    Totally feel that passion from the food served. Front line staff requires a lot of training in order to justify the price paid. Food is delicious.

    We had a group of 15 and was comfortable seated in one long table. The food was great and service prompt. We would definitely come back again.

  • What a lovely little restaurant!!!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 4/6/2014
    What a lovely little restaurant!!! We were the only group in there so it was very quiet but the room had a nice feel to it It was bright and very clean. We were a little disappointed that the daily special (foie gras) had sold out but we found other dishes that made us happy. The pork belly and the octopus salad appetizers were amazing. Most of us had pasta for our mains and they were enjoyable. The staff were friendly and attentive. We would definitely go back!

  • A hidden gem in Richmond

    If you spend a lot of time in Richmond some time it is difficult to find a good restaurant that isn't of an Asian theme. These two talented chef's have combined their talents and offer a great alternative. Presentation, portions and flavour are all very good (and I am sure will continue to improve with time). Give it a try.

  • MoMa Contemporary Bistro doesn't

    Dined on 2/15/2014
    MoMa Contemporary Bistro doesn't look like much as you approach it as it has the appearance of a business park storefront. Once inside, the atmosphere is very pleasant with a modern decor, about 12 tables and a clear view of the hard work in the kitchen. The servers were prompt and polite, covering each others tables so you were never unattended for long. My wife had the duck breast which was beautifully presented, very flavorful, perhaps a tad chewy, but she enjoyed it very much. I had the Sable fish which was perfectly cooked and the cabbage and corn side was different and tasty. If you like a drink, try the gin Collins. Two entrees, a cocktail, two glasses of wine and a soft drink, 20% tip were about $95 in total. We liked it.

    absolutely poor/no parking; signs were erected on another address/premises; the waitress while pleasant had no idea about cuisine and how to serve; we were NOT offer any condiments or black peppers for my duck dish; after 15 minutes cheese cake still did not come; we cancelled it bottom line - the 2 chefs should have a proper manager to run the place; a big disappointments for us who drove miles to the place

  • Very nice evening

    we found this restaurant on Opentable and it sounded nice for our Christmas Eve dinner. We were not disappointed. The food was lovely,. They had a four course menu, which was perfect. The food was delicious, and, as I had let them know that one of our party had a shellfish allergy they replaced the prawn sauce on the butternut squash ravioli (which was divine!) with trout. The service was excellent, but not intrusive, and we had a really nice evening. If I lived in Richmond I would definitely go often. Next time I'm in town overnight I would certainly return.

    We have eaten at most of the top rated restaurants in Vancouver and MoMa to be at the top of them all. The dishes were creative and the best fusion we have had in town. Our hats off to these two creative and talented young chefs. We will be returning often.
