The recently reopened and remodeled JoJo is really good. Excellent food and drinks and wine. Reasonably priced UES bistro.
Great food - very nice setting. The duck was spectacular!
I don’t normally leave reviews but this place was sorely needed in the midtown east/UES area. Great food, excellent value and very attentive service. Reasonably priced wine list to boot. Really an all around great dinner spot.
For apps: I recommend the kale broccoli and six minute egg salad. A very light salad with good balance. The peekytoe dumplings are okay - there is some citrus sweet in it which doesn’t quite go perfectly with the savory of the dumpling.
For entrees: get the tenderloin. Don’t think twice. It was perfectly cooked at medium rare and comes with a spicy orange sauce on the side. An excellent dish. If you’re into fish, the black sea bass was flavorful and well cooked.
Dessert: let me preface it with I really don’t like carrot cake. It usually has too much ginger or too much shredded carrots. This carrot cake was perfectly balanced.
First time here after the renovation. Food and service was excellent
Food and service was amazing. Front staff totally unaccommodating. Asked to be sat a corner table and was denied. No one sat there our entire meal. Asked front
Staff on the way out why he did not seat us there and his response was we had a cancellation. If they had a cancellation why then did they not move us? Or tell us on the way out. Complete careless attitude typical of Jean Georges front staff.
The food is so delicious yet light. I feel like I'm eating something really special without feeling like there is a pound of butter in it.
Fabulous loved it
Jojo is excellent. The newly renovated space is beautiful, clean and modern. The food is outstanding. Service is professional and warm. Highly recommended!
Everything at JoJo was spectacular. Great service, good wine selection, and food that was out of this world. We had a citrus salad, warm seafood salad, duck, salmon, and chicken dishes and all were made to perfection. Don't let the relatively few choices on the mains menu set you off- they are all good and very creative. New decor since renovations is lovely, and makes for a very relaxing and comfortable dining experience. Though we live across the park on the west side, we plan to return to JoJo as frequently as budget allows. Not cheap but certainly great value for money!!
The food and service were lovely, but our date night was tarnished by a very loud woman at the next table — 18 inches away. It was impossible not to have to hear her every word and made our own conversation challenging.
