Bakery with a reputation for quality, didn't disappoint. Indoor dining available in the 'garden' in the back, self-service. We ordered and were told to take our seat while our drinks were prepared... but there was no way to let us know they were ready. We had to go back for them and were ignored while server was attending to new take-out orders. Not nice. But were tasty.

I remember when there were lines around the block for Dominique Ansel.

As a New York resident, I don’t fall into the hype when it comes to things like this. I believe that Dominique Ansel is great for tourists, but New Yorkers know better. Unfortunately, I had to come in today to pick up the final piece of a present.

After waiting for 5 minutes (and being side eyed by the woman behind the counter), I was finally helped. There were no pleasantries or anything. Best of all, there was no one else waiting other than me and two delivery people (who were already helped).

The baked goods are delicious and satisfying - the customer service is not. I sincerely wish you the best as many other restaurants have closed during the COVID-19 pandemic!

We came in pursuit of the famous Cronut and keep returning because all of Dominique Ansel's other pastries are uniquely delicious! Cronuts sell out early (try and get there before 1PM), so don't be disappointed if you have to "settle" for a DKA or chocolate-coconut croissant because all of Ansel's creations are delicious! Cronut flavours change monthly, never repeat, and are always worth the wait. Your tastebuds will thank you for taking a leap of faith on the innovative flavour combinations. August's flavour of the month was fig and orange blossom while September's is pumpkin and rice pudding. The Cronut perfects the balance between crispy sugared exteriors and light, creamy fillings. We don't leave without at least four DKAs in tow, and our friends request them every trip we take into NYC! Heat the DKAs in the oven when you get home for 5-10 minutes for a flaky, buttery, warm breakfast that is heavenly. They are much more delicious than their ordinary, muffin-like appearance. For the perfect lunch, try the ham and cheese croissant, but make sure to ask the staff to heat it for you so it's warm and crispy. If you're lucky enough to score a Cronut, enjoy it with Ansel's cold brew coffee. If you miss out on Cronuts for the day, treat yourself to equally delicious DKAs!

100% a must do if you go to New York DO NOT SKIP THIS cronut EXPERIENCE you WILL missing out! #1 donuts will be ruined for the rest of your life. #2 the flavor changes every month so it will not repeat. #3 if you fail to heed my words you will die a sad sad human beings. BEST BAKEY ITEM I HAVE EVER HAD in my life! (Been on the planet go 15,098 days... just saying #experience)

Be on time... go for the Cronut... third visit... no more cronuts that day. But plenty of other choices to make a visit. If you like desserts, this is the place to be.
