    Overall experience was great. Atmosphere is inviting and social. Food was prepared well and tasted great. One exception to mention is the quality of the New York strip. The steak had an abundance of sinews which is not typical of high quality meats. The Friday night menu is a great idea and has fantastic options to choose from and would be easy for any discerning pallet to choose a meal from. One negative here is the discount gift cards cannot be used towards a Friday night menu meal. Menu pricing is quite high with an average meal (tax and tip) without alcohol coming in at around $50. Add in an appetizer and dessert and a couple will spend $130 easily which is an expensive dinner out.

    I am repeating myself from past revues. Once again, we had a superb dining experience at Jag's. Food and drink were wonderful. Complimentary dessert to celebrate our anniversary was a nice touch.soon, Jag's. Our server Monica attended our every request efficiently and with a smile. The entire staff makes my wife and me feel like we really matter to Jag's. See you soon, Jag's.

    1 issue,Jag's website had popup-buy a $50 giftcard -get added $25.Were ready for the bill, server took our papers to deduct - I mentioned-there were 2-1 for $50 and 1 for $25-the bill came-I noticed that she had forgotten to deduct any of the gift cards - after that she came back and made mention to her that she forgot the $25 one - Oh no she said - here it is ! . I had 3 guest's with me and did not want to make a big deal of it, so I did not look any further. I paid the bill and we went home. A few hours later I took the receipt out of my purse and couldn't find the $25 credit. NO phone number on the receipt,so I had turned on my laptop to find it-phone went strait to voice mail,I got dressed,went to Jags.Manager gave me $25 cash back

We sat in the piano bar, which I definitely recommend. It's a very romantic setting and we had a great time!

    It was just a night out to enjoy great foods. Was not disappointed. Started with crab bisque soup (it was delicious, but wish they put in a few morsel of crab meat). Chilean sea bass was cook just right and delicious, but the accompanying garlic mash potatoes were too salty. Chefs need to understand people can alway add salt, but they cannot take out over salted foods. My husband enjoyed the fillet very much, but could not eat the garlic potatoes either, because it was way too salty. We have been to jag many time, and generally the food is very good, especially the steaks. We will definitely be back.

    From the moment we pulled up we no longer had to do anything for ourselves. We had my wife's 90 year old mother with us and of course we had a couple of problems of her doing. The waiter and the manager could not have been more gracious. If money was no object I don't know why someone would dine anywhere else. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

    We don't eat out very often, maybe once or twice a month, and when we do, we like a the quiet and the ambiance offered at the restaurant of our choice and Jag's certainly fills that bill! We had another enjoyable evening last Saturday night at Jag's. Our waitress ( and I'm sorry I don't remember her name) could not have been more accommodating. She did not hover, but seemed to appear just when you expected she would. And as per usual, sometimes my eyes are bigger than my stomach and I had to bring my entire salad home. It was just as good the next evening. We'll be back to Jag's for sure!

    Arrived at 8:05, reservations at 8:15. Sat at bar ordered drinks. One glass had lipstick on it. Sat until 8:30, got up to find hostess to seat us (restaurant was not busy). We were sat at table with menus....had no idea who our waiter was for about 20 mins. Ordered......food was decent. I would say for the price range you would expect a little better service especially if the restaurant is not busy, just not what I have come to expect from a restaurant which is trying to compete with the Ruby's / Boca's / Season 52 / etc. Been to this restaurant about 3 times definitely the worst experience, I'll chalk it up as a bad personnel day at Jags.

    Jags used to have a great special called the "56" but they have raised the price and reduced the options to the point it isn't a good value. SO you are forced to order off the regular menu, which ends up being just too expensive for what you get.

    Dined on 7/18/2014
    My wife and I ate at Jag's and stop in their lounge for a few cocktails and an appetizer before the meal and it took 5 to 10 minutes to get notice at the bar. Once we got served they asked if we would like to see a menu and never came back to ask about getting an appetizer. So we sat at the bar waiting for our table for 30+ minutes without getting another drink or an appetizer, which almost ruined the evening. They real need to add another bartender or 2 to take care of the customers. But the food and service for dinner was great and saved the night.

    Had a nice dinner, but there was a few disappointments. Didn't get to sit in the Florida as requested as it was being used. Would be nice to know that in advance. We should have ate at the piano bar - less stuffy atmosphere. Didn't get the lime lime torte as they were out. Few of the other desserts were appealing on a hot summer day - went for the pistachio gelato - very good - they put a candle on top for me. Our steaks were a notch too well done, but still tasty. Overall, nice experience, but not knock your socks off.

    We celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary at Jags. We have been here before and have never been disappointed. The add on king crab legs melted like butter in my mouth. We ordered the strip and ribeye steaks. Both were grilled to perfection and so delicious. A salad, vegetable and potato is included, so we always have leftovers to bring home to enjoy a second time. Our server overheard us talking about our accomplishments together over the years and congratulated us. He gave us a dessert menu and told us we could order a complimentary dessert. The chocolate mousse cake was heavenly and the plate came beautifully decorated in chocolate writing saying Happy Anniversary. Memorable dining experience.

    We usually frequent Ruth's Chris for a nice filet but found Jags to be just as delicious, if not better. Crab cakes were phenomenal. Sea bass and filet were cooked to perfection. Just enough sides to possibly have a little left over. the creme brulee was spot on with the berry coulis. The Baileys cheesecake cake was a little dry for our liking. We'll definitely return and most likely make this our new place, using ruths just for appetizers and dessert.

    dine4funVIP
    Dined on 6/27/2014
    Jag's is one of our favorite restaurants. We dined last night and all 4 of us decided to order from the Friday Dinner Special Menu. We started with the Tuna Tartar and Balsamic Calamari which were both excellent. The Boursin Berry salads were equally awesome. My wife and I ordered the filet with red wine demi-glace which was prepared to perfect temperature and excellent as always. Our two guests chose to go with the Branzino, which is described as Mediterranean Seabass. That turned out to be a real stretch. For anyone who has had Jag's Chilean Seabass, there is none better. The Branzino was more like a tasteless tilapia and an real disappointment to both guests. This was a rare miss for Jag's, but I would avoid the Branzino.

    The filet was the best beef that I have ever had! It almost melted in my mouth. It was cooked to perfection. The rest of our food was excellent, as well. The house dressing was so light and tasty. Our server Jeff was outstanding. He was always there when we needed him. He was very patient with us explaining menu items and answering our questions.

    Took a group to Jags for dinner on a Saturday night. Our group consisted of 6 adults and 6 kids. My mother is very particular about her seafood selection, to say the least. Michael and staff gave her and the kids the special attention they needed. My last visit about a month ago, Michael had the chef prepare an off the menu seafood special for mother that was off the charts. Thanks to Michael and the staff of Jags !!!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 6/20/2014
    The food was great. The service was horrible. I had to wait one hour for my salad to come. Then after waiting one hour for that, I had to wait another hour for my food to come. My order was wrong but the chief did make it right by sending out extra food for me.
