See and be seen at one of Manhattan’s most celebrated dining spots, where you’ll enjoy a globe-spanning culinary adventure in a spectacular setting. Soaring 30-foot ceilings, multi-level dining platforms, two fully stocked bars and a centralized open kitchen create an eye-popping visual counterpart to the restaurant’s mouth-watering cuisine. During warm weather months, China Grill’s outdoor patio offers a calming oasis away from the bustling midtown streets.

Serious Chinese cuisine in midtown

This small chain (Mexico City, Dubai and soon Miami) has a deep menu but is ideal for groups that want to share with all the appetizers and courses designed to be shared. Have a big appetite, take a largish group of friends and have a good time.

If you are pressed for time or if you just want to meet someone for a quick delicious lunch and you work in the Midtown area, go to China Grill and order one of their Bento Boxes.

Had a tuna tartare that tasted good. Tried the calamari salad. It was good too. Felt the place was a bit dark for a night visit. Ambiance wasn't that friendly, people gazing at you if you had kids. Salmon was also good. Food wise, don't have any comments.

Been coming here for 20 or so years...I don't remember having a bad meal, until yesterday. I was walking by and I was hungry, so I thought I'd grab a quick bite. They have a "bento box" for $20 at lunch. As I only remembered dropping a lot of dinero here, I had the feeling they must be struggling or... More

China Grill is an excellent Asia Fusion resturant. The menu has a good range of offerings. Everything I tried was good. The Duck Fried Rice could be a meal in itself!

I highly suggest the tasting menu. We had a party of 6 and it was an impressive amount of food, excellently prepared and presented. If you are running short on time this might not be the best choice as it is served at a leisurely pace not hurried. (Not a criticism though) Service was spectacular but not overbearing. When we...

We were a party of five. For most of us the food was just OK at best. My short ribs were terrible. We ordered apps to dessert. The soufflé was very good. There are much better places to dine in NYC, especially at this price point.

Despite the gloomy interior in the ground floor of a very large office block with high ceilings, the staff are friendly and the overall presentation was "good". Portions were a little too large for this type of food resulting in a check that went over the $100 per person mark sharing a main course! Heavy on the sauces garnishing the... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
