Loved everything about our experience. It would have been nice to be informed prior to the evening that it was a price fix menu and what the price would be. We loved it nevertheless!

Food was great - but would have preferred to know it was a set menu with a set price. Was worth it, just surprised.

The service was great, both at the bar and at our table. The food was fine. I’m from out of town and read so many great reviews, so maybe there was too much hype for the food to live up to. I would come back and give them another try as their menus are interesting.

Grant was our bartender....very knowledgable and mixed very nice drinks. April was our server and she was very attentive while allowing us to have space. Service and atmosphere were excellent.

The food was unique but enough variety that I recognized many of the items. The food was fantastic and the service was great too.

We had a nice evening at John J Jeffries. Both our meals were prepared very well. Our waiter was fantastic. We weren’t in the main dining room, so atmosphere suffered a little. The pace was a little quick, so it didn’t feel like we had much time to sip our wine and enjoy the evening out.

We had an excellent meal. The steak tartar was very good.
