Morimoto's contemporary Japanese menu infuses traditional dishes with Western ingredients and preparation techniques. His seasonal and ever-changing selection of raw fish preparations will feature the freshest seafood available as well as locally grown fruits and vegetables from supporting farmers. Morimoto's signature offerings include Toro Tartare, presented in a shallow wooden tray with condiments including crème fraîche, wasabi, avocado, nori paste, chives, crispy rice, and dashi-soy. Tuna Pizza made with raw tuna, anchovy aioli, and jalapeno; Morimoto Sashimi, a terrine of seared Toro, smoked salmon, barbequed eel, tuna and Hamachi served with five different sauces in pipettes.

"My husband and I were excited to try the omakase tasting menu($120 each) with wine/sake pairings ($90 each). Some of the dishes were very tasty, others were extremely underwhelming, our surf in turf was inedible. Several dishes were served without any utensils because the service staff were too busy and the food runners seemed not to notice. Our server was polite and obviously knows how to execute, but was so busy her check backs were barely audible as she passed by, hindered further by the absolute roar in the restaurant. Also, the wine pairings are extremely over priced! Sonoma cutrer? Really? Aside from feeling that far too much was spent on a so-so meal, morimoto is simply too busy to execute a tasting menu properly."
