All of the food was outstanding. Not just steaks although they were over the top. It was a special occasion so they brought out an unexpected dessert. We would go there again for sure.

We were staying at the Iron Horse Hotel and took a 6 min Uber drive over. The staff was fantastic. There were 4 of us out for a birthday dinner. We got a special desert at no charge and the food could not be better. The bill was very reasonable for the food and service. We will definitely be going back.

Mo's is my husband and I favorite place to go when we are feeling fancy! Our anniversary was on 12/6 and to dine at Mo's was a no brainer for us. They always have the best service and food is delicious! The place is nice and one time we were there, they had live music. It is a great upscale restaurant. I would just suggest to keep it in the more upscale rem, enforce some kind of dress code. There has been people come in in jeans and tennis shoes. I feel this can make the overall climate turn into a casual sports bar feel. To keep it a fancy, upscale dining experience enforce a dressier dress code.

I love Mo's a Place for AWESOME steaks. My son recently moved downtown and I traveled from the West Coast to see his place. We ate at nearby Mo's and I was astonished by the quality of the beef, the service, great martini, happy service. What a lovely evening. Now I think of my son's place as "near to Mo's" and am encouraging him to be a regular! BTW, the lobster mac & cheese and the cheesecake for dessert are simply divine.I also loved the beet arugula salad - amazingly fresh and perfectly dressed. I think I'll visit my son again and take him to Mo's A Place for Awesome Steaks. BTW we had the Wagyu beef and thought it well worth the extra cost.

I dined at MO's with my brother and Dad on the evening of December 1st just as we arrived to Milwaukee. From the very start the service was outstanding. Our service yes of Kate and Colleen (I hope I am getting those names correct) was remarkabley attentive. They found out that we were heading up to Green Bay for the game for my dad's birthday, and went all out to make it a top notch experience. They even capped off the night with a complimentary dessert and round of cocktails.
The food was great, but the service is what will make all of us reccomend MO's to anyone visiting Milwaukee.
Thanks for a great night!

Best restaurant ever! The service has been impeccable. The bartenders shake your hand, introduce themselves and ask/remember your name. The valet staff goes above and beyond-we once parked three blocks away and the valet was willing to go get our vehicle in the pouring rain! The waygu is worth the money and the pepper jack Mac and cheese is to die for! Highly recommended!!

Great food, the steaks are always excellent, perfectly cooked and with high quality ingredients. Service is good and if there is some issue (e.g. delay) they solve it immediately in the best possible way. We are guests at Mo's, not only customers.

I was more than pleasantly surprised by Mo's. We ate here because it was close to the Riverside Theater, but loved the food, and will be back again. The meal started with lobster ceviche. Our main courses include filet mignon, crab legs and scallops. The steak was tender and well seasoned, and the crab legs were great. if I had any criticism, maybe it would be the scallops. They were mediocre. Beyond the meat, the sides were wonderful, too. We had a double baked potato, truffle fries, and brussel sprouts.

An added bonus....while the food was upscale, as was the restaurant, it had a Wisconsin supper club feel, which was fun.

I can't wait to go back.

Fantastic personalized service. Equally Fantastic selection of steaks. Ask to see the meat tray to get a sense of what each option looks like. We were eating light so we had the 4 oz. Filet which was good, but we would probably opt for a ribeye or upgrade to the higher grade next time. I also got the two bacon wrapped scallops that were outstanding. The sides are very generous and need to be shared by two. The chocolate chip cookie dessert is made fresh and served warm, soft, alamode, and drizzled with warm chocolate — perfect for two. Drinks are a bit pricey. Atmosphere is upscale and elegant with friendly servers who treat you like personal friends. Located on the corner next to the Riverside Theater, it is the perfect before or after place. Although we live over 150 Miles South, we would gladly return to eat here again.

Not only is this place a great place for dining but the staff is extremely attentive to your needs and wishes. Wonderful pre theater dining spot and again, the staff watches out for your timing in regards to the theater. I will go back whenever I can!!!!

A friend and I had a lovely meal at Mo's tonight. All aspects of the meal exceeded our expectations. The steak was prepared perfectly and both side dishes were delicious and shareable. The 4 oz. filet was the perfect size. We'll certainly be back. Service was well-timed and pleasant.

THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST EXPERIENCES I HAVE HAD DINING OUT. THE FOOD WAS TRULY DELICIOUS BUT IT WAS THE SERVICE THAT STOOD OUT. WE WERE CELEBRATING BIRTHDAYS AND
FROM THE MOMENT WE WALKED IN THE DOOR TO THE MOMENT WE LEFT WE WERE TREATED LIKE
ROYALTY. FROM THE HOSTESS TO OUR WAIT STAFF TO THE VALET, IT WAS AN EXPERIENCE I WILL NOT FORGET. IF YOU WANT TO BE PAMPERED AT DINNER, THIS IS THE SPOT FOR YOU!

My wife and I enjoyed the best steak we've ever had. Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious. A great find in downtown Milwaukee. Our apartment is in Lake Bluff, Illinois, about a 50 minute drive, but we might go there again for dinner. Service was excellent as well.

By far one of the best steak joints that we have eaten. From the appetizers, shrimp cocktail and bacon wrapped scallops, to the most tender and delicious melt in your mouth filet mignons, to the decadent desserts. Great ambiance and the most friendly and attentive staff.

Mo's is definitely a great place to dine! We especially enjoy a meal there prior to attending an event at the Riverside Theater. These two venues are wonderful destinations on their own, but really benefit from close proximity to each other. As always, service at Mo's is professional yet very friendly. The filet mignon was very tender and flavorful, which is hard to do properly since I prefer it well done. Sicilian chicken was moist and flavorful. Delightfully fresh green salads and homemade breads and butter began the meal and it was only uphill from there. While Mo's is a little pricey, we have always found it worth the money. Can't wait to return!
