JCT Kitchen and Bar Ratings and Reviews
My wife and I went to JCT Kitchen for their Sunday prix fixe dinner. It was quite crowded and we waited about 5-10 minutes standing in the bar. We were seated in the dining area near the windows (they do have outdoor seating as well) and promptly given a run down of the menu. I ordered the fried chicken and my wife ordered blackened trout. Service was a bit spotty to start with the server having to retake our order for some reason which delayed things a bit. (She was in training so no big deal.) I ordered a bottle of "The Date" win, a sauvignon blanc, which was unusually full bodied and delicious. The fried chicken and sides were all prepared southern style and very tasty. My wife greatly enjoyed her trout but did said it was quite spicy. Overall a pleasant Sunday evening out at JCT Kitchen.
We went to JCT with recommendations from several friends and were very pleased with the food and with the service. The food was a upscale hipster southern and was as every bit as wonderful as we had been told. I was skeptical after looking at the menu online but every meal we ordered was fantastic. Our waitress was quick to distinguish what the differences were on the menu and give us a very accurate description. Her service was incredible and I am just sorry I could not remember her name to place on this review. Highly recommend.
Place is fantastic. Great location, easy access, really cool neighborhood. The menu was unique and the food was top notch. Farm to Fork, good options. Service was the best. Friendly, attentive, fast. Our server had all the answers. If you have not experienced this place, you need to.
Food quality was not what I expected based on reviews. Had the renowned fried chicken and collards with biscuits. Biscuits were not baked all the way through. Dough on the inside. Yuck! The chicken was tasteless. Your local fried chicken places woud be better. Collards were sweet. They added their sweet jct hot sauce which ruined the collards! Service was average, cocktails were weak, but the ambiance was great. I would not revisit this restaurant. I did inform the waiter about the biscuits so they can address the problem before serving other guests, but instead was aked if I wanted more biscuits to go. ???
Service was extraordinarily slow. We were ready to order quickly and ordered drinks, apps, etc all at once because, and the meal took over TWO HOURS on a Tuesday night. Even getting the credit card back after we paid the check took 20 minutes. Really made an otherwise good experience very frustrating. We had to cancel our plans after dinner because we simply couldn't get out of the restuarant in time.
The service here is great. Everyone's very friendly. The food is a bit too fancy for me. (No need to reinvent mac and cheese) The chef clearly has a high level of expertise and has taken great care in crafting his or her dishes, but i would expect to enjoy the taste more at these prices. Even so, I love this place. I will be back.
Went on a Saturday for lunch and the service was subpar. We asked for an extra napkin and it never came. We asked for 4 biscuits and they only brought two so we asked for the other two and instead they only brought one. We had several different waiters and they only came by the table occasionally. I can understand if the restaurant were packed during a dinner service but it was lunch. Disappointed with our experience.
