Food and service was really good as always !
It was my first time there & it definitely won’t be my last!! Everything was spot on, from the quick seating to the impeccable service and lastly the food and drinks was to die for!!!
Well laid out restaurant with quality décor. Food was above reproach as was the service. Truly a neighborhood gem.
From service to the food was not good! If you're starving I wouldn't go there.
The food was very good, as always. And they upgraded their appearance; in addition to the recent renovations, they now use tablecloths.
It was OK. The restaurant is beautiful and the staff was helpful. The problem is that the sushi is not good enough for their prices. The sushi was on par with most of the 1/2 sushi restaurants and not one of the top sushi restaurants on the island.
The food is great. They serve very fresh seafood. Kudos to the sushi chef. The staff was very friendly. As a matter of fact my server Andy was A1 with a touch of class. I appreciate and will remember whom to request the next go round. We arrived a little early from our scheduled Valentine's Day reservation, we were promptly seated. The place hadn't yet filled up so there was plenty of options as far as seating. We were given a table in the front of the restaurant. At the suggestion of my wife, I asked the hostess if it were possible to take a booth. We were denied. Politely but nonetheless. Not even 3 minutes later another couple whom had just arrived and we're seated at a table asked to be seated in a booth. They were given the courtesy without hesitation. I would say that would be my only complaint. To anyone reading this review don't make my last statement dissuade you from enjoying this establishment. It's great. However know this. Anytime you ask a restaurant to accommodate a simple request, remember that they are not required to say yes. But if it is important them to benefit and collect some of your time and energy, i.e. money. Any reasonable request should be given with praise and humility.
Greeted well at the door, food fresh, delicious, appealing presentation.
Looked for a last minute dinner the morning of new years eve and MoCA had room for us. Did not know what to expect and turned out to be one of our best dinners. Ever! The menu is interesting and varied. Presentation was creative. Service was pleasant and helpful. Food was outstanding!! Everything was fresh, seasoned perfectly and a sensory experience. We will be back. Often.
Great panasian spot. Good drinks, great rolls and duck. lots of great small plates /appetizers and in the best Spot for restaurants in Forest Hills.
Been here many times, highly recommended.
Very friendly and accommodating staff. Highly recommend (and the drinks are great!).
Moca is a beautiful restaurant with wonderful food. I have not had anything that I haven't enjoyed and everyone I've taken here loves it.
The only negative is the noise level but I go early so I don't have to deal with that
Given there aren't many good Asian restaurants in the area. Moca is good, now if you compared it to of the good Asian places in Manhattan it would be just ok/good. Their food is consistent, the ambiance is nice. My dish there is the Pan Seared Tuna
Greeting from hostess was not good. Mentioned that reservation was made through open table and was greeted with cold silence as if she was annoyed. Other than that meal was great service was attentive. Atmosphere is great...the wife and I frequent the establishment.
SLIGHTLY OFF THE BEATEN TRACK, THIS RESTAURANT IS WORTH THE TRIP. PRICED WELL AND SUPERBLY PREPARED, SUSHI,SASHIMI AND THE BENTO BOX WE ATE WERE A FOODIE DELIGHT.
MoCa Asian Bistro was a surprisingly good experience for me and my family. The staff is friendly and professional; the menu is fresh and interesting. I found the sashimi to be fresh and beautifully presented. The sake list is extensive and the drink menu is fun. We had a lovely mothers' day brunch.
We were loudest ones there that's why noise level was moderate but no one complained. There was another large party next to us.
Expensive considering the quality of food. I ordered an entree and the shrimp was not fully cooked . I returned it to be cooked fully.
The manager was told but he did nothing to compensate except say he was sorry.
Love coming here for great Asian food ! The spicy avocado tuna salad is the best !
This was a new find based on some reviews from opentable and other locations. As you walk in the place has a nice modern feel and booths are cozy. Service was very attentive and knowledgeable about the specials and how they were prepared.
The food was outstanding. We had the Kobe beef app along with a filet roll for dinner, both were superb. all of the fish rolls were fresh and beautifully presented.
We will be back
Everything about this restaurant is a 1000%. I will be back again and again.. Excellent place to dine and one that will leave you with only good memories of a wonderful experience.
I have dined at MoCa several times with groups and with a friend. Service is wonderful. Food is great. Drinks are generous. Ambiance is pleasant. I highly recommend dining at this restaurant.
First time to this MoCa location. I had made dinner reservations online, when we got to the restaurant they didn't have our reservation on file (no biggie) we were seated right away. The drinks were good and the food was exceptional. They gave two big pieces of salmon filet which was appreciated. I will be returning :)
They had my name at the door when we arrived. Perfect!y m bf and I had the sashimi chef special and it was totally worth it! The special rolls are typical buy still tasty. We had sake from a carafe and it came in an awesome bamboo holder. Definitely did not expect this in Hewlett!
I have been here a few times and it's always good !
A creative pan-asian neighborhood restaurant that meets our needs when we are not in the City
This was my second time visiting Moca. The first time was over the holidays. This time, I brought my Mom & Sis for Mother's Day. I enjoyed my meal and the ambiance on both visits. This time, the waiter was not that great but I believe it was a language barrier more than anything. As a result, it put a slight damper on things but I didn't let it ruin my lunch. I would visit Moca again.
the food is always delicious. the service is pleasant but very disorganzied. we've been there many times before and will go back again.
So many different choices from the asian culture. Different seafoods and sushi's, chances are you'll find something you absolutely love. I had the Chilean Char Grilled Sea Bass and it had such an outstanding texture and flavor.
Excellent food, service and surroundings. What else could you ask for?
Perfect fusion Asian cuisine.
My girlfriend and I decided to have dinner to celebrate her promotion. We chose to go to Moca, a local and always reliable restaurant. As usual, the service and food were outstanding. This restaurant is always a great choice for date night.
The service was so so. The fire alarm somehow got tripped and throughout 15 minutes, just a lot of strobe lights and a blasting alarm and they said it's no problem.
The service and food was not bad. Have had Chinese food at other restaurants which has been far better.
The sushi was very disappointing.
I enjoyed the Mango Jumbo Prawn dinner served in the mango shell.
We had reservations for two at 7:30 on a weeknight. We were seated at the bar for about 10 minutes before we were seated at our table. The waiter promptly took our drink order but it took nearly 15 minutes to actually be served our drinks. The food order followed the same pattern; prompt attention when
asking for our order but it took quite awhile between being served our appetizers and our entrees. The food was excellent, the presentation also excellent. The background music was a little loud and at times, droning. The decor is pleasant and modern; on par with similar restaurants in NYC. The prices were reasonabe considering the type of food and the menu offered a tremendous selection.
Really enjoyed the Mango Shrimp!
Tuna sandwich (special) sushi was diffeent and good. Had a few rolls that were not the same old same old - place was good and the fish fresh. Service was great - very nice waiter and always checked on me and kept my sodas full. Go - its good, if a little pricey.
I really love this restaurant!!!
