First time at Mr. Chow’s in Lower Manhattan. Fun ambiance,not as formal as the restaurant in Mis-Town. Great people watching, lively groups enjoying each other’s company, many birthday celebrations during our visit. Service was excellent, food was great, enjoyed a few cocktails and some wine. For those watching their expenses check pricing. We are an older couple who enjoy nice restaurants. Our bill with tip was about $320. We had great time, can’t wait to go back. Cheers!

After hearing Jay-Z brag about his luxurious dinners at Mr. Chow, I had to check it out myself. While the atmosphere, service, and overall dining experience was exquisite, the food was rather mediocre –especially when considering the price. There are far better places to spend $300 between two people.

Food and service are excellent.

Tables are too close together - can not even have a conversation with my date because the people were so close on either side of us we couldn’t even hear each other.

Disappointing. Food was mediocre, at best. We ordered several dishes to share and there wasn't a single one I'd want to eat again. The service was very good as well as the atmosphere, and they have a nice selection of champagnes by the glass. But dinner for 2 (with a few glasses of champagne) ran over $300. I can think of 100 other restaurants where that money would have been better spent.

I was excited to check out Mr Chow....especially the duck. Overall, the food was just ok....not great at all. The duck was not great....pretty dry actually. But the big issue was the cost. It was so out of control, it felt like I was being robbed. I'm happy to pay up for great food in the city and do it all the time. But Mr Chow is charging for his brand, not the actual food. I can think of 50 places with better duck at 1/3 the cost.

I would stay far far away. Don't be fooled.

We arrived early, restaurant was mostly empty. Wait staff tried to up sell everything (water and fixed price menu) and presented the wrong bottle of wine (same brand but different vineyard) twice and would not accept that it was not the wine represented on the menu. Restaurant was loud.

Food was good but mostly we will not return.

food and drinks were very very good. really enjoyed. everything was brought out with good timing. our waiter left little to be desired. was bullying us into ordering much more food then we wanted. we stood firm and the amount was perfect. we really never saw him again. so service was pretty poor and disappointing. however, the waitstaff who brought our dishes to us were fine.

I go to the 57th St location frequently. I also used to go to the Beverly Hills location regularly. Both are consistent. This is my second time at this location and both were major disappointments. The chef here appears to not be able to follow recipes. For example, the lamb with spring onion is usually paper thin. Here it is thicker, fatty pieces covered in a notably fishy sauce instead of the right balance of ingredients used elsewhere. Most alarming though, was that not one dish has tasted correct during both dining experiences here. I would not recommended coming to this location.

This is my third visit to Mr. Chow (twice downtown) and once at the midtown location. And though I enjoy the food very much, I find it unjustifiably pricey. I also feel rushed whenever I dine there. It feels as if the staff is lingering over you...

Mr. Chow—Tribeca always impresses. A great option for a group is the duck dinner, in which you select a number of appetizers and other main dishes. I love sharing the Mr. Chow—Tribeca experience with visitors to NYC, knowing that it will be a highlight of their NYC experience.

Food is average like always. Overrated. Ordered almost the entire menu and only really loved maybe two things. Waiter was rude. Said he normally doesn’t give out menus? That’s weird because I’ve always been given a menu at every other experience at Mr Chow. Then when someone at our table asked him to take a picture, he made a comment about being a very busy man. He wasn’t doing anything but strolling around. He was just rude. Go somewhere else. There are much better restaurants in the city, especially for this price range.

Not impressed by the food quality. Over priced for the poor quality. No complains at all with respect to cleanliness, table set up and service. But I didn't love it. (and I have dined at the likes of Del Posto, 11 Madisson, Daniels etc.)

Horrible!!!!! Run. They call it family style I call it a rip off. Portions were extreme small and expensive. It took 10 minutes to get a waiters attention then another 10 minutes to get extra peanut sauce.

It is a really nice place because of the ambiance and the decor. The food is great but a little overpriced based on value compared to other restaurants in the city. The service is fair at best unfortunately. We were never asked how the meal was and had to continuously get someones attention for another beverage. That was disappointing! Get the chicken satay.

This place is really interesting, with the waiters with French accents in tuxedos, and the food is creative and phenomenal.
Honestly, it was delicious and unlike anything I’ve ever had.
We truly enjoyed it!
The only issues stem from this place being excellent and thus really popular:
The noise level is really loud, and they definitely move the meal along extremely rapidly.
Still a great experience!
