At moto-i, there’s nothing we love more than serving our customers delicious Japanese food and sake that’s brewed right here on-site. We know that the past few months have been fraught with doubt and uncertainty, and as we move forward together as a community, we hope that we’re all able to find a bit of comfort and solace in whatever ways we can.

Over the recent weeks, as we’ve reopened for patio dining and takeout, we’ve worked hard to make sure that those who choose to dine with or order from us receive the same amazing food and quality of service they’ve come to expect from our team. If you’re going to dine with us this summer, here are a few things to keep in mind.

Outdoor Dining Only

As of this post, only our rooftop patio is open for in-person dining. You must make a reservation before arriving, and due to social distancing protocols, we can only accommodate groups of four or less. You can make a reservation through our OpenTable profile and we’ll make sure there’s a table waiting for you when you arrive.

When you get to our restaurant, you will be directed towards the elevator to reach the rooftop deck. Our staff will be using the stairs to come and go from the kitchen and the bar, and in order to socially distance properly, guests will not be allowed to use the stairs. We sanitize the elevator every 10 minutes, and only one group will be allowed in the elevator at one time. Rooftop dining is available from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday through Sunday.

Wear Your Mask!

Masks are required to be worn at all times when you are away from your table, and we ask that you keep your mask on as you’re entering or leaving moto-i. Our staff members will always have their masks on while serving customers, and we make sure that every employee washes their hands thoroughly and frequently.

Order Takeout or Delivery

If you’re still not comfortable with dining at a restaurant, we completely understand. Perhaps you’re not feeling well (which in that case, we ask that you please stay home), or you just don’t feel like cooking, we’re offering takeout and delivery. You can order and pay online and come pick up your food or have it delivered to your front door. Takeout hours are 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week, and delivery hours are 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Wednesday. Whichever you choose, you can enjoy the delicious options from our menu in the comfort of your own home!

We hope that with all that’s going on in the world, you’re able to take care of yourself and those around you. At moto-i, we want to do whatever we can to make sure our customers and community are safe, and we will continue to update our website as health guidelines and protocols change over the coming months.

We look forward to serving you soon.
