    Two ducks on the pond

    We came to China Grill with a party of nine...this probably wasn't the best restaurant to pick for such a large group since everything is meant to be shared. However, it gave us the chance to sample many different dishes. First of all, it was VERY noisy. We're in our 20s and we couldn't even hear across the table! Definitely not a good place for a first date! The waiter was helpful in helping us to decide how many appetizers, entrees, and desserts to get for our table. For appetizers, the caeser salad was delicious. It was absolutely huge! But watch out! All of the portions aren't as big...a shrimp appetizer only had four shrimp! We were suprised when our order of crab cakes came 20 minutes after the other appetizers...not too impressive. For entrees, we recommend the tuna, wok veggies, and especially the crispy spinach. All of the dishes had a kick to them. It didn't please our picky dinner companion. And the waiters definitely made sure to fill those water glasses back up...keeping the attendents in the bathroom rolling in the dollars. Dessert was probably the most exciting part of the meal. The banana boat was exquisite, made of ice cream, cookies, bananas, and chocolate sauce. It was more than enough for the nine of us. A unique selection of teas, including a very good pear tea, was available. Jeff Chodorow, the owner of China Grill, has done better with restaurants like Pure Food and Wine, but he has certainly done worse (see Rocco's). We recommend giving it a try. As to whether we are going to come back,..we're going to give a few other fusion restaurants a chance first.

    Just Fair

    I went here last night with my boyfriend for restaurant week and was slightly disappointed. The service was pretty much subpar. I don't know if they just didn't care about the people who they knew were there for restaurant week, or if that's how they always are, but they were very unattentive, they brought us our appetizers before we even had water on our table, and no one came over even once to check how our meal was. I must say the food was definitely better than the service. For appetizers we had the calamari salad which was huge and delicious the lamb baby backribs..which were mosly all fat. For our entree we shared the strip steak which was amazing.

    Splendid

    This is a great place to enjoy plenty of food and great drinks such as Mojitos, Sangria and others. My boyfriend took me to this rest sometime in March as a surprise. I was really delighted with the sexy ambiance. Is classy but not stuffy. The servings are plenty of food. I highly recommend it.. Planning to visit again with my girlfriends..

    Good Time

    We went at on Saturday Night 10:00pm, there were plenty of people but also plenty of room. I know this place sometimes gets very crowded. The grilled martini was spectacular! We were told by the waitress that commonly it's two appetizers and one entree per couple all for sharing. But forget it, we thought it was way to much food. The lamb ribs were awesome; perfectly sweet sour which we complimented it with the lobster mashed potatoes which we were curious about. (mash and bits of lobster..ehh) The calamari salad came next and it was disturbingly boring and tasteless. Then came the entree a flank steak with noodles. My spouse enjoyed it more than me since I was stuffed already and I found it to be to sweet. Overall China Grill is a good restaurant that should be tried at least once. Oh, service was great!

    A date

    The food is pretty good, although the appetizers we ordered were as large as the entree (and in our opinion, better). Atmosphere is sexy, service was outstanding, and gave excellent recommendations. However, this is not the place to go for a first date or quiet conversation. The noise level rivals that of a Metallica concert.

    Top notch food

    An unexpected pleasure with the taste and visual appeal of the menu choices. Portions are large and excellent mixture of tastes. Restaurant was noisy but service was excellent. Highly recommended.

    Great place to take Clients

    I took two clients to China Grill last week. They loved it. It was definitely better than my first visit. We had a great waiter and delicious Mango Martinis. We ordered two appetizers and two entrees to share. It ended up being too much food for us. The dessert was excellent as well. I would go back only if I could write it off as a business expense. I bit to expensive for a night out with the girls.
