We went here as a group of 3 couples for an evening to chat and visit. The welcome was warm and friendly and our table was ready.
Our server knew the menu and wine list. He made great recommendations for sharing appetizers, entrees and wine.
Traditional Italian options served with a little twist to modernize but not distort the original.
Enjoy!

I believe we have dined here five or six times and I haven't reviewed. I think (maybe) it's because I don't want everyone to find out about it! You must reserve (on weekends anyway) as It is always filled. That said, after several evenings here I can definitely say that the food is superb, the value is excellent, the service impeccable and we have had a great meal each and every time.

The prices are similar (maybe even less) than comparable chain restaurants such as Il Fornello but the food, service and atmosphere especially are much much better.

On our anniversary, my husband mentioned to the server and we were offered a free dessert which is the only time I have had dessert but it was excellent too.

Went with wife for an anniversary dinner. We had seafood linguine (8/10) and Orzo (8/10). Food was great, portions were reasonable. Service was quick and attentive.

Ambiance is on the upscale side, mature crowd, small but nice location. Parking was a bit difficult and area was a bit dark.

Funny enough, the Olive oil for the bread was outstanding (!!)

With (good) wine and a shared entree (Calamari) was a normal price for a 2ppl Dinner.

First visit to Jac's after passing by many times and we found out why this Kerr Street restaurant is very busy - in fact empty tables were being turned over at a rapid rate though it was nice to see there was no pressure on anyone eating with good gaps between courses. All appetizers and meals were well received and all around a pleasant evening. Fish dishes were made with fresh fish and all entrees were easily enough to eat. A couple of small things - the risotto was good though lacked seasoning and the baked Brie slices were very thin and mostly the breaded coating. Would definitely go back again. Reservations required to get a table.

Great food! nice amiance especially the back room where we dined for a girls night out!
The server was very attentive and pleasant. We were just disappointed that you didn't offer wine corking there because somebody had told us that which must have been missed understood. That would be nice if you can offer that but in all it was a fun night with tasty food.
