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

Stopped in before floats in the oaks. Pleasantly surprised. Service was great. Food delicious. My chicken dish was reported as being spicy—and it was, but just right! Waiter was tops.

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!

The service was fabulous, and the atmosphere was really nice however we were disappointed with the food. The chicken appetizer was over fried and dry… The special beef dish was chewy and tough and slightly overcooked and the vegetable bowl lacked flavor. :(

I had beef pho that tasted basically like water. Never had to ask for soy sauce before (just to give it salt!). No beef broth flavor, no spices, nada.
And it was so good here when I last visited Nola in 2019!
