    One of the best if not the best steakhouse in Toronto. Fantastic selection of different steaks, cuts, aging, and region. Tremendous appetizers including Caesar salad prepared at your table and beautiful U6 shrimp cocktail. Steaks were all amazing and done perfectly. Service was spot on and I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who is in the downtown Toronto area.

    This has been our go-to spot for Birthdays and Holidays for several years now. There is literally nothing on the menu not worth ordering, and the table-side-made Cesar salad dressing can't be beat - and the bacon! Oh my. Their steaks are, of course exceptional, but so also is the knowledge of the waitstaff. They are eager to explain the differences between the as many as ten (!) different sources of Beef on the menu, as well as an exceptional wine selection. Another wonderful sign of a great location is that they don't hide their dry-cured meat - it's right on display on one wall in the dining room, showing you all the meat that they age in-house, as well. I'm a huge fan, and I'll be sending people here whenever I can. :)

    I made a reservation just over 1 week ahead to be able to get in on a busy Friday night (a party of 4).We were right on time, waited about 10 min for our table,not a huge deal.I had the infamous Cesar salad,it had a bit of a sour taste.I ordered a steak medium,I'm not a steak connoisseur but it was cooked exactly like my husband's med rare steak.The problem was corrected promptly.Overall I found the experience average,and considering how pricey it is, and with so many options in the city, I failed to see the value or what the hype is all about.My husband ate here about 3 weeks ago,and also felt this experience was not as good as that one.Perhaps it was a one off thing.Still at this price point,I expected better.

    We had the most wonderful dining experience at Jacobs & Co Steakhouse. The serving team made it so seamless, our glasses were continuously filled. The menu and types of meats were explained and our orders prepared perfectly. The cesar salad was prepared at our table expertly, it is all in the wrist. The steaks were delicious just as we asked. Save room for dessert, we had the 12 layer chocolate cake which was very rich. And my fav was the Almond flour cake and raspberry sorbet. To continue our experience we were each given a muffin for breakfast, which was also very good.

    While there are a few "good" steakhouses there is only one at the top: Jacobs & Co. If you think you know all about a great steak they will prove you the opposite. They even know what the cattle had as food and what makes the difference. Combined with a great service in the whole team (well trained) it makes a special evening. Our special thanks to Jose - we had a more than a great evening. A special note to the team making the Caesar salad - it was an unforgettable experience.

    Their steaks didn't blow me away as expected from reading previous reviews. I had the California 8 ounce strip loin, which was tender, but lacked in flavour. I honestly could have made a tastier steak at home. This place is just above average and overpriced. If you are looking for a place to celebrate a special occasion, look elsewhere. I celebrated my birthday there and won't be returning. The best parts of my meal were probably the popovers and chocolates cheesecake. Even than the food was just above average.

    I was overwhelmed with the service, attention and time given to me by the chef, who caught me looking at the meat ageing window display. He took his time to explain to me the various meats, origins, flavours etc.... and when he understood I was there for a meal and then to catch a flight and totally undecided on what I should order, he made a special plate of three different cuts and meat origins for which he carved to separate pieces from two separate T bones and a piece of a ribeye . On top of this I couldn't believe what he charged , much less than what it would have cost to have any one of the three cuts. Amazing overall experience. Was at Harbour 60 the day before, no comparison at all. J is no 1.

    I took my spouse here for his Birthday. service was great and food was excellent. We were given great introduction to variety of steaks and enjoyed the Kobe steak - best ever! The wine list was extensive but too difficult to read in low lightening. Our waiter was most helpful in making suggestions. I would return but would be for special occasion as it was quite expensive but we did enjou 2 appetizers and dessert as well.

    My husband Blake decided to try the waygu beef after it had been described to him by our server David. He took one bite and told me he saw Jesus! He thought the waygu beef was out of this world. It was fantastic. I thought the while experience was excellent. The service, our server, the atmosphere, the menu - deserves more than five stars. It is well worth the extra money that you will spend on your meal but the service and the food is well worth it. Also they send you home with two cinnamon muffins that are excellent for breakfast. So not only have they ensured that their brand stays with you but while eating the muffin you remember the meal from the night before. Excellent branding and advertising. Excellent restaurant.

    Frequent diner here, but this time there was a notable decline in food & service quality. This is the first time I've given 4 stars to them for Food & Overall. Appetizers - Bring back the classics in the Lobster Bisque and the old Oysters Rockefeller. The new Rockefeller is just spicy enough to overpower the oyster itself. The bisque is missed! Even the tableside Caesar wasn't the same. Steaks - Snake River steaks are my favorite and did not disappoint. Japanese steaks are too fat for my liking. Dessert - The 12 layer chocolate cake was average at best. The ice cream was good though. Service - Same server as another time, but they were stretched far too thin on a Friday night.

    The service was fantastic. We were talking when the tableside salad was being created, so I wasn't watching and they put the tabasco sauce in the dressing (great for my husband, not for me!). When I took a bite and realized it had the tabasco sauce, our server made sure to get things resolved for us, having another salad made up for me (not as spicy this time!). The cheese popovers were a delicious start, and the champagne toast for our anniversary was a great touch! Our server took the time to review the menu with us, giving us information on the different farms that the steaks came from, and went out of his way to ensure everything was how we wanted our meal.

    I wrote a long review but before I submitted, my stupid iPad decided to refresh my page. So I am just going to write a shorter version. Apps - good quality, no real complain Steaks - had 3 kinds. Bone-in ribeye was so lean and full of gristle. For $80, it was garbage. Bone-in black angus striploin was best of the bunch, juicer than the ribeye, great taste. A5 Japanese Waygu was basically butter. Not a fan personally but definitely good quality if you like it. Dessert - alright, overly sweet. Service - so so for a so-called high end restaurant. Lack of wait staff. Price - high for what I got in terms of food quality.

    We have lived in Toronto for 21 years and have basically given up any hopes of having a fantastic meal in a Toronto restaurant that equals what we have had in San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, and Portland. The meal at Jacobs ends that long streak. The food in Jacobs & Co. Steakhouse may be even better than one of the highest rated steak houses in San Francisco.

    From the minute we arrived to the moment we left everything was excellent. I recommend starting off with the Caesar salad which is made table side. We had a steak for two and the duck fat fries which I found to be too rich for my taste. Service was great. Waiter very attentive and best part was they give you delicious muffins for breakfast! A definite must when in Toronto.

    Once you have steak here it's hard to go back. The steaks come on their own with very light seasoning. They'll bring you some sauces and salts but you don't need them at all - they are often flavorful enough on their own. And the service is always stellar. One of my favorite special occasion restaurants.

    We had a fabulous time at Jacob's steakhouse! From start to finish it was phenomenal. Our food was spectacular. Our waiter (Victor) took the time to explain the different steaks and we took his recommendations. Every one of us was thrilled with the choices. My steak melted in my mouth. They asked if they could cut it for us so that it was cut properly and we enjoyed every bite. The caesar salad was great. The mushroom risotto, potatoes gratin and braised onions were all fabulous. The cinnamon bun dessert was scrumptious. The service was incredible. My water glass was never empty. Everybody who worked there truly seemed to care about our dining experience. We enjoyed everything about our experience at Jacob's and we can't wait to go back..
