Mr. Chow - Malibu Ratings and Reviews
The food and service were outstanding. Having eaten at the Mr. Chow in NYC, I can say the service was just as good. The food was also of the same quality. We had the duck and everything was perfect. I was worried after having read some of the reviews of this location. But we found it to be a fabulous experience!!
Me Chow has very a nice Chinese menu and the service and setting are great. HOWEVER, the prices are absolutely outrageous! $41 for a small a la carte plate of what is essentially orange chicken?! $17.50 for a bowl of steamed rice! The tab for my family of four was $340 before tip. This was for four appetizers and three entrees. My wife had one glass of wine and I had one beer. Crucifyingly expensive for food that is marginally superior to what we would get at PF Chang's. If you want a nice dinner in the Country Mart, I would stick with one of the other options if you care at all about value for money.
I remember that the New York location fondly. This Malibu location, though beautiful on the inside ( it's located in a strip mall) was ridiculously over priced for the food they are serving. The table service was spot on and I feel like we ordered correctly , based on servers recommendations. The food began to arrive little by little, and I mean the actual entrees came randomly throughout the dinner. There flat water was $20 bottles of Fiji water which of course they failed to mention. It was extremely quiet that night to the point of concern....Thursday night in Malibu? Overall , probably better to get a drink at the bar and skip the food. The local Chinese in Del Mar has far better menu items with flavor far beyond Mr Chows. It's like they purposefully made the food bland for their locals. It's a shame.
Horrible and abusive service. Complained to the GM who was even more insulting. Several guests were stunned by the staff abuse. Perfect combination of arrogance and incompetence. Avoid (unless you like to pay handsomely for abusive service).
My husband and I went to Mr Chow's for restaurant week. We had high expectations. Boy, were we disappointed. Bland Chinese food if you could call it Chinese. We ordered the Mr. Chow noodles which were over cooked and pork ribs as an appetizer. The noodles looked like spaghetti with meat sauce with a sesame flavor. The ribs were horrible. They were like jerky, extremely dry and tasted terrible. We had to send them back. Our entrees had very little Asian flavor and were bland. The portions were very small for the price. I don't know how they stay in business serving this pricy and awful food.
From the moment we arrived until the time we left, we were cared for - in the seating, in the impeccable and inconspicuous service, in the exquisite and creative cuisine, and in the privacy to enjoy the company of one another. If we won the lottery (although the prix fixe menu is a great value), it would be a weekly treat - for an occasion, it should be at the top of your list of gastronomic delights to savor, to remember.
This was an overall terrible experience. My family and friends (party of 5) went here for a going away party before I moved to Vietnam. We never had one consistent server and no one knew who to take care of our table. We never got asked if we would like refills or a second round of drinks and our glasses just sat empty on the table. Our food took more than an hour to get delivered to the table and one dish was forgotten. We were able to get it removed from the bill so we didn't have to pay for it. Coincidently a celebrity came in about 30 minutes after we were sat out our table and they had a group of about 10 people. They sat down about 75 minutes into our dining and somehow their food was delivered in a matter of minutes. It was not a preset selection as I saw each diner order off the menu. The food was pretty good when it finally got delivered 60-75 minutes after we ordered it, but I would not return to a Mr. Chow's again after this experience.
