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.

We went to dinner to celebrate our anniversary. Although they were aware, they did not do anything special, which was a bit disappointing. However, the food here never disappoints.

We decided to try the Flavor menu. I started with the eggplant appetizer, which was creative, delicious, and filling. My husband had the seared tuna bowl, which was excellent. We both had sushi rolls, which were also fresh and very good - a huge amount of food! The spicy tuna had a kick to it - nice! We added on to the Flavor choices, the duck tacos, which we absolutely loved! The Moshi ice cream balls for dessert were refreshing.

Definitely recommend this place and we will return. The noise level is really the only problem.

We love everything about this wonderful restaurant. Desiree, Cassandra, Powell always welcome us and know what we want. They are the best. And the food is outstanding. When we come to Florida at the beginning of the season we always go here first. Now that we have moved here permanently it will be a pleasure to be here often.

Probably the worst dining experience ever... My husband and I went for dinner - trying a new restaurant and taking advantage of Flavor Palm Beach. We were seated immediately, got drinks, ordered appetizers, enjoyed appetizers... and then waited, and waited for over 30 minutes. All the while, my husbands sushi dinner sat on the counter, and sat, unrefridgerated for 30 minutes. When my entree arrived, he was served too. He refused to eat it. And my entree... old and very fishy tasting salmon, inedible. A total disappointment. We had been hoping to finally find decent sushi, something incredibly difficult to find in the Palm Beach area. We continue to search.

The food was tasty, but should have been served hot. Overall the place was quite loud inside (perhaps due to drunkards next to us). The waitress was very nice and tried hard, but the restaurant seems understaffed overall. They are very concerned about pouring water though. So concerned, a waiter poured my drink while simultaneously holding the dinner of someone in our party up in the air instead of actually serving it.

Almost perfect
Someone insisted on sitting on banquet with his companion in a space for one.
and it felt like he was sitting in my lap.
It was very uncomfortable for all of us!
Disappointed

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.
