In an elegant but not too fancy setting, Jar delivers surprisingly large portions of meat and the traditional accompaniments. It’s steakhouse fare done so much better. Throw in a Jar Manhattan cocktail and you’re on the way to a great evening.

we have been to Jar many times and it has been good to very good. Their Thanksgiving dinner was not thought out well. Limited menu choices, even for Thanksgiving. I knew we were in trouble when they put down a very small rectangular plate. The soup was cold. The Turkey and what they considered stuffing was tasteless, and cold. Mashed Potatoes and Potato Au Gratin? No Yams. Tiny portion of pumpkin pie. Also had to wait 45 minutes for reservation. Very disappointing. Looks like they were making an assembly line for the bucks, and no consideration for their usual top food.
I'll probably go back for pot roast and budino, but never again on a holiday

I went to Jar because A Magazine recommended it for Thanksgiving. We were seated on time and the staff did all they could to make the evening special. The biggest problems were it was so loud it was difficult to talk with the person I was dining with. Food delivery wasn't slow, but it wasn't prompt either -- there was too much time before the first course came and it didn't improve a lot. The worst thing was that the food arrived at the table warm, and for turkey, scallop potatoes and things like that it could hardly have been much worse. The staff seemed stretched and stressed but I would be guessing to say why, but clearly the kitchen wasn't prepared to serve up the food and have it delivered to tables promptly. My dinner companion and I live close by so we didn't feel like we had made a big effort. The cost of the meal was high considering what was prepared. There was more entree and side dishes that two people could eat but then the dessert was skimpy.

We had an amazing meal at Jar! There were at least a dozen "off the menu" specials and we started w/ stuffed squash blossoms, an amazing lobster & watermelon salad, and the crab deviled eggs. Our mains were a perfect ribeye steak, seared scallops, and a really tender pork chop. Dessert was the butterscotch pudding and toffee bread pudding. Everything was incredibly tasty and perfectly cooked - it was a wonderful meal! Now I know why my friends have been raving about this place for years!

Sucha fantastic experience. The warm friendly attentive service led way to tasy apps and a creative beautifully presented main course. Craft cocktails, and an extensive wine list was not overlooked either. We wanted to try everything and the the kitchen was kind enough to split our coq au vin and pot roast (not your mother's pot roast). The salads and the mussels were tasty and beautifully presented. Rich chocolate pudding and cream pies and a fun visit from the owner topped off the experience. We highly recommend jar for whoever is lucky enough to be in the area of Suzanne's masterpiece.

The food was delicious! I went for a birthday dinner and everyone was thrilled with their meals, plus the desserts were incredible. However, while the servers were friendly and kind, service was extremely slow. We didn't even get to order drinks or look at the menu until 20 minutes after we sat down at the table -- and the restaurant was only 30% full. This is not the place to go for a quick dinner, but if you have 2+ hours it's a lovely experience.

The service and staff were exceptional, my son and my meal was delicious, however my husband and sons father's meal was not great. The chicken was dry as my sons father had the Sunday Chicken dinner, he did not enjoy the dry chicken at all. My husband commented that his was dry and needed some seasoning or salt he said it was very bland.
