Mr Chow - Beverly Hills Ratings and Reviews
What a wonderful experience. Food and service A++
My husband and I celebrated our 4th year anniversary. We heard several glowing reviews about Mr. Chow. The service was unparalleled and the food was excellent. Would definitely go there again!!!

We go almost every year for our anniversary. It is a special unique restaurant in Beverly Hills. Service is outstanding, along with the menu. Definitely fit for upscale foodies.

The service was rushed. The whole restaurant smelled horrible. Mr. Chows noodles were basically spaghetti with tomato sauce. Such a disappointment. The crispy beef and the duck were delicious. Seating was weird. We had wires tangled up all over our feet for the table lighting. I guess the only way I'd go back would be to pick up a few dishes for take out.

Awful radio music, which unfortunately doesn't feel coherent with the style of the restaurant. Great food

I've been dining at Mr. Chow since the mid-70s. I've been to the original location in London and the ones in New York (now there are two) and in Beverly Hills. It's my favorite place to celebrate my birthday. I just ask the Brinks truck to park nearby so I can pay. Seriously, it's not an inexpensive restaurant, but I'll say this....it's been in business since the 70s, still crowded all the time and they haven't really changed the menu or the ambience since then, so that's saying something. It's not really classical Chinese food and it's all unbelievably delicious. UN.BE.LIEV.AB.LY!!!!! Best Beijing Duck I've ever had. Some of the extraordinary dishes are: Minced Squab in Lettuce Leaves, Mr. Chow's Noodles, Nine Season Prawns, Crispy Beef, Appetizer Scallops, and as I mentioned above Beijing Duck (they might still call it Peking Duck). The presentation is superb, the service divine. What can I say, it's worth every penny. Four of us went there for my brother's birthday and it was, with a $75 bottle of wine and drinks all around, about $550.00 with tip and worth it. Worth it! It's an experience. Thank you Mr. Chow.

I loved every second at Mr Chows. Service was great, food was amazing and it's well worth the price for the entire experience. We were there 3 hours and could have stayed longer.
Best soup dumplings in LA.
Phenomenal Chinese. Took my girlfriend who hates Chinese food, but she loved it at Mr. Chow's. Only downfall was when two of our entree's were sent to the table next to us and the server never corrected the mistake or bothered to remove the items from our tab. It was easy to overlook their slip up as it was a busy night and everything else was spot on.
long wait even with reservation
great food but we had to wait 30min for our table to be seated even though we were 5 min there before our actual reservation time.

We had s great time. Drinks and food were superb!
It's the legacy more than the food
This is a place where you could bump in to famous people, eat good quality chinese food and enjoy a vibrant scene. But, when you've been here three four times you start to notice that the famous people aren't there anymore, the food is average at best (compared to the price you're paying) and the vibrant scene I mentioned earlier - its just loud, noisy and very cramped!

This location is ghetto and needs a renovation ASAP! I was really disappointed, after my first experience at Mr chow in Las Vegas which was INCREDIBLE all around. I was expecting Beverly Hills to be a beautiful, space... Instead it was very tight, with one table on top of the next. The decor is dated... Feels like any old upscale Chinese place...Nothing special. I was disgusted by the menus... Just simple laminated sheets, that were old and worn. For the prices they charge, you'd think they would invest in a nicer menu... Presentation and ambiance are huge & they've seemed to disregard that! The bar menu was lacking... Not many great options for cocktails. I remembered struggling to choose a cocktail at the Vegas location because they had so many great options! But, the food was good and there was good service, the staff was all helpful and polite . Wondering if Malibu location is nicer, I'd much rather take out from mr chow Beverly Hills than eat there !

The food was at best, mediocre. Guests were crammed in. This is the perfect overpriced tourist trap.
Upscale Modern Asian
My friend and I had the lunch prix fixe, served family style. More than enough food, plenty of options and a great value. $$$ for lunch, but worth it if you appreciate fine dining.

This is THE LA dining experience! We had the two course dinner for two. Loved the steamed dumplings and chicken satay -- wish we got four pieces of chicken, instead of only two. We had steamed rice, two house specialties, and broccoli for our main course. Decor is super sophisticated, clean, modern and crisp. Ended the night crossing paths with Mickey Rourke as he was arriving for a late supper as we left. Overall it was great. Special thanks for the special attention and sensitivity to shellfish allergies.
Celebrating 9 years of life...
I knew the type of restaurant I was reserving, and although I did like the food and the level of service, I didn't find the waiter that helpful.
WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY OVER PRICED
I knew that I would be going for an expensive dinner as I had been there before. While everything was tasty it is WAAAYYY overpriced for what they give you and the portion sizes. I would never go back. They should be ashamed.

