Ivan Ramen imagines the Classic NY diner as seen through the Japanese lens. The food is incredible, the service outstanding, the menu is uniquely Ivan Orkin. Ivan Ramen celebrates Ivan’s creativity through the lens of his life journey. His effortless blending of: his New York roots, his classic French training, and his deep understanding of Japan, color the menu and the restaurant. Ramen here is clearly a must, but you should not miss out on the amazing array of other dishes, which are perfect for sharing while you enjoy a well selected sake. Casual, comfortable and quirky with splashes of art inspired by pop culture and movies, Ivan Ramen is simply a fun restaurant.

Had to wait 15 minutes for my table. Service was a little rushed which was understandable since I was there on a Friday night, and the restaurant wasn’t operating at full capacity due to local restrictions.
Overall a great bowl of ramen, and nice to see that Ivan himself was on site.
I have been going to Ivan Ramen for years and was so happy to be back and eating inside. The food is as delicious as ever. Old standbys like the fried chicken were again amazing, and the newer dishes like the tomato salad were so good. The wait staff is great at recommendations (they advised eating the pickles with the fried chicken and they were right!). It felt like seeing an old friend again! Highly highly recommended.
Spectacular ramen, spectacular service, looking forward to going back.
The ramen tasted amazing and the service was kind, attentive and fast.
Outstanding experience! We went to Ivan Ramen with high expectations and they were all exceeded, from service to food! We had the eggplant appetizer (must have!) , my wife had the vegetarian ramen, which has the best tofu you will ever eat and I had one with pork (forgot the name), very rich flavored and delicious! We highly recommend it and we can’t wait to be back!
A perfect place with excellent staff and food. My favorite restaurant in NYC.
Ivan ramen lived up to expectations! Great food, sake, and the apps were awesome!
The two waitresses that were working with our table were friendly, great personalities and great energy. We would definitely go back. Reservations a must.
All in all with Covid restrictions this was a fantastic experience. The dividers made us feel safe and the staff all wore masks. As for the food we loved it! My husband got the triple pork triple garlic entree and I got the Tokyo shoyu. Both were fantastic! Definitely recommend. It is worth every penny!
Favorite ramen in NYC, the Japanese fried chicken and pork buns are a must!
I love Ivan Ramen and been coming here from the beginning. The service was interesting and questioned when I paid the bill when I left cash on the table, she ran outside after me but I gave 30% tip on top of bill on the table.
On our list for NYC because of Chefs Table episode - did not disappoint. A little off the beaten path we usually visit but totally worth it!! Service was wonderful and helped us with the menu options. Chicken ramen was delicious!!! Definitely will go back
Amazing food and staff. Our waitress was friendly and attentive and the other staff members helped keep our waters full and service flowing. Food was topnotch. Wish I could have spent all day there trying everything.
i love it here! the food is great, comes out relatively fast, & the workers are sweethearts.
Waiter spilled water all over me
delicious food and fun decor very pleasant wait staff
Service was so on point and genuine!
Food was Nick out need to go back lots more to have
I love Ivan ramen and i’m so glad that they were able to stay open after the pandemic. The food and service is still top notch!
Our server was absolutely amazing. She had such great character and attitude. When one order did not come out correctly, she was on it to have corrected before we could even ask. The birthday dessert/song was a wonderful surprise. We are always happy to return to Ivan Ramen.
Ivan continues to be a ramen powerhouse after lighting the NYC ramen scene on fire years ago.
It was AWESOME!
Legit flavors, I was just transported back to Japan with the Ramen and the Yuzu lemonade, if you are in NYC and love Japanese food, this place is a must!!!
Ily Ivan ramen and staff❤️❤️😘
Food was AMAZING, and super friendly staff! Very COVID safe as well.
Best ramen and pork buns I have had in long time.
My daughter just came in from Afghanistan & was craving ramen . Sat outside, sunny day and food was great as usual ! Pork buns are classic !
A fantastic dining experience, the value is also incredible. Some of the best food in NY for a very reasonable rate.
Quick and Knowledgeable staff. Green Beans are the BEST dish in NYC right now.
I decided to try this place after plans fell through with friends. I’m so happy that I did. The food was delicious
Just loved it!!! Came home and saw the checs table episode!
Amazing food and service. The ramen and appetizers were incredible
The waiter was super helpful, gave great recommendations, and was ready to assist if we needed anything. The food was amazing as always, and I would 100% come back soon.
Go. 10/10, can not recommend enough! The food, the saki- it was crazy.
This place is iconic in every way. The food is delicious, the drink program is on point, and everyone's very nice. You simply can't go wrong with Ivan Ramen.
It was amazing the staff were so nice the waiter was great they took care of mg wins gifts and brought them out with the cake singing happy birthday, perfect!
Excellent ramen, including a new one with a rich chicken broth, and great warm service.
Always the best experience. Jonathan is the best waiter ever
I've been to Ivan 3 times hoping that the food would be better the next time I go. Every time I'm disappointed in the flavors. The taste of the food is not worth the price considering there are much better bowls of ramen in NY with similar prices. The service is very good, however.
Really loved the entire experience. Can't wait to go back soon.
Each item was better then the next, fun and bright. Great Sake! intresting beer menu.
Food delicious. Best vegetarian ramen in the City.
