Walked by Mo's and then looked it up and found it had great reviews so we stopped in for dinner. The food is creole and many of the entrees can be ordered mild or spicy. The portions were large enough for at least two meals and the flavor was great. Only gave it four stars because we ordered the key... More

This under-the-radar Haitian restaurant is worth a visit -- think incredibly flavorful comfort food, Caribbean-style. The portions are huge, the staff are friendly, and the menu accommodates vegetarians (that'd be me) and meat eaters (that'd be my husband; he recommends the Creole goat). Prices range from $7 to $17. I don't know if everyone gets free pie at the end... More

We loved the ambiance of this restaurant, finding the owner(s) to be delightful and welcoming. The food was ridiculously delicious and seasoned so well. I had the Caribbean Chicken with veggies and potatoes (to die for) and my wife had the Oxtail with veggies and dirty rice. We were stuffed when we left and still had leftovers to enjoy as... More

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
