Our waiter was knowledgeable and very friendly and accommodated one of our guests dietary needs. Myself and another guest got the schnitzel and it was delicious. Served with tasty potatoes and shredded beets, the combination was amazing! The warmed bread pudding with a scoop of vanilla ice cream topped the dinner off and was so surprisingly yummy. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends and family. I found you from the Inn Keeper at The Blue Shutters Inn in Ogunquit.

Great dinner prior to Christmas concert in the events hall upstairs. She had chicken special and I had home-made lamb sausage from Jonathan's farm. Both were excellent. Concert was terrific.

We were here to see Paula Poundstone, and had a fabulous meal! We enjoyed an artichoke appetizer and the bread with special blueberry butter was yummy. For dinner, we had the New Tor Steak with garlic butter and the Salmon. both were well prepared. I would highly recommend a dinner and show!

Great place before the show upstairs. I would recommend it for dinner and a show only. The specialty coffee we ordered was cold but the value with a show was definitely spot on and would not complain. We will definitely return if there is a performer again that we would like to see.

Lovely dinner with family for a special event prior to seeing Paula Poundstone upstairs.
Food was excellent. We all cleaned our plates.
Music started out nice...holiday background music...perfect for allowing dinner conversation.
Music changed 1/2 way through dinner to a louder jazzy style....we were all but yelling at each other while conversing. All four of us commented on it. Ended up going upstairs early so we could finish our conversation in a quieter area. Service was excellent, staff quite friendly and professional.

I was in Ogunquit for a mother/daughter weekend and read good reviews about Jonathan's online. We had a reservation and were seated only after waiting a few minutes. We were seated right inside the dining room next to where the waitstaff hung out which was a little odd as there were plenty of other nicer open tables available. We could have said something but if I am going to review a restaurant I will review it for what it is and not what my complaints get me. When our waitress came over she immediately asked us what we wanted to drink. No greeting or introduction which felt very impersonal. Food was just okay. Nothing very impressive. Started with a Caesar Salad and then had the filet. Both were fine. First martini was nice but the Oreo dessert martini did not taste like an Oreo and was sickly sweet. I left most of it. Overall the place felt dated, the food was sub par and there was nothing to sing about, including the service.

Great atmosphere and comfortable. The service was a little slow and the waiter was not as attentive as I would expect. Our bread never came and refills on drinks were slow. The clam chowders were delicious and the steak was nicely flavored. I would return but the meal was a little pricey for the overall experience.

Our second time for Thanksgiving dinner with the family. It's fast becoming an annual tradition! Everyone loved their dinner selections from the turkey dinner option to the trio combo of turkey, lamb and pork. We love that it's made to order and not a buffet. We look forward to next year!

My wife’s turkey dinner was delicious. My stuffed haddock also was delicious. The payoff was the apple crisp which was outstanding. Jonathan and his wife stopped by our table and showed us the apple trees in the front of the building where the apples came from. Staff and owners were very friendly.

We celebrated our anniversary at Jonathan's and could not have asked for a better romantic date. We mentioned on Open Table and when we arrived the host wished us happy anniversary. The dinning room was very quiet and we had a table by the window. Our food was farm fresh and perfectly seasoned and executed in every course. Lobster was on their special list and we both chose that and it may have been the most tender delicious lobster we have ever eaten. Our waiter was extremely pleasant and even walked us to the back to see their fish tank and the back sculpture in the back garden. If we return to this area of of Maine we will definitely revisit Jonathan's.

The lamb shank is really good here. We sat down at 5:30 pm and the kitchen was out of them. Sadly ordered a steak, only to find out that there’s no rice in the restaurant. Seriously dudes ... you can’t keep a $0.99 packet of ready-to-go in 90 seconds rice in the house?

Two of the people at our table of four were then told, sorry, but we’re out of Tenderloin Steak. This is the evening of a ticketed event. You know how many people are coming. Could you be prepared? The self evident answer is that the restaurant has no customer focus.

This is the second event I’ve attended with the same experience, so I guess this is what is to be expected.

To their credit, the staff did remain in good humor while their management was berated for general incompetence.

Lastly, and further evidence of complete disregard for guests, was the very pleasant but so poorly trained server. She spent minute after minute struggling to enter our order on an iPad. Poor software, poor training, and utter disregard by management for their guests.

This place could be sooooo much better with sooooo little effort.

Ate at Jonathan's as part of a special venue credit for attending the Holly Near concert. My partner is gluten free and was served pre-dinner gluten free rolls! Very rare to find a restaurant that will do this. The chicken piccatta I ordered was prepared with chicken cutlets, cooked very crispy and served with capers and lemon butter sauce. I prefer chicken breasts and there was so little sauce, and very little lemon flavor, I had to ask for lemon wedges to add some taste, but otherwise the local carrots were excellent and the mashed potato was nicely prepared. My partner had the lamb shank, a huge serving, and served with only rice as a gluten free dish. The lamb had very little flavor, could have used more typical lamb seasoning. The house merlot wine was very smooth, though I have no idea what brand. Service was attentive without being overbearing. Could have used a little more lighting where we were sitting near the windows. A single candle wasn't sufficient to be able to see clearly what you were eating. Jonathan's is a wonderful entertainment venue, bringing in some of the best talent in a comfortable performance room upstairs. Having access to a restaurant downstairs before the show was nice. We will be back in the future.

Went to Jonathan's for the Holly Near concert which was TERRIFIC. Dinner was good, I had the scallops and they were a bit over cooked. Service was attentive. Dessert upstairs was good (chocolate mouse). The coffee was luke warm and terrible, disappointing to say the least. Lovely setting for the concert, intimate, good sound, and a lovely way to hear Holly, Tammy, and Jan.

Although we had a reservation we waited 20 minutes for our table. The décor is dated as is the clientele. We were seated and were greeted by a friendly waiter, who informed us they work in pairs and was told that the other waiter would be by to take our drink order. The second waiter appeared 10 minutes later took or drink order and disappeared. The drinks came 15 minutes later, our steaks were done correctly but the potatoes were cold, vegetables ala cart and we ordered green beans which were dry and over cooked. We asked for a desert menu, but decided to forego desert since it took them to long to bring the menu.
There are so many options for dinner in Ogunquit I would go elsewhere. Not only terrible service but very pricey

We had a fantastic anniversary dinner here. There was live music in the bar area - far enough away to not preclude conversation, but close enough to enjoy listening to. Our servers were friendly and helpful. I tried a daily salad special that sounded intriguing (zucchini ribbons, grilled summer squash, local greens, pecans, goat cheese and adobo vinaigrette) and it was fantastic.

Third time we have been here. Our only disappointment was the waitress. The bus person was more attentive, friendly and accommodating to our requests than the waitress. She seemed very disinterested in serving us and the other customers.

Jonathan's is a GREAT place to eat and see a show/concert. Their dinner and concert ticket package is worth getting.

Food was excellent as always from apps to dessert.

The only bummer this time was the level of service we have come to expect.

My husband and I both had delicious steaks with garlic butter and mushroom sauce. The wine was excellent and house made apple crisp was warm and delectable.
We will return to Jonathan's on our next trip to Ogunquit.

I gave this night out to my friend for her birthday. I can only rate the service and food from what she told me. They enjoyed their meals but the service was a little slow. She had to get up and get a waitress to serve them. Had tickets for the Don Campbell Band night of Dan Fogelberg music, which they said was an "awesome show" would definitely go back for dinner again and a show. Because they had a good night out, 4 of my family members will be having Thanksgiving dinner at Jonathans. I'm hoping it's a good experience since it's my idea...
