Cute and small. This is a good location to grab a quick bite, lunch or a casual evening out. For me, ambiance is not what I want for a girls night out or romantic evening, but staff was very nice and attentive. Food was delicious. Would come back!

Momed is always excellent--food amazing, service good, wonderful cocktails. It is usually blissfully quiet and comfortable. For some reason we experienced two extremely loud, large parties the night we were there, which put a damper on our enjoyment of the meal. But otherwise, all was perfect as usual.

I am a semi-regular customer of Momed Atwater Village. Their food is very good, and the staff always friendly and helpful. Their semi-outdoor seating is delightful, even in cooler weather with the help of heaters. In all, it's a great ambiance. I have one small complaint: they like to keep their music a little to loud for quiet conversation. It's a "thing" these days, I guess, since I find it the case at a number of places. However, I find it discourages conversation.

That said, I continue to go, and will do so.

I was really looking forward to the famed and much written about Momed. It was good and certainly not bad, but didn’t feel like it lived up to its hype. We felt a little attitude from the maitre d, who sat us after checking in for our reservation. We later found the other two in our party who had been told to wait at the bar until in the party were present. The place was half empty and it was pouring, so I find that tactic a little silly. Typical of the scene, but pointless. Nothing unprofessional, just a little chilly vibe. Wait staff was good. Food was good, not great. The lamb burger is good. Octopus, very good. The dishes that meld the middle eastern spices like the zaatar topped bread was good but missed hitting its comfort food potential and instead skewed towards“foreign spice novelty” instead of something hearthy and inviting. Nice environment, and staff was focused on checking for rain entering, to their credit.

We went here instead of schlepping downtown to Baco Mercat thinking it would be comparable. It is very good but a little more straight-on Mediterranean - not as inventive as Baco. The menu highlights were: The Moorish Prawns, Duck Shawarma, Braised Short Rib Tajine and Za'atar and paneer flatbread.

We like Momed ... we frequent it a considerable amount over years. The food is very good ... mostly. But it has become stupid expensive for what it is. The octopus special was ONE over cooked tentacle with some potatoes.

Dinner for 4 no alcohol with one person having a burger was $195.

Tucked away in Atwater it has an indoor/outdoor garden like feel. The drinks are creative and their Vesper is excellent. The wine list is good and the food is a good cut above other restaurants. Their starters are varied and do not disappoint. My favorite entree is the lamb on skewer with onions and vegetables. The fish is really good as well. Momed is one of my favorites.

This is the kind of restaurant where the staff is proud of the food they are serving and the job that they do. I love their flair for flavors and the quality of each individual ingredient that created a treat for the senses with every meal. One of the few places I always order appetizers, main, cocktails, coffee and dessert each time I go!

We loved Momed in Atwater for a long time ... their octopus, mohamara are the tops ... duck shawarma inventive & delish ... but ... I say but - a few years ago, they got expensive ... sushi expensive so we went less. There’s plenty of good/ great Middle Eastern in this town after all. I guess Momed is really fine dining ... but homey & comfort food like all at the same time.

What an absolutely beautiful restaurant. Spacious, industrial look but still feels warm. Service excellent. We shared various appetizers that were very good. Modern tasty twist on Mediterranean dishes. Food is fresh and flavorful. We did not get entree but will be back. Nice wine list but first 2 we wanted to try were not available as they were updating wine list. Goid beer selection. We are going back next week!

I made a reservation here, for me and some friends, preceding a show at the Chalk Repertory Theatre. Everything about Momed was great: we were greeted when we walked in, the service was just right (attentive but not hovering), the food was delicious and rich...and the proximity to the theater made it a perfect night!

Pretty and open space. Warm and attentive service. And, of course, delicious food, well presented. My friend and I are big esters, so we each ordered a brunch item and split an entree salad. That was just perfect. And don’t miss the Bloody Mary’s!

Beautiful large room that feels like a tent with large flame lights/heaters. Service friendly and attentive. They had half price bottles of wine and food was quite tasty, but the dessert a baklava bread pudding was dense and odd. It was the night after Thanksgiving and few people were there which I expect is not typical. We had a very pleasant time.

This is the 2nd time I have been to this restaurant. There is a lovely outside dining area and biggest draw it is next door to Echo Theater. Food is adequate, but prices are about 1/3 higher when compared to other Mediterranean Restaurants with similar food in more upscale areas.
