We've been to Fu 1088 many times and we love the food there. The restaurant is housed in a mansion decorated with antiques from all over china (at least that's what we were told). It's pretty charming if you have time to walk around and look at the collectibles after dinner. Guests dine in private rooms which is nice, but I don't like the small room in the attic, which is quite small and dark. It does have a minimun order charge, around RMB300 per person, excluding alcholic drinks.
As for the food, Shanghainese food tend to be on the sweeter side. The dishes that we like are:
Pork belly in hongshao (sweet) sauce (a must!)
Deep fried fish in sweet soy sauce
Steak on a bone with hongshao style coating
Egg with caviar
Tofu with hairy crab meat
