We dined at JTK twice this weekend! The food is outstanding. You can’t beat the wagyu hamburgers, they’re consistently delicious and even better when paired with the truffle fries. The cocktail program is excellent and they have the best whiskey selection in town. The staff is professional, friendly and service is always excellent.

Service was very slow even though they were not busy. Our sever never came to see if we wanted more drink nor did he ask how the appetizer was which was really good. My husband's steak was ordered medium rare and the cook on it was rare on one end medium in the middle and well done on the other side. Our server was no where to be seen to try and get his remedied. We had to track our server down for the bill and to pay. Not what you expect from this nice of a restaurant.

We had the date night special: parmesan fries, flatiron steak and pork schnitzel, and blueberry bread pudding. All were very good, particularly the fries and steak!

Excellent!!! Their cocktails are great too.

First time eating here. It was great. I decided to book a reservation for my Birthday. Due to the recent COVID-19 Direct health measures, I was unable to invite more than 8 people or otherwise they would have sat separate. I think this will be the new norm. I think they did a great job having everything prepared. My waiter was also the bartender and the drinks were fantastic! The food was overall good taking in comments from everyone at the table. I really liked the Blueberry bread pudding! Yummy. Will definitely eat here again.

We went here for our 20th anniversary, really our first time out during the pandemic. We did the date night menu with the truffle fries (out of this world!), the flat iron with mushroom risotto and the chicken gnocchi dish (also both so good, the risotto was as good as the best I ever ate in Nice, the steak was a bit stringy), and the blueberry bread pudding (delicious and perfect for two). We couldn't eat it all! We will definitely be going back. Our server was wearing a mask and acted not self-conscious at all, which of course we appreciated. He was attentive but not annoying, and was extremely good at his job. My only suggestion would be something chocolate for the dessert...maybe three choices instead of two. ;) I highly recommend JTK Cuisine & Cocktails!

Had a great time, enjoyed the dinner for two, with a bruschetta appetizer, salmon and steak, and some amazing blueberry bread pudding. Food was all prepared perfectly, and drinks were on-point. Definitely recommend!

The two pasta dishes were not good. The steak ones were. On my gnocchi dish they covered the top of it with artificial bacon bits. Yuck!

So yes it was Valentine's Day but the food was below average, service was ok and they threw us in an off room that felt like being put in the kiddy room. They should have told us when I made the reservation that we would not get to actually sit in the restaurant.

I went on valentines day. We were sat at table 54. Both ordered the rib eye steak medium. My potatoes were dry, my steak was undercooked. My server Eli HARDLY ever came to my table. I watched as several other servers came back to the surrounding tables multiple times. However our waters were always empty, another server had to bring us the food. We basically just sat there for over an hour with no service. The first time I went there it was amazing.. but this time around has prompted me to not go back.

We had a wonderful evening at JTK with two other couples for a pre-Valentine’s Day dinner. Our waitress was awesome, and we could visit without having to yell over loud music. We love to come here because of the quiet atmosphere.

Cocktails were very good.
Salmon was over cooked.
Even after requesting rare.
Bread pudding too sweet.
Fries a little oily.
Wedge salad was good.
We eat here once a year.
Wanted to like it more.

First time dining at JTK in quite sometime. It is now much more casual than before. The dinner menu seemed to be dialed back a little also. Overall our dinner was pretty good. The appetizer, firecracker shrimp, was good. Drinks were good. Dessert, ghiradelli chocolate brownie, was really good. We ordered the ribeye steak with mashed potatoes and asparagus. The steak was very good. Lightly seasoned with a bit of salt and pepper. The only complaint was one of the steaks was severely over cooked. Still edible but not enjoyable. The manager did offer to cook another one, but we did not want to wait for another meal to come out. They did instead comp our dessert. Overall, a fairly good meal but it will be a while before we go back.
