Allways fantasticIt is my third time at jean Georges And i will return as many times as God permits. The food was fantastic And very ligth, service was great And the dining room is elegant yet casual. It is worth eating here at least once in a liftime.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMJean GeorgesBetter than I remembered. The service was wonderful, impeccable without being pretentious. Ingredients fresh and creatively presented. Wine pairings excellent. Definitely a better experience than Per Se across the circle.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSublimeJean George's was, as usual, excellent. The spring tasting menu was perfect, but the thing that made it even better was the wine pairing. The dry Alsace Riesling with the scallop carpaccio was spectacular! This restaurant never fails to impress. The service is wonderful and the sommeliers knowledgeable and friendly.
One of the best NYC has to offer5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMI thought the service wasI thought the service was a bit slow, our lunch took 2.5 hours, but it was a great way to celebrate mothers day. We were also seated right by the kitchen which was a bit annoying.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is fantastic!!! TheThe food is fantastic!!! The ambience is friendly. The dishes are carefully presented. Everything is perfect!!!! We really enjoy!!!!!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOustanding Fine Dinning ExperienceExpensive but worth it. Food quality and preparation were really great. Presentation was amazing. Comfortable seating; quiet; and very professional atmosphere. We had 8 PM theater tickets; sat down at 5:30 PM and when we started to "run late" (our own fault - enjoying the experience too much), our waiter suggested we go to the theater, enjoy the show, and then return for our desert!! We took his suggestion and it worked out great!! We were seated almost immediately upon our return and enjoyed the desert tremendously. This is an outstanding choice for a special occasion. Fine dining in NYC is always very expensive - Jean George's is different in that it is worth it!!!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMI tried the 2 course lunchI tried the 2 course lunch menu, food was definately not 3 michelin star worthy but service was great.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful dining experienceWe brought friends visiting from San Francisco to Jean Georges. All four of us thought it was the perfect place for our celebratory reunion. Unlike other NYC restaurants, we could hear each other perfectly. We enjoyed the comfortable seating, solicitous waiters and waitresses, lovely presentations of interesting food combinations, never felt rushed. The prix fixe lunch has a great menu. All four of us plan to return.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMStill the best lunch in New YorkThe price has, unfortunately, increased almost 35% from $28 for 2 plates & $14 each additional plate to $38 and $19 respectively, but you are still stealing from them in broad daylight, given the level of food, the amuse bouche and petit fours and the incredible service.
I recommend - as the weather gets better and better - coming early as we did and having a glass of wine outside before enjoying your lunch. I wouldn't trade outdoor lunch at Nougatine for the incredible experience that is Jean Georges, but a glass of white or Rose on the wicker chairs near the door is worth the detour.
Be careful, as the excellent wine list is not big on value.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThese people are so nice.....Came for my 24th Wedding Aniversary. Just lunch. They made us a little cake with a chocolate plaque. Nice gesture.
My wife noticed some wine glass came out with something on it. Staff was on it like white on rice. Very pleasant and unobtrusive
A bargain for lunch at this level restaurant. Food was great with one or two VERY slight weak moments. Almost perfect. I am going back soon.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AM13 MAyI was in New York for a weekend gateway, where i also celebrated my birthday and got engaged... loved the place5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMawesome foodwent here for my birthday and everything was so delicious. I am very picky and I really liked this place. Would go again when I visit NYC in the future!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place i recommendThe most wonderful French food I ever had, unforgettable moment I shared these good food with my parents.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMParadiseSimply put, this is the pinnacle of New York dining.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMTop of the Food ChainJG is as good as advertised. I often go & eat at the bar in Nougatine. I have not eaten in the formal dining room for several years. This past Sunday we hosted a couple in from LA. The food was fantastic & worthy of its lofty reputation and price. It was a 3 hour hour experience and it was as good as it gets. I dine out very often in NYC & travel for business. There has been a lot of chatter about celebrity chefs. JG is a case where the chef became a celebrity. He is there almost every time I am in Nougatine actually working/running the business. The prices are preset and with four people the tab runs up pretty quickly (my friends did not drink). We did not bat an eyelash at the near $700 bill...it was worth every penny.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMeeting expectations....A memorable Mother's Day. Everything ordered was excellent, except the sea urchin. Something about the yuzu that neither my son nor I liked, but I was offered an alternative. Our server, was attentive, knowledgeable, and most professional. My only criticism, frankly, was that t was too much to eat at one sitting. We were all quite "stuffed" by the third course - and then there was dessert. It might have been all the more pleasing to have had smaller portions and somewhat of a smaller prix fixe, in proportion. Regardless, Jean Georges deserves its Relais & Châteaux standing and recognition as one of New York's finer gourmet restaurants. I would return.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood lunch time dealWent of the lunch time deal after a very strong recommendation form colleagues. Pretty impressed food was innovative and very delicious a few mistakes were handled very well by the servers. Excellent wine list. Not sure it would be worth it for diner if I'm honest -- I've eaten at better 2 stared places in EU, very good but not perfection and franklye for the cost and reputation I should have left crying tears of joy - and I wasnt quite there5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBest in Fine DiningOne of the best meals I have had! Would definitely come back as frequently as I can.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLived up to its reputation.Lived up to its reputation. An extra points for perfect service compared to some of its ego-chef-driven rival fine dining restaurants. The tasting menus were wonderful and they accomodated a few special requests without hesitation. The only downside is that there are no seats available at the bar for a drink since it it used by many who are actually dining at the bar.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday LunchA perfect selection for a late afternoon lunch, especially for special occasion because the staff is extremely accommodating with the menu, wine list, and even provide tons of extras (champagne and decadent cake for a birthday; hand made treats from the chef pre-meal,) to make the experience unforgettable. While not my first time at this location, it was my favorite and I will definitely return for other special occasions ans events.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic ExperienceI took my mother to a special lunch at Jean Georges and the experience was everything I hoped it would be. The service was very attentive and helpful, the staff was a joy. And the food, a heavenly experience. My favorite was the soft shell crab, so delicate and flavorful. Every course in fact, was a marvel of presentation and a joy to taste.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Lunch Set in NYCBest Lunch set 2 course plus complimentary amuse bouche and petits four for a great $$!
you can also get a taste of every wine by the glass for really great price!
Well done! reservation is a must (table by the window is beautiful)5/8/2013 12:00:00 AM$240for an okay,UNspectacular lunchMe and my fiancé went there for lunch, maybe for dinner they improve(?) The food at the JG was nothing special. No surprises by the kitchen at all. When we are talking about 3-Michelin-Star, we are talking about high expectations and exceptional food, like at Daniel Boulud or Paul Bocuse - outstanding kitchen. The JG doesn't play in the liga of a 2or3-Star-Restaurant at all. The Riesling was good, even when it wasn't "very dry", but sweet like a dessert wine. (No sommelier) The marshmallow at the end was not more special than in a delicate supermarket. Also not sure if you wanne let your guest leave with that flavour, specially not those who are used to get at least sth like a foie-gras-iced white choclate lolly or sth special like that.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional again.Third lunch in as many years...the only place we MUST visit when in NYC.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMI could die happy after dinner!One of the best dining experiences we've ever had. The service was very friendly and polite, we even got a small dessert with candles for our anniversary. But what impressed us the most was the food, absolutely outstanding! Very well presented and outrageously delicious! I could die happy after this dinner!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFab 3* not too pricey lunchThis topped off our NY trip very nicely. Amazing personal service. Out of this world food. Reasonable price tag. This is a very good 3* lunch deal.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the tripWe were in NYC to attend the James Beard Foundation awards, and Jean Georges was the highlight of the trip. Service was spectacular, and the food exceeded our hyped up expectations. We will return, often.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeWe had lunch Sunday before matinee. Service was excellent. Presentation was amazing. Food quality and taste was great. The combination of ingredients and flavors were exceptional. Next time we are in NYC we will definitely repeat, this time for dinner.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMStill great after all these yearsNever fails to get the job done. Great food. Service is friendly, efficient, and not pretentious.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAfter many visits to thisAfter many visits to this restaurant, I can honestly say that we've never been disappointed in either the food or service. Consistently outstanding service and food that will leave a long lasting impression and will be hard to duplicate in any other restaurant. Truly a special dinner worth every penny!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMamazing service and equallyamazing service and equally good food! We had a perfect luncheon experience.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely lunchWe had a great lunch. The dining room is a very special place to dine, very romantic.

