8 Pcs Sushi, Tuna Roll
Nice spot with excellent service.
Menu has some unique items.
Crispy rice is outstanding.
The food was delicious and came quickly. While we got our seats outside as per our request/reservation, we were seated very close to the table next to us and I had to work to move the table and chairs, as the staff looked on. Further, we were asked to vacate our table the moment the check came to accommodate other diners. I’m under the impression that we were supposed to have the table for 1.5 hours and we were barely there for an hour, so that left a bitter taste for the restaurant.
We had the $70.00 sushi tasting menu. Instead of a twelve sushi assortment they gave us 2 sushi assortments of 6 each. The sushis included tuna, shrimp, salmon, fatty tuna, yellowtail - they were OK but not glistening. It came with a black cod roll which was some rather mediocre black cod dumped on slices of a cucumber roll. We had asked to sit outside, but they took us into an unpleasantly noisy dining room.
I have been going to Momoya for years and it has been a life saver for me during the pandemic. Thanks to the staff who had worked double shifts in a time where nearly everything else was closed. Their kindness and hard work has not gone unnoticed especially on a time when most had left NYC or isolated in their homes. Thanks for always being open even in winter before outdoor dining allowed heaters. I will always appreciate having a place to go.
Excellent and innovative sushi! We will definitely be back.
Seated very close to the table next to us, which included two loud and rude men demeaning women. The food took an hour and a half to arrive and was not the same level of quality as previously experienced at Momoya.
Very friendly service! Great quality food!
LOVED it. So so great. It was super hot at our outdoor seating, but we had a fan going which was nice.
First date. Very busy night and tables are very close. Love the food but would have like a bit more separation from other tables. Overall highly recommend this place.
Everything was amazing. There has never been a time that I was dissatisfied with Momoya
Things were hectic due to rain so we had to wait 15mins extra even though we had a reservation, but that was understandable. We were seated at a very small table despite being a party of 4 because they were apparently overwhelmed by the rain. That was irritating only because I could see on the host’s computer system that they were seating walk-ins. So why weren’t they prioritizing their reservations? Anyway, service for the rest of the meal was fine, not great because we couldn’t see or get the attention of our server for a good chunk of time between receiving our food and the check. I had wanted another drink but never got a chance to ask for one. Food was delicious! So good that despite a weird beginning and semi OK service I’d definitely go back. Try the popcorn chicken and rainbow roll! Chocolate cake was fantastic too!
Initially, we had great service. But as soon as our food came out, we had to ask for a server to come over and get more drinks. All four of us would have had another drink had one been offered. But instead we asked for the check after sitting with empty glasses for 20 minutes. Adding to our frustration, we were then asked to vacate our table as they had another reservation coming in after us.
Food was delicious. No wait with a reservation. Nice ambiance. Service was a bit spotty by the end but it was somewhat late in the evening. We sat outside and there were a few rats running underneath our feet, probably caused by a nearby restaurant going through demoltion / closing. It wasn't Momoya's fault at all and it's what you get for summer in NYC but not a great experience when paying for premium sushi. I will come back soon but maybe not worth the premium prices. I do love the fish quality tho!
Wonderful service and great food and varied menu.
Good dining but hostess gave us a hard time about asking to change our reservation from outside to inside. They did accommodate us which I appreciated, but got a lot of unnecessary attitude and negativity from the hostess over it.
The food was fabulous and the staff warm, welcoming, accomodating and knowledgeable.
I love MOMOYA and enjoy their marvelous food and service every week!
Good sushi always!
We weren’t seated until 905 for our 845 reservation. We then had to wait another 15 minutes before a waiter came to help us. Our kale dumplings were NOT hot. Our sushi was excellent as always.
Worst service of my entire life. Food took forever but was fantastic per usual at Momoya. Asked for mgr multiple times and never came over. Server was horrific and even took 30 mins to get a drink/water.
Wow. Server was super stressed. Our request to acknowledge our daughters birthday was completely forgotten or ignored. We never even got our water refilled. It was disappointing not to have our daughters special day acknowledged. The server even left the check super hastily on our table without making eye contact. We eat at the best and the service was not good at all.
The food was very good as always but the service was very slow and disorganized.
Momoya was great for a small group and was safe from Covid perspective. Only issue was, they were closing at 10 and we were told we had to put food and drink orders in by 9:30 as they were closing the kitchen.
Great food & service
Food was ok, not good enough for the price. Was sitting far too close to adjacent tables. We were rushed through our meal. No need to go back
I love the freshness of the sushi at MOMOYA and the staff is really warm and friendly! It is one of my favorite neighborhood places.
Had dinner last night, however both the quality of the food we have been eating at this restaurant for many years, but the quality of the food was noticeably poor, especially the sushi. Despite having "buzzers" on the table, you would press them and no one would ever turn up, so you were still having to flag down wait staff to chase up on order placed a long time earlier - the wait time for the food on what seemed to be a moderately filled restaurant was very poor.
Delicious. Fresh. Definitely will go back.
I love dining at Momoya. The seafood is always ultra fresh and their selection of sushi and sashimi can't be beat! The staff is especially wonderful and really take great care of me each and every time I am there. It is a real neighborhood favorite of mine.
We had a wonderful time - the food was excellent; the service good and the atmosphere very pleasant!
Delicious food. Beautifully prepared. Big portions. Lovely outdoor tables with plexiglass dividers and overhead fans. A little pricey but such high quality food is worth it. Definitely will return.
Amazing food - quick service- great music play list
Momoya offers reasonable quality food, not great, but not bad either. Some items on the menu were not available. Service was good-natured but spotty; the waiters looked a bit harassed. Outdoor dining on Amsterdam Avenue is lively but not peaceful.
Great Friday night out
So nice to be outside for dinner on a very pleasant May evening after being cooped up in apartment as I work from home during the pandemic. Food presentation and preparation continues to be first rate at our local neighborhood eatery. Staff is very friendly.
It was wonderful to be back at Momoya again. Lovely food and service and excellent social distancing measures. I look forward to dining with them again soon.
i had a reservation at 9.00, I arrived 45 minutes earlier and they were very flexible and give me a table in a few minutes.
The food was excellent, fresh and very well presented, the service great and fast.
I will definitely go back to try all the food of their interesting menu.
