Momofuku Má Pêche Ratings and Reviews

Maybe I had high expectations or perhaps I had waited too long for my food trying to grab a cab on this cold, rainy New York night, but our experience here was just okay. We started with the half dozen oysters, which were great. For our meal, my husband had the duck and I had the pork chop. We had the cauliflower and sweet potatoes for sides. We are from Nashville, and we realized how blessed we are to have such good food at home. The cereal soft serve heading out of the restaurant was nice, though.

The brunch menu included far fewer options than the website indicated. The selection was odd. The breakfast sausage had a strange texture and an unpleasant taste. Intended to be shared, the servings were quite small -- not a great value for the high prices. We didn't over-order (in spite of the server's recommendation) because we got the feeling we weren't going to enjoy the food and we were right. It wasn't terrible, but I would not recommend it for brunch. I expected better.

Steamed buns over everything! We came here for our anniversary and did not leave disappointed, or hungry. Family style restaurant and ordering style. They suggest to get a couple plates to share off the whole menu. We got the beef cheek dumplings, corned beef steamed buns, habanero fried chicken, and steak with lemon confit. Everything was cooked perfectly and the service was on point. Not to mention the hand crafted cocktails and perfect ice cubes! David Chang has not disappointed us before and I don't forseen being let down in the future. BONUS: milk bar is right upstairs, so we left with a couple cookies and a piece of crack pie.

The restaurant took a reservation for 7.15 am
We showed up and they asked us to leave as he cool had not arrived yet
It would have been nice to have had a note from the restaurant telling us not to come at this time (so early on a Saturday) as they would not be ready for us
They had our reservation and did. It think of this
B sad as I love all the Momofuku establishments

Mediocre!!! This is my fourth/fifth time at Ma Peche and the space is seriously run down. The menu has thankfully gone back to a la carte gone are carts of food, a disaster. However since the previous menu transformation this wonderful restaurant has lost its way, that's my opinion. I loved loved loved its first incarnation ... one of my favorite meals was New Year's Eve a few years ago, true brilliance. The menu selections were just ok, and dessert was terrible. David Chang needs to take a new look at this restaurant and make it into a wonderful place to eat again.

Got a reservation with ease via Open Table. Placed an order for the half rack char Siu at the same time. Unfortunately request was not noted so was 'named to shame' by coworkers for not following thru. Apparently it's a big deal where you must pay in advance for it as they only make and serve at two sittings per day. I was not impressed as, hello it's only marinated roasted pork. You can get it daily in Ctown for close to nothing compared to their $195 price tag!
Otherwise the food was very tasty but small portions. For a party of seven, we ordered almost everything on the menu for family style eating.

The food was delicious—spicy but not overpowering, novel without being gimmicky—and the ambience was perfect. The music (contemporary, cool) was audible but didn't drown out conversation. The service was attentive, receptive to questions and overall very helpful. The $56 wine list is awesome.

The quality of the food was great, but overall the meal was a huge disappointment.
Although tasty, the dishes were extremely plain, and lacked any kind of creativity.
The portions were unexpectedly small - so much so, that two of our dishes came on the same plate. This would have been less detracting had our server at least warned us of the size so we could have ordered more up front.
The service was almost non existent, and neutral at best when they did come by our table. Our waitress didn't even seem to have an understanding of what they were serving.
It was overpriced, considering the portion size. If any one of those points - portion size, creativity, or service - was above average, I probably wouldn't have considered the price unfair. I don't mind paying more for higher quality. This wasn't.
Lastly, the decor & vibe was... drab, at best. I've been to the bar upstairs before, and I think that part is nicer. But the downstairs seating area was borderline depressing. Again this probably wouldn't have mattered as much if I was by myself, but I specifically brought some friends here to celebrate, and set expectations for a great experience.

Thoroughly enjoyed Ma Peche. My wife and I are big fans of David Chang's other restaurants, and his general approach to food, so we were very much looking forward to trying this spot.
We waited approximately 30 minutes past our reservation time for our table-I understand that in a restaurant that serves this kind of food, the dining experience can take longer. We were offered a seat at the bar or at a communal table, but we decided to wait for our private table, as we wanted a bit more intimate of an experience.
We shared a Bonji old fashioned cocktail to start, it was spectacular. We are both big whiskey fans, and this is one of the few riffs on this classic drink that elevates it to a new experience. A must try.
For the food, the corned beef buns were simply incredible. The beef was the most tender meat I have ever had, and the pickled cabbage, bao buns, and thousand island complimented the meat perfectly.
The smoked trout was also great, save for one piece of chicharron that still had a hard piece of fat on it (so hard it could break a tooth).
I had the dry aged duck, which was a great entree, if not a little unmemorable. The duck was beautifully presented and the flavor was great, but it just didn't stand out among the other dishes. My wife had the arctic char, which was very creatively presented with fried spaetzel, pickled and smoked cocktail onions, roe, and a light white sauce. What an amazing dish! Each component on its own was distinct, but the combination to together was out of this world. Highly recommended. This piece of fish was so large however that we couldn't possibly finish it.
We each had a glass of wine, I had the french Syrah, and my wife had a chardonnay. I like that there is an entire selection of bottled wine from unique and forward vintners offered at $56 a bottle.
All in all, we were out the door for just under $150, not including tip. Not chump change, but well worth it for such an excellent restaurant.

