Momofuku Má Pêche Ratings and Reviews
We made our reservation though Open table and indicated in the website that we had a celiac in our party. There was almost nothing in the menu for a celiac. It would have been good of the restaurant to email us and let us know. Moreover, our waiter behaved as if all was great and there were plenty of options for celiacs, which was not true. For a menu with lots of fish and rice cakes, we expected some more options.
The squash salad was passable. The scallops were really great.
I suppose we had very high expectations and the experience was not that great.
We found out our daughter is a celiac some time ago, and usually, restaurants are much more accommodating with this restriction.
We could have left, but I really wanted to try Dave Chang's food.
The cheesecake was to die for! It had the texture of a crumbled Mexican flan. I got the buns and the heirloom tomato salad, and they gave a complimentary squash salad. The seasoning was great, the heirloom tomato salad not so much. But the sake was a great relief before a big day!
We came here looking for innovate and delicious food. We were not disappointed. The Asian bun appetizers were off the charts good. This was brunch so I opted for the habanero chicken and waffles. The chicken was a little spicier than I bargained for but still really good. The waffles were maybe the best I've had. My companion had a rice bowl(forgot which one)and it was outstanding. The craft cocktails were memorable. The Mezcal Mule(s) made me happy
We were looking for a fairly quiet restaurant not to far from Times Square, with innovation cuisine and Ma Peche was perfect. The waitstaff and bartender were helpful and friendly. Although the decor was a little stark, it was still pleasing and quiet for a New York Restaurant. The food was creative and delicious
At 10 am on a Monday, we were the only people there for breakfast so it hard to judge the ambiance. The food was great but the menu was smallish and I wished for one of two more original choices (we picked the two most distinctive: had eggs with lox and thick yogurt, a casserole of chorizo and poached eggs). I would definitely go again. Prices were reasonable.
We were extremely disappointed in our breakfast/brunch. We arrived for the first seating at 10 am and proceeded to watch everyone around us receive their food. We waited patiently however, it was as if we disappeared in the eyes of the restaurant. There were no coffee refills.
When food did finally arrive (45 minutes after we ordered), two meals were cold and the pork belly in the pork belly bun was not cooked fully. The manager came over when we informed one of our servers about the temperature of the food. She offered to reheat but we refused as we did not want to wait another 45 minutes. She took one meal off our bill and apologized. There were no further inquiries about our meal, no further apologies, or check ins from any other staff. Very disappointing and waste of money. We won't return, nor would we recommend to friends.
Not worth it for the price you pay. For a group of 7 we had a 800 bill and still left hungry. The branzino was probably the best tasting thing on the menu. We had the Wagyu beef, fried chicken, branzino, oysters for apps, corn beef buns as well as soft shell crab buns and scallops. Not impressed, would not return and would not recommend.
Service was incredibly slow and the restaurant was only 1/3 full. I was embarrassed as I had recommended the restaurant to my out of town friends. To start we ordered a cheese plate to share (which was delicious) but took 30 minutes to arrive at the table. We were then told by a very unfriendly wait person/Manager? (not our initial waitress or waiter in the end) to place any more food orders asap as the kitchen was closing. But we had not even received our entrees yet. The mixed drinks were good, and the steak and eggs were excellent. The matcha pancakes, pork buns and brisket rice bowl were ok. Our initial waitress and then our waiter for the second half were both nice and they were good about refilling water. But no one ever acknowledged the long wait from the kitchen and I don't know why there was a person rushing us to order more when we had not received our entrees yet.
I was looking forward to trying this restaurant, and the server was great and the veggie side dishes (which we got as appetizers) were delicious. We got a whole Branzino for our dinner to share, and I just didn't feel the taste was great. The curry totally overpowered the fish....and you were left just tasting curry.
Afterwards, we used the restroom before heading on our way.....we were one of 5 people in the restaurant at that point, but the bathroom was a disaster. Dirty, yucky and without any toilet paper.
I had really hoped to like it, and we did like aspects of it, but overall, thought it was pricey for what we got.
This restaurant could and should have been much better than it was. Perhaps it's better suited for dinner than brunch- which is when our party of six went. In this day and age, they should make sure to offer a vegetarian large plate option, especially since one was shown on the website menu. Also, waitstaff should be trained to offer dessert before bringing the bill.
This trip yields really different experience. Ladies room had homeless person locked in handicap stall, bags and the like left in the middle of the floor. Bartender didn't offer refills on drinks. Just disappointed overall. Soft shell po boy was warm, onion rings were cold. I'm saying skip it!
We were the first ones there at 1130 on a Friday. The server was so nice and suggested the Pork Bun not listed on the menu but always available for order!
Everything was delicious! The ramen had pickled mushrooms (I think) and it was AMAZING! The broth was so flavorful!
Can't wait to go back :)
Not anywhere near as outstanding as it once was, but Má Pêche can still impress and even delight, especially with the veggie dishes. My advice: Share everything. Highlights: broccoli salad and Habanero fried chicken. And the pork buns are a must to start. Note to the chef: Bring back the stir-fried rice cakes.
I booked my brunch reservation with trepidation - the reviews really seemed all over the place. I finally decided that my need for matcha pancakes outweighed potentially eating firey hot (or tasteless bland, depending on the review) fried chicken in a subterranean bunker. We started with the pork buns, which were good, and then shared the aforementioned matcha pancakes and chicken and waffles. Two large matcha pancakes came and they were good - but the accompanying lavender syrup really stole the show. The chicken and waffles were fine; I'm sensitive to spice and found the chicken to be hotter than I usually like and my partner said that the heat snuck up on him (as other reviewers have mentioned). Overall, it was a nice brunch - not GREAT, but solidly good. Give the matcha pancakes a try if you go!
I had waited a long time to go to ma peche, and it didn't disappoint. David Chang's food is some of the most complicated and wonderful I have ever had. We got the steak tataki, which had a perfect texture and different flavor combinations with every bite. We also got the amazing broccoli salad, an asian riff on potato salad using miso, and the habanero fried chicken, which was spicy and wonderful. We topped it off with some cereal milk soft serve from Milk Bar upstairs, which is one of my favorites. I cant wait to go back and try everything else on the menu.
I was skeptical at first when I saw their limited menu. However, the chicken and waffles was delicious! I love that their Mimosa is made of real orange juice with pulp and not the kind from the box. You can't go wrong with the food and the presentation here.The ambiance was so-so, not much design but the room was airy, bright and good for conversation.
