Great culinary experience! Interesting combinations, beautiful presentations and excellent service
Amazing food and service. Made us feel special on our anniversary
There were some service mix ups, and overall the experience didn't live up to the price tag. It's a shame as I've been to Ko many times, and in the early years the restaurant experience really blew me away. For a time, it was my favorite restaurant in the city. But the last couple of visits have left me disappointed. It's not that it's a bad meal, everything is fine, but not memorable and just not special enough to warrant a $700 price tag for 2 people.
We did the tasting menu paired with beverages. Everything from each bite of food and each sip of cocktail/wine/beer to the service to the interaction with the chefs was truly spectacular.
Absolute flames. Everything was on point, no negative things to say except that you do get really full, which is awesome. So much detail and care in preparation and presentation
The meal was amazing. Very memorable. The wine pairing option though was not very good value. The wines and sakes themselves were excellent. It was just extremely small portions. I'd estimate less than an ounce for most of them. At $195 each you would be better off ordering a really nice bottle of wine and some nice sake for the table.
It was an unforgetable experience with very kind stuff, a wonderful atmosphear and amazing tasty beautyful artpieces dishes.
Perfect in every way.
This is a fantastic tasting menu restaurant. Very creative medley of cuisines prepared expertly with a masterfully order of courses. I’d recommend this restaurant to anyone who appreciates fine dining in a casual atmosphere and is willing to pay for it. One of the best meals of my life!
If you love food in amazing ambience, you must experience Momofuku Ko
Great counter seating experience to observe the attention to detail that creates the perfect meal. The food was high quality and left you fulfilled.
The vibe and food here are among the best I’ve ever experienced. Truly a top 10 meal of a lifetime.
Our outstanding dinner began with celebratory bubbles and the kind and genuine greetings of the Ko staff. We were absolutely blown away by the exquisite service, delicious food, thoughtful wine pairings, and stunning ambiance. Even down to the music playlist, the evening was curated in such a fine manner that we had not a single complaint. Becky was fantastic. Loved the egg/caviar/radish dish, the skate with Emir's family curry recipe, and the perfectly executed duck course. Thank you so much!!!
Arguably the best meal I've had in 27 years of life. Well worth every penny, and it's an experience you'll never forget.
Was absolutely delicious. Great flavors, very innovative, and great service. As a tasting menu goes good value especially with service included in the price. Very casual environment with some of the best food we’ve had.
Proberbly Best restaurant experience in nyc.
Top professional staff, and world class food.
The food was way better than expected. Awesome dishes. I would love to go back soon.
Perfection from start to finish
Absolutely the best dining experience I have ever had. The food was world class, the service was flawless, and the music was a great mix of nyc hip hop classics and contemporary indie. Sure the price was very high, but my wife and I both left without any regrets and would do it all over again. If you consider yourself a “foodie” this is a must in nyc!
An amazing experience for all of the senses. Highly recommend.
Momofuku Ko is an exceptional dining experience. You are seated around an open kitchen, watching highly skilled chefs work like a jazz quartet to create outstanding tastings for a couple dozen lucky diners in a modern, contemporary environment with a soundtrack ranging from classic rock to rap standards. Service is impeccable. The food and drinks are expertly paired, creative and yet with recognizable ingredients and no culinary-science tricks. Your evening will be memorable, and pricey. This couple, including one non-drinker, paid nearly $800. And we'd (probably) do it again.
Great presentation of a wide variety of foods. Excellent atmosphere and experience overall
Food was absolutely phenomenal. Drink pairings were perfect as well. The atmosphere was exactly what we wanted; great music as well!
The staff were professional, courteous, and always making sure we were enjoying ourselves to the fullest. They don't take themselves so seriously where we get rigid or uncomfortable which we loved! Best dining experience we've ever had.
Too expensive for what it is...
I took my wife for her birthday for lunch. Everything was absolutely perfect.
Birthday celebration for my wife with just the family. Staff was excellent and food was great as always!
The food was one of a kind. Amazing!!
Legitimately one of the very best meals I’ve ever had. The staff was top notch! While I could rave about everything the duck breast really stood out as perfection on a plate. Tasting menu seemed endless, I unfortunately tapped out with three more courses left to go. Luckily my companion was able to come through and finish up everything I could not. An experience worth having.
perfect to me
Best meal of my life, hands down
Fantastic service, sat watching the kitchen prepare everything so meticulously. Attention to detail and friendliness of wveryone was impressive.
The service is always above expectations. The food is delicious. The wine pairing is also wonderful. You cannot go wrong here with anything.
Best Michelin Restaurant experience this year. As a side bonus, the Sunday music was perfect.
Great food got to try a lot of different stuff. Awesome service.
We enjoyed the counter experience and the laid-back ambiance! We definitely want to return again!!
Wow! The best food and service I've ever had in my life! The service could not be better, what an amazing team and a great overall experience.
Other than too loud music and a mixup with my bill, still an amazing dining experience
We couldn’t have asked for a better anniversary experience. The wine pairings were everything that my wife loved and the tastings were frisky inspiring. Some we may even try at home! The staff really went above and beyond.
Perfect experience. Loved the food. Worth the price. Go if you can.
