Jack's Bar & Steakhouse
Truffle steak tartare, quail egg, toasted anchovy, parmesan, mascarpone sauce
The food was worth the money, overall we had a great experience
Jack's cannot be beat for steaks in the New Haven area. Every menu item is cooked to perfection, however it is all made to order so if you need somewhere fast, this is not the place. If you want an upbeat atmosphere, exceptional food, and the friendliest servers this is your place!
Jack's Bar has a New York vibe - the atmosphere was energetic! The food was delicious, and the service was exceptional. I would definitely go back.
Had a great meal at Jack’s! Sat outside for the first time and our waitperson was excellent!!!! Definitely recommend!
Would highly recommend Jack’s. Both the service and the food were exceptional!
Made reservations for Mother's Day at 11:30AM for brunch. Much to our surprise, our waiter informed us that because it was Mother's Day, they were not doing brunch because it was too much. If you're not having brunch, it's only fair to alert the customer prior. There was nothing I saw on the website to indicate this. (Maybe I missed it?) We stayed anyway. Our waiter was excellent and food was good. We were hoping for brunch on a Sunday morning and not dinner. Oh well we made the best of it.
Great place, amazing service, food is perfect and I love the atmosphere.
Food was mediocre
The food was amazing. We had the pretzel, asparagus, charcuterie board, steak tartar, Tomohawk, filet mignon, Brussel sprouts, mashed potatoes and a variety of dessert! Everyone though their dish was delicious. We had a wonderful time. Thank you!
Love it as usally
Food was ok. We enjoyed the appetizers more than the dinner. The service was slow but very good.
not prepared with staff to serve a not full restaurant. 15 minutes after we ordered we were told they did not have either of our entrees. we were billed for both of these plus the replacements we ordered. luckily i checked before they ran our card.
We were barely waited on, but it was also very busy so understandable. My food was just eh but my friend had a steak and loved it.
Very friendly staff, great ambiance and overall good experience. The pricing was pretty high for the amount of food you get. The taste of the food was decent but nothing too special.
Food was horrible. Would never go back. Drinks were not even good.
Honestly, I was shocked at how bad this place was. It was soo loud I could barely talk to my partner. My food was mediocre and my partner’s food was bad. His steak was burned and way overdone. I got the tostones trio, the shrimp is cold. Possibly mention that it’s ceviche toped to avoid a misleading description however this was not even the problem. I was mid bite when I realized I was not eating food. I looked at what I had been chewing and it was the BARCODE STICKER of a fruit or vegetable from the kitchen. I sent it back and they did comp me but still it turned my stomach. The wait for two deserts was atrocious. We saw a server come out with our food, didn’t know what table it was for and we didn’t see it for another 10 mins (despite trying to flag them down when we saw their confusion; the noise problem) the top of my creme brûlée was burned and for such a high end restaurant that was a major disappointment after the trainwreck that was dinner. Oh and we wanted a tomahawk but unfortunately they had sold out. Arrive early if you want to order that. The booths were uncomfortable so larger people be advised. Would not return.
Great food Great service! Can't wait to return...
Bryce was our server...he was excellent. The food was amazing.
Quality does not match the price. Very confusing atmosphere.
Absolutely outstanding food! Service is fantastic and a great ambience! We loved every minute. Will definitely be going back. FYI....I had the steak salad and was the best thing ever ☺️
Enjoyable meal with friends, good atmosphere and service. Food was fair. All steaks came out very over cooked and all side portions were small and some overdone. Mashed potatoes were delicious! Overall it was a fun time and no complaints on the service but for the food we received it was very overpriced.
The ambiance was nice. Our server Bryce was extremely sweet. And the food was good!
The best food end drink ever with love going over theare for the food and drink with go ever other week end
Jack's has become my "go to" place, always pleased with the service and the food!
it was great would def come back everything was perfect
Have always enjoyed Jack's. Food is very, very good, staff very attentive. All COVID protocols are adhered to. We'll be back!
This restaurant was annoying and disappointing on every level.
The food itself was okay, though not great. (Bland calamari, yet a very good steak salad.) But the service was awful. The dining room was noisy and had a peculiar layout. If you happened to be seated in the center your table had white tablecloths. Otherwise, you're seated at a booth and you feel like you're at a TGI Friday's.
The service was God awful. I couldn't keep track of who my waiter was -- I'm not sure he could keep track of our table. After he took my order, he was content to never return. I never once heard the words "Can I get you anything else?" And when I ordered a second cocktail, it took forever to arrive.
My friend and I skipped dessert because we couldn't wait to leave.
With difficult parking and steaks ranging in price from the high $30's and up, this place needs vastly better service than what we experienced. I don't anticipate ever going back.
I made a reservation but they were closed and I couldn’t eat there.
Made reservation for 2 on 2/22/21 took an Uber ride there to fine out they were closed .
We went for Valentine’s Day and made a reservation ahead of time.
Pros. We got there on time and the wait wasn’t long at all.
Our waiter was amazing, super sweet, kind and knowledgeable. He ended up buying us a glass of champagne to make up for the inconvenience that we dealt with. The food was also outstanding. That and the service were worth the price
The cons. Even though we had a reservation they seated us basically on top of other people at the tiniest bar top table not at the bar. We could barely fit our waters and drinks at the table never mind any food. When our apps came and we realized we didn’t have room to eat we asked if there was a way to be sat at any of the bigger tables that were now open. We were told those tables were only for people with reservations.....20 min later those 3 tables were filled by couples only. We also had a reservation so why we were specifically stuffed at the tiniest table was beyond me. This may seem like a complaint just about the small table but it also meant we were two feet away everyone around us and from the door which are all heavily trafficked areas. So not only was it difficult to eat because of space on the table itself, it was difficult for us to even eat without being hit by a passerby. Which I know a lot of people think this pandemic is over but it isn’t. It didn’t seem as Covid friendly as we hoped, which may also be because it was Valentine’s Day. But for the price we paid were were hoping we were be more comfortable in all aspects of our meal.
All in all I would say this. Maybe go here on a less in demand day or night and protocols will be better followed. Make sure you are sat at a table with space and everything else will be worth it.
Service was terrible, told the waiter we wanted sauteed mushrooms and brought out mash potatoes. We asked for our mushrooms, when they came out they were bland.
My fiance and I had a nice time here for dinner. The only things that bummed us out about the evening were the noise level of the restaurant and space. We had to talk quite loudly to one another just from across the table. We also felt pretty cramped being put along the edge of essentially a walkway that the wait staff and servers were using. The food was wonderful and all the staff was very nice. Just wish it was more of a quite, personal meal.
Absolutely amazing!!! Table was a little small. Service and food amazing
This restaurant had a nice atmosphere. Staff was friendly but food was just ok for the price.
Great bartender! Awesome music, not too loud where you can’t talk which is always a nice thing. Drinks and food are always on point. Happy hour is deff a plus.
Food and service were excellent
Jack’s is a great place and I’ve been here before but I feel like they are NOT aware of COVID restrictions. While at a booth, they set up tables less than 6 feet away just to squeeze more people into the restaurant.
It was totally unsafe and we left quickly after that. I understand wanting business but not at the risk of others health. I would not recommend you go here during the times of COVID.
OMG!!! The food was absolutely GREAT! My second time there and i would definitely be back ❤️
Perfect worth the price
Excellent steak. Drink was a good size and good ambience
