    Mr. Chow is a Chinese restaurant for expensive fine dining. A visit there must be treated like a steakhouse dinner. You know upfront it will be costly. Google tells you so. Expect great food calibrated to the Western taste, flawless service, comfortable if close seating and a pleasant vibe of NewYorkers out for a good time and having it and you will be completely satisfied.

    Surprisingly excellent experience. Green prawns are far better than they sound. There is Peking Duck for one but it’s called something else. Wonderful champagne - wines by the glass could be improved. But service was great and the food was outstanding.

    They could have it all with that setting and historical cache and legion of staff (plus the showstopping performance of the chef making noodles while the dining room falls to a hush), but the food and wine just were not up to snuff for this price point.

    Very overrated restaurant! The food was “OK,” but frankly, PF Chang’s tastes WAY better for a lot less money and much more comfortable seating. Also, our dinner was interrupted by some kind of weird noodle-making show, where the chef came out of the kitchen, the ambient music stopped, the waiters all froze in place, the the restaurant suddenly became silent as we were all forced to watch a 10 minute live demonstration of Chinese noodle making. WEIRD AND UNCOMFORTABLE!! Why the f&@$ would anyone who doesn’t make Chinese noodles want to watch that? Also, isn’t that what YouTube is for? Do I really need my dinner interrupted by this nonsense? Frankly this restaurant is for pretentious snobs who like to believe their getting something special, while they’re really just getting over-priced mediocre Chinese food at a place to see and be seen. Ugh. Dinner for two, with tip, was $335.08, and that was with only one cocktail for my wife (I drank water). At Joe’s Stone Crab in Miami Beach, I don’t mind paying that much. Any Ruth’s Chris restaurant? No problem. But Mr. Chow’s? I don’t think so. But if they got rid of the noodle making show, had more comfortable chairs, and maybe had some more traditional items on the menu (like General Tso’s chicken, egg rolls, or hot and sour soup, for example), I would add a couple of stars.

    Food is always outstanding with the green shrimp, sea bass, and a new tofu dish all particularly amazing. Our waiter was a true professional, guiding us perfectly through the right amount of food selections so we left the table totally satisfied, but without wasting a lot of food. Chef hand tossing noodles was a lovely added spectacle. This is a New York landmark dining location and a must for a trip to the city. Can't wait to get back!

    The restaurant was crowded at 8:30 when we arrived and the clientele was not as beautiful and star-studded as it was in the past (last time we dined there, Paul McCartney was at the next table), but the service was personal and personable, the food delicious, as always, the room attractive. Only negative was the constant dance music. Order the gambler's duck!

    The food was delicious. The waiter could have explained the options more clearly. He seemed a little annoyed with us. We had to keep asking for him, since he disappeared. My daughters food came out later then ours and we had to ask for it. Perhaps they forgot it.

    I took my parents for my mom’s bday. It’s not what it used to be but it is a nice experience. The food was average. The waitstaff were friendly, helpful and professional. . They did the noodle show which was cute. They remembered my mom’s. birthday which was really nice.I read some reviews that said they did not remember. My parents enjoyed which was most important.
