Momofuku Má Pêche Ratings and Reviews

I went there for a business breakfast. We were greeted well and seated. The service was good but then again the restaurant was not busy. They had a good variety on the menu. I chose the garden omelette with hash browns which looked and tasted like they could have come from McDonald's not worth the cost.
I've been to the restaurant before for dinner. The service and food was much better then.

The food is definitely over priced & the waiter didn't even know what was on the menu. Maybe he was a newbie but there wasnt anyone else helping him out. We had to wait a while to have another person tell us what was on the menu. The food was way below my expectations. Wouldnt go there again.

The food was amazing, so unique, unlike any other cuisine i've had before. The spices and combo were so unique and everything was delicious. i highly recommend it. Setting was kinda blah, felt like i was sitting in an underdone warehouse, but the food was so good, i didn't notice once i started eating.

Mick and staff were excellent, very attentive and prompt. We had Thanksgiving dinner with the prix fixe menu. All the items were extremely tasty and my family was very happy/satisfied with their meal! The drinks were also a very big hit - props to the bar tender! The Midtown Collins was amazing! Our food that included turducken, sweet potatoes, roasted brussal sprouts, baby bib salad, stuffing with a dessert of apple pie checked on the boxes for us.
We are glad we celebrated at Ma Peche. We live in Chicago and it was my first time at a David Chang restaurant. Hopefully we will be lucky to enjoy more of his food in the future - big big fans of his!

Went for Thanksgiving dinner with my mother. The waiters were really nice but the food was overpriced. The ambiance was good but the AC was way too cold for this time of the year. Overall good as a one-time experience, but I wouldn't go back.

Fascinating space and wonderful flavors - Asian fusion with American ingredients. The roasted brussel sprouts in fish sauce were among the finest vegetable side dishes we have ever eaten. Portions left us comfortably full with prices that reflected the special meal. Exceptional (though pricy) wine list. Friendly and attentive staff.

This was an incredibly disappointing experience from start to finish. The basement space is loud and uncomfortable. My partner and I were seated at one end of a long table that seats 8. It wasn't crowded when we were there and yet shortly after we were seated, the restaurant sat another couple right next to us while the rest of the table remained empty during our entire dinner. It happened that this couple was loud and rude (not the restaurant's fault). We ordered 2 small plates -- the root vegetables and the salt/pepper shrimp; 2 large plates -- scallops and rice cakes; and 1 side -- broccoli. The root vegetable dish was flat -- potatoes and turnip. The salt/pepper shrimp were overcooked. The scallops were cooked well, but the rest of the plate was a mess of sour carrots, radicchio and an orange paste. It looked and tasted horrible. The "rice cakes" were gummy, salty ear-plug shaped "gnocchi" with the most off-putting texture and taste. And the broccoli side was an overdressed cold, raw broccoli salad (there was no indication that this was cold on the menu). The bathroom was dirty, one of the toilets was disgusting and the soap dispenser was coming out of the wall. There was no cohesion to the food we ordered. It seemed like we were eating things from several different restaurants. Ma Peche needs a clearer identity and much better food.

Nothing stood out to me as uniquely worth coming here for. I much prefer Ssam Bar. We had the Habanero Fried Chicken, it was dry. The Salt & Pepper shrimp was OK, and only had 3 pieces. It was a bit too salty for my taste. The pork buns, while good, somehow doesn't meet Ssam Bar's standards. Don't think I'll come here again.

Menu had little to choose from unless you liked very spices dishes. The table set up and decor was like a school cafeteria. I ended up with an expensive hamburger that was average as burgers go. The wine list was sparse with unusual choices. Perhaps they matched the cuisine.
Service was friendly and attentive.

While not bad, I generally found the entire experience underwhelming. Definitely not worth of the "must-try" reputation that prompted my reservation. I personally could not find anything original on the menu, but instead, widely used trendy dishes.
Again, I would not say the food was bad--it was completely acceptable. I just think you may be better served rolling the dice and trying one of NYC's less publicized options.

I was excited to visit. It came highly recommended from a business client who had eaten there before. Well it is $$$ and while the service was spectacular the food was not. Sorry foodie brethren. I wouldn't eat there again. The pork belly sliders were the one saving grace. Otherwise the BBQ carrots were smothered in sauce. The fries were cold and over cooked. Salt and pepper shrimp was good but not enough to be considered revolutionary. I wish I could say I'd go again but at those prices- no way. Not even as a business expense.

We had an assortment of snacks, small plates and sides and it was perfect for the two of us: Snow Crab Claws, Fried Cauliflower, Niman Ranch Sirlon Tartare, Fried Oyster Buns, Beef Cheek Dumplings. Considered getting another dish but opted for take-out desserts from Milk Bar instead. Great cocktails. Fun atmosphere, dramatic room, but still all very civilized.

This is one of the casual restaurants that is casual in setting and focuses on the food. So the setting is rather basic with worn tables and Spartan floors and walls. This works when the food is exceptional but, I found the food rather ordinary. This may be a style difference though. The food was very good but the offerings are limited and the combinations did not flow together in my opinion. They also had too many foods using hot/spicy ingredients which is not a favorite for me.
It may be me as the place was packed and most seemed to be enjoying their meals. Maybe it is a generational thing for me though I tend to cover the entire spectrum of restaurants and enjoy them from In N Out burger to Daniel in NYC.

Brunch was incredibly good. The chicken and waffles (made with butter and sea salt) and the MP burger were fantastic. The staff was super attentive. The space itself is weird and uninviting though. In the basement of the Chambers Hotel it was odd. Food was great though.

I dined at Ma Peche for lunch once and had a good experience. This dinner was awful though. They were 30 minutes late for our reservation and the food took a very long time to come as well. Just not great service. We also found the food to be overly spicy and in some case very greasy. I'd have a hard time recommending Ma Peche.

Delicious! Every dish was sensational and the Bloody Mary was perfectly spicy. The service was good, but at the end we had to finally ask for the bill after waiting on it for a while. Not a big deal, but don't be in a rush. Overall a great brunch was had by all

Some interesting dishes and a feeling there is an attempt at the "non standard". But, most of the dishes are "over spiced" with rather dominant spices, taking away the subtlety of the different dishes, and rendering some "hard to stomach".
I am accustomed to spicy food and yet found some of the dishes (the spicy chicken, and the sweet potatoes to name two) very "aggressive".
Tone it down a bit please.

We went to Ma Peche to celebrate a work anniversary and had a fabulous time. Ordering plates and sharing was a great option for us and worked really well. The food was delicious and service great. And the ambience was fabulous. We had a great time.

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.

Just Close the Doors
We went on a Sunday for brunch with friends from San Francisco and had the worst meal/experience. It appeared that none of the servers wanted to be there and the kitchen was just going thru the motions.
Chicken & Waffles - dry chicken and limp soggy waffle
French Toast - thick greasy/soggy bread with "whipped cream" that looked like yogurt (my 4 year old wouldn't eat it it was so bad)
Rice bowl - 2 guest said it was ok, but the portion was small
2 options on the menu that had no gluten or garlic (salad or yogurt)
Asked for Tito's vodka as it's gluten free and server told me they don't carry it and "it isn't gluten free". It is made from corn & certified gluten free. BUT I guess she's an expert.
My friend ordered a vodka & oj and had to order an extra shot because she couldn't taste the vodka.
The room is a windowless cavern with long draped fabric - very depressing & not chic
I think David is just opening places to make money and not thinking of the diner.

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.
