Birthday Dinner with a View in Hong Kong

Thanks PhilD but I actually just received the menu via email from the restaurant. Only pricey items are the typical luxury dishes like abalone, bird's nest, shark fin, etc. Even their prix fixe dinner isn't too bad, $888 for mostly all luxury items. Looking forward to your reviews after Saturday!

I've booked a window table at Nanhai no 1 - looking forward to this meal! However, if I am able to get a seat at the new restaurant at the Ritz, I may have to cancel this reservation...

I wonder how difficult it would be to get reservations for one of those restaurants for early April... Tin Lung Heen in particular...

Great - thanks Charles! I will check those out. and yes, after I did a little more research, turns out those other restaurants don't have views as well as Hoi King Heen. How does Yan Toh Heen compare to Man Wah?

Yes - it does seem like most of the restaurants with nice views are the ones in hotels. I don't mind paying the higher price, I just want a beautiful view with delicious food... and surprisingly, I'm having a really hard time picking just one!

Birthday Dinner with a View in Hong Kong

My boyfriend and I are from San Francisco and are travelling to Hong Kong and Thailand for two weeks during his birthday. I am very familiar with Hong Kong but I've been struggling to find the perfect restaurant to take him for his birthday. He loves seafood and beautiful views - I thought that would be incredibly easy to find but after meticulously studying the chowhound boards, I'm still unsure of where to go. What I would prefer is a romantic dinner, Cantonese/Chinese food (we're in San Francisco so great French, Italian, Western is all very accessible here and in Napa), with amazing views of the HK night skyline. I've gathered a few places on top of all the hole-in-the-walls I'll be dragging him to. This is what I've seen as some popular places but not sure if there are other options or if it fits with what we are looking for:

Man Wah at the Mandarin Oriental
Ye Shanghai in TST
T'ang Court
Ming Court
Hu Tong

Open to new suggestions. I am also not sure how much each of these will cost so if someone can give me a general price range, that would be great as well. I will be okay spending about $100-200USD a person although this will depend on quality of the food, of course.
