“Best view in Shanghai”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

Recently enjoyed a great dinner out on the balcony with a business group. The view from the old side is unmatched. Service was professional and the restaurant has an impressive wine collection. There is a “secret” wine room on the 2nd floor you need to get an invitation to get in but worth asking.
I had red snapper, others had steak. I found the food good but nothing truly impressive. Portions a bit small but presentation done quite well.
Go for the view.

“Best on the Bund”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

Most Bund locations offer great views but lackluster food. The House of Roosevelt bucks the trend with an amazing wine list and world class food....oh yeah, the view is amazing too.

“Great views, hip vibe, but lacks a wow”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

Food was good... Solid! But lacked a wow. Flavors, presentation and cooking was all good, and very competent... But a little on the boring side, nothing knocked our socks off. Cocktails were well done... Hats off. Views , vibe and solid menu makes it a need to try at least once, but not sure how many times I would head back and make it a regular spot.

“Fantastic view and quality”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

The view over the Bund towards Pudong from the 8th floor is brilliant.You can catch the lift and go to the Rooftop Bar and grab a beer at ususal tope end price. Alternatively you can eat but check the prices first as it's very expensive especially if wine included. Excellent service. My favorite spot to chill in Shanghai as it's quiet after the busy busy street activity.

“Beautiful Rooftop Bar but average food”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

The view from the Rooftop bar is one of the "must see" in all of Shanghai to look across The Bund at the TV tower at night and watch the boats float by. The drinks are reasonably priced and service good. For the restaurant though the food was good it was not the best. The Beef Carpaccio with Truffle Oil was far better than the Turbot dish. The service however, was top notch and I commend them on that.
