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 for dinner my husband had steak- prepared perfectly and I had Sea Bass- prepared with an amazing risotto. Really great service and food. It is our favorite place in Milwaukee. You can not go wrong eating at Mo's.

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 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.

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.

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).
