Macao Trading Co. covers two floors offering both a spacious dining room upstairs and an intimate lounge downstairs. During the current climate, an outdoor space has been added to accommodate guests. The cuisine represents the blend of Chinese and Portuguese cuisines found in the once independent colony of its namesake. Located on Church St, at the edge of Tribeca, Macao’s décor is a dramatic composition of lighting, relics and industrial iron work. The high ceilings and tucked away location provide a fitting setting for the restaurant’s 1940s portside warehouse feel, recalling the adventure of Macao’s "red lantern district."

    My husband and I first met at Macao, and now we come back every year on that anniversary. It’s always a pleasure. The food is reliably delicious and the service is consistently attentive and friendly.

    - The dumplings were too bland - The bbq back ribs were too dry and hard - The hoisin noodles weren’t cooked properly. The food quality definitely regressed compared to a couple years ago.

    I had the octopus and fried vegetables, both of which were delicious. The hostess was welcoming and the waitress was attentive, but not intrusive. The manager took time to visit the guests and inquire their experience. Overall, it was an enjoyable evening.

    Had the opportunity to visit Macao on a Saturday evening at 9P reservation. The location is dimly lit and the decor was unique. The service was off and on as when it got busy it service was quite poor. The food we got was the fried fish and African chicken. It came out quick however the fish was very bland. The chicken was dry. It was also very load and we found ourselves having to yell across the table. Overall, would not return.

    Food was ok not great Service was ok. What really annoyed, was thst I asked for an Arnold Palmer Waitress didn’t come back to say they have no iced tea She brings me a lemonade without asking if I would have preferred anything else ( I hate plain lemonade !) And when the bill comes at end of evening. They charged me $10 for the lemonade and called it a “virgin drink “ Food was eh. Dumplings cried so much u couldn’t eat !

    Great spot usually take out of town guests. They ran out of crispy fish when we ordered hence the markdown on stars. Weekends are always busy it was a shame they weren't prepared. Also try to Coconut Panna Cotta delish

    I still love this place. I have been going periodically pretty much since they opened about 15 years ago and the quality remains high. The truffle croquettes and the steamed dumplings were excellent appetizers. We almost always have the crispy whole fish, which is so moist and flavorful, and the waiter deftly filleted it for us. The hoisin noodles with vegetables were great and the eggplant side dish and the black rice were both delicious accompaniments. It is a bit pricey but the quality is topnotch.
