    Not much to stay other than a great dining experience for all 6 in our party. All entries were exceptional. Despite being busy with events and our reservation being late in the evening, service and food was of high quality. Don't miss this spot when in Winston-Salem.

    Went to dinner with my wife, early-ish reservations on a Friday evening. Seated upstairs at a window and adjacent to the bar, so it was a good view of the street. She got pimento cheese burger and I got the portabella sandwich. She enjoyed her burger. My sandwich was just meh. Nothing wrong with - it pretty standard portabella sandwich. Was hoping for something more. Sides were frozen fries. Again, fine but hoping for better. Our server was the best of the upstairs group. He kept busy with his tables and checkin in with us. Other servers were standing around in the dining area chatting with each other, interrupting their conversations to serve diners occasionally. It was clear why service often gets bad reviews at Jeffrey Adams.

    I really enjoyed our dinner at Jeffrey Adams. The restaurant is lovely (especially the ceiling) and romantic. The service is great! We had the Sirloin, asparagus, baked potato, sweet potatoes and gouda mac and cheese. Every food was delicious and had a woodgrilled taste. Side salad was also great. The restaurant was very relaxing and reasonably priced. We will be back again!

Go at sunset and set by a window upstairs.....You will be rewarded with an amazing scene of thousands of bats swirling above the roof tops of Winston Salem. No need to watch National Geographic - WS has it right out the window of Jeffery Adams....amazing sight, food, wine and service :)

    We had a nice table with a good view. The appetizers were good (Ahi Tuna and Artichoke Dip on Bread) but one of the 4 main dishes must not have been ordered because they only brought 3. The 4th one arrived after the rest of us had finished.

    We went to Jeffery Adams on the the recommendation of a family member. We were there for 10 minutes before someone came to tell us our server had gone on a break and then another 5 before they came back and told us they didn't know where they were. My wife and I both felt that the server in training who was helping us was doing the best job out of everyone. Overall, service was okay. Food was just okay as well. I felt that the cut of my steak was really not worth the money that was paid for it. I had the blue cheese/ panko encrusted ribeye and found it to be over-grizzly for what should be . My wife had the salmon which was cooked to her liking, but lacked seasoning and flavor. We just were not impressed and will not return.

    This was my first time eating at Jeffrey Adams on Fourth. I read previous reviews that ranged from excellent to not so good. I decided to see for myself. I ordered the Bleu Ribeye. my guest chose Seafood Risotto. We started with a Caesar salad. It was average. Both meals arrived in a timely fashion and the portions were generous. Favorable comments were made about the risotto. I did not try it. I hope it was good and my guest was not just being polite. The ribeye was a big disappointment. It was cooked to the requested temperature. It was dry and a bit gristly. It looked more like a NY strip cut than a ribeye. I did not eat all of it and would not order this again if I choose to return. The service was polite and acceptable.

    First time here. We had heard the steaks were great and we were not disappointed. Definitely one of the best we've had. Also ordered the Grouper and it was excellent. Food was displayed nicely and the service was good. Seating is a little tight. We will come back, and ask for a table by the window so we can enjoy the views.

    Jeffrey Adams was a great location for a late lunch with friends. The cocktails were creative and yummy. I especially liked the strawberry basil martini with balsamic vinegar and black pepper. Lots of flavor. Plus, the food was delightfully delicious. You could say we loved it since all four of us cleaned our plates. This will definitely be a "return to" location.

    The five of us really enjoyed it. We called and asked to move our time at the last minute and they were able to accommodate us. Nice ambience and nice view. Try to get the upstairs corner window if you have 4 or more. Two of us ordered The Fountain of Youth drink and didn't like it. It reminded us of melted Popsicles. The food and service were both good to very good.

    I've been to Jeffrey Adams many times and have always had great service, but this time our waitress was terrible. She clearly was unhappy about being a work. We had to ask for everything, pre-dinner drink, an appetizer, etc. I'm giving her the benefit of the doubt that she was having a bad evening, but it really does reflect poorly on a restaurant when their servers are horrible.

    We were hoping to like this restaurant, menu on line looked good and had a recommendation from a friend to try it, unfortunately our experience was not good. Very nice waitress who appeared to be very new and definitely not trained well, very young hostess staff talking and giggling together which didn't provide for a nice atmosphere. The appetizers were good but entrees and dessert were terrible-four small tough scallops for the scallop entree, sweet potatoes that came with the port tasted watered down and the brownie dessert had a fast of freezer burn.

    I had been searching for a restaurant in Winston-Salem & found Jeffrey Adams on Fourth to be just the place. The food was very good, my husband had a steak that was prepared just the way he wanted it. I had a special salad with scallops. It was fresh & tasty, the salad dressing was delicious. Our server was very personable and efficient. We'll be back.

    Very good service - we changed our reservation the afternoon of dining and they worked to accommodate our extra diners. Food was very good. The only negative thing I would say about the food, boneless ribs and the surf & turf was overpriced for the amount of food on the plate. 2 small ribs (I would compare the size to large pieces of beef stew) surf & turf was 4 oz filet ( as shown) 2 scallops and 2 small crab claws for $27.00 Other than the portions, both were very good. All other plates ( 7 more) had ample portions. Would definitely dine again

    We went to Jeffery Adams for lunch before a meeting. We arrived around 11:30. Our food was a little slow coming out, but not bad. We had trouble getting our check. The waitress was having trouble applying a discount, and was trying to get two tables checks done at once. Others that came in right after us had to wait much longer for their food -they were just being served as we were getting our checks.

    Had been wanting to try Jeffrey Adams and had the chance to on Mother's Day. They clearly were not prepared for the occasion. I had requested a table on my reservation request and was taken straight to a booth (no other tables available), which are uncomfortable for me. Waitress did not know menu and had to come back several times to clarify orders. Food took over 40 minutes to come from the kitchen. It was tasty enough, but presentation was terrible--orders looked like they had been thrown on the plate. I had high hopes for this restaurant, but as there are so many with better service in the city, I will not return.

    Eggs Benedict came out ice cold; sent back to kitchen and they brought us round 2, which was again, ice cold. Hash meal came out with no meat, they brought out the meat later on and removed that meal from the tab. Kitchen must have been overwhelmed with the brunch crowd.

    We thought the food was excellent but particularly want to comment on the service we received. One of our party began exhibiting autistic behaviors which could have escalated to become even more unpleasant for everyone. Our waiter and the manager on duty were amazing in their response to the situation, helping to smooth the rough spots and deal with a difficult customer with grace and compassion. And our food was excellent also. We will return to this restaurant without hesitation.

    Our first visit to Jeffrey Adams was great! We brought out of town company to see part of downtown Winston-Salem, and had an enjoyable experience. Our server was very pleasant and accommodating. The menu had a good variety of items that would please any taste. Perhaps the addition of more vegetarian entrees could be considered, although there are plenty of appetizers and salads available.
