We had a nice meal with appetizers and four shared entrees.The service was good and I liked the dining room (probably once the parlor of a private home.) It was pricey.
The restaurant was highly ranked as a Sichuan restaurant by the Village Voice and although the food was good and service was pleasant, I thought it was a little over-rated. Most of the food on the menu you can find in any Chinese restaurant and although the meal was good and portion sizes were fair, the food is cheaper in... More
We ordered braised fish fillet and pea shoots, we ended up paying $59 before tip. First of all, fillet wasn't even close to the best that I've had, I think it's $26 vs. $16 at Han or Grand Sichuan, which has much better fish. Pea shoots cost $23? come one, that's high way robbery. I am never going back to... More
I've been a few times at Wu Liang Ye over the years, usually for lunch. Food was always good and service efficient although neither welcoming or friendly. Last night we had dinner and the experience was just awful. First of all, the head waiter who took the order shouldn't assume that only Chinese speak Chinese and his loud, derisive comment... More
Went there for dinner. Very authentic Sichuang food. We really liked it. However, the drink was pretty expensive and the waitor was not friendly at all. He did not want to sit us down until all of us showed up. Had to wait at the reception area.
On a visit with friends, we wanted to get Chinese but needed to stay close to our midtown hotel. Wu Liang Ye was just perfect! All of us enjoyed our choices, but everyone agreed the tangerine chicken was the best! Service was very quick (perhaps a little too quick) and certainly not friendly but none of that mattered as the... More
Old School chinese restaurants have a general worldwide reputation of rude / fast service and suspect interior furniture but you come for the food- one typically looks beyond the service and interiors and comes to eat, and I must say I have always found this combination all part of the culinary experience. Wu Liang Ye had good service by elderly... More
This is one of several restaurants around the world operated by the Sichuan provincial government. It's housed in a decaying but atmospheric town home next door to a pawn shop and staffed by waiters who don't appear to be all that interested in earning tips--i.e. they disappear for long stretches and rarely smile. But, wow, the food is fantastic, especially... More
Service is efficient (fast but we got no smiles), but don't let that stop you from trying the food. Both our dishes were spectacular. We are actually raving about a rice dish, odd, its just rice, but we can't stop talking about the flavor. Our chicken dish was mouth watering. If we go back to NY, we will eat here... More
Very very rude service & average food. Never again. We ordered the chicken which was dry & chewy. The fish was average. Portions were large enough. But the staff was terrible. The beer was warm.
