Love this place, the pork buns are insane, atmosphere is great but they NEED to start taking reservations. Went last night and the wait for 3 people was 2 1/2 hours and a lot of people were actually waiting. Ended up going to City Crab, which was fine. Please take resi's or expand!

This is hands down the best ramen you'll get in NYC. People rave about this place and I didn't get it until I went. I've always thought that ramen is the same everywhere, but Ippudo is in a class all their own. The noodles are amazing, the broth is heaven, and even the sides like the pork buns are fantastic. Unfortunately the wait just to get a table is sick. I've never waited less than 40 minues. My wife and I thought we'd be smart and beat the wait by getting there early. We showed up at 6:30pm and there was a 1.5 hour wait. We went to a yakitori place on St. Marks instead. I got my ramen, it was good, but not Ippudo good. but then nothing is worth waiting 90 minutes for.

I haven't tasted such good ramen noodles since I came to the United States, the pork bones soup base was very rich and tasty. Ramen noodles are very fine and cooked just right. Although there was a wait, while we were waiting, I saw people chilling at the bar drinking beer and sake or having snacks. So it's really not that bad if you know that the food was that good. Service was great, the waitress was very attentive and kept filling up the water for us. Reasonable Price for lunch, $12-15.. Decorations inside was cool, I would say it's pretty upscale and up-to-date. There're definitely more in the menu, but Ramen is what it is famous for in this restaurant!

Ate there Friday night, and wanted those noodles again for breakfast on Saturday. Monday morning and I'm still thinking about them. Enough said.

If you crave incredibly delicious and authentic ramen in NYC, Ippudo is the place to be. It take s a while to get in if you come after 6PM, so be prepared to wait and mingle with the ever increasing crowd in the small vestibule area. However, it's usually not more than a 1/2 hour for a party of 2-4 and it's well worth the wait. Don't leave without having Hirata Buns.

The pork buns are to die for and the ramen I had was good, but was it worth waiting nearly two hours for.....no! The staff was wonderful and pleasant, but the same can be said for numerous other restaurants that take reservations and don't make you wait an hour and a half for a table. The atmosphere was nice, but it didn't make us forget that we had to wait two hours for a table. The worst part is we were done eating in half an hour! How are people waiting so long for tables, when turnover between patrons is so quick?! The food is good, but I don't plan on going back anytime soon.....unless they start taking reservations.
