Muy buena atención, excelente comida, muy buena recomendación del mesonero. Y el precio muy bueno. Volvería. Lo amamos
The food and service was A++! It was really loud and tables were too close together.
Overall still very good!
As always the ramen here is beyond the pail in quality. I haven’t had better. And the yuzu cheesecake is literally the possible end to a meal. I would have hoped for a bit more depth of flavor in the bao buns though. Maybe a sauce that brings a counter point to the pork. Service was solid if a bit focused on turning tables. All in all a very pleasurable experience
AMAZING!!!! best ramen and pork buns that I have ever had. Won’t be able to get ramen anywhere else now. This should definitely be a go-to for everyone whether you like in NYC or are a visitor! Thank you thank you!
My family and I travel 90min to eat at Ivan’s. Ever since we saw it in Netflix 2/3 years agos we do the peregrination to the ramen temple. We love the homemade umami feeling it leaves us with.
Tried the cheesecake yesterday, and will take the trip on that alone. Ivan’s is more than food to us, is the whole experience.
Excellent food and helpful staff. Loved everything we had. The cauliflower app was amazing and the chicken broth was so rich and delicious.
sat near door-food is the main event-atmosphere is plain but really a wonderful experience
There was a bad pork odor to the tonkotsu stew, extremely underwhelming. Japanese fried was in confusingly small chunks. Everything was portioned so small yet overpriced! Nothing about Ivan Ramen was authentic at all. Very disappointed!
Hosted a small bridal brunch on the patio and it was amazing. Restaurant was so accommodating and server was great! Food is always incredible
I feel as though the quality has gone down since the first time I was there. However, the staff and service was amazing.
Amazing food great service. Can’t wait to come back. Worth the trip!!!
Always great service and food. Will is the best!
Amazing service! Thank you!!
Most interesting ramen I’ve ever had in my life. Expertly executed, absolutely delicious. I can easily see why many people consider it the best. Very rare you can truly say this, but it absolutely lives up to the hype.
Will be back!
Great Spot! Service is great! Food come quick and the food is good!
Incredible food! I loved the cauliflower. We will definitely be returning.
Loved the staff AND food!!
The food is amazing as usual. My friends loved it! Service is equally good. We had to wait to be seated but the restaurant made up for it by giving us great appies.
Tables were quite close together, apps were great, ramen was underwhelming unfortunately.
Excellent food and service! I love the atmosphere of the outdoor seating area in the back.
My only complaint was I ordered the wrong ramen for me. It was the Tokyo Shio. I did not like the taste of the broth. My husband had the chicken Paitan. It was perfect! the pork belly buns were the best we have ever had! The crispy eggplant on tahini will be something I will dream about! I'm from the Boston area and I cannot wait to go back for a dinner-that way we"ll order more food to try!
Ivan Ramen does not disappoint. If you’re looking for Japanese food that you won’t want to stop eating, this place is a must.
The food was absolutely incredible! Our server was oddly standoffish, but the rest of the staff were super kind and welcoming.
Great as always! 3rd time in 3 months. Love this place. Spoke w Ivan who was at the restaurant last night. I had Shio ramen w chicken. absolute home run. And love the extra noodles at the end to finish up the bowl.
There was One very loud table, but other than that the experience was great and tasty
Great service, delicious meal
One of the best ramen in Ny
I have eaten ramen all over nyc, I was excited to try Ivan Ramen finally after seeing him on Chef’s Table. It was delicious. The noodles were a little soft, however that generally didn’t bother me one bit.
Get the spicy pickle appetizer — it was delicious
Service was great! Both hostess & waiter were wonderful. Food was very tasty, layered and full. The backyard outdoor seating was spacious and lovely. Throughly enjoyed our meal.
Legendary as always
Ivan Ramen is one of the best restaurant experiences in Manhattan time and time again. William is a natural server and bartender, knowledgeable, humble, and sociable with guests. The Shio and Curry Flower are crown jewels of the menu.
The ramen lived up to the hype and the service was very good. Would love to go again and would recommend to anyone who loves ramen.
Will is a great bartender / waiter !
Good food, smiling people, good service and good value
We chose to sit outside in front of the restaurant on a day when the massive trucks get to use that street, so it was sufficiently noisy but otherwise a lovely delicious meal with a fabulous server. The food holds up so no matter what kind of hater reviews you read, everything was above and beyond the rep. We loved the cukes, the crispy eggplant, Japanese fried chicken and sesame noodles. All good all around. Loved it!
The food was fantastic. The kids loved the pork buns and curry. The triple k triple garlic was so, so good. All staff members we came in contact with were welcoming and patient. Everyone in our party is planning another visit.
