    Service was prompt and efficient. Server was nice as well. Steak frites were very good. Two small things, near the end it felt rushed as they had another table coming in. In fairness to the restaurant, they do state their is a 2 hour (I think) limit - hence the “efficient” service comment. Perhaps they could consider a slightly longer dining window. Even an extra 30 mins would make a big difference. Didn’t love the Christmas themed dessert trio.

    Service was great! The steak was a bit cold when it first arrived at the table but the candle heater warmed it back up. The fries were very good and crispy, the leek soup was really good as well and the most outstanding part was the dessert! We had the sticky toffee pudding which was the best ending to the meal!

    This proved to be a great spot for a birthday celebration with different generations - it takes a lot of the decision making out of a group event. Service was exceptionally friendly and efficient. Wonderful cocktails. The dessert was to die for! Everyone's steaks were cooked perfectly and presentation is really nice. The house sauce is divine and everyone left happy.

    It was a nice vibe and had good service. It was also quite cheap for what you get. I love the idea of all you can eat fries and the food was overall pretty good. The soup was also a highlight for me.

    Prix fixe steak and frites. Salad and soup for starters were both excellent. Meat was a decent cut, nicely cooked, and well presented. Frites were pretty, good - have had better - but they were "bottomless". Wine was reasonable price, Negroni was a bit small. Don't know that I need to go back, but did enjoy myself. Lots of options out there.

    The hostess was friendly and welcoming and attending to us right away. He sat us brought us water to start. The server took a little while to first come over to our table however after that all servers were very attentive. I ordered the Twilight cocktail which was delicious, not too sweet and a great lemon zest. We then got bread and butter which was just ok, think they need to step up the bread game. But the salad was perfectly dressed and fresh. Our steaks were cooked exactly to our liking and perfectly salted. The fries were great and reminding me of McDonalds fries but crispier, fresher and perfectly salted as well. We went on a Sunday and to our surprise dessert was also included. It was a sticky toffee pudding of the perfect portion size and not too decadent after a hearty meal. Would definitely recommend!

    We started with the green salad which was just OK, I think the salad could have been a bit better with crispy lettuce. The home -made baguette was warm and served with with butter, excellent. We loved the steak, cooked perfectly with a buttery sauce on the side and lots and lots of crispy fries. We left very happy and very full! Perfect for a fall dinner.

    What a perfect night! We went to J’s to celebrate an engagement. The engaged couple chose J’s Steak Frites, which none of us, including them, had ever been to before. What a perfect choice. It was great going to a restaurant where we didn’t have to labour over what to order. The meal, from salad to delicious bread to perfectly cooked and delicious made-do-order steak to delicious dessert was perfect. We loved our server and everyone who served us. What a special night!! Thank you, J’s Steak Frites!!!

    Service was super warm & welcoming, & portions were generous. Left satisfied. Salad was super fresh and tasty, housemade baguette also fresh and yummy (wish the butter served with it was softer tho…impossible to spread, why do restaurants do this?). Steak was tasty and cooked perfectly as requested, butter sauce was delish, and fries filled the craving. Only thing that could take this meal up a notch, is if fries were fresh made in house. (They didn’t seem made in house to us…more like frozen fries they baked up in the kitchen?) Would be lovely to have parmesan fries or a truffle & parm fries option? Would be DELUXE. LOVED that I didn’t have to ask for more of their advertised “bottomless” fry service, our server asked us a few times instead so we didn’t have to! Encore fries came out piping hot, but just wish they were made fresh in house. We ordered 1 Dessert to share, which I didn’t care for, but my husband gobbled up. So I guess it just wasn’t for me, but $18 for 1 dessert seemed steep compared to the awesome value of the rest of the meal? I will def go back & will recommend to friends. Was an easy, casual restaurant that had some ambiance. Simple & fun date night out!

    I had read great reviews. Unfortunately the food was very disappointing. It would have been cheaper to have gone to McDonald’s and bought a few large fries for a fraction of the cost. The steak was okay as well as the salad-both not remarkable. Keg’s is much better with better quality steak and salad for a few more dollars. The desserts were outstanding but so was the price 18 dollars each. Too bad as I was looking to get the same experience as I have had in New York and Paris. I guess this is Toronto.

    Interesting concept - $49 for a strip loin steak with frites, salad, bread and an amazing lemony tarragon butter sauce for your steak and/or your frites. Marked-up wines and expensive desserts. Well worth it. Nice vibe, friendly staff, good music.
