My favorite Japanese place in the Twin Cities. Such amazing flavors and execution. I have Japanese friends visiting who have been very impressed. Ambience and service are very nice but also friendly and down to earth.
We made a reservation for a party of 4, 3 of whom are in wheelchairs. My husband and I went early to give them a heads up to make sure we could find an accessible table. The manager and staff went above and beyond, moving a lower table into a more accessible space for us and ensuring all three chairs would fit with room to move. I would give them 10 stars if I could. The manager was more then accommodating to our mobility needs and the staff was attentive and on point the whole meal. The food is also phenomenal and reminded me of my grandmothers traditional cooking!
Went there for restaurant week and got the wagyu bulgogi ramen. Can't tell if it wagyu since it's soaked in the broth. However, it was flavorful and the side of panko fried poached eggs were excellent addition. The JFC wasn't unique enough for me to order it again. In house distilled sake was excellent. Overall lunch exceeded $100.
Best ramen in the Twin-Cities, hands down. I would also recommend the steamed buns.
I love Moto-I. It's an iconic location in Uptown Minneapolis. Great food, great drinks, great people. Check it out!
Always good. Music is one of my favorite pieces of the ambiance. Sake, A Bun, and Mushroom Ramen is always my go to.
Wonderful service. Delicious drinks and the food is always amazing.
Fantastic as always! Grateful to have such a gem in our community.
Wonderful food, drinks, and service!
Awesome place and all the food was amazing. I wish I could've tried every dish. Definitely will come back.
Always the best, waiter was great. The food is alway so good.
Wonderful atmosphere, delicious food that is fairly priced, excellent sake, great attentive service and CLEAN. I didn’t feel one ounce of anxiety about Covid or anything during my visit here. I was relaxed and happy!
My boyfriend and I had a good time here! We loved the vibe and the staff was friendly and fast. Food was good too!
Best ramen in the city. The staff is always great.
Moto-I is Awesome! And the leftovers are super the next day too! Bring back the Bistro Steak asap! Love that too! One of the best places to eat in the TC!
I enjoyed Moto-i for the first time at my boyfriend's recommendation. We came for noodles for our date from St. Cloud. Service was respectful and quick, we sat on the roof and had a great view of the downtown skyline, and my ramen was delicious (he enjoyed his dish too...I just don't remember what the name was!) Plus we both really appreciate the Covid-19 awareness, cleanliness, and protocol of the establishment. Thank you for a great experience!
The roof deck space was super cool! Loved the energy and the food was good.
One of the best and most unique places to eat in Uptown.
Happy overall. The music is too loud, this makes one speak louder, which not good during this pandemic
Mary was fantastic! Extremely attentive and kind. The yakiudon was to die for. And those Brussels sprouts were AMAZING.
Really good, quick service. Food is always outstanding. Highly recommend
Always great. Food is fantastic and they’re doing a great job with social distance measures. Would recommend.
Sublime venue. Practiced Covid etiquette very well.
Loved it as all was. Had a little too much scallions on my ramen but was still amazing
I’ve loved Moto since 2010. I haven’t been back for months. So good to have sake and ramen again! Thank you!
Great food, service and view from the rooftop patio.
moto-I is our favorite restaurant in the twin cities! Wonderful food, and they’ve done a lot to make sure customers and staff are safe during the pandemic
The staff are great at Moto I and the rooftop patio has a great view of downtown!
The ramen and drinks were fantastic. The hosts were very friendly and took the time to tell us about the history of the bar.
This is our absolute goto for ramen bowls, no questions
Moto-I is one of the best restaurants in the state!!!
Food was great, proper social distancing was allowed.
Superb food and excellent service especially in the time of pandemic.
This is one of my favorites in Minneapolis, the food, venue, and people are all amazing!
I really like Moto-I. The food is good and the food prices are reasonable. The drinks are a little spendy for the portion size. However the mixed cocktails are very tasty. Right now during the pandemic the service is a bit slow because of reduced staff.
Phenomenal food; everything was prepared exactly as it should be.
Rooftop was great, service was wonderful, food was delicious. They took precautions for social distancing. 10/10 would recommend.
Great food, amazing view, awesome service
The Wagyu Bulgogi Ramen special was so delicious I'm still thinking about it days later. Consider putting it on your menu--YUM! Thanks moto-i!
