I've been to Jacks three times; twice personally and once on business. Two times the service and the food was interesting and wonderful The last time, the service was fine, but the food simply aweful. My friend and I each purchased the "four tapas" dinner - so eight dishes to choose from. Two were good. The squid was rubbery, the... More

We found the restaurant by passing by. It was full, so we anticipated some waiting time, but got a table right away. It s a rather small place and when all tables are occupied, it can be difficult to hear what your companion is saying. That apart, the food was very good. We each got three tapas for 29 dollars...

Though I have lived in NY for almost two decades and have been in the Times Square countless times, I had not heard anything about Jack's. I happened to pass it while walking in the area, checked them out on Trip Advisor since I am always looking for pre-theater dinner possibilities in the Times Square/Broadway area, and having seen positive...

Referred here by our hotel. Close to the hotel. Mediocre food. Service was good. Lots of bar action and little restaurant. Is a relief from chains in the Times Square area.

Scallops were incredible! Also have an awesome appetizer deal - ordered 5 and plenty for a family of 4! Would go back for sure.

We dined at Jack's before going to see Newsies at the Nederlander Theater. The location was great, and after seeing good reviews on TripAdvisor, I asked our concierge which of a few different choices she recommended. She immediately said "Jack's", noting that it was good food and service, yet (despite being essentially in Times Square) not too touristy. We were... More

Great salad. Great side dish. Tough rib eye without a lot of flavor. Mildest horseradish ever with the shrimp cocktail. Brother wasn't impressed by his ny strip either

The menu had a variety of foods at good prices. The restaurant isn't a dive bar, it's bright and clean. The waitstaff were also attentive. I saw a customer ask the waitress if she could charge his cell and without question she plugged it in right near the register in his line of sight.

Stopped here on a whim for lunch - best burger I've had in a very long time. Salad was delishous as well - smoked chicken was very tasty. Returned for dinner the following night - chicken on Ceasar salad was a bit overdone but still good.

Jack's fills a niche between franchise restaurants and the super-expensive. It was quiet enough for intelligent, or at least intelligible, conversation ~5 pm on a Saturday. Not sure if that holds up when the crowds arrive, given the hard surfaces, but at least there was no blaring music being forced on us. The feeling was of a cozy retreat. The... More
