The beet salad was well balanced - acid, salt and sweet. The ribs were so- so. Not smoked, just baked. The Mac and Cheese and Greens that came with them were better. The Mexican Chocolate Bread Pudding was awful.

Two years ago our experience at J 20 was one to rave about. This time, not so much. The food, although good, has lost some of its luster. Also, the portions seemed a bit skimpy given the price. As such, out next visit to the Washington DC area might exclude a visit to J 20. I will say though that they exceeded my expectations with regard to customer service.

We changed seats several times from a leaky a/c to a no a/c zone and then to a third spot, where we were forgotten about. Unfortunately we also had to send our drinks back as they were not good at all. I've been several other times where service was good and the food matched it. We must have hit a bad day.

This restaurant is in the Hotel Monaco in old town Alexandria, VA. Good hotel not so good restaurant. The restaurant is well appointed and has good service. The location is good. It all slides down hill after that. The food, a chicken salad sandwich to be specific, was awful. No flavor unless you like raw onion. The potatao salad was terrible. Made with a runny sauce of sour cream. The other person had a hamburger that was grade C. Okay, no great shakes.
Don't bust your budget here. Old Town has great restaurants and this is not one of them. Try Vermillion, Restaurant Eve, or Brabo to name three excellent places to eat. The food in Jackson 20 was so bad that the restaurant did not charge us for the chicken salad. That was decent, but hey, we were there for the food and not the refund!

Wow! It's been a while where I thoroughly enjoyed my whole dining experience! What great service by Marie and wonderful friends. Sunday Brunch at Jackson 20 is a must. Plenty of drink and tons of good food. Had a blast! Hope to do this again real soon. Semi reunion and was worth the wait.
