  • "It was delicious, I could bathe in that peanut sauce. ;)"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Do not go here if you want a conversation! It is so aloud you have to scream! The food was good but nothing special at all. Feels very impersonal and really not too tasty."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "We had high expectations & went there for restaurant week after reading the great reviews on open table & Zagat. Upon entering we thought that it must really be a French restaurant (or maybe Latin, judging by the many Spanish & Latin waiters). The food was unimpressive - I've had better shrimp toast at a take-out Chinese restaurant, and the noodles were ok, but nothing special.. Dessert was delivered as vanilla and green tea ice creams (no choice). The restaurant was SO LOUD that we had to yell across the table to have any kind of conversation . . not terribly romantic. The food was rushed. Our entrée was delivered before we finished our entrees. Next time, I'll go to the hole-in-the wall restaurant with reasonable prices and great food."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Here's the problem... The significant, ever-present up-selling (without letting you know the price) is insidious and insulting. The tables are on top of one another, and even that can be tolerated, if they staff were considerate and cheerful about it. Sadly, they are just rude and annoyed. (I asked my server for a non-alcoholic beer, and he looked as if I had two heads and annoyingly looked away and said "no, why would you want that?"). I even asked him "are you annoyed with me?" But in general, the staff care less about you unless you are well known or a celebutant. It's really all rather insulting. Food is quite good. Really..."

  • "Mr. Chow (Tribeca) is a good restaurant. I attended during restaurant week and the menu selection really met my expectations. The service however was difficult to deal with. My guest and I were sat at a table in a very tight spot (almost as if they created more and more tables to support the restaurant week crowds), there were no intermediate checkups on how my guest and I were doing on food and drinks, and after being offered an alternative for a seafood-based dish, the alternative dish was never brought to our table. I know the restaurant can and does do better, so I'm willing to give it the benefit of the doubt. Maybe the Midtown East location is a bit more engaging with their customers."

  • "This is my go-to chinese in New York City. Whilst prices are high, the food is consistently good."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "we had a perfect meal the other night. I used to find the food downtown was different from uptown in execution even though the menu was the same. uptown was always better. now I find that the food is much more like uptown. the chicken sate downtown used to be so sweet it was almost like having dessert. now it's the way it should be."

  • "Went for husbands birthday had such a great time! Great food! Great service!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "It was a alright experience in terms of food quality and service."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "In summary: if you have a food allergy DO NOT eat here. The very first thing that we said to the waiter was that I have a tree nut allergy. I go out to eat a lot, and I usually try to just order things without tree nuts in them to be safe, but the waiter insisted that we all try the tasting menu. We agreed to do so, but stressed the fact that I had an allergy. When the first dish arrived, it was a shrimp appetizer covered in walnuts. After pointing this out to the waiter and expressing our concern, a few minutes later they brought to the table a chicken entree with walnuts. After now expressing even more concern to the staff, they brought a chicken dish and told us it was ok because it had peanuts, but they were cashews. Awful experience."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Mr Chow was in a hurry Friday night! The food was on the table thirty seconds after ordering and kept coming at pace. So we were in at 7 and out by literally 8:30. I had fun with my group of 7 but would have liked to linger w my drink a bit to chat before food was served. I attribute this to restaurant week."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "The food is without equal - delicious and very unusual but you could see that great pains were taken with its presentation. The staff is interested and helpful without being overbearing and hovering. One of our party used a walker and staff was extremely attentive to her. Have never seen staff in a restaurant so helpful. Very expensive but waiter took pains to combine our dishes to save us money. The expense is forgotten with the quality of the food."
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "Top notch food and impeccable service- should be on everyone's bucket list."
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "Yes, Mr Chow's food is off the charts great. Four of us were lucky enough to be there on Restaurant Week and it was amazing. Drinks waiter(black jacket) was the one real downer. Curt and inattentive, an uninspiring beginning to a much anticipated dinning experience. This guy was bad. He'd take one persons drink order and leave. Slip the drink on the table and not ask or wait to see if anyone else wanted a drink. Eventually we got 4 drinks. Our waiter (white jacket), on the other hand was as fine as the food. Just what a restaurant of this quality would have to complete the diner's experience; helpful, nice, made great suggestions, pleasant yet not overly solicitous, didn't hover yet was there exactly when we needed him then discreetly gone."
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "Although the restaurant is Very Chic and the service was up to par ... The Food was Over Rated!!! I was very disappointed with my dinner. Appetizers were okay ... But I tried to play it safe being that it was My first time here.. I got chicken breast.. It was rubbery and no real taste to it. My boyfriend had the fish that he only took one bite of. The only good thing I can take away is that if your into name dropping NeNe Leakes of the ( RHWOA) was dining there on this particular night . If your into that then this the restaurant for You as I'm sure many interesting people pass thru there. As for me don't think I'm going back .. If I'm gonna spend that kind of money I want to fall in love with what Im eating!"

