We have been there before and enjoyed the food. This time the food was not to our liking. Could be due to the high volume from restaurant week. My food was bland and my husband’s dish was so garlicky that we both left half our meal.

I have been to the restaurant before with a friend, and decided to come back because the food was so excellent. Once again the service was very attentive and once again the food was excellent! It was my birthday dinner and I felt very special to be there. I love the spaciousness of the restaurant. We are not sitting on top of each other. The food is always fantastic, this time I had the risotto off of the restaurant week menu and it was delicious. Will be going back again and again

Went during Restaurant Week which might have affected the food and service. The food came out luke warm and the service was terrible. Couldn't even find waiter to send the food back to heat it up. My boyfriend actually had to ask a different waiter passing by to get him a forkI and the wait person made a face but did finally bring it. By the time he got his fork his food which was not hot to begin with was ice cold. I have been to this restaurant before and enjoyed it much more. Didn't seem like they had enough staff to handle the crowd. Would think twice about going back.

Hadn’t been there for years but remembered it as being excellent. It still is. Food is top quality. Attentive service. I ordered the 10 oz fillet mignon. It was prepared perfectly and outstanding. My wife ordered the pork schnitzel which was also amazing.

Very pleased with the experience. We were there for a 57th Anniversary party. The food and service was excellent. I was happy there was a priced fixed dinner or it could have been very expensive, but there was something for everyone on that menu and it was reasonable. We will definitely go back.

The food is delicious and the atmosphere is exquisite. Alex, our waiter was cordial and attentive. There is a variety of menu choices at reasonable prices. This restaurant can accommodate small groups or larger parties. The parking lot is conveniently located next to the restaurant. I would highly recommend this restaurant for everyday dining or for a special occasion.

There is no way to describe how slow the service was. Although the waiter was nice and the food was great, I would never recommend Jonathan's to anyone because the service was so slow. We waited at least 20 minutes for menus, and the time between appetizer and main course was way too long. We only stayed for dessert because it was someone's birthday - the waiter brought the dessert menu and then did not return for more than 15 minutes. One of the people in our party actually said "I thought you were never coming back."

The restaurant presents well, the service was excellent and the server very attentive. Everything was too heavily salted. Scallops were very good but the portion was small.

Went with a friend for lunch who was in the area for a Drs appt. Overall the lunch menu is good but I would have liked some pasta options. The quality and taste of food and ingredients never disappoints. Service was excellent. The ambience is quite nice although the carpet is beginning to look like an ice skating rink (worn and dirty). Love that they still have linens on the table. The bread basket comes warm with freshly made cornbread and other asst. breads. Also a great tradition. I had an excellent lobster roll with cokeslaw and french fries. My buddy had a simple salad with grilled chicken.

Jonathan's is consistently good. The food is always delicious and the service is excellent. The dining areas are always clean and inviting. My only complaint is with the restrooms which never seem to be cleaned. It leaves a bad taste in your mouth. Everything else about this restaurant is A+. I don't understand why someone isn't assigned to keep the restrooms clean.

Just great overall! Waiter was polite and helpful. I've never been there when I wasn't happy with everything. I especially love the soft shell crabs, but they weren't on the menu. The manager explained the crabs weren't up to Jonathan's standards. That says a lot!
