Food and service were amazing. I have Celiac and they accommodated me with no problem. It was our anniversary and the staff at Jema helped make it special.

We arrived and had a drink at the bar, they don’t carry grey goose (even though the bartender says they are constantly asked for it and agreed they should have it) but the cocktail I had was delicious and the bartenders were very friendly we enjoyed that. We finished our drinks and sat for dinner. This was where things went bad. We ordered wine from a menu of unknown bottles. The red was great but the white bottle was disgusting to the point of not being drinkable. We refused the bottle initially when poured for tasting but the manager came over to arrogantly tell us that we own that bottle and are unable to refuse it. We let him know that we planned on buying other bottles and this one was unanimously not a good wine. He again refused and said that they wouldn’t be able to accommodate our request. Ok. I drank the red instead and my friend unsuccessfully tried to drink the $80 bottle of white. We’ve never turned back a wine and this wasn’t just bad it was disgusting. Acidic and bitter, could have been the bottle but he wasn’t hearing it either way. We decided to make the best of the night and ordered a few appetizers. The oysters came and our request for cocktail sauce was denied bc they don’t serve that but adding that they get that request a lot also. The grilled octopus was tough but the mushrooms tartlets were decent. Our dinners arrived next. The short ribs were smoky in flavor as described but absolutely tasteless otherwise. I honestly could have been eating firewood it was that smoky. The squid ink pasta was terrible, our friend said it was practically inedible and the strip-loin ok but nothing special. I’d like to add that the waitress was a doll and we even laughed that we would love to get her a job at another restaurant bc as great as she was we would not be returning to this restaurant. Overall the experience lacked everything that makes a restaurant desirable and enjoyable. Don’t waste your time or money.

I would return because food good though I have had similar fare at other high end restaurants. Obvious care and detail went into the food and the execution was first rate. My only complaint was the overzealousness of the wait staff which was a disconnect from the quiet, sophisticated ambience. As a former waitress, I know wait staff cannot win: too enthusiastic, not attentive enough. Our waitress was good but I would have liked her to tone it down a bit.

Trying to be a Michelin but far from it. Highly mediocre, flavorless food and extremely overpriced. Excellent service and friendly staff. though.

Thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Jema's. We received a warm greeting when we arrived. The warmth we extended to all staff we experienced: hostess, bartender, server, and management. We were a party of six. All of us felt Jema's food was truly among the best we've had anywhere, form New York City to the Hampton's. You could feel and taste the care that went into each plate served. I absolutely love Octopus, aka Pulpo. Yes, many serve it, but not well. Jema's Octopus excelled. Tender on the inside, just enough char from the grill on the outside.
I highly recommend dining here!

Classy and contemporary - a style few succeed at!

We've been to Jema many times and it never disappoints. From the time Victoria welcomes us by name until she hands us our leftovers as we depart, it's a non-stop five star experience. The menu changes periodically but doesn't "try too hard" to be unique. On this trip I had the mushroom tart and the grilled octopus - both are simply amazing. If you like fruity cosmo-type drinks try a Joy-de-vivre (named after owner Joy Mangano) - very well done cocktail.

This will not be an inexpensive evening, but you're guaranteed an excellent meal with excellent service. By far the best food AND best service anywhere in the Huntington area!
