We were seated by a hostess and waited for 15 minutes for a waiter to come to our table. We received 2 refills of water but no waiter or waitress ever came so we left the restaurant.
Roast chicken salad was good but seemed like it should have been bigger. Had to ask for bread so assume it's not a "given." Waitress was wonderful and happily moved us away from poorly behaved children at next table.
We had gone for the smoked chicken, sadly it was taken off the menu and replaced with a sub par substitution. the food is always good, the service is slow but on thier game. Mgmt is top notch. Desserts were killer !!
The food has terribly deteriorated
Great convenient Midtown location, perfect for a long, late, lunch reunion with friends. Unhurried, relaxed service conducive to conversation and enjoying great comfort food and drinks. Highly recommended and close to many hotels and shopping.
I have been here 3 times so far and always very pleased. The food is fresh and prepared perfectly, everything I have tried is excellent, including desert. Lovely casual atmosphere, attentive service.
Way overpriced and poorly executed. The server barely paid attention to us. We had to ask a helper for an iced tea refill and an order of toast. Two small slices of toast are $5. Three strips of bacon are $9. Two of us ordered the “signature” ($19) poached egg dish and the eggs were hard boiled. When I mentioned this to the server, he admitted the eggs were way over cooked, but was matter of fact about it. He brought me one better cooked egg. If you can’t poach an egg, then give it up. This place is a total ripoff. We would have been better off eating at a basic diner, where they know how to cook an egg.
I had the chance to eat a Jam’s tonight. I’ll make one point from the onset; the food was great.
I’ve enjoyed every meal and dining experience I’ve had at Barbuto. However, by comparison, the Jam’s dining experience is very different. So, here it is; the restaurant runs like a machine, and depending on what you have in mind, perhaps that’s fine. One could argue that the service was a finely tuned, yet to me it felt engineered to move people in and out quickly. I felt rushed from the moment we sat down, to the moment we left, exactly 1 hour later. No one was rude, just highly efficient. We had cocktails and an appetizer that arrived together. As soon as the appetizer was finished our entrees were on the table. There was no time to order wine to pair with the food, and no offer for us to do so. I saw the host walk past us four times to see when we and other diners would be finished (he had a clipboard). We had a reservation, we would have ordered wine, we would have ordered dessert, but felt we had to make way.
Nice place - a real "buzz" - good menu, nice wines by the glass
Had chicken salad - not so much chicken in there - almost imperceptible!
Mentioned to waitress - not her fault - she was just doing her job, and very well too!
Mediocre. Marginal. Vanilla. B Flat. Ambience: Cold, starting with the decor, a style which I remember from decades ago. Food: The beef was tough. Change the menu; offer more/other selections. Service: average. The waiter forgot to bring dessert menus: you lost a sale; I lost my desire. All in all, nothing to write (home) about...But I did.
It was our second time. The first was brunch last summer and the fact that we remembered and went back this summer days a lot.
the food was perfect for Lunch.. the perfect amount of food and great taste. the fudgesicle with peanut butter granita for desert was amazing... !! I would defintely go back.
Unfortunately they had a Father’s Day buffet, we had been hoping to try their brunch menu. Most of the selections were good but some had been out for a bit.
Your paying for the proximity to theaters.
Went here for brunch to celebrate a birthday in NYC for the weekend. The atmosphere is lovely - very cool and welcoming restaurant. The service was extremely slow and the waiter seemed completely clueless, so that was disappointing. When the food arrived, it was delicious! They need to work on the service for me to come back! It wasn’t that busy to be as scattered as he was.
Love this place! Food is farm to table and outstanding. It’s on my short list of musts every time I come to NY.
Was suprzed- as I have had better meals there- but the food was indifferent. Not exactly bad- just haphazard. Not well prepared or presented. Taste was moderately OK.
Could barely get the attention of the waiter.
It has been a lunch time stand-by, but will start looking for another.
Absolutely fabulous meal! This was our second time dining at Jams, and it has become a favorite spot. The crab appetizer is a must have, and the pasta with asparagus was a stand out! I normally don’t even like pasta dishes but this blew me away. Prices are fair for Midtown, but it outweighed by the good food and ambiance. Great spot to go with friends looking to start a fun night out.
Always the best!
