Tony's at the J House menu offers something for everyone-- homemade pasta, fresh fish, and grilled steaks. Chef Denis' dishes take on the wonderful smokiness of our wood-fired open hearth. Vibrant salads, seasonal roasted vegetables and a revolving cheese selection round out his innovative menu. We are open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day. The J House features a live music program that infuses the dining room with a hip, modern vibe.

We thought the food was very good but the pricing is over the top. We can eat as well in other restaurants for less. The a la carte nature of the menu really pushes the prices to unacceptable levels. We have been to your previous restaurant several times with our family of 13 and have thoroughly enjoyed it. Sadly, we won’t be doing that anymore.

Tony as you would expect makes this the most upscale, casual and welcoming experience only he knows how to create. The entire staff is so respectful, helpful and first class. The food was out of this world. As fine as you can get without being stuffy! Dress up or come in your jeans. You will be treated with a warm welcome, tons of trivia and leave with a scrumptious dinner you won't soon forget! Bravo Tony! So glad you finally have your own place!

Really great experience overall. Excellent food and service. Prices are on high end due to being attached to a hotel. Had business dinner with 10 folks on a Saturday night and the place was packed. They were great with kids as well. Tony is a character. Will be back for date night. Cool live music.

Wait staff was inexperienced and inefficient I ordered a red wine (Flowers)and he brought me white Flowers but instead of apologizing and just changing it, we had to pour over the list so he could show me his bottle. We waited an exorbitant amount of time for the check. I think our waiter went home because a new waiter brought us the bill. The filleted fish was filled with bones. An unfortunate experience for our first, and probably now our last time.

We were seated right away. The waiters walked by looking at us for 10 minutes no one asked if we would like something to drink or if anyone has waited on us! Had to physically flag one of them over. They had maybe only 5 other tables, and for the price of the food, it was average nothing special! Very disappointed on a $287 tab for two people you would expect higher quality service!

The restaurant might have been a bit more quiet than usual as we were there for Thanksgiving and early...The food was perfect, the service friendly and the atmosphere warm and classic yet modern...The tiramisu was perhaps the best I’ve ever had...Highly recommend...The restaurant is under new ownership and I wish it much success...Could easily be a “go to” for a great meal any night of the week.

The restaurant has made a ton of changes, and not all for the better. We used to come here a lot because it was that rare place where you could get a good adult meal (good food, varied menu) in an environment that was both nice and reasonably family friendly (at least early in the evening). That's no longer the case. The large kids menu is gone, replaced by 2 off-menu options. The menu variety is gone, replaced by a steakhouse menu that was good, but fairly standard. There were also a lot of small changes to the environment that make it less welcoming for families. To be clear, the food was very good and the service was fine. But we definitely wouldn't come back with the kids, which makes this place go from "favorite" to "just another Greenwich restaurant." That's disappointing.

It was ENORMOUSLY disappointing. The previous restaurant was always a treat, i.e. inventive dishes, good value. Tony's was a disappointment from the moment the bread and marinara sauce arrived. The bread did not have a crispy crust but, instead, was lukewarm as though it had been heated in a microwave. (But couldn't have been because Tony said he has no microwaves in his kitchen.) The prices were exorbitant, especially for the steak, and not worth it.

Disappointing dinner at J House. I had ben there 2 times in past months - ate outside both times during warmer weather months - ambiance/service/food was much better than this past week. Service was spotty - started with water and drinks, promptly ordered table salad to start and 3 simple dinners (2 appetizers, pizza heard him saying the same thing to tables around us. Felt like constant hustle. In general food was ok, but my pasta was in a heavy stuck-together pile, not fresh individual pasta with hot sauce. Was it just re-heated?.... Music was good (live band) but be aware of the volume for conversation when they have bands, everyone is inside and outside area is closed. Best part of the evening is the Host/Maitre D' who joyously buzzes around from table to table chatting, greeting and tossing off fun trivia questions. He was fabulous!

We had made some changes to our order and it was not served correctly. 4 out of the 5 of us ordered the fish special which was very dry. Once the order was taken by the waiter he never came back to check to see if we needed anything. We enjoyed people watching but the food did not thrill us.

We had to wait 1.5 hours for our appetizers and then another hour for our main course. Major issues in the kitchen. Though they handled this major issue professionally by comping our meal they claim to be having kitchen transition issues for the next few weeks. This will have a major impact on business! The atmosphere is sleek and the menu selection is appealing. Food was awkwardly presented-- thrown hastily on plate--again a kitchen problem. Maitre D was welcoming but staff needs to have a better hold over kitchen/service coordination. Once this is worked out it will be a worthwhile reservation.

I go there a lot. This time there was a problem. The service was terrible. They did not have enough help. It took forever to get a drink and the meal. Twice I had to leave the table to find s waiter. We had two salads. For 22 dollars, I have seen a better presentation at a inexpensive place. It also tasted mediocre.

This was my 2nd time dining here within a month. The space is very lovely, inside or out. It was a beautiful night and we would have sat outside but we were told that the band was about to start playing. Now, that may be an attraction for some but the 4 of looked at each other and said, "indoors please!!" The band was pretty bad (the inside is open to the outside so you can hear it) and not what I would have wanted in my face at dinner, but that's just my personal opinion.
The food was very good, except the chicken martini which sorely lacked flavor (probably salt). Other than that we enjoyed everything!
