Jonathan's The Rub
The food & service could not have been better. Our server was friendly, helpful & attentive.
We took our leftovers home because we wanted to enjoy our delicious food one more time.
Our reservation was for 8:00 pm for outdoor seating but we couldn’t get our table until almost 8:20 pm since the people at the table would not leave. Not the fault of Jonathan’s staff but felt that someone needs to make notice to the people who are just sitting and visiting while people wait.
An old standby for casual get togethers. Bring your own wine for a minimal corkage fee. Comfortable but casual seating area. Food is better than average and for a decent value. Service is outstanding but not bothersome.
After staying away for too long, we had a corner table for four outside. The servers all introduced themselves to us, as a team. Bottles were opened, drinks poured, orders taken - all timed impeccably. There are so many great things on the menu - it was difficult to choose. We all chose well and the food was superb.
Service was fair. Even with 2 servers, food did not come at the same time. Parmesan crusted pork tenderloin was not what I expected. Won’t order that again.
Food is great! American and Italian. Very consistent. Everything I have tried has been off the charts. Desert is not to be missed!
As always, everything was delicious. Topped off with the best coconut cream pie anywhere!
Food and service was wonderful as usual! We had a couple of parties of 10 sitting in the same room so the noise was a bit more than usual. The wait person asked if it was too loud and could move if desired. Specials of seafood were outstanding and the portions typical Texas size! Will go back!
Everything is great at this restaurant!!! We love the mussels, customer service!
Had a lovely dinner on the patio. Crab cakes, meatballs Caesar salad, filet, chicken piccata and loaded mash. All were delicious. Service was good though we did wait about 10 minutes for someone to come collect our payment when we were finished with our meal. Otherwise a very positive dining experience.
Jonathon's has been one of my favorites for several years. It is still as good as it was the first time I went . Food is great and the service is wonderful Very friendly staff
Food was excellent. Service was awful. Next time will order and pick up as the car orders got better attention than we did.
Scallops were great and so was the service! Desserts were also excellent
Had a great dinner but with one exception. We each started out with a small salad - two house salads and one caesar. The salads were relatively larger than most "starter salads", and the lettuce and other vegetables were fresh. I had the Denver Roast, which is like a "pot roast". The beef was braised and fell off the bone, and had a wonderful flavor with small amount of carrots and onions. It was delicious. One person had the Chilean seabass broiled with panko breadcrumbs. It was a huge piece of seabass which was cooked perfectly. It was fresh and really tasty. The one dish we were a little disappointed with was the prime rib. We are use to prime rib served on the bone and roasted. This piece of meat was almost like a sirloin steak. It was grilled rather than roasted. It was flavorful but not what we had expected. We ended with a piece the coconut cream pie, which looked like it twas homemade and had a wonderful flavor.
We dined on the patio and were seated social distanced apart, the wait staff were very respectful of cleanliness and safety. We felt very comfortable. It was a wonder dinner and you won't be disappointed if you dine at this restaurant. We'll definitely return soon.
My food was delicious. Love the steak, brussel sprouts, meat balls, and cheese cake Great customer service.
Very romantic. BYO wine. Both appetizers came out cold but food was very delicious. I would go back again!
I’m very disappointed I recommend this restaurant to celebrated my friends bday, my friend chicken Was Frozen in the middle and til long to bring it back correctly ! My other friend’s Chicken Piccata was super salty, overall service was mediocre this time, they were super busy, no social distance !!!
Thankfully, this neighborhood favorite seems to have survived COVID.
We started with the crabcakes, which were delightful, and the pepper-crusted pork tenderloin was absolutely delicious. We finished with the snickers pie, which I would definitely order again. It was the best meal I've had in months!
Always excellent. Friendly staff. Food is sooo good and beautifully presented. This is a favorite.
The wait staff recommended the sea bass and I took their advice. It was amazing! I highly recommend it.
i'm always pleased to lunch at Jonathan's rub. it was a special treat to still have restaurant week there during our reservation. The food is always and consistently good! i've never had any problems during the many times i've dined there. it's a great place to bring clients as well as celebrate a special occasion. i recommend the sea bass or the chicken fried steak!
We have been there before and had good experiences, but this last visit was mostly disappointing. The food was a mixed bag and the service was poor. The team approach by the waiters resulted in nobody bringing our water or dessert until we asked.
Absolutely amazing! The food was excellent and the service was perfect!
Food was great. My only complaint is the atmosphere and cleanliness, very run down and dingy. The booth we sat in had stains on it and my tea glass had a lot of mineral build up on it.
Food was excellent. We had crab cakes, Denver Roast and potstickers. All were great. BYOB fee is less now - $12.00 a bottle.
Great place for dinner with a group of friends! Loved the food, service was great!
Went to celebrate 2 birthdays. Wrote in reservation note and mentioned before we were seated, they did nothing to acknowledge it. Waited 30 min after everyone else got their salads, to get my meatball appetizer...which was COLD in the middle. They do not serve any complimentary bread with entrees. The serving "teams" don't seem to communicate with each other. My bread pudding dessert was barely warm. And the tables were close together...no social distancing observed.
Best brined 16oz Pork Chop in Houston TX! Would recommend Jonathon’s any day!
We've been dining at the original Jonathan's for years, ever since they opened in a quiet, unpretentious Memorial area location. The ambience is also quiet and unpretentious. It is our go-to place also for business friends as well as family. The food is excellent and the portions large! They serve only top-quality food: If a supplier delivers something that does not meet Jonathan's standards, Jonathan refuses that order. The cooks have been with him from the beginning, and they smile genuinely while they're cooking. (We always choose a table right by the kitchen, for the "experience." ) The waitstaff also are friendly and prompt. We very much like the team approach: All the waiters pay attention and are quick to meet the needs of any table. What more can I say?! Jonathan's The Rub is a great place!
We've heard lots of good things about JTR for a while now but never had the chance to go. However we just recently moved into the area so had to make the trip here, and it was so worth it. The service and food were wonderful. Everything we ordered was perfectly cooked and seasoned, and the portions were very generous. I'd definitely recommend the lamb chops and fish dishes. Try to save room for desserts too because it's worth it. We had the chocolate blackout cake; and it looked like a brick of dense chocolate when it came out, but the cake was surprisingly light, airy and delicious.
Food was great, people where very sweet. Wait was a little long, but it was restaurant week so completely understandable.
Food and service were good. Sat outside, so it was hot.
Went to a special birthday lunch and when I arrived they didn’t have my reservation. Seating wasn’t a problem, but the assigned the seat at the table as to how we could face each due to the spacing tile. We were placed so we faced the wall, and not look out into the restaurant. Super disappointed. Service was slow. Food amazing. The lost reservation and seating assignments really was annoying and took away from what was to be a special lunch.
Enjoyed a Restaurant Week lunch with my wife.
Food was good but entree was room temperature
First time here . Went for HRW . Table was in a fairly warm room but it was hot outside so I’m sure it’s hard to keep the place cool . Our food was great and service was good but nothing to write about . The lady waitress was nice but never told us her name and she seem to be in a hurry every time she came by our table . I would come back again and would definitely tell my friends to stop by . I don’t event think they asked me about my reservation that I made on Open table .
My date had been to the other Jonathan's the Rub and was a bit disappointed with the appearance of this location. Nonetheless, the excellent food and wine won her over.
Great Service!!! Great Food!!!
Went with friends and had an enjoyable experience
The food was delicious, the portions was large, the service was great! We look forward to the next time.
We ordered from the HRW menu. It was the best - the atmosphere is always great not rushed. The burgers are just the best and the the sides are as well. It was a wonderful meal. Enjoyed by all.
