INTRO - Permanently Closed Ratings and Reviews
Great service from our waiter. This was the Dim Sum menu. Stars go to the white curry noodles and the chicken and lobster Baos. The truffle egg drop was great. Steak was pretty solid. Wasn't crazy about the duck fried rice though it was our last item and we were pretty full.
Been meaning to come here for a while. So glad I finally made it! Loved everything about our meal. Food and service were top-notch. Even my steak and potatoes boyfriend loved the meal.
Not that there was anything crazy or over-the-top about our meal. He's just not a Chinese/dim sum kinda guy. But he thought the food was fantastic. Highly recommend.
Very civilized way to spend an early Sunday afternoon, eating the innovative take on dim sum. Service was quick, friendly, and unobtrusive. The food, of course, was well-presented and delicious. It was also well-priced, especially considering the neighborhood and venue.
Came here for a double date and had a modern Chinese cuisine. I ordered the Dim Sum which gives you a portion of the different a la carte options so you get to taste almost everything. Every bite exploded with the perfect flavors. As the dishes come out, it may seem like it isn't enough for one person, but it totally is and is filling by the end. Our server David was exceptionally kind and attentive to our needs and questions. Compliments to the talented and creative chefs! Thank You!!
I have been to INTRO several times, but this was the first with this group of chefs - all former INTRO chefs. The menu they created in collaboration with each other was one of the tastier meals I've had in a long time. My girlfriend and I chose a la carte instead of the dim sum because there were so many things we wanted to try. And we tried a ton and loved it all. The baos were delicious, the beef was cooked perfect and the spices on everything were flavorful and not overwhelming. A few spicy things. The black truffle egg drop soup was one of the better soups I've ever had.
The service is always great and the room is very comfortable and nice. I will definitely continue going to this LEY restaurant, maybe even for a second time with these chefs!
Our server got several items of our order wrong, we did not complain as we are too kind to do so. He was also rather chatty into his personal life, which frankly we did not care to hear about.
The entire group agreed that the truffle egg drop soup ruined the meal. The soup was intensely flavored with the truffle oil which overpowered the dish and left us all with a truffle taste that lined our mouths for the rest of the meal, even through desert. We would have complained but we are not that type of people to make a scene about it.
Overall I give it a 6.5/10 and wouldn't go again or recommend it. If anything we should have asked for our money back.
It was ok, service was fantastic. Lovely wait staff. For being such a high profile restaurant the food was only ok. The cabbage salad was bland and under seasosned. The Mushroom salad just tasted like a mouthful of goat cheese. The curry noodles were good but overcooked, sauce was good. Shrimp was good but smelled fishy. Bao was great. The duck Fried was suggested but was the worst out of all dishes. Tasted like game and old rice stale rice. No flavor very disappointing last dish. It was a birthday dinner so I asked to put a candle in our dessert. Sorbet was very good. Overall 3 star. not bad, but could be way better. Again, service was the best part of the experience. Thanks
We had the tasting menu, and each course was so flavorful and satisfying. Veggies were cooked perfectly, still had crunch and were dressed with a nice blend of spies/sauces. The prime beef, the last course, was so tender you didn't need a knife. And the ribs, OMG!
Intro's homage to traditional Chinese dim sum is a wonderful experience for those I like these small treats. Lobster dumplings or short rib egg foo young are just two of the many dishes that are true to Chinese cuisine. Don't wait long to try this brunch since this menu will only remain until June.
Food was excellent as always. Server was good in short spurts, not consistently attentive. They had it noted it was my wife's birthday & it was great that the staff signed a card, however it was an anniversary card. None of these issues would prevent me from returning. Everyone has an off nite. Overall a positive experience.
Our second time here...we really enjoyed the tasting menu. The whole experience felt less upscale than our first time, but that's one of the things I love about this restaurant. You can dress up for a special occasion or go casual-glam and not feel out of place. Fine dining without the stuffy, uncomfortable, speak-only-in-whispers feeling. We can't wait to come back!
Food delivered out of order/course
Wait staff kept delivering another table's dishes to our table; was told our waiter "was new," as if that's an excuse
One dish was completely forgotten, until we brought it to their attention
Many of the noodle dishes were undercooked, and this was a dim sum menu
Waited a loooooong time for the check
Food was mediocre, service was even more subpar
Spend your hard earned dollars elsewhere
