Love this restaurant and come every time I visit NYC.
The staff was SO friendly and the food was amazing. I had to change the reservation to add 2 more people the day before and they were able to accommodate us no problem. It is a very small restaurant but we went as a group of 8 and were very comfortable.
Very cute place. Good food. Need to make reservation because it is a small place.
Good location in SOHO to go shopping afterwards.
Had an amazing experience and the food was just perfect! The staff was friendly and fun and made great recommendations. Can't wait to go again next time I'm in town.
This was our first time there and we were a party of 9 (make a reservation) the food was awesome, the service was great and the waiters were personable. They were aware that we had a show to make and made sure we were out on time! Would definitely return!
Don't take reservations if it's still going to take 30 minutes to seat people
We were a large group of 12 and we made a reservation on open-table two weeks prior that was confirmed with an email the day before. However, when we came to the restaurant they said they did not have reservation under my name. I showed them my email confirmation and the wonderful hostess told us that we may have to wait a few minutes but that they could seat use shortly. Within a few minutes she seated us and our waiters took our orders and it was an overall lovely experience. The staff is great and they accommodated our large group with ease. I will tell everyone I know to eat here!
Fun place, very crowded. Tables in the middle, where one sits next to others, hard not to overhear their conversation.
If you like a vibrant scene with good, authentic food, go for it!
Most bad experience in New York, waist of time and money
Busy restaurant, unique food. Happy we made a reservation!
Had the Salt & Pepper Eggplant the first time I ate here and have been thinking about it ever since. Great attention to quality with every dish. Best waiter ever. Gets loud fast - it's a snug space.
Apps and desserts better than entrees.
Terrible staff. Too expensive. Rude servers. Refused extra slice of toast. Got annoyed when we asked for water top up. Absolutely awful! Will NEVER go again
We went to Jack's for my friend's Bachelorette Party brunch on a Friday - we had a reservation for 11 but didn't get seated until 11:30. The host was SO great and accommodating, kept us updated and even had a bottle of champagne on the table to thank us for waiting patiently. All of the food was incredible, and Craig was a fantastic server. One of our guests asked for a glass of ice water and after she finished it, another one appeared without her noticing he dropped it off. So attentive and considerate! We would definitely come here again!
I had heard great things about Jack's Wife Freda so was really excited to try it out. Unfortunately, it seems the rave reviews were very specific to their brunch and NOT to their dinner. Their dinner options were bland at best. I tried to the fish special but the consensus amongst the 18 people that attended the dinner was that the food was "decent." The noise levels were incredibly high and required us to almost shout to be heard. Part of this is the byproduct of the small, quant atmosphere which is really cute. Overall, I would go back to try the brunch but won't ever go back for dinner.
This is social dining, casual, convivial, warm and enveloping. We loved it! The food is very good, eclectic, imaginative, and thoughtfully prepared. Wine selections are unpretentious but good. This is a place to go back to again and again.
Love the food, great spot, but very crowded. We had a larger group, 6 people, so made a reservation. The restaurant did not accommodate us. We had to wait 45 minutes to be seated despite booking in advance. That part sucked, everything else was great.
It was great food and fun- only downfall was that I made a reservation for 10:30, checked in about 10 minutes before. Yet, was still seated over 40 minutes after my reservation.
we loved it
we will recommend to everyone
we wish that we lived closer
we will be back as soon as possible
Very nice ambiance. Staff was very friendly.
The food at the restaurant was good with very unique dishes. However, our waitress was unbelievably rude to our group and adamantly refused to split our check. I understand if it is the restaurant's policy to not split checks, but it became an issue when she conveyed the message to us in a such a demeaning manner. Definitely not a way to treat customers.
Overall, I didn't think it lived up to the hype. Definitely a cute place. Could see it being very romantic for 2, but with a group of 6 it was way too loud to hear everyone. It's small so between voices of other diners and the music (which I did ask to turn down a bit - and I'm 24, not hard of hearing) it's pretty though to have a conversation. Food was solid but nothing to write home about. Between our 6 entrees, 2 apps and 2 deserts, I would say the only items worth eating again were the cheese appetizer and the sandwich with a fried egg on top. Takeaway: great for Instagram, not great for a memorable experience.
Very good service. Nice to go with children. Very good food
Amazing experience ,great food ,great atmosphere and service.Highly recommended .Make sure to book a table in advance or you gonna have to wait . I will come back for sure .Thank you for making our morning enjoyable <3
Small restaurant but accommodated our party of 6. Menu limited but food quality was consistently good. Casual environment.
LOVE Jack's... always have, always will! Never ceases to disappoint, no matter who I'm with or what time I go.
We spent a nice evening at Jacks wife Freda. Nice - not more, not less. We had a reservation but had to wait more than 30 minutes for our table, but got a Prosecco offered. The food was ok, but not outstanding. The service was super.
Love love this special SOHO spot. We were in NYC for just a few short days but this was our favorite. You need to get reservations and it is tight, but that is what makes it so much fun. The Peri Peri chicken and fried zucchini were our favorites. Get a glass of the Cote due Rhone with it and just enjoy life and the vibrance of this little treasure!
Good food, especially the burger (and fries!). Energetic atmosphere, nice waiters.
i was amazed but the appetisers, all were excellent and all totally fresh/new and balanced,
the lamb and aubergine lasagna was great, but i should of ordered a side salad. a great night out. sc
Jack's Wife Freda is an absolute must. If you can, come with 5 friends so you can make a reservation otherwise plan to wait a while. It's worth the wait though. The food and drinks are fantastic. Perfectly poached eggs & yummy haloumi, delicious duck bacon, tasty watermelon mimosas, great iced coffee. The service was unparalleled; vibrant, friendly, and on-top-of-it.
Lovely place with a good atmosphere. Their sandwiches are very tasty and special. Wafles more ordinary and due to that a bit pricy.
We came to JWF through an internet recommendation for brunch. We were glad we made a reservation since there were people waiting in line. Staff are very helpful and attentive. Food is quite simple for the price, but nice nevertheless. Notice they charge 20% extra to groups of 6 or more. Nice authentic hip atmosphere.
Breakfast bowl got high marks. The green shakshuka was tasty but a little watery. The duck prosciutto was delicious. Service was excellent.
Tasty food, trendy atmosphere and friendly staff! Took a couple weeks to find a reservation but it was definitely worth the wait.
Everyone at JWF was so great. They were very accommodating when we had at add to our already large size group. The food was amazing. We will definitely be coming back :)
Too little food
Appetizers are always delicious. Entrees are consistently good. Cocktails at this location were a little disappointing.
Great food, great service, I would definitely recommend.
