Great food and pairing
Everything was perfect from start to finish. Loved the playlist 🎶
I had a great time with my girlfriend celebrating Valentine’s Day week.
Food was okay. Wine was great. Service was good. We went for the tasting menu and it went on for 3 hours through no fault of our own, and they asked to move us for the next people. That was absolutely wild to me. Not worth the $1,000 we paid.
Impeccable food and service! Well worth the splurge for a special occasion. We look forward to returning for our next anniversary, and will be visiting the bar in the meantime!
Loved it! All of the good things about a pretentious tasting menu (impeccable service, delicious food made with great ingredients) with none of the pretense. It was casual, fun, and laid-back but definitely still something special. Highly recommend!
They were trying to do sushi and wagyu yakiniku, but when it's so easy to find authentic Japanese restaurants in NYC with chefs from Japan with years of experience, I felt like their attempts were not quite successful. Given that the majority of their courses were very much focused around the Japanese cuisine, I would probably just go to a Japanese restaurant.
Great ambiance. Nice to sit at the counter and watch the meals' preparation. Very interesting creations/compositions, most of the 12 dishes are a success (sea urchin and chickpea puree, what?!) and only a couple of "disappointments" (seabass only "so so" / "whatever" ...). Enjoyed drinking sake too. No surprise with the bill with the unique menu (and service is included)
Semplicemente tutto TOP...Grazie ragazzi di tutto.
A wonderful experience - a combination of creativity, great service and a comfortable ambience.
such thoughtful and imaginative food in a welcoming ambiance. I go once a year, but was greeted as a regular, my champagne choice was remembered, had enjoyable, non fake chats with chefs and the manager. Such fun to watch the chefs and wait each surprise. Nearly always perfect balance of tastes and texture. Umami often, acid balance, little spikes of salt. My favorite NYC meal!
The 4 hour lunch was a fabulous gastronomic adventure - priced a bit higher than where I think it should be, but still quite an experience!
An exceptional dining experience. Got to try foods and wines that I'd never have had access to otherwise. The preparation and experience were elegant but didn't alienate me as the guest. A must-do for anyone that takes food seriously.
One of the best meals I’ve ever had. Granted I don’t eat like this often, but if I had the money I’d do it again. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity for me and I’d do it again, in an instant.
David Chang does not cook here. It’s the farm team - everyone is working hard and professionally - and seems about 23 years old.
Specified a pescatarian menu in response to management’s solicitation some days in advance. At the resto a chef asked “What do you think of duck?” I think duck is not a fish.
The place is maybe fine for tourists but not for NYC locals looking to be wowed. It delivers neither the wizardry of an Alinea nor the solid reliability of a Le Bernardin.
Amazing. If you’re thinking about going - don’t hesitate just do it
Very personable and knowledgeable staff! The tasting menu is an intricate blend of flavors, decadence, and most importantly texture. A must visit!
One of my best dining experiences! Thank You so much to the team at Momofuku KO for making me fool so at home and looked after me sooo well! I HIGHLY recommend a meal here!!!! The Rice Cream should be permanently on the menu... just saying!!!
This was one of the best meals I have ever eaten!
Unbelievable experience. Amazing food and attentive and warm service. The people there are the best!
Amazing meal every time. Must do "wine" pairings, which includes other drinks besides wines. Sit at the counter. Cooking can be a spectator sport.
Absolutely wonderful experience throughout.
Yule present to each other.
Overall a good experience with good food, excellent service and extensive wine list. The food was prepared with care and craftsmanship. Some great dishes, some good, and some just ok.
While the service was impeccable, the food (first 5 courses) were all overly salty - made it very hard to enjoy the meal.
Food was amazing! Highly recommend sitting at the counter for the fixed menu. Fascinating to watch the chefs work!
