Amazing whiskey selection and very knowledgeable bar tenders. Whiskey service was 5+stars. The food paired well with the whiskeys but was a little slower to come out. Will definitely be back for more food and whiskey.

The meal started out with high expectations with over 2800 whiskeys and a promise of ribeye steak. Well the first three whiskeys we selected were out. We should have been concerned when the waitress described the ribeye simply as “ a juicy piece of meat”. The ribeye was not a ribeye, upon our comment, initially the manager said it was cut in half for presentation. However how can you have two pieces of meat with different thickness, doneness and appearance? Also, not juicy. The taste and texture were inconsistent with ribeye, maybe a sirloin or hanger but not ribeye. Call back the manager who at that point admitted the chef wasn’t happy with the rib eyes cut so created a palate of some other cuts. She said at that point she could bring out a ribeye. Out came a ribeye very thin, but s ribeye. But not $49 ribeye. Overall the experience was one of the most disappointing and reflecting inferior service and kitchen staffs

You go to this place for the Whiskey - it has about a zillion kinds and an "adviser" - but the food was remarkably good as well - very rich - and for desert they had the best beignets I'd had since Cafe du Monde - maybe better.

This is a bar/restaurant that has, literally, the biggest and best selections of whiskey on the East Coast. The whiskey experts can walk you through anything you desire. If you love bourban, single malts, rye of anykind, this is a must go to place. Food is decent but not why you go there.

Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the assortment of whiskeys, which was enormous and generally impressive. However, it took her between 30-40 minutes to circle back to ask us if we wanted any more drinks. You practically had to tackle her to get her to acknowledge you. The chicken skins were pretty terrible and I would not order them again, but the rabbit ragout was okay and so was the steak that my boyfriend ordered. Generally, the food is over-priced, and we ended up going across the street for a second dinner.

We went here because my husband loves bourbon. This is the place to go - I think there were over 700 choices - a bit overwhelming. He got a bourbon flight that was all exclusive bourbons to the restaurant. I has a tequila drink that was wonderful. We shared small plates and that was plenty for dinner. We especially liked the lamb sliders.

The service was top notch. My boyfriend was asked about his favorite bourbons and then they made a custom flight for him. The whiskey expert even came over to follow up. I enjoyed wine and all the delicious food. The hush puppies were so moist and the pot pie’s crust was delicious. The absolute best was a tie between the burrata and the oysters. Good mix of southern comfort food and twists on popular dishes from other countries. It is pricey but worth it for a special occasion or fancy night out. You could also just do drinks and small plates/apps to keep the cost down. I will be telling everyone about this place!

Excellent experience for the whiskey. Food was mediocre and service was not timed with our dining... Too many courses came out at once, we felt rushed through the food. Would go for the whiskeys /bourbons and skip the food. Definitely sit at the bar next time.

Food was great, but our meals were brought out at least ten minutes apart. It was very awkward and I think they could have done more than comped our dessert, especially with the prices they charge. Seemed a bit chintzy for what I expected. So if you want drinks, I think it’s fine. For a meal, maybe not.

 (Philadelphia)·Dined on November 11, 2017

So ill start by saying I am deaf in one ear. That coupled with the noise level made the dining room overwhelming when trying to converse.

First issue, wished us Happy B-day. Wasn't anyone's bday. Then came back and said oh sorry your here to celebrate Veteran's day. Off putting but not a big deal.

The largest negative, aside the noise level (place is all brick, stone, glass), was I ordered lamb and was given pork. (Good thing im not Muslim/Kosher) Now I ordered it medium rare. How would you serve pork MR? So food is dropped, server walks away. Doesnt come back for about 5m. She comes back I tell her this is pork. She looks at my and says yes. Had to re-explain that I ordered lamb. She said oh it was wierd that you ordered pork MR. So I questioned if they would serve pork MR, and if she had thought that was my order why did the pork come out WD. It took a while to get the order right and even then it was a solid 10m before my food was brought out. As usual in this situation my wife had to decide to eat alone or let her food get cold. I told her to eat. This is a terrible spot to be in. Now her food was a cold dish so the smart thing to do would have been to either take hers back and keep it cold while we waited of remake both and bring them out together. They did neither. So she ate, then i ate.

Even after this we werent comped the incorrect meal, a drink, an app, etc. The manager (?) Said she was sorry and offered to take us downstairs somewhere quiet and insisted we get desert (on her). We were taken downstairs to a private room to enjoy our after dinner drink and talk. This was very nice. However, we ordered a desert had our drinks and then we were charged for the desert!!!! At this point we were just over it, paid for the desert and left.

TLDR Very noisy, wrong food from what was ordered, manager promised free desert to make up for it and then we were charged for the desert. Disappointing over all.

We came here for the whisky and we were not disappointed. The "whisky expert" was extemely knowledgeable and helpful. Of course the selection of whisky was as good as any place in DC. The waitress was attentive and friendly. The food was good but average, nothing exceptional -- but then again we came for the whisky.

We were really looking forward to this place. The drinks were pricey but good. They got someone to make a recommendation for my whiskey blogging husband. Our server though was HORRIBLE. Once we finally ordered that was it. We were completely done with our first drinks and our appetizer and it took 30 mins to finally get his attention. He was disengaged, avoided our eye contact and it just completely ruined our evening.

This was our first time at Jack Rose and it was incredible. The bar staff was so knowledgeable about the bourbons. The bar is energetic and fun. Made a reservation but we were lucky to walk in to two available bar seats. My date was able to check off a few of his "rate" bourbons from his bucket list. Great night! We will most definitely be back.

We go here for the whiskey selection, and it is quite a selection! The food is pretty good. I recently had the scallops and the scotch egg, both were good, not great, but good. The wine and cocktail menus are both pretty limited to accommodate the huge book of whiskeys. Both times we've gone, service was slow, sometimes to the point of irritation, and as the night progresses, the bar gets crowded, so if you are sitting at a table near the bar people will start to crowd you, and it gets loud. But, we will definitely return, there isn't another place we know of with that wide a selection of whiskey.

We had been looking forward to visiting DC and checking out some restaurants that were "on the list". Jack Rose was one and we met friends there for dinner. The ambiance is cool - I had seen photos of the whiskey library and it is definitely cool. 2800+ options they claim! We had just had a 6 Pappy (with the Rye) flight in Chicago for $180 and JR wanted $195 for a single pour of 23 year alone (!) - other pours seemed reasonable priced. The food was simple but good - burgers, brussel sprouts, venison steak. The beer list was a surprise - great selections.
Overall, we had a nice evening but my expectations had been a little higher. I would certainly recommend trying Jack Rose.
