Diner Reviews
  • "Staff was uninterested and were bordering on rude. We had several in our party that could not eat bacon but they insisted no veggie subs were available without bacon. Didn't care"
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "I've been coming to Jackie's sporadically over the past six years - crossing town to do so. While I appreciate the service, generally like small plates and appreciate the attention to presentation I am frankly finding it increasingly and unbearably pretentious. I had the scallops - and they were good but I think they were actually cut in half. Again - I have no problem with the concept of small plates, haute cuisine or with paying for it - but it wasn't that great and both me and my date felt unsatisfied. Think my Jackie's run is done. Might drop in for their cocktails before heading elsewhere to eat, but that's about it. Shame since I had sentiment towards the place as one of my first and favourite DC dining experiences."

  • "Air-conditioning made it cold for dining. There was also a mistake in our bill which was quickly corrected"
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "The bulletin should be out - Jackie's menu isn't like it used to be - and not quite for the better. While the hip ambiance was still there, and food quality was high, patrons should be warned of strict portion control! Either change the name to "Jackie's Tapas House" or offer larger portions as entrees - but don't assume that patrons should plan accordingly simply based on a price tag. While our server was very knowledgeable and friendly, service was PAINFULLY SLOW - a 2 and 1/2 hour sitting for 4 people! We dared not order additional items for fear of staying the night."

  • "Group of 8. Most liked their choices. Two felt entrees were way over salted. To their credit, they quickly gave alternatives."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We used to love Jackie's. But in our last two or three dinners, we have found the food not so special and the portions shrinking . My quail first came out uncooked, the waiter took it back, and brought a free appetizer--Brussels sprouts. Nice thought but Brussels sprouts are one of a handful of foods that I don't like. Bring back the old menu and the old portion sizes."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We wanted to go to dinner Saturday and couldn't decide where to go. We have eaten at Jackie's many times. I decided to find something new. Nothing "new" appealed. I checked all the menus of the restaurants I was considering and there was no question: Jackie's was where we were going. Everything we had was absolutely delicious. I had a wild greens salad, then a dish with small sliced tomatoes and feta cheese, and then pork with slices of orange beets. My plain descriptions here do not do justice to the food. The selection of items in each dish and the accompany sauces and seasonings set this apart as a meal to remember. It was a very special evening."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Jackie's clearly has a creative chef, but the night we went, a heavy hand overwhelmed good ingredients. The soft shell crab was fresh and lightly battered, but the accompanying sauce smear was too sweet and powerful for the crab which demands delicacy. The stellar halibut was cooked until dry, the little dumplings tasted like under cooked matzah balls and the petit squash were lost in a coying sauce. The brussel sprouts and quail were a hit!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "The food at Jackie's is almost always exciting, and always a pleasure. We had brunch on Sunday. I had a french toast dish that was a good mix of flavors and textures, a sweet treat that was a great start to my day."

  • "Loved the place...eclectic setting...interesting offerings...fun to experience."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "There's so much to like about Jackie's, among them the change-ups in the menu. You won't be bored eating here, ever! Summer brings an emphasis on fresh fruits, vegetables and lightly prepared fish. The halibut was outstanding and I savored every bite. Fried green tomatoes were crispy, light and full of flavor. The truffle noodles, despite sounding heavy, was not. We polished that off along with the brussel sprouts which are a must-have every time we come. A new addition was a pork tenderloin served with delicately flavored cippolini onions and scrumptious roasted fennel. I can't say enough good things about the serious cooking that goes on here. It's creative, delicious, and inventive and we always look forward to a return visit."

  • "Fun, different, definitely an interesting option for those who are tired of the corporate approach to food."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "I think had we gone on any other night than Monday, we would have given a much higher rating. Monday night is fried chicken night and that is all that is on the menu. Fried Talapia can substituted for chicken. Having a gluten allergy, the evening looked to be a disaster, but the terrific waiter, Collin, persuaded the kitchen to give us the side dish of ribs as a main course. We will try it again on a different night."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "I held a business Brunch at this restaurant. The food was very good. The staff seems a little stressed. It appears that one section of the restaurant could not be seated because it had a foul order and the staff could not identify what was causing it. One would think management would have stepped in to provide instructions on how to care of the situation. Once that issue is addressed I am sure anyone would fully enjoy their experience."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "I visited Jackie's for brunch, and was pretty disappointed in the experience. We ordered the cinnamon rolls to start, but they were very dry, as if they were not freshly made. Our waiter was not the most attentive, so we sat with empty plates and coffee mugs that needed to be refilled. I was surprised that when the waiter for the table next to us refilled his patron's coffee mug, he didn't offer to refill ours. When we finally did get more coffee, it was cold. However, the omelets that we ordered were very good - similar to the level of quality that we would expect from Jackie's."

