Best spot! Never taken anyone who didn’t love it
Great food, beautiful restaurant
I had eaten here previously and the food and service was much better than my recent experience. The waiter took my order from the other side of our table did not hear me correctly and put the wrong order in. The kitchens attempt to speed up my meal ended in disaster and the pasta was way under cooked and mostly stuck together. I travel to Italy often, and I am aware of Al Dente but this was not the case. I was very disappointed in the food and experience.
Waited a bit long for our reservation. But food and ambiance always great
Great all around
I hate doing these reviews but I have to say our meal the other night for my wife’s birthday celebration was nothing short of outstanding!! In every catagory.
I hope to be back soon
We had a wonderful evening at MAMO. Friendly greeting and coat check before heading up to have a drink at the bar. Again very pleasant bartender and nice bar. They do the multiple waiter thing that seems to becoming more popular. We had at least three different people waiting on us through the night. Dinner was delish as was desert.
We celebrated our anniversary in New York City, returning to one of our favorite restaurants MAMO. They have adjusted their price fixe menu since our last visit last year, but the food was still delicious! We learned that after our last visit, there was a fire, and were so happy to hear that they were able to reopen after doing complete reconstruction on their restaurant. Our server was delightful, cocktails delicious, and the food is some of the best in the city! My BF had the salmon, and I had the chicken. We have the most amazing dessert to complete our meal, which was served with a shot of lemoncello.
Really nicer server and host
The other female server was attentive, on point and efficient. The male server we had was slow, inattentive, genuinely needed to be reminded three times to follow up on our entree order which was part of the prix fix (so the fault is NOT with the kitchen). He also needed reminding to bring plates, drink refreshing and a silverware change/replacement. Being involved in the restaurant business myself I was compelled to leave a 20% tip but it was the first time in my career I was tempted to leave less. Additionally, the owner was present but did not address his lack of general service so, perhaps there is a personal relationship there - either way, it shouldn't have negatively impacted our experience as patrons. I have eaten all around the world and this was by far and away the slowest most lackluster server I have ever experienced. I love a good slow, languid meal but this was astonishingly bad.
The milnese was big but overcooked and the side salad too small. The pasta and apetize delicious.
The place too loud
The owner and people amazing. They gave us the best table as my guy is 6.5 and it was not too loud as the rest of the salon.
Waiters 10 pts. as same as ambiance
Creative cooking style. A lot of fish choice.
Taste is good.
Surprise that you do not have calamari though.
Service is good and attentive and courteous.
Great birthday dinner for a friend! The food was delicious, and the service was attentive and hospitable. Can't wait to go back.
The food was great, but the service was extremely unattentive, nothing friendly and inviting. But to save the night, the manager was gracious, apologetic.
A friendly, cozy, intimate but a high energy place that has truly one of the best truffle pizzas and truffle raviolinis in the world. It’s always a great experience no matter the reason I go there for.
Live in the soho neighborhood and was looking forward to trying Mamo. Beautiful atmosphere and ambiance. Service, however, was awful. We were defiantly assigned more than one waitress and neither knew if the other had attended, so neither rarely came by. The wine was wrong. Dessert was impossible to order because we couldn’t get the waitress attention so we finally just decided to skip it. Upon leaving, they had lost our coats in the coat check even though we provided our tickets. After a while of searching, they were found. We walked home considering it an over all disappointing evening.
Had really high hopes, but service was so lack-lustre. Why were all the service staff in such a bad mood? Including what looked like the manager - plates thrown down, no attention. Very amateurish. More cafe culture, don't risk here if you're looking for a place to go for a special occasion / smart lunch or dinner.
I rarely write reviews but I was moved to do so because of the fantastic experience we had at MAMO. The place is beautiful, the food was delicious and a good value, and the staff could not have been nicer and more accommodating. It’s quiet enough to carry on a conversation and the background music selection was perfect. All the little touches (complimentary starters, a sparkler in the dessert to recognize the birthday we were celebrating, etc.) just contributed to the great time we had. The menu is extensive without being overwhelming, and everything we ordered was top notch. The portions are very generous. We will definitely be back, and I’ve already recommended it to several friends.
This is my fourth time at Mamo and is one of my favorite spots in the city. I’ve spent anniversaries here and celebrated birthdays here as well. The service is always impeccable whenever I come. Looking forward to my next date, I’ll bring the children again next time.
4 out of 5 dishes were good. i ordered the veal- tasted like cardboard. no flavor at all. waitress was a robot and couldn't care less that we were there. felt rushed and pressured to order more food and wine to secure more of a tip. good for tourists but locals should run in the other direction. indicated it was my daughters birthday dinner, requested a chocolate dessert and NOTHING!!!! amateur service at best. management needs to wake up.
Forgot our starters order
Superbe, plats équilibrés avec une bonne quantité! Ambiance très haut niveau.
Excellent overall, feel seating is a bit too tight and noisy
If seating can be spread out a bit it will be perfect .
Loved it!! Food was awesome! And service was great!
4 friends all celebrating a BIG Birthday year had a great meal at MAMO this weekend. It was hard to get rezzies - very busy! Service was great at first, but by the time we got our main courses it definitely was not as good - had to ask for wine and water refills, black pepper, etc. first courses were all really good, 3 out of the 4 entrees were great too. The lobster stuffed ravioli was a disappointment, and it's not cheap. I thought the chicken was amazing! Wine list has some reasonable offerings and great mix of European and US wines. Great atmosphere and very nice staff! I'd give it 5 stars if the service didn't slow down and our ravioli was better!
Met with family visiting from Brazil. The food, service, and atmosphere were top notch
Always Perfect, Carming host & staff, excellent food & service! A must whenever we are in NYC
We came here for restaurant week and it did not disappoint. The food was very good with great ambiance and service.
The wine selection was expensive, but we really enjoyed it. All three of us enjoyed the dishes that we had selected
Came during a restaurant week with some colleagues to have lunch. Tuna Crudo was very good; branzino was prepared nicely, but I felt that the fish was frozen. Tiramisu desert was amazing!
Restaurant wasn’t busy, and the service was great.
Great restaurant! Slightly too quiet for my liking, but the service is fantastic and the food is decent especially the appetizers. Their steak was well cooked but the plating was just a little off, but overall it was a good experience.
Just love MAMO. Truffle Ravioli a must! Black Cod is my fav. Their menu is always changing with wonderful scrumptious choices!
The entire staff is the absolute best... they are all happy and you can see they love working for Michael... a delightful dining experience in NYC
The service was SO slow!!! We will not go back even though we love the food and the ambience.
The food was incredible, the ambience was perfect for a date night, and service was very friendly and accommodating.
Restaurant week courses were really small
