    Dined here based on reviews on OpenTable and google and, wow, what a great meal. Fine China's menu, altho smaller than some, had plenty of choices to keep us happy. We tried potstickers, chili prawns, shrimp fried rice, dan dan noodles, and duck with steamed buns. All items were really good! Our fave was definitely the dan dan noodles -- spicy but SO good. Duck presentation was really nice, but hubby said it was a tad on the greasy side (sometimes typical of duck, I know). Chili prawns were really tasty but were more on the "regular shrimp" size. Still great flavor tho! A plus was that the fried rice didn't have egg in it. Signature cocktails were fun to try! The standout was the Pitch Black -- I would go back just for this drink alone. SO GOOD. Service was outstanding! We had Johnna as our waitperson and she was very knowledgeable and helpful. Friendly and willing to offer direction when needed, but also didn't smother us. Everyone else we encountered was just as friendly and nice. We will definitely be visiting Fine China again soon, it was a really welcome & slightly alternative take on Asian dishes. Impressive!

    No complaints at all. Our server did a great job of explaining the menu and made some great suggestions. Highlights were the sea bass, chili lime prawns and crispy dumplings but there were no bad dishes. The cocktails were imaginative and very nice as well.

    The restaurant itself is beautiful. Based on this, I expected better than what we got. Our server was nice, but not attentive. Food was average, but I did enjoy the steamed fish entree. The spring rolls and fried pork wontons were just ok. With so many other choices in the area, we probably won’t go back.

    I celebrated my birthday here. Originally I had anticipated a much larger group, and Meredith was super helpful in finding a way to accommodating my party. I ended up reserving a table of 8 through OpenTable and we had a blast. Our server was friendly and gave us the proper amount of attention. We enjoyed the food! Loved the Hidden Gem cocktail. Definitely will be dining here again.

    My girlfriend and I went in for our anniversary having heard nice things and having set expectations. We were completely underwhelmed by the starting courses (which is the majority of the menu.) The entrees did have better flavor, but the meal as a whole was disappointing. The most creative and flavorful part of the evening were the cocktails, so take that as you will.

    The food was not the quality I was expecting. Shrimp starter was amazing. Sum share ribs and spring rolls were just okay. The smacked cucumbers were very good. The sea bass honestly tasted like tilapia - very bland and did not have the shape of a good sea bass Attentive service and interesting ambiance but disappointed the food did not meet expectations at all.

    Fine China has been a stop for me each time I go to Dallas, but our service this time was terrible. Our waiter was extremely rude, condescending and inattentive. He brought me a wine glass with a dead bug and blood smear on the side of it, and he was not apologetic when I pointed it out and asked for a new one (and he still charged me for it). At the end of our meal, we asked him for the dessert menu; after 45 minutes of him not coming back by, we had to ask another waitress for our check. I love the food and ambiance of Fine China, but I'm not sure I will be returning after this service. :(

    Place was empty but wanted to give it a go. Our Server was very personable and engaging. Great ambiance. Food was 'ok'. Pricey for the amount given. We had seen the 'dinner' menu when we were choosing restaurant so we were disappointed the Lunch menu was VERY VERY limited. (Wanted the duck). Our server did mention that the dishes would be served 'as they were ready so start eating...don't wait'..... but....3 main dishes came out at same time and the remaining 2? Literally, 25 to 30 minutes later. Our adult kids were done with their meals by then. Did I mention we were the only ones in the entire restaurant? Pork wontons and braised pork belly (very small portion) was very very good. Oddly, there were also 2 mosquitos that wouldn't leave our table though we were having fun trying to kill them. Most likely, will not return.

    The overall experience was pleasant and the waiter apologized for them being short staffed since management did not anticipate the number of customers on July 4th for dinner. Our dim sum was comped because of an oversight, too. The food was flavorful but a couple of the dishes were overpriced for the portions. The service was good when factoring in the lack of staff. We loved the overall retro decor and how they kept original feel of the hotel; however, the little corner with the plants needs some attention. The Christmas Poinsettia needs to be buried.

    I had a fantastic birthday dinner at Fine China! My husband and I enjoyed the garlic chili prawns at our server's recommendation, as well as scrumptious sea bass and pork belly with steamed bao buns (another recommendation from our server, I would not have thought to add to bao buns to the order but they were excellent!) We finished the night with a vanilla soft serve sundae with salted Miso caramel, very nostalgic and delicious. I will definitely return to try more from this exciting menu!

    Absolutely terrible service. Patrons were few and far between, as it was a Wednesday, but so were servers. Once we alerted our server that we had been waiting 10+ minutes for our three beers, we were blown off; when we couldn't find out waiter for another 10 minutes, we asked to speak to a manager but were told there were none on-site; the head cook kept screaming at other chefs in the open kitchen, etc. etc. When we finally got our food, it wasn't bad. The dim sum was fine and the pork belly was the one great item, but all three of the noodle dishes were swimming in oil and tasted bizarrely sweet. The two vegetarian dim sum items came out after all the other food, which was weird pacing. Such a shame -- this place is decorated well but will probably not last very long, due in large part to staff who clearly would rather be working anywhere else in the world.

    Our reservation was at 7 on Saturday - waiter told us Sold out of duck entree. Only reason we went to Fine China . Ordered another entree and they forgot it. Completely forgot to make the entree. Everyone at table had finished eating. Sat us in bar area even though we made a reservation a week in advance on open table. No waiter. Our waiter was the bar tender. Bad customer service. Disappointed for sure.

    Appetizers we had dumplings, ribs good; for dinner Soy Chicken with a side of garlic noodles; it was amazing. The skin was crispy and the meat was very moist and tender. I wanted the Cantonese duck but said they had ran out. The very kind waitress told me when making a reservation you can pre-order the duck. I’ll will be going back we all had a wonderful time.

    Fun alternative to everyday Chinese restaurants for celebrating adult birthday. Space is open, with lots of hard surfaces, so very loud-but our group of 3 was small enough to still be heard. Excellent chicken lettuce wraps, vegetable spring rolls just ok. Pork belly entree very good. Egg fried rice had an actual halved egg on top- fun twist.

    Fine China is a beautiful restaurant with descent Chinese fusion food. Unfortunately the service is subpar. I can only assume lack of training, constant turnover, and unimpressive restaurant management are some of the causes. As a "high end" and "fine dining", there was lack of anticipation from the server. Each server has his/her dedicated tables. Server B would be more than happy to fetch the server who is responsible for my table but would not accept my simple requests (e.g. large spoon, rice bowls, common serving utensils).

    We had a great dinner here. We are both vegetarian and were guided through the menu and shown all of our options and what modifications could be made. Everything we had was very good. We were celebrating my birthday and they comped our dessert, a burnt miso vanilla soft serve--simple and delicious. Our server was so helpful and friendly. Will definitely be back.

    Was so I’m impressed with our waitress who offered recommendations and provided excellent service. Even told us about the bars at the Statler to visit after dinner. Food was wonderful. Could have eaten a million pork wontons. Wish the chicken fried rice portion was larger. Carb omelette was a little greasy, but very good.

    The Wagyu beef was tough which I really hate when that happens. What I mustn’t realize is, that meat is rather tough since it’s SO lean!! I won’t order it again!! We loved our Sake and all the other food we had!!! The matre d saw us looking around the lobby so he offered to give us a tour of the place up to 19th floor so that was Very Wonderful!!!! I’ve been to Fine China twice now and loved both visits including seeing how lovely the Statler is!!!!
