Diner Reviews
  • "The only complaint I have is I made the reservation on Open Table and requested a high chair. When we got there, I was told they do not have high chairs or booster seats and we were with a 16 month old child. Someone should have addressed that when I made the reservation. Other than that, great food."

  • "So, if you want a nostalgic, old school dining experience -- when men strived to be gentlemen and women strived to be ladies -- Mister K's is your place. Overpriced but tasty old school Asian Cuisine when it was okay to call them Chinese Restaurants. The silverware and dinnerware is museum vintage I think. And I think I saw James Bond and Anne Bancroft at a corner table sipping on martinis..."

  • "We always enjoyed visiting Mr. K's in Washington, DC. Unfortunately, it lost its lease a number of years ago and closed. So, when we were in New York, to celebrate our anniversary, it was first on our list of restaurants to dine at. We were definitely not disappointed. The food was absolutely delicious, the service was impeccable and the ambience was delightful. We had an absolutely wonderful time and will highly recommend this restaurant to our friends."

  • "As Chinese food goes, this was a dud. We had to send the Dim Sum back as it came out cold. It was just mildly tempting. The main course was really lackluster."

  • "There is no better chinese restaurant in NYC. The food and service is amazing. The women are given a flower to start the evening. After you go here other chinese food is very disappointing to eat. The decor is amazing. This is the only chinese restaurant that serves great desserts- most including Shun Lee offer you only ice cream or pineapple. Put your sneakers on and run here."

  • "We arrived at the restaurant and there were four giant trash bags outside the front door on a Saturday night. We had a 6:30 reservation, we were greeted at the door and offered a tiny table for two in an almost empty restaurant. We complanined and were given a booth. Two hours later there was still eight empty booths. Food was very good and very expensive for what is was."

  • "The service was good, the drink at the bar was stiff but I can't help feel like I stepped back in time to he 80's. Appetizers were cold, enterees were delicious, Grand Marnier Shrimp mm mm good. Needs a decor update. It could be amazing."

  • "My wife and I dined @ Mr. K's for Mother's Day. The art deco décor is really lovely, the service was formal, attentive & helpful. We chose vegetarian options for dinner & were very happy. The food was well-presented & prepared, flavorful and not the "usual" Chinese fare. We have been to Mr. K's many times over the years & it continues to deliver really solid Chinese food in a lovely atmosphere. The only negative comment is that the desserts, which in the past had been quite good, were both limited & not particularly good. Perhaps that had to do with dining on a Sunday evening."

  • "We had gone there with our clients on a Thursday night. It was not a very busy evening and despite of that the service was not very good. Our server was grumpy it felt as if he was doing a favor by serving us. We ordered Tea which came after the appetizers and they served tea bags instead of tea leaves. ( I have never seen a chinese restaurant which serves tea bags) we are vegetarians and had specifically mentioned rice without eggs but it still came with eggs. And the server was not even apologetic about it. Will never go back to this restaurant"

  • "Lunch prize fixe is awesome for $28. Included a sorbet palette cleanser... no joke. Imagine Art Deco decor, business lunch crowd, pink cushy sofa chairs and fancy dishes and silverware. Ma Paul tofu was fabulous, as were the dumplings and green tea ice cream. And of course... top it off with a hurried, abrupt, but tender-hearted Chinese waiter in a tux!"

  • "Hadn't been here is some time and glad I returned. Lovely, elegant restaurant with impeccable service. Like a flashback to a more refined time. Unlike any other upscale Chinese restaurant in ambiance and presentation. Not trying to be super hip (despite it's clientele). Just plain super. Food beautifully prepared and presented. You could actually taste the components of the meal, not just the seasonings. Surprised it wasn't more crowded, since it was RW, but that allowed us to really appreciate our experience. There is a regular prix fixe menu and lots of superb choices. Lunch crowd had lots of suits. Not surprising, given the location. Go and enjoy. You can't go wrong."
