Our daughter and her husband had dinnner there a few weeks ago and really enjoyed themselves. The food was very good and service outstanding. Menu was somewhat limited but several specials were available. Glasses were never empty and the food arrived hot. My wife had a cosmo and I tried two new IPA's. Both were excellent. I liked the idea that they offered mostly microbrews. Would have liked to seen a draft beer to two.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMMoros was great!The food was delicious..perfectly cooked and service was great as well...5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved the small platesWe loved the small plates - we were able to try several different dishes and share them around the table. And everything was delicious!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday DinnerI took my husband here for his birthday and we had a great time. The food was amazing and the service was great. I put a note on the reservation I made with Open Table that it was my husband's birthday. We were so full that we didn't order dessert but the waiter brought out a scoop of vanilla ice cream on a birthday plate with the candle. It was a really nice touch. We'll definitely recommend Moro to friends and family.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe thoroughly enjoyed ourWe thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Moro. We ate off of the Restaurant week menu and it was a difficult decision as to what to pick...all the selections looked delicious. And what we ordered was wonderful. Would definately go back there4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service,Excellent food and service, but portions were small, so have a snack before go.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Food!Consistently great food and one of the best restaurants in Delaware. Extensive wine list, great menu full of creative cuisine and a trendy ambiance.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMCity Restaurant Week menuCity Restaurant Week menu was good. Hanger Steak was tasty but came out warm, not hot, and needed more seasoning and salt. Roasted tomato soup was delicious. The rib eye is outstanding.Note: do not try to use your groupons with a promo menu such as city restaurant week. They do not allow it.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe visited Moro for Wilmington'sWe visited Moro for Wilmington's restaurant week. It was our first time at the restaurant,but it certainly won't be our last! Portions are on the small side but that's okay with me (although my husband had a snack when we got home). Everything we ordered was delicious. The menu has a nice range of small plates and large plates and the wine list was impressive. I would definitely recommend Moro and plan to return soon.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI was there for City RestaurantI was there for City Restaurant week and it was my first time at Moro. The special menu was excellent, and the food, presentation and service were great. I looked at the regular food and wine menus and Moro has a mix of large and small plates for sharing, a great mixed drink list using Blood Orange as the theme, and a challenging 'who knows what' four or five course dinner that the chef selects (and for the adventuresome). Was most pleased and will return.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMRestaurant WeekEnjoyed restaurant week dinner with friends. We all agreed the menu selection was great and the added wine pairing was a welcome bonus! Food was excellent. Beginning of evening with waiter was a little awkward as one of our guests wanted to send a message to the chef to be sure the scallops were cooked "well". The waiter insisted the chef would cook them properly when all he needed to say was of course we will be sure to let the chef know of your preference. As it turned out, they were cooked properly but our firend remarked how easy it would have been in the beginning. All four of us are in the restaurant business so we are very critical with attention to detail in service. Having said that it was a wonderful evening!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother excellent meal. WithoutAnother excellent meal. Without question the best restaurant in Northern Delaware.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOnce again amazing. TastingOnce again amazing. Tasting menu with wine pairing simply the best we have ever enjoyed. We were even given an extra suprise for our anniversary. Well worth it and our go to for special occasions.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI love this place. The bestI love this place. The best restaurant in Delaware.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional dining experiencWe thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Moro. Food was exceptional as well as the service.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMLate weeknight dinner for twoA great find in the City of Wilmington, Italian cheese board and beet/goat cheese salad were amazing, disliked the truffle fries. Overall great service and delicious food, perfect for a romantic evening or to impress a special guest.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb dinner. Halibut cookedSuperb dinner. Halibut cooked to perfection. Creative chef works wonders. My husband's lamb shank was "to die for."4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMexpensive but good.We like Moro, but since it is quite expensive, go only with a Groupon. All (3) of us liked what we ordered. My duck confit salad (I substituted sherry vinaigrette for their preferred dressing) and my small dish scallops with squash were out-of-this-world- fabulous. My supposedly "lumpcrab" small dish was mediocre--would not recommend it. It was a crab spread with no lumps in sight. No discernible shell, but this is hardly high praise.
