We went to Jacobs for our 49th anniversary and they made this a very special evening. The service and attention to detail was spectacular. Food was delicious, everything from the wine, entre and we totally enjoyed a Caesar salad was prepared tableside, which we haven't seen in years. We had a delightful evening and would definitely recommend Jacobs to friends.

Consistently excellent. We always have an outstanding meal, and the staff are attentive but not obtrusive.
Best steakhouse ( and one of the best restaurants, period,) in Toronto.

Not the incredible experience I had hoped for with my son. We had ordered the Kobe beef and had really expected much more but found the less expensive prime rib far better. Not a bad place but could have been a bit better.

My boyfriend and I went for our 1 year anniversary. The host, waiter and even the owner(!) came by to wish us a happy anniversary, all in a span of 10 minutes - which was cute and hilarious. The complementary prosecco for us to toast the occasion was a nice touch. I had a great 2015 Cab Sauv our waiter picked for me, and my boyfriend had a bottled beer they classily pour into a glass for him.

The table-side ceasar was excellent and a treat to watch being prepared. Add in the white anchovies!

We split the 14oz PEI Ribeye and it was the best steak we'd ever had. It came with three salt and three sauce choices to play around with, but our waiter said it was seasoned to perfection already - he was right! We shared the gratin (like a deep dish scalloped potatoes) and rapini. Both were fine but nothing special.

We were too full for dessert, but they sent out a plate with "Happy Anniversary" in the nicest chocolate calligraphy I've ever seen, and two delicious little chocolates.

The GM came over to say goodbye and wish us well, and told us the story of how Jacob's began. He called it the "Jacob's family" which made sense. Although high-end, it definitely has a "where everyone knows your name" kind of vibe. If you could afford to be a regular here, you'd make lifetime friends in the waitstaff.

Also, they started us out with a warn bread popover fresh from the oven, and sent us off with a delicious breakfast muffin for the next morning - perfect with coffee, I wish we had more!

All in all, it was fun. I'm glad we went and would go again. Had my eye on the oysters Rockefeller.

Service was amazing and food was incredible. The price is pretty steep for the average person. A couple sore points: one, there were cuts of beef on the menu that were sold out. They could’ve told us ahead of time so we didn’t have to rethink things on the menu. Two, that night we went the AC wasn’t strong enough. It was very warm and also the dining room we were in was really loud and hard to talk.

Our waiter Steve was excellent, and so was the support staff. I don't know what Australian wagyu usually costs, so it may have been a normal price, but it was still expensive.

A terrific dining experience in every way: from the easy-going but very attentive service to a killer-perfect martini, a steak that was definitely worth the price and the greatest baked potato I have ever seen or had, all in a very comfortable, quiet low key, high scale environment. I loved the experience.

Second experience and not a bit disappointed by anything related, whether it is food, service or else. Yes, prices are upscale but this isn't your everyday restaurant neither, at least not for the average citizen. I have had Wagyu beef cuts on both my visits and the choice and variety of selections and cuts available are truly surprising. Clearly for beef lovers, but it was worth every dollar spent. Kudos to the staff as well who help a great deal in making every visit an experience to remember!

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 Lynd 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 pricier 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.
