JCT has changed their menu again, keeping some staples and adding some freshness. The food was very very tasty but the overall experience was a little lacking. Our reservation ran a bit late and service, while friendly, was incredibly low! Huge wait time between appetizers and entrees and unacceptably long wait for our check. It was also stiflingly hot in the restaurant.

We love JCT Kitchen. It is consistently wonderful with a menu that has southern influences with fresh food and imaginative dishes. The deviled eggs are a MUST. The hanger steak, the fish sandwich, salads are all wonderful. They have a terrific wine list as well. My only complaint is that we waited 10 minutes or more for our glasses of wine. It was a very busy Saturday lunch so that was likely the cause.

Overall, the experience was good! We love JCT but the food was not as great as it usually is! We ordered a ton of food. The friend chicken was not very well seasoned, and quite honestly tasted bland! We had out of town guests and they were not impressed.

Awful. Ordered a martini and not in a martini glass. What’s up with that. Martini was stuffed with blue cheese and still had a seed. Almost choked on it.

I have had better chicken from Publix or drive through at KFC. $300 dinner and it was awful.

I won’t ever go back or recommend it. Save your money and got to KFC!!!

I loved our waitress. She was outstanding. The restaurant itself is appealing, I like the feel of it. The ladies bathroom, however, needs renovating. It wasn't inviting at all. And, it wasn't clean. The food was not as good as I anticipated, so I was a little disappointed at that. The biscuits and the honney butter are to die for!!! Definitely the best part of the meal. I did enjoy the family style dinner for Sunday's. I might give JCT another try during the week, as was suggested by a patron the night we were there. I think it's unique that lemonheads are offered instead of those boring mints.

Too much food from their Sunday dinner 3 course menu, for a Brit Like me. Could have stopped at the 1st course, salad, biscuits and delivered eggs. Had to take the rest of the food home, quiet tasty though

Absolutely love JCT! Their Sunday supper is superb and and unbeatable deal for incredible, high quality locally sourced farm to table food. They are also super accommodating to all dietary restrictions. We were a party of 12 with one vegetarian, one vegan, and one person who is vegan plus gluten free.

The food is overpriced for what you get. One or two of the dishes were great (brussel sprouts and bacon mac & cheese), but everything else was over seasoned and disappointing. We ended up paying over $40 per person (including drinks, to be fair) for below average food.

Victor, our waiter was fabulous, so he receives five stars from me. The yeast rolls were awesome, but I expected more with the food. Since the restaurant received a high rating of 4.8 out of 5.0, I thought the food and experience would align.
Since I have been in Atlanta, no place has met my expectations, and the prices are above the experience. You can not charge $42 for a tough unseasoned steak.
Every place we go, we are over dressed and feel out of place. It makes me think Atlanta does not know customer service or quality. I just want good customer service, quality food, fun, and a place to dance after I have worked super hard all.
I am willing to pay the price for the experience.
