Asian
Imoto (little sister) is Buccan's version of an Izakaya. The Japanese Izakaya's were traditionally down-to-earth gathering places to go get a drink and something to eat after work. Imoto Room is an extension of Buccan's small plate - big flavor concept with Japanese and other Asian influence. The menu offers items ranging from innovative sushi & sashimi to Clay Conley's interpretations of other Asian favorites.

    disappointing. did not live up to its reputation. overpriced for what you get. pieces of sashimi and nigiri very small - less then half the size of what i get anywhere else. nothing unusual. i won’t be back.

    Food, apart from duck tacos, has gone downhill. Sushi is middling at best, and service is very slow. Not worth its hype and reputation at the moment.

    First timer. Blew me away. Love the space. It’s small but is designed so well that you can converse with ease. The staff (yes you get them all servicing you) is super friendly, there when you need or want them and very knowledgeable. The food is simply spectacular. I could go on and on on the food but you should just trust what everyone is saying. If cost is a thing, we all guessed the bill and were over by $100 on our guess. My point is, you might think this place is more than it is. I will definitely be back many times.

    Our favorite place to come when we are in palm beach. My 13 year old son always begs to go to Imoto. We love to sit and watch the amazing chefs make all the dishes at the sushi bar. Everything is unique and delicious and we have a little bit of everything - some of our favorites are the sliders, the wagyu, lobster dumplings and the tuna poke appetizer on delicious crisps! Then of course we top it off with some delicious desserts (the warm chocolate chip cookies with salt! Yum!) from next door at Buccan. Always a favorite and will always return. Staff is friendly knowledgeable and the atmosphere is chill.

    It was our first experience at Imoto and we enjoyed everything about it. Our waitress was wonderful. Our food was delectable and the ambience was very nice. The waitress helped us with selections from the menu and we each had two cocktails so the price was a little more than we had expected, but we enjoyed it so much we would come back.

    This was our second visit to Imoto, our first visit was in 2020 right before the pandemic began. The food was still as delicious as we remembered - high quality cuts of fish and other ingredients. We loved the lobster potstickers, seaweed salad, and various pieces of nigiri and sashimi. We visited on Saturday night so just be warned the place can get crowded and energetic on weekends.

    Made reservations in advance & were seated promptly. Ordered mocktails while perusing the menu. So tempting , we ordered 3 appetizers to start & continued eating right down the menu! Each plate or bite was fresh, creative & delicious The bill was representative of our delicious meal but not overly- our service person was lovely & was very informative regarding menu items & quantities. Valet service was efficient & polite Great evening-will do again!

    Went for an anniversary dinner and service and food were excellent. Started with Hamachi and Snapper crudos, then Wagyu Beef and Duck Tacos, followed by Yellowtail and Seared Yellowtail Nigiris, all of which were served to perfection. Cocktail and Sake Soto were great accompaniments. A perfect anniversary dinner!
