The menu features Tokyo straight style ramen noodles, rice bowls, rotating specials and asian inspired street food paired perfectly with house brewed sake.

Had great food and cocktails. Service was mostly well-paced but there were some lags. However just about the time I was wondering where our next food was, it would appear. Maybe I’ve been overly conditioned by restaurants that rush everything out.
awesome service from our waitress and delicious food. I'm gonna go back.
Food and drinks were very good! The only thing I would say is that our waitress took some time coming back and forth from the table but I can understand since it’s a Saturday night and we had a party of 9
Unfassbar gutes Ramen, eigens hergestellter Sake, gute Craft Beer Auswahl. Ambiente ist alternativ / hip, allerdings sehr dunkel - man sollte definitiv nicht hin, wenn man noch Jetlag hat, das geht auf die Müdigkeit. Ansonsten top Tipp für einen ungezwungenen Abend mit guter japanischer Küche und alternativem Flair.
Excellent food and ambience. The Classic Ramen was delicious, loved the smoked pork shoulder! Will be coming back for more! The Sake was amazing.
My son decided he wanted to try this restaurant for his birthday. The food was delish, services was professional and the environment was quiet. We will be back!
The food was absolutely delicious and our waiter was very nice!
The drunken noodle lacked the usual flavor associated with the dish and had no spice to speak of.
Hadn't been there in quite a few years...it was soooo good!
We were seated very quickly and out server was quick to our table. Once our order was in, however, she seemed to forget about us. We saw three different people. One took our order, one delivered the food and one delivered the drinks. We had to send one entree back. It was listed as spicy but was very very sweet. We didn't get checked on at all, our drinks stood empty long enough that we left and went to a bar for more.
we sat on the roof and enjoyed the food, service,and flicking pennies at the deranged street fodder. it was amazing.
Food was super average
First time to Moto-i. Loved it. We sat on the main level in a quiet booth. Candle lit ambiance. The food was fresh and inventive. Asian with a modern flare. Service was good, and we had a great time. They invited us to check out the outdoor patio, and after checking it out, we thought we would sit up there for a different approach next time. We will definitely be back!
The food was delicious! The service was good and our servers were attentive.
Great Ramen and a wonderful atmosphere! Will for sure be back again soon!
Great food, large portions, nice server, and delicious mocktails. Only downfalls were it being so dark we had to use our phones to read the menu clearly and a couple food items were out of stock. Will for sure go back again and maybe try the rooftop.
We did not ear there. The upper level outside dining area was closed so we left disappointed.
I made a reservation and even though there were open tables on the patio they sat at a ledge hanging over the edge of the roof patio basically looking at another building with people just rammed in there, eating of the ledge like a food truck. The food was nothing special at all and the service was the kind where the servers are just tolerating the people who are there. The decor was cartoonish to the point of cultural appropriation.
Moto-I is a perennial favorite. I brought guests from Tokyo and they thought it was delicious and memorable.
Service was a little slow, but not terrible. The little electronic pad thing they use now was kind of bogus and kept acting up. But the food was DELICIOUS and we got a lot of food for what we spent!! We will definitely be back.
Food came out slow and service was mediocre. Been there many times and this may have been the worst experience I’ve had there. Hopefully a onetime thing
We love moto-i. The food is amazing and a must taste of Minneapolis
The restaurant was fine food-wise, but SO HOT. Uncomfortable for us and for the wait staff.
It was so much fun to find a place that serves food late till 1:30 AM and that too super yum food.The roof top is a dream love to sit n just dream away time.Wonderful and happy staff.This place rocks
Their selection of sake is great and the rooftop and is awesome place to hang out for pre party drinks. The buns are fantastic
Everything was fabulous. Great customer service from the minute we walked through the door
Way to dark. It was even hard to see the person next to you let alone the menu. Food was good, but I had the Duck ramen that had no duck in it. Also we had to wave down the servers way to often. Lucky the company I had was what made the experience better.
Took an hour for them to make our ramen. They should’ve told us it would’ve taken that long so we would’ve been able to decide whether or not we wanted to wait. Instead, they’d just say it’d be soon. In the end, the classic ramen and the duck ramen that we ordered tasted alright, but weren’t worth an hour’s wait. I thought that the pricing and portion were okay, but I preferred the taste of the ramen from Icchido ramen, which was also a little bit cheaper and much faster.
Nice sake list. Decent ramen.
Good food slow service. Took an hour to get the appetizer out.
Great patio and views but the food was over priced and just okay. Wouldn’t go out of my way to eat here again.
It was great food and wonderful service I will be eating here again
Loved this place. If we ever come back to Minneapolis, we will definitely be going back to here. Food and ambiance was great. They brew their own sake and its delicious.
The food, sake, and service here is top notch! It's a little dark, and a little loud, but so incredibly worth it. Highly recommend!
The fried pork bites and classic ramen are amazing!!!
Love the food and service at Moto-i! I have been several times and plan to go back frequently. I recommend the bistro steak for those who just aren't sure if they will like the traditional Japanese ramen. If you are looking for an appetizer, I would recommend the pork steam buns.
The brussel sprouts are amazing and perfect for my vegetarian daughter so are the tofu options. The miso soup is very good but be warned, a bit on the spicy side so are the chicken steamed buns.
They only downside I can think if is the small tables they have for parties of one or two people shoved in the corner. Honestly, those tables need to just be a booth. So if it is just you or you and a friend, just sit at the bar.
Impressed by everything. Server was great, knowledge about sake was great, food was better than expected. We will be back.
Attentive and friendly staff, excellent apps and entre. Will return!
Happy hour was fantastic, would definitely return!
