“Best of Everything”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

Art (Arthur) was our waiter for the evening and he was amazing. Not only was he quick, but very attentive. We didn't tell him, but my husband and I were on our honeymoon. He was very nice, and made sure to come by every few minutes to pour us a new glass of wine. He took care of our car validation, even re-corked, and bagged our bottle of wine for the go.

Thank you Art! Our evening was perfect.

“Apparently the Chefs are not nice.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

went to dinner here the first night in town. Walked in and got seated and after 10 minutes had to go ask if we had a waiter to assist us. The hostess got a gentleman to assist us fairly quickly. We ordered and on one appetizer asked for no mustard. Upon receiving said appetizer commented that there was mustered on the plate. An honest mistake but the waited said the kitchen was going to kill him. I found this very odd to say to the guests. All in all he rarely came back and we decided it was definitely not worth coming back the rest of the trip.

“Lunch at Jack's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

Went to Jack's for lunch on our anniversary. We sat outside on the patio that looks over a beautiful courtyard that leads to Fisherman's Wharf. It was peaceful and relaxing. ( the inside of the restaurant was beautiful). Had the calamari sandwich and it was probably the freshest most tender piece of calamari I have ever had (and I have eaten a lot of it). Highly recommended. Prices were fair for lunch and a little on the pricey side for dinner
