The hostesses were not very nice. Everyone in our party believed that because we didn’t fit the image of what Phillipe Chow’s tries to promote (under 30, scantily clothed club scene, etc.) they tried to seat us in their back room (with another group celebrating their 60th, by the way). Even the Manager was encouraging this. It felt very bad. We had to negotiate for a table in the main dining room. Also, there was a DJ playing music SO loud we literally had to yell at each other and the serving staff to be heard.

I was surprised that the food wasn’t better based on conversation surrounding this restaurant and it having to be a “must to visit”.

The duck was good as well as salt pepper shrimp. However they didn't tale the shrimp line(basicly fezes) from it. Feels uncomfortable about it.

This was my second visit and it didn’t disappoint. The food is incredible!! The service and ambiance are both very good. I noticed this time that the music was a bit loud but it was good so I didn’t mind. All in all a great place for dinner and in a perfect location.

Would be a 5 star if they didnt forget that it was a birthday dinner. I selected birthday as the occasion when I booked the table. Ordered two desserts, none had a candle or sparkle on it. Food however was fantastic.

It was my first time visiting Philippe’s and I was definitely pleased! I made reservations for my boyfriends birthday and wanted to surprise him by having them bring out a bottle of his favorite champagne. The manager was so accommodating and low-key I boyfriend had no idea what was going on. Our waiter was very attentive and nice. The food and atmosphere were both great. I will definitely be back.

The food was good. The ambience was good and the DJ was playing good music however the restaurant is in the lower level of the dream hotel and you feel like your underground and it was a little warm in there. It’s not a cavernous place so you really do feel like your underground. It was nice but I don’t feel the need to go back. Tao and Buddakan are nicer interiors and feel a lot roomier. Also the couple next to us lost their cell phone and waiters and mangers kept coming over with flashlights. I know what it’s like to lose a phone but it was a little much and distracting. When I said something to the manager he said we can’t control our guests and that was a poor response when in fact it was management that kept coming over with flashlights and searching and disturbing us. Oh well they won’t need to worry about us coming back.

We had an amazing time, they were very accommodating when it came to party size changes as well as food changes. The service was impeccable, noise level was pretty loud but we were able to still enjoy ourselves and the food. I would definitely suggest coming at an earlier time if the noise level would be an issue for you. Overall enjoyed dining here as well as the experience.

Good, not great. The food was pretty bland. We had the lettuce wraps, spring rolls, and flat noodles with chicken. Added some chili sauce or duck sauce to all items. The strawberry dessert was good. I would come back for that! Waiter was on point.
