The BEST restaurant in the desert! Consistently the best food, service, atmosphere!
Can’t wait to go back!
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).
Excellent experience. Staff was very attentive, food superb. The decor and ambiance was nice and inviting. Will definitely come here again and recommend to friends.
We always enjoy our time at Jillian’s. Such a beautiful spot and the food and wait staff are so wonderful.
John was a very good waiter. He was extremely helpful with the specials and also the house favorites. We always enjoy our meal there and have recommended to friends. We also just told our weekend guest about it. She will be booking soon.
Great place overall, can't wait to go back.
Beautiful setting, amazing food and spectacular service.
Excellent cuisine from the gazpacho to the pan seared halibut. Lovely ambiance. Highly recommend!
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.
always our favorite place to visit !!!!!we love the whole experience
Outdoor patio was wonderful. Great service. Food was good. Not great. Drinks were very expensive.
Has to be the best outdoor setting in all of the desert! Great food and wonderful service made for a really special 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.
A wonderful meal as always!
My husband and I celebrated our35th anniversary at Jillian’s at the suggestion of a friend. A perfect choice! The staff were delightful, food impeccable, and the atmosphere romantic. Thank you to everyone at Jillians for the lovely evening!
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
Always a great time and the food incredible. Enjoyed it!!!!
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.
Wonderful meal.Did a fantastic job keeping us warm and cozy considering the night was very cold outside while dining.
Great food, wine, service, and ambiance.
What more is there to say!
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.
Excellent ambience and great food and service. A place you must visit
Jillians is always a wonderful treat to enjoy.....the food is great and the service as well. A real favorite of mine
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👍😀
Brave restaurant operators continue to serve in the open air setting.
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.
Jillian's is always a wonderful dining experience - even more so during these trying times. The staff at Jillian's has created a magical outdoor experience that is welcoming, warm and safe. The food is always delicious - I live for those Nantucket scallops! And you cannot beat the service.
Very classy place always a pleasure to dine here.
Everything is wonderful about Jillians - it's a must go to place
What a fabulous restaurant and ambiance! We went there twice! The Canneloni Della casa was delicious! We treasured our time - Jay and June, the owners came by our table and others to personally greet and visit with each guest. Wonderful - we will return! Thank you!
Had a beautiful meal and the rack of Lamb was outstanding.
Simply the best! Kudos to owners who defied GOV GAV’s dictatorial edict for latest 4-wk lockdown and remained opened! Well be back soon for a week’s fine dining at this superb establishment!
Always spectacular! Service and food was just the best.
Everything was so wonderful - the atmosphere so romantic and such a interesting menu - with many wonderful choices. The service was attentive - but not overpowering. great place to eat
Fabulous food and atmosphere - thank you Jillian’s for providing an enjoyable experience during this difficult time.
Best restaurant in the desert
Service is impeccable and food sublime.
My wife and I dined at Gillians recently to celebrate her birthday. As expected, eating their delicious food, enjoying their fine service and the beautiful surroundings always makes it a special treat. We cannot recommend this restaurant enough. GP
Wonderful evening that gave an amazing experience in trying times!
