A wonderful place with a very nice ambiance. During the spring and summer it is great to eat out on the patio. I love the third Thursday nights of the month with the amazing live jazz music.

What can I say. Nothing was edible. The service was slow. I should have followed my instincts and left when I arrived.

For being an Italian restaurant we were very disappointed. Everyone in our party who ordered Italian was not happy. However, the prime rib and salad was good. Service was good until we got our food, then we did not see our server.

Jacobi's is now a standard in Walla Walla. It is good. We had the butternut squash ravioli (good but a little sweet) and the mushroom purse pasta (very yummy, very rich). Sitting outside in the evening is the best. It was noisy inside.

Underwhelmed by the food. Had the mushroom sacchetti - it was ok, but not as awesome as previous reviews had led me to believe. The sauce was so heavy that you missed the sublety of the mushrooms. And it was covered in extra parmesan which was far more than I would have put on it myself and led to the dish being too salty as well. Would have been better to have served the extra parmesan on the side.
On the positive side, waitstaff was friendly, helpful and didn't bat an eye with minor adjustments.

Jacobi's website led me to expect a more elegant restaurant. If you like Olive Garden and Red Lobster you'll be fine here. If you are looking for a fine dining experience, look elsewhere.

3 generations went there for the All You Can Eat Spaghetti and Meatballs. There wasn't just one type of sauce, but 4! And choice of meatballs or italian sausage. Salad and bread included. The food was wonderful! The service was great! It was a hot day, we were there in late afternoon, and were able to sit outside, in the shade. The ambience was perfect for everyone. Totally recommend Jacobi's to anyone looking for fantastic food and service!

Outstanding service - extremely friendly, prompt and polite.

Food - zero stars. The Mizithra pasta was way too salty. The Prime Rib ordered as Medium Rare came out beyond well done. Sent back to the kitchen and then was informed it wasn't possible to cook Prime Rib other than well done. Huh? The waitress let me substitute for the New York steak. Ordered New York Medium Rare and it came out Blue Rare. Gave up. Paid the $100+ tab and left extremely disappointed.

Won't be back for the food and feel really bad for the great waitress who has to serve it!

We sat outside - unfortunately the music (which was a great selection) was too loud; so it was hard to have a discussion for a group of 6. Food was good - not great. Service was good - not great. I thought the prices were a little above the value.

My group of girls friends and I loved the food and the staff. We had made later reservations but were ready to eat early, called and they were more than happy to get us in early! The martini's were great too! I would recommend this restaurant to everyone.

We made reservations knowing that it was a busy weekend and we were going to need it. The reservations were for 7:15. We were finally seated at 7:25 but while we waited we listened to the hostess and cook argue about charges on a bill. It was obnoxious. The cook should have just said his peace and walked away but instead he decided to argue in front of everyone. When we were finally seated she brought us back to the train car. I can't discribe to you the stench that overwhelmed us as we went back there. It was full of people and the atmosphere was horrible and stinky. She sat us under the air conditioning vent the was blowing out fridgid air. the amount that was being charged for food and the quality did not go together. YUCK

The outside dining area is quite pleasant with tables well-spaced, burbling fountain etc. Waitstaff seemed disorganized and unsure what to do when. Proper drink (gin martini) arrived after 3 tries. Salad was bagged ($1/bag type--lettuce, cabbage, carrot mix with 2 leaves of an Italian lettuce), and it was lukewarm. Eggplant parmesan was paper thin eggplant with breading double its width on both sides served on top spaghetti (menu said "with spaghetti") with some kind of white cheese melted on top--soggy, greasy and terrible! Spaghetti and meatballs were equally awful. Although we hadn't eaten lunch and were hungry, we gave up after eating perhaps 1/3 of our meals.
