Veteran James Beard Award Winning New York City Restaurateur Chris Cannon (Marea, Alto, Convivio, Osteria Morini) opened Jockey Hollow Bar & Kitchen, his convivial, multi-concept restaurant, bar and event space in Morristown, New Jersey in October of 2014.

Located at the historic Vail Mansion, Cannon’s JHBK is composed of four distinct spaces, each with a unique food and beverage element. With inspiration stemming from the property’s elegance and unique history, the mansion houses a collection of contemporary artwork, many of which were commissioned exclusively for the project.

    I found this restaurant online and was very excited to share with my friend. We needed a middle point location to meet after work for dinner so this seemed like the perfect happy hour and dinner spot to wind down and catch up! When we arrived (6:45pm), the hostess was very sweet. We decided to sit by the bar and order. The bartenders consistently avoided contact. Did not greet us and mind you there was no one else sitting at the bar at that time. They chatted among themselves regardless of how many times we kept trying to get their attention…after the wait of grabbing their attention, drinks & food took a bit long to receive but that’s expected. Once we got our food, we decided to add another app dish from the menu because we were still hungry and was told that kitchen closes soon as a warning… It was just very odd experience and I would never go back because it felt like I was interrupting the bartenders to actually work…

    Me and my husband when there for Sunday brunch to celebrate our anniversary, the waiter was very friendly food was fresh and very tasty. The only thing that was a little weird to us is when we entered the restaurant hostesses had a dirty look at first as we came in too early or we are not supposed to be there, but we did show up in time at 12:30pm and we had good attitude and we were very excited to start our special day in your restaurant. When we left hostesses did not say bye and were talking to each other. Overall the experience was very nice and we enjoyed our time there. Again the waiter was on top of things, he knew when to come and offer another drink or ask us how do we like our dishes.

    Still the best restaurant in Morristown. Steak & eggs… steak was excellent, perfect and large. Drinks per expertly made. Oyster Bar dining room is high end. Staff is all friendly, engaging and hospitable. No restaurant groupies here like another on the green. JH continues his place as best in Morristown.

    This was out first time for dinner here - ate upstairs in the dining room. Food and service were both excellent. Had a really nice time. The bar situation is somewhat disappointing and confusing. For the "Oyster Bar" room - you must make a reservation, even if you just want to sit at the bar and have a drink before dinner. The back bar is smaller and more crowded - we were unable to get a seat and enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail. There is a downstairs bar as well, but its standing room only and its a small bar in a big room. Has a 90's club scene vibe to it.

    Dining at Jockey Hollow exemplifies how quality ingredients like tangles of slaw, topped with grilled lemons and Southern worthy baby fried chicken would raise the bar….elegance and subtlety. Derrick selected a bottle of Austrian Chardonnay that spoke clearly to the coins of local scallops. It was ethereal dining in Morristown…. Carefully prepared with love.

    Jockey Hollow is one of the few local restaurants that really cares about the food they serve and how it is prepared and presented. The staff is excellent, from the person who helped secure our wobbly table, to the one who was highly knowledgable of the restaurant's wines, and our highly attentive waitperson. Everyone was inviting and friendly. Thank you Chris Cannon for sweating the details so we know we will have a wonderful evening. We always enjoyed your COVID Zoom wine tastings! JH may be our new weekly Friday night out.

    Friendly host showed us to our table promptly. A few times servers brought another table’s food to us before we had even ordered! It’s a beautiful space, fun vibe. Food was delicious, I had mushroom risotto and my husband had arctic char. Service was sporadic, very attentive at first and then had to flag the server down for more water. Overall really enjoyed the meal and recommend for a fun dinner

    It was very nice to discover this place. We dined upstairs. The service & food were very good. (My steak was ordered for medium temperature but came out rare, so be mindful when ordering…) The cheddar biscuit app was awesome (one is good enough for two people!). Enjoy!

    If you're coming on a Saturday, get here early. There was no available parking onsite, so we had to drive around to find a spot. Once we were did, we were greeted by a kind host and a gorgeous sweeping staircase up to an intimate room where we ate. Beautiful setting. Good ambience. After two tasty cocktails, my wife and I split three courses. Our tuna starter was very good. The lobster tagliatelle was delicious (and pasta perfectly cooked), although it could've used a little black pepper or peperoncini to cut the creaminess. Our entree, Steak & Frites, was pretty disappointing. The steak was small, maybe 4-5 oz, and of the five slices, two were so sinewy that I struggled to cut them with my steak knife, so we declined to eat them. Preferred not to spend the end of our evening chomping for ten minutes on chewy steak. The fries were extremely salty, and the steak was underseasoned. The cheesecake, which had a decent flavor, was very burned. The crust was black in places, as though it had been left in the oven for 5-10 minutes too long. Service was good, and everyone was very pleasant, although we were mildly hoping that the steak would be taken off the check since we were only able to eat half of it, but it wasn't. Not sure we'll be back, but if we do come back, we'll definitely be ordering something else.

    Food was good but not great. Everything was just average, food, drink, service. Nothing to warrant the high price point. We have had much better at restaurants like Addams Tavern in Westfield or Publick House in Mountainside . Glad we tried it, but won’t be retuning.

    Reservation seating requires some attention, doesn’t make sense to sit every incoming guest on top of each other in an empty dining room. Food was good but value is questionable. The cocktails are definitely worth it! Was expecting something a little more…

    This time, we came to enjoy dinner prior to a show at MPAC with my 13 year old nephew. Once again, we asked to be seated up in the Washington Room for our second time and, we asked if we could be placed wherever Liv was working this evening. To our delight, not only did the management grant our request, they even moved Liv up to the Washington Room so she could be our server. As I stated in a past review, what made this visit above and beyond amazing was the truly sweetest server we have ever come across in years. Liv was just as delightful as our last visit and always had a smile. She continued to be just as attentive as our fist visit and still very knowledgeable of the menu. As we dined, I watched how she interacted with the rest of the staff and patrons and, I was truly amazed by how she was choreographing, a beautiful ballet as she guided the staff she was working with and never missed a beat of the attention to detail she gave use as well as the other patrons. Olivia was also super sweet in how she even included my nephew into the conversations. Thank you Liv (Olivia), for making our evening, yet again, the best it could possibly have been. You are a shining star at Jockey Hollow and you are a beautiful soul who we will “always” ask for when we visit again.”

    I've dined at Jockey Hollow many times, but it seems like there might be a new chef that has definitely made it better! The new menu is varied but not too broad with so many good choices. The food was fantastic! I do wish they would just automatically bring back the printed menus vs using the QR code. Highly recommended!

    It was strange that we couldn’t order appetizers and drinks first but we’re told we must order everything at once. Then 5-10 minutes later we could. Anyhow we left after that had something come up but we will possibly give it another chance another day perhaps.

    Forgive me if this comes across as being pompous however, my wife and I go out to dinner often and enjoy this greatly. Over the years we have had wonderful food, seen amazing decor and had great service. And, we have also at times, had the complete opposite experience. However, every time we go to Jockey Hollow, we have received a wonderful meal, good cocktails, and had good service. This is what has had us coming back from time to time. This time, we were seated up in the Washington Room for the first time and we were delighted by the decor & menu choices. But, what made this visit above and beyond amazing was the truly sweetest server we have ever come across in years. She was delightful, always had a smile, attentive, and very knowledgeable of the menu. This server has caused us to move Jockey Hollow up our list to one of the top destinations for us to go to for an amazing dinner. Thank you Liv (Olivia), for making our evening the best it could possibly have been. You are a shining star at Jockey Hollow and you are a beautiful soul who we will “always” ask for when we visit again.
