The Green Prawn dish was not prepared correctly. unfortunately we ordered it for two so both entrees were a problem. we’ve had the dish before, and requested it be made again and waiter did not budge. he offered to bring seasoning instead. i’ve never had something so strange happen. ended up getting an additional portion of the 3rd dish, not what we went for. big disappointment.

Philippe Chow was a great experience! Loved the ambience. It was a little noisy so we weren't really able to hear our waiter. Other than that the food and the experience was a success. I would definitely go again.

The food is delicious! My party ordered different appetizers which included dumplings, chicken satay, ribs, and pork fried rice. The service was great! We were seated in the wine cellar which was great! Can’t wait to go back!

The food is good and vaguely chinese. We experienced the lunch specials which were all rather sweet, as many American Chinese restaraunts prepare their food. Nothing out standing about the food. The service and ambience were excellent, aside from a matrie dame who does not look customers in the eye. Last, the restaraunt is expensive, in line with most of the other restaraunts in the area.

I received an email were you told me: “We missed you at Philippe Chow - Uptown”. This is false. I attended the reservation at 2 pm, with my wife and daughter. We choose 3 fixed menu. Was a splendid time with the family.

The food was very good. Something did aggravate me, however. My guest and I ordered iced tea. It was a tiny glass of tea, mostly ice. We both asked for a refill and was charged $5.00 for each glass. $20.00 for watered down iced tea is horrible.

Always nice to visit Philippe Chow.Food is consistently good. So glad we can hear each other's conversations. Staff is always friendly. It was particularly nice that our birthday guest was served desert with a sparkling torch candle that delighted all of us.

Had to wait 40 minutes for the table (with reservation), music in the lobby/bar area was very loud, not much quieter in the dining area (couldn't hear the waiter the first time he spoke). But the food was delicious! We had green prawns, Beijing chicken and apple/almond tart with Ice cream. Cocktails were tasty as well. Fortunately we went there at the later hour (reservation was for 9pm), don't know how noisy/busy it's earlier in the evening.

Spare ribs were excellent. Vegetable lo Mein was too salty to eat. Fried duck salad had too much vinegar dressing. Service was very good.

The food was incredible. We got the salt and pepper lobster that was amazing, chicken satay, soup dumplings, lo mein and bok Choy. Would probably not return due to the terrible service, attitudes of the staff, inattentiveness of the waiters. For such a high priced/quality restaurant, the service should reflect. Very disappointed.

The food is beyond awesome. Many compliments to the chefs and staff. Always exquisite. Service impeccable from hostesses to waitresses to busing staff. Everyone is warm and accommodating. My one and only complaint is that the tables in the first dining room downstairs (across from the bar area but down the steps) are entirely TOO CLOSE together. When dining at a fine restaurant I shouldn’t have to hear the entire conversation of the patrons dining next to me and the table next to theirs and the table next to theirs and so on. I also shouldn’t have to experience the gluteus maximus of the patron dining next to me directly in my face when they get up - while I’m eating. It
was not romantic at our anniversary dinner... actually offensive and Phillipes should seriously consider reconfiguring the seating so that restaurant patrons can move freely between tables. It’s awkward and very uncomfortable with the few inches that currently exist. I’m not overweight at all and I had to squeeze to get out to go to the restroom (which is too dark - another issue- I can’t fix my makeup if I can’t see my reflection) and as I maneuvered to get out, I was frighteningly close to making something spill off of my table or my neighbors. Please think about taking out a table or two to make more room and lessen the decibel in the dining room. Other than that, I’m in love.

Philippe was better than ever. The prix fixed lunch has always been wonderful, but the seasoning was the best it has been. The brownie with coconut sorbet and whipped cream was delicious.
