We had not been to J Ps in a few years. It has been very nicely renovated. The atmosphere is relatively quiet with relatively small dining areas. The service was good but their speciality, Wellfleet Paella, a disappointment. It had adequate shellfish, but was lacking flavor expected of paella. It... read more

This is one of the elite dining venues in Wellfleet. A superb kitchen offeris a moe limited menu for dinner with dishes that are tasty as well as creative. Tonight we started with lobster bisque followed by pork tenderloin on one side of the table and almond-crusted sole on the other. Good portions of food that were both creatively cooked... More

My wife had been wanted to try this Wellfleet mainstay for some time but for some reason the exterior just didn't appeal to me and I had moderate expectations. I finally relented and was pleasingly surprised. I had the Wellfleet (seafood) Paella and it was very good. I have eaten paella in Spain and often found it dry and very... More

Six of us went to Finely JP's for their Prix Fixe dinners and they were so very good. There were several choices for each course. I had the chowder (delicious) and then the sole (which was outstanding) and finished with a slice of decadent chocolate "pie" oh my! Others had the pork tenderloin which was also absolutely delicious. Service was... More

We ordered skate cheeks...not too bad. I had the piquante calamari....and chocolate cake for dessert. The piquante sauce was hot and bizarre tasting. Tiny pieces of calamari loaded with prepared garlic. The bill was high..and my stomach was in distress quickly after dinner. I spent two hours on the bathroom floor trying to feel better while my intestines were growling.... More

Overall this place is a disappointment especially when the check arrives. It's expensive, and as you're paying you wonder why. I had a garden salad and the paella both were disappointing. The salad was tiny and the was nothing remotely special about dressing; it's likely from a jar. The paella was anything but paella. You would never have know that... More

We are part-time residents and have frequented this restaurant, however, we are done. While it has been ok in the past, our last visit will be our last. While it is a small, comfy restaurant, it is pricey for the amount and quality of the food, but a serving a mussels with sand in it and the waitress refusing to... More

"Casual fine dining" as it advertises fits. We were dressed casually, but felt comfortable. Very nice ambiance and tasteful decorating welcomed us. My husband liked his paella, and I enjoyed the special 5-6pm of app/entree/desert. The crusted almond sole was the best meal of our Cape Cod trip this year. Will be sure to return!

Finely JPs has been a favorite evening dining spot for a couple of years but we recently began to enjoy the Sunday Brunch from 10-2. The menu has a variety of brunch items, but I have always enjoyed the Benedict's. On this Sunday it was a clam cake Benedict that caught my eye. It was delicious. My wife feasted on... More
