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.

It’s always a pleasure to dine at Jonathan’s. Our monthly friends’ get togethers are always a joy as the service is spot on and the food doesn’t disappoint.
My friend ordered the crab cakes and was disappointed that there was more breading than crab compared to what she had ordered before. Other than that we were all pleased with our food

The perfect spot for a casual outdoor lunch! In addition to the regular menu, there was also a nice 3-course prix fixe option. So many salads and burgers to choose from, but I decided on the pecan crusted chicken salad which was huge and so delicious while my sister had the chicken burger with a side salad. Our server was friendly and accommodating and no one rushed us out which was appreciated.

It was a busy night for the restaurant. Service was a little slower, but the servers did their best to keep up with the demand. Tonight we had the lamp chop salad and the steak salad entrees. As always, the food was delicious and the service friendly.

We enjoyed a delightful luncheon for four. The menu was somewhat limited but offered all the basics that one could wish, including a 'price fixed' option which offers an appetizer and desert.

We live nearby but have never dined here. We had a gift card so figured - Why not? Ate outside under the tent. It was not bad even though it was a hot/humid day. Our server was attentive and we never had to ask for water refills. We didn’t drink but I noticed that at a nearby table, the wine was a decent pour. Good to know! The food was a good portion. Nice presentation. Fresh and flavorful. Everyone in our party was happy and we left full and happy.
