    Excellent food and ambiance. The service was fantastic, attentive without being overly intrusive. While slightly more expensive, overall well worth it.

    This may be one of the best restaurants anywhere. I would compare it to the best Michelin restaurant in New York City. The ingredients are fresh, the presentation is innovative, and you must have the bloody Mary clams!

    Have frequented Motus on previous occasions as pre show place to have dinner. Reminds me of the NYC Midtown restaurants. I had the trout dinner which was one of the best fish dinners I’ve ever had. The broth fully complimented the trout. Highly recommend Motus.

    food and service was great. It is an upper scale dining experience. The only downside , which is nothing they can fix themselves, is parking can be a bit tricky

    The service and food were amazing. The restaurant was very clean and comfortable. We didn’t feel rushed but the courses came out in great timing. We have been going there for years and it never disappoints.
