Visit to NYC
So disappointing. Does not represent the Momofuko name well. Both food and ambiance are below average.
The service and the food are always superior. Great place.
Wasn't bad but wasn't great. Expected more interesting food and more diverse menu. Portions grilled trout entree were appetizer size.
As usual, the fried chicken is wonderful. You can’t go there and not have it.
Pretty horrible service.
Amazing food!! We had the outstanding smoked trout dip and pork buns to start off our meal, paired that with Mazcal Mule and Penicille cocktails. And for second course, we shared the Pan Roasted Branzino, which was heavenly. We paired our second course with a glass of 2015 Forge Riesling and 2016 Lieu Dit Sauvingnon blanc. It was a delicious night — we’ll make few more reservation here before June 13.
We had an excellent meal before attending an equally excellent concert at Carnegie Hall.
Was with a baby and that impacted our schedule tremendously. Restaurant was kind enough to move our reservation back which was greatly appreciated! Service was great. Food was good, but was hoping for a ramen or chicken wings like downtown. Despite not having that, was a good meal and a good time.
I love ma peche and wish it wasn't closing soon! It is great to have a momofuku restaurant uptown and on opentable. Hope to get more options in NYC soon!
Very nice, unassuming dining. The food spoke for itself without any flashy decor/ambiance. I felt relaxed the whole time!
Overall mediocre. My wife ordered a glass of wine and water came out of the bottle.
The waiter profusely apologized but no manager came by.
Chicken Habenero is very spicy, order honey to cut the spice.
Highly disappointing. The food was OK, nothing memorable. The service felt a little hurried, the decoration lacking.
Amazing food and good service.
This was my first Momofuku dining experience and everything lived up to expectations. The food was unique and delicious. The cocktails were amazing. I had the Kimchi-Bacon burger and the flavors were exceptional. I’ll be back here again.
Great food and service! Casual but delish eats!
Wished I lived in NYC- for this restaurant only. The Chang did not disappoint. Don’t make the same mistake we did and go on the last day your visit- get off the plane and take a cab straight there. You’ll thank me later.
The kimchi bacon burger was a bit too salty. It may not be the best idea to put so many strong ingredients into one dish. Maybe putting more lettuce or veggies would help neutralize the flavor a bit.
I was unimpressed. Stark and cafeteria-like atmosphere seemed odd for evening dining. Minimal menu. Pork buns were cold and steak $71 — was so rare it was inedible. Very disappointing.
I highly recommend this restaurant ! The place is really nice. The food and cocktails are delicious, with a creative cuisine. The personal is kind and take time to give you good advice.
Came here with my wife on Easter Sunday for brunch. We had a reservation and were seated promptly. Service was a bit mixed even though they were not full (yet) when we started, had to ask for milk and sugar for my tea several times.
The food experience was also mixed. A couple of the dishes were were good-very good; the matcha pancakes and the pork chorizo hash. However the smoked trout dip had too much cream and not enough smoked trout and the corned beef buns were mediocre at best.
Overall a mixed experience and over-priced.
I would never recommend this restaurant for anything!
My family and I went on a friends recommendation and were excited to go. Unfortunately the food did disappoint overall, the ceviche tasted exquisite but the presentation was visually unappealing. The server said their most popular dish was the fried chicken, so we ordered it. Basically kfc with some heat. The best dish was the steak and potatoes. The rainbow trout was overdone and the skin burnt which permeated the dish with burnt flavour. I would not recommend this restaurant.
This is my second visit to MaPeche. Loved the experience both times. The food was elegant, delicious and very visually pleasing. The staff were very attentive. Would book again but have heard that MaPeche is closing in the end of June. Thank you for a great meal and experience.
We were blown away by the flavors of each dish. The pork buns are a favorite - you have to get these - the pork just melts in your mouth. We had an amazing time.
Very quiet place, decor was not appealing. Food was okay, pricy for the quality. Toast tasted like smoke although they were not totally carbonized... Not the wrost place, but I would’t recommand it.
Ordered "Medium Rare" but part of the meat was black (beyond well done).
Nice take on chinese rice cakes - more like gnocchi
Loved visiting and dining with friends from out of town. Service was excellent and the waiter did not rush us out once dessert was served. Great place for a leisurely meal and catch up conversation. The decor is simple but elegant. Rice served with steak could have been warmer in temperature, but tasted excellent and the steak was first class in searing and seasoning. Would definitely dine here again, and would like to visit other Momofuku restaurants to sample their menus.
Great Meal. Service was ok. Would have been nice to receive bread/crackers. Waitress did not offer us a 2nd drink...
Food was wonderful as always. Sorry, you are closing.
We had a lot of fun talking with guests at the next table.
great experience, it was my birthday, they gave us complimentary sparkling wine and the food and recommendations were fantastic
The restaurant is nice, and the service was superb however, every single dish there was something a little off: burnt toast on the duck liver, which was a shame because the pate was delicious but the after taste was of the burnt bread, some of the sauces were too salty, or missing salt. In general it was a nice experience, but for being part of the Momofuku family I was disappointed with the food. I'm a huge fan, and this, unfortunately did not live to expectations.
The fried chicken was awful. Over-brined, leaving the white meat plastic-y and the dark was slimy. So disappointing relative to Nishi which left me speechless for how amazing the flavors, balance and sophistication.
Came back for the habanero chicken; makes it twice in two annual trips to NYC. Everything was great, except that I really don’t expect to have to raise a stink about a “policy that we can’t seat you unless everyone in the party has arrived”, when we’re with a hungry two-year old. That’s a reasonable request in general, but some flexibility is in order. Once seated, as expected, everything was superb.
Great food and the setting is nice. The high ceilings make having a conversation easy to hear. Food was simply delicious. Service was wonderful and I was comfortable in jeans and a button down, not fussy at all.
Super tasty food and amazing service - our waitress proactively asked if we were going to a show afterward and made sure we were done in time to make it.
Delicious food with friendly and attentive service. Hurry in since Ma Peche closes on June 13.
Food nothing like it used to be. Not up to Chang standards.
No wonder it's closing. Meh all around, but good quality. Of course pork buns were highlight.
