As in most of Shanghai, the service at Jean Georges is warm and friendly. Reservations are recorded correctly and you’ll be greeted with a smile, but you might have to remind your waiter to fill your water glass or to bring more pieces of the warm fruit-and-nut bread. However, the house does take great pains to make sure everyone at a table gets his or her food at the same time. In fact, the dishes get swept to your table with great fanfare, each plate hidden beneath a silver dome. Once all the waiters are in place behind each diner’s chair, the glittering covers are whisked off, revealing the sophisticated cuisine underneath.
