Ma'ono Fried Chicken & Whisky
ExcellentFirst visit since the change from Spring Hill, and a great first impression. Fried chicken lived up to its reputation: done just so with excellent seasoning. Sides of asparagus and poke were superb. Our server was attentive, friendly, and paced our meal nicely.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOne to go back toEasily made reservation on line. At first the menu selection did not appeal to me ,but as soon as I saw the meals being served around me I wanted everything. We had the short ribs for appetizers and they were excellent. Their house wines were very good.
One of us had the Fried chicken and the other had the steak. Lots of food, Great flavors and had to take home left overs. A friend told me about this place and had advised me to try the fried chicken. Glad we went. We thought of a lot of friend and family who would enjoy this place and will tell them all.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a few problems someWe had a few problems some weeks ago, but I have to tell you that has been cleared up it appears to me. Food has remained excellent throughout. this is a great place, we go at least once a week and cannot stay away!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for a birthday dinnerWe went for a birthday dinner and one in our group used a walker, and there was no problem with that. The appetizers came quickly and the other dishes--which were delightfully spiced vegetables along with one chicken--also came in good time. We ordered one whole chicken for 4 of us--it was plenty and we took about 1/2 home. It was moist and tasty, but unless you are a fried chicken fan I wouldn't necessarily recommend it over the other dishes. The chocolate pudding for dessert was a perfect ending.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Restaurant Week menu wasThe Restaurant Week menu was NOT the usual rehashed, reduced portion offerings of standard menu items that you see in many restaurants. The portions were full-sized, the selections were creative and clearly showed a Hawaiian inspiration, and the waitress said they were developed especially for Restaurant Week. For instance, the ferns were crisp but caramelized, like they had been sautéed quickly on a hot grill -- excellent! So don't limit yourself to the headline fried chicken, but look for intriguing dishes in the rest of the menu.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMMa'Ono didn't disappoint.Ma'Ono didn't disappoint. The food is great, and the Fried Chicken dinner certainly lives up to its reputation, although the sides weren't all that memorable. The breakfast is outstanding as well, and who wouldn't like a bottomless mimosa that you will never see the bottom of.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food, don't neglectOutstanding food, don't neglect the sides, every single one of which was delicious, and the best Whiskey Sour I've had in ... well, I guess the best I've ever had. Delightful experience overall.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place was great! I wentThis place was great! I went there for brunch on Easter mainly for the $12 bottomless mimosas. The french toast with chicken nuggets came with both sausage gravy and syrup, and it's the best combination! The kitchen is open so you can see all the other yummy things people are ordering as well.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, very noisy andGreat food, very noisy and a bit too dark.

The Brussels sprouts in particular were the best I ever had.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMI can walk to this restaurantI can walk to this restaurant so I go often. I love the vibe at this place. It's almost always full of people and conversation and laughter, yet you can have an intimate conversation as well. Many menu items are unexpected and interesting -- which is what I like best. However they have stopped offering oysters, which I miss terribly.2/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