Although I specified at the moment of my reservation that it was my girlfriends birthday, no one at the restaurant even bother to congratulate her. No one offered to have a candle with dessert.
Our server was only concerned about the corporate table next to us, which was of course going to consume more than un. Her tip was as poor and as careless as her service. Every time we asked her something she seemed very annoyed by us.
My girlfriend who is also a Chef was looking forward to this dinner and it was very disappointing and we are never returning to this restaurant. Such an awful experience on her special day.

I was recommended this for breakfast: my findings are:
The receptionist staff were rude upon arrival.
The waitress took my order down wrong, then gave my poached eggs that were floating in water with bread that had failed to be toasted.
My partners breakfast was so salty, it was like drinking sea water & was hard so would suggest it was the leftovers from breakfast heated up.
Coffee was burnt & repulsive.
All this for $60!!!!!!!
Avoid. Avoid. Avoid.

I expected a lot more in the quality of the food since it was supposed to have the same type of hype as other momofuku restaurants. Unfortunately, it did not live up to my expectations. Some of the fusion of Asian and american influences just did not work in my opinion; however, good attempt. I would prefer to eat at his other momofuku restaurants. For the quality of the food, the price was just not commensurate.

Wasn't sure what to expect as we hadn't considered Momofuku restaurants for breakfast or brunch- were we ever pleasantly surprised. The food was fantastic and service was good but not stuffy. We will make a point of coming back to Ma Peche. Can't say the welcome from either the Milk Bar Staff or the Ma Peche hostess was the warmest. The entry is already understated, why add staff that makes it downright dreary? Milk Bar really bummed me out- everything is prepackaged and convenience store looking and the cashier was straight outta 7Eleven. Guess I'll have to continue cooking the book if I want that homemade, just baked feeling.

Amazing food combinations that worked super well together. The menu was interesting and we were excited to try our dishes!! The service was superb and our special occasion was recognised by the team, thank you again!!
We tried the habanero chicken which delivered on flavour and texture and the steak tartare with yuzu was sublime!!
The meal was a real highlight of our trip to NYC.

Was excited for a decent place to be open early enough for breakfast at 9:30am but the entire experience was very off. At first, it looked like it was not open and after 15 minutes of waiting around, we finally saw one person working. The iced coffee was diluted and the omelet tasted like something out of a mediocre diner. Had higher expectations for a Momofuku establishment. The dinner is great here but I would skip the breakfast.

The restaurant was really disappointing. I had eaten there a few years ago and it was better. Admittedly we arrived late so it was empty, no vibe, food (especially the dim sum) very average. The best thing was the brisket bao.

We were unfortunately very late to the restaurant as there was so much traffic getting into the city. We did call and they said they would accommodate us. When we arrived they said they would seat us, but the hostess told us we only had 1 hour to eat because they needed the table. We did understand due to the circumstances, but felt it was rude to give us this info. I would have rather they told us to take a voucher or something and come back another time.
It took almost 10 minutes before our drink order was taken. I explained to the waiter about what we were told, hoping he could move a little faster for us. Too stressful to eat in 1 hour.
I ordered the fried chicken which was so offensively salty that we couldn't eat it. My boyfriends steak was supposed to be medium rare, but was sinewy and chewy. A total disappointment. Then to top it off, we had a gift card which we were unable to use because of some problem with their computer. What if we did not have any other means of payment? They did deduct our desserts, but overall, a very poor experience. Now we are forced to go back to another Momofuku restaurant, and we are hoping we do not experience this in one of their other locations.

We looked forward to dining at one of Chef Chang's restaurants and feel we started with the wrong one. I appreciate overall simplicity and modern decor but the environment lacked warmth. The oysters @ $4 each were either stored improperly or were of poor quality. They were far from plump and inviting, more dehydrated. The food was good but I walked away without enlightenment. We had dinner at Noodle Bar some days later and loved it. Looking forward to Nishi tomorrow for the Impossible Burger.
