Salads are fantastic . Carrot cake and key lime pie both unbelievably good . Something bad happened to bread pudding (hard and chewy ) fish tuna and mahi mahi suberb

I've been to Jonah's before and it's been wonderful, but my most recent experience left me extremely disappointed. It was a Valentine's Day date, so we expected busy. What we didn't expect was for them to have an extremely limited entree menu, be out of the bottle of wine we ordered, and then be out of our first 3 choices from the already the limited menu. And they ran out of bread! How does an establishment with so much experience run out of bread at dinner time?
We ordered calamari for an appetizer, and it was marginal at best -- some soggy pieces, and completely without salt. Hubby ordered bronzed salmon, and it was good but not great. I had the grouper salinas, and it was not really even good. The sauce was extremely shrimpy, to the tune that I couldn't really even taste the flavor of the fish.
In the end, this experience may dissuade me from going back to Jonah's. Perhaps someday for a more casual dinner or lunch, but absolutely never again for a holiday such as Valentine's Day. My husband and I were both left wishing we'd just had salad and dessert. I'm just trying to get over the disappointment -- I had such high expectations, and was left wanting.

We went on Valentine's Day and it was our first time at Jonah's. They had a limited menu and they were out of Ono my first choice so I went with the Jambalaya which was pretty good. However my wife went with the Grouper and was very unimpressed. Overall it was dry and bland and most definitely overpriced in comparison to what I had ordered. Decent service for a busy afternoon but we were left unattended for extended periods of time on a few occasions. Overall it was okay but not what I expected for an upscale restaurant on Valentine's Day.

The food is always good , this time service was disappointing . Took to long to get waited on . They didn’t take our order until we was done with our oyster rockafeller . Everyone around us showed up after we did but left before us . Oh well . Food was good as always

Always nice night out at Jonah’s. The food was good, the timing of each course was very good. The wait staff was on top of it. My wife and I were able to have conversation since it wasn’t too loud where we were seated. Overall great experience!

Grouper had no flavor/seasoning, was over cooked or left under heat lamp in window too long. Caesar salad barely had dressing and the dressing tasted like lemon tartar sauce not like Caesar, poor lettuce quality. Poor service, disappointing overall.

Well prepared entrees...the kitchen knows how to cook fish...not overdone! Interesting menu options. Good prices on bottled wines, ordered a Chardonnay that I regularly pay $22 for at the liquor store, menu priced at only $34...so a very good deal. Knowledgeable, attentive wait staff. A good experience

Size of oysters have to be the smallest I've eaten in the past 40 years. Probably won't order those again. Bread crust was so tough I thought I was going to loose a filling. Other than that, very enjoyable evening. Drinks were great. (Brandy Old Fashion Sweet). Scallops were very tasty. Shrimp and fish very good. Veggies were ok. Bread cheese spread was excellent. Service was very good and server was pleasant. Enjoyed salads/size and toppings. Delivery of items were timely. Atmosphere was very nice too.
