Immaculate and intimate setting for a birthday celebration with family. Food is presented and prepared in fine detail. Decor is elegant and grand. Great service.

Fu 1039 takes an elegant, refined approach to many of Shanghai's well-known dishes, like red-braised pork and smoked fish. What's more, the restaurant occupies a renovated villa that lends an air of time-travel chic, transporting you back to a posh pre-war colonial era.

You cannot help but be impressed by the restaurant set in a beautiful mansion with a landscaped lawn and lovely outdoor lighting. However, I didn't appreciate being made to wait out in the dark feeding the mozzies looking at what would be our table taking forever to get set up by the very slow moving staff!!! Finally being seated, it took ages for someone to come around to take our order and I have to say I never expected this level of service from a highly reputed establishment. Akin to being forced to order more than we wanted, we were eventually ready to dine on what turned out to be very average local fare with service that was just bad all around. Very very disappointed. I have been to their sister restaurant Fu 1088 and it was night and day in comparison!!! Needless to say, I will not be returning to this restaurant nor can I recommend it in good conscience.

We went there on the basis of TA reviews. It was a beautiful setting, lovely piano music in the background and attentive and helpful staff. The maitre 'd helped us chose local dishes....we liked 3 not so sure about the 4th!...but that was probably because we insisted on local and not what we knew we would like! it is very near metro line 2...2 stations out from west nanjing road.....easier than a taxi!

Friends told me this is a must-go restaurant in Shanghai. Quite an enjoyable evening dining in an old mansion with piano playing (though playing Xmas song in March). The sauce of drunken chicken was set in crushed ice, and crab roe on toast was superb. However, the cold dish of marinated jelly fish did not taste as good as the “Jesse Restaurant” which we had tried before.
Make reservation if you don’t want to wait for an hour by the piano sofa.
