My young adult daughter and I ate at Jack's after a full day of museums and shopping. We arrived around 7:30 and the place was hopping. While it was a little loud, it quieted down once the pre-theatre rush was over. We enjoyed the 4 tapas meal, which was our choice of any four tapas. This was more than enough... More

Went to have dinner with my significant other tonight. Ordered the 12 oz. grilled steak, a few hours later I started getting sweaty. Then I had terrible cramps, and now I can't stop throwing up. The steak is all I had to eat today (besides cereal and milk for breakfast, which would not give me food poisoning). Very disappointed. Plus,... More

Had trouble making reservations for dinner in the theatre district. Talked to the concierge in our Hotel and she suggested Jacks and made us a reservation. Our waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable, suggesting what were the best dishes and he was right. Great food and great service. They got us out quickly knowing that we were going to a... More

We stopped in here for a nice dinner based off recommendation from an employee at out hotel. The place is small but still nice. The host said there would be a 45 minute wait. He asked our name and we sat at the bar. The bartender was fast but not very personable. I had a limojito(alcohol) and it was delicious!... More

We enjoyed dinner before going to see the Rockettes and chose this restaurant based on location and other reviews on TripAdvisor. My wife had pasta and I had the grilled chicken, red potatoes and mixed vegetables.. Both were very good and big portions. Mine was part of the 3 course Prix Fixe option that included a large and good salad... More

We stopped in to this charming restaurant on our way out of town on a blustery cold December evening. We were seated very quickly by a very nice lady and immediately waited on. Unfortunately, after we placed our order the waitress only returned once (I had to call her over, then asked her to refill my hot tea). She sat... More

Discovered this by accident, looking for something on the way back up town from Madison Square Gardens - good food, reasonable prices, also a cocktail list and friendly bartender. Went twice.

We were on our second night in New York and wanted a small meal and a nice glass of wine and found Jacks Bar which offered Tapas rather than the bigger meals that seem to be the norm in New York. It is a good idea though to only order one at a time each and share as they are... More

Planned on meeting friends for brunch at Jack's as described on their website, only to find out on arrival that they no longer serve Sunday brunch. The manager was extremely apologetic and gave us complimentary beverages. We stayed and had lunch which was very good, so no complaints here. But please, update the website!

We had dinner at Jack's on a busy Saturday night in late November. We had a party of four. Two of us ordered from prix fixe menu which included appetizer, entree, and dessert for $32. We order the salmon which was delicious. The other two members of our party ordered the chicken pot pie (yummy and huge) and the rigatoni... More
