Momofuku Las Vegas Ratings and Reviews
Normally I don’t write reviews if my dining experience is fair. Tonight we arrived promptly at 5:30 for our reservation. After 5 - 10 minutes waiting outside the restaurant we were escorted to our table. We were promptly asked our water preference with the statement “Sorry if someone has already asked...” The first sign of a front of the house communication issue. Over the next 20 minutes we watched 4 tables be seated and waited on. Finally, a guy that we assume was the manager came over dropped the wine menu and told us our waiter would be over shortly. He asked if we had questions which we replied we didn’t. I suggested we order a drink, not knowing how long the waiter would be. After a few minutes, the manager came back and took our order. Food arrived promptly and tasted fantastic. However, we never received our drinks and waited 10 minutes after finishing our meal for anyone to ask if we were finished. No one asked during our meal how we were. Worst dining experience not only in Las Vegas, but ever. Sadly my guest and I felt like we had on invisible cloaks. Horrible to have such great food and an incompetent front of the house team effort.
We went to Momofuku LV for a date lunch and found it to be a very special experience. We enjoyed the duck breast ssam (one of the daily specials), pork ramen, shishito peppers, and a beet salad. It was a large amount of food for two people but we wanted to taste so many of the exciting flavors and ingredients offered at Momofuku! We were not disappointed. We even ended up ordering a slice of “birthday cake” off the dessert menu (provided by Milk Bar), despite being rather full from lunch! Waitstaff were very attentive and knowledgeable.
Really cannot say enough about the entire experience at Momofuku. We were familiar with the restaurant's name as we have ordered product from their Milkbar in New York City to be shipped as gifts to friends and clients around the country. (There is a Milkbar immediately outside the entrance to the restaurant in The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.)
First, we had the most amazing server named Max. His primary concern was to make us feel comfortable and happy. Really, it would have made no difference that the food we ordered was so delicious and perfectly prepared because Max just nailed the experience delivery to perfection. You will notice a photo below of their Pork Ramen. It is not on the menu, so you must ask for it. You MUST ask for it, as it was so special. Momofuku also has a superb selection of Japanese whiskeys at practically every price point. When Max learned of our ongoing obsession with Japanese whiskey, he went out of his way to educate us and help us to enjoy these drinks even more. When we return to Las Vegas, we will definitely return to Momofuku.
The food was a bit pricey considering everything was over salted. The chilled noodles were the best thing. We also got the pork ramen - too salty. The duck breast - way too salty. The kimchi that came with the duck breast must have had salt poured on it. The shrimp bun - nothing special. It was interesting to try, I would come back for the chilled noodles again, but everything else I was a bit disappointed with.
My fifth time Momofuku - never disappointed. Every time I splurge on the five-spice duck, whether I'm with a group of five or it's just myself-plus-one. Once, the executive chef stopped to talk more about the food and restaurant. I prefer the noodle bar seating to watch the kitchen team at work. They're always more than happy to talk about the food and even offer unsolicited samples of food and sauces. Without a doubt my favorite spot on the strip.
I've been to most of the Momofukus at least once, probably a dozen visits in all. This is hardly recognizable as being a David Chang restaurant. There was no fun, novelty, or unique POV, and the food was not prepared particularly well. Almost like I imagine a PF Chang's would be--generic riffs on "Asian" food.
Service was incredibly good.
Food was delicious but service wasn’t great. I went to the restroom and came back to 5 appetizers on the table (missing 1 of 2 buns ordered). Then we received noodles by itself. We waited to start on the noodles until the salmon entree came out 10 mins later.
Food was awesome. Had the duck and worth the $$$. A couple of the small plates were good - not great. Only complaint was they left empty/dirty plates and serving dishes on the table forever. The waiter and guy refilling water were by multiple times and left with no dirty dishes in their hands.
This was our second time at this location. We have eaten at its sister restaurants in NYC, and this remains our favorite. The Fried Chicken and caviar is a rich and flavor packed treat. The spicy cold noodles should not be missed. The shrimp bun was also delicious. To end with some amazing cookies and ice cream from the Milk Bar was a perfect finish. If you have not been here yet, what are you waiting for?
This is our second time to eat here and everything was excellent- from the delicious cocktails, to the very flavorful and complex delicious taste of food, to the sophisticated and hip ambiance, and lastly,
the warm, friendly and attentive service of the staff. This place has become one of our favorites and will definitely be back for more. Our friends were just as impressed as we are. Kudos to the crew for an outstanding job!
My husband had the salmon sandwich, which he very much enjoyed. I had the ginger scallion ramen and added pork belly for additional $5. Small piece of pork belly, but it melted in my mouth. So good! The noodles were good, nothing special, but I didn't know when I ordered it that it's a dry noodle. We ordered the milk cream soft serve ice cream for dessert. My hubby didn't like it. Said it tasted like soggy cereal in milk. It was a little salty, too. I thought the ice cream was ok. But probably wouldn't order it, again. Service was good; our server was friendly and attentive.
The food was really good, but the staff, I feel, is top notch. Knowledgeable, friendly, attentive: they made the diner much more special. Recommendations were spot on. The one thing I felt needs to change, and maybe it is more me, but the noise level from the music gave me a headache. Maybe this could be addressed by having an area where the volume was lower so old F*rts could enjoy the food, talk, or just let their mind wander.
Only positive I could say is that the service was pleasant. Found the food mediocre and overhyped. I could get better ramen at dedicated ramen places and the ginger noodles tasted similar to an appetizer I could get at an actual Asian restaurant for almost a third of the price. Completely underwhelmed.
This was my first time dining at Momofuku for dinner. I'd been there a couple of times before for lunch, and was excited to come for dinner as Momofuku has different menus for lunch and dinner. We came for a late dinner (around 10pm).
Service was exceptional. From hostess to the waitstaff, everyone was very friendly and helpful. The waiter who took our drink order suggested options to my friend, and the waitress who took our food order and took care of us the rest of the evening was very friendly and checked in on us often.
Food was delicious. The Pork Buns were amazing as always. Shishito Peppers were savory and satisfying. The Spicy Cucumbers were really refreshing. My favorite dish on the menu by far is probably the Steamed Whole Branzino—the brown butter sauce was rich and gave the dish an amazing flavor, it blew me away. Even though we were beyond full, we couldn't stop eating. Dinner ended with a little slice of heaven in the form of Crack Pie.
