Everything about our experienceEverything about our experience there was fabulous, except for the dessert, which was a let-down. The peach cobbler was to have been served hot, but it was still cold in the middle, and the streusel-like topping was a dry powder. It was like eating mouthfuls of flour. My pork chop was amazing and my husband's steak was perfect.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMLobster MondayIt was a great meal 6/9/2013. We ate early. The staff was attentative and helpful. The meal was perfect. The lobster salad had an excellent light dressing not to overpower the tender lobster and crisp french beans. The main course lobster was wonderful in taste. The portions were great. Not too filling but enough to get all the flavors. Great meal. Will go to other lobster Monday..6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMReally nice dinner. RegardingReally nice dinner. Regarding my choosing good for service, is NOT a reflection of our server, he was great. But clearly there weren't enough servers on that night, because things did take longer than they should have.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent serverJeff was an amazing waiter that evening, my date and I loved him to pieces and would love to have him again! The food was to die for as well, best Coq au Vin and pot roast I've had in ages! Cheers!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent STEAK!!! Low Key AmbienceThe steak and the service here was excellent. Our waiter was great, I haven't had great customer service like that in a long time. He checked on us, smiled, made good suggestions and was very pleasant. The steak was amazing. the Kansas steak was well worth the $50. No complaints but valet should be free when you're paying that much money for food. Their restaurant needs an ungrade bad. It's just not hip or cool, sort of blah. Other than that I highly recommend this place.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGood experienceJar is a fun spot - definitely worth checking out. Great service, food is what you would expect for an upscale steakhouse. And you may even spot a celeb or two5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMMy new favoriteI'm allergic to gluten and Jar was very friendly to my stomach! The food was amazing and I will not complain about the pricing either because I do think that it was both fair an reasonable. The overall ambience was lovely and we had a wonderful server (Geoffrey), I wish I could eat here for every meal, every day and I also know where I will be eating for my birthday this July. Lastly, the lobster cocktail and signature pot roast... I hope that you decide to put the lobster cocktail on the menu for good and never ever remove the pot roast as well as the crab deviled eggs.
Thank you so much for making it such a wonderful experience and I will definitely be back!
(I brought my friend here for his birthday and he is also in love).5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGood recommendationJar was recommended by a friend as a place to check out while we were in LA. We enjoyed our food and our server was quite personable. It's not cheap but the food and ambiance are good. It was quite noisy when we arrived but got better as tables started to leave. Surprisingly it cleared out early for a Saturday night but I may be judging it against NY standards.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMStill my favorite restaurantStill my favorite restaurant -- great food, service, and straight-forward no nonsense atmosphere4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMwe had a great birthday brunchwe had a great birthday brunch for a perfect party of 6!

We went for my birthday and was hoping for a bit more of a fun place.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMSOUNDS niceEverything was better than I expected, the food, service, and atmosphere. All though a little soft,chic music would help quiet the chatter, and create a more romantic vibe.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest food of it's kind inBest food of it's kind in LA. Ranks among the best of it's kind in the US. Consistently good food served by friendly and competetent waitstaff. Suzanne Tracht is well known but should be ranked among the star chefs.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent especiallyThe food was excellent especially a stuffed squash blossom that was fried in a tempura batter. It is a generous appetizer with three fried blossoms attached to the baby zucchini. We had a quiet table in the corner and since we had reservations in the early evening, it was much quieter than a prior visit which was incredibly loud.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThey make you feel like familyThey make you feel like family a special place with a great vibe despite the minimal decor3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMMe and my husband had oneMe and my husband had one of our best dinners here. Service was friendly. Ambience was comforting and natural. Only the freshest ingredients are used, you can taste it with every bite. Will be attending again very soon;)3/30/2013 12:00:00 AM"Just Another Restaurant" - really?JAR provided us with a wonderful experience all around - perfect for our anniversary dinner this year! Felt like Old Hollywood tastefully mixed with Modern - both food and ambiance. re: Old Hollywood - We went for the Chef's specialty braises and both loved our choices. I had the coq a vin which was scrumptious - even though I typically don't care for dark meat. re: Modern - The salad with lobster, avocado and grapefruit as well as the baby peas with tendrils were both delightful additions to our meal. The waiter mentioned that there were several "regulars" dining that Friday night, and I thought that if we lived closer, we might become "regulars" too.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I dined at JarMy wife and I dined at Jar on a Wednesday night. Business was brisk, it was not the crazy rush of Saturdays. Jar delivers on the concept. It is a steak house, the menu is a modern take on the traditional model, but the staples are there to be had. The wine list is to the point and not overly priced considering the fact that the emphasis is on "big" wines. We had the special salad of the night (Pear and Humboldt Fog)perfectly balanced vinaigrette, the knife cuts were somewhat inconsistent, but regardless, it was a great appetizer. I add the dry aged Kansas steak which was perfectly executed and so was the bistro steak. The sides were simple and again perfectly executed. Dessert, although unassuming, were a pleasant surprise. Good service.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food, cooked toOutstanding food, cooked to perfection.
