    We hosted an event at Jump and the food and service was fantastic. Julien and Jared took good care of us. There is $2 parking after 5:30 pm which was great for our guests. The coordination leading up to the event wasn't ideal but Julien made sure it all came together once we arrived.

    Went for a quick lunch for a new hire. Enjoyed the daily special - Angus Pie, since it was different but did not find the overall menu too appealing. Nothing really screamed out to me as a "I HAVE to have THAT" dish . Service was quite good and location is ideal

    This was our second time coming to Jump while visiting Toronto. I booked a dinner reservation for my boyfriends birthday. Our server took GREAT care of us, taking into account my boyfriends lactose intolerance and his detest for brussels sprouts, making a steak dinner custom for what he liked. The chef also prepared the appetizer I was wanting into an entree wich was awesome. I HIGHLY recommend Jump for a truly delicious and unforgettable dining experience.

    Good ambiance and excellent service. The food left something to be desired. The mushroom and tame soup lacked salt and my boyfriend's lamb ragu pasta was bland. The beets in the beet salad were overwhelmingly acidic and tasted like they had been pickled in straight vinegar for eons. Ice cream dessert was tasty. Again, the service was fantastic, they brought my boyfriend a candle on our dessert and spelled out happy birthday. They accommodated our random request for chocolate sauce on the side and were very friendly about it. The restrooms are on the second floor and I didn't see a barrier-free washroom on the ground level. Overall an ok place but I don't think I'll be back for a while.

    We had a party of 11 and were tight for time as we were heading to the theatre. Our waiter was aware and expertly handled our ordering and progression of our meal flawlessly to ensure we were out in time. With a party our size, that takes some skill! The ambience is quaint yet hip yet fun and pairs perfectly with the food. Words cannot describe how deliciously perfect this culinary adventure truly is. Everyone is our group was more than satisfied and the entire experience was outstanding. I cannot recommend Jump enough! You must try it!!

    Was very excited to dine here given the reviews. Had the charred quail tacos to start. Unfortunatey they weren't charred and were bone cold. Am a lover of fresh pasta - had the Cavatelli w/ lamb ragu. Mediocre. Sauce was watery, lamb lacked flavour and could have passed as beef flank. My wife had the spaghettini with cuttlefish, shrimp, capers and black olives. The overuse of jarred goods was so salty your tongue would dry up. Pitcher of water highly required. Red Zinfandel ($49) was full bodied and velvety smooth, amazing. But I wouldn't give credit to the Resturant for that. Passed on dessert. Perhaps I was expecting too much, will not be back nor be recommending this place. Overrated. Embarassed I took my wife here for her birthday.

    We have been to Jump several times but this last visit was a disappointment. The service was slow and our food arrived cold. This might be understandable if there had been a big crowd but it was not busy. It is doubtful that we will return.

    Stopped in at Jump for a quick dinner and both food and service were great. The sign of a good restaurant for me is a good menu, and there were plenty of appealing options. I had been out for lunch so I wasn't crazy hungry so I had a hamburger that was really outstanding and in these days of gourmet hamburgers, that's not always easy. Perfectly cooked and super tasty! Server (Leslie) was extremely professional, made sure we had our wine, not too pushy even though we were eating light. Oh and my husband ordered the creme brulee which was also superb!

    Took some Tier 1 Clients here, for a Business Lunch; it worked out well. Jump is ALL about Service. However, the meals do take a little longer than usual; as the kitchen tends to get busy when you have a 'Full House'. The Food was awesome and done to perfection.

    My guest and I both thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Unfortunately we had about 3-4 different people bringing us drinks/meals which may have resulted in some mix-ups. At one point although there were only 2 of us at the table they brought 3 drinks all at once and insisted that one of us had ordered 2!! Then they charged us for it anyways after taking it away, which resulted in numerous delays to get our final bill and make payment.

    My husband and I chose to celebrate our wedding anniversary at Jump. We were greeted by the hostess upon check in and seated at a nice and cozy table did two. The manager on duty came by to speak to us, wished us a happy anniversary asked if we would like a champagne toast. The appetizers were delicious. My husband had the Caesar salad and I had the Tuna Tataki. For our main courses we chose the 10 oz steak and the grilled octopus. Again both dishes were perfectly cooked and delicious. To end off our dinner we chose the vanilla creme brûlée and the chocolate molten brownie with vanilla cream. The desserts came on a platter with enjoygh for both if us to share and happy anniversary written I the platter.

    I really loved the service, everyone was nice and would ask if you needed help instead of you having to ask for help. I ordered the salmon (I usually order salmon everywhere I go) and it tasted delicious. It was very-well made, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The only thing I could really complain about was their lack of menu items. Not many options to choose from. Pretty simple. But hey, quality over quantity I guess. I ended up having the white chocolate cheesecake for dessert but I was unable to finish it due to how sweet it was. Overall I would definitely recommend coming here.

    A great place to meet my downtown friends after work (and I travel in from mississauga to meet up). I was so impressed with our summerlicious experience (and how great the staff treated my 14 year old niece) that I use Jump as a girls' catch up venue. Especially like that you can purchase a 'half glass' of wine.Keep up the good work!!

    The food was remarkable, surpassed only by the level of service. Our waiter was informative, funny, and fun. I was celebrating a 2-year anniversary with my partner, and our lovely waiter went out of his way to ensure we had a spectacular time, and guided us to great selections on the menu. The food was outstanding - I can't say enough good about it! Mostly we stuck to splitting apps, as there were too many good ones to choose from, and each one was amazing. The one-and-only negative about the place: so very empty (even on a Friday night!). I hope more of a crowd starts to attend, as I'd hate to see the place have to close.

    A few of us went there for lunch last week (Thursday 07/31/2014). Got patio seating which was great but our server was also the bartender it seemed and she did not give us the time of day. The patio was mostly empty. She was curt and did not approach the table with a greeting at all but asked us what we wanted to order. It was as if we incovenienced her by being there. Once that was taken, she was no where to be found for the remainder of our meal. We were left constantly looking around for her, even to get the bill. I would not recommend this for the next group lunch spot downtown. The food was not bad but good friendly service would've made our office lunch a more pleasant experience.
