Great food, great ambiance, great service! Can’t think of what I didn’t like during our visit. A very interesting menu. Tried the broccoli soup thai style, pleasantly surprised at the taste! Food was great, don’t forget the french fries with herbs. Highly recommend this place.

Delicious food. We just loved the tuna tartare in lettuce leaf appetizer, the Wagu beef, brussel sprouts, and dessert (warm chocolate cake and pear/sour cherry crumble) -- honestly everything was really good but those were the standouts. We had a 7:30 reservation (Sunday) made through...More

The refurbished JoJo, with simple, elegant decor is much different from the old JoJo dining experience. The food remains excellent, as in all Jean-George restaurants, but the atmosphere, although very tasteful, left me uninspired as did the wait staff. True, they said they are having...More
