I went here to celebrate my 21st birthday with a party of 9 the food was amazing and large in portion. The waiters, host and bartenders were very attentive and fun. Me and my party enjoyed our time and our dinner thanks so much. I recommend this place to everyone if your looking for somewhere classy to dine but still want that upbeat Nyc type of night !

The food and service were very good. The experience was ruined somewhat by the family of four sitting next to us all having separate conversations on their speaker phones.

Outside isn't as appeasing as I would've imagined. Once you walk inside you're greeted by two hosts at a small desk. The waiter was montone. The food was a 6/10 PF Chang's equivilant.
Super quiet inside though great place for a meeting or first date. And the seats are a decent distance apart.

The food and service was great. Only thing that was disappointing was the fact that we had 7:30 reservations and still had to wait for a table for 20 minutes.

This place is by far the best place we’ve been too this year! The prefixe lunch is awesome. Great selection. We ordered the crispy beef and the Beijing chicken as well as the chicken skewers. They sung happy birthday for my fiancé with a delicious red velvet cake and I had the brownie with coconut sorbet. We loved this place so much I’m making sure he brings me back for my birthday in November. I’ve literally dreamed about the crispy beef, it’s sweet like candy but it’s BEEF! I’ve pondered about how they could keep the crisp crispy while saturated with a sweet sauce! It’s pure MAGIC! And the cute pandas on the table are very welcoming! Loved those so much I brought one (or two) home lol (of course I asked the waiter first).

We had a 10:00 reservation. They called me 5 minutes before 10 to say the kitchen was closing at 10. We were 2 minutes away. When we arrived they seated us and said the kitchen is closing in 5 minutes so if we wanted food we better order. I didn’t go there to stare at the walls. Never having been there before we were unfamiliar with the menu. Reading quickly to try and pick our selections. We ordered and the waiter said well I hope you ordered everything you want because the kitchen is closing. Once they took our order they basically shoved the food down our faces. They didn’t bring appetizer first they brought the entree and side and the appetizer. Never asked us if we wanted drinks, never asked how our meal was and had to ask them to refill our water. We never saw our actual waiter again. On top of that. I get an email the following day saying we didn’t receive 100 points for this dinner. Terribly disappointed and will never go back!!!

This place is all attitude all the time. The food has no flavor at all. The crowd that this place attracts tends to be as obnoxious as the staff. I really can't find anything to recommend about this place whatsoever.

I've always considered Philippe Chow to be a treasure for its food, service, and ambience. Based on my recent experience I will likely never return. Waiters were standing around joking with one another when the restaurant was pretty empty and it took 15 minutes for them to take a drink order, and another 15 to bring them. We ordered lobster as an appetizer and Peking Duck and they came out within minutes so we were rushed with the first course. The pacing was awful. They also brought a dish we did not order and seemed miffed when we told them so. No one knew anything wine and when you're spending $150 someone ought to. Finally the ladies room was disgusting. Shame on you Philipe Chow! You were more like a neglected fast food restaurant on the turnpike than the elegant Manhattan haven you once were.

This Philippe visit was my first visit and my LAST!!! I drove all the way from Philadelphia to NewYork to check out Philippe and enjoy myself!!!! When I booked my reservations, I mentioned and left a note that it was my birthday. Upon arrival, when I gave the hostess my name, she didn’t know who I was, I had to end up showing her the actual reservation email. She me, myself and my party was seated! The interior it self was horrible and closed in!!! We hated it. The food was not the best. The waiters kept walkin back and fourth the entire night. Here is absolutely i privacy in that restaurant. I was not asked if it okay/checked on at my seat by my waiter. My birthday was not acknowledged! Philippe overall was not wat I expected from such a high end restaurant! I DID NOT enjoy my self there and will not be returning.
