    not polite

    I love Chinese food and eat it almost everyday (am not chinese, though).The food was OK and I wouldn't mind going there again but the staff was very rude.There are three different menus to pick from but God Forbid they would tell you the differnece. And of course no thanks after a generous 15% tip. Whatever happened to focus on customer service?????????

    What else could you want?

    This reviewers below me couldn't be more wrong. Cottage has delicious food, and although the service is rude, I don't really expect 5 star ambiance in a chinese restaurant. The value is fantastic, and it's one of the last great restaurant style Chinese spots that doesn't water down it's menu with sushi and Thai food. Solid Chow Fun, too.

    Love the food

    Good basic Chinese with just enough variation on the menu to elevate it above the same old thing. The food I have had from there has been great. I am happy if my water glass is kept full and I am served quickly- all happened here.

    Great Chinese in Gramercy Park

    I dont know what the last 2 reviewers are complaining about, but this is our favorite spot for casual chinese. It is a warm atmosphere inside, always seating available and the food comes quick. We have always found the food to be good quality, steaming and nice size portions. The waiters do their jobs nicely, but they are not falling over you like you are dining at Le Cirque. their prices went up by a dollar or so, but overall good price and quality.

    Not recommended

    I live around the corner from this restaurant and have been eating here for at least 20 years. All I can say is that it has certainly gone downhill in the last year or so. Tonight was probably the last time I will ever eat here. Our order came cold very cold. We complained, and they took it back to the kitchen and must have zapped it in the microwave. It arrived back on the table hot but dried out and inedible. We weren't about to eat or pay for it. The manager came over, we asked to order something else, and he said ok. The dish we ordered was something we've had in the past. I am unable to eat spicy foods, and this one was not starred as spicy. Well, the chef definitely spiced up the food. In addition, they left the small plates with the original cold food on them on the table and made no effort to bring us clean plates. Did they expect us to put the new order on top of the cold food? I think this restaurant may be under new management.

    scratch this one off the list

    Sweet and simple review: scratch this one off the list! The food is average, the service is ridiculously poor. My meal was supposed to be crispy but came out quite soggy. They gave us our check 3 minutes after placing our meals on the table. We didn't look at it since we were still eating, so they came back 5 minutes later and said "pay now". Stunned, we paid and continued eating. They started to close the place down, we weren't finished our food and drinks yet, and they came over to us and said "are you going to leave now?". Incredibly rude! There were still other people in the place too (although it looked like they were trying to push them out of the door too). Next time: go to China town.

    I love their food!

    The prices are excellent, lunch specials great, and delivery is fast. The service in the restaurant cannot be beat. They have great dinner and wine specials and also good dinner for 2 specials.
