    reserved at 9.30pm.for 8 and got sat at 10.20.( kitchen closes at 10.30) and believe me the food was the reflection of that hurry for closing > we wanted to go to another restaurant but at that time no one will receive us.( same situation happend one month ago in the same restaurant). We were almost the only ones in the restaurant and more depressing celebrating a b-day. porterhouse hard and overcooked also the rest of the beef choices. they offer appetizers and the cake but still that didnt make us happy...A question: ..if you dont cancel and/or no show they charge 25$ per person..what do you get if they dont respect your reservation and you still have to pay for a bad experience in all aspects ??.

    A very nice restaurant, with exceptional table service and a fine choice of entrees. Would definitely return and recommend it to others. The only minor fly in the evenings ointment occurred when the hostess insisted we leave the bar and go to our table 10mins earlier than scheduled. Our forth guest had just arrived and we had no time to socialize with her at the fine bar scene. No big deal but it's something that I'll remember.

    We stood at the front of the restaurant for at least 5 minutes before being greeted despite an abundance of waiters standing around. Took forever to get water or have our orders taken. Water was maybe refilled once after asking for it. Waiter accidentally poured coffee into my wife's purse. All that being said, the food was great. Really enjoyed the corned beef. Took forever to get our ticket. They did have live music which was unusual for a Sunday morning brunch and a little too loud for the space. Wanted to like it but didn't live up to the hype.

    First time to vist and will certainly return. My expectations were high, I was not let down! The setting was lovely but noisy. The menu is simple but offers quality beef, sea food and inovative sides. I loved the Wagyu Beef Dumplings. My Filet Mignon was delicious and seasoned to perfection. My boyfriend said the Lobster bisque was the best he has ever had! He order the Prime Dry Aged Rib Eye which he loved. The waiter served him a Delmonico by accident which was quickly corrected. The Lobster Mac and Cheese was disappointing. Bland and dry. My only complaint was that our server was curt and condescending. I will return for a second visit but if service does not improve I won't return for a third. Delicious meal with disappointing service.

    We went for my husband's birthday. Two positives: the bread and the wagyu dumplings were great. The bad: He ordered the porterhouse and they served him a steak that had gone bad. I think because we are young they thought we wouldnt know any better. I expect that at an Applebees but at a nice restaurant, for almost $60, they should not have served that. They replaced it and appologized giving some crazy excuse about a sous chef but did not offer to comp anything from the bill. I had the halibut special and it was dry and without flavor. I would say stick to the steak but that didn't go so well either. It's sad because we had heard great things and we were excited to go. Take your money elsewhere.

    Everything we ordered was good, but didn't stack up compared to some of the steak houses in NYC. For the price, I would say not worth it. Several of our steaks were overcooked, and when you are paying $50 for a steak, that just shouldn't happen. Waiter was great. Also, ambiance was Boston old money (which was probably to be expected in Beacon Hill) . Not my cup of tea, but it might be yours.

    We were given a gift card to Mooo and enjoyed a truly superb experience in every way. It is definitely worth the money to get the combination of high quality food, warm, cozy atmosphere, and expert service for a special occasion. The bar is also a great place to enjoy a cocktail and a reasonable bar menu. We would return!!!

    This is a great spot for a business breakfast -- quiet and centrally-located. The service was really excellent. I met there recently with a business associate and he also remarked what a great spot it was for a meeting. I have already booked my next breakfast meeting there. My only criticism -- and it's a small one- is that it's a little dimly lit at breakfast -- the lighting is geared more, I assume, to the evening crowd. Thank you!

    Nothing is wrong with Mooo exactly except the prices which are absolutely shocking. $ 235 for two people, no booze, including tip. I do feel fleeced when charged $ 20 for a bottle of San Pellegrino mineral water. Did I mention shocking? Salads are fine if predictable. The steak is good but did not melt in my mouth; the taste was pleasant but at $ 50 I expected an explosion on my buds. It is indeed served plain on a white plate, dramatic for its simplicity, but lacking in side courses which, naturally, are extra. Sorry, but when entrees are $ 50 I expect ecstasy or at least a fan dance or something from the waitron. They enter a new stratosphere with prices this high and simply don't deliver the goods for this price-point.

    Our experience at Mooo was decent. Food was good (not outstanding as I expected); did not like where we were seated as it was near bar. There were plenty of other seating options as we arrived on the early side for dinner. My fault for not requesting another table towards the back of the restaurant. Our waitress was very attentive; however, I forget her name.

    Food was great, service too. But my husband ordered a gin/tonic and my son ordered a sprite. My son (12 yrs old) was given the gin/tonic. He took a large sip. When the 2nd gin/tonic and sprite were brought, we checked the "sprite" and for the second time the alcohol was given to my son. We told the waiter after the 2nd time. Not sure if it was a bartender error or server error.

    I went to 4 restaurants for Dine Out Boston, and although this one was the only lunch, it was the best of the bunch. Even better, they will be continuing the prix fix $25 for 3 courses indefinitely, so you all have a chance to go. The cold corn chowder was smooth delicious, with adequate crab and a refreshing mint drizzle. The 10 oz steak was cooked perfectly, melt in your mouth. Only area of some disappointment was the dessert. The shortcake (of otherwise yummy strawberry shortcake was dry and unappealing. So thumbs up and we shall be returning!
