gorgeous friday evening dinner. thank you!
Our waitress maria was amazing. Food was awesome, vibe was fun. We sat outside and the staff was so accommodating to my big dog who joined us! Great night.
Great food and lovely outdoor seating! Fun to share plates with friends and family :)
It is the only place I've given a low score until today The employee who met at the door was very rude, we went without sitting despite the reservation.
I love this place. It always exceeds my expectations. The food is delicious, the service is outstanding and the ambiance is so fun! We celebrated my daughter’s birthday and they made it a point to make her feel special by singing Happy Birthday. Thank you for your thoughtfulness & exceptional service!!
Delicious cold brew.
It was a nice experience, food was good and the price reasonable
The floral outdoor area is so cute. Perfect for dinner with friends!
Love this restaurant. Amazing for brunch. Great cocktails and wines by the glass. Reasonable prices.
Great cozy charming eatery with fabulous food!
Everything tasted great. The salmon, the beet dip, the salad, the cauliflower.
all yum !
The wine in carafe was good value and tasty.
Couldn't ask for a better lunch spot. Virgin Mohito was to die for.
Great atmosphere for a friend's brunch and wonderful service!
I absolutely loved the service at this joint! Drinks were also spot on! My trouble was with their food, a lot of the veg options weren't as innovative or even flavorful as their meat counterparts. This is typical though, not something I would hold against them. The shakshuka is also very watery! :( not much going on there either.
Absolutely wonderful and refreshing dining experience! After years of Manhattan dining, we were most impressed with the professionalism of the staff. We were made to feel most welcomed, and that we were truly respected guests. Not hurried, not pressured...very responsive to requests. Food was well prepared and unique. The staff really seem to enjoy their work as a team. Delightful!
The food was not inedible, but it wasn't particularly good. It seemed like something I would throw together for lunch if I was cleaning out the fridge. Not impressed. Spent way too much money for food that would be a mediocre meal if I cooked it myself. The best part was the grilled pita (which is very good). Staff was extremely nice and helpful.
Always a great spot with friendly service, yummy food, good tunes.
I went here for lunch with my fiancé and we loved the laid back atmosphere and food was great and so was the service!
I think the food was okay-- I didn't really find anything special about the meals that we ordered. We were put in a table that was a bit too small for three people, and did not have much room. The waitresses were really nice though, and I definitely enjoyed the mint lemonade. It's a nice cute brunch place that I would go with my friends.
Food was ok, not too flavorful or spectacular. Good service
Great ambiance, food and service. We especially enjoyed the happy hour. Will definitely return.
I had a great time. The service was excellent, the meal was really tasty and the restaurant did a great job of observing Covid guidelines while still creating a relaxed atmosphere.
Food was great. Service was great. I don’t know why they felt the need to say I missed my reservation. I was 5 mins early. I had a great time until I saw something accusing me of standing them up. I would never.
Awesome outdoors and service!
Great drinks too
great it was really great fun great
Absolutely freezing and a packed inside
So nice to be able to eat indoors with my friends for the best meal, brunch.
Great cocktails !!!
Great food and service, will definitely go back soon!
Made a same-night reservation here after a disappointing sit down at another west village spot with terrible service- JWF totally saved our night. We arrived and were seated right away, outdoor seating arrangements were so warm and beautiful for winter. The restaurant had run out of chairs, and because we were given stools to sit on, they paid for a round of drinks which was so generous and thoughtful. Drinks were delicious as were the grilled halloumi, the schnitzel, and the chocolate lava cake. JWF still has it.
The service was great, the outdoor space isn’t the most comfortable or spacious, but the food more than makes up for it. The drinks are great as well.
The team takes cleanliness and safety seriously.
Super great option for outdoor dining! The service was fantastic and the food was brought out quickly.
Jack’s Wife Freda is amazing! We went here for date night and absolutely loved the food and drinks. The menu is very unique and the outdoor dining setup is beautiful and warm!
Honestly this place was and is overrated. They crammed the outdoor area so much that it was not even 3 feet apart between tables- not socially distant whatsoever. The waitress constantly had to ask people to scoot in to get between tables. Food was solid, but this uncomfortable setup is not okay.
I always love my experience at this restaurant. The Host was so kind to me, and made sure I got seated even though all the tables were full. The heat lamps made the experience cozy even on a 30 degree night.
Intreging menu, coupled with nice outdoor space and attentive service
Love Jacks Wife Freda but sometimes it seems there’s no lint in making a reservation with the amount of wait time involved
It was amazing service, food, ambience. I just wish the tables were father apart, with covid.
My husband and I enjoyed an excellent brunch at Jack’s Wife Freda. the patio was busy, but the service kept up and made sure everyone was taken care of in a timely manner. It was a great experience and I can’t wait to go back again soon.
After reserving the table for 2pm they gave us the table at 2.40 . Served hot tea to other folks waiting except us ( only min white around ) would not recommend this place to anyone
