Momofuku Má Pêche Ratings and Reviews
Some food was surprisingly so-so - the burger and underdone fries, the burnt duck liver toast , not expected for David Chang. Main courses for 3 took an hour to arrive. They weren't even apologetic or comp a drink for the delay. I live next door so I'd go back for habanero lime chicken which was very good,and the rice cakes which I always love, but if they will do take out I'll probably prefer that.
It's always great to find a place that really cares about the food it serves, that takes the food seriously. I went with a group of 5 friends; we ordered a bunch of small plates & a few large plates. There was an excellent variety of tastes & textures, of interesting ingresdients, of lovely presentations. I highly recommend this place.
Great food overall!
Our waitress was No Smile Whole time!
It seem very very unhappy 🙁
Way out I said to her “ Thank You !” she had No smiles 😬😬😬
Not only her but older lady then our waitress she was like sommelier there she had Sad & unhappy too☹️
I’m not sure if I’ll go back.
table was not ready on time. White wine was served in room temperature, while the hostess was making up a story about the wine being served in cellar temperature. The entire service was very unprofessional and it seems the restaurant is in decline. I come to this restaurant 3-4 times a year, but this would probably be the last time, as obviously something is not going right over there.
Super dry fried chicken and dry fish. Flat and dull presentation of the porgy dish. Little flavor left us wondering what all the hype was about. Service was lovely and when we sent back the chicken the manager came to apologize. I think the floor staff is doing what they can but I have no idea what is going on in that kitchen.
Over salted food- a cardinal sin..
No temp difference between medium and rare in a hangar steak. (we both ordered different
Even though the restaurant was literally empty felt pushed out the door.
Having been to a few Momofuku properties.. I wont come back here. Not work the time or cost.
Bar was good though..
Very lackluster for breakfast. The menu is extremely limited and unoriginal. Expected more from a Momofuku spot. While the egg, cheese, and bacon bao was tasty, pretty much everything else was below par. The coffee was undrinkable and the fruit bowl I ordered came with a banana with gray spots...Really should not have served a banana like that.
What was convenient is that there is a Milk bar adjoined, and Ma Peche is probably relatively good for a hotel breakfast, but everything was on average, mediocre.
Just as advertised, it's close quarters, so you'll be eventually talking with other tables. We ended up getting birthday dessert from next table. Staff friendly, scene is younger and business hip and a little pricey. Drinks are pretty strong...try the "Penicillin".
Brunch on Sunday for 6. Service was just terrible. It took 25 minutes for Bloody Marys...which server told us were premade so if we wanted less spicy or more spicy, that wasn’t possible. Oh and she said we only have one bartender. That is not MY problem. Getting drinks in a reasonable time is YOUR job. Tap water took forever too. We had two kids in our group who were starving. When we sat down we asked the server if she could rush the Egg buns for them...another 25minutes. Finally after we told the server we were going to theatre and had to get moving, the food finally came, almost an hour after we sat down. Really unacceptable. The restaurant wasn’t even full. Seemed there was no management in charge...and our server clearly didn’t care or understand that we wanted to eat in a reasonable fashion.
Having said all that, the food was pretty delicious. We had everything...waffles and fried chicken, egg BLT, Salmon toast..eggs with everything which were all perfectly cooked and oozing. Menu items cannot be altered either, we tried that. No way.
This is my last visit to Peche.
This was our second Momofuko experience. Both this location and Vegas have been great meals, topped off by crazy good cookies from the Milk Bar.
The staff here provided great, friendly service. The manager went out of her way to make sure that we had an enjoyable evening.
We booked this for a tourist day lunch and it suited that well. Food was of good quality with the starters being best. For lunch Ma Peche perhaps suits having a selection of starters that would give you a broad range of tastes and ample food for a lunch. Overall experience was good.
The food was mediocre at best. Not sure what happened. Been to other Momofuku properties and all are very consistent. The toast on the duck liver pâté was like a rock. Couldn't even cut it with a steak knife. Did not even eat it. The main course was bland with no spices and was smothered with TONS of onions.
Our waiter Carter was very helpful and friendly. I brought my college first year daughter with one of her friends for brunch before a show. My daughter had been wanting to try Momofuku for quite a while. Our friend is a vegetarian, so she had the macha pancakes, which she loved. We started with the pork buns, which were a little fatty for us. We pulled apart the meat a little, and left the fatty parts, and they were yummy. I had the fried chicken and waffles which was delicious, but not dainty to eat - and my daughter had the rice bowl, which she enjoyed. We went to the Milk Bar afterwards for cookies to go. I had wanted to buy some of the amazing hot sauce we had on our table, but forgot - so I ordered it online today.
