    Most of the time J Theodore is pretty reliable and high in quality. Today, it felt like it was under new management or completely under staffed. My service was mediocre, you could tell the server was overwhelmed. The food was ……yikes. Very haphazardly assembled. Gigantic chunks of tomatoes on refines dishes, huge clumps of feta, it was just really shocking. Like I said, I’ve been there many a time before. The standard is not something I’ve been used to.

    The waitstaff was not as attentive as desired. Had to waive down others to get our waitress several times. Loved the food but felt it was a tad overpriced. Totally love the environment ash’s the DJ on Sunday was fantastic!

    This was our second visit to this establishment & the service & food are exceptional! This particular evening (2/17/24), they had a musician on acoustic guitar, singing, & the volume wasn’t so loud that you couldn’t have a conversation or enjoy the meal. The Rare Books Bar also had a musician on acoustic guitar & the ambience was lovely. We’re definitely going to be regular customers!

    We had been to Jtheodores 3 times before this visit, and have always loved it - great service, great food, love the menu options and the swanky atmosphere of the restaurant. This time was different - we went for lunch Saturday and was told we could only order breakfast, which we didn’t want but didn’t have a choice. We walked into what seemed like a nightclub at 12:00 pm on a Saturday with a 4 month old baby - there was a DJ and it was so loud you couldn’t even hear yourself talk at the hostess stand, I’m not sure how anyone at the tables could have conversations. We thankfully were seating in a small room away from the DJ. We waited 15 minutes to be greeted by a server. Asked the waiter if we could have food off the lunch menu because that is what we came for and he flat said no without even asking a manager or chef. We could only order from the breakfast menu. Very disappointed, and we contemplated leaving at that point. We ordered food and it was fair at best. Breakfast burrito was bland and dry and the ham omelette was overcooked, dry, and flavorless as well. We barely touched our food and our waiter didn’t ask how our food was as he clearly could see we weren’t eating it. 2 breakfast items, and an order of fried $65 later. Overpriced for terrible experience. Not sure if we will be back

    We were seated in the area to the right when you walk in. While it was quieter than the main dining room, the tables were ridiculously close together. Also, couldn’t take my eyes off the food that was on the WALL. Need to step it up and clean!!

    Our waiter for dinner was exceptional, if it was based on him service would have been a 5. The poor service was at the bar. The bartender ignored me to take my drink order & when we asked him he raised up his hands & said I only have two! Very bad attitude!

    Food and Service was outstanding . Not a big fan of loud DJ music while eating . Kind of takes away from the experience of dining out if I have to talk over loud music . Perhaps you can crank the volume down a bit .

    J Theodore was great as always. The truffle fries and Calamari were great as appetizers. Wine list is limited but selections are good. Entrees were outstanding. We had the scallops and salmon and they were great. Served with risotto. Service was excellent.

    The drinks were horrible. The DJ played music so loud inside (Sunday at noon) that we asked to be sat outside. The food was cold. Thw avocado toast was horrible. The tables around us remained unbussed. Will not be returning.

    The food was very good but the prices differed slightly from what was advertised on Open Table. The service was great but we felt a little rushed. The cake slice was massive and super tasty. Overall a great spot with a nice atmosphere and great food but it was a bit loud.

    The shrimp diablo was fantastic. I had an expresso martini and it wasn’t on the menu the server gave me. It was recommended by a friend. It was $19!!!!! Rediculous. My cupcake was dry and tasted like it came from the freezer. I was disappointed. The server was mediocre. Not friendly.

    This place is beautiful and the food and service were great! we went for brunch on a Sunday around 10:45 AM. I had made a reservation the afternoon before and found that most of the restaurant was already booked up so we ended up sitting on the patio surprisingly even though it’s January the weather was nice and they had space heaters to keep us warm. I had the French toast it was amazing so delicious I didn’t care for the diced potatoes. Think I would recommend going with the fruit instead the bacon was nice and thick and cooked perfectly. My husband got the salmon and bagel board. He said it was good but he would have preferred to have been able to construct the bagel himself rather than have it already made with the cream cheese, salmon, capers, etc. another member of our party got a breakfast bowl which she said was really good.

    The service was very hurried and the food arrived within 10 minutes of ordering!! The very minute one of our party put down a fork, an employee was on the spot asking to clean up. That behavior was extremely rude and made everyone in our party uncomfortable because several had not finished eating! The same employee would literally reach over us to grab an empty wine glass.

    Just okay for me. The biscuits came out cold and almost instantaneously, which suggested they had been sitting there for awhile. The chicken in the spicy chicken sandwich was thin and not juicy or tender. The pancakes, though, weren’t too shabby. Ambiance was nice. Waiter got friendlier as the meal heated forward. Probably wouldn’t make a return trip.
