Humans was delicious and so was the Chicken Shawarma. Perfect portion size. Ate outside. Love the decor and ambiance. Annoying to pay for each Pita. BYOB. Staff was friendly. Look forward to going back!

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!

The food was phenomenal and the price is right. The service was okay- our reservation was for 8 and they started turning lights off at 9. We’ll be back though. So much more food we want to try!

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.

Uncle Momo is my favorite neighborhood bistro. The food is great and the bistro itself is charming, altho dining is mostly outdoors now due to Covid but that’s fine! They have a great outdoor area set up on the sidewalk. I can eat here weekly, no problem (In fact, I get takeout from Momo weekly, happy to support this place!). The weekend brunch menu is my absolute favorite. Everything is so savory. You definitely want to eat here!

My party was told upon arrival that the reservation was never confirmed. I confirmed the reservation via text message and even called the restaurant and asked them about a seating question I had. I had a 7:30 reservation and my party was seated a little bit before 8pm. The restaurant seemed short staffed or didn’t know how to deal with a Friday dinner rush. We didn’t receive utensils (both individual and serving) with our apps, asked for a wine opener and never got that, and asked twice for the heat to be turned on and the server giggled and said she didn’t know to to turn it on. We were also told that the kitchen closes around 8:15 and needed to place our orders in by then. Kind of crazy given a party of 7 was seated at 8pm. It was clear that the staff wanted to leave by a certain time because we felt rushed. Apps were good but all mains except for the falafel platter and chicken schwarma were subpar. We also placed our dessert order with our mains and clearly they never took it down because they came back at the end to ask. Two of the items we ordered were not available. Super disappointing experience.

Socially distant, all servers were masked, friendly and made good recommendations. Good brunch options. Try any of the benedicts. Classic Middle Eastern cuisine is fresh and flavorful. Next try: pitzas.

I’ve been dining here for years, and the outdoor seating during Covid has been great. The food is always excellent: they make the freshest hummus and bread you’ve ever tasted, the tangine is also excellent. My favorite spot for brunch by far.

We made a reservation for 830pm and fifteen minutes before we arrived they called us to inform us that their kitchen was already closed. I normally love this place but DON’T let customers make a reservation when you cannot serve them!
