CourtYard Restaurant (The)
Previously rated as one of the top 50 restaurants in the world by Conde Naste magazine, The CourtYard has a heralded reputation in Beijing as a first-class dining establishment. It is certainly designed to impress, making it ideal for a romantic rendezvous or important business dinner. Coolly elegant, spacious and airy, the CourtYard has modern airs featuring candles, glass, white walls and contemporary Chinese artwork. The kitchen specializes in nouveau fusion cooking, combining pan-Asian and Western touches. The result is an innovative and varied menu. The wine list is impressive and there is also an exceptional selection of after-dinner drinks and desserts.
What a wonderful, romantic experience. The CourtYard aims to impress with it's ambience, location, food and service. We enjoyed our meals but I felt they were short on the wine, by the glass. This was the first time, though 4 yrs ago, that a glass of wine was filled only half way. That was my only disappointment. I would have expected at least 3/4 full...especially with what it cost. Otherwise, a delight!
This must be one of the greatest experiences we had in China.In a City as big as Beijing one would expect more places like this,but unfortunately that is not the case.Being a great fan of Mr.Chow restaurants in Europe and the US the Courtyard restaurant really satisfied us.We would love to go back.
The food varies between average and good and the wine list is pricey. The service was ok but the staff still hovers over you during the meal. And don't forget the 15% service fee in a country where tipping is not required.
The ambiance is wonderful, the location is wonderful and even the service is wonderful, but the food is not. It should be called confusion cuisine rather than fusion. Everything is covered with or surrounded by sauces that add no value to the dish at best and totally destroy the dish at worst. Go for the location, view, but not the food.
This is really a place to impress your date. The ambience is romantic and it's highly recommended to call in advance in order to get the much coveted seat by the window.
It's the only restaurant with a view of the eastern wall of the Forbidden City.
The bread taste fantastic, soup portion is little and the food is average. Average price of the main course is RMB200. After dinner, you can go down to the art gallery at the basement.
We were there in July 2004. The food was excellent. Good wine list. Location---unforgetable. We had table next to the window...with a view of the Forbidden City. Extensive wine list..what more can I say?
