It's a nice restaurant in the Shandon area. The food and the service was very good.

A great evening!!!
It was a very lovely evening. I did not know in advance that live music would be playing. To walk in and see Dante Lewis I knew I was in for a treat. I was not disappointed.

MoMo's is among the best in Columbia, SC. If you haven't been you really should go.

Great Open Table Find
My husband and I were driving through Columbia on our way to Hilton Head. We used Open Table to find a place for dinner and were extremely pleased with our experience. The food and service were excellent. There was also a great live jazz band.

Can't wait to eat here again
I booked a reservation for a group of 8 people (4 couples). We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. From the filet to the seafood cakes, to the kangaroo and the halibut (chef's catch of the day)...everyone enjoyed every bite. We all ordered desserts, which were equally as appetizing. The portions were healthy and the sides were as delicious as the entrees. Our server, Nathaniel, was very attentive and accommodating to our group. I will absolutely come to Momo's again, whether for a date night with my husband or for a night out with friends.

Mothers Day Brunch
We went for Mothers Day Brunch and took the children. We had a 1:30 pm reservation. Our server was slow getting to us (10 min) but he apologized and made up for it. Apparently he was in the kitchen helping with clean up. Good was great and they had some different things even though it was a buffet. They had a seafood stew over risotto and also a yellow rice with lamb. The favorite of both my wife and me was the prime rib. It was exceptional! The kids had plenty of choices with salmon, fried chicken and lots of desserts.

My party and I enjoyed the entire experience! -the food, music and the wait staff! we enjoyed the older couple dancing and the musician coming to our table. I was celebrating my 80th birthday and the music was very fitting.

Great Dining Experience
Although we've dined here before, we've haven't been here recently. The food was wonderful, and the service attentive. I had the duck breast, and it was prepared medium rare as I requested. My husband had the Seafood Belmar that contained a variety of shellfish and fish which were cooked perfectly. There are many entrees on the new menu that we're interested in trying, so I'm sure we'll be back soon.

The truffle fries I had we're as good as the ones I' e gotten in Napa Valley. The restaurant was having a free wine tasting and my husband loved it! Excellent food and service

MoMo's is Back!
MoMo's is back and better than ever! The band packed the place and the staff delivered. The menu was excellent - I like the addition of more small plates and items to dip and share. Can't wait to go back again.

Great place for a Special Ocassion
We were celebrating my mother's 70th Birthday & this completed a full day & week of celebration. Everything was perfect.
Thanks MoMo's Bistro for helping me make my mother's Birthday so Special. The atmosphere was great, the food was excellent and the staff was very friendly & professional. I would gladly recommend this restaurant for almost any Ocassion. I am looking forward to visiting again.

Little Known Gem
Mo-Mo's seems to be flying under the radar in Columbia. We have been several times recently, and the food was excellent. We especially appreciate the "Small Plates". My wife had the seared scallops and I had the petit filet. Both were perfectly prepared. We especially enjoyed the entertainment, especially when you are lucky enough to catch John Valerio performing on the piano with his bassist.

Went here for our 5th Anniversary. We have been several times in the past as well. The food is always delicious and the service is typically outstanding. Nathaniel was our server again (had him in the past also). Very friendly and attentive to our needs.

Superb basil encrusted tuna
a menue special last night and the basil encrusted tuna was one of the best tuna dishes I have ever had. The fish was perfectly cooked and the portion was just right--neither too small or too large. The dressing on the house salad was flavorful and not too heavy. Delightful evening on the patio.

The food was very good and the menu selection was tough. Will be back to try the other items on the menu.

Great for a special occasion! We were in town for Parent's Weekend and wanted to take our daughter out somewhere special. MoMo's fit the bill perfectly. Our next destination was a cocktail reception so their small plates were an excellent choice for us.

Enjoyed it very much
We were in town for USC parent's weekend and were looking for an upscale restaurant to take our son. I found this on open table and the reviews were good. The restaurant did not disappoint.....the food was very good (loved the truffle fries), service great. We were having a hard time deciding between wines, so they brought us a small glass of each to try. Very classy! Would recommend it and plan to eat there again next time we are in Columbia.

I couldn't have had a better dining experience than I had at MoMo's Bistro. The food was excellent, with good-sized portions, and the service was impeccable. The night I dined they had live music and it was great--not too loud or intrusive, just the right touch.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
They are back
Momo's has a new chef and wait staff and fun place to go again had a great band on thursday night and has good music every thursday and friday

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!!

Really enjoyed a lovely and delicious dinner at Mo Mos. Had not been in awhile and loved the menu and new small plates. Great all around.

Food and service was excellent.
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.
