Momofuku Má Pêche Ratings and Reviews

The chicken and waffles were like nothing I've had before. It's not just your basic fried chicken - it's got some serious heat - but balanced nicely with those corn meal waffles. Our server even got us some of the lavender maple syrup to try on them - heaven! But the best part was the panna cotta. It's something that has to be tried.

Service was really slow. We ordered cocktails and didn't receive them until after we had our meals. Food wasn't anything amazing, in my opinion. The buns were good but other options were prett standard. I expected it to be more cutting-edge cuisine.

Based on my meal at Ma Peche I cannot fathom why the chef is held in such esteem--
the food was ordinary,
casually, even negligently, served,
the low quality table-top was chipped,
the staircase down to the lower-level dining room was worn out . . . etc

I took my girlfriend here for Valentine's Day. It was our first time dining here, we usually just head to the bar for happy hour drinks/snacks. The pre-set tasting menu was pricey but, in my opinion, well worth it. The flavor and quality of the food were on point and, unlike some high-end valued restaurants, the meal was very filling; we could barely finish the dessert course. The beverage manager was great helping us decide on a bottle of wine to pair with the meal . All in all, it was a terrific evening...until the check came. After we paid our bill that came to about $250 and added a 20% tip, which seemed fair, the waitress came back to inform up that she actually under charged us $10 and needed to run our cards again, etc. I understand that mistakes happen, that's not a big deal. But after spending $300 (with about $50 of it going to the waitstaff), are you really going to chase me down for $10? The waitress brought over the manager (without us requesting her) to further explain the error. I'm not an idiot. I know what the mistake was, but the way it was handled was not reflective of the cost and value of the meal and the reputation of this restaurant or restaurateur. This isn't Applebee's where if you don't charge a customer for an appetizer it's a significant amount of the check. This was $10. You should have just taken it out of the 20% tip that we left on the bill. The food was delicious and the atmosphere, prior to the bill, was perfect. But my date and I won't be dining there again, this incident really put us off. Luckily in NYC, we have plenty of other options.

very disappointing. I'm a big fan of David Chang's but maybe he stretched too thin and losing quality control. Just a completely dead scene and sadly the food and drinks didn't make up for it. An empty room yet they wouldn't move our reservation an hour to accommodate us - to have to rush and get ready for an empty room and mediocre food on a Saturday night in NY is unforgivable.

Went to Ma Peche for breakfast. Egg Bun was good but small. The service was beyond awful. Waiter just read the paper. My coffee was average and served with a dessert spoon. Will never go back and will never recommend. There was an only three people there and the waiter did virtually nothing. Awful experience.

Great creative and upscale dinning in midtown! It will definitely become an option for special occasions, such as early dinner before the Philharmonic or Carnegie Hall. My husband and I were very pleased with the menu and ended up ordering the duck breast and the rice cake and shared the entrees. It was delicious! Highly recommend it.

I've been here so many times and have always enjoyed my meals - until today. The service was super slow, took them about 15 minutes to bring the menu then another 15 before they took our order and they weren't even busy. The nail in the coffin was the HORRENDOUSLY spicy food! There's no reason to make food so spicy!! And the stuff I ate I've eaten before! So sad I have to take them out of my rotation. Whomp whomp.

Has the feeling of a Downtown theme park in Midtown, a place where suit-clad business people can signal to colleagues and clients that they have a contemporary edge when it comes to dining. The food was a pleasure, all our dishes were well-prepared, attractively plated, and successfully combined conventional with surprising ingredients. By NYC standards, food prices were reasonable, wine list average. Our overall experience was diminished by very slow and distracted service. While I'm sure the large, backlit, sail-like clothes on the walls do wonders to keep the noise level under control, they also have an improvised look that once was chic, new and Downtownesque, now looks tired and dated. Keep the food, tighten service, give the space a makeover.

Four of us shared two of the "large" plates and four "small" plates. Servings were large enough that all were able to have adequate servings of each, and plenty to eat. Everything was so creative, and extraordinarily tasty. Good selection of wines by the glass. The service was cordial, friendly, welcoming. (I'd heard some of the Momofuko group servers could be rather snobish toward customers, but that wasn't the case here. We felt very welcomed and appreciated. A memorable evening for a friends' get-together.

