    The ambiance was pleasant and the food was good. The kitchen was a bit short staffed but aside from the longer wait, it was wonderful.

    Both the pork and mushroom pie and the chicken and leek pie were delicious. Really enjoyed the red sangria too—just the right amount of sweetness.

    Good food amazing service. Loved our waitress. But our food took FOREVER. An hour passed and we didn't even have our starters. They gave us free drinks and bread to make up for it but still. We had plans and we're getting delayed.

    A tucked away gem on the Upper East Side that may look like a pub but delivers bistro meals served by a welcoming staff in a rustic and homey atmosphere, so British you'd expect to see the Wife of Bath at the next wooden table. The one negative only beer and wine because of the proximity to a school.

    Food was edible but not much more. We ate outside which was probably a mistake. Ambience was dreadful. Dirty, dying plants, cheap decorations, and hot. Service was very good. I will definitely not eat here again.

    Love this place. Wines are excellent. Interesting choices for beginnings and enjoy the traditional English fare. However, we chose to sit in their garden area on a very hot evening and the ceiling fan was not working which made it a bit uncomfortable. It did not discourage us from staying for delicious dessert.

    Unfortunately this restaurant was a disappointment. I don’t come to the city very often anymore but was curious about trying out a British restaurant. The brunch menu looked great. I got a Yorkshire Pudding for an appetizer and it was over cooked, nearing burnt. I asked for the traditional English breakfast for my main dish and the waiter said “they didn’t have it.” I ordered the eggs Benedict instead and it was lackluster and flavorless. I was super excited to try the Sticky Toffee Pudding as I’ve had it many times in the past including London. It tasted like pure cinnamon. I couldn’t even finish it. The spritzer was like drinking water and the sangria was pure sugar. The waiter was inattentive. I was extremely disappointed, especially with how many good reviews this place has.

    Three of us enjoyed our meals at Jones Wood Foundry, which specializes in British food, and we were happy to be there during Restaurant Week. Both the food and the service were excellent. We started with salads and popovers, then two of us had the fish and chips and one had the roast chicken, all delicious. The portions were large, so we had some left to take home. We were a little disappointed with the sticky toffee pudding, which had too much ginger in it for our tastes, but we were very happy with the rest of our meals.

    Jones Wood Foundry is a neighborhood staple for us, but I have to say that the last few times we have been here the service is slowly degrading and the food quality hinges on the inedible. This is a gem of the Upper East Side that once held its weight with the mighty old-school restaurants in the area, the Elios and the Campagnolas, but I am disappointed to report that our experience last night made us question if we would come back. To be clear, this is a restaurant that we have frequented at least once a month for the last several years, and watching the service and food quality degrade is a huge loss for the neighborhood. To start, it took nearly 20 minutes for my partner and I to get a glass of wine. The restaurant and bar weren't busy, so I am baffled as to what took so long - a good restaurant should give you your drinks in the blink of an eye. In addition, I don't understand why there is a printed menu but the bar menu is now via QR code. Everything used to sit neatly on one double-sided piece of paper, with all the food on one side and the drinks on the other. Why have two separate mechanisms for looking at the menu? This makes no sense. We ordered the butternut squash ravioli and the ricotta with sourdough bread to start. The ravioli, once the highlight of the menu, was bland and lacking flavor this time; the raviolis were drenched in oil. The ricotta was fine, but the bread served with it was not the true bakery sourdough they once served. My favorite entree used to be the sesame-crusted tuna that rivaled any steak in the city. Last night, there was a "new" tuna dish, not sesame coated, but simply grilled. It was over-salted, (again) lacking flavor, and served on a bland bed of oily potatoes and frisee salad. Our drinks were empty for nearly 20 minutes and no one came to offer us a refill. We decided to leave without ordering our favorite toffee dessert, and it took an act of Congress to get our bill and to have them run the credit cards.
