Overbooked. Did not seat us on time. When asked how long was told by manager "We'll do our best. Don't know. Might be better to come back another night". So left.

We have been guests for some 30 years. It was always a lively place and the food is delicious.
However, over times management does not live up to the standards.
Last Saturday, it was crowded with both rooms on the ground floor very busy und a private party upstairs.
The noise was unbearable, the guests were yelling at each other and above all there was loud music played.

Very unpleasant. No conversation possible across the table.

The service or the kitchen, I don’t know who is 5he culprit, was not up to it.
We ordered each a starter. A first starter was served, a second starter came 20 minutes later.
The water of the finger bowl was warm and then removed and the finger bowls for the duck were ice cold. A detail, sure, but an important one.
Not sure I will make it again !

Delicious ...the food is a favorite . I love eating their food. Nowhere else has the flavors and combination of tastes like Mr. Chow. Is it expensive? Absolutely. Is the service ...good not really. The portions are small so do not hesitate to over order. I did not love the desserts.

Very disappointing. Food quality was uneven, and the service was bad, everything from not responding to customers all the way to forgetting about orders - we got one of our sides after the meal was finished!!
And the place is packed like sardines - how is this not a fire hazard. We really did not get why this place is considered so good - no one in the tables around us seemed to be happy either!

We love the ambience here but nothing else about it is great. In the past, service was great, very engaged and efficient, last night service was not good. The food is tasty but wildly overpriced. Having been here before, we knew that but didn’t mind because the service and ambience were worth paying for. Don’t think I’ll go back based on last night. Outrageous price to pay for being ignored (also seated 1/2 hour past reservation time, which is no big deal if everything else is good but ... )

the restaurant in general was fine, the food was very good, but the tables are very close to each other, what is uncomfortable because you cannot talk with calmness, I went with my wife we ​​were anniversary and we felt very uncomfortable to be Very similar to other tables and mobility is also difficult to access the months or go to the bathroom to give an example.

I heard this was a definite dining spot to check out while visiting LA but honestly would not recommend. Food was fine, nothing amazing and felt like we were at a fast food restaurant. Servers were taking orders quickly and rushing around as if to get you in and out as soon as possibly. For the first course we ordered the chicken satay and it came out raw so we had to send it back. The server was not apologetic at all and made it seem like it was us. Told us he would ask for it to be “well done” Really! You need to specify well done for chicken! For the price, you could get better food in LA for sure! Don’t bother with the hype and check somewhere else!

Never in my life time I been here and got ignored thru all the course of food And food was good but I was expecting the regular menu to order the stuff I normally order that was the main reason to come but I couldn’t and it was was just horrible all around. Pretty much paid 300$ to be ignored. The only thing that did it’s job was the napkin.

We go every year for one meal. It’s a Hollywood stable and kitsch but fun, and kind of a bucket list light check mark meal. However this time it was faded glory. A bit messier. A bit more random. A bit less tidy, less shiny, less special. It’s HOLLYWOOD heyday charm has sadly diminished, and if I’m going to spend $1000 on a meal for four in the future I will try somewhere new, and let my fond memories of Mr Chows remain like it, in the past.

Normally, Mr Chows is one of my absolute favorite LA restaurants. However, we decided to go on Valentine’s Day. What an unmitigated disaster. Top to bottom one of the worst dinning experiences I’ve had living in LA.
- Hip hop music blasting from speakers. I love hip hop, but not at max level while I’m trying to have a romantic dinner and conversation.
- The price fix menu was atrocious and missing all but one or two of chows signature dishes. I am not price sensitive. Normally, an evenings tab at Chow is in the $400-$500 range... tonight was only $275 but I never felt so ripped off.
- Nearly all the plates were served cold... meaning they were sitting back in the kitchen pre made and just being served cafeteria style. Not acceptable for a restaurant of this caliber.
- The wait staff showed literally zero interest in serving and getting them to do basic things like deliver soy sauce, salt or refill a soda was painful and required long waits. The minute the waiter saw that we weren’t going to run a huge alcohol tab, he basically lost all interest. Also, he was not even remotely willing to make any effort to accommodate any of our dietary needs.
- We had food wrapped to go home... why Im not sure, but if we didn’t insist on them returning it to our table, they would’ve let us leave without it. At the same time, they were super pushy about giving us a free rose that looked downright sickly. Literally no effort or thought was put into any of this.

We live in BH and are used to the attitude at Chows and normally, we are fine with it. It’s an institution, but tonight, it was more institutional. It felt like eating in a cafeteria. Further, it felt like an anti-customer appreciation night... we are going to just show up, serve cold food and hope we can squeeze some alcohol dollars.

We haven’t gone to a restaurant on Valentine’s Day in 10+
Years specifically because we know this is how many restaurants behave on days like this and now chows has reconfirmed this view.

Didn’t know it was a preset menu. The duck was overcooked and cold. I usually love Mr. Chow, just not on holidays I guess.
