  • Was totally underwhelmed by the food!

    Rubbery omelet was entirely WRONG for this caliber of a kitchen - Rock hard pecan pie and luke warm coffee, too. Hmmm. On the other side of the spectrum, great service, funky fun bar area and lovely setting in the dining room (especially the room with the large skylight), and perfect location after visiting museums on the Upper East Side, but what a disappointment the food was overall despite lovely plating and excellent pain poilane. Best dish was the octopus appetizer with the Mark burgers a close second. But, I'm still stuck on the sad fact that it seemed as if the kitchen just "called it in" for our omelets, which would have been such an EASY dish to have gotten right.

    The restaurant didn't have our Open Table reservation and rather grudgingly gave us the worst table. I physically shifted the table so the waiters didn't have to keep pushing by my partner to get to the other tables. Service was attentive at first but by the end the waiter was too busy doing admin on a screen at the bar to pay attention to us (or anyone else presumably) so we were late for our next appointment. Not a great experience frankly.

    Have been to a number of Jean-George restaurants - quality of the food was always incredible and the dishes were extremely creative. The Mark had nothing in common with the J-G meals I have had aside from the high price of the food and wine. The dish selection was extremely mundane. The tables were too close to one another and as a result, the wait staff constantly bumped into the back of my wife's chair and didn't do anything to try to avoid doing so (despite her pointing the situation out to the most offending porter). The hotel lobby was the nicest part of the experience. Very disappointing overall.

    Are greatly diminished in quality. They seem to be relying on the name of the chef. But they are not delivering - especially because they are in an ideal position in the hotel to be fabulous. It has become just another predictable fair quality restaurant. Service staff is totally untrained and casual.

    Went for wife's birthday, with four adult children and their spouses and 2/5 of the grandchildren. Everyone loved what they ordered, service was attentive and ambiance was very nice. Wine list is extensive and expensive, but the wine we ordered was terrifIc. It is great place to go for a special occasion or a romantic, special dinner with your wife or significant other. My wife recommended it since she was there a couple of times for lunch. Glad we went.

    Even though the host (I am not a regular there) sat me in possibly the worst spot in the restaurant and because of this I may never go back, I have to say the place is nice. For a hotel restaurant which forces them in with union waiters who at best are awful, the service was ok. The food also was better than ok for a hotel restaurant. Décor , outstanding. They could do better with the métier de …not rude, but not really great. They should send them to Cipriani for a tutorial in taking care of clients. A great host usually knows who is coming and where to seat them.

    I have been to many very nice restaurants, however this was not one of them. The initial seating was between to seat cushions & we asked to be moved. We were and then we sat. And sat. And stared at walls and watched 5 minutes go by before anyone noticed and even gave us a menu. Mind you, other tables were greeted. The tuna tartar appetizer was missing ingredients based on their website picture vs. actual item and the taste. Before the second course we requested the wine list. When we tasted the wine, we asked to see the list again as neither chardonnay was buttery. The main course arrived and the waiter said he would be right back. 15 minutes later he showed up confused. White truffle pasta = macaroni and cheese. Thumbs down.

    Well, I expected more from The Mark... Waited for more than 15 minutes after seated to a waiter come to offer water.... Not compatible with the restaurant... My main course was a risotto with chicken and truffles. The chicken was burned giving a taste at the whole meal... The wine was a dream... The restaurant was full of elegant people... And the hotel is very beautiful The maitre was very polite and kind... But sincerely , I was disapoited

    This Mark offers a pleasant hotel restaurant in a bright, tasteful room. We thought it a convenient choice for the Whitney Museum. The food was handsomely presented by attentive, trained staff. who accommodated a surprise guest. Brunch, however, isn't imaginative in the least.

    While the Mark is an "upscale restaurant", the music was sufficiently loud and with a strong beat that conversation at the table was extremely difficult. The food was excellent, but we would have appreciated it if the waiter had explained that it was necessary to order side dishes to have a complete meal. Overall, there are lot's of restaurants in NYC with lower noise levels, same quality of food, and more friendly service than the Mark.

    Everything about the restaurant heightens the expectation of a truly superb dining experience. Alas: service, no matter how solicitous and courteous, was slow - 45 mins before any food was served. Of the three dishes ordered, the appetizer -a grilled octopus - was a real disappointment. On the other hand, the evening was largely redeemed by the two main courses - a filet mignon and the cod served on a bed of spinach - both of which were excellent although the portions surprisingly small. Wine served by the glass was only fair. There would seem to be little excuse for that as there are some very good tasting wines that do not cost the price of an entire dinner. Lastly, and most surprisingly:no French Bread at a French restaurant!

    Sorry to say we were not impressed. Just dined at Inn at Pound Ridge and had a lovely meal. This was not the same experience. Salads were so packed in the bowl we were afraid to dig in too heartily for fear of tossing lettuce all over the table - lots of lettuce very little avocado in mine - my partners : lots of frisee not many lardons. Lobster and three cheese pizza nothing special - again lots of dough not much lobster. Veal milanese was odd in that the breading was puffed up around the veal. Did enjoy the escarole and pecans that came with it. We were seated at the end of a banquette that felt like a see saw each time someone else was seated the entire thing wobbled around. Maybe it should be attached to the wall?

    Once white truffle season started could't stay away from one of my favorite spots in the city. The experience here is always guaranteed to be impecable. From the host to the service to the ambiance but most importantly the food! Amazing with new dishes every season and consistantly perfect! The white truffle pasta is a must have and also the Dover Sole that is one of the best I've had in a long time... They also have a new Cod dish that is to die for and now that the season is getting cooler the lamb chops are a must try. Highly reccomend this place again and again. Always perfection!

    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 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!!
