Great food, great drinks, great staff. I would recommend JTK to anyone going out on a date, the Dinner For Two is a great choice.

Everyone in our group loved their food, and most had never been to JTK before but said they'd definitely come again!

Half-crescent booth for a date was fine but not preferred. Had to turn to our sides all night to face each other. Food and drinks were fine, but not outstanding. JTK’s interior styling is its weakest point: too bright for dinner. McMansion styling. Service was earnest and attentive.

I am a huge JTK fan! I use it often for business meals and love it to relax with friends and family. If you haven't tried it...you are missing out!

Whenever we stay in the Haymarket we enjoy a meal here. The location and atmosphere is classic. We like that it is quiet so we can visit. Our waiter was awesome! I forgot his name. He was friendly and we related to his fun personality.
The salmon was perfect the way preferred. So crispy light on the outside. Brussels sprouts appetizer is delicious. And the White Russian ice cream is dreamy. Would be lovely for a romantic evening.

Excellent! Food is outstanding. Might be the best salmon I’ve ever had. Wait staff attentive and very knowledgeable. This is the perfect date night place. Highly recommended!

Table service was attentive and knowledgeable. The dinner menu is dialed in so variety for entrees is limited, however, what our party of four consumed was excellent. Their wine list on the other hand had a generous selection, from affordable to stratosphere bordeaux.

Fantastic food and the best service we have seen. The kitchen was notified of an allergy and took it seriously. Everyone was so kind! Thanks for a wonderful experience!

For dinner we each had the Wagyu Filet and it was by far the best steak we've ever had. My partner is extremely picky with his martinis and they hit the nail on the head and my glass of wine was perfect.

The service was fantastic and was a great balance of being attentive to our needs yet distant enough to offer us some privacy and allow us to enjoy our time together.

One thing that would have made it better would be to dim the lights a little in the dining room. The lighting was a little to bright and the mood wasn't what we were expecting.

Every single bite of our food was excellent. Service was there when you needed them and invisible when you didn't. Also the demeanor of every employee we encountered was pprofessional and pleasant.

I organized a dinner with a visiting client and several members of my local team. I chose JTK for their wine selection, atmosphere, menu variety, and the overall dining experience. We were not disappointed with anything, though the service was a bit clunky. We believe that Nolan (the server) may have been a little new/under experienced, but he was fairly attentive, cordial, and represented the menu well when asked. I will be happy to bring my clients to JTK again whenever I have them in Lincoln.

Our table of three had a salmon, pork and chicken entree. All where delicious and a reasonable value. The service was efficient even when they got very busy. Will be back as often as possible.

Pappy menu was outstanding from the bar, if a little expensive (even for pappy).

The food was mediocre for a place like that, as was the service.

Won’t go back except to possibly drink more.

Very nice meal and great service. Love the atmosphere. The date night meal is a great deal. We weren't planning on that but since both of our meal were on the date night menu we took advantage of the appetizer and dessert. The blueberry bread pudding was delightful.

My order was wrong, so I was served later than the rest of my family. It was so loud that we were shouting at each other to be heard. The appetizer and main course were good but not great. The desserts, however, were amazing.

The Brussels sprouts were underdone; the steak was overdone; the wine pours were stingy; the prices were high; and the waitstaff clearly wanted our party to leave early so they could close up and get out of there. I'd heard good things about JTK for a number of years, and so I was excited to go. But I will never go back--and will tell others not to waste their money.

Service was really great, the entire team made us feel welcomed. Server was willing to modify our entrees to our liking to make the experience unique. The host was very attentive and was happy to discuss ingredients and techniques of preparation. The support service was very friendly and attentive as well. My love and I had a wonderful evening celebrating her birthday! Highly recommended for any occasion. JTK is one of my favorite restaurants in the city!

Customer service and food quality 5+ stars. Noise level too much for me but the other qualities outweigh the noise level.

We haven't been to JTK in a while. Enjoyed our meal. Three of us ordered lamb chops, but only two platings available. We were promised a little reprieve on our bill, as a result, but that did not happen. We wanted to buy a bottle of champagne for another table of about 10, flagged the waiter, got the wine list, then he disappeared. I gave four stars, maybe 3 is more accurate.

The rib eye steak needed a little more seasoning but otherwise was great. Cocktails, dinner, coffee and dessert was less that $100 for two people. Wonderful service.

While the service was good, the food was sadly mediocre. Despite the location in an historic building, the food was under seasoned and mediocre. The steak & eggs was bland and tasteless. The parmesan truffle fries and sweet corn fritter appetizers were good but nothing to write home about. The pork schnitzel was ordinary. I really wanted to like this restaurant but sadly left disappointed.

My girlfriend and I took my parents while they were visiting from out of state. They were accommodating of my girlfriends specific food allergies and the waiter was fantastic all the way through, which matched the food and drinks.

We have visited JTK for years now and are never disappointed. This time the food delivery was a little too quick (which we've never had in the past ... and yes, we realize this is a minor problem especially compared to delayed food delivery), but our server was gracious about it and we didn't mind. We always know we can count on JTK for a special experience and we weren't disappointed this weekend.

Hidden gem, great food, service and price! We were seated in a back room next to a larger group, there isn’t much sound barrier which made the noise level somewhat uncomfortable.

Great atmosphere and location is beautiful amazing service staff. The plating and food was ok. My parents split the lamb and the just brought it out in two bowls for them instead of plates. Kinda hard to cut a piece of meat in a bowls. I had shrimp peen Alfredo and it tasted like what I would serve at home and cold.
We liked the set up and the coffee press at table was great but since no one was there we thought waiting 50 min for food and then it being cold was not the greatest others ate before us that came after. (5 tables only in place had people)
