Food very good especially the Peking Duck. Service was basically non existent. After plates were cleared, we waited 35 minutes and decided to get up. Someone said good night and we replied that we needed to pay our bill. $500 bill and NO service. Terrible experience but delicious food. With so many great options in NYC, no reason to recommend this restaurant or return.

Everything and everyone from start to finish was professional and lovely. It was a special night, and all was well executed and wonderful. The Peking duck was excellent. Thank you for making a special night so much better!

Really a bad experience: noodles were not good, the meat was better but not enough to justify a bill of 195 Dollars. And please note we just had one glass of wine.

They let us reserve a table at 11 and then once we got there, said the kitchen closed at 11:30 and rushed us through the whole dinner. Rude servers, rushed us the whole time. Don’t let someone book a reservation that late if you’re going to rush them through the meal and not let them enjoy the experience.

Food as always very good especially the Peking Duck. Service was a little off this time with waiter refilling wine glass not with our wine, but someone else's less expensive wine. That said, our group had fun and we'll come back.

The service men were not attentive. They serviced the table next to mine that arrived 15 minutes after us. They continued to bump into our seats, neglected beverage refills, and rushed to take plates off of the table.

I’ve never had worse or more expensive Chinese food in my life. We ordered the specialty Ma Mignon medium rare, and it arrived bloody rare and unedible. The worst service I’ve ever experienced. We had to ask 3 different waiters for the check and waited about 20 minutes. The tables are tiny and cramped, and it’s so noisy we couldn’t hear each other. This is a restaurant to be seen at, and nothing else. The food at Panda Express is so much better! Will never return.

Amazing experience. Outstanding food and impeccable service.
We come regularly to Mr.Chow 57th Street. Tried Mr. Chow Tribeca. Not the same.
Mr. Chow 57th is always the best. A classic.

We arrived early and expressed concern over our cramped table. The server declined to move us—but the hostess immediately sat two four-tips with couples. Plenty of space for them. I was bumped or kicked by servers on the order of 30 times. Dumplings were at best average. Would not recommend this venue.

The food was fine, but not worth the 200% premium.
Dumplings were surprisingly average.
Restaurant was surprisingly loud, and we were disrupted by 4 separate serenading's of happy birthday... Felt like I was at a chuck e cheese.

Pretty bummed as this was our 5 year anniversary.

I booked in as a solo diner during Restaurant Week … Nowhere did I see that it was for two people . So unfortunately I had to order off the main menu . So instead of $42 for dinner it was over $100 with tip ! Very disappointed as I had always wanted to visit this restaurant, but as it was very busy I don’t think that they will notice that I am not coming back .

Food was good and served rather quickly; Awesome deal for restaurant week. However, the real reason I would return would be because of the service. From the moment after we spoke with the hostess the service was A+. The level of engagement and attentiveness of the staff is something most restaurants could stand to a page out of Mr. Chows. Overall wonderful dining experience. Will return!
