Service = 0 Food quality = 0 Was really hoping that this restaurant being at that it’s a family run restaurant would’ve had more care and more personalize service but it was terrible.

We hadn't been to Jonas' in a couple of years, and not much has changed except for somewhat higher prices. Still a small basket of bread and butter. Still frozen-bagged veggies as the side dish. But the schnitzel and spatzle and potatoes and crepes are...More

The decor is sure to catch your eye. All kinds of Hungarian stuff on the walls. We had beef stew and schnitzel. It was good and you got a plate full. Should have had the small portions, no room for the crepe deserts. The stew...More

Small authentic and intimate style setting. Delicious food with generous portions. Overall high quality and authentic Hungarian food although for the price per dish it is surprising that frozen vegetables were served (peas, carrots, beans tasted like cooked from a frozen bag). Good, friendly service....More
