Jack and Tony's Restaurant and Whiskey Bar Ratings and Reviews
I had filet mignon asparagus and wedge salad. My husband had New York steak and potatoes with a cream sauce. The steaks were very tender and were bursting with flavor. The wedge salad was delicious. The potatoes had a very flavorful cream sauce. Everything perfect! The waiter called him self the Irish twin because him and his brother were born a year apart. He was very knowledgeable about the food and drinks and assisted us in what we ordered. He also surprised us with a fancy butterscotch pudding that was delicious. With wonderful food and a awesome waiter it was a wonderful celebration. Terry Hartwig
It seems that one of the most common complaints about this place is the slow and sometimes substandard service. We experienced both; while it did not lead to an overall negative experience when you consider that the food itself is pretty straightforward here, especially for the price, you would think service is something they'd want to focus on as a key differentiator.
The food is excellent, our waiter Cooper (who we routinely request) is knowledgeable about the menu as well as wine & whiskey,however...
FREQUENTLY, when receive our appetizer or main course from someone other than our server, we have to ask for utensils. Sometimes the wait has been anywhere from 1 - 4 minutes resulting in our food cooling off.
Attention to detail & "the little things" prevented me from giving Jack & Tony's a 5-star Overall rating.
Our server was so wonderful and attentive. She really made our evening wonderful. Shes conversed with our party, answered all our questions and was very informative. It may seem simple and something that just about every server should do but it doesn't always happen like that. We ordered from a Prix Fix menu and although you're limited on choices we all found something that we really tasty. We also ordered an appetizer from their main menu and drinks. We definitely could have passed on the bacon-wrapped scallops that we ordered (they were small and just so-so), but the drinks really made up for that. The cocktails were so delicious and definitely had a bit of a kick to them. ;)
This was by far the best steak i've had in quite some time. I of course tired everyone else's dish and the salmon and lamb shank were also fabulous. The waitress was extremely knowledgable and had a great sense of humor. I have already recommended Jack & tony's and have been trying to find an excuse to go back. Good thing my birthday is in a couple weeks ;-)
We had a very nice meal at Jack and Tonys. Not quite the fine dining experience that we have had there in the past. It was all good, don't get me wrong, but for these prices you can find other restaurants that really sizzle. I really wanted to come here for the whiskey, but unfortunately our dinner guests were not inclined to hard liquor, so even that was slightly disappointing.
We had two restaurants in mind for our one night passing through town -- Lococos next door and this one. I suspect they both would have been great -- we chose this one since had larger, well-spaced tables and seemed more low key. Great local wine selection by the glass. Very pleasant service and really good food. It's what you would expect from the menu. Worth a return visit.
We went to Jack and Tony's this weekend to celebrate our anniversary. We booked through open table. We arrived early, and found out their computer was down- no reservations.
Luckily there was seating available. We enjoyed some cocktails and our meal, but my wife and I both noticed that our waitress just wasn't "bringing it".
We witnessed her fellow waitperson conversing with patrons, describing the food and some whiskey. We both had questions regarding our order but never had any relationship with our waitress other than taking our order and delivering it.
After our meal, we ordered dessert. We we never offered coffee or a chance to order another cocktail. Our check was delivered before we finished.
We felt our experience would have been much better if we had "drawn the other straw", and were served by her counterpart.
Had reservations and were seated immediately. Pleasant dining room. Great whisky menu and flights. Food was tasty, I enjoyed the surf and turf and was easily accomodated when I wanted to swap out the vegetable. On the other hand, the Mac and Cheese will not satisfy any connoisseur of the dish. I would recommend this restaurant.
My husband and I went to Jack & Tony's on New Year's Eve. That evening, the restaurant only offered a limited Prix Fix menu from which to make dinner selections. With only having a specific menu, we both thought the food would be much better than it was. I started with the warm spinach salad, which was delicious. My husband ordered the cold crab. I didn't try it, but his only comment after tasting my salad was "I should have ordered that." I had the filet mignon as the main course. OK...definitely nothing special. Very similar to a steak you'd expect from Outback. Husband's ahi steak had so much black pepper on top it was impossible to taste the fish. Again, "I should have ordered what you did" was his only comment. Service was prompt and polite. Nothing bad, but nothing much to brag about either. Would I go to Jack & Tony's again? Probably not. With drinks (2 each) and gratuity, the final bill was $172. For that amount, we could go elsewhere and have a better meal.
This place may be known for their whiskey selection, but they have excellent cocktails, a decent wine list, and fantastic food! I hosted my office Christmas Party here and this location was perfect for it! We had a party a 8 people. I ordered a variety of appetizers for the table and everything was excellent. It is not Cattleman's, the portions are not large, but the quality of the food was exquisite. The bacon rapped scallops were cooked to perfection. The baked brie was also delicious and the crab bisque was out of this world! For cocktails I had "Rosemary's Baby" which was fantastic! It is not for the faint of heart, but for the gin and rosemary aficionado. My wife enjoyed "There will be blood" and my coworkers enjoyed their cocktails as well. My wife had a sampler of Bourbons that she found most enjoyable. Many of us ordered the Surf and Turf which included filet mignon and roasted prawns, both of which were delicious. My father had the braised short rib which I was delighted to taste and it was quite enjoyable as well. Two of my coworkers enjoyed the salmon and one enjoyed the flat iron steak. Finally, dessert was amazing! I had bananas foster, my wife had the apple tart, and others at our table enjoyed the spice cake and butter scotch. All of which were delicious!
