I am really surprised to hear that it is not there anymore. I have been there on many occasions when I visit NY. I have always had excellent service and excellent food. Yes, the prices were alittle high but I thought it was well worth it.

Pros: Great food, great atmosphere and great service!

Cons: They are gone.

This restaurant is gone. Kaput. No more. It looks like the space might be turned into another restaurant, but right now it is closed.

I will keep this brief. The most economical entree on the flimsy menu I was handed by my Bruce Willis look-a-like waiter cost over $15. The portions were so small it would make even the most calorie conscience person frown. The atmosphere is nice if you like listening to a bass and piano player play jazzy tunes all night; (That was the nicest part about the whole experience by the way). The drinks were very strong, but still over priced and were not chilled properly. To sum it up, this is a nice place to take a girl if you want to impress her with the facade of where trendy, sophisticated folk like to dine. But this place is a total gyp and is not worth it.
Pros:
Free coat check
nice dining music
you never have to ask for a water refill because the waiters are on it
Mashed potatos are delicious

Cons:
Prices were outrageous
Portions were very small
food was not that tasty, expcet the mashed potatoes
waiters lurk around constantly and don't let you breathe

Don't waste your time or money.

Have walked by Jezebel's on many occasions and always wanted to visit due to the unique decor. Despite the other bad reviews, I decided to take a gamble...big mistake. While the service was not terrible, the food was horrible. For $22.95, the fried chicken (which consisted of three very small pieces) was soggy and did not taste very appetizing (Popeye's, as bad as it is, is far superior at a fraction of the price). The side order of white rice, for which we paid an additional $4.00 was undercooked and chewy. The other meal we ordered, the honey glazed ribs, was also unappetizing and consisted of four small pieces of which two barely had any meat (all this for $22.95). The mashed potatoes, for which we spent an additional $4.00 tasted as thouigh they came straight from a box (in fact, I'm certain that they did).

The food was fairly decent, however the service was deplorable. The attitude of the hostess (owner) left a bad taste in my mouth. The decor was somewhat overwhelming and the seating arrangements were not well thought out.

I know that some have had mixed reviews but I recently went with a group of 7 individuals, were seated promptly, food was outstanding! service was GRAND! I definitely would recommend!

Prior to that I went with a friend of mine a few years back and the food and service was still GREAT

The service was horrendous. Out of 6 people, 2 of us had our orders completely wrong and our waiter never came back to ask us how we were doing. The portions were ridiculously small and the food was not that great. The worst part of the night was the hostess who seemed so bitter and unpleasant. And when we thought the night could not get any worse, we had to contend with the hostess and waiter continually harrassing us about their tip. We even caught the hostess talking about us and making fun of our ethnicity. We had such a horrible time.

Pros: The scenery is breath, the swings are nice

Cons: the waiters, the hostess, the food

.

The decor is gorgeous. Our waitress--Christina--was soo nice, even the coat check lady was great.

Desserts were fabulous, the collard greens...I thought I wanted to die. The salomon is okay and the honey fried chicken is mouth-watering (I am from the south, and this was the really thing.)

And the tall, lean guy hanging around? Yes, you recognize from the Five HeartBeats (He is the owner's son)

Pros: Food, Staff, Scene

We were a party of 12. Some liked their entrees, others didn't. All agreed the sides were spicy. I like that! Cannot beat the ambience and decor. Fabulous! Drinks were good too. I agree that the presentation could have been better. Did not get to dessert as it took a while to get the server's attention and we had a show to get to. Very busy place. I would recommend and would go back. Just don't expect to be blown away by food.

.

The server was very rude. He failed to check on my party after we received our food. When we finally were able to get his attention, he failed to followup on our request. We were never asked if we wanted dessert or coffee. The food was terrible. When the food arrived, it was lukewarm and not very flavorful. The quality of the food along with the poor service does not warrant the steep prices. Last, my husband called in our reservation. However when we arrived, we were told that our reservation was not listed and as a result, we had to wait. If you're in New York City, Jezebel's should not be on your list as a " must see".

