The food and service was amazing. Totally worth it for a special occasion. Better than 11 Madison park and other similar spots IMHO.
Perfect and surprising
Kind and proffesional approa h
A special unique restaurant offering multiple courses of outstanding food and wonderful service. Interesting that there is nothing commercial about the outside or inside décor, lots of black with wood accents. Only very special wines and a huge selection priced accordingly. You will have a dining experience that you will remember for a long time and you'll pay for it. The counter seating was roomy and comfortable and a great view of the food preparation.
Loved it - as always 🤩
Consistently among the best in NY. The new layout is fantastic. Loved everything about our time there.
This is one of the best experience I've ever had at a restaurant. The counter seating is such an enjoyable experience, talking with the chefs, learning about the ingredients, and the staff (and chefs as well) as so nice and enjoyable.
The food is amazing as well. 3 hours of dishes after dish of palate pushing delights. You'll see innovative plays on things you've had in the past (puff pastries and filling meant to resemble your favorite childhood chips and their innovative play on chicken nuggets) and dishes and ingredients you likely never have tried.
This was an expensive meal for my date and I, but the experience is something I'll speak about for years to come.
Exceptional experience. One of the most memorable meals I've ever had! Service, food, and atmosphere was as close to perfection as possible!
Amazing! Best meal we have ever had.
Not worth the $250 per person price. The duck was terrible.
Everything was perfection. Mayumi’s service, the chefs’ knowledge and care, the alcohol and juice pairings and most of all the food itself. Worth every penny.
Everything and everyone were terrific.
my wife and i just finished watching ugly delicious, then we were planning a spring break to the city, decided to give this a whirl.
what a boss experience
from coat check to check out
service was unmatched
food was insane
and a take home treat as well
bar was spectacular and genevieve was a gem
thanks so much
Ko continues on its fabulous trajectory. Food is inventive, surprising, but not excessive. It’s always a special occasion to eat here. As an older guest, however, sitting next to the speakers for the music, was a bit of a trial for me conversationally.
Amazing experience to my boyfriend’s birthday. Did the wine pairing with the tasting menu and was fabulous!
Such a wonderful experience, the food was truly top notch. It's such a great experience at the counter where you can watch the chef's do their magic. The chef's actually present courses to you and explain the dishes, it's amazing! Every dish was wonderful, and we had an amazing non-alcoholic beverage pairing that was truly a delight. It was the best beverage pairing I've ever had the pleasure of partaking in (pregnant girl problems). We went to another Michelin star restaurant the same week and their non alcoholic beverage pairing was nothing in comparison. Unique, truly suited to the dish and each one was so different. I really can't say enough about this restaurant experience, I'll never forget it. I just wish it was in my state!
The portion of each dish is too big.
Great and personal experience. Checked up on frequently and attentive waitress provided everything I required. Thank you for the great experience.
extremely pricey but the most incredible meal I have ever had. everything was well presented and delicious. creative as well
One of the best meal's I've ever had, but also the most expensive. We did the full tasting menu, which is some 15 odd courses and left very satisfied and VERY full (don't have a big lunch before hand!)
Great hospitality. Incredible food. Fantastic wine list. Friendly chefs. Excellent service. Tremendous dining experience.
A definitely memorable experience. The eclectic menu is very creative and each plate is a joy to taste and look at. The beverage pairing also was well thought and went great with the food. A fantastic dinning experience . Our complements to the chefs and service staff. Great job
This was one of the best dining experiences I have ever had.
Exceptional meal...great service..only negative was an unapproachable wine list ..although the 75 dollar gammay we had was fantastic .
Fantastic it should be 3🌟 next yr
What a wonderful way to start my eating adventure in NYC. It was a welcomed home for a few hours out of the snow. Perfectly cooked duck, and lightly seared beef were highlights, but the dishes were thoughtful and delicious. My N/A pairing was refreshing and delicious.
It's a beautiful and experimental menu full of both bright and rich flavors! Highly recommend!
Wat voor ons een hoogtepunt moest worden was echt een teleurstelling. We kwamen binnen, konden geen aperitief drinken, ze zouden meteen aan de menu beginnen zei men. Geen enkele uitleg over wijnen, dat vonden wij voor deze zaak zeer ongepast , we hebben dan maar zelf iets gekozen zonder enige hulp, het menu waren 15 gangen die routineus en snel werden doorgegeven, bij het dessert brachten ze meteen de rekening en je jas zodat je snel kon vertrekken. En dat voor een sterrenzaak en 306 dollar per persoon . Echt jammer van ons geld. Het eten was dan nog es niet wauw ook!
