All Jacmel Inn needs to do is demand excellence from their staff. Over the past year it does not seem the service is up to what you expect for the price you pay. I desire great service and do not mind paying for the experience. Management is not holding the saff to the standards they had at one time. The food quaility seems to have suffered also. Bring back the old Jacmel Inn where you expected a great dinning experience and expected to pay for it.

The atmosphere is always great. We love the bar area and look forward to enjoying the patio when the weather warms up. I've heard it's pet friendly on the patio but i'll confirm before I bring our 160 lb great dane for lunch. Just recently had dinner. The scallops and risotto were amazing. My husband had a steak - it was mediocre at best. Our waitress was goofy - no personality and didn't really know or explain the menu. No great detial on specials, etc. Not the level of service you expect from a $200 meal for two people. We will be back - but my husband has decided no more steaks

We went there for a quiet dinner. We both ordered the steak medium. After we waited an hour for the food, the steak came out and was very well done. It was so tough it was hard to eat it. We informed the waitress who told us that the chef had a difficult time getting steaks cooked correctly. She did offer to have two more cooked but since it took an hour to get the first ones we declined.
The hostess stopped by to check on our meal and we told her about the steaks. She too informed us that the chef had a hard time getting steak orders done correctly. The question I have is if they have a chef who can't cook steaks, why don't they train him or get another chef? If they know it is a pattern with him and steaks, I would have been happier if they told us when we ordered them.
The fact that we had two different people tell us about the chef and the issue with him cooking steaks does not speak well for the staff. I have never had anyone tell me their chef didn't know how to cook.
The only thing I can say about our experience is that the salad and green beans were very good. We were not charged for the steaks which was good because we only took 2 bites of them. I would proceed with caution when going there for a steak.

Overall, this is a great place to eat. We occasionally have a less than perfect experience, but keep coming back. The food is usually very good, and service is generally good, too. Sunday brunch is very nice here.
