  • ChefMozI dined at Morimoto in late July, 2002. Overall, myself and the group that I was with had a great experience.We arrived at the restaurant at the time of our reservation and were immediately escorted to our table. Our waitress greeted us just after we had been seated and took our drink orders. She later answered several questions about the menu and was friendly. The only complaint I have about this restaurant, though, had to do with our waitress. Although friendly, and possessing a good understanding of the menu items, you could tell that she was not too thrilled about serving four patrons in their twenties. At the end of the night she received a 20% tip, but when we were originally seated at one of her tables, I am sure that she was thinking she would get much less, which was the reason she seemed less-than-thrilled to be serving us at first. I was much happier when she later ditched the attitude and became much more pleasant.I know that everyone in our party enjoyed their food thoroughly, but I can only elaborate on the dishes that I ordered. To start, I ordered the Warm Whitefish Carpaccio Appetizer. This dish was great! The presentation was outstanding and the pieces of fish, lightly fried in oil, were superb. By combining the remaining oil with the salad and edible Orchid Flower that were served, the entire plate was thoroughly enjoyed.For my entree, I ordered the Arctic Char. If you are unfamiliar with this fish, Arctic Char is somewhat familiar in taste to both Salmon and Trout. At Morimoto, this dish is pan roasted with maitaki mushrooms and served with a lobster sauce 'American.' Overall, this dish was also excellent. I wasn't too impressed with the presentation, and believe that the restaurant could improve in this area (in regards to this dish). But, I was very impressed with the taste. The sauce was the best part, and was the best lobster sauce that I have had at any restaurant. The fish was prepared very well, and I was surprised to discover that the skin of this fish can be enjoyed as well. Finally, the mushrooms provided an excellent match to both the fish and the sauce. I enjoyed this dish a lot, and would definitely order it again.Overall, this was one of the best dining experiences that I have ever had. Although expensive, you are paying for quality, and more-than-likely will not be disappointed in the experience you have dining at Morimoto. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

  • CollegeFashionistaWith Stephen Starr and Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto at the lead, Morimoto's original Philadelphia location is the perfect place to start a night in Center City.

  • Ned W.The $80 Omakase is a ripoff as the dishes are uneven at best. Sushi rice was dry, sushi was OK at best. Disappointing.

  • Visit PhillyAt the far end of Iron Chef Morimoto's sushi stronghold is a sushi bar where you can watch the culinary wizards make rolls and maki.

    55555 by Visit Philly


  • Ajit V.One of the great places in Philadelphia for pristine raw fish and clever composed dishes. Hope to God that the foie gras chawan mushi, maguro niçoise, and ten-hour pork "kakuni" make an appearance.

  • The FeastThe Iron Chef's first restaurant put Philadelphia on the culinary map, and the quality has never dipped below perfection. Of course, the Omakase is where it's at, but we love the Ramen, too.

    55555 by The Feast
