The only negative we experienced was when we learned that Jillian’s was closing for the summer. We just moved to the area a few months ago and had our first visit to Jillian’s this week for my wife’s birthday. Atmosphere, service and food is the best in the desert.

There were no fans or cooling measures for outdoor dining which made it unpleasant to sit outside

Love this place for the quality of food, service and ambiance. The valet has top notch service too! They brought out our car before we even walked down the stairs. That happened last time I came too (about two years ago).

Don't recommend table for two in the "glide path" to the kitchen--way to much server traffic back and forth.

Food and service were impeccable. Lobster salad was divine as well as the Cannelloni and Halibut special with crabmeat/pistachio crust. Carolina , our server, was awesome and very attentive . The setting is beautiful even on a chilly evening.

The crab tower and special lobster salad were very good and flavorful. The chicken champignon was very tasty but rubbery. The rack of lamb was chewy and rather bland which was surprising given the preparation. Also the Demi glacé was not properly prepared. The chocolate cake was very good as was the service.

Great place for that special dinner. Great owners, great staff and great food. But I do have to mention that this time around, my dinner (Osso Buco) was served luke ward. Didn't make an issue because I didn't want spoil a great evening. Food needs to served hot

I was very disappointed that I had requested outdoor dining and received a table looking at the bathrooms with a roof over my head! I was told it was outside dining when asked.
Warm bread arrived at our table before we even had a cocktail--weird and inappropriate.
The presentation of both our meals was haphazard and not gourmet. I ordered a wonderful veal chop with sauce--but how would you know the sauce was all muddled in with the side of ratatouille which was the "side" vegetable. Such a bizarre combination. It was supposed to come with scalloped potatoes, but never got those!
The person with me received the wrong order, recieved a duplicate of mine even though she ordered scallops. So while my food sat at our table they had to go make scallops. Everything was disappointing for $300.00 and I will not go back! This is my first time since Covid-19 and my 3rd time to Jillians. This was by far the worst experience. I wonder if making the reservation with Open Table is a bad choice and puts us at the bottom of the barrel.

We love Jillian's. We visit several times a year for special occasions and never are disappointed. The ambiance is wonderful. the outside courtyards are spectacular and so beautiful. The food is some of the best in the desert. The service is consistently excellent and the servers are friendly and engaged at all times. Don't miss it.

My friends and I felt badly supporting a restaurant that is not honouring the rules as we don’t think it is fare to the restaurants that are.
That aside, Gillians is one of our favourites and you honour social distancing.
Thank you, Barb👍😀

Beautiful outside open area dining space. Broad menu selections and attentive service. What more could you ask for during these stark times. We will return to support them.
