    I would give the food 4 stars and the service ~2 stars. Everything we ordered was very good. As a transplant from a very foodie city, I would say that, while the food was very good, it's overpriced for what it actually is. As far the service goes, if you want complete apathy, this is the place for you. We had called ahead to say we were coming in for a really big celebration and anything special they could do would be greatly appreciated (and obv we would tip extra). When we walked in, the hostess said, "I see you're celebrating tonight." Then, she escorted us through the dining room to a table in the bar next to a family with a crying toddler. I would probably come here again to grab a quick bite after work because the food was tasty, but not to actually bring people for a special dinner. It was a disappointment and I wish I had picked someplace else for our celebration.

    Birthday dinner for my wife. The hosts were excellent. We were there 45 minutes prior to reservation. They got us seated at the bar and asked us to let them know when we wanted to be seated. Servers and bartenders outstanding. Food and wine was perfect. Great experience all around.

    Loved the welcome, the delicious food, wonderful wine, very good service.. Annoying music, loud when we arrived, later drowned out by generally noisy environment (hard surfaces); unappealing, unattractive lighting. Lighting and noise detracted from enjoyment of the evening.

    We had a reservation at 7:15. We arrived early and decided to sit in the bar. We waited a bit for drinks. We then ordered, got our salads pretty quick. We waited and waited for our entree. Finally after waiting at least 45 min we asked about our food. We then saw the waiter from the bar talk to another server or kitchen staff. He looked over at us and tapped on the computer. This was a birthday celebration. A complete disappointment. Do you have new owners? We left and will not be back. Look at my number 503 360 8201 and see how many times we’ve been there

    We reserved an outdoor table for four to celebrate a 41st birthday and had THE BEST experience! Service was fantastic and the food did not disappoint. Loved the N/A drink options and those who partook in cocktails thought they were fantastic. It was a fabulous night. Thank you!! We’ll be back:-)

    The service is wonderful. Great drinks. Ambience is nice with plenty of space, tall ceilings, and windows. For the food, they’re overcharging for mediocre food. For appetizers we got the escargots (6 little ones for $23!), gelée (interesting but trout was extremely salty). The disappointing part was the entrées were extremely meh for their prices. The bavette is $50, the cut of that is very grainy, and lean, decent flavor just did not wow, and served with frites that were delicious but I mean, meat and fries $50! The other entrée we got was lamb for $48. Again, it had good flavor but did not at all wow for that price. Served with 5 little pieces of rolled up zucchini, why bother with that? We will not be going back.

    What’s not to love about St Jack the food is so good. I love the steak and fires, and the caviar it comes with these amazing crepes definitely worth a try. It’s one of our regular spots great atmosphere and service.

    Nice local restaurant serving French style cuisine. Dishes are beautifully presented with attentive staff. While we enjoy coming here for special occasions, the offerings did not seem as interesting as usual. For the price, we expected a few more tasty choices.

    Fantastic food, the services was great, super fun experience. We were lucky enough to score last minute reservations at the counter near the kitchen. We were able to watch the miraculous efforts of the kitchen staff and chefs. The restaurant is not inexpensive, but our tab was what I expect to pay for fine dining, created by professionals in a beautiful setting. We’ve been here before, and we will certainly go back.

    Bar tender was excellent and improvised some excellent drinks. The oysters were good, not great. One was so small there was barely anything to it. They were brought to us without telling us the types of oysters or with any forks to eat them. Food was good but did not live up to the price. Its been a while since I've eaten here but it does seem as if they quality has suffered some.

    There are apparently fire regulations that prohibit visiting the bar without a seat. No standing allowed. We arrived a bit early to have a drink before dinner, but there was no extra space due to this restaurants popularity. We had a table outside in the small patio area. We enjoyed our time, the service was fantastic and the food was wonderful. It’s one of our favorite restaurants

    Poor value. Food was good but not worth the prices. $100 44oz ribeye on menu replaced with 20 Oz $120 strip. Doesn’t make sense to me. also burger is gone. Some restaurants get too into their own hype and forget it’s not just about food, it’s also about value.
