    An incredible experience. Food, wine and service all brilliant. Unpretentious is the best part, laid back but oh so serious about the stuff you put in your mouth. Worth every cent.

    The egg, beef and deconstructed carrot cake were all fantastic. About 75% of the prix fixe menu is fantastic and about 25% is blah

    Simply amazing! Everything on the tasting menu was great. The service was spot on. It's great for a special occasion or if you feel like spoiling yourself w/an amazing meal this is where you splurge!

    Perfect ambiance to leisurely enjoy this 12 course meal, Ko makes you want to become a regular. Skip the wine pairings and celebrate with sparkling sake.

    Incredible experience. Relaxed, laid back atmosphere with fine dining level food. It's been a few months since I've been, but I still dream about the foie gras and lychee dish.

    Easily worth the $125 for a 10 course tasting menu. 12 seats, casual, intimate setting to enjoy David Chang. 48hr sous vide short rib, fried; Ko egg with caviar. Skip wine pairings, do sparkling sake.

    The afternoon tasting during the weekends is awesome. Small staff with the chefs cooking and serving you. The egg dish is outstanding. Be sure to skip breakfast. There are no photos allowed.

    Momofuku's r always great experiences but dining at Ko is for sure the most incredible. Between molecular & asian food, favorite r the shaved foie gras & kimchi consomme with oysters + braised cabbage

    BYOW. The wine list is good and there are some decent deals but corkage fee @ $45 is a better deal if you bring two nice bottles.

    No menu, all surprises. Look for plates like 48-hour short ribs, nori-wrapped scallop, or egg in bacon-dashi broth. – Green Guide Editor

    The most ridiculously amazing lunch I've ever had. The lunch (only on weekends) is by far much better than the dinner.

    The chef put every possible thing in that place in his mouth and back into the food. Gross. Will NOT be back.

    Puffed egg over dashi: four words that will always make my eyes roll towards the back of my head. If you can snag a reservation for lunch, do it. It's worth every penny. Also, rice cream cone.

    Try to get a reservation on Sunday afternoons, that is when the site is getting the least traffic. Thus making it the easiest to get the hardest reservation in town.
