Diner Reviews
  • "Was weary about making this reservation because I haven't heard much about Jacks's but I was beyond surprised with this restaurant. It was perfectly located across from our parking lot. We were a group of four who shared about 7 different Tapas and the good was delicious!!!! Each tapa better than the other! The waitstaff was excellent and very kind...would recommend this hidden gem to anyone. Looking forward to going back. "

  • "I found this place when I was walking to work. I thought it was a strange place to have a restaurant, so I peeked in and thought it was a really nice looking place. I told my girlfriend that we should have lunch there that day and we did. I loved the food, everything was so fresh and tasty. The workers are really wonderful and friendly. They make you feel comfortable. I have since then have had dinner there several times and I have told my friends about Jack's."

  • "Ours was the perfect pre-theater experience upon our arrival to New York. The location, as well as overall experience, was ideal for introducing our 9 year old grandson to Broadway. His sandwich was fine. We 3 adults split one 3-item and one 4-item small plate combo. We enjoyed a fine variety of styles flavors and textures. Polished & gracious Maitre D, young, energetic & attentive wait staff. Lively bar with varied draft selection. Nice wine list. Very, very happy to have stumbled upon Jack's. Would not at all hesitate to go back again."

  • "The brunch menu is superb- a varied selection of delicious dishes. The service is wonderful. The waiters are very attentive and eager to please. I come here for brunch whenever I am in the city for a matinee and am never disappointed! A relaxing delicious meal every time!!"

  • "We were visiting New York for the day and the restaurant part of Jack's was very romantic looking.. But the steak my boyfriend ordered and the chicken I ordered had no flavor. :( Other than that the waiter's were outstanding along with the host."

  • "On a busy evening, food was great but service staff - including the manager - were difficult and disorganised. If you can bear the staff, it's food worth eating!"

  • "We came in running late for a theater show and expressed our time constraints to the staff. They were very accommodative and made sure we were in and out in plenty of time to make the show. The staff was very friendly and didn't skip a beat with our situation. On top of that, the food was fantastic. The grilled salmon was cooked to perfection and delicious. The crusted tuna special was also delicious. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a bite to eat in the theater district."

  • "The pasta dishes we had promised "house-made" sauces and yet it tasted like it just came out of the jar. The chicken tasted microwaved and was chewy and some eve dark meat. It was way overpriced and to not even offer free drink refills is ridiculous. $30 for a pasta dish after tax and tip is just dumb. The food quality was less than average. I would not suggest this to anyone. Nor will I ever return"

  • "I feel lucky that Jack's is near my office, since it really never disappoints. Especially in an area where it's not easy to find quality, well-prepared food for a price that won't leave you with regrets. The menu is incredibly varied and I have yet to come here with someone who could not find something they really enjoyed. The host(s) are always friendly and make you feel welcome and the service can be a little challenged in this very busy place, but is always very friendly, knowledgable and competent. It should also be noted that the kitchen staff performs a minor miracle producing such a variety of dishes in an always appealing presentation and in record time."

  • "I gave this restaurant a 4 because it is one of the better restaurants close to Port Authority. Service was attentive but not that friendly. Waitress seemed annoyed because we took our time but we were a group of 5 girls that hadn't seen each other in almost a year. There were other empty tables so not too sure why she felt the need to rush us. Food was good. Nothing over the top but solid. Tapas portions were VERY small but entrees were a good size so made up for it. Prices average."

  • "My co-workers & I decided to celebrate the Holidays at Jack's. Good eclectic variety of food choices. 2 of my co-workers always go to Jack's for special occasions. The prices are reasonable for the quality & quantity of each dish. I had the English cod which was very fresh. I couldn't stop eating it & ended up with food coma. One of my co-workers had the chicken pot pie which was beautiful. The pastry looked so puffed & flaky. He "swallowed" the whole thing, not a piece left. I would definitely go back to Jack's."

  • "We were surprised to find out that sunday brunch was not served this past sunday as advertised. Disappointed! Having said that, the lunch that we had was delicious.On another note, we asked for a candle in the dessert since we were celebrating a birthday. We received an unlit candle and had to light it ourselves with matches that we luckily had."

