2 stars is being kind. Really. We had a reservation for 6 people for 5:30 pm. There were 12 other people in the restaurant at the time that we arrived. We were going to order special french fries that were on the menu but apparently the cooks do their prep during the dinner hour because we were informed that the... More

Motifs used to be located I a different,much more comfortable,place. Now the place is dark and smells of bleach, very unappetizing. The food is good, so you should take it home.

Loved their special take on Nachos! Great food and interesting dining but very loud on their music nights. I enjoy coming here on their quieter times as it can be a real party scene full of young students.

We really had a dinner of mixed quality. The jalapeño hummus was delic. The entrée salad had tough romaine lettuce with lots of stems. My wife's steak kabob was spiced nicely but somewhat tough. My lamb kabob was delic but overpriced with 4 cubes of lamb. We would go back but for lunch.

This was our first trip to Moti in their new location. It was a little hard to find because the outside says "Lit" because it converts into Lit nightclub later. This is a hidden gem to be sure. The wait staff greeted us warmly and invited us to sit wherever we liked. We took the waitress' recommendation on a drink... More

This was without a doubt, one of our favorite mediteranean meals of all time. Positively delicious! We were a party of three and ordered Babaganoush as an appetizer and Veggie chili and lentils over rice, Chicken Curry over rice and the Chelo vegetarian platter as our entrees. Each was unique and positively delicious. The Babaganoush was complex with beautifully integrated... More

We ate here last night. The food was actually good, yet a bit overpriced. The main downfall was very poor service. Our appetizer was never brought to the table. It was only acknowledged after our main dishes were brought to us. When I asked for a glass of ice for my wine, the waitress said she would have to go... More

We happened upon this restaurant when we were pressed for time. They were willing to accommodate our party of three on short notice on busy night. When we explained we were in a hurry, they told us the fastest items on the menu. Since we were looking for vegetarian fare, we were in luck. The hummus platter was delectable, especially... More
