Reservations were hard to get and I think we got ours at 9 pm on a Saturday. The restaurant is still busy and we were brought to the bar as our table was not yet ready. They have a huge bar and a good selection of cocktails as far as I remember. Fresh fruits and juice were used. And of course, they also have a great selection of wines right from the Napa region!
|I always enjoy watching chefs working in an open kitchen|
|I still remember I got a glass GH Mumm at a good price!|
I hope I get to visit the winery again. It's a lovely place.
We were finally seated and the area feels open and tastefully decorated. Yet, it's also unlike what you would normally expect in a more traditional Japanese restaurant.
As it was getting late, we didn't get the omakase (bad for digestion) and ordered a la carte instead.
|Really enjoyed this. Perfect balance of sweet and sour.|
If I remembered correctly, we were given one each as a palate cleaner.
I told our server we really like this and he brought a few more for us.
|Hamachi (Yellowtail) Tatare|
The presentation is lovely but there was just too little yellowtail.
There was more sauce compared to the tartare...
I still like Morimoto a lot and would return for their omakase. However, I don't think the a la carte made an impression on me.
