“Jaxx Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

Has an upscale feel, but reasonable prices. I got the pepper steak for lunch ($25) and loved it. It was cooked perfectly. The atmosphere was pretty cozy. I liked that they had mouthwash available in the restroom. It's nice to freshen up after a meal. I would recommend for a date.

“Excellent in Every Way”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2012

We've been going to Jaxx Cafe since it's opening in the mid-80's. It's still excellent. My husband proclaimed that his steak was the best he's ever eaten, and he's eaten plenty of them. My rack of lamb was also wonderful, as was the service. It's pricey, but you get what you pay for. Still an attractive dining room as well.

“Excellent northeastern restaurant and bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

Jaxx has a great ambiance, superb service, and a broad menu in a quiet setting. There is a Chicago style bar, but it is separate from the dining area. Steaks and seafood are the specialties and all we have tried were superb in quality and presentation. From the street you might not realize what a gem it is. For a fine, semi-formal night out, this is a great choice!

“Good, but a little plain”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2012

The food was good enough. We split our steak dinner, and the chef cut it lenthwise, vs. from top to bottom, so we had a VERY thin steak on our plates. Odd. Otherwise generally an OK dinner, but there is a lot of better competition in the Addison area.

“Wonderful food but the temp. & smell of smoke might keep us from returning”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2012

This was our 1st time to JAXX & the food was wonderful! We started with Lobster Bisque & Bruschetta. My husband had the peppercorn steak & I had the steak Oscar. Both were cooked perfectly & everything tasted amazing.We had made a reservation on their website which was very easy.
The restaurant, unfortunately, like so many others, was FREEZING, which can ruin a nice night quickly.
The other thing that was super strange in this day & age is that you can still smoke in the bar. Our table was near the bar & all we could smell the entire time was smoke :( You could smell the smoke as soon as you entered the restaurant too. The smoke smell alone will probably keep us from bringing friends here. It's too bad they still let people smoke indoors.
