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.

    First, let me say that my ratings were done in relative terms. This is Jean Georges Vongerichten's flagship restaurant, it has 3 Michelin Stars, etc - it's not xyz place on the UWS, so expectations / standards are much higher. The service was exceptional, but I don't think you would expect anything less when the apparent ratio of staff to guests is 1:4. We chose the smaller of the two options - that is the 3 course menu. I had the sea scallops, the risotto and the lamb. The sea scallops were fine, honestly very forgettable. The risotto was delicious. Finally, the lamb, which was overcooked. They changed it without a word and I believe they credited me an amount as well as giving us a huge dessert tasting.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/27/2014
    I already reduced my expectations that a 3 star Michelin experience might probably not be the same as a 3 star experience in Europe. Yes, I was right. First we were left alone in the midst of the second restaurant, while our table was being prepared. At least we could have been seated. When we finally were placed at our table, what struck us instantly was the noise level. It was like Grand Central station. The waiters are in general friendly, although some of them are somewhat arrogant....not necessary I think! The food, which in the end is the most important, was delicious, but not out of this world! In Europe this type of restaurant would most likely not exceed the 1 star rating. All in all, a nice experience, but fairly overrated.

    The design of the dining room at Jean-Georges is elegant, spacious, and beautiful. The service is remarkably well-trained, attentive without being intrusive, knowledgable, professional, and warm. The sommelier was very helpful in selecting a very nice wine to suit our meal. The food was expertly designed and prepared, made with outstandingly fresh ingredients. The dishes had excellent flavor and texture combinations, and each had a nice amount of personality. Overall, an amazing experience, I definitely want to return for dinner to try their tasting menus.

    we had lunch on a saturday, sitting in this little shelter, looking over the restaurant. Fantastic staff, great service , good setting. We ordered the tuna and for maincourse salmon and red snapper, Fingerlake Riesling a which went very well with the food, started with 3 amuse bouchon awesome, then the magic began with tuna and continued with the fish dishes, for dessert I chose the autumn theme with a glass of vin Santo, then a delicious espresso. This restaurant is a must to go everytime you visit NYC.

    JG has always been one of my go-to locations, particularly for the lunch - one of the best dining experiences in the U.S. and one of the best values. Well, prices have climbed dramatically and the quality of our recent meal was easily the worst of any of my visits. The veal arrived pounded extremely thin and was so dry and leathery all of us needed to send it back and the replacement beef tenderloin (which normally comes with a hefty supplement) was good but hardly an epiphany of any type. The foie gras with granola was good but not the marvel 'brule. frequently on the menu. Furthermore, wine pricing parallels food pricing and virtually no value 'lunch' wines remain on the menu. The message is clear - come with your Centurion Card!

    I dined with business colleagues and a VIP client. Our som, Josh, managed the difficult feat of being helpful yet unobtrusive. He was clearly knowledgeable and offered good suggestions, but we were a stubbornly "California" group. All good as they have a very deep (and very dangerous!) wine list. Our primary server, Caroline, did a marvelous job of handling the curveballs tossed at her by a table of foodies, maintaining a freshly-scrubbed earnestness, yet being able to improvise effortlessly as well. Two people each ordered from the "Jean-Georges" menu and two from the "Autumn" menu. We finished with a selection of desserts and cheeses, and then Caroline and the AGM, Patrick arranged an impromptu kitchen tour, which our client LOVED!

    The restaurant was recommended by a well known television personality( PS) in New York and I'm so glad we took his advice. Great ambiance for a special occasion and the four of us absolutely enjoyed the tasting menu and the entire experience. Initially we were seated in a not so desirable location but the very competent staff rectified the situation very efficiently and we had very memorable evening. I definitely would recommend this restaurant.

Delicious food, uhm, everything was very well tasting and a pleasure to look at when served. The wine recommendation was perfect to the food. Overall a pleasure, and we will for sure be back next time we visit New York. The restaurant is with lots of light from the windows facing Central Park , there is plenty of space between the tables and very comfortable to visit.

    Based on many stellar experiences at Jean Georges in the past I expected a great experience but they just knocked it out of the park this time! The new inclusion of a lunch tasting menu with the option of a wine pairing was a phenomenal experience normally reserved for dinner at a much higher price. They even accommodated our request to substitute a cheese course for dessert! A MUST reservation for foodies for a phenomenal lunch - dress is upscale casual and this is also a great spot for a power lunch. The service is unparalleled. If you are going to splurge on one NYC killer lunch this is the place without exception.

    This restaurant is not good as it used to be. I was really disappointed. Everything was good, but not exceptional. Service was very ceremonial, but it was more performance than high-grade service. We invited our very dear friends from another state, and we felt uncomfortable. We expect from food much more. It was just OK, not great.

    My nephew and I had dinner at Jean Georges. We chose the 7 course tasting menu with paired wines, and cheese. We asked for one course to be substituted with one from a 2nd tasting menu available and this was readily done. The courses were egg caviar, scallops, 10 mushroom soup, turbot, lobster terrine, boiled squab, cheese, both the autumn dessert tasting and chocolate dessert tasting. For me, the standout courses were the egg caviar, the turbot and the lobster terrine. The food and wines were excellent, and the food flavours were superb. The wine portions were generous. The service and staff were faultless. Jean Georges clearly merited its 3 star Michelin accolade and I would definitely come again. I rate the meal 9.5 out of 10.

    I loved everything about lunch. It goes without saying; the food was amazing. But what I really love is that the service matches the elegance of the food. With only 20 tables, the service is personalized/attentive without being overbearing. The dining room is beautiful. The tables are positioned to minimize the number of people sitting with their backs to center of the room. It does mean you get that weird situation at two-tops where people sit side by side. But it also means that the waitstaff aren't bumping into the back of your chair. I get why restaurants need to pack in their customers in an industry with low margins and high overhead, but it was yet another detail that sets Jean Georges apart from even other top restaurants in NYC.

    We celebrated a birthday at Jean Georges, and it was perfection. I looked on the restaurant website and saw that the dining room had two tables recessed in alcoves. I requested one, but didn't think JG would accommodate given that we are not regular customers. They did! The table was the perfect setting for a special night. It was secluded and allowed us to observe other diners while being in our world. The service -- from reception to bar to server to sommelier -- was exceptional: understated yet always there. The food was excellent. The 4-course menu was innovative and the 6 dishes we ordered were each delicious! Thank you to Jean Georges for a wonderful evening.

    I have been lucky to have eaten at some of the top restaurants in the U.S and Europe. I had always wanted to try JG and was able to have dinner there on a Sat. We arrived after a hectic subway ride from Soho but were greeted warmly by the staff. Our table was beautifullly decorated and my daughter, who manages part time at a known cooking store in our area, was very impressed. The service was outstanding and not pretentious in the least. The food was sublime. We each had the autumn seasonal menu and they graciously substituted 2 dishes for me as I do not like certain fish. The breads and dessert were amazing, and my daughter loved the marshmallow treat. We had cocktails and champagne. The bill was under $600, and it was well worth it.
