If you are looking for incredibly fresh and flavorful food, we certainly got that. Our waitress made the selections for our meal, and she nailed each course. Her knowledge of the menu and its preparation added to the experience. Each course complimented the other with flavor and presentation. The rest of the wait staff were friendly and gracious. The food was so good that our intention to discuss business was definitely minimized because our attention was mainly on what the next course was going to be. Thank you very much for the lovely, wonderful dining experience. More

I was so happy to discover that Jojo had finally reopened and invited a colleague for a business dinner. I was disappointed to find that what I thought of as the warm and inviting atmosphere of the old Jojo seems to have disappeared. A lot of hard surfaces have made it a lot noisier. The food is still first rate and service was good, so I will probably keep trying it--it was the best place in my neighbourhood and hope it will continue to be. More

On Monday, January 15, 2018 (Martin Luther King, Jr. Day), my wife, our friend and I had dinner there. It was excellent. It is very quiet there, which we like. The service is excellent, too. The food is very good. The three of us had the crispy artichokes, which is done in a Roman style. I had the filet of gray sole. My wife had the grilled prawns. Our friend had a pasta. He and I had the special dessert of the day. We were there for a long time. Our friend came from Virginia. More

There is not a bad table in the room. All 4tops or more, with space between them!!! So, dining alone or a couple, you are never jammed in between othe guests.

The menu has a nice mix of traditional tapas and lighter-style farm-to-table offerings. They do vegetables particularly well like brussel sprouts with orange peel and fiery eggplant. The service wasn't very good (perhaps because it was a holiday) and we had to ask for our drinks and serving pieces several times before they actually showed up. But I'd still go back. More

Sandro cooks Roman-style Italian cuisine simply and beautifully; nothing trendy or showy, just perfect ingredients impeccably prepared. It was all good, but the fried artichokes, porcetta, and veal were standouts. Plus, some of the best pasta I have ever had, and I am a pasta fiend. This was the second time I have spent my birthday there, and it was a night to remember both times. We were 8 people, we ordered a lot of food to share; there was no problem with that. The service was as nice as could be. The wine was excellent too. I love this restaurant. More

It was superb from beginning to end. The bet and burrata was amazing, so was the raspberry soufflés for dessert. We also had the prime rib and tuna- greT meal all around, and Charles ( Chuck) as the dining captain was outstanding. Also his co captain was so nice and accommodating. It is hard to find the old time elegance and formality like that in nyc or any city, and it def had refined elegance. We will add it to our dinner rotation, since we have been there for other meals in Bemelmans and the brunch, but now will come back often for dinner as well. More

Great neighborhood find. The service was great. The portions are large enough to share. The night we were there a 3 piece band was playing and the restaurant was packed. Noise level for conversation was challenging! More

The choice of soups wasn't great--red cauliflower, two others based on root vegetables, mine was boring. My husband loved the burata and the shrimp. We enjoyed the terimisu and were given another complimentary desert. Wine choices are good but they haven't had the dolcetta d'alba the last two times we've eaten there, and $60 is the minimum red wine price. Usually, this restaurant is quiet but there was some kind of office party--12 or 14 people - next to us. They were quite rowdy! Overall, we like this restaurant but spending $200 for lunch puts it at the top of the expensive scale. More

Absolutely wonderful the Tuna Tartare was the best ever. I went on a Wednesday for the Prime rib and they cut it at your table. Perfect. The sides , potatoes and spinach so delicious. My dessert Pannacotta so smooth and the berry sauce perfect not too sweet. I loved my Red wine by the glass; Cote De Blaye a great suggestion. Everyone was soooo pleasant. I can’t wait to return. Every day they have a special entree. I must , I will try everything. More

A thoroughly professional restaurant, great food and ambiance. Not a single complaint. Will definitely return on a regular basis and would unhesitatingly recommend it to friends. The salad of huitres and endive was unique and the Tajine of lamb shank was delicious. My wife had dover sole which she enjoyed immensely. When next we return, we'll sample other dishes on the interesting menu. More

I was so happy to discover that Jojo had finally reopened and invited a colleague for a business dinner. I was disappointed to find that what I thought of as the warm and inviting atmosphere of the old Jojo seems to have disappeared. A lot of hard surfaces have made it a lot noisier. The food is still first rate and service was good, so I will probably keep trying it--it was the best place in my neighbourhood and hope it will continue to be. More

Discover Upper East Side

Just a few years back, the stately neighborhood near Central Park was mostly stale, white-tablecloth spots with very little to attract the foodie set. Well, times have changed, and the area has a slew of fresh places to experience. Not-too-fancy French brasseries include favorites without the stuffiness, California-inspired fish tacos bring a golden glow to winter afternoons, and creative tavern fare undo the top button. But since this is the UES, there are still high-end sushi institutions. Uptown is still refined in its inimitable way, it’s now just a bit more accessible and vibrant, just like a foie gras mini taco.
