Peninsula Chicago Shanghai Terrace Exterior


Shanghai Terrace offers Chinese cuisine highlighting contemporary interpretations of Shanghainese, Cantonese, and Sichuanese classics. With Chef de Cuisine Elmo Han at the helm, the menu encompasses a blend of traditional dishes and creative interpretations of classics, making it known as some of the best Chinese cuisine found in Chicago.


A Private Dining Room is available to reserve for up to 30 guests while The Main Dining Room offers a seductive 1930’s Shanghai eatery-inspired atmosphere decorated in tones of ebony, gold and scarlet. In warmer weather, additional seating is provided on The Terrace, an urban garden with spectacular skyline views that allows diners to experience the magic of summertime in Chicago. In cooler months when The Terrace is not available, additional seating is provided in The Lobby – a soaring, majestic room with floor to ceiling windows, towering ceilings, and elegant chandeliers. Please be sure to indicate your preference when reserving your table. 


Shanghai Terrace's lush outdoor terrace reopened for the season on May 31, 2024. Along with the return of outdoor dining, lunch service resumes on Fridays through Sundays.
