M on the Bund
With superb Continental cuisine, an excellent wine selection and deft service, the fashionable M on the Bund sets the standard for other haute cuisine restaurants in Shanghai. As the place to see and be seen, the much-touted eatery attracts its fair share of Shanghai's movers and shakers. Contemporary, airy and stylish decor complements sweeping views of the Bund. The food reaches equally high heights. Diners are recommended to try the Salt Crusted Leg of Lamb and the Crispy Suckling Pig. They should also leave room for dessert—the sinfully delicious pavlova is rightfully legendary.
My visit this year was a disaster. Very crowed, the tables are to close to eachother therefor is no room for the waiters to move.
I give back my steak two times because it was absolutly wrong.
Perhaps this is just a incident but we have had the expierence. You better can go to Three on the Bund, named Laris. This place is much better then M.
Although this was an expensive meal, it was WONDERFUL! My servers kept my drinks filled to the rim, and the food was A+++ quality.
I was so tired of eating Chinese Food every day so the "M on the Bund" was a nice alternative.
It was YUMMY!!!!
Anyone who says that the ambiance at M on the Bund is anything but magical or the service anything but outstanding has got ulterior motives. The menu is limited, yes, and this is not haute cuisine, but you are always guaranteed a good meal. And oh yes, the wine list may be the best in China. Nevermind the naysayers - M provides an unforgettable experience.
Wonderful place to sit outside on the terrace and look over the Bund and the Pudong skyline. Food has been superb every time I have been but this is not a cheap spot. Staff usually very good by Shanghai standards.
I wont rush back...well, maybe for a coffee and the view.

Let's face it - the view form the deck over Pudong and the Bund is superb. The ambience is truly intercontinental and the patrons chick and trendy. I waited in anticipation for the food to match the promising surroundings.
I ordered the "suckling pig" and was not impressed. It was overcooked and the crackling had a strong metallic taste. I was also quite surprised to find a large chunk of meat on my plate with only two or three small potato chips. I would have welcomed some vegetables with my very pricey dish. The meat was dry and very bland. I had better suckling pig in pubs. This is not my idea of fine dining.
I also thought the menu and dishes thereon, was a bit heavy and bloated. The main dishes all appeared to be heavy handed French bistro type cooking. There is nothing unique on the menu to match the youthfulness and modernity of the surroundings and the patrons.
The wine list is what one would expect from a top restaurant such as "M" but also heavily priced. We settled on a bottle of Clos Malvern Merlot. Good wine, not good value.
For desert I had the Pavlova - very good, although again too big and heaving with cream. Some of the people at our table ordered the chocolate desert also well received.
I think that M is maybe riding on the crest of the beauty of the Shanghai skyline too much and I am sure that a top notch establishment such as M, can get their food and menue up to a standard to match the great view and ambience.
This restaurant provides a haven for a few hours with fantasic views.
If you look at the strict financial return it is probably not the best value for money in Shanghai but in terms of the whole experience there are few places in the world that I have had a better time.
