Jar Ratings and Reviews
Relatives were in town and I'd recently read about the pot roast in a novel I'd been reading. It was just as good as the characters described.
From the pork chop to the cod to the pot roast and chicken - everything we had was great except the green beans.
We brought a kid who loves meat and she was happy, but I wouldn't call it kid-friendly. Though it was kid friendly enough
Was seated just past 8PM for a 7:30 reservation. The room is exceptionally loud for what never struck me as a trendy restaurant for the hip crowd. I couldn’t hear the person next to me. But it’s a decent room. The waiters are good. And the food is decent and not terribly overpriced.
Great feel of the place and the food was delicious. Only one problem for me is the room is too dark and you literally cannot read the menu and see what’s in the food. I guess I’m not the only one have problem seeing because other patrons also using their flashlight from their phone to read the menu.
Jar is a favorite with our family. We always bring friends new to L A., to Jar, to start their visit off right. We know they will enjoy the entire experience: cocktails, wine choices, appetizers and entrees; the atmosphere/ambiance and the staff is welcoming and professional. We do not eat meat but never leave hungry. There are so many vegetable options to enjoy. We love everything about Jar and we never miss an opportunity to share Jar with friends.
A little slow in seating, but very nice about it. Two of us had the pork chop and loved it. The special squid salad with the jalapeño dressing was excellent , and I don’t normally order spicy foods. We were under a speaker and had trouble hearing one another. This is our fourth or fifth time eating here and we would come back, but ask for a quieter location.
I used to eat here all the time, in the last decade, but when they kept the same menu I wanted something different. 17 years later, it's still the same menu and everything is still good but it's feeling a little tired. Nice service and all the dishes were very good.
This is our favorite restaurant in LA. We eat here all the time and whenever friends are in from out of town, this is our spot. The food is always cooked to perfection, the produce is fresh, the seafood is amazing and of course for steak lovers....can't think of a better spot.
I love this chic neighborhood steakhouse. The low lighting and sophisticated decor gives a sumptuous feel to the dining experience. The staff is very attentive and accommodating. Best filet mignon and mashed potatoes! The skirt steak was under-seasoned, so I can't recommend. But the filet and the fresh lettuce wedge with bleu cheese dressing were so great, I would go back in a heartbeat.
In the most recent Michael Connelly book, Harry Bosch and Mickey Haller (the Lincoln Lawyer) meet at Jar for their famous pot roast. So I wanted to try it. It's melt-in-the-mouth good. It came with 2 sides for our group to share - fries and pea tendrils, which turned out to be the rest of the pea vine except the vine, the peapods, and the peas. The friend who loves spinach loved it because she thought it tasted like spinach. The friend who hates spinach loved it because it didn't taste anything like spinach. I liked it to, but I didn't think it tasted like spinach. Lovely place, an incredible number of servers, bus boys, etc constantly on the watch, delicious food beautifully prepared - I'll be very happy to eat there again!
The best way to enjoy jar is to stick to their tried and true dishes. The steaks, the pot roast, the mashed potatoes, and the butterscotch pudding all have an esteemed reputation. As many other reviewers have mentioned the cocktails and the mussels should be avoided. The bar simply isn't up to par with what you get at similar establishments in LA and the mussels are very hit or miss, mainly miss. The bernaise sauce that accompanies them is amazing and does mask the earthy taste of the less than fresh, but better to go with the caesar salad or another app. The service when I was there on a non-holiday Tuesday night during dinner rush was phenomenal, my only complaint is the bussers were constantly hovering to clear our table. I could've used a little space there :). Overall, I'd say go to Jar for a great steak and enjoy it with a glass of wine.
We chose from the DineLA menu. The wait service was friendly and attentive. Jar’s signature dish—pot roast—has been lauded in reviews as delicious and oh so tender. The roast served to us was neither particularly tasty nor fork tender (a knife was needed to cut it). Though the salmon was moist and satisfactory, we cannot say that either dish was memorable. The best item from that limited menu was the chocolate sundae. Very tasty! As in so many venues in Los Angeles, the level of noise in the room was highly intrusive, and it may have been an oversight that night regarding the pot roast, but based upon our experience, we would not be tempted to return.
The quality and personal touch of the cuisine follows the reputation and exceptional reviews given to Executive Chef Suzanne Tracht’s retro style dishes. The service added a personal touch and made one comfortable in the dining. The selections are unique and proud enough to please many different taste buds. The side dishes are a great themselves.
We went to Jar for dineLA. The restaurant is a smaller space, so there is an intimate feeling. However, it’s very loud, and even though we were sitting at a table for two, it was hard to hear each other. The service was great, our waitress was very attentive. The food was delicious, as was the wine. I would highly recommend their signature pot roast. On the downside, this is not a place where you can have an actual conversation with the person/people you are with because, like I said, it’s extremely loud.
The restaurant has a nice clean. The flow of getting guest in and out worked well. The service was on the slow side today however from what I hear it is an isolated instance. The food was great. I had the filet with lobster bernaise and it melted in my mouth. Started off with a half dozen oyster which had a Ponzu sauce that had a bright crisp taste. For dessert I had the butterscotch pudding that was think rich and tasted smooth as velvet. Overall good experience and will come back again.
We have been customers since Jar opened and are always very happy with our meals. Suzanne does an amazing job and the food, service, and ambience are always top-notch. I can't recommend Jar highly enough as I've had special occasions and last-minute meals with friends and always leave happy. It's so nice to see an institution like this survive and thrive in today's culinary world.
