We finally made it to this new restaurant with a family birthday group of nine. The service was impeccable in a brisk, fresh atmosphere. Several in our group noticed the Beijing duck being served at other tables and were interested in trying it. Our waiter told us that due to the 45 minute prep time we should have it for our third course. The family style servings were generous and we were all quite content after our second course. It was entertaining to have the duck carved at the table and we all anticipated a delicious and unique completion of our meal. Imagine our surprise when a second carved duck (because of our group size) was brought out from the kitchen! Granted, it was our fault for not paying attention to the menu or doing a bit of research ahead of time, but it was quite shocking to get a bill that included $612 worth of Beijing duck ($68/person before tax/tip)...over doubling our check. Although it was a great meal at a beautiful restaurant we left with the feeling of being taken advantage of. We think it would have been very reasonable of the waiter (who was the most aware of how much food was going to be served at the table) to have at least given an option for partial servings. We aren't a group of football players, just three generations of foodies. That said, my husband and I (hosts of the big group) will try Mr. Chow again for a date night...we just won't be having any Beijing duck.
