The service was great. By mistake, a waitress knocked over a glass of wine on our table. The manager took care of our appetizer, first round of drinks, and offered dry cleaning services. Not to mention the food was delicious.

We always love Jam’s, is truly one of our favorites. The music was VERY loud this time though, which made all the guests turn up their conversations really loud. But other than that we enjoyed dinner here.

Great Brunch menu! We were in a hurry to get to musical at Orpheum and told waitress we were in a hurry. Man the food came out fast and was great. We really appreciate their concern for our situation.

Quickly seated our party of 6 at a table large enough for everyone. Service was superb. Variety of foods available but all we tasted were fantastic. Jalapeño Lobster Bisque was phenomenal. Braised short rib tacos served with side of Mac n cheese were tender and perfectly paired. Salads were fresh and excellent tasting. Highly recommend Jams.

Best bruschetta I've ever had. First restaurant we've been to in a very long time where myself and both my kids loved everything. We finally found a new favorite restaurant we can agree on.

We love Jams but this experience was not a good one. We witnessed management snapping at the wait staff, which is uncomfortable and unprofessional. The food was lacking in flavor and the service was slow. Jams is a great restaurant but this experience was disappointing.

I was taking my teenage daughters to a play at the Orpheum and decided to have dinner at Jams before the show. There wasn’t anything that wow’ed us at dinner. It was fine. Nothing to complain about. Food was ok. One of the girls mentioned that the place seemed too nice (ambience) for the basic burgers and sandwiches on the menu.

Food and service was just ok. Nothing remarkable. You could always count on the original location to be great - not so much at the downtown spot.

Went here for brunch - definitely exceeded our expectations. The brunch menu items were outstanding. We enjoyed the Jams omelet (short rib and veggies), the crab cake benedict, and the shrimp and grits. Our server was outstanding. The space has a nice warehouse/old market vibe. Had a great experience - we'll be back for sure.

We were very disappointed. We had been here several times before, and we have never had a problem. I made reservations in advance, and we were made to sit at a high top table instead of a booth due to the fact that there were only two of us. We have never run into this before. During the stay, there were plenty of open booths. The food was also extremely greasy. We told the waitress about this. No apology or any offering was made to us. I will not be returning due to this visit.

I came here with friends on an early Saturday evening. The food was outstanding as was the service. Our server came right over when we sat down and was friendly and attentive. The food was delicious, I had the lobster tacos and they were wonderful. I recommend highly!!

The service lacked much. She rarely visited our table, was in a rush when she did and messed up a simple order of nachos with corn chips (I'm gluten intolerant.) My husband ordered his sandwich with no tomatoes and the menu description said nothing about sauteed onions and arugala and it came with all the toppings. No apologies for the mistakes and full charge for the meal. The food didn't even taste that good either for the price. Don't waste your time. Go somewhere else.

This restaurant came highly recommended. We were travelling and based on that recommendation I made a reservation. Service was awful. Our server was very attentive to the tables on both sides of us. We had to ask her what the specials were as well as what soups were available. She offered that info to the other tables. She did not stop by after the food was delivered to see if we had everything we needed. I spent $69.07 for two on a very disappointing meal and experience. Won't be back again.

Two of our three meals were outstanding (Chicken Parm Sandwich and open face Turkey sandwich). I had the Coconut Chicken Salad. The chicken was overcooked, hard to cut, and not very tasty. And there was WAY too much salad dressing.

But to put it in perspective, this is the first "meh" meal I've had a JAMS. We'll definitely go again - but will not order the Coconut Chicken Salad.

We had an amazing experience, had a great server that was very attentive to the fact that we had 3 small children, and served them first on everything so our food didn't get cold and that they were quiet. The food was excellent, a staple of Omaha.
