    The product quality varies. The store layout is a nightmarish maze, which I can only imagine is the Swedish concept for purgatory.

    Great deals for day to day stuff. The cafeteria is a huge let down tho. The quality of food and drinks as well as employees service is very bad and it is disappointing how bad it has become.

    I love Ikea but the maze and the crazy shoppers make the experience very stressful. At least the staff is courteous and the food is good. More servers behind the hot food would be so, so helpful!

    Buy your furniture here when you move into an apartment. It will be cheap but may not last as long as you'd like.

    Don't ever say that you like it. There is nothing to be liked, not the cheap furniture or the ice cream or the hide and seek games. Just stay away if you want to survive

    Incredibly slow service, huge lines at the understaffed cafeteria, long furniture pickup waiting time. Also, IKEA, please add mayo to condiments downstairs for hot dogs ;)

    Still one of the only places to get affordable furniture in this city, although you have to run the gauntlet that is Ikea. Don't get anything delivered, just use a cab service.

    Worst customer experience ever! Took two weeks to deliver my furniture. Eventually had to go and pick it up myself after waiting three hours. I guess you get what you pay for. Never again IKEA. NEVER!

    The good: Swedish meatballs, chocolate cake, elderflower juicebox, the free shuttle that goes from the store to the F/G at Smith & 9th. The bad: always terribly crowded; prepare to queue endlessly.

    Ikea stocks somewhat inexpensive furniture. The cafe serves meatballs where you can also enjoy the scenic views.

    Although in Brooklyn, there is a free Water Taxi on weekends from the Wall St. Pier. Check the Brooklyn store directions (on their website) for more information!

    Weekends are the worst here because for some reason, an influx of customers does not warrant opening any extra lanes at checkout.

    ALWAYS packed and products are often sold out (esp. things like individual shelves, curtain rods, etc.) when they open on a weekday is best. do NOT take the cars there - calling a cab saved me ⅔ cost.

    Hope to god the furniture you want is available in self service. If you need to go through the furniture pickup zone after paying, brace yourself for an hour or two of thumbtwiddling.
