The worst food ever!!! – We went in on a Friday night at about 7:30 pm and there were no other diners. This should have been our first clue. We ordered several different items from the menu. The service was prompt and courteous. However, all of the dishes were not fresh. It seemed like leftover food that was microwaved. We asked our server about the extremely low quality of the food and she smiled and shrugged her shoulders. About a half hour after leaving the restaurant, I started feeling an upset stomach. I felt sick all night . I would never go there again.
You can pass this one up. – Called around 3 to see about getting a reservation that night at 7:30, the hostess acted like she was going to fit me in at 7:15, got there and the place was empty. Hummm why did I need to come earlier then? Anyway ordered some beers, wanted the lobster rolls, which they did not have, so got the shrimp rolls...nothing special, got the filet with broccoli, again nothing special....also got the drunken sea bass....was ok but not for $30 for a half order. this place is severely overpriced and not that good....and who decorated the place, tacky
Haven't been yet BUT... – Planning on coming soon just based on these amazing interior shots! On our list of places to try in 2010....
Citysearch Editorial Review – Watch out, Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills: Another glossy temple to haute Chinese cuisine is making a play for L.A.'s spendy and trendy set. Taking up residence in the former Dolce space on a low-key stretch of Melrose, the latest outpost of the Philippe empire doesn't look like much from the outside--a white box with a sliver of a window looking onto the street--but inside it becomes abundantly clear that this is the spot for a little dim sum and then some. Favorites include the crispy beef, chicken lettuce wraps, delicately fragrant seabass (offered two ways--the garlic version is a singular experience), nine seasons spicy prawns and pan-fried veggie dumplings (which actually aren't on the menu, but if you ask Costin he'll no doubt hook you up; after all, what's good enough for Sir Paul McCartney should certainly work for the rest of us). Though spread across 5,000 square feet--including a private wine room, a secondary dining area and a sceney bar where $15 cocktails are de rigueur--the space has a decidedly intimate feeling and maintains the signature Philippe look with sleek and taut red leather booths, white linen tablecloths and black lacquered accents.
