For the most part the food was great. Both steaks were over cooked though, one needed to be sent back. Service was terrible, never had a waiter actually greet us, drinks sat empty, things took forever, wait staff never checked in on us.

The food was good enough that I would hope it was just an off night, give them another shot.

Menu had interesting dishes, food was excellent but the waitstaff was another story. Numerous things had to be requested numerous times, many staff stopped at our table to ask if we needed anything and then nothing came, another staff stopped and asked again and we requested the same thing. Eventually 2 bottles of sparkling water arrived after a long wait etc etc. Lost in space.

My wife and I met 2 friends there and this was our first time there.

Loved the ambiance! There were a couple of birthday parties going on so it made for a lively crowd but it didn't interfere with our dining experience.

Food and service were very good.

I would go back for sure!

Slowest service ever. Wait staff disappears for long periods of time. For brunch no one coming around with more coffee? Food was great but we were at brunch nearly 90 minutes which was way too long for 2 people.

We didn't know what to expect and it was so much more than we could have asked for. A perfect place to spend our 15th anniversary.

Oddly enough, though, our waiter mentioned he'd send us a treat/make it more special and nothing happened.

Our service was abysmal. I think it was the waitress's first night and no one bothered to train her and she had never been to a restaurant herself. It is too bad because other people at the restaurant were professionals- bartender, hostess, waiter we know there.

The food was excellent, extremely tasty and lots of choices. The ambiance of the restaurant was great as well. The music got a bit loud but it was still enjoyable. Service was good but the waiter could have been a bit more attentive. I would certainly recommend this to others.

We had a really lovely meal, in celebration of my birthday. The patio was amazing, and the food was wonderful. My only issue was the lack of knowledge with the menu. The server was not knowledgeable about the drinks, nor the food items - I should not have to be googling different items. This I blame on management for the lack of training/tasting - Our server was lovely and eager to learn the menu , only if she had been trained properly. I look forward to our next visit. Hoping things improve.

The J House for dinner is like going to South Beach. Beautiful outdoor seating. Food is good but the service is uneven. Lots of staff working but it seems like no one is in charge and simple things (salt and pepper for the table, a drink not well prepared, etc) continually fall through the cracks. Having said that , as an alternative in the Greenwich, CT area, I would recommend the restaurant.

If you don't mind parking far away and waking through Greenwich for mediocre food, J house is for you !

From the moment you drive up to the valet-less property and try to navigate the maze of often unavailable parking areas, you know you could have made a better choice.

Once you trek to the property and hope your street parking is in fact legal, you're greeted by an "am I in the right place?" entrance. Eventually, you end up in the dining area or bar.

From there, the drinks were just ok, the food an insult to the intention for a nice meal, and the overall blasé attitude is tres Greenwich.

So please try to enjoy! Because the attitude here is one of "we couldn't care less if you like it.

They gave us a very nice table by a fireplace. However it was too hot to keep it on. The service was terrible. Our waitress repeatedly told us she would be at our table but wouldn't come back. It took 15 minutes just to order a drink and the restaurant was empty at that time. She only cleared half of our dinner dishes and left us sitting there for over 25 minutes waiting with a dirty table. Our daughters birthday dessert was waiting at her station the entire time and by the time she served it we all just wanted to get home. There were plenty of servers, the place wasn't full so no excuse. Pizzas were good. Agnolotti was good but only received about 5.

The best place for a quiet lunch or dinner in town when you'd like a casual luxe and stylish ambience without the parking issues on Greenwich Avenue. The food also keeps improving, and is actually reliably fresh, well thought out, and yummy. In the warmer months especially, don't miss the outdoor space-- gorgeous and a little bit like southern California in the middle of southwest Connecticut!

Terrible!! $60 per person for Fathers Day brunch. The food was cold or dried up and basically eggs, chicken sausage, cold breakfast potatoes!! A smal helping of salmon and roast beef with no trimmings! My sister and her husband are visiting from England so we were 6 in total and this was the worst meal any of us have ever had!!
Very disappointed.

very good food in a lovely setting; live music added to the ambience, though it did make the room a little noisy. I thought the wine list was very reasonably priced (lots in the $40-$60 range) for a restaurant of this caliber.
