Morimoto - Maui Ratings and Reviews

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.

The food was great, service was great, and overall the experience was great. The food came quickly and even with the speed it tasted excellent. The waiter also made sure to explain all of the menu items and our water glasses were never empty as they came and filled it every time we took a sip. They explained the menu and accommodated to everyone's dietary needs as well.

Was an honor to experience a menu designed by an Iron Chef. The food was amazing and the atmosphere was elegant. The wait staff was 10/10, server had more than adequate knowledge and each dish was plated if we were royalty. For being a 5 star restaurant the price was very affordable and prices are posted in menu which is rare in Hawaii.
Recommend Chefs 7 course dish and share with 3 people dont let $140 price tag scare you just remember this may be the best plate of your life
MAHALO NUI LOA TO MASTER CHEF

Possibly the best dining experience I've ever had. The prices are high, but actually well worth the attention to detail and amazing food you are delighted with. It is absolutely amazing and lives up to all the hype.

We were very excited to try this restaurant but for the price (well over $500) for 4 people and no wine, it seemed very expensive and at least 2 tummies were not very happy the next day. A lot of different staff brought the multiple courses to my husband and were not very excited about explaining what each was. Probably will not recommend this restaurant to friends traveling.

The highlight of the experience was our waiter, Scott. He was knowledgable, patient and very helpful. The food was fairly priced for the quality of the ingredients. Unfortunately, our dishes lacked the depth found in similar Japanese recipes. This may have been due to the resort location and a general lack of cuisine culpability in the Wailea area of Maui.

Honestly not bad but not great. This sushi is overpriced and I felt as though the waiting staff was trying very hard to upsale the dinner with recommendations I did not ask for. And he recommended the family style with would feed 3-4 people but it was just me and my partner. Sadly we will not return.

We got the omikase and it was a surreal dining experience. Each dish brought was a true food experience and chastised our palate like crazy. We wanted to go back again during our vacation stay in Maui because none of the other restaurants could match this one in food and service. Really love the service and how they take care of you.

Definitely one of the best dining experiences we had on Maui this trip around. Would highly recommend. Poolside location a little worrisome since kids were still playing in it, but it wasn't too bad when we dined. Retractable roof was lovely with the stars overhead. Food was impeccable, from hamachi tartare and tacos, to gyoza with bacon foam and spicy crab legs (simple but oh so delicious). For mains we shared the duck duck goose - foie melted in duck confit fried rice, perfectly done duck breast, duck meatball soup and a leg of duck confit ... mmmmmm. Then we shared the whole branzino was crispy, the tofu great, but overall probably just ok compared to the rest. Would put this on anyone's to do list and can't wait to go back and give it another go.

Amazing, outstanding, out of this world. We went for lunch and had a fantastic experience. The food was ...well there are just no words for how wonderful it was. We went to dinner at a very nice restaurant a couple hours later but I couldn't stop talking about what I had for lunch at Morimoto's. Staff was ver professional and courteous.

This place was really nothing like other high end places. Ive been to the best, French Laundry, Nobu, etc this place was a total disappointment. The food quality was poor. Freshness and taste were poor. Service was strange. We had a tasting menu ($200) and some additional dishes. Tasting menu was terrible. They even mangled Waigu steak. Cooked fish smelled fishy and special dishes were anything but.....
Even the straightforward sushi was tough and not flavorful. This was a total disappointment for $450 ($100 of sake). Avoid it PLEASE, there are many any other good places on Maui to have a high end meal.

Excellent food from iron chef morimoto. Opted for the Waygu carpaccio and the toro tartare to start which were beyond amazing. Had the chefs choice sushi and sashimi plates and shared them which was fresh and so good.

Not worth the price tag! This is our 3rd time visiting this restaurant on vacation and unfortunately they have not worked out their service issues. The service was very poor and the food quality is not worth the hefty price tag. I suspect the restaurant does well since the Iron Chef is world famous but that's where it ends. We will not be visiting this establishment in the future.
AMAZING FOOD! Subpar service.
Morimoto's is amazing and so is his food. The taste was to die for and his presentation is so unique and creative. However, the service here was subpar. We were there for over 30 minutes before we finally called the host over to order because our server never stopped by to check on us after initially getting our drink order. We ordered the chefs choice, which is 9 courses however we ended up only getting 8 and by the time we realized this we had already been there almost 3 hours. Again, I would recommend this place for the amazing food, but the service definitely has room for improvement.
