I love going to Mokomandy - especially for special events like my birthday or anniversary. It can be pricy, but the food and experience are amazing. Great and unusual mixed drinks too. It's definitely worth the drive out to Sterling/Lowes Island. Since the restaurant is popular, reservations are a must.

Mokomandy's is a jewel found in a small "plaza" along Algonkian Parkway in the Lowes Island area of Cascades. If you plan on dining on a weekend, it is best to call ahead for reservations or plan on waiting or maybe catching a seat at the bar. The drinks are worth the wait and the food is so interesting and... More

I visited this restaurant again and had a great experience. We went on a Saturday night when the restaurant was packed but we called ahead and got a table right away. We tried the Carnivore, jambalaya, and the Dry aged steak. The jambalaya was sensational as always, the carnivore sensational, the steak a little on the dry side (just slightly... More

Had the great pleasure of stopping into this restaurant on a Tuesday evening. We were surprised when the host asked if we had reservations (we did not) but there was plenty of seats at the bar. We were greeted by a very busy but very nice bartender who explained that plates should be ordered to share because they are made... More

This eatery delights and surpasses all the me too franchises, hopeful standards in sterile new malls, and "meh" joints that abound in the area. Think Cajun-Korean well executed delicious dishes by smart young quality fresh food addicted cooks and servers. You've got to look at the menu and pick, say a "Korean bowl" or po' boy, or gumbo, and enjoy... More

We are from out of town, recently traveling in Peru where we had so many culinary delights that I have been underwhelmed with the sameness of many culinary efforts since returning home. That was until our local family took us to this jewel for Saturday lunch. The service was great, very personalized. We made our dietary constraints known so they... More

My husband and I travelled quite a bit and tried a range of very good restaurants. This is definitely a jem restaurant in Sterling, VA. A young staff, with a relaxed almost hippyish attire but professional. As for the food, it is excellent. If you want to splurge for the "catch of the day" seafood entree, please do, you will...
