    A little confusing they only offered “experience” booking with an additional booking fee but then, there is also another link offering a normal OpenTable booking.

    Not the best value in terms of portions. My tenderloin was just a 7oz meat and a couple veggies for 58$. However it was a nice ambiance and successful evening none the less.

    The servers were very concerned when we mentioned there was a member of our party with anaphylaxis to peanuts. They checked with the kitchen and confirmed they are a peanut free restaurant with only a jar of peanut butter. They checked on us during our meal to make sure we were ok and the food was good. Water was refilled quite a few times and the cutlery and plates changed as well. The ambience is outstanding with the chandeliers and the blue backlighting, and the plexiglass panels between tables for social distancing have the most intricately designed metal supports.

    The food is fantastic. But the service is what really made our evening special. Adam is a great host who made some spectacular suggestions for us. We will be returning for sure! We loved the Burrata Salad, Beef Short Ribs, Earl Grey Mousse Cake, and the Macarons!

    lowlight - bread plate was not great. bread was colder and cornbread on the dry side. wish the dessert selection was more interesting (not just pastries) highlight - portions were generous and entrees were delicious (seafood vongole & soy miso sable fish) would come back again to try more items.

    it was beautiful design and i loved the chairs. the fries were amazing same with the bread and charcuterie board. the ribs were a bit bland, should add some more flavour to it to make it more savoury. should add more spices to it and for my own preference i think it should be a bit more cooked ! the rest of the dish was delicious!

    For a restaurant that charges top notch prices, the food and service was mediocre. However, the star of this establishment was the ambience and atmosphere.

    A must try! Great experience, I’d highly recommend Jess’. A truly exceptional wine selection, polished cocktails and a fine attention when it comes to details from the service to plating onward. There were so many items on the menu we wanted to try and everything we did order was impressive. We drove from the North Shore to try this restaurant and would definitely recommend it.

    Wonderful! Best French 75 cocktails ever. Matthew recognizes as we were seated and remembered that I’m a fan of his work. Adam provided seamless service. Everything was prompts and served hot. The scallops Motoyaki and out of this world. Worth the visit alone. The Linguini Vognoli was perfectly cooked.it’s been too long since we were there - we won’t wait as long next time!
