A word from Jacobs & Co. Steakhouse
In the elegant King West village, Jacobs & Co. is the mature Steakhouse of the next generation. Our décor is sophisticated and timeless and moves away from the stuffy old steakhouse, while retaining the core elements of comfort. The piano bar adds a classy element to the neighborhood and is the perfect compliment to pre or post dinner cocktails. USDA Prime Beef and American Wagyu Beef are sourced from specific ranches across North America and are then finished in the Dry Aging Room in the middle of the dining room. Our menu is reminiscent of a wine list allowing guests to choose beef by age, region, and ranch. Jacobs & Co. also features a raw bar with fresh oysters and marinated chilled seafood. Join us for cocktails after work or a more intimate dinner in our main dining room.

    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.

    Dined on 8/15/2014
    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.

    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..

    I took my lady out for our 2year anniversary and the evening was exactly what I had hoped to have to make her feel special. The ambiance, food, and attention we experienced was a delight and we practically went into a state of catatonic bliss over the coffee cakes we got to take home (and ate the next morning). Dinner was wonderful, dessert was perfect. Time flew by as we arrived at 730 and left at around 930. We definitely we be planning to go back.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/1/2014
    The host was awesone and the place had a great feel. Sever screwed up a few things which all would have easly been over looked if the food was as good as it should have been. My medium rare steak was closer to medium well in parts which I found to be very suprising. Im not really the type to complain but when you expect something great and you get something that is ok it is a let down. At the end of the evening our server could not even settle his own bill, the buss boy did. Our server could barley blurt out a thank you for us as we left. My friend was a lot more upset about this than I was, thought it was worth mentioning though. I give the server a 2 out out 5 overall (more like a 1). All the other staff was pleasent and on point.

    Everything was good, but the washroom was disgusting. I can't believe they allow males and females to share a washroom, clearly males have no sense of cleanliness and its disgusting that women had to use the same washroom. It would be good to have separate washrooms. I couldn't bear the smell of the washroom. I was impressed with the service and the food, but the washroom just completely turned me off. I don't know if i want to go back there due to this experience with the washroom.

    Celebrating a birthday. Ambiance was lovely. Ordered table side caesar salad - a must. Complimentary bread is amazing - soft, light and fluffy. Ordered a PEI dry aged steak and a european sea bass, along with two sides. More than enough food and all very tasty. Waiter was great in telling us to order half portions of the sides as it would have been too much with the salad and bread and main. Will definitely go back!

    This place has become too popular for its own good. It was always expensive. Now it's unmercifully expensive. You're hard pressed to find a bottle of wine under $200. The steaks are good, but again, very pricey, and the sides not as good as they once were.

    Overall it was ok. Quite pricey, nice atmosphere. I took my gf for her birthday and they didn't really do anything special after they said they would. We ordered 1 of the expensive steaks and 1 of the cheap steaks, the cheap steak is pretty bad. The bread is really good. The overpriced caesar salad was nothing special, but everyone appears to have ordered it. Poutine was overpriced and was not good, get better poutine from burger joints. The expensive steak was really good. For the price of their cheap steak I expected the cheap steak to taste better than the kegs at the very least.

Food was great, very tender steak, flavourful, they got all the marbling bang on. The duck fat fries were awesome, the potatoes au gratin were amazing! Desserts were A+! Worse part of the meal was the ceasar salad and even that was pretty good! All around a great meal.

    Jacobs is the absolute best steakhouse in Toronto. Many people have used "best" for many other places, but I will confidently say this is THE BEST. From the Caesar salad made at the table, to the impeccable and memorable service, Jacobs has been, and will continue to be the best! My boyfriend and I now find it difficult to be satisfied at any other steakhouse after being blown away by our meal. Love love love Jacobs!

    What an absolutely perfect evening! Came here for a celebratory dinner date and had a really special and romantic time. Arrived a little before our reservation to grab a drink in the piano bar. The service was impeccable, the wine list was extensive, and the meal was top notch. We are both gluten sensitive and they were exceptionally accommodating. Had everything to share- Caesar salad made right at the table, rib eye, lobster tail, ½ order of mashed potatoes, ½ order of brussel sprouts and a ½ order of an onion dish. For dessert, GF almond cake that was one of the most amazing desserts I’ve ever had. We’ve talked about the meal for days after! Made for a very special evening and will definitely be back to celebrate more milestones.

    A very customer-focused place. GREAT service, no attitude. Welcoming and classy. Our server was really knowledgeable and friendly, but not overbearing. I learned a lot about steak. Yes it is pricey, but this is NOT the Keg. I would consider it a "special occasion" destination. We enjoyed everything we ordered. Large portions, great steak.

    My first time at Jacobs has resulted in a picture perfect Anniversary dinner. I had asked for as intimate a setting as possible & after being seated, our special evening was acknowledged & we were promptly treated to a glass of champagne each. Service was exceptional, always ready to perform their duties, never giving the impression that they were hovering. Steaks were outstanding, as were the sides we easily shared of baked potato, beefsteak tomato and Caesar salad. My partner fell in love with the bread. At the end of the evening, we were brought a plate with 2 desert treats & Happy Anniversary written in chocolate. Amazing! We were sent home with some delicious muffins as well. Thank you Jacobs, we will be back for our next Anniversary.
