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

We were very disappointed with the bland taste of both dishes and soups. I had hot and sour my wife had won ton soup. We had to add our own seasoning to make the soup edible. The main courses were sesame shrimp and double sautéed pork. Both were very bland and tasteless. We get better Chinese food at home in... More

This place has been around for years and as a sign of how popular it is local upper West Siders bring their parents or children here regularly for predictable Chinese fare. Delivery business covers the neighborhood, but most of us who live here like to visit in person. Peter, the owner, never got a liquor license so he could serve... More

Husband had the seasons beef and I had the shrimp. Sauce was very tasty. Husband asked to hold the chili's but they also held it on mine and I would've love a bit more spice.

The food and service were excellent! The portion sizes were ample. Perfect for dinner after a day at the American Natural History Museum.

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
