Momofuku Má Pêche Ratings and Reviews

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.

We enjoyed a wonderful meal. I had asked for my meat medium and it came our very rare. They quickly took it back and was returned perfectly. It is pricey but for a special occasion worth it. Very congested in the area as it is near Trump tower.

The food was very good. We got a varied selection of dishes from small plates to entrees and shared them among 4 people. The steak dish with Brussels sprouts was very good. Very tender high quality cut of steak was juicy and flavorful. The fried cauliflower was a delicious and meaty tasting dish, I think it was sauced with a thin and light but flavorful Vietnamese condiment Nuoc Mám which has fish sauce as the base, and citrus juice and vinegar and sugar and a little bit of chili peppers for some heat.
Though the flavor was good, the habanero fried chicken was too salty. Another ok dish was the pickled muscles. It was an interesting way to prepare muscles but was mainly just a novelty to taste. It wasn't a star.
David Chang's take on food is delicious and a great meal.

What a wonderful meal! We chose MaPeche for a last minute family get together, grateful that they allow you to make large party reservations online. Our experience was great from start to finish. First of all, the menu is different but certainly has something for everyone. I was especially blow away by the little gem lettuce salad, and the oysters we had to start. The main course was a stunning short ribs and the rice cakes. The rice cakes were vegetarian and I could have eaten three orders by myself. So well-cooked with a slight exterior crunch and a creamy interior, glazed to perfection. I was beside myself. MaPeche also has a great selection of interesting, reasonably priced wines which we took advantage of. All told, it was a very lovely meal and I would go back again soon, and recommend you take your family too! Only downside: proximity to Trump Tower and the NYPD mess surrounding it. Kind of a bummer.

The waiter pressured me to order more. I was not that hungry that time, but still wanted to taste mapeche delicious dishes. After I didn't order a lot, I felt like waiters were trying to kick us out. It was very uncomfortable.
Food was amazingly good. This is something you cannot find other places.
Boring space. No decoration, no artistic feature, you are surrounded by ...just a concrete wall in the basement. So, this is not a place for a romantic date. Not romantic, not fancy, It's a tiny, boring space, BUT food is excellent.

I booked a table to celebrate with my friends my mum's birthday. When we arrived for a very early dinner the two hostesses refused to seat my mum and I even though there were only a few people in the dining area due to a policy, when I explained that my 72 yr old mum just wanted to be able to sit at the table and sip on water until my two friends arrived they just smiled disingenuously and told us they couldn't. I asked a few more times since our friends were stuck in traffic and they refused to budge. Once one of my friends arrived they finally seated us and there were only a few people in the restaurant. They definitely put us off ever wanting to come again especially since their job is customer service. I understand there are policies but this one seemed ludicrous. Once we were seated the wait staff were very friendly but the restaurant no longer serves dim sum and the menu was limited and the food not memorable. We used to love coming, but after our last visit have no desire to go again. I hope those who do go have a better time.

This used to be a great place but with the menu style change and service levels slipping I wouldn't recommend it anymore. This was the first time that I had been for lunch so perhaps there is a difference between the levels of service between then and dinner.

An excellent and reasonably priced restaurant in a delightful hotel perfectly located in midtown Manhattan. We definitely will dine here again. We have had breakfast here everyday, however at breakfast the service is a little slow. Service was very good at dinner.

I made a reservation on recommendation of a foodie friend in Boston, with the intention of having a dining experience. However, being a single diner with a reservation means I was seated at the bar. Bar seating can be ok if there is something to look at. At Ma Peche downstairs, the bar has a collection of interesting drawings by a local artist. The rest of the decor is a severe aesthetic. The walls were two stories high and covered in endless sweeps of white fabric. The pricing and ambience didn't inspire me to feast so I went with an entree only. I enjoyed the beautifully presented sable fish with shrimp, kohlrabi and curry. I don't claim to be a foodie but I am very picky about texture and temperature and it was perfection.

Okay- so my first time into Momofuku world and besides the rocking lime habanero chicken, it's not for me or my daughter. I think it's a taste thing as opposed to any short coming on their part. She and I are not a fan of fatty meats and the corned beef starter as well as the braised rib were super fatty cuts. Flavors were good and the space is cool. Our waiter got switched in the middle of meal and for a bit it felt as if we were in no man's land.
