AnQi exceeded all expectations for food, service, and ambiance. First, the food was innovative and of the highest quality. Service was impeccable and highly professional. We were particularly impressed by the overall ambiance of the space. Clearly, a lot of attention and thought to the dining experience went into building out the room. Visually, AnQi is as innovative as its food. The audio-engineering that went into the room design is first class and enables easy table conversation even at peak dining. Overall, AnQi hits it out of the ballpark.

I don’t know what’s happened but the experience has changed. The wait staff was unprofessional and it felt rushed. We finally told our waitress we were there for the evening and to slow things down. As our plates were “dropped” at our table they were not announced or described (as most Asian tapas restaurants are). They “attacked” from all angles. We waited for drinks and refills too Long. A better lunch experience then dinner. We were entertaining out of town guests... it was lacking.

Started with crafted cocktails in the lounge, decided to have appetizers there as it was so comfortable. Had calamari and short rib pot stickers. So delicious. After being seated in the dining room, ordered Ans special garlic noodles with char grilled prawns. They were as wonderful as I remember from Crustacean. Also had fillet dish we loved. Show stopper was the table side ice cream to share. Couldn’t have been more spectacular!

Nice ambiance. Kim Chi fried rice was even better when requested for spicy sauce. Garlic noodle was a bit on the salty side and no taste of garlic. The table side ice cream was cool though and very delicious

The girl who attended us took more than 25 minutes to take the main dish, the service was very slow, and the meat was cooked. the appetizers are very small

Everything was delicious delicious & portions was very generous. The pork in the buns were so tender, the tacos & garlic noodles were so tasty, the shrimp was fantastic. The ace of spades was so fun to watch fired up & delicious too. Would definitely come back when I’m in town visiting. The ambience is so sexy cool...Love Love Love

We arrived without a reservation and were unable to get seated at a table. We were offered seats at the bar. While seated at the bar we noticed several open tables and immediately asked to be transferred to a table. No luck. I check availability online with open table and secured a reservation. I went to the front desk and notified them that I was successful to make a reservation but they refused. I complained to the manager...he attempted to obtain a table ... still no luck. He offered us a free dessert for the inconvenience. It was very nice and we appreciated the GOODWILL.

The two of us selected for dinner four items from the small plates menu plus the garlic noodles. The amount of food was slightly more than what we would have liked. Three items from the small plates menu plus the garlic noodles would have been appropriate. The four items were 1) the popcorn chicken, 2) pastrami egg rolls, 3) short rib pop stickers and 4) the sweet corn ravioli. All items were excellent expect the popcorn chicken which resemble MacDonalds "macnuggets". The ambiance is excellent and the service professional and prompt.

Met with clients for a working lunch. Showed up with a dead laptop and the Anqi Team helped me out and let me charge my laptop while waiting for my clients. The food was very tasty and our server was very attentive during our meal.

Garlic noodles were amazing. The restaurant was lively but not overcrowded. Service was lacking, less attitude more helpfulness and attendance would have gone a long way. One dish didn't make it to the table before our meal ended, management comped the charge (for that dish) and we were told we could take it home as they would be throwing it out anyway.

We celebrated my wife’s birthday and were a party of 8. We reserved a table at 7:00 PM and were seated in a quiet part of the restaurant about 10 minutes after we arrived. While the food was delicious; garlic noodles, Sashimi, fillet steak, salmon were some of our favorites, the service was atrocious. I had the distinct impression that no one had been assigned our table. It took someone 10 minutes to offer us water. No-one went through the menu with us. I asked for my second drink at lest three times, I asked for the bill at least three times.... we were served by a few different people... the food took a long while to arrive. At times we were served by someone who was cleaning the tables, and at other times it was a real server. The food was delicious but the service was really, really poor.

We arrived a few minutes early and even though there was no one waiting and the restaurant was not busy
at the time, we still had to wait 10 minutes before being seated. After being seated in the main dining room we waited 15 minutes without anyone even acknowledging us, no water no nothing. We finally flagged down a server and asked if she knew who was assigned to our table. She said it wasn't her table but she would be glad to help us. Still don't know if anyone was assigned to that table but the ones around us were being served.
