Great ambiance!

Spending the night at Hotel Paisano and decided to try Jett's. Appetizer spinach and artichoke dip was tasty but could use some spice. We split the giant burger and it was more than enough. Nice grilled moist burger. Espresso creme brûlée for dessert was light and tasty.

We didn't have reservations (although the restaurant was not full by any stretch & there were numerous empty tables), but they allowed us to sit at the bar and order dinner there. The food was absolutely delicious as well as the wine choice. The setting is great with visions of GIANT running through your mind. Taking a stroll through the... More

We ate in Jett's two nights. Named after James Dean's character in the movie Giant, which was filmed in local area and cast stayed at this hotel. Great memorabilia and film pics in the front lobby. Food in dining room was excellent and so was the service. Great bar too and a local gathering spot.

Half the people in our group of 6 got sick later that night after eating here. The hotel and space is very charming, but the food was really poor. Make sure to make reservations at Maiya's or Cochineal well in advance to avoid a dinner disaster.

Even after reading the mix reviews online, we decided to stay in and eat at Jett's. Like almost weekends, the hotel was sold out. It was on a very crowded Friday night and the bar was full of folks. Looking at all these people around, we worried about slow service. We were surprised that we got seated right away; the... More

The Paisano Hotel has developed a good reputation in a town that is now a "destination." Marfa, Texas is full of interesting locations and has a history that includes film stars, retiring rock stars, an historic WWII army base, one of the more significant locations for public art in the United States, and the mystery of the "Marfa lights." With... More

Jett's Grill in the Hotel Paisano is a ten star delight! Words simply cannot describe the quality and presentation of the meals and the absolutely gorgeous Paisano Hotel in which they are served. Mine was the bone-in ribeye, cooked to perfection with a Hollandiase Sauce, some delicious asparagus and loaded, whipped potatoes. I could go into raptures over both the... More

The food was good, not great. I had a nice pork chop that was good, with excellent green beans and so-so smashed potatoes. My daughter had a chicken caesar salad that was good, but nothing special. We had a spinach and artichoke dip to start with that was also okay. The atmosphere is excellent. The restaurant is located in a... More

So this will be a $100 dinner for two guaranteed. The service was terrible. We came in on a Monday (one of 3 restaurants open on Mondays) and didn't have a reservation. I didn't think a reservation is needed in Marfa on a Monday in the "low" season. Even though there were empty tables, we were told that we'd have... More

My recent visit was the best yet, though each time the service was good, especially the redhead I've gotten a couple times...she's especially professional and welcoming, uncommon in Marfa. (she waits the same and so well for everyone - not just a few favorites - mixing drinks beytween taking orders, knows the offerings, and so on) This time my food... More
