First time back since change in ownership. Unfortunate changes in the former novelty of lamps on the ceiling and bathroom paparazzi.

Price point significantly higher, particularly on sushi and wine. Menu completely changed with less variety among choices. Service, sometimes not great under former ownership, significantly better.

Tuna tower and tuna tartare good— left us hopeful. Black Sea bass very bland. At $42, about $53 with tax and tip, definitely not on par with other restaurants at that price point. Branzino good, not great. Skirt steak, too, good, not memorable. Desserts good, not outstanding.

Overall a good restaurant, but not worth the price. Other restaurants, even among Scotto restaurants, better options. We were at One North a few months ago— similar pricing, but felt it worth the price. Under Tom Schaudel this was our go to place for occasions. Alas, no longer.

We went for dinner on the night Disco Unlimited was performing. Our dinner res was for 8:30 and the band didn’t go on until 10 so we thought they would be prepared for the crowd and have enough staff to keep the people having dinner served at the usual pace. Boy were we wrong. The service was slow to non-existent, 30 min wait for drinks, appetizers came out at 9:40! Almost 3 hrs until we got the check. For the amount of money they charge for food and $20 a drink, they shouldn’t serve dinner on a night a popular band is performing, unless they handle it and it’s just not fair to the people paying big money to eat there. Yes, it was an unusually PACKED night but they were totally unprepared/understaffed for this type of event. Also, friends said they were waiting up to 25-30 for a drink at bar.

Not liking the new club atmosphere. Couldn’t walk through the crowd to get to restroom. Finally got the restroom where a 50 year old woman must have been over served having thrown up and being held up by friends and staff. They should have called 911 to make sure she was ok. It was only 8:30 -9pm. Not the place I’d take family anymore.

VDay dinner was a blast! We were seated right when we got there even before our reservation time. The service was absolutely top notch. The server was A++++! I love when people really enjoy what they do. They all want to be there;) they all wanted to make us happy! They all made us feel loved and super special. For something like VDay dinner thats what I wanted. I am managing a team of over a 100 employees and I cant help mentioning what an impressive job Yev GM is doing. It all starts from the leader. Being a role model is the best coaching you can do! My wife said it was the best evening ever and thats all that matters. The food is outstanding here. Seafood ceviche and heart roll hit the spot. Sea bass and surf and turf were perfectly cooked. Great dessert and wine list. Will come more often!

Came here today for Valentines Day and OMG so happy we chose Jewel. They had a special menu and a special section for all couples which I thought was so cute;) It made it different and the atmosphere was so romantic! My Boo loved his seafood ceviche, the ingredients are crisp and super fresh. I have read before in reviews that they were known for the great quality fish. True! My surf and turf was delish. And i was ecstatic for their special dessert VDay Panache. Also their wine list is great if you know at least something about wine... lol Awesome evening! Great service and atmosphere. Thank you guys for our special Date!!!

These guys keep it consistent with their great service, high quality food and a great music! We came here for V Day bc we ve been here a few times and we absolutely loved everything about the place. Its 180 degrees from what it used to be before the new ownership. The staff is so well trained now, knowledgable and accommodating. The menu had some new items on it today which was great. I really enjoyed my Crab roll for appetizer and my Risotto. Also dessert was perfect. We had a great time, everything is right on spot. We had to change the time and they moved things around for us even though they were really busy. Thank you for that! 👍🏻

We were seated promptly but it took a little time for anyone came over with menus or take drink order. Seemed there was a question whose area our table was in. After that things went well service was good and attentive. Food was good and we enjoyed our time there. Will go again and would recommend it.

Ate at Jewel for the first time since Anthony Scotto took over. Love his other restaurants (Blackstone Steakhouse; Insignia; etc.), but I am not a fan of what he is doing to Jewel. While the service continues to be outstanding (Jackie the server was A+!), the menu is significantly changed. First off, one of the most popular dishes, the Lobster Risotto, has been permanently removed. This was a unique dish that drew many friends of mine (and me!) to this restaurant specifically to order it. Second, the wine menu used to be a book and is now relegated to half a page, a drastically reduced inventory. Third, the food choices, while tasty, seem to be moving in a different direction toward more Asian flare. Overall, I am truly sad to see the old Jewel slowly disappear. While I will still eat there on occasion, I am disappointed and will not be eating there nearly as frequently as I used to.

Jewel is our place to go to now because it is outstanding for the past 6 months. Since ever it was taken over by Scotto- totally a new store. The food is excellent. The drinks are great. Service is top notch. Affordable prices. Their filet mignon is right on spot. Great appetizers and salads. The menu is upgraded and they have a great chef! Their staff is efficient and welcoming. We even met the GM and he has been so accommodating each time. He lights up this place;). Coming back with my friends to celebrate one of the birthdays.

Amazing Dinner! The food is absolutely outstanding. Our burrata was so fresh and delicious. I enjoyed my sea bass. Honestly, Jewel has the best fish and sushi. Every time we come in I get sushi and it has never been a disappointment. Also their service is awesome because they are super attentive and personable with their guests. Manager cares about whats going on. I come here more so for food but the service, nice chat and their great attitude is a big bonus. Love this place and highly recommend.

My wife and I had a really good time here last weekend. Not my first time here and to be perfectly honest, did not expect much from Jewel but wanted to see what it turned out to be. It is under a new owner Scotto group, and that really shows. What a difference! First of all, greatness in food which is just Scotto;) No joke- Great menu. Best quality sushi and fish for sure. In general, the menu seems to be brand new and the chef knows what he is doing. I heard that soon ir will be fully redone and totally upgraded. Also, we loved their cocktails. But what we enjoyed the most was the vibe we got from their staff. Waitress was so knowledgeable and pleasant. Then GM stopped by and welcomed us. Nice gesture. They were all so nice that we ended up staying much longer than planned bc the music was awesome. We had an amazing time! Thank you Yev and your team. Keep up the great job Guys.
