- my new favorite restaurantmaxinetteVIPDined on 9/28/2014I've lived in the DC area for over 15 years and just learned about Jackie's a year ago. I have been to all of the fancy restaurants downtown and I have to say that Jackie's !rises to the top. It very well may be the best restaurant in the DC metro area.We went here for both our anniversary and my birthday.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Fried ChickenBarryVIPDined on 9/22/2014If you are serving fried chicken and ONLY fried chicken you should make that VERY clear and should not take reservations. I invited 3 friends for what I thought was dinner and was very embarrassed.
- RediscoveredFoodieBritDined on 9/20/2014Hadn't been to Jackie's for a couple of years and am really glad we went again. A new chef came in a year ago and the menu is completely different. Chicken liver crostini, heirloom tomato salad, noodle and duck all fabulous. If you haven't been recently, definitely worth revisiting.Special Features:
- Shouldn't hsve stayed away so longbenew71VIPDined on 9/20/2014We stopped going to Jackie's a few years ago because the menu had gotten stale and the cooking mundane. Well, no more!! We'd heard there was a new chef a while ago but we just weren't motivated to give it another go. Finally, this Saturday we did, and we were wowed! Adventurous choices, exquisite preparations, great service and the same funky decor we always loved. Waugh beef was off the charts, as were the char, Brussels with olives and almonds, heirloom tomatoes with compressed watermelon and gazpacho foam, deconstructed Caesar salad and peach tart withe creme brule ice cream!! Great service, energy...and a terrific value! WOW!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good but PriceyNoelleVIPDined on 9/19/2014Food was very good but you end up paying just a little too much for what you get. I'm happy to pay for a good entree but it better be well proportioned and delicious, rather than too little meat and too much vegetable for balance and just this side of salty. Again, very good, but would be better at $5-$10 cheaper per plate.Special Features:
- Nice evening!CNB1VIPDined on 9/19/2014Hadn't been to Jackie's in a while so decided to take an out of town guest for a special treat. As always, the food was good! I didn't like the new menu. It wasn't very informative. The server, however, knew it well, and we learned, for example "duck" was the breast and a little spicy; "wagu" was sirloin; "young chicken" was a split chicken pan roasted. I'd like the menu to be more informative. That said, the meal was impressive.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- IngridVIPDined on 9/17/2014This was a birthday treat for me and my daughter. The service was considerate and we were never left alone for very long. Everything was delectable and a pleasure but dessert was saved for home. Try it!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- TERRIBLE YOUNG INEXPERIENCE HOSTESSOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 9/6/2014Arrive on time for my 8:30 reservation,was told it would be a 15 minute wait. After five minutes I notice there were a couple of tables for two free. I ask the young lady about them, she sharply reply it's not about the tables, but the kitchen. We left and will never come back. It seems to me instead of being rude to your customer, I would have sat them and explain that the kitchen was behind and that they are getting dishes out and catching up with the orders. May I get you a drink while you wait. That would have been better customer service. Instead you have me telling friends and co-workers not to go there.Special Features:
- Jackie's is back!EDReatsVIPDined on 9/5/2014After a long slow slide toward larger plates and "comfort food" Jackie's is back with small plates and deliciously layered flavors. We had more or less stopped going because the food was predictably good, more or less comfort food but not noteworthy. We shared an anchovy crisp appetizer (mixed reviews... I liked it a lot), a fresh tomato, watermelon and cheese salad with delicious flavoring surrounding, perfectly prepared grilled char, and perfect duck breast. We like the visually pleasing presentations a lot. It actually does add to the experience.Special Features:
- Amazing!youngluDined on 9/4/2014Jackie's is an amazing restaurant. The food was ridiculously tasty. The staff was attentive, kind and extremely prompt and knowledgeable. The decor was absolutely remarkable. I would definitely go back again and have been telling my friends about this gem in Silver Spring. Loved it!Special Features:
- Thoughtful menu, great experience328944Dined on 8/29/2014Having lived in Silver Spring for a little over a year, I finally got my chance to try out Jackie's for the first time on 8/29/14. The chef's tasting menu is a steal at $45. It was very thoughtful and cohesive throughout. Opted for cocktails instead of the wine pairing. Old fashioned and Sazerac were well-mixes. Service was friendly and unobtrusive. Will be back soon!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- AmazingKianaVIPDined on 8/29/2014I had an amazing foodie experience! The menu speaks for itself! The service was awesome, the food was spectacular!Special Features:
- Made my dayFlocatelDined on 8/23/2014Had to find a place to propose to my girlfriend 'cos I was coming from outta town. The staff was very nice and helpful in making it a memorable day. The icing on the cake was the fact that the food was pretty awesome. Kudos guys. Jackies is really worth the hype.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great FoodRitaTDined on 8/23/2014I hadn't been to Jackie's for many years and was delighted with my meal last Saturday night. My friend and I shared the bone marrow appetizer. Our entrees were the lamb belly and the cobia. All were delicious. My only complaint was the noise. I had asked in my reservation for a quiet table but was seated at a noisy table, although booths were available at the time.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Chef is settling inTampopoVIPDined on 8/19/2014It had been a while since our last visit so we decided to try them out while they were running their 50% off bottles of wine for Aug. They were also extending Restaurant Week, though I don't know that's a great deal since they have a regular prix fixe option. Had the lamb belly which was delicious, though a little small in portion size. Others had duck breast and halibut which were also both very good and portion sizes were more generous. Brussel sprout sides were really good. Also kids meal came with buttered brussel sprouts which contrasted with the menu version. A little heavy on salt, but chef is definitely settling in with flavor balance. Previously I was critical of him trying to do too much with too many flavors. No longer a prob.Special Features:
