Great food!

We went on a Saturday night. Not a big place and did not have reservations. Luckily we got a seat at the bar and ate there. Great pineapple margaritas ($8). I had the al pastor, pork tacos, served with pineapple salsa and salsa verde. My husband had korean beef with kimchee and enjoyed his. Also... read more

We went here on the recommendation of the owner of our B&B and we were not disappointed. Wonderful patio and the food was fantastic. It's not your traditional Mexican fare - we had the lamb chops and the scallops - delicious.

We ate at Momocho at the recommendation of our host at the Wallace Manor and were amazed at the innovative ways the food was prepared. No enchiladas or tamales here, just off the chart Mexican fusion like you have never experienced before. We ate at the Chefs Table and John put together an exquisite production that included 3 different margaritas,... More

My wife and I consider ourselves foodies, and have been to most if the hot spots and dives in CLE. This is arguably our favorite place to dine and always on top if our list for date nights. The jalapeño bread pudding is the best desert ever!

The margaritas were awesome. The food was good but not what I'm used to for Mexican food. I wasn't a huge fan of the corn tortillas but the chips and dips were tasty and unique.

Great guac! Especially the goat cheese guacamole. Good service and amazing food. If you are a famous luchador you can wear limited clothing. So that is cool...

This has been one of my favorite restaurants for a while. The food is unique and fresh. It's a mod Mexican style menu. The people are always super nice and helpful. I went here with my mom a time before and we sat at the chefs table which overlooks some of the food prep. It was awesome the chef was... More

Visited Momocho recently for the first time. Reservations are strongly recommended - ask for a table on the patio. We tried several of the margaritas which are freshly made. The spicy mango and blood orange flavors were our favorite. The guacamole is the best! Several speciality flavors available - strongly recommend the blue cheese guac. Entrees are large and best...

Had happy hour drinks and light appetizers here while spending a night in Cleveland. Their standard margaritas are excellent (simply, not too sweet) and a total steal during happy hour. They have some creative guacamole - we tried one with goat cheese and chile poblano and love it. Also had the al pastor taquito (braised pork, pineapple salsa) which was... More
