We were very impressed! It’s a very classy, upscale place and the food was delicious. My only complaint was it was pricey for the small amount of food you get, but what you do eat is wonderful. They even gave us shots on the house for my partners birthday when the house manager came over to chat with us and found out what we were celebrating.

Jar is one of the few restaurants I have ever visited, with a truly friendly, fun atmosphere. I also had the best steak of my life at Jar. I would recommend to anyone for a memorable, truly fun experience. The staff is down to Earth, yet professional and approachable. Wonderful experience all around

Suzanne Tracht and Preech Narkthong are brilliant! Delicious dinner, cozy atmosphere, familiar, comforting food. Out-of-towers, we drove in from Claremont to celebrate our daughter’s college graduation, drawn back to Jar by vivid memories of a meal we’d eaten there during the college’s family weekend. I would walk that distance for the coq au vin and butterscotch pudding! My husband says the skirt steak with green peppercorn sauce was melt-in-your mouth tender and delicious. The strawberry-rhubarb crumble was a nice seasonal surprise, like home on a plate. Trying to think of another reason to fly across the country for this beautiful culinary experience! Highly recommend!

Elegant, understated, unpretentious. great service, excellent food, drinks, and wine. Was there extending my birthday week with the creative and technical principal of a cool large multi screen cutting edge technology and enjoyed the longest, multi-course feast ending in filet mignon's for both of us. Would and will go back fro business dinners and quiet nuanced dates with good conversationalists. Go there,

My ribeye was very fatty and a little tough. Have had much better ribeye steaks. The beet salad was just okay, a little tasteless. My wife's filet was excellent. Our chocolate mouse and banana cream pie deserts were also excellent. The service was perfect.

I think I first went here about 10 years ago with my sister who introduced me to thhe world of gourmet dining with this restaurant. I had the coq au vin then, and it blew me away. I didn't know chicken could fall off the bone like that and melt in your mouth. My brother-in-law had the pot roast, and it was nothing like my mom's....it was MUCH better! My sister got the lamb shank, again, same mind-blowing experience. This experience inspired me to learn the technique that made such great dishes...braising! My sister then got me a dutch oven as birthday gift after this visit, and I was off learning, always trying to recreate the tastes and textures of those first dishes I had at JAR. Oh, i forgot to mention the chocolate and butterscotch puddings. Again, tried (in vain) to recreate those at home. I went back many times. But then, for no reason in particular, I stopped going. Walking back in last night, was so great and heartwarming as it was like no time had passed at all. All the amazing dishes were there (i got the coq au vin again), all the great ambiance, all the great service, and attention to detail. Even the owner and head chef Suzanne Tracht was there to say goodbye as we left. I'm not going to take so long to get back there, and look forward to my next visit at one of the best restaurants in LA and now one can say, one of the longest ones there too as well (which is a feat in this city).

Jar's food is simple, clean, and wonderful. Our table had pot roast, lemon grass chicken and dover sole. We ordered sides of sauteed pea tendrils and duck friend rice. Absolutely no disappointment with any of the above..................delicious. We shared the banana cream pie and that was not great. Definitely would return on next trip to L.A.

We had heard of Jar’s Sunday Night Fried Chicken Dinner and thought it sounded wonderful. It was not.
We were seated promptly, and offered drinks from their bar. We ordered one drink and also promptly received two tastes of wines by the glass we requested. You must pre-order the dinners so the server was aware. She did not offer the standard menu for additional offerings until we asked. We proceeded to order the “popular” deviled eggs and an additional side of cream corn. The eggs came out quickly and were dry and bland. Five pieces come in an order. We each tried one and thought they were awful. The server inquired if we enjoyed them and we told her no. They sat on the table until the busses removed them at the end of the meal. Our entrees came 35 minutes after our single appetizer, and after three tables, who sat well after us, had received their dinners and were almost finished. The chicken, and mash potatoes were warm, the gravy very bland and cold, the biscuit room temperature and the only thing hot was the corn. We were brought a complementary dessert for our wait that had a film on it from sitting in the refrigerator, topped with whip cream that didn’t have film on it.
Remember we didn’t need to order. They knew our order as it was pre-ordered.
Very disappointed in that no one cared and that in this day restauranteurs think a free dessert make the bad taste go away. Keep the dessert. There are plenty of excellent dining experiences in Los Angeles.

