Very nice experience. We went for a birthday and were treated with a celebratory glass of champagne and a candle with dessert. We will definitely be going back.

For the cost food was underwhelming. Little disappointed. Usually makes it into top restaurants but not up to hype.

The duck wasn't salted and tasted bland. It was bad. Overpriced for such bad food.

The wait staff was incredible, despite the poor heating situation.

Cocktails were good.

The food and service at St. Jack is absolutely delightful.

Because of COVID times, we sat outside in the cold weather, and the temperature was literally the only thing I could complain about. I'll probably wait to come back when the weather warms up cuz even with heat lamps I was pretty cold the whole time.

Enjoyed a long overdue evening at St Jack. They've certainly pivoted to provide an enjoyable evening in spite of the dining COVID restrictions. Covered, distanced seating and the all important, heaters. Actually two heaters at each table. As always the service, drinks and food were right on the money. I love St Jack and look forward to some normal dining in the near future though for now they make the best of it

Loved our date night here. They had a covered patio and heaters on each side of the table! We definitely stayed warm & dry on a rainy winter day.

Excellent food (Check out the steak frites, oysters, and lemon tarts!) Great selection of wine. We had a white & rosé.

Staff was awesome and we felt super safe with everyone wearing masks, social distancing, sanitizer on tables, etc.

I think the covered patio is great for reducing noise, because you do sit alongside the road / traffic - but it does stay pretty quiet at your table.

All in all, great spot!

We had a very special evening at St. Jack. The ambiance in the parquet was calm, warm, and inviting, especially being surrounded by rain. Service was outstanding and everyone was very nice and welcoming. Pacing of the meal was spot on and all of the food was perfectly prepared. Thank you, St. Jack, for a wonderful evening in which we completely forgot that we are still in Covid times!

Great service, sat outside. We felt safe, with Covid protocols clearly respected, tables easily 6 ft apart. The food is always good, and the staff were fantastic. It was chilly, but there are outdoor heaters, so wear a jacket and act like you are about to eat outside in the winter, in the PNW. Support these people.

Every dish exceeded expectations. Best in class: soup a la onion: oysters: mushrooms Bourgogne. Steak frites deserts all all as good as any. Closest to Chez paniz in Berkeley as any place!

My wife and I recently attended St. Jack for our anniversary dinner, our first night out in...??? Pre-covid times! We were greeted immediately after our arrival, seated promptly and enjoyed a lovely evening. The staff was very attentive, kind, courteous, professional and the food was incredible! Would definitely recommend!

They sat us an hour past our reservation. Waitress was very rude and seemed annoyed to be taking our order. She didn’t come back to check on us one time even though I wanted to order another drink and ask for a couple things to go with my food. She walked by many times but never looked at our table. I couldn’t even wave to get her attention. I would not go back based on the service.

Lovely ambiance and experience. They worked to make New Year's Eve safe and special for many couples. We were seated past our reservation time and then rushed to leave, however, which was slightly disappointing, but we had a pleasant time nonetheless.

Outside seating, I counted only nine tables. Heaters and partial plastic enclosure makes dining comfortable without a coat. The food is always stellar as is the service. One of our favorites.

Now that they're back open after the latest shutdown, they added a prepaid dinner for 2 complete with dessert. It was AMAZING!!! Large portions, so delicious and detailed instructions for plating and heating at home. Can't wait to see what next weeks menu is!

Food was delicious, service was excellent. Wine list was overpriced. We did see a couple tables bring their own bottles. Not sure what the corkage fee would be but seems like a good solution. All in all a winner!

Food was ok. The choices were VERY limited (probably due to Covid). I saw pictures and an extensive menu online and was looking forward to try some of them. Turned out, just about everything I wanted to try was not on the menu at the restaurant. I end up getting the lamb shank which was decent. The burgers the kids had was good also. But the vegetarian dish wasn't something to write home about. Overall, we were a little disappointed. Aside from the great service, there was nothing on the menu at the restaurant that we were looking forward to try.

I wish the service was as exceptional as the foie gras. The 3.5 lb ribye was $98 and came 45 mins later very rare not med rare as if they seared it and put in the oven for 10 mins. I expected the pomme frites to be better than just frozen fries from a bag. they have nicer fries at little big burger.
