Went to Mooo to celebrate my husband and I's wedding anniversary. We started out with the beef dumplings which neither of us have had before. I loved it where my husband would've preferred it with less sauce. (He's not a man to add any kind of sauce to anything!) For main course I ordered the Australian Ribeye and my husband has the Pineland Farms Prime Ribeye. Both were cooked to perfection and tasted amazing. For sides we had broccoli and the Kabocha squash puree. Delicious! Would def recommend this restaurant!

My wife and I split the 3 1/2 lbs broiled lobster. It was very tasty but not what we expected. Our waitress was fabulous and she made our celebratory dinner special. I definitely would recommend Mooo to my friends but I will advise them that it can become very loud when seated by large groups.

Five nights in Boston and five different restaurants. Mooo was the best. Nice cocktail
choices as well as an extensive wine list - both bottles and by the glass. Food ingredients
are the freshest, and the beef, our choice (what else would you order at a restaurant called
Mooo), was outstanding. Steaks were high quality and couldn't have been prepared for
our order any better. Mooo is on the expensive side but well worth it, in my estimation,
for what you get.

We found the food to be severely overrated.

$65 ribeye had more fat on it that it did meet. I understand marbling, but give me a break, that steak was ridiculous.

Our waiter was absolutely clueless, did not know his menu, or much else.

For what we paid your expected much better food and better service.

Ok, I want to be 100% fair here. There was nothing majorly wrong with our dinner at Mooo. Lets starts with the good parts. The service was awesome, our server was kind, funny, helpful and very professional. I have worked in find dining restaurants for 25 years, I would be happy to have a server as good as he was working for me anytime. The hostesses where kind and seemed happy to see us. Now the not so good parts. I ordered a bottle of wine and after about fifteen min the waiter comes back and says that they are redoing the wine cellar and the sommelier is having trouble finding the wine I wanted. Ok that happens not a huge deal, but then the sommelier never comes to the table to recommend anything else, to say ohh sorry etc. The waiter comes back and recomneds another bottle, fine not a big deal but trust me much better to send the sommelier. We ordered two apps the bone marrow and escargot. Bot taste good, but are way overpriced, one bone of marrow costs under a dollar, some bread and garlic..21 bucks. Steaks are find both ordered mid-rare both come out closer to med, again not a huge deal. So all in all nothing horrible, but never a wow moment, and once you get the bill you wish you had picked another place. Also the decor is really bad, our table looked like it had been rescued from a drive bar, fake wood top etc. I get the feeling the staff is trying hard but whoever makes the big calls had taken there eye off the ball. For these prices you need a wow, no wow at Mooo

This type of experience is sort of stuck in the past. The prices are very high. 2 strong points : amazing wine selection and you can hear your guest during dinner. But overall, I don't recommend because it's too pricy for the experience. At this price range (150$ / person before wine) I'm expecting a memorable and innovative experience.

This is our 4th trip to Mooo as we try to come every time were in Boston. The restaurant had a strong barn smell this time which was off putting. Rolls were cold. House wedge and lobster bisque were amazing. Son ate two orders of the wagyu dumplings which he loved. A5 wagyu steak overpriced but delish. Desserts mediocre. Room for improvement for prices.

I was visiting from out of town and wanted to enjoy a steakhouse for the evening. I also wanted something different than the Capital Grille, Del Friscos.... so I gave Mooo a shot. I had reservations for the dining room but ended up eating at the bar which serves the full menu. I enjoyed every piece of my experience. The service was exceptional and welcoming. The food was also top notch. I had the lobster bisque, surf and turf, and then the lemon cheesecake topped with blueberry sauce. I enjoyed every moment of my meal including the conversations with the staff and adjacent company. I would highly recommend Mooo if you're looking for a great steak dinner.

Went to Mooo with my wife for an anniversary dinner and we were not disappointed. The staff was very attentive and professional. The little details they added around the special occasion was very much appreciated and made the night that much more special.

After ordering our meal, the timing of service was on point. Bread, appetizers, main entree, and dessert were served at timely intervals where we weren't waiting around for the next dish. Our server was very personable and took great care to make sure we always had wine in our glass.

We're very glad to have went to Mooo and plan on going back again.

We had dinner at Mooo on Thursday night after having eaten their before and truly enjoyed the experience. The first thing to put me off was the atrocious smell that greeted us as we entered the restaurant. That smell of something that was not pleasant did not abate for quite some time. I thought several times of leaving Mooo but as it was late at night and we were exhausted - we stayed. The waiter that we had was completely overwhelmed and definitely needs a course in customer service. We sat down at our table at 9.25pm and we finally got some rolls tossed our way at about 10.05pm. I ordered a bottle of wine which took until 10.15pm to be told that they only had a warm bottle - so they had to chill it for me. Our waiter did not even tell us this important point or give me the option of ordering a different bottle - one which might have been cold! The food was good - very good. The atmosphere was not - it was freezing cold - so cold that we asked and the folks at the table in front of us asked (twice) for the air conditioning to be turned down - to no avail. The noise level is through the roof - we could not hear ourselves think! After all of this - I still would not have written this review if - when the bill came - I asked for a partial payment on my VISA and the rest I gave cash to our waiter. It is now 11pm and we are ready to go - unfortunately our waiter is no where in sight - we get up to stand by the door - in the hopes of getting my card back and signing the receipt and leaving - I ask another server where is he? He finally comes over to me - my original receipt has been bunched up as if it was thrown in the trash. He says to me -oh I put the entire amount on the card! Luckily it went through as I was not expecting that entire amount to go on that particular card and he gave me back my cash.I asked him - what was going on? He had no answer for me. I would have spoken to the Manager if it had not been so late.

Overall the food was good. But the service was horriable. At the beginning they didn’t even give us bread to start. Then we had to get the manager to take our order and after dinner it seems like they were therapy trying to rush us out by clearing the table even before we were done. I’m just saying there are starving people at the table all they want to do is throw everything away. I was pretty upset with this restaurant especially since it was listed as one of the best steakhouses in Boston.
