Superb food! The most tender charred octopus I've ever had, and the most flavorful. Duck entrée exquisite: slices of duck breast cooked to perfection and shredded duck confit encased in a flaky triangle of pastry. Can't wait to go back when I'm in the area again.

My brunch companion and I love JoJo. We had the prix fixe selections--they were terrific, as were the cocktails and espressos. The service was also terrific. I'm definitely going back.

Have been going to JoJo for a number of years. It is always excellent. The menu does not change often but the preparations of the dishes does change. So a dish like veal Milanese changes every so often. On this occasion we started with the tomato soup and tuna roll. Main courses were lobster and veal Milanese. We shared the warm chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream. Our wine was a Vermentino. Everything excellent. Service and ambiance also excellent. Highly recommended

The food was fair to good. The service was poor. We were told that the restaurant was not yet open and to wait outside. When no one came to retrieve us and we walked inside, a number of tables were already full!! And then the service during the meal way way too slow.

JoJo restaurant was a true delight. Perfect for a cosy meal, serving comfort food, during autumnal or winter months. The ambiance is the same, - intimate and snug. The staff are friendly and efficient, without being over enthusiastic. There is plenty of choice on the menu - poultry, meat, fish and vegetarian. Would definitely go back again.

Jean George always creates amazing food. Our meals were great.

The atmosphere, however, is upper east side old money. The dining space is old money stuffy. Most of the other diners were clearly older. Guessing the average age is pushing 70. They were the kind of guys who wear their plaid country club sport jackets and talk way too loud about how their stocks are doing or how finding good domestic help is sooooo difficult. (True examples from the times we were there.)

We were looking to see where JoJo's kept their defibrillator in case one of diners fell over dead.

Go for the food and ignore the stuffiness if you can...

We had a very nice dinner at JoJo's after attending an interview with Ruth Bader Ginsburg at Temple Emanuel Skirball. We shared two appetizers, both which were delicious. For a main course, we shared the halibut, which unfortunately was a little over cooked. For dessert, we shared profiteroles, which were very good.

Haven't been to Jojo in a number of years so I wasn't sure what to expect. Not inexpensive but service was top notch and food was fabulous. Very relaxing and unrushed and would definitely be on my list for a return visit.

We took our Grand daughter there for dinner for her birthday. They gave us the table we prefer in the front room. The service was professional and friendly. I enjoyed the duck for the first time; our granddaughter enjoyed the kale salad and salmon. The food is always above average here.

Jo-Jo has been around since the early 90's and Jean-Georges Vongerichten's cuisine still wows. Whether it is new dishes or some of the old faves from the 90's (such as the warm Valrhona chocolate cake) are sure to please. The decor may be a little time-worn but the restaurant is closing soon for a make-over of both its' decor and menu. I can't wait to go back and see what new surprises Jean-Georges has in store for his diners!

Lovely anniversary lunch! We did the prefix, which was a great value. The menu was great. All the dishes were extremely well prepared. The wine by the glass was great and not overly expensive . Service was good. The one criticism I had was that the restrooms needed renovation.

Amazing food and amazing service. Our server was incredible and thoughtful going off menu for cocktails and bringing a sample of the dish we didn't have room for but we're interested in. Wow. They'd be right to put a door on the kitchen. Prep cooks in the dining room parading food storage containers... well.. unnecessary. We'll be back!
