  • "We were very disappointed with the atmosphere. The seats of the booth we were in were torn and ragged. Waitresses looked like they worked at sleezy bar instead of what is supposed to be an upscale restaurant. One had a black tank top low cut dress with her bra straps showing in the back. VERY TACKY! Waitresses mainly worked the outdoors but some came in to chat with customers. Waiters had classy uniforms: white shirt, tie, white coat. Service from the waiters was great. Steak was fantastic, rest of food just mediocre. For the price I expected a lot more all around. 80% of customers had jeans - no dress code apparently. We won't be returning. Morton's is just around the corner and is a much better, classier dining experience!"

  • "We celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary at Mo's and were thoroughly impressed. The atmosphere was your typical high end steakhouse. It was quiet and romantic. Our waiter was outstanding. John was attentive and professional yet he engaged in conversation throughout the evening and made us feel very comfortable. The food was outstanding. My bone in filet was to die for. My wife had the braised ribs that just melted in your mouth. We were served a complimentary dessert personalized for our special occasion. We will definitely return on our next special occasion."

  • "They really mean it when they say "Mo's, the place for steak". You can't finally a better steak in Houston. Believe me, my wife and I have tried. Steaks can be tricky depending on the thickness. We both order filets(different kinds). They were proper thickness for the portion and cooked exactly as we asked. The sides are gourmet. Dessert are delicious! Serves is best in town. We have extend the seafood in the past and it was also perfect"

  • "Mo's was a good choice for a meal for two (do make sure to get one of the booth's though). They had a great pianist playing and singing at the other end of the restaurant, but it would have been a little too loud if I'd been much closer (I was as far away as it was possible to get). The food was very well prepared, steak was of fine quality and the sides were good too. Each side was ridiculously large (would easily have fed four if not more), it seems a bit of a waste of food, but then I'm in Texas.... Last thing, the service is too attentive. I hate being interrupted in the flow of conversation every few minutes to check everything is ok. If it's not I will say, but constantly interrupting isn't (in my view) great service."

  • "Their wagyu steak is amazing! Sides are okay. The lobster ceviche and bacon wrapped scallops are great! And as usual, the service is always spot on."

  • "The service and ambience was fine, but the steak (I had a bone-in filet) was mediocre. If it was priced appropriately (about 50% of actual), it would be worth it, but there are way too many options in the area with much better food (every major steakhouse chain is nearby along with Papa's)."

  • "Me and my husband costed for the first time this last Saturday. We had reservations for 8:45 and had to wait almost 20 minutes to be seated. The ambiance was very nice and the food was good. However the wait staff was very slow in checking in on us and it took a long time to finally get out food. The cinnamon roll and ice cream dessert was great and the best part of the meal. I'm not sure if we will go back."

  • "My wife and I went to mo's for our post Valentine's dinner. We arrived a little early so our table wasn't ready. We tried to wait at the bar to have a couple of drinks but there wasn't much space and the bartenders were too busy to notice us. After a while we ordered our drinks just as our table was ready. The bartender insisted that we close our tab at the bar first which I didn't understand since the manager said he would transfer it. Any who, once we were sat our waitress was great. My wife and I both had the Angus beef filet and enjoyed it very much. Our waitress made a great wine recommendation which was reasonably priced. Instead of one of the sides offered we decide to have sushi as a side which was delicious."

  • "Too many good steak restaurants in Houston to give this one a great review. Appetizers were great. Wedge salad was very bland and lettuce was kind of watery. We had steak and lobster. We chose the Kobe filet with Oscar topping. Their was absolutely nothing special about this steak. Could have been from Luby's. definitely not worth the Kobe price. We've had Kobe before and you can really tell the difference. The lobster was a little tough and also bland. The Oscar topping was too thick and too rich. Our server was great and attentive. Overall a nice place but food was just not worth it."

  • "Service,food, atmosphere was excellent! Expect to pay $ 170 plus tip for 2 people with a bottle of wine, average price for the Galleria area. Steaks were cooked to order and tender. Good experience and would go back."

  • "My husband and I went to Mo's on our last night of our vacation to Houston. After driving by a few times on our trip and asking around for recommendations, we decided to dine at Mo's for our "steakhouse" dinner of the vacation. We could not have made a better choice. From the moment we walked in the door, the staff was extremely pleasant and accommodating to our food allergies. They were able to answer all of our questions and went out of their way to make our evening special. We ordered a sampler of steaks, all of which were cooked perfectly to our liking. The meats were so tender and delicious that we were in awe. To top it off, we were given a dessert on the house. We look forward to returning next time we're in Houston."

