Sunday Lunch
World-renowned chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten has opened his eponymous restaurant, Jean-Georges at The Connaught, this summer.
Overlooking fashionable Mount Street in the heart of Mayfair, the restaurant will offer all-hours, informal gourmet dining in a relaxed, contemporary neighbourhood setting.
The eclectic, imaginative menus are inspired both by Jean-Georges’ experiences of the Far East and his signature use of South-east Asian flavours, whilst also featuring his distinctive take on British and Connaught classics, from fish and chips to traditional afternoon tea, influenced by his earlier working life and love of London. Sourcing the best of British ingredients, the menus will also reflect the simple farm-to-table, fresh-from-the-market approach long pioneered by Jean-Georges, and found at his restaurant at The Mark and ABC Kitchen in New York.

I had a recommendation for this place, and it did not disappoint. The setting was beautiful with the big open windows to the outside and elegantly decorated. The service was very attentive and the food lovely. We all had a really good time at this place and would not hesitate to come back.

We recently went to dinner at Jean-Georges at The Connaught. The service and the ambiance were the best part of the evening. However unfortunately we were rather disappointed with the food which should be the main focus point. Worth a try but would we go again??? I am not sure......

A Lunchtime visit with the A La Carte menu chosen. Luxurious Truffled Cheeseburger and a simply cooked salmon dish followed by the fun and very instagramable Cherry Candyfloss dessert. This is Mayfair so don't expect cheap but it is exceptional cooking and therefor good value.

Great service from attentive staff.
Unusual seating arrangements adds to the general 'feel' of an afternoon tea venue rather than a sophisticated lunch option. Not helped by a number of noisy children running around uninhibited.
The innovative and interesting food deserves a better environment.

The FT menu was quite poor, a huge portion of chicken and the smallest sushi I have ever seen. Much better off for the same money to go a la carte.

Another great experience and fabulous meal, Jean-Gorges always delivers! The signature tuna tartare and crab salad to start, lobster and Cornish lamb chomps mains with molten chocolate cake to finish was divine. Can’t wait to return.

We were made to feel very unwelcome and the way the staff treated us was as if we were not supposed to be here. We requested a coffee and a specialised one. The waiter embarrassed us be laughing at the request in front of the entire restaurant. We felt so pathetic for even asking that we just had coffee and left. If you’re a person of colour and you don’t look as if you have money, you will be made to feel belittled by this place.

Very good restaurant at the Connaught Hotel. I was a bit surprised when we arrived to be seated in what looked like the bar. But the chairs were comfortable and the lighting was much better than at the adjacent terrace section of the restaurant. The food was delicious, we had the tasting menu with seven beautifully presented and very tasty courses. Not a single one of them disappointed. Staff was friendly and professional. My red wine by the glass was even refilled without additional charge. Excellent service.

I have been here few times. The staff make extra effort. Once I remember they went out of the way when my order was not the way I expected to accommodate me and didn’t even charge me . I was ready to pay but loved the way they took responsibility on their head. Don’t remember but even desert they got me a cheese plate. The waiter at the time went few times to kitchen to see if he could accommodate my halal/ no gelatin request. It all comes down to staff politeness and courtesy. As a customer my one request is to make the burger halal, I would certainly have it more often.-

Went with a friend and really enjoyed it. Good food and wine but not cheap. Really difficult to find any bottle of wine under £50 a bottle so as long as you know what you are getting into it is fine. Nice venue as you have a choice of two bars and nice setting onto s square.

This was our 1st visit to this restaurant at the Connaught although we have been to Helene Darroze a few times. We were seated at a table which was in a slightly odd place and which obstructed the exit of guests on a nearby table so, sensing our unease, the staff offered to move us to a table near the window which was much better. The service was excellent and while the menu appears to be at the more casual end of the spectrum, do not mistake that for any reduction in quality - the food was really lovely. I had the kale salad followed by the turbot while my partner has the tuna tartare followed by the sea bass (which we learned was the signature dish). Unusually for us we followed with a dessert (rice pudding and chocolate cake). The rice pudding was light and delicious - it is a shame that it is not a permanent feature on the menu. The wine list is very pricey but very good. I haven't seen Leeuwin Estate Art Series for a while so we had a bottle of that which was very nice (but expensive). Overall a very lovely dinner and a new addition to our list of local favourites.
