Food was perfectly prepared and delicious. Service was slow and practically nonexistent. We had to sears for a server to order, find out about our slow order, for the check, and to pay. Otherwise, I would have given Momed 5 stars.

Too pricey for not so good food. We had a few dishes to share and they all were only okay. Ate at much better restaurants in LA for that price.

The menu is very limited . The dishes are good but expensive . Very rigid when you want to change veggies , charge 5$ extra . The best is the patio and quietness

Everyone is talking about Bavel in DTLA. But Momed is similar in cuisine, with a beautiful setting and much less expensive. Also the space is much more conducive to having a conversation with your friends.

Food was delicious, service people all took excellent care of us. The majority of our guests were first timers at Momed, and they came away very impressed and vowing to return. The only suggestion I have is to work on getting some sound baffling for the restaurant, we had 2 individuals with issues with their hearing who came away so sorry they did not hear everything tablemates were saying. Regardless, we'll be back.

Cauliflower eggs benedict with potatoes in olive tapenade plus the avocado/lemon flatbread to share. WOW. Perfection in my mouth. Love the roar of the train as it rushes by.

Momed has an indoor/outdoor setup, made cozy by well-placed heaters. It's not a noisy place, which is nice for having conversations during your meal. Everything I've had is delicious. I'm especially fond of the Brussels sprouts appetizer, the lamb burger, and Mary's Chicken (I know it's nuts to wax rhapsodic over a chicken dinner, but this is sublime!) The servers are knowledgeable and helpful. Highly recommended.

I like Momed for many reasons - food, cocktails, location,... but the most appealing thing about Momed to me is its indoor/outdoor atmosphere and urban feel.

As always Momed was a delight. From the warm greeting, attentive service and genuinely amazing food the meal was a true pleasure. I also observed the house manager circling to assure all parties were as content as we were.

I have been at MoMed many times for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it. Valentin's Day dinner we sat inside and were confronted with a lot of noise. We asked the waiter if he could ask the DJ to turn down the music and were told that couldn't be done.

I'm giving it two stars because of the awfully rude manager and the bland food, it all looked so nice, but there was absolutely no flavor and some stuff was paired wrong like the chips and garlic sauce was absolutely nauseating.

The manager, a bald middle eastern looking guy was so so so rude. Rather than apologizing that we didn't enjoy what we were eating he responds and says "well you must be wrong because we've been serving this for 12 years and everyone loves it". Well I'm not quite as arrogant as he is, or rude, so I kept my next response to myself. But here goes, if they love it so much why was it only half way full at prime dinner time on Valentine's Day? The ambiance was great, plating and appearance of the food great, vibe and location of the place great, and they have been around for 12 years. Don't you think they would be sold out on Valentine's Day? Like most popular restaurants.

Well I think you should listen to your customers comments or at least pretend to listed. Now you have a negative review and an angry customer. Plus a possible dispute on its way! All you had to do was apologize and hear me out.

Momed is one of the amazing restaurants that's hidden inside a neighborhood but you're always happy that you found it. The atmosphere is amazing, with a large al fresco dining area, especially when the weather is normal LA perfection, but even in the rain the other night, it was delightful. The food is high quality and I have never been disappointed with a single dish each time I've dined here. Usually we end up with a ton of small dishes and never make it to the large dishes, but I have no doubt that they're also solid. Don't sleep on Momed, a great dining option!

The setting is lovely, it’s convenient to the theater. But the food was mediocre at best—dried out chicken in my salad and bad coffee (unable to finish it). The lunch was soured for me from the get-go by a rude and kind of mean manager or whoever he was working at the front desk.

Husband said the short ribs were outstanding. The vegetarian tagine was unfortunately boring and overly sweet. Felafel and eggplant appetizers were solid, and the wine, recommended by the excellent waiter, was superb. Will return with a larger group and try some different items.

Not for dinner, I have been there a few times for brunch, and that is pretty great, but they totally missed the mark for dinner. I was celebrating my bday and I had a party of 12, the food was totally mediocre, not at all in line with the prices that we paid. Everyone was a little disapointed, I was very disappointed since I'm the one who brought everyone there. I don't mind paying a premium price, but the food has to measure up, and it didn't. Also, our server was not that friendly. We were all in great spirits celebrating a birthday, but she seemed a little annoyed with us, I should have probably asked for another server. She wasn't bad, she just wasn't so friendly and I felt like since there is an automatic gratuity on the bill, she didn't really need to work for it. I will not be coming back for dinner.

Truly outstanding in every way. We came for brunch on Sunday, and were seated immediately. The patio noise level (courtesy of the live DJ) was a bit much for us, so we moved to an indoor table. Our server, Abby, was friendly, professional, and extremely accommodating. After agonizing over the surfeit of menu choices, our party of three ordered, and our shared appetizer of Momo Chips arrived quickly. Thick cut potato slices, perfectly cooked and seasoned, with two dipping sauces. They didn't last long. Then the entrees arrived. Duck Shawarma Wrap and two orders of Short Rib Fricassée (with one substituting "hangover meatballs" for the eggs). Presentation was artful, and taste was spectacular. Portions were huge. We all sampled each other's and left nothing on our plates. We then watched as the Ram's won in overtime, and left feeling full and triumphant. Just a perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

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.
