Morimoto is crappy.
Crappy ingredients like tasteless (frozen?) fish covered in sweet sauces, appetizers like rolls and fried shrimps of sports-bar quality...lots of flavors identical to the food I get from Suzie's on Bleecker St.
All servers were 20-somethings who didn't give a shit.
We waited over a half hour for our reserved table. Of the 6 of us, only the one who ordered a lobster was happy.
And I understand it's packed all the time. Who is eating this crap?
Honestly, it's been a long time since I've been insulted by the food I've been served.
Morimoto is an insultingly bad restaurant, and yet a major production.

I totally agree with you!!! For such a beautiful space and nice staff-wish thier food was worth a second visit!
Come on now. You don't really go there unless you're getting his Omakase directly. Or unless you appreciate Tadao Ando.
Try going to At Vermillion for a truly bad comedy of errors. Though I was really disappointed, hungry, and significantly poorer after my first and last Morimoto visit. Sadly it's all about the scene there.
