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.

    I had already dined at Jean Georges 3 times before and had always been impressed with the quality and creativity, but this time was the best of all. All the dishes were tasteful, very well prepared and original, including the appetizers offered by the Chef. This is by far the best restaurant I have ever been in New York, very consistent at a high standard. The foie gras (both options) is to die for!

    Excellent food, but multiple dishes were too salty, and I love salt. Also, only AAA five diamond restaurant I have been to that has salt on the table. Service slightly lacking. Also, only AAA five diamond restaurant I have been to that has messed up a course, which we had to bring to their attention. Many other St. Regis Jean Georges restaurants offer better service and perhaps food than this flagship.

    What made it a bad experience ? My friend is allergic to nuts - but when we got the chees they suddenly forgot and served bred with nuts - luckely I could taste it and she did not eat it and god some other bread. If she had eaten it we would have had to go to the hospital. Further most of the waiters were very impersonal and the moment they told about the menu they turned around - not a smile or a second if we had desired to ask any questions. The manager apologized when we mentioned it to her (about the nuts) and was very sweet.

    Our experience at jean George's was exceptional! The service was the best I have ever experienced, and the food was amazing. We had the summer tasting menu and the dishes were very tasty with wonderful presentations. The wait staff was very attentive and they explained everything we were eating and all answered many questions that I had about preparation and ingredients. I just cannot say enough about this wonderful restaurant. It is worth every penny!!!

Food was beautifully presented with the flavor beyond anything I've ever experienced to date. The elegance of the servers along with the impeccable ambiance left us with such a memorable experience that one could only hope to have.

    Exceptional service and sensational food. Two choices of menu. Tasting menus or a selection menu from light to heavy meals. We chose to select out own. Scallops melted in mouth, charred corn ravioli with basil sauce was a dance on the taste buds. Chocolate tasting plate for desert was delicious- the ganache full of flavour. Cocktails are a much as well. Jean-George was a true highlight of our trip to NYC

    However high your expectations may be, they WILL be exceeded. All aspects of your dining will be experiential; from the amuse bouche trio, to the "before you leave" sweets. Whenever my schedule permits I dine at Jean-Georges for lunch. I am slowly working my way through all of the options offered. Yesterday it was Peekytoe Crab and Black Bass... next time.... can hardly wait!

    My husband and I celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary at Jean Georges on Labor Day weekend - at lunch (3 hours!). We each selected à la carte plates, along with some wonderful Champagne. Explosions of wonderful flavors and textures, incredible service beyond belief - so helpful and friendly (zero attitude). Of particular note: yellowfin tuna ribbons and foie gras with strawberry granola yum. Was so good, we returned the following day for an early lunch at Nougatine next door (same-ish menu) - again wonderful service and exquisite tasting food. Expensive (very) but worth it for a special treat.

    We booked and went to Jean George's with a little trepidation, not sure if we were going to feel entirely comfortable in a NY 3 star Michelin restaurant. However being the foodies we are we were determined to give what is considered by many to be one of the best restaurants in NYC a try. I am so happy to say the staff were all wonderful and welcoming, and the food was just beautiful. We had scallops, crab, hake, veal and the chocolate plate, along with beautiful complimentary amuse bouche selections to start the meal and petit fours to end the meal. If you're an Aussie like we are, just know the coffee is great too! We'd love to return one day!

We had a vegetarian with us this time, and the restaurant put together a very interesting vegetarian tasting menu that pleased our guest enormously, especially a roasted corn ravioli.

    Amazing food, great wine list and professional but friendly service in a beautiful and relaxed setting...for what else could you ask? Jean-George's can be a great value if you're on a budget, a regular go-to gem, or the perfect over-the-top celebratory meal. The only "problem" encountered here is having to decide whether to go with the same "I could eat this every day/best thing I ever had" dishes or to try something new...

    My wife and I went there for her birthday. We have been there three times. We chose the prix fixe menu, which is superb. The appetizers (particularly the ahi tuna), seafood, duck and desserts were delicious. The only mistake was my turbot, which was too dark (turbot is white). I sent it back to the kitchen. After that, I received a proper turbot. My wife had eaten her turbot. This mistake threw off the timing of our dinner. The desserts were amazing: four desserts for each person. Jean-Georges has found the best person for desserts. Service was very efficient and friendly. After the desserts, my wife received a surprise birthday cake with a candle. Perfect.

    This is my third time for lunch at Jean Georges: outstanding in all areas and the best bargain in town. Our meal began with 4 kinds of superb bread (Swedish rye if my favorite). Next was the elegant, surprising and amazing amuse bouches consisting of a tiny perfectly airy corn fritter, a raspberry gazpacho in a hand blown glass and a tiny cube of watermelon gel goodness. The My main course; Black Bass Crusted with Nuts and Seeds and Sweet and Sour Jus was a perfect marriage of textures and flavors, and beautifully presented. I couldn't have been happier celebrating my 60th birthday. Desserts are beautiful, whimsical and delicious. Prepare to be pampered by perfect service in a luxurious setting with the best lunch in NYC.
