This place was the highlight of our getaway. There was a jazz trio "fill in" that was outstanding. The dinners were delicious. I had veal scallopini with wild mushroom sauce over sun dried tomato risotto mmmm. Husband had the swordfish special with roasted potatoes and an olive artichoke side. Both were mouth wateringly decadent. We shared a bottle of Cotes... More

JD's never disappoints! We get to Port Charlotte a couple of times a year, and we always need to plan at least one night to spend as JD's. We just love the atmosphere, and amazing and delicious dinner!

Excellent food in a relaxed atmosphere. Ice enjoyed many of the chefs fresh fish specials. I love the feel of the place - well spaced tables, good service & the music - small jazz groups with a singer. A wonderful night out as a couple or with friends.

This used to be our go to restaurant for great food, outstanding service and a little jazz. We recently ate here with family to celebrate my 50th birthday and the food was not at all up to par. My husband and father got a filet that was swimming in an overly sweet sauce making it almost inedible. My mother got... More

My husband took me here for my birthday/Valentine's Day. We went on a Saturday after the holiday to avoid the crowds. He was able to snag a last minute reservation and when I say last minute, he called 3 days in advance and got a cancelation. Our reservation was for 5:30 and we were a few minutes late (my husband...

Quiet smooth jazz in the corner, an outstanding meal, and great service made for a wonderful evening. When the only issue was that the cost was a little high and only that...........it was well enjoyed by our party of 7. We will return........and the rack of lamb - sensational.

After reading and getting recommendations from friends..my husband and I recently dined there ..my ribeye steak was drowned in the sauce masking the high fat composition of the steak unable to be seen..every cut and mouthful contained a chunk of fat..I've eaten that cut in much less expensive restaurants and had much less fat..I even asked that it be trimmed...

This restaurant probably rates a "good" but I had to give it VERY good because it was better than AVERAGE. First impressions were great upon walking in the door. We were greeted by the hostess and quickly seated at our reserved table. The lighting was pleasantly dim and there were candles burning on each table. Linen tablecloths and napkins were... More
