90’ food and ambiance, funny but not good enough towards price…stuck in an other timeframe? Food was ok, service too but you expect more for paying 80-100€ a person for a night out. Old school elevator music does not help too :-)

Appetizers were offered as complementary and than we got charged for them.
The food is extremely overpriced compared to the taste of the food.
Employees are polite enough, but can not be rated great, because it takes a long time to find one to take our orders and or bill.

We had the tasting menu, which was phenomena. However, they have two seatings per evening, so they serve everything within two hours. When one course was done, within 5 minutes they would serve the next course. This was a killer for me.

The noise level was ambient when we arrived at 6PM, but was loud when we left at 8PM. Not my choice.

Staff was friendly, but not pro active. I had to pour the wine myself. The wines are actually rather expensive.

In summary, I enjoyed to food, but not the rest.

Food and ambience are great! In our opinion our waiter was a bit too much in our face all the time and pushy about ordering more dishes. Not much time to talk before ordering bc we had to order fast. That didn’t feel right. Having diner outside must be relaxing without being pushed in any way. We will be back but I’m gonna say something if it happens again next time.

Sushi rolls are always amazing at MOMO and the cocktails are too. The chicken was abit dry but the teriyaki truffle sauce is game changing.

slightly disappointed that at this restaurant, where experience seems to be highly relevant, no attention was given to the reason for the reservation (celebration of graduation). If you guys want to know why we come to have diner, then I expect you guys to act on it as well. A simple token of acknowledgement would have made a wold of difference. Especially since in the next question you suggest that it's great for anniversaries, celebration and what not.

The best thing about this place was the outstanding service. Our waiter was excellent. I have a lot of allergies including gluten and soy, and he was very attentive and checked everything for me. It’s not usual I feel so safe eating at a restaraunt. This meant I was able to enjoy the experience with my husband. The sushi was great and tasted fresh. Everything else we ordered was good, but not outstanding. We had an excellent time here but mostly because of our waiter, the drinks, and people watching outside the big window we were seated next to. That being said I’ve been to many restaraunts with much better food.
In the end it depends what you’re looking for. We will definitely be back for the bar and a roll or two of sushi but would not recomend for a real culinary experience. It’s not that the food wasn’t good, it’s just that it wasn’t necessarily worth the value.

Even though the food was okay, most of the service was sub-par and the behavior of the bartender (we sat at the bar with a snack before we sat down at a table for our meal) was downright unhygienic (throwing things towards us into the sink, which we were sitting behind, sadly, getting flecks of stuff into our soy sauce and green tea - wringing his cleaning cloth above said sink, extremely close to our food and drinks).

The same bartender, when we ordered a snack via him, was very dismissive of our question for clarification of our order, saying “yeah yeah yeah” as opposed to listening to us and reassuring us he had heard the order properly.

Furthermore, even though it was known we had a reservation, we had to ask a waitress to be seated after access to the restaurant was finally opened, rather than them informing us our table was ready.

Then, during the meal, it was nearly impossible to attract the attention of a waiter when we wanted to ask something.

Finally, we felt that the tables were too close together. During these times of pandemic, we did not feel safe eating at Momo’s. At the table next to us sat a man who came in coughing loudly and he kept on coughing throughout the time he was there. The staff did nothing to check up on this man’s health or to assess whether he could be a danger to the other guests.

Do NOT recommend this place.

It is Gwen's mum who filled in this form. Normally Momo is the top. However this experience last sunday evening was horrific.
When it is Momo's new policy to give children's parties on Sunday evenings (1 or 2 year old..), you should have let us know that in advance. The shouting was so loud that we had to skip golddiggers and coffee, just to get out Momo a.s.a.p.

The group with the birthday kid was also very un-polite and didn't give anything about others and the fact that we are in the middle of a Corona crisis. The mother hang over our table, trying to get her child away (he was clinging to my table), whilst speaking close to my face....!! rude comments. (although I never said one word to them)

When we entered Momo, close to us there were also other people with 2 small children. They didn't shout, however, parents allowed them to walk all over the benches with their boots on... Not done in normal times, I think. But in Corona time it is devastating. Did you know that the virus can survice the longest on the soles of shoes? And with those shoes they walk all over your seats in your restaurant where people like my daughter and I come, nicely dressed, for an evening out.

It must be hard for you as restaurant owners/management and we sincerely hope you will survive this crisis. However, as a client, leaving your restaurant with an upset stomach and headache.. A spoiled (expensive) evening out with my daughter. We deserve better.

Heerlijk lunch gedaan bij Momo. Het eten is er altijd goed, ook nu weer. Dit keer zeer uitgebreid gegeten. Gestart met wakame boontjes met 3 sushi rollen: spicy tuna, shrimp tempura en de speciale wagu beef. Die was subliem. En daarna zoals altijd de spicy bentobox met extra duck rol ipv de inktvis.

We love Momo, but this time, the restaurant was empty, only 1 other table was occupied , and we still had to wait for the service . Our first order was forgotten to deliver to the table. I had to ask for this twice.
But we still love Momo and keep going

I never right any reviews but our experience was so bad that I felt that it was needed to share my experience. A good friend of mine recommended this restaurant but it wasn’t what I had expected based on his stories. It was way to expensive for the value that you receive. You can rather eat at a star restaurant where you get good personal attention and value for your money. We had the feeling that we where served out of the restaurant. We got our food way to fast every course. We took the Set - 3 Menu for 90 eu per person and ordered two bottles of Chardonnay (57 eu per bottle). Because the bottle wasn’t standing next to out table we had the feeling they were serving multiple tables with the same wine.

The food at the other hand was delicious but overal experience was very bad.

Dinner in Momo is always a great food experience. Service is excellent. However, we prefer to have dinner early in the evening or lunch in the weekend. After 8.30 pm the noiselevel is not only unbearable, but you just can't have a normal conversation with friends on your own table.