Momofuku Ko was amazing as always. While it is very expensive, it’s worth treating yourself! I love not knowing what you’ll be getting and am never disappointed. You definitely have to be adventurous in trying different foods to eat here. Also great wine and cocktails too! I love watching all the chefs work together like a well oiled machine.
Un lugar cercano a la perfección, asumiendo que ésta es para Dios.
Everything exceeded our expectations, which were very high. We can't wait to go back!
I feel so disappointed. The decorations of dishes are extremely bad. The food tastes moderately. Dishes do not show any techni at all. The ingredients of dishes are also moderately. Won’t go back again. It does not at michelin two stars standard at all.
An amazing experience in every way. Everything about it was flawless, from the moment we stepped in the door until the moment we left. It goes without saying that the food was spectacular, but more than that, the service and ambience struck just the right note between formal and casual, the pacing of the meal never felt rushed or too slow, the portions were just right, and I really can't think of anything about the whole meal that I would change. Sitting at the counter and watching the chefs work their magic was an added bonus. It's a thoroughly modern interpretation of fine dining, and it all works beautifully. A meal at Ko is a splurge, but if you're celebrating a special occasion or just looking for an amazing and memorable dining experience, go for it--you won't regret it.
Great service and spectacular food. Always a pleasure to dine here.
Spectacular in every way. Truly one of the world’s best
Truly outstanding tasting menu. The dishes are so creative, inspired and innovative. Conventional dishes like a lobster roll, chicken oyster (essentially a chicken nugget), cabbage with duck, lobster bouillabaisse and esp the ko egg were completely reinvented. Other dishes just blew our minds with how creative they were , particularly the Wild rice ice cream. All of the desserts really were just beautifully crafted and balanced. The service is incredible, the staff friendly, so gracious and well informed and chefs were happy to explain a lot of the cooking processes (I’d highly recommend counter seating ). Overall a pricey but wonderful experience.
Mijn bezoek aan Ko was perfect, tot in de puntjes verzorgd.
Na een warme verwelkoming, werd ik begeleid naar mijn plaats. Onmiddellijk nadien, maar zonder zich op te dringen, stelde de sommelier me de vraag wat mijn drank voorkeur was om de maaltijd te begeleiden. Ik koos voor een minerale wijn in plaats van een cocktail. Doorheen de maaltijd werd ik begeleid om de wijn te vinden dat perfect paste bij de komende gerechten, gebaseerd op mijn persoonlijke smaak. Elke wijn dat voorgesteld werd was fantastisch.
Het eten is subliem. De gerechten hebben diepgang en complexiteit, gemaakt met respect voor het basis product. Elk gerecht wordt gepresenteerd door één van de chefs, wat bijdraagt tot de ervaring. Voor het einde van de maaltijd kreeg ik de keuze tussen een digestief, koffie of thee. Na het beeindigen van mijn eten, drank en wanneer ik meer dan voldaan was, heb ik de rekening gekregen. De rekening wordt vergezeld door een blondie, een gebakje gemaakt met Hozon, (een pasta van gefermenteerde granen en bonen, lijkt op miso pasta, maar geen soja bevat). Paste perfect bij mijn koffie de ochtend nadien.
Ko is restaurant waar je je als gast thuisvoelt. Waar je kan genieten en rustig blijven zitten als je dat wil en aangeeft. Het is elke cent waard en ik kan een bezoek aan dit restaurant warm aanbevelen aan iedereen die een passie voor eten heeft.
My girlfriend and I went for the Valentine's special menu and we weren't disappointed.
The ambiance of the place is beautiful, and watching all the chefs do their work in near silence is something to behold. The food is outstanding, unique, and perfect for a special occasion. The service is formal and professional but without being over the top, which is perfect for the style of restaurant that it is.
If I were to make one criticism, it would be around the wines. While they were matched perfectly to the meals (and I know the quality is much more important than quality) I didn't feel that we received the same value for money as we did for the food (as compared to similarly priced restaurants). I'm definitely not looking to get boozy at such a dinner, but it really felt that we would have been potentially happier with a really nice bottle instead of the range of matchings.
Overall though, I can highly recommend!
We went in blind and sort of missed the $195 set menu plus tax and plus service thing. It left a rather giant lump in the throat the days leading to the meal but it disappeared once we entered the door off Extra St (so extra). This place could have been the most pretentious place in Manhattan, however the staff feel relaxed, punky music plays as you sit down in the most comfortable seats known to the human behind. The chefs, all smiling before you are busy preparing you insane delights. Ko's site said 12-15 dishes, maybe we were just lucky but we got 19 dishes including a little secret something to take away. We were politely full by the end. Not too much, not too little. Go for the earliest slot possible else you might have your entire meal ruined by seeing other people's meals sitting across from you. It was expensive as hell, but you know what, every penny was worth it.
