From pea tendrils to duck fried rice to butterscotch pudding, Jar's spin on familiar mainstays is inventive and satisfying. The atmosphere is upscale and aesthetically soothing. You can actually hear yourself speak to table mates, and the more the merrier, as avid sampling of main courses and sides is suggested. Try the crab deviled eggs to start and take it from there!

Very well prepared braised meats and grilled steaks, a la carte pricing. For me, the room is a bit dull, but quiet and nice on cold evening. I know everyone really likes the room, but why is still escaping me. We ate early and had good service, and a nice wine recommendation.

Repetitive, uninspired. Good steak and pot roast, but everything else is boring. Nice room. Good cocktails. But if you are looking for interesting, fresh, local CA food, look elsewhere.

booked a 9.30pm table on a weekend night and got there a little early for a pre-dinner drink. we've been here before so knew that it would be buzzy which it was.
No table till nearly 10pm (I could see the maitre'd frantically checking for empties and re-laying glassware herself) - a table was found for us in what seemed like the forgotten corner in the shadow of the partition to the entrance door.
I love the food here, the pot roast and chicken were as excellent as ever as were the salads but what soured the evening was the less than attentive service from start to finish - not a way to attract repeat business.
our main server was busy trying to deal with a substantial portion of the restaurant which led to more inexperienced servers bringing us the entrees - no explanation of dishes and therefore no wow factor - pointed this all out politely to our server Kevin (who I felt was doing a great job but was simply trying to do too much) but he could only offer platitudes where I would expect the maitre'd to man up and to come over and talk to us... but no - sorry Jar, you're going to have to organise yourselves way better than this to get me back in hurry - shame

Jar has an extensive salad menu and great cocktails. Go off dinner hours for a better service experience. If you're in the area, it's worth a try.
