Going to NYC, this is always on our list. On our last trip we went twice. Food is always excellent, and service is professional.

The only hiccup was that I had ordered a liter of sparking water for me and my wife and tap for the kids. A server refilled our kids’ glasses with sparkling before we could stop him. He took one away, left the other on the table. Did not replace the bottle and charged us for it anyway. Minor, but very poor form for a restaurant of this standing.

Over pricey. Microwaveable stuff. Told me the champagne was free n charged me later at $22 per glass. Forget it. I cooked better than mr chow. Will never be there again.

We have been eating in Mr. Chow for many many years both in New York and Los Angeles and have always enjoyed it as a wonderful and festive experience. The food has been uneven at times but lately they are really seemed to have found their culinary groove. We've had some excellent meals recently and truly professional and attentive service. A great experience that we recommend heartily.

The food is spectacular - the oysters, vermicelli with lobster, the box dumplings, my favorites and they never fail to be yummy! My friends all love the steak dishes. It's such a cool place, great vibe and yes, Angie up front, we all love you too!

Mr. Chow's was a wonderful experience. The service was outstanding, the food was probably the best Chinese I've had. Although it was a bit pricey, it was worth every penny. We will definitely be returning for special occasions.

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.

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.

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.
