First time for my better half and I to try a set menu, chef's choice, 7-course. I'll describe what I remember what was what but for the most part I'll just post pictures and say what I think at the end, except for one thing I must mention first. I did not expect too much but I thought that a place like this would be a little more quiet ... romantic .... upscale? Upscale indeed it is but the place reminds me of an upgraded Yardhouse. Little to no noise dampening, people everywhere talking loud and others talking louder to be able to talk over the ones talking talk. Then there's the ones yelling to be heard over the ones talking louder and loudest. Anyway, it's loud. I had a hard time conversing with my significant one.
Oh yes, one thing I wanted to add before ending this. When we arrived our reservation was lost in the system somewhere. I made the reservation through telephone a month in advance and they called me the day before arriving to confirm my reservation. When we got there, I wasn't in the system. Very strange but the hostess at the time was accommodating and put us on the list for the next table and it ended up being a 10 minute wait. Overall, it was a new, fun, worthwhile experience. Would I come back? Sure try something else. Definitely would like to get a picture with the Iron Chef next time when he's in. That would be cool. Now, for everything else. The environment I mentioned earlier, not too impressed but it definitely draws in quite the crowd. Good luck trying to get a seat at the bar. Service. Our server was nice when he was around but there's an army of people at Morimoto's. I don't know how many different people ended up serving our food and telling us about the dishes but there's too many people roaming around there. Cost, bring a days pay check, it'll cost you to try this place. If you're up for it, have some spare cash to burn, and maybe even want to try and see the Iron Chef stop by this place in Downtown Napa.
