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.

Diner Reviews
  • "This restaurant is a nice find in midtown Manhattan. The food is fresh, well prepared and not your typical fare. The portions are small so for a group of 4 or more you will need at least 6 dishes. The restaurant also subsidizes half of the parking if you use the garage directly across the street. Nice touch."

  • "This was our third trip to New York and the China Grill will forever be a must stop. The service, food, and experience is outstanding. We tried everything from Martinis to desert and nothing disappointed. We recommend the lobster pancakes and drunken chicken. Divine! Don't forget the Great Wall for desert."

  • "Are here this week after not being there for a year. After waiting too long to place our order service ended up being excellent. What was really disappointing was the good. The calamari salad appetizer had an odd taste to it, as did the grilled shrimp. Worse yet nothing was served hot. Best case food items were served warm. The place wasn't busy at all as this was an early dinner before a Broadway show. Dessert seemed to have been prepared in a factory far away. Overall the meal reminded me of eating at a large chain like Houlihans. Nothing was terrible but certainly not worth the money spent."

  • "This was a bizarre night at China Grill. We made a reservation through Open Table and upon check in, we found out that our only option was sitting outside (sidewalk seating) or at the bar. What is the point on accepting reservations if you can't have a decent table? We sat by the bar, and were left there unattended for the rest of the night. The hostess took our order, after we complained, another guy asked what we wanted to drink and he had no idea what an Arnold Palmer was. The food was decent but the service was a joke for a restaurant that used to be a hot spot and now works more like a low end fast food joint. Never going back!"

  • "It's a shame that it is impossible to dine at this beautiful restaurant because you literally cannot have a conversation. I was exhausted after having to scream across the table to my guests because of the noise level. Put some acoustics in, please"
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "Food was delicious, BUT the portions were small and very pricey!"
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "You can eat at the bar from the main menu or a $7 small bites menu. We tried both. Calamari and lobster dumplings were great. Miso cod for entree was super. Great staff friendly"
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "acoustics were not good - too much surrounding noise and that does not mean energetic on the rating scale but that is the only choice that means loud"
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "Beautiful, handsome, stylish, and comfortable atmosphere inside or out. Recommend: Caesar salad, Grilled garlic shrimp. Service was excellent. Bento box which is served at the bar looked like a great quick lunchtime option. Special thanks to the hostess who made every effort to welcome me and my guest."

  • "I've been eating at China Grill for 15 years. Consistently terrific food - the lamb riblets are the best in NYC, and the spicy dumplings are perfect! When the weather is good, the outside tables are delightful."

  • "We visited China Grill (& New York) for my birthday - it had been a few years since we ate there. Food was absolutely fantastic - lobster pancakes to die for, and beautiful shrimp with fettuccine!! Service was super at the start - with Tom Dolan, a true professional - but it was a bit patchy after he finished his shift! Great ambience at the front of the restaurant while we were placed at a very quiet spot at the back (is this normal treatment for non locals?) "

  • "My husband and I had an amazing dining experience at the China Grill in New York. We had a fabulous table, perfect service, enjoyed the tasting menu and people watched! The tasting menu portions were very generous and were a good variety of flavours and China Grill favourites. Thanks China Grill, we'll be back."

  • "Menu is misleading, they do not have items they specified on the menu. The cheapest wine is starting from $50 price tag, but do not expect they are better wine cost $9.99. Do not go there unless do not have any other place to go."

  • "It may have just been the luck of the draw (not in our favor) the last time we dined here. The waitress was not attentive at all, we actually had to have bus person find her because she left us hanging for so long. As always though the food was excellent, very flavorful. The drinks were alsoto die for. "

  • "We went for my fiancé's birthday because it was where I asked her to be my girlfriend. It was a pleasant surprise and brings back fond memories. The food, derive, and vibe was great as always. I don't really see it that great for kids or old folks though; it's dark, chic, and loud, more for people in their 20s or 30s. "

  • "We went to China Grill as a group of 8 and had the tasting menu which I would really recommend. Service was great and the food was delicious. Large portions so you will not leave hungry. Another great thing was that drinks such as wine, prosecco and a number of beers and cocktails were only $7 all night at the bar. Will definitely be back "

  • "I love this place. We came here for a late lunch. They were so accommodating and when they saw that we had brought our three month old child with us, they sat us by the window up front and at a table meant for 6 guests so we had more space! I was able to breastfeed and change a dirty diaper during the meal. Even more convenient is the parking garage across the street so you can leave the stroller in the car. Food was the same as always but the calamari salad has gotten a lot better. "

  • "Went to China Grill for a special occasion and loved the appetizers. Would go back for appetizers alone. And if you want to be wowed by dessert, try the great wall dessert, enough for 4-6 people."

  • "I took my mother day for early dinner b/c it has been always solid food. But, unfortunately, the service kept rushing us. The environment gets very bustling after work and later on, more bustlier. And being asked by servers in SUCCESSION, if we are finished when I still have my fork is beyond rude. It interrupts the conversation, we felt rushed and in an environment that is already bustling just adds to the negativeness. I was hoping to relax a bit, catch up and avoid the too late dinner and we felt rushed. My mom was feeling rushed. Servers should come by to see how the diners are doing, but they need to gauage the table. "

  • "The service was amazing. Food was delish. Will recommend it to friends and family. First was seated next to a big party with lots of children. Was a bit noisy but was relocated after we requested the change. Our water was top notch. My seared tuna was out of this world. Loved it! "
