J & S was one of our favorite places to go when visiting Hot Springs. After the fire at the original location, we wanted to try it again. It is now in a strip mall and is totally different which is to be expected. We were greeted by the owner, Jamal and he seated us in the bar until our table was ready. The food was excellent and the wine good. Service was slow because it was a Saturday night on a holiday weekend and it seemed that they were understaffed. Aaron did a beautiful job trying to keep up with too many tables. It was also noisy and we had a hard time hearing each other. It just wasn't the same......missed the atmosphere at the old place.
