Really great place for steak and seafood. We went there expecting it to be OK, nothing special. We were blown away. Mo's can compete with the best places in Chicago. Our server clued us into the Lobster Ceviche, which was divine. Then

This is a first class restaurant. The service is fantastic. The atmosphere is great and the food is wonderful. Their specialty is steak and the steak melts in your mouth. They are on the expensive side, but it is special treat to go there.

My boyfriend and I had a gift certificate to Mo's, we were really excited to try it out seeing we've only
really experienced Mr. B's and Michael's house of Prime. We were there on a Friday night, seemed to
be fairly busy but not annoying.

We ordered drinks that took 10 minutes to get. We had a waiter and a waitress,which is nice if they are both attentive but completely frustrating and pointless if they aren't.

I ordered the "special" which was an 8oz fliet with scallops. The steak was good, but I ordered mine medium rare and my boyfriend ordered his medium, they got it switched which wouldn't have been a big deal but they were different cuts.

I also had a side of sauteed mushrooms that were salty and mushy. If I'm paying $180 for dinner: NAIL THE MUSHROOMS.

The scallops were the most disappointing. They were done well but completely gritty.
There's nothing more romantic than feeling sand on your teeth.

I was pretty disappointed. I can let certain things slide but Sauteing mushrooms in my
opinion is basic cooking 101.

I will stick with places like Mr. B's.

I tried Mo's for the first time on a date. I thought the service was great and on top of their game. I order the filet and thought it was great. I'm a picky steak eater as I work in the cattle industry and I would recommend Mo's, as their name indicates, as "A Place for Steaks." The only downfal was that their steak selection was a bit limited for my tastes, so was their specials. I think there was one that night.

Mo's was a pleasant suprise. Service was strong and smart without being overbearing. Selection of wines was impressive, though a tad celebrity based (Coppola, Andretti, etc.) and was slightly overpriced. Steaks were limited, but VERY good. As a steakhouse, I was suprised that the biggest steak was a 20 oz. Seems to be a trend with steakhouses, and one that I am not thrilled about. No, Mo's does not need at 64 oz er like the Chop House in Chicago, but 20 just won't do. 32 or 36 would be nice, and possibly at Porterhouse for two would be nice (I usually order one of these for myself). The upside of the small steaks is that you have room for the sides which were all good (corn, spinach gratin and jalapeno hash), but the biggest suprise was that there was room for dessert. I am NOT a sweets guy. The Chocolate Bread Pudding is AMAZING. Best I've ever had.

Great meal topped off with a great dessert. Mo's has little to no pretension in the place. They let the food speak for itself, and the small steaks do a nice job.

I recently went to Mo's for a company dinner with our client and at first I was very excited to see what all of the hype had been about.

Needless to say I was very disappointed with the experience.

The cuts of meat where small (especially given the cost) and the serving sizes were barely enough for one adult person.

The flavor was existent but not rememberable.

I have really had better and expected more from the restaurant given all of the hype. Overall, I am glad that I didn't have to pay for this meal and don't plan to go back anytime soon (especially not on my own dime).

Poor quality food (salad, onion rings, soup), very expensive. The kind of place where your water glass is refilled after every sip.

I really wanted to like Moes. I really did. But I have to say the calibur of beef they serve does not command the price they charge. This is a high end steak house, I have no problem spending $35+ for ala carte steak.

Order the "special" 20oz bone-in NY Strip. I ordered it rare, came out a healthy medium to medium-well (mainly grey, little pink, but surprisingly juicy). When paying top dollar for at a restaurant like this I expect A LOT better. Sent it back - staff was very understanding and promised a new steak. I'm sure the kitchen's thought "we'll show this jerk" since the steak was probably cooked to health code minimums and VERY gristlely. They did replace the sides and the manager apologized.

Wake up Milwaukee. This purports to be a TOP NOTCH steak house. It is not.

Sadly, I've had better steak at Outback.

An outstanding place to dine. We live on the east coast but fly into Milwaukee to visit family or go to a Packer game. One of our highlights is to dine at Mo's. The food, ambience and service is outstanding. An exceptional place.

