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

My friend and I were walking in the midtown area looking for a decent restaurant to have simple meal. After endless fast-food joints we found this place. The atmosphere is quiet so we could actually have a conversation and the food unexpectedly good. The price was reasonable (slightly pricey). Service was efficient, but the waiter did not pay much attention... More

The restaurant is right off the Broadway theatre district. Once inside the darkened rooms of Jack's and you are unaware of the hustle and bustle just outside. It is a great place for a little quiet and some very good food. The service was very good.

Jack's is a cozy restaurant with friendly, attentive staff. On the server's recommendation we ordered "the house specialties" of chicken pot pie and rigatoni. Both were absolutely perfect! My husband ordered the steamed salmon and said his was cooked medium rate to perfection. Our service was quick and polite and the food was a great value-my daughter and I both... More

Went for brunch before show. Service was attentive food ok. Omlets were brown and over cooked. Kids did love their pancakes and french toast.

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
