I read the review of this institution on the Upper West Side. I was really in the mood for Chinese. Was I disappointed. I had the Pork Chow Fun. The Pork was not roasted, as it should have been, but boiled. No taste and tough. My wife had the lunch of pork and Chinese vegetables. Again boiled pork. They say... More

Went here tonight. Started off fine with hot and sour soup and hot spicy dumplings. Free white wine is a nice plus. My main course was a huge disaster. I ordered chicken with walnuts in a brown sauce. The dish contents was 70 % tiny carrot cubes 15 % chicken cubes and 15% walnuts. I left over the dish of... More

I have eaten here three times. The food is always very good and VERY AFFORDABLE FOR NYC! On my most recent visit, I sampled the Szechuan (sorry about the spelling!) dumplings. All I can say is OMG, and save the sauce on the little plate for your rice. This is the stuff food dreams are made of. Seriously. Or food... More

The dumplings with hot oil was a delicious start to the meal, but we still prefer Joe's Shanghai. We ordered chicken and broccoli (OK), chow fun with chicken (very good), and crispy prawns with walnuts (large shrimp and plentiful).

My girlfriend lives close by, and so on a very cold Sunday evening we ventured out and stood in the queue for 10 minutes, watching the steaming hot dishes come from the kitchen, finally it was our turn, my girlfriend was like I'll have what they are having...The shallot pancakes were amazing, the little carafe of wine unexpected, the food...

So when you eat at a restaurant a lot because you really enjoy it you usually have a short list of favorites from which you always reorder. At the cottage we are always trying to order differently from what we ordinarily eat. But each time we stray from our regular "moo shoos" and "soups" and "dumplings" we find another fabulous...

I lived in the neighborhood for over 35 years, and The Cottage was one of my staples. I still dream about their szechuan dumplings in hot oil, their cold sesame noodles, and their hot and sour soup, and make sure to load up on all three whenever I'm back in town. I never much cared for dining in the restaurant... More

This was a fun atmosphere. The good was pretty good. And if you order $10+ per person, you get unlimited wine-granted it is cheap, Box wine. But it was. Fun relatively inexpensive dinner for a group of people. I would definitely go back.

The service was quick, friendly and overall great. Food not so great, beef was really fatty and salty. Would not order again but prices really cheap for the area

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
