Except for my Moldovan host mom's, of course, this was the best Moldovan food I've ever had. They make their own sausages, sauces, pies, and lots of other things in-house. The menu has classic Moldovan dishes served in a modern way and plenty of Moldovan...More

We had a very nice dinner at Moldova. We all had a hard time deciding what to order because there were so many things we wanted to try. Service was pleasant and unhurried. All the food was full of flavor and well prepared. The chicken...More

Came in here for lunch and we ordered several items that looked good on the menu, but the overall taste, especially the italianate-inspired dish lacked some polish in taste and texture. Sorry, others may find this restaurant exceptional, we did not. I think I will...More

This restaurant's decor is simple, but the food is anything but; in fact, it's extraordinary. The portions are hearty so we had plenty to take home after sharing two appetizers and an entree each. The combination of flavors were like nothing I've had before, yet...More

Not sure what was going on or what this place intends to use as a theme or focus, but not very inviting. I see they are expanding which may help the odd atmosphere. Food was very good but our server was having a bad night....More
