Great experience great people will always go back
My wife and i had a wonderful experience. Our waiter was very attentive to our needs and the manager frequently checked on us. I definitely will recommend your restaurant to family and friends.
My birthday dinner
Great vibe, good music, good food.
Beautiful decor . Wonderfully plated food . And Great Service
Top notch service and really good Lychee martinis ! The music is always really good . I’ve been here twice so far ! I would definitely recommend for date night !
I had the satay shrimp and the satay chicken - I liked the satay shrimp best ! I also had the Jumbo Prawns & the fortune cookie red velvet cake which was both AHMAZING !!!
Tip ! They have a bar only sunset happy hour which would be cute if you want to drop in between the hours of 6-8 on a Thursday or Friday as a pre game kickoff .
This place gets packed always RSVP and remember the elevator is inside the Dream Hotel !
ILL DEFINITELY BE BACK SOON !
Wait staff was not attentive, moving tables around while we were eating. Waiter never really asked if things were okay and the food was average. Should’ve went to buddakan.
Excellent service ( thank you James : our server is amazing), delicious food!
Me trataron malísimo casi me votan del lugar y el manager que por cierto es hispano es un racista horrible no vuelvo a ese lugar
Even though we had a reservation, we had to wait an hour for a table. The hosts at the check-in desk weren’t very responsive when asked about the wait time. Overall, the food was very tasty and great portions.
Rachel, thank you for your review and feedback. We're glad you enjoyed the food and are very sorry that you experienced a long wait time. We will definitely look into it!
My friends and I had a great time! The staff was very nice, the food was great, D.J was great! This was my Birthday so I figured let me try Philippe Chow, and they did not disappoint. I would recommend this restaurant to everybody, it’s worth it! Definitely going back soon
Thanks for your review, Nessa. We're thrilled to hear that you had a great birthday celebration with us and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
I usually go to Philippe for great ambience and crowd. The food is a plus but the last time I was at the downtown location on 2/21/20 the food was rushed and undercooked( rice was hard to chew, and steak had a funny taste). I was highly disappointed that the manager and waiter didn’t ethically handle it well.
As a new member of open table I found this wonderful restaurant. I don’t eat out so I need help when those special occasion come around to help me find the best places to dine and Philippe did not disappoint not at all. The music was so, so awesome, the atmosphere was just perfect, the staff was amazing and so nice Christopher was our server he was the best. Last but not least the food, (I am a foodie), was excellent the duck was the best I ever tasted, the lobster fried rice was to die for and the appetizer was good. I would recommend this place to dine and Yes I would go back, money was well spent for my husband Birthdayyyyy. Wendy Williams also mentioned this restaurant on her show she gave out reservations to this wonderful place and that was how I knew I wanted to take my husband here for his birthday.
Thanks for your review, Deborah. We're so glad that you enjoyed everything, especially our famous Peking Duck. Wendy is a fan and the feeling is mutual! Hope to see you again!
The restaurant is located in the basement, its very small no waiting area. The music was reminiscent of being in a gap store very annoying not versatile. They placed us by the exit and it was very cold outside we had to keep on our jackets and people waiting to be seated stood by our table while we were eating.
Thanks for your review and feedback, Donna.
Made a reservation a few weeks in advance for 4. Got
There waited for 30 minutes for a table, then got cast to a table in the back corner because they had clearly messed up and refused acknowledge it.
Horrible service throughout
It was OK I thought it was gonna be a little more fancier than that but the music is way too loud he kept on switching waiters the tables are so close together it just wasn’t worth the money I spent
Thanks for your review and feedback. We hope that you will give us another chance to impress you in the future!
Everything was perfect!
Thank you, we're so glad you enjoyed it!
The service was great and the waiter was very attentive. The tables were too close.
Thank you for your review and feedback!
My experience was beautiful. By far one of my favorite dinning experiences in the city. I was treated with such grace and ease. Everything just flowed. The staff was amazing and the food is the best. Thank you.
Thanks for your kind review, Mayanna. We're delighted to hear that you had a wonderful experience and we look forward to seeing you again!
