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

In my top 5 restaurants in and around DC. Menu is interesting to say the least. Food does not disappoint no matter what you order. Drinks are expertly crafted and made fresh to order.

Amazing Cocktails and delicious small plates! Be sure to make a reaction as they are busy and for good reason! Try the Ransom gin cocktail.

It seems like tapas style restaurants are very popular these days! They serve the food this way at Mokomandy, making a group of friends or family the perfect way to share food here! The menu has lots of choices, I tried many of the items, I can't say I was disappointed with any of them! The service is friendly and... More

I'm happy to agree with so many other reviewers: this neighborhood restaurant is special. Its unusual fusion menu provided us with extremely interesting and delightful tastes. We shared 4 "medium" plates, and enjoyed each one. This amount was generous for two people. We had Bison dumplings, foie gras dumplings, Soft Shell Crab Po'Boys, and Shrimp Tempura. In case the last... More

Didn't know what to expect as a friend of my wife had picked it. Arriving it did not look promising as I am not normally a lover of strip mall restaurants. The interior was in the category of "all I could do with what I was given" and it was very casual. Turned out it was great fun with a... More

Great spot in Sterling to have a DC dining experience. Quality food, excellent bar service, and personable staff. The fusion of southern & Asian cuisine is delicious. Perfect for a night out with the girls, friends, or date night.

This seems like a place where you might want to share menu items. There are a few large plates, but mainly medium and small plates. Since I was dining alone, I tried the Jalapeño hush puppies and the shrimp and grits. Both were very good. I did find that the menu items did seem to be separated into Cajun or... More

This improbable Korean-Cajun/Creole restaurant is another 'small plates' restaurant which doesn't appeal to everyone. It has an imaginative menu with some fairly exotic combinations which don't always work. It also has a good wine list and is popular on wknds. What is a little disconcerting is that the plates come to the table when they are ready, so it's not... More

This restaurant is always packed, so be sure to make reservations! The reason it's always packed is because the food is excellent and the drinks are amazing! Yes, the drinks are pricey, but totally worth it! Love the atmosphere as well.
