The service is excellent. I had the wagyu steak which was also brilliant. Although it is an Asian fusion restaurant, don't expect to find some real Asian food there. The dumpling looks Chinese, but not what's in it, and the skin is too thick. The...More

Except for the soup dumpling which burned my mouth but was delicious. The salmon was terrific. The spiced donuts were great

It is hard to wait the requisite three minutes to enjoy the soup dumplings. I'm glad your taste buds weren't too singed to enjoy the rest of your meal. Thanks for coming in. Michael Blyth Maître d' ChoLon Restaurant Concepts

I had no idea what to except when family took us to ChoLon. I was told it was Asian fusion, but not much else. I've been to several Asian fusion restaurants lately in Europe, Asia, and the US, and I expected more of the same....More

We went to ChoLon with a guide who is hoping to add them to a food tour. I hope they say yes! We probably wouldn't have noticed this wonderful spot on our own, but we're glad we went. Would love to go back for more.

We ate there in the evening and I would say that most people were dressed business casual. That was in early May. I would think that during the summer you would see people with shorts and a collared shirt?
