Restaurant Jean was recommended to me &I'll my husband by our friends Kathy and Emerson Smith. We had an absolutely perfect experience! The owner is delightful--a superb host who creates an elegant and unforgettable evening. The atmosphere is both intimate and subtly opulent and comfortable. The waiters are very knowlegeable with the perfect balance of competence and cordiality. We had the prix fixe menu--the most beautifully prepared and best-tasting cuisine we had in 2 weeks in France.
It is pricey but well worth it for a memorable experience! Le meilleur cuisine de Paris!
C'etait Magnifique!

An excellent small restaurant, I went for a business dinner on wednesday the 7th of November with 2 of my colleagues and the experience was just superb, we went for the surprise menu (4 courses) and we were so delighted with the dishes that we ordered an additional cheese platter with another round of wine.

The food is just excellent, not over complicated like some gastronomical restaurants can be, just simple food refined that taste very good.

The only complaint I have is probably that the red wine offered as part of our 4-course meal was a bit too young and could be of a better quality, this did not take anything away for the enjoyable experience.

At the end of our dinner we were offered a glass of aged cognac which I thought was a nice touch.

Arriving slightly after our eight thirty agreed arrival we unfortunately felt treated like secondary guests. It continued with a half our wait for the menue. We had wine by the glass and was highly surprised when red wine was poured in the same glass as used for the white! It did not help that the red wine had a significant amont of substance - so the half-emptied glass had to be returned to the waiter. Expensive desert wine was added to please - we only later discovered it was put on our bill! Having said this - it is a shame that such poor service overshadowed the superb food - nice composition of tastes and the use of first quality raw materials. Had we been Michelin inspectors we sadly would assume the restaurant would have lost its star momentarily.

Dear Sir,
First of all, we want to thank you for your frankness and are very annoyed about your disappointment.
We absolutely don't want to find excuses but we've been confronted with the whole change of our service's team. Unfortunately we sometimes have to be more indulgent... We sincerely regret that Jean doesn't live up to your expectation and hope we shall have the pleasure of welcoming you another time for a better experience. Thank you again for your comments which are always constructive.
Best regards.

The four of us were directed here by a friend in the US of the French owner. Dinner was delicious. We had the pre fixe menu for four, and enjoyed all aspects of each course. Wine pairings were excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It is a little off the beaten path for someone staying in St. Germaine, but easily accessible by metro.

Thank Mary V
