“Live Shows at Jonathan's Ogunquit - a Real Treat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

I have to admit this is not a review of the restaurant itself, but a review of the concert venue and shows that Jonathan's sponsors most weekends. Let me say this - you are missing out on a real opportunity to experience live music in what has to be one of the most intimate settings in the area. Above the restaurant is a marvelous area devoted to visiting live acts - comedy, singers, music etc. For example, twice this summer we went to see Suede there, the awesome jazz singer that just sweeps you away with her gorgeous voice and music. Her bass and piano accompanists are fantastic and the trio provide top flight performances. As I said, the venue is perfect for live music - no one is too far from the stage and the acoustics are almost flawless. We always take advantage of the special ticket specials and enjoy a dessert and coffee before the show. The bar is available before the show and the drinks well made. Jonathan's is a real gem and those of us who go regularly encourage everyone reading this to visit when in the area. No one can get enough live music.

“Average ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Totally average in every way. Nothing to offend nothing to remember either. Average wine list, Ok service, bland food. If you are going to the play house it is super convenient

“1st Time There; Won't be the Last!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Close to the Ogunquit Playhouse we thought we would try dinner before the performance and we're glad we did. Great hosting by the owner, great service by the waitress, and great food by the chef, and the prices weren't bad. After we paid the bill, the owner asked us on the way out if we took advantage of the discount offered for Playhouse attendees, so he insisted to redo our check for the reduced amount. That even sweetened our experience further, so we will definitely be back!

“sorry to say”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

this was our 4th year to Ogunquit....Jonthan's has always been a highlight of our trip....we tried it twice this year hoping our 2nd visit would be better. For some reason the service has really dropped......that is even having a team working a station.....no attention to detail what so ever.....one of our visits we sat at the bar because the matinee from the playhouse had just finished.....was not staffed properly...having such a large inflex of people at a time...one bartender and a service bartender could not handle the crowd...we sat for 12 minutes before we were acknowleded.......we surely do not mind a wait but then to get ok food with pricey prices...we will not go back.....
