Thanksgiving dinner always lovely here. Very nice atmosphere. Great service. Love seeing Jonathan himself right there working and enjoying his guests.
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.
Over priced not enough food for the money left still hungry went fir thanksgiving
Thanksgiving dinner for our party of 8 was enjoyed by all! We had a room to ourselves which made conversation for the older folks much easier. The food was delicious and our servers were right on top of everything.
Restrooms need some work, but otherwise everything was great!
Perfect as usual. Jonathan's gets it right, great food ,great service and a great show. They make you feel at home.
Simple but good menu. Lovely environment. Dined overlooking the gardens.
We have been going to Jonathan's for 30 years. It has always been great. We just attended a concert and medium in the past month. Nice evening out with entertainment and dinner.
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 service is wonderful and the food is delicious. Small portions and a bit on the pricey side. Nice play to go before heading over to the Playhouse . Staff is wonderful !
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.
Fabulous chicken piccata and local garden salad. First rate.
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.
They have a good wine list at Jonathans. There are not too many options for vegetarians. We were there to see a concert with dinner prior.
Beautiful presentation, most delicious salmon ever! Looking forward to a future experience.
Have dined at Jonathan's a number of times. The food and service has been consistently good. Atmosphere is more formal than many Ogunquit restaurants and often features live music. The music and the conversation of other diners can make for a somewhat loud experience.
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.
Jonathan’s is reliable for good food and nice atmosphere. Jonathan himself is usually there to look out for customer needs and the rest of the staff is attentive. The food is fresh and creative.
