We went there for the steak and had the porterhouse for two. It was perfect.
We also had Kumamoto oysters to start with. Everything is good. Highly recommended.

Phenomenal dishes and spot on service that was friendly yet still professional made a very special night. I hadn’t been in some time and am fixing that with plans for upcoming visits! What a marvelous night!

The food and service was excellent. I highly recommend the mussels and at least 2 loaves of bread to soak up the amazing liquid! The steaks were great and the onion rings were fabulous. Starting off with a great martini made the evening special. This is a restaurant I look forward to going to again. We had a lovely evening here and the dining room had a great vibe.

We really enjoy Jar. We got there for our early reservation and we’re seated immediately. Server was excellent - made very good suggestions for both food and wine. While the dining room is getting a little dated, it’s very comfortable. All good.

Fine food but the noise level, even seated in a corner booth, was not conducive to remaining. We had mains only and left to have dessert & drinks elsewhere. I think weekend nights should be avoided if seeing old friends & wanting conversation.
Prices abit on the high side but overall, justified.

Jar is out go-to for my husband's birthday. Nothing like elevated comfort food. We love their pot roast and all the sides like creamed corn and fries. Their chocolate pudding is the best too.

This is the second time the I have eaten here and it did not disappoint. The food and service are always top notch. There are lots of choices so everyone can find something wonderful to eat! The pot roast is always amazing and save room for the butterscotch pudding!

The food is always consistently good here. The pork chop is the best I’ve ever had, the pot roast is excellent, and the sides and salads are all delicious. The chocolate pudding and the butterscotch budino are not to be missed.

There were very few patrons at the restaurant. The food was timely but service was poor and food presentation was what I would expect at a lower end restaurant.

Jar has an old-school atmosphere, even though it has "only" been around for 18 years. It is elegant without being stuffy. The food is excellent, with most dishes easily shareable. The burrata and beet salad, pot roast (a signature dish) and the side of purple yams were standouts. Also excellent cocktail and wine selection. The butterscotch budino for dessert was delicious. Excellent choice for a special occasion, or just Sunday night dinner.

I was really excited for this. Coming in, the ambiance was awesome, super hip but not annoying. Clean and friendly. Kevin (waiter) was mega energetic but I was a big fan. Sadly, the food just was not great at all. One filet mignon was overcooked, my ribeye felt like it was bought at Ralph's and not somewhere like Huntington Meats. I literally make better steaks on my own... every part of the meal was underwhelming. Just sad that that was the case. Hard to say if I'll ever go back...

The food was many “old favorites”, but nothing innovative. It might be wonderful if you are looking for that. The decor was really old-fashioned and the acoustics were terrible. Maybe the round table made it hard for us to hear each other because we were so far away. Our waiter was good, but a busboy in his hurry to clear the table sprayed me with red wine. It happens and I don’t expect anything other than an offer to dry clean my shirt. However, it was not acknowledged and that is not right when you go to a restaurant of this price.

Our waiter Kevin did/did not do the following:
- sprayed/spit a huge amount of saliva all over my face.
-I asked him if I could have my salmon spicy and seasoned and spicy sauce. He said absolutely
- he took our order and 5 minutes after he came back put his hand on my friend and me which made my friend very uncomfortable and said that he had forgotten what I had ordered. I reminded him and he left.
- our food finally arrived. I was starving. My salmon was not at all what I had ordered and I could live with that but what really got me was it was a really bad piece of fish. Shame on the chef for even sending out a piece like that.
- all of our side dishes were incorrect.
- then he came to tell us the right side dishes were coming out and there was no sorries out of him. We told him about the salmon. Then manager came to me and took care of the salmon issue. I wanted to tell the manager all of the above but I couldn’t as Kevin was hovering near by.
- then my husband’s steak wasn’t cooked the way he ordered and it was way too rare for him to eat it. He finally had to ask him to cook it a bit more. His steak still came back pretty rare
- then we were given dessert menus but he wouldn’t come back to take the dessert order
- I finally had to ask the guy serving us more water to take our dessert order but Kevin heard that so he then took our dessert order.
- then the bill arrived without any compensation. Not even the coffee was compensated.
What a horrible waiter, kitchen staff, chef and experience. After I got home I called the manager Renata and told her all of this she apologized but hesitantly, reluctantly and non committal in her response for any compensation. I had to literally pressure her to tell me what I would be compensated if I was to return. She said salad, drink and maybe dessert. The more I think about it the angrier I get. Terrible service from everyone and especially disappointed in the manager who lacks customer service skills.

I love this restaurant and go a lot. It's always great. But my last visit was on a Sat night and it was rough. They sat us about 30 min late at a very loud table in a not great area cause our table still wasn't ready. It was a big disappointment because they are usually awesome about reservations and it made us stressed and in a rush. I also remember the main room being much more quiet but we were in a side area near the bathroom and it was insanely loud. My advice is don't go on a Sat. It's too expensive to be annoyed.

My boyfriend and I had the skirt steak and it was a delicious piece of meat - one of the best I've had in a while. I would say that the decoration is a bit staid and the menu is not elevated - more old school steak house (I mean, there are sides of applesauce and creamed spinach to choose from). We split a heirloom tomato salad which was just ok. The bread was delicious. The cocktails were as well, though fairly steep in price. Service was good and most of the patrons had dressed for a nice restaurant, so it does make for a nice dinner experience overall.

The table ordered 3 pork chops - all cooked differently. Mine perfect, one slightly overdone and one way too well done. Maybe stick with the pot roast.
