Polite hostess, excellent waiter, stellar service, and really wonderful tasting food. From lobster bisque to shrimp bisque to mouth watering entrees. Desert was delicious. AMbience was calm, comfortable, and enjoyable. Would certainly go back.

We held a business dinner for 10 last week. They put us in a private room (it was big enough for twice as many people but we had it to ourselves). That worked out well as we could talk pretty freely about work. The waitress was friendly but not very attentive. She'd disappear for long periods of time which was quite awkward at the beginning as we had questions on the wine list and menu. The wine list seemed a bit pricey (but I'm not from Ft Collins) but was extensive. Ignoring price, they had some good wines.

We ordered a wide range of food (appetizers and entrees) - all the appetizers were good and everyone seemed pleased with their entrees. Unlike the wines, the food was all reasonably priced for a somewhat nicer restaurant. I would return.

I've been wanting to go to this restaurant for a few months and we finally did last Saturday night. The ambiance was nice, great music and awesome food! I had the sea bass, my husband had the mix grill and both were wonderful! We took our son and his wife, and both had wonderful meals. The only negative was a guest that was drinking in the bar...she was sooooo loud that it made the place very noisy. When she left with her people it was lovely!!!! I will definitely go back.

Jay's did a decent job with brunch. Very nice lamb, good ham, nice selection of salads and a small but filling selection of desserts. The highlights were a variety of eggs cooked to order and the blueberry bread pudding. Service was prompt and friendly. All in all a good option if you are looking for a brunch location.

Terrible food for VERY expensive prices, that was our experience at Jay's Bistro last weekend. The place has a great ambiance and nice Wine list, but our dinner was horrible. We both ordered the Spanish Paella, It looked and tasted like white rice swimming in can chicken broth...with small pieces of chicken in it. There were about 4 mussels, 2 shrimp and 2 small slices of chorizo sausages in it. I know that the color should at least look a bit yellow because Saffron is the main spice used, but there was no color to it at all and no flavor from any type of seasoning. We will not be going to Jay's again anytime soon.
