If you are anywhere close to this place, just go. Expensive and worth every penny. This was our second visit. Wrath Chardonnay was our wine of choice. We had 3 of their small plate starters. Mixed Fries, Jalapeno Hush-Puppies and Korean Cucumber Salad. All awesome, but the hush-puppies got better later. For our main we had the Kobe Carpaccio and... More

The fusion of cajun and Korean is truly unique. You won't find this blend anywhere else in the DC area, that is for sure. Even their specialty cocktails are a treat. Don't be fooled by the shopping center facade, the restaurant is energetic, modern and sleek. They offer many smaller tapas style dishes so it is a great place to... More

The food is unique and creative. The Foie Gras Dumplings are a must try! We also enjoyed the Boudin Balls. There were several things on the menu that we want to try on a future visit. Reservations are necessary, they're only open in the evenings and were very busy the night we went.

The food here is both eclectic and creative. The menu is concise yet offers a wealth of variation. Their "speciality" drinks offer local distillates and are as creative as the food. Mokomandy is truly non-pretentious and is fit for a family - including very small children. Off the top of my head I can think of no other restaurant of... More

Lucky to live right around the corner from this restaurant. This has become our favorite date night place to go. Everything on the menu is delicious and love the fusion of flavors from asian and southern cuisines.

Fantastic food, great service and truely innovative cocktails. We had many things on the menu. All were exceptional and I particularly liked the deviled eggs and jambalia. Be sure to get a reservation as we saw multiple walk in parties turned away.

We did the recommended sharing. We ordered 3 entrees (one of each size) and 3 desserts, because we couldn't choose. We started with the Kobe Carpaccio. It was super fine shaved beef with sprouts, pine nuts and pears. There was some kind of sauce that was absolutely delicious. After, we got the Modern Korean Scallops. This was easily the best...

We tried this restraunt for the first time based on location (walking distance) and word-of-mouth recommendations. Perhaps I have traveled to too many countries, but I felt let down by the food and the service. I encouraged our friends to join us and felt embarrased afterwards. The waiter told us about the sharing concept but never provided us appropriate plates,... More

A truely american consept.. As people blend, so does food, Mokomandy is a reflection of this. Nicely delivered. Once you read the menu, you realize that this HAS to be a local restraunt. Who would think of this? Then you stay and try, then you love.. Thank you.
