Stopped into Jack's for brunch today. I ordered eggs Benedict florentine and my guest had a chicken wrap with fries. Service was very good. The chicken wrap and fries were excellent. Fries were obviously dipped in the fryer twice to get that soft middle and crunchy exterior that make a great fry. The herbed potatoes that came with my eggs... More

We came here for dinner on a recommendation and we were not disappointed! It was a little plain but classy and bright but perfect for what we were looking for. We sat in the bar area because we wanted to watch the World Cup game that was on, we even took up 2 of their small tables so that we... More

Nothing to impress me. Food was ok but my chicken breast was as tough as a dried piece of jerky. Blonde waitress wasn't pleasant. Seemed annoyed with her job. She should be grateful that she has one. The self imposed tip was rude. I think if they feel they've done a good job they should leave tips up to the... More

My husband and I popped in for dinner on a recent trip. Liked the fact you could sample many small plates and share. We had satay, steamed dumplings, chorizo on naan and chicken spring rolls. Satay was a bit dry and the peanut sauce was too thick, but still tasty. Everything else was fine. Service was please ant, though the... More

The diverse menu of this restaurant makes it a great choice prior to going to the theater. Our group enjoyed a wide variety of tapas. The staff was friendly and it was priced well.

I'd read good reviews of this restaurant so I thought I'd try it out. The service was pleasant but the food was very disappointing - a restaurant is only good value if the quality is good for the price which, in my view, it wasn't. I had two tapas and both were poor. I was seated near the bar so... More

We were looking for an Irish bar but we were surprised because the food was excellent. We had the Shepherd's pie which was a generous portion but also brought fond memories of home. The service was good and we had wonderful evening.

This is probably the 4th or 5th time I've eaten in this restaurant in as many years, and the food and overall experience were as good as the previous visits. The selection of tapas is great, and the entrees that I've tried were all very good. It's just a quick walk from the Courtyard on W 40th and isn't all... More

We found this bar quite by chance and were so glad that we did. We had a couple of drinks in the bar, and as it was raining, so decided to eat in the restaurant here too. The staff are very friendly and attentive and the food was very good with plenty of choice. The prices are very reasonable. The... More
