JoJo represents the best in Manhattan dining. The decor of the townhouse on upper Eastside is intoxicating. The menu is wonderful. The front desk and service is excellent. The food is sublime. The value is outstanding. Perhaps only the too small bar and waiting area are less than perfection. The legend lives on.

A great way to experience the quality of Daniels at a reasonable price. The portions are perfect and the menu is varied enough to satisfy everyone. The room is a bit cramped and loud (upstairs).

I loved this place the last time I ate here in the Ninties, but I found it tired on a recent visit. The food isn't daring the way it used to be--just nice, Upper East side French fare--at a high price. My dinner for one cost $100 wwithout dessert. I feel I can get much better value in places that are more posh and deluxe. Still, a good place to eat if you happen to live nearby and have a trust fund.

This is a dreamy bit of the Left Bank in Manhattan. The menu is simple but far from basic. This is not one of those places with odd concoctions that sound impressive, but taste confusing. The warm asparagus salad is exquisite and the swordfish with carrots and cumin is just out of this world. Weekends are very crowded, and we had to wait 30 minutes even with a reservation- but they were almost overly apologetic and a drink on the house in the tiny wisp of a bar made the wait acceptable. The service is simply perfect- attentive but not intrusive. The townhouse atmosphere is intact and each small dining room has a cozy and intimate feeling. Dreamy.

Architectural fries

Order the chic pea fries. One does not merely get a bunch of fries tossed in a random dissaray, but rather a few perfectly shaped, crisp golden fries made from ground chic peas, architecturally stacked in a cris-cross, or hached formation. My immediate thought: Richard Meier's new World Trade Center rendition, on a plate.

We ate at Jojo last night, and had a fantastic meal. I had the $65 prix-fix dinner, and my wife ordered a la carte. We are still talking about our meal. Everything was truly tasty, and we felt that the price was in-line with the quality and taste of the food. My four course dinner included huge chunks of lobster over rissoto, and venison. Dessert was their incredible chocolate cake. My wife started with the fois gras, that melted in our mouths. The atmosphere is also attractive, as it is not stuffy or overly pretentious. Jojo just needs to focus on their staff. Our waitress first tried to push us up to a more expensive wine, and our meal was served painfully slow. Also, the host at the front desk seemed annoyed that he was working there, or working at all. His facial expressions and overall attitude exuded obnoxiousnous far beyond any that we had ever seen. Aside from the staff, the food more than makes up for any shortcomings at this establishment. We can't wait to go back.