- much improvedMarthaNellDined on 8/16/2014We were very disappointed when we visited the "new Jackie's" back in the early spring and had not returned until Sat evening (having been a regular for years). We were disappointed earlier because we weren't seated in the area requested and the host was a little haughty, which we thought was silly. Sat evening was very different. The host who took our reservation request earlier in the afternoon made sure we were seated where we had asked, the food was significantly better (the new chef seems to have found his bearings), and our service was good overall. Matt made certain our drinks were perfect. We will start returning to one of our longtime favorite restaurants now.Special Features:
- Wonderful surprise and valueAnivCoupleDined on 8/15/2014We concluded that it had been way too long since we last visited Jackie's. Each dish featured wonderful tastes and visual delights and adequate proportion size. What more can you ask for?Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent as always!YummmDined on 8/15/2014Service was great, food was a hit with all. Very reasonable wine list. This place never disappoints!Special Features:
- Simply amazingOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 8/9/2014There really are no words. The art of food. The flavor profiles were complex and intriguing.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Change is not always goodOpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 8/8/2014Jackie's has long been a favorite "occasion" place for my wife and me. The atmosphere is cute and trendy, and the food has always been top-notch. Sometime between our last and this visit, Jackie's changed to a small plate restaurant. To their credit, all the plates we ordered were appropriately sized for our waiter's suggestion of 3 plates per person. Also, everything we ate was delicious. However, my wife and I both felt that Jackie's was better off before, and we don't think we'll be returning. Previously the menu was always creative, but comforting. Now, plates are "dotted" with sauces and foams. Caviar is used as a topping for potatoes for no better reason than it's fancy. Great food turned into food that is trying too hard.Special Features:
- This is the placeSeaCrisVIPDined on 7/27/2014After a hot day of moving furniture we found this little neighborhood gem. Very ambience. Really delicious and varied offerings. Top notch service. We did the 3 and 4 course meals fixed price meals. A 3.5 course meal would have filled me up so unless you are really hungry stick with the three course. There is enough to sample among a group so vary orders. Pricey but worth it.Special Features:
- Great service, great food!OpenTable Diner Since 2004Dined on 7/26/2014We had not been back to Jackie's since the menu was changed, but what a great surprise. The food was delicious and we had a great waiter. It's fun to share small plates but you can rapidly run up the bill. The wine list is nice with choices for just a glass if you want. Desserts were wonderful!Special Features:
- Fun and unique for SSRickVIPDined on 7/25/2014Jackie's features a seasonal menu that is fresh and delicious. As expected with small plates, the food arrived in waves and we started with the brussels and anchovy crisps, both of which were surprisingly delicious. Next were the green tomatoes. We wish that we would have realized that they were fried tomatoes. That was not our favorite and frankly we didn't eat them. However next were our "main meals", and I ordered the char and my wife had the wagyu. My char was fantastic, but wow, the wagyu was outrageously delicious. I'd order 3 of those next time! That made up for the disappointing fried tomatoes. I also appreciate that our waited was attentive, friendly, and that our wine was very good and my water glass was never empty.Special Features:
- One of the best restaurants in DMVmaxinetteVIPDined on 7/24/2014Jackie's is one of the best restaurants in the DC metro area. Tucked off the beaten path in Silver Spring, you'd never know about it unless you knew about it. Each course is a work of art, carefully and intentionally crafted for cohesive and unexpected delight.Special Features:
- An off evening at Jackie'sgourmandDined on 7/23/2014Sometimes the evil dinner forces just merge. We like Jackie's and the usually excellent food and drinks and especially their any-3-items for $27. After days of family guests we were looking forward to time together and a nice dinner. However, dinner was a mix of small but loud running children, slow kitchen, too many below-par food items, and a really bad cocktail. The waiter graciously volunteered couple of excellent complementary glasses of wine and that did ease the pain enough to keep the neighborhood Jackie's in our go-to list.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Uninterested staff not understandinEnjoyDined on 7/21/2014Staff 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 careSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Changes - better or worseTroubletouristDined on 7/19/2014I'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.Special Features:
- coldfoodielizVIPDined on 7/13/2014Air-conditioning made it cold for dining. There was also a mistake in our bill which was quickly corrected
- UNEXPECTED MENU CHANGE...ReneeVIPDined on 7/12/2014The 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.Special Features:
- Good but unevenbobwVIPDined on 7/12/2014Group of 8. Most liked their choices. Two felt entrees were way over salted. To their credit, they quickly gave alternatives.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Not as great as it wasOpenTable Diner Since 2005Dined on 7/12/2014We 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.
- Where should we go tonight?BuckieDined on 7/12/2014We 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.Special Features:
- Creativity Trumps TasteJoJoVIPDined on 7/5/2014Jackie'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!
- One of our favoritesSteveDined on 6/29/2014The 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.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 6/28/2014Loved the place...eclectic setting...interesting offerings...fun to experience.Special Features:
- A consistently delightful surpriseTerryVIPDined on 6/28/2014There'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.Special Features:
- LauraDined on 6/27/2014Fun, different, definitely an interesting option for those who are tired of the corporate approach to food.Special Features:
- Monday night is unusualElaineVIPDined on 6/23/2014I 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.Special Features:
- Business BrunchOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 6/22/2014I 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Disappointing BrunchOpenTable Diner Since 2008VIPDined on 6/22/2014I 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.
