“Quiet evening meal, good quality food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

We went to Jonathan's in the Royal Scot Hotel on a Thursday night (early) for a quick dinner. We had the delicious cream of mushroom soup and curried prawns. The service was fast and friendly, and the price for this two-course meal was $15. I will definitely go back.

“A Very Nice Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

Just had a late dinner tonight and it was delicious! Staying at the hotel across the street and popped into Jonathan's for a quick dinner. Had the $20 two course meal...choice of sole or tenderloin and both came with a delicious salad and delicious vegetables. Server was polite, efficient and professional. We would definitely go back!

“New Owner - New Chef - Great Changes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

We've been going to this restaurant, which is part of the Royal Scot Hotel, for three years now and have always enjoyed it. It's not a trendy restaurant - just nice pleasant surroundings, and always good, reliable food. We sit by the window which overlooks gorgeous flowers and landscaping, and watch the horse drawn carriages clip clop by. Jonathan's has a large varied menu, and if you want something lighter for dinner, you can order off the lunch menu. The new owner, George (who had been one of the waiters before), has made changes to the menu, and hired a new chef. We've eaten there a few times since George took over, and each time we notice great changes - from the plating and new menu items, to the old menu items being updated. If you're looking for a trendy noisy place with young servers, this isn't the place for you. But if you're looking for a quieter place, with nice surroundings, good background music, friendly service, and good food - then this place is for you! The prices are very reasonable . . . Oh, and the breakfasts are the best!

“Great food/Great price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2012

Recently stumbled upon this restaurant upon a walk downtown with my wife. Restaurant was about half full which was nice as we don't like full house. Our server was very informative about the food and she was very pleasant. I ordered the half rack of lamb and it was melt in your mouth delicious! My wife ordered the seafood pasta with cream sauce. Very filling with lots of seafood in it. Reasonably priced food our bill came to about $60 with tip. I recommend this restaurant to all those in the area! I understand it is under new management now as well. Will definitely be frequenting this place on our nights out!
