I love Cottage. I ordered through Grubhub with no issues. Delivery guy does not wait for you to retrieve your food from the lobby though. He just left it with security since i had already tipped. If you want food delivered to your door - give a cash tip, they'll come up stairs for their money.

When i've dined in - i had a few different experiences. First two times were great. Third time the guy was rude and refused to give us the free wine. He said he would only allow my table to receive it IF we ordered another entree . Pretty annoying.

However, this food is amazing. I solely some here for that and now order through grubhub instead. Its better and you dont have to deal with the BLAH waiters.

Best dish is the Scallops with Walnuts! Big Sea Scallops, full walnuts for a great price. Order came early and also had all my little requests met: Brown rice, extra yellow hot mustard.

The food was absolutely better than I expected it to be. They were quick and had my food ready when I got there and the price was amazing.

This place is awesome, the food is always fresh and my delivery is usually way earlier than the window Grubhub gives me!

Delivery was about 5 or 6 blocks and we got our food within 20 minutes. We've ordered many different things (lo mein, beef with broccoli, soups, pepper steak, etc.) and it's consistently been really good! I like it because it's delicious, reasonably priced, fast, and it seems to be far less oily than most places in the area! I recommend it if you're in the union square area :)

Best. Chinese. Food. I won't order from anyplace else if I am in the East Village. I've ordered frequently from here after trying a whole bunch of other places and the are amazing. Great dumplings, sesame noodles. Best egg rolls. and their chicken with broccoli is on point. Plus they are on time and one time I had to change something in my order and they got that right too.

Chinese food here is always good & reliable. This time though, the egg rolls were a little doughy, as they hadn't been fried kong enough, so the inside layers of dough weren't cooked thoroughly enough. A little hard to chew... Othrr food was great though. Guess the regular, more experienced egg roll frier was off tonight...

This was the most efficient Chinese takeout Ive ever had... packed perfectly with utensils, sauces, fortune cookie, and separate small containers for the food itself. Plus, the food was delicious!

This is the best American Chinese food in the city. They take out the peas in my fried rice. The portion is huge. Price is reasonable and delivery is fast. I wont ever order from anywhere else.
