    Waiter seems untrained. After taking order, he didn't retrieve the menus and just left all of them on our table. It's quite unacceptable for a upscale restaurant.

    Adam, our server, was well informed and personable, and assisted us in making excellent food selections. Based on the outstanding presentation and unique flavors of all that we had, it's doubtful that anything on the menu would not be similarly pleasurable. Nevertheless, I strongly encourage trying the scallop motoyaki and Applewood smoked duck, which both stood out! We will certainly return to sample more from Jess' interesting menu.

    This was a good find for lunch. Will come again. We had the table near the window which the waitstaff noted was a bit quieter, than further into the restaurant. It's a pretty restaurant, with enjoyable food and pleasant and (appropriately) attentive and thoughtful servers. We shared the wild mushroom linguine and the sliders. Both were delish. Oh, and DO check out the bathroom. It's spectacular.

    Date night- we were able to choose a quiet table by the window- away from music speakers! The service was very personnel and the ambience and decor was beautiful! The dishes were very tasty and presented well! The bathrooms were unbelievably shiny and large! All the crystals , lighting , velvety seating smooth surfaces and combination of textures and colours was exciting and dazzling! We will for sure be coming back soon! Joanna and Selene were so caring and attentive… ❤️ 🙌 Thank you. Suelina and Larry

    Would highly recommend this place for a date night. The cocktails were fun, the food was excellent and so was the service. Apparently the desserts are made by a Michelin star pastry chef. We tried their macarons and they were delicious.

    Thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful night at the beautiful Jess' Restaurant. First thing I noticed when I walked in was the interior decor, furniture and lighting. Service was beyond exceptional which made for a very enjoyable evening. My friend and I ordered a dozen oysters (local and premium), dungeness crab salad and grilled octopus. We loved it. Wine selection was great. Will definitely go back for happy hour and high tea some time.

    First time there, service was great. Food prices were somewhat more than the dishes would normally command. Charcuterie board basically Safeway cheeses and meats and very average. Nice wine list.

    Nice place, and food was just ok. We have a lot of good food in Vancouver. For that price we have a lot better choices. By no means was the food bad. It just was something I could find at any cafe and bistro for 1/2 the price. Presentation was nice and the staff were very nice.

    Took husband and three kids to the Resturant. We are very impressed with the cleanliness, the service and the food presentation. Their high chair is the cleanest high chair I ever seen. Food came fast and tasty. The home made macaroons are bigger than normal size, lightly sweeten and has creamy fillings. Truffle fries is a must order.
