We went there on a sunday and the guy manager was very annoying tryna do the most, but completely different experience when we went today, we felt unbothered and so welcomed by the two girls, the hostess and the other manager who walked us to a very nice corner table and she was so pleasant and the rest of the staff was amazing just like last time.

The food is steadily excellent. But for this price range, drinks should be either cheaper or portion bigger. It's the only restaurant that you have to order double portions, otherwise it's just a couple of sips.

Loved the food and service. The Peking duck pancakes were exceptional. Chef making noodles demonstration was also amazing and worth the price. Expensive but worth it for great food. Felt like a James Bond movie!

Excellent food and environment and although wait staff slow off the mark as had to ask for drink menu and drinks came toward end of first course they warmed up and finished strong. Food was excellent and plenty two course meal and left stuffed with no room for desert. And the mojito ordered top rate and strong.

I've dined at Mr Chow out Las Vegas and it was breath taking. The atmosphere, food, wine, cold beer with a FIJI water served me right. I would definitely recommend this place to family and friends. Thanks for the experience! Also Miguel the manager was awesome he will cater to your needs quick. Give him a raise he deserve it.

Most disappointing - the Upper east side location is a great room but the service
does nothing to disguise the food which
is equivalent to a local Chinese restaurant.
Duck was dry, as were the pork ribs. The chicken satay was so bizarre, I almost didn't want to eat it.
A complete waste of money, way too overpriced.

Wanted to have Peking Duck but you had to order it for 3 persons at $68 each. Ordered the 4-color cauliflower but it I can make it at home and have it taste better. Crispy beef was good. House noodles was good but nothing to rave about.

Service is grand and decor lovely. The flags hanging from ceiling are beautiful.
However the food was overall a C, shrimp appetizer very good, duck main course good, not great and steak main course not worth ordering. It is very expensive and overrated.

Overall this was a nice place. The food was excellent, however, the portions are EXTREMELY small. I would not recommend this location if you are dining with an infant as the retail space is also fairly small. The staff was friendly and very attentive.

Been coming to Chow's for years and the meal is always spot on. Squab, dumplings, Green prawns are classic staples that can't be missed. But to be an honest review on this night our service was below par. Waiter was borderline rude and charged us for a price fixed meal that wasn't offered or explained. We were even charged for a late guest who didn't par take in any appetizers and only had a filet migon. Like I said food is spot on just beware for what I felt was a way to pad the bill. They got me once not the next time.

Very good but a mixed bag. Chinesque food was very good--we had the "Beijing duck semi-fixed prix fixe." Service was attentive but not intrusive--no chat or self-introductions. But the restaurant is very noisy, with voices competing to reach the stars. Oddities: chopsticks are optional, Chinese tea seems an odd request, and deserts are Black Forest cake and lemon meringue pie. But overall, very good. I will visit again.

Mr. Chow provides a unique dinner experience with an incredible interior and luxurious ambience. The food was incredible, especially their Sea Bass dish that melts in your mouth. Albeit being a bit overpriced compare to what is offered at Buddakan, Mr. Chow still offers an additional option for a nice dinner date.
