At MOA, we aim to serve guests with the highest quality, raw meats, including dry-aged beef options, while also providing an upscale, full service where our servers will handle all of the grilling in order to get the most enjoyment out of your barbecuing.

Reservations: We are excited to serve the Uptown Charlotte area, and can not wait for everyone to visit us! That being said, we are operating with safety for our guests, and staff, in mind during this pandemic. We kindly ask for understanding that reservation times may vary slightly, due to our seating limitations to social distance. We thank you for your understanding during this time!

UPDATE: Per Governor Coopers Executive Order, as it pertains to restaurants, the new rule also requires customers at restaurants to wear masks — even while seated at a table — unless they are actively drinking or eating. Please keep this in mind when planning to dine with us.

It would be at max $60 with more food and a wider array of banchan in a place like Quarters in LA, at least pre-C19. The banchan was just a few colorless salads. Kimchi was good :) Our server was beyond fantastic and the place itself is very classy, while not necessarily "Korean". The only thing that gives it away is the table grills. Caveat: I am coming from having been very spoiled by Quarters in K-town LA and that's my measuring stick when it comes to modern KBBQ establishments.

Being fans of Korean food we decided to book a table. It was well worth it! Excellent food, fantastic service and while a bit more expensive than we had planned it was worth the extra $$ I would recommend to anyone in the city and would return if I’m ever back in Charlotte

Table of 6 - adequate amount of protein, but very skimpy on sides (hot & cold) and didn't come around to offer more. Just like another recent review, very little instruction on how to use the grill, adjust temp, cook foods etc. All side items were very small and splitting between 6 people was scarce. When asked to bring more sides and rice, server reluctantly came back with more but I subsequently learned that I was charged on the bill for the rice ($2/bowl - not a big deal in the overall, but don't make it a surprise). The entire experience was very lack luster, likely would not go back simply due to ambiance and overall experience.

The only downfall or irritating experience was our appointment or reservation was at 11:30 AM. We walked in literally at 11:29 AM and the rude bartender told us that we had to wait one more minute to come in. Then why have the door open? It just said off everything in a negative way, thank God the food was really good and my waitress. But that bartender was very rude and not accommodating I just couldn’t believe that he made us wait for one minute, unacceptable!

Did not get to table until 830pm. The waitress was too busy to tend to my table. There was 3 people total that came by to assist in cooking food. We did not receive a portion of meal, was not offered more than one drink, water was not poured, the last course was left on grill to burn. The waitress then came by to offer us to go boxes for the burnt food. We expressed that we did not want burnt food. She Did not offer to re cook at all and handed us the check as if our time was up. It appeared that the party next to us was far more important as they kept her attention. Very dissatisfied.

Our table for 6 was accompanied by storage items and carts, a complete after thought is what it felt like. Our waitress was great, however our entire dining experience lacked finesse. Very little instruction on how to use the grill, adjust temp, cook foods etc…hot side items were very small and splitting between 6 people was scarce. The entire experience was very lack luster, likely would not go back simply due to ambiance and overall experience.

The 2nd hostes we encountered was also amazing. She came by our table with a warm greeting and water after we were basically ignored by the 1st hostess (she had on a long cream dress) This service given by the 1st hostess was horrific. Our first encounter was when we called about parking. She seemed bothered that she had to answer the phone. Upon our arrival, she gave no formal greeting and clearly had an attitude. She sat our stuff at the closest table in the front (basically in the lobby), said nothing, and just walked off. We could see her from where we sat. Most of the time she sat in the front on her phone (she was the brunette with black pants, a black pullover, and her hair was in a bun). The seats we had were horrible. As stated, we were in the very front, basically in the lobby. It was a very high traffic area right by the bathroom. After a while it became annoying having to deal with people constantly walking closely by us and dealing with the noise of the lobby while peoplw were waiting on their table. The food was good. It didn't blow me away but it was good food. I have no complaints. I was frustrated by the restaurant promoting "valet parking" in the confirmation email. Parking in a garage with a validated ticket isnt valet parking. Its free parking. That would not have been an isssue if it were advertised as free parking and the address to the garage was given ahead of time. Overall, I do not regret choosing this restaurant to celebrate my partners birthday. However, I dont think I will be visiting again. I expected the service, seating, and ambiance to be much better considering the costs. Please note, my initial intention was to rate this restaurant with 2 stars but the service of the server and 2nd hostest make me increase my rating.
