Good food but the plates came out in an odd order. The waitress was very kind but forgot to put in our appetizer order. She informed us of this and we still opted to go ahead and order it because we wanted to try it. The food was good but I expected better having been to Maypop their sister restaurant.

Had reservation.
Still had to wait over 30 Mn and only got a table when I complained. There were numerous open tables but they said they were going to put them together for a large 7:30 reservation, so we were just left to wait.

I was excited to try the food but we were both underwhelmed.
Wait staff were really great though!

I ordered the drink with mescal but they didn’t have the cocktail.
How. An u not have your signature cocktail?

Anyway, super disappointed , would never go back.

Nice place, fantastic waite staff, and dragon lady drink superb! Blood Mary drinks were bland. Fried P & J oyster appetizer was full of flavor overload that masked the oysters instead of compliment. Pho was tasty but add ins were lean. Overall food was decent.

Everything was good. This was just the right blend of Vietnamese meeting southern comfort cuisine. It just felt a bit chilly, so I’d recommend bringing a light jacket.

We had reservations and no table was available when we arrived. After being seated, we waited 10 or more minutes before we spoke to our waitress. Our food took no time at all to arrive but they got they order wrong. The drinks were slow to arrive, water glasses never filled during our dinner. The food was not bad but nothing to rave over. We are not planning on going back and would not recommend this restaurant

1st time going to MoPho in a while and gotta say, I could have let it be a lot longer between visits. Service was great, honestly a really amazing server, BUT the food was NOT. The salad was SO overly spicy I couldnt eat it (I sent it back and ended up eating a bowl of VERY dry rice with wing sauce), wings were chewy, and the spring rolls were soggy. And the bill for 4 people was $120! Terrible

The food was very delicious! I had the spring rolls, green beans & the Hangover II pho soup. The server was nice, but overall, the service was very very slow -- especially to get any of our drinks. I would recommend the restaurant though.

The pho wasn’t pho. It was more like ramen with the pho noodles. My pork pho was disgusting and greasy and the beef pho my boyfriend ate was chewy. The spring rolls were utterly delicious but not worth the price. Wings were good too. But I was looking for pho and was very disappointed. Staff were really nice.

Family get together at a fairly large group went well, food was very good, and cocktails were interesting. Had some very interesting interactions around the special of the day, where he disappeared suddenly. Overall, this is an excellent performer on almost any given day and we recommended strongly for group gatherings and for lunch and dinner.

It was very disappointing to find our favorites not on the menu anymore. We alway came for the duck Poboy and the oyster poboy and both are off the menu. The wings are still the best in town.

All the food was wonderful. My one minor criticism, and it’s just my opinion, the food is just a slight bit complex. Too many ingredients. Like too much if a good thing. Of course we scarfed up every single bite of everything. The prices are very reasonable. Nice atmosphere. Dynamite server. I think it was Michael. Anyway, a big bear of a guy with a warm and friendly attitude. Loved the evening

Upon arriving, we were quickly greeted and taken to our table. Our waitress was super friendly and helpful as we navigated the menu and placed orders for drinks, appetizer, and our entrees. In telling her that my date and I intended to split the two entrees we had selected, upon their delivery to the table we were so delighted that they had been split for us into separate dishes. This was so very thoughtful and helpful! The food was all very delicious and the drinks were tasty as well. Highly recommend!
