My wife and I went to Mandarin Cove after a visit to Lan Su Chinese Garden. It was a Sunday afternoon, so relatively quiet. We liked the decor, with models of Chinese junks nearby. The food was tasty; I had their Ma Po Bean Curd, ordered extra spicy. While it could have been even spicier, it was pretty zesty. My... More

The restaurant is a few steps from the side entrance of the Marriott, and having driven all day, we were not looking to get back in the car or walk a distance to eat. The restaurant offers a...

This was one of the only options to eat at while I was at conferences. It was really good! I highly recommend this restaurant. It is casual but the food is quality.

I haven't gone to a Chinese restaurant in years, just never like the food, but this place was open when so many nearby the hotel were closed. Enjoyed the menu food and service.

The food is good although I believe they were watering down the sauces. I've never had the left overs leak out of the carry out box before. The food was good, but they don't have enough staff to give good service, we had to wave down a waitress twice and it was a different girl each time. No one checked... More

We were put off with the fact that no other diners were in the restaurant the whole time we were there. Service was great. Food was good.

Walked into the bar to wait for my husband! Waited and waited some more. When the bartender finally came over I asked if they had any specials. She responded no she does Shots of vodka. No suggestions or menu was offered! I said never mind. Then I left for the restaurant.

I went with a group of about 10 people from the convention at the Marriott across the street. I was very impressed. Despite the size of the group, the service was excellent, the food came quickly, and was tasty. She thoughtfully seated our group at an empty corner of the room, so we could talk without being self-conscious about disturbing... More

We were extremely offended by the server When we received our check,she had written in a gratuity and had already processed the credit card prior to getting our payment authorization.. When we confronted her suddenly her ability to speak English became very poor. We have been customers for over 20 years. We will never return to the Mandarin Cove. We... More
