Our group arrived close to 1pm and was seated right away (with a reservation). We shared the trout dip with trout roe. Delicious! I had the Momo Bap with pork. The portion was somewhat smaller than I expected, but it was very tasty. I love a lot of ice tea, so I wish it came in a regular glass and not in a tumbler. I would recommend to friends and plan to dine here again!

The last few times we have been a little disappointed. The brunch menu has never been large, but there are limited offerings, so I would recommend viewing the menu before going. For example, the largest section of the menu is sauces for the bread. The hummus was bland, the honey-chili butter was delicious. The service was OK, but seems to be becoming more formulaic than in the past ("walking through the menu, etc.). The chairs are uncomfortable because the backs curve around and limit elbow room. Great mimosas.

All the food we had was perfectly delicious. Lunch menu is a little limiting - wish there were more small plate options or salads. Very heavy food.

I was really looking forward to going to this restaurant, but in the end was disappointed with the choices on the menu and the fat on the pork was not rendered down enough and so too chewy and the meat was way to big/thick and hard to eat in the bibb lettuce taco. It was not Korean food. Way too expensive.

Would definitely return! The food was so unique and delicious-- who would have thought Asian-flavored beets were a thing but they were so tasty! The cocktails were equally out-of-this world! We had a great server who gave quality food recommendations and provided just the right amount of service. My husband and I spent 2 hours catching up with a friend visiting from out of town-- we never felt rushed! Good prices too! The three of us shared 3 small plates, 1 main dish, a dessert, and we each had two cocktails, all for a little over $100!

The menu isn't long, but everything we had was excellent. We loved the himachi. Well chosen wine list. Friendly and professional service. And for dessert, take the granita!

Had a great lunch with an old good friend of mine recently. The service was excellent! The food was good too although i found the temperature of the lamb i had with the korean dish a bit on the low side. Nice unusual dishes on the menu.

The pimento cheese spread appetizer was really good. Spicy chicken entree was really good to. Topped it off with ice cream with sprinkles from the Milk Bar. The service was spot on. I will return soon. Loved it.

Everything we had was delicious. Our waiter made great recommendations in terms of selection and how much to order. We were there on the early side (Sunday @5:30) because we were going to the Warner Theater afterwards so it was relatively quiet.

I mentioned it was my sisters birthday twice and they didn't offer to bring anything out or mentioned any options for dessert. I would have paid extra. Food was still great though.

With a new chef in the kitchen and a revamped menu, Momofuku DC is finally a restaurant that actually does food well. Chef Tae Strain has thrown out the old menu (good riddance) and has created a pretty appetizing one that has brought some respectability to the Momofuku name. Now if only the same thing could happen to Milk Bar...

My son ordered the $33 noodles and they were barely edible. Extremely salty (and we both like highly salted food) and no real flavor. My two small plates were tasty but the fact that he couldn’t even eat his entree made the evening a real bummer. I will not be back.

Definitely a place for people who like to try food and share food! The menu is smaller but not so small that you feel your meal is predetermined. Our server was attentive, cordial and knowledgeable. My only complaint is how close together the tables are. The noise level could be a tad overwhelming on weekends.

We went for the first time during DC Restaurant week. Very casual, fast service. For $35 you get 2 appetizers (instead of a dessert) and an entrée. The first appetizer was more of a pickle that came in a small dish. You could choose the cucumbers (a little bit spicy) or the beets. The beets looked like watermelon radishes. Then the second appetizer was a choice of two dips with what looked like naan bread or the chicaronnes which also came with a pimento dip. The other two dips which came with bread were like a hummus and the other was a boursin cheese. For entrees, the Amish chicken was good, and a large portion, served like a roulade cup up into several pieces served over a rice pilaf. The branzino was good and fileted nicely and came served on a bed of garbanzo beans and diced vegetables. The momobap (like bimbibap but with no meat) was good, but very spicy, with vegetables. The egg on top was almost raw. We ordered an interesting non-alcoholic drink, a black iced tea with pomegranate and lime. It had a floral taste to it, like lavender. They also serve Right Proper ale, made locally in DC. Drinks and dessert weren't included in the price. They had their own dessert menu, but you could also order desserts from Milk Bar next door. We ordered the milk bar pie (I think that's the new name - it used to be called crack pie because it was so addictively good). It was just as ooey and gooey as I remembered when I was in NYC. We shared it and it was perfect to share. We also ordered the milk bar soft ice cream with cereal milk. It tasted like the milk leftover in the bowl after you eat cereal and there were crispy cereal pieces on top. All in all, we enjoyed the food and ambience. The server was very fast, friendly, and good.

This is my now my favorite restaurant in DC hands down. The roast chicken was perfect and the pork belly was absolutely worth the price. Service was above and beyond and you could tell that the manager was genuinely interested in what everyone thought of the dishes that they were trying out. Don't skip this spot if you are in the city.

I’m not a food expert not do I have the most discerning palette so frequently when I have fine dining experiences, I think “that was good” but am not sure it was worth the money. Momofuku CCDC was definitely worth it. We came for restaurant week and each ordered completely different dishes so we could try as many things as possible. I was impressed by how complexly flavorful everything was—every dish had at least two, if not three different flavors going on.the highlight was probably the Branzino, was was so well made the fish cut like butter. Service was also outstanding despite the busy night. Our waiter was a great conversationalist but she also gave us a lot of space to converse between ourselves and enjoy the food.
The prices are a little much for me on a regular basis but I’ll definitely be coming back here on special occasions.

Momofoku offers unique meals and drinks. The momo punch for example- is a milk based soju cocktail that was delicious. Perfect date night place- we just happened to go there during restaurant week and it was a great experience
