    Pretty good food, but severely overpriced for what it is. It doesn't help the wine list is mediocre and outrageously priced, how about 70 bucks for an average to mediocre bottle? Ambiance is a surprising mix of party and diner scene, which is not necessarily bad but not necessarily good in this case either. As you can tell, I was not thrilled and won't go back... Then again, NYC dinner scene has gone totally crazy and reached abysmal value, so I guess they're just part of the wave.

    This was our first time at Philippe and I loved it. Our waiter was absolutely horrible and rude for no reason throughout the night. I invest in Dallas restaurants and eat out all the time and never experienced anybody like him. Some clients recommended this place and it did not disappoint. The atmosphere was energetic, the host team and bartenders were so nice, the food was so delicious, drinks were well made. I will definitely be back again and will request to not sit in the last waiters station

    Loud and overly energetic! Food is tasty - and wine list well done. Cocktails are fun and flowing. It’s a celebration spot - not for everyday or casual dinner. But it’s a lot of fun!

    The ambiance and service was very well. The shrimp tasted as if it had slightly expired and spoiled. The chicken with the garlic sauce had been sitting in the sauce so it became soggy.

    I appreciated the multi-person service provided. Outside of my main waiter, i was checked on by multiple ppl meaning if i needed anything, there definitely wouldn’t be any long wait or ‘please ask your server’. Food was tasty too.. got the surf and turf and I’m glad the lobster had a sauce on it because i could tell it was a bit bland (waiter actually warned me that the lobster app i was about to order was bland so props for the honesty, i skipped it and saved me coins lol). The pineapple sorbet at the end was damn good and i really enjoyed the Lychee Martini- more places need to add coconut cream to it!

    I want to start off with mentioning my exceptional server Roberto. He went above and beyond, he did not try to sell anything just to rack the bill up, he even told me I was ordering too much, and helped me with his recommendations. I really appreciated that. His recommendations were stellar. I hope the next time I’m there he’s my server again. The server assistants were very attentive as well. The hostess was very nice as well. I enjoyed all of my dishes. The appetizers were very good. The vegetable fried rice and sweet and sour chicken were amazing. The peanut butter explosion that we got for dessert was unreal. I also recommend the Paradise Bay, probably one of my favorite cocktails that I’ve had in recent days. Dress to impress for sure, but the dress code seemed lax. Hats are ok too which is always good to know. I liked my experience here a lot and I would definitely come back.

    My wife and I were so excited to try this restaurant for the first time. We couldn’t have been more disappointed. Starting with their signature lychee martinis, probably the worst we’ve ever had. Too sweet, not an once of alcohol, and not cold. We asked the waiter for recommendations, so we ordered their chicken satay which were served luke warm, along with the duck cilantro dumplings. Our appetizer plates were not cleared off our table for quite some time. And we had finished our drinks, our empty glasses were not cleared nor were we asked for another round of cocktails. For dinner I ordered the drunken sea bass, it was disgusting for lack of a better word. The fish was soggy and the sauce was basically syrup. My wife ordered the chicken lettuce wraps as a safe choice, nothing special. Even through dinner not once did our waiter ask us for another round of drinks or even how our meals were. We barely ate our dinner as we were so disappointed and turned off. We couldn’t ask for our bill soon enough, paid and left immediately. Total disappointment for such a highly hyped up restaurant. We will absolutely not be going back and we not recommend this place. You’re better off going to your local Chinese food place.
