    It was great to come back to Jason's and find that nothing has changed. The food is still excellent - and the feeling like you have found a little secret gem of a place is retained. My husband had the Miso-Glazed Chilean Sea Bass which was excellent - scrumptious. I had the Cioppino - the seafood was cooked perfectly and the broth was refreshingly light yet flavorful. I was worried that is would be too salty, but with the garlic toast for dipping, it was perfect! Thank you for making our wedding anniversary very special!

    We went to Jason's for an anniversary dinner. They were very accommodating to our seating request for a quiet table. I was also impressed with the server's attention to food allergies. The Ahi Tuna was yummy! It was prepared in an interesting and enjoyable way. We also had the gnochi, and it was also very good. Jason's is very convenient to Hwy 101 but tucked into a complex so that is feels private. The ambiance is one of soft colors and a pleasing opulent feel. For the right occasion, I would go back!

    The seafood is always prepared right here and I've never been disappointed. Our waiter seemed like he was rushing us in the beginning and not paying attention to what we said. He brought me pinot Grigio instead of noir and when a couple of us asked for water without ice, it was delivered with a thump as though it was an imposition. He never smiled. Maybe it was a bad night for him but it wasn't professional.

    We hadn't been to Jason's in almost a year, but we were pleasantly reminded of how good their food is, and how nice their service is. Some of the same staff was there, and main menu items were the same. All four of us order a seafood dish, and they were all outstanding. We also had our 15 month with us and they offered to bring him a pasta dish off the menu. The wines were great, and they have air conditioning, which was a nice escape from the recent heat wave we had been having.

    My date and I loved the food at Jason's. We were a bit unconventional in our selections as we ordered both the Baked Salmon and the Portobello Mushroom Pizza to share. The staff neatly divided the salmon entree so that we were each served half of the salmon on a bed of mashed potatoes with asparagus. It was absolutely delicious. The salmon was tender on the inside, while the crispy outside was seasoned with a perfect mixture of unknown spices. The mashed potatoes were amazing; perhaps they might have been a tad too spicy for some, but we raved over them. The pizza, too, was delicious and unusual. Since we were almost full after eating half the salmon dish each, we took most of the pizza home. The atmosphere was warm and classy.

    From the first moment you arrive the warm and welcoming staff make you feel right at home inside the formal dining area. After a cleansing Moscow Mule we made our selection from the half price wine list before tackling the generous menu. Spoilt for choice we elected to have the dragon prawns and halibut ceviche followed by a choice cut 350g rib eye that was cooked to perfection; a faultless meal. To finish we struggled through a palate cleansing desert.

    We have been to Jason's on many special occasions. We are never disappointed. I had the lamb which was a tad over-seasoned but perfectly grilled. Others had fish dishes and pasta. Our guests, who had never been there before, thought it was great and said they would return. Awesome chocolate sundae! We are well-satisfied.

    Disappointed with the food preparation this time. I have been dining at Jason's for as long as he has been open. This last time was not good. Two of us had the halibut. It was over cooked to the point that it was so dry, it was almost like eating cotton. My sister had the lobster. It too was over cooked and tough to chew. Also, the four of us sat there with empty water glasses which were never filled. Sorry to have to say this because Jason is a very good chef but I guess they have off nights.

    Dinner at Jason's was quite good but nothing exceptional. I'll go again and enjoy it, particularly the outdoor patio. Nice ambiance, great small bar, nice dining room. I had a pasta dish, which was certainly good but not great. My companion had a NY steak, which actually was outstanding. Service was attentive and pleasant. Absolutely no complaints, just a good solid neighborhood place.

    We'll definitely be going back. The food was excellent. The menu offers a great variety of dishes including a lot of appetizers. We had the "healthy fries" which are tempura green beans and the calamari. Both were delicious. My wife had the Sea Bass which she announced was "great." My daughter and I split a delicious Cesar salad. We had pizza which may be the best we've tasted outside of Italy. For dessert we had the Apple pie a la mode, it was perfect. The service was friendly and very attentive. My only suggestion is to tone down the look of the dining area. It is elegant with white table cloths and gold fixtures. I think it should be a bit more relaxed to match the staff and the neighborhood.

    Dined on 6/4/2014
    Service and food were so-so. My pasta with shrimp was tasteless - I was hungry enough to eat it, but it was bad cooking, poor ingredients or both. Menu says pasta was "house-made"... If that's true, it was made with the cheapest possible ingredients. Shrimp were rubbery and tasteless, may have been cooked (or overcooked) long before served.. My sons were not impressed with their steaks. However, one person's fish was good. It appears that their main ingredient is mashed potatoes on every plate, which I find incredibly boring.

    We had the lobster cocktail, as well as the tuna sashimi shots. Both were excellent as was the Cajun-spiced rib eye steak. My husband and I split the entrée and they were very generous in the size of the vegetables on both plates. We also went on a Thursday night, so we were able to order wine at half-off. all in all, a nice meal and we will return.

    My son wanted to so here for his 24th birthday, I had not heard of it so did not know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised! Very nice ambiance, outdoor seating option. The food very well prepared and tasty - but the thing that struck me the most and why I am taking the time to write this review is the excellent service. We had a reservation, were seated right away and service was amazing especially considering it was also Mother's Day and they were very busy.

    Food was fine, and as expected per the menu, but nothing notable. Food timing was good, even (too) fast for the 1st course. Meanwhile. our server didn't smile, took far too long to make his initial 'hello' - we'd already looked over the dinner menu and drink menu entirely. Then, he only took our drink order though it was clear we were ready to order. We weren't told of specials until he brought our drinks. He did check on us twice though after the food was delivered. I made a note on the reservation *and* remarked to the hostess that it was my husband's birthday. They did/said nothing. No candle on the dessert he ordered. Very disappointed. Busboy setting a large table tossed bread plates across the table w/ a clatter. Jason's lacks warmth.
