Went for my wife's birthday. Party of 12.
Food was great but the highlight was service. Benjamin, our server was attentive and polite. Highly recommend it.

I grew up in a Moroccan family and was raised on Mediterranean staples. This restaurant misses the mark completely. The menu is ambitious but gets all the basics wrong. Whole wheat sourdough Israeli pita... why complicate a perfectly simple thing? Even if prepared to taste right the texture was stale. Falafel - very dry. Hummus - half way descent. Cocktails and pickles were good, but that was not enough to save the meal. Also, the whole interior direction of the place is confused. Lastly, the service was just awkward. No one was particularly warm or excited about the menu (makes sense tho). It didn’t really feel like we had a proper server, just serve people taking our orders and us flagging someone down when we needed something. My recommendation: do yourself a favor and spend your evening at Kismet or Open Sesame. Kismet does high concept far better and Open Sesame is authentic, delicious Lebanese you will want to keep coming back for.

Lovely space, great tasting food. Our only issue that the service staff gave one of our dishes to the group next to us, leaving us waiting and wondering where it went? In any case, we canceled and still had a pleasant meal. Great atmosphere, kind of a hidden Atwater gem.

Such a great surprise. This was our first time here and it was great. We went for Valentine’s Day and it was perfect. The food was great as well as the service. The ambiance is very relaxed but fun, which is totally our style. We will definitely be going back.

Terrific food, beautifully presented, attentive and knowledgeable service. It is located next to the train tracks, so it can get noisy.

Enjoyed Brunch at the restaurant. The Brussels Sprouts was excellent and flavorful. Our party's meal includes french toast, meatball and short ribs. Each was prepared superbly and serviced by an attentive staff. The staff uses a casual style but was always around if something was needed. I would go back to the venue for a meal.

I realized after I parked that I've been here before, the place was packed which help the high energy and ambience. We had the shrimps appetizers that were excellent, we also had the famous Momo chips and we weren't impressed. My wife had the Lamb Kabob and I had the Scottish Salmon, they were both excellent, the lamb been slightly better. We couldn't resist their desserts, the Basbousa was delicious and a fresh taste and the flour-less chocolate cake was also just fine. Excellent cocktails. The service was outstanding. We had a great time and we'll be coming back soon.

Great place for brunch, good coffee, fewer egg selections than in the past (somehow the omelet disappeared from the menu), but several good choices. Reasonably quiet when they don't have the DJ or a big noisy group there. Very nice in good weather. Patio is heated and protected with plastic drapes, and OK any time but better when it is warm out.

The Brussels sprouts (starter) were VERY tart from so much lemon juice. Not very crispy, but oily.
Arugula &Fig Flatbread was too sweet. Yes it’s a plate that should be sweet, but it was not balanced and we could only stomach one slice of how sweet it was. Would recommend the restaurant modifies these 2 plates.

This was an uncharacteristically disappointing visit, primarily due to the long wait for the braised short ribs, which was not communicated to us until we had already been waiting close to 45 minutes. The ribs were comped—but that’s not at all the point is it?

I've been to Momed a few times in the past and thought it would be a great place for Christmas Eve. Not too busy and with a special menu, it was perfect. We ordered a lot of appetizers to split and then had a main dish each + a dessert to share. The drinks were also spectacular, really enjoyed the special seasonal menu. Can't wait to return.

It was a rainy Sunday evening before the Christmas holiday so it was quiet in the restaurant. The food was delicious and we had a lovely time.

The wild salmon was the best I have ever had. I can not remember the name of the dish but the flavors were so good we had to ask for bread to wipe the plate to savor all of it. I did not like that we had to pay extra for the bread, that is a shame because the sauce is too good to waste.

Great ambiance and love that it is not on a busy street. The sitting area was kept warm with heaters which was great since it was raining all day. They allow dogs so if Fido behaves bring them over. The food was delicious, it’s not something you can find on everyday restaurants. Portions are big enough to share for two people so be aware. The cooking methods really captured the food of the regions.
