Outstanding food. Loved the mix of small and large plates plus dips. The service was extraordinary. The staff was attentive but not intrusive.

My son ordered the $33 noodles and they were barely edible. Extremely salty (and we both like highly salted food) and no real flavor. My two small plates were tasty but the fact that he couldn’t even eat his entree made the evening a real bummer. I will not be back.

Definitely a place for people who like to try food and share food! The menu is smaller but not so small that you feel your meal is predetermined. Our server was attentive, cordial and knowledgeable. My only complaint is how close together the tables are. The noise level could be a tad overwhelming on weekends.

Miss the Ramen. Nothing particularly special about a 15 bibmbop bowl compared to other nearby places.

We went for the first time during DC Restaurant week. Very casual, fast service. For $35 you get 2 appetizers (instead of a dessert) and an entrée. The first appetizer was more of a pickle that came in a small dish. You could choose the cucumbers (a little bit spicy) or the beets. The beets looked like watermelon radishes. Then the second appetizer was a choice of two dips with what looked like naan bread or the chicaronnes which also came with a pimento dip. The other two dips which came with bread were like a hummus and the other was a boursin cheese. For entrees, the Amish chicken was good, and a large portion, served like a roulade cup up into several pieces served over a rice pilaf. The branzino was good and fileted nicely and came served on a bed of garbanzo beans and diced vegetables. The momobap (like bimbibap but with no meat) was good, but very spicy, with vegetables. The egg on top was almost raw. We ordered an interesting non-alcoholic drink, a black iced tea with pomegranate and lime. It had a floral taste to it, like lavender. They also serve Right Proper ale, made locally in DC. Drinks and dessert weren't included in the price. They had their own dessert menu, but you could also order desserts from Milk Bar next door. We ordered the milk bar pie (I think that's the new name - it used to be called crack pie because it was so addictively good). It was just as ooey and gooey as I remembered when I was in NYC. We shared it and it was perfect to share. We also ordered the milk bar soft ice cream with cereal milk. It tasted like the milk leftover in the bowl after you eat cereal and there were crispy cereal pieces on top. All in all, we enjoyed the food and ambience. The server was very fast, friendly, and good.

This is my now my favorite restaurant in DC hands down. The roast chicken was perfect and the pork belly was absolutely worth the price. Service was above and beyond and you could tell that the manager was genuinely interested in what everyone thought of the dishes that they were trying out. Don't skip this spot if you are in the city.

I’m not a food expert not do I have the most discerning palette so frequently when I have fine dining experiences, I think “that was good” but am not sure it was worth the money. Momofuku CCDC was definitely worth it. We came for restaurant week and each ordered completely different dishes so we could try as many things as possible. I was impressed by how complexly flavorful everything was—every dish had at least two, if not three different flavors going on.the highlight was probably the Branzino, was was so well made the fish cut like butter. Service was also outstanding despite the busy night. Our waiter was a great conversationalist but she also gave us a lot of space to converse between ourselves and enjoy the food.
The prices are a little much for me on a regular basis but I’ll definitely be coming back here on special occasions.

Momofoku offers unique meals and drinks. The momo punch for example- is a milk based soju cocktail that was delicious. Perfect date night place- we just happened to go there during restaurant week and it was a great experience

I was really excited to come here because I had heard the food and drinks were amazing.

I came during restaurant week and got a few of their classic drinks and dishes. Did not think it was anything special or worth the price tag.

Maybe some dishes are better than the ones I had, but there was nothing about it which stood out to me.

Amazing food with lots of vegetarian options or dishes that were denoted as vegetarian option available. The food was delicious and the food came out fast. Service was impeccable from the moment we walked in to the moment we left. Great spot!

It was good to try it out but I certainly think Momofuku is overrated. The branzino which was delicious and the happy hour citrus slushie drink was one of the best drinks I've had in a while! HOWEVER, everything else was mediocre. Nothing else wowed me but I am glad to have checked this off on my to-go restaurant list. I suppose the NYC one is better!

It was Ok, I went during the restaurant week in DC, but the food wasn't good, I thought that the idea is to taste what those restaurants offer within an affordable price but the food was nothing like the menu, it felt that I was eating in a cheap please, they serve you like you were in a fast food place.

We were seated promptly.The one serving the food needs to loosen a bit and need to smile.Our server was so nice and she had a great deal of knowledge about everything in the menu and even ask her to choose for some foods that we are not familiar and it was fantastic.
The cocktail drinks was awesome but had only one choice left since the other one was no longer available.And also I wish everything that I saw on some of the reviews for your food was available to order anytime like the buns,the ramen.

Overall this didn’t stop us from enjoying that night we had a BLAST and was very happy that we made momofuku as the venue for the gathering.

The food was fine but not outstanding - my hot food was only warm and I expected it to be hot. My husband's chicken was hot but the curry rice was only room temperature.

The service was very good - our server was very attentive and able to answer questions about the menu and make suggestions when asked.

Really enjoyed our restaurant week lunch. The server was very attentive and brought me a special menu for my food allergy. The food was amazing, especially the dry-spiced chicken! And of course we had Milk Bar soft serve for dessert. Can't wait to go back.

We had a wonderful dinner celebrating our anniversary! The flavor in every plate was superb. The curried lamb and broccoli were particularly delicious. Although the beets and bronzino were also excellent. Interestingly, the dishes we chose were more central Asian than South Asian, but that did not diminish the execution of the dishes. The restaurant was nice enough to provide us a complementary oatmeal bread pudding with a scoop of ice cream and amazing blueberries. The staff was attentive and friendly. Amazing experience!

We went for our anniversary for brunch. We didn’t actually know it was the brunch menu, but it was outstanding. The momo bap was so good that it may have ruined me for Korean food anywhere else. The service was attentive and they even brought us out free glasses of wine for our anniversary.

For the price, it’s actually great value in terms of both quality and quantity.

I loved almost everything about this visit. The only complaint I had was that the spicy noodles were far too spicy for my partner and me, which made it difficult to eat. The falafel was creative and delicious. We enjoyed our black bean noodles as well. The meal was quite pricey therefore it’s not an everyday restaurant meal but it did reflect a lot of creativity with great ingredients, worthy of a special occasion.
