This restaurant served me and my date what is now the best steak I’ve ever had. The service was outstanding, from the greeter, to the person who personally made our Caesar’s Salad which is a must try for any first timer. The drinks were great, much to my surprise the James Bond Casino Royals Martini Vesper Lind is actually on the menu, a must order for any fan of the Daniel Craig films, and I also recommend going with the aged steaks first before diving into the pricer Wagyu steaks of which I myself intend to try the second time around. I ordered a medium steak of which I now regret, I should’ve had more faith in this establishments ability and went with medium rare out of the gate but a good steak is hard to find most of the time. At Jacobs a good steak is everywhere in this restaurant. You literally get your moneys worth. Every dollar is worth it.

Looking for an exceptional steak meal, we picked Jacobs as a result of online reviews. We have eaten in a few top-rated steak houses in and outside of Canada, and Jacobs will be remembered as one at the very top. Our server Andrew, was exceptionally well versed in all aspects of meat production and cooking, and provided much insight and guidance in helping us pick from the menu. All of the attendants took amazing care of us without hovering, or making us feel rushed. We were pampered and felt very appreciated for eating there. Yes it is pricey but well worth the splurge when you are looking for an outstanding dining experience.

Steak was good quality meat. But not too juicy, on the dry side. Service was great. But forgot my birthday note. No happy birthday on my dessert plate. Will come again to try different kind of beef.

Steak and service were amazing. Sides were pretty bad. Ambiance wasn't what I was expecting. People came in dressed in shorts and t shirts. It got a little loud at certain points of the evening; music could have been louder. Overall a good experience but I like Harbour Sixty better.

I’d first discovered Jacobs via instagram and it did not fail to deliver on expectations. Our sever was fantastic - knowledgeable and attentive both in explaining the varieties of steaks/grades of beef as well as navigating the wine menu. The steak was absolutely one of the best I’ve ever had and we will certainly come again soon to further explore the menu.

Food size was very large, two starter and a steak is more than enough for two people. The Caesar salad is very well- known, but I was too too salty that day which is a little disappointing. Everything else is wonderful, especially the service was the best.

Everything was amazing! We were seated immediately upon entering the restaurant, our waiter gave us a tour of the meat room and explained every detail of the menu for us. The best part of our dining experience was the young lady Chelle (spelling) that took our infant son for a walk around the restaurant when our food arrived so that we could enjoy our meal for a bit. The whole staff truly go above and beyond. Everyone was super pleasant and I can’t wait to return to Toronto to eat here again. This place is my new favorite!

They go the extra mile. One issue, for me anyway, we were in a smaller room and it got a bit noisy. The noise did come from other diners though. Food is great, atmosphere is awesome.

Our experience at Jacobs & Co. Steakhouse was excellent. We went there to celebrate my wife’s birthday. We had their caesar salad and their wagyu beef. It was very delicious. Also, near the end of our meal, they surprised us with a small desert dish for our wife’s birthday! Overall, their food and service is right on point.
