    Absolutely first rate. No red paper lanterns, no touristy decor, just quiet dining. For a few minutes, loud children broke the sound barrier, but I think they were just picking up Take Out with their parents. Every morsel was delicious.

    Arrived and seated without issues. Wait or spoke to us about the menu and advised options and took an order as expected. After that everything felt rushed, food came in non-specific order, nobody checked to see if we needed another drink and we were brought 2 meals for another table. Our plates were cleared without checking if we had finished and still had mains on the table. We didn't ask for the check but it was brought regardless. For a meal on Xmas day we expected better.

    The waitstaff messed up my dinner order 3 times. First, they forgot to order my dinner. Then they brought the wrong dinner. Then they took another 30 minutes to bring my actual dinner. By that time I had eaten enough of my partners dinner that I was no longer hungry. I canceled my dinner, paid our tab and left.

    This restaurant was, for lack of a better word, disappointing. Granted, we chose to dine there for Dinner on Thanksgiving, but we still had higher expectations. Apparently, the much advertised room with the glass ceiling was not open so the ambience of the first floor was less than exciting. Best part of the meal was the Starters - delicious Scallion Pancake and Chicken Potstickers. One in our party had a Szechuan dish that she declared outstanding. The Garlic Chicken was bland and not at all "garlicky." Service was perfunctory.

    I took a party of 8 business clients to a dinner, and treated them to an authentic Chinese meal. The quality of food was exceptional and most importantly, authentic, despite the fact that I spanned across Cantonese, Shanghainese, and Szechuan cuisines. Service was perfect, and I think this may become a regular thing for me.

    We had a wonderful lunch there and the server was particularly pleasant and efficient. The food was terrific but of course we had ordered well. Our soup dumplings were very good and the Orange Blossom Chicken surrounded by steamed broccoli was excellent. Our other dish was one of my favorites, sautéed pea stems in garlic. A lovely lunch before going to the theater nearby across the park. This was my 2nd time there and it won't be the last.

    This place I feel is more of a spot for lunch. Because I went here for dinner on a Saturday night and it was dead in there. The food is ok nothing special especially for the price. I’ve had been quality Chinese and at cheaper spots. The service was impeccable. One thing that is off putting is them allowing you to make a reservation right before close and then they rush you to order. I wouldn’t go back but the service were all really nice!!

All the drinks and dishes we ordered were well presented, nicely portioned for sharing. Everyone liked the food which was delicious and tasted authentic. We shall return.

    After finishing my soup I had to wait at least half an hour for the entree. The waiter said it was because there was a party in the next room. He should have informed me of this at the time I placed my order.
