We loved the Steak Frites and the Hanger Steak (the sauce was delicious!). Great ambiance, wine, and the staff / service were helpful and cheerful. We had a wonderful evening.
Real French bistro with reasonably priced and well chosen wine list.
It's a vanishing breed and to be cherished.
We showed up at 5pm on a Friday and had the restaurant all to ourselves. The chef prepared French bistro food -- steamed mussels in white wine with frites, lamb with a red wine reduction -- and it was very good. The menu and wine list are both short, but the quality is there.
The best duck I have ever had...so incredibly tender and delicious.
Yummy food, very good service and lively atmosphere. I will definitely be back.
average food. warm service. charming space. Was expecting much more.
Great traditional and simple French restaurant. We had the mussels, which come in a very well prepared traditional white wine sauce. Also had the Snapper, which was a daily special, and was excellent too.
The food is excellent
Duck breast was very fatty but tasty. Steak frites was good but not exceptional. Just serve wine no cocktails.
Favorite spot in the neighborhood everyone that works there is great and the food never disappoints
The meal was excellent and the night was great until the server rudely would not accept my OpenTable dining reward.
Sweet local bistro. Like France with non surely waiters.
All was lovely. Friend's duck was a little dry, she said.
Looking forward to returning
We eat here often and never have had a bad meal. The lamb was excellent and as always,the beet salad was fresh and delicious.
Wonderful food. Great service
Our host, one of the restaurant's partners, was so attentive that on hearing our conversation he delivered two glasses of chilled Pino Grigio. He then took our order and brought us a delicious omelet with pommes frites and my favorite, salmon over spinach cooked with mushrooms. We thoroughly enjoyed our conversation, pleased we could hear each other just as others were also enjoying their luncheon companions, food, and beverages. My only wish was that the salmon, requested as medium, had arrived that way. It was well done. Having dined at this restaurant with my husband, with my brother, and with friends, I will return for another pleasant, tasty lunch or dinner.
Never disappointed. I have been eating at Jean Claude ever since they were first in Soho
Intimate French bistro, delicious food, attentive service, reasonable prices. Will definitely return.
Jean Claude is our favorite neighborhood and French restaurant. The food (everything on the menu) is delicious. They need to offer the bouillabaisse more often as a special. The wines are moderately priced and very good. You can get whole bottles or just carafes or by the glass. My favorite is the duck breast. The bread pudding should be outlawed. I have requested that it not even appear in the vicinity of our table....I have no willpower. The luncheon menu is excellent and it is quieter during the day. It would be very good for a business or leisurely lunch with friends.
Amazing - the food is incredible and the owners/managers are very attentive. Highly recommend!
Excellent as always. Fine food, an east side find. Great service
As always at Jean Claude 2 I enjoyed my dining experience. I was surprised however to receive an email from Open Table telling me that I had not arrived for my reservation - when in fact I was at dinner at 8pm. I can provide the receipt of necessary. Disappointed that I have to spend time addressing this.
Food was disappointing. The vegetables were burned and the steak was clearly revived from the freezer. The duck was not moist and sweet, though it was properly cooked. The vegetables with the duck were soggy and dull.
solid consistent neighborhood bistro. could be in Paris
Always a pleasure to bring friends and family for classic French bistro with great service staff and proven to be a neighborhood gem for Mussels, the daily specials and alwsys a warm bowl of bubbly onion soup with a topper of chocolate mousse or creme brûlée
Pleasant, small, friendly
Food presentation was attractive., but could have been warmer...
wonderfully authentic French bistro. One of our favorites on the upper east side.
Best bet...steak frites. Moderate dinner and wine prices. Friendly maitre d and service.
Amazing in every way
Perfect French restaurant- great service , good sized portions, tasty food all at a great price
Good food at fair prices. Will definitely recommend
excellent food and service. nice atmosphere. Friendly staff
Always good, always consistent. Good unobtrusive service too. Not show-off, just good food.
Menu was full of potential but the breast of duck I ordered cooked medium was too overdone plus the bed of whatever it was on was unappetizing and did nothing to enhance the flavor of the duck. Beet salad appetizer was too heavy on the raw garlic and I'm a garlic lover. Too pungent and masked the flavor of the cubed beets and shredded endive. Decor and atmosphere was quite Parisian and pleasant but the food not memorable. Not convinced I will return.
We have been going to Jean Claude 2 for a number of years since it opened. The food is consistently great, and we love professional see use and very friendly atmosphere.
Excelente valor por lo que recibes. Comida bien cocinada. Muy caliente el salon sí.
Very friendly restaurant with great service and very good food.
Food is always excellent! A pleasure to return there, time after time.
Always wonderful, and the food is delicious and the ambiance like a little bit of Paris.
