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.

    Party of five having a Birthday Celebration in advance of attending the 8pm performance of Cabaret. Our lead food server was Kevin and he was most impressive. We chose not to order from the 3-course menu option and instead enjoyed a very wide variety of the offerings. I could not have been more pleased and as a Limousine operator of 30 years based in Philadelphia it will be my pleasure to suggest this eatery.

    I had eaten here for lunch during restaurant week and decided to bring our out of town guests for dinner and it was excellent. We had the tasting menu which was fabulous. My cousin thought dinner was complete after all the appetizers came out but there was plenty more. The service was great. Fan knew we had theater tickets and were running a bit late so she made sure our food came out on a timely basis. I would recommend it highly!!!!

    I had a perky enough waitress but then she became overwhelmed with other customers and I barely saw her. I ordered the lobster pancake and as I began to take the first bite, noticed a hair in my food. It took a few minutes to get someone's attention and later the manager came over to apologize. I was served another one and it was fair. Not enough sauce. Calamari salad was way too much for a single person and I should have been advised as to the portion size because after the lobster pancake, I could not eat more than a couple of bites. I had thought due to the poor service, hair in food that I would be at least comped for my glass of wine but received nothing. I had to chase the server down to get my check. Poor experience.

    Service started out bad. Our original waiter never came and another waiter started to help us. He apologized, acknowledged our presence, and everything got better from there. Food was awesome. The wasabi mashed potatoes are heavenly. Food was sooo good.

    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.

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.
