Overall a disappointing experience. King prawns with (cold) eggplant salsa were not a good combination and lamb had to be returned as it was over cooked. View would be good on a clear night or better during the day but for USD300 (2 glasses wine only), no dessert, no ambiance and ordinary service, there are far better options (with views)... More

The view from the 56th floor of Jin Mao Tower is just amazing. The menu offer reasonable variety, however a bit too sea food oriented. It was annoying that in a high class place like that they miss ingredients for the dishes offered in the menu. For a ham & Ruculla Pizza... they run out of ham, and for a... More

This restaurant is all about the view. We were here for lunch. The fixed menu is a very good price with 2 and 3 course options on offer. Expect to pay top dollar for anything extra like a bottle of water or coffee. As previous reviewers mention the food is fair but by no means worth the journey. The fixed... More

There are really only two reasons why you would go to Cucina - either for the view or because you are staying at the hotel. Sadly its not for food. There is nothing necessarily 'wrong ' with the food but is just bland and boring. If you are looking for great italian then i would suggest trying else where.

The Italian choice of the Grand Hyatt in the Jin Mao Tower. The taste is Italian, but the real plus is the open view to Pudong. It is a joy for your eyes while you dine properly.

If you wanted to eat at a nice italian restaurant, that gives a good view of Pudong and Puxi, then this is a restaurant you should visit. Even though the restaurant isn't at the highest point in Shanghai, it gives a fabulous view at night when dining near the window. We had ordered the foccacia bread which is delicious with... More

If you want to go for a view in the bund then it's the place to be. You are at the 54th floor dining and then you can have a quick view in the bar cloud 9 at the 87th floor although I don't recommend to stay there as its doors dark and quiet kind of spooky. The food was... More

My wife has never had a better Seafood Pasta and as she have that often this awesome. I had a Pizza which was filled with a lot of stuff and also very good. Service was good. The view is of course fantastic. If it had been a little bit cheaper I would have given the Restaurant 5, but especially the... More

The view of Shanghai was excellent. Our table was right at the window and it was such a nice setting. Honestly, this was the best food I had during my week in Shanghai. The pasta was obviously fresh made and the wine selection was very nice also. It was nice to have a quieter dining experience with such wonderful food... More

Wow! This was my best steak in my life!! Really! I had tenderloin 8oz, it was amazing (price $80 for steak). Restaurant is expensive but WORTH! Amazing view, very nice open kitchen in the middle of the restaurant. Absolutely recommend!
