We tried Jar for the first time to celebrate my fiancé’s new job. It couldn’t have been a better place! The food was outstanding and we loved every recommendation our server gave us. We loved the American-Asian fusion in the dishes we ordered. We kept saying how we would definitely be coming back because there was so much we wanted to try on the menu.

Jar is one of our favorite restaurants. We were so happy to return during COVID to celebrate our anniversary. They took very good care of us and we felt very safe during our entire meal. Our dinner was delicious. We can not wait to return!

It felt like a cheap restaurant trying to be a nice restaurant, and failing. The menu was full of creative descriptions of what turned out to be basic food, and the place had a weird habit of charging (steeply) for each individual thing like bread or a veggie side (punctuated by saying ‘that comes with complimentary sauces’). If those things were nice upscale flavor experiences I wouldn’t have noticed… But it was a wedge of iceberg lettuce with thousand island accompanying a hamburger patty described as “chopped sirloin”.

I could have ordered our entire meal at IHOP.

Service was ok. I felt like they were rushing us. First thing they tell us is we have an hour and 45 minutes to dine. Really? That’s your welcome? I just spent $500 and you’re rushing me out? Wedge needs tomatoes and bacon. Oysters need some more sauce options. The portions for the pot roast are way off. We were hungry after dinner. Corn and spinach were delicious. Pot roast was also delicious, but just not enough.

The food needs a refresh. Salad overdressed with too much vinegar, halibut just a sad bland piece of grilled fish. Sauce choices need to be rethought. Carrot cake over refrigerated and dry. Great yams, butterscotch pudding always fine. But they seriously need to rethink things.

Had a bit of a wait for our reservation (we showed up on time) but the mâítre d’ was very good about being aware of our wait and keeping us updated on the availability of the table. We had a very nice table - ambiance was elegant but fairly minimalistic - felt a little like it could use a bit of a refresh but overall was nice. Menu is known to be “old favorites” so nothing super modern but everything was very well prepared and very tasty and nicely served. The waiter said that ran out of halibut as they usually do, very early in the night. Unfortunate but still many other things to choose from. He offered a salmon dish that wasn’t actually on the menu.

Covid measures were followed well. We thought the check in desk was a little oddly placed as you have to make a steep step up (ladies in heels) from the street - really could use some sort of ramp or something.

Wine list was good but not extensive - both my hubby and I were satisfied with our wine selection. Drink list looked interesting but we didn’t partake.

As a starter we had the celery root soup which was excellent. It came very quick after ordering. My husband and I both enjoy a pork chop on the rare side. They prepare to medium but it was still delicious. Maybe could use a little more of the char sui marinade or even a little on the side to make it a little more flavorful. My lemongrass chicken was also excellent. A little spicy, went really well with the pea shoots we ordered on the side. But the star of the night was the banana cream pie. We’d literally come back just for dessert. It was like sabayon - very delicate topping of whipped cream, pie crust was buttery and flaky.

The only thing that kinda made the experience less nice was the very loud couple sitting next to us who felt the need to talk loud enough so everyone knew their business. Kinda put a damper on the night as we could barely concentrate on our own conversation. Perhaps a little music could have helped dampen the noise.

In the F&B industry for over 25 years now. Inexperienced host staff who made it a point to let us know we where 10 minutes early. Outside dining fine, but not a 2 top table and chairs on the gravel cmon. Then 10 minutes to get greeted by server and 15 more to get drinks. You would think after 25 minutes when drinks were dropped server would take the order at the same time...nope waited 10 more minutes till I caught his attention to come over. Ordered celery root soup and fries to start. Soup was good but nothing to write home about and fries were good (but they are fries). Then served the pot roast which was a tiny piece of meat sous vide in what tasted like only red wine. No salt whatsoever or spices and served with one ring of sous vide onion and a very sad piece of overcooked carrot (no peeled with top just a nub). My wife had a filet that on a plate, nice looking but NO flavor. Definitely not a prime cut. For sides super bland mash potatoes (again NO salt) that were crusted on top from sitting under heat for too long and creamed corn which was actually tasty.

Then to finish butterscotch pudding with a lackluster presentation and no complexity in layers or flavor. Like boxed pudding with canned carmel on top. Took chocolate chip cookies to go that were just sad, don't know what else to say. Also banana cream pie that definitely tasted like banana, thats all nothing else. Quite possibly the laziest attempt at banana cream pie I have ever tasted. Oh did I forget to mention not to go plastic wear included so we had to rip off and use the cardboard box corner to fashion a spoon.

All this with 3 cocktails and tip (still tipped 20%) for only for $280. I expected much more or really anything from the personal recommendations I was given for this establishment. Might be time to check the recipes or retrain the kitchen staff just saying.

another great meal at Jar. We sat inside and though it was pretty empty at 6.30pm, by 8pm when we left (you only get the table for 1.5hours) it was packed, or at least as packed as the city will allow. maybe my favorite steakhouse in LA for it's unfussiness and cost vs. value proposition.

Our first visit to Jar since the pandemic began. We sat outside, which was nice. But the service was slow, and the waiter forgot to submit our main course order, so we waited and waited and wondered where the main course was, and finally got someone's attention. The waiter at least admitted this was his fault, and was good enough to comp desert.

Jar food quality remains very high, if not quite what I recall from earlier visits. We'll go back someday, but this was disappointing.

First time for my birthday celebration...the customer service was horrible! The steak was undercooked. The server was rude and unprofessional. He acted like it was a my problem that the steak wasn’t cooked to my liking. Restaurant is overpriced. So disappointed...will not be returning.

This was my first time dining at Jar. I made a reservation at 9:30 for 2 to be sat inside. The host said it would be approximately 5-10 minutes before we would be able to get a table. We didn’t reach the table till 10 pm and we arrived at 9:28. Being that this is fine dining if I make a reservation I should be sat immediately. The food was pretty good but I’m not sure if I will be back.

First, very pricey, no meal under $30 with no add-ons included. Everything a la carte.
Paid $49 for their most expensive steak, and while the seasoning was terrific, it was supposed to 16 oz and delivered to the table probably 8 oz. The steak was NOT worth $49.00.

Second, ate indoors and the dining room is so dingy, like a restaurant from the 1960's, zero decor at all.

All in all, probably won't return given above.,