  • "I have been a huge fan of Mo's for the last 3 years. I took my husband there Saturday night to celebrate his birthday and the food was amazing. The only issue was service. Halfway through our dinner, our waiters changed. The first waiter was outstanding, the second waiter had no time for us. We ordered 2 Irish coffees and ended up with a glass filled with a shot of whiskey and a mug of coffee on the side. After notifying the manager, he was very apologetic and made sure to have it removed from our bill. The only issue was that our waiter then decided to ignore us the rest of the night. It took almost an hour to get our bill and pay it. This wouldn't have been an issue, but we were paying for a sitter to watch our daughter."

  • "the food was excellent and the service even better. It was nice to have waiters that were not high school kids and new what they were doing. You better plan to spent $70 minimum a person without the wine. We only go to Mo's 3 times a year (birthdays) and wish we can afford to go more often."

  • "We spent New Years Eve together just the two of us. It was a dining pleasure. From the great wait staff, to the romantic atmosphere. Jestin, the dining manager came by each table and added to the experience with his welcoming smile and the offer to do anything that he could to make our experience extra special. Fernando and Melvin waited on us like we were the only people in the room..... It was a night that we will remember for a long time."

  • "We love Mo's and always enjoy our outings there. We had a different server than we normally do and I don't think the service was as good as it usually is but otherwise it was great. We are looking forward to our family holiday dinner there"

  • "it has been five years since I have been here however I was impressed with what I saw. They updated the interior and it is a bit more hip. they have a great patio area for the warmer nights. The food was delicious. We ordered the aged rib eyes and of course those were great. We also ordered the Ahi tuna and the Sea Bass. The Sea Bass was bland however the Ahi tuna was very flavorful. For sides we ordered mashed potatoes, spinach, and the fried onion rings (always delish). I would return again."

  • "We had a really great time here a few weeks ago so happy to try it again. Unfortunately, the night was terrible. The food was really good so that part was fine but the service was horrible. This was the 2nd time in a row it happened, the other bad time was dining on the patio so we thought maybe it's just good in the dining room. Again, the service was terrible and really slow. Started out fine but after ordering, it was 35min before we got our appetizers and the dining room was about 60% full. We really wanted the night to be good but since this was 2x in a row now we won't be coming back. I guess the first time where we had a great time was unique. Part of these types of restaurants besides the food is supposed to be amazing service."

  • "We tried Mo's for first time a couple weeks ago and had an amazing experience (ate in the dining room) so we decided to go back. We ate outside since the weather was great. Not sure if outside is just staffed differently or it was a bad night but the service was horrible. We didn't even get water until about 25min after we were seated, and the rest of the service was also very slow. The food was really good, so that was at least a positive for the night. Since we had such a great time before we plan to try again but next time eat inside to see if it will be back to the great time we had before. We would only come back to the patio if we just wanted drinks. Disappointed as we had high hopes for this place."

  • "There are definetively better options in town... Sorry Mo's! I had been there 2 or 3 years ago, and had the same experience, i gave it a second chance; which I now know was the last... Nothing bad or wrong, just prices are sustantially higher than other steakhouses for NO reason..."

  • "Tried this place out and had a really great experience. The food and service both were completely outstanding. When compared to other fine dining steak places in Houston, in our opinion based on this visit Mo's would rate as #1 with us. All the normal things you would expect from a fine dining place, they got right - any special request was taking care accurately and the first time, service was very attentive but not over the top, the waiter was knew answers to our questions, etc... Will definitely try this place out again and hope it's just as good."

  • "We had a great dining experience at Mo's recently. Our server was John K. (Floor captain). He was outstanding, excellent service and even better food! The restaurant is very impressive, great place for date night or special occasion. I would highly recommend this place to anyone! The owner was there that night greeting people and hanging out with everyone, he treated the place like his very own restaurant! Will be going back soon!"

  • "The food is delicious and the atmosphere is great. The outdoor seating area provides a more relaxed atmosphere, if you're interested in watching the game (at the bar, too), but the dining area is soft light and romantic. I've been there with friends, and my spouse - it's a great place for both. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. Great service, and great detail given. I've been to Mo's just a few times, but I've yet to have something I don't like. And you must get dessert. Cinnamon roll; strawberry shortcake; chocolate cake; chocolate chip cookie. Yum."

  • "This was our second time at Mo's and we are really getting enamored with this place. The vibe is just perfect, classy but not stuffy, the service is amazing and the food is wonderful. We are already planning on going to Mo's for our special family holiday dinner. I would take Mo's over the Capital Grille anytime."

  • "We dine at Mo's about every three months and have never been disappointed. Saturday night was different. When we arrived it was a normal welcome at Mo's. Very welcoming and they sat us immediately. From there it went down hill. Our waiter explained to us about Houston Restaurant Weeks and then continued to rush us through that menu without even giving us the time to look at the regular menu. What if we didn't want to select from the HRW menu? He went on to tell us we needed to order quickly because we would be getting 3 courses, not anything new for us at Mo's. Once we ordered he didn't seem interested in us for the rest of the evening. I guess once you order from the HRW menu, they write you off as a customer. Should not offer this menu."
