Love this restaurant. The staff is perfectly attentive and kind, food is excellent and fresh and atmosphere is cozy. I recently dined here for the second time and will be back again!

Generally the food has been very good with only occasional lapses with too salty or not warm enough. Problem was in ordering take-out I was told they were too busy to take my order. Felt like a second class citizen just because I take out. I took out regularly but not any more.

This place is very popular for two main reasons: wonderful food in a fine atmosphere. The cuisine stands above an ordinary Chinese restaurant like an NBA center stands above a midget. I especially love the mock eel. Make your dinner reservations as far in advance as you can, as they often get fully booked and won't have a table for... More

Needed a reservation. 5 of us had a great time, seated at a large table with the red lazy susan in the middle of the table. Service was very friendly. The tasting menu was not available for dinner since they were busy. Dumplings were a little above average. We really enjoyed the mock eel (shiitake mushrooms) but we agreed they... More

Greeted and seated promptly. Nice kettle of jasmine tea served hot right away. Attentive service. Atmo is pleasing and unassuming, but light level was a bit low for a lunch time setting. I ordered the special Szechuan beef noodles and a Char Siu Bau (steamed then baked pork bun). Lots of lunchtime business, plenty of diners during this Tuesday. Clearly... More

I try to make it to Single Pebble several times a year for that special tasting menu because it simply is the biggest bargain around for this level of cuisine. The concept is a simple one: everyone at your table gets what the chef is preparing on the lunch menu, whether the specials of the day or the regular menu.... More

If your taste buds go to nouvelle Chinese when visiting this fair city, Single Pebble never fails to satisfy and amaze. A tad on the $$$ side. Said to be the best Chinese north of NYC. I am not qualified to second that, though this establishment is highly recommended by locals.

This restaurant confuses me somewhat. The menu looks like a Chinese menu. The food is very good. Yet, while the food looks Chinese and has the Chinese ingredients, it doesn't quite seem Chinese. I don't know how to put it into words. Maybe the physical plant leads to that feeling. The restaurant itself looks like it should be serving nouvelle... More

Order the tasting menu. It was fabulous, and we got to try dishes we wouldn't have ordered otherwise. The crispy beef with sesame seeds was a favorite, but we also liked all the dumplings, the soup, the vegetables, the swordfish dish...

We went here for dinner without reservations, but they still was able to seat us. Unfortunately, it was outside. The evening was nice so we agreed. The waiter came out and gave us the skinny on the menu. I think we have a different idea of what family style is. This is what they called their entrees. I define "family... More
