About Jean Georges
Jean-Georges opened in 1997 to critical acclaim. The jewel of Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s empire, the restaurant offers the very best in fine dining. Consistently awarded four stars by the New York Times and three Michelin stars, Jean-Georges presents exquisitely crafted dishes blending French, American, and Asian influences. Chef Jean-Georges is a master at maintaining the essence of ingredients while using them inventively to produce the best flavor. Jean-Georges’ chic and intimate dining room was redesigned by Thomas Juul-Hansen, with striking lighting by L’Observatoire. Impeccable service, tableside preparations, and floor-to-ceiling windows with stunning views of Central Park and Columbus Circle all contribute to an unforgettable dining experience. Jean-Georges offers a three-course prix-fixe menu and two six-course tasting menus: a traditional tasting of the chef’s signature dishes, and a seasonal tasting featuring fresh market ingredients.

Jean Georges Ratings and Reviews
I've been to this restaurant many times ...
I've been to this restaurant many times and this was one of the more disappointing experiences. I felt that the flavor combinations and execution on several of our dishes were not up to Jean Georges' standards. We had the strawberry dessert which seemed kind of like a muddled mess sitting in tapioca pudding. I can't imagine how this dish got approved for a tasting menu dessert. Excellent dishes were the asparagus and halibut and lobster. Lamb was perfectly cooked but not my favorite version of this.

When we arrived the server asked if we were celebrating any occasion and my husband mentioned it was my birthday. So, the staff went above and beyond and also brought a complimentary "happy birthday" mini- cake. Everything was excellent!

For a 3 star restaurant non acceptable level of food representation. From overcooked salmon and risotto to a stake taste bellow the caffeteria level. Overuse of spices was covering for large gap in imagination. In short: for foodies with regular opportunity to eat in michelin star restaurants, this experience would not qualify even for a single star
Very slow service. Extended delay for me ...
Very slow service. Extended delay for menus, water, drinks, bread and order. Service and courses rushed and frantic at the end. Not a good choice pre theatre, even though we arrived at 5:15 and made it clear we had to leave by 7:15-7:30. Good choice if you have all evening to enjoy a meal.

For some reason the reservation I made through Open Table sat us in the main dining room. I expected a less formal seating. The menu was haute cuisine and the food and service impeccable. The dining room was empty except for what appeared to be a Chinese delegation. As I said, I was hoping for a more casual and light lunch with my daughter and granddaughter.

Jean Georges seems to be phoning it in. The menu is similar to what it has been for years and there are no innovative dishes. The cooking is capable and the ingredients are high quality, but there no longer is much inspiration and no excitement. The 3 star Michelin rating is 1 1/2 stars too high.

I loved Jean Georges. The service was outstanding, as was the food. The portions were a great size - I left there feeling like I had gotten value for money, but not stuffed. I'd definitely recommend this restaurant!

This is a very good restaurant. People were very nice to us, and the food is very good. The lunch pricing is of interesting value. However, do not expect a 3-star michelin experience. The food is clearly not at that level. Much less original than Per Se or 11 Madison Park, or any 3 star experience. I would advise to go tonthe restaurant for a very good meal, but if you want something original and top level, there are better options in nyc. Beware however: unfortunately you are forced to set foot in a "trump" tower if you want to enter the restaurant.

Great food and service. My only gripe is that they charged for tea which is not the usual for high end restaurants like Le Bernardin, Per Se and Chef's Table. It made me feel nickeled and dimed. The vegetable/fruit juices were terrific. Crudo very pleasant and innovative. Main dishes were tasty, though the veal with flying pig was heavy on the salt. The tropical dessert was artistic, a coconut semifreddo frozen with liquid nitrogen with fruit and a gelato in the core. Outstanding presentation. The petit fours were weak compared to Marea.
Overall, a great value for a 3 star restaurant.
Finally, I appreciated the kitchen tour and it made me confident that Jean Georges is a class act. Pity about being in the Trump Tower.

This restaurant was nice. The ambience was very romantic and the service was outstanding. The food was good but the serving amount, I thought, was a bit much. We ordered 2 different kinds of tasting menu: Jean George and Summer. The food was flavorful, the presentation was pretty but the amount of food that was on the plate was good for 2. Towards the end, we felt like we've over indulged to a point where I felt sick. Normally, we finish every dish. This time, we had to take the rest of the food home.

A wonderful splurge for a special occasion lunch. The service was wonderful--elegant, but really friendly and welcoming: no hint of restaurant snobbery, and our waiter was eager to make (excellent) recommendations.
For a 3 star michelin restaurant, I was ...
For a 3 star michelin restaurant, I was truly surprised at the service and entree. We were visiting because I had an overseas friend who wanted to visit a Michelin star restaurant, and I'm a bit sorry I picked this one. We got the 2 course menu, and of our 2 courses in a party of 4, our silverware was continuously mixed up to the point where it became a "game" of guessing what silverware was who, especially when the two people who got the same entree got completely different silverware. Moreover, the appetizers were also served to the wrong people at our party- while we did the reshuffling ourselves, it was just surprising that throughout the meal, the only thing that was not "messed up" was the dessert, which was served properly (two of us got chocolate and two got strawberry, so the chances of getting that wrong was also rather slim).
As for food, I thoroughly enjoyed the initial tastes- while not entirely sure what it was (chickpea mash with a cracker, some sort of fish, and a tea?) it was pretty enjoyable. My appetizer, the trout and oyster dish, was also fairly enjoyable, although if given the chance to go back, I would certainly get something different- perhaps the sea urchin. I got the veal as an entree, and while I'm not an experienced foodie, the meat was certainly a bit tough for my taste and it got fairly difficult to finish, with the mushrooms and greens helping out tremendously to down the meat. However, I will say the dessert totally made up for it- I would highly recommend the dessert tastings, as they were entirely worth the $12 for the array of tastings and uniqueness. If I could just get the dessert, I totally would. Moreover, the complimentary chocolates and marshmallows were also extremely delicious.
For the novelty of going to a 3 Michelin star restaurant, this was certainly worth the money. But only the dessert really "blew me away", and I've never had quite so many mix ups in dishes and silverware, even in a normal restaurant.

JG is challenging. The room is arguably NY's finest. Service is attentive and polished without being stuffy. Food, however, can be hit-or-miss. The delicate flavor of baked oysters was swamped by lumps of stewed basil. Lobster although terrific, is a bit tough and could use a steak knife and, although several steps above the usual, the preparation isn't especially noteworthy. Sea Bass, however, is divine. Overall, plating is rather straightforward and not especially fussy. The wine list is extensive, although there aren't many stellar wines under $300 and no real bargains. Deserts are fine. I like JG, but I just don't love it - especially at prices that require a mortgage.
The same kitchen serves Nougatine which, the last time I looked had a prix fixe lunch tasting that is one of NYC's best bargains - short on atmosphere, but long on taste.
