Cool restaurant in West Seattle, packed for brunch, great food, great service, but the homemade sausage looked incredible and just when I ordered it they ran out. Damn, I have to go back. Great breakfast place!

Brunch here is the absolute best! Chad has been my waiter almost every time, and we love him! Recommend this place over any brunch in West Seattle! The French toast and bottomless mimosas for $12?? Can't get better than that! Love your faves Chad, Tawn and Pay. :)

Great neighborhood place. They were able to seat 6 of us without a reservation. Burgers were the bomb! And the appetizers were delicious! Great service also!

The fried chicken is definitely a treat and a comforting meal. It is so tasty, crispy and juicy. I enjoyed it and will definitely be returning.

I've only been here for brunch, but I've been here several times! They have a brunch menu which has some classic Hawaiian fare - loco moco, saimin, spam masubi. But they also have a lot of interesting twists. Coconut congee, coconut French toast, fried chicken. Their drink menu is extensive and their coffee is delicious and bottomless. Service is always...

I live in west Seattle and love this restaurant. The food is amazing and the drinks. Ambiance is ok. It's loud, can be hot with the open kitchen and not super romantic. You can't miss eating here, the food is fantastic. Ramen and poke are our faves.

At Ma'ona there is so much to choose from the truly creative offerings. For brunch the Eggs Benedict and Coconut French Toast are excellent. Big portions. Excellent service even on a crowded Sunday at noon. Vibe is lively and fun. Ma'ona is a sure thing.

At least by taking out, it wasn't as noisy as it was the last time we were here. I don't personally get it. White meat on the fried chicken is dry. Dark meat is just ok. Not impressed. All the sides we ordered were way better that their fried chicken.
