Made the mistake of going to Jade last month. I have never encountered such rude and uncaring servers or managers. The food was mediocre at best - the chicken was rubbery, the rice wasn't cooked properly and the appetizers were cold. The worst though was that it was all covered in grease! For a place that claims to be healthy,... More

The essence of this quiet Chinese restaurant on the edge of downtown Highland Park was reflected in our recent family dinner -- nothing about which to rave, nor to be greatly aggrieved. The atmosphere is quiet and neighborhood -- the service is friendly -- and the food is comfortably middle-brow. Egg rolls were light and tasty, for those so attracted.... More

I really enjoy this place !! It is not a typical chinese restaurant. It is elegant and refined. You can talk and relax while eating delicious cuisine. It is the place to go when you are tired from shopping and waiting in line and just want to chill. I almost hate to speak too highly of this place in fear... More

The food here is always good but the service today was not. If you want some of the best egg roles in Chicago come here.

The orange chicken is amazing and it is a very diverse menu and classy interior. We also enjoy the carry out and delivery service. Always impressed!

Great presentation and flavors! We really enjoyed our dinner! We had the chicken lettuce wraps and orange chicken. The seaweed salad looked good too! We'll have to try it next time.

I'm often not fond of Chinese food due to the greasy dishes. This restaurant is an exception. The food is perfectly prepared in a light, incredible manner. The flavors are bright and exciting. Unusual for a Chinese restaurant is their wine list. It is extensive and very well thought out. Service is personal and efficient. This is one of the... More

So disappointed. We have dined in restaurant before and it was very good. Picked up take out tonight and nothing worked. The kung pao chicken should have been called kung pao celery. The orange chicken was dry and stale tasting and the crab rangoon were completely lackluster. The sauce served with them was orange gel. Don't know what to say... More

Nice place in downtown Highland Park. The meal left me feeling surprisingly good. Chinese food can be heavy, with the oils, sauces, and starchy rice. But at Jade China Bistro, I didn't feel the heaviness. The meal was rather light! The restaurant is a bit on the dark side, which makes it romantic, but annoying if you can't read the... More

Food was bad, owner was rude and acted distastefully toward my party. Not a good restaurant, not a good experience and not good management. Stay away.
