Love the atmosphere inside & out. We sat out because it was a beautiful night. Wait service was attentive although not seasoned. Wine was way overpriced but appetizer-clams oregano was very good. Salad was excellent and presented well. Chicken Arta & Eggplant Rollitini was very good. The Chilean Sea Bass was disappointing. Think it was too thick. All in all we love this upscale restaurant

This has been our go to place in thr warmer weather for years.
A beautiful setting usually but the lovely patio was fully covered for an upcoming event, pretty much eliminated the outdoor experience we came for.
Food was well prepared and spaced perfectly. Service is alwaus a strong point and remains so.

Food and service was excellent. Exterior and “outdoor dining” area need a little “sprucing up” in order to get 5 stars!

Good meal, excellent service. But, they don’t know how to make a French Martini and had only two dessert offerings , no ice cream and no artificial sweetener available.

Another wonderful meal at our favorite restaurant. Parpadella Ragu was excellent as was the Lamb Shank. To top it off Alberto was there to make sure the meal and service was equally good. Well done all around.

Went for dinner after golf. At 6pm we were the only ones in the restaurant. A 2 piece combo played at 7pm. we listened for 20 or 30 minutes then left, still the only 2 in the place.
However, the food was terrific and great ambiance set back in the woods.
Wonderful evening

I've been here before and it has been historically pretty good so let me say that right off the bat. They were not on their game service-wise on Easter Sunday. the food was fine but took well over an hour to arrive despite the restaurant being half empty. When we finally asked for an update the host joked with us instead of trying to investigate. We had to request water refills no less than 5 times despite having a dedicated waiter upstairs who was only servicing 2 tables. Really bizarre for a restaurant that has a great reputation. Not sure if i will go back any time soon which stinks because it is one of the only finer dining places around.

As always Momentos never disappoints. Today we me and wifey split the Wagyu Carpaccio appetizer for 2 ( 26.00 ) and boy did it rock. I had the dry aged filet mignon on the bone ( 59.00 ) with a side of Brussels sprouts phenomenal and my wife had the Dover sole table side filet by non other than the owner Labbi she loved it. Dessert we had the pistachio torte with riccota cheese. All in all great experience

Terrible service and poor quality food. I understand this was due to much of their experienced staff being redeployed at another sister restaurant that just opened. However, it was a very poor choice to presumably send all of the experienced staff there other than a handful of folks that were scrambling to keep everything in order while training new staff. Food was generally under seasoned and dry. A friend had one of the worst steaks he ever had which was so sinewy and chewy it was hard to cut. When one of the more senior staff saw this he was so embarrassed and promptly confirmed it would be taken off the bill. The first waiter we had repeatedly kept leaving mid order and telling us to “just wait a minute” and had a lot of trouble with simply taking drink and app orders. When one of the more senior staff saw this he jumped in and served us...

All in all, not a good experience, poor food and will not be recommending or returning.

Overall it was an OK restaurant and hasn't changed for me since the last time we were there. The food can be hit and miss. Most of the food this time was good, everyone else liked theirs but my entree was terrible. I have to learn to send food back. Ambiance is good, service is very good. We were there on a cold day and the ice outside on the walkway was terrible. My friend fell and hit his head on the cement walkway. So far... he's ok.

We dine at Momento's often. Now run by Labi and his wife, members of the Dautaj family, service here is always gracious and attentive. Labi has hit his stride and his passion for the business is obvious. At our most recent visit we had the pappardelle with filet mignon cubes, which was excellent. The oysters, offered as a special appetizer, were accompanied with crabmeat. We shared the avocado salad, also excellent, and nicely split for us onto separate plates. The chef has done a fine job with a variety of offerings to suit all tastes and we have not been disappointed on any of our recent visits.

We had a fantastic experience
For starters we did the kumamoto oysters with their signature cocktail sauce and topped with crab meat a little pricey 3$ per oyster but they were as fresh as can be.
We shared a table side classic Caesar with raddichio another hit.
For entrees we had the papardelle filet mignon ragu & the Chilean Sea bass with pine nuts and pistachio both out of this world.
Finished the night with a creambrulle cheese cake.
We were here a couple of months back and all I can say is this placed stepped there game up!

We had a 6 30 reservation and didn't see our waiter for 20 min, with another 20 to get water and menus. Then they ran out of the special that 2 people at the table had already ordered. We finally got our good closer to 8 pm, didn't see our waitress till the check came though 2 now ppl had stopped by to offer water and asked about our food. There were 5 wait staff covering 15 tables, averaging 4 ppl at each. Then we got the check, which would have been fine with good service but it was a bit of insult to injury. I don't think we'll be back for dinner with friends. Food - menu options ordered were good as usual, but my branzino special was overly dry, clearly having spent time under a heat lamp. Disappointing.

Delicious dinner accompanied with Montepulciano wine: Osso Buco, stuffed Pork Chop, Grilled Branzino.
The Appetizers were copious, I had the creamy Burrata!And they also bring hors d’œuvres to the table while you choose from the extensive menu and specials!
We managed to taste the desserts too. We had a great 2 hours dinner and didn’t feel like we had eaten that much.
Can’t wait for the DJ in the summer... But for now go and enjoy the fire place and beautiful dining room where every guest feels special.

Everyone’s food was great, and the portions were generous. One of the diners had a dairy allergy, and the chef was very accommodating. Some of the dishes we had were crab cakes, calamari, wedge salad, lobster ravioli, and rigatoni Bolognese We were all too full to look at the dessert menu.
