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.

Food was marginal, service was clumsy and they sat another table so close that a stranger and I rubbed shoulders for 45 minutes. So many better places to choose from. Very disappointing.

We chose the tasting menu and asked for the wine pairings. Each course, starting with the caviar, was a surprise with delicate flavors and artistic presentation. The paired wines were all new to us, the most dramatic being an Italian white served from a jeroboam. But nothing could match the drama of the mountain of spun sugar filled with sorbets and treats that were revealed when the sauce pierced the top. A memorable evening. And the staff made it even more so with attention, stories and charm.

In contrast to its more obviously fine-dining predecessor, "Jean-George at The Connaught" is unashamedly just an expensive bistro; accordingly I hadn't expected too much. Nonetheless, the cuisine is refined, and lunching there was still a treat. I shared the Grilled Octopus starter with my lunch companion, and followed that up with the Poppy Seed Crusted Salmon -- both were delicious. As expected, the service was flawless. Further, that location and space remain unrivalled in terms of brightness and airiness; anecdotally, on this visit thru the hotel another 'world-figure' walked right past me... Barring the price-tag, I recommend without reservation.

Expectedly pricey considering the setting, Jean-Georges nevertheless does not fail to impress, surprise, and overall leave a generous and foody aftertaste. The food is innovative and daring and the atmosphere is shrewdly casual.
The only irk is the ‘we require a credit card number to secure your booking’ policy. Although this is probably going to become an industry standard in Western cities (hey, it’s 2018…), there remains the feeling to be treated like a stuffed turkey. Unsurprisingly, they don’t serve it a la carte.

This is the quintessential example of a refined yet relaxed dining experience with delicious food and perfect service in an elegant “living room type” setting. It is lovely in every way. The Lemon burrata appetizer is unique and refreshingly delicious. The spiced salmon is near perfection. There is a fine wine selection and you can get the wonderful Billecort Salmon Brut by the glass ! Desert is sublime. My husband and I give this restaurant 5 stars because it is consistent in all aspects of the dining experience - from taking your coat upon entry right through to the doorman at the exit. Feels like family at the end of the evening. Well done, Jean Georges, well done!

My second visit and cannot wait for the next .
Exceptional service standards in surroundings that delight the senses
Well thought through menus and dishes executed with skill and passion.
Too many favourites to pick a single dish. The wine list and cocktails served with great knowledge and skill.
If you only dine in one MAYFAIR venue in 2018. Make it here.

My assistant booked for lunch thru OpenTable using my account and I received the confirmation on my mobile. But the a day later I got an email from the restaurant asking for my credit card info to guarantee the reservation!
What a hassle! A bit arrogant. Not very customer friendly.
Anyway, so I, not too willingly, obliged since I had already announced the lunch location to my guest and did not want to change it.
But then thru out lunch I realized there where at least half a dozen tables available. So all that headache and bitterness caused, was for nothing, it was not as if there were a stampede to eat there.
I am not going back

I have been to the original JG in NYC as well as ABC Kitchen and ABC Cucina. The first time I went to JG, food was excellent. I ordered the burger the second time I went there and it doesn’t match the burgers at JG restaurants in New York. The bun was very dry and almost stale. The patty was good but it needed more condiments. The truffle mayo and cheese combo was excellent but it was missing something to add a bit more spice (jalapeños?, rocket?). But definitely the bun needs to change. It just ruined the burger experience !! I say this in the hopes in gets to the kitchen chefs so they can change it because it is an otherwise a great restaurant.

The food is nice, but the portions are small. For example a 30 pounds pizza was probably for a kid rather than an adult. Avoid the pizza and order something else!
The afternoon tea that the others were having seemed very nice so I would suggest you go for that.