This restaurant is on the bottom floor of a hotel and does nothing to intrigue you whatsoever. The decor is bland, the food is nothing special and vastly overpriced, and the entire experience leaves much to be desired. Would highly recommend against.

Complete disappointment from start to finish. Maybe Sunday night is not a great test of a restaurant but I'd expect more from DAVID Chang. Trout dip had no flavor and was so bland it could have been any fish dip. Corned beef "Ruben" buns buns were almost all fat and flavorless. Cold. The Panna cotta could have been used as wallpaper paste--zero jiggle as a Panna cotta should have and no buttermilk flavor. Service was perfunctory at best. Not sure why we kept getting refills of warm tap water as we kept asking for cold/ice water. Servers never showed up to check on us so we piled out plates on the empty table next to us. Was so psyched to try a DAVID Chang restaurant but this wasn't worth the $100+ bill

The food and service were superb - absolutely spot on. I asked for a wine recommendation and expected the usual approach of the waiter seeing if I'd bite at the suggestion of a $100+ bottle - to my surprise, he recommended a bottle at the lowest price point on the menu and it absolutely blew us away. Major points for this! Oyster buns were killer, as was the smoked trout and chicharrónes. Sous vide steak melted in your mouth. The burger is exactly what you'd expect of Dave Chang - AMAZING. Oddly enough, the fries alongside the burger were one of the evening's real standouts. Generous portions left us nearly too full to visit MilkBar upstairs. We went anyway - the Cereal Milk Shake is an absolute life-changer!
Bit of a weird space, unfortunately, being underground. Definitely quieter than I would expect for a Saturday night. With a playful, yet restrained menu, would love to see a bit more fun injected into the ambience. Also, I can't say I know anyone who actually enjoys the concept of communal tables...why are they even a thing? In fact, patron made a bit of a scene at the bar while insisting he wait for a 4-top. To the staff's credit, they handled it very well.

Lovely open space with excellent acoustics. Conversation was easily audible despite communal tables. Seating also spacious and comfortable. Drinks were delicious while both small plates, entrees and side dishes were artfully prepared and yummy. Servings are a little small and the menu is a little short on vegetarian options, but overall a very nice dinner.

We went on a Saturday Morning~ The restaurant was not busy for the first 40 minutes, we were the only table. A big rush started to come in as we were leaving. The chicken and waffles were outstanding, like, best ever. The Rice Bowl with the brisket was a must, too. The bloody mary is completely unique, our server (forgot his name) was very attentive as well as the other workers that helped clear and check on us. Will go to again!

We were there for a birthday with seven people and had a great time. We really appreciated that the waitress wrote specifics on which meals would work and which would not for one member of our party that had a few allergies (soy and gluten). There was only one main course that worked but thankfully it was one she wanted to eat the apps were delicious.

Overall, the food was marginal with a very limited menu and minuscule drinks (two sips and they are gone -- not recommended for those of us who like a bit of a tipple). The service was average; underwhelming at best.
Additionally, the host did not smile or greet us when we arrived, and seemed to be put out that he had to get off his iPhone to seat us. Unfortunately, this interaction set the tone for the rest of the meal and experience.

We went early, so it was pretty quiet. The menu is very creative with an interesting eclectic variety. We ordered a couple of small plates (beef cheek wontons and corned beef rice buns), a Roquefort, fried cauliflower and a large plate ( duck with wontons and black beans). It was hard to differentiate between the small and large plate items ( think tapas), but everything was fresh and outstanding. The beef cheek and duck were standouts. They also had a very nice beer menu. The room was a bit sparse, but that was partly to do with the time of day we were eating (6ish). Overall, a lovely food experience and the wait staff was attentive and knowledgeable.

Tenía la expectativa alta por ser parte de Momofuku, el menú muy restringido y muy normal la comida y nada especial el lugar. La gente y el servicio muy bueno eso si. Si quieres un lugar para hacer precopa con varios amigos es buena opción.

Fun menu wit great quality. We loved the dumplings, the burgers and the duck.
Finally, deserts are great but I would struggle between the panna cotta and going upstairs to the Milk Bar; and having a shake with cookies.
