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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
