Morimoto - Maui Ratings and Reviews
My fiancé and I had an amazing experience here on our special engagement night. Set right next to the beach, the layout and scenery couldn't have been more perfect, especially while watching the sunset go down. The service was top notch, very knowledgeable and attentive waitstaff, yet gave us plenty of space to enjoy our privacy. Even the manager came over, gave us a warm welcome and congratulated us. The food was impeccable, the definition of art on a plate! The combination of unique ingredients left our mouths watering for more. We were both very impressed! (coming from my fiancée who is a chef) We will definitely be back to revisit our special memories and couldn't be more happy Morimoto could be a part of it. Well done!
Worst service ever! This wasn't the first time I've been to this restaurant and I would have to say I might never go back. Made a reservation weeks in advance as this was a favorite spot for our family, made sure we got a table on Friday night. When we got there, I requested outdoor seating as I counted 5 open tables on the patio, the hostess gave me a look and said it will be at least 30 mins, I told her to please check outside as I can see all the open tables. She rolled her eyes and told me to give her a few mins, we were seated outside a few minutes later. Throughout dinner we saw our waitress only 4 times, first to drop off the menu, 2nd time to order (which I had to ask someone to find her because she never came back), third time to check on the food and 4th time to get the bill. That was it! Never came to check on anything else, couldn't even be bothered to refill our water. At a resultant like this it took me asking 3 people and over 20 mins to get my water filled, how ridiculous is that?!? The setting for the restaurant was beautiful as usual, and if you get there when the sun sets, it's absolutely phenomenal. The food was excellent as always, but not enough to offset the experience we had this time, quite sad actually.
Aside from being in one of the most beautiful hotels on the island, the restaurant itself delivers a spectacular view with incredible ambiance. The name Morimoto already suggests a superior level of quality and skill, so even before coming our expectations had been set pretty high. We left this restaurant with a perma-grin and vows to return everytime we come to visit this island. The chef and his team did an exceptional job with every single dish, our standard of how Black Cod can and should be cooked is set pretty high going forward. My water glass never went past halfway as the wait staff came by (discreetly) to make sure my glass was always full. I have not one negative review about this place. It was simply exquisite! Thank you Morimoto team!
My husband and I enjoyed a beautiful and intimate dinner. For appetizers we had 1/2 dozen oysters, toro tartare (delicious and beautifully presented) and my husband had the bone marrow (he thought that the panko was a little overpowering).
Entrees- Seafood toban yaki and Surf and Turf. Both were yummy!
Dessert- Donuts with dipping sauces. Must try!
I was very excited to eat here, but was met with rude hostesses (3 who stood around and didn't seem to know what they were doing). Ended up eating at the bar instead of our reservation table, which the hostesses couldn't find. Then came to find us an hour later at the bar and asked us if we were ready to be seated. We were pretty much done at that point. The food was average. The bartenders were nice and that's what pretty much saved us from getting up and walking out.
We have been to other locations and never had this experience. Will not go back.
We enjoyed all of our food selections, with the help of our waiter- plus the Rose wine paired lovely. Hot spot at night for island dining and open later than most places on Maui- we had a great night. Sorry, did not get there for sunset- we were the late night diners.
Food was awesome, service not so much. Our server only came over once to pour our bottle of sake. We ended up pouring our own bottle. Not to mention, he didn't have a smile on his face the entire time. Expect delicious food, but be prepared to wait some time.
An excellent dining experience with the modern ambiance and accommodating staff. Every dish arrived within perfect timing. (Not too soon or all at once and not a long wait between courses) The staff did an amazing job making sure our needs were attended to. The kitchen's attention to detail left us impressed not only visually, but in taste as well.
Highly recommend Morimoto Maui for a quality dining experience!
Excellent restaurant with exceptional service and ambiance. The food, while somewhat pricey, is superb - fresh ingredients and twists on traditional recipes make Morimoto a must-try. Great wine list, and a great spot for date night. Try their “Chocolate!” dessert - I would go back just for it alone!
