Atmosphere was nice. The hosts & servers were very nice. However, the food wasn’t as good as I expected it to be. More like overpriced Chinese food.

I always make it my business to visit Phillipe a few times a year. I love their Crispy Beef and Kung Pao Chicken. The staff is also always very pleasant and accommodating. The only downside is that some of tables are pretty close together. Overall, great experience.

Phillipe Chow never fails to give optimal ambiance and service. I had a wonderful experience trying out new dishes such as the lobster satay, as well as eating my usual favorite chicken with lettuce cups. My waiter was very attentive to me and my family. A great time was had by all.

This restaurant has been re-invented in the best sort of way. In the past they would always use the same brown sauce on top of everything, so always best not to have anything with sauce. The sesame shrimp with honey walnuts was a great appetizer and the barbecued spare ribs are just as yummy and meaty as Philippe's father's restaurant MR CHOW. Peking Duck for $85 is a bargain because the duck is gigantic and you can keep getting refills on the thin wrapper variety. Try a Lichee martini and most of what you will get is pure alcohol. Delicious from every direction. Highly recommended.

If you love high end Chinese and don't necessarily want to drop $100 per person, check out the amazing prix fixe lunch at Philippe. $26 for two courses ($29 with dessert) from some of their most popular menu options served with the same flair and courtesy. Dishes are serve family style so if you are with a good friend you can try twice as much. Our favorites are the chicken in lettuce and the orange crispy beef, but we haven't had anything we don't like.

The food was absolutely amazing! Definitely recommend the food, particularly the curry prawns and the four pepper prawns. Also, the pork soup dumplings are to die for. Good selection and taste of cocktails.

Our service, however, was not good at all. Our waiter apparently forgot to put in our drink order, brought the wrong appetizer, and brought a wrong entree. We had to repeatedly ask for help from another waiter, which was frustrating.

The food is out of this world, I hope that the service was not normal and that we just got someone on an off day.

Food is great!! Really good! But the atmosphere wasn’t all that... place doesn’t look anything special, some guy was mopping while people were eating, boring layout, and one of the emergency lights was on almost the whole time -_- . The staff was great though! On point, swift with the water fill ups, kept checking in on us and the food. Just wish the place looked nicer.

Should have never gone here. Complete waste of time and money; considering we drove in from NJ. The food was, honestly, not good - better off at a local restaurant and I'm sure you'll eat tastier food. Our vegetable fried rice had NOT ONE I repeat NOT ONE vegetable in it and when we spoke to our waiter about it the excuse was as poor as the food and service. He seemed way too busy and overwhelmed with he family sitting next to us with their two younger children. Honestly the bus boys were more on top of our water than the waiter was to our general experience. Such a disappointment. Don't feed into the hype. It's really not all that and no one we spoke to (hostess included) tried to make anything better. They charged us for "bottle water"...water...from a bottle which had NO label. An experience it was for sure. Disgusting food and terrible service.
