There's really nothing special about JG. His other restaurant "Vong," is better-although not the main courses. For the price that JG charges, the food is not the greatest. Nothi...

Nice but not perfect 9/26/2010

I took my parents to Nougatine for the prix fixe dinner--a first-time visit for all of us. While the space is beautiful, and you do feel like you are experiencing something special just by being there, I was not blown away by all of the food. My chicken entree, while beautifully presented, was actually somewhat bland. And there was a scale in my tuna tartare, which I quickly tried to hide from my dinner companions, who were trying this dish for the first time at my urging. However, the meal was a positive experience overall, especially considering the special price. more

Surprisingly uneven 12/13/2009

I had not eaten at JG in several years and was looking forward to my recent visit tremendously. I was, disappointingly, underwhelmed by the evening. There were unquestionable high points: the broth on the black sea bass was extraordinary, and the turbot was also very very good. The amuse bouche featured a duck confit with a ravioli that was outstanding.\r \r But the meal as a whole was disappointinly uneven, and just as there were high points there were low points. The crispy rabbit was, in essence, a rabbit mcnugget. Even the very good sauce with it didn't make the dish appealing. Several of the desserts were disasters: the deep fried pumpkin pie on the ""spice"" dessert menu was so heavily salted as to be inedible and the pastry under the apple tart was dense and mushy. \r \r At this price point and given the restaurant's reputation I had expected much better. Pros: Creativity Cons: Lack of Consistency more

Good but not Great, more like Michelin 2-star 11/13/2009

I dined here back in Sept. Service was attentive but I was very disappointed when a hair is attached to the bread. Staff just replaced it without apology, a Michelin 3-star should do better than this. The food tasted good but not consistently excellent. Other than the Egg Caviar, presentation of plates was simple, not artistic or creative enough. Soup was flavorful but salty. Very Good Scallops though. Lobster was tender but lack texture of freshness. Squab was over-cook not med-rare as it should. Excellent dessert though. Seating was not as comfortable as cushion needs replacement. Very good wine list and knowledgeable staff. I'd rate JG overall a B+. I felt this is a Michelin 2-star, not as memorable as my 3-star experience else where. Better value to dine in the main area at Nougatine Pros: Wine, dessert Cons: no apology after hair is found in food more

One of the great restaurants in the world 10/20/2009

I can't really add much to the superlatives about the food. It's wonderful. So I'll focus instead on two points that aren't often addressed in reviews I've read. First, despite the high overall costs, this restaurant is quite a value. The $98 dollar menu brings four courses rather than the usual three and all of them are good sized. That might not matter much to small women but for a large man like me, it's nice not to walk out of a big dinner feeling hungry. Second, the chairs are really comfortable. This may sound like a minor point, but it's not. When you're settling in for what can easily be a three-hour meal, you can only enjoy it if you're comfy. A shocking number of top dining spots don't seem to understand this. My one critique: The decoration in the dining room is beginning to look both warn and dated. It's probably time for a refresh. Pros: Incredible food, excellent service, great value Cons: decor beginning to look worn more

Delicious, but Crowded Feeling 10/1/2009

Had lunch at Nougatine during the week with a group of 4. The service and food was very good. The fish dishes (appetizers and entrees) were fresh and delicious. We enjoyed the $26 lunch deal, which entailed two entree/appetizer choices and a dessert. One appealing factor was that you can pick two entrees in the deal vs. the typical appetizer and entree. The portions were on the medium to small side, but well cooked. My only qualm is that the table spacing is very limited. It felt very crowded (like we were on top of one another) and you could hear everyone's conversation (i.e. noisy). Not recommended for a romantic meal. Pros: excellent food, good lunch deal, nice service Cons: poor table spacing caused very crowded feeling more

Not that impressed 9/18/2009

We went also for the pre fixe menu at 6:30 pm. My very organized friend called several times after we changed our reservation from 5 pm to 630 pm that the pre-fixe would still be available. Of course they gave us trouble about that saying we all have to order it or it wont work. I preferred to order of the regular menu, so after the waiter talking over with the manager we were able to make it work. I thought the food was not that amazing. My fish was good, but the rest of the meal wasn't anything spectacular. I would not go back because of the food quality. However, the most unbelievable thing of the night were the rude patrons. I prefer not go into personal details, but let's just say that because of the ambience I will not return. Definitely not a good atmopshere. It reminds me more of a retired country club where people have been members for years and you are the new person in town. Pros: Nice prices for presentation Cons: Rude patrons more

Excellent 8/19/2009

This is the second time I have eaten here and I think it is one of the best experiences that one can have in a NYC restaurant. You must try it for yourself! Bon appetit! It is guaranteed to please. Pros: Great Service, Fantastic Food Cons: The location is hard to find the first time around more

You will love this restaurant 7/28/2009

First, the food is fabulous, and I'm a foodie/cook. Secondly, the ambition of this restaurant mirrors that of its big brother and shows in the attentiveness of the service, the place settings, the wonderful summer drinks and in the food. The table we enjoyed was fronted by the preparation area, and it was an additional treat to watch this somewhat hectic, but controlled ballet as the dishes poured out while the crowd settled in. Two of our table of four did not show, and our waitress never blanched or reacted although it must have been what they dread most. Wonderful service. Prix fixe lunch was $26 (restaurant week) and it was simply to die for. As this is not Kansas and not some tourist trap steak house joint, but rather a serious effort, it is necessarily relatively expensive. It is fabulous and beautiful and worth every penny. Pros: Beautiful setting; sophisticated food; impeccable service Cons: None more