Food was really good, but WOW does it come out fast. I have never been served with that type of speed in a nice place. It would have been great if we were in a hurry, but we were not, and felt a bit rushed. We also ordered drinks that never came. I would go back, but will plan to be out of there with the greatest of speed.
Great ambiance at Mr. Chow!
The service is excellent as the waiter and busboys paid ample attention to us and had great, cheerful attitudes. It had been a while since we'd been there and our waiter took care of us with the appetizers and the main dishes. In particular, the honey walnut shrimp stood out to me as it was so tasty and the squab with lettuce was great as well as the chicken satay. Since the waiter selected our main course, I don't remember the names of the courses but there was a dish of soft sliced beef and more and another shrimp dish that was fabulous. I think we'll select our own dishes next time though. It is pricey though for what you get. For the prices, I would have liked to have received larger portions...

The food is incomparable - nearly everything we tasted was beyond delicious. That said the bill was shockingly expensive.

Very good food, but the service was rushed and tables are cramped. It almost felt like a high end fast food establishment, as they were definitely turning the tables very quickly.
I had high expectations for this place and was largely satisfied. Starting with the valet service I was struck by the friendliness and attentiveness of the staff which continued throughout the service. We allowed our waiter to choose our courses and were not disappointed by his recommendations. The only caveat to visiting this restaurant is that their prices appear to be substantially higher than those of similar establishments in this area

You have to enjoy sitting and talking with your neighbours in this very Asian style seating restaurant. This made it even more fun!!

read lots of reviews saying NOT to waste time or money ; basically much to do about nothing . We figured we knew better - ??? We were wrong. The food was not good and several things ( velvet chicken and green prawns were just bad . Rubbery and over cooked - the green beans were the best thing served. It wasn't horrible but we would never go back . regardless of .$$$ This was not the memory we were hoping for . It is a beautiful place , but just say no ------ ......

This restaurant used to be a favorite of ours. I was very disappointed in the food. Our waiter was pleasant enough, but completely inattentive. I am truly sorry such a great restaurant has deteriorated so greatly.

Wonderful food. Wonderful service. Wonderful atmosphere. I spent a lot of money, but I anticipated that going in. I wanted to take my sister out for a nice, fancy dinner, and this was it! Only bummed that I didn't see any celebrities and forgot my leftovers
BEST Chinees Food ever!
BEST Chinees Food ever!
Almost not worth it
Decided to come here on a whim. The seating was crazy - tables right next to each other in a line like picnic style seating. The food was great - very tasty - but small portions and very expensive. What really blew me away was that the cheapest bottle of wine was $60. I guess that's just the neighborhood now. We enjoyed it overall, but the "value" aspect detracted a little.
This was my first time to this restaurant, as I live in a different state, and this was a restaurant experience like I've never experienced before. Service, food, and location were all the best of the best! And we even saw a few stars dining, too :)
Lunch (no drinks). Good enough, but not outstanding. I was expecting a little better. Very small portions. Food was prepared well. Service was efficient, but not anything to brag about. With so many other options, I'm not sure I'd go back. I'm puzzled by the hype online.

Amazing food. Upscale. Loved every minute. The food was absolutely amazing. Worth every penny.
How many ways can you say disappointed?
I'm not sure where to begin but this dinner was not what we expected, having heard of Mr. Chow's reputation for good food. The whole ambience was just terrible. We were seated at a table that was part of a long row of tables so every word of our conversation could be heard by our neighbors 12" on either side of us and we could not help but hear their conversations. Everyone in the place seemed to be yelling, trying to talk over the music, which was all bouncing off the walls and floors. The food was good but nothing exceptional. We've definitely had just as good/better food for way less money. Don't get me wrong, we have no problem paying for a lovely dinner, but this was nothing exceptional and it cost way more than it should have. We were rushed through our meal so that they could turn the table, also adding to the unpleasant experience. No one likes to feel like a sucker and we definitely left feeling that way. LA has too many nice places to eat; my husband and I would suggest you choose another place than Mr. Chow.
really very unintersting
Been here several times in the past. On our previous visit, we let the server order and all was good, had a terrific meal. This time, we allowed the server to order and got a very uninteresting meal. Very disappointing.
