Funky with good food and jazz

This is a funky little place, under the JMZ in Brooklyn. You enter at the peak of a triangle – or the head of an arrow, as an earlier reviewer said. The marble-topped tables line the wooden walls, and there is a horseshoe bar at the end near the widest spot. We had a drink at the bar – note... read more

My girlfriend and I are not familiar with Brooklyn and took the train on our way to see a show at The Knitting Factory. We happened to get off the train at Moto and stopped in to get our bearings. We stayed for two drinks (happy hour prices!) and light appetizers. What a pleasant surprise! The bartender was super nice... More

The surrondings are very nice, but the food was so overprized. All 5 of us were still hungry after a main dish - and we paid much more than it was worth...

Once you walk in it feels like you are transported in time to the 1920's with the ambiance, decor, and lighting. Food is good even if the menu is very small. I love the jazz in the evenings.

Thanks Moto, for a great romantic evening. My girl and I went this Monday for a relaxing evening of delicious Italian food and very tasty wine. The live jazz band added so much to our experience, transporting us back in time. There was also a party of 4 who must have been on their way to a party as they... More

Even the visiting Europeans are finding out about Moto. The food is fantastic, especially with the new menu and chef. The atmosphere is cool Williamsburg vibe. Enjoy live music most nights at 9pm (check schedule as it may vary nights) and early for brunch. I love this place fist off though for the people that work there... You are the... More
