The AC wasn’t functioning properly and no adjustments (fans, door kept open) made to alleviate the ridiculous humid high temp. But apparently, this wasn’t a sudden problem. Where were the FANS???

We’ve been to Mokomandy half a dozen times and enjoyed the variety of dishes. Last night must’ve been a sad anomaly. The majority of our small plates was unmemorable to .... can’t really recall.

Mokomandy never disappoints. Enjoyed a couple of our usual favorite dishes and and cocktails. Tried a couple of new dishes -- Artic Char and Korean Fried Chicken which were excellent and will become one of favorites. Just wish they would bring back their seasonal berry cobbler. Just right way to finish off an excellent dining experience!

We waited way too long to make our way over to Mokomandy, but since first coming here in March, we've been back four times. The food is excellent, the service attentive and the bar fantastic. It's certainly not the kind of dining experience one expects to find between a Food Lion and a tae kwan do studio in a Sterling strip mall.

First off let me say that Mokomandy is a truly exceptional restaurant - most of the time. This last experience was unfortunately severely sub-par. After being sat the bartender that was pouring our drinks yelled across the room at anothe employee regarding work that had to get done. We then were not spoken to again for over 15 minutes. Several food orders we placed were forgotten and we received our cocktails 45 minutes after being sat. Some food was incredible (tacos, poutine) while some (like the brisket) was badly overcooked. There was also cigarette smoke drifting in from outside as they had left the door open, and that certainly soured the experience. I would like to end by saying that we eat here frequently and have thought it to be a truly exceptional restaurant in the past, but we were severely let down this time.

Food is always good, but we felt as though we’d fallen through the cracks service-wise. Maybe a short-staffed Monday night? That would have been ok, just tell us. But no one was really paying attention to our table. So what could have been a nice anniversary dinner left us with sour stomachs.

I went here for my birthday and had an absolutely fantastic time. The specialty cocktail menu and regular menu are both so fun and unique. It's a great time trying all the different food and cocktails and I've enjoyed every single plate and drink I have had on the two occasions I've been! Highly recommend, especially if you like interesting food options and trying lots of new things.

The food is always amazing! It arrives at your table at the perfect temperature. The flavors pop! Do not order everything at one time. Order a dish and share everything! Then order another dish and continue to enjoy! The service can’t be beat! The beverages are unique and fresh! They make their own simple syrups. Very creative beverages. We have never been disappointed!
