One of the best restaurants not only in French Concession district but in hole town! The food is awesome and steaks especially! they have a wide range of decent wine! the pricing is high a bit,especially to compare with other restaurant,but it worth it.And you wont find such a food anywhere in Shanghai!

Best meal we have had on this trip or any trip to Shanghai. The service was perfect and prompt. The wine selection was good and the atmosphere was really nice. Best of all was the food and being able to watch it being prepared. In a very nice section of town...don't miss,

We wanted a special meal to celebrate with family. The restaurant is dark, trendy and comfortable. The food ranges from good quality burgers to salmon and lamb shanks all with a twist. We all liked the food we ordered, the portions were small and I left feeling I could have eaten more. Overall we had a great meal, but the... More

This is one of the more expencive restaurants in the area and although the food is resonably good it is not one of my favourites. But I do like some of the more quirky options on the menu, just to keep thing different. The cocktails are good and the service is also good. Being just in the back street dose... More

I have eaten here once and the food was very good, although expensive for the quality. I have heard from friends that it can be a little inconsistent. I would try it if you are here for a long time, it may be really good but it may not be. So if you are only for a few days or... More

Given the reviews we'd read here and elsewhere, we expected a top shelf dining experience. The restaurant setting, welcome of the staff and ambience after being seated did nothing to diminish our high expectations. Then came the food - In short, it was one of those meals where the entrees (starters for our American friends) delivered and the mains just... More

Had dinner here just yesterday - we ordered the squids for appetizer and steak for mains. Food was great although I find some dishes a little salty.

Dashed into this restaurant right before a lightening storm and felt like the luckiest couple in Shanghai. Great meal, friendly service. They went above and beyond by getting us a taxi after lunch (not easy in a storm) and walking us out to the street to make sure we were safely picked up.) Thanks T8!

Staying in Xintiandi

Neighbourhood Profile
Xintiandi
The refurbishment of a block of old shikumen into a carless entertainment center called Xintiandi, filled with restaurants, shops and bars, turned this area below South Huangpi Road into one of Shanghai’s most fashionable areas. Luxe condos house people who can afford the high-end brands that fill the malls and shops along Madang Road. The pleasant Taipinghu Park provides the area with green space and is also home to Shanghai Fashion Week twice a year. It’s not all glitter and glamour, though, as the rise of Danshui Road has given the Xintiandi area a shot of toned-down character. Small bars and cafes, mostly owned by locals, have people hanging out in a formerly quiet, unassuming part of the neighborhood.
