Jar is a staple. Always a great evening with wonderful food, great atmosphere and great service. It's a pleasure to be able to actually have a conversation without shouting across the table also.

I was extremely disappointed last night with our dinner at Jar. It was Thanksgiving and we were 8 people.They were quite late in seating us which we understood due to Thanksgiving. The service once seated was terrible. The table had nothing on it..not even a bud vase, a flower ..something to show it was a special evening. My soup was served without a a plate under it. Food was thrown on the table without any proper serving utensils. They didn't have proper utensils on the table. for us to eat with. I have been to Jar before and it was great. It was the reason I looked forward to going back. We left with a $1300.00 bill which would have been fine had they actually performed. Really really disappointing.

Thanksgiving dinner, set menu, quality food but difficult to serve in mass quantity as still have good taste. . Some dishes such as mashed potatoes, not much taste, the thinly sliced white meat only turkey was very dry. A very very small bowl of gravy , also quite flavorless, was served on the table. We assumed it was to help with the sad potatoes and turkey, but considering that size bowl was barely enough for one of us (there were 4) we all politely shared a few small spoons of it. The stuffing mixed with the missing dark meat of turkey was very good, the Au Gratin potatoes also very good. Oyster stew was very good as a starter, but was only enough for two spoonfuls.
$100 would have been fine, but the food didn’t match up with the price.

Fantastic room. Good food, great service and staff. Our second time and we were again impressed with the overall feel of the experience. The Thanksgiving Pre Fixe menu was tasty, and also a bit pricey. We would say that it was well worth the cost, but after the gratuity added and the very overpriced mocktails, we felt a bit grouse for the holidays. Overall a good experience, and we have definitely recommended this restaurant to our friends and family!

Chef/Co-owner, Preech Narkthong came to the table to greet us, and educated my guests about the restaurant and food. I've not had a quality meal since dining at Jar.

The food was very good. Our waitress Rachel was cheerful and efficient. The quiet was great for talking with an old friend. We ordered mostly the specials but didn't ask about the prices and were surprised by how much they cost.

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.

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.

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.
