Great for take-out or super fast delivery!

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... read more

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...

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!

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.
