Well, we have been going to Jason’s for years. This is the first time we have been disappointed. The Cajun pasta tasted like it came from a can. The sausage slices were dry and not appealing. My wife always orders sea bass and it was the smallest piece ever (granted it was the last piece available) and slightly overcooked. The rice was dry. Not sure what is going on but we are now reticent. Will go back for appetizers only as the dragon prawns were as good as ever as were the string beans.

Prices are expensive. We visit often and struggle with the menu. Wish they would change/update the menu. Our server, Ever, was rude and condescending. In the future we wont accept him as our server. He has waited on us before and it was same thing.

A favorite of ours. And felt super safe there during COVID -- they have made very thoughtful accommodations. Food, staff we know from Jasons and from Farm House Local, service, Andrew who we have known for years, the owner -- and the amazing hospitality make this like eating at a friend's house who is the ultimate chef and host. I love the Sea Bass and my husband loves their steaks -- and the Ahi appetizer. ENJOY!

With Covid it is expected to be a little off.
The door to the patio was open and it made the dining room chilly.

Service was great, food was good as always.
Was hoping for one of the original Salmon dishes from Jason.

Great food. Eating outside so a little chilly. There are ceiling heaters but they don’t spread heat to sides of “tent” so if you are seated next to opening like I was there is a chilly breeze coming through.

Dinner was great — shrimp scampi, sea bass and a pasta dish. It was our three birthdays and they brought out a large piece of tiramisu cake with a candle gratis for omission to share. The crime brûlée we ordered was weird: it was very firm and very yellow, not a light, creamy custard which you would expect.

The food was good and service good. Cider was amazing, but portions too small. Manager ( not sure if that was his role) was fist bumping customers amid COVID which seemed irresponsible and provides bad optics.

A close friend, who is like a mom to me, took me to Jasons for mybday dinner. The restaurant brought out a little birthday desert (on the house).

My friend's birthday is shortly after mine. She wanted to go to the same restaurant. In preparation for my friend's birthday, I told the restaurant 3 times it was a big birthday that we were celebrating and they said we would be taken care of, and to our disappointment, nothing happened after dinner.

Also, after we were served dinner, the waiter's attitude and demeanor changed and he was less attentive and receptive. The food was fairly good. The service for the first half of dinner was excellent. The wait staff are always incredible.

I tipped 20% even though I felt it was more than was deserved, but the wait staff were so respectful, so I wanted to acknowledge their work.

I will not be going back for any birthdays or special occasions based on my experience. I will still go if I am in the mood for their soup. I also would not recommend friends going for special occasions. Still love the restaurant but this experience was not to my satisfaction and will affect my decision to return in the future.

My wife and I have been customers at Jason's since the restaurant's inception and have always found the locale, the parking, the staff, and the ambiance, not to mention the food--exceptional. To our chagrin, Saturday night October 31 was an exception to the ambiance component; a live band was on board with a singer belting out song after song (polite term-she actually was screaming the lyrics) at a decibel level so high, my wife and I had difficulty conversing, even though we were seated at the far corner of he dining area. Next time we will check with the maitre'd about a live band before we visit. If live music is obligatory, how about some nice guitar selections or favorite songs by Edit Piaf?

Food was ok, sitting outside on the patio was nice, the music (it was Halloween) was a rock band that was very loud. Didn't make for a great evening.

Halloween was spectacular! Kool Whip was amazing and as usual so was the service, food, and drink. Please keep the extra outdoor dinning and music going for as long as you can. I realize that it's hard to book and advertise when you're not sure of the weather, but some of the bands you've had were small and probably not to hard to cancel on when needed. When there is music happening I'm able to get friends excited enough to join me. I've consistently had 4 to 8 friends join me on nights when the music is happening. Thank you for all of your efforts.

Most of the food was well done...we thought the marguerita pizza had a good amount of sauce, basil, and tomatoes on it. Clam chowder was flavorful but the portion was very small for the price. The main issue was the espresso creme brûlée, which was purposely served cold and we both felt it took away from the dessert by not warming it...texture was off and being cold just made it taste very average. Also Cappuccino was not even warm.

On the plus side the outdoor patio is huge and has great ambience, and live jazz band was fantastic!

We had a party of six. We all thought the food and drink were excellent! I can't remember our waiter's name, but he was tall, with short blonde hair and glasses. He was fabulous, at tentative, but not annoying., and very funny. Ilona, the hostess, was warm and gracious and stopped by every once in a while to make sure we were happy. We Were! Tiffany was overseeing things in a very professional manner, as she always does, and we loved her costume! The band was Kool Whip and they were amazing. We danced half the night away. Please keep the live music as long as you can. Thank you for everything.
