Better than most museum restaurants

When I think of most museum restaurants, I usually think of pre-made hamburgers and stale sandwiches, but that wasn't the case at MoMA. The food was very good, though it is a little pricey and the portions (at least for the sampler) are small.

The popular habit of putting as many ingredients as possible into a single dish just doesn't appeal to me, so I had trouble deciding on any of the selections on the prix fixe menu. I started with something that included mussels and apples (wasn't any better than it sounded) and had a pork dish of which the main portion was... More

Great food - delicious and very well presented. The portions where enough - not huge but good and when the complimentary 'extra's' where included it was a good sized meal. The service was excellent - very friendly staff who where also knowledgeable about the menu and wine. Nice atmosphere and didn't feel hurried or hassled at all. Good for couples... More

Definitely a must try.. Highly recommend especially for intimate dinners. The service was absolutely faultless, and the food delicious.. The truffles at the end were an absolute to delight, I just couldn't stop eating them

This place is incredible. Totally happening bar within th Museum of Modern art. Food and drinks are brilliant and there is associated Michelin starred restaurant which is also brilliant and incredible value. This place is a must see if you are in New York

This really is a necessity if you are here to see a lot of art.A good respite from going from exhibit to exhibit. The museum's food is quite decent. Enjoy the whole thing. Jeremy T

The enormous room was bustling-- every table was full. the windows were open letting in the wonderful sunshine which made the white decor sparke. What I noticed most of the food was its smell. You could take in the freshness of the asparagus and the pea soup just by their fragrance. The only mediocre thing was the deserts (maybe my... More

Delicious dishes, with a glass of chardonnay in a comfortable setting topped off a day seeing an interesting exhibit at the MOMA. Don't miss it.

Went here with a bunch of friends and loved the place. The scene was pretty cool too. It is definitely a fun place to go to bc there is alot of people and its super busy. The food was good although I remember more of the ambiance than anything. Great place for drinks. Loved the place!

Conveniently located inside MOMA, it is a very busy place that offers a good, though adapted to American standards, experience of Italian food.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
