It is rare when a new restaurant lives up to the hype. This one did. From the magic design to the food and the service this experience was flawless. The interior design is inspired. It is like walking into a magical movie set. The bar area is crowded and loud. Yet each dining area on the main floor feels intimate. I love that there is space behind the banquettes for the wait staff. This way they are not leaning over the people sitting in the chairs. The food was great. I recommend the Edamame Dumplings. The Cantonese Sping Rolls were great. The Filet and the Lobster and Shrimp dumpling were all really good. The Spring Rolls took a little lon to come out and the waitress took them off of the bill without asking. In fact she told us when she dropped off the check. I would really recommend this place.

The atomosphere is amazing, people all over, chic, and loud. the decor is very interesting. the food however, is decent at best. the edamame dumplings were good but the rest of the meal was average. make sure you get a table in the big room.
This place is outrageous! It's all about the 'scene' and not at all about good food, decent value or proper service! They messed up our reservation, then sat us in the bar for 2 and a half hours, constantly coming and asking us "what was our name again". Then they said "oh you can order food in the bar area" so we ordered...then as soon as they brought out the food, our table was ready, so we all had to move everything (including food and drinks). The food wasn't even good! practically $40 for chow fun!!! This place is sad.

Very disapponting.... unless you like lots of noise, mediocre food and service. We ordered and within 2 minutes came the appetizers and by 5 minutes, having not even finished the appetizer came the entree. As we wrote on our comment card-- VERY UNCOOL. Our entrees werent even hot but we were so annoyed at that point we just wanted to finish and leave. Big BT crowd too...

But I dont care! I do! I think the atmostphere is great (once you get past the overcrowded bar), the service is wonderful, and the food is amazing. The edamame dumplings and the boneless spare ribs are to die for. And, my bill has always been suprisingly low, for a restaurant of this nature. Will go back again, and again, and again.

Please don't listen to these negative reviews. The decor is amazing, the food is absolutely amazing and it is even a lot of fun. I eat at a lot of nice restaurants for my job and this place ranks right at the top. It is both humorous and sad to watch people make themselves feel important by trashing good restaurants.
