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.

Grace was our amazing server for the 2nd night in a row. We had the wagyu beef with the cucumber salad. Of course we had to get the duck tacos again and spicy tuna roll. Everything was outstanding and I would highly recommend Imoto.

Everything was great service and environment was good. Inside was small and reminded me of a nyc restaurant, tables were very close and noise was loud because of that. The food was DELICIOUS and very great quality. Even though i read the menu before the food experience reminded me of an asian style tapas. I wish they could explain that before getting started but it was great either way and loved it

The tables are a bit small but we were able to manage. The sashimi is the freshest and best I have had in Palm Beach County. The rolls are imaginative without falling into the “over done too much sauce American style” roll. The hamachi Kama is superior. We ordered hand rolls and they would have been very good if the chef had taken the extra step to roast/crisp the nori. As it was presented, it was a typical argument between my teeth and my hand as I wrestled with the rubbery- not crisp nori exterior. Skip the hand roll and I highly recommend

The food at Imoto was outstanding Friday night. We started with the Tuna Tartar which my wife and I order all over the country. This was by far the best we have ever tasted. We ordered the Tuna Crisp which comes from the sister restaurant adjacent (Buccan) excellent as well. Next was the yellow tail and salmon that melted in your mouth. Next up was eel that was fresh and delicious. On to the cooked food we had the popcorn shrimp which was good. The next dish I highly recommend was the NY strip with miso and mushrooms. Followed by an ice cream sandwich for dessert. The service and food were amazing.

Great night❤️

I would go back in a heartbeat. Food and service was excellent. The only thing bothersome was the bartenders did not have their hair tied back or up. They had very long hair and I actually saw their hair brush the top of some of the drinks they were making. Not sure how they get away with this. All the servers hair was up.

Imoto was perfect. Both our cook foods - asparagus & mushrooms - as well as all of our sushi - especially yummy hamachi appetizer- were all very fresh. The atmosphere is fun and younger for Palm Beach. Our server Powell was friendly and quick. A great night.

Interesting drink and food menu, almost perfect preparation of every item on the menu, wonderful service, and a moderate noise level make this our favorite restaurant in Palm Beach. If you like a traditional, formulaic menu, this is not for you. It is difficult to pick our favorites, because there are so many on the menu. The one disappointing item is the Korean beef. While the sauce is delicious , the meat is tough and chewy.

There is an expectation of excellent service when you pay Imoto/Buccan prices. My service experience on 4/8/19 was so bad it dragged down the whole dinning experience. Not only was our waiter slow and uninterested in us there was no manager to be found with which to raise the issue with. I will not recommend nor contemplate returning any time soon.

We sat right at the Sushi Bar, just watching the Chefs work was entertaining. Those guys were working non stop and some of their technichs for cutting the Fish and the Vegetables was really interesting. So we were already pretty happy just hanging out and having some saki. Then the Chefs starting handing us some of the Plates we ordered, they all looked like something out of a magazine and taste was incredible. Honestly the best Sushi we ever had.. This place is a 10!

Sushi is mediocre. Sushi "chefs" basically are of the short-order variety, with no true expertise, in the preparation. Seaweed mushy, salmon skin not properly prepared, edamame has a sweet, gooey sauce on it. Basically a trendy spot, catering to folks who've never had true sushi, prepared by real sushi chefs.

Actually switched to Buccan that night because my table was not ready at Imoto. The manager let a couple in with a dog. He asked if it had papers but never asked TO SEE the papers. It was one of those suspicious "service dogs". Anyway, we had a good meal at Buccan and ALEX was a very fine server. I would ask for him again. We tried 2 new dishes, the lobster pasta, and the warm Brussel spouts. They added a few new desserts. This restaurant never disappoints.
