Hi!!! I visit Roosevelt with my colleague and had dinner! The atmoshere reminds you an authentic American steak restaurant. The steak we had was extremely good quality and of course delicious, we really enjoyed! There is also a cigar room, where smoking is allowed and this is very inportant also for smokers. The service was very friendly and professional as... More

Honestly, I wanted to go here because I can go to Ruth Chris in any city in any country...What no one said was that this restaurant was connected to a ratty hotel. Of course being the only Caucasian S could have been a good thing as all locals were dining there- However the steak was sent back as it was... More

I have traveled to Shanghai for many years and had the good fortune to enjoy many of the best restaurants in this wonderful city. If a steakhouse experience is what you're after, this is THE place! Great ambiance, nice humidor and smoking room too!

George Chen ran the best steak house in Shanghai years before the global chains like Morton's and Ruths' Chris braved the city. Despite all the new competition, his steak house is one of the best. The location in an old mansion in the French Concession is beautiful and centrally located. Have a cocktail before dinner: they do a great traditional... More

Imported Beef is not cheap in China, so you should expect to pay a price for it. Given the product`s price tag, and that steak is the specialty of the restaurant, you would hope that kitchen team could cook this. My expensive Ribeye lacked marbling, and was more cooked on one side than the other. A rooky cook`s mistake! The... More

Good business location as it is quiet. Tries to emulate an American Steak House, but misses the mark. Of course, good steak in Shanghai is expensive, no exception here. With that said, the Filet Mignon was perfectly cooked and a quality cut. The sides left a bit to be desired. Garlic Fries were "over garliced" and the creamed spinach lacked... More

This is easily one of the best steak places in Shanghai. The quality of the meat and its preparation are first class. The sides are also very good especially the black truffle mac'n'cheese. The wines list is extensive but heavily centered on French or US wines. The only Australian wines were expensive (a la Penfolds Grange). Some more reasonably priced... More

Very surprise to see wait staff with fluent American English. Excellent Australian steak, well prepared and well cooked. I personally like this location better for its beautiful surroundings.

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighbourhood Profile
Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While it is mostly within the Xuhui district, residents will sometimes include parts of Jing'an and Luwan in their mental maps of the Former French Concession. The area seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet, tree-lined avenues, French-style villas, interesting boutiques, lively bars and quaint cafes that are not typical of China. All of these mix and mingle with local life as Chinese markets and lanehouse communities are peppered throughout. Denizens of the Former French Concession can spectate a mahjong game on the street or get their bike checked at a tiny bike repair store on the way to their refurbished apartment tucked away among Chinese family homes.
