    The food was excellent, amazing quality. Pasta was so good. It was pricey but that is to be expected. We sat at the chef’s table high top which is right by the entrance. It was not too terrible but they kept the door open so it was a little cold. (Winter time)

    Amazing food and even better service. Our waitress was so nice and EXTREMELY patient with us in choosing our food or cuz we would get caught up with the chatter but she assured us we are dining “as if at home” she is AMAZING!

    The service and food were excellent. I especially recommend their roast chicken and sides, such as Brussels sprouts (the best I've ever had) and the caramelized pumpkin and kale. Of course, their homemade pasta dishes never disappoint. My wife enjoyed the ricotta cavatelli and allowed me to taste it. Truly delicious!

    We enjoy Mora. The new menu is not as good. We really miss the bread. The prices have gone up and portions are small. The desserts are a big downgrade. We had bananas foster bread pudding. It was not very good and bananas were nonexistent.

    Service was.... strange. Waiter seemed new, forgot our orders a couple of times and was slow on additional requests (parmesan, new glass, etc.). Food was great, cocktails were poor (they're typically great at Mora).

    Great meal. The chicken was outstanding. It was flavorful and tender. The butternut squash was the right vegetable and it was all delicious together. The margarita pizza was a little too salty but they remade it and it was perfect. The old fashioned cocktail was one of the best I’ve ever had.

    So many issues don’t know where to start…food times and drink times were ridiculous. Appetizers took 30 minutes at least and we ordered another drink after we ate our appetizers and ordered our mains. 40 minutes later no drinks and when we asked our server they said the bar was really backed up. Our server asked if we were celebrating anything special and we told them a birthday they commented they would bring us a nice treat at the end of our meal. When time came all they brought was the bill. Our bill was over $400 for mediocre over priced food.

    Mora is my go to spot to take friends, or a date, or even just eat myself. This Friday a friend of mine went with me, he had never been before and we sat at the bar. Once again I could not bring myself not to eat the Pork Chop Parmigiana, it's my favorite dish on the menu. Mora didn't disappoint, once again had a wonderful meal. The bartenders were very busy, and the service was slower than normal - but I have to say - not horribly slow, just a little slow. What I appreciated was the bartender recognized that, and called a manager for some help behind the bar. As well at the end of the meal the bartender apologized for not giving us enough attention - which really wasn't that big of a deal to us as we were having a good dinner. But it showed that he cared, and wanted to make sure we didn't leave unhappy. That's very classy.

    Beautiful ambiance, and fabulous service. We had pasta and a salad, and both were delicious. My decaf double cappucino was tasty and well made. We had no room for dessert, but we will be back to try the temping maple cake.

    Pizza was phenomenal. Pasta ok, had better. Everything was ruined by the bug in our salad. Management too scared to address issue had waiter do his work Our waiter had other things on his mind besides being a good waiter. I was disappointed because I expected more from this establishment.

    My family celebrated my daughter’s 22nd birthday at Mora at 7th St. It was their first time to dine here. They were amazed by the ambiance, food and service. When I made the reservations, I requested a special dessert, and Mora provided one for my daughter. Thank you for a wonderful evening, Mora!

    We had such high expectations after hearing how wonderful this restaurant was. We requested and were hoping for a romantic table to celebrate our anniversary, but were sandwiched between two other tables with about 10 inches on either side of us. The hostesses did not appear to like their jobs and did not greet or make any of the patrons entering the restaurant, feel very welcome. They were out of the salad we ordered. Thank goodness the food was yummy! The seafood pasta was divine and so was the pizza.

    Group of 4 out for Sunday Supper. First time to Mora. Appealing ambience and good crowd, friendly staff. Drinks fine. Italian Fries outstanding as an appetizer. Little gem salad was very disappointing, sand in greens. Dressing well executed and quality ingredients. Too bad. Pizza crust was undercooked, with too much sauce and very little cheese. Roasted chicken was well presented and juicy. Tagliatelle was a hit, flavorful and perfect pasta. .

    Service outstanding. Very friendly and attentive. As always, so noisy you couldn't hear the server's questions. The food barely adequate. Cauliflower took over the appetizer and the entree. Whatever acidic condiment on the fish overwhelmed any other flavors. A lot of pea shoots on the fish. Pasta mostly without flavor. Very disappointed in the food.

    This has been a fave of ours since the day they opened their doors. We hadn't been since 2019 and we were very much looking forward to sharing with friends last night. My pomodoro was outstanding, as usual. As were all of the entrees and sides.

    Really enjoy this place; excellent date night! They have great staff, and a variety of seating options, including covered outdoor, but we took the high tops in the bar. Loved the appetizer and entree but took a flyer on the pumpkin side which wasn’t my favorite. They do have good, straightforward but interesting options. Coming back with friends from out of town next week!

    Overall, we were extremely disappointed. Our expectations were pretty high to be fair, but even with that, just not an upper level experience. We paid $172.00 for 2 of us and left unimpressed and not feeling likely to return anytime in the near future. With all due respect, it seems like they need a chef who’s actually at the restaurant more keeping the standards high.
