Nougatine is the more casual sister of Jean-Georges, with a very lively bar scene at night. The restaurant attracts a mix of celebrities, socialites, and movers and shakers in the business world. Adjacent to the formal Jean-Georges dining room, Nougatine serves the signature and seasonal dishes of Chef Jean-Georges for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, 365 days a year. The menu is more casual than that offered at Jean-Georges but still market driven, utilizing only the freshest and finest ingredients. In addition to providing gorgeous views of Central Park, the newly renovated dining room by Thomas Juul-Hansen features a bustling, immaculate open kitchen. Tones of brown and cream mingle to create an elegant space that is soothing by day and exciting by night. Nougatine offers a prix-fixe lunch menu Monday through Friday from noon to 3 p.m.

Disappointing front-of-the- house service. Poor attitude from maître d after her assistant tried to seat us a table which was clearly uncomfortable (especially for such a supposedly fine restaurant).

Ended up eating at the bar - which our bartender/server, Charlie, made a great experience (he gets 5 stars, the Maitre d gets one) . Food is always very good, as is the wine.

Maitre D needs a refresher course in quality hospitality.

This is a top restaurant in New York. The food is terrific. Huge fan of Jean George restaurants--this one is right there. The tuna tartare is memorable and I cannot wait until I get to taste it again. The service was excellent as is expected at all JG restaurants. Love the room, vibrant yet inviting. Highly recommend!

I recommend it for everything! It is a favorite of ours for lunch or dinner -- everyday or special-occasion dining. I especially love the tuna tartare and anyone who has had it wants to go back again just for the tuna tartare. I also like the kale salad. The room has a nice vibe and the staff from the front desk to the wait staff is very nice.

Food is very tasty. The wine list is extremely over priced (most bottles >$1000). There are several more affordable bottles but they are few and far between. Second time dining here was on a Saturday night (8:30 reservation) to celebrate my husbands birthday. Unfortunately, we were seated next to a family of 6 (4 kids) who were incredibly misbehaved. The entire dinner they were getting up and down from their seats, squeezing past our table almost knocking our food and bottle of wine off of our table. There were many open tables at this time and we should have either been seated elsewhere or moved as it was terribly distracting. Otherwise, the restaurant did bring out a candle with dessert which was a special touch.

When we arrived by cab to learn the restaurant is in a Trump hotel, that almost killed the deal. But, we're glad we stayed and had a most memorable time. Highly recommend the tasting menu and relying on the sommelier.

Our second visit, and eqalled the exceptional food and service we received the first time. Modern, carefully chosen and streamlined decor. Seated immediately at time of reservation, with request for a window table honored. Service was unobtrusive and never rushed. Comfortable, accommodating atmosphere.

I have eaten here several times for dinner, but this was the first brunch. The brunch experience was not pleasant. We were seated next to two large tables with children. In addition to all of the noise that children and toddlers generate, the diners at the tables repeatedly got up to take pictures of themselves, of their food, and of the restaurant. Not only did they bump our table several times, but they impeded service to surrounding tables and our table. At no time did any restaurant staff (including the floor manager) do anything to stop this. Our brunch turned out to be nothing more that an overpriced visit to Chuck E. Cheese’s.

LUNCH. Top notch in every regard. Wonderful server and even better meal. Even for food snobs it’s tough to criticize this place. We were there for the $38 prix fixe and it is bar none among the best deals in the city, especially for high end dining at a more than reasonable price point. If I had a gun to my head, the one knock is that the portions aren’t huge, so if you come with a voracious appetite you may find yourself eating a lot of bread! Quality not quantity.

The butterscotch pudding was amazing. Beyond this dish and the tomato soup, the meal was lackluster and not memorable. Service was over attentive through our first course. After that they made mistakes such as who received which entree, which cutlery we needed, and the waiter disappeared until we had the dessert menus for 30 seconds and wanted our order (seem miffed that we weren't ready). But the kicker was after we ate our dessert, I could not get anyone to our table to ask for the check. We waited over 20 minutes. This was my 2nd visit there and my first visit was superb unlike this dinner. I won't be back.

The overriding aspect of the experience was how rushed it was, as though there was a countdown clock on the table. I assume that is the business model, but it ruined the meal. The food is good but not exceptional, and even the fixed price lunch is overpriced. The room is pleasant enough. The staff worked hard to be pleasant and polite as they rushed us. I had the impression that even they were uncomfortable with the approach, which was not at all subtle. I was afraid to put down my fork, since it brought the waiter rushing to try to take my plate.

In the pick-list above about what occasion the restaurant is good for, I suggest adding "obligatory lunch with someone whose company you don't much enjoy", since it goes by so fast.

Mostly, it was a good experience with the exception of the coffee, which was unpalatable. At our table, regular coffee and decaf both tasted bitter and as if they had been in a pot too long. Another of our guests complained that the decaf espresso was similarly undrinkable. The servers were lovely and accommodating: offered us fresh cups which we declined.

Utterly disappointing! Had the tasting menu with wine pairing. No information what kind of wines were being paired. Would have ordered separately. Total waste of money as the flavor of food was either bland or too strong. No amount of good service is going to make up for poor food at that price.

Nougatine remains a favorite due to the quality of experience and food. Not overly solicitous service but attentive. My salmon tasted a bit mushy, which can indicate that it was previously frozen then thawed too quickly, but I mentioned it to the waiter and he offered to have another piece prepared. I said that it wasn’t necessary. He later comped is a dessert, which was nice.
