Really a lovely experience. Excellent service, really pleasant atmosphere (so much space at the bar). Fantastic wine service. Food really interesting, but not trying too hard. I look forward to returning (and trying Ko Bar).
Great variety of different tastes and original ideas in the tasting menu
Came here for my birthday and wanted to check out Ko’s experimental approach. Happy to say that Ko not only puts out fantastic food, but in some cases they have bold plating choices that show a sense of humor. Like the duck breast all by itself on a plate with no garnish - pretty ballsy to do that, but it was so perfectly prepared and delicious that I immediately envisioned a mic drop. And the Ko egg blew us away with its perfect balance of richness, saltiness, crunch and acid, even if the egg looked like it was spewing the caviar. We also did the beverage pairing, which I highly recommend as they added an extra dimension to the experience and the pours were the perfect amount. The service was on point, friendly and informative, but also unobtrusive. Ko is fine dining that’s a little cheeky, and I say “hell yes”!!
Special and amazing
A very fun afternoon experience. Would be amazing if we added wine!
Just amazing in every way!
Amazing experience. Atmosphere and food were outstanding. Will go back again in the future.
background music is too loud, The food is good but not impressive, we can always feel some taste stands out to much that influences the overall balance.
If you are a food adventurer and wants to deep into the most creative mixed and mind blowing tastes, I highly recommend to try Momofuku Ko. The price is just enough for the quality of food you get.
What a spectacular experience! Thank you so much to Simon, Heidi and Gabriella for making our dinner the best dining experience we’ve had in ages.
Very nice atmosphere
Seats at counter well spaced
Above expectations,more than worth the price
Perfect exp in Momofuku Ko! will definitely come back!
Not many words can describe our experience at Ko, everything was sublime; a true gastronomic experience. Only downside was the volume and type of music, I can understand the vibe trying to be projected but heavy metal at a loud pitch did not exactly set the mood. And I can't say it was exactly value for money as we paid quite a hefty amount.
Otherwise, the food itself was "out of this world". Congratulations!!
It is an spectacular experience!
I loved the diversity and novelty of the menu. I loved sitting at the counter and watching the chefs in action. A few items were not fantastic and for the price, I feel all of the items should have been fantastic. The duck was extremely difficult to chew and I left the full serving on my plate. I was surprised that the server didn't ask me if I was dissatisfied.
Every course was a sensory delight!
Excellent experience. Very innovative and good pairings. A few things were not my favorite, although the dinner was a great experience for our birthday celebration. Some dishes were unforgettable and worth the price of admission.
The space and service was excellent. The sommelier recommended an excellent sake. As for the food, a few years ago this would have felt exciting and innovative but many of the dishes haven't changed much and some of the pairings of flavor felt more arbitrary than inventive. At the end of the day, the taste of about 5 of 14 courses just wasn't that good. Maybe this is because it was lunch, but the lunch cost the same as the dinner so the quality should be as high. $550 for the quality of food we received was too much. If you are spending that, go to Per Se or Modern.
Our meal was amazing! The service was amazing! We sat at the counter because my husband likes to watch chefs prepare food. I usually don’t appreciate it as much as he does, but it was really fun this time because we interacted with the staff and they were all very nice and fun to talk to. Even though we were at the counter, the seats were separated enough to give each couple/group privacy and space.
Food—unique and fantastic! They mixed ingredients to create totally unexpected flavors. They brought out a couple dishes that I was reluctant to try but was glad I did.
Service—impeccable! They refilled drinks before I even thought about needing a refill and several times we didn’t even notice they had done it! I have a dairy intolerance which they accommodated.
Drinks—I’m not a beer drinker, but my husband ordered a cider drink which they make in house which was so good too!
I would highly recommend this restaurant.
A wonderful meal, superb execution of 12 courses highlighting the experience of Umami in each. Asian flourishes, remarkable attention to detail, highly creative. Try Rose Brut champagne through most of the menu, and a great glass of syrah or pinot w the meat courses. Uni with fermented chickpea and shaved frozen fois gras with lychee gelee, duck, wild rice ice cream w kombu crust, are some of the many highlights. Come hungry with an open mind, menu changes regularly.
Consistently good. Worth the money... just wish their pours were a little more generous. Great pairings that you barely get to enjoy
Incredible. Amazing. Best tasting menu to date. Highly recommended
Truly amazing from the first bite the very last. Each drink paired with the food only enhances the experience.
Simply amazing. A real culinary adventure. Sitting at the counter is such a treat as you watch the magic happens!
This was a fantastic meal. I went with a friend and we totally enjoyed each course. The chefs were gracious, our servers were efficient without making you feel hurried. David Chang has a winner here.
Very interesting and great experience. You are paying for the experience, the food is good
Amazing from start to finish. A real indulgence for a special occasion. Romantic, exciting, and the chefs and entire staff were lovely.
Truly a bucket list experience. Words cannot describe my experience. It was more like a religious event tasting food that good.
This was an impossible reservation to get when I used to live in NY. I happened upon an early one just this past weekend (several years later), and despite my concern that the restaurant may be now past its prime, this place does not disappoint. Inventive, innovative, and most importantly DELICIOUS food in a sexy and unpretentious place. I want to eat here over and over again. Service was perfect, attentive and friendly without being annoying. Cannot wait to come back.
Fantastic. One of the best dinning experiences.
Top dining experience. Sublime flavors and outstanding wine/spirit pairings.
This was knockout from start to finish. Non-pretentious service and one of the best meals we’ve ever had. Expensive, but think of it as dinner and a show, because you’ll be entertained. Amazing. Leave 2.5-3hrs to dine.
Incredible tasting menu, absolutely worth it. We had a wonderful time watching the food cooked in front of our eyes and each course was better than the last
Fantastic experience. Beautiful food and service, took care of us on our honeymoon.
Truly one of the greatest meals I have ever had. There were two dishes that are up there with the top 10 bites of food I have ever eaten. Wonderfully creative, excellent staff, exciting seating around the kitchen; could not have asked for more. Also great chats with chefs and wait staff about food, drinks and restaurants - you must go.
The server was extremely knowledgeable about all of the wines with the pairings. I wish I could remember her name but she had a compass tattoo on her arm. The food was outstanding. Definitely would recommend!
Amazing overall experience from start to finish. Service was personable and professional, the meal was delicious, unique, and innovative, beer selection was amazing, and the ambience was excellent. We enjoyed every moment and can’t wait to go back!
Amazing doesn’t even begin to describe it. Every course was flawlessly executed and tasted exquisite. So so worth the special occasion kind of treat. If you’re on the fence, stop it- just take the plunge and make the reservation (30 days in advance)
Perhaps out best dinner ever.......no menu......small plates, but perfectly spaced........
excellent service.......excellent food!
