We do an annual dinner during the holidays with 5-8 people and we had such a wonderful time. Our meal was exceptional providing us with a unique experience (we shared the 4lb pin-bone steak).

Ordered the rabbit for 2, appetizers, and several drinks. Food and drinks were good. On a date but were seated at a large table where as almost all other couples seated in booths or two person table. Not sure if it was because host assumed we were just friends (2 men)? Or because we were younger we wouldn't spend as much? Hard to have a conversation across the long table in center of the room.

This was our first visit and though we enjoyed the decor and ambiance, and the food was quite good, we found the service to be lacking for a restaurant of its caliber. Several times we waited over 15 minutes for our waitress to come back by to check on whether we needed more water, or another round of drinks. We also waited nearly 45 minutes between our appetizers and our main dish. Also, portion sizes were lacking for the prices that were being charged. We likely will not be back, given the many other nice restaurants in Portland with far better service.

We had a 7pm reservation but we were seated at 7:30pm.

Ordered immediately after sitting but didn’t get our food until 8:30pm.

Ordered dessert but the server forgot about it.

Left the restaurant at 9:30pm. Very annoying experience.

I don’t recommend this place.

We had a wonderful birthday lunch for my wife here. We both had perfectly prepared salmon. I had a delicious and plentiful salad with vinaigrette and my wife had bruschetta. The meal included still warm fresh baked cookies for dessert and the restaurant provided my wife with delicious flourless chocolate cake for her birthday. The service was friendly and very good. All in all a great place for a celebration lunch.

We went there for dinner before a show at the Arlene Schnitzer Hall a couple of blocks away. Our waitress was excellent and very mindful that we had a minor time constraint. The food was wonderful. Will keep this in mind the next time we're in Portland for a show!

Party of 7 including 3 kids and 2 octogenarians. They gave us a room which was a godsend since the 80 year olds have a low tolerance for noise and the main dining room was pretty loud. Server was very professional and patient. Wine special was tasty but not the “value” advertised. Food was amazing. The buttermilk fried rabbit shared for 2 was special but better than the rabbit was the crisp salad and zesty carrot sauce that came with it. Kids enjoyed their kids meals and Shirley Temples but the star for them was the flourless chocolate cake for dessert. This is a special occasion restaurant due to pricy menu but well worth it.

Food, nothing to write home about. Had the only rabbit dish on menu. Breaded and fried. Served in a large compote it was hard to use utensils so ended up eating it like fried chicken. Cooked properly but the carrot and spice spreading sauce was awful. Good salad. Guest had hangar steak. Reports she could taste the salt more than anything else.

Service was good Good music but cranked up pretty loud. Made conversation at the table challenging.

We chose this restaurant because of gluten free annotations on Open Table. Waitress assured us no gluten on selections and checked with chef regarding specific spices.

We’d come back for the service, not so much the food.

We went for Thanksgiving. The atmosphere was great, but the food was sub-par. For a $69 pre-fix menu I would have hoped for better quality. The first course was small and decent and the main course was also mediocre, but nothing to write home about. The pumpkin pie dessert looked and tasted as if it came from a grocery store. I suppose it is what one would expect going out on Thanksgiving, but for the price, I don't think the food matched up. However, I did have the best mocktail I've had all pregnancy! It was seasonal with beets, passionfruit, ginger, and other delicious ingredients.

Service was polite but very slow and unapologetic. Food was mixed. My pork entree was very fatty and under cooked. One friend said his was just plain bad and one friend thought her halibut was great. My husband's hamburger was fine but overpriced for a no imagination basic. Whole thing felt like it was trying to hard to be hip and landed instead on pretentious and poorly done.

We did not have a great experience here. The rabbit was fried nicely, but the accompanying bowl of lettuce was undressed and weird. Service started out not great, with our server having to ask us three times what our drink orders were. End of the meal was very slow and had to wait 20-30 minutes for the check and payment process. For $130 for two people, I would not go here again.

From beginning to end my experience at Jackrabbit was exceptional. The ambiance is unbeatable and the food was to die for! We had a group of six and each of us tried something different. Entrees of note- the Bacon Chop- do yourself a favor and order this, delicious!! The chicken was also exceptional, I can confidently say it was the best I have ever had. Aside from the food, the ambience was wonderful! Fun and energetic atmosphere and buzzing with conversation. A great spot to visit if you haven’t tried it.
