After considering a few options for our monthly GNO, Jack Rose Dining Saloon became our destination of choice. We made 7pm reservations on a Saturday and were promptly seated in the dining area. As we looked around the restaurant, we could not help but notice the vast inventory that lined the walls. Since this was our first visit, our server (Charles) provided recommendations. He was spot on!!
We started with the Titanic Love Affair cocktail. Oh, my!!! For appetizers we tried the Whiskey Wings and Buttermilk Biscuits & Honey Butter.. ..Well, okay, we had to order a second order of biscuits. These served as a perfect starter. I ordered the Local Rockfish and my friend ordered the Seared Scallops. Since we had a hard time narrowing down an entree, we decided to order different dishes so that we could taste both dishes that we wanted. The rockfish and grits were favorable. The scallops were delicious as well and HUGE!!!
After dinner we walked upstairs to the rooftop. It was as nice area but since it was crowded we came back downstairs and sat at the bar. It was a good learning experience as we heard other patrons receiving the details regarding their whiskey selections. We will definitely return to Jack Rose. If it wasn’t for our prescheduled pickup by our chauffeur, I’m sure we would have stayed much later.
Things were great for our second time there. Had the pork chop which i thought had too much fat but the waitress assured me it was fine. It did have good flavor.
Got a call from AMEX security that my number had been compromised 30 minutes after leaving restaurant. May have been a coincidence but manager felt i was being accusatory.
Really enjoyed my experience! The pork chop is beyond delish!
AMAZING FOOD, EVEN BETTER WHISKEY SELCTION, FRIENDLY AND FUN SERVICE - ONE OF THE BEST RESTAURANTS WE HAVE EVER BEEN TO.
Love Jack Rose... one of our fav places when we are in DC. Hubby loves the whiskey selection!
My grandfather wanted to visit me for my birthday, and his friend recommended this place for steak (cos we’re from Texas and that is his favorite dish). The steak was excellent, my margarita was close enough to what I’d get in Texas, and the oysters were great. This is a relatively small menu for what I would expect from a steakhouse, but other than that everything was great. Would definitely recommend for special occasions.
Excellent service, amazing selection, delicious everything!
Always awesome as usual. Over 2700 whiskeys/bourbons to choose! Great steak dinner w/ custom made flight. Will always be a special go-to in DC.
We visit top rated bourbon bars and this was one on our list. We had a great time and loved the choices. Dinner was very good, she had ribeye and he scallops and both very tasty. Cocktails and Bourbons were alittle higher priced out it is Washington DC. When in the area again we would go back.
Amazing whiskey bar with over 2700 types to choose from. Food was also very good and service was quick and knowledgable and helpful in selecting new things to try. Would definitely recommend and return to this spot! Fun place for a small group or date or meeting with friends or even a pregame/pre-dinner drink.
The good was bad and the noise was extreme. I do not understand how you could rate their food as good. Very disappointed in your rating. I doubt if I would use the services of open table again
The food was outstanding. My date was a bourbon connoisseur and he was in heaven. Our waiter wasn't exactly a warm fuzzy server and had a tendency to walk away before we were finished asking questions or ordering but he did know his bourbon and was great at conversing about bourbon and making suggestions. Eventually the Bourbon expert Chris came over. 24 years old but was incredible with information and very personable. If you like high end bourbon this is your place.
Excellent food, and knowledgeable service, definitely worth every penny I spent here.
Best pork chop I ever had. Incredible bourbon and whiskey selection. My only complaint is the setting sun shining in you eyes while sitting at the table, otherwise perfect.
Thoughtful servers who listen to your likes and dislikes and scour the bar to find a match. All great suggestions and not over the top expensive.
Natalya was amazing, the experience and the knowledge of the team and room was overwhelming. This is heaven on earth!! The selection, the service and “Oh Morgan”what a great night out with friends.
Jack Rose excelled on all fronts this time! Annie was a fantastic and knowledgeable servicer. The food was outstanding (loved the pimento cheese) and as always the bourbon selection impressed my client!
