“Simply Superb!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

We have dined at Jorg quite a few times now, and we have never been disappointed. The service is warm and friendly, and the food simply superb! On Sunday afternoon, we began with the Terrine Du Jour, which was a rabbit ballotine, wrapped in prosciutto crudo, accompanied by a scrumptious house-made tomato relish and grilled ciabbata - delicious. Meticulous presentation. Of course, we were also given warm crusty bread with extra virgin olive oil. We then chose a few more entree plates - there are so many tempting options, we couldn't resist. The char-grilled asparagus with house-made mayonnaise dressing, hazelnuts and goat's cheese fritters was a huge hit, as was the delicately battered zucchini flowers, stuffed with fior di latte and served with a fresh red and green tomato salad. YUM! My husband then had the house-made papardelle with a rich venison ragu - most impressive. I chose the house-made special of pumpkin tortellini in a browned butter sauce with sage leaves and fresh authentic Italian parmesan. HEAVEN!!! In true Italian tradition, I mopped up all the sauce with extra bread (which we didn't have to ask for).
Fully satisfied as we were after such a magnificent meal, we still had to make room to share a dessert - we chose the house-made raspberry ice-cream chocolate brownie sandwich, presented with fresh raspberries and delectably crunchy and stick-to-your-molars honey comb... we fought over the last piece!! Ha Ha!! Jorg is a great space, but it can be quiet at times (we were there for a very late lunch). It has an excellent wine list...and it is even BYO on Sunday evenings. Oh, and we also spent our NYE there in 2011 - a fabulous, super value evening! Jorg really is a terrific place to dine, thanks to the three partners - two highly skilled and experienced chefs and the attentive front-of-house host, Vince. Well worth your time. You will love it!!

“Lovely, interesting food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012

The pea and squash tortellini is to die for, when it's on the menu. A decent number of vegetarian dishes, and some fantastic fish and meat dishes. Desserts are great too. Lovely staff, lovely food, it's great.

“Definitely worth getting out of the City Centre for!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2011

I went for dinner with friends at Jorg. There were about 9 of us.The tram only takes about 10 minutes to get there and there is a lovely little pub a few doors up for a nice drink before dinner.
The menu is set up in small plates and large plates. We ordered a selection of small plates for starters. The quail was delicious and the chicken ribs were amazing. There were also these heated olives which were gorgeous!
For main I had the tortellini - fabulous! The service was fantastic and the wine list was great. We also got a few sides which were very nice. I couldnt fit in dessert unfortunately but I did have a taste of the chocolate mousse. Yum!
I will definitely go there again.
