A pleasant mean and set of cocktails. So glad this place is open again, following months of being closed because of Covid-19. Staff is great, ambiance is pleasant.

Food was OK... appetizers were great...my wife enjoyed her flounder tacos...my dish, the seafood stew was bland. The server did offer complementary dessert to make up for it. I would give them another chance though.

Very accommodating to our large party (15). The server suggested small plates so we could talk and enjoy ourselves without having to worry about the menu. Food was great. Hot wings are hotttt.

Everything was great but we felt a little rushed by the staff - the server asked if we were finished with something three times even though there was still food on the plate or liquid in the glass. And the main courses came out not long after the small plates. But we took our time anyway, and the experience was excellent overall.

Atmosphere was perfectly fine.
Service was par (mainly because of my issue with the food and it was never addressed)
Food was below okay to me.

I've been here once before and I ordered the shrimp sandwich which was actually great no issues.
Yesterday I ordered the Japchae which is outside of my normal meal, but had a lot of ingredients that I love so I figured i'd try it. Definitely was not what I had expected (Not really sure what I was expecting tbh) I just couldn't stomach it (mainly due to the texture and the stems I kept getting in my mouth) so I just let it sit there, I didn't want to complain and I didn't need another dish I was perfectly fine going without.

However the server never one time addressed this or even asked if I enjoyed the dish or what I thought about anything. He clearly saw that I took like 5 bites and it was a very full bowl when he took it away yet no investigation? Not a huge deal just figured it was worth sharing.

Went in with my significant other on Valentine’s Day. We had been once before for a birthday so chose to return. This time it was disappointing. Our server was very friendly however, the entree we ordered was the seafood stew as it was a cold night. Huge let down. The scallops and shrimp were still cold and muscles too tough and chewy. Probably won’t go back.

Husband and I went here for Valentine's Day. Our server was Cheyenne who was great. Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We made a dinner out of the snacks and small plates. The brussels sprouts and dumplings were our favorites but we liked everything we got.

Came in for lunch on a Saturday. Only about 3 or 4 tables were occupied, yet service still took forever. Waited about 15 minutes before I was offered water or a drink option.

For the price, the food is ok. The menu options and choices looked delicious and had me excited. The food just seemed moderate though. Had the dumplings and a bowl and would not pay the price for either.

The appetizers (chicken wontons) were great but I wasn't a big fan of my entree. I got the Brussel Sprouts with chicken and there was nothing good about it. They were not cooked and were hard on the inside.... I make them at home quite often and even my bf said the ones I make are much better..
He got the short ribs and said his was very good and that my choice of dish just was incorrect so in-case you want to get the brussel sprouts, please re-consider.

The flavors deliver! The very best fish tacos with carrots I would eat daily. Subtle acid, crunch and soft all rolled up in a dish that should be shared. Popcorn tofu and cauliflower would should be served in movies. Wait staff welcoming and on the spot with their service. Go!

We visited MOFU Shoppe without knowing what to expect for the vegan options, and were pleasantly surprised. Our server was very friendly and helpful - they knew what vegan meant and help us with our inquiries and gave recommendations. A few things were already vegan, and a few others could easily be veganized. Everything we tried was delicious. We will definitely go back and hope to see even more vegan options offered in the future.

We are a group of very senior retired men. The noise level was so high we were totally unable to visit we each other at all. The entire meal was eaten in silence.

Other than that the food was very unique and very good. Interesting but expensive wine list.

Good time but would not recommend it for senior folk that want to have time together.
