First off, something needs to be said about the service.
I have never been to a place that has such incredible service, the people are so well educated on the cuts of meat they are serving, the wine pairings that should go with each cut, the proper glass to use for said wine, everything was top notch. These people could spot your glass getting low from across the room, whisk over and re-fill it before you even know it. Very friendly, courteous, everything, truly could not say better things about the staff.

The food is nothing to scoff at either, My Fiance and I had the Redtop Wagyu Tenderloin and a 14oz Ribeye from Guelph ON. Both were expertly cooked, perfect medium rare for me, edge to edge pink with that crisp char on the exterior, and perfect medium for my SO.

Our sides were great, the mushroom risotto had a great creamy, buttery finish, and the duck fat french fries were crisp, with a light interior, perfect accompaniment for our proteins.

The Caesar salad, made table side....I would go back just for this. Fun to watch being prepared, so good you don't want it to end when eating it.

All in all it was everything I hoped for, couldn't have been happier with out experience, and again, the servers and service, these people deserve a lot of praise. Amazing time.

Service was not to Jacobs’ standard. My observation is that experiences in the back room are sub par relative to the main area. Steak was served somewhat cold and needed to be reheated, the wrong glassware was used and had to be corrected, cavatelli wasn’t cooked properly, wine wasn’t topped off when required... we just felt neglected overall. It may be the case that Jacobs is resting on the laurels of their typically excellent steak but neglecting service, side dishes, attentiveness, etc. I hope this trend is corrected.

Everything in the meal was great, from food to service. The only disappointing thing was they took the creme brulee out of the menu which I get Everytime at steak houses and I feel is a staple.

This has to be the best restaurant I’ve been to. Everything from the food to the service to the atmosphere is just perfect. Can’t wait until the next time I go! Their attention to detail and their ability to almost know what you need when you need is incomparable.

We ordered one expensive cut and one on the lower range. The expensive cut was absolutely unreal. The lower grade was not impressive and you can get better value for your money at less expensive steak houses. Excellent service.

We celebrated our 11th anniversary at Jabobs syakehouse.
The food was without a doubt amazing and beyond expectations. Service was exceptionally great. Tiny bit if set back was flies which I terminated.
But I guess if you are seat right next to the bathroom, could happen.

My father and I decided to try out this place after reading a lot of positive reviews. I had high expectations but I can happily say that my expectations have been exceeded. Our server Jasper, was very attentive and accommodating. The rib eye was cooked exactly to my liking and tasted phenomenal. The duck fat fries were decent and the sorbet was very delicious. We were each given a chocolate muffin to take home which was a pleasant gift. I truly recommend giving Jacobs & Co. a visit as you will not be disappointed.

The service and atmosphere were great, but the steak was not impressive. We got the Canadian 24oz ribeye that was aged 60 days, and it's not juicy nor flavorful. Definitely not worth the $156 price tag.

The service and the food were phenomenal; we had A5 Kobe Black, Caesar Salad which was prepared tableside, among other sides. The owner came to our table more than once and wished my dining partner a happy birthday. Servers were friendly and very attentive; our server was able to answer any questions we had regarding the food. We were also offered a quick look at the room where they age the beef at the end of our meal. I will definitely be returning when I get the chance.

We had a late dinner for two. We had a nice table in the corner. Typical steakhouse decor - dark, wood paneling, etc. The upholstered chairs were different and comfortable. It was too dark for photos and much too loud for conversation. We could hear the two business dinners happening around us better than each other. I had trouble hearing our waiter as he explained their selections to us.
We had the casear salad. It is big enough for two and as others have mentioned it was not overly creaming and was heavy on garlic and vinegar but we liked it. The popovers were also good but I liked the quality of them more than the taste. My partner liked them enough to have almost two though. We got the creamed spinach which we both liked. Cooked well and not soaking in cream. We ordered an aged 32oz rib eye (medium) to share. Might have been too much for most people but it was good for us although we had no room for the massive desserts we saw at other tables. The steak was good but did not seem that special to us. My cocktail was expensive but well made. The service was excellent from all staff. Because we were celebrating a birthday they brought out a tray with a candle in a raspberry and two cookies. It was nice and my partner appreciated that there was no singing. It was just enough for him to mark the day. We also recieved chocolate chip espresso cookies (for breakfast) upon leaving. It was a nice goodbye (and tastier than mints) but they were very sweet - much better for dessert than breakfast. Overall it was a very nice meal in an ok space but I'm not sure it was a good value and if we'd return.

Food and service outstanding as always. One minor issue worth addressing would be the AC/ventilation in the dining room......particularly on hot days and when the kitchen is operating at capacity.
