Description
Ciao Chow is a casual open-kitchen Italian cafeteria that promotes lively interaction between our patrons and our chefs. A theater of sorts, where your meal is freshly prepared and your drink expertly poured in front of you at our pizza kitchen, chef’s kitchen and cocktail bar.

From our communal tables, to our pick-and-choose antipasti platters, pastas and pizzas, everything at Ciao Chow fosters a convivial atmosphere where food is shared among family and friends.

With a decidedly Italian touch, Ciao Chow’s interior features monolithic marble counter tops and terrazzo floors blended with an industrial feel of exposed concrete, copper piping and light fixtures. Within our large seating area, our chef’s table can fit up to 10 people to accommodate special requests and occasions.

Our customers can be assured that all of the ingredients we use are of the highest quality and our cooking methods authentic. We do not cut costs for cheaper ingredients - period. Who would have thought that basic food ingredients could be so highly complicated? WE DO.

    The rigatoni with pomodoro was delicious, but the carbonara pizza was extremely greasy and most of the bacon strips that came with it were full fat with no meat.

    Scam. Details not as advertised.

    I booked for $300 + $150 free flow. When we got there they said they haven't had that offer "for a long long time". I got the email only about 2 weeks before this reservation (and ~7 days before the booking).

    So they first tried to tell me I could only select from 5 beers (the offer on Dining City said 25 beers). And that the price was now +$200 (not 150).

    OOOOok. So they went to ask the manager.

    "ok sir, we can offer you the 25 beers, but the price is still $200".

    I said, ok that's fine. But still - what a rip off since I had booked through a link that clearly said $150.

    Also the food selection is VERY LIMITED. It's some pasta and a few things of veggies and cheese and some pizza (the pizza was great, though).

    Nowhere near hotel brunch quality or selection.

    It also took almost 10 minutes to get our first drink order and the server harassed us more than 3 times to start eating. ... Uh, ok dude, I just wanna have a beer first. Get off me.

    We also had to ask every time we wanted a plate cleared or a refill of water.

    We ended up paying almost $1100 for 2 people (a great brunch at Mandarin Oriental would be around $1300 for reference).

    Don't waste your time. Skip this place and let it go out of business.
