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.
Family went out for dinner after seeing it on TV food was amazing service was great and it came out quick too. Probably the best pork buns I’ve ever had ever.
Lived up to the hype. Server had excellent recommendations and will definitely be back
Last time I was here was pre-pandemic. I always loved coming here. Was here a couple nights ago without knowing I had to sit in front of the restaurant with lots of people passing by, the cars driving so close to the built dining area and people without masks passing by and very noisy. Though I came here for the food and brought my partner for a date on a Saturday night. Couldn’t make it romantic. It was a little loud. But the food was on point as always. Truly enjoyed the explosion of flavors and I missed it so much. The ambience threw it off but the food made up for it. Liked how things were contact free.
Excellent experience! We had a great meal, the staff was very accommodating.
We saw the show on Open Table and were curious to try the home made noodles and roasted tomatoes. They did not disappoint. We tried a number of appetizers including the eggplant, cauliflower, fried chicken and bao. Each was delicious and unique. We also had the shio ramen which was also outstanding. The server was friendly and service was very quick. We had the warm green tea and some sake and we were very happy with those as well. I would HIGHLY recommend to anyone.
Excellent! We will definitely come back over and over again.
We really enjoyed our meal at Ivan Ramen. The cauliflower was like nothing we'd tried before, and the chicken curry was super cozy. Service was great.
Everything was great. Service and food A++. My first time having ramen and was blown away with flavor and my husbands 100th ramen bowl and he enjoyed it very much.
Yummy vegan ramen. Good vegetarian options
After watching "Chef's Table" feature on Ivan Orkin, my expectations were high. The Ramen lived up to my expectations! It was a very cold rainy day when we were there. The Saki and hot bowl of Ramen warmed our souls. Thank you for the excellent service!
Spot we had outside was a little cramped but fine. Server was super friendly and went out of his way for us. Food was excellent. Had the fried eggplant to start and then the Shio ramen.
As usual, excellent food and incredible service! Was an awesome treat and I’d go back anytime!
The staff is fantastic and the food is sooo yummy
Always a favorite when we visit ny. Chicken patain & triple garlic pork ramens rock. Eggplant and string bean appetizers were both good, though the second was a little heavy handed on chili.
Absolutely love this restaurant. The food is incredible. Obviously most people come here for ramen. My favorite is the Crispy Eggplant and Pork buns starter, and the Vegan ramen for main. I'm not even a vegan I just really like them. You can tell how much effort and thought went into each dish. My boyfriend isn't a fan of ramen but they have Katsu Curry which is a super universal dish so don't worry if you're not into Ramen they have other yummy dishes. I always bring people here and 19/20 times they're obsessed. The food is hearty but doesn't leave you feeling groggy. Its the best food for when you want somewhere to go which isn't pretentious but has a nice vibe and incredible food.
Amazing flavor and comfort food. Love Vegan Raman.
Incredible food and impeccable service! This is one of my favorite restaurants in the neighborhood.
Funky NYC vibe. Super fresh, really delicious food. Great service.
first time back since lockdown, had a great time and enjoyed the food. i’m glad to see this place still up and running to amazing standards. can’t wait to go back!
Ramen at Ivan is absolutely great, probably the best. However, this time around, my Tonkotsu was not as perfect as in previous occasions. Keep always quality to the top!
The food at Ivan Ramen was everything we'd hoped for and more! In addition to the absolutely incredible dishes, the service was outstanding. Our server was super helpful and had a great personality. We can't wait to go back!
Absolutely the most disrespectful staff ever. Arrived for my reservation a few minutes early and was told “your table is hanging out... it’ll be just a few minutes.” I said no problem and waited. Within 10 minutes, two more couples came in and were seated immediately. The manager (I think) even came to me and said “the table before you was late so it’ll be a bit.” I even heard a server say “oh they’re playing games at the table so it’ll be a while” to the hostess.
Waited 25 minutes past my reservation time and was never seated. Decided to eat elsewhere. Embarrassingly terrible way to run a business honestly.
Great as always!
Food was delicious and the service was outstanding. Looking forward to going again!
The cauliflower appetizer is a must. Ramen was very good. Eggplant appetizer was delicious.
