My husband & I have just finished the most superb meal that we've had in a long while. I'm a vegetarian, hubby isn't . Menu choice-excellent, taste-outstanding, presentation & staff & service- fantastic. 😃

Lovely place to celebratory meal, they have a private function upstairs but they can also close off another part . Food is excellent and they do early bird evening offers.

Like to go here at least once a month I have never had a bad meal in here and have always found upstairs to have a relaxing ambience and the food is 1st class

This is a nice restaurant and the food is delicious but the portions were small, I like to get food that is filling as well as delicious - that is my only criticism.

Visited a few times since being recommended by friend. Find the food and the choice, and the early bird menu very good. The food is always well presented and find the staff to be pleasant. Love the tempura, first time I tried it thought it was amazing. Would recommend for a nice meal with family or friends.

Chose The Jefferson restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews - had to say we were pleasantly surprised. Food delicious and the staff were so welcoming and helpful. They were also flexible about food order which was great having children with us.
