    Convenient for hotel guests and a regular spot for the upper east side crowd, Jean-George's is a find and the kind of upscale dining you seek out repeatedly because it is so consistently excellent. We dined on a Sunday night at a great table in the central dining room, surrounded by couples and families. Our salad and salmon dinner was divine, the fish roasted to perfection and simply served with sautéed spinach and creamy mashed . My mom had caramel ice cream fir dessert and we sipped a good french white. The breakfast is also superior to any hotel I've experienced -soy lattes made to order and stevia included in the sweeteners was satisfying. We ordered yogurt with fruit and poached eggs and everything was seasonal and ripe.

    I arrived at 7:35 for a 7:45 reservation. I was not seated till 8:30. I was seated in the bar and a close by guest was speaking so loud to his table it was hard to ignore his constant use if profanity. My server was nice and helped navigate the meal as I have to eat gluten free. The good was good, but the entire experience was one of the worst I've had in NYC.

    While the restaurant ambience is quite good, the dining room was one quarter full, and we were put at a small table for two, even though there were plenty of larger tables which would have been more comfortable. This restaurant is very expensive. I had an appetizer size portion of pasta for $22, and it was lukewarm and mostly pasta, not other added ingredients. Wine prices are ridiculous, and they get six glasses to the bottle! Not a wonderful experience by any means.

    Great food but took forever to get our main meal. We got there at 8:45 and didn't leave until well past 11. I want to say we waited 30 minutes at least between apps and main course. The sticky sushi was great, shrimp salad, desserts, drinks. Not very romantic as the place is so loud. They sat us right next to the bar initially with waiters butts in our faces and we asked to move which they did and our waiter was nice but the wait for food was just bad. We were starving!!

    Despite having made reservations a month ago, we were seated in the very noisy bar. A small, cramped table began the experience. We arrived at 8:15 and did not receive our entrees until nearly 10:30. Food was just ok...a squash side dish was cold and uninspired. Waiter blamed the kitchen, and manager apologized with a glass of wine, but still a difficult experience.

    The food was delicious although the main courses were somewhat uninspiring. The wine was also outrageously overpriced with markups around 4-5 x retail and almost nothing under $100/bottle. Prix fixe menu would also be a good addition, as well as more attentive service.

    The bar was full at 7!! Nice maître d set up a perfect table for 6 in the glass roof room. Lovely bright high ceilings, comfortable banquette for 3 on one side, chairs on the other. Very tasty cocktail, yummy ginger margarita...food was all very fresh and well prepared. My gazpacho tasted like it was just picked from the garden. Clean bright flavors, not oily. Fresh hamachi sushi perfect. All the mains perfectly prepared with care and clear tastes. Nothing fussy and weird. That's a relief. Service was very good although wait time between courses was a bit extended. For a special evening I would recommend. Staff helpful with 2 guests with food allergies. definitely pricey...

    The food was okay but no better than more moderately priced restaurants. We were first seated in a banquette with a ridge in the middle of the seat against the wall, which is very uncomfortable to sit on. No one should be seated at this table. We moved ourselves one table over. The service was terrible. We waited a while for our main courses. When we finally saw them arriving, my $72 main course was delivered to the table next to us. I would not go back.

    First time I had dinner and have had lunch many times with clients. I like the menu a lot but service not as good at night, even though wasn't crowded when we got there. We ordered a bottle of wine and took a long time to get it -15 minutes. Otherwise food was good and support wait staff very good.

    Sat outside based on other recommendation. To my surprise in this small space they allowed smoking! A good bottle of white wine arrived warm and was taken away for chilling only to return upon my request each time our glasses were empty. Sever was ernest but disappeared for long periods. Food was good (not great) and over priced. Overall a very disappointing experience after high expectations based on experiences at other JG establishments. When I mentioned this to the maître d, she seemed uninterested. We won't return.

    Our evening at the Mark was one to remember! Beautiful people and beautifully presented cuisine in a richly elegant atmosphere was wonderful all around. Grilled Octopus and Crispy Sushi appetizers were as good as they looked, and the Veal Milanese was great as well. Service was attentive without being overbearing. Our waiter recommended an excellent wine which I appreciated. Pretty expensive but worth it. I highly recommend and look forward to returning one day!

  • A favorite go-to place for brunch

    Dined on 8/17/2014
    As a creature of habit, The Mark Restaurant is a favorite go-to place for a special brunch. Always consistent, and a pleasant experience. We always start with the cold lobster tails and sushi. The sushi includes a nice mix of flavors and color, all resting on delicately toasted bread-- a nice alternative to the standard rice base. A personal favorite entrée is the Croque-Monsieur (listed as 'Croque M' on the menu). In my opinion, it's one of the best items on the menu. The perfectly toasted bread base makes a delicious vessel to hold the béchamel, add to that, the ham, Gruyère, Herbes de Provance, and topped with a quail egg-- all balance perfectly, and stand out individually. Quite a challenge for such a rich sauce. Brilliant!

    Dinner here was fabulous. I thoroughly enjoyed the crispy sushi, the shrimp salad, and the beef tenderloin. The sushi was fresh and interesting. The shrimp salad was sophisticated and very large and filling. The beef tenderloin was the best steak I have ever had in my life, no kidding. Just delicious, homey food without too much fuss. The waitstaff was attentive without being overbearing. The ambiance here is quite high end. A great place for a special occasion or business dinner.

    One wish I had while visiting New York with my teenage daughters was to expose them to fine dining experiences. After a day at the Guggenheim taking in all of the fantastic art we also had lunch there. Which was topped off with gelato in Central Park. After a walk on Fifth Avenue they asked about dinner. Last minute I reserved a table at the Mark Jean-George's. When we arrived we were welcomed with open arms. Dinner was a work of eatable art & the service was endearing. My daughters ordered Caesar salad which was fresh & crisp, pasta with sumptuous meatballs. I ordered beef carpaccio with delectable regianno shavings that landed on my palate to be quickly met by an effervescent parade of Proseco. It was a marvelous experience. Merci
