I recently went to both Jean Georges and its sister restaurant Nougatine. Jean Georges food was excellent, the service was excellent, the Maitre D was pleasant, overall we really enjoyed the experience. One dish I would particularly recommend on the current menu is the crab starter, from the texture we could tell it was really fresh (I believe most of... More

Less is more with this restaurant. The welcoming at the reception area was not particularly friendly but admittedly it was busy. The dining area is bright and quite full (Valentines day). There was a lot of wait staff and I counted 13 at one time in the room, there were around 25 tables. We decided on the lunch tasting menu.... More

I must admit, I was disappointed. Given the stellar reviews and reputation I expected to be amazed. Service was very good, menu was interesting, but I was not left with a burning desire to return.

As it should be at these prices. But Jean Georges more than lived up to its ratings and reputation. The staff was very gracious about making slight dish modifications. Rory, the sommelier was outstanding, recommending unusual bottles for every course. Service was exquisite. A wonderful evening for four people with discerning palates.

We ate at this restaurant and we were skeptical of its hype, but it exceeded our expectations! The fare was scrumptious, beautifully presented, with high caliber service and just a great ambiance. The 3 star Michelin rating is well deserved and the prices were not out of line for NYC (no gouging). The only thing I was shocked by was... More

This is the place of significant hype but I had a mixed feeling. I was not impressed by a lobster - i felt for the price it should have been much better! The menu was inventive but some dishes did not work out for our party, while some were quite outstanding. The service was uneven and at times confusing, even... More

What is not to like about this place... simply stunning and so elegant. It was fun to look at everyone else's food before ours arrived simply because of their masterfully artistic presentations. My friend and I had never been here before so we decided to go with their lunch special which included an appetizer, entrée and dessert for under $30.... More

The great asset of this restaurant is that it is quiet, allowing a good conversation over the table. This is getting rare these days in NY, and highly welcome. The food was so-so. The main dish was a tenderloin of the type that is getting too common these days, with subdued taste, typical for beef that has been bred to... More

My friend and I selected this restaurant to celebrate a birthday. We selected the tasting menu with wine pairings to maximize the experience. We felt special the whole time we went there through impeccable individual attention from waiting staff and the chef made a special dessert for my birthday. In addition to superb food and wine we sat in elegant... More

Description
Jean-Georges opened in 1997 to critical acclaim. The jewel of Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s empire, the restaurant offers the very best in fine dining. Consistently awarded four stars by the New York Times and three Michelin stars, Jean-Georges presents exquisitely crafted dishes blending French, American, and Asian influences. The local farmer’s market is the driving force behind the seasonal, ever-changing menu. Chef Jean-Georges is a master at maintaining the essence of ingredients while using them inventively to produce the best flavor. Jean-Georges’ chic and intimate dining room was redesigned by Thomas Juul-Hansen, with striking lighting by L’Observatoire. Impeccable service, tableside preparations, and floor-to-ceiling windows with stunning views of Central Park and Columbus Circle all contribute to an unforgettable dining experience. Jean-Georges offers a three-course prix-fixe menu and two six-course tasting menus: a traditional tasting of the chef’s signature dishes, and a seasonal tasting featuring fresh market ingredients. The prix-fixe and tasting menus are available Monday through Sunday for dinner. The restaurant also offers a two-course lunch menu for a terrific value. Gentleman are required to wear a jacket. No jeans, sweatshirts or sneakers allowed. Tie is not required.

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
