I have been eating at Jack's for years and love the place. The food is awesome! Super friendly and fun staff. Check out happy hour and try the eggplant parmesan, by far the best you will ever find in any restaurant.

My wife and I visited this restaurant during happy hour and the food was so good we skipped dinner. We each had different salad. My wife added eggplant parmesan and I had calamari. Everything was discounted due to happy hour and everything tasted great. The staff was very welcoming and the service was terrific. We will return whenever we are... More

Always good no matter what or when. Farm to table concept means fresh and organic but sophisticated cuisine. Jack is always there to meet and greet and you feel like his personal guest.

Had dinner here. The food was good, but the service left a bit to be desired. I felt that the maitre D didnt know us so we were totally expendable.

Nice lighting, booths, bar area, outside area with heaters. The food is almost excellent. Service is inconsistent and can be improved.

This is the best restaurant for Italian with a conscience! The pizza is out of this world! I LOVE the spinach and garlic appetizer and always get the tomato and tonic salad as well! My husband and I come here to celebrate because every person who works here make us feel like a member of the family. I really love... More

We were staying at the St. Regis and based on the trip advisor reviews ventured to Jack's for Italian. The people were very welcoming when we arrived, however, we immediately felt like this was probably a local restaurant as they asked us where we were from since they didn't recognize us! The bread was delicious, we enjoyed the caper aioli... More

Delicious food and great service. Jack greets customers and makes them feel special and welcome. Best egg plant Parmesan I've ever had.
