My boyfriend and I just ate at MoMo for the first time. When we walked in, the hostess barely greeted us, grabbed a couple of menus, and ran to the back so fast I lost her and didn't know where she was seating us. Eventually we found our table in a little alcove with one other table in it. We were given tea right away and then left to sit with our menus for a good 15 minutes. I remarked to my boyfriend that I was disappointed that this place doesn't have a "special roll" menu -- just the typical fare. We later saw one on the way out that nobody had shown to us.
Once the server eventually showed up to take our order, she seemed so irritated by our mere existence that she actually started to grab the menus and walk away before we'd even finished ordering. She then came back to tell us they were out of Asahi -- normally that wouldn't bother me, but it just added to the whole negative experience.
Our sushi combo and gyoza came right away, and the server dropped off ONE soy dish. No side plates. I eventually had to get up and ask a server for more dishes so we could eat. She came by with another soy dish, no plates. I asked for plates, and when she brought them she dropped them on the table and hurried off. Mine was filthy. I had to get up and get another one. Once we finally had our food AND plates, our food was delicious and fresh. It was actually some of the best sushi I've had. I was really looking forward to the red dragon roll we'd ordered...but it never came. The server came by at one point with more tea for the table next to us...and didn't fill ours. We called after her to get her to come back, but she ignored us. After we waited for about half an hour for our red dragon roll, we gave up and went to pay for what we'd already eaten. We got no apology...only "it's coming!" Yeah, so is Christmas.

My boyfriend and I stopped in for brunch today, and right away I was unimpressed. We were seated in the corner by the fireplace, and our chairs were crammed into the corner in an uncomfortable manner. It was freezing in there, so I had to eat with my coat on. I ordered the vegetable breakfast wrap, and my boyfriend had the club sandwich with soup. His food was good, mine not so much. In addition to the typical breakfast veggies, my wrap had yam fries in it. YAM FRIES! The taste and texture of the yam fries didn't work at all with the wrap, and I couldn't bring myself to eat more than a couple of bites. I finally managed to flag down our server after about 15 minutes, when my boyfriend had already finished his meal. She apologized and offered to get me something else. I ordered the eggs benny, and it took another 20 minutes to arrive. The eggs were poor quality, but they were cooked properly. The ham was gross, the muffin wasn't toasted, and the hollandaise was pale and clearly not made in-house. Overall, it was edible but not good. After the server dropped it off, she never returned to check on us. We waited about half an hour to get a bill and eventually gave up and went to the counter to pay. We definitely won't be back.
