On vacation with my son and we happened to hear about this from the show Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. Started out with a cucumber margarita which was absolutely fantastic. We next ordered some chips and salsa and asked our waiter if they carried any hot sauce. Our waiter informed us that they sell their own small bottle of habanero sauce,... More

Tried this restaurant after we found it on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives website - we wanted to taste some local fare. The cucumber margaritas (with red chili pepper and lime salt rimmed glasses), pecan encrusted flounder and shrimp taquitos were more than worth the out-of-the-way location. We had not made a reservation, but seats opened up at the bar and... More

I first heard of Momocho from my wife, who'd seen it profiled on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, Guy Fieri's show on Food Network. So when we traveled to Ohio City recently we decided to add it to our itinerary. My wife's aunt and uncle had been here on earlier occasions and...as other reviewers have mentioned...were met with staff expressing attitude.... More

My daughter and I ate dinner here on a Thursday evening. We sat at the bar because it was first come first serve. We would have had an hour and a half wait otherwise. If you go, you should make a reservation. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was cramped and the place was packed. We ordered... More

We visited on a Monday night, on a whim and not knowing where we wanted to eat. Holy crap did we make the right call! We had the guacamole sampler. I'm a guacamole addict, so trying to choose 3 from their extensive list of guacamole variants was night impossible. At some point in the not too distant future, I fully... More

After a last minute decision for friday night dinner, my bf and I decided to have dinner here. Having read the positive reviews, I wanted to try it for a few months. We arrived and were told by the unsmiling hostess that it would be an hour, with no suggestion or direction of where to wait, in the mean time.... More

My husband and I are from Arizona. When we moved to Ohio from the west, one of the things we missed out on was good Mexican food. I'm sorry, but who puts white american cheese in Mexican food? Then we found Momocho. Higher-end, more authentic, closer to what we were used to coming from Arizona. We have not had anything... More

My friends recommended this place to me and I thought I would give it a try. When it comes to Mexican food I look for unlimited chips salsa and at least some of the basic dishes like burritos, chimichangas, and enchiladas, which were not to be found here. This place is more of a high end hole in the wall... More

After reading many great reviews and seeing that it was then rated in the top restaurants of Cleveland, my husband and I decided to give it a shot. We did make reservations for the Saturday night and although we called almost a week in advance, the only time slots available were 5pm and after 8:30pm. We took the 5pm reservation... More

This place is trying to be trendy. Small portions and high prices. We had the $14 shrimp entree and it came with 5 pieces of shrimp. The pork tamale was flavorful but not large. The guacamole was the best item we had but who wants to fill up with chips and guacamole. The worst part was a dinner for 4... More
