Great place to meet friends and coworkers

Went for lunch with four business/friends. Salads were really good and it was easy to speak without too much noise. Staff was very helpful as well. I would go back again. Prices were average for NYC.

This was our first time at Jack's. We thought the food was very good, the service terrific! When the waitress found out it was my husband's birthday, she immediately asked me what type of dessert he liked. At the end of our meal, she came out with his dessert with a lit candle in it and wished him a happy... More

This place is New York all the way and very cool, the staff is top notch, the food great, esp. the Shepard's Pie!! A very reliable location for lunch,... More

We got off to a very good start. Started at a small table then were moved to a diner setting which was more comfortable. Starters were spring rolls and dumplings. Both awesome. The service was excellent. Then can the mains - rib eye steak for one of us and paella for the other. Disappointing. Such a good start - what... More

Went for dinner before a show. Seated promptly at reserved time. Sat away from the bar area which was pleasant. Food was erratic. My rack of lamb (which I've had there before) was overdone and sparse for the price. My companions were more satisfied with their entrees.

We were in town last week to see a show at MSG. Our favorite restaurant was already booked, so I read reviews and took a chance on making a reservation at Jack's. It was a nice surprise! We had the flat bread appetizer (excellent), we split the chicken parm (also excellent) and split a piece of carrot cake (excellent -... More

We decided to try Jacks tonight on our last night in New York. We arrived about a half hour early for our reservation with plans to have a few drinks at the bar. Best guess is that we sat at the bar maybe 15 minutes before our table was ready. Once at the table, we had prompt timely service all... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
