We went to J and S because we were recommended by the hotel we were staying at and It didn't disappoint. The main meals come with a soup or salad and endless, amazing garlic bread. Our minestrone soup was delicious. I had the spinach ravioli and it was great. My husband had the tortellini and although good, it was not... More

With limited restaurant choices in Hot Springs we came here after reading mostly positive reviews. Big mistake. While waiters at other tables appeared to be engaged, attentive, and recommending various dishes, we were stuck with Josh. He was no help. Based on previous dining experience at Maggiano’s, we ordered familiar dishes of shrimp scampi and baked ziti. What was served... More

This was a favorite place for many years for my wife before she passed away. Went there alone just to remember the good times. The service was not that good and the food was slopped together in an unprofessional way. The previous owner, Jamal, would not have allowed such things. Sorry, I can't see myself going back.

We actually stayed in a B&B across town, but this restaurant was well worth the drive. Great atmosphere. Every bite I took was better than the one before. We highly recommend the scallops and avocados with brandy pink cream sauce as an appetizer. I had sauteed chicken and shrimp in a brandy sauce with mushroom soup that was to die... More

The food was incredible! The manager was so accommodating, and had tons of wait staff checking on us in addition to our waitress. Had a huge volleyball group (28) here for dinner. Everyone made it a point of thanking me for bringing them to this restaurant. This is a real hidden gem- will DEFIANTLY be back!

Delicious food and great service! I had a seafood pasta dish that was just to die for, the sauce was creamy and the seafood was perfectly cooked.

We stopped at J & S because we were in the mood for Italian. Olive garden was swamped, people waiting out side. So we decide to give J & S a visit. The food is prepared in house. Stuffed mushrooms were wonderful and the Spinach Ravioli was as well. We accidently dropped a credit card on the floor, and the... More