  • "Went here for restaurant week. The food was great but what really impressed me was the attentiveness of the staff especially during dinner on a Friday night."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "3 of my friends and I went on a Friday during Resurant week to see what the resturant was all about. We ordered from the pre fixed menu. We tried everything on the pre fix menu except the tofu salad. The chicken satay was ok, the sweet and sour pork was ok...pretty much everything was just blah. I've had better food at a takeout Chinese food restaurant than at mr. chows. And drinks are expensive. My friend bought an amaretto sour for $15. I would recommend people to not go here during restaurant week. It's not worth it. Oh yeah it was crowded but that is to be expected during a Friday night. Finally note-don't get the beef with shepherds purse. The beef's texture is odd."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "I attended Mr. Chow' s during restaurant week because I knew on a regular night I would not be able to afford dinner here. I arrived to my reservation late, but was immediately accommodated. I wasn't aware that the food served for restaurant week was family style but that was okay. The food was very different from what I am accustom to but it turned out great. So much so, I am afraid to eat from the neighborhood chinese restaurants. Desert was also great; we were given a mixed berry tart, sherbet and ice cream, and chocolate mousse cake. Our waiter, who's name escapes me, was also great. He never left our water glasses empty, was extremely helpful in explain the dishes, and provided us with another chocolate mousse free of charge!"
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Though the wait staff was very attentive - we never saw a wine list nor a menu - and though we had reserved for Restaurant Week, when our waiter described the family style service and indicated that we would be served 4 appetizers and 4 main course and then offered to select the items for us, based on our food preferences / allergies he never mentioned that he was selecting items from the main menu not the restaurant week menu, nor the premium pricing for the Peking Duck he suggested. When the bill came at the end of the evening, we were outraged to see a food charge for more than $250 instead of the $38+ restaurant week promotion, and further outraged when our waiter was unable to make any accommodation in the charge."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "I have been to Mr Chow before its a little expensive so we tried restaurant week. We had to request the restaurant week menu which we were made to feel bad about and it was suggested to us that for two people we should really order 3 meals as its mort enough for two. Very limited choice and food was not the usual Mr Chow, they could not have went any cheaper with the appetizer and the dessert. A bowl of ice cream to share..... not a nice experience."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "We took the staff recommendation to do a two course "tasting menu" with about 4 dishes in each course to share family style. Overall, the food was great. The chicken lettuce wraps and shrimp stood out. And desserts (sorbet and molten cake) were excellent. Our only issue was the fast service - like the goal was to turn the table as fast as possible. The first course - 4 dishes - all arrived within 5 minutes of sitting down and before the drinks even arrived. And 4 dishes were pretty filling. A promised break between the two courses was too short - and we had to keep holding off the 2nd wave of food to make sure the entire dinner wasn't over before it even really started. I would suggest ordering in waves so you can pace the dinner."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "First of all we were seated at a corner table in spite of lot of open tables available. Secondly the server asked a few questions about our tastes and said that he would wow our palette with his choices. Since the atmosphere is so intimidating we went it but was clearly a mistake because in spite of 2 non-vegetarians at the table we were given no non-veg appetizers. We were looking forward to tasting the much spoken about Chicken Satay but alas! The main course was also not that great and we would have really preferred some lobster or better seafood options than shrimp in oily schezuan kind of sauce.Also the server never came back to ask if we liked our dishes."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Food was ok, but one can do better in Chinatown at a lower costs. Ambience is nice, but there are no soft surfaces so the noise level is very high. The staff is over attentive. We were asked at least four times in five minutes if we wanted pre dinner drink. This seems note to be good service, but the restaurant wanting to sell us high margin drinks. Seems to be more for the bridge and tunnel crown and tourist than locals."

