We had one of the specials....sizzling beef and shrimp...outstanding. Our waiter, Erik, was one if the most personable waiters. Thanks to the chef and Erik for making our dinner wonderful. We will return soon. Another plus is the sheer ambiance of the dining room in this historic hotel. Softly lit chandeliers made the room glow, the linens sparkle, and the... More

Went with a bunch of people from work. The dishes were delicious with tons of food. Strawberry chicken, anything cantonese and General Tsao were awesome! App's were great great as was the service.

Been going to Peking for over 20 years (that in its self says something). It's one of those special places. As regulars we are treated like family. You go here for the experience. Atmosphere takes you back. If you love history, you'll love this. The bar is old school beautiful. Servers and bartenders wear ties. You can almost hear the... More

I took two of my children here for supper. I almost fell over when I received the bill. $65.00 for three people for dinner? ARE YOU INSANE?????????? Never supporting this establishment again. The food was definitely NOT worth $65.00.

The Peking is in a dated hotel building, with a hint of stale smoke from an era gone bye, as you enter. Once inside, the decore offers you an opportunity to envision the aforementioned "era gone bye", and enjoy a fine meal with good service. The usually attentive service also feels as though it were from a time when Customers... More

Nothing fancy and the food was so-so will not go back again. Not a true Chinese restaurant and the food said so.
