Est. 1991. Jean-Georges' first restaurant, and named after his childhood nickname that his mother would call him, has recently reopened in a duplex townhouse on the Upper East Side, creating a modern and fresh design, yet still maintaining an understated, warm and friendly atmosphere. JoJo is a simple and casual neighborhood friendly restaurant serving a farm to table menu with mostly organic and local ingredients.

From start to finish, the dishes were perfectly incredible. Outstanding!

The service was a bit rushed given we were in the last seating and there were plenty of people in the restaurant.

Excellent food and reasonably priced for the quality. A lot of service staff but took very long to take drink orders and even longer to bring.

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.

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.

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.

This was our first visit to the newly renovated JoJo. They did a fantastic job. It's completely redone, and is light and airy, slightly wider (it's in a town house). The food was excellent; I loved the duck on a bed of wild rice with a candied sweet potato. One friend had the beef, which she loved, and my husband had the lobster. The chicken was delicious, but chicken is just chicken!
Desserts were also spectacular. We'll be back and can't wait for them to open for lunch!

My wife and I came from Boston and ate here on Saturday night for the first time and it was perfect. The menu is simple but with great variety, the service is over the top and the ambiance could not be better in a newly renovated town house. Definitely has the feel of a neighborhood restaurant and not the typical tourist stop. We highly recommend JoJo.

Very quaint and special place in the middle of midtown Manhattan. Food was very fresh and great spices. I lentil soup and duck was fantastic. Staff very friendly ; the dessert pear and cherry crumble was delicious with only natural sweetness.

The new Jojo's is as good (or better than the old). We were extremely content with the warm welcome, professional polish of the staff, excellent menu selection and new decor. One small quibble...please add chick pea fries to the every day menu not just Monday nights.

The change in the decor was over the top odd, more like a fancy diner. The charm of the prior was lost. Loads of help milling around ,to the extent you wondered if some staff had anything to do. However the actual service was only so so. Very limited menu and what we did choose was not a true Vonnerichtin experience. Would not go Bach which is sad as original was one of our favorites and we live just six blocks away.
