About Vong Kitchen
One of the world’s most celebrated Chefs, Jean-Georges Vongerichten, and his son Cédric have opened doors of the long-anticipated VONG Kitchen, a New York grill style restaurant, right in the heart of Jakarta’s bustling SCBD.
The very stylish, open-kitchen restaurant seats up to 162 diners and features an iconic New-York style bar, overlooking the bustle and buzz of the city’s most dynamic and sophisticated district.
VONG’s interior design, created by the award-winning Rockwell Group, together with a carefully selected choice of music and a warm and personalized service, complete the palette for an unparalleled dining experience.
To whom it may concern, I booked a table for two for the Truffle & Caviar Experience for yesterday night (July 10th). As we were traveling, and in anticipation of the event being a popular one given the highlight ingredients, I made a booking in advance on July 3rd. We were looking forward to a delicious dinner, but were instead met with a string of let-downs. When we got to the restaurant, we asked for the Experience menu expecting it to be along the lines of a tasting menu. Instead, we were pointed to a little card on the table. No big deal. Since my partner was already set on the fresh pasta with uni and caviar, we asked to have that order put in while we went through the menu since it was à la carte anyway. Our server said she would double-check with the kitchen that the uni was available. When she came back, she told us that the kitchen had run out of the caviar and the uni, and that the pasta was not being freshly made. Instead, spaghetti (of the dried variety) was being used along with truffles. Not good. We then asked what the difference was between the rib-eye on the normal menu versus the Experience menu, and were told that it was the same dish just with truffles shaved on top. As I saw no point in paying an extra IDR200,000 for truffles of unknown provenance, we decided to skip the Experience menu altogether and go with dishes we were familiar with. I ordered the truffle pizza and my partner ordered the roasted duck, and I told our server that we would put in an order for the lamb shank later on. While the truffle pizza came out as expected and tasted great, my partner’s dish looked nothing like the usual roasted duck that we order. In the spirit of curiosity, we decided to give the dish a shot. This was a mistake. While the duck was cooked perfectly, the dark meat was missing, the polenta (?) balls were an afterthought, and the blobs of sauce tasted like store-bought barbecue sauce mixed with bumbu woku, which overwhelmed everything else on the plate. We did not end up ordering the lamb shank in case it too had been changed. There was absolutely nothing wrong with the original roasted duck recipe; as the saying goes, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. As a customer, I left completely disappointed and feeling ripped off. We came for what was promoted as a tasting menu, and left completely underwhelmed and unsatisfied. At the very least, whoever took our booking could have called us to let us know that the kitchen had run out of the highlight ingredients, and the server should have certainly explained that the roasted duck had been changed. Fortunately we aren’t in the States, otherwise this would have gone on Yelp under the heading “Bait-and-Switch”. Suffice to say, we’ll be giving Vong’s a break for the near future. I hope this email and this message makes it to senior management: Communicate to your customers better, and take a step back and figure out what this restaurant’s identity is supposed to be.
Great ambience, excellent food, & fast serving .. highly recommend for people who love eating great food ❤️👍🏽
good food Great service Nice ambience Used alacarte app for special dining promo
We made a reservation for 8 pm but were made to wait till 8:30pm for our table.
A great place that serves good food with an excellent service.
Really enjoyed my dinner at Vong. Foods quality are superb and innovate. Also ordered their cocktails, love the taste but consider the price, it need some more kick on the alcohol.
Food quality and taste are on par with other restaurants bearing the Vongerichten brand.
Still a 5 star service from Vong Kitchen
We had the 160 dollar truffle tasting menu and looked forward to it. Very disappointing. None of the six courses was memorable and the wagyu was close to inedible. Service was indifferent. Cannot possibly be the case that Jean-Georges would want his name attached to that mewl
Too pricey !
Spending my time with my sister and ordered pizza trufl, capuccino, piza tomato moz, grilled octopus, molten cake, NA passion, balian still, eng bfast tea.. All food delicious Service is nice and good ambience.. Will come back for sure ❤️
The food was great and delectable. Love the wine and ambience. However, I was expecting more variant on the main dishes. Overall, would love to go there again and try out their trout (it was unavailable when we came).
really great dining experience, was genuinely satisfied with the dessert i got for my birthday. loved the great service, friendly waiters/waitresses and delicious food.
Amazing food, very nice restaurant!!! Very good management!!
We had a dinner at Vong Kitchen last Saturday. We ordered Chilled Watermelon and Rice Cracker Crusted Tuna for appetizers. We love the Rice Cracker Crusted Tuna and we expect more goat cheese on Chilled Watermelon. For main courses, we ordered Truffle Pizza, Fried Chicken and Australian Black Angus Beef Tenderloin. The winner is Truffle Pizza. The combination of meltes cheese and egg in your mouth is perfect! We also ordered Molten Chocolate Cake for dessert. The chocolate cake is soft and not too sweet. We love it!
can't wait for the next time to be here again
Excellent food and service!
Very excellent service and great food!
