My boyfriend chose Jean Georges for our Anniversary and we both were so satisified with it. It certainly lived up to its expectations. Every staff greeted us as we walked to our table. We had the Class Tasting Menu (7-courses) and it was absolutely darling! After the dessert tasting, our waiter surprised us with with candles and extra desserts with a 'Happy Anniversary' sign on the plate. My bf told them it was our anniversary when he made the reservations. He reserved a month in advance. Oh! And we were in the back room and we got the private booths! So we sat side by side to each other. Just amazing... So next time when you have a spent event going on, put your best dress on and choose Jean Georges! =)

I had a wonderful dinner here. It was a bit later as we did not arrive here until about 10pm. So there was no wait for a table which was nice. As soon as we arrived, we were greeted by a friendly hostess and were sat at a great table by a window. I ordered the steak and it was cooked perfectly to my specification. The potatoes that accompanied it were to die for as well. Each item that was on the plate complimented the next thing. It was like an explosion in my mouth every time I took a bite. I was very impressed with this place and I feel that the price was fair for the service and food that I received. I will definitely return.

JG has been on the "to do" list for a while but we've had so much success with other NYC restauratns that we never found the time to go until we had something to do in the neighborhood. After Friday dinner I'm kicking myself for having waited so long. JG is the total package, atmosphere, service, and food food food. Sublime tastes were the rule and they were executed flawlessly. Portions were exceptional. Dessert makes you wish you could take a breather just so you could try them all. Not inexpensive by any means but incredible value for your money. Only weakness is the restrooms.

How can this not get 5 out of 5 stars? We had the most divine, creative, fantastic, and imaginative meal here when we were lucky enough to have been given a $250 gift certificate for our wedding. Wow! From the outset, the staff was accommodating. But the small plates themselves astounded us with their creativity, presentation, and medley of flavors. I HIGHLY recommend the Jean Georges experience, if you can afford it. If not, visit their bistro which is more casual. It will be long remembered and hopefully we will be fortunate enough to return.

My husband and I enjoyed a memorable and delicious birthday dinner. We were the youngest ones there, as the rest of the diners were probably retired. We sat facing the room in a little booth which provided a sense of privacy and allowed for observing the floor. The service was impeccable, discrete, although many of the waiters had a strong accent making it difficult to understand the description of the foods they were serving. The dinner opened with a complementary trio - oyster (not a fan although it slide down your throat), pear soup/cider (nicely spiced) and a puffy warm ball infused with mushroom - a bit dry. The three course pre-fix began with crab dumplings- dough was a bit chewy, but the meat soft, melting in your mouth ( I thought only ice cream and chocolate could have that description), Next, I had the char which was perfectly moist and delicate accompanied by onions, asparagus and mushrooms. Following was another fish dish with cherry tomatoes, and a pistachio crust in a flavorful broth. It was even better than the first fish. The pairings between the fish, spices and vegetables exemplifies the creativity of the chef and sentisizes the palate to combinations you never dreamed of being complementary. The bread was a disappointment as there were only two varieties to choose from - rye and french roll. The light, creamy butter was better matched with the french, crispy roll as the rye bread overpowered the butter. Apparently, for lunch they have more varieties to choose from. The dessert was disappointing too. There was a choice of 4 themes- chocolate, strawberry, cherry and autumn to choose from. Before you were 4 varieties of that theme in solid, liquid or frozen form, however out of the four, I only liked the classical chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream and i'm pretty easy to please with sweets (my theme of choice was chocolate), The bonus surprise was a birthday dessert complimentary of the chef which was a passion fruit tart with a cold frosting...there was a nice difference of temperature in the mouth since it was cold, refreshing from the citrus fruits, soft and melting too. The night ended with a petite four of chocolates, marshmellows, and cookies. The marshmellows were of seasonal flavor - pumpkin, cranberrry & vanilla. They catered to my husband's nut allergy, which was much appreciated. My only objection is the 1 stall for the ladies. I would add color/design/shape to the minimalistic decore.

I came here for lunch with a small group and everything was impeccable. The flavors throughout the meal were amazing. I had two dishes off their tasting menu: kampachi and sweetbreads. Both were eye-rolling delicious. The service and the way dishes are explained are a treat. I'll definitely be back for dinner.
