The food was served nicely but the taste was weird for me. It wasn’t authentic Asian food but neither was it fusion (especially for the steak)
Outstanding cuisine served by an accomplished team! Try the road to matcha dessert, urchin carbonara and any of the perfectly prepared sushi or sashimi.
Fabulous meal. I'd come here daily if my friends were up for it.
Seriously the best meal in Maui we went twice excellent
My wife and I had the 10 course Omakase menu with the wine pairing. What a wonderful if a bit overwhelming experience. Each course was amazing and the level of service rivaled any great restaurant we've eating at the world over.
This was the tenth time we have dined at Morimoto in Maui over the past 4 years., a meal we look forward to every time we are visiting. This time they were out of a lot of the raw fish offerings which was really disappointing. The food quality just doesn’t seem to be the same and the offerings have not evolved much so it lacks innovation for repeat diners. Definitely left feeling like we overpaid for an average meal. Time to move on...
My boyfriend and I loved this restaurant! We did the Chef's choice, and would choose it again in a heartbeat! Definitely would go back!
It has always been a dream of mine to dine at Morimoto's and now it has finally came to fruition. The himachi and chef tasting of sashimi and sushi were superb and fresh and the presentation was beautiful and breathtaking. Forget about dining any where else in Maui-this is the place that should be at the top of everyone's must-go-to list! Thank you for the exceptional service and dining experience that I will never forget.
Uninspired and not creative. Modest value. Living off the namesake of the celebrity chef. You can taste the complacency.
We had a great meal. The food and service were both fantastic.
It is a resort restaurant so you have to deal with that. Service was uneven
Having travelled around the world and eaten in almost every Morimoto and Nobu I can tell you this one is DISAPPOINTING with all capitals. The service quality reminds me of a low end Kansas City cafeteria and the food wasn’t much better. Actually that’s not true. The sushi is absolutely fantastic and so are the cold dishes but when you get to the kitchen they just can’t get it together. Steak that reminds you of a TV dinner, rock shrimp tempura, my foot just be Called batter with oil and noodles? The only thing that could have made my evening worse was a total lack of attention celebrating my daughter birthday in a disappointing venue where the staff has to constantly apologize for not having tables ready on time because the bus staff are useless or a kitchen that should simply be turned over of all staff. This was my 4th time dinning here trying to give you a chance there won’t be a 5th. Save your hard earned time and some money and go somewhere else. STRIKE 4x your out.
Always a great experience at Morimoto. Chef always surprises with new and old standby’s.
Not many choices if your vegetarian
And very expensive.
Almost 400 dollars for 2 adults and 3 kids specially If we are ordering all vegetarians .
Always great food accompanied by terrific service makes this a best place on the island.
Fantastic meal while on vacation in Maui. It was a bit awkward with the waiter...seemed to hesitate and linger, but otherwise great experience.
This next comment has nothing to do with the food or Morimoto Maui. It’s spring break, so granted kids are in all the restaurants, but it would be nice if parents made them behave. For the amount of money one is spending on this dinner it would be nice not to have the kids next to us banging their toys together without a word from their parents.
As usual the food and the service were great! I had made a reservation a month in advance and requested outside seating. We had guests visiting and wanted to treat them to a great dinner. When we arrived we were seated at the far rear of the outside seating and could not see the sunset from our location. Would have been more enjoyable with better seating.
Great meal. Chef is as inventive as ever.
Couldn’t decide what to eat and ended up ordering many appetizers and sides for table of 4. Everything we had was great and friendly n way to try many dishes at almost affordable prices. Waiter was great about spacing dishes so they didn’t all come at once. Ended up getting 3 deserts to share across table as well. Fun time.
Great food, great service, beautiful restaurant and great sunset.
Excellent, unique food flavors. Great service, a little loud but the amazing sunset made up for it!
Food as usual here at morimoto Maui did not disappointment, tasting menu was next level and Antica Cabernet superb
The food as usual is always an adventure and great
Horrible calamari. Fried bread crumbs essentially. No shrimp in tempura roll. Again fried crumbs. Rip off
The best restaurant in Maui!!!
