We found JD's on the internet as a halfway point to meet friends between Sarasota and Fort Myers. It was our good fortune!

Made reservations for our party of 5 for 5:00 p.m., prior to the show. My husband and I have dined at the restaurant on prior occasions, but this was a new experience for our friends. They were very impressed by the décor, white tablecloths and feeling of intimacy they got when we were escorted to our seats. We were greeted... More

Just got home and I have never had the pleasure of dining at a restaurant where the diners spontaneously jumped up whike dining and engaged in a standing ovation. That says how fantastic the performances by the musicians was. The food was great too. In three years I have only been there 3 times and was always impressed by the... More

This restaurant has nice ambiance, but it is right next to a Days Inn. The food is good, but on the pricey side. There is often live music so it is nice for special occasions.

Discovered this restaurant a little over a year ago, and we made reservations for three for their Valentine's Day dinner. Set menu for this event with several selections in each of the four courses. All our food was absolutely outstanding. I chose crab bisque for 1st course, followed by a wonderful oysters rockefeller. We each had different main entrees -... More

I walked in to a soft warm atmosphere with live jazz music. I sat at the bar where I was greeted and well taken care of. The food is outstanding, fresh, flavorful and seasoned perfect. The staff was highly educated and very informative. One of the best dining experiences I have ever encountered all around!!

It was the best filet mignon I have had! The restaurant was very busy so the dinner process took some time but it was worth the wait.

I have been here twice and I must say the menu is incredible and the preparation is magnifique. Wine list is amazine too. This is more than fine dining; it is the finest dining. Please try to go. The outside of the restaurant is very unassuming. It isets a little off Tamiami next to a silly motel. Anyway, when you... More

above average menu,excellent service ambiance and jazz trio was delightfully unexpected. My excellent entree however was served on a very cool plate. My dinner companions did not have the temp problem however. Small detail but should not happen in an operation of this caliber.
