    Very high end. Ask for the vegan tasting menu. Out of this world.

    Jean Georges Vongerichten is one of the top culinary talents of our time, but it was not his scallops with carmelized cauliflower or his sweetbreads dusted with mango powder that first impressed me. . .

    I haven’t seen my old boyfriend in 40 years. Where should we have lunch? - Since 70 is the new 50, you've become a savvy New York lady that you are. Still, it doesn’t hurt to take advantage of the cosmetic light in a side-by-side booth at this place.

    Jean-Georges has consistently earned top honors from critics including Michelin and The New York Times since it first opened in 1997.

    The game can always be played at a higher level. That is the challenge for any restaurant that wants to shine among the striving competition. And Jean-Georges does shine.

    Cannot praise the veal or tuna ribbon enough. If you are on a budget go for the prix fixe lunch!

    Jean-Georges takes the classics and tosses in modern twists. If it is your first time, go for the 4 course dinner!

    We went to this place to have lunch. The interior is light and very pleasant. The food was hit and miss. Crab salad as a starter and black sea bass as the main were excellent! The urchin and gulf shrimp were OK, shrimps have a strange aftertaste as if they were washed in chlorine or something. Crusted salmon with miso-yuzu broth was too plain for me, the tomatoes could do with some salt or pickled or some marinade to create an extra flavour. The service was all right but not personal, some of the staff were a bit tense (probably being new). Overall a nice experience but a bit expensive for what it is.

    Everything was right at the level you expect it to be, super friendly and attentive service, gorgeous dining room, stunning food. The food is simply exquisite, as in the ingredients might be very familiar but the chef finds a way to treat in a surprising way everytime. An amazing lunch and great place to spend the few rainy hours that day!

    Celebrated my Father's birthday yesterday evening and had a wonderful time. Our captain Destiny along with the entire service staff were hospitable and professional throughout the evening. Food was inspired and delicious. Thank you for such a memorable experience!

    We had high expectations but sadly the food was all a bit hit and miss....the squab was epic...but the beef dish was one dimensional....the scallops were so so....and the baked oysters...well I guess my fault...I should know not to mess with the pure taste of oyster...but the oyster flavour was completely swamped by the crispy topping. The service was excellent.....but unlikely I would return as I expect to be wowed by the food in a 3 star establishment

    Beautiful dining room...clean, crisp linens, interesting table layouts and a fabulous chandelier. All staff are smartly dressed with muted golden tones, very chic. The restaurant adjoins the more lively brasserie. Service is effiecient, maybe a touch on the mechanical side. The American sommelier is very helpful and the champagne and wine choices were a hit. They have delicious Sauternes also. We enjoyed the food, with the special addition of a seasonal truffle pasta. This was really a delight. The mushroom salad was delicious..the pine nut sauce is unbeatable. A fresh and summery dish. The lamb chops were a good choice and very tasty even without the mint yoghurt. A nice selection of desserts based on themes. We tried the chocolate and the stone fruit. A lovely place for a special lunch or dinner.

    Firstly, this is an amazing restaurant, we went for dinner with my friend, who is visiting from Vancouver. All the dishes has its own fused flavor, absolutely delicacy dishes. With very clear explanations which also adds to the amazing experience, we booked our table online about two weeks ago, but everything was amazing, the experience we had there is phenomenal :) Secondly, I strongly recommend the Jean-Georges' menu, tasty fusion style French plate, and you will remember the taste for a long while :D here are some pictures of the Jean-Georges' Menu

    We came for lunch and tried several of the dishes between the 4 of us. First we had to squeeze the kids into long pens on a hot August day (at least the handicapped toilet provided some place to change). Afterwards we hoped we would immerse into the magic of a 3 star restaurant but the overall feel is more of a fancy, high-end cafeteria (somehow it reminded me of Auberge de l'Ill). Some of the dishes were quite inventive, especially the Madai Sashimi and the crispy Sweetbreads were my favorites. One could see a signature with quite some Asian influences mingling with the Alsatian / French home of Gean George's cuisine. The main dishes did not fulfill the promise of some of the entrees and the desserts were a little uninspired. Overall you pay for what you get. Most of the dishes where in 2 star territory and some deserved less. I was not really disappointed, but this restaurant is by far not on the same level as EMP (for creativity and ambiance), Le Bernardin (pure quality of seafood) or Chef's Table at Brooklyn Fare. One good point at the end. It's within the Trump Tower but it does not belong to his hotel ;-)

    My world-traveller friend commented at the end of our meal that she will never have a lunch like this again. We were celebrating our son's 25th birthday who loves French culture and food and works at a nearby high-end restaurant. The food was beautiful - and tasty. Nothing on the plate seemed superflouous. Our server did not reflect the care and elegance of the food and room. She got my husband's order wrong, and was brisque to the point of indifference throughout service. She was the only blimp in an otherwise delightful, delicious and elegant meal.

    Every time we come to the City, we try to eat at Jean-Georges. Over the years the restaurant has maintained a very high level of service and food quality. This time was no exception. We tried the Zucca pasta, the flounder and the lobster burger. All three were perfectly cooked, beautifully plated and served with quiet professionalism. Our waitress, Tatianna, was always helpful without being intrusive, and she exemplifies the quality of staff that Jean-Georges employs. We can't wait to come back.

