Don't spend your hard-earned money here! Great selection of small plate appetizers, which were quite delicious - that was where the good experience ended. We waited a full hour and a half after our appetizers before being served our main course. The waiter kept apologizing that they were very busy and unable to keep up with a full seating. But this was Saturday night and they weren't planning on a full seating??? I can just imagine the cheap management... There was no offer of bread or anything from the kitchen to hold us over. He lied and told me he would "take care of us on the bill" - I received a full bill with no compensation at the end. I ordered a main course of "Colorado" lamb. My lamb was tough to chew and not the amazing flavor of Colorado lamb - this tasted much more like extremely ordinary lamb from the supermarket. They must think their customers are stupid! We ordered Chocolate "Mousse" for dessert - this was lukewarm chocolate with a broken candy bar in it - it had not nearly set into a mousse and was fairly disgusting. That dessert ruined whatever was good in the meal. My whole meal was so bad, I just gave up and chose to pay their damn bill, leave and never come back. Never. Nor should you.
Great food and excellent service.
Had an excellent meal and time for Valentine’s Day. Very happy with our experience.
Great place for Valentine’s Day dinner with someone special. Food is excellent and the service is perfect.
I have eaten at many places in Ft Collins and Jays is by far my favorite!
Very disappointed in bouillabaisse. Tasteless, very little seafood. Won’t order again. Not worth $35..... we usually love the food here. Service and ambience were great.
We went to Jay's Bistro last year for valentine dinner and was very pleased with the food and service, went there this year hoping it would be the same. We was given the valentine menu and did not get to see the reguler menu but noticed the other patrons did. So we ordered off the menu that was gave to us. The food was slow to be served and we were very unhappy with the food we ordered. Wish we would have had a chance to order off the regular menu. Asked the waiter and he said "O" I forgot. Very unhappy and will not return.
Have loved Jay's for years now and bartender Melissa is amazing! The only thing missing are vegan options on the menu but they are willing to make adjustments to the regular menu. Atmosphere is cozy and Jay's is a true gem in Fort Collins. Highly recommend and we keep going back!
We have been going to Jay's for special occasions for years. However, this one didn't quite top the list as the best experience. I made our reservations on-line and there wasn't an opportunity on Open Table to say this was a special occasion (it was our wedding anniversary on the 7th). And unlike Jay's in the past, no one asked as we were being seated by the hostess or by our server. The seafood chowder was excellent, but barely lukewarm (I didn't want to ruin our evening by sending it back). The wine by the glass that I ordered wasn't available, so I was offered a 2nd choice, which was excellent. My ahi special of the day was lukewarm as well, but excellent in taste. Again, I did not tell anyone. The scotch that my husband ordered as an after dinner drink was not available, so he had to chose another one. 'Things' like this typically do not happen at Jay's. Our dinner was on a Wednesday night, so maybe things were re-stocked yet.
Wonderful food and atmosphere.
Reliably good food, service and drinks. Pleasant live music, usually piano w bass, etc.
The food is way overpriced and unfortunately we didn't realize the menu had mostly seafood on it. We also didn't realize there was a separate bar area where we could have gotten tapas. This place is not suitable for those who are Paleo. My husband liked the Bison dish he had but, my salad was drenched in dressing and I couldn't eat it. We specifically went there for the french fries fried in duck fat, which the waitress told us it was only available to order in the bar. We asked her if we could order it anyways and they did allow us to do that. If you like seafood it may be a great place for you but I still think the prices are way too high.
Great spot. Consistently good food and service.
Only request I’d have for a change would be a more affordable Scotch selection. Famous Grouse would help the list of Scotch. Excellent flavor but quite affordable.
We used to love Jay’s Bistro, but our recent experience was not great. The food took a long time, and then it was not hot when we got it. Bummer. The quality has also gone down. For the price you pay the food should taste good and be hot. Next time we go out for a nice dinner we will select another place in town.
I've been going to Jays for thirty years. It is under different ownership for many years now but the quality has remained the same. Beautiful restaurant inside and out. One of the best jazz bars in town if that is what you are in the mood for and a very elegant restaurant with high quality food and wine selections. The service is exceptional too. We were short on time as we had a show to go to and they accommodated that well.
I took my boyfriend here for his birthday and we had a really good time. The food was fantastic, the wine and drinks were delicious, and the service was great. Dining here is on the expensive side but it's worth it. For a quiet date night or a special occasion this would be an awesome restaurant to try out , and on the weekend they have a live jazz band preforming in the evenings! Can't wait to go back
Great food, great customer service, and great atmosphere. Little bit on the pricey end but well worth the money
We had a special birthday dinner and thanks to Jays Bistro it was perfect! Food and drinks were superb! The service was exceptional! Couldn’t have had a more pleasant experience! Thanks, Jays!
We have enjoyed Jay’s numerous times;always great food and attentive service. We highly recommend it.
Our server was excellent, my lobster bisque was fantastic, my son's lamb was great!
