If you didn't know you were in the city you would think you were in a neighborhood bistro in Montmarte. Not fancy decor but truly french bistro style. Live down the street and visit here once or twice a month. Food and service are excellent, Escargots served the traditional way in the shell. Unpretentious - just good food and service at very reasonable price

Jean-Claude is an unassuming and unpretentious, but very authentic French bistro. The decor is plain and the space is small, but the food is excellent and the service attentive. When I'm at Jean-Claude, I really feel like I'm at one of those excellent neighborhood restaurants that are so common in Paris, France. This is not a restaurant to go to if you are interested in seeing "celebrities," or if you want to make your mark on the "scene," or if you value a restaurant's interior design over its cooking. However, it is a restaurant to go to if you want tp enjoy satisfying bistro fare and wines at a very reasonable price. In short, it's the kind of restaurant that NYC could use more of. I've been here multiple times and thoroughly enjoyed each visit.

I love this place. Just left dinner here this evening and remember how every time I've been I feel as though I'm traveling back in time to when small business were in love with their customers! Atmosphere is beautiful with lovely flattering lighting. The escargot is delicious. I liked the cod fish tonight. Enjoy!

We called to see if there was a free table at 7:30 and were welcomed. Lovely atmosphere and fairly quiet until the crowds starting filling the place and lining up at the door around 8:30. The escargots and hangar steak were delicious. My husband enjoyed the skate, but I thought it couldn't compare to the best skate I've ever had, which was at Balthazar. And as for the reviewer who didn't like the desserts, he should have tried the tarte Tatin...comme en France. Lovely service, too.

Come here for date night with your wife. Really good food and atmosphere. The people who work here seem to be all French. Nice little standing room only bar for those who get there a little early. My wife and split an appetizer. We each had a main course and 2 glasses of wine each. The meal was $87 before tip. My wife and I had a wonderful time.

Excellent atmosphere and the hanger steak was unbelievable! I live in the neighborhood and plan to go back often.

Just enjoyed a great meal here last weekend. I had the steak frites, and my husband had the chicken paillard. Really nice service, and we felt it was a good value. Just happened to stumble across this place while shopping in the neighborhood. Felt like we wre back in Paris! My only con would be that the temperature was a bit cool inside, but I was willing to overlook. They also forgot to bring out a glass of wine, but graciously comped us a glass when we pointed out the error.
