A word from Jean Georges
Jean-Georges opened in 1997 to critical acclaim. The jewel of Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s empire, the restaurant offers the very best in fine dining. Consistently awarded four stars by the New York Times and three Michelin stars, Jean-Georges presents exquisitely crafted dishes blending French, American, and Asian influences. Chef Jean-Georges is a master at maintaining the essence of ingredients while using them inventively to produce the best flavor. Jean-Georges’ chic and intimate dining room was redesigned by Thomas Juul-Hansen, with striking lighting by L’Observatoire. Impeccable service, tableside preparations, and floor-to-ceiling windows with stunning views of Central Park and Columbus Circle all contribute to an unforgettable dining experience. Jean-Georges offers a three-course prix-fixe menu and two six-course tasting menus: a traditional tasting of the chef’s signature dishes, and a seasonal tasting featuring fresh market ingredients.

    Dined on 11/24/2014
    The prix fix lunch menu, which a couple of years ago was the best bargain in town (at I think $28 for two courses) is now $48, so not a steal, but the food is still excellent and if one doesn't order drinks or dessert (which isn't necessary as they give you little chocolates and macaroons anyway) it's a good deal for a delicious lunch at a lovely (and quiet!) restaurant.

    Absolutely superb meal in every way; at a correspondingly steep price. The chef's seasonal tasting menu was wonderful - every single course was excellent; not an average dish in the lot, which is not always the case in chef's menus. Several dishes were in the "some of the best we've ever had" category, including a "simple" Kumamato oyster in a wonderful vinegrette (and that was an amuse bouche!) The service was incredibly attentive without being at all obtrusive. The wine list is extensive and expensive; we enjoyed the wine pairing option, which (not surprisingly) was completely European (mainly French). All in all, a highly enjoyable and memorable splurge.

    I fell in love with the chef when a trio of deliciousness arrived to my table to greet me. One of these items - A tasting of chestnut soup and a mini ravioli was truly a religious moment. The Sea Bass entree was perfectly cooked and bathed in a sauce that can only be described as heaven, though my server eloquently described the mushroom tea that is the beginning of this masterpiece. There are a lot of expensive places to eat in NYC with celebrity chefs - and none of them can hold a candle to the brilliance from start to finish that is Jean Georges.

    No recomiendo este restaurante, porque el precio es totalmente desproporcionado al servicio y calidad de la comida, como su servicio, poco cálido y con un menú en ingles, que el propio meitre no sabe traducir al castellano o francés.- No nos han sabido brindar un cena especial como queríamos, no solo empañada por los precios astronómicos sin Justificación alguna (ubicación, ambiente, trato personalizado,etc..).- (Cenamos en Paris en champs ellises, coste similar pero con un trato excelente y buena comida. Y eso ya es decir Mucho.-) Me han cobrado 40U$S de suplemento en el cubierto de 142U$S por pedir Wagiu y lo que sirvieron no llega a 200gr de un corte de Wagiu de calidad, probablemente fuera una parte del vacio, mezclado con una salsa agridulce, con setas que no pude comer.

    I have been to Jean George numerous times but this night was special. After a very stressful & grueling day, I need a treat to help soothe my soul. I looked up on Open Table for any good restaurants & amazinglly there was a reservation at 5:45pm & it was already 5pm! We changed clothes, got an Uber car. We were in Midtown and made it just in time. We were greeted by familiar faces of the staff and were treated as amazing as we always have in the past.After my first glass of a fine chardonnay our incredible dining experience began. There is nothing on the menu that isn't great. My biggest problem is not ordering some of my old favorites. As soon as dinner service started all my problems disappeared and all things were right in heaven.

