Was extremely disappointed in the chocolate cake offered during resturant week. I was looking forward to it and it was not up to par for a high quality dining establishment.
Went during restaurant week. 4 of us. 10 minutes for water and 10 minutes for first round of drinks. Place was only half full. I politely inquired with the manager and she made me feel like I insulted her. Our waiter did apologize and was friendly. They don’t validate parking, no biggie, but they blamed on the fees. Food was just fair. Doubt we will go again, too many other choices.
We decided to try out the Jacobsen during Restaurant Week and were pleasantly surprised with our visit. It can be difficult to find restaurants who clearly label their gluten free foods and have gluten free options. The Jacobsen has Vegan and Gluten Free items labeled on their menu (including dessert!). The Restaurant Week meals were good, we also ordered from the regular menu and were very happy with our selection. Staff was friendly and chatty. Parking can be rough down in the Crossroads.
We were celebrating my moms birthday and forgot about the Saturday brunch crowd. It was a bit loud for our outing but I would recommend it for folks looking to have a fun Saturday brunch. The service was great and the food was also good.
Visited for lunch during Restaurant Week and the visit was only average. Courses were oddly all served at once, which meant cold food.
We ordered off the restaurant week menu since that’s what brought us in. We shared the salmon crostini, which was excellent and the hummus, which was fine but nothing too special! We both ordered the bourbon glazed salmon. My husband thought it was good but for me it just wasn’t what I was expecting I guess. The roasted vegetables with it were quite good. Nothing on the dessert menu struck out fancy so we ordered the flourless chocolate torte and it was almost as dry as the old school chocolate cake that came as one of the pre fix menu desserts. So the food was okay, but we had great service-which has become hard to find in this city. We also saw lots of other items on the regular menu that peaked our interest and intend to return to check those out sometime in the future!
Thoroughly enjoyed menu items off of the Restaurant Week menu. Waiter, Jed, was great—knew menu well and gave an overview of everything on the special menu. Also, made wine and cocktail recommendations. Great time had by all in our party.
We came for restaurant week lunch and enjoyed it very much. The food is always excellent and the service is the best.
Went during restaurant week. It was slammed. Loud! The food is good and tastes fresh. The champagne (Brut) we were served was flat. We didn't say anything cause it was so busy and our waiter seemed like the type of person to get angry if we said anything negative. We will return for the food. The space is dark and warm (good ombionce) for after work drinks/happy hour. Could be a good date place.
We've eaten here many times, and enjoyed it every time.
A work colleague and I went to The Jacobson for the first time during KC Restaurant Week for lunch. We made a reservation, and I'm so glad we did! They were very busy. Sat at a high top table, and had our waiter stop by as soon as we were seated. Rick did a fantastic job, and really made us feel welcomed. He checked in throughout our meal (not too frequently or too infrequently!), and he's very charming.
Food was delicious - we both recommend the Caprese salad and the butterscotch pudding for dessert.
We will be going back in February for the envelope promotion. We will also be sure to ask for Rick again!
I ate lunch with some coworkers during KC restaurant week. There's a fixed menu for $15. It was definitely worth the money. Looking at the menu, the prices are a bit high. But the food was phenomenal. Between us, we had pork confit, Nashville Chicken, caprese salad, salted butterscotch pudding (to die for). There's a great patio (which we did not sit at since its January). Great vibe inside with jazz music. Friendly staff. I would recommend.
Our service was spectacular. Jed was our server and shared all kinds of fun trivia about the building's history and its ties to Harry Truman. He was very responsive and attentive to our needs to be finished by a certain time. We will absolutely go back.
The food was delicious and we will definitely be going back.
Amazing food and cool location
The food was delicious. We’ll definitely go again.
Pleasantly surprised with this pick for restaurant week. Had been here once before years ago, forgot the experience, decided to give it another go. Honestly one of the best dining experiences my boyfriend and I have encountered in Kansas City. Will be going back to give their traditional menu a try.
