    We had a reservation at 7pm. When we got there, we waited for 10 for anyone to acknowledge us. When we got seated, there were only two other tables being served. It took forever, with one serve to get anything. After the other two tables left, the staff was cleaning and practically closing up shop while we were eating. They turned the music off, and were hollering to each other in the back! Food was over priced, portions small, and service terrible!!! Would not recommend!!!

    Mr and Mrs Lang***, I have reviewed the events of that evening and want to assure you I have taken steps to prevent that situation from happening again. It appears we had a staff member that did not meet our standards. We have held a staff meeting regarding your dining experience as well as another unfortunate one recently related to yours. We want to offer a sincere apology as the service you received does not exemplify the standards of our restaurant. I would love to offer you a dinner experience worth writing a positive review about on us. We hope you will be able to give us another chance to show you the rest of us genuinely care.

    It was an enjoyable evening; I missed out on the ribeye I was looking forward to, due to later than normal 7:45pm seating...will remember to reserve an earlier table to partake in full menu selection next time. Our server was wonderful...salmon was scrumptious!

    We were the last table of 2 served for the evening. The waiter was way too casual in his appearance and lacked professionalism. He was very distracted with his closing duties rather than pay attention to our table. The drinks came out separately nearing 10 minutes in between, along with the appetizers and 2 glasses of wine that were not served together at the same time. All around frustrating experience and I regret choosing this restaurant for a special birthday celebration.

    Service was wonderful! Food was voted as ok to good for our group of five. A variety of appetizers, soup, salads and main courses were ordered. Nothing stood out as absolutely amazing, yet nothing was inedible or terrible. Overall a nice experience, but nothing we are eager to hurry back to.

    Salmon was $42, and a tiny portion that was dry and over cooked, the risotto with 3 prawns was not worth the price, the shrimp were cold and chewy. I was very disappointed in the meal quality at the price point we paid.

    Unfortunately, when we arrived, the menu was about 1/4 the size of the menu that was listed on OpenTable. The signature dish of elk medallion was not even on the menu and they were out of the one and only chicken dish that was on the menu. All entrées seem to come with the same rich and heavy mashed Parmesan cheese potatoes.

    Service was one maybe two stars. Not welcoming atmosphere at all. When we asked host for a table in a corner she said that it will take longer if you would like to choose that table cause it’s to far for us to get service there. We got our main coarse first and they forgot to put order in for the salads Very unprofessional I just hope that owner of that restaurant knows what’s going on there. I’m sure if he observed what happened there he wouldn’t be too happy who he hired One thing we can say that was great is chef he is doing a great job

    We had good food and fine service. We got there at 5, opening time, with a reservation. We go early so we can miss the crowds. The only thing that I disagreed with was how they seated us and the other two parties that came in, all close to the same time. The restaurant was empty and we were seated closely right next to each other. The restaurant was empty other than us. I understand seating close, maybe there was only one server, but it was a little silly. And felt like we were too close, I think the other two-tops could have felt the same.

    This restaurant is very inconsistent. We had a great meal here recently and couldn't wait to come again. We ordered the same dishes -this meal was just okay. I ordered the king salmon both times. It looked similar but not nearly as flavorful, not as well executed. Mashed potatoes were okay. Sauce maybe needed more salt or seasoning. Interestlngly, they were not that busy when we went on Saturday, the night before NYE. Our mid-week experience was much better and restaurant was busy too.

    A lovely little restaurant. Food was outstanding! I had the king salmon and it was perfectly done, with mashed potatoes Gordon Ramsey would approve of, aspargus and a sauce that just made the dish sing. Our server was excellent too. A fine dining ecperience that was total surprise to find in the area.

    Food was good. The service was subpar. There for anniversary. Asked if we wanted some Prosecco to celebrate as we were seated. Never received it. Took a long time to get drinks when ordered. Wife asked for water 2-3 times. Server never bought any or checked on us. Table beside us was provided water without asking and then server turned back and walked away. We were there for 2 hours, long waits between salad and entree. Long wait for dessert. Long waits for drinks. Oh. Was offered Prosecco again while signing the check. No thank you.

    The food was good, but not as incredible as we've come to expect at jackalope. The reason we will not return is the service. Smacking plates down on table, like it's a diner. Not listening, arguing with us about our requests. So off putting and rude.

    Had a delicious dinner. Food was thoughtfully prepared and portions were just right. Have not had escargot for a long time, so went with that as a split appetizer. It was delicious. The Scallops (added 2 to make it an entree) and the chicken were both excellent. Had room for desert so went with the pear tart, a great way to end the meal. Good wine list and cocktail menu. Our server, Emily, was attentive but not in an overbearing way. We will definitely return when we are visiting Bend again.

    The staff and especially our server, Emily, were wonderful! Friendly and professional! I enjoyed the scallop appetizer, the winter burrata salad and the chicken entree. All three were exceptional! Dessert was a little underwhelming unfortunately. Also, my daughters salmon was a little mushy although the flavor was good. We will definitely eat here again and I will ( and have ) recommend this fine dining restaurant!

    Outstanding food, the lobster risotto was sublime. Portions were small for the price, so don't be afraid to add appetizers or a salad. Unfortunately, the problem I had was that our waiter was doing double duty as a bartender and our service was painfully slow.
