This strip-mall restaurant in Punta Gorda serves food that would be perfectly at home in San Francisco, New York or, well, Tokyo. The sushi has always been of the highest quality and freshness. I love hamachi and have never had better. Tempura is also so much better than much of what you get at other regional Japanese restaurants. It's light,... More

Everything is prepared once ordered, so don't expect a quick meal. That said, the sushi is exquisite. Well prepared, fresh, and creatively presented. It's a small restaurant and reservations are recommended in season.

I almost don't want to write a review because I don't want to give away one of PG's secrets. This place has fantastic sushi! Very small restaurant, quiet relaxing vibe, and delicious food. It will take some time to get your food because everything is hand rolled by one man to order, but it's worth the wait. Definitely check it... More

Do you love sushi and/or authentic Japanese cuisine? Than look no further! Amimotos owners are actually from Japan and it shows in how delicious the food is. I have eating Sushi my whole life and this is hands down the best I've ever had. I have been coming here for over 5 years now and the quality is consistent. I... More

Great sushi is hard to find in SWFL and Amimoto does not disappoint. We are from San Francisco and are picky about our sushi. We have never had a less than exceptional meal here. The fish is as fresh as possible and delicious. The preparation is creative and presented in a wonderful fashion.

An Amimoto Christmas is a must, especially on Bill's birthday! They must take an entire day to set up this Christmas village, and we were lucky enough to sit right next to the animated section. Took me a while to realize, though, that the tiny "ho ho ho's" that we kept hearing came from the Santa in the hot-air balloon.... More

This is a family-owned small restaurant in a traditional setting. It is a great setting for couples and is by no means a singles joint like the popular Fort Myers sushi bars. The food is excellent and prepared by the owner. The menu has a great selection of the usual choices. They do have daily specials which have always been... More

We are regulars here! The serene atmosphere is perfect after a long work week. The staff are welcoming and the sushi is wonderful! This is not fast food - so plan ro relax and unwind as your meal is being artfully prepared!

Wow, I was searching the internet for a new sushi place because ours closed down and I came across Amimoto's. It is about a 30 minute drive from us but well worth it. Sushi was delicious, wasabi had a little extra kick compared to most wasabi's I have had. The staff was very friendly and the price was soo reasonable.... More
