Get here early to be seated

Enjoyed a 5 Vulture dark ale with spicy blue cheese pig tails & raisin kale salad in their upper room. The menu is adventurous. It's way busy. Get here early. No lingering either. Wow.

Throw away any preconceived notions of Mexican food and go to Momocho. They've taken traditional Mexican food and made it Mod Mex with ingredients that you won't find at your traditional places. Their guac is awesome and we started with the goat cheese and poblano. My wife and I each had the taquitos and loved them both. I had the... More

This was my first pick when spending the weekend in Cleveland. I read great review in TA and heard great reviews on my last visit to Ohio. We started the night with the salsa trio: pepita and cilantro (my fave), pineapple, and pico de gallo. They give you a lot of salsa! This really should be split by 4 people.... More

First, the smoked trout and bacon guacamole is very good, I liked the fish taste and the bacon balanced this quite well. I had the beef brisket and very good but prepare for running juice in your hands. My husband had the pork and loved it! Our friends loved their scallops and fish dinner and forked all the liquid off... More

This place came in highly recommended by co-workers and after reading the reviews here, I decided to give it a try. I have been to Mexico several times and have been to several Mexican restaurants in the US. This place is trying to reinvent the wheel. For starters, the prices are extremely high for what they offer and they are... More

Visited the restaurant for the first time as we went there with our son and daughter-in-law on a Friday night. A small two story restaurant that was very busy. Reservations are recommended. The variety of margaritas was surprising and all were enjoyed. We had the corn tortillas with the quac and salsa verde. Very good. Dinner was enjoyed by all... More

Check this place out for happy hour. We went New Years Eve and expected a long wait and expensive meal. They still had happy hour going on so we got margaritas and taquitos for half off. The food is more up scale mexican so don't expect hard tacos with ground beef. The queso comes with soft corn tortillas not chips,... More

We started with the Margarita sampler. I normally love sangria but decided to try it. I had cucumber, pineapple and pomegranate. All yummy. The guacamole sampler was great big portions. We had crab, goat cheese and pineapple. All distinct in flavor and good. The chips that come with it are really good. Both these samplers are a must have! The... More

Great food, great atmosphere and great service. Could not have asked for a better place to eat during our Xmas get away. Worth the trip.
