    The food was okay, but the drinks weren't really special. I wouldn't recommend the lobster, but the Peking duck was good. The service was okay. The interior was beautiful, but it wasn't as we had expected. We spent $750 for four people, but we weren't really happy.

    The service was great! The food was pretty good appetizers were the best! This was my second time here, the first time I ordered the sweetest sour chicken and it was good. This last time I ordered the Beijing chicken and it was not that good. I would not recommend ordering that however, appetizers were great, which included spring rolls, chicken dumplings, spare ribs, honey shrimp. The drinks were good, however very pricey my husband and I, along with my sister and her husband spent $500, including 20% gratuity for a party of four. Everyone got a drink, one person got an extra drink, everyone got an entrée and we had about four appetizers. Yep, $500!

    The Luxe Brunch was so good. The pork soup dumplings were my favorite. The wonton soup was also delicious.

    I recently dined at Philippe Chow and had an outstanding experience. The ambiance was sophisticated and inviting, and the food was exquisite, from the succulent Peking duck to the delicate dim sum. Our server, Daniel, made the evening even more special with his attentive, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic service. His excellent recommendations and warm demeanor enhanced our dining experience. Overall, Philippe Chow exceeded our expectations, and we can't wait to return. Highly recommended!

    Returned after a long hiatus - all good. The scallion pancakes are my favorite and never disappoint. My friend got the filet mignon w/ green beans - the chef and server made sure she got the black bean sauce substitute. Tried it - delish!! I had the crispy duck and it was the same delicacy as I remembered. The portions are very generous, the service can't be beat and while we didn't get cocktails and dessert, no doubt they're just as fabulous as everything else. Will be going back sooner this time!

    Food was good, even though we came for dim sum and the steamer was not working, we enjoyed the meal. The service however was nowhere near up to expectations. Slow, disorganized and our waiter had that “I’d rather be anywhere else than here” attitude. I figured it was just a bad night for him, but the tables around us were also complaining. Tip to management- walk around and keep an eye on things - the clues that some people were not happy were very obvious.

    The drinks were good …but unfortunately for me, this didn’t live up to the hype. I’ve had better quality food at my local carryout. The rice in my shrimp fried rice was hard and the shrimp were scarce. The vegetables in the shrimp spring rolls were tough and hard to chew. While the noodles in my shrimp lo mein were dry and lacking in flavor. Now tried a variety of different dishes but again, nothing to write home about. Maybe I just didn’t make the right menu selections but this was disappointing and certainly not worth the $400 I paid for the meal.
