We had a reservation yet we had to wait 45 minutes to be seated and got not even the smallest apology
Service was slow and almost rude starting with hostess al the way through the waitress
It was a busy night so that might explain some of the delays but the does not justify the way they handle the crowd
I was hoping for more but thankfully the food and ambience didn’t disappoint
Fantastic food, horrific service. Dishes were not coursed out and beers from the bar took an insanely long time. Get ready to scarf or have cold food. My boyfriend changed his mind on getting sake for himself but two were still brought out--and were on our bill. Such a shame.
Absolutely loved the food! Everything we had was amazing, the trout full of flavor and so soft and buttery that it dissolved in the mouth! My only comment is on the ambience who does not feel like a Chinese restaurant at all. Lighting is super bright and uncomfortable, it makes you feel like you’re at a fast casual food place. This does not do the wonderful food any justice!
Amazing food!!! Love the atmosphere.
Dumplings and cocktails were my favorite. Vallet at the hotel was terrible.
I rarely write a bad review but in this case, I was thoroughly disappointed. They need some serious help. Their attempts at creativity fail.
I had the Peking Duck which was not too bad but I am used to it being served with Crepes not buns, I did not know what to do.
The hoisin sauce was poor and they brought 4 spears of cucumber and scallions i needed to keep asking for more. The Chinese broccoli was
Inedible and so on. They currently have a 4.3 star rating it should be lower
The service was very good. The menu is a bit limited. We wished there were a few more options, especially in the noodle section. Perhaps a noodle that allows you to add a protein? We enjoyed the lettuce wraps as a shared appetizer. The noodle dishes were good but a bit high in sodium. Not necessarily a comment on the restaurant, but the Statler desperately needs to improve its valet. We waited almost 30 minutes for our car. They need more people working, especially during peak times.
The service was great and so was the Food , if you are looking for a Great Dining Experience, this is it .
I took a client to Fine China earlier in the week for lunch. It was fantastic. It was very quiet, so we were able to easily speak (and be heard) without shouting and the food was absolutely delicious.
Might be the best peking duck I've ever eaten. Luckily, our waiter secured us a half duck as they have limited availability during evenings only. We got the last one. The food exceeded my expectations, and very few Chinese restaurants in Dallas do that.
Horrible!!!!!!! Booked for thanksgiving...the day before we got a message to confirm our reservation. Confirmed...then showed up at Fine China and it was closed. No one called to tell us that it was closed nor did they notify open table. With limited choices on thanksgiving day we were not happy and will not be returning to try it.
Booked because it showed as being open for Thanksgiving and fought through Downtown Dallas Thanksgiving Turkey Run and once I arrived with my family, CLOSED!!!
The fried rice dish and the fish (se bass) were very good. The rest so-so. The steamed rice was underdone, with rather hard grains. We were annoyed that our orders (4 people) were not brought all at once, but staggered. At one point we had steamed rice with nothing to eat it with.
The ambiance is wonderful, especially when you sit at the tables by the street, as we did, and also when you walk out into the beautiful hotel lobby.
The beat of the music was not loud but annoying nonetheless.
Eaten here 2 times and both times the service was great. Food was completely different and tasty. Overall great place for a date or celebration.
Interesting take on higher end Asian cuisine. Excellent beef and several interesting Dim Sum options. The menu is fairly limited, and it would have been nice to have more menu options. The service was efficient and personable. The donuts and soft serve salted caramel ice cream for dessert was amazing!
The Sunday lunch was burned and was too salty. Not what we expected at all.
Should have listened to the reviews regarding the poor service here. It was so bad that our party of 4 left after waiting for 15 minutes for someone to take our cocktail & appetizer order. It was Halloeeen night, so the restaurant wasn’t busy. We were seated, served water and that was it. The host that seated us wished us “a great evening!” as we we walked out-— never even occurred to him that he had just seated us 15 minutes prior and that there might have been a problem. Shame because we wanted to try something new. Would not recommend this place to anyone.
This has recently opened. They are still working out some kinks, but the food was very good
It was our first visit. We asked the waitress to feed us and she totally took over. Her selections were fantastic. Amazing night.
From the decor to the cocktails and to the food - everything was great. The food was delicious and numerous times did our table say “wow, this is so good! Would totally come back here again!” Unfortunately, 2 of our top picks of dim sums were sold out but we made up for it in other places. Love the family style sharing since everything sounded so good, I wouldn’t have been able to pick just one.
