A glance at The Jacobson's variety of contemporary American cuisine yields a collection for meat lovers, vegetarians and vegans. Much like an artist who draws inspiration from his or her own environment, diners in search of muse are encouraged to mix and match tastes when ordering appetizer & entrees from the Mingle & Center Stage sections of the menu.
The Jacobson offers a seasonal, scratch kitchen, and boasts one of Kansas City's more progressive bar programs, including handmade craft and barrel-aged cocktails, and The Jacobson's original flask service.

They changed their menu, there was a buffet with premise items. Few items in buffet were actually cooked in the restaurant.
Service was a little slow based on the number of people. They also need a French Rosè on the wine list. They used to serve a good Rosè.
Excellent mother’s day brunch! My favorite dish was the chicken and waffles, so good!
We had a 7:30 reservation. When we arrived they told us that they were having an event at 9 and if we wanted to stay we’d have to pay $5. Our server was wonderful and the food was great but about 8:30 they stared flipping the restaurant into a club. We were rushing to finish our food as they turned the lights out and strobe lights were turned on and that stared blaring techno. My friend and I went to the restroom and as we headed back to our table to meet our dates the hostess confronted us and asked us if we had paid. We let her know we were leaving. It was awkward. I’d have preferred to have relaxed and not felt rushed out. Bummer experience.
Our party had a lovely dinner. Food was fantastic. A bit dark, but we adjusted. :)
We have been here before and loved it but overall our last visit was not great. Started with parking was a hassle. Next we had a reservation but they tried to seat right by the front door and restaurant was not close to being busy. Appetizer and drinks were good. Ordered the scalps - super salty. Another in the party ordered the seafood medley and got sick later that evening- they believe it was from this dish. Overall just disappointed, especially since our previous experience was really good.
Was just really over priced for the quality and portion size. The atmosphere was really nice but I reserved a table for 5 and felt crowded in the back corner at a booth for 4 with a chair pulled up for our 5th party member.
Amazing happy hour and great service as always! The Hemingway was top notch. Will be back!
Fun times and good food with friends. Good weekday out.
Food was not hot... drinks were outstanding, service and atmosphere was great.
I love the Jacobsen but this Easter brunch was awful! We had 2pm reservations and clearly we got the tail end of things! There were empty spots on the counter leading me to believe they just ran out of things. Potatoes were undercooked, green beans almondine just had clumps of almonds that were not properly cooked, scrambled eggs were large clumps...soup was just set out in a container with no heat, dessert selection was pretty sad as well. Two things, if you can’t provide a quality experience up until the last reservation then at least offer a discount or better yet don’t do a brunch! Second, offer food commensurate with what you are charging !
Had a great dining experience -- problem is that the Jacobson does not validate parking for a garage they have their name plastered on. Hostess at front was very rude asking "does the garage say 'free' parking?" The Jacobson needs to remove their name from the garage or start validating parking.
Ambiance and waitress was great. Salmon was under done and salad didn't have enough dressing. When we asked for more dressing from a separate waiter, we got a slightly dirty look like we were bothering the server with our request.
Wonderful service. Great ambience. Music selection was great and the volume allowed conversation.
They seem to always be out of items that they have on their menu such as the french dip. The serving staff is terrible. They need a full staff overhaul if they want to keep brunch clientele.
Anniversary celebration. Awesome food and cocktails
Food -- Excellent......Staff -- Professional.....great place
I was very disappointed with my visit there the other day. The service was horrible and I understand it was a busy night since it was first Friday of the month and lots of people there since it was a warm night. The first time I went there it was amazing but was really disappointed with my food and the service from the waiters bartenders and front desk people. I hope their management gets better and staffs their restaurant better especially to be prepared for busy nights. Also the food was a disappointment
I have dined at The JACOBSON several times and have never been disappointed the food and service is always great!
I would not recommend The Jacobson to anyone with their 30s in their rearview mirror. The place was SO LOUD, my friend some of it (the bread) was not even there. I could not tell if our server was tired or new; he was very slow.
Staff was excellent, from the hostess to the waiter. Shrimp and Crab Dip is to die for.
The table in front of us started getting too loud. ..we wanted to stay longer but they where doing the most today!
Have been to the jacobson many times and always love our experience. This visit was kind of disappointing. Our service was poor. The appetizer was cold. Hopefully just a fluke.
Would go back again. Once it got really busy the service got slow. Seems the wait staff was overwhelmed. It was a concert night so maybe they didn’t plan full staff like they should have.
The bartender and wait staff are very unfriendly. The floor manager was amazingly outstanding. Please eat here if you love excellent food and a staff that make you feel like you don’t deserve to be there.
The waiter had numerous issues.
He did not know how to pour wine at all. Food was good as usual.
We will be back as this is an isolated issue we are sure.
The restaurant was virtually empty yet it took forever to get service. My champagne was flat (& not cold) and we had to ask multiple times for ice, additional silverware etc. And the big bummer was that the food was just kind of bland. The Brussels sprouts were hard (not cooked) in the middle and the steak hardly had much taste. The highlight however was the Dutch Baby dessert which was DIVINE.
Everyone usually raves about the Jacobsen and i was so excited to try it. Unfortunately it didn’t wow me.
We had a great meal and the service was really good. Look forward to return.
Just discovered this jewel in the Crossroads area. Love the warm atmosphere. They have a whiskey drink named The Hemingway ....Yummy
Food and service is outstanding. You will not be disappointed.
We had heard so much about The Jacobson and was expecting something really exceptional. It was my wife’s birthday and I wanted to treat her to something extra ordinary. First let me say that parking is atrocious. Valet parking is available but that costs.
Overall The food was very good but super pricey. As an appetizer we had the “goat cheese stuffed meatballs” - nothing to get too excited about. My wife had “plank salmon” and I had “pan seared scallops” - both were very good. We also had the “Brussels sprouts” - tasted exceptional but did not set well in me or my wife.
Service was outstanding. Our server was cordial and very helpful.
Ambiance was nothing to get excited about and for the most part lighting is poor.
This is the kind of place that might appeal to the younger crowd but not for the “mature” bunch.
We will not be going back.
Delicious food.. great drinks.. reasonable prices.. waiter was friendly and knowledgeable
Overall everything was great, except our waitress who was very pushy and came off very rude and offered us our checks several times before we were even ready to leave. I usually love coming here for brunch, but this lady’s attitude toward our table really turned us off. Granted, she was training someone but her attitude definitely killed the good vibe we had going.
Would not recommend this restaurant. The coffee was cold and our standard American breakfast tasted like it was taken from a cold buffet line.
Service was poor. Was essentially abandoned by the server.
The restaurant was one of my favorites for quite awhile then seem to fall off. We decided to give it another chance and it was good. The grilled oysters could use a little more flavor but the steak with the Jacobson touch was delicious. You should try.
We always look forward to going here every single year for brunch on our anniversary. We were greeted by someone at the door who seemed put out that people were there to dine. Also, our waiter who we have had before (we had a good experience with this server before) would ask questions and then as we were answering them walk away. For us to look forward to this every year, I was let down. My husbands food came out cold. This has never happened before. At the end of our dining experience our waiter made the effort to make significant conversation. All in all, we were pretty bummed out when we left. Disappointed
Food was just OK. Server acted like he didn't want to be at work, and wasn't friendly what so ever. Talked bad about the hostess to us because she didn't give us the happy hour menu. Lights were so dark you can hardly read the menu or see to eat. Would like to maybe return in the summer to visit the patio scene. Had the baked brie, truffle fries, and stuffed meatballs. All appetizers weren't anything to rave about.
