Place was dirty and we were the first customers in for lunch. For example, windowsills had not be dusted in who knows how long-full of cobwebs on the inside. The floor literally had dirt on it. Several plates on the table was dirty. Food was just ok-probably because the condition of the restaurant didn't make the food very appealing. For the price of the food, I expected a clean, nice place.

When we arrived for our reservation the pizza oven wasn’t hot enough to make pizza, which we were not told until 45 minutes after we ordered. We then changed our orders and the food was mediocre. It took us two hours to get a semi-decent meal. There was no offer of compensation.

Pizza and Dimoda burger were tasty and perfectly cooked and served!

Unfortunately they ran out of wine 🍷 somehow so I could not enjoy with my meal!

Quran did great for first day he just needs to relax and go with the Flow!

No problem getting a table as no one was in the place. That said, and as nice as our server was, we had to wait a long time to get our drink order in. Once placed, we had to wait again for our drinks to arrive. Not sure why the service was so slow when there was only one other table of four in the room with us. When we ordered our food,one of our guests was deciding on two different dishes. Our waitress said they were out of both items. Very disappointing and embarrassing. Also, very small portions when our food arrived. The drinks were made well, thank goodness!

Loved it! First time of many more to come. Only disappointing thing was that they were out of a few menu items. But that didn’t ruin our experience. Definitely will be back soon.

Nice to see the space used as it is with the change from The lowlands Group. Very good value for what you get. A few things... Guinness was ice cold and the beer glass was chilled. The one beer where that really isn’t necessary. The tiramisu tasted good but was served mostly frozen/deep cold. And we ordered our daughter off the kids menu spaghetti and meatballs. It was served with no meatballs and we had to ask. One large one came out and our 4 year old was happy. Now... even with all that, the pizza was fantastic. We will for sure be back and make sure that we order appropriately.

Our waitress seemed unhappy to be working here, or working at all!! She didn’t smile or said Thank you. She was very impolite. When we asked for the drinks menu she showed us what was listed on the brunch menu. Than we asked what kind of beer they had, and she said you want a beer menu?!
Maybe she isn’t happy to work here, I don’t know!
There’s plenty of places to eat around Milwaukee, I won’t return with a service like this.
The rest of waitresses seem nice!
Pizza was amazing.

The cesar salad being served as heads of lettuce on a board is not a salad. Very disappointed. The croutons had no crunch and might as well be soggy.

Absolutely horrible service. I think my server was high. I had to ask for a refill on my drink twice. She would stand behind us and asked us to hand her our plates. The weird thing is she didn't ask for them she just stood there. She approached us with so much uncertainty, for example didn't know where to place a drink. The food took forever and we think it's because the server forgot to enter it. And the thing was we were her only table... on a Friday night. It was dead. Pizza was pretty tasty but honestly I could make that you know? My friend got the spaghetti and she said the meatballs were disgusting. Would never recommend anyone to ever go here! Pizza Shuttle would do you wayyyy better! Also ashamed because it was my birthday, I mentioned that in our reservation, and nothing was done or acknowledge? I guess the server was too high to read it. Such a shame.

Worst service ever. First it took forever for waitress to come to our table and she said that her and the other waitress went nack n forth over whose table we were. Ordered an appetizer which was pretty good. 35 minutes later the waitress tells us my boyfriend's sandwhich is ready, but my pizza isn't and she wasnt sure how long it would be, but did i want an appetizer in the house. I ordereded an app and they left my boyfriend's food in the window for another 12 minutes because i could see it. When she brought his meatball sandwhich it was rock hard and fries were cold and hard as well. We asked for more water and she never brought it. 15 minutes later she brings my pizza and it is luke warm so i finally spoke with the manager. Service was horrible he took care of the whole bill but we didnt even eat anything, but the appetizers were were just so turned off to be there so long and have such crappy service.

The building is very nice. We sat in the first main room half booth half table seating. It took our server a while to get back to us after taking our drink order. In fact, we had to summon the server. The fragrance used in the ladies room wafted out into the dining area, not good. We were the first seated in the room and the next table was sat right behind us, and suddenly we had to raise our voices to hear each other. The creamy mushroom and polenta was delicious! The prices were very reasonable. It’s such a great venue, but the attention to service seemed weak. It is possible I’m not your demographic, being 60+. Sincere best wishes for your success. Your location is super.

Our first visit since opening at the site of a popular restaurant. One of the request for less pasta and usual sauce was not honored which led to an unpleasant dish.
Will revisit in future

Service was very poor Server looked mad and annoyed the entire time. Wasn’t very busy but Asked her about some of the food choices and she said she didn’t know because she doesn’t eat it. Also there were gnats and fleas all over the place and surrounding us. We asked if they could turn the outdoor fans on or a citronella torch they had outside to possibly help but server said none of them work and didnt offer to move inside or change tables or any sort of solution or compensation Food was mediocre and pricey

The food and ambiance at DiModa was great! I had a big celebrating my birthday with me and they were very accommodating. The patio was awesome. Everyone was happy with their food and the service. I ate the Wild Mushroom Ragout, which was extremely good. I would strongly recommend DiModa, and I plan to go back soon.

Dimoda is a great place to grab some drinks and a meal!
It looks super small, but opens up into something surprisingly large as it were owned by Willie Wonka himself.
We had a wide variety of food, and everyone enjoyed their dishes. The pizzas are flavorful and creative, the drinks tasty and potent, and the deserts delicious.
Service was attentive and we will definitely be back!
(We loved sitting in their outdoor area)

We had been to DiModa a couple other times for different gatherings and enjoyed the food and the atmosphere, so we invited some friends to try it out as well. They loved it and our service was terrific. They have a great outdoor patio which is quiet and perfect for a warm summer evening.

The pizzas were inventive and very tasty. The set up was fine and service was good. Main issue we had was that they did not sign us in to Open Table even after I had said we had reservation (was not busy at the time). We ended up getting a rude letter Open Table saying we had missed the reservation and it impacts restaurant's business, when, in fact, it was failure of restaurant to indicate that reservation was completed.

Very, very marginal food. Trocadaro, which was there previous, was far better.
Nothing at this restaurant we experienced was anything to come back for.
