I had heard about Moro for a while and I wanted to check it out. We walked in and there was no one to seat us. We waited about 10 minutes for someone to come and seat us. While we were at the table we waiting about 15-20 minutes before our server knew that we were their table even though they passed by us several times. The food was good, but the cocktails weren't. They couldn't even make some of them because they ran out of vodka. I've never heard of a restaurant running out of such a common and popular liquor like vodka. It wasn't just a certain brand of vodka, it was any vodka. I wouldn't go back.
Excellent food & service.
A bit pricey but that's what I expect at a really fine food restsuranu.
Short staffed so extremely slow service. Food excellent. Took us over 2 hours to have dinner. Hopefully this was an exception.
This past Friday evening Moro had just 2 servers and one chef on duty. They continuously turned away walk-in business not because they were busy (the place was nearly empty) but because they were short staffed. This time they were out of all but one beer choices and one menu entree. We waited nearly an hour between appetizer and entree serving. A month ago they were out of about 4 entree choices and all beer. The time before that they were again out of most entrees, most beer and most wine. I'm done with Moro.
Moro has gone way down hill since our last visit and is not the great restaurant it once was. The food and service were mediocre at best. The wine list was worse than average but we did find an acceptable bottle of wine, but it was overpriced for the quality. Not a good overall value and with all of the other good options in our area, we won't go back any time soon.
Was very disappointed. So many menu items were not available. While I am not a beer drinker, only having 2 out of 8 beers listed is pathetic. Two of the four appetizers were not available. No espresso coffee. Even some of the cheeses and meats for the cheese and meat board were not available. This is a pretty small menu to start with so not having 25% of the items is a bad sign.
My meal was OK - my friend had the lamb and said it was a bad cut of meat. My husband had the gnocci which were delicious. And the eggplant small plate was also very tasty. None of us would go back. Seems like the restaurant is on it's last legs. It's a shame because it was very good once, but no longer.
The eggplant tower is another new favorite.The restaurant was a little understaffed but all the employee's were working together. Our cute little waitress did a great job.We will be back soon.
Moro is consistently some of the very best and most interesting food in Delaware—it's my favorite go-to for a special occasion (this was a celebratory dinner) but doesn't feel fussy. I have never been disappointed by the small plates, in terms of quality, variety, and flavor. And the desserts were even better this time than they had been in the past.
Food & service is amazing! Must try. Great menu, I inly wish I had room for dessert
This was the 40th time we have eaten there in the last 8 years. Either it is really really good or we are really stupid. The tasting menu paired with their choices of wine is the best value in town. The high spot of the meal was a chocolate pate for dessert. To say it was magnificent is an understatement.
