First time visitor left all time lover of this place! Amazing fried chicken
Fried chicken + Macaroni and kimcheese = Yes please forever.
Chicken. Get the half or full. The quarter won’t cut it once you taste it. Perfectly cooked. Great batter with enough spices. Juicy chicken. While fine by itself, the hot mustard dipping sauce is a nice addition. Oh yeah everything else you order will also be great.
My favorite fried chicken in Washington and because they offer a gluten-free version, I can have authentic real fried chicken that doesn't taste like GF! One of my favorite places in west Seattle, just remember to call ahead if the chicken is what you are after, as it goes fast! (24 hr notice for GF) Ask for the popcorn ice cream - surprisingly good! Both are addictive!
Im so glad we ordered the fried chicken in advance cause they were sold out by the time we were seated at 830. My Manhattan cocktail was perfect as was the fried rice (our favorite of everything we ordered). The brussel sprouts we good but not great. Overall we had a wonderful Valentine's day dinner.
We went to one of our favorites, Ma'ono as a Valentine's treat. The fried chicken and poke are both fantastic (order the chicken 24 hours in advance) but sadly this time the chicken was over fried. Despite that it was still very tasty, if just too dry.
The poke, was out of this world delicious, and the cocktails are good, although there have been much change in the drinks menu for the last year.
Gluten free fried chicken is outstanding for you're of us who can not easy the regular fare any longer, and the staff is helpful in knowing what else on the menu can be made gf.
The fried chicken was excellent. Our server, Willow, was friendly and knowledgeable. Although it is quite noisy during Sunday brunch, my friend (who I hadn't seen in a decade) and I had no trouble hearing each other while catching up and conversing.
This was my fourth or fifth time to this restaurant, although it’s probably been over a year since I was there last. I’ve always loved it. While the service was excellent, the menu had shrunk and the food although tasty, was not as good as it once was. The “new” burger, was a wet messy burger and quickly became a knife and fork burger. The meal was highly salted. Missing on the menu were some amazing sides including the carrots. It was very loud in the restaurant and it was tough to hear my table mate. Wishing the previous menu would come back....
Good service but aside from the chicken and the vegetables, there aren’t great share items. Better for smaller groups but fast service all around.
The gluten-free chicken is amazing! The whole family was satisfied and would've never known it was gluten-free if we had not told them !
Went to celebrate a job promotion. Ma’ono did not disappoint. We live this restaurant, and it is one of Seattle’s hidden gems.
Had the Fatty saimin. Never disappoints.
Terrific place for any occasion! It was my wife's birthday, and I'm not sure if the front desk let the wait staff know that, but beyond that, the food was great, the wait staff very attentive, and the whisky list at this place is unbelievable. A gem of Seattle!
The fried chicken was worth it! We reserved a whole bird for our party of 6 and it was the perfect amount. The side dishes were creative and tasty.
Food was extremely good. Restaurant was clean. A very good destination restaurant to try something new.
Amazing as always!! Can't say enough good things about this place. Service is incredible and food is to die for.
I saw this restaurant on tv and the chicken looked so good, along with other food items. It was my husbands birthday, so 7 of us decided to try this restaurant because my husband LOVES chicken. I had reservations and we were seated right away, which was nice. We ordered 1 whole chicken and a half of a chicken. I thought the chicken was VERY expensive... $49 for 15 pieces of chicken! Wow!! We ordered several of the side dishes too. The beet salad was SO GOOD! We really enjoyed the Mac & cheese, Loco Moco was the bomb, the broccoli was great and the curry bacon rice. However; none of our party was really thrilled with the fried chicken. The chicken was VERY crispy, but the meat was a bit dry. We did really enjoy all the flavors in the side items. The one thing that was not pleasant at all, is how loud it was in the restaurant. We could not hardly hear ourselves talk and it was hard to communicate with the waiter. I tried it (a new restaurant), but not sure I would make another reservation.
The noise level makes it very difficult to talk and be heard. Nothing cozy at all about dining at Ma'Ono.
Just keeps getting better. Ma'Ono is so on its game. This is hands down the best restaurant in West Seattle and the food rivals anything downtown. While the menu isn't huge, they do everything right. We shared the beet salad, Poke, curried rice, fried chicken, washed down with beautiful IPA's (and did I mention superb cocktails to begin?) I'd recommend a reservation if you don't want to wait (at least on weekends, when we usually go. And our server ("Tyler") was simply the best, unhurried, unpretentious, yet totally professional. Another homerun by Ma'Ono.
