Perfect. Have not been in a few years and really missed the great food
Great food and service. Try the escargot! Chicken is amazing. Cod too.
A wonderful evening. Food and service good as usual.
Very basic french food with very small portions
I had omelette and crème brûlée and honestly it was very basic
Tap water only or sparkling water
What about still or filtered ?
Great food! Friendly service. Overall a good experience for the price.
The fine music could have been louder so we didn’t need to hear the hushed conversations at every table. Food was delightful, and reasonable priced.
So grateful to have Jean-Claude in the neighborhood. Was perfect for a solo lunch. Delicious Pan Bagnat and the included fries were perfect.
Delicious! Service, food, ambiance. Perfect. Every time.
Always great food, friendly service, nice atmosphere and great value.
Excellent CLASSIC French bistro fare, fresh and well prepared by attentive and amusing staff. Quiet on a Monday nt-- so glad it was open! Foie gras, mussels and baked cod very satisfying. TRULY wonderful choc mousse, and lovely bread pudding in just the right serving size.
Comfortable welcoming room and service.
It’s the best!
Incredible simply French food!
Fine meal, fine ambience, excellent wine, excellent service. Terrific experience. No complaints. I'll be back!
Great neighborhood place
Service is very accommodating
Lovely neighborhood French bistro. The food is yummy with enough choice for everyone but not overwhelming. Service is perfect and the atmosphere is warm and comfortable.
Great neighborhood place for casual dinner, lunch etc.
I've been here before and will be back again soon.
Jean Claude is the best!!!! Food never disappoints and the service is top notch. Rudy is the best server in the world! Love bringing family and friends here and it has become a tradition to gather here with family for lunch or dinner.
Skip it. Food is mediocre at best. Service is terrible.
Very nice neighborhood restaurant. I go there often, and find it has improved since they expanded. The restaurant is pleasant, with the tables nicely spaced. The service is attentive, and the food is reliably excellent. And the prices are reasonable, as NY prices go.
Feels like being in Paris! Had a fantastic lunch at Jean Claude II. We were greeted warmly, the tables were spaced out nicely and the food was amazing. Very eclectic French lunch menu - tons of choices. I had the fluffiest omelette with mushrooms and Gouda - I’d love to know how they make it so fluffy! It was a great lunch dining experience and I’m looking forward to returning again for dinner.
Disappointed in the food
Good place for brunch/lunch with friends on a Sunday during the holiday season. We all enjoyed our wine and meal and the service was efficient and unhurried.
My one concern is that this is the only restaurant I've been to lately (and that's not many), which did not screen anyone for vaccination, which I found a bit concerning. But, since my party was vaccinated and the restaurant was not crowded, it wasn't a deal breaker.
Good but not great. Certainly not a genuine French Bistro. The food was good but I've tasted better. Our server made a number of cardinal mistakes (forgetting to bring things we asked for until we asked again (and again)). In at least one case, a request for a side order of Ratatouille was never produced. The steaks were too chewy and much too heavily salted and the Crème Brule was clawingly sweet vs vanilla-accented.
Not sure I'd rush back even though it is in the neighborhood.
Waiter was helpful but when I asked, he said everything was good. What do you recommend? Everything is good, lol. More convincing if you single out a few signature dishes or popular options. Not a complaint but can't remember the last time that happened.
Felt very rushed. Orders came wrong - fish raw,duck w sauce. Disappointed. First time back since Covid. Was our favorite neighborhood restaurant..
The food was authentic, well prepared, and the presentation was very nice. The waiters provided useful guidance.
We love to eat at Jean Claude 2. The food is first rate and reasonably priced and the menu has all the best bistro dishes. It’s our go to French restaurant in NYC.
All good. Delicious salmon.
Lovely restaurant! Dinner with friends and everything was cooked perfectly. Salads, escargot, and tuna tartare to start and then the pork dijonaisse, the duck, two of our favorites and the Bouillabaise, a special treat, were delicious..
Lovely French bistro reminiscent of those in France. Delicious food.
Very positive food and service good
Wonderful service and excellent food
The space has been increased and all four people in our party loved the food and service. Tables are spaced wel l apart.
Staff was very warm and accommodating. We had brunch/ lunch with friends from out of state, and all enjoyed our meals, and ambiance.
Always a joy to be at Jean Claude's.....great food and wine, fun ambience, and reasonable prices....doesn't get much better than that!
Jean Claude 2 is solid. Nice personnel. Menu a bit bland, even for a Bistro.
A Thon Tartare dish is presented with absolutely minimal culinary "input": chop up the fish, sprinkle sesame seeds and minor sauce. Place a spoonful of the stuff in middle of plate, add a few lettuce leaves to side.. Dessert menu unimaginative. Specials indistinguishable from main menu. The place can definitely do better especially in view of growing competition.
On the plus side, the menu is reasonably priced and for an afterwork dinner or meeting with a couple of friends, you can't go wrong.
Good place, nice food and good people trying to serve us and make us feeling at home in Paris.
Best value for money at a 1st class restaurant
The restaurant added to its initial cramped bistro style space when it attached the empty space next door. The inside is now spacious with more seating options. There's additional seating outside under an enclosed canopy. The food is still excellent and the service by pleasant masked waiters is efficient. I only wish they would add French-style liver and onions to the menu; otherwise all is delicious. Remember to bring proof of vaccination!
Very positive. Waiter wonderful Very safe envitonment
Excellent as always
