Love it here
We always enjoy dining at Jerry's. We love their weekend specials-they are always different and fun and makes everything seem so fresh all the time. We are so happy they are in WInnetka.

I'm a frequent visitor to Winnetka. My wife and I liked Jerry's so much that we went back 2 nights in a row. Took a "native" who hadn't tried it. She was impressed, too.

My husband and I took his
My husband and I took his dad and wife to Jerry's for dinner before a show downtown. We all enjoyed our meals, from the branzino to the skirt steak. The service was excellent and our drinks were never empty. Our table was a great size for four, big enough for comfortable room and conversation even though the restaurant is on the smaller side. We'll definitely be back!

Interesting, diverse menu
We really enjoyed our first trip to Jerry's. Interesting and diverse menu at very reasonable prices. It will be on our list of regular dining spots.

Try It, You Will Like It!
Jerry's is a favorite of ours - this evening it was particularly empty (Good Friday, Spring Break) so we practically had the restaurant to ourselves! Our server was very nice, very helpful, attentive - but that's normally the case with Jerrys' servers, even on crowded evenings. Our food was reliably good - flatbread pizza, soups, salads - all delicious. The shortribs were good, not my favorite, but a large portion. This is such a good neighborhood restaurant, with reasonable prices and a great atmosphere. If you live on the North Shore and you've not tried it, you should!

Delicious food. Friendly service
Yes it gets busy and it's a small kitchen so sometimes there is a bit of a lag but it's worth it.
Nice place. Love the food and the staff.

Comfortable, casual Mother's Day
We had a simple meal at a convenient time. Food was quite good, especially the salad and the fried chicken. Always reliable and a pleasant dining experience.

Wonderful Mother's Day Brunch!
This is a great place to take Mom to celebrate Mother's Day. The buffet was outstanding. Fried Shrimp with a curry sauce, eggs with ham and Gouda, perfect bacon! Worth every penny.

Jerry's is always a good value and delightful experience.
6/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was trying to find a good restaurant close to home ~ tired of the place in the nearest towns I ventured out to Jerry's~great food and service and a short drive from the town I live in. Free parking and no traffic adds to the experience~I look forward to going back and trying new things on the menu.

Our first visit to this "old house." Sat in a kitchen serving area, food was teriffic & while a little pricey, wouls come back in a heartbeat

A Local Gem
We have been to Jerry's before. So no surprises in the great food. We were surprised that the place wasn't more crowded on a Thursday night. So the noise was low and the service very attentive. Prices are above average.and that may keep the week night casual diners choosing hamburgers instead. We both had curry chicken plus a salad for me and soup for my wife.
We will return.
6/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Once again, Jerry's was FABULOUS!
This time, I took two friends for their first time dining experience at Jerry's. We still cannot stop talking about our meal....From the Red Lentel Soup to our Steak Gyro to our Chili Shrimp Tacos to the delicious Island Salad till the very end..........Tasting THREE, yes, THREE of their desserts! And the desserts were well worth the calories! The ambiance! The waitstaff! The general manager! The owner! Put it all together and you have a wonderful afternoon lunch with friends!!! Bring one! Bring two! Bring ALL of your friends to Jerry's. You will not regret it!
Thank you Jerry's !!!
6/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lovely restaurant for good food and service. I took a friend for lunch and though it was busy, we were able to get a table outside and we sat for a long time enjoying the weather, food and ambience. Waiters try to please and hands down this s the place to go with girlfriends for lunch. conversation friendly. I just found out they have "your loss your gain" options too. Thank you!
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Email specials this summer got me to return to Jerry's, and the experience will bring me back, specials or not!! For $25 each, my wife and I got a house salad, appetizer (we chose a wonderful gazpacho) and split triple (hamburger) sliders and triple shrimp tacos (both excellent, but the tacos were the bomb!) A scoop of gelato finished the meal off. We loved it! The sidewalk availabilty would have been an option if not for the sweltering heat. Service was prompt, wines were reasonable, and overall we loved it!!
7/15/2013 5:00:00 PM
A special meal
We took some friends who appreciate fine food and wine for a Sunday dinner at Jerry's. The appetizers and desserts were delicious but the special fish of the day, grilled whole brazzini with a lemon butter sauce, was outstanding. The service was attentive, but we were not at all rushed as we lingered over conversation and coffee. An overall enjoyable dining experience.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dining outdoors at Jerry's in the summer is a treat not to be missed!
Delicious, beautiful presentation, great service, fresh local produce - it doesn't get much better.
7/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great food and service
The food was a wow! Great preparation of all the dishes at our table.
The meal was enhanced by the service. Something lacking in so many
suburban restaurants. Our waiter new the wine list and menu, made
recommendations that were right on the mark, and was
attentive without hovering over us. A rewarding dining experience
I hope to experience again.

