The ramen is amazing, some of the best in the nation!

Food is just adequate, not bad but not remarkable; but the sake flight is amazing, and so fun to learn about all the different kinds of sake, and what distinguishes them, and taste the different (each delicious) flavors.

I found out I really don't like sake, no matter who makes it!

We had a wonderful time. I did wish we could have been on the rooftop though. The food was great and the sake was fun. I liked that we could try such a variety with the flights.

I really think Moto-i is great. It's a shame that they aren't busier.

Love the chalk board info on the sake...wish more of that information was on the menu given that the chalkboard is had to read from many of the booths.

We waited a while for someone to seat us, but other than that the food, drink, service and environment were great.

Top notch service every time I've been to moto-i. Fresh local taps, fresh brewed sake on location, shuffleboard, beautiful rooftop patio, great specials and two well done bars on two separate levels. Apparently, they also have a full Dish TV package. Usually have some sports, Food Network and Japanese TV on downstairs, but you could request to watch just about anything!

From Our Editors

moto-i gives diners an authentic Japanese culinary experience without requiring that they leave uptown Minneapolis. Unpasteurized draft sake is brewed inside the izakaya-influenced bar and restaurant; onsite production keeps this staple libation fresh and free of jet lag. Executive chef Omar forges Asian-fusion dishes that meld flavors such as whole fish served with handmade pickles and abura ramen peppered with smoked pork shoulder. Instead of airing football games and soccer matches, the restaurant’s TVs run live and pre-recorded sumo wrestling bouts simulcast from Japan, proving to diners that sports aren’t required by international law to include a ball.
