Was there for a late lunch. Only really negative was that they took a reservation for 2:00PM and when we got there we were told the kitchen closes at 2:50! Ok Food was good.

The lamb tagine and the chicken tangine were excellent. My son said his mixed grill was cooked perfectly. Main courses don't come with veggies, so we had salads as an appetizer. We will definitely be back!

We were a group of 5 and had a great experience. Our server was the only one there and even with other tables she was attentive and kind. We were not rushed by any means and the food was amazing. It was quite hot on the inside of the restaurant, but the food and services was worth it.

The appetizers were good. We got the 6 appatzers on the plate which were brought out with a chinzy 1 piece of pita. The chicken tagine was bland and had very little to it.

The service was great. The house-made pitas were light and tasty and the chicken shawarma platter was delicious. A really good meal.

Two people at our table had chicken kebab and both raved at how delicious it was. The pizza made on a pita looked great and the person who ordered this said is was delicious. I liked my brunch except that it was a bit sparse, dry and the eggs were over-poached. The kitchen or waiter did not do a good job of timing the meals. We were wondering why it was taking so long for the meals to come out because the restaurant only had two or three tables to attend to. The eggs were completed before the rest and sat under a heat lamp. Also, we were never asked if we needed anything, or how everything was. We had to ask for water twice before they would come automatically to refill the glasses. #Greatfood. However, our experience was not great on service. I will definitely go again and give them the opportunity to get their pre-COVID service legs back!

The appetizers were delicious but my main course, Bronzini, was inedible! I didn't complain, but when the wait staff asked why I didn't want to take my uneaten fish home, I told her it was terrible. I explained that the fish tasted (and smelled) bad or old. She excused herself and went into the kitchen. When she returned, she told me she smelled the other fish and it was fresh so that meant my fish was good too. I disagreed but didn't want to argue. I was with my two friends and didn't want to make anyone uncomfortable. When the check arrived, we all fully expected my 28$ entrée to be removed from the tab but it was not. To make up for it, I suspect, she gave us all unrequested dessert to go- hardly adequate! It is not the money so much (although that was a factor after leaving a restaurant without having eaten), but the manner in which my experience was disregarded. With all the great restaurants around, why would I spend my money at place that doesn't serve fresh fish (like the place on South Park I ate a few weeks prior)?

Hummus & beet apps were amazing. Fresh and great flavor. Order mixed grill & chicken shawarma which were both full of flavor and very enjoyable. Service was great and we weren't rushed through the meal which was nice.

I’ve been going to Uncle Momo for years and have never been disappointed. The food is great every single time. Great service and ambience. Great food at a reasonable price. We had the tabuleh, hummus, babaganoush, fattoush, salmon, lamb shish kebab, Za’atar pizza-all amazing!

I made a reservation for the whole family and when I arrived they were closing. They said open table schedule was wrong and not even because of my kids they received us. Is not the customer’s fault that they don’t keep their websites updated.....

We were looking forward to trying Uncle Momo, but we were a little underwhelmed. I’m happy we tried it and the food was okay, but I felt the prices were a little high for food that didn’t knock my socks off.

Very disappointing. No taste in most dishes. Ordered 3 appetizers and Fattoush salad. Uneventful will not even describe it. Also ordered Moussaka. Tiny portion of tasteless products.
Asked for Moussaka to be served as main course. Was brought out within 10 minutes of the appetizers. Will not attempt again. Better places near by with much better food and service.

El restaurante tiene una decoración muy peculiar si te fijas en los detalles. La comida fue excelente!!!! La verdad que la variedad de sabores y olores fue muy gratificante. La atención fue muy buena. No tienen carta de vinos sin embargo, ellos ofrecen la posibilidad de comprar vino a otro negocio que te hace el delivery en minutos (otra opción es que puedes llevar tu propio vino si quieres)

We ordered Tunisian Eggs and Momo’s Toast for brunch. Both were delicious even though I asked for the eggs to be poached instead of sunny side up. We love the varied brunch menu.

There seems to be a mixup with reservation times. Ours was for 2:45 pm for 2. Reservation made at 1:55 pm through Open Table.
