Nice steakhouse. I enjoyed the ambiance and service was excellent. I found the steak to be delicious but not quite worth the prices that were charged. I'd say the steak is definitely in the upper echelon of steakhouses I've visited but I've definitely walked away having had better steak for less money. This was a business meal so cost was not our highest priority but it's something I'd consider strongly if it was for pleasure.
Would highly recommend
Even great restaurants have off-nights.
I consider myself to be a regular at Jacobs, eating there for years, at least once a month. It is hands down my favorite restaurant in Toronto. Food, and service are usually perfect. Not so last Saturday though. Service, although outstandingly friendly as usual, was unequivocally slow. The slow service was made more strange and noticeable by the fact that we were told in advance that the restaurant needed the table back 90 minutes after our reservation (which, full disclosure, WE pushed back an hour and the restaurant kindly accommodated), so we thought we'd have to rush and did try to rush in order to comply with the need to be done in time and be accommodating to the restaurant in return. But we waited, and we waited and we waited. Our server was lovely but we were left waiting quite a bit.
It was my wife's birthday and I had advised the restaurant of the same via Open Table and asked that something special be done with the dessert for her to acknowledge her special day. Many other tables around us were celebrating a birthday or anniversary and each had a special message written in chocolate on their dessert plate but, disappointingly, we did not. I was left apologizing to my wife that nothing special was done for her.
I only noticed after we left the restaurant that I was charged full price for a half-order of a side dish. I'm not bothered so much by the $6 or $7 dollar overcharge (not a big deal when you spend thousands at a restaurant every year) as much as the fact that it happened on a night when other things also seemed to go not as smoothly as usual.
Jacobs is a truly outstanding restaurant, but everyone can have an off night.
The whole evening was wonderful! The wait staff's attention to detail and service was exceptional. We have already told our friends about it!
Absolutely stupendous!!! Can’t wait to return!!! Best meal ever!!!
Ordered the porterhouse from PEI. Cut my steak with just a fork. Melted in my mouth. So good!
Excellent service. Very attentive waitstaff.
Steak was amazing, sides were just ok. Service was slow, waited for bill for quite some time. Overpriced for what you get (service, experience, all in food, atmosphere).
Fabulous beyond words. The best dining experience ever
I asked for Chicago medium rare but got just chicago.
Service was great from the moment we arrived. Wine list is massive with something for everyone of discerning taste. Table side Caesar was entertaining while steaks were cooked perfectly as requested and seasoned excellently. Dessert and birthday message was sweet. Highly suggest ordering half sides for smaller parties as they are quite large.
Amazing service and food!
This was a great meal. Attentive service. Nice ambience. It's not 5 stars only because of the price, which is very high, but you could argue you do get what you pay for hear. I would definitely recommend it for a special occasion.
This was my 2nd time dining there and it was as good as the first. Amazing steaks, very pricey but perfectly cooked. Service was top notch, the take home muffin was the best.
We really enjoyed the service, the servers were amazing. The only complaint we had was that we ordered our steaks medium (the 40oz porterhouse and 14oz Wagu ribeye), but they came out medium rare, as soon as we cut into the steaks they were extremely red and bloody. Eventually they cooked it again on the grill but we were full at that point and didn't eat it until the next day. It was kind of unfortunate considering our bill was over $700.00, we expected that the steak would be cooked perfectly. They didn't even apologize for that. But overall, my fiancé and I enjoyed our dinning experience there, it's quite an experience.
Very pricey but worth every cent. The popover bread is so delicious the servers have to remind you that the steak is coming.
Superb service. Excellent dining experience. Highly recommend.
Awesome as usual! Thx
Best steak house in Toronto!
Amazing selection of beef including wagyu from Japan, Australia, and USA. If you're going here, you should really splurge on the Japanese wagyu - the most buttery, marbled steak you could ask for. Worth the price. They are also very accommodating with sharing plates so go with friends so you can try different steaks. The bone marrow is also super fatty and if you're already eating wagyu, I'd suggest skipping the bone marrow lest you be overloaded with fat. I would definitely recommend and would absolutely come back.
Amazing place overall
Everything was good but the food was warm and not hot. They made up for it but just wasn’t expected. We could have always asked it be heated more but we kind of just ate. Everything was good though (flavour and all)! Still one of my favourite restaurants
Was the best steak dinner we have both ever had, will definitely be back!!
Overall it was a good dining experience, the table beside us knew one of the managers/sommelier and asked for wine recommendations repeatedly, from cocktails, white wine and red. The manager/sommelier came back multiple times and his behind basically kept brushing against our food. I shifted them away from the edge of the table a few times but we had a few different side dishes and there was only so much room on the table. He just kept leaning lower and lower to speak each time he came back, even one of the nearby waiters noticed. If it wasn’t for that, would have been a 5/5 dining experience.
Amazing food. Best intoronto
Great meal, amazing steaks. Above and beyond all expectations.
Great service! Love this place.
Amazing service. Amazing food. Gem of a place. Table side Caesar salad was outstanding. Must try the monkey bread for dessert!
Not sure how to use 50 words when all you need is one: perfection.
This was the best meal I had in my life and the service was absolutely impeccable as always.
Had a great time. Service was spot on and the venue was great for a special occasion.
Amazing - Jacobs never disappoints!
Great attention to detail
Perfect meal. One of my favorites. Keep coming back.
Everything was amazing. Service was great and very professional , they make the salad in front of you. Steak was cooked perfectly. We went there for our anniversary, so they surprised us with champagne. The only downside I have to say is it was a bit noisier than I expected. Otherwise, everything else was great.
As usual, Jacob's never disappoints. The service here is always excellent with the high price tag. The steak is always cooked to perfection and they offer half sides so that you don't overwhelm yourself with too much of 1-2 things. It's great for people who like more variety in their sides. A memorable experience every time we dine here, if you can afford it - it's definitely worth it!
I was recommended to go to Jacobs and Co by a friend. My father and I were in Toronto visiting and I surprised him with dinner here Wednesday night (2/21/18). Upon arrival I immediately noticed that this is a restaurant that takes pride in its appearance and it is a beautiful place. Our waitress was very nice and knowledgeable regarding the different meats and tastes. I don’t remember her name but she was wonderful and did a wonderful job.
My father ordered a ribeye cooked MR and I ordered a tenderloin cooked MW. When we placed our order we were informed that it takes a little for the steaks to be cooked and if we wanted any appetizers to let her know. About 45 minutes after our order was taken a manager came to our table and told us that our steaks were “resting” and it should t be much longer. My dad and I took it as there was an error with our order and they didn’t want to admit to it.
Well after waiting close to an hour and a half we got our steaks. I cut my steak and immediately saw that it was raw, not Medium well as I asked it to be prepared. They took my steak back and told me it should be about 5 minutes. I waited another 15 minutes for my steak to return. My father and I both agree that the steaks were just as good as other steak houses we have been too and we’re disappointed in the overall meal.
For a meal that costed close to $300 (no apps, two steaks, 3 side dishes, 2 beers and 2 glasses of wine) we were extremely disappointed. Throughout the time we were waiting for our meals we expressed our concerns regarding the wait time and at no point did the manager come over to us, besides the one time to inform us of our meat resting. As I mentioned in the beginning, this is a place that you pay for “the name” just as you pay more for a pay of Nike running shoes. We have plans to return to Toronto, however we will not be returning to Jacobs and Co. extremely disappointed in this restaurant and management. Will not recommend to others.
