    I have enjoyed Jack Dusty on numerous occasions and keep coming back. Maybe it was because it was Monday night and maybe the chef was off, but the main courses were not up to standard. It was a pleasure to not have the normal high level of decibels - both because it was Monday and the depth of the summer - but it should not be at the expense of the customary high quality food preparation.

    I really really appreciated our waitress's patience since my date took forever to park and since we hadn't seen each other in 5 years, we took our time ordering. His beef minestrone was chock full of good stuff and my smoked fish dip is always great. The drinks are priced oddly, mine was 21 and my date's was 15 and I guess it was due to the alcohol choice. Will cut down on what I order from now on, but you can't beat the food, service and vista! Bravo!

    The restaurant is by reservation only, however they make you wait for more than one hour to get a table. We were waiting an hour and 15 minutes to get our table, then after seated we had to wait for at least 15 more minutes for the server to come to our table. The manager passed by our table asking how we felt, I complained. This resulted in the server getting upset and treating us with attitude. Horrible service. It was not only with my family, others complaining too. We’re not going anymore

    Seemed a bit chaotic and short staffed. Valet was backed up and although we had a reservation there was still a wait for a desirable table. Our server was not as attentive as past experiences, delay with drinks and appetizers/bread. We love Jack dusty but the staff seemed off their game last night.

    Anniversary dinner and it was delicious and they made us feel special. The army of servers were amazing. Our server greeted us with glasses of champagne for the occasion, which I mentioned during booking so they pay attention to the notes you put in. Food was excellent!

    excellent food- excellent ambience. Jeremy was attentive and descriptive with his knowledge of not only the menu but, in storytelling- those who presented the loaf of bread were called “Jack Dusty’s” Sit on the patio for a glimpse of the gorgeous sunset. A beautiful evening with one of our close friends. Intimate and lovely- a great night at the Ritz. Thank you!
