Service was good but the food really not up to par. Inconsistent at best our last few visits.

First time here. We came on a recommendation from a local. JCT did not disappoint. The food and service were both amazing! We had one person in the group request a Vegetarian dish - whatever the chef recommended. The Vegetarian dish was creative and delicious. Everyone else in the group was pleased with their entrees and they recommend the JCT fried chicken!!

We had an early reservation and it was still quite noisy. Our server, Steven - I think, was so determined to do a great job. He might be new (?) but he was very professional and tried his best to answer our many questions. I might have missed it, but it would help if the menu indicated which dishes were vegetarian or could be made vegetarian.

Celebrated our 14th anniversary at my wife’s favorite restaurant. Food was solid as always, but this version of the menu wasn’t the most appealing. The schnitzel was AMAZING, and the chicken was great as always. Appetizers were what was lacking this time…just not great options. Drinks were perfection. The two big misses were (a) there was a party of six in the corner and one of the ladies in the party was consistently obnoxiously loud and (b) I had indicated in the reservation that it was my anniversary and didn’t get an acknowledgement. But we’ll definitely be back!

P.S. parking valet were REALLY confused when we arrived. Was a slightly awkward experience because they couldn’t figure out their system, didn’t know if they had spots, then decided the would park my car but give me my keys, and then finally decided that they would park my car and hold my keys…all within a 90 second span. 🤷🏽‍♂️

Really cool place, we ate outside on the patio. The service was amazing and the food was really delicious, they were a little stingy with the duck, way too much fries and too little duck.

It has been awhile since we have been to JCT and not having some of their classics and changes to the mussels was disappointing. The food is still good, but really want their fried chicken salad and the mussels in the broth they used to have was a downer.

Great food as always and service was very attentive. The noise level was really energetic!! So loud that by the end of the night I was losing my voice as I was having to speak so loudly so my friend could hear me. I hope this can be managed better as I love JCT!

We have always loved JCT Kitchen but our recent visit was disappointing. The noise level was so high that we could not even converse at a two top. Twice our waitress did not bring or do what we asked for because she simply could not hear what we were saying. (Otherwise, she was very good.) The food was good but the menu needs a few more options. We are not picky eaters and eat a wide variety of things, but neither one of us could find anything on the menu to get excited about. We both ended up getting the shrimp and grits. It was flavorful but nothing special.

Loved the out door seating. Lucy is a great server. Everyone was very friendly. Only issue is that outside there’s music from at least two different restaurants and gets a little bit confusing/noisy but still didn’t take away from our great night.

We enjoyed our visit. Atmosphere was good but loud. We sat in the outdoor area. Service was excellent. Although they are known for the fried chicken dish, it wasn't my favorite. I do recommend a little broader selection of wine by the glass. There was only 1 chardonnay by the glass.

We had a great experience here last night. The food was exceptional, ambiance was great, waiter was attentive and polite and we’ll definitely be back.

The valet parking, I know is not run by the restaurant, ran out of spots and we ended up having to park on the other side of the tracks. A bit inconvenient.

Our drinks from the bar were very slow. I’m sure we would have ordered at least one more each had they been quicker. Second drink arrived after our main course was nearly over. The staff did keep our water glasses filled throughout.

Again, we’ll come back!

It isn’t fair to compare pre-COVID and now but things have changed. The chef if different and is still serving up some JCT favorites (deviled eggs) and adding his own to the menu (marinated cucumbers).
We split appetizers and sides opting not to get main courses. The appetizer portions were generous but the menu is more limited. Our server, Demitri, was awesome!
