Food: This is a high-end French dining experience. It is not a bistro. They offer alacarte, but you can choose a menu of 4-6 dishes and choose from the alacarte menu at set prices (4 dishes was around 800 yuan + beverages). We ordered the...foie gras with truffles (recommended) for entre and the merino lamb (highly recommended) for main. Their souffle is great too. A high point was their bread service -- 3 unique house-baked breads spread out throughout your meal. Service: faultless service. My girlfriend had a sore throat and asked for a hot water with a few slices of ginger in it -- the service staff obliged and continue to fill her cup throughout the night. This is an example of their overall keen attentiveness and pleasant demeanour.More

Amazing restaurant with great food and very attentive service. The entire hotel is very very posh. Sir Elly's is no exception. The restaurant was surprisingly empty on a Friday night, probably the corrupt officials are not entertain so much these days. The views are fantastic,...same as the atmosphere and the food. We had an amazing Wagyu Tomahawk that was cooked to perfection. The shrimp carpaccio was also very good. Only the wine was not living up to his fame and we were till the end not sure if it was genuine or a creative Chinese remix.More

My friend and I were traveling to Shanghai for a leisure trip in December. We went to the Sir Elly's terrace on the last day of our stay for drink. It was amazing, we actually regretted why didn't we find out it earlier. The location...couldn't be more perfect. The rooftop bar offers many amazing night views with the Century skyscrapers on the Pudong side. The fantastic view along south river also flanked by the classic elegance of the 1920′s Bund precinct buildings. I thought I was falling love with the mix of fascinating historic building and modern architecture. The service was also impeccable, the staff couldn't have been friendlier. By the time my friend and I arrived at the 14th floor, Cherry served us stunningly. We heard the rooftop bar is currently under construction and it will be finished before April, hope the renovation is going well. We are looking forward to returning to Sir Elly's terrace.More

Elly's Restaurant made my birthday lunch special. The food was sumptuous but the King Crab Cannelloni was outstanding. There was a variety of accompanying bread rolls but the bacon ones are worth looking out for. Despite me not wanting a birthday cake the chef made...my dessert extra special by presenting it wit a Happy Birthday plaque made of chocolate. Staff were attentive but not intrusiveMore

We went for a meal at Sir Elly's to celebrate my wife's birthday with my family in August 2015. Sadly we had an inside table, but still were able to enjoy the spectacular views of the Pudong riverside. Right from entry the service was excellent....Well trained, friendly staff took care of us. The sommelier put me on to some excellent Chinese wine. The food was exquisite. Three of us had the tasting menu, and each course was a delight. The black cod was particularly memorable. My only complaint, and I'm really digging deep here, is that the staff need a brush up on silver service. Occasionally they would serve or clear from the wrong side, but I'm being super pedantic in that complaint. The service itself was friendly overall, and unobtrusive when required. We finished the night by going up to the roof top terrace for a final drink. Given they served brilliant non alcoholic cocktails, and kept the popcorn coming in limitless supply, my kids were very happy. I actually tipped the DJ as she ran a clever set of modern takes on classics that was a perfect mood setting as we watched out of the busy river and Pudong skyline. Though your wallet will notice the visit, the food, ambiance and service more than compensates.More

Great views, interesting crowd and a gin cocktail list that goes long. Just stop by for the 7pm 'lighting' of the financial center every evening....Great spot.

The views, the service and the feeling was so great that we had drinks twice in the outdoor terrace when we were in Shanghai. Perfect for a pre-dinner cocktail or drinks to see Shanghai light up.

This was our first visit to Sir Elly's. Walking through Sir Elly's lounge on the 13th floor into the restaurant, there is a fantastic panoramic view of the Bund in three directions. The seating staff are very cordial and professional. The environment in the restaurant...is quiet for conversation with soft music, and enough distance between tables for privacy. The cuisine is a French-Asian fusion served Western style. The food is truly outstanding which is accompanied by its price. We opted for a six course tasting menu to try a variety of the chefs creations. From a fois gras appetizer, an oyster appetizer, through consomme, fish and meat entrees and a dessert creation, all of the food was a gourmet delight. Very well done by the chef. The wait staff was attentive, knowledgeable, and helpful. This is fine dining with small portions individually prepared and served correctly, which allows for conversation between courses. The wine list was excellent both by the glass and the bottle. For a pleasant evening, after dinner in the restaurant, enjoy a drink and the marvelous view in the lounge.More

We went to Sir Ellis for just some drinks at the terrace. The Terrace has stunning views (a-ma-zing!!) to the Pudong area, and luckily we got THE best table at the terrace, with a magnificent view. But then, since it was getting late for dinner,...we decided to try their restaurant one flooor below. We hadn't read any reviews, so we tried our luck. To say that we were not disappointed is an absolute understatement. It was absolutely amazing. We had the foie gras for appetizer, and for main course I had the veal with truffle and foie gras sauce. Absolutely unforgettable. Service was also great, even if it was a bit late in the evening.More

Sir Elly's Terrace is an upscale, contemporary rooftop bar and lounge. The views of the Pudong skyline are stunning and are arguably the best in Shanghai. The drinks are pricey but fantastic. Service was great. A fantastic venue for late night drinks.
