Intimate restaurant with good food

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.

Jack's Restaurant on Del Prado in Dana Point offers excellent food. Our party of four ordered a salmon special, blue crab crusted orange roughy, Fettuccine Carnivale (with ricotta, spinach and bacon), and The Classic pizza (mozzarella and plum tomato), and all of the dishes were superb. Service is friendly, and the atmosphere is cozy. A great place for a delicious... More

my boyfriend has known Jack for years. We have had the opportunity to dine there on several occasions. We both usually order the fillet mignon or a seafood specialty. The ambience at this restaurant is wonderful and Jack is such a fine gentleman and host here. They are supposed to have good pizza here also but we haven't tried it.... More

Jacks' is a great restaurant we love being able get takeout. My favorite is the feta salad with blackened salmon added on top. Two awesome appetizers are the calamari & the Parmesan eggplant! If you haven't tried this place you won't be disappointed!

We ate here with friends who know the owner, In fact, they were married at Jack's and had the reception there. Everything is great, from the service, cocktails and food. There is a parking lot. We ate early so reservations were not necessary, cannot say about later in the evening.
