Not that I do not like chinese food, but this restaurant is a must if you are in New York City and in Midtown. Whether it is for lunch or dinner, promise you will not be disappointed! The ambience is wonderful whether it is a business luncheon or dinner, family with children or date night. And there is an after... More

I've gone to NYC for the last 5 years in a row, and the calamari salad at the China Grill is what I order every time. The first time I had it, it was incredible, however this year it was sub-par. The calamari was cold and chewy and there wasn't as much as in previous years. I hope that this... More

It's been a good 3 years since my last visit. Since it was restaurant week, we had to go. Tried my favorite calamari salad and it was still as awesome. The banana in the box was still in the menu and it can't be missed. You should try it. I went with two co-workers. It was their first visit and... More

Forgot how consistent China Grill can be - hadn't dined there in years and wandered in for lunch because the Moderne was closed. Enjoyed delicious cocktails and some remarkable dumplings and pork cheek appetizers.

This place serves fantastic cocktails. I loved the Cosmo. We also had appetizers and they were great. The entire atmosphere was sleek design and wide open space. We enjoyed excellent service. I also thought that there were unexpected things on the menu, such as lobster pancakes, calamari salad, duck pancakes. I will probably go back and try other items on... More

Well located near Rockefeller Center and City Center and Carnegie Hall, It has amazing large appetizers and deserts, worth sharing. The food quality is excellent, and the selections are somewhat unique. I tink it is better than Mr Chou and much better priced, tho not cheap.

Trendy fusion restaurant, had lunch during the restaurant week in august. The tuna and grilled beef was so goood, tender and nicely seasoned. Interior is trendy. When crowded the volume of speech gets too loud. Place worth to visit and try the food.

Have eaten here several times and still find the food delicious. Portions are large so make sure you have plenty of people to share with. This time we ended up arriving during restaurant week so the meal was a particular bargain. Would go back in a heartbeat

During restaurant week a friend of mine decided to got to dinner. She chose China grill and I was a little disappointed but i decided to try it out. I figured how many ways can you do Chinese food? We ordered the calamari salad and lobster pancake for appetizer. With my first bite I was pleasantly surprised. The lobster pancake... More
