The venue and service was exceptional.. the food was just OK

The highlight of the restaurant is the venue itself. The place is beautiful and the views exceptional.. Unfortunately, the food takes a back seat to the venue. While good, the steak quality was average. The appetizer was not good at all. I had the soup which had no flavor at all. My friend had... read more

We were at the restaurant for a special birthday for my wife. Views are awesome. Service at the restaurant bar while we were waiting was very good. I ordered the Rib Eye steak, and my wife ordered the filet. The waiter told us the chef just cooks the steaks with minimal items, and lets the meat flavors speak for themselves.... More

I was here for a business dinner with a few foodies and JG did NOT disappoint. We started with foie gras, then ordered more appetizers, and then enjoyed steak for most of us at our table. The array of flavors are very well done and the chef clearly knows how to impress. I would highly recommend this restaurant. It was... More

Was looking forward to eating there due to their renowned head chef. Coming from New York and being a foodie, my expectations were high. My husband ordered a steak. It was extremely pricey, yet it was thin, the portion was small, it was overcooked and yet arrived cold. The portion of creamed spinach "to feed two persons" was pricey and... More

Recently I went out to dinner with my wife to J & G at the Phoenician, the atmosphere and setting was very nice. Unfortunately we were very disappointed in the quality of service and food.

My husband and I enjoyed an amazing dinner here this past week. We decided on the Chef's tasting menu with the wine pairing. Each course was amazing and the wine complimented each course perfectly. The filet was tender and the chocolate dessert paired with port was a perfect ending to the dinner.

We were able to get a table last minute on Valentine's day! What a nice surprise since it was well communicated through hotel that they had been booked for months. Delicious dinner, great wine, superb service!

This is a beautiful space overlooking the lively Phoenician pools. It is seriously gorgeous and also the best place to eat if you are staying at the Phoenician. The service was very attentive and timely. We had the pork belly and the truffle puffs. The pork belly was good and the truffle puffs were ok, not memorable. I had the... More
