I had a prawn dish that had butterfly pasta with some carrots and spinach in a tasty slight creamy sauce. It was really good.

This is a blend of Haitian and Carribean food. The chef personally prepared a traditional Haitian meal that wasn't listed on the menu. It doesn't get any fresher! This restaurant is dedicated to customer service and the food speaks for itself! It came it out hot in a reasonable amount of time and price, generous portions, and finger licking good!... More

Our first visit to Mo's since it belonged to Mo over ten years ago. Four of us dropped in on a Friday night, Delice was working solo so when he asked what we would like, we just said Feed Us, and that's exactly what he did. My only advice to others, be patient and come hungry and you will leave... More

My husband ordered the seafood casserole which he said contained the best seafood sauce that's he's ever tasted, and we've dined at more than a few Michelin starred restaurants. My son had the escargot which was chock full of big plump escargots and I enjoyed the grouper. My only complaint is the slow service, but at least it was friendly.

It'd be so easy to miss this little place, but you'd be missing-out big time. They have a Caribbean ox tail dinner over a Spidey chutney rice that's amazing. Even better is the escargot dinner. I can't imagine how they can afford to put so many escargot in one meal. Baked under a layer of creamy cheese with spinach leaves,... More

We found Mo's on a whim and are so happy we did. My husband proclaimed at the end of our meal that this was one of the best meals he's ever eaten. Our chef, owner, and waiter (all in one!) were so accommodating and nice. When our son fell asleep at the table, he offered to make him more comfortable... More

We came in for a late lunch in the early afternoon. There were a few people in the restaurant and there only seemed to be one man working. There was a young family at the counter who seemed to know the employee and he gave them ALL of his attention. We ordered simple shrimp and tuna salad sandwiches which don't... More
