Chinese friends took us to this fancy restaurant overlooking the Bund and the river for lunch. Having eaten only traditional Chinese food for a while this was a welcome break with western cuisine. Nothing at all to complain about. Friendly and attentive staff, excellent meat and tasty fish courses.

You can have lunch on the rooftop of one of the oldest Shanghai's building. French food is well balanced with price. Place is formal with a spectacular view of Pudong and river. Price is worthy as during weekdays you can have luch for less than 20 euros. Recommended!

We went to this restaurant to visit the roof top bar for a cocktail we didn't eat here. They have a very good cocktail menu and the cocktails are quite good. What makes this place so outstanding is the view from the roof of the river and amazing high rise buildings on the other side. Especially at night when everything... More

I write this review with some regret. The Roosevelt Sky was one of the first restaurants along the Bund I enjoyed in Shanghai. I have over the years taken many foreign visitors there for both the view and the food. Unfortunately the last two visits have been consistently disappointing. The quality of the food has declined some but the pace... More

Elegance. The height of luxury and attention overlooking the Bund and the skyline of Shanghai. The ultimate in food, atmospher and service is The House of Roosevelt.

We took a group for a business dinner here and thought the views across the Bund were stunning. However the food is very bland - a sort of Western modern / fusion menu and very overpriced. The menu is also overlong and exhausting to navigate. Much worse than the food though, was the service. We clearly had money to spend,... More

A friend took us up to Roosevelt Sky Bar overlooking but Bund. We prefer to have a late nite coffee but only wine and drinks are served in the late night. The red wine was just right for the day. When in Shanghai and you want to leave the crowds down on the Bund, just take a short walk up... More

While the view is amazing, the service was horrible. The food was also very disappointing- it wasn't bad, just not worth how much it cost. I found a hair in my entree and they didn't offer to comp it or anything. There are other places on the Bund with the same view and much better food and service.
