We went here for a birthday dinner this past Saturday and unfortunately it ended up being a nightmare. Although the food was decent, the service was horrendous. We had a group of 9 (albeit a larger group, but nothing unmanageable) and our server would take a single person's order and immediately dart off. Then we wouldn't see him for another 15-20 mins (no exaggeration). Then he forgot half of our entree orders and I received mine so late (an hour after I ordered) that I had to take it to go. Trying to waive down the other servers/helpers didn't help either. We asked for a manager and never ended up talking to one. The icing on the cake was that our server still got his 20% gratuity because of our party size. A true kick in the shins. I usually do not take time our of my day to write a negative review even if the experience is subpar, but this restaurant is just simply not worth the money.

Overall I really enjoyed my experience at Imoto. I made a reservation for 9:30pm but was able to get in at the bar at 8pm. The bartender was a guy named “Duce” and he was very knowledgeable regarding the menu and had a great personality. The food was good although the serving size of the fish proportioned to the rice was lacking.
The noise level was deafening and I found it very difficult to carry on a conversation with the person next to me. The survey prior to me writing this review should have a 5th choice regarding the noise level and label it “Distracting and Annoying”
I would happily return to Imoto if I was alone and not expecting to communicate with anyone.

Everything was amazing!!!! I love coming to Imoto! Such great ambiance and the drinks and food are wonderful. I literally try to go at least twice a month especially because they have amazing waiters and bartenders. Especially Sergio!!!! He is so personable and cares about making everyone’s experience enjoyable. Having Sergio right in the front when people walk in also adds to the amazing atmosphere because you can tell he is good at what he does and loves it. He also makes the best drinks ever!!!! I’ve dined at a lot of places but I have to give super thumbs up to this one. I usually don’t leave reviews but my experiences there have been incredible and I think that everyone should see for yourself!

Food was great but we waited 20 minutes to order drinks and 40 minutes to order food. The table behind us ordered twice before we could order once. We’ve been here before and always had a great experience so that’s why we were patient. Obviously the place was operating at 100% capacity but had not staffed it for 100% capacity.

Been there a few times lately and the service is SLOW. Love the staff, there are just not enough of them. The hostess Emily is adorable. Lee, best waitress in town. She helped our waiter who was totally slammed.
The food is impeccable. Delicious. The staff is terrific, just not near enough of them.

It was the worst service. When we spoke to a manager, they told us that they were sorry, would do complimentary drinks, that didn’t happen, we re-ordered drinks, was brought half -glass of our original drinks. We had more drinks than food. They ran out of everything. The manager said they didn’t know they were going to be THAT busy. Said he didn’t staff properly, and then even when we ordered, they took the order but things never came to the table. When we asked for our bill she told us that the items we didn’t get were removed because they ran out... only then was that communicated. Very sad.

I have never left a really bad restaurant review, but I have to for this place. The service was awful. Our waiter completely ignored us, and when we spoke to the manager he was unhelpful and patronizing. We left two hours after our reservation time having never received our entrees. I went here for my 25th birthday because I was so excited to try it and it was so disappointing.

My boyfriend and I visited Imoto for our belated Valentine’s Day dinner & it was great! We really enjoyed the food and atmosphere, but the service was okay. It took forever for our waiter to come get our food order, but it looked like they were understaffed, so we aren’t making a negative judgment off of that. Once we were able to order, though, our food & drinks came quickly and were SO good. We’ll definitely be coming back!

The food was great. The ambiance was great. For the most part the service was great. However, at the end of my meal, I had a bit of salmon left on my plate and my server took it away. I thought he was going to box it like he had my other plate but I was wrong. I was greatly saddened by this. Greatly.

This was an entertainment experience not just a dining experience. From the walk up appeal and the beautiful entry door to the fun lighting and most delicious food, we enjoyed every moment.

We even stopped at the bar on our way out we were having such a good time. It had a great vibe and we didn’t want the evening to end.

Excellent dining experience. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Our server, Richard was one of the best servers we have had in any Dallas restaurant. A true professional. He was very knowledgeable about the menu and provided us great table service keeping our table very neat and clean during our courses and made sure our water glasses were always filled. Those details did not go unnoticed and were very much appreciated. All in all, another 10 out of 10 dining experience at Imoto.
