Steakhouse
Mocha Red brings a Kosher Miami/Tulum Vibe to Union Square in New York! There has never been a Kosher steakhouse like Mocha Red, we will have the best of American/MediterrAsian fusion cuisine & an extensive selection of wine, spirits, beer & artisanal craft cocktails. Spectacular aesthetics include bespoke hand-crafted furniture & specially commissioned artwork in an atmosphere that feels like a tropical vacation in the heart of New York City. Think Wynwood, Miami meets Tulum! Mr. Exclusive, who designed many of the murals in Wynwood, has created original art for the walls at Mocha Red. At Mocha Red, you’ll have a multi-sensory dining experience, with a dash of theatre. Elements of your meal are prepared table-side on a Robato grill, to the rhythm of chill Tulum pulses and beats. We’ll be bringing in guest DJs to add a live performance vibe & encourage you to stay while Executive Chef David Kolotkin, formerly of Prime Grill in Manhattan, performs his creations in the kitchen.

    Very loud- like being at a club. Very slow service. They forgot a drink, a salad, and the dessert. Food was delicious, though. Won't go again. Too rowdy and noisy. We all had a headache after.

    We sat at the bar to eat and drink and our bartender, Caesar, was awesome! He was great at the actual bartending as well as conversation! The overall experience was great, but definitely on the expensive side.

    Such a fun time celebrating my daughters birthday. Drinks were yummy but a little uneven. Food was delivered timely and was tasty. Service was terrible…felt like they were extremely understaffed. Empty plates and glasses remained on the table for way too long. My husband had to ask 4 times for a particular drink. Overall was a great time, they just really need to tighten up the service for customers who may not be as understanding as we were.

    Mocha Red is definitely for a young crowd looking for a trendy experience. Depending on where you sit, the music can drown out conversation. The red lighting also makes it somewhat difficult to see your food and company. But overall, it is an energetic and happy atmosphere. The food was really tasty, but some quality issues such as grizzly meat do not reflect the premium pricing. Portion sizes are fair though. The cocktails are clever and fun!

    Kayla was very welcoming & helpful as soon as we arrived. My boyfriend & I love to take pics at restaurants we eat at. She made sure she suggested more artwork on lower level. It setup for fine dining as well if you just wanted to come for drinking at a bar. We was blown away by the ambiance & art work. Our sever was helpful & did well on suggesting the steaks on the menu. The food was definitely delicious but very small portioned food for the money in my opinion. I had the cloud 9 drink that was definitely delicious. I will definitely return when the weather warms up & to try other drinks.

    The chicken lollipops are really not good. They are very dry. The surprise steak special was delicious. However I would prefer you served a wine reduction sauce on the side as opposed to Bernasie sauce. Overall had a great time. Service was great.

    This place is a must visit!! We had an absolute blast:) We were a group of eight from the office celebrating New Years and we ordered a variety of different foods from the menu and everything was spot-on and delicious! From the Chilean Sea Bass to the Rib Eye to the incredible XIURITTA D”ESPANA (churros - for those that only speak English) for dessert. The in-house specialty mixology drinks are one of a kind - we kept on ordering more and more. The service is superb. Entire staff eager to please and available for service throughout the evening. Ambiance is delightful and energetic.

    We reserved excitedly, yet were sorely disappointed. The menu offerings are varied and interesting, and the food was prepared and presented well. However, the wait staff are simply "order takers" like in a burger joint, offering no real discussion about the menu or the type of flair you would expect at these price points. The drinks were very expensive for what they were and while sounding creative and interesting on the menu, were not executed particularly well (and seemed to be short on alcohol). We go to bars featuring talented mixologists where the drinks are cheaper and far better. Finally, the biggest issue was the noise. The DJ was so loud that, even though we sat by the window (street side), at the farthest point from the DJ, we had to practically scream to hear each other. It felt much more like a night club than a sophisticated restaurant (which is fine if that's what you want, but we wanted to be able to linger and talk, and I was frankly relieved once we left, and very unhappy about the price tag for such a short and unsatisfying experience). A big "don't do it" warning!

    Food quality excellent-way too loud -couldn’t hear the waiter or each at all. Service was very poor especially as there seemed to be plenty of staff—no training evident. 3 people served and 4th persons dinner forgotten, no follow up from waiter ever-even for dessert or coffee. Buser kept putting my knife back on the tablecloth-when meal was over!

    Three of us went to Mocha Red for lunch at 2:30 p.m., and had a great time. An excellent, inexpensive lunch is offered, with three courses and some choices among the main courses. Its lunch menu is posted online in its list of menus, and it is actually more extensive than what is posted. However, visitors should be aware that lunch is a special service and that they cannot choose offerings from the evening menu. We all enjoyed our three different lunches very much, and the service was terrific and friendly. I loved the chicken soup. One small criticism about the food: my delicious smoked turkey sandwich had a spicy mayonnaise on it, which surprised me. It didn't agree with me (I am elderly and do have some issues in that regard). Do people expect a turkey sandwich to be spicy nowadays? (This spicy mayonnaise was also applied without warning at another fancy kosher restaurant.) Anyway, we had fun and everything was really good.
