You can't go wrong at a JA's...

I really enjoy these places - the bar scene is always fun, and the food really good. Would give them five stars, but I find it a little pricey for fare. However, I will be back on occasion...

We ate here on a Monday night and the place was hoping. The wine by the glass options are excellent and there is a good selection of lower calorie choices. The service was excellent as well. The team at this restaurant has it together. Good job.

We usually have dinner here with this particular couple because he loves the Prime Rib(so do I). With it being accompanied by that huge portion of garlic redskin smashed potatoes, what could be wrong with that. Throw in a bottle of Red followed by cups of strong black coffee and that wonderful carrot cake(splittable of course).

We liked the food so much we went two nights in a row. The 1st night, I had the filet minon with bernaise sauce. Absolute heaven! My husband had prime rib and was cutting it with a fork. The next night, we had the deviled eggs. They had a little relish, bacon, and a little heat. Fabulous! I then had... More

The food is over priced and definitely not worth the price but this is a nice atmosphere for an intimate date.

This is my go-to place for business lunches in the area. It's right off the freeway and easy to find, with an upscale feel at a fair price. My overseas business associates love the steak here. I enjoy the Scottish Salmon. I think it's a real value for the price. Great restaurant.

We came for lunch one Saturday afternoon. I had only been here once before when it first opened. It was not veggie friendly, so I never returned. Someone invited me here, and I accepted. This time I enjoyed their house made veggie burger. It truly was outstanding. The person who invited me had the filet which was excellent. She also... More
