8 Pcs Sushi, Tuna Roll
Shrimp & Chicken
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 :(
Not up to par during our meal - from start to finish UNDERWHELMED
Great food Great service
I always have a wonderful time at MOMOYA. The food and the service can’t be beat.
The chirashi is beyond gross. Avoid the toro sushi.
Love the food. Shrimp a bit too spicy but everything is fresh and good!
Unfortunately the outdoor seating at Momoya is not very pleasant – on the sidewalk. Only a few tables, which I never seem to be able to get, are in the tent.
But I love the sushi at Momoya —it and the appetizers are consistently good
Momoya was reasonably good with fresh fish, but muddled flavors and extra loud atmosphere made for a less than perfect evening.
Menu was limited. I had a green salad, dressing tasted a little bitter. Portion was large. I also had a ‘Boston” roll.. Very Dry, it needed some kind of dipping sauce and almost half of each piece was some kind of leafy green. I had not been to Momoya in a while and decided to go there for a business meeting because my associate wanted to eat Japanese food and I thought the atmosphere was nicer than some of the other restaurants. While the atmosphere was slightly nicer my overall experience was disappointing.
Delicious, fresh Japanese food.
Attentive wait staff.
This is our grandson’s favorite restaurant : we just celebrated his birthday at Momoya and had a great time.
Momoya never disappoints! The sushi is a cut above other sushi restaurants and the presentation is wonderful. Even the edamame is outstanding - and the homemade shumai is a MUST! The restaurant was very busy the other night and the staff went above and beyond to ensure the service was timely, efficient and also very friendly! We love Momoya and can’t wait to go back.
Very fresh fish and large portions, never thought I would say that of a Japanese restaurant. Good value for the food and quality.
MOMOYA is one of my favorite places on the UWS. Great service and great food. I really enjoyed the shrimp tempura appetizer which was crunchy and delicious and their sushi was as yummy as always.
Asking for proof of vaccine
Consistently one of the best sushi restaurants on the Upper West Side. Have never tried any of the cooked items except for the spicy fried shrimp appetizer which is delicious.
Very good place, we sat outside and their outdoor setting is very nice. Excellent sushi at extremely reasonable prices (especially for UWS)
I love dining at MOMOYA for the wonderful food and excellent service! They always make me feel right at home.
We had the sushi entree and the fish melted in my mouth. Service was excellent and someone was always around to clear empty dishes and glasses. Excellent meal!
Usually very good - however service really bad this particular evening. Too bad
The sashimi is outstanding!! Our waiter didn’t get the fish right but otherwise awesome. Certainly didn’t ruin the evening. Definitely going back!
kudos to the manager and our waitress for handling a very difficult situation--breakdown of the new computerized devices for orders
so incredible. food and service amazing
Nice spot with excellent service.
Menu has some unique items.
Crispy rice is outstanding.
The food was delicious and came quickly. While we got our seats outside as per our request/reservation, we were seated very close to the table next to us and I had to work to move the table and chairs, as the staff looked on. Further, we were asked to vacate our table the moment the check came to accommodate other diners. I’m under the impression that we were supposed to have the table for 1.5 hours and we were barely there for an hour, so that left a bitter taste for the restaurant.
We had the $70.00 sushi tasting menu. Instead of a twelve sushi assortment they gave us 2 sushi assortments of 6 each. The sushis included tuna, shrimp, salmon, fatty tuna, yellowtail - they were OK but not glistening. It came with a black cod roll which was some rather mediocre black cod dumped on slices of a cucumber roll. We had asked to sit outside, but they took us into an unpleasantly noisy dining room.
I have been going to Momoya for years and it has been a life saver for me during the pandemic. Thanks to the staff who had worked double shifts in a time where nearly everything else was closed. Their kindness and hard work has not gone unnoticed especially on a time when most had left NYC or isolated in their homes. Thanks for always being open even in winter before outdoor dining allowed heaters. I will always appreciate having a place to go.
Excellent and innovative sushi! We will definitely be back.
Seated very close to the table next to us, which included two loud and rude men demeaning women. The food took an hour and a half to arrive and was not the same level of quality as previously experienced at Momoya.
Very friendly service! Great quality food!
LOVED it. So so great. It was super hot at our outdoor seating, but we had a fan going which was nice.
First date. Very busy night and tables are very close. Love the food but would have like a bit more separation from other tables. Overall highly recommend this place.
Everything was amazing. There has never been a time that I was dissatisfied with Momoya
Things were hectic due to rain so we had to wait 15mins extra even though we had a reservation, but that was understandable. We were seated at a very small table despite being a party of 4 because they were apparently overwhelmed by the rain. That was irritating only because I could see on the host’s computer system that they were seating walk-ins. So why weren’t they prioritizing their reservations? Anyway, service for the rest of the meal was fine, not great because we couldn’t see or get the attention of our server for a good chunk of time between receiving our food and the check. I had wanted another drink but never got a chance to ask for one. Food was delicious! So good that despite a weird beginning and semi OK service I’d definitely go back. Try the popcorn chicken and rainbow roll! Chocolate cake was fantastic too!
Initially, we had great service. But as soon as our food came out, we had to ask for a server to come over and get more drinks. All four of us would have had another drink had one been offered. But instead we asked for the check after sitting with empty glasses for 20 minutes. Adding to our frustration, we were then asked to vacate our table as they had another reservation coming in after us.
Food was delicious. No wait with a reservation. Nice ambiance. Service was a bit spotty by the end but it was somewhat late in the evening. We sat outside and there were a few rats running underneath our feet, probably caused by a nearby restaurant going through demoltion / closing. It wasn't Momoya's fault at all and it's what you get for summer in NYC but not a great experience when paying for premium sushi. I will come back soon but maybe not worth the premium prices. I do love the fish quality tho!
Wonderful service and great food and varied menu.
Good dining but hostess gave us a hard time about asking to change our reservation from outside to inside. They did accommodate us which I appreciated, but got a lot of unnecessary attitude and negativity from the hostess over it.
The food was fabulous and the staff warm, welcoming, accomodating and knowledgeable.
I love MOMOYA and enjoy their marvelous food and service every week!
Good sushi always!
