Have been here a few times now, always a great experience. Service is above and beyond with knowledgeable staff. Seems like the entire crew works as a team providing the ultimate dining experience. Food has been on point each time we have come here - amazing, amazing taste. Would highly recommend.

We booked a month in advance but were given an undesirable table staring right into the meat freezer. It was a table for 5 but we were only 3. When we asked to be moved more into the centre of the restaurant we were told they were full and this is the only table left in the main dining area.
They did however make up for it by moving us to a more desirable table as soon as it was available and the service after that was outstanding.

quality food and quality service!
Not cheap!
One of my friends steak was a bit overdone other than that the food was outstanding.
Prices are not for the faint hearted.
A decent ribeye steak will cost around 70 Canadian dollars - we were there on holiday.

Unfortunately our experience at Jacob & Co was less than ideal. Our steaks came out warm as if they had been sitting for 15 mins before they were brought to our table! Our server offered to take them back to the kitchen to be re-heated but the damage was done. The manager graciously offered to take the cost of the steaks off our bill which we accepted. This restaurant is highly over rated and we will not be back and would not recommend to any friends!

We have been regular customers for 6 years, always great service and great food! I personally have referred people here because I respected the concept,embraced in this restaurant, of serving amazing steak in Canada. This was the first time we have been disappointed! We love prime beef cooked on the bone. Tonite was off! TBone was ordered medium rare, delivered medium+ and was already sliced! Clearly they knew it was over!
Our server gave us options, recook steak or carry on! Decided to carry on as were getting full! Side vegetables were excellent, Caesar salad was excellent! Steak was ruined!!!
We were comped 2 glasses of port and charged full price for the steak! Probably won’t be back!

Very disappointed!

Everything was perfect. Yes, it is very pricy but it is worth it. I’ve been here twice so far. The food, drink, service, music and atmosphere... everything was so satisfying.
When I go to the restaurant like this, what I most focus on is service. The quality of food is something that has to be(and obviously) good and something already proven. What takes the restaurant to the next level is the quality of service. The hospitality of servers and other staffs who interact with guests takes important part of measuring the quality of service, but what makes real difference is in details.
I’ve noticed the host intentionally slowed down as she walked us to the table and checked us after the stairs. I’m not sure if it was for giving us time to see the display of steaks aging in the room or just making sure she wasn’t too ahead of us, but I can definitely feel that they are taking care of guests. Even at the front gate they warn us with the last step. I can see that they are trying to make guests feel welcomed and staffs are paying attention.
Server had the full knowledge with the menu and explained every details as it comes. He asked us how are we doing at the right time with polite and appropriate attitude. Other staffs were also really helpful and the service was amazing. I can see they are well-trained and working as one team.
The food was fantastic. They were all perfectly seasoned. Nothing was too salty or blend(Surprisingly, it is quite common mistakes that fancy restaurants tend to make). They served three different salts but I didn’t really need them. Also I didn’t expect the portion would be this generous. The popovers and muffins were also great.
I was sitting at the bar alone on my second visit. The bartender was friendly and helpful. He tried to make cocktails to my preferences. I had a good conversation and he even told me he can grab a taxi for me.
I really enjoyed the times at Jacobs steakhouse and definitely going back.

Service was absolutely good.

Steak was lower than my expectations. Honestly, it’s not better than other steakhouse based on the much higher price. But the sides dish were tasty.

Highly disappointing. First they didn’t have any bone in ribeye’s. Service was average when one would expect a restaurant of this “caliber” to be spectacular. My ribeye was over cooked and I was never asked if it was cooked to my liking. Last, the minimum tip % was 18% which seems unreasonable when an everage meal without wine is over $100pp.

Liked the food. My boyfriend had their celtic ridge farm ribeye and I had the Bass since I'm not a steak person. The Caesar salad is a must-have! We both loved it. Best I've had and I would highly recommend the Flourless almond and coconut cake!
The bass was ok.
It was louder than I expected for a Wednesday night.
The service was good but a little snooty to be honest.
Overall the experience was good though.
Would recommend they have parking available for customers and/or validated parking.

Unfortunately when we arrived for our anniversary dinner the neighbourhood had just suffered a power outage and Jacob's was not able to prepare any food. We were at a loss as to what to do but the staff stepped up and made arrangements for us at their sister restaurant. They even had someone personally walk us over. In the end we still had a fantastic time. Thanks Jacob's for saving our evening!

It was so amazing and the wagyu beef from japan is a must! Be prepared for a hefty bill. For two : which included 4 shrimp cocktail, 4 oysters, Caesar salad made table side, 4 oz A5 wagyu from japan , 6oz lean wagyu from japan plus almond cake and sorbet = 546. There were a few drinks in there too.

Still amazing experience and will do again
