Duck breast was very fatty but tasty. Steak frites was good but not exceptional. Just serve wine no cocktails.

The meal was excellent and the night was great until the server rudely would not accept my OpenTable dining reward.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
