The food here was great both times I ate here. I have ordered the short ribs and the seared tuna and they were both cooked very well and tasty. The lobster mashed potatoes was definitely lacking compared to some places I've eaten but still good. Wife ordered black cod and the skirt steak and they were both very good. The... More

The name is deceiving. This is Asian fusion not Chinese food. Too expensive for the quality of the food. Overpriced and mediocre lunch. So many other great places to visit that it's not worth wasting time here.

A dear friend of mine met me for lunch in December at the China Grill in the CBS building. The hors d'oeuvres were great - the scallop dish was amazing, so was the duck. By the time the main courses came we were pretty full but they were so delicious we ate them all. The service was terrific - attentive... More

On dec 27, a very busy but excellent place to enjoy high quality fusion / Asian food, with quick and efficient service and dynamic atmosphere. Appropriate for families and large groups (upon availability). A good address near Rockfeller Center and 5th Avenue.

We went here before the Radio City Music hall Christmas Spectacular because of closeness to venue and the reviews were pretty good! If it hadn't been for the manager removing our drink charges and giving us desserts comp, I would not have not wanted to pay our bill which would have been $300 or more for 5 persons, due to...

If I could give a zero star I would. If you want Chinese food do not step foot into this place. It's really bad. I mean horrendous. The only thing Chinese about this place is the name and some of the names on the menu. I never thought that I would have my worse meal ever in NY. Over priced.... More

Despite the title a have to say that this restaurant has little to do with Chinese food. It looks Chinese with a strong American flavour. It isn't bad but a disappointment given the expectations. Waiter service was at best average and the deserts very poor. I ordered a soufflé maybe stupid in a Chinese restaurant but it tasted like glue,... More

I hadn't been back to this restaurant for a few years and found it to still be awesome. Food prep is amazing and distinct. Great ambiance and service is excellent. A must if you are in NYC.