Friends Night Out
We hadn't been to Jerry's for ages but we were not disappointed. Still a cozy little neighborhood place with a great menu and superb staff. Unlike most restaurants we've been to lately, we were able to enjoy our conversation without having to shout across the table. My husband had the Branzino with scalloped potatoes and my friend and I had the skirt steak with sweet potato fries and a spinach soufflé, all were perfectly cooked and delicious. Our dessert was a Tartufo, an Italian ice cream we watched the chef prepare while we were having drinks before dinner. We were able to linger after dinner and talk without feeling like we had to leave so they could fill the table again. We will certainly go back to Jerry's soon!
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a delicious lunch inside. Sometimes the noise level was high.

My favorite local restaurant
Jerry’s is my favorite local restaurant because the quality of the food and service is always consistent. I have eaten various meals there with both friends and family and always enjoyed the experience! I have never had a bad meal or a negative service experience here. It can occasionally be busy but that is a testimony to the quality and reputation of this local treasure.

This is my "go to" place in Winnetka. The food variety is great and always creative. The back room along Chestnut is a gem. The decor is lovely, with walls in a calming teal.

This restaurant is a special occasion for us. We have gone there for several of our wedding anniversaries. Always enjoy it.

Interesting menu, Friendly service and waitstaff. Nice atmosphere. Could use more gluten free selections,as well as, low sodium options in sauces and sals dressings. Overall a nice dining experience will go back.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Jerry's is my go to place for celebrating birthdays with my friends. I love the light and airy side room for intimate conversations. The menu has a wide range of delicious selections with generous portions. The service is always attentive and accommodating. My husband and I have also celebrated special occasions here in the quiet romantic setting.
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
The options for these Open Table reviews are geared toward the young, and we're senior citizens who are not interested in a "vibrant bar scene." When the noise level is high, it's not "energetic" but instead it's "deafening." Fortunately, the noise level at Jerry's was moderate, and we enjoyed the tasty food and good service. It's a bit pricey, but "value" isn't an option in the rating items. Anyway, the four of us had a pleasant evening.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent in every respect
Service was SUPERB! Food was outstanding. Very comfortable!!! Can't wait to go back. Try each of everything.

A great place in downtown Winnetka
The sea bass and the salmon were both very good entrees along with the salad to start. The room is lovely and the service friendly. We have been there many times but not for awhile so we were glad to see they have maintained their high standards.
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
I LOVE THIS PLACE
Jerry's is my kind of restaurant: small, intimate, on the ground floor, gorgeous view of downtown Winnetka, very clever and innovative menu and attentive wait staff. The menu changes frequently so I won't comment on the food but everything our party had was outstanding. Can't wait to return.
9/17/2013 5:00:00 PM
Each of us had a different entree and everyone was very pleased. I never knew one could bake dates and wrap them in bacon -- wow!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
A delightful surprise
Our first time at Jerry's this Saturday night. Early reservation so we had an entire small room to ourselves for the first half of the meal. Started with bacon wrapped dates which were excellent--as good as my wife's and they are the best. My wife had the fried chicken and I had the curried chicken and both were well above average, moist and of decent portions. For dessert, the molten cake with ice cream was as good as we have had anywhere. French press coffee was the only downer--grossly overpriced at $5 and not great coffee.

small nice warm spot
Good food in a small storefront. Really enjoyed the food.

I love this Resturant !!
Every visit to Jerry’s is highly anticipated and the food and service have
always been great!! Jail Island Salmon is a winner and I think I am now hooked so to speak!!
A good time every time. I love this restaurant.

over all positive
Nice to have a place in the Suburbs for a nice meal
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Jerry's (he's the owner's father) provides a dinner as you like it: small plates, medium plates, standard entrees. That makes it fun to eat there. The selections are varied, many out of the ordinary, but all delicious. We had individual soups: Brazilian shrimp and mushroom bisque, as different as they can be, but wonderful. We shared salmon sashimi on sesame crackers with creme fraiche which was even better than expected. Our shared entrees were medium plates: trios of burgers and shrimp tacos. They were wonderful, and we could barely finish! Wine coices are limited but sufficeint and moderately priced. Plus if you get on their mailing list you get monthly J-deals for specials!

Birthday luncheon for 4
There are 4 of us who celebrate our birthdays on or close to the day. We have done this for 3 years.
The birthday honorees are treated very well and receive dessert birthday plates with cookie, sorbet,
and candle plus a decorative plate.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Martini, great Beet salad and great Branzino! Cannot go wrong. Jerrys is very cozy and comfortable. I have taken many friends to Jerrys and they all love it for everything it has to offer.

LOVE THIS PLACE!
Jerry's is the jewel of Winnetka dining. This place never disappoints. My friends and I come here again and again. I love the vegetable curry and I hear people come from miles for the skirt steak. Counting the days until I can return.

A special lunch
Lunch with friends that is better both in food quality and originality than just a sandwich or salad is a relaxing treat. Jerry's offers a pretty and quiet haven from holiday craziness, a place to have a good visit with a gourmet touch. Lunch there made us feel special and certainly not rushed. I had dined there before for dinner. Now I have found a great lunch spot.
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
