Very pretty place. Butternut squash soup very good. Salads good, interesting dressings. Sandwiches were poor, very surprising how poor. Rolls not fresh, Chicken rubbery, aioli overpowering. French fries salty to the point of inedible. Shrimp sandwich was cold chopped shrimp w/ very little flavor. Expected a lot more

Excellent restaurant in a low key location on 64th street. Beautiful understated elegance and refined service delivers excellent food for a good value. Menu is short but very nice, look for their published daily specials of each day for even better choices. We will make it a regular when we are in the area.

さすがジャンジョルジュと言った感じで美味しい。コストパフォーマンスも非常によく頻繁に通いたいお店です。今回は夜伺ったのでムーディーな感じでしたが、昼に伺うとまた雰囲気違いそうです。ホットチョコレートがなかったのがちょっと残念ですがNYCでいちばん好きなお店かもしれません。

Impeccable service and great food in a beautiful townhouse setting. We enjoyed a thanksgiving meal— they had run out of the preferred desert- and the seating is tight- but I’d still go back.

My young adult son and I went to JoJo’s for thanksgiving dinner when our more traditional plans didn’t work out. Neither of us had been there before. What a delight!
Pre fix menu was very creative: he has the butternut squash soup, which he loved and I had a lovely broccoli and kale salad. I had lobster and he had beef. Small, beautiful and fantastically tasty, both. Dessert was apple pie and pecan pie, both served with a scoop of exceptional sorbets, both fantastic. My sole complaint was that my coffee was only like warm.
Service was excellent: friendly, but not in overly familiar, napkins were folded when one of us when to the rest room, crumbs were swept away, service was warm, swift, efficient and helpful.
The two floors of the small restaurant are creatively designed. Each little area seems to be different from the other, contemporary, yet warm and restful. Lightening very nice and flattering. It all felt beautiful to me. Noise level moderate, certain areas quieter than others, but this is New York. Good place for a first (and many more!) date.
Overall, very happy to have found this gem. Such a pleasant place, from the greeter to the coat check to the bus person. Food excellent. I will return
Thank you for a lovely thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving Dinner- rather ordinary...turkey, steak, lobster with fries, sea bass... prix fixe menu ... ending up costing $900 for a family of 5!!!
Service was lackadaisical ...ambience was more like a breakfast nook...

We had Brunch at JoJo's this past Sunday. It had been a while since we had been there. We live in Massachusetts. The restaurant has been remodeled and modernized. It needed it and it was done very tastefully. It did seem louder than I remembered it, but frankly, who cares. You don't go to JoJo's for the esthetics or the ambiance. You go to JoJo for the food. It takes a lot for a restaurant to impress me. I typically eat to live. Foodies live to eat. The food at JoJo is so sublime that it actually makes me want to live to go there again.

I love JoJo! The new look is fantastic and quality of food is incredible. One thing: the service, while extremely friendly and engaging, lacked a bit in ability to describe the menu. For example, when asked about the shrimp burger we were told it was “ground up shrimp and ‘sorta different’”. In fact, it was delicious - spiced perfectly and actually a butterflied piece of shrimp in the form of a burger. I make mention of this only by way of feedback. The team was wonderful from beginning until end and we thoroughly enjoyed the meal.
