    We will miss dearly our beloved China grill in Miami Beach, but we will always be going to their new restaurant in Brickell and Ft. Lauderdale, Martin is a wonderful Manager and always keeps a smile no matter how hectic it is.

    We thought it would be a good idea to stop in before it moved to Brickell. We were served by Bradford, which was a very charming and friendly server. He wasn't pushy and helped us select our menu without overdoing it. We had been there several times before and by far this was the best service ever.

    We frequent China Grill once or twice a year when in Miami and always bring friends along. It was so quiet this time, with very few people, which was odd. The food was only so-so this time and the waiter was pushy and quite annoying. Fried spinach was greasy this time and not that crispy. Overall, it was just ok. Next time, we will go elsewhere. Turns out Lincoln Road was alive!!! We ate in that area for the next two nights.

    Generally all food and drink was very good with the exception of the tuna tempura sashimi which was tasteless and the duck two ways which was a little boring. Prices were way too high. With appetizer, main and desert came to $100 per person.

    One of the worst restauarant I have ever dined at. The service was horrible, the hostess did not really want to seat us in an empty restaurant. Food was full of salt, and one of the main dishes arrived after we were finished eating. The manager did not seem to care. For a $250+ dinner, could not have had a worse experience.

    The food was very good, however be prepared to be oversold on how much you should look to order... Stick with your instincts. We were traveling with no refirdgerator in our hotel, so a lot of food (that was not cheap) went to waste. Check your bill as well, the staff jumped to our assistance to remove the item, but someone else's $60 bottle of sake had been listed with our table.

    When I was planning to go to China Grill I thought that I will do the reservation to just try another good restaurant in Miami, since everyone always talks about it. After I had my experience I recommended this restaurant eyes closed. From the apetizer to the desert everything was GREAT!!!! I highly recommended and had a great time with my WIFE.

    The food is excellent. Yes, it's expensive, but worth it for what you get. We went with a group of 10 and it ended up being $60 a person with 2-3 rounds of cocktails each, several appetizers & half dishes we shared as a group plus several desserts we shared as a group. Service could be a little better, but honestly there were no major disappointments and we were always taken care of. Also, plan to be there for awhile - this isn't a quick dinner - I think we were there for 2.5 hours. Please be advised that there dessert portions are GINORMOUS. Like RIDICULOUSLY HUGE. Larger than their dinner portions! (Although, we did get half portions of entrees as we were all sharing and I saw some whole portions that we HUGE.) All in all, SUPERB!

    This restaurant is way overpriced for the quality of food it serves. The appetizers were rather ordinary tasting- certainly nothing special . The entree of drunken chicken was good, but I would definitely NOT recommend the grilled salmon. The noise level makes it very difficult to converse with others at the table. I would much rather spend my hard-earned money on quality food; very disappointing experience overall. The staff there needs to be better trained in how to treat its customers.

    I remember China Grill's amazing food from the 90's and it was such a disappointment to eat there this week. We started with the Tempura tuna sashimi and pork belly with avocado purée. Both lacked flavour, the tuna would have needed something sour to go with it and the pork should have been caramelized. As the main course we took the duck in two ways with the crispy spinach on the side. All was too heavy without any accent in the taste. Not what I call fusion kitchen. The whole ambience felt like being in Planet Hollywood! The bill including one bottle of wine and two cocktails was 330 usd and it was not worth it. We felt stuffed with heavy tasteless food!

    Always a pleasant event. On the highend side for prices but the smaller portion option is a help. For the nature of the place I should not have to ask to have a water glass refilled. HOwever with that small complaint we always enjoy our meal. The salmon was one of the best I have had in a very long time. We will be back!

    I have been to this restaurant several times. The menu is eclectic, and the food and service was exceptional on previous visits, admittedly a year ago. As a result, I recommended to my group of friends that we dine here Saturday night. Nothing really bad to say, it was a fun evening, but this place is very expensive and I did not think that the quality or quantity of the food or the service lived up to my prior visits. Portions were smaller, dishes seemed more bland, and presentations were nice but not exceptional. Service was very spotty. Several times we had to look around and flag our waiter or ask a bus person to find our waiter. We all had fun, and I might go back, but I think they are losing their polish.

    China Grill was highly recommended and the food came through. The service was horrible. Our reservations where made 2 weeks in advance for 4 at 9pm. We were seated at 9:30, at 9:45 we had to ask for water because no one had come to check on us. The waiter, Felipe dragged his feet, so I told him to get it going, we were ready to order. He not once asked us how any of our courses where. Three of us received our dinner and one was left to wait another 15 minutes for her shrimp. When she asked the waiter, he simply said, "it's coming" and walked away. No apologies and no "let me check on that for you". At the end, we wanted dessert and he looked at us and kept walking and sent the bus boy. Nice Service CG. I will never go back!!!!
