consistently excellent food, always served very professionally, and priced reasonably for high quality food (which means you get what you paid for).
I've been a fan of Shun Lee West for years. I went on Tuesday after a show at Lincoln Center with a 10pm reservation. The front was darkened, the bar was closed and draped with linen, and the maître 'd rushed us to the table saying we had to order RIGHT NOW as the kitchen was closing soon. The waiter apologized, but we were rushed in and out - we were out the door just after 1030. The food was great as always, but if you don't want to serve customers post-theater, don't take late reservations. This was a real bummer.
We had a wonderful meal. The menu is different from most Chinese restaurants and the selection is excellent. Service was very attentive, friendly and efficient. The food is a bit pricey, but worth it. It's a good Lincoln Center choice.
The soup was cold and had to be sent back. The kitchen had run out of gluten free crepes. We were not made aware of it. The kitchen sent out lettuce without asking if we wanted the substitute. The manager and waiter seemed to not really care but just wanted to get on to the next thing.....
Food was good but very overpriced. 10$ for egg drop soupLOL!?
Fabulous food with generous portions! Great service! Right across from Lincoln Center!
Very disappointed in the food and service
We would not go back or suggest it to others
Great choice for dinner before Lincoln Center events.
A favorite lunch spot one of the best in NYC
Do not try sweet and sour chicken. Disgusting.
Food was like warm and mediocre
High expectations but food was pricey, most staff was attentive but one waiter haggled over 39 cents at the end of the meal when we gave more than a 20% tip - it was bizarre. The food was very underwhelming.
Food, as usual, was way above average. The service, however, did not come up to standard this time.
Hate to write bad reviews, but the food quality has seriously declined here.
I had sea bass which was slimy, and my son pulled a long piece of his hair out of his food, which definitely wasn’t his.
Its time for either a huge overhaul, or the place needs to close down for good.
We have been eating at Shun Lee East and West for years and enjoyed excellent Chinese food. Friday night was an unfortunate exception. The dumplings for the Beijing duck were overlooked and dry. The scallops were mealy and tasteless Hopefully just a bad night in the kitchen but....
