really nice food, ate here 3 nights over 2 weeks. Good steaks, nice starters, can't flaw it. Excellent service, friendly helpful staff. No complaints here. Price reasonable, wine not the cheapest but same with all restaurants. Would have no hesitation recommending this restaurant.

Within walking distance to the Merchant's House, we dined at Flaming Jacks at the suggestion of the proprietor of the Merchant's House. We were not disappointed! The food was very, very good, and the presentation beautiful! The environment was very hip, with a vibe more attuned to the 30 something crowd, although people of all ages were there including families;... More

The waitstaff and owner have the patience of saints. Despite the drama, I enjoyed my meal of sautéed bass and vegetables. It was very fresh and nicely seasoned. On weekends I think it tends to be a bit noisy or lively, depending upon your point of view.

We've eaten here now a few times and the service on the last occasion was the same as every other time - excellent. The waiter (and we seem to get the same boy every time) was fab. Nothing was too much bother and he interacted not only with the adults, but with the child who was there as well. The... More

The staff were very attentive and offered suggestions on where to go out at night for drinks and to see live music. They were very knowledgeable about the city. The food (and that's the important part!) was to die for! I had the sea bass with the mussel risotto. The portions were generous (I couldn't finish). The risotto was rich... More

Seating is both at tables, and the more comfy booths. Although we had a bit of a wait for the food to arrive, it was worth it. Very tasty, well portioned, and reasonably priced. Service is attentive, and friendly. We had a nice evening, and we will return.
