Description: JoJo offers relaxed yet elegant dining on two floors of a quaint, turn-of-the-century brownstone on the Upper East Side. The first of Jean-Georges’ restaurants in New York City, this neighborhood gem opened in 1991 to rave reviews. It was voted best new restaurant of the year by Esquire magazine and has retained its three-star status from the New York Times for 21 years. Regarding the name, JoJo was Chef Jean-Georges’ nickname as a young boy. Jojo is a hospitable setting for a casual dinner, special occasion, or private party. Guests can feel comfortable in jeans or in evening attire. The contemporary French menu still features some well-loved original dishes, including the Warm Valrhona Chocolate Cake.

We spent three weeks in nyc dining at well researched and two Michelin star restaurants, yet this hidden gem rated the top. Obviously popular with the locals but not on the tourist path. My husband had a great vegetarian meal and my halibut was the best I had tasted. The wine list was excellent covering all price ranges. Will definately... More

We enjoyed a quiet dinner with our friends from Toronto on Sunday Aug 24. We were seated upstairs in sort of tight quarters between a table for two and a family celebrating their 25 year old daughter's birthday. A couple of times during our dinner, the father at the other table and I hit elbows. I am not sure why... More

We chose the 3-course restaurant week lunch - two choices for appetizer, entree, and dessert. I had the watermelon gazpachao (outstanding), roast chicken (ok) and blueberry financier with ice cream on the side (surprisingly tasteless). Excellent value, but we spoiled the effect by ordering an expensive bottle of white wine (we were celebrating two birthdays)! The service was very good... More

The food here is decent, although the price is not worth the quality. It is a nice restaurant and ambience and the service is great. My wife and I just did not leave feeling blown away, which is disappointing because this spot could have become a regular place for us. For about half the price you can go to Donohue's... More

This restaurant was highly recommended by friends from the city. I ordered the crab cakes to start with and and the lobster for mains. I wouldn't say either of them were exceptional...the others on our table though seemed to enjoy the lamb chops and the duck. The service however was excellent and the atmosphere intimate and welcoming.

I am a true foodie through and through but, i am not a fan of stuffy. Jojo is an upper east side staple I having being going to for years. Although in a "stuffy" neighborhood it is anything but. Snuck away on a week night this week to have dinner with my other half. Their summer menu did not disappoint.... More

We've been clients since it opened and still enjoy dinner. I prefer to start with soup......pumpkin or sweet pea or whatever is the soup of the day. Then roast chicken. Dale often has the risotto. Last night she had a lobster dish. Terrific place. The only knock is that it's small and, therefore, the tables can be cramped. We prefer... More
