Being a 3* Michelin, I was expecting the atmosphere to be a bit stiff - but it was very warm and friendly, with lot's of people laughing. The champagne wasn't very good, but we had a great Puligny Montrachet with our 3 course dinner of yellow fin tuna, seared foie gras and suckling pig - everything was delicious!

Service is top notch at Jean Georges - the waitstaff was attentive without being overbearing. Food is overall very good, though not every dish is amazing. My personal favorite is the spring pea soup with parmesan cream sauce - delicious and bright.

Experienced the prix fixe lunch here, and it was GREAT. The service was top notch, the food was an EXPERIENCE. Amuse bouche, appetizer (I had the uni toast with yuzu - oh man. So good.), I paid a little more for the wagyu, sitting atop of gojujang (very flavorful). The petit fours were a great ending, and house made marshmallows! An experience I'd love to have again.

Simply amazing. We had the prix fix lunch menu.
The rainbow tuna ribbons, presented on a bed of radish guacamole with a balsamic sauce was my favourite. Although the sublime sweetbreads came a close second! Tip: always splurge out for a dessert plate - the caramel tasting was lovely.
Really impressed with the quality & professionalism of service - the coordination & swiftness in which they swoop in as pairs to bring & take away plates great to see.

It lives up to the hype as one of New York's finest Michelin Restaurants. The ambiance offers pure elegance with a contemporary feel.
Menus range from a 3-course pre-fix at around $110 or a tasting for around $160. Wine Pairings are additional.
For a taste of Jean Georges without marking a dent in your wallet, come for lunch for their 2-course special priced at $38. Reservations are Highly recommended!

Jean Georges is my favorite 3 Michelin for lunch in the U.S. The dining room features high ceilings and large glass windows, which allow for beautiful views of Central Park. The tuna sashimi (presented as a bowl of spaghetti) and the sea bass are great choices. The wine list is expansive and pricey, though a decent selection of brands is available for affordable rates.

Excellent food. My wife and I love the way he combined various flavors throughout every course. The desserts are incredible. One of the best restaurants we've been to. Only thing that was bothersome is that you always get some random person loudly stating how awesome the food is, "HMMMM..... darling, is this not the best lobster you have ever tasted? Yummy!..." Stop. Please just stop.

**BEST PRIX FIXE IN TOWN**
We celebrated our anniversary with a memorable meal at JG. Yes, Denzel Washington enhanced the experience (he sat nearby), but it was all about the food here!
The restaurant made sure we had the best table in the main dining room (table #3), major bonus points. Romantic, cozy, and semi-private.
I had the following:
(1) Sea Trout Sashimi with trout eggs and lemon, dill, and horseradish - I don't like tart-anything and I realized too late that this dish, despite the excellent sashimi-quality, was tart. I should have ordered the foie gras brulee as mentioned in many of the other reviews.
(2) Parmesan risotto with various mushrooms and herbs - my least favorite dish of the bunch. I like the risotto creamier. It lacked the true Parmesan flavor.
(3) Halibut - soft block of halibut with yellow sauce was incredibly fresh and delicious. The best halibut I've had, hands-down.
(4) Chocolate dessert - mini warm soft chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream was the MOST EXCELLENT ending to a fabby meal. The quality of chocolate, Valrhona was evident and most restaurants cannot get the molten middle right, but Jean-Georges does. Applause.
(5) BONUS: flan dessert - beautifully-made custard with the right amount of sweetness, probably the best flan I've had.
DEFINITELY ONE OF THE BEST MEALS IN NYC.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND if you can afford to . . . lunch prix fixe is the greatest deal in NYC.
