Pretty Good for Wilmington, Which Generally Sucks

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... read 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.

Fresh sushi with lots of options. Good selection of full meals. Service is good, ambience is contemporary. Only drawback is that the place is sooo noisy.

I'll start by saying that I have visited some very highly rated sushi restaurants in major cities, and I believe Mikimotos compares favorably to all of them. Chef Al and his well-trained kitchen staff consistently serve fresh and delectable dishes that are imaginatively conceived and stylishly presented. The 2 for 1 happy hour special is an excellent way to introduce... More

I travel to Wilmington for business and was out looking for dinner around 9pm. I was the only person at the bar ordering and there were two bartenders. One asked me for my order, then came back a few minutes later and asked me again as if we'd never spoken. Between both of them both my water and my beer... More

Wilmington, DE and sushi are not normally used in the same sentence when talking about great meals... it is however, the best you are going to find in the area and though you are not in San Francisco or Seattle, it's generally very good - though definitely overpriced - I have also found that the quality can vary, depending on...

I've been here many times over the years, both for lunch and dinner. I went with a co-worker. We shared the Veggie Tempura - soggy and very greasy. Also - the waitress couldn't tell us what the veggies were - one was indistinguishable. The dips that came with them were good - although the one was supposed to be a... More

We had a great dinner and time at this sushi restaurant. Waitstaff was great.. We experienced no up selling as noted by previous reviewer. We were not rushed which meant a lot to us since we were visiting with our daughter. Appetizers included calamari, cowboy yakatori and lobster dumplings...all of which were well prepared and delicious. Sushi was fresh and... More
