    This is my favorite restaurant. There is no place that I know where the owner greats you, visits your table, is genuinely concerned that your have a delicious meal and everything is perfect. I have gone for drinks. I have gone for dinner. I have gone to celebrate. Never once was I disappointed. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to have a great meal with great ambiance and amazing staff. Cheers!!!!!

    A local gem! I've had the pleasure of Officiating a Wedding at Momento and my wife and I have dined here several times both during the summer and winter. We've always had an amazing experience. The staff is super friendly and attentive. They make you feel welcomed from the moment you walk in. Their menu is not overly complex and everything we've every tried has been delicious and beautifully presented. We've had occasions where they had run out of a certain wine or a certain dish and they always are able to quickly recommend or prepare an alternative. It's this kind of attention to detail and knowledge of their chef's capabilities that make it worth coming back over and over again. Very highly recommend trying Momento.
