One of the best chinese places I've been too in a while. Would definitely recommend the peaking duck. Service is kind and quick and a nice outdoor courtyard with a view of the city.

Beautiful restaurant with excellent food. Not cheap, but would you really expect that at the Peninsula Hotel? I'll be back!

I'm not quite sure why this place is called Shanghai Terrace since most of the food isn't Shanghai style but rather Cantonese... But it is very yummy, just not for the price (which brought down the rating from 4 stars to 3). If you are there for dim sum and are Asian or have been to Chinatown before, the items are severely overpriced for what they are (but do try the interesting foie gras and duck dumplings!). As a result, you would be disappointed so only go if you want exquisitely presented Chinese food at over the top prices. Ambience: Definitely romantic with the oriental decorations and dimmed lighting. Also, you should dress business casual unless you want to stand out in a tshirt or shorts. Service: most of the waiters are from China or Hong Kong and are kind, but our particular waitress seemed to have some issues understanding what we were asking for. They also didn't come to our table very often, and we literally had to wave to grab their attention (and this was a Thursday night). Food: the cocktails are superb (I highly recommend Ning Sling). The dim sum is alright, with Shanghai style soup dumplings that have a ton of flavor it a lack of soup. For entrees, I would highly recommend the crispy duck even though it's pricey (compared to the same duck you'd get in Chinatown). For dessert, we had mooncakes since it was the Mid Autumn festival - these were some of the best ones I've ever had! The fluffy and light pastries were stuffed with a rich, egg custard. Mmm mmm mmm!

Beautiful interior, but we were just there for drinks on the terrace, the crowd was still pretty fancy. Only a few specialty drinks offered which was a bit of a disappointment but we did love the complementary cheese crisp, spicy nuts and wasabi peas that were even refilled. Service was great. Patio seats at least 100 I would say with some great views of Michigan Ave and the John Hancock. Definitely a great spot to grab a drink and some city views where other that the occasional siren you feel miles above the hustle and bustle of Michigan Avenue below!

The Peninsula Hotel in general and the Shanghai Terrace in specific offer excellence at a high price. Everything about the place is excellent/outstanding. The food is some of the best Asian in the US. Service is spot on; fast knowledgeable and polite. Decor makes you feel like you are in Shanghai. In good weather, I particularly enjoy the outdoor dining. Highly recommended for those who want the best and are willing to pay the premium price.
