Has anyone eaten here before and if so what's the word on the street?

    I have eaten there. It was very good. Unfortunately, I think it's closed, and Tobie Puttock's "fifteen" (collaboration with Jamie Oliver) is where Momo used to be.

          Yep, exactly what I was asking about. Sorry for the confusion.

          So, anyone eaten there recently?

          Website still isn't up to date. http://www.momorestaurant.com.au/

      Review in The Age today. 16.5/20 - very smart dining room, excellent to superb food, astonishingly expensive but with lot of freebie sides.

        Amazing - dined there on April 25. Excellent service, restrained decor with private lift to lower levels of recently refurbished Grand Hyatt. Prices match the 5 star environment. First time I have paid over $50+ for a main dish in Melbourne that wasn't a seafood special. The pigeon pie was impressive, layer upon layer of super thin pastry masked a lovely spiced squab. Worth the wait, and go before the buzz becomes a drone.

          I live in Canada so it will be a while before I can make it out there but I'm glad it's good. Greg Malouf is someone I have been following for a long time and I've really liked his cookbooks.
