    We found the staff welcoming and thoroughly attention through out our dinner. We each had the mid sized tenderloin plus we split a side order of asparagus and a baked potato. The tenderloin was cooked as requested and both sides arrived hot which is something we always appreciate. We both felt that the salt and garlic seasoning on the tenderloin was a bit stronger than we prefer, but I'm sure that others will be fine with it. On a future visit we would request that they moderate the seasonings to better suit our tastes. Prices are "pricey" but this is a downtown restaurant and beef "ain't gettin any cheaper."

    Mo's is a great, friendly, old-fashioned steakhouse. Comfortable, with great service, Mo's serves as good a steak as one can get -- cooked precisely to the desired temperature, prime pieces of meat, seasoned just right. Mo's can even make a filet -- which I usually consider dull and bland -- come alive.

    I went here on a Monday night for my husband's birthday. While the place wasn't particularly modern, there was a live piano player which won me over in the ambiance category. Our servers, Sarah and Ben, were excellent. We even got a complimentary ice cream topped cookie for dessert. Most of what we ate was delicious (calamari, lobster bisque, filet). However - when my salmon arrived, it didn't taste fresh which was a huge turnoff. Luckily I was already stuffed so I packed it to go for my dog; there goes 30some dollars. I did have a cold so maybe it was just my sense of taste... I don't want to write this place off, but I will definitely not return for the fish.

    Overall wonderful experience. However, on arrival we were told there were no tables available. We were asked to wait in a small bar area and have a drink. The bar was jammed with no opportunity to get near the bar. My wife, daughter and I were forced into a very small atrium and pushed around by others coming in. The arriving diners all went to tables. Just not us. After 10 min or so we were seated in a largely empty dining area. A bad start to what turned into a nice evening.

    While I can not say it was bad...I can say it did not live up to my expectations... The food was good but did not live up to its pricing...the service while good....did not wow me. If I had to pick a steakhouse...this would not be a place I would suggest. yet because I had to pick one I said they have a notable wine list...

    I normally don't choose steak when dining out as I usually look for something more creative. However, my 2 guests and I had a wonderful meal. We all had filets that were cooked just as we ordered. I added the red wine reduction on the side and it was delicious. The sautéed spinach was firm and had just the right amount of garlic and the sliced cherry tomatoes were a nice touch. The service matched the meal as we received continuous attention. It's not cheap but they delivered.

    Every aspect of the meal was top notch. When we arrived they made note of our anniversary and the menu said "happy anniversary" on it. The servers (multiple) were attentive and never left us wanting for anything. The food was excellent. The app and salad were good. The steaks we ordered were cooked perfectly and seasoned well. The sides were also very good. Since it was a special occasion they gave us a special free dessert, which was very nice. I would highly recommend this place.

    Good food and service. The only thing that bothered me is a basic salad is included in the price of a dinner. I choose to upgrade my salad to a caesar. Which by the way was very good. I figured there would be an upgrade charge, but was very surprised that they charged as if I had ordered it ala carte - $8 which I considered a rip off. I won't do that again and suggest you don't do it either!

    I wanted an upscale restaurant with great food & atmosphere, but also somewhere you could dress more casual as I didn't know how my customers would be dressed. While most of the crowd was dressed up, customers were business casual and in jeans. When we first walked in we almost turned around, felt under-dressed. Went in anyway and it was worth it. (I would still recommend business casual attire min). Bartender was great, personable, quick, wait staff was good. Food was very good. Lobster mac fantastic. Customers loved the Wagyu steak which was around $70 for 8 oz (cheap compared to Carnivor). Also didn't feel stiff, I think it was a much better choice than Carnivor for the environment I wanted.

    It was something I would only do once in a lifetime to be honest. Not for the normal family on a budget. It was nice to celebrate our 20th Anniversary, but it's a goos thing that only happens once in a lifetime, cause we could never afford it. Not someplace to take the whole family, unless money is no object!

    My wife and I had dinner at Mo's on June 10. From the greeting by the hostess to the thank you's it was a first class dinner. Our servers were Kate and Emily and they were extremely professional, knowledgeable, and very nice people. My wife had the small filet and I had the scallops and filet. Both meals were excellent. Our side was the twice baked potato which was very good. As it was our anniversary the staff provided a dessert of a warm cookie with chocolate sauce and ice cream. While that doesn't sound like much it was very good. Last year for our anniversary we were at Del Frisco's in NYC. While that was good we both thought Mo's was better.

    My parents and I were celebrating my Mom's 80th birthday (which I noted in my reservation). We received "Happy Birthday" menus and as requested, a table by the window. Mom loved having a 4oz tenderloin steak option and my dad and I split a 16oz NY Strip steak. Ordered a side of asparagus which was as promised, enough for the 3 of us. Mom received a comp birthday desert. All nicely done. My only knock was our beverages didn't arrive until our entres did. Very nicely attentive service otherwise. Perfect for our night to see a show at the Riverside.

    This was our second time at Mo's, celebrating an anniversary. We were warmly greeted by the hostesses and were seated at our table right away. The servers were also very pleasant and interpersonal. We had a wonderful dinner and were given a special occasion dessert which was out of this world. Food was outstanding. Service was outstanding. We will definitely be back. Next time though we will try to be earlier to find parking which was a headache. We ended up using the valet. The guys were not mean or anything, but they were just not warm, inviting, or attentive. Every place has got to have one small flaw right? Here it was the valet guys.

    The 8 oz. filet was absolutely delicious! If I could "bottle" the medium-plus preparation from this meal and take it with me then every steak I have the remainder of my life would be perfectly prepared! Furthermore, the service provided by John and Tony was sensational. My only "criticism" would be the "by the glass" wine menu, which was meager. Also, I am surprised that there was only one wine offered in a 375 ml size. Nevertheless, another fantastic meal at Mo's.

    After spending a day in the garden, my husband surprised me with a visit to this much raved about steakhouse located downtown Milwaukee. The filet mignon was superb and did not even need the Mo's steak knife that accompanied the meal. My husband had the raised Short Rib with Asparagus Horseradish Risotto which was a delicious blend of tastes to complement the ribs. We coupled that with a shared portion of broccoli florets and a mound of onion rings. The half portions were more than ample. The waiters we had could not have been more accommodating. Even the busboys made sure your water glass was always full. A pleasant touch was a clean napkin on the table after a visit to the powder room. We will return again and very soon!

    This is one of the only places where once you go you feel at home. The wait staff is always glad to see you and work hard to remember you and call you by name. You are immediately a friend and the service is the best I have experienced.. Kate is always excellent and the bar staff makes us always feel important- I would recommend the Lobster Bisque, the filet and NY Strip and the onion Strings are to die for.

    We went here with great expectations. Being from Texas I expected it to be like a typical high-end steakhouse but the reality was far from this. The steaks were not cooked to the proper temperature and the salad was really worse than what you would get at a Denny's. The decor was not that fancy. The only thing that was good was the attentive service. Would not come back again.
