    Best fried chicken I’ve ever had. I wish the beer selection was a little more broad but the service was extremely friendly and the food was top notch. Second time I’ve been there and there will 100% be a third visit.

    Dude, the food is so damn good. Your loss if you don't eat here. Cocktails were great. They were understaffed on servers when we were there but our server was still awesome, knowledgeable, hustled and did not rush us. Chefs and bartenders all took time to say hello to us individually. HIGHLY recommended.

    Service was great. Had to reschedule or modify my reservations multiple times and they were very accommodating. Service was good and they checked in just enough to see if we needed anything and checked in with our thoughts on the food. Food was delicious had 2 half and half pizzas - one for vegetarians and one for the meat eaters. I liked the variety of choices we were able to try. Sweet Corn honey butter pizza and Bulgogi pizza are good choices to try. If you are looking for something spicy and want fried chicken their Buldak will hit the spot.

    We love JINBAR! Great ambience! Always incredible customer service. Love the menu concept We were truly so disappointed in the rice cakes being taken off the menu and the tacos. :( Our favourite two items to get when we eat there Sure hope you bring those items back!

    Made a reservation and when we arrived had to request seating in the dinning area as we didn’t want to sit in the bar lounge. I was informed we had to specify the dinning area when making the reservation under special requests ??? Portions were smaller than expected for the price. Food was ok

    Lovely room, chicken and crudo tasty, mango salad very small. We had listed it was a birthday celebration in our booking, sadly the service didn’t match the event. We sat with dirty dishes for quite some time, until I believe a kitchen staff member cleared when our last dish arrived. No dessert (birthday??) offered, nor coffee, had to seek server for second drink.

    Phenomenal experience. Chicken is amazing! Drinks are great but a bit on the stronger side(not always a bad thing), I loved the old fashioned twist called Old Boy, my partner found her drink a bit stronger. Overall awesome place! Will be returning for that Buldak pizza again.

    Brought a friend here for her birthday, it was perfect. Our server was polite and helpful. Every item we had from the menu was delicious - we had the jalapeño soy fried chicken (a must try), the pork dumplings, the pounded cucumber and the cauliflower. The ambiance was lovely. I will definitely be back!

    Tried the tasting menu that ends Mar 26. Great value but now I need to come back! The sample of chicken made me want much more. The fried chicken is amazing and worth a trip! The ahi tuna crudo and the short ribs were also awesome but I am fixated on the fried chicken. Beautiful old building, great ambiance and pretty good service -it became less good as the place got busier but that is pretty understandable. We got there early when it was quiet - it was hopoing by the time we left. Also, some pretty good cocktails.

    The cocktails were definitely the highlight of the meal! We tried 3 different cocktails, and each of them were wonderful. Would absolutely recommend getting a fun cocktail with dinner. That's not to say that the food wasn't delicious, because it was! Great fried chicken, and we were able to taste multiple sauces by ordering them on the side (shout out to the waiter that suggested this!). And we don't typically order a salad at restaurants, but decided to change it up this time, and we were definitely rewarded with the delicious Broccoli Waldorf salad! It was a great dish to go between the delicious pork dumplings and the fried chicken, and gave us a little refresher during the meal. The service was also wonderful, and the food came out very quickly. Overall, it was a great experience, and I would definitely go back and try some more menu items!

    The fried chicken here is special. Deep rich flavour, juicy and crispy. I will be coming back for more. Food comes out quick. Very efficient. The overall feel of Jinbar is inviting and comfortable. Have a nice dinner out without feeling the need to overdress. I really like this restaurant.

    It was our first time visit jinbar. Loved the ambiance, the music was a little too loud and the selection was not what we were expecting. Food was outstanding - however it took us about 20 min to track down our server to get the bill to leave.
