A word from China Grill - New York
China Grill provides a globe-spanning culinary adventure in a spectacular setting. While Asian flavors and techniques are an influence, the menu is labeled as “world cuisine” with virtually every dish being prepared on either grills or in woks using ingredients gathered from pantries around the globe. Portions are generous, dramatically presented, and meant to be shared family style. Spectacular architectural settings, including an exhibition kitchen in the center of the restaurant are also part of the China Grill magic, creating a place to see and be seen.

    I have been here many times in the past year and the food is fantastic. Try the short ribs (best ever) and the shrimp with black pasta. We ONLY ordered 2 entrees and one side vegetable dish and yet we were served the first entree a full 10-15 minutes before the second entree and vegetable side. NO excuse for this, especially since the restaurant was virtually empty other than the bar. I even asked where the second entree when the second entree was going to be served and was told "right away." It wasn't!

    We had eaten many times at China Grill in Las Vegas and we loved it. We would always have the spicy Asian Cesar salad and the glazed lamb ribs. The same meal in New York was more than disappointing. Salad had little to no flavour and the ribs were very fatty the rice was cold, had it replaced 3 times and the grilled beef $46.00. Was dried out sirloin. That is the end of china grill for us. The service was poor

    Very average restaurant in a busy area. Lamb Spare Ribs - Nothing special Beef Dumplings- Average Skirt Steak- I tried my friends portion and it was the best tasting of all dishes Szechuan Beef- One of the most expensive dishes on the menu, and it wasn't that good Duck Fried Rice- Tasted fine, but no better/different than a neighborhood hole in the wall Chinese place, just with duck Crispy Spinach- All the other dishes had stronger flavors, so we couldn't taste the spinach, it tasted like bland potato chips Wasabi Mashed Potatoes - Average mashed potatoes, with wasabi flavor Hazelnut Torte- Probably the least fresh tasting cake I've had in a long time Bananas in a Box- I expected warm bananas, but it was very cold, didn't care for it.

    One of my favorite restaurants. The night i went there, the tasting menu wasnt being served but the chef madean exception. It was GREATLY appreciated and delicious as always. Wine pairing selection was on point as well. Bananas in a box will always have a place in my heart (and my stomach) along with the lobster pancakes.

    Five of us went to lunch. We chose Spicy beef and scallion dumplings x 2, Crackling calamari salad x 2 and one order of curried chicken satay, family style.The calamari salad was out of this world, very unusual. We each ordered a main dish, I had the salmon which was slightly underdone even though I had asked for it well done. My fellow diners had the skirt steak x 2, another had salmon and the fifth had the chicken which was a huge portion. Our portions were adequate. For the sides we were allowed to order 3 sides, we had the wasabi mashed potatoes, wok sauteed vegetables and crispy spinach for which we had to pay extra but it was worth it. The service was quick. The dessert was disappointing as we didn't get 5 portions of Hazelnut torte.

    I've been going to China Grill since the '80s and it never disappoints. Large family style portions encourage the group to share in typical Asian style. The crispy spinach is a must! This restaurant is one of the first in NYC to serve Asian fusion cuisine and to have an open kitchen. Still is the best!

    I've been coming to China a Grill for 30 years. My kids grew up coming here so they always want to revisit. The food was happily just as wonderful as always. Funny how the Confucius chicken never changes. Unfortunately, our waiter wasn't very attentive and seemed to be focused on another table. Overall, we had a good night just not amazing!

If you are seeing an 8 p.m. show, definitely get reservations for 6 p.m. or earlier if you want to do the tasting menu (which I would strongly recommend). Will go back very soon.

    This lace is very spacious and interior design is soothing and tranquil, especially for a hot summer day. Portion of the food was generous, and waiter was very knowledgeable and professional. Chicken satay was crispy outside and tender inside and delicious. Dumplings were gracefully presented with ample sauces.The main courses were also very good. Salmon was baked just right and taste of drunken chicken was well balanced. Would come again.
