As always love Jason's, but this time even though we had an early reservation and it was
quiet for the first 45 minutes, it became extremely noisy and hard to hold a conversation at
our table. Business is good and I am happy to see it, but would like some kind of noise
reducer-----Our servers were attentive and not obtrusive, willing to make substitutions. The bus boy was a little eager to take plates before all at the table had finished. Food selection was excellent. Really like the lobster bisque soup. thank you.
Jason's is always wonderful. On this occasion, we encountered an argumentative waiter, however, everything else was great. We keep coming back to Jason's because it's one of the best restaurants in Marin.
Consistently delicious food. Never had a piece of over cooked or under cooked fish and the pastas and salads are spot on. Jason is really a wonderful chef. Very friendly polite staff are there for your every wish. I love this place!
Our waiter was not friendly, a bit rude to us and didn’t engage whatsoever. We also had mentioned that we didn’t like a soup (only eaten a bit) and he didn’t have the courtesy to remove from bill. Overall , the food was good but service last night was awful.
Good portions and delicious food. We had the lamb, fettucini, and cajun tuna and everyone was pleased. The mashed potatoes are plentiful and tasty.
Waiter brought wrong dish, and correct dish came shortly after and we were comp'd a cocktail.
Service is spot on, water glasses always full and pleasant staff.
Celebrated a Birthday Dinner with 8 people, had a delicious meal and great service. Jason the Owner came out and greeted our table and made sure everything was up to his and our picky standards. Finished the evening at the bar and equally had the same great experience. Definitely will be back!
A friend had recommended Jason’s to us and we finally went last Saturday night for a date night dinner. We were quickly seated and our server came quickly and brought water and bread and took our beverage order. Our drinks came quickly. I asked about the miso marinated Chilean sea bass and our server said if I ordered it I would continue coming back. I started with the hamachi shooters and both were EXCELLENT. The miso marinated sea bass was as good if not better than miso yaki butterfish served in Hawaii. My wife ordered the Gorgonzola and pear salad and a delicious pizza.
We shared the chocolate sundae for dessert and we left very full and very satisfied
Favorite Marin Restaurant. Sea Bass is as good as it gets.
We had heard that this place was very good, and my husband had been here several years before, so we took our family out to celebrate two birthdays. We did not have any wine. We had three appetizers: the shots, the poke, and seared scallops. The shots and scallops were very good. I have had better poke. I thought the scallops appetizer was very skimpy. At $15 per appetizer, I did not feel good about our selections. Entrees were just okay. My mother-in-law was disappointed in the lamb. My burger was not very well seasoned. Two of our younger children had chicken strips, which were way over-salted/seasoned. The wait staff was attentive, but our server lacked personality - this can go either way for some groups. Our group likes to joke around, so we noticed the lack of humor/sense of fun. We all had desserts - no complaints there. Overall, we probably would not return. There are too many other options in Marin.
My husband had the nightly special of pasta with fresh crab, and it was so heavily garlicked that he was unable to eat it, and changed plates with our daughter who said the same, but ate it.
My crab cakes were just OK. Crab Louie was fine. Kitchen was nice and split our salad for us, which we appreciated.
The waiters are pretty charmless, and don't add anything to the pleasure of an evening out. They have not been trained to leave finished dishes until everyone at the table has finished which should be a must for this level of restaurant.
Not encouraged to go back again.
My favorite restaurant in Marin!
Good food and value with convenient access to the freeway and plenty of parking.
I would recommend the Tiger Prawns and Chilean sea bass. The owner (Jason) is friendly and welcoming.
The food won't open any culinary vistas, but is tasty and some things are quite creative.
Highly recommend the scampi and the Brandy chicken. Quite pleasant sitting outside. Very quiet and relaxing. No rushing to get us out.
Delicious Prawn Scampi and fab Hot Fudge Sundae 😀
Jasons's never fails to provide a top notch dining experience! It is one of a very few restaurants in Marin that is consistent in the quality of its food and servers. It is a favorite among my group of friends. Thank you, Jason, for your many years of excellence :-)!
Great service and excellent food all around. The 1/2 off on wine over $40 was a plus.
Food was excellent and service was extraordinary. Our waiter noticed that we were all wearing black . He replaced the 3 white napkins with 3 black ones so we wouldn't get lint on our clothing. His care, attentiveness and delightful personality added to the lovely evening.
I have always enjoyed Jason's and highly recommend it. Reservations are needed if you want to make sure you get a table.
although we had reservations they put us in the middle of a very noisy group of people. However they brought a lovely desert for our friend who had a birthday.
The place has a fun upbeat atmosphere, it was Happy Hour, so good values were at hand. However, ordered the rib-eye. What I got was something of a variation of a rib eye. Soon as I put the big knife to it an felt resistance I knew something was amiss. I should have stopped there but I went on hoping it would get better. Had a few descent bites but overall a very chewy
experiment. Did not send back, should have.
The menu even named the farm so had high expectations. Maybe that was the problem.
Waiter said they were not a " steak house ." Oops .
The ladies had salmon and loved it.
Jason's is one of the best of Marin to me, food - service - clean. Good for any occasion, best for adults and not young children. One of my favorite.
Our meal was really tasty - especially liked the "healthy green beans" appetizer. Our server was helpful, friendly and available. The downside of evening was the very loud noise level! We had chosen Jason's in hopes that we would be able to have conversation -- that was not possible. Don't know if it was an unusual night but it was LOUD! Not a place to go if you want to be able to hear and be heard.
The food is very good, a creative menu with specials every day. But the service is exceptional especially waiters Ever and Angel !
Ordered Gorgonzola Pear Salad with grilled chicken on it. Have had before - however, this time the chicken was grizzly and undercooked and very sparce with the gorgonzola and pears.
Waiter totally disinterested - walked away before we would finish asking questions. Very disappointed. The service seems to be going down and now I hope the food isn't going down on a regular basis.
The food is always good but we had an odd experience when paying the bill. We had brought our own wine and we were not charged for corkage (initially). Needless to say we left a generous tip. We were getting ready to leave and our waiter came over and said he did not charge us for corkage and presented us with another bill for the difference. We then paid more money and left. He came outside saying we only left him a $4 tip because he took the other $40 tip money and applied it to the corkage. We were taken aback with this situation....
We dine here often so assumed the no corkage was a courtesy (as many restaurants often do this periodically).
Absolutely love this restaurant. Great ambience. We did love our waiter, but I have forgotten his name.
We love Jason's and especially since they re-decorated....great food...great service and happy to go and enjoy being there...
Our waiter was very nice. I love crab & ordered the crab cakes. They were almost inedible - tasted like vinegar & so crammed with red hot chilis it was impossible to know one was eating crab. There were 3 of us. One of us ordered a pizza & asked if they had crisp crusts & she wanted it extra crispy. It came & was as limp as a dish rag. The third person ordered one of the specials & that was quite good. I wouldn't attend the restaurant again.
I am a retired doctor and I meet an old colleague for lunch every 6 weeks or so. The food is always good, reasonably priced, with excellent no nonsense service. It is not too loud and it is a pleasant place for a relaxed lunch. This is an uncomplicated and good place to eat.
Enjoyed every bite. Waiter was good, noise level perfect, temperature perfect. All around it was a great lunch!!
