Booked a reservation, drove all the way there only to find out you were closed!

Extremely unprofessional. If you planned to close, you should have called or canceled my reservation.

They overheard it was my daughter’s birthday and although we were going home to have cake and didn’t order dessert, they still surprised us with a complimentary slice of cake with a birthday candle in it for her at the end of our dinner. Service was outstanding.

The food was over salted and I was a bit disappointed in that but it was my birthday dinner so I swallowed it with pride. It was my first time there and I expected a valued meal but it didn't meet the mark. The appetizers were good but not the dinner entrees.

Considering the actual situation, were we ate outside, it was still an a wonderful experience.
Lot he story of the restaurant, and how amazing it used to be in the 80ties.

Mr. Chow is pretty otherworldly. It's the kind of "just for special occasions" spot that you want to invent new special occasions for.

We were seated inside the restaurant on 57th st which had absolutely no atmosphere. The setting itself was very disappointing. I appreciate with covid that restaurants have to take precautions but many other restaurants have achieved this while maintaining a good ambience, Mr Chows did not.

Sadly not the mr chow I knew from years past. While I understand the dilemma all nyc restaurants are going thru, I don't think rushing your diners along is good move if you want them to return. Every 5 .minutes someone kept coming over to touch the plates. Annoying to say the least and the food was just so so. Oh well, on to the next

We went to Mr. Chow, which has been a long-time favorite, to order the Peking duck. On requesting it, the waiter told us it would be an hour of preparation time. We asked him to put the order in right away and we would wait. He told us at least twice more that it would be an hour wait. We ordered drinks and appetizers and the Peking duck came in about 40 minutes. It was delicious as usual and worth the wait. Prior to leaving, we told the maitre d' that the waiter was really discouraging us from ordering Peking duck, whether intentionally or not. It's important to let customers know that there is a wait of maybe 40 to 60 minutes, but the staff should not be discouraging customers from ordering a signature dish. The maitre 'd was very solicitous and the rest of the staff was great. The meal was excellent and we will go back again.

One of the mysteries of NYC: Mr. Chow's cuisine virtually without exception is totally, completely and unreservedly tasteless. It's incredible. A walk-in Chinese joint on E. 86th St has better tasting food. And as Billy Crystal would say, the portions are ridiculously small too which would not be a problem if the prices were not through the roof. The atmosphere is upbeat. The restaurant has done a good job of dealing with social distancing. The service at times is "neglectful" which of course adds insult to the considerable injury of dinner here. I hasten to add that Sonja, the maître d'hôtel, is a true Princess who works tirelessly to make everyone happy including making up for the shoddy service. So if you have a wad to waste, put Mr. Chow at the top of your list.
