After a mediocre meal at best they changed my credit card twice. When it was pointed out to them they agreed to give a credit back but not before arguing for 20 minutes till they agreed to the mistake. They then lied about putting the credit through. I had to have the bogus charge removed by calling the bank which... More

I have been The Cottage many times with friends or family. The food is always good and they offer free wine with dinner (you have to ask for it). My favorite is the Tangerine Prawns with string beans and for an appetizer the seafood dumplings in hot oil. I've brought my picky nephews and niece here and even they liked... More

I used to eat at Cottage everytime I went to shows at Irving Plaza because the food was good and the prices were great. I haven't been there in many years, but finally was able to have lunch there with my mom and sister during a recent visit to Manhattan. We all ordered lunch specials (chicken and broccoli, sesame chicken,... More

I've been going to the Cottage for years, and I can't ever recall a bad meal. I go primarily for lunch. They have great lunch specials, and the food is always fresh with amazingly fast service. I've gotten the chicken, shrimp, beef, and pork dishes—all excellent. And the delivery is like a Seinfeld episode—by the time you hang up, they... More

OK this is an update to my previous review. Now down graded to one star. If I could have given them no stars I would have done that. I took my wife and daughter to the Cottage today for a birthday lunch for my daughter. My go to lunch at this place is their roast pork noodle soup with cellophane... More

Hmm, this is tough, because I entered the door to the Azuki restaurant next to it, but it was adjoining the Chinese restaurant, into which I entered, The cottage. I went for lunch They gave me all three menus . I ordered the Obento box and was very happy with it. I saw reviews of the Azuki Sushi on Yelp... More

The dining room is bland (but the tables are well spaced) and the service is detached (but at least it is efficient). That said the food is very good. I dined with 3 friends and we ordered 4 entrees and they were all good, two were in fact very good. While we all ordered off the Chinese menu, there was... More

The food in the restaurant is quite good and portions are more than adequate. Service is quick, but not rushed. However, there is no handicapped access. While there are two entrances, neither of them are wheelchair or walker accessible. It would not be difficult to put a ramp at one of these entrances.

We are glad we live nearby. The restaurant is clean, open and casual. You can go here alone or with a large family and feel comfortable. The lunch specials include a soup, appetizer and main dish for $8.95. My daughter and I can split one and are completely full when we leave. We all have our favorite dishes - my... More

The Cottage was my go to place for Chinese food when I worked in the area over 10 years ago. I was recently in the Union Square area and the urge for the Cottage's Roast Pork noodle soup was too strong to ignore. It had been over 10 years since I was last in this place. It still looked the... More
