Peak hour dining, could tell they were slammed, but was just the dining experience we needed in these times. We'll be back again soon.

Ambience and setting are on point. They take the health and safety measures very seriously now which is reassuring. Food is incredible. Service was a bit lacking, had to hunt for someone to place our order and our server seemed to have disappeared for a while. Otherwise was a great time, delicious brunch and wonderful time.

We were so excited for LA to re-open outdoor dining and MOMED was one of the first places we thought to go. Even before COVID, it was the perfect place to eat outdoors! It's a nice blend of "vibrant and hip" and "family friendly" -- something for everyone. The food is always tasty and service was great.

This has to be the WORST place I have ever eaten at!

It all began when we were seated next to a fence with a view of train track on a romantic Valentine's Day Evening. When I asked the hostess if I can move to a different table, I got a rude "the seats are pre-assigned".

I then asked the random waiter if I can move and it was no problem at all. The drinks we ordered were great, but scared from the HORRIBLE food.

We ordered a starter of beef and lamb dumplings that tasted so bad we had to switch them out for the Trio. (Pita and hummus. Sadly the best food at this place)

My girlfriend got the chicken and potatoes that were burnt to a crisp and the chicken was so dry that it felt like eating sand.

I ordered the Shish kabob and decided to switch with my girlfriend so that she had something to eat.

The Shish Kabob was barely cooked and was extremely rare, we barely ate at all! Yet I paid for the drinks, the trio, and the kabob.

I notified the manager of how awful the food was. Normally a manager would say "so sorry that you had a bad time, let me refund you and make things right". INSTEAD I got "you should of told us and we would of send you another chicken".

Really? So now I had to take my girlfriend to go get pizza because we left hungry.

If you are reading this, you will have a better chance getting some great food at a food truck than this place.

Disgusting

The food at Momed is very good - clean, but flavorful and moderately unique. I love all of the vegetarian options. The service is highly lacking, however, and a restaurant experience is about service, ambience, and food. Sadly, the food can't stand on it's own. The outdoor dining is not pretty. Moreover, it was insanely cold and windy, and the staff didn't seem to care about the three tables that were out in the exposed area. The hosts are cold -barely a greeting upon arrival. Then, when you tell them your name for the reservation, they turn away without any acknowledgement. Minutes later, they say something like "Ok, can you wait over there? It'll be a few minutes." No one refills your water or wine, it takes a long time to be greeted by your server, they default to expensive bottled water, no one says thank you upon leaving. I could go on. I like the food, but it's more like a postmates place, given the ambience and service are so subpar.

Everything was great except most if not all the pita bread that was served to us was raw for some reason. Which was a little bit of a bummer because I am crazy about bread haha, however overall my woman and I had a lovely time. The atmosphere was really great and momentarily made us forget that COVID was a thing.

Went there for a special Valentine's day brunch. The food was everything I was anticipating and tasted delicious. Service was great and everyone was super kind and very friendly.

Compliance with covid regulations was enforced and stated up front. I had a table far from other people which I appreciate but never felt forgotton.

I am very happy with my experience! :D

Great food. Great outdoor setting. Service wasn’t great at first. No explanation on how menus were viewed so we were sitting for 10 minutes without any instructions or introduction. It was difficult to get a hold of a server to take our orders. But food and ambience were great so would come back again hoping service isn’t always that bad.

We were thrilled to go out to eat since restaurants have been closed for so long due to the pandemic. Upon arriving to our table, a guest in our party of 4 wanted a different table. The host (who turned out to be one of the owners) aggressively responded to the request and asked if we wanted to eat there or not - I was astounded. I worked in the restaurant industry as a sommelier and was shocked at the rude demeanor and attitude of the owner. It's pretty commonplace for a guest to request a different table, and true hospitality would try to accommodate the guest in a respectful manner - definitely a ding for the restaurant. Besides this interaction, everything else was great. Our server Tricia was incredible, kind, and very helpful. The Momed Plate (3) is a great starter for the table. The Armenian Sparkling wine is great. Had the Lamb burger and it was almost perfect - just needed a little salt.

Overall, I really enjoyed the food and lively ambience. Tricia brought back a good energy after our initial interaction with the owner. I would come back!

Obvious concerns about covid safety were immediately managed. Tables were spaced very far apart- all wearing mask etc. The food is so so so good with great wine pairings as well. Our server was very informed about all the dishes - gave great recommendations on what to share- offered tastings of wine to help make decisions. overall a great experience and we will be back. Especially for the beef kabobs and if youre lucky they will have the grilled Lamb special again . see ya soon!!

One of the best hidden gems of LA. Great ambiance, food is amazing, staff is on point. I have never had a bad experience there. I hate reviewing and sharing these kind of places since the wait time is very acceptable right now. Would hate to have them say, "Sorry, we're completely booked. " But, I want them to succeed in these crazy times. So, if you can't sit and dine there, order their food to go. You will not be disappointed.

The food and service was really good only issue is that the tables were wayyyy to close together. Idk how they were measuring but there were chairs less than 4 feet from us on every side. For this reason I would not return. I Know they need to make a profit but it should not be at the expense of the customers safety.
