    Took 10min to get a waitress just for water and it was not busy yet. The food tasted like salt , the steak was all fat , drinks where good. They did take of the price of my steak dinner and the waitress was friendly. Its a Whisky Bar , that's why the drinks where good.

    The service was decent, I had the filet and for being a filet it was probably the poorest grade of steak I've ever had... It was actually fatty so who even know if it was actually a filet. Our waitress was pleasant and so was the hostess.

    Food and service was great! Server offered to split our starters which was a nice touch. She paid just enough attention to us so that we felt attended to, but not so much that she was interrupting. We ordered the Bone-in Pork Chop with blackberry BBQ sauce, white corn polenta cakes & braised greens and Gilled Flatiron Steak (rare) with romesco sauce, broccolini & crispy potato cake. The chop was perfectly done! Moist and tender and the blackberry BBQ sauce was a very nice surprise. The polenta cake was crispy on the outside and soft on the inside – not grainy at all. Steak came rare and the crispy potato cake made a nice bed to soak up the juices. The romesco sauce was smokey, but not overly so.

    Unfortunately, I was very disappointed in my entree. My friend and I both spent about $30 each on the lobster dish. The lobster was tasty, but unfortunately, the crab portion was almost inedible as it tasted a bit odd and certainly did not have the amazing taste I expect from crab. The crab was chopped up so fine it lost about all of its integrity and taste. In addition, I was a bit surprised that a $30 lobster dish came with potatoes that seem to be just boiled as they had no flavor or seasoning and half a boiled corn on the cob. It was definitely not the the sides I expect from an establishment such as your, especially when ordering lobster.

    My husband and I went here for his birthday. I had a flatiron steak and he had the ahi tuna. Both were cooked to perfection. The oysters we had as an appetizer were delicious - as if they were just plucked from the ocean. We split a wedge salad. Again a perfect addition to our meal. The noise level when we went was almost over the top. Quite hard to talk to each other at times. I suggest they look into some kind of ceiling baffling to absorb the noise.

    It was our second time going and the menu was totally different. First time I had chicken this last time steak. The food was incredible, our server was amazing we even left seeing a movie he recommended. Drinks were sensational. This is such an outstanding restaurant and I have enjoyed it the two times I've gone. Can't wait to go again.

    It was a typical bar atmosphere. That was no surprise but the menu had the usual bar food but also had more upscale offerings like stuffed lobster. The whiskey list was impressive and priced fairly. The food was very ordinary and the lobster in particular was very dry, very small and overpriced. In short, have a dram and call it a day

    We had a drink in the bar before dinner. The bartender was polite and the noise does carry. It was to be expected. Next was dinner. The servers couldn't be less interested. No greeting, where are you from, is it your first time here, nothing to generate a pleasant exchange. My wife's lobster was chewy and almost tasteless. I had tiger prawns and pasta which were OK but no "wow" factor. This was on a Thursday evening. I must say the food is overpriced with a limited menu. If you are on a budget and quality matters this isn't the place for you. If we hadn't been spoiled from eating at Stark's Steak House the night before this might have been a better experience. Thank goodness for the wine bar a few doors down after we left.

    Very loud with a large group nearby, but not obnoxious. Couldn't get our 4 steak order correct twice. Rare with sear, to medium rare when all were ordered medium. Never did see pink. Got apologies, but wanted a good dinner. Felt we had $100 salads, which were good. Waitress/Manager was apologetic, but tried to make excuses for the kitchen's blunders. Truly, this experience was on the lower end of my dining out. First thing is to get the orders right before anything else. Dropped the ball on this occasion, 5/19. Based on dining experience, I really can't recommend this establishement to my friends.

    3 of us came for a man's "B-Day" celebration in search of enjoying a "whiskey" tasting in both drink and food. Drinks were fair but the meal was very disappointing. We were steered towards the salmon and flank steak by our server … both over cooked and bland … not as described on the menu. Where was the whiskey sauce??? Our order was goofed up, extremely late and random people brought over our meal portions. Server never checked on our meals. The support staff kept clearing our entire table leaving us without our utensils for eating several times. Told dessert was on the house for our inconvenience, however, was charged for 1 dessert. No candle for b-day boy. $180 later left feeling hungry … over priced for poor service and food.

