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.

    We came here for lunch - 2 courses for $48 was such a good deal. Ordered Scallops, Risotto, Veal and Tenderloin, followed by Chocolate themed dessert. The sauces takes over the flavor of the ingredient so thats not to my likings. Overall - the food was good but not great.

    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.

    Had a fantastic lunch here mid-week on a rainy fall day. Everything was perfect, and the prix fixe lunch has to be one of the best bargains in NYC. Service was superb, food was creative and delicious without being overwhelming. Will return on our next visit to Manhattan, and will surely recommend it to others.

    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.

I am always amazed by the food, but more so the beautiful choreography of the service. I don't know how they do this, but it is one of the most impressive things about this restaurant. Other high end NYC restaurants should take note.

    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.

    Our recent dinner at Jean-George was absolutely unbelievable. The food was beautifully refined, the setting is spectacular, but mostly it was the impeccable service that made such an impression on us. This was our first time at a restaurant of this caliber, and they made us feel very comfortable. We felt free to ask questions, inquire about the ingredients, talk to the sommellier, etc. We aren't high-rollers, but were treated as though we were family. I'd go back for the food, but I'd go back again and again and again for the service.

    Visited Daniel le Bernadin and JG last year and was really impressed with JG. Returned this year but was less impressed. Scallop overcooked (personal preference) Turbot Had a "fishy" taste and the wine jus sauce was salty. Did not like dish. Squab and frog legs were ok. Caviar egg was very good. the only memorable dish of the night.

    From the moment we arrived at the restaurant to the moment we left, it was one of the best dining experiences we've had. We ordered the 7 course Summer tasting menu and every course was exquisite. And the serving size was very generous. Whilst everything on the menu was incredible, the highlights for me were the Charred Corn Ravioli heirloom tomato salad and basil fondue and the Lava Lake Lamb Chop. The service was perfect. They were there when you needed them and were always willing to help without being intrusive. We were celebrating our recent wedding and they organised a special congratulations chocolate cake for us which we really appreciated. Overall, an absolutely amazing experience.

    I am from Europe. Been to many Michelin restaurants. This was not a 3 star experience. Too many tables in the room, Therefor too much noise. We were not offered winelist before the courses started to arrive. We table was not set properly. The cuttlery was thown on in between courses, spilling og wine on the linen. No wine guy. Food was good, but I would not grade it to a great Michelin restaurant. We were wondering it the US Michelin system is the same as the European?
