The night started out great. Perry St was selected for my Christmas Eve birthday celebration. First the good: Arriving at the restuarant we were seated promptly. The room is understated elegance. The bad: Extended delays, inattentive staff, wine pairings that didn't arrive until the end of courses and some real misses on food quality. Final indignity was being asked to find our own coats since the staff couldn't (despite our coat checks). We found our coats, but my scarf was lost. We have eaten at other Jean Georges establishments that were great. Perry Street missed the mark.

My husband and I had a perfect evening at Perry St. The restaurant is low key, chic and subdued but has a good vibe partially due to the background music , lighting and the other patrons. The food was beautifully prepared and each bite was better than the one before. We started with the rice crusted tuna, peeky toe crab salad and shared calamari. We ordered three first courses because it was hard to limit ourselves to two because everything sounded wonderful. For dinner we had the butter poached lobster( divine!) and the organic fried chicken, which my husband savored. We ended the meal by sharing the chocolate pudding . I neglected to mention that our cocktails were delicious and our server was attentive but not overly so which allowed us to enjoy conversation without interruptions. Overall, it was a lovely beautiful evening and we are looking forward to going back.

I'm not a big Jean Georges fan but thought Perry St. was wonderful. One friend had the prix fixe tasting menu and raved about the pea soup and the burger. Another friend and I had the poached lobster. The sauce that came with was phenomenal and the ravioli was amazing. Also had a wonderful Austrian white wine. We all had the chocolate dessert that comes with the tasting menu (which sounded more interesting than any of the a la carte options) and it was decadent and divine. Service was attentive without being fawning. When I phoned afterward to get the name of the wine, they couldn't have been nicer. The room is very spare and without the cherry blossoms would feel antiseptic, but the big glass windows and open feeling are very nice. This is a lovely downtown spot.

Came here for dinner with my friend for Restaurant week. It was pretty good but usu Jean George restaurants are pretty good. Had the sweet chili crab dumplings which were really good....filled with pieces of crabmeat/no fillers. For my entree, I had the slow cooked cod with the vegetable rautatouille. It was pretty good but not remarkably amazing. Dessert was the warm chocolate cake....really good. Service was so so, our waiter never came by to check if we needed anything/see how our meal was.

As a fairly knowledgeable New Yorker when it comes to food and who has been a fan of JG for a long time, this restaurant was an unexpected gem that my friends and I came across. The hostess was very kind/welcoming and let us sit in another table that we pointed we would prefer which ended up being a great decision because we were seated at a large booth that gave us a great intimate vibe without being secluded and our server couldn't have been more attentive and knowledgeable without being intrusive. She spoke french which was very nice as one of my friends guests was visiting from France and did not know a lot of English therefore assisted in translating some of the items. When I asked how some items were prepared, she made all of them sound so apetizing that I finally caved in and just asked her to pick everything for my girlfriend and I, which ended up being a great decision. To start: Crusted tuna and crispy poached eggs with caviar. Absolute heaven. Both dishes were honestly the perfect combination of taste, texture, and balance. Entrees: Fried Chicken and Lobster. The lobster is out of this world. It was substantial in size, out of shell, and completely delicious. the fried chicken was surprisingly light and incredibly tasty. Dessert: You MUST order the chocolate pudding with violets. We almost ordered two, it was that good. My only complaint is the wine list was a little lacking. Looking forward to going back already..

Excellent food, drinks and setting. One of the best places the city has to offer.

I don't know where to begin. Let's just say that as soon as I walked in with a stroller, the manager or whoever he is, didn't look too happy. He wasn't even friendly. The staff was very nice and service wasn't bad. We liked the food. We ordered the arctic char sashimi and yellowfin tuna burger that was cooked to perfection. We also ordered chocolate molten cake that tasted like chocolate molten cake, nothing really special about this dessert. My friend ordered fruit platter and it tasted weird. The ice cream on that platter tasted something like came out of the hospital or dentist office. Not sure what the flavor was. I probably won't return. I know that a kid friendly restaurant is not a kid friendly restaurant, but at least you could be professional and treat all customers equal.
