    This place gets great reviews, but I was really disappointed. Very cool ambiance, but the food was lukewarm, rubbery and not interesting. I've lived in China for 9 years, so I know a bit about Chinese food. The server was chirpy and nice, but came by too many times and each time completely interrupted our conversation to say "Wo how is everything?". This place is VERY expensive, so I was surprised by the low level of food quality and service. Won't be going back.

    We came in 15 Min. early. It seems to be the policy to let the people wait to take a drink at the bar, even they have many tables ready. The service is professionell but not very friendly and the following of the courses are quick. Food is excellent, good wineselection but a little too expensive.

    My guest drink of choice was BLACK LABEL Johnny Walker. A very basic drink. The severed him one shot , and ran out of it. To make it worse, we order 3 main courses. They all came out 15 mins apart from each other. And the dish recommended by he server, turn out to be the worst of all.; funny enough it was the first one served to us. NEVER TO GO BACK!!!

    I'm guessing we had a fairly new waiter. We were given the wrong cocktails, one of our 2 appetizers was forgotten about & one of our entrees was incorrect, too! Even so, everything was fixed quickly & professionally and our food and drinks were excellent. We're willing to chalk the service glitches up to an off night. We'll definitely be back. The food is so good!

    This is my third time at Hakkasan since they opened a couple of years ago. The first time we visited the experience wasn't great and felt it wasn't worth the price. The last visit however seemed to change that opinion. Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious. Maybe wee ordered better as well but everyone really enjoyed every bit of it. Our server was also extremely helpful and friendly which definitely helped.

    Dined on 10/1/2014
    1st October was the 65th anniversary of the Founding of the People's Republic of China and Hakkasan organized a special celebratory dinner, beginning with excellent dim sum and Peking Duck pancakes through a variety of main entrees and ending with hot steamed dumplings with chocolate sauce and ginger tea. The meal ended with a gift of chocolate-coated macaroons with gold-dust topping. At US$138 the meal would not have been for everyone, but it was absolutely top quality and well worth the cost. We understand that all of the restaurants Hakkasan has around the world were serving this same menu for a two-week period. It was quite magical.

    Excellent food, which is served as it's ready, not in standard course order, and meant to be shared. Perfect service--our server reminded US that we might want the check to make the theater in time! Food is somewhat familiar but never exactly what you've had before--top notch ingredients prepared thoughtfully. I can't wait to go back!

    The food, as always was delicious but the service was bad. We were left sitting at the table without menus or drinks and had to ask for our server twice before he arrived. The appetizers arrived before the drinks and part of our entrees came before they had cleared the appetizers. It was a disappointing experience which was not expected from this type of restaurant.

    Hakkasan is definitely one of my favorite restaurants, and I loved our fine waiter and delicious food, as always. But I did not like being kept waiting for 15 minutes when I arrived when the restaurant opened, with the excuse that they were still setting up!! With early curtain times, patrons should be seated and served promptly, please, and not be made to feel unwanted and embarassed.

    Having been to both Hakkasan London and Beverly Hills, we were really pleasantly surprised to find the NY outpost to be the best of the 3. The food and service were outstanding on all levels. We were seated in a corner booth - awesome, had a great server, and chose a variety of dishes that really delivered on the promise of upscale Chinese at its best. Crab w/corn soup and Shanghai dumplings to start, then crispy chicken in a kumquat sauce, a delicate steamed sole, and a fantastic rendition of Schezuan green beans w/pork. All great. Do not miss the plain egg and scallion fried rice - it really adds to the meal. We ended with a crazy good peach tart with ginger ice cream - soooo good. Highly recommended for the super stylish.

    We have eaten at Hakkasan NYC numerous times and continue to go back because everything is consistently very good. It doesn't matter what you pick off the menu since everything is prepared just right. Professional service is provided with a smile and the staff really tries to please. As an aside, the restaurant decor is stunning.

    We went to Hakkasan prior to a broadway play. It was our first time Eating there, our server was very helpful in recommending drinks and dishes that we would enjoy. The food was fantastic and the ambience was great also. I would never have thought it was child friendly from its website but it was and our children were not the only ones eating there that night. I would visit this establishment again.

    We went to Hakkasan in NYC. We had a good meal and the ambience is good but the waitress who was serving us wine ruined our experience. She refilled glasses with our wine to the guests sitting on the table next to us! We expected that at least we would be offered to have a free glass of wine after our bottle was half empty! As another reviewer said she has an attitude. I don't know if we are referring to the same person though,!

    Well, nothing is perfect of course but we honestly couldn't find anything wrong with this restaurant. The atmosphere is as elegant and classy as the first Hakkasan in London (where we used to dine a lot when we lived there). Beautiful design, hip but warm and welcoming. And it's not just about the design and feel, the food is AMAZING too!!! Big portions, wonderful for sharing, perfectly prepared and elegantly served. We live in Midtown Manhattan and when people say the food here is overpriced, they obviously must be from out of town, to us locals, this is a great value restaurant. And then to the wonderful staff: very professional, warm and knowledgeable, from Maitre d' to the busboys and not to forget the great doorman, wow! Wow! WOW!

    When made a reservation on OpenTable, nowhere it says it is “business casual”, even in the confirmation. Went for my spouse for the birthday celebration, a scary looking bouncer at the door refused to let us in. We live nearby and asked to push back reservation. The bouncer escorted us in, hostess coldly changed our reservation, and we were escorted back out promptly. Really? Did we commit a crime that deserved public shaming?! We came back, finally got seated. The only decent dish was roasted silver cod. Others were greasy, overcooked, overpowered by spices. The Jasmine Tea Smoked Chicken has little taste other than the skin (the meat was like dry cloth). The Hakka Noodle—supposedly its signature is worse than Panda Express quality.

    If a customer fequests no picy because fof health reasons the food arriving to the table should be consistent with the request and not after carefully explaing to the waiter that it is a dietetic requirement she comes up with a very spicy dish. So how good is the service? Shall we say careless? To be nice? We like Hakkasan and servers change frecuently. Some care about doing a good job some dont care. Its obvious.
