Outstanding food and service in an extremely pleasant room. My only disappointment of the evening was the burnt taste of the butterscotch pudding. Otherwise, our meal was superb: first courses we tried were haricots verts “salad,” roasted beets, and seared scallop cocktail; my son and I had the extraordinary pot roast while my wife had a beautiful john dory (sides of baby broccoli, purple yams, and (especially) onion rings were all excellent. Our son’s banana creme pie dessert was also great. Add three cocktails and a bottle of wine and it was one premium-priced meal. But so worth it!
Except for the cocktails, the food was passable but service was disappointing at best.
We arrived on time for our reservation but they were running at least fifteen minutes behind and the maitre’d was troubled by my asking how long a wait it might be! Also the young lady helping seat guests could not remember our names nor what each customer looked like while waiting at the bar!
The bartender created unsavory martinis and picked his hair before placing my lemon twist!
When we finally secured a seat, they placed us in front of the kitchen door in an area that truly should not have tables.
Kept us waiting 40 minutes for a table with a reservation. Not cool
Food just okey with the price that you pay can be so much better at other fine dinning😏
Our experience at JAR was phenomenal! The food was incredible. Everything was prepared to perfection. We enjoyed every moment of our dining experience. We will most definitely be returning customers.
We were there for Valentines day dinner. The food was DELICIOUS! The service was prompt and very friendly. The cocktails were yummy! We were all extremely pleased! I would definitely go again!!!
Excellent food and service. Kevin provided excellent recommendations and answered my questions from cocktails to appetizers to entrees to dessert. Only drawback was the amount of entertainment industry folks eating at Jar.
great food and staff. didn't realize how long this restaurant had been around and the staff turnover is so low. Shows what a great place it must be to work. Definitely going back!
Loved the food
Great neighbourhood spot
The best food in the world doesn't matter much in an understaffed restaurant. Not enough servers means you wait way too long to order-at one point before ordering we hadn't seen our server for 10 minutes. I was angry which is not what you want when paying $230 dollars for dinner for 2! 2 servers for a full restaurant. Also we seemed to have passed a threshold where good food in a fine restaurant is incredibly expensive. 3 very small scallops for $46. My pork chop tasted precooked, it was good but fatty. Again if the experience and food is top notch that may not matter to some.
Food and ambiance was perfect for dinner
We had an 8:15 reservation. Got there at 8:00. Met some nice people at the bar. We live in Century City and tend to hang on the west side. We read about Suzanne and knew Campanile well and as such were excited about our dinner. True to their promise we had a nice corner table.
The restaurant was in full bloom. I did notice though a franticness from watching the wait staff and busboys. Nonetheless our waitress Jessica was delightful. We were thinking about splitting the pork chop as it was highly recommended. Jessica however sold us on the Aged(28days) Porter House which we ordered thinking we could take the uneaten delectable meat home.
The food came. The meat spectacular. The yams, overcooked IMHO. I brought a Seasmoke “Ten”, while not the perfect wine for the steak but yes for the pork chop was amazing. We offered as tradition our waitress a taste usually reserved for the Somolier.
All was going great until “the party of thirty” came in. At first I thought, how great that an 18 year old restaurant was still “ so happening”. Congrats to Suzanne and her staff.
Then the &@$? hit the fan. The food for this large party was planted by the busboy immediately to my left to be distributed. If I wanted to get up for any reason I couldn’t. The smoke from the smoke from the food invaded our clothes. Fine whatever. Then three men from this party move immediately next to me in the same space for a heated confab. “A little space”?! I asked!
Then the busboy brings another tray of food and sits it again immediately next to me! Managers saw how upset I was and moved it to the end of the large party’s table where it should have been put.
By now what should have been a sublime evening was ruined.
Then we get the bill. Should have asked in the beginning the cost for the special, $140. Would have been nice to know that.
Great food, a little frenetic but I feel the management and staff may have let the kitchen and the restaurant down.
We had a 7:30 reservation and arrived right on time. Although there were several tables available we were told that we needed to wait because they were waiting on a party of 30 to be seated. This should not have impacted our reservation at all. There were several other parties of 4 who were getting irritated as well as their reservations were earlier than ours and they had yet to be seated. Obviously they overbooked the restaurant and the front of the house had no idea how to handle it. We were finally seated at 8:10 with only 4 deviled eggs offered at the bar as a I’m sorry. The food was very good thankfully and are service at the table was fine. We won’t be returning. Too many good places to go in LA.
Great dining as always
Jar is simply terrific
Great food and nice atmosphere. Will be dining there frequently.
The food, the design of the restaurant, and the service are perfect.
Amazing experience. Food and staff are stellar
Haven’t dined at Jar in awhile and forgot what a great place it was.. Tried it for DineLA and had a yummy dinner and a perfect martini!
Will have to go back soon.. very cool vibe there, good service..
Always a favorite! We love this place. Clean food, classic! Great service, always a wonderful place to chat. Love the martinis with good wines by the glass. Hooray for Susan!
Great all round!!
I moved out of the area and have not been to Jar in years. It was so good and delicious with specials, drink specials, great wines! Can’t wait to go back. The food and service were superb!
One of my favorite restaurants and we had a fabulous server tonight
Best NYE ever!!!! Thank you !!!!
I’ve been coming to Jar for years. I have a like / dislike relationship with it. Pros: fun, lively and festive vibe and a good size. Very nice and attentive staff. Cons: overpriced and small portions for the cost. There is no value with what it cost to dine here.
Love everyone there and the foos!
Superb all the way around. Excellent menu , staff ambience
Excellent consistent yummy food.
Consistently great food and service from beginning to end! Always a wonderful meal.
We went there for Christmas Eve. Food was delish. Service was friendly and attentive.
The food was superb and our waitress was excellent. It was a lovely evening.
Chris made our evening fun...filled in when our waiter was busy...but he was great also.
We love Jar. Every time we go the food is amazing. The service is sufficiently attentive but not overbearing. What’s great is that the menu has certain standard items, but the nightly specials are usually so tempting that we often pick them. It’s always consistent. It’s always fantastic.
Steak was very good and well cooked. A bit pricey for what you get though. Interior decor is minimal and could use a revamp
Wonderful service!! The server was incredibly knowledgeable and attentive.
food quality has greatly diminished. yams which used to be great were almost inedible - overcooked and hard. service was slow and undistinguished.
When we walked in the first thing you notice was It was very loud, too loud. For a place that’s supposed to be a fairly fancy/nice restaurant It was very hard to have a conversation while sat at the dinner table. The food was average for the price, the service however was great, very friendly and thorough. All in all other than service this place doesn’t have to much going for It unfortunately
Always great no matter what we order. Sunday night fried chicken special a decadent treat.
I was really disappointed in Jar. We had been there before and enjoyed it, but this time the food was only mediocre, my husband's drink was undrinkable even after sending it back, and the service was really slow. It most certainly was not worth the $600+ bill we paid for 5 people. I won't be going back.
The food is always very good and the service pleasant although they seemed a bit understaffed the night were there. It's among the better restaurants in Los Angeles and always a nice evening, but there's no such thing as a light meal there. Bring an appetite and bring a big wallet as it's expensive even for a simple dinner with not appetizers or dessert.