The largest whiskey selection in the western hemisphere.
The noise level in both the downstairs dining room and upstair bar area was excessive. In addition, while I appreciate the delivery of the bottle of liquor that you've ordered to the table, it doesn't need to sit there the entire time you are drinking. The tables are small with limited room for all the menus and other items.
One of our party ordered an anniversary edition of a particular distillery and the bottle delivered to the table was of an 'independent bottler' and the only reference to the expected brand was a Dymo label affixed to the top of the bottle by Jack Rose Dining Saloon. At $20/oz., one expects to see the actual distillery output, not some middleman. In addition, the explanation provided by one of the staff was a bunch of bafflegab in our estimation.
It was described as a common practice. I can assure you, at $20/oz. in other establishments, you're getting something out of a bottle done by the distillery. Not to mention if you're going to deliver bottles to be viewed by the customer with Dymo labels, you better have a crisp explanation.
I won't be back, nor will I recommend JRDS to anyone.
Fantastic! Will absolutely be returning.
Great selection on woohoo... So many bottles. Id come back again, not to mention the delicious food pairs with woohoo
Jack Rose lives up to its reputation as a whisk(e)y bar. Their selection is outstanding, the prices are reasonable, and their service is excellent. I will definitely be visiting again in the future.
This is the perfect venue before the theatre. We ordered a dozen small plates for our group which were all fantastic. We especially enjoyed the mushroom risotto and the Burrata with hazelnuts and honey.
HUGE selection of whiskey to choose from. But don’t let that intimidate you. Servers know their stuff and can create a whiskey flight tailored to you!
Extraordinary selection of whiskeys unequaled anywhere else in the District... If you are a small batch bourbon or single malt scotch lover, you will love this place!
Very loud, hard to communicate with our server & guests.
If you enjoy whiskey, especially bourbon, you will love this place! Best bourbon bar I have ever been to. Food was also really good!
Best single malt whisky bar, bar none! Knowledgeable staff to guide you through your choice of single malt scotch whisky
Charlie was an amazing server, who was able to take care of my food allergies. He was very informative, cheerful, and timely. The cocktails were perfect, and the food was superb!
The steak was unreal. Always great whiskey selections.
Amazing bourbon selection! Highly recommend the bourbon flights!!
No air-conditioning and no ice in the water on a 90 plus degree summer day in DC. The server said the ac was broken. They contacted me twice to confirm table but they did not mention broken ac.
Such a unique experience with more than 2700 bottles of bourbon and whiskey. Extremely knowledgeable waitress and bar master to help with selections. The food was unique and yummy and the pecan pie was second to none! Even with some in our party who weren’t bourbon drinkers, it was a Wonderful experience!
Great food! Great atmosphere! Scotch eggs were to die for.
Awesome place however uncomfortably warm inside dining room
Better to attend in fall / winter
Enjoyed 2 whiskey flights and dinner before seeing Hamilton at the Kennedy Center nearby. The flights were expertly curated, and the food was delectable! I had the Halibut, which was expertly cooked and was tasty and juicy. My friend had the rabbit ragu that had great texture and was also tasty.
Came here again after the show for cocktails and they were well balanced and delicious! Chris, the whiskey advisor, was great and led us to some tasty choices.
From start to finish this was great experience!! The food was great and the whiskey selection is second to none! The whole vibe of Jack Rose can not be beat.
Dinner was great, drinks were greaf, after dinner drinks were amazing. Putting our names in for Dram and Grain when we sat down made the timing perfect, and Andy was a fantastic bartender, mixologist, and story teller. This was only my second visit, but everything was fantastic and I will definitely be back.
Amazing selection of whiskeys, good food. Must try their whiskey tasting menu - absolutely brilliant for whiskey lovers.
got held up by parade so, seems like a lot of attitude for being a little late. told to hurry up if we wanted to order dinner and never got to look at basement bar. we traveled for 8 hour round trip. food was mediocre. prices outrageous! honestly I like Butcher and The Rye in PITTSBURGH better.
