Great food, what was new is now classic modern Chinese food with a twist.
Creative and fun. Service was very very good. Staff was informative and absolutely pleasant without being intrusive.
I have been coming to Chinois on Main for over 20 years and the food and service is still excellent!
Chinois is an island of perfection on a sea of not quites. Hospitality is unbeatable
And the food is scrumptious.
People say the place has aged, but the food is still well prepared.
Great food, wine & atmosphere. Not your ordinary Chinese restaurant.
Have been coming here for may years. never fails to disappoint! This time, we had the sea bass wrapped in won ton for the first time. Outstanding! Also ordered prime filet stir fry. Amazing! The space is tight, and it is a bit noisy. But, if your looking for Wolfgang classic Asian fare, you can't do better than this.
What a gem! You feel so welcomed by all, and the food is spectacular!
My first visit to Chinois was approximately 30 years ago. Chinois has been a favorite since then. They have been consistently outstanding in every way.
Although several dishes we good, others were greasy and seemed to be cooked without passion. Restaurant a shadow of what it was
Jason’s a keeper !
Tasty food, great service. Only issue rather loud.
Always great food, service and value. I never have to worry that dinner will be special!
I was surprised they do not serve bread. Not very French...
Great food, awesome presentation.
My only critic: too cold, air conditioning blasting when it is cold outside
Haven't been for years, but now live across the street & will going in for drinks & apps!
The service was kind of slow and the food wasn’t as good as the time I went before also the acoustics aren’t very good in there and it was hard to talk
Elegantly retro decor. Tasteful design. Definitely worth making a reservation as the dining space filled up quickly. Food served in family servings. Portions were satisfying. BBQ ribs appetizer, roasted sea bass, grilled salmon with gold and black noodles, pad Thai noodles, duck fried rice all delicious! Grilled chicken was ok. 4 out 5 for the service which was excellent except for the need for staff to uncomfortably reach across patrons at our table in order to reach dishes; forcing patrons to lean out of the way. We had a higher expectation. Some of the reaching that was due to table position and limited space in between tables. Overall, we all thoroughly enjoyed the dining experience.
Absolutely loved it! Food was delicious and service impeccable. I’m still dreaming about the sizzling catfish and fried rice...
The desserts were also outstanding- top notch. We will be back here for sure.
This place still appears on many “Best of LA” lists after 30+ years so we figured we ought to give it a try. Food was fine, but portions are meant for at least 2 (which they don’t tell you, and which does somewhat explain the stratospheric prices for some items). Service very old-school and attentive - one server has been there since they opened, which is lovely. Dining room somewhere between dates and retro. Not sure it’s worth the $, must be able to do better for the price in LA.
Still excellent after all these years. Delicious food, meticulously prepared. Wonderful lobster, duck, crab, chicken salad, rice, spinach.... Beautiful room. Delightful staff. Life is a lovely dream in this restaurant.
So much fun. food sharing and friendly staff. The food is terrific
Ate at the counter. It was fun to watch all the action.
Chinese chicken salad - a house staple did not disappoint and was delicious. The lobster in a curry sauce over rice and flash fried spinach was superb and the haricot verts a perfect accompaniment . As always, the service was impeccable. Great dinner!
Waitress exceptional. Food was not as we remembered it. But, all and all it was good.
Birthday Busy Saturday night. Seated for our 8:15 at about 8:40 but we got a relatively quiet table. Ordered mostly specials which were great. Restaurant was far quieter after 9:15. Great evening overall
Loved every dish and our waiter was very helpful
What an amazing experience. Everything, and I mean everything, from the warm welcome we received by the sweet lady at the front, to the professionalism of the staff, and the most delicious lamb chops my date and I had ever had in our lives. We both cannot wait to come back. Thank you Wolfgang Puck and the incredible staff and chefs at Chinois!
I have been to Chinois on Main several times with my brother and friends. My favorite item are the Barbecued Ribs and the green beans with garlic and black bean sauce.yea The staff is what makes one place better than another, and Jason, the MD and Chase, one of the waiters, have both been there over 13 years and they make everyone feel welcomed and well taken care of.
The lobster at Chinois is proof that God loves us. The bartender also serves the best classic cocktails I've ever found.
Never disappoints. The food and service is always great.
Always a great time at Chinois! WAITER WAS EXCELLENT AND FUN! Bartender excellent as well!!!!
I live in London and I have bene eating for more than 30 years at Chinois on main. It use to be a great place, maybe the fist fusion restaurant in the worls. Recently I notices some weakness. My last meal in mArchwas a disaster. Food was really not good. The spare ribbs I used to lover were burnt, the duck was terribly oily ,.The desset looked like a school canteen dish. To add to the injusry the service was simply terrible. We had to. Ask for water, for a napkin, for the desset menu three times. Even th emanager, sitting at a tsble seemed to be sleeping.
Having eaten may be a 100 times at various Puck’s restaurants I emailed numerous timesthe company to complain. No reply. Hey do not care.
Major waste of time and money. It is sad but this place seems to be gone.
Love this stalwart Puck restaurant.
Food is reliably great; service the same... noise level really tough. No matter, the noise the food is fun and delicious .
Still remains one of the best and consistent restaurants in LA.
I had not been to Chinois on the main for several years and as someone who likes great food and a pleasing environment I was once again delighted with the delicious meal and friendly Santa Monica charm. I only wish that we had Chinois on the Main in Montreal or Ottawa!
Kudos to all!!!
Our waiter Chase was fantastic. Great food recommendations. Mai Tias best in LA. Food is terrific all the time.
We came for my birthday. Great service and food. Love this restaurant!
This place is what LA restaurants should strive to be. Excellent food and portions. Restaurants like this are so few and far between in LA nowadays. I hope they stay open for many more decades.
Everything was perfect. I would like to point out that the toilets are not at the level of such a restaurant. Only fit one person in a restaurant for 70 people? too little
Food and service are always excellent. Wonderful lovely staff with delicious tastes to match!
