Mokomandy's is our go-to celebratory restaurant. We have been there more than a few times in the last several years. We always know that the bits of lusciousness from the tapas style menu will cause us to pause and celebrate the compatible married flavors of each dish. The recommendations from the service staff are spot on in describing the taste... More

Been many times and have always had great food and experience. The wait staff is very good and attentive to any questions you may have about the unique menu. Also have a very extensive beer selection!

We just happened upon Mokomandy our first visit and were very satisfied. It's a bit far for us to travel so we save Mokomandy for special occasions. I would recommend making a reservation before you go. It's rather small and seems to always be full. The last time we were here we had the Jambalaya, Split Bone Marrow with Onion... More

This place is fantastic! !! I always make it a point to eat here at least once every time I'm in town! Every dish is superb! You must share with the group when here so you can try more of these very unique dishes. Highly recommend the Potroast Sliders!!!

We were in town visiting my brother and sister in law and they could not stop raving about Mokomandy! So we took the 2 minute drive up the road and wow...first you notice the amazing service team. We were greeted at the door, immediately sat and showered with attention. Then you notice the flavors. They are second to none. This... More

Mokomandy serves small dish tapas style selections which are both Creole and Korean, not fusion, but a pairing of two distinctive styles. We ordered sides, which were very good--Korean cucumbers in a slightly spicy vinegar sauce, kimchee pancakes (excellent), and a mix of russet and sweet potato fries. Other dishes we tried included a spicy tempura of rock shrimp, a... More

This place is in a shopping center so it doesn't look like anything special but... oh boy it is fantastic! It has very limited so make sure you make a reservation even on a week night. Really good food with menu options changing seasonally, great wine selection, outstanding service. This place is a must!

We visited this restaurant with friends and thought it was so good that we would try it again to see if it was as good the second time. If anything, it was better. The food is a fusion of Korean and Cajon cooking and is inspired. It is casual, very friendly, the staff is knowledgable and all have been there... More

Our dinning experience was poor. The restaurant only had three tables occupied and service was still slow. In addition to informing us ahead of time that a number of menu items were unavailable, several selections we considered were also unavailable after checking with the kitchen. Excuse was, chef was working on dinner prep/menu - what happened to preparing for lunch?... More

Very popular restaurant. Small space, so you need to make reservations especially on weekends. We prefer to sit at the bar and have the expert bartenders make fabulous cocktails for us as we eat. Fairly adventurous small and medium plates. Have only had desert once, because we are usually too full. Favorite dishes: bone marrow, veal tacos (in lettuce cups... More
