The waiter tried to rush us in selecting a steak. The steak he recommended was not available. He then recommended a much larger steak that would have been too large for us and much more expensive. The steak we got was delicious but our wait for the steak was excessive. The waiter apologized for the wait unprompted so it was not the usual wait. A couple beside us arrived well after us and left at same time. We waited 45minutes for our bill. We did not like our first glass of wine. We were told to still keep it but another would be brought to us. We were charged for that first wine. The wrong side was brought to us and we were still charged for it.

Not what we expected from this high end steak house, but the food was very tasty.

We ordered 16 oz snake river strip lion along with foil gras and half Atlantic lobster. We had lobster wedge salad as appetizer and mushrooms as side order. All food exceptionally delicious and fresh! Services was fantastic! I enjoyed my bday celebration dinner with my husband here very much. It’s a pricy restaurant but worth we still come here for special occasions.

The tenderloin was one of the best I’ve ever eaten; cooked perfectly and loaded with a plethora of delicious flavors. The service was exceptional too. My only complaint (noteworthy) was Jacob’s has the absolute worst acoustics I’ve ever experienced in a restaurant. You literally have to be audible conscious and practically scream to have a conversation. Where we sat there was industrial carpet and the walls were wood or panel as opposed to sheetrock...bad combination. If they fix the acoustics then I’d rate it 5 stars. Despite the delicious food and service, I probably won’t eat here again due to the acoustics. Thank you for the wonderful meal.

The restaurant was nice and fancy, there was a nice feeling. The bread was amazing ! The steak my husband got was very dry, he ordered fuie gras and they forgot about it so he only got it half way through his steak.
I felt like there’s nothing for you to do there if you don’t eat steaks... I had the sea bass which was nice.

I was a bit disappointed with the wagyu as it had a lot of fat. Because of that, definitely not worth the price. Tenderloin was excellent. Best part was the Monkey Bread for dessert, absolutely amazing!!!

I am a fine dining aficionado, and tbh at Jacobs I paid $180 for a 5 ounce steak (most expensive one on the menu or close to) and it was a waste of money. I have only been there 2 times before (over the past few years), the first time was absolutely amazing, 2nd was just so-so, and this time was a total waste. I don't know if it's just the hype has worn off or something but seriously... I don't think I'll be going there again. Ps Bluebloods at Casa Loma was legit 🙏🏼

My boyfriend and I went in for our anniversary, the staff was absolutely amazing. Polite, attentive, knowledgeable. I’m a pescitatian so they helped make my menu experience perfect. Cocktails were superve & totally worth trying. We both enjoyed every part of the meal 100%. And the service was nothing less than perfect. We’ve both worked in restaurants before, and have never seen anywhere work like such a team and so fluidly all night long.
It was amazing, we’re gonna make it an anniversary tradition!

The team at Jacobs always work hard to ensure an enjoyable experience; this visit was no exception. They use top quality ingredients that are selectively sourced, meticulously prepared, and then served with a fluid service that almost seems effortless. With maintenance of these high standards, Jacobs will always reign as the best steak in town. Thank you, team. I look forward to my next visit.

It was our first time to Jacobs. We came especially because you offer Halal steaks. The entire experience was amazing from beginning to end. I appreciate the fact that you accommodate to different dietary restrictions (i.e. no bacon in the Caesar salad). It would be good if you can provide French fries that aren't fried in duck fat. Hope to come back soon.

First off, it was a tad harder than expected to find the restaurant as the exterior is very nondescript, and with the snow starting to pile up, the little sign outside easy to miss. Once inside though, the decor was modern and nice.

It being my first time, and knowing the cost, I was expecting a more intimate fine dining experience, but that was not the case, as there a several tables of business professionals. Some were actually just having a dinner meeting. So the atmosphere was much louder than expected, especially with a boisterous table beside us. I could barely hear my girlfriend across the table while speaking normally.

Onto the food, we ordered the Caesar salad, a side of Potatoes, half-order of mushrooms and for the meats, a 60-day aged 18 oz PEI bone-in striploin and a 4 oz cut of A5 Black Tajima-Hokkaido striploin. This was plenty for the two of us. The PEI striploin was great, and the A5 AMAZING. I wish I could have afforded more. The sides were alright; the fries were nothing particularly special. The Caesar salad prepared table side was fun, and tasty.

It was my girlfriend's birthday so in the end they had a candle-lit plate with 2 pieces of chocolate. I thought there might have been more, but I guess this was nice.

Altogether the bill was around $385, which was quite steep. The service and food were good but I wasn't convinced that it was good enough to justify the cost. A return visit would have to be reserved for a special occasion where price isn't a factor.
