We were trying to make reservations to Mojo for awhile as they don’t take reservations for the same day even if you try to book in the morning. I really wanted to try their chicken with rice. It was very tasty but the sauce on top was salty.
Churrasco was okay with chimichurri.
Appetizers were good we had shrimp toast and Spanish kebabs
We should have ordered wine instead sangria

Finally got around to visiting Mojo and we can’t believe we waited this long! Service and food were amazing!!! Eli was helpful in making our drinks and food selection and overall had a great, energetic attitude. Portions were perfect and you can do without appetizers, but the seafood appetizer was definitely a plus. Drink combinations were perfect and strong. We definitely will be returning!

The food and music was amazing. The only complaint I has was when I made the reservation it was my friends birthday. I told the hostess and the waitress when they bought out dessert to do the lighting and singing. I had to remind them. The cake came out plain. There was a disconnect in communicating the request. I would go back.

I'm torn because this place has a lot of potential. I gave it three stars because most of the food was worth 3.5-4 stars but they gave 2 star service. Not sure if it was because they were understaffed but they seemed to have a decent amount of Bus people to clear the tables and bring water but it took us a little over 45 minutes to get our food. Met up with some family so we tried to patiently wait but after looking around a lot of people next to us we're saying the same thing trying To eye down their waiter to ask them what's going on, as they too we're waiting a long time for their food. The waiters, and servers did not appear to be on the same page because after the 45 minutes the waiter came up to us and asked if we were ready for dessert. When we told him our food hadn't come to his credit he ran to the kitchen to find out what went wrong. He brought up me and my girlfriends order but it seemed he forgot about My cousin and her husbands order (or got distracted with someone/something else in the time it took him to go back to the kitchen a second time) because we waited another ten minutes and we had to flag him down again to ask him where their food was. He ran back again and came back in ten min. When all of the food arrived my girlfriend's Salmon was undercooked but we no longer had the patience to ask them to recook it. The "Down the Hatch" ceviche was amazing and I ordered the Pernil which was a little dry but otherwise well presented and tasty. The ambiance of this place is great, the drinks are tasty and it has a lot of potential. I'd be open to trying it again but I really hope the service improves. The previous venue this was "Exo Cafe" had similar issues. Good food but service was not that good. Not sure if it's the dynamics of being a two floor venue but I really hope they improve this as I would really like to like this place.

It's loud, but you can have a conversation. It's gotnsex appeal but it's not clubby. The food is excellent, especially the appetizers.

The only thing is there are a ton of restaurants in the area with this kind of food so it is on the pricy side.

Loved the ambiance of the place. I had the steak sirloin lunch with eggs and potatoes and I loved it. The two Frozé drinks I had were delicious and it was happy hour so they were just 6$ each!!So overall I will be coming back to Mojo!!

Amazing food and amazing service. The location is ideal and the ambiance is inviting. I would definitely go back for this upscale Spanish food with the arroz con pollo being one of the best I’ve ever had!

I went with my family and the salmon lack flavor, the calamari was crispy but tasteless.
Fruit salad was really good made with fresh fruit.

Literally the poorest service ever experienced. The staff was plentiful and nice, but the entire operation is so poorly run that I feel for the wait staff. We had a 5:30pm reservation, and “too busy” was the company excuse line. I hope management reads this and learns something.

Didn’t like anything about it and would not be inclined to return nor recommend this place. The menu needs a makeover and they definitely need servers that are less uptight and can multitask or maybe get more servers

I went to Mojo with my friends for my birthday-3 couples.
Restaurant experience was good, pros and cons to the dinner.
Restaurant ambiance was nice, music was good and good crowd. Should be cooler (don’t think the air conditioning was working)
Food was good, just small portions for the price, but definitely tasty.
Service was good too, fairly friendly and pretty quick.
I only wouldn’t recommend not because it was a bad restaurant in any way, but just because it was “ok”.
Still overall a positive experience thank you

I love this place, the food is amazing and so is the ambiance. They could turn down the music a little, but only to encourage conversation, not because it's bad! This was my second time at Mojo and I will say the sangria was significantly weaker and sweeter this time around - I'll be switching to cocktails next time.

We ordered appetizers: guacamole and chicken taquitos that were both phenomenal.
the drinks were tasty and enough alcohol plus not super overpriced.

It;s still brand new. after the kinks out possibly with a few menu changes. And adding Brunch. It's sure to be as popular as EXO was. Loved our waiter he was there when it was EXO. Missing Mark who had been a PT Bartender for ages.

Was looking forward to trying this place out. Made reservations for brunch, got there and was told because a game is on there is no brunch menu and offered me the bar menu. Highly disappointed. Will try again for dinner

Last Friday evening it took over an hour for our food to arrive because the kitchen was very backed up... we only ordered chicken and rice and steak. There seemed to be a lot of disorganization, but the manager tried to make it up to us by offering a free dessert or round of drinks. That was nice, but I'm not sure why the kitchen was so behind since the place began to clear out pretty early...

The noise level was almost painful, even after asking for a quiet table. With a loud bar scene on the second level, and the upstairs dining room located in an open atrium, the sound was overwhelming and made it almost impossible to have a conversation. Drinks arrived quickly, but the appetizers took awhile to be served. The Down the Hatch cerviche was amazing - shrimp, calamari, scallops and catfish in a spicy lime juice with fried calamari, toasted corn and plantain chips - and was worth the wait. The Macho Marino seafood entree was fresh and very tasty, served in a rich sofrito sauce, but since the kitchen couldn't get the side dishes right, no yuca fries were served. Churrasco, a grilled skirt steak with rice and beans, was well prepared, but again, the replacement side dish was not delivered. While the food was impressive overall, the lack of attention to special requests and the unpleasant atmosphere would make me think twice about returning again.