  • "Loved the food and the impeccable customer service!"

  • "Dining at Mr. Chows was beautiful experience. I loved the setting in TriBeCa. The service was very courteous. The food is a little pricey but you get what you pay for. Overall, my friends and I had a wonderful time."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "What an experience! When we first walked in the waiter strolled over with a bucket of ice and various bottle of champagne, talk about an entrance! The main maitre-d' helped us select the best items on the menu for the prix-fixe menu and everything was amazing. The noodles and dumplings were especially good, and the chicken satay of course. Definitely try the coconut ice for dessert!"
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "The service was wonderful, I wasnt crazy about the pre-fixed menu but it was understood due the event. The food was the best I ever tasted in this category"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Food was great. Service was average. Felt like we were being rushed to leave the entire time. Our plates were being cleared before we even had a chance to finish our meals. Overall. Not really worth the hype in my opinion."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "too noisy, over priced, and one of the worst overall ambiance's i have experienced on a Valentines Day dinner out. The conversations around me were overbearing, the food was way over priced for tiny portions, and it was immediately apparent how quickly they were trying to turn tables over. usually, this is all still the case, except without the noise. So for a special occasion, it is decent at best....for Valentines Day, never again."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Went for Valentine's dinner and was very impressed with the service and ambiance. The food was good. The highlight of the night for my girlfriend was when they gave her a rose on our way out. She gushed about it all weekend. This place definitely knows how to treat couples, and the service makes the high cost of food (which isn't THAT much better than a cheaper Chinese restaurant) well worth it."

  • "We have been going to Mr. Chow on 57th Street for over 30 years. Hear a lot about Mr. chow TriBeCa but never took the time to go there. 57th Street was too convenient. Given our experience at Mr. chow TriBeCa our whole party has agreed: Bye-bye 57th Street...!!! Mr. Chow TriBeCa here we go...... From now on we will drive a few miles more and 20 minutes down... It is worth. Same delicious food, more space, more comfortable, less noise. You can really have a conversation."

    Dined on 2/10/2014
  • "From $30-60 a GLASS for champagne that is pushed at you the moment you walk in, to the seriously overpriced basic chinese food, this place serves 2 purposes: 1. Tourist trap. 2. If you have money to burn and are looking to impress a date with a "name" place. Otherwise, you're much better off in Chinatown, Flushing, Sunset Park or anyplace that serves good chinese food."

    Dined on 1/26/2014
  • "If you are celebrating a birthday or need to take a table of 8-10 out to dinner, Mr. Chow's is the place. The Chef selection of dishes are a good representation of upscale authentic Chinese Food. However, Chinatown is the best place to find the real deal. The shrimp and walnuts dish was good but not as creamy and tasty as that found in Chinatown. The noodles, displayed in a hand-pulled show, did not have any depth of flavor or al dente "chewiness" as that found at Xian on St. Marks. Every dish that was served, I could compare to a tastier version found elsewhere at various locations. Because you cannot find all of these exceptional dishes at one place, you might want to settle for all of the good versions at Mr. Chow."

  • "I d always loved all Mr Chow restaurant specially because of the food. I am a frequent client, but this time was the first time we have a problem with a food that came really bad, just one dish, a spareribs, was to big, to Bonny, no meet, very hard to release the meat from it, any taste at all. The others dishes were amazing like always..they are really elegant and didn't charge for the spareribs .."
