Jean Claude 2
Consistently good. Friendly service and pleasant atmosphere.
Family getting together first time since pandemic started!
Iceberg, walnut, roquefort salad for starter was quite tasty. Excellent skate fish for main
course. Partner had salmon which was also enjoyed. Good service and very reasonable for eastside. Highly recommend.
the scallops, skate & foie gras were all excellent & the portions were good
The best French bistro in UES hands down. Everthing was so delicious.
We were recognized and welcomed back after pandemic absence. The restaurant has been expanded inside and outside seating is abundant. Staff is attentive, food is fantastic and we were so happy to be back in our neighborhood favorite!
Food was great! We both ordered the skate and it was delicious, as was the crème brûlée for dessert. Highly recommend!
Not the first time we’ve been to the restaurant the food is terrific and they now have a full bar. Even better. The waiter never wrote down anything & remembered everything and got it all right good service. We will be back. Thanks for a good evening Jean Claude 2.
Really good food , really nice ambiance, relaxed but attentive service. Very comfortable covid-wise.
Loved the food, atmosphere and the attentiveness of the staff. The mussels were plump and flavorful, the fries thin, crisp and had the taste of fresh oil. And it is always a treat to request mayonnaise for the fries and not get an odd look.
Consistently very good French Bistro. Nice sidewalk set-up.
The food wasn't bad but the service is appalling. My waiter brought me scallops instead of the foie gras poêlé I had ordered as an appetizer. I think the problem here is that the waiters aren't French so if you are French and order with a French accent they don't understand. Probably best to point. My hanger steak with shallots was quite good and so was the gratin dauphinois. When I got my cheque, the waiter had forgotten to include my glass of wine. Not a way to run a restaurant....
Outstanding venue, particularly on the sidewalk. Staff are consistently friendly, highly accomodating, very professional.
It was a gorgeous spring day. Food and ambience felt authentically French. Great service. Delicious meals. Will definitely return.
Lovely lunch at Jean Claude 2. My beet salad, tuna and bread pudding were all delicious. Very good service and most reasonable prices. Excellent dining option on the UES.
First experience if Indoor dining, with two other couples, since March 2020. Felt perfectly safe, great social distancing. The food was delicious, and service was attentive. Will come back frequently.
Lovely lunch outdoors. Highly recommended. Lovely menu!
I was with a friend and we both ordered the skate, which was as usual delicious.
This was a GREAT restaurant. It was a cold find off of Open Table. I was impressed by the large selection of entrees available and the pricing. The restaurant is quaint - there is outdoor covered eating and and open patio doors that lead inside the restaurant. Along one wall are seats for two, while in the middle of the restaurant are tables to accommodate 4 person dining. The food was outstanding! I had the Salad Verte which was accompanied by goat cheese topped croutons - delicious. My entrée was Steak au Poivre. It was very tender and the pepper sauce was perfect! The pommes frites go without saying! Who doesn't love crispy "French" french fries? My dining companions had Poulet Roti (roasted organic chicken) over chicken-basic puree as well as Porc a la Dijonnaise which was sliced pork loin with a mustard seed vinaigrette accompanied by with fingerling potatoes and brussel sprouts. They both had a French beer and said it was delicious.
The portions are more than adequate - which unfortunately did not leave any room for desert. The staff are attentive - your water glass or beverage glass did not remain empty for very long.
We were all impressed with the food and recommend this restaurant without reservation! Delicious!
Lovely local French restaurant. Food is always wonderful as is the service and ambience.
Great sidewalk dining also. Comfortable..casual..French..💙
It was the first birthday we could celebrate in public. Thanks for making it great.
Clean and open inside. Service is friendly. Food is great. Will def be back.
Traditional French cuisine. Ample portions. Nothing memorable though
Service wonderful as always. Food is delicious. Highly recommend!
Excellent food and service. A wonderful, friendly neighborhood restaurant
Very pleasant Waiters polite food wonderful
We had a really lovely time, the food was great. The service was great. We eat inside but the doors were wide open so it didn’t feel uncomfortable at all. Highly recommend!!!
Steak was tough. Creme brulee was partially cold. Waiter (not I) decided (for me) when I was finished with a beverage (I wasn’t).
We ordered the skate and mussels which were both delicious. Started with the beet salad which was also great. Service was friendly. The only issue was that they had no Rose wine-something about the delivery not arriving. We enjoyed the Sancerre but was disappointed about the Rose. I would go back again.
Wonderful food and accommodating staff - my husband is in a wheelchair. A great experience.
The food was disappointing. Beet salad not as good as previous years, green salad nice mix of lettuces, but dressing was sharply garlicky. Skate preparation was acceptable, but not anything special. My salmon was cooked to my requests, but I found the spinach and oyster mushrooms seriously overcooked. Creme brûlée and bread pudding were the high points, and our waiter was very pleasant.
Very good authentic French bistro food, courteous and friendly service, outdoor seating pleasant.
We dined outside on the patio. There was quite good table spacing but no dividers The food was very good. One had the Mussels and they were the biggest, most tender mussels ever. The pork dish was also excellent and as for escargot “Oo la la”
I have dined herebefore. I had the duck last night, and there was hardly any duck on the plate. Also, my gin and tonic was so "light" I asked the waiter to put a little more gin in it. The noiselevel is awful.
I have enjoyed it before, but last night was not good.
Awesome food and even better service.
Excellent as always. The frites order could be more plentiful. And martini price is a bit high for a second Avenue restaurant- they are typically $11-13 bucks in the area. 17 is way too high.
Great place for brunch inside or outdoors
Great casual restaurant. Pretty, good food and lively ambience.
All dishes were excellent. Escargot and salad were good.
