Not often you find such a special
place like Jean-Claude. Small,intimate great choices on the menu, want to return soon."
Dined on 7/17/2014
They never change the menu has
been the same since it opened. That makes it difficult to go there to often"
Dined on 7/16/2014
We eat at Jean Claude frequently,
but I am always surprised by how good the food is. The bouillabase special is excellent, as is the tilapia special!"
Dined on 7/6/2014
After going by several times we
finally made it last week and we are so glad we did. Jean Claude 2 is small with a lovely brick wall and a most pleasant atmosphere. We ordered the special soup of the day, gazpacho which turned out to be excellent, very fresh flavor. For our main courses the escargot was superb and the mussels were very good. The service was friendly without being overbearing. We ordered wine by the glass and we were pleased with our selection. Reasonably priced we will certainly go back."

We have been fans of jean Claude
since it opened.it has always been outstanding but I believe it has even gotten better in the last year and since the owner is always there.i had the skate fish and it was the best i ever had."
Dined on 6/27/2014
I have been dreaming about
bouillabaisse all day, and providentially, it was a special this night! And Jean Claude mades a wonderful version - the fish is always perfectly cooked, and the broth is flavorful....my dream came true!"

Adorable bistro with really good
food. The skate was terrific, and unusual in a balsamic sauce. Large portion, served with couscous. Reasonable prices and good selection. Wish I lived closer, but I will go back."

Incredible grilled skate with a
surprising balsamic viniagrette reduction and the roast beet salad was sublime...gazpacho was resfreshing and the staff could not be more accomodating!!! We'll be returning for the mussel next!!!"

We love this french bistro with
it's pleasant athmosphere and genuine food which is varied and appropriate for all occasions, dinner or brunch, lunch. Their skate is outstanding as is the steak aux poivre and the classic creme brulee."

Having eaten here twice, we can
say this restaurant reminds us of casual restaurants in a couple of our favorite sections of Paris. It's a good, basic restaurant. The lunch portions were less plentiful than the dinner portions, and the thinner salmon was cooked more than I had requested. Nevertheless dinner with my husband (skate and salmon), when we were walking by, and lunch with my brother (steak aux pommes frites and salmon) was tasty and enjoyable. We'll all return for a good, relaxed meal with decent wines. [We also reserved for lunch March 20 BUT did NOT receive a confirmation email from the restaurant, canceled by 'phone (medical emergency), YET regrettably labeled "no show" anyway because of a name mismatch.]"

My favorite place in the
neighborhood Glad they opens around from my house.good food good service."
Dined on 4/20/2014
The food was good but I was
disappointed that the restaurant didn't offer a special menu for Easter brunch, just their regular lunch menu, which was fairly limited. The restaurant was practically empty, which tells you something, I think. We were visiting NYC and treating our son and girlfriend and so it was a special event for us. I felt that the service was only fair. Nothing terribly wrong; it just seemed that they didn't really care very much. And considering that they didn't have many patrons at 1:00 pm on Easter Sunday, I would have expected just a bit more attention. I thought that they could have been quite good if they had only put in a little more effort. "

This is one of those old fashioned
gems. the restaurant is delightfully small. The crowd is older and the noise level reflects that. There were no children ruining the ambiance when we were there. The food is classic French bistro. There are no pretentions and the food is cooked to perfection. The prices are reasonable. The onion soup was beefy, the crouton crisp and the cheese not too stringy and best of all not too salty like most restaurants make it. The duck breast was cooked medium rare and very tender. The pork dijonaise was juicy and well balance. It actually tasted like pork. The option of getting 1/2 liters of wine is perfect when you want a little more than one glass, but everyone is drinking something different. "

Went here for the first time -- I
live in the neighborhood. Food and service were great. I will return!"

Just looking for a decent meal
before a performance on 74th between 1st and 2nd and this lovely neighborhood french restaurant was perfect. Terrific North African calamari in a coriander vinaigrette sauce, perfect hangar steak, lovely creme brulee, terrific service from the moment we walked in"

Always a pleasant dinner. We had
short ribs to die for. Granddaughter had salmon and ate every bite. A really friendly and nice French restaurant."

Dined on 4/7/2014
Nice restaurant with a great food,
personal service. Not my first time there and will be again."
Dined on 4/5/2014
Went with 2 friends for a first
visit so we could sample more dishes, and all were excellent - skate with couscous, hangar steak and the special lamb loin. Portions were more than adequate, sauces to die for! Beet/Belgian endive salad had a nice delicate goat cheese dressing. Creme brulee was a little thin, dark chocolate mousse excellent. Bit of a wait between the salad and the entree. It's a small restaurant, easy to pass by, but worth the effort to seek out!"
Dined on 4/3/2014
This restaurant is everything that
you would want in a bistrot: very good reasonably priced food; good wine selection; friendly and competent staff; and rustic atmosphere. I will return often."
