Jacob's is my favorite steakhouse in the world. I've tried many others in Canada, the USA, Europe, and Asia but Jacob's remains my favorite of all times. The steak are AMAZING, Sides are wonderful, Tableside Caesar salad is fantastic. Service is impeccable. The only "problem"...i can find with this establishment is the price. I know, I know - you get what you pay for. However since I cannot afford to go there as often as I like, it remains a destination for birthdays, anniversaries, and other special occasions.More

Best steak I’ve had in Canada and virtually everything else equally good. Started with their famous Caesar Salad prepared tableside and it was as good as advertised. The salad had an amazing amount of complexity, especially for a salad. Very vibrant flavors. It was also...a huge portion. Followed it with a Wagyu striploin from Sekai Ranch. I had asked the waiter which Wagyu to go for and he enthusiastically recommended this one, was not at all disappointed. I have not had much Wagyu so can’t say how it compares but overall it was incredible. A lot of flavor and melted in my mouth. I also loved the creamed spinach, tasted more like gruyere than spinach, a big plus in my book. Also had the sautéed onion but that wasn’t as great as the other three dishes, not bad (and beautiful presentation) but not awesome. Also had excellent service, overall a great steak experience.More

I've been to Jacobs many times and it never ceases to amaze me. You'll always get a wonderfully cooked steak with great service. I must give a shout-out to our server, Samuel. He gave a great introduction and walkthrough of the menu to my colleagues...who were first timers. He also helped make a side dish into a halal friendly option for my colleague. As for the menu, you can skip the apps. They're nothing special and imho, they're overpriced and underwhelming. You go to Jacobs for the steak. I've eaten many different cuts but I was impressed to see them offering more interesting international cuts. My colleague and I decided to split two steaks, a traditional option and then a more artisanal option. I had a 24 oz bone-in ribeye from Arkansas which was absolutely amazing. The marbling was fabulous. It just melted in your mouth. They rendered the fat cap beautifully so it didn't have chewy bits of fat. It was aged for 55 days iirc. It had such a beautiful aroma. This was the traditional steak. The second steak was the highest grade of steak out of Scotland. The producer stamps the cow for authenticity purposes. I can't remember the name of the brand. We had the bone-in strip. It's not aged as long (30 days) since it's grass fed. So it has a bit more of a chew and it's less sweet. We liked it but the traditional steak was much better. For transparency purposes, I'm a ribeye guy. But I still think the meat itself didn't taste as good or have the same buttery texture as the traditionally raised ribeye from Kansas. We had the potato puree, tossed mushrooms with a olive oil and garlic sauce which Samuel hooked up since the original recipe included marsala wine. My colleague is Muslim and Samuel took care of it. We also had the duck fat fries. The sides were all delicious but the fries were the best. They were crispy on the outside and fluffy in the inside. For dessert, we ordered a 6 oz Australian 9+ marbling score fillet. It was very good but honestly, it's better to pay another $100 and get A5 from Japan. It's levels better than the Australian equivalent. There's just nothing that compares to an A5. It's the ultimate luxury in steaks and it actually lives up to the hype! One last thing, don't go to Jacobs if you're frugal or not comfortable paying $200+ on a meal. If you want to splurge and/or celebrate, there's no better place than Jacobs for steak. It's not even close. I've covered all of the top spots in Toronto and no one touches Jacobs. It's not just the steak, their service is amazing. They aren't snobby which is so refreshing given the price point of the restaurant. I saw people in track pants and others in suits. It's such a great vibe. Ask for the main dining room upstairs to get the real experience. The piano bar is ok but if it's an occasion, make sure to get the main dining area. We had a bottle of red wine which went very well with the steak. It was a California Cab Sauv.More

Having dined 4x over the past year, twice the ribeye ($300+!) was average at best. Most recently, no marbling (in our ribeye!), just a lump of meat. My husband called it a treadmill cow! Ceasar is excellent. Waiter totally misguided us. Sit at the bar...- the bartenders always know what's going on with the meat!More

A little challenging to find this place but definitely worth it. Excellent wine list. We had the table top Caesar and it was outstanding! Any kind of steak you want is cooked to perfection. The Smore‘s cheesecake was wonderful. Excellent service.

Jacob’s is top notch Casual modern upscale steak house that will not disappoint. Steak selection is ridiculous ranging from $90.00-$1250.00 for a steak if you want to try something unique and have money to burn. We kept it real Ribeye $95.00 Small filet $90.00 (...best ever ) Sides are extra but plentiful Caesar salad is made table side ( wow - just order it ) Wine selection is like the steaks - huge wine list - if you have the money to burn this is the place !! Although expensive - I still give it 5 stars Dress code - casual - it is not a traditional fine diner. Check the menu onlineMore

There was about 25 of us and we were in the private room I think called the wine cellar. Excellent staff, cocktails, dinner and wine. I don't know what the cost was like since the boss was treating all of us, but I think that...it would have been about $400 per person? The food is very, very good and we had 4 different meats to sample as apart of the meal. A lovely way to learn about steaks to see what you like the best.More
