Chefs Choice is not recommended
We were on our honeymoon and we stayed at the Andaz where Morimoto is located. It was great! The service was great! Joshua was our waiter and he was very nice and helpful. The food was so delicious. My husband got the angry chicken and it was amazing. I ordered a few rolls which were so fresh! So glad we went!!
If you've never been you missed out big-time!
Great food, great service and great ambiance
Best sushi and best representation of Japanese Cuisine
Tip top service, food and ambiance
It doesn't get any better if you love authenticity
On Friday night when my husband and I dined at Morimoto (june 1st) my curry monchong dish was overpowered by the taste and smell of fish sauce, ugh. A little fish sauce goes a long way. It was unappetizing and disappointing. I did not mention it to our server because I did not want to create a negative vibe, especially on our anniversary.
My husband loved his filet but my lobster was black on the inside, probably a sick lobster. I couldn’t eat it. The waitress said it probably needed to be cooked more but it made me lose my appetite. They did take it off the bill but it was very disturbing.
Inside much noisier than outside. Table was so wide that it was hard to hear person on other side. That said the food and service were fabulous. Authentic Japanese sushi chef - it makes a difference. Wonderful experience.
Sushi was definitely average tasting nothing special. Beautiful restaurant and excellent service. GUI s is deliciousness must try it!!
Great culinary experience
Went here while on honeymoon. Was craving sushi and did some research and Morimoto popped up. Ambiance is very nice. However, i was not thrilled with the service and the food was extremely small portions, mediocre in taste as well as overpriced.
The evening started off rough...arrived and had requested outside and they put us inside. It was VERY warm inside and add the Hawaii humidity it was unpleasant. Eventually it cooled off a little to a point where you could tolerate. We just did sushi rolls and they were very good. Great little cocktail menu as well. The donut dessert was off the chain and great. All in all decent place but definitely need to be outside. Felt bad for people next to us paying the big $$ for he chef pairing meal. It looked great but heard them complaining they couldn’t hear the chef because they weren’t speaking loud and inside makes it hard to hear people at your own table.
Flavourful food!!! Really amazing and attentive service. Beautiful room. Whole experience from entering the restaurant was superb. This has become my favourite restaurant in Maui
We were there on our honeymoon and it was absolutely perfect.
Good service good food especially sushi.
Service was amazing, food was average....but we only had the calamari salad, shrimp roll, and duck duck goose....so we hadn't tried too much. We sat inside and my only complaint is the outside bar blocks the view.
We had the 10-course omakase menu. This was our big night out for our honeymoon and it was one of the best meals of our lives.
Fabulous food, attentive staff, beautiful sunset view
Been a fan for a long time, glad we finally showed up! 4 of us had great cocktails and outstanding sushi, sashimi, and rolls. Can't wait to go back to try tasting menu and entrees.
Lovely setting, great service, knowledgeable waitstaff (Terry was our server and he was fantastic), delicious food!
Over priced full of itself. Ok sushi etc but nothing I haven't had before. Go on an expense account or just to say you were there. Meyeeh
We went for our anniversary which was our third time. The sushi I had was great. My wife ordered the Omakase which was terrible she spit food into her napkins on three of the 7 dishes. We were crammed between two other couples which was not romantic. We will find a new place to go next year.
Small, but delicious! Great cocktails too!
We both had the Omakase and it was wonderful. Having had it at the old location at the Modern in Honolulu I was very pleased to discover this location on Maui.
We chose to eat here after our wedding guests had all gone back to the mainland and we wanted a nice, romantic location to celebrate together.
Mahalo Morimoto for a perfect evening.
Absolutely delicious food. We went for the Omakase which was definitely worth it. We got the 9 course option which came with some ridiculously delicious wagyu beef. I felt like the ambiance was like any other hotel restaurant, lots of people in shorts, a little loud nothing special. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly.
Wonderful service! Great menu options with a beautiful ambiance
The tasting menu left a lot to be imagined. I was thinking it would be more omakase-style, but there was only one sushi course. The sushi and the toro tartar were delicious, but I definitely would stay away from the tasting menu. Big flops included a should've been hot, but was cold, oil to dip vegetables in (cool concept, horrible execution) and weirdly textured chawan.
Would have rated outstanding, but access for disabled individuals is a NIGHTMARE! Otherwise, an excellent wait staff made the experience pleasurable by accommodating special requests and ensuring our dining experience was outstanding.
We always love Morimoto Maui. Fresh fish from our favorite fish market, Tsukiji in Tokyo! Great sushi and sashimi platters. Our favorite comfort food is the Duck Meatball soup. We love ending the meal with another soup: Watermelon Gazpacho and Yuzu sorbet. Light and refreshing! Excellent service by the team of David and Keanu!
The Japanese fare prepared at Morimoto is excellent. Sushi etc, fresh and expertly prepared. I was disappointed in the local sweet corn, hamakua sweet corn dish. In a HAWAII where corn is harvested fresh yearly you would think the chef would know how to prepare. Fresh corn on the cob should pop and be sweet. Not mushed out as if was old corn. Yuck
It was great food. Although for the price I expected more. The atmosphere was the best.
And that Sea Urchin Carbonara!
Food was excellent. Waiter was extremely inattentive.
Awesome food and the server, Petra, was great. Despite the crowds the restaurant was very efficient as I would expect from a Morimoto restaurant. What I didn’t expect was the not so friendly hostess who didn’t even greet us, just said “do you have a reservation?” And the dirty menus. Overall a great experience; but still a little work to be done with staff and attention to detail.
third time here and did not disappoint. We were able to eat outside at the bar and could not have been happier with the setup. Beautiful view excellent food and ambiance. While it is not the cheapest meal around, it was very reasonable this go. The yellowtail sticky rice number is my favorite and I think i would eat it every night if i could Thanks for another fantastic meal!
