Recent reviews praise the food but not the service, so I was pleasantly surprised. Restaurant management must have gotten the message. Our meals last night were superb and the service was really good.

To be fair, the food was delicious. And the hostess was friendly - even offered to take a picture for me. The waiters, however, didn't look at us when they brought us things or when taking our order, never smiled, didn't fill water glasses til we asked, and spilled water without cleaning it up or apologizing.

We recently ate at Congee Village for the second time. The first time the food was excellent and the service good. This time the service was terrible, brusque and unfriendly and the food wasn't good either. I wouldn't go back. There are too many other Chinese restaurants in NYC to go back to want that's not consistent in food or... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the hotel receptionist (in an hotel based in Chinatown, NY). I asked him for authentic Chinese cuisine based locally, at reasonable cost. Less than 1/2 mile away was the Congee Village. Loved the fact that a pot of green tea is delivered to the table immediately you are seated. Personally, I prefer to... More

Spent Christmas in NY 2013. After waiting almost an hour for a table, we were sat in the lower level. Tables are very close together. Waiter was super busy and the kitchen was out of several desired entries. We ordered a variety of dishes and shared them on the lazy susan that was conveniently located in the center of the... More

Don't expect great ambience or service (your waitperson may be cleaning vegetables at an adjacent table) but the food makes up for it. Great selections and good sized portions.

Cute atmosphere as the place is decorated like a fishing house in the section we were seated. Food was good. But all was ruined by the wait help. They told our host ( in chinese) to hurry up and order, and they proceeded to argue with him when we replyed we were not ready. The wait help also with held... More

Haven't been to Congee Village in years, but no worries it hasn't changed either. We went at an inbetween hour, not lunch, but not dinner yet either. We were seated right away, but only got two menus for four people, had to ask for two more. You have to get a waiters attention to order, but once you order, look... More
