    CLOSED CLOSED CLOSED CLOSED CLOSED Jack's Restaurant CLOSED on Feb 1 -- despite this -- Open Table is still taking reservations for it! So, in brief, do not go to Jack's (have I mentioned it is closed?) AND DO NOT RELY ON A RESERVATION CONFIRMATION THAT YOU GET FROM OPENTABLE SINCE THEY APPARENTLY CONFIRM RESERVATIONS AT RESTAURANTS THAT NO LONGER EXIST!!!!!

    This is a joke right? We arrived and the restaurant was permanently closed. Sign in window saying it closed February 1. No notice from open table. A terrible way to find out

    This is a real gem. Fresh ingredients, interesting menu, and well prepared, reasonably price (for NYC) food. Attentive staff. Great place to meet a friend for lunch. Ask for booths or tables near the front.

    We always enjoy Jack’s when we are going to the theater. The service is excellent, as is the food. Drinks are great too! It can be a bit pricey but we don’t do this every day so it’s worth it.

    We eat at Jacks for our Wednesday Broadway matinees and it never disappoints. Today we had their black bean and bacon soup, with a tuna burger and a sesame crusted tuna salad. All was excellent and considering it’s location, Jack’s is a great value.

    Convenient to my job. It is white table cloth dining with excellent waiter service. I like the menus. You can have a hearty ample meal of just a wonderful salad. The waiters take very good direction if you have special needs or require speedy service.

    Some of food awesome,the tapas all good. We were ignored by server to the point of seriously rude although we didn't not complain abou food. The shrimp salad was the worse food I've ever been served. The shrimp way, way over cooked and the dressing was (seriously) just straight soy sauce. Yuk. Fish and chips likely good but hsd been pulled from fryer before batter was fully cooked so that seriously lowered quality.

    Very reliable place for dinner before a show, near but not actually in the Times Square area. The food is very good as are the drinks, and service is prompt but not so fast that you feel like they are pushing you out.

    The service was excellent from the minute we walked in the door. Three members of our party had the chicken pot pie which was absolutely delicious. The best I have ever had. Someone else had the Shepherd's pie which he said was very good and another friend raved about the lobster ravioli. Three of us were visiting from out of town - some of us had been there before - it is reliably an excellent dining experience.

    It was a wonderful surprise. The atmosphere and staff made you feel very welcome. They went out of their way to please and satisfy your needs and special requests. (I have food allergies which can be a problem. Nos here. They went out of their way to take care of my needs,) AND IT WAS DELICIOUS! Would definitely recommend it to friends.

    Better than average for the price and area. Food was good, Service was exceptional. Everything in the theatre district is overpriced, but Jack's provides quality food at a reasonable price for the area, with a Nichols New York vibe.

    I'm not sure I'd go out of my way to dine at Jack's given the NYC restaurant scene - but if in Times Square, and if perhaps seeing a show at the Nederlander Theatre, Jack's is the perfect pre or post dining spot. Food was quite good, as was the service and ambiance. ps My friend loved the chicken pot pie, and I enjoyed the steak salad.

    After reading all of the positive reviews of this restaurant I was shocked at how bad the food was. The restaurant has a moderate noise level and the atmosphere is fine. The wait staff was nice. However, we had a reservation for Sat night at 7:30 and yet there was no steak left to order!!! Their were six of us and both the appetizers and the entrees weren't hot enough. The butternut squash soup, the mussels and the cod were all luke warm. The only meal that was hot enough was the salmon that is served in a steamer basket. I asked for my lamb chops medium and they were were before rare and also cool. This was a get together with friends I hadn't seen in a long time and so it was even more dissappointing. I could never reccommend this restaurant.

    I was very disappointed in the quality of the food. The steak on the steak salad smelled and tasted like ... dog food? The mashed potatoes were tasteless. The butternut squash soup was so spicy (pepper, I think) as to be inedible. I went for a birthday pre-theater lunch and would not go back (except perhaps for fries and a drink at the bar because of theater location). Service was fine, but that really counts for little when the food is so bad.
