Decor could use some updating. Still looks like the 80s when I was in high school! But food was great and service was outstanding!!!!
Expensive food. Noisy place. Very cramped.
Long wait for table much later than reservation time
Really good food. Excellent service. Overpriced.
If you'd like to go to dinner with the worst kind of rich people, go to Mr. Chow. This is a trump-ests wet dream. The food is over priced, the drinks are made with no care and the service is terrible. It looks like the owners/managers are stuck in 90s era new york where you could get away with anything by just being snobby. That being said, if youre willing to pay triple what you should, the food is genuinely good.
Food was great. However, it was a bit noisy.
Excellent. Food, service, atmosphere - everything is spectacular. A family favorite.
We had dinner in Mr. Chow's Beverly Hills location and while being noisy the food was really excellent and we decided to try the NYC location on 57th street. We order 2 of the dishes we had in Beverly Hills, Shrimp with Walnuts and gamblers duck. In Beverly Hills the shrimp dish was crisp and flavorful and in NY it was limp and lacked the sauces. The duck in NY was dry and mushy while in Beverly Hills it was crisp and tender. The service in NY was rush rush with the main course coming a little after the appetizers came. It made for a very unpleasant dinner. With all the great Chinese food in NY, don't waste you evening here
Food honestly is not good, especially for the price. It’s a scene so if you like that go for it.
Attention to the details are very important. My wife and I each ordered a main and a side, they charged for 2 bowls of rice and 2 steamed vegetables although we only had 1 of each. There excuse was it’s a minimum of 2 of each although we o my got 1 of each. It was simple for me NO TIP!! Wouldn’t go back very misleading.
Stunning restaurant with unbelievable service standard. These guys know how to run a restaurant. So good we went two days in a row!!
Not your typical neighborhood Chinese food restaurant. Food is a little cleaner (lighter not so heavy) and the restaurant is upscale. Expensive - but then the neighborhood is expensive too.
Definitely overpriced for the food, but so fun! Great for a celebration!
Incredibly busy restaurant, but very friendly staff. Food was excellent! I'd recommend it to anyone who doesn't mind a crowd and some noise.
I've never written a review for a restaurant, but my recent experience dining at Mr. Chow was so horrible, I feel compelled to say something. I had dined at this location over 10 years ago and the experience has entirely changed. At our recent meal, the service was completely erratic -- at least four different waiters in a flurry coming to our table at confusing times -- the food inedible (dumplings tasted as if they had been frozen, defrosted, then panfried), scallion pancakes tasted of undercooked donut pastry, and soup dumplings contained no soup, but instead a stiff miscellaneous filling attributed to pork (or at least we believe it was pork) -- and the surrounding environment was incredibly... strange. Loud music, furniture moving above our heads, food getting thrown down at our table in a messy rush on old faded plates and silver. All of this was so disappointing as what was once a posh environment for a sophisticated meal has turned into a frenzied night club of defrosted dumplings over loud music and expensive cocktails. Clearly this is a case of a once successful restaurant getting by on the coat-tails of what it once was. Do not go here.
we had Peking Duck for six people. Inexplicable it came with so many appetizers -none of them very good- it was hard to imagine how we would eat out duck.
The Duck was sliced as if my a hatchet- the fat was not rendered nor were there slices of crispy skin. What a total disappointment especially because of the rave reviews
The attention was exceptional!!!
Everything was spectacular
Mr Chow is consistent all over the world and never disappoints!
Fixed menu, far too many tables, gave me the impression of being in an overly expensive Chinese take away
Visiting NYC for the first time and booked in to Mr Chow for valentines, the ambiance was fabulous and the food was outstanding. Although it was a set menu for valentines it did not disappoint. The mood was happy and the waiters and service was impeccable.
Great place very elegant and professional employees made us feel very comfortable
There was no mention of pre fix menu when we made reservations. So ended up having very limited vegetarian food.
This is why it is a privilege to eat at Mr. chow
The food was good (very authentic according to our Chinese friends), the service was attentive, but the pricing was very strange. We ordered four appetizers, four entrees and three side dishes (for four adults and two children). The price for the most expensive combination of appetizer and main course was less than the fixed price menu price - but when the bill came we had been charged for five fixed price meals. In all it probably cost us 30% more than we thought we would be paying ordering a la carte. No-one explained this upfront, so the bill was a bit of a shocker. Be warned.
the food was horrible and the space was terrible.
Service was wonderful , food “super”delicious and a wonderful atmosphere...best ever
Great duck - great lobster dumplings.
We enjoyed food service & whole experience. The best for me were the pork dumplings & my husband loved the duck. We have not experienced such good Chinese food in a long timr
The food is spectacular. Crispy beef and chicken satay are divine. Fish dumplings are yummy. Staff is lovely. Host is very good at his job. A little loud and crowded but worth it
this is a awesome restaurant. I enjoyed my visit and will definitely return.
Mr. Chow is the best!!!
I had a good experience the ambiance was nice. I had a 9pm reservation, but I had to wait a lil while. I don’t see the point of a reservation if you have to wait more than 10-15 mins. Besides the wait I had a great time!
The food us oh so very good and I plan on returning. However we felt very rushed by the staff, though friendly, but rushed nevertheless.
Went for Restaurant Week with some friends!!!Food and service were impeccable! Expected nothing less !!! Love Mr Chow!!!
I tried this famous Chinese restaurant with the restaurant week menu at a Friday evening. It’s not a typically Chinese restaurant. When I walked into the place, I felt it’s a steak house. The food is good not for me as a Chinese guest. Tasted like Panda Express. Very noisy and crowded. Very disappointed.
I believe everything was great until the end if the night when the waiter drop sauce onto my pants and jacket while clearing the things from the table. Now, i have an unexpected cleaners in which could have been avoided had he been a little less clumsy.
Desapointing, the only nice thing is watching the udon pasta being made...
Sevice very rushed,all food served at once , no room to move anything on the table ... the duck we order was soo dry and looked like it was done few days ago....was much better few years ago ... like....1984....
I try to eat at Mr. Chow's at least once a year. The food is always delicious, the service is fast and the the staff was pleasant and attentive.
