Music was insanely loud. Service was incredibly slow. Food was mediocre and entrées came out before appetizers... the place appeared to be in mass confusion even though it was only 1/4 full.

So we were big fans of Wagamama from our experience in London, when they opened in NYC we could not wait to try it. We got there and after being seated it more than 20 minutes for a waiter to come to our table for the first time, and that's after I went to the host and told her that no one came to take any orders in more than 20 minutes. Then a waitress came and she was nice an apologetic. She took our orders (Drinks and food). My plate came first and it took another 10 minutes or so before my wife and kids plates came. My wife's chicken was under cooked and that's really bad when it comes to chicken. My dish was OK but barely had a half a breast of chicken. My son's steak dish was barely warm even though it was the last one to arrive. We complained and they gave us free dessert but overall we were disappointed with the experience.

Service shockingly poor, only ordered two mains (as the starters we wanted were not available) and they came almost 10 minutes apart. I was almost finished mine by the time my wife’s was brought. Manager stated it was because of the way the kitchen is set up?????
Food was good though

3 of us went for an overdue lunch. Got a booth, staff was on point and extremely welcoming. Orders were accurate. Food came out hot and quick. Had ramen and gyoza. Ramen was pretty good. Gyoza was decent, and with very tasty dipping sauce. Overall solid experience. Will keep coming back.

None of the food was very good. The pork belly bao had an apple slice on it (which is mentioned on the menu) that didn't work well. The wait staff threw out our leftovers after we asked them for a to go bag because it was practically a full entree's worth. They did provide a replacement to go. Prices were reasonable but the poor food and mediocre service made the overall experience not worth it.

I’m not sure if this is a restaurant. It was more like a Chipotle. The food was reminiscent of a fast food chain at best. The service was non existent. It was just me & my husband eating. We ordered the same drink. Only got 1. We ordered a bunch of shareable plates. We weren’t given any small plates to eat on. Getting anyone’s attention was nearly impossible. There were like 5 different people bringing the orders to the table. Looking around it seemed like the staff had no set role. Everyone did everything. It looked chaotic. I felt bad for the staff. And the food didn’t even make up for it. It really wasn’t good. I wouldn’t go back even if it was free and I wouldn’t recommend this place.

Needed to ask for music volume to be lowered. Service was spotty and we frequently had to wave servers over to ask for things like water, to order a second round of drinks, to ask for serving utensils and plates since we had specified we were sharing the dishes, etc. Food was mediocre and not very flavorful; and some of the fish was undercooked. Cocktails were very good.

The restaurant looks lovely- huge space. We ordered ramen which arrived room temperature. Drinking glasses were served with water spots all over- appeared to have just come out of dishwasher maybe? We were delivered incorrect food three times during our lunch and were brought the check twice by two different servers. Seemed disorganized. Food was fine but room temperature ramen is disappointing.

Although the restaurant was quite empty and there seemed to be a fair number of waitstaff the service was indifferent. We were handed a check after the main course and had to ask for a dessert menu.Then there was a long wait for the dessert. Also, the elevator to the restrooms downstairs was creaky and scary. Altogether a disappointing experience at a restaurant we had enjoyed in the past.

Great! Definitely enjoy the bang bang cauliflower - delicious! I opted for the ramen and also really enjoyed that. I was happy to see so many juice options because as a pregnant person, there are not always fun N/A options on menus, so it was a welcome surprise. They did not have the up beet, but the mango juice I had was a great substitute!

Food was great. Service was not fast during either of our two visits. Also, both times, the wait staff brought an item we didn’t order (a drink the first time and a dessert the second) and said something to the effect of “thought you’d like this” and it was on our bill. Don’t get me wrong, Delicious, but both times ended up paying for things we didn’t order.

irst time we tried the West 55th Street location as I normally go to Wagamama on Third Avenue which is consistently AWESOME. The food was great and the servers friendly however the table coverage was slow and there weren't that many people dining at mid-day on Saturday. Also, I had mentioned that one of us had a birthday and nothing was done... I thought perhaps a candle might have been put into one of the deserts. Apart from this, would definitely recomment as a pre-matinee option on weekends. LUV Wagamama!

We arrived just as the restaurant was opening so it was empty. Our order was taken and food served quickly. We usually avoid chain style restaurants but were pleasantly surprised as to the quality and taste of the dishes we ordered. We ordered chicken katsu curry, duck wings, pork belly bao. Wow. The duck wing appetizer was amazing. Fresh, crispy, with wonderful wonderful flavor. The pork belly bao was even tastier. We should have just ordered all of the bao appetizers and skipped the entree. We look forward to trying more dishes.

Price vs quantity of food is uneven. The main courses portion is somehow poor. By the price paid you could eat a lot better elsewhere.

Service was terrible. Drinks took over 30 mins to arrive. My friend never received her water glass. Waiter gave the wrong table our receipt. Host had to step into help him, and we were almost late to our show. Would not recommend this location.