    I worked in NYC for about 15 years and not infrequently ate in 4 star NYT restaurants and other top restaurants. I have also eaten in other 3 star Michelin Guide restaurants here and abroad. I even worked for a summer in a 2 star now 3 star Michelin Guide restaurant. Whether it was in the former Vong or the French Bistro, for me, the cooking style of Jean Georges Vongerichten stood out by far. So I decided to celebrate my birthday at Jean Georges Restaurant. Michelin considers a 3 star restaurant worth a detour. The experience at Jean Georges is just that, an "experience", not just a meal. In an ethereal, light, airy, atypically spacious, for NYC.dining room, it is difficult to find words to describe the intricate and artistically beautiful dishes prepared by some of the most skilled chefs in the country. From the awe-inspiring amuse-bouches compliments of the chef to two different fish dishes inspired by classical French Haute cuisine but improved to our taste by using healthful vegetable reductions rather than lots of cream and butter and subtle Asian inspired flavors with an intellectually impressive blending of tastes and textures. The wonderfully artisanal bread selection including a sourdough bread reminiscent of Poilane, arguably the most famous bakery in Paris and the eye and palate surprising desert marvels, the experience continued on and on. I was presented with a superb chocolate cake with a surprise chocolate ball in the center with berry syrup and a candle for my birthday. Finally, with after dinner coffee, we were given a selection of what the French call friandises, little pastry/candies to cap the experience. There was a minor hiccup in the wine service that was handled as expected but might not have happened in France with much more formal strict practices. Nothing detracted, however, from the awe-inspiring experience.

    A great week in new york with our kids - i wanted to have a diner with my wife in a great restaurant- you read a lot of things about Jean Georges- and i have to say i was a bit curious. Except the fact that they tried to give us a table just at the entrance that we managed to change all the rest was top- restaurant was full but we had almost a maitre d hotel for us- every dish was fantastic - price is high but absolutely ok in comparison with europe or asia for same quality- and what is rhe price for a fantastic evening ????

    My husband & I went here Thursday night in August. We ordered with the summer tasting menu & it was amazing. The food was not molecular gastronomy or uber adventurous but very very very well done & delicious. I was also very surprised at the size of the dishes as they were larger than I expected. Having done many tasting menus at foodie restaurants, I expected smaller portions. Expect to leave very full. The more casual restaurant outside also looked fun and we'll try that next time. If you're looking for more traditional extremely well prepared cuisine this is a real treat.

    We celebrated our anniversary here and had the summer tasting menu. My whiskey fizz was perfect. The best dish was the corn ravioli. It was really the best corn dish we've ever had. The halibut and lamb were fantastic too but it was all too much for my wife. Her least favorite dish was the halibut. If you don't like cherry then you should pass on the summer tasting menu because it is a tribute to cherries. We will be back for our special events.

    Some background: (Or you can skip and go straight to the review of food in below) So I went to Jean Georges during restaurant week and didn't realized that they only have certain hours. And I reserved directly via their website so was unaware that if you tried to reserved through actual nyc restaurant week - there would be no time available. I think they should have made that clear somewhere. But anyway, since my friend and I already dressed up and made reservation (and JG charges for no shows) we thought we would splurge because we don't do this often and we probably won't eat at such fine dinning in a while. Overall: 3/5 Impression: Not too impressed. decoration and staff was wonderful. But food? Was not as exciting or amazing as I expected it would be. Also - side note for those who don't go to fine dinning often. Note: just get ice water. It's free. Fuji water - made the mistake of getting still in a bottle. At first I was like how price can it be? Well, they charge $10 for this. And I honestly thought at most they would charge $5. So I'm a bit blown away. This is not worth the marked up price - fine dinning or not. 2017 Summer Tasting Menu:($168) The following three items were small dishes that came together - (complimentary) Strawberry ganache- very good. Dill pureed on cucumber - nice and fresh. Popper - nothing special. Poached egg with caviar and whipped yogurt and herb So good! I love this and the toasted bread it came with. The saltiness of the caviar blend really well with the yogurt. And the buttery bread works well with the egg and herbs. Madai Sashimi with pastel radishes and nasturtium vinaigrette Was ok. Sashimi was good. Nice and smooth. But the radish and vinaigrette was a bad pairing. Both was too bitter for this dish and it overpowers the soft delicate sashimi a bit. Corn Ravioli and cherry tomato in Basil Fondue This was the best pairing in taste. The sweet corn works beautifully in balance to the sour basil fondue and the tomato gives it just the right about of tange. Halibut with hon shimeji mushroom and lemongrass consomme Felt that this needs to take the halibut out a minute or two earlier. Was a bit too chewy from being cooked too long. Also need to hold back a little bit of the lemongrass as there was nothing to balance out the sourness. Spiced Lamb chop with cucumber yogurt and fried onion I think the lamb should not be medium well. Just because it doesn't really bring out the spice since it's not cooked very much at all. Plus, it made it hard to chew so I had to add the cucumber yogurt which then overpowers the lamb. Cherry Dessert Tasting The chocolate meringue was very good. However, the cherry sorbet was too sour to be paired with the overly soft tendered cherry. Since the cherry flavor is very strong- it needed a soft hint of sweetness to compliment. Chocolate as the sweet offset was too heavy. Complimentary sweets for closing - Marshmallow - so airy and soft! Candied blood oranges - ok. a bit too sweet for me Assort of chocolate - very good.
