The service, meal and presentation were phenomenal. Our party of six had a wonderful time.
Another excellent meal at Motus! From drinks, to the backpacker’s lunch to dinner it was great! The flatiron steak with mushroom risotto, sautéed ramps, poached egg and hollandaise sauce was the date. Perfectly cooked steak with every component playing off each perfectly. I can’t wait to go back!
Absolutely loved Motus. Honestly, what a gem! The food was fantastic. The pacing from drinks to appetizers to entrees was right on queue. We will 100% be coming back to Motus the next time we’re in the Utica area❤️
I love this place. The staff is amazing
Our sanctuary , go to place to unwind, celebrate, or be romantic.
Delicious food, amazing drinks and service!
Outstanding food and service. Flavors were well planned and excellent wine pairings.
Motus is the best fine dining in the Utica-Rome area. Excellent preparation, great choices regarding how to complement the primary part of each entree, smart & professional service, quality original cocktails.
Awesome. Great experience overall. Beverage service is top notch
Some of the most creative cuisine we've ever had! We are regulars. Limited number of selections, as would be expected in a small restaurant, but there's something for everyone, and it's an incentive to try something new as well. We've never been disappointed!
Drinks were delicious food was good. Service was good
Very Nice meal. Quality ingredients, excellent presentation. Pasta was a little dry but all the ingredients were really fresh. Roasted Monkfish was exceptional. Great Wine list. Will definitely return.
As always the service was excellent. All social distancing protocol was followed, we saw all the tables being wiped and sterilized between customers. The food was phenomenal. Drinks were delicious. Lexi behind the bar mixed up some delicious cocktails and it is always fun to watch the chefs from the soundproof window in the kitchen. Emmie was walking around making sure everyone was happy and we had a lovely chat. It’s my favorite place to go.
Food and drinks were delicious!!
This restaurant is one of this greatest experiences I have ever had. My wife and I had out first date here, and continue to return at least once a month.
One of the top five dining experiences of my life. The chef and waitstaff at Motus never disappoint.
Great place to celebrate our anniversary. Great atmosphere and good food.
Never disappoints! Always consistent food, exceptional service!

Had an amazing meal, perfect filet & all around. We love Motus!
Food here never disappoints! True farm to table and the freshness shines. Every single detail is well attended to. Hot soup in a shot glass? Yes, please. Homemade sourdough bread. Perfectly seared tenderloin and the desserts are exceptional (surprise us they did). Owners are wonderful people and we will always be patrons!!
Excellent meal and service
What a lovely brunch. The place was beautiful, service was exceptional and the am poutine was out of this world. Can't wait to go back for dinner!
Our favorite restaurant the food is superb every time
Fantastic service and cool atmosphere. Very clean and staff was knowledgeable. The shrimp and grits (not the title but main ingredients) was amazing! All of the food was but this dish won’t leave my mind! I like that there is an option for a 5 course meal with choices and a set price or À la cart.
Definitely my favorite place to eat. Everything is always unique and delicious. And the staff and ownership are awesome.
Great food and bloody Mary’s
As you can see, I've left multiple reviews for Motus.....and for great reason.
Outstanding!!!! Everything! The collards were amazing. So we’re the homemade caramels!!!!!
Food is always fantastic, the servers and bartenders are also great. Never disappoints.
Amazing brunch, outstanding service, this was my first time there for brunch and I would definitely go again!
Delicious prix fixe menu. Creative cocktails with fresh ingredients.
We went for our anniversary brunch. Received a Prosecco toast for outing in our notes it was a special occasion. Brunch and motus marys were amazing. Totally go there!
Fantastic place. Great food and service. Really nice overall experience. Hope they make it. Might be a little loud if full with people.
Motus knocked it out of the park once again. A very creative menu that features entrees or tapas-style apps, expertly done and served up with class and charm. One of the best, if not THE best, restaurants in the area. The Ceviche was absolutely to die for!
Birthday with wife and friends. Motus is our favorite local restaurant. The menu and cocktails are always inventive and exceptional. It’s price is indicative of the quality.
Excellent brunch on Sundays. Definitely well worth it.
