JCT Kitchen and Bar
Good food, but this time too saltyWent for Mother's Day at 7:15 pm. We were seated immediately which was nice.
They are very good with getting the food out on time but this particular time my moms halibut said it had crab in it. No where did we find crab inside, on top, underneath and I don't think you would grind up crabmeat and put it as the sauce. The halibut was very small and cost a lot more than the original Sunday night $29.00 bucks for everything.
We had Mac and cheese, collard greens, mashed potatoes, and peas.
The dishes along with the food seemed very salty. We were constantly drinking water.
All in all there food is always good, not sure what happened this time around.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood not GreatI have enjoyed the Sunday Supper many times for family occasions. This time, sitting outside with family, the atmosphere and service was great, but the food was not. I had the chicken which was okay. Cornbread as blah. Sweet potatoes were creamy, but a little cinnamon topping could have added pizazz. We got an extra veggie dish because we love veggies so much. Collards were not good, and only Mac and cheese (not really a veggie) was yumm. A bit disappointed at a great restaurant!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMATL Standout.The kitchen never disappoints with limited, but high quality menu options... great for foodies! Fun crowd, lively environment and the upstairs open-air bar has a great view of the city. Level of service can vary but is always polite.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeThe food was definitely comfort food and very good! i saw this restaurant on an episode of on the road with G Garvin and his recommendation for the shrimp and grits and the fried chicken was right on. We were a party of 7 and everyone ordered something different from the menu and each dish was awesome. The ambience and the food was outstanding! The service was attentive and friendly.
Pricey but worth it!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMvery pleasant experienceI thought the service was wonderful. Oddly enough, the table dishes and starter salad were better than the entrees, at least the night we were there. I would feel very comfortable bringing out of town guests here.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing foodThe food and service were absolutely amazing. Totally recommend the Padron Peppers and the Angry Mussels. Those were the best mussels I have ever had!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My husband and I could not get over how yummy they were and the grilled bread definitely put it over the top!!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA true GEMMy wife and I ate at JCT for the first time this past Saturday and to sum it up, cannot wait to go back. Everything was awesome.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ambiance and great food!This was my first time at this restaurant and it was definitely a treat! The food was very good, the drinks were poured just right, and I had a waiter that was very passionate about the food and knowledgable. (Hate that I forget his name) I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a cool atmosphere and hoping to satisfy their taste buds. I am hoping to come back on a night when the live band is performing.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMTroutdadHad dinner with friends at JCT Kitchen Saturday night and was very impressed. Service was friendly and the food was delicious. I loved the shrimp and grits and could have eaten a bucket of the apple hushpuppies. Highly recommend this restaurant.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMI give JCT’s 5 Stars. EverythingI give JCT’s 5 Stars. Everything was great from the start. Valet parking in heavy rain is a plus. The staff was very friendly and the facility inviting. Our wait staff was very attentive and knowledgeable of both the food and the wine. We started off with the much talked about Angry Mussels, and they were great. Just the right amount of kick. The Hen of the woods mushrooms were excellent. I have the famous fried chicken and it was as great as everyone said. My wife had the Chicken and Dumplings and it was delicious. They paired it well with a Chardonnay “ Educated Guess”. We will definitely go back to enjoy some of the other interesting dishes.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMVery trendy atmosphere; VeryVery trendy atmosphere; Very loud; Very good food! One of our favorite dishes is the Angry Mussels!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place. Took my boyfriendGreat place. Took my boyfriend here, and the food was so good! We got there a little too late, we wanted to try the JCT Fried Chicken, but settled for the Wooden Grilled Chicken which was so good! Great place for a date :)4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWhile service was a bit slowWhile service was a bit slow to find us after we were first seated (some confusion apparently with where we were seated), the waitstaff more than made up for it once they realized their mistake. Food was excellent, our server was very good, and atmosphere was lovely, and even the house Sonoma cab was unbelievable for the modest bottle price. . We will definately go back!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply great food and atmosphere.Simply great food and atmosphere. Feels like home but with a cool and hip flare.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently good food andConsistently good food and service make this one of our "go to" restaurants for almost any occasion.

We will be back again soon!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Bar was great, the serviceThe Bar was great, the service in the restaurant was outstanding, but the food was a complete let down. A chef should know the basics of how to prepare a steak to the proper temperature, epic fail. Appetizers, wine, cocktails and service were out of this world.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a Homerun. JCT hasAlways a Homerun. JCT has great food and a great atmosphere at an affordable price.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was great exceptEverything was great except for the fried pies. Who serves fried pies at room temperature? They were a soggy, greasy mess. I sent them back.
Highlight? Prosciutto on a deviled egg.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMJCT is an Atlanta gemThere are so many "new Southern" restaurants out there, but JCT is one of them that gets it right from the ambience, to the service to the food it is all good! Love the deviled eggs, the fried chicken, soups and salads. The wine and cocktail selection are superb too.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food. CreativeFantastic food. Creative and delicious cocktails. Excellent and attentive service. Only complaint is that it is ridiculously noisy and you need to shout through dinner.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this restaurant. GreatLove this restaurant. Great food always and great atmosphere.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe only disappointment wasThe only disappointment was the dessert I choose (the caramel cake "banana's foster." It was as step below the quality of the entrees and appetizers. We loved the vibe...upbeat without being chaotic, hip without being pretentious. Great cocktail list.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Sunday DinnerWe went for JCT's Sunday Supper. We arrived early for our 6:30p reservation, so we started with a drink at the bar. When we were seated, we quickly received a deviled egg and biscuits with delicious vanilla and apple butter. The salad was crisp, but nothing special. We both ordered the fried chicken, and split corn, brussel sprouts, and mac and cheese. All was excellent. The dessert of the evening was pecan pie, and although it is not what I would normally choose, I enjoyed every bite. Our waiter was very attentive despite the restaurant being busy. The mood during Sunday Supper is casual but energetic. Good food, good company, and a good time. I'll be back.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome service and greatAwesome service and great food with a beautiful atmosphere.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMDid not disappoint.

Come early for the fried chicken!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food has never blown meThe food has never blown me away at JCT, but it is consistenly of good quality. The "angry" mussels could have been angrier for me...lacked the punch they normally have. I had the rabbit with black pepper noodles and garlic jus for my entree. It was excellent! I recommend that dish. The best part of the night was the service. Our server was on top of everything and he anticipated all of our needs. Even though we were the last table in the place, he never rushed or appeared irritated. He was the best!4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOur experience at JCT KitchenOur experience at JCT Kitchen was excellent.

Great food - arugula salad was not as "peppery" as arugula usually is.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was outstanding, friedFood was outstanding, fried chicken and chicken confit. Did feel that 2.5 small dumpling portion was a little on the short side though. Arugula/ham salad we shared was incredible. Service was certainly not rushed and a little slow. Was almost 2 hours for dinner and the wait for each course had us turning our heads looking for the server. Water glass not refilled until we paid the tab. Still had a great time and enjoyable evening and will definitely go back.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMHad the perfect cosmopolitan.Had the perfect cosmopolitan.
