Always the best; best food, best service. So great the simplicity of the menu with each item a taste winner
The staff are great and the interns are the best part of the evening, a genuine experience.
Wonderful food, inspiring stories, great cause.
Most everything was wonderful! The carrot app was tasty but the carrots were almost raw. Fish was overall very good but would have benefited from less salt. The presentation of the fish was superb and it had a nice crust. Momentum salad was one of the best salads we've ever had. Service great and value amazing!
It was outstanding! Our server, Marquin, was very attentive.
We are fortunate to have Cafe Momentum in our city! I suggest the scallops and asparagus salad - delicious- but everyone around me cleaned their plates too! Don’t miss the opportunity to visit and revisit!
Wonderful - great food and I love what their mission is.
Amazing concept and supports so many good things. Fried chicken, biscuit and potatoes were delicious. Not usually a fan of collards, but these were good. Charcuterie board was beautiful, and I'm adventurous with food, but some of the flavors were either odd, or just didn't meld well. The sausage was amazing, though! Cookie skillet was delicious and coffee was excellent.
We were greeted promptly and with a smile. Our table was ready and well located in the restaurant which I appreciated. The service was very attentive. The food was amazing. I had a risotto that I would love to eat every day!
Great food, Great Service, Great Mission.
This place provides substance, meaning and relationship to both sides of the conversation. This statement will make sense once you have experienced dining at Momentum.
This would be a top level restaurant based on the food alone but when you factor in the mission and the impact they have on the community, this is an outstanding place.
Cafe Momentum is amazing! Such great food. We are vegan and the chef made us an amazing 4 course dinner. We'll be back.
Great food for an even better cause. What’s not to love about Cafe Momentum?
Great cause, very friendly service. Loved the food.
Without consideration of Cafe Momentum's charitable mission, this is an excellent restaurant, that has a creative and well-executed menu.
We love Cafe Momentum! The young people in the internship are inspirational. The food is great. It’s satisfying to support such a wonderful concept, one that often changes the outcomes for the participants.
So enjoyed meeting the "kids". The service and food was very good. Only negative I have is that it was VERY loud. Difficult to hear those at your table speaking to you.
Our first experience at Cafe Momentum. Our server, as well as the rest of the staff, was friendly and efficient. We have great respect for the mission of Cafe Momentum, and we were delighted to speak with Chad Houser. Anxious to return!
We enjoyed our first experience at Cafe Momentum. Martwan was learning to be a waiter (we were his first table) and he did an excellent job!
Incredible food, an even better mission.
We had another lovely meal...
And kudos to the chef who not only discussed pickling recipe tips with me, he gave me a jar of those amazing habanero carrots! Cafe Momentum ROCKS!
See you next month!
A great cause and really good food. We hope to return next time we are in Dallas.
Love this restaurant and it’s mission to retrain the misdirected youth from the prison system
I’ve been here several times and it’s always an amazing experience. The food is amazing, the service excellent and, most importantly, the program is one worth supporting.
We had a group of 8 and Nathaniel was our wait staff. He was patient throughout the ordering process even with changes from a few people. The other staff was on the ball all the time.
Excellent food. Excellent service. Great cause. We will be back again soon.
Everything about this restaurant and the concept is outstanding!!!
A group of women were celebrating a birthday. Great food and enjoyed getting to chat with Chad!
Such an uplifting place!! Food is excellent and being around these kids is really fun!
We loved it! Great atmosphere & staff. Really enjoyed our evening and visiting with our server. Such a great program and cause to get behind.
Best meal in Dallas
Excellent food. Very polite and attentive servers and overseers. Lots of food for the price.
Cafe Momentum never fails to deliver. The food was delicious, Nathan was an awesome server, and the charcuterie board is a MUST!!!!!
Could do this with friends once a month!
Our server Chris did a great job. So enthusiastic about the program.
Simply one of the best meals we have had in a long time!!! Delicious food with a good cause! Excellent!
This was our first time eating at Café Momentum, but it won't be the last. The food was outstanding and the cause was even better than the food. My hunger was satiated and more importantly I left feeling just a little bit better about the world we live in.
Good straightforward menu.
We had such a great experience at Cafe Momentum. Everybody was very nice and the food was amazing!
At the start, the service was a little slow. But when we told them that we needed to go to the symphony in about 1 hour, the service was very timely.
Food was excellent and so was the service. Definitely recommend. We'll return!
Not only was the food great, but the concept of the restaurant is terrific. Will definitely be back.
