    I have wanted to try this place for a while now. Went the other night with a friend and enjoyed the time there. My only issue was the price. Dinner for 2 with one drink each was $190 without a tip. That is just crazy. Will probably not go back but if you enjoy good food without a concern for the tab..by all means go.

    The food is truly chef inspired! There were four of us and each person voted Jar's food the best of the weekend.( and we had a weekend of good food) Deviled eggs with crab, excellent start. The Pot Roast, the duck fried rice, the lobster coctail....the butterscotch salted carmel... you name it, it was awesome. We would be back to try all the other menu items we didn't eat on this trip. Service was A+.

    I have eaten at Jar since it opened, although its been a year since i was last there. While its always been good, this recent visit was remarkable. We were 6 people and ordered quite a lot of food, and very diversified. While it has a certain reputation for its meats the other dishes we had, especially the fish special was beyond anything we could hope for. It was also my wife's birthday and she loved it, as did our guests. I also wanted to mention the service was outstanding, and the staff made us feel even more special.We are big foodies and continue to try all the new places popping up in LA, at the end of the day Jar remains a favorite. Its definitely a go to place foe me today and most probably in the future.

    I love eating at Jar and go there for special occasions. The pot roast was excellent as well as the side dishes. The salads were a little disappointing. The Caesar salad dressing was not as good as I expected and the Iceberg salad was missing bacon crumbles otherwise it was good. Next time we will skip the salads and try other dishes. I still love the place!

    My family and I were disappointed with the porter house that we shared, it had striffen running throughout, making it a tough piece of meat to cut, let alone chew. I will say that our server went above and beyond, dealing with various food allergies. Plus she was very sweet. The ambiance was nice, but overall the food did not live up to the price.

    We had not been in awhile. We had a refreshing gimlet made with crushes cucumber, a glass of a good Gruner Veltliner, a special salad with haricots verbs and prosciutto (specials made it hard to choose), oysters, the famous pot roast, and the famous pork chop. Pork chop was overlooked but they replaced it with a perfectly cooked one immediately. By going early we avoided the noise. Very nice time. Will return.

    We checked out a high-end place in BH for dinner, but based on its high prices we decided to sample a few small plates and cocktails and move on to something more substantial. Jar was just the ticket—a mix of substance, ambiance, quality, and the fact that these days you can get in at 9PM on a Saturday. Our steaks and pork chop were perfectly cooked and reasonably priced (less than you'd pay for at Fleming's, Ruth Chris' or Mastro's). They seem to rethought their wine list in recent years to make it more accessible and price friendly. I'm assuming to make it a place where regulars can go to and not feel pinched. We brought our own wine after making sure they didn't carry the same bottles. Finally, the service was good and really helpful.

    Service was terrible. Took 25min to receive bar drink and then I was asked if I wanted to straight up or on the rocks ! Either over worked (appeared to be alone)or the wrong person for the job. Asked for some bread to accompany lunch. My companion is diabetic and couldn't eat the the sweet bread. " we don't serve bread til dinner ". I insisted that if bread was available at dinner then certainly they could toast a slice for her. The bread did not show up. I asked one of gentlemen helping her and it was out immediately.

    Had another wonderful meal at Jar! They have a small, well thought out menu of delicious American comfort food -- love the pot roast and baked salmon -- served in a room that looks like it's straight out of MadMen. Really great cocktails & desserts, too. The highlight of this visit was our waiter -- I relied on him to make several choices for me. He was friendly, attentive, very decisive in his advice and didn't steer us wrong.

    The best Manhattan in town! The Kansas City steak (bone in) is always cooked and seasoned to perfection, if you enjoy it med-rare. The motif in the dining room is minimal with a hint of retro. Nice ambient lighting in warm tones create a relaxed yet spirited vibe. Our server Nicole provided exceptional service. (pretty , great smile knew the menu) My love-story and me shared a few dishes that she recommended, when the food arrived she severed our dishes so gracefully that we commented on how she would glide from table to table so effortlessly…serving, pouring wine and taking drinks to and from…We didn't realize she was at the table. ( the Serving Whisperer) We will return most definitely, one of our favorite restaurants. Yummy!

    NO wonder Jar is on Jonathan Gold's list of best 101 LA restaurants. The salads (white peach/manchego) and calamari were very fresh with beautifully balanced flavors. The Asian-inspired pork chop was the best pork chop I've ever had. My husband loved his steak and chocolate decadence dessert. The butterscotch pudding lived up to its high recommendation. Our server Nicole was very knowledgeable about the food and made great suggestions. The entire experience was outstanding.

    The staff need to be more observant, care a little more about what they're doing and communicate more effectively. We were not offered bread and when we asked for some, it still did not arrive. Menus and wine list sat on our table through the first course. When the server asked if I'd like ground pepper on my salad, he gave the peppermill one turn and went on to the next person at the table. My credit card fell out of the sleeve when the server was taking it to ring up my check. The host found it, brought it to my table, telling me it was on the floor by the bar. My server waked up, grabbed it and said she'd been looking for it. Little details like this cause the diner to wonder if the staff know what they're doing.

    The food at jar is amazing! The fish, pork and beef entrees are all delicious and there is a wide variety of appetizers and side dishes to choose from. You can't go wrong with any of them but the purple yam, brussel sprouts and French fries are particularly good. You can't leave with out trying the butterscotch pudding as an end to the meal. Highly recommend this to anyone looking for a delicious and interesting meal.
