    Though attentive, the service is pushy in being suggestive and too quick to whisk away the food. We felt very rushed. One hint at standing and four servers pull your chair, push your arms in to your coat, nod, and motion for the door.

    Mr Chow is a legend in Beverly Hills and has to be experienced. The food is amazing, the service is super efficient and the speed of the kitchen is something others should learn from. My only complaint would be that its very crowded and the lack of high chairs for kids makes one think if that's their discreet way of saying "no kids please" :)

    I always expect the best from Mr. Chow, and they always deliver. The food is consistently good. Each dish has been perfected and always impresses. The attentive staff was sweet to have helped us celebrate our anniversary with a delicious dessert. Mr. Chow is a must, and the Beverly Hills location is tops.

    What a delight. While visiting Beverly Hills we stopped in at Mr. Chow's for dinner. I was a bit nervous dining in a fancy restaurant with 2 small children. The staff seemed delighted that they were there! Recommendations were made as to what the kids may like and were spot on. Wonderful experience, can't wait to return.

    Sorry to say it but Mr. Chow's is sorely overrated. The ambience at the Beverly Hills location leaves much to be desired (unlike the Malibu location) and much of your dining experience depends on whoever else is dining there at the same time. There's very little space yet somehow the restaurant is a loud echo chamber. The food is good, but definitely not worth the price tag; a $200 dinner for 2 should exceed expectations but this one unfortunately did not.

    This was a business lunch and we were able to just sit and talk without thinking about what to order and we couldn't have ordered better if we had. They selected and we loved every bite from the tender prawns and juicy steamed pork dumplings to the crispy, delicious Peking duck and the succulent filet mignon. Fantastic food and service!

    It was lovely. We had the duck. We had informed them this was a big birthday celebration (40th) - even reminding them at being seated - but nothing happened. Not even a comped dessert. (Not that we were expecting that). But it made us wonder, why even bother. They were very nice and helpful and attentive.

    The waiter offered to choose for us, not expecting our bill to be 350 for three people. He brung several entrees that came with 3 to five pieces so 1 piece of each & 65.00 per person for that was a little ridiculous to me.

    Whether sitting in Beverly Hills or Knightsbridge London; Mr. Chow's superb kitchen delivers in equal measure. The decor is unique and the restaurant has a very vibrant feel to it. Swift and attentive service with a smile-a night we will remember for quite some time. Many thanks Mr. Chow! I genuinely have to say the service from the moment we entered to when we left was second to none; courteous, professional but with an element of friendliness not easily found within the 5 star restaurant fraternity. We are privileged to have been patrons of what is an institution for almost 30 years, and where every visit has been of equal standing. Mr Chow is an absolute must on the list of "100 things to do before you die"!!

    mr. chow is really a great place. the food is incredible, service is impeccable... if you really want to impress someone, this is the place! it's hard to find an upscale Chinese restaurant in Los Angeles - but mr chow is just that. let your server know what foods you like and dislike, and he'll make recommendations. I always suggest taking that route over looking at the menu - much more fun! over the years, I have gone vegan and developed food allergies to wheat and soy, which really limits me at most restaurants, especially Asian food. but the guys at mr chow always make sure I have great food on my plate! they are very accommodating. this is my absolute favorite restaurant and has been for 10 years!

    It was my girlfriend and I first time. We initially came because we wanted to experience celebrity dining, we figured if celebrities went the food has to be good. I thought it would have been a quiet atmosphere but it's not, it's more of businesses soup kitchen atmosphere when it comes to the noise level. If you're wondering what to wear, it's pretty much optional. I recommend getting all different dishes with various tastes. The shrimp and walnut was very tasty and the spicy sauce is soooo good.

    We went to celebrate our sister-cousin's birthday and she was sooooooo excited. Nooooooo, wait a minute, we ALL were!! We arrived pretty early. However, valet was courteous, polite to explain the hours of operation and allow us to wait in our car out of the cold. Once inside, the ambiance was great! The servers were EXCELLENT!! The flash fried collard greens were delicious! The shrimp rolls were something to write home about. Mr. Chow Noodles looks like spaghetti with sauce on top however it was great. The lobster was well seasoned.... KISS THE CHEF! After dinner, the waiters came over to sing Happy Birthday to the honoree. Awesome guys for the lovely rendition. Can't wait to go back to enjoy it yet again! THANKS Mr. Chow....

    First visit to the location. Unfortunately, the food was bland without one hint of seasoning. The taste were all very soft and unappealing. We had the 2 appetizers and 2 dinner course option at $59/person. The shrimp fried rice was white rice with peas and steamed. The chicken joanna was super bland and not sure if sauce was missing. The best thing of the night were the green beans! Overall, we saw celebrities but didn't enjoy our food. Very cramped and not a romantic place to go at all.

    Made reservations through Open Table. Received the reservation time I wanted. I took 2 clients to dinner, and the food and service was impeccable. Only issue I had was Valet parking. It was 9 dollars, I gave the Valet a 20 dollar bill, and he brought my car and disappeared with my money. Food is high priced, so do not come with light pockets.

    My husband and I decided to try out this place and see what all the hype was about last week when we were in LA. Advise - don't waste your time or money! There is WAY better chinese food in the city. The service was horrible to match the food. Our waiter was very pushy and kept wanting us to order more than we wanted. The tables are also so close together than your conversations are never private. Needless to say, my husband and I left there very disappointed.
