First, we sat down, and waited... and waited... and waited... neither the hostess who sat us nor anyone else appeared to notice that no one came around to offer drinks or even to simply say, "I'll be right with you." We, finally, had to ask the sushi chef if it was a buffet restaurant or is someone coming to check... More

I've been a long-time fan of Mikimotos but lately have not been satisfied with the food. It's either no flavor or just missing a key ingredient - LOVE. This place is not the cheapest option out here so when I come, its a treat and I need it to be good! The sushi is typically on point, but lately the... More

The food here is great. The service, not so much. We waited 15 minutes before someone even came to the table to ask us for something to drink. It does seem to be getting a tad better, but still very slow. If you do go, try the California roll, its fantastic!

I typically get the Spicy Tuna Roll and the Hairy Mexican, which are both addicting! We enjoy going here for a special treat since its a bit on the higher end. Nice atmosphere and good service always.

I enjoyed a great meal here with a business colleague. Fancy drinks, tasty appetizers and excellent rolls. Check! Check! Check! On top of all of this, the server was friendly and timely. It's not a super cheap date, but it is worth it to get top quality product delivered with a smile.

We've been dining here for many years and ever since Johnny left Jasmine to open his own place in Pennsylvania, we only get sushi here when we want it locally. They usually have fresh uni, which is not easy to find around Wilmington NAND they often have interesting specials. This is the only local Jaoanese restaurant where I have had... More

Favorite Japanese in DE. Unlike most other places, it has great vibrant crowd and a full bar. AC is usually up pretty high, so you may want to bring a jacket or sweater.

Working in and around Wilmington for many years I've heard Mikimotos mentioned often as a good place to eat. My travels in the Wilmington area never gave me a reason to be in the neighborhood where Mikimotos is located, near Wilmington hospital . One Saturday afternoon I made a point to have lunch at Mikimotos. Maybe Saturday afternoon is a... More

We went to celebrate a birthday. We are kind of new to the Sushi type restaurant. We lucked out because our server Annalyn, was very patient with us. She explained dishes when we had questions and was very knowledgeable. The best part, she wasn't pushy or on top of our table, so it made the experience very relaxing. I had... More
