    Portions were way too small. Very overpriced for the amount of food on the plate. Quality was 5 star and tasted very good but after spending $150 between myself and my sister buying just one alcoholic drink, we were still hungry upon leaving the restaurant. Won’t be coming back for the lack of value.

    Just delicious! We had a fabulous NYE dinner at our favorite restaurant. We ordered the entire raw bar (j/k) and enjoyed it all - the oysters are my favorite. I had a great mock tail and even kept to my health program choosing all the healthy items on the menu except for maybe the key lime! That was a perfect ending to our meal with a nice cup of coffee. My hubby enjoyed an old fashion which he said was delicious. Forest was our server - super friendly, personable and hard working. It was busy and he did a great job getting things right for the two of us. Thanks! We will be back!

    We had the Christmas Eve dinner special menu (tuna conserva, grilled squid, salad, branzino) and enjoyed it very much. Great flavors and yummy dessert (honey balls with orange rind on ricotta). Not sure if we were in a particularly dark area or if the entire restaurant is dark, but it would've been a better experience if we could've seen what we were eating!!!

    The waiter was extremely rude through out the night. We had a 8:30 reservation and there was a snow storm. The waiter must of told us 10 times that they were closing the kitchen at 9pm due to the weather. We completely understood and ordered $360 worth of food and drinks in minutes. I’ve never felt so unwelcome at a restaurant in my life. Completely rude. They should’ve just closed the restaurant than treat us they way they did. I’ve been to this restaurant hundreds of times.

    We were celebrating my son's birthday. Forest came to the table to pour water and greeted us with sincere upbeat energy. One of my sons complemented Forest on his professional yet incredible upbeat energy and he told us it was his first day. What an asset for Jax as we have been coming to JAX for many years. Jamie was our server who was outstanding and made our evening and celebration complete. She was incredible and went above and beyond to accomodate my family with our celebration. Jamie went out of her way to make sure our evening was over the top and left us with many great memories of the evening celebrating my son's birthday. Please give extra kudos to both Jamie and Forest for being so incredible to us. Just a note that the food was incredible like always except for the seafood chowder was not as good as the old recipe that we have had in the past. We would love for you to go back to the old recipe that was tastier and creamier.

    Our waitress could have not been less interested. My companions were seated and said they would wait for me as I was parking the car. I sat down and 10+ minutes passed before our waitress came to take drink orders. Salad and entrees came at the same time. The whole experience was so strange because it felt as if no one cared if we were there.
