I would have rated this a 5 star however the service was so poor I just couldn't. The food, which is why we go is just outstanding! Every single dish we ordered was outstanding!!! However, the service was just poor for the level of this kind of restaurant. I get much better service as diners, and I'm not kidding. Our server, was not interested whatsoever and frankly she seemed not to really care much about her job and certainly about us. When you spend over $400, one expects a certain level of professionalism. My water never was even refilled. I had to make eye contact with the bartender to get a refill ... he couldn't even get her attention so someone from my table got up and the bartender poured the water. Frankly, the manager & owners of Chinois should be embarrassed and ashamed. What was an amazing meal and celebration of a friend's birthday was overall a bittersweet experience. Because of that I can't recommend Chinois to a friend
This is the finest restaurant for a special occasion in LA. Everything is perfect waiter Tom, reception by Jason, food, drinks, wine absolutely perfect!!
Not how I remembered this once glamourous and festive restaurant. More empty than full, though the waiters were delightful.
Always amazing. Thanks
I always enjoyed dining at this restaurant. This time, the waitress was kind of cold and snobby.
It was bit noisy so we couldn't really enjoying talking to each other. However, we still like the food and most of time service is good, and Jason does best to accommodate my needs, so i will keep going. Thanks.
It’s always delicious at Chinois!
My husband and I go to Chinois every year for his Birthday. It's getting a little old and tired. Not us. Chinois. We always enjoy ourselves but they need to step up their game.
Chinois is one of our favorite restaurants in Los Angeles; we have been dining there since Wolfgang Puck opened the place in the eighties. We still order the signature dishes that still adorn the menu, and the have never disappointed. Lunchtime on July 3 was very quiet, and we were entertaining some friends from out of the country. Another great time at a landmark LA venue!
Just amazing!! Food was fantastic and the service was impeccable.
Always has been the best food in Lost Angeles
Friendly service and an excellent meal for a belated Father’s Day celebration. Thanks Chinois!
The food was exquisite. The service was impeccable. Same great vibes as years gone past. A favorite in our family for celebrations!
Went for our anniversary for the first time, even though I’ve lived in LA since it opened. Always wanted to experience Wolfgang’s early fusion restaurant and was not disappointed. Food was great-big portions, lots of great flavors. Wait staff was friendly and attentive. It was pricey but worth it!
The chinese chicken salad was wonderful- understandably a classic. The Chilean sea bass was outstanding, light and so flavorful. EXCELLENT! Staff were attentive and efficient. We'll be back!
My recommendation is tepid at best. I haven't been to this place at this location in probably 20 years, and it seemed exactly the same - decor, menu, everything... Very strange. Food was still good, if not as unique and interesting as I remember. Catfish still a show stopper and tasty, but not incredible. Szechuan beef very good. Nothing bad, but not much spectacular either. Decor is very dated, and everything looks very worn out. And prices seemed very high compared to similar experiences, and with the food not quite as amazing as I remember, doesn't really seem worth it. Not sure what to make of it all really.
You can’t beat perfect.
Simply the best. John the waiter was excellent
food was prepared perfectly.
It’s the best food and service and hospitality on the side. Hands down.
My friends and I started a birthday club and it all began at this restaurant in 1997. So glad we are back and the food and service was awesome !!!
The food was offensive in quality. Scary poor quality in execution. Taste was average at best. Presentation was good. Service was fantastic. No where close to justifying the prices.
We have eaten wonderful food @ Chinois for years, excellent with every visit, whether a special occasion or a quick dinner at the back counter top. The long term staff is as excellent as the food. Kudos to all.
It was very quiet as we were the first guests! On a Saturday night, it gets loud. The SEA BASS is an excellent dish, every time! And, the duck fried rice is amazing.
Acceptable but not special. Over-sauced and overseasoned, but otherwise the preparation and cooking was competent. The service was alert and good. Wine list needs work. Too many of the selections are either second rate producers or off years.
Great food, what was new is now classic modern Chinese food with a twist.
Creative and fun. Service was very very good. Staff was informative and absolutely pleasant without being intrusive.
I have been coming to Chinois on Main for over 20 years and the food and service is still excellent!
Chinois is an island of perfection on a sea of not quites. Hospitality is unbeatable
And the food is scrumptious.
People say the place has aged, but the food is still well prepared.
Great food, wine & atmosphere. Not your ordinary Chinese restaurant.
Have been coming here for may years. never fails to disappoint! This time, we had the sea bass wrapped in won ton for the first time. Outstanding! Also ordered prime filet stir fry. Amazing! The space is tight, and it is a bit noisy. But, if your looking for Wolfgang classic Asian fare, you can't do better than this.
What a gem! You feel so welcomed by all, and the food is spectacular!
My first visit to Chinois was approximately 30 years ago. Chinois has been a favorite since then. They have been consistently outstanding in every way.
Although several dishes we good, others were greasy and seemed to be cooked without passion. Restaurant a shadow of what it was
Jason’s a keeper !
Tasty food, great service. Only issue rather loud.
Always great food, service and value. I never have to worry that dinner will be special!
I was surprised they do not serve bread. Not very French...
Great food, awesome presentation.
My only critic: too cold, air conditioning blasting when it is cold outside
Haven't been for years, but now live across the street & will going in for drinks & apps!
The service was kind of slow and the food wasn’t as good as the time I went before also the acoustics aren’t very good in there and it was hard to talk
Elegantly retro decor. Tasteful design. Definitely worth making a reservation as the dining space filled up quickly. Food served in family servings. Portions were satisfying. BBQ ribs appetizer, roasted sea bass, grilled salmon with gold and black noodles, pad Thai noodles, duck fried rice all delicious! Grilled chicken was ok. 4 out 5 for the service which was excellent except for the need for staff to uncomfortably reach across patrons at our table in order to reach dishes; forcing patrons to lean out of the way. We had a higher expectation. Some of the reaching that was due to table position and limited space in between tables. Overall, we all thoroughly enjoyed the dining experience.
Absolutely loved it! Food was delicious and service impeccable. I’m still dreaming about the sizzling catfish and fried rice...
The desserts were also outstanding- top notch. We will be back here for sure.