Everything was fabulous, from the decor (porch swings, comfy living room chairs, and lots of pillows) to grub (outstanding she-crab soup, amazing grits and mashed potatoes, and the best okra I've ever had). The owner is very sweet and very southern!! The prices are a little high, but don't let that stop you from visiting....it's well worth it!

I totally loved this place!! The food was very good and the service was more than adequate! The owner made it a point to greet us and spend a few minutes at our table chatting---which was a very nice gesture. The southern decor was enchanting, as was the cuisine. Would I go back again? In a heartbeat! I will make sure that I place Jezebel's on my "to eat at" list everytime I find myself in NY!

Recently I went to Jezebel with a party of 28 at 11:00 PM when a reservation at another restaurant fell through last minute. We were sent there since their kitchen is open until midnight. THe moment we walked in, my anger with the whole situation melted away. It was such a beautiful restaurant visually, smelled wonderful, so I knew the food would be great, they had a live piano player. Then, we were greeted by the owner, Alberta, who was very warm and welcoming. Soon we sat down to a wonderful, gourmet Southen meal. When most of the other customers had left and the piano player had finished, they started palying some great dance music and we were all soon up dancing away with everyone, including Alberta and we had a magical evening which we could never have planned.

Bad experience - Jezebel, the owner, brought a cat to her restaurant and it had escaped and was running through the back of the dining room. We were appauled as Jezebel and other patrons were on their hands and knees looking for the cat. But had finished our dinner and politely told our waiter
we would take our check at the bar. Jezebel came over to us and, nastily, refuted the cat being in the room for more than 5 seconds - contrary to the customer is always right attitude most restaurants adhere to and paid for our dinner thinking that we would be satisfied and return. After being nasty to us about the incident and making a bigger deal than we were and making us feel extremely uncomfortable, we left. Even before the incident, the food was not worth the price tag, go somewhere else.

This place reminded me of going down south on a family vacation. The atmosphere was great and romantic. The bathrooms at Jezebel's are about the best I have seen in the City, it feels like you are at your auntie's house - clean. The food was good, however they were out of the oxtails and whitings. I had the chicken and waffles and it was tasty. However the presentation of the food could have been better for the price. It was enough but it wasn't pretty and done up.

The fact that this restaurant has been around so long they must be doing something to please the customers. I love the atmosphere, especially the linens in the bathrooms, the expensive food and most of.......the MaryJanes at the door!

Soul food with a French twist is good but not worth the prices this restaurant charges. Sweet potatoes will always be sweet potatoes no matter how French you want to make it. What makes you think you are eating well is the romantic decor and the high prices. Restaurant was a different experience but not worth the $$.

Pros: beautifully decorated, nice music, nice waiters

The food was pretty good, but I couldn't really enjoy it because Jezebel's tries to hard and it shows. Jezebel's metaphor: The restaurant is a person who sports label-drenched clothing (e.g., Prada, Gucci, LV) and accessories to make people think they are more than they really are. How ridiculous is it to have two forms of payment in this day and age?: AMEX and cash!Anyone in the service industry (and I am not), well anyone with common sense knows that this will surely turn away customers. Probably won't go back.

Ok. The staff has a stuck-up attitude, it's expensive, and they don't take credit cards on a dinner for two that easily runs you at least $100. HOWEVER... The food is delicious (I have lived for years in the south and I think this food is quite tasty) and the atmosphere is exceptional. I can't think of a sexier place to take a date for a dinner for two, from the porch swing table seating to the fancy 1920's flapper dress decorations. Go there. Expect to spend. But atmosphere is really what a romantic dinner is all about.

Jezebel was recommended for brunch on Mothers Day. The hostess did not verify/review the menu prices with us nor did they inform us of the logistics of the brunch. With it being a brunch, one would think its all you can eat. My party of three proceeded to fix our plates and the owner mumbled over the guests ears, you better fill up, cause its one plate per person, how unprofessional. My table had four plates and three guests, the owner had the nerve to inquire if there was another person sitting at my table. She argued with me that I would be charged for the additional plate. How rude!! The owner played favorites with which table she would acknowledge. Of course, she overlooked my table. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone, its overpriced and customer service is not a priority. Tyra Rice Marriott Hotel
