Wasn't impressed by the fried chicken that's their Sunday specialty. The chicken must have been too moist when it was fried because the skin separated from the meat of the chicken entirely. The pot roast & the pork chop were very good and the sides were generous portions. Didn't care for the butterscotch pudding (also their specialty) tasted a little too toasty. Very nice ambiance and love the round tables for 6 able to have a conversation across the table. Very good service.

Shame. Wanted to fall back in love with Jar but didn't. Been there twice in the last month and both times terrible tables. I guess I am not "regular" enough. Loved our waiter a few weeks ago; second time; pushy and said we weren't ordering enough, REALLY? We ordered plenty, thank you! Lastly, two young guys in cargo shorts wondering around to table socializing? I know Jar can be 'clubby' but its not Ceconni. I am sorry but at $150+ a person, what host allows someone into a fine dining restaurant on a Friday night in "cargo shorts"?? Who in 2018 still wears these 1980s shorts? Beyond appointing..Jar was a mainstay for me for many years, not sure why it is still around. There are so many choices in LA, I was hoping Jar was "it" again for me, but NOT.

We had one of the best dining experiences in recent memory at this established bastion of fine dining. We had not been there for some time and were stunned by the entire experience. The service was flawless; the atmosphere conducive to conversation; the food was outstanding from start to finish. We eat out several nights a week and will mark this as a regular stop.

We went for a family birthday with four people ranging in age from 18 to 50. We all ordered different appetizers and different entrees with all being outstanding. The pot roast, the pork chop, the Caesar salad, the Brussels sprouts and the fries really stood out. Service was excellent. We’ll definitely return.

I enjoyed the dim lighting and decor. The food was good with fresh ingredients. Our waiter Tomek was incredibly good and cared about the quality of his work. He was knowledgeable about the food and wines, attentive yet unobtrusive, friendly and professional. Our dining experience was made better by him. Thank you Tomek.

Very unpleasant experience. I made a reservation for a party of ten, expecting nice table at the main dining area. However, we were sitting not at the dining room but in the corner past the bar by the restrooms, hardly got any service. Waited around forty minutes between first and second courses. Salad dressing for Jar signature salad was pure vinegar. We were charged $10 per serving of mashed potatoes consisting 3-4 tablespoons of powdered potato and $5 per bottle of filtered water with an explanation that restaurant has expensive filteration system. We should have left when we were offered sitting arrangement. Jar is just another restaurant I would recommend to avoid.

Beautiful restaurant with a great nod to Mid-Century design with good food and decent service. We ordered two of things the restaurant is known for: their pot roast and their crab deviled eggs. Both were perfectly good, but in all honesty, neither was really anything special or worth the hype. But that said, we'd still go back in second for the atmosphere, and next time, we'll just order differently.

It was my wife’s birthday and this is her favorite special restaurant. We have never been before on a Saturday night and it was packed and noisy and the wait staff was obviously harried.

The waiter didn’t write anything down – which is their wont – but then screwed up the appetizer order And neglected to bring one of our party of four’s salad. We also questioned him about the soup special as my wife cannot eat anything at all spicy and he said it wasn’t at all spicy.

It was - so we sent the soup back and she ordered a salad. Now we were waiting for two salads. They took quite a long time to get to the table.

Our entrées and sides were all delicious and the dessert was fine although the coffee came a substantial amount of time after the desserts.

When I was presented with the bill the soup is still there. When I was able to get the waiters attention he apologize profusely and said he wasn’t going to charge us for the soup or a salad and took the bill and my credit card away. He came back with the bill charge to my credit card and he neglected to take the salad off the bill which had offered to do. At this point we just wanted out so I paid and we left.

Because we hold charge to such a high standard and have had several good meals there over the last many meals, we were quite disappointed in the service and the billing snafu just left me with a bad taste in my mouth – something I don’t expect from a restaurant as fine - and as pricey - as Jar

Jar has been around for a number of years Suzanne and her staff do a outstanding job.
The food is tasty with staple items like pot roast, her specials are so flavorful finding in season produce at the farmers market.
If you haven't been mark this down.
My next adventure is Sundays for her fried chicken.

Awful. Just awful.
If you love blaring 80’s music this is YOUR place. Prices on booze and wine were outrageous. Nice pour, but at $16 per shot......

Steak was coated in something with lots (and I mean lots) of salt. $420 for dinner for two is ok. This place is way overrated.

No repeat. No thanks
