in our mouth. I was surprised they would drop the $500 bill off right after that interaction.

This review is on the service that we received during our dining experience at Morimoto. We stayed at the Andaz Maui in July for a couple of nights. My cousin highly recommended Morimoto as she had a very positive dining experience back in April. Now I believe she had an advantage. She had connections to one of the managers through a friend. Our experience was very memorable, and not in a positive way. We sat in the patio area. The view was beautiful and very scenic. Of course it was, we were in Maui! We were a little indecisive in selecting our entrees. The server was not helpful. He seemed short with us. Didn't offer recommendations. We ended up ordering very little because we wanted to get the heck out of there as quickly as possible!! I was observing other tables and their servers. The other servers were personable with their tables, talkative, and appeared extremely friendly. Other than bad service, the food was delicious. The portions are smaller compared to other high end restaurants.

Overall it was a nice dinner. Unfortunately we had a reservation for our anniversary, informed them it was our anniversary when I confirmed the reservation via phone, at 8p. We arrived almost 10 min early and though are table was set and ready (as far from a view as possible) they asked that we wait to sit in order to give the waitress a break. We sat over 15 min past our reservation. It took a long time to get many of our dishes and though the waitress was very nice overall it made for a long evening and not because we were trying to have an enjoyable lingering evening. At no point did anyone acknowledge our anniversary. It would have been fine to not extend any well wishes, but the delay in seating us, wait for food, and table in the back was unfortunate for a expensive celebratory evening. The majority of the dishes were delicious, just plan for a longer expensive meal and the overall service does not necessarily match it.

We had the 9 course Omakase meal. It was amazing until the next morning. I came down with food poisoning while in Maui. I wouldn't expect to get food poisoning from a $600 meal for two.
The waiter was great and knowledgeable but, the food poisoning really messed everything up. Pretty crappy since I was in Maui on vacation.

The food was delicious. The sushi was very fresh and nicely prepared, the ramen and clam miso were simple but scrumptious. We were very pleased with the food. The service was not great. The hostess was friendly and greeted us, but our server was not very helpful or friendly at all. He took our order, and did not check up on us once after our food was brought to the table. When we asked for some extra wasabi, he almost seemed upset that we were bothering him. We had to try and catch someone's attention to get our waters refilled. Not the level of service you'd expect at all. The food was outstanding, but unfortunately we wouldn't dine there again because of the service.
