Service was sub par, had to ask for water several times, dirty dishes sat in front of us for way too long. Then when clearing they seem to expect us to help and then piled dishes on top of one another to clear. Had to also ask for our wine several times. Food was cold and way over buttered. Expected more from acclaimed chef.

We were a family of 6 with 2 children ages 9 and 12. Food was delicious. Hamburgers, chicken sandwiches, French toast, and salmon were excellent but the desserts were to die for especially the butterscotch pudding with salted Carmel and Lemon Meringue pie. Highly Recommend

Absolutely phenomenal. The setting is modern but quaint and unimposing and the food was flawless. Try the duck with pumpkin in the fall months. Incredible dish! Service was friendly and attentive. Must go back.

Came to celebrate a promotion and could not have picked a better place for a better dining experience. The food and drinks were incredible. The staff was attentive, knowledgeable, and helpful. The noise level is a little loud but was never unbearable. Will definitely be dining here again

The food was outstanding. We were 4 people all ordering different appetizers and entrees all were very good. Two reasons for the 3 stars only: 1. the noise level made the conversation impossible which made our reunion not as pleasant as we had wished, 2. the prices particularly of the wine by the glass were were very very high.

Hadn't been here in a few years. I do not like the update. The quaint, almost secret, townhouse has been transformed into a run of the mill upper east side decor. Menu now also firmly in the middling Manhattan restaurant territory. What had been superbly executed slightly quirky French food is now kind of ehhhhh.

My boyfriend and I went here for a Saturday night dinner. We have been here a few times before and it’s always amazing. We got the burrata and Saturday special tuna roll for apps. For our entrees, we got the wagyu tenderloin (highly recommend) and salmon. Both meals were executed perfectly. This restaurant is perfect for a romantic date night as it’s in a cute brownstone in the upper east side. It’s upscale but still feels fun and casual at the same time.

Jojo continues to be one of our absolute favorites. The food is extremely good and the service is quite attentive. The menu changes with the seasons and is perfectly executed. This is truly a hidden gem! We brought three friends this time around and they proclaimed that Jojo is their new favorite restaurant in NYC and Westchester (not making this up). We will be back soon.

The food is excellent - Much too loud, music too high, decoration of restaurant is poor. Very dull - we were very disappointed. Sitting next to kitchen with all the servants traffic - too bad because the food was really good.

Went for my Birthday. Have been there several times before.
Was very disappointed considering we love most Jean Georges restaurants-especially Nougatine which we visited last week.
Specifically the portions were beyond tiny.The sorbet for $14 was about 2 tablespoons worth.
They barely acknowledged my birthday sticking a candle in the melting tablespoon of sorbet.
My wife can’t eat tomatoes so she asked if something else was available to garnish the salmon.
The answer was just leave it off-not enough to worry about.
Wish I took photos to add but was a bit SHO Jed at it all
The place was half empty and now I know why
What a shame!!!

I was expecting much more, knowing that this is Jean George restaurant. The food is below average, really disappointed. The place is cute, the service is great, but you are coming to eat, first of all. would not return.
