Saturday brunch at La Nougatine was delicious and a lovely experience. We booked through OpenTable the morning of, without issue. Service is polite and so respectful of their guests. Loved the attention the staff is giving to clients to make sure they're having a positive experience. Menu is short but varied, focusing on fresh ingredients all made on the spot.... More

My wife and I went there for lunch today outside on the patio. We had a 2:15 pm reservation that was honored and our lunch took an hour and thirty five minutes. We had a glass of wine, bread, two appetizers, a salad and two deserts. The water was warm and we had to ask for ice. The bread was... More

We had dinner here on a Saturday night - excellent appetizers and fantastic main courses. The staff was very professional and attentive and we all (4 of us) really enjoyed the evening there. We sat at the bar while we waited for our table (we had a reservation) but one might expect a bit of a wait in a on... More

Everyone should go here for the food sometime. We showed up and were forced to wait over 20 minutes after our reservation time which was a negative for such an establishment. However, once that was done we were seated and had an incredible meal. The food was all very flavorful and had many unique elements. Would most definitely return, hopefully... More

Located next to the lobby of The Trump International Hotel and Jean Georges Restaurant, this more casual alternative offers many of the qualities of its parent at a much more reasonable price. Great food and service!

Excellent service and a beautiful restaurant. The breakfast menu was a little limited. We ordered both an egg dish and pancakes - good, but nothing special for the price. We had a perfect table by the window with a view of Central Park (although there was some street construction obstructing the view).

So I know a guy, that knows a guy - who had a personal note from the chef at Restaurant Noma saying that this Jean Georges restaurant is worth a visit. On the last day of our visit we booked for lunch. Since I was wearing shorts we had to enjoy the meal outside on the terrace. It has been... More

We went for brunch on a Saturday morning, everyone was please with their meal. Meals are cooked to perfection, the side potatoes are to die for, simply melting in the mouth. Service was on point. I didn't get the wow factor but would definitely go back for a casual meal with friends.

Our family of five, ranging in age from a very well-behaved 8-year-old to a 67-year-old grandmother (me!), thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at NOUGATINE. I had the Dover Sole ($78) which was lightly sautéed to perfection. The potatoes were also very good. Our servers were attentive and helpful. The ambiance and decor were a little modest for a fine-dining restaurant. One... More

Jean-Georges opened in 1997 to critical acclaim. The jewel of Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s empire, the restaurant offers the very best in fine dining. Consistently awarded four stars by the New York Times and three Michelin stars, Jean-Georges presents exquisitely crafted dishes blending French, American, and Asian influences. Chef Jean-Georges is a master at maintaining the essence of ingredients while using them inventively to produce the best flavor. Jean-Georges’ chic and intimate dining room was redesigned by Thomas Juul-Hansen, with striking lighting by L’Observatoire. Impeccable service, tableside preparations, and floor-to-ceiling windows with stunning views of Central Park and Columbus Circle all contribute to an unforgettable dining experience. Jean-Georges offers a three-course prix-fixe menu and two six-course tasting menus: a traditional tasting of the chef’s signature dishes, and a seasonal tasting featuring fresh market ingredients.
