Chinese
Sino, the second endeavor of culinary artist Chris Yeo, was envisioned to entice the palette with the tradition of Dim Sum and the wonders of modern Chinese cuisine. Grand in scale, Sino offers an intimacy and sensuality that is unparalleled- from the warmth of the dining room adorned with billowing crimson curtains and layers of gossamer, to the plush and luxurious appointments of the lounge where comfort and beauty beckon you to stay a while.

I’ve always liked the place. Food is great.
But... this time the Bathrooms were smelly and walls dirty with graffiti etched in them. I expected better like my visits in the past. Had a bathroom attendant but stall was dirty.

It was our second time at Sino because we really enjoy the food. However, if you want to have a nice dinner in which you can actually have a conversation with the other people in your party, don’t come here on a weekend. The bar and restaurant area are not separated and the music from the bar area is extremely loud and makes hearing the person sitting across the table almost imposible.

This is the second time I’ve been there and they don’t check me in with open table so it’s frustrating getting an email telling me I didn’t show up.

We went for brunch and it was fairly empty on a saturday morning. I was hoping for more vegetarian options for dim sum but no luck. I recommend the garlic noodles but it's a bit pricey. The inside of the restaurant is a bit dark, service was great.

The area is a very nice area. The noise level is down some but on weekends it is much louder. Food is amazing! Always very happy with that. The staff at times are slow but when you do have their attention it is undivided.

Some great dishes, however, service lacked. Also, the place could use a good scrubbing, felt too night cluby.

The music was so loud you could hear it down the street. They tried to seat us in the very back to get away from it but we couldn’t talk at all, we couldn’t yell and be heard. We left

I celebrated my 30th birthday there this past weekend and I had an amazing experience. The food was delicious. The server was very nice and attentive. The only thing I recommend is extending the hours for the lounge. Thank you so much for allowing to have my birthday gathering there.

The food is AMAZING.
Always a hit.
Service was a bit slow. Took about 10 minutes for us to ask our server to get the check, even though the room was not that busy. There were about 5 to 7 tables open.

We had to keep asking for things that should come with dim sum, such as sauces. By the time our soup dumpling dipping sauce was delivered, the dish was nearly gone. The value is worse than authentic dim sum, so I expect the service and food quality to make up for it, but that wasn’t my experience this time.

I really love the lunch food at Sino restaurant but the service makes me second guess if I want to be put through that.. I am in the food industry myself and the server's and host has not always been the best at handing out memorable customer service.

The food is good but it has gone down in quality. The restaurant felt dirty. The table and silverware were dirty. We had to request new place seatings twice.

My meal was over-cooked: they did take it off the bill. I got tired of the endless stream of wait staff walking through the tight space behind my chair and the next table. The waiter got my wife a new plate and then almost tossed it to her like a frisbee. The entire experience was unpleasant and unrelaxing. This is the last time we'll eat there.

Love the food every time. The one downfall was that our food came out before our appetizers and we mentioned it and server didn’t seem concerned at all. Just not the point of appetizers. Almost felt like they were rushing us

We always love the food and wonderful staff. We come about twice a month but even during brunch time it’s hard to hear and bring business clients because it’s too dark and loud. Would make for a better location if the music and lights were different for day time dining

The service is always lacking, but the food is fantastic so we keep coming back. It’s like hitting the jackpot if our hostess isn’t rude and tries to seat us in the worst spot possible, and getting a server to take our order, always has a long wait, despite not being busy. We always have to ask for drinks to be refilled, and don’t even think about asking for a sauce, since it won’t come for days. But the food is A-MA-ZING! Always tastes great, and we can’t get enough of it. Too bad the service doesn’t match.

Very disappointing meal, took 30 minutes for the waitress to acknowledge us and then we ordered a dish with no meat as we are vegetarians and meat was left in the dish.

We were seated outside which was nice but some people that were not providing the restaurant sat on the railing that was right up against our table through our entire meal and the waitress and staff did not ask them to move.
