Loved The Cottage and everything about it all the years I lived on the Upper Westside. Now, whenever I get back to visit the City, I make it a point to have at least one meal there. The food is always delicious and dependable, the staff friendly and helpful. My "go to" place, then and now!

Quality of food is really below average for a Chinese quick fix restaurant. Obviously caters to a crowd with little experience with genuine Chinese food and more bright -orange sweet and sour pork with white-rice crowd. We had broccoli with beef and the beef was as tough as leather - not chewable! Drenched in soy sauce, every dish was a... More

Tiny restaurant in a great location. Affordable and decent Chinese food. Just a convenient place for people living nearby.

I can always count on the quality of the food and the promptness of the service. This place has been around for years and is a real staple of the neighborhood

Had the simple chicken with asparagus and egg drop soup -- all good. The brown rice wasn't great, but the rest of the stuff (fried rice, fried dumplings) was really good. Prices reasonable!

I have eaten at the Cottage Inn many times. It is a popular neighborhood restaurant with good food at reasonable prices.

Years ago, there were a number of Cottage Restaurants, This number has dwindled. I've eaten at a number of them (most of those are gone now). This particular establishment was one of the first I ever visited over twenty years ago…and I still go back when I would like a tasty meal at a very fair price. The service is... More

Travel to NYC, often. The Cottage is close to where our daughter lives, eaten here a lot. The dumplings are very tasty and one of our favorites, along with the fried rice. The food is above average and Rating the food on cost it is a bargain.

We had lunch there in a Saturday. Attracted by the outside lunch special menu, but leaned later than they don't offer lunch specials in Saturdays. That was okay, and we ordered some entries. One big complaint was that the vegetables were not washed thoroughly: we tasted sand in the dish. They also included a 20% service charge in the check.... More
