“Unexpected location for fine dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

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.

“Well worth it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

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 this calibre that offers a true children menu.

Unfortunately, for all sunshine a little rain must fall. In this case it was raining coffee. The French Pressed coffee was literally putrid. I think something just went wrong in the process and I doubt strongly this is status quo. Such a sad ending to an otherwise phenomenal experience.

I shall return.

“Lucky to live around the corner from this place...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

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.

“Creative Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012 via mobile

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.
