Diner Reviews
  • "We were there on a Saturday evening and it was mostly empty. Not sure why - the food was delicious and the atmosphere quiet and cozy. Thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience and will definitely return. "

  • "It's a small place so not great for groups. We had a reservation for 7pm but one of us was running late and they were okay with moving the reservation to 7:30. They have a good selection of wines which went well with the food. We had the meat and cheese platter for appetizers and the classic Italian meatball and spaghetti which was so good and so worth the calories. The waitress/bartender was very attentive. The place is good for dates or quiet dinners with a few friends. "

  • "Went here based on the Reviews, but found it MUCH too small and loud, not particularly attractive and with food only slightly above average. Service was outstanding, but unfortunately could not make up for everything else. It was so bad that we went somewhere else for dessert and coffee."

  • "MoMo is certainly a neighborhood gem. This quaint and cozy corner kitchen is the perfect place for a date, a relaxing girls night, or a quiet night out with a small group of friends. I love the Eggplant Parmigiana and of course all of the wine options. The MoMo staff is attentive and pricing is very reasonable. Enjoy!"

  • "Intimate, small and perfect for our Saturday night dinner. Kept us waiting for our 8pm reservation, which was expected upon walking in to see only 4 tables set up (they're likely set up for several 2-tops or only 3 or 4 large parties.) Didn't matter to us, we sat at the bar and the bartender treated us to drinks which was extremely nice of her. Great service overall throughout the evening and the food was great! Appetizers large enough for the 4 of us to share and a nice wine list. Great spot, great location on a corner in the west village, so good views of the neighborhood, just make a reservation since it's so tiny!"

  • "Some nice dishes on the smallish menu. Very small space and very good pasta."

  • "A real gem. Small & intimate. So many restaurants in the Village, but not many that are as warm, intimate and welcoming. Very good food, limited menu, beer and wine only."

  • "Dinner for two was an absolute treat. Tiny little restaurant in the Village, cozy, intimate setting (maybe seats 20+). Takes you back to the old days. Great pasta - best spaghetti and meat balls I've had in quite awhile! Ample salads, and priced just right. Service was very attentive. Overall a very satisfying dinner experience and I will definitely return when next in the Village."

  • "Went to celebrate my birthday with my family. Love the location-heart of the west village. Very cozy inside, very small..Food was EXCELLENT! Had a bunch of appetizers for table to start and everything was yummy. Then everyone had something different and all was delicious. Service was uneven-started out weird. we didn't like our table, so we asked to have the other empty table for 5 people. they seemed annoyed, but we switched anyway and were much happier. once we settled in, they were friendlier. A little lax on filling water glasses, etc, but then were really sweet when it came to my birthday dessert.. Seemed almost like they were short handed, because i read there are two men owners, but only saw two young girls the whole time.."

  • "I had dinner here with a friend from out of town and we enjoyed it immensely! Everything from the service, food, wine to the atmosphere was perfect. The cheese & meat platter was delish and the argentine skirt steak was tender and tasty."

  • "My wife and I absolutely loved MoMo. After a few mins we couldn't help but feeling right at home. The shrimp avocado bruschetta was to die for as was the sea bass. What a fun time. Will definitely be coming back."

  • "I chose this little place for valentines day and it was a major hit. The food was great, as was the service and especially the ambiance. The tiny interior and low lighting was perfect for the occasion. I would definitely go back."

  • "My boyfriend and I absolutely love MoMo's! It was our Valentine's dinner spot last year and we were more than excited to return - it is just a cozy and warm as we remembered. Definitely won't wait a year to return again."

  • "Food and drinks were both good. Service was mostly good, if not a bit slow and non-responsive once the orders were taken. For example, I had to get up and go to the bar to get my water filled and get a napkin. The venue is small but very nice. Great atmosphere. The food was good overall - nothing wrong with it and in line with similar places. Not out of the world, but would definitely try their mushroom pasta again. Wine was really good, but they change a lot and they dont always have whats on the menu."

