This isn't your strip-mall Chinese eatery. Good ambiance, inventive dishes (walnut honey shrimp, for instance) and a pleasant wait staff made it worth it.

I've eaten at Bo Ling's several times. The food is always good. I've never had any complaints. The menu is varied and everyone can find something they would like.

I like ordering on line and taking out sushi for lunch on the run. We've also enjoyed the sushi happy hour in the restaurant.

This truly was the worst dining experience I have ever had. The service was sooo bad, the sauce tasted like ketchup and although management was aware of all the "misses" they did not even try to make any of it right. I understand that mistakes are made, not every table receives top notch service, but a little concern from management... More

We chose this restaurant for their Gluten Free options. Food was good but not great. Service was very good. It was extremely expensive for lunch with just 2 basic plates. Had to pay quite a bit for tea which is usually included. Good GF option but no somewhere I would go only for the food

From the roast duck to the shrimp toast to the seaweed in sesame oil, everything we tried, we loved. And we even ordered Beef Chow Tee off of the menu and were not disappointed. This place has some of the best Chinese food in the Midwest. And best of all, the bill at the end of the meal was tiny... More

There were six of us, ranging from 12 to 79 and all had a great time with the delicious and variety-filled menu.

We had been told that Bo Ling's was the place for dim sum and that on the weekends the place was packed with all the dim sum. Unfortunately, we were there on a Monday, so we only able to sample some of the treats. The food was very tasty, and the service was excellent. We tried several dim sum selections... More

We had lunch at Bo Ling's in the River Market. It was a lovely space and accommodating waitstaff. They graciously agreed to make my dining companion gluten-free cashew chicken (off the menu), which she thoroughly enjoyed. My orange peel chicken was delicious as well. The bathrooms are in a shared space-and not enough of them. A small inconvenience that would... More

The one and only bright spot on my visit was the hostess. She was smiling and even noticed my server had not visited me yet and came and took my drink order. I though this was going to be a great experience but it quickly went to being horrible. I ordered the szechuan steamed pork dumplings as an appetizer. The... More
