Outstanding and original food, never reached such peaks of flavors and creativity elsewhere. Momo rolls and grilled spicy veggies were the perfect match to combine with an excellent white wine.

Hip lounge restaurant in het hoge prijssegment, maar van hele goede kwaliteit. Het eten was erg smakelijk en ruim voldoende. Genoten van de Crispy Duck, Crispy Octopus, Black Cod met een glas prosecco voor beiden en toetjes, goede koffie na. De rekening kwam op € 110 per persoon.
Er is wel een groot verschil qua ambiance en ruimte waar je zit. Links van de bar zijn ruime tafels voor vier personen met uitzicht naar buiten, rechts van de bar kleine tweepersoonstafels zonder uitzicht waar iedereen voortdurend langsloopt en achter de bar een grote hoeveelheid tafeltjes voor 2 of 4 personen met uitzicht naar buiten.

I love MoMo and the concept.
But you must pay more attention to your reservation policy in relation to your employees.
The service was not bad but there was constantly misunderstandings in orders.

Further, we enjoyed our evening at MoMo.

Kind regards,

Great and friendly service, superb food. Great to share with friends.
The floor was vibrating on the sound of music from somewhere, not contributing to the dining experience.

Overpriced, snobby and cheeky. If a waiter asks “would you like some edamame” as you get seated, you would think they’re on the house, not at MOMO... Food is just OK (Sashimi was excellent by the way) but not worth the price.

It was too noisy for us. Being there with friends we hadn’t seen for years we had expected to be able to talk and catch up in a more quiet ambiance. Also, the prices were very steep. As a result we left after our first drinks (still a bill of 65 euros) and had dinner somewhere else.

Alles wat wij hebben geselecteerd was niet lekker, marmer beef was moeilijk te kauwen, groenten salade te koud, waardoor niet lekker, momo rol zag er slecht uit en ook niks bijzonders, eend zag er uit als shoarma....

El problema es que se tardan mucho en darte tu mesa y te mandan a la barra y siempre está llena. La comida buena pero porciones pequeñas para el precio.

Good food and good atmosphere. Our table wasn’t ready at the time of the reservation so the hostess gave us a card and told us to go to the bar and take drinks and not to pay the bartender. We thought it was because of the delay but when we received the check it was included. the hostess explained that the card was only that the bartender will know to put the drinks on the table’s account. She didn’t took responsibility for the misunderstanding and let us feel very uncomfortable.

Don t change anything. We like it classy. Better than the redesigning of the hotel.

This is my second time at this restaurant and it has never disappointed. However, I would like if their music was a touch quieter. Outside that, it is a must visit when in Amsterdam.

We came with expectations that were too high. We took the different surprise menu’s. Some of the dishes were very good others were averaged in quality. Next time I would order à la carte. The high prices à la carte withhold me to choose them. Overall the price/quality is overrated. We spent 210€ and didn’t came home with a wow feeling. In the middle of the diner they dimmed the lights, and it was very noisy. I often go to the better restaurants, all I can say is that it was good but not wow. To end positive, the service was great and they gave an interesting explanation with every dish.

Overrated !!

I’ve been in Japanese restaurants in the Netherlands that serve really better Japanese food !! Got the impression that Cocktails were nearly as important as the food. Looking at the prices (very expensive) I got the impression that I was paying for over 25 waiters, barman and hostesses. Trendy is what they want to be.

If the service was good and the clientele as well, this would be a great place to eat and lounge.
Good interior design, good food, perfect spot.
Service: Slightly arrogant. Slow. Wrong serving (2 not ordered glasses, we thought from the house since there where only 8 people in the restaurant). Cleaning the table (too late) leaving it soaking wet.
Clientele: two people left and right, both alone (also slightly arrogantly) using face time and video on there mobile phones extremely loud without any notice of their ambiance.

Momo is a Nice place, music a little bit loud to have a normal conversation! Prices are a bit to high I think, its still a crowded place where tables are side a side, a bit more privacy for dining for 150 euro per person is appreciated. Service isn’t bad but to many different waiters for one table!
