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.

Visiting from out of town. Staff was accommodating with adjusting our reservation. Food was outstanding. Tuna slider was unbelievable in addition to the duck tacos. Compared to this the regular rolls were a bit underwhelming

Had a fantastic meal here. I’m pregnant and the waitress rec’d a delicious lychee mocktail. My husband was very happy with his dirty martini. We got the seaweed salad, lobster potstickers, Peking duck tacos, pork belly fried rice, bone in sirloin, and bread pudding. Seaweed salad was delicious but overpriced. Potstickers were tasty but wouldn’t get again. Everything else was a must have. Excellent service!

One of the best sushi meals I’ve ever had. Sat at the sushi bar and watched the chef and team make beautiful rolls. Staff were incredibly friendly and knowledgeable about the menu- gave great suggestions! The super salmon roll was incredible.

This restaurant is much quieter than next door's Buccan.

The food is superb. Highlights of our meal: Peking Duck Tacos; Eel Nigiri with foie gras, and yuzu kosho; and classic Uni. All of these were superb.

Service was attentive but not overbearing.

Imo knows they have issues. We loved our first visit, the last two have had serious service issues. The food took forever, was often cool or cold and the wait was more than 20 minutes between items. Our waitress was lovely and we were told that Tuesday and Wednesdays are a problem so if we ever go back, we will avoid those days. I do think they are working on the problem and getting service staff is difficult right now I just think they could do more to make all of the issues more palatable. I am never looking for anything for free but we had cold food the last two times and they took it back and redid it and not only did it take forever but they never took any of it off the bill or offered a free dessert or anything. They always apologize but it is not inexpensive and it definitely was not something we would want to repeat. We also love Buccan and have never had any issues so this is an interesting dynamic.

Excellent service from Grace and she was extremely helpful with suggestions on the menu. The jalapeño Margaritas were the best I've ever had. Ask for Ashely's special blend.....you won't be disappointed. My absolute favourite restaurant in Florida and the Buccan Sandwich Shop around the corner makes the best Hot Italian sandwich I've ever had!

Everything about IMoto is top notch. Our server Grace was delightful. She was patient and helpful with our menu questions and referred us to the sommelier when it was time to decide on the perfect wine for our meal. The food was incredible, the presentation, impeccable and the overall experience was memorable.

Food and drink at Imoto are always fantastic. Noise level was a bit louder than previous visits, but may have just been the evening. Service was attentive without being overbearing and added to the experience. Wallet took a hit, but you know what you’re signing up for when you walk in the door which is really no different than anyplace on the island.
