Exquisite on every level.. Super relaxed unpretentious atmosphere.. Every dish perfectly executed, service impeccable.. I'm not a crazy adventurous eater but this place opened my mind to food, really blown away.

...will be hard for anything to match it. Really special food; the chefs are killing it in the kitchen. Service was top (putting our recent meal at Degustation's servers to shame). Seating could be more comfortable. Only complaint was the music. It's a short review, because I'm plugging away in my iPhone right after dinner. It was my best meal... More

This is by far the best restaurant I've eaten in and I've had a few experiences at some top Japanese restaurants. The food was mind boggling in terms of the intricate flavours and the amount of variety. All the courses were well thought out and truly delicious! The intimate setting watching what the chefs do is unforgettable and we will... More

We visited Momofuku Ko for my 30th birthday and it certainly lived up to the occasion and to its excellent reputation. Getting a reservation was easier than I imagined. Just a case of setting up an account in advance and then making sure you're logged on and ready when the places for the day you want are released. One thing... More

Amazing food, fantastic service and atmosphere (love the indie / Rock music playing) and we got to meet David Chang! Highlights were the mackerel sabazushi, bronzino and uni. One of the best meals of my life.

We went for lunch, which we had heard was even more spectacular here than the dinner. Everything was mind blowing! Loved this place, and would really like to return here some day.

My husband and I ate here for Christmas Eve dinner. The experience is amazing! 16 small courses and each one very different and flavorful. The entire process takes 3+ hours. One thing I will say--it is very fish heavy. While I enjoy all types of seafood...I think my husband would have preferred some additional beef courses. I would also definitely... More

Great food experience. The service is outstanding, full of flavours and textures. We ate for almost 3 hours. And they also have a passionate sommelier who helped to pair wines with our foof experience. One of the best places in NY. Worth to pay a visit.

Seventeen courses of culinary artistry were prepared before us for entertainment and pleasure. The new decor is splendid and the staff is friendly and professional. The entire evening was perfect. Definitely a place for those who love great good and experiencing new dished.
