Really appreciated the extra spacing between tables and that Staff were wearing masks. The food was fantastic and the cocktails were tasty! Our waiter was terrific as well.
I eat at JCT every time I come to Atlanta. The food is always good!! I bring new people with me and they enjoy it too and are hooked!
We were in Atlanta for one night at the end of a business trip. A local friend recommended JCT Kitchen and it turned out to be exactly what we were looking for. An nice modern take on southern comfort food in a fun atmosphere. The angry mussels, fried chicken and shrimp, okra & grits were perfect. Great attentive and friendly service. We'll definitely come back the next time we're in Atlanta to explore the rest of the menu.
It was the perfect place for a first date. Good energy and good food. The patio seating provided a wonderful ambiance. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.
Food and service was awesome. Staff should pay more attention to special requests accommodations, but is understandable considering the pandemic.
Amazing food and service. The patio was very spacious and had heaters for the chilly evening.
I sent a note on Facebook messenger and also through the contact form on the website. I came in Wednesday with my date for 8:00 reservationand sat at the table for 25 minutes without even somebody coming by to greet us or at least provide a glass of water. We got up and left. To say that I'm disappointed is an understatement.
The atmosphere outside was to die for. The scallops were pure perfection. I will be back very soon.
They aren’t “vegetable oriented” weird chairs outside. Drinks are good but expensive.
Great service and food.
We went to JCT for my husbands birthday and had an excellent dinner out with great service and fabulous mixed drinks. My recommendations: angry mussels, monkfish entree, the double old fashioned!
Brought friends to celebrate a birthday and had been raving about the last visit. This was just off. Not a busy night but the timing for food was really off. One of our guests was excited to have the mussels. Sadly they were served very cool. And his crab gnocchi was similarly off temperature. Was unfortunate that he ended having to send back to request warmer version and we all didn’t get to enjoy meals together. Manager acknowledged they were working to get the meal right but never really acknowledged that it messed up our evening.
. A disappointment from other visits here.
Fun birthday brunch!
Great place to share several delicious dishes! Fantastic cocktails as well!
Had a great experience for dinner on Saturday night! It was pouring outside, but the outdoor seating was covered well and we had no issues at our table. Donnie, our waiter, was also so nice and helpful!
so so good!! truffle fries & mac n cheese are a must!
Amazing food and cocktails!
The food wasn’t the best I had there, but the service and drinks were fantastic!
The food at JCT is always delicious and consistent. Our server was fantastic. All staff wore masks and guests were allowed to remove masks at their tables, but were required to wear masks when moving about the restaurant. They had hand sanitizer available, too.
Amazing experience, can't wait to go back and order the fried chicken again. 2 people shared the fried chicken plate and added a side of Mac and cheese and a side of braised greens. We couldn't finish all of the food. Everything was spectacular.
This is my favorite spot in Atlanta. Always great food and the best fried chicken in a town of lots of good fried chicken.
The angry mussels are the best dish in ATL. Food is amazing
The scallops were amazing!! Great vibe. Our first time, will definitely be back.
This was my first COVID restaurant experience and it was great. Our table felt isolated from other diners and service was just as expected - exceptional service, amazing cocktails, and food we all know and love from JCT. I love that there were even small bags of lemon heads waiting as we exited.
My waitress Winnie was amazing. Professional, fast and charming. Food was wonderful.
Beautiful meal. Sat outside and weather was great. Service was wonderful.
Donny our waiter was amazing!
It was nice. I would have liked to see more dinner options on the menu. But other then that the food was good. I ordered the mahi mahi and it was nice and tender. Not fishy at all. My husband had the fried chicken and he enjoyed it. Our drinks were good. Overall a good experience. And our server was really nice and patient.
The atmosphere and location are cool, cool, cool. Loved that. The food - not so much. I think this is one of the most overrated restaurants in ATL. It reminds me of the emperor's new clothes - everyone thinks this is an "it" place, so they rank it really high, because they think they must be too unsophisticated to appreciate the food. Limited menu to begin with. Ordered octopus for appetizer, that was pretty good. Redfish and Mahi Mahi for entrees, both were exceedingly bland. There are hundreds of better restaurants in ATL, and with better prices.
My first time experiencing JCT Kitchen and it did not disappoint! The food was amazing and the ambiance was absolutely beautiful. First up we ordered the DEVILED EGGS, with country ham & evoo which was scrumptious. Then I ordered the DUCK & DUMPLINGS with gnocchetti, field peas and brown butter ju as our server recommended and it was deeelicious!!!! My friend ordered the fried chicken and it was also great! The MACARONI & CHEESE with patak bacon was AMAZING!!! Needless to say I walked away Fat & Happy! I will return again.
Upon arriving for the reservations I made over a month ago for my husband’s 50th birthday, I was told that they didn’t have reservations for us. Then I was told that the reservations were for the next day even though the app clearly stated the correct date AND I had personally confirmed the reservations directly with the restaurant. They were able to find us a table, but it took over 20 minutes. There was no apology or compensation, even in provide us better service. One of our guests never even got her meal.
I’ve heard great things about this restaurant and was looking forward to dining there, but WOW! In the 10+ years I’ve been using Open Table, I’ve never had such a bad experience. And that night of all nights! What a disaster.
We were SUPER late for our second stop. So much so, that several friends had to bail. I worked so hard to give my husband the best socially-distanced-pandemic-milestone-birthday possible,but with one fell swoop, JCT Kitchen botched the whole thing. An apology or even the slightest hint of empathy would have been nice. What we got was a partially delivered meal and an obliterated after-party.
Great experience eating outside...food, service and safety were all excellent
Great experience! Octopus was tender, Truffle parmesan fries were amazing, Grits were spot on. Chicken and dumplings also delicious. Tokaji was a nice way to end the meal! I will definitely come back again next time I'm in Atlanta. Server also did a great job!
The service and food are both incredible. I felt welcomed and spoiled during the whole meal! I can’t say enough great things about my experience!
Morgan was great and knows the menu well. She was able to make some great suggestions.
Great experience and delicious food as usual at JCT!
Very accommodating and attentive service. Fantastic atmosphere. Great outdoor dining experience!
Great outdoor seating and ambiance. JCT always nails the menu from starters to dessert. We will be back!
One of our “go to” places in atlanta. Always a fantastic food and service experience. Patio is perfect for outside dining during covid!
Great food and service. Drinks were awesome. We got the First Rodeo with mezcal and You’re welcome with bourbon. Can’t sing enough praise to each. Flavorful, balanced and great showing for each spirit.
