We just finished our 9 course dinner at Moto. It was a wonderfully delightful experience. The service was impeccable and the many flavor forward dishes were delicious. The passion that Chef Anderson cooks his food with is palpable. Not only did we enjoy all 9...More

From the moment I contacted Moto inquiring about a reservation I was impressed with their service. I have a severe food sensitivity to allium and they assured me they could customize the 18 course tasting menu to accommodate me, which they did flawlessly. The service...More