The resturant has a very nice feel to it and the food is very good. But if you ask me for the price, you can find a better meal in town. The cuts of meat were very good, but when served, they lacked taste. The side dishes are served kind of family style, 2 people can split most of them, again, the items were kind of tasteless.

If you are going to spend that much on dinner, i would spend it at other steak places in town.

No attention to details. No ambience. No class. Not friendly. Very limited menu. Rushed through dinner ... we were in and out in 1 hour ... including gulping down 2 cocktails. VERY expensive. Even with our take-homes ... the steak was just thrown in with the spinach. Steak was very good. Red wine sauce recommended by our waiter was awful. I don't mind paying top dollar, but expect to get experience commensurate with price. Will never go back.

I absolutely love Mo's! The steaks are awesome and so is the dessert! The service is outstanding and be prepared to be pampered. My husband and I go every year for my birthday and our anniversary. The atmosphere here is very upscale and the wine list is devine. If I could dine here once a week, I'd be in heaven.

The restaurant has nice ambience on the first level at the main entrance. My family had a reservation and was placed on the second floor above the hotel or office building next door. I had ordered a filet with shrimp which was cold when I had come back from the bathroom to wash up for dinner...maybe 5 minutes tops. The steak had a nice topping to it, but with it being cold, I felt they could have done better. The shrimp was served with the shell on, no cocktail sauce or butter, also cold and really no taste. Mo's is also a chain in the Milwaukee area, and right accross the street is Mo's Irish Tavern. Their food is also quite plain. I like potato's as much as the next person, but at least add salt and pepper.

The steaks are fantastic. The tempura asparagus is awsome and you need to finish up with the bread pudding. The price matches what you get and you always get a good meal. No suprises good or bad as long a you stick with steak.

I have been to many fine steak houses. When I order a filet medium I want it to melt in my mouth. If its a prime cut and cooked right it should. Although they did offer to take it back, I believe a fine steakhouse should cook it right the first time.
The service was fantastic, the sides were great(large portions). Everything was a pleasant experience, except for the one thing they are known for, STEAK.($38)
If you are planning on a steak dinner, try the other recommmended steakhouses(better value).
Sorry Mo

Johnny V. has developed an incredible destination venue with Mo's A Place for Steaks. He renovated this two floor restaurant into a fine dinning Mecca.

Mo's is a traditional and formal restaurant that is welcoming and unpretentious. I highly recommend your steak be prepared Sicilian style with Olive oil and lightly breaded, they are my favorite!

It is good to know that Mo's meals are presented ala Carte. Because of this, be prepared to eat a sizable meal if you like your meal balanced with the various food groups.

Mo's wine selection is outstanding! Expect a wide variety of red's and white's. If you happen to have a hard to find personal favorite, Mo's has a nominal cork fee for those wines brought in by you.

I feel you can't find a better blend of food, wine and location in Milwaukee beyond Mo's a Place for Steaks.

Bon Appetite!

I enjoyed Moe's Steaks. I've eaten several times there. I just thought the prices were a bit much. A bake potatoe should at least come with your meal. The service on a good day are excellent!

Still the best steak I have tasted to date. I really enjoy that all the extras are extra. You can get exactly what you want. The bar/lounge area is perfect for before or after dinner drinks.
If you leave the table for what ever reason your head or asst waiter will clean your area and leave you with a new napkin. Beautiful little touch.

I dine at Mo's often and their steaks are exceptional. I usually have the filet mignon along with asparagus or steamed spinach. My fiance enjoys their lobster tail with tenderloin. The service is the best in the business. At this restaurant, be sure to be treated like royalty, if only for one night.

I really feel that mo's should not be placed in the top 10 plaecs in Milwaukee. I ate there and have to say the service and most of all the food really was bad. I would never, ever tell any one about Mo's. I use to eat at that Place when it was Clock Steak House and sure it was not the best place in Milwaukee it was in the top 10 places. I have to say it was 100% better than Mo's. Maybe they could get a hold of the old owns and get some help .

I heard good reviews, however, I wasn't that impressed. Dinner for 2 cost me almost $100.00. I've had steak at other places for $75 or less that was better. I wouldn't go back. Over -priced for what you get. You pay for the downtown atmosphere.