  • "Skip the pasta (spaghetti a little tasteless and meatballs a little dry; lasagna salty) order from the app menu (shrimp avocado bruschetta is amazing) and have a glass on wine. Super cute small place with a nice vibe."

  • "This was my first visit to Mo Mo West Village. I must say that I was quite surprised to find such a small restaurant. I'm sure the lack of space is a problem on many occasions. However, we were very comfortable and enjoyed our evening. Of course, it was a Monday evening and we had an early reservation (6:15 p.m.). The food was excellent. We had a very nice waitress who recommended some of the courses to us which we thoroughly enjoyed."

  • "I went to MoMo to celebrate my birthday with four friends. The staff was so kind and accommodating, they really made us feel special. The waitress found out we were celebrating and gave us a candle lit dessert on the house! The food was delicious, especially the shrimp bruschetta. The atmosphere was very warm and cozy. The champagne cocktails were great, as was the wine selection. Everyone agreed we have to go back soon."

  • "Of the 9 tables for two we probably got the least appealing one (at the bar on the trek to and from the kitchen and the restrooms) but we still enjoyed the atmosphere and the food a lot. We will return in the spring and make sure to reserve a table at the windows to allow for people watching - great corner views for that."

  • "I was walking through Greenwich Village with four other people (one child), and we were looking for somewhere to eat. We stumbled upon the restaurant and decided to check it out. We are so happy that we did because we had a fabulous evening. We all truly enjoyed the food - every item from the sea bass to the fettucini to the beet salad was delicious. Matt was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. The cozy setting was also lovely, and we look forward to coming back on our next visit to NYC. I would absolutely recommend the restaurant to friends and family."

  • "MoMo is small and romantic, fitting in well with the neighborhood. Service was terrific as were our meals. Very reasonably priced wine and cocktail list. Bonus was their keeping their a la carte menu for New Years Eve and the glasses of champagne they gave to patrons to toast at midnight. Will definitely be back!"

  • "What can I say about my restaurant :) -- this place is a hidden gem -- tucked away in the village, it's food, wine, ambiance and the people who work here are 5-stars all the ay around. It's a great place for a date, a birthday or just a dinner alone - at the bar with the wonderful staff. Thank you Matt, Alex and Andrej for yet another wonderful evening in NYC."

  • "I can't believe I've walked by this place 1,000 times and never really considered going in. I'm so glad I did! There was almost no one in there and I was a little worried; however, now I know this is my new secret kitchen. Amazing food!!!!!!!! Amazing value!!!!!!!! Very relaxed and we ended up having a few drinks with the owner and bartender afterwards. Very chill! (even if it turned very late...haha)."

  • "Walking into Momo you feel as though you've stumbled upon a secret place that few know about. We had an intimate dining experience I would definitely recommend to a couple looking for a romantic place to eat great food by candlelight. Service was excellent, incredibly friendly and attentive. I only wish I lived closer so I could return to Momo on a more regular basis. Those living in the neighborhood are lucky to have it."

  • "After the rave reviews I received from some colleagues, I decided MoMo might be the perfect place to meet with some old friends for dinner and drinks. We sat and chatted for hours, and the service was extremely friendly and attentive throughout. Not to mention the food was incredible, definitely one of the best authentic italian meals I've had in a long time. I highly recommend this cozy wine bar for anyone looking to relax and enjoy some good food with family or friends- new or old :)."

  • "We were the only ones in the restaurant. The food was really good, but the waitstaff is too busy talking to their friends at the bar to wait on us."

  • "We didn't realise that MoMo was THAT small but it is. This adds to the cosiness. We settled at the bar for a pre-dinner drink and I knew immediately I liked MoMo. The service was great and attententive, and although food is nothing fancy it was good wholesome food with a slight twist. Will definately go back - not really good for groups."

  • "Momo is a great littls spot on one of the prettiest corners in the West Village. The menu and wine list are both very short, but what they have is both good and affordable. The only problem is the noise level, which is almost unpleasantly loud as some diners virtually shout at one another in this small room that is all hard surfaces."
