Jams - NYC
Fun, attractive restaurant. Friendly and attentive service. I have some allergy issues, they took them very seriously and were fabulous in addressing them. My husband and I will return.
Great area and cute atmosphere but incredibly overpriced for mediocre food.
I went for the famous chicken, but I was greatly disappointed. Fortunately, the server, who seemed clueless, only brought us one order to share even though we had each ordered the chicken. I ordered cheese plate. It came with only two cheeses. In my world a cheese plate should have at least 3 choices. I will say the 2 portions were of a good size, but I would have rather had three choices.
It was great!
Il locale e’ molto carino, la qualità del cibo scarsa, ma assolutamente imbarazzanti sono la pulizia del locale e la professionalità del personale di servizio. I tavoli in legno hanno le fessure piene di molliche e pezzetti di cibo, per non parlare del bagno, con le mattonelle di rivestimento rotte, la tavoletta del water rotta, oltre che sporco e male odorante. Ed il prezzo?....assolutamente inadeguato.
Ristorante assolutamente da evitare!
Great food (breakfast, lunch & dinner), friendly staff, nice bar.
- service was chaotic and unorganized
- blueberries are $20 a bowl
- toast is $5 for two slices of bread
I live in the area, so I’ve been to Jams several times. This visit was extremely disappointing. Dishes that we usually like we’re terrible. Prices here are high because it’s a hotel restaurant and near Central Park so prices are raised for tourists... that didn’t bother me when the food was good because I like the atmosphere. However, when their signature chicken dish ( that 3 of us ordered) comes served sitting in at least a cup of oil ... and the shaved vegetable salad that used to be delicious shaved vegetables is not a cold slaw mix .. the high prices become intolerable.
Great for brunch when visiting NYC for the weekend
What a miserable experience. We arrived and told the host that we were celebrating a birthday. They said they would bring cake and a candle. We ate dinner and waited. And waited. They never did.
And then, there was a hair in my food. And it wasn’t mine. Don’t. Eat. Here.
As usual JAMS never disappoints! On this visit my two girls & I stayed at the One hotel again & had the most delicious breakfast at Jams! Katherine, the manager & Salvador our server were an amazing team. They made my little girls so happy with yummy homemade pastries, chocolate pancakes, crispy chicken sandwich & my favorite the “Acme smoked salmon over everything Bagel with cream cheese”!! Delectable & addictive!! Please keep Katherine forever she makes our visit special every time! We will be back soon! Kate
We met at Jams as we all arrived at 1 Central Park for a girls weekend. The food is outstanding, this time I ordered the burger and it was the best burger ever!!!!! Thank you Jams team and many compliments to the chef! We will be back next year, you never disappoint!
Enjoyed a wonderful Birthday celebration
Had a business dinner and really enjoyed the food. Pasta was very fresh and better than a lot of restaurants in the city. Service was on point. Don’t love the set up of the bar and restaurant. Seems like eating in an airport or something but not a big deal with good food and service. Would go back.
When I entered Jams I was seated at a lovely table near the big windows. My server immediately came over. He was extremely nice very caring they I was happy and always approached me to see if everything was ok with a smile.
Salvador was my server and he was as I said wonderful and hope when I return he will be my server again.
Great food and ambiance! Loved the indoor plants. The service was a bit slow, but they were friendly and overall a great experience!
Chicken with salsa verde is the best chicken that I ate in NYC!! Ask for the fried fingerling potatoes as a side.Friendly staff and good ambience.
Wine by the glass, a little pricey. $25 for chardonnay is nuts. Food very good and plentiful!
Excellent food and service! We had the shaved salad, carrots, poke and some of the best mussels ever in a light meal before a show and food was wonderful. The service was excellent all around. Great experience!
My husband and I went to Jams on a date night out before going to see Hamilton. It was a bit of a special occasion as we don’t often get dates nights without our 4 year old joining us. This restaurant offered an amazing menu, friendly and sophisticated staff, and even brought us complimentary glasses of champagne to enjoy our evening out! We had the risotto and gnocchi and it’s was delectable! Highly recommended a visit here!
Loved it so much we came back for brunch . Hake, fried chicken , cavatelli all outstanding.
Second time back here. Another good meal with excellent service. I have to say there was a mix up with my meal, but the manager made right by it -- in fact went overboard. Other restaurants could learn a lesion from Jams. I will be back.
Excellent food, excellent service (Dora). I don't have more to say, but needed 50 characters....
Great . Food as delicious
Pre birthday dinner for my girlfriend. The waiter Bruce was excellent. Appetizers, drinks, entree and dessert were all excellent!
Amazing food and incredible cocktails! Very cool and hip setting. Great service. Dishes are small and expensive but worth it.
I can't believe this was my first time at Jams! The atmosphere is beautiful and welcoming. The service was excellent. The menu was interesting and the food was tasty. The dessert was beautifully plated and rich. I shall return!
Not quite my Jam. I found the portions small and over-priced. Also, this restaurant presents as healthy but we found the food quite oily, like the kind of oily that leaves a film on your mouth. That said, the flavor was wonderful and everything seemed very fresh. The restaurant was responsive to allergies and willing to alter dishes where possible. I am dairy free and often gluten free. Not terrible but in NYC, with so many options, probably won't be back.
Service and food were excellent! We shared the pastry tray and then ordered the chocolate pancakes and salmon lox on a bagel. So yummy!!!
Restaurant week choices were a little skimpy and just not exceptional. The restaurant functions as a hotel dining room, and that one-size-fits-all demand keeps the décor and experience for being what you'd want for a nice dinner out.
Great space. Good food. Good drinks. Love the vibe. We were able to dine during NYC Restaurant Week which was definitely a great value.
Because of the construction inside, voices were super loud. They need to add some sound panels to the temp sheetrock in there. Will wait till they are done before going back. Always love the place and the food!
A delightful find and a delicious meal with topnotch waitstaff....
I was disappointed. Maybe it was because it was a Sunday Night with a threatened blizzard and a sparse crowd and not the top chef, but here's what was good, the bean soup (which could have been hotter) the fingerling potatoes and the poke (outstanding) the bass was just good, the chicken was disappointing because it was swimming in too much butter. Amoxacillan [sic] was a big hit, Winter is Coming, not as good.
Fine service and food in an excellent location.
The place seemed crowded because of ongoing construction that a wall had been constructed to hide. There is just one restroom in the restaurant and others are upstairs in the hotel that houses the restaurant which is her inconvenient. But overall a fine option at the location.
A very nice restaurant. Went before a Broadway show. Friendly staff and the food was very good. We had the Mussels were so tender best I have ever had. I enjoyed the Grassfed Strip Steak. Cooked perfectly over a bed of lettuce. I would definetly return to this restaurant.
Everything about the evening at Jams was perfect from the menu to the service to the maitre 'd. Oh and of course the food was ah-mazing. Best kale salad we have ever had and the chicken was delicious...as was the poke. The pot de creme was over the top. Can't wait to try the sister restaurant Barbuto.
Amazing food and setting! Really enjoyed the menu
The rissotto was way to salty
Extremely average brunch food. Would not recommend.
