    I love mr. chow's food but I dont know why the food is a little different from uptown. Even though everything was pretty good I always find the dishes uptown a little tastier. I always order the classics and have been eating them for years. I just find downtown a little blander than other mr. chow restaurants.

    What a huge disaplointment! I reserved this a while ago for my partner's 42nd birthday. When we got there we were greeted by the maitre'd very casually. "Hello guys" does not befit a restaraunt you are going to easily pay over $200.00 for 2 people. After asking us if it was "boys night out" he sat us in the strangest area of the dining room. They actually have a bussing table set up so the bus boys can scrape people's dirty plates into buckets, right infront of you. It is so unsightly and noisy. They moved us but it was pointless. The place was so loud and not what you want for a small chic birthday celebration. And the food coming out did not look appetizing. Not at all like Beverly Hills. We left and did not dine.

    Went for NYC Restaurant Week menu. Had Mr Chow noodles, ribs, velvet chicken, crispy beef, veggies, rice and sorbet/ice cream. Food was not cooked to order and arrived tepid. Beef was tough and everything else was bland. Waiter talked up these mojito champagne cocktails, which we tried. They were weak and tasteless at $20 each! Attentive service but save your money for a better restaurant with better food and drinks. I despise restaurants that deliver a substandard product during Restaurant Week! Outdoor dining was boring with no music. Mr Chow should just sit it out next year. I won't be back.

  • Bums rush and... where's the beef??
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013VIP
    Dined on 8/11/2014
    Crispy beef was just crispy... no beef. It would have taken a microscope to find any actual beef within the fried jullianed strips. It was a weekday-- the place was half empty, but we were still rushed through every single course. We were actively eating our appetizer when the busboys (2!) came up and took our plates out of our hands. We said we were still eating and they said "We are just bringing you new plates." When they came back with the new plates, they also brought the main course while we were still eating the appetizer. They again attempted to take away our appetizer dishes (~30% of food still there!) and we had to ask (for the fourth time) to keep the plates. Dessert--ice cream-- was brought melted. Greatly disappointed.

    Mr. Chows is a reputable chain of restaurants, but this location in TriBeCa was very down to earth. While all the waiters, bus boys and host were dressed to a T. Everyone was friendly and welcoming. They were very happy to explain anything that was misunderstood on the menu, and very concerned with our needs. We had one main server, but throughout the course of the meal, and server passing but checked on us to make sure everything was good. The food was excellent family style servings, we even had leftover. The bar had these huge vases of beautiful white Lila's that's smelled amazing. I will definitely be going back

    I was excited to see Mr.Chows on the restaurant week list since I had never been. When I got there it was a different story, the food was GROSS! I ordered the Mr.Chow noddles vegetarian style which didn't smell appetizing, the drunken fish which I didn't even touch and I had to share my dessert with my company because the waiter said everything comes family style, which isn't close to being true. When ordering the waiter didn't listen to a word we said and brought out what he thought we would like and didn't ask if the meal was ok or come back and check on us. I felt like I spent $62 dollars on white rice and butter but that was all I ate. There was tons of food left on the table and the manager didn't even ask if the food was ok.

    Service barely ok, plates just put in front of you, no interaction or explanation, inattentive. Food is mediocre at best, I can't understand how people rate this food good in any way. A PF Chang chain or any restaurant in China Town is doing a way better job. Overpriced for the quality you receive. NO way I will go back there.

    Picked it for the RW menu, but ended up going with the standard menu instead. We got peking duck "semi prix fixe" that came with additional starters/mains. None of the apps or mains other than the duck really impressed - solid, but not outstanding. Not enough characters to list them here. Duck was fantastic, v crispy skin and tender meat. Service was decent (very attentive with water refills) but was not impressed with actual waitstaff (sent a dish in error to our table, made jokes that nobody understood, felt a little looked down on). Ambience is loud for sure - better for groups, not somewhere you can really have a decent conversation. Overall for $120/px after tax/tip (1 drink each) I wouldn't recommend unless someone else is paying.
