    Great Asian Fusion with a wonderful view. The restaurant is located in the Hudson Yard shops convenient to ritzy shopping. The decor was plush, and service was friendly. Plentiful small dishes -- perfect for tapas style eating (and drinking). Families may want to peruse the menu prior to visiting as flavors are delicious, but may be exotic and often spicy.

    Great menu for sharing. Portions are on the small side but absolutely delicious! The DJ was jamming the entire evening and really set this place outside of the ordinary with his play list. We had the best view in the house overlooking Hudson Yards and the Vessel in a prime corner table. Very attentive service.

    Great view. Great food - it is rare for Chinese born Americans to deem Asian Fusion cuisine palatable, but my GF loved it. Nice, accommodating staff. Menu was limited because it was the first day they reopened. We will certainly go back to try their Beijing duck, which I was told would become available again soon. Music was a bit loud for my taste, but we could actually talk to each other, which is not frequent in fancy Manhattanite restaurants.

    It was delicious. the view is amazing. Service is correct, the only thing I regret, we order the Pékin duck and we tried a few entrance as well so at the end we’ll still have a lot of food so we ask everything to go and the waiter never understood, apparently he trow everything in the trash..... such a shame! The manager offers 2 glass of muscadet but it wasn’t what we ask for. Too bad

    Wild Ink has some very delicious and extremely well made dim sum dumplings - highly recommended for brunch! Service was excellent and they gave us a perfect seat with a great view of the Vessel! Also using Open Table to book gave us complimentary prosecco and dessert! All around amazing experience and I would bring guests here for special occasions.

    Innovative pan-Asian cuisine. Sophisticated interior and cuisine. Outstanding service--attentive and informed staff. Sound ambiance could be better curated (ie: music choices--not very thoughtful. More sports bar than sophisticated dining).

    I had a wonderful meal at Wild Ink, including a soup dumpling appetizer, charred greens, and jumbo prawns in a sauce so good I wanted to drink it from a mug. My reservation included a promotion for a complimentary drink and dessert, and I really appreciated that those items were brought to the table gracefully and without my asking. It felt like a beautiful surprise from the kitchen, which was so nice considering that some places make you feel as though you are redeeming a coupon. Service was outstanding. I was dining by myself and thought the staff did a nice job of coming by to check so that I didn't feel alone, and also left me to enjoy my meal. Looking forward to returning soon!

    Used the restaurant week special for this get together with friends. At first we thought the portions were on the small side (like gourmet dim sum) but then there were 4 courses. Everything was delicious and we all left more than satisfied with the quality and thought the quality was superb!

    This was a NYC Restaurant Week visit so we tried it and we’re pleasantly surprised. As part of our initial New Yorker’s visit to Hudson Yards, online reviews of this restaurant seemed quite negative but our visit negated all of our misapprehensions. The food was excellent & the 4 course Restaurant Week menu provided good choices & ample portions. Our initial order was unduly delayed but they responded reasonably quickly, made corrections & comped our wine order. Beyond the early lapse by the kitchen, service was excellent. All of the food was tasty and some dishes had some original touches, though none were extraordinarily memorable. Overall, we had a wonderful meal in a really nice setting, an excellent value for what we had, though the high prices for the regular menu items may delay our return given so many alternatives.

    Had a nice lunch at Wild Ink during Restaurant Week. The space is airy and regular menu looked really good for a return. My friend enjoyed her artic char and my chicken entree was visually appealing and juicy. Alas there was a lapse between appetizers and entrees that cost us the luxury of time to share dessert on this visit.

    1. Cocktails were outstanding. All 3 we tried were creative and well-balanced. 2. Sevice was above average. They even brought us complimentary sparkling wine to thank us for making a reservation. The staff were also very accomodating. 3. Considering the expensive regular prices, the Restaurant Week menu is a great value. Everything we had was delicious. Standout dishes were the caesar salad and pork steam buns. 4. Based on this experience we will be back to try the regular menu! 5. Fabulous sunset view. 6. We had an early reservation; starting around 7pm they raised the level of the music so conversation became a little more difficult.

    Four of us came for restaurant week. I was surprised to learn they do 4 courses instead of the usual 3. The server was knowledgeable and made great drink recommendations. The food was delish!! Everything also came out hot/very warm (if it wasn't meant to be cold at least)!! For apps we got the wings, calamari and tuna. I particularly liked the calamari with the chili and gochujang sauce. We had the mushroom, mapo tofu and shrimp/bacon dumplings - no complaints! One of us got the arctic char, the rest of us got the steak. My complaint is actually that I didn't feel the steak knife was sharp enough or should have been serrated. We got the Chocolate tart and pineapple cake, which were both good, but I enjoyed the ice creams they came with the most, sesame and ginger. It was a great meal, and we had the perfect view of The Vessel. Highly recommend!!

    The Chinese New Year menu sounded great but had no flavor at all.The fish was deep fried...but no sauce.The 1 side dish of greens was not enough for 3 people...and the citrus salad with the fish was carrots...which is not a citrus.$55 ... The 3 scoops of ice cream was delicious...but served on a plate...that was warm...so the ice cream melted almost immediately. Come on... We have eaten there several time and it was fantastic! The regular menu is now more limited. David Gagnons the Assistant Mgr who we have met every time we have been there previously was not there on Saturday night.

    It was Restaurant week and I have food allergies. The server and chef went above and beyond to accommodate me and even substituted two items from the fixed menu so I didn’t have to skip a course. Very knowledgeable staff and I couldn’t have been happier.

    The food quality was very good. The service was excellent. The portions were very small. Prices were on the high side, but not astronomical. Roughly $45 per person for lunch without any alcohol. It's an upscale restaurant in a high-end shopping mall.
