Probably the best dining experience I have ever had. Amazing service to go along with fantastic food. I was worried that I the service would be lacking since I am younger but it was no problem at all.

Food was fresh but preparation was mediocre. They were also difficult regarding a gluten allergy at the table. The waiter kept saying, "they can make it without gluten but it won't taste good." this left Very Few options. Also the sweetbreads entree was completely inedible. The mens bathroom was completely atrocious, like it hadn't been cleaned in days. A "best of" dessert plate included 4 items, one of which was fresh fruit. For these prices I expect more than fresh cut apple and orange for my dessert. The other 3 desserts weren't even worth eating. Jean George wasn't at the restaurant that night. We ate at Nougatine a few months prior and jean George was there and the food was phenomenal. Save your money.

It was my first visit at this restaurant and on the way out, I made reservations for the following week. It is the best meal I've had in the city bar none. The food was amazing, the service impecable, the atmosphere was perfect so who cares that our lunch bill was $160, it was worth it, every penny of it. Deserts are incredible and a must have. Plus they give you complimentary chocolates and pre-appetiser so this one meal was really enough for me for the whole day, too much actually. And the chef Jean Georges even breezed through the dining room on a couple of occasions, it was an honor. Do you realize he still prepares this unbelievable food every day himself?! I am not sure any of the top chefs still do that but he does and you taste it in every bite. What an incredible place, can't wait for my lunch next week!!

I thought I had to be wrong or sensitive, but the service at JG is definitely not what it used to be. Still like the food, but doubt I will go back.

have been coming here many times for lunch and ndinner. I always found the food outstanding and the service equal to the food. I enthusiastically recommended it to friends. A recent lunch, however, was a real disappointment. Although the food was as good as ever, the service was not. I was with my friend and we had invited a guest who was never there before. The waiter did not explain the menu, they brought us the wrong drinks and the wine I had requested with the second course was brought out to be served while we were still on our drinks and the first course. And all this with attitude and indifference. As much as I like the food at Jean Georges, I will probably not return.

My review: pretty darn average meal (except for the company at my table of course :) at a restaurant I previously considered to be timeless. They do have one of the better lunch special prix fixe deals in midtown. And I have eaten everywhere. But having lunch to celebrate a family member's birthday and JG not being able to properly cook a burger, twice, is not acceptable. And messing up a dessert is further annoying. At least they comp'd one meal.

We went to Jean Georges last night to celebrate a special occasion and had a fabulous experience. The staff were attentive without being too fussy and the food was truly exceptional. As an all round dining experience it is easily one of the best in New York. When you then combine the quality of the food and the level of service with the setting and atmosphere it doesn't take a genius to see why this place gets such rave reviews. Thank you to all for an unforgettable evening.
