Outstanding as always!
This place is still just amazing. I was worried when they moved to a larger space but it’s still awesome! Incredible food and lovely service. I love this place!
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.
Amazing experience from start to finish - I would recommend this restaurant for their amazing flavors, attention to detail and everything in between.
Thank you for this amazing tasting experience
Unbelievable!!!! My husband and I were blown away by every detail
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!
They entire team was no less then phenomenal. An exceptional dinning experience that will never be forgotten.
10/10 could not recommend highly enough.
Incredible food and even more impressive service. Highly recommend doing the wine/beverage pairing for an even more interactive experience. Expensive as expected, but worth it in my opinion.
Everything about this meal was spectacular!
Did was wonderful. Chef and staff were amazing. Sourdough was mind blowing. Would steal sourdough starter if I could.
Inventive & creative food, which was all enjoyable, but a little slow on keeping my wine glass full throughout meal.
The food was delicious until you realized there was a hair in your caviar dish and also a fly just landed on a bowl of rice they prepared in front of you.
Extraordinario!! Mejor que uno o dos restaurantes de tres estrellas que hemos visitado en la ciudad. El maridaje excelente!! No se lo pierdan.
We have been trying to get a reservation for Momofuko Ko for some time and I finally achieved to get one for our wedding anniversary. Expectations were very high... unfortunately they were not met. The menu sounds very interesting however after having had the pleasure to eat at several highly praised restaurants in NY but also around the world, we agreed that this is not at the same level. The service was very good, explaining every course in detail, ingredients very nice flavor but the "wow" effect was just missing... We think that the menu is definitely overpriced for what is being offered.
Spectacular place, great food perfect pairings...
Amazing food and wine pairings, you can never go wrong!
Most wonderful experience! One of our favorite places to come to and not just because of the food. The team is practically like family now and the food is always so amazing! We can’t wait to come back!
Gabrielle was our main server/host and she definitely heightened the experience. But overall I’ve had a few fine dining experiences and never imagined I’d have one like this. It was perfect. Absolutely perfect.
Coming from the UK I was perhaps expecting a more overtly Asian experience with David Chang’s pedigree but from the moment we were welcomed in from the torrential rain it was an outstanding experience. The staff were exemplary at all levels- professional but friendly and so helpful. The 13 course meal was beautifully paced, the dishes clearly explained with a multitude of tastes of Asian influences into a classic cuisine.
The seating on 3 sides of the kitchen was comfortable and felt like a large dinner party. I have to mention the best sea urchin dish, lobster paloise, the pork and the foie gras dessert which was heaven.
I will go back next time in NY.
EXCELLENT!! It was an experience like no other! The food was amazing and edgy and the drink pairings were the best I’ve ever had. The service was the best I’ve ever had and would definitely reccomend it to any foodie enthusiast.
Amazing like always
Not like any other Michelin 2 Star restaurant we have ever tried...fun, innovative, and very un-French! The food and service were definitely beyond excellent, though. The food just kept getting more unique as the evening progressed: everything was super-fresh, and the flavor combinations were just incredible. The space was intimate, but we never felt crowded. It was really unique to watch each dish being prepared. We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the experience.
We had had a terrible day thanks to flight delays, plane trouble, runway construction, and the mess that is LaGuardia. We left the airport right when our reservation should have been seating. Having called ahead and talk with the staff about what was going on and hoping they could hold our reservation, we made a mad dash for the restaurant. We walked in with suitcases, 45 mins after our scheduled time, and were treated like family. It was wonderful to taken care of so well, even when we had inconvenienced the staff. They turned a terrible day into a purely enjoyable evening. Thank you to the staff that made us feel at ease, gave us an enjoyable meal, and were nothing but professional hospitality masters.
Amazing. Cozy and fun
Third visit here and enjoyed every course on the menu. Saw some classics from prior visits, but also got quite a few new dishes that were absolutely wonderful. Dungeness crab doughnut and 30 day aged strip loin were delicious. Bravo!
One of the best culinary experiences I have ever had!
Magical, memorable dining experience. The staff are super friendly and really enhance the meal. The dining room is beautiful, unique and very comfortable; love being in the heart of the action at the counter and watching the chefs preparing your food. The food is extremely creative, top quality ingredients, interesting, perfectly executed and most of all delicious - from the opening bites through dessert. Fantastic wine program; tried some amazing wines with the pairing. Highly recommend Ko!
I would recommend Ko to super rich friends who like great music.
We went as a special birthday weekend of eating at David Chang’s restaurants and we thought Noodle Bar far superior in terms and flavor and value. The service at Ko was impeccable, almost spooky in its prescience and timing. The food was certainly beautiful and interesting but just not so delicious that the $510 price tag was worth it. Two of the 12-13 dishes were outstanding — the Danish yellowtail and the egg. The others were just a little too salty. The three courses with fried elements — the lobster roll, the chive potato pillow things, and the crab donut had good flavor but they were all cold. All of them. We saw the next diners’ donuts sitting for 12 minutes after leaving the fryer.
We love funky flavors, but every single course had something funky — too relentless, especially combined with the aggressive salt.
We wanted to be wowed, especially since my husband loves DC: listens to his podcast, reads about him, and follows him on social media.
We will be back to the Noodle Bar but we regret the splurge at Ko.
Eating here met every bit of hype that comes with it. The food was life-changingly good and the staff made you feel like family.
Fabulous food. Great service. I wouldn’t go with the wine pairing again, though. It was too much. Even though the pours are small, there are a LOT of them.
