Momoya is the perfect place for lunch with a group of coworkers. Sit at a table and choose from a menu with Kitchen Entrées like Teriyaki, Scottish Salmon or Grass-Fed Rib Eye. Noodle dishes are served with wasabi seaweed tempura and oshinko. If you come solo or with a partner, you can find a seat at the sushi bar. The extensive sushi menu features entrées such as the eight-piece sushi, tuna roll or the 15-piece sashimi. Momoya is family friendly and has seating adequate for children. Your choice of Miso soup or salad comes with lunch specials. Beverages include an international wine list as well as specialty cocktails like the Gin Ray or the Momo splash created with peach sake, rose champagne and orange juice.

If you are not able to dine-in or just prefer to dine at another location, Momoya offers both delivery and take-out options.

Just an average Japanese restaurant. Nothing that incredible but decent Japanese food.

You can always count on fresh, well-prepared sushi along with great grilled Japanese food from the kitchen no matter when you go or how many people are in your party. Momoya offers really imaginative special sushi rolls that are always delicious.

Very mediocre sushi. If you have to go here, just stick with the crispy rice tuna and the more Americanized rolls. Actual nigiri is bland and fish quality is very average.

Sushi combo was good but the Chirashi wasdisappointing.
Squid was to tough to eat and Tunas was in chunks with stingy sinew

Would have preferred a little more variety to the menu, though perhaps they are presently COVID limited? Service was on point, one of lobster roll left something to be desired, but everything else was delicious.

We are locals on the UWS and love Momoya. We always get the tuna tortilla it’s the best. Shumai are huge and so yummy. Toro scallion and Boston are our favorite rolls. And of course love the Crispy rice with spicy tuna. Lychee saketini is delish and so is the Momotini. We had so much fun celebrating Halloween there last night! Loved the staffs’ costumes.

Food is consistently very good. Inside decor is lovely and nice outdoor space. The only issue is that there is construction nearby creating a pretty big rat issue in the street where they have additional outdoor area. I have eaten there when rats are running under the tables and past shrieking customers-not a fun way to eat dinner. Seems like they could be doing something to deter this. Help always seems very stressed and overwork. But love the menu and quality of the food-so will keep going.

Momoya is under new ownership for two months or so, and I found a significant decline: in menu especially, but staffing and service as well. But the menu especially has been watered down: no Tricolor Salad, etc., etc., many favorite dishes no longer available. Also prices have gone up, especially liquor.

Everything was delicious, and the service was very good, except that a server brought someone else's appetizer to our table (though it was quickly removed). Only issue – quite loud, with little to absorb sound.

Extremely disappointed as we had wanted to try - came here with my young son who isn't eligible to get vaccine - had booked an outside table but after taking cab over and arriving on time they wouldn't seat us outside, saying it was too wet from recent rains even though there were others sitting outside. Really disappointing as I want to support local neighborhood spots but think they just wanted to go home for the night and really didn't care to deliver against reservation we had made :(
