    Really disappointing

    I live in the neighborhood, but recently ate here for the first time. It will be the last. The food was acceptable, not awful but not particularly interesting either. The atmosphere? WHAT atmosphere? The service was dreadful (the place was not particularly crowded or busy), with some of the orders for our party of five confused or forgotten. There are many West Side restaurants worth a visit; this isn't one of them.

    I have been ordering from cottage for over thirty years. The food was never great, but today was the poorest. I shall not order from here again.

    Not Bad

    my 5yr old and i ate there on a busy sunday afternoon/evening. very friendly staff. they were very busy however, and the service suffered. the food was slow to arrive (2 different dumplings appetizers and sesame beef + rice). BUT when the food did eventually come, it was hot, super tasty, and well prepared. i highly recommend the szechuan dumplings in hot oil. i first had them there 15 years ago and the only change is an improvement in that they are now served in a bowl rather than a plate. they are super delicious.

    No complaints

    I have never eaten at the cottage, but I live nearby and order from there at least once a week. The food is always good, prices are good (and better than other Chinese restaurants nearby). The food typically comes in about 15 minutes and it is hot and thouroughly cooked. I don't think it's ever taken more than 20 minutes. 0 for atmosphere only because I've never been there.

    Tasteless and bland

    Sunday 12-25-11 Daytime lunch 1 p.m. from the dinner menu 3 persons. Combined Chinese eating out experience of over 100 years. Ordered: 3 soups Wonton- very clear 3 small wontons- no taste Hot & sour- tasteless compared to other places Wonton eggdrop- see wonton 3 plates- shrimp, pork, chicken Chow fun with shrimp- very few shrimp, noodles so-so, no flavor or taste. Moo shu pork w 2 pankcakes [ordered an extra]- again little or no taste and very little pork. Pancake size and texture good. Chicken with mixed vegetables- nice ample slices of white meat chicken, Not much of a variety of mixed vegetables. Tasteless and no sauce to use with the white rice supplied. All agreed food tasted very bland. We should have asked for Soy sauce. We did get a carafe of white box wine. It helps to have the wine given the above. Total with tax $36. Service was attentive and we did not have to rush given the day and time. Living on the UWS we find fewer Chinese places that are consistently good. Too bad!!

    not recommended

    i ate here once and it was decent, i wanted to go back a second time and there was a wait, i was fine waiting for a table however no one ever told me how long or asked me if i was waiting. i stood there for 5 minutes asking person after person and getting denied an answer from anyone, almost as if i was invisible, i finally left and will not give them my money again.
