Mediterranean
Welcome to Momed, (pronounced mo-med.) short for Modern Mediterranean. Equal parts restaurant, deli, espresso bar and marketplace, Momed embraces the pure, simple flavors from the many countries that comprise the eastern Mediterranean region with a vibrant modern twist. Our goal is to use the finest ingredients available in order to present Mediterranean cuisine at its best. Our passion for food, personalized service and a clean, modern aesthetic combines with centuries old tradition to bring you a taste you can savor at breakfast, lunch or dinner. From the arc of the Levant, from Athens to Marrakech, Istanbul to Jerusalem, Eastern Mediterranean cuisine is synonymous with a healthy diet and where possible, all our ingredients are locally produced, seasonal and organic. Momed is a place where old world leisure comfortably abides with new world convenience, so whether you drop in for a carry out or settle down for a feast you’ll be part of the bustle of a Mediterranean cafe.

Thank you Momed - Atwater Village for opening again. We love your patio area, the food is always delicious, and of course the staff is always very gracious. We also felt safe and assured that you were following our new normal. We’ll be back soon.

The food was sublime...and more than worth the trip from Pasadena. We ordered the Momo Chips, Cleopatra Salad and the Short Ribs Tajines.

Will return soon. Yes, it's located in an out of the way location. But who cares when the food is this good? We recommend it to several of our friends.

We felt very safe -- everyone was wearing masks and more than socially distanced!

Lovely covered patio in which to enjoy your first restaurant meal since the loosening of restrictions on dining-in. Careful attention to all safety measures--important to two 65-year-olds. Great food but a bit on the expensive side.

Momed has done a great job of reopening. While we enjoyed the take-out family meals during the shut-down, nothing compares to being back in this lovely setting. The food remains outstanding and the indoor/outdoor seating make it perfect for getting out of the house and sharing time with your "pod" with generous social distancing from other customers. Thank you!

Beautiful outdoor environment with a Southeast Asian industrial feel. Amazing food. Service was slow and prices are high - especially for wine. Would definitely return and probably drink iced tea!

Momed is a beautiful place that I’d never been to before! Just looking at it from the street you’re glad you made it here. Particularly during the social distancing, the outdoor atmosphere and the large distance between you and other guests is ideal! The service was excellent and so was the food! It offers a variety of vegetarian, seafood and meat dishes. All with unique flavors, beautifully seasoned! I recommend this off the beaten path, sanctuary from the world.

Great food with amazing flavors, but don’t expect to get full. Waitress recommended we share, but the portions were so small. We ordered 5 dishes with 4 people and left the restaurant still pretty hungry. And the bill was $230...cool atmosphere and a great place to just hang out get a few drinks and munch. I would not recommend those place is your wanting a full on dinner.

Sadly the food was extremely underwhelming. The mezze bread and dips weren’t appetizing (aside from the tziki which was good) and the shashuka was just ok. The water glasses smelled like wet dog. The place was pretty and I wanted to like it more!

We have visited Momed several times over the past few years. We always enjoy the meal. And even though most of the seats are outdoors under a covered patio, their space heaters do a good job, even on a chilly night.

Momed Atwater is always a pleasure and it didn't disappoint.
Food was delicious. The manager came by the table to ask how everything was and to welcome me back (have been a semi-regular for years) which was nice.
Everyone enjoyed what they ordered.
A pleasant little hide-away.

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.