Let me start off by saying: I really wanted to like this restaurant. “She thinking Philippe...I’m thinking Wingstop” is a classic Rick Ross line that always made me want to try Philippe, but I just never had to chance, until I realized it was located in the Dream Downtown, where we were staying. Booking a reservation here was a no brainer. We showed up about ten minutes before the restaurant opened and walked in, but were ushered outside to wait on the bench. I asked if we could have a drink while we waited and the answer was no. Once the restaurant opened nobody came out to check on us or invite us in. The attitude in the air from the staff was very odd, almost judgmental in a way that made you feel uncomfortable. Lots of blank stares, whispers and looks as they scanned the room, and questions were reluctantly answered with a slight attitude. I couldn’t put my finger on why the staff acted as if we didn’t matter. We were dressed very well and I was wearing my Rolex watch, so I guess you could say there was no reason that we wouldn’t belong in a restaurant like this. We didn’t show up in athletic gear or anything that could be off putting. When I asked about the difference between a prawn and a shrimp we were laughed at, which surprised me. We asked for recommendations and it was like pulling teeth, “What are your most popular entrees & apps?” was answered with a shrug. Service was slow with most of the staff congregating near the bar/kitchen doorway to chat. We had to look over numerous times for water refills, drink orders etc. As a frequent high end diner at places such as Nobu or Morimoto, this is unacceptable in my opinion. We expect to be treated like royalty when we walk in as other comparable restaurants treat their guests. Again - the staff could not be bothered and acted as if they were just going through the motions. In some ways it felt as if were were dealing with doormen from an underground club that look you up and down before letting you in. AVOID!
We're sorry to hear about your experience as we want all of our customers to receive the same 5-star service regardless of appearance. We really appreciate your feedback and will definitely look into this further!
Excellent service by waiters had a great time the same waiter 3 times in a row
Thanks for your review, we're glad you had a good experience!
The service was exceptional everyone was always checking on us to make sure we were enjoying our experience. I must admit the food was disgusting it was bland and unseasoned and a complete waste of money.
We're very sorry to hear that you were disappointed in the food as it's not reflective of the feedback we hear from the majority of our customers.
Philippe Chow is one of my favorite restaurants in NYC. It has great vibes, great food and a great staff.
Michael, thank you so much for your kind review. Hope to see you again soon!

Nice decor. Great food (pork butt, bejing chicken, filet mignon, shrimp satay, and dark chocolate dessert). Good service. The passion Philipe cocktail is great too.

Thanks for your review, glad you enjoyed it!
Food was delicious, staff was cordial and attentive, will come back for sure!
Thank you, Pamela. We look forward to seeing you again!
The atmosphere was very crowded and very loud, however we didn’t notice it was restaurant week. Our server did not give us his name until we asked “Marcos”. Also, I ordered the filet mignon & he didn’t ask me the temperature that I wanted it cooked at. When my husband (a chef) asked him if he could do medium well because I didnt want any red he said there’s a lot of sauce so you usually don’t notice. Overall not great experience I have always wanted to dine here this is my first and last time unfortunately
We're very sorry to hear that you had a disappointing experience and we really appreciate your detailed feedback. Hopefully you will give us another chance to impress you!
It was the perfect ending with an AMAZING two for one setting meaning delicious eats and great music in a mild club/lounge setting
Thank you, we're so glad to hear that you had a wonderful experience. Hope to see you again!
Food was great, night was awsome
Thank you for your review and feedback, Mike. We want all of our customers to receive 5-star service and we will definitely work on that. Glad to enjoy that you enjoyed the food and overall experience!
Atmosphere -Initially the music select was not great and VERY loud. Not until 11 pm the music improved and was visibly favored amongst the patrons.
Thanks for your review and feedback. So glad you enjoyed it!
Very interesting experience. It is well below street level, in a buzzy set of subterranean rooms. Upscale Chinese. We had the restaurant week menu, starting with the dumpling sampler and the shrimp satay. Both were great with a variety of tastes. My shrimp satay won, but just barely. Then we had the pork butt and the filet mignon. The filet was the least good of the dishes we had, but was still not bad. The pork was very good. We both had the chocolate cake with miso ice cream and that was the absolute standout--just delicious! All the servers were charming and efficient. We would return to try the peking duck, which we saw at a neighboring table and looked very good.
Thanks for your review. We're delighted to hear that you enjoyed your meal and look forward to hosting you again soon. Our Peking Duck is legendary so we do hope you will try it next time, you will not be disappointed!
From start to finish the experience was amazing. The food was delicious, the drinks were amazing and the service was spectacular. The Beijing Chicken is highly recommended.
We're thrilled to hear that you enjoyed everything. Hope to see you again soon!
