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.

We are locals and have been coming to Jack's Restaurant for 15 years.....never a bad meal, in fact all have been great. The eggplant parm is one of the best ever, thinly layered with great flavor. The pizza is to die for. Service is wonderful and the atmosphere is sophisticated beach.....enjoy.

Fresh, organic ingredients and high quality meats. Very good wine selection. Options for gluten free. Helpful staff and a pleasant atmosphere. You can tell that the quality of the experience matters to Jacks.

Grass fed, wild caught sustainable food! Jack's has an excellent variety for the choosiest diners- lamb, beef, veal, chicken, fish, seafood and even raw, vegan and Gluten free choices. All at affordable prices. I highly recommend the eggplant appetizer as it is the best I have ever eaten!

Jack's is our "go to" place. When we want a special evening or to celebrate a special occasion, Jack's is the place. One of the things that makes the place special is that Jack (and most of his staff!) remember your name after a couple of visits. The food covers a wide area. Mostly Italian but if you are health...

Thankfully we had a reservation on a Saturday night because they were turning people away. While the decoration isn't anything to write home about... the food is! The trout was excellent! The service was more than adequate as to be helpful but not intrusive. After dinner go for a nice walk on the Strand Beach. Perfect evening.

My boyfriend took me to Jack's for my birthday this week. Jack is a good man and the service here is great. Love the ambience and setting. We had Veal Marsala and a Halibut steak. Received a lovely spumoni for my birthday. As always, we will be back!

I thought it was a little pricey. The food I ordered I didn't like at all (pasta with shrimp and spicy lemony-capers sauce). The waitress was friendly though. The place was nice but I didn't like the food.

We were visiting Dana Point, and decided to try Jack's. Food: For what it's worth, the quality and portion of the food was realy good (filet mignon and orang roughy). We also ordered brownie a la mode - very good. Service: Friendly and attentive. One minor thing - we made reservation through open table, asked for a recognition since it... More
