The food was outstanding. My date was a bourbon connoisseur and he was in heaven. Our waiter wasn't exactly a warm fuzzy server and had a tendency to walk away before we were finished asking questions or ordering but he did know his bourbon and was great at conversing about bourbon and making suggestions. Eventually the Bourbon expert Chris came over. 24 years old but was incredible with information and very personable. If you like high end bourbon this is your place.

The noise level in both the downstairs dining room and upstair bar area was excessive. In addition, while I appreciate the delivery of the bottle of liquor that you've ordered to the table, it doesn't need to sit there the entire time you are drinking. The tables are small with limited room for all the menus and other items.

One of our party ordered an anniversary edition of a particular distillery and the bottle delivered to the table was of an 'independent bottler' and the only reference to the expected brand was a Dymo label affixed to the top of the bottle by Jack Rose Dining Saloon. At $20/oz., one expects to see the actual distillery output, not some middleman. In addition, the explanation provided by one of the staff was a bunch of bafflegab in our estimation.

It was described as a common practice. I can assure you, at $20/oz. in other establishments, you're getting something out of a bottle done by the distillery. Not to mention if you're going to deliver bottles to be viewed by the customer with Dymo labels, you better have a crisp explanation.

I won't be back, nor will I recommend JRDS to anyone.

Such a unique experience with more than 2700 bottles of bourbon and whiskey. Extremely knowledgeable waitress and bar master to help with selections. The food was unique and yummy and the pecan pie was second to none! Even with some in our party who weren’t bourbon drinkers, it was a Wonderful experience!

Enjoyed 2 whiskey flights and dinner before seeing Hamilton at the Kennedy Center nearby. The flights were expertly curated, and the food was delectable! I had the Halibut, which was expertly cooked and was tasty and juicy. My friend had the rabbit ragu that had great texture and was also tasty.
Came here again after the show for cocktails and they were well balanced and delicious! Chris, the whiskey advisor, was great and led us to some tasty choices.

Dinner was great, drinks were greaf, after dinner drinks were amazing. Putting our names in for Dram and Grain when we sat down made the timing perfect, and Andy was a fantastic bartender, mixologist, and story teller. This was only my second visit, but everything was fantastic and I will definitely be back.

This was my second time, but first with my wife. Her chicken pot pie was good, my lamb was to die for. Dessert was excellent as well, and the brussel sprouts were the best I've ever had. But of course that's not why you're coming here, and Chris Leung, the whiskey advisor was fantastic. He was absolutely on point with his recommendations. We had a fantastic time.

I received a gift certificate from some good friends of mine to Jack Rose as a going away gift for my transfer to Washington D.C. As a bourbon fan, I was incredibly excited to try this place out as it had nothing but fantastic reviews. Jack Rose lives up to the hype. Over 2,600 variations of whiskey, great ambiance, food, service, etc., I could go on. I celebrated my first time with a couple of friends and we spent several hours sampling their mixed cocktails as well as a variety of bourbon. Finished the evening with drinks and a couple cigars while watching the hockey game on their rooftop bar. I will definitely be coming back to this place....and soon!
