“Great food and fixed price offerings !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

I took my daughter for lunch here primarily because Jack offers a fixed price lunch and dinner in addition to its a la carte menu. My daughter is currently attending college in this area and I thought it would be great to check out a place that was really nice and that offered an affordable menu for students.

We ordered from the $10 fixed price lunch menu, which included a choice of entree with either a salad, soup, or fries, and a soft drink (which I replaced with a coffee). Jack also offers a $20 fixed price dinner menu--what a price for New York !

Our food was so delicious! We both ordered sandwiches with the side salad--I had the grilled eggplant with gouda cheese and caramelized onions on focaccia bread and my daughter had the turkey club on 7 grain bread.

Unfortunately, I forgot our server's name--he gave us excellent service, refilling water and coffee, not rushing us at all. It's really, really nice to get table service for the prices you would pay after waiting on a long line for a deli sandwich.

The menu has other offerings, too. There would be something for everybody here, including vegetarians.

We decided to share a dessert and ordered the unbelievably delicious triple chocolate mousse cake. Great choice!

This is a very comfortable, clean, and cozy place with really nice ambience. In good weather, there is outside seating.

Located right near Union Square, this is definitely a great spot for tourists. I highly recommend it.

Now that we have tried it, we will definitely return.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2011

My friends and I just happened to find this place when we were looking for a spot for lunch. Luckily they had a table for us as the place filled up quickly. The food was really great and the service was very good as well. This restaurant was little more upscale than our usual but well worth the money.

“Three courses and cocktails for under 30 bucks!”

Walked up, had mussels, Brooklyn dinner and profiteroles, for under $25 bucks! Decent wine list, but all together a great find. Best dinner of my NYC trip.

“Great spot for a drink”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2010

Stopped at Jack's for an after dinner drink. Just what we wanted, good drinks, friendly bartender (thanks for the laughs, Gunnar!) and quiet enough to have conversation. Just off the hustle bustle of Broadway and close to the Courtyard Marriott on 40th.
