Not Chinese food
First clue: tables set with forks. Soup dumplings and potstickers quite mediocre. Steamed sea bass and fiery beef without flavor. Terrific service, but not good enough to make up for food.

Our dinner was delicious and the entire dining experience was superb. If would have also been nice if they asked if we celebrating anything special...It was my birthday and we were so swept up in the moment we forgot to mention it. I would like to see a few more interesting vegetarian options on the menu, since by boyfriend is vegetarian. My favorite dishes include the Ma Migon, Blue Crab, Green Shrimp and the Chicken Satay is a must try.

The food was amazing and I really liked the decor. Service was attentive except they were pulling plates away before we even finished chewing. A little pricey. I would return and it would be fun with another couple or group.

I have been a client of Mr. Chow for at least 30 years at least. The crispy beef was all but crispy! Being crispy is part of the taste. The gamblers duck came to the table much colder than normal. The pancakes have become smaller. The greens were not tasty. The chicken satay was good and also the squab with lettuce.

Fue una experiencia extraña. El restaurante tiene atención muy amable y profesional, pero su interiorismo evoca remotamente la cultura china. Los precios muy elevados para la calidad de los platos que probamos.

Went for NYC Restaurant week. Got there a little before 6 for a 6:00 reservation and the doors were not yet open. But they opened right at 6:00 and I was first person in. Suggested the music was a little loud and the floor manager lowered it right away with a smile!! Water brought to table as well as drink menu until my friend arrived. The food and cocktails were wonderful, the portions substantial for restaurant week where some places create bite plates. As we were leaving I complimented the floor manager on a wonderful and thoughtful job....and got a hug, and a little dance. Left with a sated appetite and stars in my eyes. Will definitely be back.

Honestly, a disappointing experience. We had 4 different dishes and none of them were “wow”, some were lackluster. The Mr Chow Noodles for example were particularly mediocre, and you can get a better version down the street at Mee’s Noodles for like $10. For the price point and hype that this restaurant has, we were let down.

Additionally, we went for our 1 year anniversary and never had it acknowledged despite indicating it on the reservation.

I’ve been to a lot of upscale restaurants but this by far is my best yet. The environment was so welcoming especially to people of color. The staff were amazing. Since my party and I walked in, the staff were so accommodating. We had an amazing night. The food and ambience were spectacular.
