Phillipe Chow never fails to give optimal ambiance and service. I had a wonderful experience trying out new dishes such as the lobster satay, as well as eating my usual favorite chicken with lettuce cups. My waiter was very attentive to me and my family. A great time was had by all.

This restaurant has been re-invented in the best sort of way. In the past they would always use the same brown sauce on top of everything, so always best not to have anything with sauce. The sesame shrimp with honey walnuts was a great appetizer and the barbecued spare ribs are just as yummy and meaty as Philippe's father's restaurant MR CHOW. Peking Duck for $85 is a bargain because the duck is gigantic and you can keep getting refills on the thin wrapper variety. Try a Lichee martini and most of what you will get is pure alcohol. Delicious from every direction. Highly recommended.

If you love high end Chinese and don't necessarily want to drop $100 per person, check out the amazing prix fixe lunch at Philippe. $26 for two courses ($29 with dessert) from some of their most popular menu options served with the same flair and courtesy. Dishes are serve family style so if you are with a good friend you can try twice as much. Our favorites are the chicken in lettuce and the orange crispy beef, but we haven't had anything we don't like.

The food was absolutely amazing! Definitely recommend the food, particularly the curry prawns and the four pepper prawns. Also, the pork soup dumplings are to die for. Good selection and taste of cocktails.

Our service, however, was not good at all. Our waiter apparently forgot to put in our drink order, brought the wrong appetizer, and brought a wrong entree. We had to repeatedly ask for help from another waiter, which was frustrating.

The food is out of this world, I hope that the service was not normal and that we just got someone on an off day.

Food is great!! Really good! But the atmosphere wasn’t all that... place doesn’t look anything special, some guy was mopping while people were eating, boring layout, and one of the emergency lights was on almost the whole time -_- . The staff was great though! On point, swift with the water fill ups, kept checking in on us and the food. Just wish the place looked nicer.

Should have never gone here. Complete waste of time and money; considering we drove in from NJ. The food was, honestly, not good - better off at a local restaurant and I'm sure you'll eat tastier food. Our vegetable fried rice had NOT ONE I repeat NOT ONE vegetable in it and when we spoke to our waiter about it the excuse was as poor as the food and service. He seemed way too busy and overwhelmed with he family sitting next to us with their two younger children. Honestly the bus boys were more on top of our water than the waiter was to our general experience. Such a disappointment. Don't feed into the hype. It's really not all that and no one we spoke to (hostess included) tried to make anything better. They charged us for "bottle water"...water...from a bottle which had NO label. An experience it was for sure. Disgusting food and terrible service.

We have been to Philippe several times, both uptown and downtown. We chose Uptown this time, the food was AMAZING as usual and the general vibe trendy and fun, BUT, whoever was serving us on Saturday night (7:30pm-), by the back corner booth was not pleasant or knowledgeable. My friend has celiac and that’s why we love Philippe, because they cater to the GF crowd and clearly label the dishes that are GF. However, our server was rolling his eyes at us when we asked him if there was soy sauce in a certain dish and said he didn’t know, but didn’t go in the back to ask the chef. When it was time for dessert, we asked him for any GF options and he again rolled his eyes, and said he “had no idea” what was GF, again, not finding out if there were any option for us. At one point, when I got up to use the restroom, he stood at a table across the room and stared at me with an odd look on his face. This is the first time I’ve ever had an experience like this at Philippe and plan to return, but hope we get a different server. If a manager sees this review, I would be happy to explain further. I would still recommend both locations.

Pork Soup Dumplings and Peking Duck is the best I have had, both in China and outside!
The service was professional and friendly - only 4 start as I had to ask 3 times for a drink (although I probably asked the wrong waiter)
Ambiance was fine except rather cool temperature on arrival, which was opening time and the did move us to another table in a warmer area!
