An exceptional dining experience. Got to try foods and wines that I'd never have had access to otherwise. The preparation and experience were elegant but didn't alienate me as the guest. A must-do for anyone that takes food seriously.

One of the best meals I’ve ever had. Granted I don’t eat like this often, but if I had the money I’d do it again. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity for me and I’d do it again, in an instant.

Amazing meal every time. Must do "wine" pairings, which includes other drinks besides wines. Sit at the counter. Cooking can be a spectator sport.

Overall a good experience with good food, excellent service and extensive wine list. The food was prepared with care and craftsmanship. Some great dishes, some good, and some just ok.

While the service was impeccable, the food (first 5 courses) were all overly salty - made it very hard to enjoy the meal.

Extremadamente caro!! Menú muy largo y lento con composiciones que a veces distorsionan una materia prima excelente.
Cobrar el menú a 255$ (bebidas a parte,) en unas sillas incomodisimas en la barra , durante más de 2 horas, para ver cocinar lo mismo una y otra vez a jóvenes que actúan cual robots nos pareció realmente un abuso, que no se justifica Br
El ambiente interior es oscuro y poco sugerente y el exterior habla por si solo. Nada recomendable!

Our experience at ko kitchen counter was simply amazing. Beautifully balanced delicate flavors for seafood dishes were a big highlight. Watching an open kitchen is always fun and the uncrowded quiet counter was great. A worthy splurge that we’ll do again.

This was our second time eating at Ko and it was just as amazing as the first. The staff is very friendly and always go above and beyond. The atmosphere is laid back and classy - yet unassuming and not pretentious. The food never fails to amaze us, and we always leave feeling well fed. Can't wait to go back next year!

I thoroughly enjoyed my meal at Ko sitting at the bar in this very unusual kitchen in which as well as seeing the kitchen you can see the meats you will be eating in preservation before they are served. The atmosphere was great, with interesting company and great conversation, and in the background great music. The meal itself was superb and the service excellent too. The meal started really well with tasty appetizers and just got better and better the pinnacle of the savory dishes being the smoked duck and the squash with black truffle. The deserts were excellent too and did not disappoint one bit, with the shaved foie gras with lychee, pine nuts and Riesling possibly eclipsing the also wonderful quince and amaze dishes. I would definitely recommend Momofuku Ko to anyone who appreciates excellent food!