The dessert was good--we shared the banana creme thing. I think their desserts should aim more for old-fashioned and delicious and less for cutesy or pseudo elegant. For instance a plain old delicious bread pudding would be nice to find.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMthis was our second trip tothis was our second trip to moro and it's becoming our new favorite spot. always enjoy the inventive menu and try to be adventurous in our choices. however, next time i'm going to be sure to inquire about just how hot (spicy) each dish is and be sure to ask chef to hold the salt. btw, my sister's huge steak was amazing!!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMDefinitely a Special Place to DineOur group loved the seating arrangement at a circular booth/table. Very good for conversation and sharing. THe braised lamb shank special was delicious, very tender and nicely presented. We enjoyed sharing several small dishes prior to our entrees. This is a beautiful restaurant with friendly but professional service and amazing food choices. We will definitely enjoy returning.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely loved it! Can'tAbsolutely loved it!

Neat looking restaurant.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMBest in the regionMoro simply put is the best restaurant by far in the Wilmington/Chaddsford area. The ingredients are supremely fresh, inventively presented and compare well with many New York casual eateries. The restuarant has also recently redone their wine list. A maked improvement.
Bravo!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a lovely evening!Ambiance, service (Matt)food, all very, very good. This was a special event for us but we'll definately be going back!3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was the second time I'veThis was the second time I've been to Moro and I feel even more in love with it. It is quiet and quaint. Perfect spot for a date night. The food is to die for, and i couldn't have been happier with my service.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst timers. It was not busyFirst timers. It was not busy so it was quiet. Great service and food. True test will be when it is busy. Is service as good and how noisy is it. But it is a great find. Entry way is a little challenging since it is a converted house with doors opening over the steps. Surprised that has not been rectified. Accident waiting to happen.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMoro is always a fantasticMoro is always a fantastic dining experience and we often recommend it to people.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time diningThis was our first time dining at Moro. It came highly recommended and now I know why. All of the staff were extremely professional and very helpful. I was really impressed that they took our coats and insisted on helping us put them back on! The menu choices were excellent and all of the specials sounded amazing - I wish we could have ordered one of each! The portion sizes were also nice - definitely smaller than chain restaurants but you weren't left hungry. The only thing that I would recommend be changed is the lighting - it was a little hard to see the menu and you couldn't really see your food in detail to appreciate it. Overall, it was fantastic and we plan on returning. I definitely recommend it!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMChange is a Good ThingWe have been coming to Moro for more than 15 years. It keeps changing and we continue to find the changes interesting and exciting to explore. The most recent change (surprise!) is to shift the focus to the currently fashionable small plates/large plates format. They do it well and avoid calling it tapas which it is not. We each had three small plates and shared a desert. Each of these seven items was interesting, tasty, innovative and worthy of ordering again. This is a very high score! The service was friendly, timely and professional. If you have not been, GO. If you have not been in a while, it's worth trying again.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful dining experienceA wonderful dining experience but needs greater parking accomodations.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGood array of selections,Good array of selections, from small plates to entrees, fowl, meat or fish...wines by the glass!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious! We decided to eatDelicious! We decided to eat tapas-style, ordering several small plates to share among the three of us. Great variety, perfect preparation, amazing flavors, and even some exotic (for Delaware) choices for the adventurous. Don't miss the crispy brie, the veal meatball, or the roasted cauliflower!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMBoth times me and my fianceBoth times me and my fiance have been there, its has been phenomonal. From the friendly & bubbly host to the waiter who was on point.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingThe food was top notch!! and the service too!!

Loved the atmosphere - feels very city chic. Perfect for a romantic date or catching up with friends. I would encourage a meal at Moro any time! Whether it is a few small plates in the bar area or a cozy booth - Moro is a treat!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMoro was wonderful as always.Moro was wonderful as always. We actually made an early reservation this time (for 5 pm) and ventured out with our very quiet 2 month old son. Now normally I would discourage people from bringing their young children out to any nicer restaurant, but our baby sleeps all thetime. I hoped the restaurant would be accommodating and they were. The food was excellent as it always is. My husband ordered a steak special which was cooked perfectly and I ordered my favorite dish there - the salmon. Our waiter was friendly and attentive without being intrusive and the atmosphere was great. It was rather quiet when we arrived at 5 but was definitely getting more lively when we left a few hours later. I would highly recommend Moro to everyone.2/20/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a wonderful meal. BurrataHad a wonderful meal. Burrata with tomatoes followed by very tender short ribs and creamed broccoli rabe. Just perfect!1/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
