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.

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.