The service was nice and kind but not attentive or caring. We had to look for the stuff for whatever we needed. It was a birthday (i notified in the open table reservation) and not only they gave us a bar table to begin with (which we had changed for one in the dining room) but also they didn't give any special attention to the occasion (first time). Food was very tasty but both meat entrees were pretty dry. The ambience is nice but it's incredibly noisy. The bill comes pricey. I wouldn't come back for either a date or any special occasion. I mention of worth to the wine expert. Knowledgeble and professional. The wine was great, so his service.
Poke was delicious, kale salad was delicious. Mahi mahi was awful. Over cooked and rubbery. Fun ambiance but quite loud.
Delicious meal, fairly priced and a refreshing option prior to a performance at Carnegie Hall.
Our Server Sabuj was excellent, as was all of the staff, but he went above and beyond.
Would definitely return.
Our favorite restaurant in the neighborhood! Kid-friendly, roomy, DELICIOUS FOOD, the best!
Pro: Beautiful, nature-inspired, contemporary interior. Lunch was creative, delicious and generous portions offered. Con: Noise level was too loud to converse.
Jams was en excellent choice for Mother’s Day! The food and service were extraordinary! We love this place!!
The food was fabulous, Our waiter was excellent!
Will be back.
Travelling in from Melbourne, Australia, we decided to have dinner at Jams, being owned by a famous chef we had high expectations. Unfortunately the experience was extremely let down by poor communication between the staff. We ordered a starter as well as a main each and sides. All went well until the mains came out (steaks) and no sides. Upon querying this after 5 minutes, we were told they were coming and I observed the waiter speaking to the chef. Our waiter then came back and said they had run out of asparagus, and asked what we would like to substitute with. That would’ve been fine if that was communicated just after the order was made, however it wasn’t. To add, the potatoes ordered weren’t even ready which I believe means the order wasn’t put in in the first place. Eventually our 2 sides arrived, however by that time the steak was luke warm and the meal somewhat ruined. It’s a shame because everything was cooked well, the food was of a really good standard. Not one to complain, I let it go and wondered what may happen to the bill. I was never offered anything, not the sides complimentary nor a dessert or round of drinks on the house. I substantially decreased my tip, wrote a little note on the receipt and will be sure not to visit next time I’m in NYC.
We chose Jams because my son & daughter-in-law had stayed at the One Hotel at Central Park and we so enjoyed the Sunday Brunch. Food was excellent and the brunch cocktails were incredible! Cannot wait to go back again.
Everything was perfect! Enjoyed the Maine crab appetizer, and for dinner we had the Heirloom Pork Loin, and Tuna Poke - the flavors were excellent! Server was incredible, she was there when needed and quietly in the background otherwise. Drinks: had the strawberry martini drink (can’t remember the name) so good!
Food was not memorable.
Remarkable service, great attention to detail, and the food was outstanding. Definitely recommend.
The food was ordinary. The service was forgetful. The noise was unpleasant. The prices were high.
Second time I've eaten here. Great service. Location perfect. Food very good but a little over the top pricey.
I've been wanting to eat here for two years and I finally had an opportunity. It did not disappoint. Stunning atmosphere and solid menu that is fresh and light. Great staff as well that were very helpful!
We had a wonderful dining experience at Jams. Great service, great food, and wonderful staff. Will definitely dine here again.
Love the menu and love the concept. Unfortunately, our chicken wasn’t cooked all the way and I think the waitress kind of forgot about us and served us our appetizers and dinner at the same time and she didn’t have time to come ask us how everything was or fix our chicken because of course we had tickets to the theater. I will return, I think your food concept is excellent. Just need to train servers about attention to detail! JAM ON!!
Good trendy place ! Tasty fresh Bellini ! Definitely come back there soon !
Jams has a good vibe and very good, sincere service. Oysters were briny and tasty but tiny. Pork loin was perfectly cooked and flavorful but had a bit of tough membrane; accompanying spicy cooked greens were delicious. Gnocchi with veggies also wonderful. Comped tokai due to imperfect pork loin was much appreciated. Jams had its flaws, but they try to make things right and learn from the ones pointed out. That's a very good sign.
Loved our meal at Jams. Kale salad, carrots and pork loin were all excellent!
