My boyfriend and I enjoyed celebrating his birthday. Figuring out the perfect wine pairing, the fresh lobster and the mango sorbet were some of the highlights

I am a vegetarian and have been eating at Mr Chow for the past 20 years. My dinner last night was terrible. Dumplings came out and chewy, scallion pancakes and cucumber smelled of fish oil and fish sauce. The entrees came out cold.

An outstanding place to eat and as always the food was excellent! Unfortunately the place was extremely noisy and crowded due to graduations. We loved the crispy beef, the vermicelli with lobster and the gambless duck. We have been coming to Mr. Chow for over 25 years and it has always been very good

The music selection was extremely ODD!!!!
Very very loud and inappropriate.... like 1980s and 90s greatest hits...
And the people.
How about a dress code with NO ball caps at dinner... no matter how RICH you are

Not a good experience. The food was tasteless and overpriced. The service was fair at best. We felt rushed. The special occasion was a birthday and the whole experience was such a let down. Would not recommend this restaurant unless you want to spend a large sum of money for less than average food.

We were looking forward to dining at Mr. Chow's for our 20th anniversary. The food was good but not worth the cost. We ordered the pri-fixe for two. For starters, we had the Lobster Shumai, which was okay. We also had the Vermicelli with Lobster, which I liked, but the serving was so small. For the main course, we had the Sea Bass (nice flavor but simple) and the Gamblers Duck (which was a big disappoinment). Overall, we were very disappointed. We felt as if we were robbed... but ultimately it was our fault since we read reviews prior to going and STILL decided to try it anyway. : /
It's not bad food, it's just not worth the cost.

Secret is to have your waiter as your guide. Once he knows you then just tell him what your mood for food is that particular evening and bring you every he wants you to taste.
Donny is my man.

The portions are ridiculous. The service was poor it took forever to get someone to the table so I could place an order. When they finally took the order they got things wrong. Someone at the table had seafood allergies and they took note of that when we’re placing the order however they brought shrimp fried rice and put it in front of her. Then the waiters were rude and they were in a rush to do everything and the person with the seafood allergy some form of seafood was mixed in and they had an allergic reaction. This was one of the worst experiences of my life and I would not recommend. No value for my money!

Superb service from the moment you arrive you are well taken care of. Food can be better especially at this price point and they have to do something about the noise especially when you have a very noisy table right next to you trying to show everyone how much fun they are having!

This was our 2nd visit in 8 mos and it was just was amazing as it was in sept for my husbands birthday. We took his mom and sister to enjoy a lovely Mother’s Day dinner and they had a beyond unforgettable evening. My husband and I can’t wait to go back! Tony was our waiter and he took stellar care of us and made sure we had the best of all the appetizer and entree options. The hostesses were great as well!