Cash was our waiter and he was outstanding! He had perfect timing on entering our meals and always filled our waters and wine glasses right when we needed a refill. The food was also outstanding. Definitely will be coming back!
Service good and got to try it for restaurant week, did the wine offerings. Food was good server attentive, be advised it is all ala carte. I let the server choose my wine pairings and it was good as well as flexible in the fact that I don’t appreciate sweet wines which he acknowledged and adjusted to a more dry red vintage.
great food and a nice hidden gem. parking is a bit difficult - but its worth the extra work
Great food, but very much a bar so kind of loud.
Jacobson's never disappoints. Love the shitake mushrooms. And the drinks are divine. We ate for three hours and never felt rushed. Time flew by and we had a great dinner.
Loved the food, the atmosphere and the service! I got the bourbon salmon which was the perfect Saturday night meal!
Yes, it was NYE, but we have been to The J so many times and never had a poor experience with service. Our server just couldn’t seem to get it together. We were there 57 minutes before our dinner order was taken. We could see the server as he entered orders into the computer, and it took him like 3-4 times as long as anyone else. Crazy! When we asked questions about something on the menu, he just read what was written on the menu verbatim. I’d like to think he was just having an off night, but I have to think the guy was in the wrong field. The food was outstanding, as usual (trio of spreads, beet salad, seafood with risotto dish, and Mac ‘n Cheez with Hot Chicken). Actually, The breading on the fried chicken was not fresh / not crispy, but that was really the only complaint from a culinary standpoint.
Went for new years - it was so fun! I'd go back, for sure.
The food was excellent however; our server seem to forgot about us after a while and we were seated in a little table all the way in a corner with poor lighting. Our table was also next to the exit door which people felt necessary to use; letting in the cold air.
We were seated in the new back room and I loved the more intimate feel. They did a great job on the remodel. The service was spectacular, both happy and helpful. Thanks again!
We came for brunch and the food was outstanding! We are already planning our next trip back. And our server, Jonathan, was awesome too!
We love the Jacobson’s menu and ambience. Our waiter
Jed waited on the four of us. He was fantastic! He made some great suggestions and was also honest with his answers. The ambiance was festive and the food was worth the wait. We will definitely be back.
Never had a bad meal here. Everything was fantastic. Parking can be a little annoying but the food and ambiance were amazing.
Enjoyed our first time at the Jacobson. Friendly staff and delicious food. Half price wine bottles on Wednesday made it even better!
The food was mediocre, disappointing for the price. I ordered the Jac breakfast: crispy potatoes were greasy, the rest of my plate was cold, my eggs were over cooked yet still cold, but we’d waited so long for our food (the restaurant was in no way busy) I tucked in without complaint. A friend got one of their award winning burgers, it was bland and dry. The food was just boring, not worth the cost in our opinions. However the cocktails were pretty good.
Enjoyed the food!
Our first time there -glad we went.
We’ll definitely visit again!
Worst experience ever. Service was unbelievably poor, slow and an irritated waiter. And it was not even that crowded, open tables everywhere. Staff seemed uninterested in all the patrons. We frequent many places in Crossroad area and Plaza on weekly basis. This was without a doubt the worst dining experience we have come across.
Absolute phenomenal! We had the Jacobson’s burger which has wine many award and is incredible! The truffle fries and Mediterranean veggies are awesome! Our daughter enjoyed the pork and son-n-law had the Nashville chicken which was all great’. The desserts were unbelievablely good and we can’t wait to go back!
We would highly recommend this restaurant!
Our server made a comment that there was a party next door, thus our food was coming out on various dishes because the kitchen was running low. Additionally, we're pretty certain our waiter wasn't someone who normally waits tables as there were prolonged periods of time for him to come to our table to take our order and he was rather smug. Somewhat ridiculous for a Saturday night, and we aren't "hard to please" people.
Overall - expensive meal out for horrible service and not that great of food. I'd spend your time and money elsewhere.
Always a great time and the service is amazing!
Bottomless mimosas at brunch! We had such awesome service and food was fantastic. Can’t wait to go back.
