Though the venue is beautiful and much of the food was superb, the Peking duck skin was flaccid and the service was poor. The first course selections were served abruptly and piled up on the small table for three. Awkward and rushed. Then the fish came without rice or vegetables and got stone cold before those sides finally arrived. Maitre D’ appeared only after the bill had been paid. He did offer complimentary dessert, but nothing compensates for an unprofessional wait staff.

Overall this was a very disappointing experience. I had heard of the restaurant and was excited to dine based on its reputation. The food was decent, but IMO not worth the price. The biggest disappointment was the service. We felt pressured to get the "dinner for two" option. It felt like a pressure sale to get the extended warranty. Then it felt like they were rushing us out. We ordered a few things and the main meal came out in about 2 mins and they the appetizers. We were not able to enjoy a few sips of our drinks and one meal came, so only one of us got to enjoy dinner. They the apps and 20 mins later the other meal. I am guessing this was once a great place with a "funky" vibe. I think its time has passed. Expensive meal that felt like we were at PF Changs. (actually their service is better)

We had a wonderful time! We were unfamiliar with the menu and the waitstaff was outstanding at explaining the price fixe offerings and at making recommendations for our selections. We have enjoyed eating Beijing Duck many times in Beijing. This was our first time ordering this is New York. The food was beautifully presented, perfectly prepared, and delicious. We are already looking forward to our next visit.

I am a vegetarian and have been eating at Mr Chow for the past 20 years. My dinner last night was terrible. Dumplings came out and chewy, scallion pancakes and cucumber smelled of fish oil and fish sauce. The entrees came out cold.

An outstanding place to eat and as always the food was excellent! Unfortunately the place was extremely noisy and crowded due to graduations. We loved the crispy beef, the vermicelli with lobster and the gambless duck. We have been coming to Mr. Chow for over 25 years and it has always been very good

Not a good experience. The food was tasteless and overpriced. The service was fair at best. We felt rushed. The special occasion was a birthday and the whole experience was such a let down. Would not recommend this restaurant unless you want to spend a large sum of money for less than average food.
