My friend and I had a great evening. The bartenders and staff were very attentive. You can tell they enjoyed working there. The drinks were great... especially the Pineapple Express. The Lobester shooters were amazing and the sushi was great. Definitely will go back!

Outstanding Dinner!
First time in Dallas, we picked the restaurant without recommendation and the food was delicious. The restaurant is very nice, the ambiance too. I definitely recommend this place.

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.

Had a great time and a great meal. Noticed Chef/Owner Kent Rathbun walking through. He came up to the table and spoke to my partner and I. He was so nice. And that made the evening even better.

Ask for Leah, every time! She is amazing and always does everything in her power to make sure her guests have the most enjoyable experience at Imoto… she’s half the reason we keep going back (and then there’s the food)! Last night was my first time not having her as my server, and it just wasn’t the same! Go Chef Rathbun for creating an awesome concept, and go Leah for being such a great ambassador for the concept/brand.

Quite frankly, not good. Food is mediocre at best, generally over fried. The environment is the real killer… you can hardly hear yourself think. This is not an experience that I would return for.

I've been to Imoto before and had a wonderful experience, but this time is very disappointing. I'm convinced we had the newest waitress to join the staff as she was slow and somewhat forgetful. Thankfully there was another waitress working in the same area, otherwise, we could still be there.

So much of a restaurants draw comes down to how you leave feeling, you want to relax and just feel taken care of. I’ve always loved Imoto, but Leah has turned it into a staple for me, I truly feel like I’m catching up with an old friend when she serves us. Pair amazing service with amazing food and you have Imoto!
The Little Sisters Korean Fried Chicken is a homerun, recently had a friend visiting from out of town and they agreed it was the best thing they ate in Dallas!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

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!