  • "Jackie's is a great place to go for brunch or dinner. The food is excellent and seasonal. The drink list is as well. If you're looking for top-notch modern American food, it's hard to beat Jackie's."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "If this is not your favorite in Silver Spring then you have not been here. I have lived in SS for 2 years and Jackie's has gone from one-of-a-kind-Spectacular to out-of-this-world-Amazing."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "High prices, small portions. Much emphasis on plate arrangement and creative, sophisticated use of a variety of ingredients. Fine if that is your kind of thing."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We brought out-of-town guests to Jackie's and they termed it "a winner." The prix fixe dinner offered a good selection of first, main, and dessert courses, and each was complex and delicious."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "Very accomplished and inventive plates. Truly a pleasure to enjoy such a well thought out, executed and served meal. We will be back and soon. Very quiet on a Sunday evening."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "We were looking forward to trying Jackie's since we moved to the neighborhood. I had worried about getting a reservation at the last minute on a Saturday night, but I soon realized my fears were unfounded because there were many open tables when we arrived. We were seated right away and the servers were nice, but the prices for the food were unjustified. The waitress warned us that the portion sizes were "tasting sizes" (something we wish we'd known before choosing to dine there) and she was not exaggerating. We thought the prices were a bit high before we realized we wouldn't even be getting a full sized meal! The food tasted fine, but the skimpy portions and high prices ensured we'll never return for another dinner there."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "The service was wonderful; the ambience was lovely. The food was delicious but the entree portions were surprisingly small. "
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "If you are looking for a place with great food & a fun atmosphere were you can try new tastes, this is it! Jackie's does "tasting plates," so you order several dishes and everyone can try a few bites. Our very knowledgeable and friendly server recommended 3-4 plates per person, and this was perfect for us. Expect seasonal ingredients mixed with everything from Wagyu beef and black truffles to staples like potatoes and deviled eggs . Seafood, vegetarian, meats of all kinds all well prepared in surprising and fun ways and beautifully plated. Wine list has some great choices and is reasonably priced. Exterior is unassuming, but don't pass this one by. Great dinner out to celebrate our anniversary. Will definitely be back (with friends)!"

  • "I love the ambiance and intimate feel of Jackie's. From the moment we walked in, we were treated with the best service from the host to the bussers. The retro decor really made this place fun. Two thumbs up for tempted our pallets."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "In Jackie's defense, I made reservations without looking at their menu. When I showed up with my date, there was nothing on the menu I wanted to eat. There were no normal options, everything had a weird name. We had a nice bottle of wine and the service was good, but neither my date or I would return there."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "portion sizes are small but tasty. Char, halibut, chicken liver pate crostini, goat cheese cheese cake, and passion fruit mango dessert were standout. Waiter was knowlesgeable about menu and helpful in guiding out choices. Prices are high for the portion sizes and not entirely in line with the neighborhood."

  • "Six of us had a family celebration dinner on a weeknight; we were seated quickly, and the menu was explained (new owner & chef since we'd been before). All the plates were very good, service was good and attentive. Only issues were (1) a rather chilly temperature indoors, when it was very nice outdoors--maybe catering a little more to the working staff in the kitchen, rather than the customers; and (2) a noticeable lack of total vegetarian dishes on the menu, which is surprising for Silver Spring these days."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "My boss told me I would "love" Jackie's. Met a good friend for a week day dinner on a Tuesday night at 7 pm. They offer a three course meal for $27 and I had the fried green tomatoes, sea scallop with foie gras and two tiny beignets for dessert. It was fine. No complaints but I would not be in a hurry to go back. Not sure what that's about. "
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "My lamb belly dish at brunch was delicious and beautiful. It is fortunate that I don't eat large portions because even though the dish is listed as an entree, it is really a small plate."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "This is one of our all-time favorite dining establishments. It's a world-class restaurant that uses fresh, local ingredients and has an enviable wine list and an enthusiastic staff to go with it. Whether sitting at the bar, in a booth or at a table next to the open kitchen, it offers a fun, eclectic and welcoming atmosphere. The menu changes regularly, so there is always something new and inventive, with a variety of flavors, textures and ingredients to please even the most discerning foodies. "

  • "We have been before at Jackie's, always great, but this time, the service was super slow. The restaurant was half empty, but it took them more than 30 minutes to serve 4 salads/appetizers, and more than 40 minutes for the rest of the food! The food was delivered not at the same time either, so we had to still wait longer to make sure everybody was fully served before we ate together... Not good. What happened Jackie's? The restaurant is not cheap, so we expect a little bit better service."
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "We had gone to Jackie's for brunch before and it was good, but dinner was remarkably good. All of the food was inventive, beautifully presented and, most importantly, delicious. The halibut was perfectly cooked; fresh, crisp, lightly marinated artichoke hearts were great; and lamb belly (think lamb version of pork belly) was wonderfully complemented by lentils and a sunchoke puree. Ambiance is very casual, with modern decor filling a former auto repair shop off Georgia Ave. I'll be back soon."
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "This was my second visit and won't be my last. I suggested to friends we meet in the bar. There is a separate bar (Craft Bar) and one inside the actual restaurant. We first tried the Craft Bar but was uncomfortable and seemed a little seedy so we went to the restaurant bar and it was perfect."

  • "Had a great time celebrating my mother with my sisters at Jackie's! Great ambiance and wonderful service! The food was delicious - and had a variety of different options for the brunch menu. Good portion sizes for the price. Would definitely recommend to a friend and would come back for round 2!"

  • "Been here on Easter and Mother's Day, and its a great place. Food is yummy, decor is fun, and service is great. I especially recommend the lemon and thyme donuts! The coffee is also excellent!"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Jackies is set up almost (not quite) like a tapas place, in that they offer smaller plates and encourage sharing. We each ordered 3 plates and that wasn't overwhelming. Food was outstanding. Price was not cheap but now outlandish for DC area. For once, I felt that the price was commensurate with the food. Wine selection was also pretty good with some neat fines like a Barolo for 45! They also had a cool bar with a great list of coktails. Would highly recommend for a special occasion and some fun. "

  • "The decor and ambience of the restaurant was great. The service is prompt, attentive and the server was knowledgeable about the dishes. Service times were good and noise level was low allowing for conversation. Our server advised us to order appetizers because as he put it "our entree portions are lean". He was not kidding. I ordered the Arctic Char. It was nicely cooked, with a liitle crispiness to the skin. The presentation was great with the swirls of avocado and the vegetables. I really think that a larger piece of fish and a small serving of potatoes or rice would have been good. The dessert was great (coffee and beignets) 1 order was enough for us to share. I would go again, just would make sure I'm not hungry going in."
