We visited this location after a morning at the National Museum of Mathematics. It has lots of seating and clean bathrooms. We arrived around 12:30 on a Wednesday and had no wait for a table. We had the shirodashi pork ramen, chicken ramen, wagamama ramen, yaki soba, steamed dumplings and pork buns. The pork belly ramen and the wagamama ramen were very good but the chicken breast on the chicken ramen was very dry and hard to finish. The noodles and broth were good but the chicken was disappointing.

On arrival we were seated quickly and given the usual friendly Wagamamas welcome at this busy, lively restaurant.

Our waiter was superb and the orders came out fast.

Chicken was quite hard in our 3 Ramens maybe over cooked a bit.

Cocktails were very nice as were the starters we ordered.

My husband nor I had every been to a Wagamama, but the Tripadvisor reviews looked promising so we visited for lunch on a Monday in the Flatiron district. Our waiter was superb. He was very kind explaining everything to us since it was our first visit. The food was delicious. I highly recommend their fresh pressed juices. They were delicious! We loved our meals and I would definitely visit again. It was a great experience and I am grateful for the excellent customer service. If you haven't had Ramen before, its okay to slurp and its also okay to eat the broth from the large wooden spoon they give you. Those were my two concerns when trying to eat with couth. It was freeing to know its okay to be a bit of a mess when eating there.

Very good restaurant where you can get excellent dishes for reasonable prices. Many vegan and vegetarian options on the menu. Nice service. Go early to get one of the single tables if you don't like to sit close to strangers at a large table. Reservation in advance to avoid long waiting time is recommended.

Ordered 2 dishes - chicken Teriyaki and Katsu curry with vegetables - both excellent! Plenty of food at great prices - also ordered ice coffee which was surprisingly good too. Service was great - we'll be back
