The staff were amazing. The food less so; poorly seasoned.I’m not sure I would return. I recall eating at Wagamama in London on Lexington street. It was much better food-wise.

I loved how warm the ambiance was and how attentive the staff had been. They were on top of any requests and our food had been brought out in a timely manner. The teriyaki chicken donburi and shirodashi pork ramen were very flavorful and amazing. They also offer vegan options which were very helpful! I plan on returning to try more dishes.

An excellent and Covid restriction respectful environment with a friendly staff, delicious food and a great variety of vegan items!! I’ve been to the Wagamama in Brighton, England and I can honestly say that my experience here in New York was equally delightful.

The food was incredible and served very quickly. The waitress Margie was genuinely kind and warmed our spirits as we were seated outside due to COVID restrictions. The dumplings were so good we had to order more to go. The great service is reason enough for us to re-visit when we are back in town.

Early evening outdoor bistro table on Bdwy. Nice dining under the City lights w/a battery operated lamp. All Covid protocols followed by staff. Am big fan of Wagamamma since finding it in London several years ago. Hope they survive in NYC during this tough period. Will continue to be a patron!

The service is great. The host sat me immediately while I was waiting a friend to arrive. The server was professional and attentive. I ordered the chicken ramen. It was alright, at par. It was nothing to run back for.

Slight problem with reservations, name was not on the list after reserving, they was kind enough to seat my party immediately.
Take extra precautions of social distancing and follow state law for pre-screen before dining.
Food was delicious but due to covid 19 some items were taken off the menue which was a huge downer for me.
Food did not take long to arrive to the table, and was periodically attendes to for any needs.

It was a lot of fun enjoying a delicious meal right on Broadway. The food was full of flavor as always, and the service was excellent. All pandemic protocol is followed and the tables are placed at a safe distance so you can enjoy your meal stress free. Happy to be dining at Wagamama again and will be back soon :)

Great job of outdoor seating arrangement and COVID safe practices, yet still very welcoming and fun. The 'panda cups' of sake are a tasty choice.

Really good, casual ramen and other bites. I went with my teenage, so it was perfect. Really liked to bao bun. The food comes out as it is ready which makes for a somewhat choppy eating experience which was the only negative
