delicious food, poor service, great place, good more drinks, great overall restaurant experience, not recommend restaurant, big good variety
what a rip - this passes for good?. I'm sorry - I have to line up with those that thought this place wasn't worth the hype. We had a party of 11 last night, and first they couldn't figure out how to set up the table. The waitress was pleasant enough, until she spilled a drink on me, and I had to clean it up. The food was merely average - the lobster sui mai came in some weird brothy sauce - not necessary - I would have sent it back, but who knows what would have come out. Oh, and they don't serve dim sum anymore - someone alert the gossip pages.
Loved it!. My best friend and I had dinner at Chi on Saturday. It was so great! Service was great and the food was delicious. We met the owners Art and Allan, and they are also great. Art sat with us for our dinner and bought us a couple drinks....Tons of fun at Chi, would definately go again!
A wonderful experience.
I have eaten at Chi on three occasions over the past eight months and have had a great experience each time. The service was prompt, attentive, and polite. The food was delicious. On my first visit I had grilled diver scallops, which were superb. On subsequent visits the halibut and lobster became favorites. My daughter chose Chi for her 18th birthday dinner and loved the shrimp toast and lobster potstickers. I have had the warm chocolate soufflé cake three times and hope it remains on the menu so that I can enjoy it again in the future. The prices aren't cheap, but certainly compare to any in Chicago or DC and are far less than most in NYC.
I hope to host a business party at the restaurant this spring and know that my guests will fall in love with Chi, too.
The Good and Bad. Chi has a great location, ambiance, and drinks. That's about it. The food and services was mediocre "for a talk of the town" restaurant. For drinks and people watching, this is the place to go; if you want a great overall restaurant experience, go somewhere else.
THIS PLACE IS HORRIBLE. I tried this place the first time and the food was horrible. Not packed at all just a dull, boring place. Was willing to go back because Brent Bolthouse was having afterhours there. CHI'S CALLED ME AN HOUR BEFORE MY RESERVATION and cancelled. I asked why and they said, "We needed to give your table to someone else"! I had my reservation two weeks before. They are rude, horrible people. Don't waste your time! BORING, OVERPRICED! Rude staff a bunch of WANNA BE ACTORS! GET A LIFE!
FOUND MR. GOODBAR. Normally don't write reviews, but I brought a date to Chi last night and had a great time. We sat at the table for a while enjoying the atmosphere and didn't feel rushed like some other restaurants. The food was better than most Asian places, the drinks were good, the waiter knew when to check on us and when to leave us alone. Overall, it was a great night out. Chi and me made a good impression.
went to CHI last wednesday with some girlfriends -
ate, drank and just as we asked our waitress if Justin Timberlake ever comes in, he and Cameron Diaz walk in with about 10 people - that was a nice topping to a fun night - the food was delicious - and there was a good mix of people - absolutely going back to Chi -
BANG FOR THE BUCK. I went there last night and thought the food was amazing. Portions were big, good variety to choose from and great taste. The bar was busy, the crowd was good looking and the drinks were good. It was just a fun night at a great resaurant.
Yes and No. I guess I went here with high expectations because I was disappointed. Don't get me wrong the decor was beautiful and service was great but that was about it. The food had no flavor, it was just bland. I felt like it was equivalent to a microwavable dinner. If you want to go and hang out for drinks, it is the perfect place. But for food....look elsewhere.
Positive. The menu is amazing, if you love oriental food chi is the place to go. Good service, $$$ reasonable and the location....Heaven...Thanks Chi
