    The food lacked any finesse. Thick slaps of fish crudely arranged. The anthesis of a Japanese meal.

    I come here often and I usually love it. This time it wasn’t my favorite experience. The back room where we were seated was a bit chaotic and felt uncomfortable. The back room does not have a great atmosphere. Something was definitely off. That said, the food was pretty good.

    The lunch bento box special was delicious. I had fresh salmon with fresh vegetables , shrimp and vegetable tempura, seafood dumplings, fresh salad and miso soup all for $24. A really good deal for fresh and a large portion of food pleasingly presented. They were very helpful to my daughter who is vegan in telling her about the various options, and she was pleased. with her food. Excellent service.

    Excellent sushi, although the choice of fishes were limited, like so many other sushi places post-pandemic. But excellent quality and the chirashi bowl is available in both white and brown rice. Skip the overly salty miso soup and take the salad. Nice sake choices, delish

    I wasn’t too happy with the hostess wanting to sit us side by side at a bar when I had a reservation. When I questioned her she said “well you didn’t specify you wanted a table”. By the way there was no where to do that. She was a bit inhospitable but I know it’s hard to get people to take those jobs these days. Other than that everything was fine as always the food does not disappoint. It was excellent as was the service.

    My wife and I came here for our anniversary and had a great time. Food was delicious, ambiance was nice, discovered a new favorite drink (the Jameson's with ginger beer). Will be returning. (Only caveat: I'm not sure, but I think we got a nice table because I made a reservation. So that's something to consider if you want a nice sit-down; but if I was walking by, and needed some sushi at the moment, I'd walk right in and sit anywhere.)

    Some of the food is excellent (brussels, mushroom salad) but the sushi rolls were disappointing. They were small and the special rolls were not special. Also, the price of the hot sake was very high. They charge more for a small than most restaurants charge for a large.

    Momoya never disappoints! Their lunch special is one of the best sushi deals in the city and it’s every day! Monday thru Sunday! Their signature rolls are also amazing, I loved their crispy rice! Quality of their fish is always phenomenal and the staff are constantly friendly and helpful! 10/10 would definitely recommend!

    The Long Island duck buns were yummy and the fish was fresh and delicious. After the appetizer, though, the server took away one of our small plates and left a dirty one behind, so we didn't have any clean small plates for the $70 sushi and sashimi entree, the size of which was hugely disappointing and not share-worthy. Of the 4 cocktails we tried, 3 sounded better than they tasted. The bill was close to $200 and we both left hungry. Plus they couldn't get the Open Table reward card I had to go through the system so they wound up charging me in full on my credit card. All in all, a disappointing dining experience. We won't be returning.

    We had an 8:45pm and were rushed out. They kept trying to take plates and even offered us a Togo box. We had no idea they closed at 9:30pm. They should not accept reservations for dinner when the diners would have less than an hour to eat. I’ve been here several times and this was by far the worst experience
