Good food, slow service

Eclectic and fusion cuisine, slightly overpriced. Their grilled vegetable dish is really good as are some desserts. I have been here three times and service is always slow.

No filet mignon on a Staurday night by 7:30pm? Oysters bad. Poor scotch menu, 3 brands $12-$13. Air conditioning non-existent and it was hot. Cold coffee. Dessert was good. Won't ever return. Not even with a Groupon.

We visited Moro only because we got a certificate for Christmas to this restaurant. We decided to use it 4 months later:) We were pleasantly surprised. Our food was delicious and the atmosphere was great too. I would have never thought about this place as an option for dinner (quiet a drive for us) and I am glad we went... More

Food has always been very good. Fresh,creative and with the best ingrediants, but this visit was exceptional . We've dined in many world class restaurants and think this meal was one our best ever. We shared the roasted oysters, SUPURB! My wife had a excellent steak ask, but the highlight was the Blue Fin Tuna (yes, really Blue Fin!). The... More

Love eating at Moro. The atmosphere is very cozy and the food is always so amazing. Wait staff is very accommodating. Small and large plates satisfy any appetite. And there always seems to be "coupons" available to help with the bill. There may not be much of a parking lot for Moro but I have always found a spot in... More

On a recent midweek evening we went with friends at 6:00PM. After being seated we waited 30 minutes for any visit by a staff member. Finally we ordered drinks and got menus. At 1 hour we got up and left without getting any food or drink. We told the waitress when we saw her on the way out that it... More

Very nice intimate environment, excellent food, excellent presentation, but for the money, over-rated and overpriced. Also, not a real nice neighborhood and no parking.

This restaurant looks like a nicely renovated home from the outside, but once inside, the decor is a modern Asian-style fusion and feels upscale. The food was all very good and the plating is intriguing. We would definitely go back. No complaints, here!

I want to rave and complain about this place all at once. First, I'll 'rave' about this place. In short, the menu was creative and offered a great variety for meat-lovers, pasta lovers, and vegetarians (not vegans). The restaurant itself was dark and trendy, and very high-paced. We loved the variety of 'small plates' since we both aren't big eaters.... More

We have been wanting to try Moro for quite a while, and finally got there on Saturday for dinner. First the good: Decor, ambiance, and food quality were fantastic. Portion sizes were exceptional - much larger than I suspected they would be. Neither of us had room for dessert. Now that we've been, we can order smarter next time. We... More
