    The food was very average considering the cost. The appetizers were served quickly followed by entrees too quickly. After that the wait staff disappeared. Getting a second drink took effort and the drink was wrong and had to be sent back. I was really expecting more. The ambiance in the lower dining area was very stark making it clear that lingering was not what management wanted diners to do.

    On my 4 year wedding anniversay I took my wife to this restaurant thinking it would be an amazing night. My wife order the surf an turf one of the most expensive meal on the menu and it was horrible says my wife. The waiter was not helpful at all the calamari was way to chewy. The night at that restaurant was just bad. I wouldn't recommand anyone to that place. Overly price expensive chinesse food, you could get from your neighborhood Chinese store. That would be way better.

    Overall I had a pretty decent experience at Philipes. However the hostess could be a little more friendly. She came off as pretty demanding in the beginning then calmed down around the time we were seated, and the tables should be sat in accordance to people and anticipated meals to be ordered because the tables are not built for excess plates and glassware. Your table will get crowded very quickly causing your dining experience to go down hill. in addition to that, the waitors / waitresses should remove the unwanted plates / glasses as they bring the food out to eliminate clutter.

    Our server was very good. The food was not. I had three different items and each one could have come from any quick takeout place. The food was dried out and without taste. I kept expecting it to get better buy it didn't. Too bad since many other patrons have had very good meals.

    We last ate here several years ago and having seen it survive, we thought we'd try it again. Alas, it has not gotten any better than before. The Hot and Sour soup appetizer was the best part of the meal for me. There were three of us, each ordering different entrees: poached salmon, crispy beef, and Beijing chicken. We knew what to expect when the dishes all arrived and they were each covered in the same colored sweet and sour sauce. The beef and chicken were both quite oily. On the luncheon menu we were being offered coconut and grape sorbet, but in reality what arrived had nothing to do with coconut -- rather, it was more pineapple sorbet. We hate to give a glamorous restaurant in a fine part of town a bad review, but c'est la vie.

    Phillipe Chow's is an upper tier eating experience nestled in the cover of normalcy of east 62nd Street. Although the outside of the restaurant is finely appointed, the real oppulance is in the service, the setting and in what can only be described as asian cuisine as it was intended to be. The appetizer listings were recognizable and delicious. The entree's prepared for a memorable eating experience and the wine, mixed drinks and dessert offerings all designed to pair perfectly with the menu items. I would highly recommend this wonderful restaurant to anyone looking for a satsifying asian cuisine experience!

    We were about 30 minutes late and they were very accommodating. They seating was very close. When people for the other table wanted to get up we had to get up! Our waiter was very nice and always had a smile. But the music was a little to loud. We kinda had to shout but it was hard because we were so close to the other table. Now let's get to the food. This was our first time we usually go to Mr.Chow but we really wanted to try it out. The lettuce wraps were great! The fried rice tasted like a regular Chinese restaurant.

    I went for my b day and had a great time, but I didn't love the food it was ok. It's a romantic spot, and sorta low key; that's what I loved about it. Idk if I would go back but it fit it's purpose for my bday. PS I hated the chicken satay and that's what they are praised for (thank god they removed it from my bill).

    It was my first time at Phillipes and it was an amazing experience. The food was GREAT, service was quick and kind , people were very friendly to my friends and I. The ambiance was exquiste. The food is also a reasonable price. Only thing I disliked was my drink "Philitini" (not sure the spelling) it was a taste of coconut and vodka and the waiter said "It's a sweet drink." It was actually strong! I would recommend this restaurant for people who are celebrating a birthday or for anyone who wants to go out for dinner.

    I, often, dine at high quality restaurants. Philippe is a well-known and rather popular restaurant. So I had high expectations going into my dining experience that fell short of being met. My waiter was tall with a really strong accent. if by chance I ever dine here again, I hope to never get him again. He was forgetful and brought my husband the wrong order. He didn't seem a bit at all apologetic. My chicken was extremely dry. However, my husband did find his salmon to be tasty. Mr. Chow is definitely the better restaurant between the two.

    The food was good but the waiter couldve been a little better. I wasn't too impressed with the chicken satay that everyone raves about but everything else as I ate was good, such as the Bejing chicken. Also it was my birthday and the staff didn't sing happy birthday to me which was quite shocking.

    My daughters had raved about Phillippe (especially the Jade dumplings!) and I was eager to try it. We had a 7:30 reservation and were seated promptly. We placed our order and sat back to enjoy one amazing dish after another! Everything came out piping hot and our waiter quickly accommodated our request for an extra side of the fabulous plum dipping sauce. The delicate jade & shrimp dumplings were incredible, and the velvety chicken satays with peanut sauce were divine!!! Very unique! I will definitely be back the next time I am in NYC!

    I've been to this restaurant about 5 times already. I've had a great time and wonderful service all the time. This time, Food was great. Service was HORRIBLE. After being seated by our host, our waiter came over. I wanted to try something different because I always order the same thing every time I come here. He was not recomending any dishes. He was just standing there waiting on us to tell him what we wanted. After placing our order, our waiter never came back to check on us to see if we needed more water, how's the food, etc. none of that. By the time he came over, we we're finish with our food and was ready to pay for our food and leave. My friends & I were very disappointed in the service we revived after paying 400$ on dinner.
