    Nothing about Jaxx was close to how the restaurant was promoted or reviewed. It was disappointing and not worth the money. I would not return to Jaxx.

    The food and service were wonderful but they need to train their staff on the new computer system. First of all it took way too long to produce the bills for our group, of course they were apologetic We were a sizeable group of all but one bill was incorrect and it was very confusing to get them right

    Three of us ate here and all of our choices were excellent. We had drinks beforehand at the bar and they were well made and generous portions. When the drinks are good, the food usually is too. I had a filet with risotto. The filet was done perfectly and the seasoning was great. The risotto was delicious. One of us had sea bass and that too was nicely prepared. Service was attentive and friendly. We'd definitely go back for another dinner.

    We were a party of 7 and unfortunately had a very poor experience from the food to the service everything was below par. What should have been a nice experience celebrating my mothers 67th birthday turned out to be a very uneventful evening where we left hungry and upset.

    We celebrated my wife's birthday at Jaxx. We had not been here in awhile and were ready to revisit. The only disappointment of the evening was they were not serving their porkchops (which I love!). When told why, it makes me want to return. The chef felt they were not aged enough to serve - wow, talk about quality! Our Jaxx Pepper Steaks, however, were cut when ordered and the most tender and flavorful steak I've ever ordered. Thanks Jaxx for helping my wife celebrate her birthday - we both enjoyed our evening!

    Walking through the doors of Jaxx made me feel like I was transported to an old northeastern neighborhood pub. Hunter green walls with mahogany accents. It looks somewhat formal, but also has a friendly, casual feel to it. Our waiter joked around with us like we were long time patrons. Excellent wine list and great food. I had the Jaxx steak with an amazing sauce. Our waiter recommended their signature desert which was a bread pudding, but he said "it's not your grandma's bread pudding." He was so right. My wife and I loved it.

    I went to open table and scrolled through all Dallas restaurants. I decided on Jaxx and booked a reservation for 2. When I went to redeem my Open Table gift certificate, Jaxx was not on the list of restaurants of which I could choose. The manager took no ownership of the situation and I'm afraid Open Table won't either but if this is a glitch in the system it needs to be corrected. I am a realtor and have been giving Open Table gift certificates to my clients but if they are possibly going to have the same outcome I did, then I might decide on a different closing gift in the future.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 6/21/2014
    The food is definitely not worth the price. We ordered "jumbo" shrimp, which were hardly jumbo at all. No one at the table had great things to say about their food. The manager stood in a corner the entire time and never came to speak to our table (not even to ask how everything was). He spent his time at the hostess stand. The server had to go back and forth 3 times to the chef to give us the excuse as to why the shrimp were so small. We didn't expect anything for free out of this, but they did send a free dessert. I would have preferred the manager actually speak to us considering he is the face of the establishment during business hours. Will definitely not return.

    My wife and I enjoyed a fine meal. She had the pork chop and I had the 8 oz. fillet. Both were excellent cuts and seared and grilled to perfection. The cheddar mashed potatoes consisted of mashed potatoes with some cheddar strips, unmelted, from a kraft bag you get at Kroeger. So bush league it was humorous. The Texas Manhattan was very good, made with TX Whiskey out of Ft. Worth. The server was in a rush for no apparent reason, he didn't have many tables. We think he was a transplanted New Yorker. We'd go back for the entrees and the Manhattan, not the service.

    Dining at Jaxx is always a wonderful experience. We enjoy Matt as our waiter whenever he is working. He made the entire lunch experience as special as he always does. Matt is very attentive to every detail including making sure we have everything refreshed without asking. The descriptions he gives of the various menus is accurate and the food and presentation was marvelous.

    Craig was our waiter and he was great, I usually get the Lamb(it is fantastic), but this time I got the salmon also fantastic. I was surprised, beacause it did not appear that they had a GM around, I see someone that just walks around in casual dress(Old GM wore nice suit)but he never talks to customers such a pity, This is a very classy restaurant all waiters are dressed well so I was surprised that the GM was not in a suit.

    Decided to try Jaxx rather than Chamberlains for a dinner with a friend in town from Toronto. I had heard great things about Jaxx so I decided to try it out. Let me say nothing was terrible but based on the prices I expected a much better experience. The service and ambiance were great but neither the NY Strip that I got not the Filet that my friend got were any better than from Outback - nothing wrong with outback just not in same price bracket. Probably won't be returning nor could I recommend.

    Was welcomed warmly at the door, seated promptly, served well, and fed very well. Jaxx manages to combine a casual feel (saw people in everything from shorts to sport coats, with most in between) with a white tablecloth vibe and especially nice food. The waiter highly recommended the evening's special, a bacon-wrapped filet and shrimp combo — found out later he helped develop it — and with good reason, it was very good, indeed. Will definitely include a return visit to Jaxx the next time I'm in that area.

    We always enjoy our evening at Jaxx. It still reminds me of a really nice, cozy grill with the wood paneling a glass partitions. It has been several months since we dined and the food was still good, with my dining partner raving about the clam chowder, as apparently Jaxx's version is one of the best. Service was OK, but nothing spectacular, especially in view that the restaurant was less than half full on a Saturday evening. The real shocker was the total bill at the end of the meal. The two of us each had a cocktail, appetizer, steak entrée and glass of wine, with a final tally of $180. While Jaxx is an enjoyable evening out, it is not a $90/per person dining experience. I hope the small crowd and large tab are not foretelling the future.

    Reservation was for four - six actually attended. 3 filets, 1 lamb chops, 1 seafood pasta and 1 halibut special. Everyone at the table was very happy with preparation/presentation of their dinners. While asparagus was not on the menu, some had been purchased that afternoon. It was used as a garnish as well as a vegetable. Thoroughly enjoyable experience!

    Would definitely return; prices are reasonable given the quality of the food. Not the greatest filet I've ever had, but also not the most expensive - the two are matched. Service was shaky at first but got better during the meal, servers were very friendly/nice. Has a 'neighborhood' restaurant feel with a 'Palm steakhouse' twist.
