The room is OK, but the food was very ordinary for the type of reviews that I have seen. The calamari appetizer was tough and unappealing.

We were in the mood for a romantic dinner, so instead of the "waterfront bar scene" we decided on the intimate vibe of JW. Although this is a very small venue, it is designed well with tables for two and four. ( I am sure they could also arrange for a larger party.) There are two dining areas: The main... More

From the moment we entered, we knew it was going to be a great experience. The decor is cozy and intimate. The vibe is subtle and classy. It was a wonderful place to celebrate our anniversary. But it's the food that is most memorable. From the apple parmesan salad to hub's filet mignon with creamy mushroom Madera sauce to my... More

Several of us had the good fortune of dining at JW on Saturday night. Every now and then you stumble on to something special where the food and the service exceed your expectations. That was certainly the case on Saturday. Starting with the service, our server Jamie (also an owner) was so warm and personable she felt like a good... More

An overall wonderful experience from calling in reservations to our amazing meal. We celebrated our 4 year wedding anniversary at JW. It was our first time to the restaurant, though we had been curious about it for some time. It's small from the outside, yet has a surprising seating capacity inside with a still very intimate feeling. When we arrived... More

Went in for a date night and had an excellent dinner! Every Tuesday and Wednesday is 3 for $30; App, entree and desert. Calamari was delicious was a kicking homemade wasabi sauce, pear pork chop was filling and creme brûlée was delightful. Definitely will be back!

As we left the restaurant after a recent visit my comment to the hostess was: "this was our first visit, but it will not be our last". It was that good. Located in a very small building on the water near the north end of the bay, it is easily missed. I had to retrace my steps to find it.... More

My wife and I have been trying to go to JW's for some time to give a try. It was spoken of well...had the heavily self-marketed "best of somewhere" rating...appeared to focus on local product... menu appeared to be nice take on fundamental restaurant fare. First time we tried, no open tables (hmmm, a good sign). Second time we tried... More

This small restaurant has been voted the best restaurant in the South Sound for many years. This was our second time there. I had seared scallops with wild rice pilaf and vegetables. Everything was cooked to perfection, but the vegetables stole the show. They had a Chai tea rub that was unique and wonderful.
