Just plain awful

It was just plain awful.

But where do I begin?

Uninspired decor? Cafeteria quality food? Laughable food presentation? Waitpersons who are socially strange and who know almost nothing about what’s on the menu? A manager who lets customers order menu items based on the ingredients described on the menu when he knows that the ingredients are unavailable?

What about the fabulous brunch “buffet”? Cold grits, greasy cheesy hash-browns and bacon soaking in its own fat. Some sliced fruit and an “assortment” of salami (3) and cheeses (2), complete with a huge fly who seemed to prefer the cheeses to the salami.

How about bringing everyone’s food at significantly different times? Or bringing us things that we didn’t order? Or bringing the second round of the same drink where the second round was made completely differently than the first?

How about a steak and egg order “in red eye gravy” that translated to two runny scrambled eggs, a fat laden cut of steak and no “red eye gravy” pathetically served on a huge, white charger-size plate with a scattering of dried parsley flakes?

How about the steak’s seasoning? What was that ingredient that tasted ever so subtly of kerosene? (In fairness, our dog seemed to enjoy it).

But the ultimate insult in this culinary nightmare was the price. The folks at the Bistro seem to believe that a brunch experience such is this is worth $20-$25 per person. Had I known what was coming, I would have gladly paid that sum just to escape the ordeal.

All that said, if you’re in the mood for an expensive, pretentious culinary nightmare, this is the place to go. Given that this was the most bizarre and displeasing dining experience that I have ever experienced, I can only hope that there is no place worse.

Dinning Experience @ MoMo's Bristo

Visiting South Carolina is always an insteresting experience. My husband and I decided to take fmily out for dinner and my husband liked the menu for MoMo’s. On April 7th at (MoMo’s the hostess (we had reservations) escorted us to the very back of the restaurant, passing numerous empty tables. Only one table had customers. We did not sit there and the hostess did not seem to like this. The food was not outstanding. The fried oysters, chewy. I had the broiled grouper and it was very dry and we had to ask for additional veggies. The risotto had only 2 green peas, not what was described on the menu. The servers were very polite and friendly. It was not worth $206 and we will never eat at this place again. Oh yes from the entry I knew this would be the first and only time at MoMo’s. Perhaps they do not want people of color at this restaurant. This was shared with my family while visiting SC.

A Must

One of the finest in Columbia. It is still excellent even after Christopher left. Freshly prepared food.
