  • Is J&K Slipping a Bit?

    Ate at J&K recently before a show at the Performing Arts Center. The quality of the meat wasn't up to the usual standards, as both the NY Strip and bone-in Ribeye at our table were on the chewy, sinewy side, although still flavorful. I also don't think my Ribeye was 16 oz. as advertised on the menu. To the restaurant's credit, the 10oz. filets were tender and cooked medium rare as ordered. The salads and sides were all tasty. This has been a reliable BYO steakhouse for us and I would still recommend it; but it's on the watch list now for a potential decline in quality. Hopefully, this was just a one-time disappointment.

    This is a nice option for a BYOB. Not too many steak houses that are BYOB. Food is very good, service is hit or miss but not terrible. Lately it has been very good and so I have been going frequently.

    This byob is the best steakhouse for value in the area. The prefix is the the way to go. Order the filet, the other cuts are not as good. The filet is excellent. Susie, the hostess will make you feel at home. Great find.

    I expected the food to be much better. I had the porterhouse steak and was disappointed in how it was prepared. It tasted OK but was not charred well and did not look very appetizing. I don't usually review places but this was not great at all. Better off at roots. Or better yet take the drive to Don Pepe's Steakhouse

    We live in the neighborhood and really enjoy going to J&K. You are greeted by Susan who has the most wonderful energy! She is always happy to greet guests coming in for dinner. Our server Jeff was very attentive to my special requests (due to a restricted diet) and the food arrived perfectly as desired! The restaurant is a bit loud which can be distracting. Overall our food was really good, the service was also great and we'll be back again.

    The reservation was made for a Saturday evening, unaware of a sold-out performance at the theater. We usually check when dining in Motown, especially on weekends, but oops, didn't! Susan, the most personable and awesome lady EVER, called me to let me know that she would do her best to accommodate my request of a corner table, but a window table was probably not going to happen, due to theater crush. As it turned out, our table was in a corner, and certainly more than ok that it was not near the window. The prices, as has been stated, are very good for a steak, especially if a prix fix is chosen. Very good food and excellent service. AND Susan really made us feel very special! What an asset she is to this restaurant!!!

    The food was good but... I had to find the hostess after 15 minutes of sitting to find out who our waiter was. Once we were acknowledged the good cane out at a Hal hazard rate. I was eating my soup and my steak was brought to the table. The staff was overwhelmed. The food was good so I would give them another try.

    My experiences at steakhouses have been mostly hit or miss over the years. Michael Jordan's and Arthurs's - definitely didn't live up to their reputations. Smith & Wollensky's - pretty good. But J&K Steakhouse...to put it simply, I was wowed! A chorizo appetite that was as good as any I've had at a restaurant in the Ironbound section of Newark. An iceberg salad with onion, tomato, bleu cheese crumbles and bacon that could have been a meal unto itself. A reasonably priced prix fixe 3-course meal with a wonderfully prepared 10 oz. filet mignon. Were it not for the fact that we had to cut the meal short to catch a show down the street at the Mayo Performing Arts Center, I'm confident that I would've enjoyed the molten chocolate cake.

    The food was very good. Salads great and steaks perfect. The service was very poor. We think that the waiter may have been new so he shouldn't have been solo on a Saturday night. We had to ask for bread on the table twice. Asked for wine bucket 3 times but never got one. He never checked on us at any point unless to come and take an order. Thank goodness the food was perfect.

    I should have ordered steak, since this is a steak house. Decided to try the swordfish but it was a little dry. The mashed potatoes tasted a little odd (it was a flavor, not a freshness problem). My husband said that his steak was OK, but not the caliber from the first two times we dined there. Maybe it just was a fluke; my son said his steak was very goo.

    J&K Steakhouse in Morristown was just a random option for dinner with a friend. I made a reservation for 7:30 on a Friday night. Realizing at 7:00 that I was never making my reservation due to storms in the area and traffic, I called to let them know, to which I was told - take your time, we will get you situated when you get here, don't rush, just be safe. When I finally arrived at 8:30 running in like a lunatic scouring the crowd for my friend, I was greeted by the same person from the phone who called me by name and gave me a hug hello for making it in one piece. Even I could forget that my rack of lamb was cooked perfectly or the fact that it's a BYOB (so rare to find in a steakhouse), I will never forget the love I felt that night.

    My friends and I enjoy this restaurant on a regular basis. It is a perfect steakhouse with everything one might expect except an expensive wine least.....which is one of the great things about it. One little glitch I thought on this visit was that although we didn't order starters, our food came out way too fast. Additionally, the standard, included side of fries came after the fact and our ordered side came much later. A comment was made that the spinach took longer to cook........not acceptable, but this is the first time this happened. We're still going back, but the food presentation should be timed a bit better. One note was that the restaurant was quite busy!

    Dined at J & K for the first time this weekend. I found the overall experience to be terrific. Food was first class and the service was outstanding. Best of all, this is the rare steakhouse, excuse the pun, that is BYOB- so I was able to bring great wine to drink. Prices are not cheap, but much less than a standard steakhouse. I would recommend this place and plan to return.

    We had a very poor experience. Went for dinner the Fri. of Memorial Day Weekend. It was dead, about 25% of tables filled. Owner sat in the back corner eating. We had the prix fixe 4 course. My steak, NY Strip was ordered medium rare and came out well done, so I unfortunately had to send it back. We also ordered 2 sides, which we waited for...and waited for...we finally flagged down the single waiter. He ran back to the kitchen, delivered our sides 15 minutes later that were piping hot. Safe to assume he forgot to put them in and they were just cooked. No service on the wine and Pellegrino refills. Waiter did not check back with us. No apologies or visit from the owner re: issues. Why go there when there is Roots down the street.

    We went to J&K during restaurant week. First off, we were not even given a menu for almost 30 minutes! And then finally we were given the regular menu. There was no mention of the special restaurant week deal which is noted on the website. After inquiring about their restaurant week menu we were finally given this secret menu but were advised that it was very limited and that we should consider ordering off the regular menu. We chose to stick with the restaurant week menu because that's why were there. The food was very good and portions were just perfect for us. We left stuffed and satisfied. The slow service to start just left us a bit annoyed. Although our food came out pretty quickly once we ordered.

    Great food, comfortable ambience and terrific service. The filet mignon melted in my mouth and the garlic shrimp appetizer was excellent as well. There were 4 of us for dinner and everyone really enjoyed their meal. It's a byob so the steak house prices are easier to take. They also brought a large platter of yummy French fries to go with the steaks which was a nice surprise. Reservations are in demand here but they do not crowd the tables and they certainly did not rush us. We had a very enjoyable and leisurely meal. Well worth it
