Simple strait forward food. Kind of classic. Lots of beef, steak, pork chop choices. Signature dish is there pot roast. Always a few fish choices. Great cocktails. Nice wine by the glass choices. Wait staff always attentive. Maybe the deserts could be improved somewhat. I always enjoy going there.

Went for the pot roast- it was tasty but a pretty small portion. General feeling was the place was overrated.

Top tier steakhouse. Unpretentious food at the highest quality. Much better deal and much less of a hassle than ‘sexier’ options like Craft, Cut and Boa.

Food at jar is great. I’m beyond inside dining room is very stale no vibe. They’re outside patio which is new post Covid is where the ambience is. Outside patio requires a weight even with reservation. Worth the wait. Service staff at jar is great very professional very knowledgeable. This is to be expected. Prices are very high for what’s on plate BUT it is cooked beautifully.
Their signature is the Pot Roast or Pork Chop. Cocktails are fantastic. Full bar and can make anything.

Arrived 7pm, reservation was for 7:30 went in for drinks. At 7:45 was told another half hour wait but the hostess pointed out which table would be ours. Went back to the bar, came out again and people were starting to sit at our table. Found hostess and she said they just sat down..how did that happen! I made them move with the hostess helping me. One of the people in our party was diabetic and needed to get dinner going. It's now around 8:20 p.m. Waiter was sweet but overwhelmed. Service was awful. Orderd diet cokes...flat...they brought out bottled ones and they were fine. Squash Blossoms were over done, deviled eggs had barley any crab on top, no flavor ... Creamed spinach was horrible. Creamed corn and fried rice were good as was the pork chop. The soft shelled crab was was good as was the pot roast. The special fish of the day was very simple..not even a lemon wedge to help it out. Not much flavor. The butterscotch desert was really salty (and we all love salt!)and the cappuccino and espressos were cold. Had not been to Jar in a long time and am very sad how badly it was run and how mediocre the food was.

Had 7:15 reservation. Kept us standing on cement for 45 minutes until a table opened at 9. Hostess disappeared so we sat ourselves. Waiter is telling us specials and hostess comes to table with two customers who demand we get up because they want that table. Rather than making more of a scene we got up and went to another table. Jar never apologized, never sent a drink or dessert over. Very unpleasant experience. We would never go back.

great service and room was pleasant, however the food was mostly somewhat lackluster and apart from one side dish (purple yams) which was very good, the rest somehow seemed like it had just been re-heated in microwave. also had to add salt to a couple of dishes. bread was very good but butter was too hard to spread. carrot cake was too cold, so had not not out of fridge for long enough. overall not much flavor to the food, needs some more thought. generally we felt that more preparation is needed.

The food was good but a little overpriced. We all had different entrees in our party of 4 which we all tasted. On a scale of 1-5, 5 being best, we rated as follows; Chicken Schnitzel 5, Coq a vin 4, Pot roast 5, halibut (a special) 3.5 mainly due to the price point for the portion size.

Service was outstanding, especially our server Andre. Appetizers were excellent as well. We will come back as the overall experience was very good.

The meal would have been wonderful if it was not soo slow. We were there for over two hours and did not have dessert. It was close to 45 minutes between appetizers and the main course and the hostess only came to our table to explain the delay after we complained. Apparently the delay is that “something got messed up in the kitchen”. They did not offer to bring us anything (like bread) or even comp a dessert for the inconvenience. For a restaurant with a great and long reputation I would have anticipated a better experience.

So incredibly disappointing. We were really looking forward to their “specialty” — the pot roast — but it was bland with a tasteless watery broth. The salmon was dry and flakey while being a little undercooked (we couldn’t figure out how they managed that) and devoid of taste. I love salmon and have a better one at home weekly. Their deviled eggs were overly salty. We did enjoy our wedge salad and side of tiny yams with sour cream. Service was… well, we’ll assume understaffed due to Covid. We had to cancel wine after the first 2 bottles we ordered were not available and waiter didn’t bother to inform us quickly. We’d made it clear as soon as we sat down the wine was a priority because we tried to order a bottle from the list on their full menu on Open Table. But that wasn’t on the in-person list. Waiter said he understood priority of our wine order, but then really didn’t. We were already done with appetizer and salad before he informed us regarding our second (third) choice and then goofily didn’t have the wine list with him to quickly remedy it. But it was now 30 minutes after we’d sat down, and we already were off to a bad night so we canceled the wine after noting we’d wanted our wine before our meal. Waiter barely apologized before grabbing the wine glasses off the table like it was our fault. Manager came over, indifferent at first, but finally offered us a glass of wine. We took that as consolation and decided to chalk the evening up as a loss. There are SO many better (good) restaurants for less money in LA. After $150 with no bottle of wine or dessert, with two of our worst entrees in LA, we felt ripped off. Pass on this place until someone you know personally guarantees things are better post Covid. We can excuse slow service a little these days but not mediocre food.

And as always my favorite iceberg lettuce wedge is my favorite. The hostesses are so accommodating with seating and we had an extra special treat to meet Chef and Owner Suzanne Tracht! ❤️