Best find in Maui this time around! Beautiful presentation. Amazing flavors. The waterfront location is perfect to witness the sunset as you dine. We will be back every time we visit Maui. MUST TRY THE ROCK SHRIMP APPETIZER. I ate it too fast to take a pic. The sushi was fresh and delicious!
Sushi was prepared well, but it wasn't as creative or exotic as I expected. Sushi menu was smaller than what you would see at most good sushi restaurants on Maui. However, some of their regular items you would only see sporadically as specialty items at other restaurants.
Overall very good, but nowhere near enough servers for the size crowd even after the dinner rush. We noticed two servers only for a crowded restaurant. We waited about 10 minutes before the server got to our table. We stood at the bar waiting for our table and the bartender didn't even acknowledge us. We finally had one of the busy busboys get the bartenders attention.
Prices were as expected, but the service was poor and put special request due to food allergies was ignored rendering half the meal inedible for my spouse. We didn't bother complaining since we couldn't wait for them to correct it due to another commitment.
Second time here (after 2 years) - Main server was rude, provided no suggestions - when we asked for sushi told us the place doesn't have "good" sushi - didn't anticipate our needs, made no eye contact and was a very negative experience. I had invited two of my top clients and was embarrassed by the overall experience. For the kind of money we ended up spending, we expect a certain level of service. They seriously fell short. Very disappointed.
The server "assistant" however, was great and attentive.
Honestly creative and worth the high price which makes it a value sort of experience. Wine options are creative and across the spectrum by price and selection. A few menu items were truly unique and nothing was over done. I regret not being able to visit again and again to test the rest of the menu. Seating was a bit uncomfortable...lean too far back.
Food was terribly disappointing. Don't let the iron chef name on th restaurant mislead you like it did us. Meal felt like it was from PF Changs and not worth the $$$. If you are a foodie- skip this place but definitely go to Ka'Ana kitchen 2 levels up at the Andaz.
I must say that Morimoto had me a bit disappointed since my last visit to his restaurant in Mexico City, however, his Maui location was excellent!!! I went there with my 10 y/o son who just loved the place, the food was excellent and the place is very nice located at the Andaz hotel... I will defiantly recommend Morimoto in Maui not so much Mexico City....
From the greeting through dinner a mediocre experience especially for the price. Booked 5 months in advance to be told no outdoor table when 3 were available. Then told an hour wait.
Decided to call the bluff and hit the bar. Medium attentiveness. Decided too eat at the bar, and as first round arrived the table was ready. It was 20 minutes after we arrived. Stayed at the bar.
Food, nothing you write home about. We eat out regularly including sushi. Surprised at quality. Rice was old, presentation lacking and fish lacked freshness and lacked the melt in your melt quality that it should have.
Spago at 4 Seasons and Nicks at Fairmont -- two much better for the dollar. Will not return.
This restaurant want to be trendy sleek and upscale. But it lacks warmth and a caring staff. The waiters are young men that lack experience, and are mostly huddled in a corner chatting.
The sushi chefs are very experienced and are the heart of the restaurant.
Management has made a terrible mistake chasing $$. For instance the$80 Waygu 8 oz filet comes out naked. How expensive would it be a include a scoop of rice and a few bok Choy? Not much is my guess. The steak was good as was my sushi however, you can get those items for less nearby and it is incredibly stupid to send out steak with nothing else on the plate.
The cocktail menu was less than impressive.
This trip to Maui we were celebrating my job change and decided to go with a recommendation the staff at the hotel where we were staying to go off property to try Morimoto. We ordered the Omakase, which, since we were new to the world or Morimoto didn't know about. We highly recommend it. It's basically a "Prix Fixe" menu that is pure inspiration from the chefs at the moment. Our server told us that if we come back or visit any of the other handful of location the chefs would be alerted to our previous Omakase in order to ensure we never ate the same dish twice. Do it!
