    The ambience is aesthetically pleasing and creative. We were particularly impressed by the superb service and timing, with helpful explanations. The food was particularly impressive and well-presented. We can enthusiastically recommend Momiji !

    We dine at this restaurant quite often and always have an excellent experience. This visit was terrible! Our server was in an obvious bad mood, and was very short with us. She would ask if we needed anything and immediately turn around and walk away before we could answer. She forgot our sauces we ordered. I could understand if it was busy but we arrived at 4pm and there were only two other parties there.

    Was a bit disappointed in this place I've wanted to try for a while. We were in the far back room, and it was REALLY loud, so this probably impacts how I rated everything. However, it WAS a very good value, and if I can come back and try some additional things in the front room (where the entire ambience seems completely different), the rating could improve. As for food, mostly pretty good, but not memorable. They were out of both the Hamachi and Kanpachi Kama, so the waitress suggested the Halibut Cheeks, which were just OK, a bit dry and garnished with an odd mix of what seemed like apple chunks and marinated mushrooms...and with the breading didn't feel like an Asian dish a all. The Agedashi Dofu was good, and generously portioned, and the fish on the sushi was excellent, except for the "Ivory Salmon" which has a dryness, flavor and texture more like Saba than Salmon, stick to the salmon. The sushi rice itself was a bit generic...I like a bit more vinegar to come through (if it was in there at all?). The KuroButa Kakuni was fantastic, with an excellent broth and a couple of grilled Shisitos to make a nice contrast. Service was slow, but I don't really care to make an issue out of it anymore anywhere as it is impossible to tell if they are just as understaffed as everyone else or otherwise...the staff that was there was working hard and doing their best!

    Never disappoints. Every Roll I have tried I have loved. The selection is fresh, and the atmosphere is lively but you can still carry on a conversation. It's just a comfortable spot to meet friends. All the staff is so nice and attentive. We love Momiji

    Food was really subpar. The oil used for Frying tempura is reused oil. Cold Food such as veggie sushi etc. was as if they had been taken out directly from fridge.

    Momiji continues to be one of my favorite sushi spots in Seattle. Both their SLU and Capitol Hill locations never disappoint, the service is great and the Sushi is amazing! I only wish they would remove the 1.5hour table limit for small parties, though usually they very nice about it.

    I was super offended when our server told us we needed to leave in 9 minutes. Basically, they don’t want parties to stay longer than 90 min. That’s the policy. I met my friends for a girls night dinner. We hadn’t seen each other in 6 months and it was a time for good food, connection, and catching up with friends. Little did I know that we would literally be asked to leave when 90 min was up. This would be a tragedy in places like Europe. The food was delicious but I will not be going back as I was so offended by the policy. They care more about money, over satisfied patrons who enjoyed being with their friends with the benefit of good food. So annoyed.

    The food (soft-shell crab, sushi, sashimi) was excellent, as were the staff. Due to a stiff breeze, we requested a different table and we were promptly moved to a table that was out of the wind.

    First time in Seattle visiting for a birthday, decided to celebrate here for dinner. Great food, but extremely poor service. Our server was rude and sarcastic. Waited about 30 min for a to-go box and the check after having to asking for it.

    Reliably excellent sushi. The flat-iron steak is also very good. The restaurant is very loud no matter where you sit, which you may interpret as great energy or just an impediment to conversation, depending.
