Momofuku Má Pêche Ratings and Reviews
Place is tired and while the place was empty after lunch rush we had to beg for service. As well decor looks worn out. Manager complained about coming in at 5am yet she was the only person really hustling to serve us. Menu has changed way too many times at this place. Last time I'll dine here.
We had difficulty communicating with our server which led to some wrong orders. We are big David Chang fans and excited for our first chance to eat at one of his restaurants. Ramen was very ordinary, buns were great and oysters were good; Drinks were nice too.
We ate here because we had heard about the habanero fried chicken. The pieces were smaller than average but so was every other dish we ordered. The seasoning and crust for the chicken were well prepared and we enjoyed this dish. Ok, so if you are a hungry man, order your own "bucket." Server might tell you that it can be split between two people-- only if you eat like a bird. The "appetizers" didn't disappoint in taste. Though again, I would have to say that the portion sizes fell between an amuse-bouche and an appetizer. The food didn't disappoint but I for one left hungry. Yes, I know some will say order everything on the menu. So if you aren't very hungry, eat here. The food will be good. If you're "starving", eat across the street, (which we did the night before), you won't leave hungry.
Underwhelming, overrated, overpriced, simplistic. Could have gone to KFC fir this kind of meal. A lot of Momofuku-branded hot air in the heart of Midtown. The atmosphere is also very basic and unimpressive. I don't mind paying for great meals and/or experiences. This was a rip-off.
It was overall ok...food was ok (seven spice cocktail was terrific, panna cotta was overlooked and hard, we sent it back and got the cheesecake instead) service ok (floor manager way more attentive than the waiter) atmosphere in the dining room was like weird, the most interesting part was the hotel entrance and bar area...our bill was like $300 for the 4 of us and in the end there was nothing that was outstanding or that stood out which was a bit disappointing. May try SSam or Niche next time, wouldn't go back for the money we spent.
Made the reservation for my sister's birthday. Restaurant made special accommodations for my infant niece and the table was in the perfect spot for us. All of the food was great and they even put a candle in the cake for my sister. Had a great time. Thanks!
Our business party enjoyed the eclectic menu. I had duck (A+), 1 of my colleagues had the scallops (A) & the other had a burger & fries (A). The smoked trout appetizer w/chichurrones was outstanding too. The service was impeccable (save the lovely bartender who suggested Wild Turkey as a substitute for my order of Dewars). Ahhh, youth. Would definitely dine there again the next time I'm in NYC.
Been to this place around a year ago - and it was a great, an oustanding experience. - Hence I booked it again recently, for a business dinner with 9 guests. It wasn't a good experience: The food is average, the service is not very well organized. - My impression: This place has lost its soul.
Second time here. Service is top notch, and attentive. Menu is small but focused and hits all the right notes. Wine list was fun and adventurous, and pretty good value considering this place is in midtown. Decor seems like it's under construction, and is very minimal, but we came for the food. All in all a very tasty alternative to midtown dining. Oh-! Also a plus is, you're able to order desserts from the milkbar as well-!
We really enjoyed Momofuku Má Pêche. We were in town from Atlanta, and a friend recommended this restaurant. We wanted high quality food prep in a not-too-formal, -stuffy or -pricey setting, and this restaurant hit the mark. The food was excellent, and the service was great and friendly. I wouldn't call the setting entirely quiet or romantic (it wasn't loud or cold either, though), but since I wasn't planning to propose (again) to my date, that wasn't a drawback. All in all, we would certainly visit this restaurant again and would recommend to friends.
First time here. Confident waiter with good knowledge of menu details. Was able to steer us to a well rounded experience. Bright flavors. Nothing was lost in a "too many ingredients" list. Enjoyed talking with the manager about the wine list and their list of liquor. He made some great suggestions based on our conversation. Service was attentive without being pushy.
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.
Based on my meal at Ma Peche I cannot fathom why the chef is held in such esteem--
1. the food was ordinary,
2. casually, even negligently, served,
3. the low quality table-top was chipped,
4. the staircase down to the lower-level dining room was worn out . . . etc
Breakfast is perhaps not the most representative time for Ma Pêche, but it was a really pleasant way to enjoy the space in a quiet undisturbed way, with the rose lighting casting a nice morning glow. We came to have a business meeting, and the staff were very helpful when they needed to be, and unintrusive otherwise. Everyone in the party seemed happy with their food and beverage options, and my cornmeal waffles were quite tasty.
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.
