The place is impressive. Nice classy atmosphere inside and outside seating, as well. I ususally go for Happy Hour with friends, frequently. The bartenders are not attentive. They ignore you like they are better than you (btw - we are not an ugly group!). Was in there last night and it was a quiet Monday, as expected, and still waited... More

C'mon Tom Schaudel... you can do better than this! Amateurish wait staff, food is too funky. Setting reminds me of a hotel lobby in the mid-west. Stick with getting the basics correct, and the people will come.

I had dinner last night at Jewel, with some friends. The lobster was mediocre, and we arrived at 6:30 pm. The first course was delivered at 8:30, and the main entrée was at 9:30pm. The wait staff was invisible and coffee and dessert ( terrible selection) arrived at 10pm. In addition, all the people at the restaurant were due to... More

Pat our server was great and moved us to a booth after our initial request was declined. I had a really nicely cooked fillet steak. The Lemon cake my colleague ordered was simply delicious. The latte was Luke warm so I would forget about an after dinner coffee. I highly recommend this place.

After a few minutes the waitress came to take our drink order..the table already had their drinks. 10 minutes later our drinks arrived., the waitress was not very attentive...only after being asked if there were any dinner specials did she tell us about them....the dinners were...

We had a retirement lunch at this jewel of a restaurant. It was a table of 12. The food was wonderful and the service was very attentive. The atmosphere is chic and modern. It is an experience in dining. Will come back for the happy hour! We shared the pizza as an appetizer which was done perfectly. The presentation of... More

Went here at the suggestion of a business colleague. The staff was prompt and friendly, and didn't make us wait for the entire party to arrive before seating us, something great for a Friday night. Our waitress was excellent. She was knowledgeable and a great sales person! She had us ordering food that I would not have normally tried. The... More

Servers are inexperienced and untrained. Food orders are delivered incorrectly. They have a great wine list but nobody knows anything about the wines anymore. It was my favorite non manhattan locale, and now I can't recommend it. What happened?

Jewel, an experience definitely worth trying. Chef Tom Schaudel has provided so many great choices from the jumbo shrimp cocktail to the filet mignon to the fish dishes.. There is a new great line of sushi and sashimi. The desserts are incredible especially the banana cream pie in jar.There is also a beautiful large bar if you just gathering with... More

I have been at Jewel several times, most recently for dinner this week. The locally sourced menu is comprehensive.....something for everyone....and every item more delicious than the other. The crab salad appetizer was fabulous....so was the swordfish entree. Service is professional & polished. There was a LOUD bar crowd for mid-week Happy Hour (til 700) so the noise level was... More
