    Nice place, and food was just ok. We have a lot of good food in Vancouver. For that price we have a lot better choices. By no means was the food bad. It just was something I could find at any cafe and bistro for 1/2 the price. Presentation was nice and the staff were very nice.

    Took husband and three kids to the Resturant. We are very impressed with the cleanliness, the service and the food presentation. Their high chair is the cleanest high chair I ever seen. Food came fast and tasty. The home made macaroons are bigger than normal size, lightly sweeten and has creamy fillings. Truffle fries is a must order.

    The duck breast is very tasty. I like the Earl Grey mousse cake which is a signature dessert. All food are good except the octopus which is too soft and cold.

    Disappointed that the Dungeness crab dish was not available as 2 out of 3 of us had chosen that from the small menu. But the food we did get was excellent. I would certainly recommend your restaurant.

    Jess Restaurant is like a hidden Oasis. The whole experience was amazing and our server truly made my husbands Birthday dinner memorable as he was funny, so helpful and recommended some amazing choices. The food was absolutely amazing so hats off to the chef. The decor (even the ladies room) was so “extra” in the best way. If you haven’t been you need to go and experience this wonderful restaurant for yourself. The tenderloin and the pork are still in my mind and I’m wishing to go back. Thanks again Jess Restaurant for making our evening so memorable

    The restaurant seems very lowkey on the outside, but a gorgeous blue peacock on the inside. Staff were immediately welcoming, and the macarons and opera cakes in the slightly inconspicuous dessert display had me grabbing a business card for a mass order. Table for 6 was a bit crowded due to the nice chairs. Food was fresh, good quality, and came in very good time. Really like the steak selection here. Not ridiculous price per portion like some restaurants.

    Food quality and taste was outta this world good. Had the feature appy with some menu appys and they were amazing. Main course and desserts were fantastic. Good portion size, not too small, not too big. Got the appy sliders and fries for the kids and they loved it too. Staff were very knowledgeable and welcoming. 6/5 stars.

    we went for a birthday dinner for a good friend. the food was delicious and the atmosphere was good. although i had indicated it was a birthday dinner, i was unable to get any happy birthday decor for the cake, but the waiter was kind enough to arrange a candle for the cake and put it on the house, which was very touching.

    We dined Easter Sunday brunch. The food tasted delicious and the presentation was excellent. We had 4 two tier Benedicts . You only get one egg on a small toast point with lots of other sweet and savory pieces. Would not recommend this dish for men as it was not near enough food. I saw some other tables that ordered entrees and the dishes were substantial. My daughter and I felt we had more than enough food, the boys did not. I would come again but order differently.

    As I have home within walking distance and used to have my office in Kerrisdale I frequented Jess’s from the start. It was a bit rough in the beginning as they flounder their footing. The Duck Breast was amazing. The staff were amazing - with deep professional background in hospitality..excellent cocktails. The tableware better than the highest quality Paris Restaurant Then Covid. Closed to dine in, staff laid off. Then the primary cook leaves, menu changes, execution deteriorated, not same quality of staff. Last time when in last fall - better but still not as good as formerly. Last night - clearly back on track. Excellent service and food quality first rate. French 75 cocktail was superb, the scallop’s out of this world, foi gras, pasta Vongole, Steak all done to perfection. And their remarkable cheese cake - which never faltered- a lovely finish. The only reason not 5 stars on Service; the maître de. Every other time I’ve been recognized as a regular patron. Often seated in the booth. Often I couldn’t care, but as my fiancé had flown in from our home in Alberta and we were off to Cirque (so would be out of the Restaurant quickly), I requested a booth to make it special night. I was told none of the 4 were available as they had large parties. Well in the hour and 15 minutes we were there - he seated two couples who came in after us and one booth remained empty!
