JCT Kitchen and Bar Ratings and Reviews
I have eaten at JCT Kitchen numerous times but it's been a while since I had lunch there. I enjoyed my meal and my companion enjoyed his as well. Our server was attending to a very large party as well as our table (and one or two others) and he was remarkable in being able to stay on top of everything! A big shout out to Jameson! Will certainly be back for lunch and dinner. My next meal will be Sunday Supper! Such a great food experience and value!
The service was great, however the food deplorable! Absolutely too salty. Even the chocolate cake had sprinkles of ROCK SALT on top of it! Who puts salt on top of cake?? The salty chicken and dumplings was Irish pub style, FYI, not the country style with gravy...The fried chicken was the only thing that I can recommend. The collards were full of vinegar, and the banana pudding had 2 banana slices with no wafers, just a bunch of whipped cream.
Overall the waitress was very nice, but other than that, I can't even recommend the food at this restaurant.
When we arrived (party of 3) I let the hostess know we had a 7:45pm reservation, but we were late (8pm). I was ok with having to wait due to being late. The hostess said she had us all checked in and would have us seated. We were escorted to a table that was outside of the main dining area by the door leading to the outside. The table resembled a kids dining table or the time out area. I asked the hostess if we could be reseated to an area in the main dining area and she was extremely rude about it basically saying no. I had to ask for a manager. The manager graciously agreed to move us. By the time our appetizers came our booth was ready. This incident is the reason why I give 4 stars. I was bringing my family from out of town to a new dining experience and had to start the dining experience with a negative one. No other party was sat at that table for the remainder of the night. One of our waitresses mentioned that the hostess should not have sat us there. The remainder of the night was great. The food was amazing, the waitresses, and the ambiance were great. I will definitely return. We dined on the fried chicken, collard greens, macaroni and cheese, and chicken and dumplings. The original table we were seated at needs to be removed from the facility.
My friends and I came here to celebrate two birthdays and a new job in the group. Upon entering the hostess wished me a happy birthday by name and the entire experience was stellar. I love the vibe of JCT and my friends who were there's for the first time absolutely loved the menu.
Great waitress. Best kale salad ever. Also fried chicken on top of salad was very tender and had a little spice to it, really tasty. It was loud as there were several big tables but quieted down a great deal as they left. Fifth time eating here, first time for dinner. We will be coming back!
We enjoyed the first part of our meal (appetizers, service) but the latter part of our meal (entrees, service) were lacking. Fried chicken tasted like it had been cooked much earlier and sat. Been here a number of times and this was the only time that I was not impressed.
Excellent food and service, as always. It's one of our go-to places in Atlanta. Just one issue this time. The "background" music was anything but. It was more like "foreground" music. Way, way too loud, and it was too aggressive in terms of music style. I like all kinds of music, including what they played, but the music for this atmosphere and for dinner music was just inappropriate. And again, way too loud. We even told the server and he had the manager come over and apologize only to tell us it was controlled by Corporate and it was some Spotify playlist; therefore the restaurant had to control over type or volume of music locally. Weird.
We come after theater several times a year. The Sunday supper choices are very good & you can't beat the value!! The last 3 times we were here our Servers were especially pleasant & very helpful. The wait staff seems to be especially pleasant & helpful at JCT. Would definitely recommend JCT.
This was our 2nd time at JCT. As previously, the food did not disappoint. We went for late dinner 9:15 after a show at the Fox. The pork chop was amazing.
The server was a little inattentive but perhaps she had a lot of tables. She brought a coffee we ordered then when a food runner brought our dessert the coffee was empty. Waitress passed by a few times. Finally we waved her over to ask for more coffee...usually people want that with their dessert. It's okay to bring it before but better check back when dessert arrives
I was so excited to try JCT but it did not live up to the expectations. The restaurant, atmosphere and server were all wonderful. As for the meal, the best part was the bread and butter. We ordered deviled eggs to share, they were ok. Our main meal was not great. I ordered the pasta dish and it was so salty, I could not taste of any the flavors of the food. After 3 or 4 bites, I could not eat it anymore. The person in my party had the pork chop. While it was a generous portion, the pork was not tender and it was a struggle to cut with a knife. We had 2 glasses of wine and a cocktail but I expected more for $150 dinner. I really wanted to like this place.
I have just had back surgery. I left a special note and called the restaurant requesting a booth/comfort seating. I was told they would take care of it. We arrived for dinner and didn't have booth seating. Williams had to sit in regular hard chairs. But, we were told we could wait an additional 45 mins for a booth. . No bueno with a recovering back.
