Excellent experience! Waitstaff was excellent and attentive, even though I was dining solo. Food was exceptional — pretty sure the kale / brussels sprout salad is the best salad I've eaten. Steak was done to perfection, and the accompanying bone marrow butter was outstanding.

Five stars all around. Highly recommend.

Food is amazing! The menu selection is exceptional for a steakhouse. I tend to lean toward seafood and they had a very well balanced menu of all options. Service was wonderful and adjusted to you. There was not a feeling of being rushed or ignored. The Wagyu beef is a MUST have....amazing!

We went for my fiancé’s birthday and it was very subpar. We had been 3 years before and it was wonderful, we also frequent their sister restaurant, Sorellina, and love it. The service was good but felt a bit rushed— we did go on my fiancé’s actual birthday which was a Monday which can be a hard day for everyone— although it was pretty crowded.

Regarding the food, do not order the shrimp and the other cold water shellfish because they are very fishy in taste. I had the filet with gulf shrimp and the shrimp was extremely fishy (compared to fresh) for $24. My steak was a bit charred on the outside as well.

I am not one to send back anything, but when he asked about the shrimp I just said I didn’t love it— so they comped it. Unfortunately them comping it meant they didn’t comp the desert they sent out for my fiancé’s birthday.

Summary: shellfish isn’t fresh and they don’t cover desert for special occasion.

Easily the best meal I've ever had. My wife and I went here for our 1 year anniversary and the staff was beyond attentive and accommodating, even producing a menu that Saud happy anniversary on it. It's a pricey restaurant but well worth the money.

Thanksgiving dinner = Gringo in Jalisco cocktail, Caviar, Grade a3 Wagyu steak, Fois gras, Mooo flight, Glass Ampuis red wine, Banana Foster. Best meal in 50 years in Boston!!
Was chilly for the first hour, then better. I called the next day to find that there was maybe something wrong with heat. Fortunately I had a coat to wear but my steak got cool.
Loved it!!

We were greates and seated quickly which is great. Our waiter was amazing but a bit in the slower side. A little over 3 hours for our family of 4 to dine without any appetizers.
My steak was cooked perfectly however my sons was overcooked and my husbands not cooked enough.
Overall a good experience.

My husband and I went for his birthday dinner and it was a lovely evening from start to finish. Damien was very knowledgeable about the different cuts of beef and help guide us through the menu and recommended some house favorites (beef wellington - AMAZING!). We also loved the Mooo flight of four side dishes which complimented our entrees beautifully. All the staff were very attentive and friendly throughout the evening. We will definitely return the next time we are in Boston.

This is complicated.

The service was outstanding - really excellent (except as noted below). The food was good, but not as glorious as some reviewers seem to have thought. I felt like they are no longer doing anything particularly creative here, that basically they had some interesting approaches that they developed way back when and have stuck with them. It all felt very early 2000s to me. But the food was good.

For example, I really wanted the beef Wellington. I love that dish, and It’s hard to cook. It was good, but I really had to think about it afterward. They add a layer of spinach. Spinach is basically green water. Water is the enemy of a successful beef Wellington. They pulled it off by lifting the dough up high. But why? It’s like saying it’s not enough to run the Boston Marathon, you have to do it with a refrigerator strapped to your back. The real thing is actually better.

The value proposition is not good. I expect that at steak houses. But the mark up on some of the booze was absurd - like well over 5x. Which brings me to my chief complaint. They have two menus on their website, one in the normal place where it says “menu,” and the other in a pop up that says “reopening menu.” I have no clue when it “reopened” much less that it was ever closed in the first place. I ignore website pop-ups. Generally it’s a marketing gimmick to get you to sign up for something So I went straight to the regular menu, where the prices are around. 20% less than on the other menu. Of course it’s the higher prices they actually charge. That’s just wrong. The restaurant needs to get its act together and publish one accurate, current menu.

Visited for my husband’s birthday and the service was fantastic, everything about our experience was exceptional. It’s been a long time since I’ve been to a restaurant where the staff were so thoughtful and attentive, everyone we interacted with wished my husband a happy birthday and it made his night. Definitely look forward to coming back again soon, thanks to our server Sergio also - he was great!

Everyone at Mooo made our 1 anniversary very special. We were greeted very warmly and our awesome server was very helpful and even took amazing pictures of us at the end. The manager was very sweet and checked in on use they even printed out special menus specifically for our anniversary.

Now to the good. Amazing! We both ordered the beef Wellington and it was so tender and flavorful. We finished with their banana’s foster and it was to die for. Both dishes mentioned are very generous portions so come hungry.

We will definitely be back, hopefully sooner than later.

I just finished up my 30th birthday dinner at Mooo. I was so excited to finally get to try this place out! Unfortunately it did not live up to my expectations. While our waiter was great, the food and drinks truly missed the mark. The drinks were so weak, it was like I was only having a mixer. The steaks were VERY disappointing. I have never experienced what I witnessed tonight. My husband didn’t get to have dinner because of it. His first steak was so rare when he first got it. They attempted to fix it, but it only came out worse. It was charred to death on the outside, yet just as rare on the inside. They offered to cook another steak for him, mind you all of us were done eating at this point. This steak came out more raw than the first. How does this happen?! This is suppose to be the top steak house in Boston?! Beg to differ. I will be taking a break from steak houses for a while. Very disappointed. Do yourself a favor and spend your money elsewhere.
