Imoto takes freshness to an unparalleled  place with its clubby and convivial sushi bar.  Chef Jimmy and and the rest of the crew craft fresh wasabi, just-flown-in Japanese seafood and creative Pan-Asian cuisine into memorable, mouth-watering delights.  Standouts on this first of many future visits included a vibrant spring role with just a hint of umami-inducing duck, all served with a spicy peanut sauce. The baby snapper-- cured on kelp for 24 hours-- delivered a delectable, mildly sweet surprise. And Chef Jimmy's delicate relish concoction gave the Spanish Mackerel a palate cleansing perfection.

As usual the food was top notch; best sushi in Dallas. The service is impeccable. They cater to your ever need and remember from previous visits your preferences. Their attention to detail and customer service is unmatched and the food is even better.

Restaurant was overcrowded and understaffed. Poor waiters are so overworked there but they were very good. Two people working hostess stand and not helping. Music too loud. They need to lower their capacity and give they’re employees a break!

We celebrated my sons birthday there. He loves sushi Our server Leah made sure he had the nest time. She brought Japanese sodas for all the kids and brought him so nigiri to try different things. And of course the food was amazing as always.

When we first arrived the hostess station was empty and no staff even acknowledged us as they walked past. When the hostess arrived she was extremely curt, short, and seemed extremely bothered by our presence. Once we were seated we noticed the noise level was “club like” and made it difficult to carry on a conversation. Our waiter appeared to be over faced with several tables and he was unfortunately not knowledgeable on the menu. When we asked about certain items, he stated “I haven’t tried that” or “I’m not sure”.
We placed our order and were unimpressed with the food once it arrived. The food was extremely over sauced and was just not good. With sushi, we expect a level of freshness and we did not receive it. The pacing was terrible and our waiter came to the table twice in an hour we were there.
With so many better options for sushi in Dallas, we left and went to another restaurant to finish our date.

Avoid at all cost and try Uchi or Uchiba for good sushi.

Everything was great but the fruit flies. They were all over our wine and food. When we mentioned it to our waitress she apologized but didn’t offer to move us. Not a huge deal but the experience would have been perfect minus the fruit flies.

Food took over an HOUR to get out to our table and was honestly overpriced. They came around and said sorry twice during our visit. They brought out two of the same samples of a calamari dish because the kitchen was so backed up. Tuna was salty. Nothing tasted high end or impressive.

It was good. iMoto is always a good time. I wish they had the good beer, but I do understand they cannot get it right now because of a Wuhan Virus-related Japanese beer shortage. Once it's back in stock, iMoto will be back to five stars.

We had a 6:30 reservation for two and were seated on time. We ordered two rolls, some salmon sashimi and an order of satay. The satay had good flavor but was cold and one piece was so tough it was not edible and I had to finally spit it out. Of the two rolls we ordered only one of them ever showed up and we got tired of waiting for the second roll and had to finally track down our server so we could just pay out and leave. It was about 8:00 PM before we finally got out of there. We really did not order that much food, spent a full hour and a half waiting and never got all of it.
