Wait staff Amazing
Usually this location is great. I can with my family and our server couldn't get one of our orders straight for over an hour. And when the order finally came it was still wrong. People working in the restaurant industry are over worked right now, restaurants are under staffed. We were patient and understanding but disappointed that our daughter who waited over an hour and half for her meal and juice left with no meal at 10pm. It was a bummer.
The table service was horrible and disappointing, considering it was not as busy.
Dessert portion of ice was literally a tablespoon for 10 dollars. will think thrice before going back.
Delicious food. Drinks took a long time. But guests were allowed to walk through the restaurant (indoors) without a mask. And not much regard for social distancing.
Great staff! Great food! Love it here
This is a great option for a quick and delicious dinner for under $20 an entree in a city where $30 is expected.
Just an all around solid choice for good food at a reasonable price point. Service was spot on.
It was delicious
This was a perfect spot for lunch before heading to MSG on a Sunday! I have been to Wagamamas in the UK and France so I was excited to see there were 2 in midtown! Friendly service, inventive cocktails, and reliable flavorful and healthy asian fusion!
waited an hour for one dish during a weekday lunch. The restaurant was pretty empty but the kitchen was busy making Doordash/Uber Eats/etc orders instead of filling the orders of folks who are sitting in their restaurant. Won't go back.
Amazing food and amazing service!
Always consistently fantastic! Great food and great service.
The waiter was wonderful and the ambience was great! The yuzu cocktail is a must.
I think the service can be probably improved. Asked for no Mushrooms, that was not incorporated etc.
Literally the worst dining experience I’ve ever had. They’re short staffed, not attentive at all. Took 30 mins to bring me water, hour for food (food was awful like awful) but the waiter didn’t even come back once after taking the order to even inform him how bad the food was. Had to flag someone down to order and had to flag someone down to pay.
Service was absolutely horrible!
If you are a long time Wagamama patron, the new menu may disappoint - or you may enjoy the changes.
While the tone of the restaurant has somewhat changed - what is most noticeable is how waitstaff help has now become incompetent and glacial and the teams no longer seem to coordinate and work together - the efficiency of food delivery which is a universal Wagamama standard seems to have been completely lost at this location (I watched adjacent areas in the restaurant suffer from the same incompetency).
Everything was great except that our main dishes came out at different times and my dish was so late, my colleagues already finished thier noodles before i even got them.
I love this place! We went two times in the last week!
Food was fresh and delicious! The waiter was attentive but not overbearing. They allowed us to take our time during our meal. Highly recommend this wonderful restaurant.
Food wasn't that great, but my son likes it. Food came out at all different times, so my food was cold by the time my sons arrived. I think a problem is too many people stopped at our table with no one really knowing what had been ordered, what had been delivered, what was yet to come. If one person had been responsible for our service and food delivery I think that would not have been an issue.
Our server was wonderful and super patient and friendly, especially considering we were a large group (20 ppl). The food was great and loved the decor and ambiance, as well.
Last visit to NYC before moving west! Wagamama London was a favorite so decided to try the NYC outpost and it was wonderful!
The ambience is very nice. The food was good was good and the serving is enough; not too light not too heavy.
It was fun to sample a number of things on the menu and our waiter, Gerrit, was a great help navigating.
Wagamama has very quick service but almost too quick as the people are on top of you. Their outdoor seating was not great though it was what we preferred and they could have made that area better. So we ate inside. The food is good and decent but nothing special in terms of Japanese/Asian fare. Their pricing is decent for NYC. Their drink selection, especially juices, is almost better than their food.
Food was great, trendy atmosphere and very nice staff. Highly recommended.
No waiter came to our table. I had to flag down a waiter after waiting 20mins. My friends ramen came after mine we weren’t served at the same time. No one check in on us. We had to flag someone down again when we were finished.
My very first ramen and I liked it a lot!!
Food was fantastic, and our server was also!
The food is okay-ish.
The starters were better than the mains (were a bit tasteless)
The cocktails are very good.
Very good service
Great food. Not busy. Attentive and friendly service. Recommended.
Everything was so on-point—delicious food (the bao are ridiculously good) and the drinks are excellent! Staff was friendly and so helpful with their recs. Will absolutely go again next time I’m in the area.
overall it was a pleasant experience, good food, music and ambiance.
I would have given more stars but unfortunately my dish arrived at least 10 minutes after my friend s dish, which was awkward because she was very polite and waited the whole time until mine came too. I have to add the waiter had correctly “ warned” us that they were very busy and it might take longer. To the kitchen: please try to coordinate timing of dishes then, it would have been better to wait together without her dish getting cold. Other than that, great food! Thank you!
Waited an hour for food.
Delicious food! Very reasonably priced! Our favorite are the duck lettuce wraps and dumplings! And you can’t go wrong with ramen!
Food was tasty, drinks were delicious, service was incredible and fast!
Took appropriate COVID precautions, including temperature checks and contact tracing, as well as social distancing. Food, as always, was incredible, and everyone that works there is so pleasant!!
Good meal, professional staff.
Great service and a very cool building. The food was just okay though, nothing that truly stuck out. I had chicken ramen and it was just okay.
