As always the service was excellent (Megan) and with the exception on one steak being more medium that medium rare, everything was great.

I come often. I love the food and service normally but my last visit my waitress was not great. Offered to refill our drinks but never came back. My husband and i shared a water. Never once did she ask if everything was ok

We made a reservation online but had to wait a half hour for our table. We were told that the "reservation" isn't actually a reservation, just priority seating. It was still better than just walking in, but I don't expect to wait that long if I have a reservation.

Best Ribeye I have had in a long time “Maui Steak”, and if your a sweet eater, don’t even get me started on the Carrot Cake... nicely portioned, expect to take some home, you won’t be disappointed on these 2 selections.

Food was really good, but service was all over the place. It was a busy night. We had one person take our order, one bring drinks, one bring the check. So strange.

The food as usual is excellent. Made to order. I had the chicken tacos. I asked to hold the lettuce and add avocado instead with the pico on the side. Came exactly as ordered with shredded lettuce on the side. My wife gets her usual Alex’s salad with chicken. She’s never disappointed. My son had the BLT sandwich with the ham and turkey ( I can’t recall the sandwich name). His only comment besides great is that there is always way too much ham and turkey on it (good comment not bad). Keep up the good work.

The service was just fine but my steak - ordered medium rare wound up medium well. I should have sent it back but did not. Salad was very good. Pace of dinner was rushed - the items popped out one after the other - too fast. Very busy place too big for me.

We've been going here for years and always love it. But this time, the food was cold, the service was slow, I asked for 'medium' on the prime rib, it was rare.
I hope it's not a sign of things going down hill. Hopefully next time will be better.

First time to any of their restaurants . Atmosphere very nice; good food; waiter went the extra mile when our take home boxes disappeared by having our meals completely re-ordered and boxed for us.

The server was excellent! It wasn’t crowded which surprised me when my steak came out medium well instead of medium and my potato was cold. I hadn’t eaten all day so I didn’t send it back. Plus, I rarely send food back unless it is extreme. Nevertheless, I’ll be back because I love this place. Also, for the prices the attire required should be a little more like business casual rather than street clothes like jeans and gym shoes.

We had yet another great experience at J's. The server Jami was great and very friendly and professional. The timing, and the overall service was great with everyone attending to all of our needs and experience.
The food being so fresh, delicious and made to order is so rare these days in the "boil in bag" warm up chains. We will be back.

The experience was good had made reservations the day before on line for an open table. Good thing I did the place was crowded and it was many people waiting were waiting for seats but couldn't get them. My wait was approximately 15 minutes. Some were told it would be an hour and half. Everything was great after that service food and drink...
