My favorite feature of Moro is the small plates. They are delicious, imaginative and just big enough. In this era of gigantic servings, many of us appreciate the choice of smaller servings. Of course, you can have large plates if you prefer. Atmosphere is pleasant, quite dark, comfortable, service is good and knowledgeable. Parking is typical city squeeze in stuff, but can find a space a block away if all else fails.

We always have a gfantastic meal at this restaurant and the service is always right on. The menu is always different with some really cool & delicious items on it. High end dining in a smaller restaurant with a great feel to it.

The restaurant was quaint. I expected a more upscale décor from the pictures and reviews, but it was fine for a couple's night out. My guest and I were able to indulge in the tasting menu. I dine at top restaurants and although some of the selections were good I was not blown away as other reviews suggested. The staff was robotic and lacked friendliness. I would probably not dine here again.

Purchased a living social coupon on line for a fixed price 7 course meal with wine pairing on line for $49. ($110. Value). My wife made reservations but forgot to tell them about the coupon or the 7 course meal. When we Got there we were told that we had to tell them about the coupon when we made reservations and give them advanced notice about the 7 course meal. (all stated on the coupon). But they would honor it anyway and seated us. Service was great and the food Faboulas. Seven courses and sorbet in the middle. Wine was top notch, even got some larger pours. We asked for a bill to tip the waiter 20% of the original cost and he said that it would have been $220. and all he needed were the coupons. I went to get them and realized that they were left at home! (that's another story). The waiter called the manager over and he that's ok just call then with the numbers on the coupons the next day. Great food great place.
