    An excellent restaurant with superb service, more than decent Chinese dishes and interesting cocktails. Coming from Asia, I always found it difficult to find a high-end Chinese restaurant where the ambience, service, and food quality are all equally good. Philippe Downtown is the first restaurant that gave me that total satisfaction. The shrimp dumpling can rival that of top restaurants in Asia. I love the way they fixed the red king crab - plain steamed with ginger and scallion.

    We have gone to Philippe for many years, starting with the Uptown location although we have been at the Downtown location several times.The pandemic kept us away for over two years until this past Saturday. We ordered our favorite dishes and while very good, there was just something missing. The peanut sauce for the chicken Satay was not as strong as remembered, the pancakes for the crispy duck were smaller and not as substantial, for example. Philippe is still our favorite Chinese restaurant and worth the trip from Long Island.

    Very much like theme park food-expensive large shrimp fried and covered with breading I didn't find it tasty unless unless you drown it with the super sweet sugar sauce. Filet Mignon ditto swimming in sauce but no real flavor other than the sauce. This is a personal thing, many people like this kind of food. Go for the cocktails and maybe appetizers. Much cheaper. Staff is friendly.

    Horrible experience with one of the manager. Not the manager who works uptown for years, he is the best always. But another one was at downtown location yesterday… We asked to adjust the bill from 4 glass of wines to 3…mistakes happens I totally get it. But he brought back the bill that he added gratuity for us…we were 2 of us plus a toddler. Very unprofessional behavior as a manager treating regulars, just bc he can make decisions he is definitely not the right fit to be a manager in such a fancy place. Never happened before and we always give 20 percent gratuity as a standard but he doesn’t need to show us his power…ugh.

    Philippe used to be our go to location when we had friends from other places visiting NYC. Not to mention the number of times we recommended to others. However, the last few visits has been awful and this one last was it and I can no longer recommend or take anyone there. At this last visit the manager and were more worried about doing tequila shots with a table near us then actually managing the restaurant. He turned up the music so loud that it became a night club vs a restaurant. Don’t get me wrong. I like the energetic vibe. However, when you cannot have a conversation at your table because the music is so loud, then it missed the energetic vibe and it became a night club. The drinks were awful, not well made or balance as it used to be. The food was lukewarm. The grand Walnut prawns were terrible. The creamy sauce on them was basically mayo. Our waiter was also more preoccupied with the table in which the manager was doing shots with. Once he took our order we only saw him again with a dessert menu. We tried ordering the Cotton Candy and he told us that they had already cleaned the machine for the night. Well, 30 minutes later they brought the Cotton Candy for the table where tequila shots and the party was at. Not to mention that they already included the tip on our check which I get it if we were a big party, but there were only 3 of us. It’s so sad to see such a great restaurant be so badly managed and the standards dropped.
