Shanghai Pavillion on the UES?

Has anyone tried it? I just noticed it the other day. Opinion on atmosphere and food? I'm looking for a slightly-upscale atmosphere, maybe with a wine list, and that could seat 7 people, maybe around a round table.

Thank you!

  1. OK Shanghai/American Chinese food, nice room (could be described as upscale), wine list, prices higher than most comparable places, could definitely fit 7 around a round table.
    If UES location not a deciding factor would recommend Tang Pavilion on 55th between 5th and 6th (closer to 6th) as it satisfies all requirements listed and then some - I have had consistently good luck with the food (despite contrary opinions on this board).

        Went to Shanghai Pavillion on Friday night - it was incredible! Really loved it. Made my reservation for the group of 7.
