    Moto shut down without notifying guests with active reservations. A disgrace.

    After having secured a reservation on the advice of my girlfriend's son and his girlfriend, we found out the the restaurant was being sold and that it would be the last dinner service. Quite frankly we were hesitant because we weren't sure if the restaurant would be up to its high standards. The experienced far surpassed all our expectations. Everything was exceptional and the fact that many of Moto's old staff came back for the last night spoke volumes. I am so very glad that my girlfriend and I had a chance to experience Moto's before it closed its doors. After finishing our meal we were even given a tour of the kitchen and got to meet the executive chef. Kudos to an awesome restaurant and an exceptional wait staff!

    This used to be our favorite restaurant. Unfortately, with only days left before they closed, I fear the strong staff were gone. Food was eh, service was blah, wine pours that should have been 2-3 ounces came out as sips. Nothing memorable from a once dazzling restaurant. Shame that my last memory will be quickly forgotten.

    I had very high expectations but left disappointed. We were initially seated in a minimally decorated windowless small room downstairs that had 4-5 tables and extra kitchen equipment along the walls. We asked to be reseated upstairs and were (after an hour) but the service upstairs was not great. Wine stewards walked away when we tried to ask questions, minimal description of dishes was offered and staff seemed mildly annoyed by our presence. To have a successful dining experience in a restaurant of this level, the service needs to be as great as the food. Ironically, the staff in the downstairs room (during our hour wait) was much friendlier and more attentive then the upstairs crew. The food was quite good but I left feeling disappointed.

    It's breaking my heart that I finally got myself to moto, only when it's going to be closing soon. I will eagerly look forward to Chef Anderson's next endeavor. This is the first meal I've ever had that evoked both my mom's cooking and also what I imaging dinner on the moon might be like.

    I'm so sad as I write this review. This restaurant was a trailblazer a dozen years ago and has always been one of the best dining experiences in the universe. And now they're serving their final meal in 9 days. To add insult to injury, the moto family (and they were a family) is being taken over by the insufferable Alinea group (who seriously think Michelin should increase the number of stars available just for them!) So if you haven't been to .moto, RUN immediately. Thank you, moto, for expanding my culinary world, making memories with people I care about, supporting countless charities, and the best thing I ever ate ... Donut Soup.

    paid $700.00 for two, 16 course with wine paring. 8 of the 16 courses not good (especially the waffles). the wine paring was $95 per person, we sat for 45 minutes with out wine at the end of our meal. no one asked if we even wanted to pay for a glass! When asked how things were i said the waffles were not great and several people came by and commented on the fact i said that. Charlie Trotters this is not!

    It is clear that they are closing the restaurant in two weeks and that the executive chef is no longer there. Sadly he killed himself last year and it must be hard to continue his vision of excellence without him. I dined at Moto several years ago and it was an incredible experience. But this last visit felt like they were just going through the motions. I guess it's understandable, but I would have wished that these last weeks would be an excellent celebration of his memory not a hollow echo of better times. Moto was an excellent restaurant offering a unique experience envisioned by a brilliant man. That is how it should be remembered.

    We chose Moto because of his very good reviews for our NYE getaway. Minimalist decor, impeccable service, surprisingly very good multicultural dishes with an exotic touch. This restaurant deserves more than one star Michelin. We choose the 16 courses and from the beginning to the end, it was an amazing experience. Chapeau!

    Now its just overpriced and trying too hard. Service took forever (intentionally make you wait), and the dishes weren't very inventive. There is a reason nobody is talking about this place anymore...
