Food was good but too fancy for my style. Where food is fancy and prices are higher compared to portion. Quiet romantic dinner place

This is a great place for date night. My husband and I went here on a date and had an overall wonderful experience - great ambiance, excellent service (attentive but not intrusive, great recommendations) and upscale food. The next time we are in Hammond we will be sure to come back.

Went for a late lunch with my sister in law. We were met by the owner who was very nice and seated us by a window. The place is atypical for this area.... A beautiful old home with lots of charm. The food was just average. We ordered calamari for an appetizer and they were doughy and thick. The chicken... More

The park-like setting and the architecture give one a feel of being far away from the intersection of I-55 and !-12. The cuisine is very nicely conceived and prepared in a manner close to that of the Caribbean world. For example the turtle soup was strong on a lighter tomato based broth than the usual roux found in South Louisiana.... More

Jacmel has for years been the epitome of fine dining in Hammond. And having been there periodically over the years I've always found it to be good, but perhaps becoming a bit dated. However, on a recent visit I was pleased to find the menu a bit more contemporary. Everything was tasty, interesting and a bit more modern.

We go for mainly special occasions now. The food and atmosphere is truly great Im not giving it 5 stars because of the price point and the aount of food for the price isn't justifiable. If not real hungry, want to eat something special and have a great atmosphere, Jacmel is the place to go!

Great food good service but a little pricey but worth it. The atmosphere is wonderful. It's in a very old house with an outdoor dining area and lovely gardens.

I have had mixed experiences with this restaurant. I have gone numerous times on Saturday and it has been fantastic - as good as any restaurant that I have ever eaten at. However, I have gone a few times during the week and have not been as satisfied. I assume it has to do with who is staffing the kitchen... More

Jacmel Inn has a new chef and a new menu. They have retained some of the old standard, but the new additions are noticeable. I first tasted drum (the fish) with a medley of vegetable. That was delicious, particularly the medley of mushroom, onion, and the crunchy snow pea. The following day, I had hanger steak with another medley of... More
