It was not crowded when we arrived. It was happy hour and we ordered 2 drinks 2 orders of spring rolls and 2 waters. We received our drinks. Waited 20 minutes for one order of spring rolls and never received waters. We were told the other order of spring rolls was coming but by then we were done. Then she... More

This restaurant was very conveniently located across from our hotel. The service was good and the food was fresh and delicious. You could tell they actually cook it when you order instead of microwaving an old plate prepared hours or days before. I came back three more times because of how good the food was.

I walked here from the nearby Marriott and was one of very few in the restaurant. The food, staff and environment were very clean, pleasant and a little bit retro. I very much enjoyed the food, service and environment.

A great place for a meeting with friends while discussing business over dinner. Very quiet and great customer service, but most importantly excellent food.

I LOVE Mandarin Cove! he food is always delicious and the serving sizes are huge! The service is good but sometimes a little rushed. The menu offers many selections for every taste. I highly recommend the Mongolian Beef!!! Their potstickers are another favorite!

This is walking distance to the Kellar. Very friendly staff and even thought it gets very busy before a play, they do their best to meet everyones needs. The food is excellent.

We were in search of simple, Chinese dinner... boy are we sorry we landed here. We were skeptical because it is such a large restaurant and there was no one there on a Friday at 6:30 on a clear, warm night. We should have run when the pot stickers we sticky, and doughy... The fried rice was pale white, scrambled... More

I tagged along with my husband when he went to Portland for business. His meeting ran late. While waiting for him to finish, I checked out the Mandarin Cove on TripAdvisor because it was right across the street. Encouraged by the ratings, we had dinner there before hitting the road. Unfortunately, the ratings were way more positive than our experience.... More

I've visited this restaurant with family and friends a handful of times, all before enjoying a concert, ballet or some other event at the Keller Auditorium. It is within walking distance and always "hits the spot" when you need some real food before the show. You can always buy snack foods and drinks at the Auditorium later. I've always been... More

After a long day at a conference in the nearby Marriott, we were tired and needed to eat nearby. Mandarin Cove was close, so we gave it a shot. Good thing we did as the food here was excellent. As a New Yorker who grew up on Chinese food, I am a bit picky, but I tell ya what, this... More