    I don't believe this establishment gets enough media exposure. It's a unique concept and it's over all experience factor is very good. The staff are excellent and knowledgable. It has a Whiskey bar and if one is adventurous with that form of libation, it's a must go to place. The food is good. Their house specialties are really excellent. I would hope that they would always be looking to improve so they can go the extra bit to make it 5 stars instead of 4. Having said that, I certainly don't need 5 star dining every time and this is close enough that it's permanently on my culinary radar.

    The food was very good, although some might find the menu somewhat limited. We did not find the BLT salad as "wow" as others have noted, but it wasn't bad either. Nice ambiance and our server was attentive. Music from the bar can be a little distracting / annoying, but the overall level of noise was fine. This place may not blow you away, but we don't think you'll leave disappointed.

    I went with a group of 9 on a Saturday night. Our table was ready on time. Service: Our servers were nice. They took our group picture without complaint and I believe all the orders were correct. Food: Pre-Fix menu left something to be desired. I had the potato and leek soup to start. Straight-forward, decently seasoned but nothing special. Fore entree the grilled chicken with white corn palenta and braised chard. Palenta and chard were the best parts of the meal. Desert was another straighforward dish, strawberries and rum pound cake. Drinks: TONS of Whiskey to choose from including whiskey flights. The Kentucky Tea was refreshing an well made. My friends enjoyed well made Manhattans. The Ken Wantanabe Martini was very interesting.

    We chose to visit Jack and Tony's as one of only three places we dined during Sonoma County Restaurant Week for two reasons: the tasty menu and the 200+ choices of whisky. My husband had the potato-leek soup, and the Scottish Salmon, both of which were perfectly prepared. I had the BLT salad and the chicken breast and polenta; the chicken breast was moist, and the polenta, I think, was pan fried, as it had a nice little crust to it. Dessert was fabulous: strawberries rum cake & Chantilly cream. My husband had the Butterscotch Pudding with snicker-doodle cookie. Both, perfect and yummy. A bit pricey for our normal eating out experience, but I would go again for a special occasion, as the food was so good and the service impecable.

    We visited during restaurant week, it was our first visit to Jack and Tony's. The food was excellent. We both had mixed drinks and they were unique and fun. I would definately do it again. My one disappointment - I had coffee with dessert and the coffee tasted like diner coffee. I would have expected something a little better than Folgers or whatever they were using.

    We had dinner at Jack & Tony's for the first time as part of Rest. week in Sonoma County. Overall the food was good. It felt a little assembly line arranged. Nothing special in presentation and our server even told us the goal of the menu was to get us in and out so no substitutions. Felt a little strange on a Monday night with many empty tables (when we arrived). A large party did show up about half way through our meal but our service did not suffer. I look forward to going back and ordering off the main menu in the hopes it will be presented a little differently.

    We enjoyed our visit last year but unfortunately this year not so much. The food was tasty, the service very rushed. 2 huge parties were due a 1/2 hr after us, and the waitress really rushed us, not that we were dawdling. Once the large parties came in we could barely hear each other. My husband wanted the pre fixe meal but with regular potatoes rather than the sweet/regular potato mix. Our waitress said there was no way they would substitute and suggested he order everything off the regular menu , costing $13 more for the exact meal without the sweet potatoes. Afterwards I felt she could have suggested a side of potatoes at a fraction of the cost, but we felt so rushed to order we just went with it and paid the extra $$.

    Tried Jack and Tony's for the first time and were unexpectedly surprised by a fine dinner. It is in Railroad Square and weren't too sure of the neighborhood. But, the service was excellent and the restaurant is very nice inside. The BLT salad was great as was the potato-leek soup. The salmon special was delicious with the grilled asparagus.

    The restaurant was closed, with a sign that said "closed for regularly scheduled maintenance". We were upset, but went to another place, Jackson's, which was just fabulous, so it worked out well in the end. (I would not recommend this place until I actually eat there.) When I got home I had a phone message from Jack and Tony's saying they were closed due to a death in the family. I appreciate they phoned, and had I been home to take the call our visit there would have been less confusing.

    We had an early dinner New Years Eve prior to going to a 6th St Playhouse.show. The food was very very good but our waitress really made the evening enjoyable. Sorry I did not get her name but we were seated in the first booth by the front window and she wore a funny New Years head thing with a big feather. The restaurant was busy and hectic, but her her attentiveness, friendliness, and professional service made for a very pleasant dining experience.