Our server "Cayly T" was attentive, friendly, and professional. There were only two things that didn't go perfectly. My wife's steak was slightly more cooked than medium. However, my wife tends to over explain her temperature preference, so that could have easily been misunderstood. Even still, they offered her a new steak which she declined, but they comped the meal! Next my coworker received the wrong dessert, but she was very happy with the one she received and again declined receiving a new dessert. They also comped the dessert! Well, these two issues were so minute. I appreciated the gesture, but I added the price of those meals back into the tip. I was very pleased with the service and food!
The ambiance and service were impeccable and the food was tasty but I felt my pork chop, while perfectly prepared on the outer edge was a dry in the middle. My dining partner's steak was slightly overcooked as well and our bread came out 5 minutes before the end of the meal. Overall I was happy but I've had better meals for cheaper prices.
The bread was cold and the butter was hard, but the Ramos Fizz more than made up for it. The turkey dinner was so good I wanted to lick my plate. The butternut squash soup was the best I've ever had. Wish I'd gotten the bread pudding (sooo good) instead of the ho-hum pumpkin pie.
The bourbon list attracted us to this place in downtown Santa Rosa. We were not disapointed. My wife had a glass of wine (which was fine), and I had the best manhattan I've ever had - and I've been drinking them for 40 years. They marinate their own cherries and make their own bitters, and they're terrific.
The food was solid. We started with the baked Brie, which was fine. The spinach salad with bacon was very tasty. I had the flatiron steak, which was good. The star of the night was my wife's pork chop, which was exceptionally tasty and tender. We finished with bananas foster and pear spice cake, both of which were very good. Very solid food all in all, but I'd go back just for another one of those Manhattans!
Service was excellent, as was the atmosphere. We went on a rainy Wednesday night and it wasn't very crowded. We enjoyed it very much, and plan to return on our next trip to Santa Rosa.
A buddy and I decide to have dinner at a place we could get a drink. The bar menu is a long list of highend Scotch Whiskeys. They offer 4 flights to taste. Out of the 4 flights I'm told they were out of two...so I pick one. She's back with my flight (3 small pours)and tells me that they didn't have the ones listed on the menu and here are the one's the bartender offered. My friend orders soup with dinner. She returns, says the soup is 86'd (7:30pm on a Saturday). I order the New York and he orders the pork chop. My steak is more rare then med-rare as I ordered... but ok. His porkchop was perfect, just served with fried polenta that's dry and tasteless. Last, we order coffee with Baileys and they have no Baileys,maybe next time, maybe not.
This was our second visit. During our first we visit we noticed the incredible smell of fish (the fish market type) along with a underlying mustiness. Our second visit confirmed our first impression. The menu was our second disappointment. The menu is limited which is perfectly fine when including intriguing offering. Jack and Tony's only covers the simplest bases with no choices to keep you in your seat. Perhaps this is why the restaurant was only half full during a prime Friday night. We had a cocktail while looking at the menu and then decided to leave rather than have a mediocre meal in a smelly restaurant. It's disappointing.
Took 10min to get a waitress just for water and it was not busy yet. The food tasted like salt , the steak was all fat , drinks where good. They did take of the price of my steak dinner and the waitress was friendly. Its a Whisky Bar , that's why the drinks where good.
Food and service was great! Server offered to split our starters which was a nice touch. She paid just enough attention to us so that we felt attended to, but not so much that she was interrupting.
We ordered the Bone-in Pork Chop with blackberry BBQ sauce, white corn polenta cakes & braised greens and Gilled Flatiron Steak (rare) with romesco sauce, broccolini & crispy potato cake. The chop was perfectly done! Moist and tender and the blackberry BBQ sauce was a very nice surprise. The polenta cake was crispy on the outside and soft on the inside – not grainy at all. Steak came rare and the crispy potato cake made a nice bed to soak up the juices. The romesco sauce was smokey, but not overly so.
Unfortunately, I was very disappointed in my entree. My friend and I both spent about $30 each on the lobster dish. The lobster was tasty, but unfortunately, the crab portion was almost inedible as it tasted a bit odd and certainly did not have the amazing taste I expect from crab. The crab was chopped up so fine it lost about all of its integrity and taste. In addition, I was a bit surprised that a $30 lobster dish came with potatoes that seem to be just boiled as they had no flavor or seasoning and half a boiled corn on the cob. It was definitely not the the sides I expect from an establishment such as your, especially when ordering lobster.
My husband and I went here for his birthday. I had a flatiron steak and he had the ahi tuna. Both were cooked to perfection. The oysters we had as an appetizer were delicious - as if they were just plucked from the ocean. We split a wedge salad. Again a perfect addition to our meal.
The noise level when we went was almost over the top. Quite hard to talk to each other at times. I suggest they look into some kind of ceiling baffling to absorb the noise.
