We just keep going back--that's all. Of all the places to eat in NYC, we keep going back to Vong. For the prix fixe luncheon, for birthdays, for secretary's day, for the spur-of-the-moment. It's lush, spicey, interesting. The experience makes you feel alive again. Go and see for yourself. It's divine.

Remains top of its class

Though the buzz is gone, Vong continues to provide top notch pan-Asian cusine served in a stylish setting with top notch service. The customers now focus on dinning versus being seen, which is all to the better. Remains top of its class.

The decor is very beautiful: though a few tables might be a tad "dark", it's probably the best I've seen in NY. As for the food, I tried the pre-theater menu at 35$. The raw tuna was very good and the mushroom and avocado carpaccio was fantastic (but so small unfortunately). Though the crispy-tofu was bad, the slow baked salmon was delicious. Both the pineapple dessert and wam chocolate cake were excellent.

VONG is a great place to take clients. The food is delicate and tasty, and the atmosphere is interesting. You can carry on a conversation -- and it's enjoyable. The staff could take a few professionalism courses.... but so could the staff of most places.

Overpriced and LOUD

This has to be Jean-Georges' least effective restaurant. It is long on decor and short on good food. So loud that it is hard to think, let alone talk to the person next to you. The starters were excellent and gave an idea of what the kitchen is capable of. However, they are very spicy. The bottle of great white burgundy was lost on this course. Assuming that the entrees would follow suit, we switched to beer. Wrong. The entrees were bland and not interesting. Should have saved the wine for that course. No input from the waiter, of course.

I took some out of town guests to Vong for a 5:45pm dinner reservation. We opted for the pre-theater pre-fixe dinner and while the food was fine, it was not outstanding as I remembered it being about 5 years ago. Additionally, service was quite slow and not as attentive, either -- we had our empty dinner plates on our table for about 15 minutes and as a result, we didn't have time for desert before the show! The restaurant was not packed so I don't know what happened, especially since the host and our server knew we had tickets to the theater. The waiter was quite apologetic and offered us complimentary desserts after the theater, but we were too annoyed to return. We got our check and left the restaurant around 7:45pm and barely made it in time to the theater. We won't be back -- there are too many good restaurants in NYC!
