I've been coming here for years and never thought to review it. Every trip to New York will include at least one visit to this institution. This is always on my list of places to eat when people ask about NY. When you need a delicious, wholesome, reasonable priced meal either in the middle of racing around during the day,... More

This was the first noisy restaurant in NY, as my husband remembers it. 17 years ago, it opened with trendy communal tables with backless benches, waiters with technology instead of pads to write your order. The food concept somehow seemed fresher then. Today, I'd love it to be taken over by a ShopHouse. It is convenient to the Greenmarket and... More

Our non-traditional menu and atmosphere are things we're really proud of, and it's disappointing to hear they weren't to your taste. That said, I want to assure you that your dishes will be spicy and flavorful next time. Hope to have a chance to impress sometime soon. Best, Edward, General Manager More

There is a chain of restaurants in the UK by the name of Wagamama and Republic seem to be their New York sibling. The ambience is essential, simple tables with no clothes and very few dishes that however are generously sized and not too highly priced, The cuisine is a far-eastern fusion, the service is fast and courteous and the...

The food was good, communal table setting was fine. It was a little hard to hear between the music and the chatter from everyone. Nice location at Union Square.