Had a great time. Excellent food! Amazing sunset! Excellent server!
We got the omakase and it was great. A few of the courses were questionable in terms of taste. The servers were ok but weird about their seating. We had made reservations for two and were forced to sit on a shared couch with another couple, meanwhile there were multiple tables of 4 that were open. I finally had to insist on sitting at an open table. This really put me off and showed no discretion for customers paying for the cost of an omakase. I think morimoto Napa is way better in terms of food and service.
The restaurant is located at the Andaz next to one of the pools.
We have been to a few Morimoto locations and the food has never wow'd me.
We live within a four hour flight to Tokyo and eat a lot of Japanese Food/Sushi.
We decided to have dinner at Morimoto the day after our wedding (which was at the Andaz) with a group of friends, total party of 8. My husband and I ordered a lot ($300+ just for the two of us) and the food sounded great on the menu, but mediocre in taste (e.g. the bone marrow with caramelized onions, the taste of the bone marrow was overpowered by the onions). Needless to say, I probably won't eat at another Morimoto unless they come out with something that sounds absolutely amazing, or Morimoto himself is cooking.
The restaurant also did not offer us anything as celebration for our wedding.
The food quality was good but well below expectation for price and rating. Sansei Sushi was much better for less cost. Hostess and water person service was excellent. Waiter was slow, inattentive and lacked any form of engagement.
Overall, very disappointed with the service, high price, small quantity and only average quality. I won’t go back and won’t recommend the restaurant.
Food was really salty and sashimi was not fresh. I don't recommend any raw fish menu. The smell of sashimi was really unpleasant
Surprisingly poor. My belly has now stopped hurting but my soul never will. Resort feeding station nothing more.
Morimoto’s is a wonderful restaurant serving Japanese fusion food. The service was very good, but it is a little pricey.
Our experience nearly 4 years ago was amazing, but tonight was a disaster. The server was absent for most of the evening, and made repeated mistakes. Our order was wrong. Food was delivered at inconsistent intervals - my wife’s appetizer salad arrived 20 minutes ahead of my soup. One of our side dishes was missed, and we couldn’t get a second round of drinks. When the highlight of your evening is the guy who continually refills your water - I think things are bad.
A5 wagyu was amazing!
This restaurant has food that is worthy of its prices! But that’s about it.. The restaurant is very noisy, crowded , and the service was good at best! We needed to wait on our water glass to be filled several times. If you are looking for a special evening while in Maui- I’d suggest something else.
Overall a disappointment. We were here previously and had excellent meals. My wife is celiac and we found them unwilling to try to help with any gluten free options. Once we did settle on a meal it was quite disappointing. Fairly typical of the celebrity restaurants it seems.
4th time eating here over the last 2 visits to Wailea. Always exceptional food and service. Best restaurant in Wailea in our opinion.
Our expectations were high for a Morimoto restaurant in Maui and since this was a special occasion, a birthday, we ordered the Omakase ten course tasting menu for the 6 in our party.
The first five dishes were outstanding but the next three disappointed. The promised Wagyu A5 beef was NOT. Most of us had beef that was chewy and one of us had gristle. There was no marbling of fat that we would have expected having been shown the Wagyu in advance. The dish came as surf and turn with Chilean sea bass, which was cold on several of the plates.
Our head server was inattentive through the dinner, starting with the drink orders when she took orders for half of our party and served those drinks without taking orders for the rest of the group. it was only when we asked another staff person to send her back that the rest of the drink orders were taken.
On the other hand, the food runners get top marks for their attention and service.
There were very long lags between some dishes, even as plates from the current dish were being whisked away before we were finished eating.
At the outset we were asked about allergies, and noted an allergy to ginger for one person. The first dish served to all members of the party included ginger. Only when we raised the issue did we get an apology, and attention to the allergy through the balance of the meal.
At $200 per person for the ten course tasting menu, we expected a lot better service and consistent quality across all the dishes.
Good for but unable to enjoy cause the place was very very loud/ noisy!
Entree and dessert were amazing. Prices are sky high.
