If you have a harbor view room at JWM, you should have a view of the fireworks.

“Authentic” food in HK is just about all types of Chinese food. However, most Chinese restaurants are usually not romantic. You could consider Lung King Heen at Four Seasons which has a dress code, a view of the harbor, and Michelin-starred food if that means anything. Price will be very expensive, and you will likely be asked for a depoeit or credit card guarantee. Two other Chinese restaurants with nice settings are Dynasty at Renaissance Harbourview and Above and Beyond at Hotel Icon.

>>>authentic hong kong dinner.<<<

If you are referring to Cantonese cuisine, another place that we like is Ming Court at the Langham Place hotel in Mongkok. Its a nice restaurant and has some fine mains (see link).

If you want dining with view of the fireworks, they WILL demand deposit to take your reservation. And you'll have to book well in advance (months rather than weeks let alone days), especially if you want a room at the window, as even with the highly inflated prices (expect to pay at least 50% more for a set meal than normal days a-la-carte) these tables are in high demand. Which is of course why these restaurants can get away with it.

Romantic: try the Peninsula Hotel. No harbour view but it has a great setting.

Hi t-leaf-w, You could try Bauhinia Cruise (http://www.cruise.com.hk). They have a special buffet menu for New Year's Eve which I am thinking of going for as well. Email reserve@cruise.com.hk for details. Good luck!

Just a note about Bauhinia: they're inexpensive, and the quality of the food reflects that. I can't call it bad, it's decent, but don't do that cruise if you're after a fantastic dinner. Last CNY I saw mostly locals and a good bunch of mainland tourists (individual travellers) in the line waiting to board. On regular days they cater largely to mainland tour groups.

It is one of the better boats for watching the fireworks show. Their vessels are converted vehicle ferries, and have pretty open views.
