I really enjoy Momed--especially nice place to bring friends. It's "out of the way" in a more or less industrial corner of Atwater Village, so clearly qualifies as a "hidden gem." As the name implies (short for Modern Mediterranean), the food is interpretations of middle eastern dishes. Patio seating is really wonderful. Only drawback (in my opinion) is music is a touch on the loud side for quiet conversation. The occasional passing train is loud, but not bothersome. All in all, this is a terrific place.

love this restaurant....especially with Patrick as our waiter...like all, he accommodates our vegan and vegetarian friends who join us...favorite dishes are actually small plates/appetizers...I usually have the roasted brussel sprouts, the chicken soup and the 3 mushroom flatbread with added their spicy tomato sauce...DELISH!!! Love the ambiance...everything...it is pricey...but worth it...I hear the brunch is GREAT...must try. There is a vibrant theatre scene there with the Atwater Village Theatre Complex 2 doors away...so make a reservation. The place is semi outdoor.....so very lovely.....

This is one of our favorite spots...we are always warmly met; the wait staff is attentive; and the entrees are delicious.
There are only two negatives: I have never had a dessert here that was worth repeating....they always seem to be dry. We've tried the baklava bread pudding...which sounds incredible...but it was meh. Today, we tried the carrot cake...the frosting was too sweet (not enough like cream cheese) and the cake was dry.
Also, it would be lovely if they would change up the menu a bit.

Four friends and I had dinner before a play (next door). The food was great - flavorful, light, right-sized portions. The space was wonderful! I might ask for seats with backs next time, rather than the bench, but it really was a gorgeous area. Our waiter was lovely. The food took a little too long to arrive - we'd given ourselves 90 minutes before the show - but it was delicious.

We have yet to find a dish we haven't liked. The flatbread, especially the fig and arugula, are fantastic. Try the two Greek whites at the top of the wine list. Most refreshing. We took s friend here for her birthday and she was blown away. Great dining experience. A++++++++++.

Service was friendly but inept. Some of the food we ordered was quite good but some dishes really missed the mark. The menu descriptions failed to include adequate information leading to some problems. Our lamb kabobs were ordered medium rare but were served so rare they bled profusely. Our waiter took a drink order within minutes of our being seated then disappeared for twenty minutes, only remembering as he approached the table and, realizing his error, disappeared for another five minutes, finally serving the wine.

Other than the lamb, ome of the dishes were quite good, others just ok. The prices were quite steep and were not matched by the quality of the experience.

The good: the hostess and our server were very nice and accommodating. The restaurant is indoor/ outdoor and looks inviting. Parking is easy

The bad: well let’s just get past the point that the metrolink cruises by directly behind the dining room. Not a block behind. Directly behind. It disrupts conversations. The food was good enough but nothing about this place lines up with its price point, particularly for Atwater village. There are a million other restaurants to spend your money at. I certainly wouldn’t here again They have another location in Beverly Hills so I’m guessing the owners just duplicated their formula. However, I’ll guess the BH location doesn’t have the metrolink crusing through the dining room and then charge you for the pleasure. Also this price point requires more steps of service. We had to flag down the buser to ask for a box, who I might add was walking past our table while scrolling through his phone. He also cleared our four top in one stack over my baby’s stroller. He could have approached the table from three other sides. But I guess this was the best one for him. The table really required to be cleared by two people. My husband’s water glass was badly cracked and chipped. It was replaced quickly when we pointed it out. However it should have never made it to the table. It seems like they don’t detail their tables. The lighting is very low, so I wonder what else we and they didn’t see. Share plates for the shared dishes were slow to be replaced. Not the biggest deal at a more casual restaurant.

Overall not into 30 main courses with a train and missing service steps.

We took our dear friend here for a very special birthday celebration and we had the best time. The food was fantastic. I ordered for everyone and we got a ton of little bites and had our own tasting menu. The staff was so attentive and friendly, the room was easy and relaxed. No one rushed us and I actually love seeing the train go by every so often. It makes me laugh! We love to bring out-of-towners because they get to try things they have never seen before. I am so glad we have this lovely place so close to our house out here in NELA!

Holy Moly we love this place. 2nd time there and we're hooked. Come for the giant outdoor covered patio, that is most of the restaurant, stay for the amazing food and impeccable service. Our server, runners, bussers, everyone was so attentive and friendly and great at that their job. They obviously like working there and that is a positive reflection of the entire operation / owners/ management. My wife and I worked in a gajillion restaurants in LA which makes it really hard to spend $ eating out because so often there is a glaring issue w food or service.

We took our 8 month old daughter there for a rare "treat yourself," Saturday outing. This restaurant is simply inviting. I can't recommend it enough. The total w tip was $105, not a cheap for a meal for us but entirely reasonable prices, and the best part was leaving and saying to ourselves, ". WOw that was actually worth spending $100 to go eat a meal out together! ❤️

I keep coming to this place when I want to go out in Glendale. However, I am always disappointed with something at each visit. This time it was the pool made Margaritas, Loud Ambiance that could be better nuanced in this outdoor space. The food was "Meh": the Hummus is overrated, the meza serving too small with too little bread and they were out of several items on the menu.
However, the waiters were very friendly and attentive.

This place has improved! Ever since they go the full bar and updated the menu, it has really taken a major leap in quality. Always been a great space, but the bar area now feels like it's got a focus and is better integrated into the whole of the restaurant. If there is a knock, it is that it skews toward the upper end of moderate on the price.
