Never disappointed at Jojos even under the present circumstances.
Charming bistro setting on a quiet side street.
Completely Covid compliant. Napkin and silverware brought to table in sealed plastic packages.
Menu was on scanner or through website on my iPhone.
Seafood salad excellent,Chicken always delicious, my second choice since duck was not available
Waygu steak perfectly prepared
Homemade chocolate chip cookie melted in our mouths.
Extra special with the remembered anniversary candle
Wonderful SERVICE

We have been dining at JoJo’s before and always had a good experience but we won’t be going back anytime soon.
I understand all the pandemic related adaptions the restaurants have to make but still...
Uncomfortable seating, bread in a paperback was dry, the Jean George warm seafood salad, a signature appetizer, was nothing like I ate before in his various restaurants, lack of savor and poorly served.
The waitress was borderline friendly!
To leave this on a positive note, yes, the duck was pretty good.
But definitely all together over rated!

Everything was wonderful: the service, the food, a sense of relaxed elegance and we appreciated their attention to safety measures in light of the pandemic.

The service and food were very very good. The service of food in paper and plastic containers was unappealing and took away from the special experience of going out to dine.

The food got better as the evening went on. The pea and carrot soup was a bit too watery and didn't have enough flavor. The mains were good, sea bass and the wagyu, although portions were a bit small. Dessert of a warm gooey cookie was delicious. They did a great job of making it work in the times of covid.

Fabulous all the way around. I haven't been to here in about four years, albeit have been going for 25. Went this past Sat and the food, service, wine was impeccable. I had the Lobster with a mint, butter and something sauce that was completely out of this world. Shared the crab dumplings which were amazing. The new decor is very different. Hope to bring my family there in April for my fathers birthday or as soon as restaurants open again.

The most superb dining experience we have had in a long time. True professionals all around, from service at the door to the cozy and calm table, and clearly the kitchen. Every sauce, morsel, side, and bite was exquisitely prepared, delicious - you can just imagine the Chefs toiling over each dish. We were very impressed - hadn't been in years and love the "re-do". This is what a truely talented team can do. Kudos to them - expensive, but worth every penny. Culinary excellence. Thank you!
