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.

Great dinner

We bought a groupon for dinner for four people for 130.00. It included sake pairing. We couldn't pick our food it was chosen for us. The price was very reasonable.appetizer main course and dessert.. We had a scallop. Then some eggplant with pasta. And a dessert.

We went to the China Grill for the first time in many years and found the experience disappointing. While the service was fine, the food was really average and uninspiring. I expected better as it used to be really good. The signature spinach salad was greasy rather than crisp and light. The duck was okay not great and the dumplings... More

Staff were very welcoming and knowledgeable. We asked for some recommendations and were not disappointed. The food was lovely, not cheap but worth every penny.

The food was delicious. High quality, fresh ingredients expertly prepared. Don't expect traditional Chinese fare -- the food is more Asian inspired nouvelle cuisine.

This is a fantastic restaurant. We went during restaurant week and the choice was amazing. The staff are friendly and helpful, the cocktails delicious and it is great value for money. We visited New York twice over an 18 day period and were so impressed the first time went back a second.

Good choice of restaurant if you want a different and complex Asian fusion. It's not true Chinese food nor a grill, in which the waiter lets you know before hand that the name of the restaraunt isn't true to the food. Food was nicely prepared, flavorful, and consistent to the menu. One downside was that the ceilings were high so... More

China Grill here in New York is probably one of the most reliable and delicious restaurants imaginable. Always innovating, always bringing some funky new thing to the menu. They never rest and that is a great thing! I've been a frequent flyer there for 15 years or more and hope to continue being one for the next fifteen ENJOY LOVE... More

The China Grill Restaurant on west 53rd at 6th Ave. Is a place I make sure to go every time I am in NYC!! I always order the Confucious Chicken Salad, with sesame ginger dressing, and I can never finish it!! This time we started with Spicy Beef Dumplings, which were terrific.

Had the restaurant week lunch there. Big portions for each course, including the scallops and pot stickers as appetizers, the pasta and flank steak for mains, and shared sides and dessert. The pasta was more Italian than Chinese, as were the deserts. Eating outside in the courtyard was nice on a sunny day.

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.
