    This place is pricey, but you get what you pay for. We had a quiet Anniversary dinner with the best Rubs and Filet ever. The ribs fell off the bone (literally) and a newborn could have eaten my filet, it was so tender! Seasoned to perfection! The wine list was extensive as were the specialty cocktails. But the service was impeccable. Our waiter found the perfect balance of being invisible but maintaining our needs. He was so polite! Not the service at your local chain, that's for sure! Bring your wallet, and a few Benjamin's for a dinner for two, but be prepared for a night to remember!

    We were given a table by the door. While the waitress attempted to block the cold breeze from hitting us with a screen, this table is highly compromised: cold, in traffic, etc. Not suitable for a business dinner.

  • Crowded for a Monday night

    Made a reservation, just in case, but the restaurant was surprisingly crowded for a Monday evening -- primarily business-types. We (three of us) were seated at a round table in the middle of a pretty full room and were treated to the entire conversation of a table of 8 next to us -- our fault for not asking for a different spot. That said, our service was attentive. The wine selection nice (we each did a different glass) and our food quite good. We started with the warm potato chips with blue cheese. They were mostly warm -- some were actually cold -- but tasty nonetheless. Two of us had the ribs -- the warm potato salad was yummy and the ribs good enough to eat without any additional sauce. One person had the pork tenderloin and said it was great. We ordered the roasted cauliflower as a side and would not do that again -- it was roasted, but covered in cheese, so not what we were expecting. We'd definitely visit again.

  • Great Place To Eat... But Hard to Find

    We had a lot of trouble locating this restaurant. After driving and walking around in freezing temperatures, we finally found the place. The valet had rolled up its carpet for the night (we went on a Sunday), but we found a parking meter half a block away. The wine and drink list was impressive. My husband's cocktail was perfect. We both had their small filet, which was tender and succulent. I ordered spinach, and they brought me cauliflower instead. It didn't matter - It and the mac & cheese were delicious. The waitress' attention was inconsistent, but overall, we didn't spend too much time waiting for anything. My #1 recommendation for this place is to go find it before the sun goes down! Second, find out the # of the valet service and call to make sure they are really going to be there because not everyone will luck out on finding street parking.

    We were the largest party in the section and the manager did not come check on us one bit. I watch him go table to table but he did not check on us. If we are spending over $400 in a resturant I expect a little more attention.

    Our service was great! The prime rib was very tender. Otherwise, the salad with bleu cheese had way too much dressing and dressing too vinegary. The Mac and cheese and creamed spinach were mediocre, largely because they were luke warm. Too expensive for a mediocre meal

    Five of us went to Jasper's for lunch and we all left stuffed and very pleased. We started out with their blue cheese chips and calamari. They were both delicious...and addictive. Our server (I forget his name) was very nice and attentive to all of us and even went out of his way to find the "perfect" hot tea for one of the ladies in our group. The soups were also delicious! Half of us ordered a texas-style tortilla soup and the other half enjoyed their soup of the day (chicken noodle). For our entrees, a few of us ordered the 1/2 rack of ribs and the other ladies ordered the pork. Both dishes were outstanding and it was more than enough food! I probably could have split my 1/2 rack of ribs with someone and still be full. Overall wonderful service and food. Definitely coming back!

    We've been to Jasper's in the past but are always reminded why we don't frequent the place. Their "Bon Appétit Top 3 Best Ribs in America" award needs to be seriously reevaluated. While the ribs that the hubs ordered weren't nasty, they were average. My husband said he could get better ribs at a chain restaurant. I was starving and my chicken dish came out looking yummy, but everything was wrong with it. There was no flavor to the meat, and it sat on a big pile of mushy couscous and veggies. For a limited menu, you would think they would perfect the dishes and have a good balance of texture and flavor. The only positive was our corn side dish but that obviously doesn't say much! We will definitely not be returning.

Since it was a birthday celebration, my advance request re the division of the bill was spot on. Thanks for a lovely evening.

    I was hoping for a delicious night. the crab cake appetizer was delicious. The cheese chips everyone loves were bad. the chips were soggy almost as son as we got them and essentially tasted of pure blue cheese, which is fine, but I think it was too much for anyone who didn't want solid blue cheese on a soggy chip. My husband ordered pork brisket with a vegetable stir-fry. He liked it alright, but I thought the meat tasted a little of lighter fluid. And I am not just trying to be mean. The grill marks just did. And my meal was something recommended by the server and was only alright. I would not go there again.

    We were celebrating our 19th Wedding Anniversary and chose Jaspers for our special occasion. It was exciting to sit along side the kitchen and view the pass ... especially considering that we are both fans of Gordon Ramseys ... "Hells Kitchen" series! Now I know that if your also a fan like me your probably thinking ... REALLY! ... is it Loud with a bunch of Yelling? The answer is ... simply NO ... but it was ideal to be able to view my beautiful wife and enjoy the professionalism of the Chefs and staff members at Jaspers. Our dining experience was very memorable for us and would recommend it to All on your special occasion.

    The service was wonderful. The menu was limited, and my husband is a picky eater. He finally settled, and when his meal came out it was very spicy. He said the meat cut and ate like butter, but he would have preferred less spice. I had the entree crab cakes. They were very small and didn't come with additions. They were yummy, but I was happy I ordered a salad. I ate every bite.

    We made reservations for Houston Wine Week but when arrived were told that they were not participating due to staff issues. Although we were disappointed we decided to make the best of it. In the meantime, the manager directed our server, Phillip, to discuss with the chef what they could put together for a Wine Week food/wine tasting. They outdid themselves with our 3 courses of appetizer, entree and dessert which included accompanying wines and port. Everything was delicious!! We've eaten at Jasper's regularly since its opening and can't say enough good things about it to our friends.

    Dinner - Three adults and one 6 year old. Loved the Blue Cheese Chips, but a little messy. Steaks were seasoned well and cooked perfectly. Grandson loved the chicken tenders and fries. Only downside was the appetizer crab cakes with slaw. I found shell with my first bite. I like lump crab and this was very fine with a lot of breading. I have to say, the noise level was not bad. I enjoyed that a lot! Very nice atmosphere.

    As usual the food was exceptional. Sat upstairs for the first time. Outstanding space but so cold you could hang beef. Despite requesting them to raise the thermostat, couldn't get it right all night. Got a bit better for a few minutes and then back to Arctic conditions. Both appetizers and main courses delivered to wrong table and food for others delivered to us. Wait staff placed food at incorrect seat locations when they did finally deliver. We love the good and ambiance in general, but the servers need training. Need to do better if restaurant wants to be recognized as consistently excellent.

Tiny criticism was bread served before meal - was standard, off the shelf baguette, and not in-line with quality of rest of meal. Other than that, great and would highly recommend it.

I have been to Jaspers before and it was much better. Unfortunately your last experience is the one that stays with you. We will probably never return. Our server tried very hard and was attentive.
