    The best restaurant in NYC!

    I have lived in DC for 4 years. I eat out all the time. As an artist I also have a passion for food. This was the best place I have ever had the fortune to visit and eat in. I have even changed all my 30th birthday plans to meet in NYC and have a meal here now. A true taste sensation. I recommend the shrimp salad. mouth watering!he only downfall I felt is the white wine list could have been better! but the sweat pea flowers on the table made up for this.

    Disappointing

    I expected a lot more from a Jean Georges restaurant. Had a 10PM reservation, was not seated until well after 11. The service was beyond bad (and as a server myself, I am extremely forgiving)--we had to ask for a wine list, then flag our server down 15 minutes later to actually order a bottle of wine. Not once was my drink refreshed or my water refilled without my having to ask for it. However, I can overlook sub-par service in favor of excellent cuisine. We started with the oysters, and they were unbelievable, best I've ever had. Everything else was incredibly mediocre and borderline flavorless (salad, pizza, salmon, desserts). Not only that, but the heat was up so high that we all felt faint, and it was so dark that I couldn't even see comfortably (I'm 23 years old and have perfect vision). This restaurant is surviving on trendiness alone.

    Tasty American food, but overpriced

    This place has really cool architecture, especially downstairs in the basement dining room! We sat at a table beneath the sidewalk, and we could see the shadows of people walking overhead throough small, opaque glass holes. The interior is exposed brick, giving it a high-class, artsy feel. The food was very expensive, and was great but should have been a good deal cheaper. It was nothing AMAZING, just good ole american cuisine. I had a really nice time here due to the good service and cool interior, but wished the prices had been lower.

    Loved It!

    We went for a late Sunday lunch with no reservations and had a great meal! Both the Frisee salad and the one with the Champagne vinegarette were excellent but the Ahi Tuna Pizza was to die for! I didn't think the prices were not bad at all. I'm not sure what the dinner menu is like but we thought it was priced appropriately. The atmosphere was phenominal! Sophisticated, chic, warm contemporary, casual and comfortable.

    Creative eats but service is the peets

    I was just there over the weekend for a late lunch with the visiting parents. The place itself is impressive. It is sleekly designed and attracts a hip clientele - a combination of well dressed downtown types and young my-parents-are-rich-and-new-york-is-my-playground types. Blase locals strolled in wearing sandals and sweatpants to sunday brunch, then sip bottled water while reading the sunday times magazine. The food was terrific, the menu comprised of traditional dishes with a creative twist. Everyone with me seemed impressed. Only shortcoming? - the waitstaff. Our waitress was oblivious. As happened to another reviewer, ours walked off in the middle of giving our order, literally mid-sentence.

    Not worth the price

    The food was good, but I've tasted much better food for the same price. The atmosphere is also nice. But the service was just poor. I had a waiter spill wine all over my dress as he was walking through, and another spilled water all over the table. Would not go back.

    Phenomenal cuisine

    I was incredibly impressed with our food at Mercer Kitchen last night. We started with the seafood appetiser, which included perfectly prepared lobster tail, escargot, tuna sashimi, oysters, and succulent shrimp. But the main course made my day. I ordered the cod on a whim, and have honestly never had as deliciously prepared fish in MY LIFE. The outside was encrusted with a very light potato batter, the fish was exquisitely cooked and light, flavorful, flaky, moist...the radishes on top as a garnish were infused with some delicious type of mignonette, and the fish was sitting on perfectly blended and buttery mashed potatoes. My girlfriend had the salmon with chick pea puree with a light layer of mignonette sauce underneath. She was highly complimentary and as a foodie, that is saying a lot. Our desserts were equally scrumptious, I got the cheesecake with a squash salsa and mango ice cream, and my better half got the warm chocolate cake, which melted in the mouth. Atmosphere is great, but the service could be improved. Our waiter kept on calling every group he served "gentlemen," seemingly disregarding the finer sex. Overall, this is DEFINITELY a place worth checking out. I super highly recommend the cod. Price was $200 for two people with a bottle of wine, appetisers and dessert.
