    Great Cosmopolitan!

    We recently went to the China Grill while in NY to see Wicked. I thought the atmosphere was loud and bustling - but exciting. The food was overpriced, but extremely tasty. Our waiter was adorable, and very good at his job. The highlight for me, however, was a delicious Cosmopolitan! I would recommend this restaurant, and in fact am heading back next weekend!

    Disappointing

    My husband and I visited this restaurant last night before we saw Spamalot - I was expecting incredible food and large portions but it was disappointing. $32.00 for the Grilled Shrimp Entree' that yielded a grand total of six pieces of shrimp - and our server had actually given us an extra piece so we could each have three. The Entree's are definitely over priced and I was expecting spectacular and only received 'good'. The accompaniments were much larger in size but still not great tasting. The veggie fried rice tasted bland and the crispy spinach made my husband queasy because it was like eating straight grease. Even though our experience was less than perfect, I will try this restaurant again - I think it may be better with a large group because it will be less expensive with more people and we'll be able to sample more dishes. Final word - My first experience was 'Okay'.

    Large Portions?

    I was very excited to go to C.G., since I've read various reviews praising the execution of dishes and of course, the large portions. It was to my great disappointment when I found the food to taste, only from average to good, especially since it does not warrant the high cost. 2ndly, I was appalled by the small portion size: beef dumplings were a mere 6-7 small pcs. with a tuff of watercress (where is the huge portion?!) and for $17.75, I could get the same for a fraction of the cost from a regular Chinese restaurant and not have missed the quality difference too much. Our entrees were the fish special (grouper) and the shrimp plate from the regular menu; both were unremarkable . The grouper was very average tasting and for $34.00, I still cannot believe it wasn't better. My companion had the shrimp plate, and although it was better executed, for the quality and size, it did not warrant the large price tag. If you value your money and tastebuds, don't bother with China Grill; you will be happier getting a steak sandwich from one of those outdoor grill-trucks just outside of the restaurant. China Grill, like much of NY restaurants is becoming in one word: hype.

    How Wonderful

    While in New York to see "Wicked" we had reservations for lunch at the China Grill. I have to say what a palate and eye pleaser. . I honestly left fully satiated. My only regret is that I couldn't sample a taste of everything. From the decor to our waiter and other staff help it was definitely worth the trip. A must on the menu is the chocolate sampler. I will be back.

    What's with all the hype?

    Went here on the basis of these review and to be honest found it lacking! Yes, the portions were huge but I found it to be quantity over quality. To be fair, maybe it was just what we ordered, but I wasn't very impressed by the space either (reminded me of the cheesecake factory - only with less atmosphere). The whole meal all we could smell with something burning in the kitchen - the whole restaurant was filled with acrid smoke. Very unpleasant. The waitstaff was excellent. For food we had the crispy calamari salad (disgustingly bitter - had to just pick the calamari out), the vegetable dumplings (good but very different - were more like ravioli; were in a spicy tomato sauce and all), and the strip steak over lo mein (fine but nothing to write home about). Desert was a cream cheese mouse (not my thing). I wouldn't go back.

    Expect to enjoy!

    I have been an avid China Grill patron and have taken my family and friends to enjoy the experience as well. You will not be disappointed. I recommend the Crispy Calamari Salad. Wonderfully unique. I don't believe there is a bad selection on the menu. The ambiance is everything you would expect and the service is beyond great. I would suggest you treat yourself to the experience. Expect to enjoy!

    Has to be the Best Restaurant in NYC!

    I first went to China Grill 3 years ago for my anniversary, right before seeing a broadway show. I was blown away - not only by the food - but the great service too. The place has a great ambiance - the perfect place for a date or special occasion. The waiter was so helpful - he helped us pick out the perfect wine to go with our dinner. Usually, when you go to even a moderately "fancy" restaurant - you have to worry about the small portions of food you get. Not at China Grill! When you order dinner - you have to order 1 meal and share! When you go - make sure you have the tuna sashimi appetizer - DELISH! For the past 3 years, China Grill has been an anniversary tradition for me. I look forward to going all year long! It's my favorite place to eat in the city! Make sure you check it out - you won't be sorry! Reservations are not necessary but highly recommended on a Friday or Saturday night. See you there!
