MR CHOW - 57th Ratings and Reviews
The service was great, absolutely no complaints. The staff were friendly and accommodating. It was my husbands birthday. We had a table of six. Mr chows allowed us to have a bday cake dropped off and after dinner they surprised my husband with it and even included candles. The entire room sang happy birthday to him. It was enjoyable, warm, friendly and inviting. The food was also fresh and delicious. The room was a little small but the atmosphere was comfortable.
A terrific New Year's Eve party. We chose the late seating - 9:30 and were treated to a delicious holiday meal including lobster and filet mignon and jade dumplings (for celebration) and Mr. Chow's Noodles (for longevity). This place still exudes 1980's energy and attitude and the DJ playing mashups of disco and electronic music kept us moving all night!
My friend and I have a tradition of celebrating his bday in NY and we will dine at Mr Chow’s. The staff is always very professional and accommodating. Only thing that I didn’t appreciate was that the Maitre D allowed us in before 6 pm due to the severe cold and the blonde hostess seemed to have an issue with it. She reprimanded him for allowing us in less than 10 minutes before and it was extremely rude of her to do it where the guests were able to hear her.
Extremely Over priced for the tiny portions, you will leave hungry after spending a few hundred dollars. Wait staff not friendly at all and seemed bothered the whole time. This location of Mr Chows is no longer the great place that it used to be. Go to the downtown Mr Chows if you need to go to one.
The food is reliably good. HOWEVER, there is a tall blonde male waitor that I have had the unfortunate experience of having on several occasions. Unlike the great waiters that I always have in the LA location, this waitor is a liar and manipulator with the intent of driving up the price of the check. In LA, I am used to telling the waitor exactly what ee want to order and then he figures out based on what we want if the pre fixe or a la carte is a better value. The New York blonde waitor constantly lies. For example, he convinced my husband that based on what he wanted the pre fixe would be a better value. However, at the end of the meal, we were charged extra because his particular chicken dish wasn’t included among the pre fixe choices. (Which the waitor failed to mention and isn’t indicated on the menu). Additionally if one person orders a side of vegetables then even if it’s only that one person eating them, everyone at the table will be charged $8.00 a person for the side wheather they took a bite or not (unless everyone at the table orders a pre fixe). The food at Mr Chow is delicious however if you don’t want to eat the huge quantity of food included in the pre fix then it is MUCH easier to order and know exactly what you are being charged for at Philippe which is equally as good food and near by on East 60th Street. Additionally, you don’t have to deal with the annoying chords located at each Mr Chow table used to illuminate a center light in the table. We eat at 5 star restaurants a minimum of twice a week and often more however I don’t want to be pressured to order more food then I want or conned about the price.
Mr. Chow used to be one of my all-time favorite places. The food is not as good as it used to be, and the portions are minuscule. Especially considering the prices. Disappointing. Not going back. Try Shin Lee Palace instead.
We had a wonderful evening at Mr. Chow. The food is great and the service is even better. You must have a reservation. We were seated on time, but had arrived a bit early for our dinner. The bar area is small but very welcoming. The menu is great, and the waiters will help you decide if you are unsure of what to order. For sure, order the Mr. Chow noodles. We watched them being made in the dining room later in the evening, as a demonstration. We enjoyed our meal and did not feel rushed at all. It was busy but still cozy for us at our table for two. Lots of fun and a great evening.
