JCT Kitchen and Bar Ratings and Reviews
The avocado toast is a must try. Still thinking about it. Portions are large so suggest sharing entrees family style. Overall courteous and great service from the valet and bartender, to the server and hosts. Looking forward to trying the other Ford Fry restaurants now.
The menu looked and sounded exquisite, however My girlfriend is pretty much a pescatarian and there were really no options for Her on the prixe fix menu. Unfortunately, although the waitress offered to consult the chefs, She did not want to go through that trouble so We left without eating. I enjoy JCT Kitchen personally, but because She is such a picky eater, She would not venture out and try anything which was disappointing.
Atmosphere was great! Food was phenomenal!! Our waitress gave off an impression that she was "higher class" than us.... I feel she treated us differently because we were younger (four 25 year olds) than her. She forgot about one of our drinks. The girl didn't get her drink until 35 minutes after being seated. She came back twice to confirm our order because she failed to write anything down. Waitress focused more on being proper and professional than actually doing her job and bringing us drinks timely and checking on us. Great food but terrible service...
The pork chop was absolutely delicious but the hanger steak was very chewy and inedible unfortunately. The service was great though. Awesome staff, and they did offer us something else to try. Despite the hanger steak fail I'll still go back because they still have great food.
We had friends of ours come in from out of town and wanted to take them to one of our Atlanta favorites. JCT did not disappoint. Our waitress was incredibly nice and informative.
The food was amazing. Started with the mussels appetizer, which was excellent. For my entree, I had the ribeye cap. It was phenomenal. Highly recommend it. My girlfriend had a salad with sides of Mac'n'cheese and Brussels sprouts. I had a few bites of each and all of them were great. Don't think you can go wrong here with anything on the menu.
Visited JCT while visiting family in Atlanta. Food was good, drinks can be more generous. I ordered the JCTea and the martini glass was half empty. Service was poor. The hostess was too busy looking at a phone or iPad to even acknowledge we were right in front of her and then it seemed we interrupted her. We waited more than 10 minutes before anyone came to our table to say hello and take drink order. We placed our order and food did arrived 30 min later. We had a burger and shrimp and grits. Overall it took us an hour and 35 mins to have lunch.
One of my favorite spots in the west side. Gathered here for a surprise party for a friend and the food, drinks, and atmosphere were amazing as always. We started with the pimento cheese and truffle fries, and whats not to love about those! A few of us ordered the Fried Chicken Sandwich and it was delicious! The service was good, it was very crowded in there so it took almost two hours for lunch, which was fine for our group because we were willing to wait. Overall, this is one of my absolute favorite spots and I always recommend this restaurant to any out of town guests or people looking for a great meal!
We had a great experience. We live close by, but chose to go to JCT because of it's service, food, and ambiance. Our waitress was extremely attentive and fun. She had a great sense of humor and made us feel welcomed. Our food was extraordinary. We tried something new for us and it did not disappoint. I highly recommend!
