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.

This is one of my favorite spots in Palm Beach. The food is good, consistent, nice sake selections and always fun people watching.

I was kept waiting, which I did not appreciate, that is not typical of them. It seemed to be especially busy. The hostess was lovely. Our server was not too good and one of the dishes the Duck Tacos were just room temperature. She did not seem to know the right sauce for them. I have been there 3 prior times and we had a different sauce for dipping which was thick and a bit sweet. She served us a vinegar tasting soy. There is not a consistency with this place. Buccan is always perfection and the dishes ordered taste the same each time. The spare ribs were hot and excellent. The licorice ice cream was not as good as a week before and it had ice pieces in it.

The food was amazing and had a lively crowd both at the bar and the dinning area
Service was not as good as usual , waited 30 minutes for our first drinks after ordering . Did not get much better from there .Food was brought out by bus boys and the presentation was non existent.
Seemed to be missing the female manager that usually has the staff on track . Please please please get her back as it will improve the service immensely.

Our new favorite restaurant! Absolutely fabulous! We were there to celebrate a birthday. We ordered 7 different small plates. The duck tacos, tuna foi grass slider, cauliflower dishes were superb. The desserts were out of this world and service is extraordinary. Very noisy and high priced but worth it!

Most of the time it's difficult to hold a conversation without yelling, and the vast majority of the time it's women who feeling screaming is cool.......but the food makes up for the short-comings!

Sushi quality poor. Tough fish. Soggy, tough seaweed. Fish portion minuscule. Service lousy.
Noisy, with loud, obnoxious customers screaming at the sushi bar. Bartender did nothing about it, except promote the behavior.

I simply would not recommend this place but only for one reason-food. It is mediocre at best. Quite embarrassing for Palm Beach. I had better sushi in a simple place in NC then in fancy PB. And, for far less.

Fabulous all-time fave. Turned regular night out into a special date because of the food and ambience. Asian fusion food absolutely fabulous. Not cheap but in keeping with Palm Beach prices. Worth it.

Imoto has decent sushi. The place has a good vibe and is one of the few places in Palm Beach where there are actually young people hanging out. Courses came out way too fast and there wasn't much time in-between. The noise level is extremely loud and its hard to hear one another's conversations. We'd probably go back, but not soon.

A bit too pricey and ambiance was aided by dim lights. Had lights been turned up it may look like a strip mall restaurant. Service was fine, not particularly good. Food was excellent. Prices were insane. $15 for a California roll is absurd - even stone crab filled.

This was our first time. Superb! The duck tacos, rock shrimp, edamame, Spareribs all perfection. The bread pudding was a perfect dessert. It is very intimate and much better for a conversation. I dine very often at Buccan, so now I can switch off and dine here.

Overall Imoto is good. Maybe we were expecting more based on the hype. Sushi was fresh and tasty but not the most “creative” or “best” which is the reputation. We would have appreciated more guidance with the menu as first timers. Watch out for the kimchi in the fried rice if you don’t love spicey hot. Found ourselves helping the table next to us as they were struggling to find dishes for a non fish eating friend in the group while the sever was standing there. There are non fish options that are tasty. Duck tacos and ribs are just a couple. And don’t miss the edamame. It’s a delicious twist. Much as I wanted to be blown away, I found myself happy with the meal but a little disappointed in the experience. I’ll stick with Buccan.
