It wasn’t the usual Philippe experience. My party felt rushed and not valued. Customer service definitely needs improvement especially during these times. I honestly don’t feel as if I got a mutual exchange.

We have always enjoyed the restaurant very much. We thought that the outside space was comfortable interesting and creative. However the music was too loud. The food and service was very good!

This was our first time dining at Philippe Chow. The food was outstanding and very nicely presented. The service was very good and the waitstaff was attentive. We dined outside and this is the reason for my rating. While the tables were very nicely and elegantly set, the rest of the ambience was bland and unimaginative.
I feel they could adorn the outdoor space in a more creative and welcoming manner. Overall our experience was positive and I highly recommended this restaurant.

If you cannot order the Peking Duck, go with the Crispy Duck as a substitute. It was a great recommendation by our waiter and it was spot on.

The service and food was very good. Due to the current state our country eating outside was not so great. The night got rather cold and although my party and I would have loved to stay and complete our meals and have dessert, we decided to end the night earlier due to the cold weather. One of the waiters did alert us to the fact they have ordered heaters but it has been a delay. All and all we have a GOOD time! .

PHILIPPE CHOW UPTOWN SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO HAVE OUT/INDOOR DINING FOR UNTIL THEY KNOW HOW TO PROPERLY RUN THE BUSINESS!!!

I made a DINE-IN reservation for my BFF's birthday. We reached the restaurant BEFORE our scheduled reservation time, and was told that because they let WALK-INs sit INDOOR (instead of OUTSIDE), and that since there were no two-top tables available, we would only be allowed to dine OUTSIDE, or wait OUTSIDE on line for up to 2hours--IT WAS 50 DEGREES at 6 in the EVENING. I then asked my BFF "what she would like to do" (since it was her day), and she decided to be seated outside. When we asked to use the restrooms to wash our hands, we noticed there were a PLETHORA of two-top tables available, and the restaurant was so empty, that there was no way they were at maximum capacity.

As we were seated, we ordered our food right away, but had to return at least 3 items because the food was either too salty, or came too late (our appetizers got to the table long after our entrees). Our waiter kept coming to our table with requests from another table, and he also was very apologetic to us about our experience stating VERBATIM "so sorry but the kitchen and staff is really a mess tonight, I do apologize".

I understand in these unprecedented, heavily impacted businesses such as restaurants are doing the best with what they can, but I did not expect this from a restaurant of this "caliber". Secondly, if customers are RESERVING tables, walk-ins should not be allowed the option to be seated INSIDE over reserved guests. Lastly, if they're truly considering outdoor dining in NYC in the MIDDLE OF WINTER, then they need to spend more money on preparing the outdoor setup! There were cars parking within inches of guests with no barriers; exhaust from cars were blowing in guests face; there were cheap plexiglass dividers between tables that wobbled whenever the wind blew (that weren't wide enough); not to mention it was FREEZING AND THERE WERE NO HEAT LAMPS!!!

I am a frequent at Philippe, both uptown and downtown, for years now. Last night I had a reservation made well in advance and waited over 20 min for a table when there were many empty tables. The hostesses were very, very rude and it seemed like they forgot about us waiting because they seated another party of 2 right away while we stood there. We only got seated because I went up to them and said something, otherwise I’d probably still be standing on the street waiting for my table. I just wonder what’s the point of making a reservation if you’re going to have to wait and be forgotten about and spoken rudely to by staff. Once seated everything was delightful, as always, the food was fantastic and the servers are very attentive and sweet.

Late afternoon RSVP after an office visit -- Great service and an unexpected menu of quality good tasting dishes. Although there are social distancing mandates around New York City the restaurant still is open and serves their dinner menus.

Our reservation was at 9pm, the kitchen was closing at 10 pm abs the server was rushing us! We have been there so many times and this time, it was not enjoyable.

The food runners had way more manners than the server
