"We hadn't been to Moto-I for a few months. As always, there was a great mix of people having a great time. Our waiter was 'new' and fit in perfectly with the staff. He was attentive an tatted. The only minor criticism would be the Thai Fried Rice, which was a bit over soy sauced. Otherwise, we wondered why it had been so long since we'd visited!!"

"I recommend the Sake flight. Love the flavor variety. I also tried the Bibimbap and it was delicious! The appetizers and steamed buns are also great. The Ramen bowls weren't the best tasting however. My friend had a sake cocktail and was very pleased. It was very lively on Saturday night. The atmosphere is fun and lively. Come here if you're looking for a fun place to do dinner with your friends on a weekend."

"I was a little disappointed in the french fries-they have changed from sweet potato to regular, and they were also too peppery for me. They went out of their way to please me and offered another small plate to make up for it. The best service I have had in a while. I do always love Moto-i."

"I booked this reservation via restaurant week through Open Table. When we got there on Sunday, February 21st we were informed Moto-I was not participating in Restaurant Week until Monday, February 22nd. Did not appreciate as I would have gone to another restaurant that was honoring restaurant week. The server, Blake, was very inattentive and even appeared under the influence. The food wasn't too bad"

"I didn't mind the pierced, heavily tattooed waiters' looks, but I was disappointed with their poor service. Forgot our appetizers, mixed up our order, second round of beers never came, had to flag down another waiter to get our check as our waiter never returned. The four of us were there on Sunday, Valentine's Day and thought more of an effort would have been made. But several of the dishes were excellent. The bowls were delicious, hot and generous portions. The pork belly bites and cream cheese shisito peppers as starters were very tasty. The noise was at a level where we had to raise our voices to talk to each other in a booth. Overall, I won't return."

"Overall experience was alright. For some reason, my pork ramen wasn't as good as normal - just didn't quite hit the spot like it normally does but can't tell why. Probably flukey as this place is great. Steam buns were good, chicken had a nice kick."

"I am ashamed to admit that, although moto-i is long standing favorite of ours, we hadn't eaten there in probably over a year. What a mistake! But perhaps, sometimes you need to step back from something so that you can discover anew its wonderfulness.
First the sake is excellent! Even if you don't like sake normally, you must try. I'm not saying it's a given that you will be converted, but... My husband doesn't like sake in general, but loves the sake at moto-i. We like the Junmai Nama Genshu.
From our last visit, we had our old favorites... Bistro Steak, Thai Fried Rice & the JFC (Japanese Fried Chicken). Loved all three, but I have become obsessed thinking about the chicken & I'm sure we'll be returning within the month. Not sure what ingredients are involved to give it its crispy, slightly spicy, blackened crust, but it is unique and so DELICIOUS!
We sat at the bar & the bartender was friendly and helpful. I had us sample a few of the new sakes just to see if we preferred over our favorite. We didn't but so nice to try a few other options just in case!
Can't say enough about moto-i! Not only good food & drink, but always a great experience!"

"This place is a gem. As soon as you walk in, you feel swept away far from Minnesota in the most perfect way. Everything about this meal was great. We were impressed with the variety on the menu. The service was spot on. And we loved our meal. We had a couple stuffed buns as appetizers, ramen dishes as our main meal and enjoyed donuts and ice cream for dessert. Plus they make their own sake. I'm already recommending moto-i to friends."
