If you don't mind deafening (and bad!) music and an indifferent (and seemingly poorly trained) waitstaff, THE FOOD HERE IS VERY VERY GOOD--as well as quite interesting.
if i lived in the city, i would order out from here regularly, but not sure i would again brave the double annoyance of not being able to carry on a conversation and the wretched service. (i know that there is a staffing problem right now at most restaurants, but the people you DO have could be better trained.)

We came an hour before closing and they ran out of most positions - they had no chicken, no beef and no tofu. The noodles tasted a little stale and overcooked - overall, it wasn’t worth the money.

The food is amazing
The service is awful

My recommendation is to order take out or just delivery unless you’re ok spending a lot of time waiting for someone to seat you and take your order.

If it wasn’t for the service I would give it 5/5
But again food was great.

The food was quite good, but they forgot one of our dishes! We only had 2! Also, very different than the Wagamamas in the UK, much less choice at this location.

Disappointing and not the Wagamama I knew pre COVID. There was no distinction in flavor from dish to dish just one blob of siracha across them all. I won't be back.

The duck wing was horrible. I don’t think the chef tasted it before put it on the menu. The chili calamari was over cooked and not able to eat as well.

It’s started out well enough, appetizers were ok, server was attentive. Then something changed……Our meals came out staggered. There were three of us, by the time the third got their meal, the first had finished. Ordered dessert, took 40 minutes before someone came over and told us they ran out. Food was less than average, could’ve gone to Panda Express and had a better experience.

Other guest’s dog on the seat and barking ruined any potential positive ambiance
Our dishes came out 10 min apart
It was not busy at all so no excuse

The waiter was friendly but a little forgetful but that’s okay, everyone has those days. My meal came with an egg but the egg was missing from the meal.

Overall it was good but just very average. The food didn’t complete my justify the price.

Food was amazing! Service was okay when we got it, but I was sick and spent most of the evening in the bathroom. While I was away from the table, my partner was mostly ignored, having to ask the host for water and ask to order. I would have felt better about the experience if he were able to enjoy attentive service from the staff.

We love that Wagamana makes such delicious vegan options!
Our kid is a bit of a picky eater, but he always enjoys his Katsu Curry (minus the curry sauce, but that means more curry for daddy!) So we know where to go for a flawless family meal - and the vibe is always welcoming and relaxed - a plus for dining with kids. :)

You need to have a manager on duty. While the servers were young and enthusiastic, the experience was a mess.

After dropping off menus to my wife and I, the waitress took our order, which was two appetizers and two entrees. A second waiter then told us they couldn’t tell us which food would come out in any particular order. So I got a entree before my appetizer, and my wife’s entree showed up a considerable time later than mine. Who runs a restaurant like this?

The wait staff never came back to fill our water glasses or check with us as to any additional requests. They were hanging out chatting with each other and another guest at another table for awhile. I was tempted to ask them if they were still working or had checked out for the night.

We then had to ask for our check 3 or 4 times. After it showed up, no one ever came back to get our credit card. Finally I took both my card and the check up to our waitress on the way to the men’s room. When I came back, they had left a credit card processing device at our table. After another 10 minute wait, and no one showing up, I just ran the card through the machine myself and we then left.

We never saw or heard from a manager. Even though the food was good, it was One of the most poorly managed dining experiences I have ever had. All of this is easily correctable with a manager and a trained wait staff, but the manager has to actually come to work and oversee the cooking and wait staffs.

We were the only ones eating outside, and midtown is pretty quiet. Food was delicious. Staff was friendly and informed. Only improvement would be if there were heaters for outside dining. Can't wait to return.
It's a big space and seemingly little traffic in quiet midtown. I hope the location survives.
