We just happened to be walking by and stopped in. It was wonderful! We loved the upscale decor and service was first class all the way. Food was outstanding. It was a highlight of our day trip to the city.

This is the Japanese sushi place all to which all others in town aspire. If you are adventurous, try the tasting menu. Expensive but this is the place to try sushi to find out if you really like it.

An encomium in response to the question, "how was your dining experience?" as Morimoto, Philadelphia warrants. This was a wholly decadent experience, and as a follower of Morimoto since his NY Nobu days, I was pleased that my expectations were surpassed. Star's design is top of the line, and your eyes will be impressed here. The cocktails were superb (even the beer, donning his insignia, was impressive), the appetizers a perfect medley of flavours, the main course (we had surf & turf) were bliss. The highlight of my meal was the dessert. Yuzu merengue w/ raspberry mango. My gastronomic palette + mind cannot transform how incredible this was to words. Bravo, Morimoto, this panegyric well deserved.

I feel I should preface this with the fact that I am a huge Food network fan, so I looked forward to the experience of attending Morimoto's restaurant... Don't get me wrong, the sushi was great and the hazlenut beer was fantastic. But if you eat multiple courses (appetizers, sushi, entree, and dessert), our meal lasted about 3 and a half hours. For anyone who might not know, the booths are lit from the inside, not brightly, and change colors slowly. But if you suffer from migraines or epilepsy (like I do), it's okay for the first hour or so, but after that many hours... Well lets just say I went home with the worst migraine I've ever had and had to be hospitalized. Loved the food, sorry I can't have it again. But I felt compelled to warn others who have the same kind of problems.

For me the ends did not justify the means. The food was good but I didn't feel it matched up with the cost. It was an experience however. If you are interested in the surf and turf I would recommend buying your own kobe beef and cooking it yourself. The rock shrimp was my favorite.

This is extremely good sushi for Philadelphia, maybe the best I've had here. But it is average when compared to other high end sushi restaurants, and I would ven go as far to say that in NY I can get the same vairiety & quality fish on a "chef's choice" sashimi platter for about 30[%] less. The service is lacking - as a single diner I was given the worst seat in the house (behind the frosted cooler at the sushi bar - couldn't even see what was being prepared) and I got an attitude when I pointed out that they brought me the wrong entree. On the other hand, the dessert was delicious and creative. The woman across from me was doing an omakase menu and it looked amazing. All in all, this really did not stand out as a memorable meal.
