Never fails

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.

We have been going to Jack's for 16 years and each meal has been fantastic. the atmosphere is fun, the staff always pleasant and the food priced well for the portions and quality. Try take out also, and the pizza is one of the best!

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

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!
