Great sushi in Wilmington? Yes!

Travel to Wilmington often, finally my sushi craving got the best of me and I gave Mikimotos a try. It was all delicious including my martini of Japanese Rice Vodka, some type of fruit puree and toped with a sparkling saki. I'd go back for that alone!

The best sushi in Delaware. I have been searching for good sushi since I moved to Delaware and this it. The best thing is they even have to go with the full menu available Well worth the visit.

We used to go to this restaurant frequently, sometimes weekly, as a couple or with other friends. But the last several times we were there it was a big disappointment and we ended up walking out without ordering. On several occasions, on Saturday evenings, they had no white wine! Really? A busy restaurant is out of white wine on several... More

The food was good... More

Food is excellent. Service at bar is to be desired. I had the bento box. If someone is not "into" sushi, I recommend the bento box. They gave you a variety of different foods. They meal taste was tasty. My friends had sushi, which they "loved". They say if you want to eat sushi, Mikimotos is the place. The service... More

So this is a relativity review. Mikimotos is a really good option for Wilmington, primarily because Wilmington is a dining Hell where there are very few edible options. I have been here seven or eight times and can say that the sushi is good if you are careful, the drinks are mediocre at best, and the Paella is a real... More

I went last night and the new bar tender kept putting her hands on the top of people's drinks. I sat at the bar but I would not order a drink because of her. The sushi was good the spring rolls and horrible, and they serve them with mustard. .

Overall the menu was well done. Food was prepared exceptionally well, menu is diverse, but the service was slow and the lunch pricing is more in line with dinner... service was very slow and not very attentive

Went in to Mikimotos for lunch and the waitstaff were all too busy on their cell phones to provide proper service. I like this place and usually go in for happy hour but I felt like I needed to text them my order to get anything. Two thumbs down. I will rethink before my next visit.
