Sushi
MoCA, as diners may wonder, stands for Modern Culinary Arts, a blended name that reflects our concept of MoCA Asian Bistro; i.e., a dining facility that blends contemporary style, cozy atmosphere, fine services and authentic Asian foods. Located in Long Island’s Hewlett Shopping Center, MoCA shines like a 1000-watt bulb in a darkened room, eye-catching in the already bustling shopping center. MoCA’s unique and distinctive interior design combines the ambiance of Chinese, Japanese and Thai restaurants. The contemporary decor includes a sleek, studied space, accented in orange and blue, with a soundtrack suitable for a club. As diners enter the huge and heavy glass door, they arrive in the Waiting Area. Adjacent to the Waiting Area is the Modern Bar. Customers can choose from a large selection of top shelf wines and cocktails. While sitting at the bar, patrons are able to watch the big-screen television and/or the chefs as they cook in the glassed Open Kitchen.

    The server was pleasant and attentive. Half of the drink menu was unavailable as were a few desserts options. There were several ants on the table the menus were not clean. The food was overpriced. This use to be a great restaurant however it has really gone done hill. Doubt we will visit again.

    I took my friend here, the food was excellent. The steak was hot and tasted well. My Malaysian friend rice was great. As for the Sushi perfect. However, the Moca salad was not as fresh and crisply. The Virgin fruit drinks was delicious and hit the spot. Will go back for just the Sushi.

    Went to the Hewlett location. Not sure what all the rave reviews are about. We were greeted and brought to our table by a pleasant host and thats where the good vibes ended. Im sorry-you're in a shopping center charging $20 for a mixed drink? Not sure who our server was but we had two or three people come over to our table in a hurry within minutes of each other asking us for our order. It was our first time, I was busy chatting with my friend who I hadn’t seen in a while and trying to figure out the menu that, for the most part, had no descriptions. Having food allergies, this is pretty important to me and it was a weekday and not busy so not sure what the rush was. The food came within 3 minutes (definitely not carefully prepared by a sushi chef) and was good but nothing spectacular. One of the rolls was not what we ordered but when we tried to ask them to describe what was brought to us each one of the servers seemed to not understand us. Had to ask for water. Bill was $160 for 2 people. Will not be back.

    We like the food at Moca bistro. The fusion Asian menu is diverse and flavorful. The server's proficiency in English is basic. They give a sense of pressure to order and get impatient with every delay, question, or change. The atmosphere is mostly quiet. This location is EXPENSIVE. The cost to value is NOT there. This a small-town location with a big city price complex. This is the main reason we avoid going there often.

    Not all entrees came out at the same time. There was a rush to clear dishes while we were still eating. The price of cocktail drinks were very high. NYC doesn’t charge 19 dollars for a cocktail drink. Seemed like the tables were on top of each other. Not spaced out.

    Greeted at the door and seated right away not having to wait for all to show up. Server came right to table introducing herself and asking if anything was wanted. All food and beverages were brought out in a timely maner. Never felt rushed or that we had to leave. A very good experience, I will be coming back!

    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.

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.

    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

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