Fine China is a great looking place in an awesome location (check out rooftop terrace). However, the service was slow and not very knowledgeable. The food was ok, nothing memorable. I would only return for a drink at the bar and a couple of appetizers.
Service was poor and food was hit or miss. Duck, dumplings, and shrimp all great. The rest of the items we had were sub-par. The layout of the restaurant was disjointed. It felt like three different venues. The bar in the middle disrupted the flow.
I had the Cantonese Duck. It was outstanding. A little expensive but I look forward to my birthday, when I can go back and order it again.
The food was quite frankly awful! We were very excited about an upscale Chinese restaurant opening but this was a huge let down. Both mains we ordered (a soy chicken and the way go staek) were way too salty and lacking in any other flavor, almost inedible. The spring rolls were fine but nothing to get too excited about. The only thing that was fairly decent were the spicy shrimp they serve as an appetizer, but I think it needed some sort of sauce to dip in to make them really worth it. Overall the place is ok looking though I’m not sure if what they are really trying for is a bar, not fine dining Chinese.
Our waiter had quite the attitude towards us. He disappeared when we ordered drinks for a long time, didn’t ask us if there was anything else we wanted before bringing the check...clearly he was done with us. Not impressed.
Our server Michelle was excellent. Loved everything. The manager totally blew it. We returned a $48 steak entree because it was served cold. They brought back the same dish heated up with half if the steak missing. I told the manager and he said I am sorry we will take 50% of the charge off of your check, really what a clown.
From the great service at Valet to the end is the meal, the service was incredible. Good was amazing. Was surprised they were out of the steam buns (that we were dying to try) at 6:45 pm on a Friday.
We were underwhelmed by Fine China. We arrived excited to try a variety of the dishes people talk about... duck, soup dumplings, etc. but they were out of everything. On a Wednesday. We tried to order four different menu items, each of which they did not have, before our waiter went back to the kitchen to confirm what they DID have available. Once the food arrived, it was nothing to write home about. The flavors were as expected - good but not great. The presentation was nice but not spectacular. Our waiter was not very attentive either - he rarely popped by to check on us and we had to flag him down to get the check. Overall, both my husband and I feel like we ate there twice in one night: the first and the last time.
Excellent service and polite staff. Food and drinks were great. Food enough for 2 if you are not hungry. Highly recommendable.
Had a large party and staff accommodated in one of the private rooms. Service did not suffer a single bit.
Amazing food! Prawns, ribs, crispy wonton, dan dan, everything was fantastic!!!
This was one of the worst dining experiences I’ve had all year. The food is costly, so expectations for service are high. Our waitress seemed to know absolutely nothing about the menu, and the restaurant was out of 2/3 of the items on the menu, even though it was Friday night at 8 pm. No one should ever eat here.
We came for the Bao. It was sold out at 5:45 pm on Friday. Everything was a disappointment after that news. The rest of the food was ok. Not great. Not bad. It wouldn't say our meal was "Fine China" it was more "Everyday dishes".
We loved it the food was amazing and Thank Goodness for Miranda who helped us order, all of her recommendations were so good . She was great and we will all be returning. We had a Great Birthday Celebration for our Friend.
Had a great experience here to celebrate a birthday and ladies lunch! Christian our server was wonderful and had great suggestions on what order from drinks to dishes. Everything tasted wonderful. The entire staff was great and went above and beyond for us! Can’t wait to come back again!
The noise level was high, and the food was interesting but not a meal we would go back for. We had a very nice server, and the staff was very friendly.
Per our server's suggestion, we tried the crab omelette. It is definitely not something that sounds great on paper and I would have never ordered it otherwise, but wow were we glad she suggested it. It was my favorite out of the several dishes we ordered.
The food was great! We had brussels sprouts, shishito peppers and crispy pork wontons for the appetizer and they were amazing. For our main entrees we had the flat noodle dish, which was a little on the salty side but still good. I'd definitely recommend the place.
First time for us, but strikingly good food on every aspect.
Would highly recommend.
We had such a fun evening, food and service were wonderful. Our party had the tea cup room and it was lovely. It was our 1st time to the Statler for all 7 of us, we will plan a return! As a travel agent, I will definitely be recommending
