The restaurant atmosphere was great, sat outside and had a great sunset view. However, the food was just OK. I had an peppered NY strip, medium, and it was over peppered, perhaps to hide the fact that it was cooked to well done? Then our waitress started fighting with one of the other helpers, which was very awkward to us sitting nearby.

The service was slow and the food took a long time to arrive. The chicken was over cooked and dry. However the ribeye and mashed potatoes were great!

We had the five course tasting menu and it was awesome. Our server Paul and his team were on top of everything. It was our 40th wedding anniversary and we will be going back for more special occasions. We highly recommended J&G’s.

I showed up for my 815 reservation at 650. I know i was 1.5 hours but I had not eaten. The place was empty so I asked the hostess if I could be seated. She said she’d see what see can do mean time I could sit in the bar. At 815 I went to the hostess to be seated. The place still wasn’t to crowded she told me no table for me and to wait another 15 minutes. I am not good with bad attitude people so I took my business else where. I love the JG chain but will never be back. Then to top it off they reported to open table I didn’t show up. Tacky.

It was a very special evening and our waitress was very helpful. I had the appy of the Tuna carpaccio, which was excellent. My boyfriend had the French onion soup. For the main I had the fillet which was cooked to perfection. Loaded baked potato and creamed spinach topped off our wonderful meal.

Great ambience and view of the area. Food is good but not great. Shrimp cocktail was really good. I had the 12 oz filet that was ordered to be medium and was closer to medium well in the center and well done on the ends.

Worst experience in 6 years of eating here. Had not been since the pandemic closure. The food was absolutely awful. The filet mignon I ordered was so thin I had to ask if it was truly a filet (zero seasoning). For a place known As a steakhouse it’s ridiculous to be serving a 1/4 inch filet - well done to boot when ordered with a warm red center. The Mac and cheese which used to be divine was pedestrian and flavorless while the wedge was not chilled and came with a whisper of dressing. The only two things that went right were the ginger margarita (sublime still) and the cheese fritter appetizer.

The view on the terrace is spectacular. The interior is also very nice. The wedge salad was awesome. The waitress and bus service at our outdoor table was very good. My less than stellar review is mostly about the kitchen. A steakhouse must be able to provide a properly cooked steak. I order medium rare always. The waitress knew as soon as the plate hit the table that the steak was medium well to well. She didn't even blink when I called her over. They took the steak back, however, left my wife's entree and the sides on the table while we waited for a new steak to be prepared. At a quality restaurant, all food would return so all at the table could enjoy the meal together. I don't think that is much to ask of a restaurant. Next steak was prepared properly. An extremely meh experience for a really high ticket.

The service was great but the food was less than impressive comsidering the price. My wife's first fillet was dry and chewy. Her second was better. Mt ribeye although flavorful was extremely chewy for $70. The decor is old and worn in need of a remodeling. We will not return.

We enjoyed the tasting menu at this beautiful restaurant. Wonderful views out the expansive windows and balcony.
The black truffle cheese fritters were great! Crispy on the outside; filled with flavor and gooeyness on the inside. Small enough even for one bite each fritter.
The tuna tartare came with a generous layer of guacamole and a nice ginger marinade that gave it great tartness. Just right!
The Parmesan risotto had a nice creamy texture balanced with mushrooms filled with flavor.
The filet mignon with half lobster was a simple surf and turf presentation compared to the other dishes -- very straightforward. The fillet and lobster were both beautifully cooked. Drawn butter and the Bearnaise were perfect accompaniments.
The warm chocolate lava cake with caramel ice cream and tuile was a great finish to a wonderful meal -- not too sweet.

The service was attentive and very professional. Loved it!

Overall, this is much less expensive compared to a Cafe Monarch or Reserve (which, granted, is at a different level), but head and shoulders above Elements at Sanctuary all round in both food and service.

Expect to be treated based on how much you look like you’ll tip.

Food: excellent and flavorful; fish and steak are equally delicious; you should not feel compelled away from dubious menu items — everything is excellent.
Ambiance: view makes this restaurant worthwhile, plan an earlier meal
Price: food price is fair for what is offered, drink price is very good for location
Service: My wife and I are 24 y/o. Our waiter treated us as such — focusing on other tables, disinterest in our orders, exceptionally long waits between drinks, and so on. Very dissatisfied with our waiter. However, our secondary wait staff (bus, host, bar, kitchen, etc) was phenomenal.