  • "have been to jacks many times and was thoroughly disappointed this time.. is there a new chef..did not enjoy any of the dishes we ordered and all were things we have loved before..too bad"

  • "We were impressed with the beautiful Christmas decor and wonderful ambiance. Portions are generous and prices reasonable. Fresh Mozzarella and Chorizo, both delicious. Filet Mignon was one of the best I've had. Service was top notch. It did get a little noisy, but I suppose it's that time of year. Worth it!"

  • "Less of a restaurant more of a funfair ride. Courses were on the table within minutes of ordering. Turkey was dry, vegetables under-cooked and the steak was terrible... just terrible. Tried to win us back with pecan pie, it was nearly as good as the one I had on the flight over. Avoid at all costs."
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "Went as a work lunch. I can't believe they charge for refills of ice-tea. That is such low over head to nickle and dime a patron for in an establishment that should be high caliber. I would not return based on a matter of principle. Everything else was fair. Disappointing too the service since we did not order alcohol during lunch, I felt the service was less than stellar. Disappointing since it's NY and everything is suppose to be better in the NY restaurant scene! I am from Chicago."

  • "Jack's delivered with great food and fantastic service. We got there late and our waiter made sure our food was out faster than I have ever seen. Everything was delicious! Highly recoommend the empanadas, anything on Naan and the Fried Goat Cheese salad. Yum! Great restaurant in the heart of the theater district and if you part at the Central lot next door it will only cost $10!!!"

  • "The pork sandwich on naan and fries were excellent. The ther dishes (tuna steak and vegetable curry) looked decent. We were at a table in the forn and my chair was backed up to the aisle, so I did get bumped a few times diring the meal as the restaulrant is not very large."

  • "Overall a good place to get dinner before a show. Food and Service was fine. We had reservations , and when we got there our table was ready. Some reviews I read did not like this place, but I guess you cannot please everyone. We had no issues."
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "We went to Jack's after our original dinner plans fell through-- for a last-minute find, it wasn't bad at all. The food (bruschetta and the linguine pasta special) was fairly priced and reasonably good, although a tiny bit under-seasoned. The atmosphere was lovely; decor was appropriate and although the restaurant was somewhat noisy, we were still able to carry on a conversation without difficulty. Service was prompt, but we were turned off by a waitress who got our order wrong and refused to fix it. Not a terrible experience, but I can't say I have any intention of returning."

    Dined on 10/26/2013
  • "I chose this place to hold a business luncheon because it was close to the office. Initially, when we arrived it was fine, but as the place filled up it got quite noisy and almost impossible to hear anyone speak at the table. I felt like we were shouting at each other to be heard. I've eaten here before and thought the food was good, but this time it was just average and sort of bland tasting. Add the poor service on top of that, and I would only recommend this place for off peak hours, or stick with happy hour at the bar."

  • "Lovely waitress was very attentive and made sure our food was delivered timely. She was helpful with the menu which she apparently memorized as she took orders without writing and got everything perfect. Waitstaff overall delivered and cleared courses timely. We had 4 tapas and a dinner salad, all split and it was done beautifully. Will return."

  • "I went here for dinner on a Thurs at 630PM. We tried several of the tapas - cheese, calamari, seared tuna, tuna sashimi. It was all good. The 2 tuna tapas are great and the calamari was a little different than most places (cornmeal crusted) but tasty. The cheese plate was okay - the cheese comes as slices of cheese on bread, as opposed to small blocks of cheese. The service was impeccable. I got there a little early and sat at the bar. The bartender was attentive and friendly and our waiter was the same. Great place to meet someone for dinner after work."
    Dined on 10/9/2013
  • "The portions are huge but the quality of the food is only good. The chicken pot pie -- soggy crust and no veggies, canned chicken and liquidy gravy. The prices are reasonable given the portion size but I think there are a lot that are more value oriented in the general neighborhood. And our server was either poorly training and not very interested or terribly distracted."

  • "Food was excellent. Had blackened New England cod and companions had salmon and pot pie which were good portions and cooked well. Unfortunately noise level prob higher than normal due our own group's contribution."
