Mr Chow - Beverly Hills Ratings and Reviews

I believe that Mr. Chow is overpriced, overhyped, and undersized. The food was mediocre at best and the service was uninspired. It is as though they knew they were going to get a tip and had no interest in earning it. The meal cost $300 and I felt it was probably worth $30 at the most. If you want to "Instagram" that you are there, I suggest you take picture and then leave as quickly as possible unless you just have money to waste. My daughter was given a piece flourless chocolate cake that was dry and tasteless for her birthday. I was extremely confused as to why all of the chicken, no matter the dish, was orange. The Sea bass was dry and "oversteamed" if that is even possible. The best part of the meal was the fresh lettuce used for the lettuce cups.

This was my first time at Mr. Chow and it was a great experience. We tried the DineLA menu and got to try chicken satay, crab salad, beef in oyster sauce, chicken, and ice cream and sorbet. Everything was fresh, delicious and well prepared. The wait staff was friendly and helpful and it was a lovely restaurant.

We were so rushed to make a decision and not allowed to throughly read the menu. The waiter kept saying "let me choose for you". We also found out during our dinner that there was another menu that was never offered to us. When the waiter felt we were done our plates were removed without asking if we would like to take what was left, which was quite a bit , home
We will not go back.

We (hubby and daughter) came here during Dine LA week. While the service was excellent, the food was a bit hum-drum. The Dine LA menu came with: Appetizers (chicken satay, minced squab with lettuce, fried stuffed crab claws), Main Course (drunken fish, seven seasons prawns, beef with shepherd's purse), served with fried rice and sauteed pea shoots, Dessert (mixed sorbet). The seven seasons prawns were tasty, as was the sauteed pea shoots. But, they weren't out of the ordinary. The portions were small. And, the food was lukewarm, a no-no for Chinese food, for any cuisine, for that matter. The rest of the dishes were quite underwhelming. Then, for dessert, they put down a plate of 6 quenelles of sorbet. Then, they have us large plates and spoons to eat it. Huh? Purely, from a food taste experience, one could get better dishes at a hole in a wall in Chinatown. So, that leaves us with the dining experience including the service and the restaurant. Well, the service was great, with friendly waiters who checked on you with a smile. But, no one really noticed if we needed anything else at the table - say refilling the drinks. And, we were in the bar area, next to the bar where they were filling drinks for waiters to serve to other patrons. So, I guess that was less than a great dining experience. The price was $49 per person for Dine LA dinner menu, not including drinks, etc... Even for that seeming lower price, it really wasn't worth the hype or the food value. Pretty disappointed. I can't imagine paying full price for this mediocre meal and experience.

I was there 15v years ago with my brother, I was in the area for a leisure trip and wanted to find a restaurant near Rodeo Drive for lunch and thought of Mr. Chows and made a same day reservation and everything is just as is was 15 years ago, I will be back to visit in the future should my travels take me to the area again

Mr. Chow is now on my short list for "Most Over-Rated Restaurants in Beverly Hills." A friend and I went to sample the three- course Dine L.A. lunch menu.
Upon sitting down, I ordered a glass of wine. By the time our first course arrived, I had to ask for the wine again. Our server apologized, but had forgotten that I ordered it (strike one).
We were halfway through eating our first course when our second course arrived (strike two). We asked for the second course to be returned to the kitchen, as we would have liked to finish our appetizers. The second course was taken away and we were able to finish the appetizers. And then we waited... and waited... and waited for the second course. We waited 20 minutes, during which time our server never stopped in to check on us (strike three).
We finally got the attention of a busboy and asked him to bring our entrees. When the entrees arrived, it was obvious that they were, in fact, the same plates of food they had tried to bring us 30 minutes prior. The plates of food were ice-cold (strike four).
Upon finishing our entrees, we again had to ask a busboy to bring our desserts (strike five).
Although the server comped my wine, it was far from enough to make up for our lunch experience.

As always, Mr. Chow in BH earns the best restaurant in LA moniker. Food is superb; service immaculate and energy just right. This is how a restaurant stays popular for over 25 years. The Gamblers duck is to die for.

I hadn't been there in many years. The service was very good. While the four of us ordered a diverse number of dishes, none of them were home runs. Considering the reputation of this restaurant I was surprised that the dishes were uninspiring. Perhaps the most inconvenient thing was that tables along the banquets were abutted right next to each other. It more diners into the place but it made for uncomfortable seating, difficulty getting in and out if one was sitting at the banquet, and it was difficult not to hear and almost be involved with people dining to the left and right of you again. it wasn't worth the 1 1/4 hour drive and I doubt that I will do it again.