    The food at JG is exquisite, the service impeccable and the experience of your special occasion will be memorable. It will be however an outrageously priced memory. As always JG offer a choice of prefix menus. You can pick and choose amongst the courses and there is flexibility to your choices by course. Each bite was luscious from the peekytoe crab dumplings to the tuna and the truffle pasta ($60 supplement) to the char and the lamb ($20 supplement) and on to the desserts. It is my opinion that if you are going to offer a prefix at $128 pp include what is available within the price range of the prefix. It's almost insulting to have supplemental charges added to your choices. Note to restaurant - I sat through our special dinner staring at a small vase of a single flower that had dead leaves on it. Really?? How tacky. Perhaps before dinner one of your waiters can pop around the corner to the market and you can spring for a few fresh flowers.....

    We tried Jean-George for lunch a few days ago. The food was excellent, but the service was so stylized it was distracting. Our server was slightly abrupt and it took a couple tries before we understood what she was telling us about how the menu worked. Then she seemed upset that we only wanted wine by the glass. Then the distraction started. All aspects of the actual place service had to be done in simultaneous tandem by two servers - set down the first course, remove the empty plates, then repeat for subsequent courses -- always two persons, one for my wife, one for me, and complete with head nods to get the timing just right. It makes me chuckle to remember it. Some folks might love it, but it struck us as something over-the-top that Mr. Trump might have considered the pinnacle of service.

    We have eaten at Jean Georges a couple of times and really enjoyed every aspect of the experience. Its been maybe three years since we were last there. When we walked in we were shocked at how dingy and outdated it felt. We were not that impressed with the choices on the menu and did get a substitution so we could have a salad. The server acted more like she was selling caskets at a mortuary then serving people who enjoy an expensive special occasion dinner. Sorry, we won't be back until this restaurant gets back up to pace.

    Eating at a 3-star Michelin restaurant is a splurge for most people, including us. Lunch at Jean Gorges is a great way to do it. The army of attentive but gentle staff, the carefully orchestrated service, the settings and decor, and, of course the food, all remind you that you're in an epicurean stratosphere. An amuse bouche included a salty foam atop a raw oyster. The fois gras mousse appetizer was as heavenly as we remembered from our last visit, and the tuna tarter appetizer was both generous and delectable. For mains both of us had chestnut topped sweetbreads. The black truffle sauce that accompanied it, while delicious by itself, combined with the chestnuts to form a little too much competition for the delicacy of the sweetbreads. But we both considered the dish a success, if not a knockout. Nothing about this, our second visit, would dissuade us from hurrying back.

    Is it normal for an Amuse to linger on the lip's memory for a week? A velvet chestnut soup martini dotted with a mushroom pillow ravioli suggest it is absolutely normal! Peekytoe dumplings, silky, plump and nearly translucent bathing in meyer lemon tea and a second dish of Black Fish encrusted with Nuts and Seeds were tantalizing. The option for wine tasting as an option in lieu of full glass made for a wine list as lustful as the lunch options. Inviting, warm and professional staff.

    Two of us went on a beautiful fall day for Sunday brunch. The food was not simply great - the food was PERFECT. From the amuse bouche to dessert, everything was excellent and perfectly executed - inventive use of classic ingredients, remaining true to what your taste buds call for - deliciousness. The service was attentive, but at a very relaxed pace so we could take our time and enjoy each and every mouthful and that extra glass of very wonderful Sancerre. Expensive and well worth it!

    Cozy atmosphere with very good food and service, although our table felt somewhat crowded in that we were surrounded by other tables and with the large number of wait staff passing by, it became occasionally distracting. The staff was very good at being attentive without being intrusive. Crab dumplings were tasty and a fun twist on this traditionally Chinese dish. Sea scallops were well flavored but mildly overcooked. Butternut squash soup was very good. Gulf shrimp was good but a bit fishy. Sea bass was delicious. Miyazaki wagyu was excellent. The Autumn and Caramel dessert groups were wonderful and an extra chocolate dessert was a nice touch to address the mild shortcomings of the appetizers. My wife and I left full and satisfied.

    A wonderful restaurant in all senses of the word. Well worth the journey from London UK to this New York grand lady in its subtle and quietly luxurious setting. And remarkably good value in the 3 (actually 4) course prix fixe menu, which is not often found in a 3 Michelin-starred venue. Just be cautious in the wine.
