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!

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)

Although a bit sparse for my taste, the ambiance is above average. But the food was super. Both of us enjoyed the Date Night special, ordering the salmon over Parmesan risotto w/Brussel sprouts. Only comment about the food was that the crème brûlée was of pudding consistency and the toasted top shell was a bit thick. Other than that, the experience was grade A. Anxious to go back.

We have eaten at JTK’s several times. The food and ambience are excellent. This is the first time we have ever had to send back the food because it was just lukewarm. They corrected the problem and we had a great time. Their crème brûlée is the best that I have ever had. We would highly recommend JTS’s to everyone. This is one of the best restaurants in Lincoln Nebraska.

We’ve been to JTK many times, but I have to say the last two times have been subpar. Most recently, we went there for a date night meal. The balsamic salad dressing was awful, my chicken was over cooked and the asparagus was yellow and soggy. The creme brûlée was ok, but the custard part was a little runny. Our waitress was relatively new and she did a good job, but we were disappointed in the overall experience. When you spend $120.00 for dinner and wine, you should have much better food.
