Jar sucks!

This once excellent restaurant has really fallen down and needs to shape up or be put out of its misery. Someone needs to tell the receptionists that this is no longer a really hot restaurant allowing them to mistreat customers and act so disdainful. Waiters should do their jobs and not just be looking for their next acting gig.

BLAH!

Sorry, but we had just had a bad experience at JAR. We were part of Blackboard Eats so we weren't sure if that was part of the reason. To start with all the blackboard eats people were sat in a cluster like the rear of an airplane.The food had very little flavor. My sirloin was tough and the ""Signature Pot Roast"" was fatty. For a $160 total, it was a HUGE let down. Insult to injury was that the chef had little to say to us in response. We won't be back!

Excellent food and service

I have been wanting to dine at Jar for quite a while and my boyfriend surprised me for my birthday the other night with a reservation here. We shared the porterhouse for two - amazing! Our server was completely on the ball...very nice and very helpful. She was great with wine recommendations and even brought us a taste of two to try first. The steak was fantastic; cooked perfectly (medium-rare) and we got the summer squash as a side (special that night). The wine that our server recommended was great too. I had a really nice evening and would definitely go back.

Easily a top 20 restaurant in LA

I was a bit peeved we weren't seated for our reservations promptly. Waiting 30 minutes makes one wonder what's the point of making reservations. We would have been mollified with an apology but none was issued.

However, the food is good but you have to pick carefully otherwise you could get stuck with a bad meal. I had the char siu pork chop which was amazingly tender and juicy. But I felt the pot roast with two tiny pieces of meat was a rip. The lamb shank was worth its price but you may need to ask for salt.

Sides are great especially the garlic fries. I'd skip the duck fried rice though.

Desserts and wine were also highlights.

As good as it gets...

Although titled as ?just another restaurant? - I think it's far from it. A small restaurant that seems unpretentious to me on Beverly Blvd. Serves good steaks without the ?LA attitude and price tag?! I'm a budget-ista and a $35 rib eye steak doesn't seem that expensive to me. Cooked just right, it's always fulfilling and I get to take my leftovers home! There fries are so tasty - yeah, they're fries, but they're thin, crispy and delicious! I love the feel of this restaurant, makes for a great date. Has those old-glamorous, lounge-feel to it.

Delicious dining experience

I love the sleek 70s swing pad decor. The bar was beautiful, well stocked, well staffed. Cocktails all made with fresh fruit juices, small-label spirits (like Hangar One Vodka)... and delicious.
Now I'm not one (usually) for comfort food, but I ordered the p*t roast (something that at home I would never dream of making or eating). It was juicy, tender and simple. But before that, we shared some items off the ""Monday Mozzarella Menu."" Huge portions. Incredibly flavorful and unusual concoctions. I especially like the Stracciatella (the creamiest mozzarella variety) with an herb and celery ""salad"". I've never tasted anything like it.
Wasn't totally impressed with the dinner sides (a bit rich for my taste... in flavor and price I'm afraid).
But our server was absolutely lovely, attentive, and thoughtful in her answers when asked ""what would YOU order?""
Will I go again? You betcha.
I love restaurants that give my taste buds a new experience without being pretentious or over-priced. And JAR (stands for Just Another Restaurant) delivered just that.

The $17 bloody mary

I stopped in on a recent Sunday afternoon to grab a quick drink. The ""house"" vodka is Ketel One, which is good, but a relatively small and generally unimpressive bloody mary cost $17. Let me say that again, a bloody mary is $17. Now, I've lived in NYC, Chicago, and been to many fine properties outside the US, and have NEVER seen a $17 bloody mary. Just ridiculous.

The menu sounded great....too bad the preparation wasn't

24 hours after having dinner at Jar, I am still incensed at the price I paid for the dinner I received last night. I have no problem paying upscale prices for an upscale dining experience. But when you are paying $42 for a Dover Sole entree, and $16 for a side dish of chanterelle mushrooms, you expect the food to be out of this world. It wasn't. The fish was overcooked and seemed lonely resting on a plate all by itself. The mushrooms were tough and their flavor was ordinary. My companion ordered the pork chop at the suggestion of the waiter and had to send it back because it was so tough. His $10 purple yam/creme fraiche/chive side dish turned out to be a whole yam, baked and split in half with a dollop of creme and a pinch of chive, something an amateur cook could easily replicate at home. I don't usually write reviews but have expectations when going to restaurants of this ilk that ALL of their dishes should be worth the high prices they are now charging. I walked out the restaurant last night feeling ripped off, thinking of all of the other great restaurants that I could have chosen to eat at.
