Nice restaurant, good service. Apps were ok, mains just eh. The Ravioli special was good, I enjoyed the braised boneless short rib special (loved the crispy onions), the rib eye was just ok. The duck, however, was very tough. Waiter had to be asked a few times to refill water, never asked if anyone wanted more cocktails after first round, however he was otherwise very personable.

I arranged a reunion of retirees and wives reservation for 8 and almost everyone had indicated this was a good choice having been here before. Service by Alex was great and so was the food. I made one request of our server, to have separate checks for 3 couples and two singles. I thought this was a reasonable request and would have been easier for all for payment purposes. Alex gave one check and we needed to make determination of how much everyone owed.

We sat outside and the traffic noise was a bit loud at times. Perhaps some plants in front of the tent could muffle the sound a bit.

Nice setting, very quiet enough to hear each other talk. Service was very attentive to us. The food was outstanding. Price of the meal and service was expensive but for such good service & food you should expect to pay that much.

This is a fabulous place to go for brunch. A very nice, extended menu that goes beyond the typical waffles, pancakes and eggs. A lovely basket of bread and muffin items are complimentary and plentiful. Even with a large crowd of people around us, we were able to have conversation without raising voices. Have not been for dinner which is pricier. Fair pricing for brunch. Excellent service!

Had a lovely birthday dinner with friends last night. We love seafood and tried their scallop special along with grilled shrimp and shrimp scampi dishes. All were delicious and solid portions with sautéed spinach and I had orecchiette. The only weak part was their Caesar salad. It lacked flavor. The portion was large that we split into two. Had their apple cobbler and cheesecake for dessert and they were both yummy.

Jonathan's has a comfortable and pleasant area for outdoor dining, which is where we ate. We had the special pear and gorgonzola salad, which was fresh and delicious, and the grilled swordfish, which was cooked to perfection, and also delicious.

The Restaurant had changed a lot since I was there several years ago, and I wasn't aware. I had one picture in my mind from last experience, but when I got there the restaurant was unrecognisable. Inside had no ambience at all. Just large rooms with bare walls. Food was very good. Unfortunately I won't be going back.

Server was terrible. Annoyed to be serving us, annoyed I asked about gluten free meals, never came around to ask how everything was. Brought the bill after dessert and 1 hour later after the bill was sitting waiting for him, told us he had to make a change to the bill, the drinks were never added. No “I’m so sorry, the bill may be incorrect…”. Can back with a separate bill from the bar with 2 drinks. One had already been added to the original bill. My friend was told that she had a drink at the bar earlier which she did not. When we told the server he was even more annoyed and came back with the correct additional bill and said “0h we’ll someone got away with a free drink then”. Not acceptable. The only time he was friendly was with the big thank you at the end after he returned the check for us to sign and saw that we had tipped him. It was not my opinion to leave an appropriate tip but my dinner companions insisted. I don’t feel it’s fair to the other servers there who have always been wonderful.
Food was delicious but very small portions and a little overpriced as usual but the outdoor seating was wonderful and we were certainly not rushed.

Our waiter was great. My daughter is gluten free and he was very knowlegable and every time he put something down, confirmed that it was gluten free. That said, my only complaint is that I called in advance and was told they had a separate gluten free menu (as is posted on the website) and when we arrived they said they don't have a menu, they just star the items on the regular menu. Certain items were not the same as the website menu. But it was still a nice meal with a bunch of options and very good service.

Wonderful dinner. we were in mood for seafood and the halibut and scallop specials were perfect.
Mini duck tacos were a delicious and fun starter and the creme brulee and cheesecake were a great finish.
The staff is friendly, attentive and efficient, making this a great dining experience. We will definitely return.
