Diner Reviews
  • "MoMo's was uncrowded, and that contributed to a lot of attention from the wait staff when we were there; however, they didn't smother us. Food was very good, though the menu they published varied significantly from their offerings the night we went. While as expansive and varied, it wasn't the same, and their reasoning was fresh ingredients drive dish availability, which we were OK with. If we lived in Shandon we'd probably be regulars; but this was worth the drive from Sumter, and we enjoyed the food and the informal atmosphere."

  • ""I love the relaxed feel of this place.I was not impressed with the service or food, after reading all the great reviews. I had to ask for silverware after food was brought out. Food portions were good size with a good presentation, but with no flovor. Shrimp and grits was like eating a bowl of shrimp and raw onions.""

  • "Had never been in Columbia before, nor Fort Jackson. Was surprised to find this caliber of restaurant. The menu was fit for foodies, but we hit it around closing (even though OT showed the ability to reserve 30 mins past when we arrived at 9) so the kitchen over cooked the filet and it was delayed in getting out our food. It looked like a neighborhood hotspot for the local business community and the behavior of the clientele made you feel like and outsider. Not in a rude way, but as if you'd walked into a block party. It had the ambiance of fine dining, but the live (loud) music by the trio diminished that. Nevertheless, the food WAS very good."

  • "My girlfriend and I dined at MoMo's for Valentines Day. We arrived there a hour before our reservation time, but they had a table available so we were able to get an early start. The place looked real nice and I liked the fact that they had soul music from the 60s and 70s playing. I waitress was very professional, helpful, and courteous. The food was delicious! I had the rib-eye and its one of the best steaks I have ever tasted. I highly recommend this place for special occasions, because the food is pricey but worth it."

  • "Not sure what took us so long to go to MoMos. A definite return. The food was outstanding and the presentation was superb. Ambiance just right and they had a large private party that could be seen but not heard. Wine selections were first class and a fully stocked bar. Could ask for more."

  • "This was my first time at MoMo's but it certainly won't be my last! We initially went because the Restaurant week menu was enticing, however, once there I chose to eat from the menu. The small plates are great! Especially if you like a variety or simply can't choose! I had the lamb chop and spare ribs. The ribs were so tender they fell apart with a fork and the lamb chop was cooked to a beautiful temperature and stuffed with a delicious chorizo. The rabbit entrée from the Restaurant Week menu was equally delicious. We will definitely include MoMo's in our dinner plans in the future."

  • "The service was great! A friend and I had heard about the restaurant week and this was the restaurant that caught our attention I was so empress with the chief detail on the food. The internet picture doesn't due justice.The food was seasoned just perfect. I will recommend this restaurant to anyone I know. Thank you for a great dinner."

  • "Food was great. I had the Oso Bucco and it was out of this world. Everyone else in the party said their choices were good as well. The service was a little spotty, not bad but just not great. I attribute this to it being an off night. Overall, a very nice experience and I'll go back again."

  • "We had a delightful evening with friends. The service was very attentive. Good wine recomendation. Food was great and served at just the right pace. We were not overly indulged by the wait staff but had just the right amount of attention to enjoy our meal. We will frequent this retaurant on a regular basis; the prices we in keeping with most fine dinining establishments."

  • "The menu is hard to understand with all the fancy French language but our waiter was very well informed to explain what everything meant. I ordered the shrimp, crab and lobster salad which was just one clump of salad( resembled tuna salad ) on top of a small slice of bread . I was not paying $15 for that. I sent it back for the crab cakes entree with garlic mashed potatoes and bacon wrapped asparagus. Me and two of my companions order this same thing and we enjoyed it. My other two companions are VERY picky, plain eaters who don't like to try anything new, if that is you, DON'T come to this restaurant. Don't order the sweet tea, my friend sent hers back it was terrible and not sweet at all. We all just drink water."

  • "The menu shown on open table was not the current menu. I had a filet and it was perfectly cooked but the meat was tough. Staff was friendly"
    Dined on 11/18/2013
  • "Food and service was excellent. I had the beef short ribs as appetizer and osso bucco for main entrée. Both were delicious, but should have made a "lighter selection for one of them, as I had more than I could eat. Reasonably priced food and wine selections. Wife had excellent comments on her fried green tomatoes for appetizer and stuff quail for main entrée."

  • "First time at MoMo's was not pleasant. We were seated at a 3 top directly in front of live music (they were actually quite good) when other and better tables were available. Our table was not assigned to a waitstaff and service was poor. Food was "fine". Will give them one more shot, perhaps for brunch sometime, when we might get more attention. Too bad, I had high hopes this was a "neighborhood gem" like Diane's. :("

  • "I made a reservation for 10.25 for my brothers birthday and I was extremely impressed. I go to fine dining all over the place and this place was really a great Columbia restaurant. I was impressed with the food, staff, and atmosphere. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for great food. I haven't had such an all around enjoyable dining restaurant in Columbia in quite sometime but there is nothing negative to say about MoMo's Bistro. I will definitely send recommendations your way!!"
