“Very Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

This was our first visit to Chez Jean Pierre and likely it will not be our last. This is a fine restaurant from beginning to end. The four of us arrived for dinner on a Saturday night in the middle of the Palm Beach winter season. The restaurant was full and the crowd was backing out of the front door. With all of that, the service at the entry was very good and very efficient. We were greeted promptly and warmly. Our reservation was at 7:45 and we were seated promptly as, I might add, were all of the other visiting guests.

Chez Jean Pierre is a large space with multiple dining rooms. We were escorted to our table and that began the best of the night, the food, ambience, waitstaff and lovely decor. The tables are set with nice, starched linens. The waiters are very professional. Our waiter Hue was fantastic. He is a friend of our friend and we had a wonderful evening with his extraordinary knowledge of all of the food and all of the wines. Each of our courses was very well prepared.


Chez Jean Pierre is expensive. The starters range from $15-$38, the main courses are mostly in the $40s. You get the point. These are big city prices, but the restaurant delivers. I say the place is very good, but it's not amazing. It's a 1 star and not a 3 star, but it is certainly worth multiple visits, to the extent you can afford its prices.

“Excellent!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013 via mobile

Jean Pierre is an excellent French restaurant. It is the best restaurant in Palm Beach for any food and one of the best restaurants in South Florida. We are from New York and are used to great food. We also judge restaurants by New York standards which is sometimes hard in Florida. Jean Pierre would do well in New York, it is that good. The place is very romantic, nice for a special occasion. The service is excellent and professional. The food is the reason to go though. French specialties that equal anything you can find in France. Fresh fish, excellent meat are all on the menu. They have an excellent wine list also. The prices are high but so is the quality so don't complain if you are put off by high prices.

“Quality food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

This is everything one would want in a traditional French restaurant. A counter point to the also excellent Cafe Boulud. I've never had a bad dish here. Salads are wonderful. I like several... the warm shiitake mushroom, the hearts of palm and also the string bean, beet and asparagus. The mussels are great, the pâté wonderful. Then the main courses..take your pick. The Dover sole is the top for me; their ratatouille is great too. Good breaded pan fried pounded veal!
