Diner Reviews
  • "I picked this as the venue to celebrate my daughter's 30th birthday, so was hoping for an extra special experience. The food was very good, but some arrived not very hot. The waiter we had seemed irritated and edgy- also not what I was hoping for in an upscale Uptown restaurant. I wouldn't make an effort to go back here, given all the choices in the area It does seem to have good potential, just needs more attentive and friendly staff."

  • "Food is absolutely as good as Chinese food anywhere. Service was impeccable and very attentive."

  • "Food is always good at Howard Wang's Uptown, but tonight, the service was flawless. Best service I've had at the restaurant, which is saying a lot (service is always good!). If you want Chinese food in Dallas, this is the place to go."

  • "We hadn't been to this location and thought we'd try it. Most of the food was really good with the exception of the usually fabulous vanilla prawns. They were lacking sauce which is what makes them so tasty. I told the waiter that the prawns were missing sauce and asked for some extra. He brought a cup of cold sauce to put on the hot prawns and then charged me $2 extra for sauce that should have been on the prawns anyway. I thought for a higher end restaurant, that was unnecessary."

  • "Have dined here several times for lunch and always been pleased. Dinner was no exception. The service was the best I have had yet. I am terrible with names but it began with a C, like Colby or something similar. He was truly exceptional and I would like to commend him for his wonderful service. Well done."

  • "I really enjoyed Howard Wang's, from the time ee entered and our table was waiting for us.. it was just incredible. The decor was one of the highlights for me, lighting was great. The food was really well seasoned and delicious."

  • "We aren't meat eaters so sometimes trying a new Asian restaurant is iffy, as not too many options. We were very pleased with Wong's uptown, lots of veggie options - the eggplant was especially delicious, as were the vegetable dumplings. Service was superb!"

  • "I have dined here once before on a weekday evening, it was fairly busy and fell in love with a ginger beef tenderloin. This time we dined on a Saturday at 6:00 p.m. The place was dead. Couldn't believe it as restaurants around it were booming. Busy or not the restaurant is not loud so I did not have to compete with surrounding conversation or music. Lovely weather so we dined outside. Two of the three entrees were mediocre. Soft shell crab was very well prepared but sadly the Beef Tenderloin and Beef Filet & Scallops were nothing special. Our waiter was just barely above "fair". He was not very attentive to our needs which I found to be unacceptable in an empty restaurant. Lovely place, quiet, decent food."

  • "Howard Wang was a delight to visit. The decor is chic and so is the food. The menu is extensive with expected entrees and amazing specialty dishes. Wang's Splendor is superb. The Ginger Beef is a gorgeous dish, very tasty with tenderloin, cilantro. My daughter chose the soft shell crab -- tempura just extraordinary. Their take on the margarita with a hint of ginger and pear is fantastic. Staff is great. Valet parking cost is "whatever you'd like to pay." Highly recommend this amazing restaurant. I can't wait to visit Dallas again so that we can stop by. "

  • "Always love going to Howard Wang's. I'm new to Dallas and it is in my neighborhood---so I'm a regular. Whenever someone comes to visit, I am sure to take them there as an intro to the neighborhood dining. The manager is always warm, and the music is always GREAT!! Be sure to have the Vanilla Prawns! "

  • "Howard Wang's is definitely a neighborhood gem nestled between Lemmon Ave. and Katy Trail. Somehow in my frequent jaunts to Gloria's next door, I've never seen this place and that's a shame. The drinks were delicious, the food was great and, most notably, the service was stellar. Our server Cameron guided us through the menu and made sure our first time at Howard Wang's was a great one. I can't wait to go back!"

  • "So glad we found this little gem. Always good food and nice service. Convenient valet parking, too. Learned today that our favorite waitress is gone, but David took good care of us today. We'll be back."

  • "This restaurant was ok. It was pretty slow the night I went. We dined out on the patio which was pretty nice, although there were a bunch of people that came in later with dogs. I love dogs, but I dont necessarily want to have a romantic meal out with them roaming around. At any rate the service was great! Food was decent. The bar opens up to the patio and the people sitting at the outside bar were kind of loud so we decided to leave at that point, but we were done with dinner anyway so no big deal. "

  • "We arrived about 9:05 pm for our 9 pm reservation. Woman answering phone had said HWUCB was located "behind the Shell station," which was totally misleading. No one met us at door, but after a couple of minutes a friendly waiter came out and seated us. Wednesday night is probably not a fair time to judge any restaurant. A big, quiet family group was there. A VERY NOISY group of young Asian women in a side room were so loud we could hardly converse. Otherwise, we were the only ones present. We ordered a meal of dim sum, all of which was tasty, but not served hot. Leftovers? We couldn't get a straight answer about ice cream, but our waiter at last appeared with 5-6 scoops of the mango sherbet, apologizing that he wasn't a very good "scooper.""

  • "How can one complain when the service is friendly, the food is excellent, and the atmosphere is professional? I must also add that the background music is excellent! Every time we eat here, we always remark about how good the music is."

  • "Fell in love last week. Returned today - and we're still happy. Food was still fresh and flavorful. Ambiance was nice and manager came to table. The only slight difference was the service today was a tad off. Waited a long time for anyone to come to the table and the personality simply wasn't as energetic or sincere as the server we had last week. In fact, we saw our original server, asked her name, and will now request her when we return; and we WILL return!"

  • "This was our first visit and it was a perfect outing in every sense! Wonderful, wonderful. The hot/sour soup was delicious and served with the large, crispy noodles. I ordered Hunan Chicken and my co-worker ordered Crispy Chicken and both were superb. The service was flawless and everyone was friendly. Can't wait to go back! Bravo!"

  • "Enjoy our meal at Howard Wangs on a early Saturday evening. Meals tasted good with the exception of the wonton soup which was a little bland tasting. Main entries were all tasty and served hot. The main course was brought out before we had time to finish our appetizers making our party feel rushed which was strange due to the restaurant not very full."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Came here for Valentine's Day, and it was perfect, the food was delicious. I tried the Orange peel chicken and it was to die for. For the most part our server was attentive for the beginning and middle of our meal. Unfortunately toward the end he slacked, but it in no way trumped the whole night."

  • "I haven't had anything bad yet. The only reason I didn't give it all five stars today was because our waitress sucked but I've always had great service here all the other times I've been here."

  • "Food is good; ambience is good; Extremely slow service. For a group of 12, it took them more than 25 minutes to get our food ready; took them more than 10 minutes to ring us out. For this kind of speed with automatically 20% tip (I understand the group over 8 auto tip policy...)? not good..."

  • "Wish there was a better Chinese restaurant in Uptown. But we haven't found it yet. Problem is this place is mediocre at best. The food is nominal and the ambience is empty tables with waiters standing around or asking how are things ten times in a 45 minute dining experience. Probably never going back."
