Went for my father’s birthday and had an absolute blast! The food was wonderful and the staff pulled out all the stops to make sure we had an amazing meal. Thank you again!

Momofuku Ko is an incredible experience. It is exquisite, creative fine dining with the vast majority of the pretentiousness that comes from Michelin star tasting restaurants removed.

It's modern and "hip" but rooted in strong tradition. Every single staff member is not only excellent at what they do, but they genuinely care about your dining experience. We felt not only welcome, but that there was a level of mutual excitement and joy between diner and staff – they acknowledge that this is something we were looking forward to experiencing and they seemed to take pleasure in providing us with that.

Restaurants of this nature are often divisive. They're expensive at roughly 450 per person with beverage pairing. They can be overwhelming with ingredients and techniques that the average diner may not be very familiar with. They can be hyped in the media to the point where expectations on both side of the table cause pressure.

Those types of anxieties are largely alleviated by an attentive and warm staff, and elevated but approachable food at Ko. Having dined at some of the top restaurants in the world, I am confident in my opinion that Ko's food is at the highest echelon available today, but that it is elevated further by it's staff.

Visited with my son and his two friends. Service was excellent and wine list robust. I was a little concerned going into the evening that the menu might veer towards the precious but definitively not the case here. Everything was spot on, and only as complex as absolutely necessary. No wasted thoughts or trivia for the sake of trivia here. Nice location too, got to watch street kids in their Supreme gear go at it in the alley outside. Go, and order a nice Montrachet to start, you won't regret it.

It was very good, but it used to be absolutely fantastic - we just felt it had slipped ab it in both charm and creativity since it's halycon days in the original space.

Staff was charming and top notch. Still go, you'll have a very good meal and hopefully they'll be back to stunning again soon.

Tucked away and low profile so if you are new to Ko, leave some extra time to find it.
Ambience was relaxed and very conducive to great conversation.
Food was innovative and delicious.
Service was solicitous, gracious, and very welcoming.
Pricey, but would I spend the money for this meal again? Yes, in less than a heartbeat.

Outstanding food and service. Momofuku Ko has ruined my husband and I for life. We will book this restaurant on every trip to the city. The GM and beverage director were top notch and the tasting menu was incomparable. A must do in NYC.

We were a family of five, my wife and I having becom 70, and our grown up children, visiting NY from Sweden, wanting a special dinner. We got it!

The tasting menu including the wine package was marvelous, indeed! We got ten delicious servings plus appetizer, each with a taste matching wine. Nothing was traditional, but it was creative and ee loved it. Also the music had great variation and creativity. We got a nice round table, the restaurant is not crowded with tables, so all the good chance for conversation and joy.

Altogether the best resaturant experience we have had.

This was one of the most special, memorable dining experiences I have ever had. The food was delicious, with layers of flavor and combinations of ingredients were inspired; the service was friendly and perfect; the decor was industrial and chic. their attention to detail, especially if you had a food issue, which we did, was spot on. Loved the flight with the meal; it just added an additional layer to the meal.

Honest and true flavors, mixed delicately but substantially to give a euphoric experience in one or two bites. The meal was extremely filling, almost too much to handle. But the menu was pleasantly surprising and reintroduced us to familiar flavors in a unique and thoughtful manner. The servers were patient and listened to our requests, the chefs were knowledgeable and charming. But overall this place is defined by the quality of the ingredients and the imaginative and creative way they are put together. Enjoy yourself at this, still fantastic, establishment.

I seriously missed the point of this restaurant. It's location is questionable, some strange people outside it, and inside it offers little style and class. Probably a better experience around the kitchen. The table dining is totally unsuitable for children, and the cost of the experience is quite frankly ridiculous. I can't complain about the service however, that was very good!

We made a reservation for the table seating because we couldn't get counter seating. Definitely ask if there are any cancellations because we got lucky and were able to sit at the counter, which is a much better experience. The tables are ok, but lack the immediacy of seeing the food being prepared just for you. I loved the presentations and all the chefs are personable and happy to talk with you about the food. The best we had were the duck, the ice cream, the uni, and the interesting presentations of the vegetables and sauces all along the way. Service was excellent and unobtrusive. I think the wine pairing prices are too high, but there are some very special wines and other alcohols served. Definitely interesting food options. Our dietary needs were catered to easily and without fuss. Hope to be able to return.
