Absolutely loved the restaurant, the food was really good and the portion size was perfect and the price was reasonable. It is a beautiful place and I can't wait to do it again! The noise level got out of hand a couple of times but it was more just the rude nature of people today, we didn't let that ruin our night. We will be back!

we were a group of 6 from Baton Rouge. Just a few of us had been to Jacmel Inn but it had been a long time - we enjoyed the road trip - not too far from BR, the food was excellent, reasonably priced, the atmosphere was great and we will certainly recommend to other friends and we will return.

Good choice for an upscale
Good choice for an upscale lunch at very good price. Wish for more menu options. Very young and inexperienced wait staff..weak link in experience. Was a frequent customer and returned after a couple of months..menu same..please be imaginative or some daily specials..maybe there were some specials but our teenage waitress, whose name I don't know bc she didn't introduce herself, didn't tell us about the specials. Beautiful quaint house.

Too Good to Miss
If you like great food, superb ambiance and personal attention, it's hard to beat the Jacmel Inn. Every time I leave there, I'm looking forward to going back.

First timer and was very pleased with the experience. I was traveling and was looking for a spot to host a quiet business lunch. Great food and service. Highly recommend.

Found it interestesting that
Found it interestesting that we tried to modify our reservation to 30 minutes later and Open Table indicated there was no table available at that time. Yet Restaurant empty.
This made for a lovely quaint dining experience but Open Table did not reflect open tables accurately.

Martini is overpriced
One drink......the martini.....is $12 and thus- way overpriced. As a note, Commanders has .25 cent martinis for lunch each weekday and they seem to do just fine. You might rethink your bar prices as they are grossly overpriced.

I did not enjoy the special on Saturday night. It was very strong. The service was good. My husband had the shrimp & grits & enjoyed them. Have had better house wine

We went on Father's Day. We were 30 minutes early for our reservation, but they seated us immediately. The service was spot on. There were quite a few people there, including big family tables, but noise was minimum. I had the BEST mimosa I've ever had, followed by a delicious salad and the BEST shrimp and grits ever!
I braced myself for the bill, but it was delightful as well.
Overall, one of my most enjoyable dining experiences ever!

Our experience was wonderful-just short of perfect. The only let down was that we had reservations early. We arrived 15 min early. Resturant pretty much empty as it was the first of the night. One couple already eating. We were seated next to that couple, who were loud and very obnoxious. We had to hear every word and thought that speewed out of their mouths. It would have been nice to spread us out some. Other than that, everything else was great.

Revisited Jacmel Inn after a 20 year absence due to moving away from Hammond. The environment was better than ever with a comfortable yet elegant feel. The service was very good. The young waitress was attentive but not overbearing. Food was good but would have preferred more choices on the menu. Dined with a friend who is a vegetarian and other than soup and salad there were no other choices. When we inquired about veg choices, the waitress stated that she could ask the chef. My friend decided to stick with soup and salad - which were good but would have preferred at least some type of pasta dish. The menu posted on-line listed many more choices. Other than this issue, it was an enjoyable experience and we plan to return.

Delightful evening . . .
A party of three celebrated twq July birthdays and it was an AWESOME evening! From the time we walked in the door to the time we left; we were treated like royalty and fed well in the process (although we had to use our own hands to get the food from the plate to our mouths!) We ordered three entrees and shared. Steak, fish of the day & their scallops! Oh my goodness -- each was delicious and cooked to perfection!
I'll be going back . . .

I placed my reservation on-line and was a first time customer to JacMel. It was very easy and they even had the champagne I requested ready to go when they greeted us by name at the door! Very romantic and quiet and the servers were just awesome. Very down to earth and knowledgeable! We will certainly be back and not just when it is someone's birthday!!!

We have our anniversary dinner here every year and will continue to do so. The employee's are all so very nice and the service is perfect. The food is exceptional and the atmosphere is quiet, romantic, and relaxing. Overall it's outstanding and not over priced. We always recommend this restaurant to our friends and family.

Anniversary Dinner Celebration
We have gone to Jacmel's occasionally over many years. The atmosphere is calming and relaxing. The staff is attentive and the food is a cut above. Our meal Saturday night was not the best that we have had there. It was less flavorful and a little more bland than usual. Never the less, it was a wonderful way to celebrate our 38th wedding anniversary.

I came with hi expectations for a b-day brunch with 1st time guests. Our table was in a nice area with a view, but both A/C vents blew straight up our backs. The garlic-brie soup was delicious! The 2 Brie & Crab Omelets were very good, plenty of jumbo lump crabmeat on top & just enough brie. The 8oz filet was good & cooked to order, but the potato & veggie portions were rather small. Bread with entrees would have helped these boys. We hope to return to try other dishes, hopefully for dinner.

Love the restaurant appearance. Service was great. Atmosphere was fantastic. Staff very polite. Food was ok. Not worth the listed menu price.

Made a special request and it was provided. Would recommend to everyone.

Lovely outdoor brunch
I had a brunch with my bridesmaids at Jacmel. The food was wonderful and the weather was perfect for dining outside. It was a great experience.

A Perfect Dining Experience
The charm, the decor, the atmosphere is every bit that of any 5 star resturaunt in big cities, even New Orleans. The service was spot on. Our waitress' timing was that of high end waitress. And the food was unbelievable. Everything was cooked to perfection and amazingly delicious. This was a special celebration for my wife and our guested felt I had pulled out all the stops for them. The price was right where I would want it to be. We will be back - and not just for special occasions.
