Wow wow wow
What a great find.
Having been there a few times now, I'm really enjoying not just the authenticity of the Japanese dishes, the sushi and sashimi, but also the innovation into some of the other dishes. The hot dishes are spectacular. And, in all honesty, having eaten regularly in Tokyo, I can say that their sushi and sashimi is subtle, genuine, un-Americanised (sorry - no cream cheese) and high, high quality.
The mood of the restaurant is fun, energetic and stylish. It's small (a wise choice) and the tables have very little privacy, but given the environment and the reason for being there, that's cool.
Great, great food and fun times.

All I can say is WOW!
Wow! I went to Imotto expecting some good sushi rolls - boy was I wrong! The food was amazing! I had not even heard of half of the things we ordered but took the suggestions of our server. We chose 6-7 items. The dishes were brought out one by one so the table never became over crowded and we could savor each individual item and all of the complex flavors. I waited for a long time to be able to get a reservation but it was definitely worth the wait - my experience was amazing in every way!

The food is terrific- definitely order the Peking duck tacos and tuna and foie gras sliders. The warm mushrooms were delicious as well. Creative cocktails capped off a fun dining experience.

Perfect Small Bites
From service to food, all was perfect. It is very small, so reservations are an absolutely must. But if you find yourself craving first rate sushi at the last minute, give the sushi bar a try. It seems like there are often seats available there.

Great food....great experience!!!
Took my wife here for our anniversary. Very friendly and attentative staff. We were greated with "Happy Anniversary" wishes the moment we walked in. We were asked if we can move one table over within minutes to accommodate a larger group. This was not a problem for us at all and we were treated to an awesome Tuna Sashimi on the house. Very nice of them. Small little place compared to its big brother Buccan but food is as good. If you go have the edamame with the addicting soy glaze, duck tacos, and Tuna Fois Gras sliders. They' have rolls on the menu but i'd recommend getting the small plates instead. We had their Rainbow Roll. It was good but not as awesome as everytging else. I will be going back to Imoto.

Some interesting variations on sushi type food. Some too tricky. Regular sushi and sashimi fresh, but very expensive (Palm Beach prices). Cooked food had some good choices , but again pricey. Upscale crowd seemed to be having a good time. Would go back and try some more new things. Short ribs for example, even @ $30. Focus was on sushi for us this evening and no reason to give up on our regular haunt.

Great spot, awesome food. Small and quiet enviorment with still a nice bar scene. Located next to buccan which is always great for drinks after. Fun spot for friends and a great date spot as well

Another delicious meal!
After loving our dinner at Buccan our first night of vacation, we couldn't resist Imoto. Yet again we were impressed with our meal. Our waiter was extremely helpful in explaining and even showing us some of the dishes on the menu before we ordered. We decided to do a few of the small dishes on the menu to share. It was just my date and I but we wanted to try it all! We started with edamame with the soy glaze. We also got the lobster and shrimp salad in a coconut. Very nice presentation and tasty! We then shared the duck tacos, tuna sliders, and grilled octopus. All had a taste we hadn't had before! Dishes are quite small so we left satisfied from these. Very exotic and fresh flavors are found at Imoto, it is a must in Palm Beach!

Always delicious. Edamame- yum. Crispy Peking Duck- the best. Lovely private environment.

Unique spot in the area.
Not many great sushi spots around. We've been going to Echo for years, and the change was welcome. Imoto is a real treasure. Sushi menu is delicious and creative. We will be coming back again and again. Modern setting with intimate feel. Could be a great spot for a small group, or date nights.

Finally a good Japanese
Lovely sushi and other small bites prepared by chef Taiki. All the sashimi/ sushi dishes was fresh and delicious. This is the only Japanese worth going to in the area. Chef's omakase menu (chef's choice) recommended. You can ask them to stop bringing dishes when you are full. Loved it and I will be back soon.

Designer Sushi and Asian creations
Consistently Great. Rates with the national best like Nobu and Koi.

good sushi at a high price
portions were small and pricey for what you got but very good. you are paying for being part of the palm beach scene

Wow, just like it's sister restaurant Buccan, it will blow you away. The drinks were superb (we highly recommend El Diablo made with passion fruit, soooo good...) The sushi was excellent and the duck tacos to die for. The burger was so fresh and gourmetish I could actually crave it, and I've never been big on burgers. Can't wait to go back :-)

Like going around the corner where the noise level is low and the service is great.

Excellent upscale sushi
Very pleasantly surprised to find quality of sushi excellent, along with very good service and an engaging, hip atmosphere. Felt younger and trendier than other palm beach restaurants. Beats many other local sushi spots for quality. Have strongly recommended to several friends already. Prices are about the same as other sushi places. We will alternate between here and Sushi Bon in Lantana which has been our longtime favorite. Recommend the scallop and sea eel nigiri, duck tacos, choc chip cookie for dessert but it was all good.

A excellent addition to a town that was sorely lacking in sushi. The menu is compact, original, and does not pander; there is very little in the way of mayo or deep-fried sushi. Loved everything I ate, and enjoyed the influence of Buccãn, the big sister next door, on the menu.