We came to NYC for a great lunch and we were not disappointed. Waitstaff were so nice and friendly and the food was to die for. Just what we were looking for and we were not disappointed. Lunch was just perfect. Ambience was excellent and noise level very low. Perfect all the way.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSerenity on the Upper West SideHad a wonderful celebratory lunch at Jean George's this week. The tasting menu was divine and service was excellent but relaxed. Chef was extremely accommodating to our preferences.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSplended night of foodThe food and service was great. My companion noticed that some of the dishes were over salted and had too many flavors. The halibut which I tasted was buried in a slight excess of flavor and salt. Otherwise ,bring lots of money.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMA Favorite for All OccasionsWent for lunch and had 2 courses and dessert. First course was the Foie Gras Parfait which was amazing! Think salted caramel and dried cherry foie gras heaven. Second course was a beef tenderloin with crispy potatoes. Again, the beef was cooked perfectly and the potatoes were perfectly crisp. Went for the Caramel for dessert which was fantastic! One note is that there was and Argentinian White Wine for $9 a glass that was delicious! Can't wait to get back on our next visit to NYC!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMSensational LunchBrilliant food, wine and service and great value for lunch.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a taste treatWe've been coming here for years.

If you have any dietary restrictions make sure you inquire because the menu did not mention that the sauce for the Arctic char had shellfish in it.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was a spectacular lunch.This was a spectacular lunch. We requested to add two guests at the last minute and they were extremely gracious and accommodating. Our guests said it was the best lunch they had ever eaten. We were seated at what seemed to be a very large round table, yet the 4 of us had no difficulty carrying on a conversation. I had lunch here in December 1997, and I have to say it was more spectacular now. I strongly recommend this as the second best way to enjoy this Mecca of gastronomy. (The third best way would be to sit in the bar/lounge where you can control the cost of your meal even more, but with a very different ambiance.)4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, the food, serviceAs always, the food, service and overall experience was impeccable. To quote the person I took there "It was all fabulous... best birthday of my recent decade...it was perfect"

5 out of 5 stars.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome Experience Overall!Unfortunately only had room for a third of the tasting menu during lunch. Will just need to go back to try everything else.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
