Fabulous dinner. We had the shrimp salad with warm champagne sauce. Amazing!!! The desserts were also fabulous!
Their renovation makes the place look large , light, and yet warm. I really am happy their open again.

Pretentious, phony. Uppity wait staff. Prices should be under obscenity law: wines by the SMALLEST glass starting start at $12, going as far up as $23 for Gruner Veltliner, which sells for $14 for a bottle online.

Where is the old Jojo with French touches in furniture, ambiance and menu??? Jojo is now an austere, Ikea influenced space, with zero ambiance. There is nothing French here. Wagyu beef?

The Duck breast was good, faintly reminiscent of the old Jojo.

Disappointing NYE meal. The four course meal was rushed (done in under an hour). The first two course- Hamachi crudo and then a black bass with mushrooms was tasteless. The best dish was a rack of lamb but came out so quickly after the second course that I felt too full to enjoy. I wasn't overwhelm by the décor although I didn't see the second floor. The wait staff while very pleasant was inexperience. I have dined here in the past but this is the first time since the renovation and I was extremely underwhelmed.

The renovation is stunning--you'd never recognize it. From an immediate, initial warm welcome until getting our coats to leave, hospitality (except for one guy who skulked around all night) was gracious and sincere. Our server, Alex, was attentive but not intrusive, skilled at making recommendations, and made for a most enjoyable evening. He had the perfect balance of friendliness without seeming false. The food, of course, was the star. We'd order everything all over again on a next visit--and hope that visit will come soon!

Love the new look. The food also has a new and lighter feel. Fantastic warm seafood salad. Attentive (occasionally too much) service. Loved it!

Miss the old decor but like the more casual personality. Food excellent. Service was great but not too stuffy. Love that you don't have to shout above others or loud music - rare these days. Looking forward to returning.