Jar is one of my favorite restaurants although I don't get to come very often. When I do, I'm always really happy I came. The food is superb and the service was excellent. It was my friend's first time there and she loved it so much she didn't want to leave.

We enjoyed our birthday celebration at Jar. We tasted many of the dishes from the menu including soft shell crab entree, pot roast, beet & burrata salad, arugula and date salad, creamed spinach and white asparagus. We especially enjoyed the pot roast and beet salad which is lighter than most including long thin slices of cucumber. Everything is beautifully plated and the service was great.

NOTE: we did not find much on the menu for dessert as most were dairy based.

Had a friend and business dinner at Jar this week. Everyone at the table ordered something different and everything was amazing. The wine recommendation from our server Jessica was great. She was really helpful in her recommendations and advice. An all around great experience.

I have been to Jar a few times and always wish I lived closer so I could just sit at eat at the bar more often. Great place.

I was inspired to eat here by the movie La La Land which showcases this restaurant in one of the movie's more important scenes. The waitress explained to me - with patience and politeness - where the scene was shot and where Emma Stone sat to eat her meal. I must say I felt enchanted. I see why this restaurant was chosen to be in the movie. It's modern decor and ambience exude LA style. This is why we live in LA to eat at places like this. Notwithstanding the good feel vibe created by being part of a famous movie scene, the restaurant stood on its own with great service and great food. The patrons that had gathered the night I was there were good looking and in a good mood. You will be too. Dress well.

The coq au vin was a little "brothy" but still very good. The beet/burrata salad amazing! One thing I would suggest is asking the wait/bus staff not to wear strong cologne. Some of us are very sensitive to scents and would like to be able to taste the food.

Pot roast, char siu pork chop and sautéed halibut all delicious. Four of us shared 3 entrees, appetizer, salad and several sides. Every one was happy with food. Gave server 2 credit cards for equal split and he returned 2 slips, one with all but $20 charged in one card and the other with $20 charged. He fixed it when we pointed it out. Really loud, especially irritating when the party next to you is a member of the loud family. Same diner bumped/rubbed his butt on our table as he got in and out of his adjoining table.

At 7:45pm, there were menu items that were not available. Service was poor and restaurant was extremely loud. Servers and busboys were knocking into our chairs constantly without ever apologizing. We have not been back to Jar for awhile as we live here in LA and abroad, and will not return. We are telling our friends about our bad experience on Wednesday nite.

After seeing restaurant’s pot roast on Food Network’s episode of “Best Thing I Ever Ate” I took my wife and kids since we were in LA. Inside Jar is a intimate setting with dim lighting, and a friendly atmosphere. Not really meant for kids due to limited choices for them on menu but we made due. Pot roast was great as advertised but I wouldn’t say it was the best I ever had. However it was soft, tender & a must try if you ever visit. Please be advised that restaurant is pricey and noise level is high because of small space but was a nice dining experience.

The food at Jar is always great. We have our favorites, although they always have interesting specials. We went with our favorites, lamb shank, which is a regular special, for my husband and pork chop for me. He had the wedge salad and I had the butter lettuce salad - excellent. We also shared an order of creamed spinach which is more than enough for two. We went early and sat at the bar, as it was just the two of us. I tried the Spa Water cocktail which I really enjoyed. It was not too sweet and not too tart - just right. The restaurant was quiet early - tends to get noisier later on. This is just a great restaurant for comfort food with a gourmet touch. It is also a great place to bring friends. The service from the bartenders and kitchen staff was perfect.

The previous week we had shared an order of Mussels, and so enjoyed them that on this visit we decided to forego a meat order and each had mussels as our entree. The previous week the mussels were very large when we shared. When we each ordered our own, the mussels were tiny... We wondered if they were trying to discourage us from having mussels as our entree.

Always a great meal here. The acoustics are pushed when there’s one really loud lady 2 tables away. Her obnoxious voice and loudness just about ruined our meal. We decided to hurry and finish so we could leave and go to the train station for a nice quiet dessert!
