Jeffrey Adams on Fourth Ratings and Reviews
Came here for dinner on a recommendation. The food was sub par and the bread with the appetizer was still almost frozen on some pieces. My steak did not come as I ordered it and my guest's meal was not cooked well either. It wasn't inedible but it was not what I was expecting. I will say that the service was good and the waitress was very friendly.
I have had good experiences at Jeffrey Adams, but this was just really bad. The waitress couldn't have cared less about our table and complained that the kitchen was upstairs, so she had to go upstairs whenever we made a request. We did not get refills on our drinks until we asked another waitress, and our waitress did not check to see how the food was. The manager was apologetic but did not really do much to fix the situation. I hope this was just a fluke. I'd still recommend this restaurant, but this was a really bad day for them.
This was our 2nd time here. Both times the food was very good as was the service.
Only complaint this time we were seated at a small table by the bar and there was a very loud group there. Was disappointing.
If you want to be able to have a conversation I would request to not be seated by the bar.
We had a reservation but did not know to request that.
My boyfriend and I ventured here as it was the only place besides one other restaurant that had availability on Valentine's Day 2017. It was our first time there and was perfect! Our waiter (can't remember his name) was awesome. The Brussels sprouts weren't cooked to their tenderness and he took them back and also brought me a sample of the amazing mashed sweet potatoes along with a side order of them. The dessert was phenomenal (warm brownie with ice cream). We will return. Thank you for an outstanding Valentine's Day 2017.
My husband and I had our rehearsal dinner in their private room downstairs a couple of years ago, and it was wonderful! The food and the service are impressive. So we decided to have our Valentine's Day dinner there this year, and everything was just as wonderful as we remembered. I highly recommend the seafood risotto. The smoky flavor combined with the creaminess of comfort food is just exquisite. I highly recommend this restaurant. We absolutely love it!
Even though we were an hour early for our reservation, we were seated right away. The first table was too small, so they put us at a bigger one. The bar tender made our drinks while they got the new table ready. Our waitress was one of the best I've ever had. I ordered the 14oz rib eye and could cut it with the butter knife. We sat there for an hour and had drinks before we left.
My family and I are huge on burgers. We had a place in town that always satisfied our burger cravings. Then we tried Jeffrey Adams! It is now our burger- go-to place! The Farmhouse Burgers is amazingly delicious down to the last bite! Oh, and the smoked gouda mac-n-cheese just melts in your mouth! Our server was knowledgeable about the food and had good recommendations on beverages. I highly recommend giving this place a try. You won't be disappointed.
While in downtown Winston Salem for business we had a few extra nights free. The concierge at the nearby Kimpton Cardinal Hotel (also excellent hotel and French restaurant) recommended this and another nearby place on 4th Street - a big restaurant area downtown. The other one didn't have anything available and JA did. But pleased with our choice, very good experience. Short safe pleasant stroll from hotel. Nice bar/drink choices. Excellent/unique pot roast nachos appetizer that someone else recommended online. Very good and different. BBQ Pork tenderloin entree was very very good. Hickory grilled chicken salad was good don't plentiful. Recommend if you're in the vicinity.
It was a nice restaurant in a vibrant area. I was visiting from out of town and wanted to go somewhere with a little more scenery and activity. It's a nice area of town, easy and accessible public parking. The food was delivered hot. It was tasty just not exceptional. The wine "by the glass" was not impressive. I wish there had been choices for a higher quality served by the glass. I was disappointed.
Really enjoyed the Big Eat Tuesday special of Beef and Grits, plus local beers on the menu and half off wine on these winter Tuesdays. Great waiter and enjoyed a birthday brownie and ice cream on the house for our friend's birthday. Second floor tables are great for watching an active downtown Winston-Salem scene.
Our experience was awful! The Waitress forgot to put in our appetizers and didn't explain or apologize. We ordered hand crafted martinis that taste like dish soap and even when the manager came and got the payment envelopes she never ask how our food was she grabbed them and took off. I was very disappointed with every aspect of our experience and for they're prices they should strive for better better customer service but they don't seem to care! We will never go back!
I've always enjoyed the food and service at Jeffrey Adams. Their steaks are the best! This visit was very loud and the music playing seemed odd for the ambiance. On this visit we had the wild mushroom and artichoke dip, it was great. My daughter had a hamburger with smoked pimento cheese and onion straws. She though the burger was a little dry. The pimento cheese was excellent. My husband and I had petite filets. They were cooked perfect and flavorful. My sides were smoked gouda mac and cheese and mashed sweet potatoes. The mac and cheese was incredible but I thought the mashed sweet potatoes were too sugary. Our server was wonderful.
We ate here during the Big Eat and got the special which was the 4oz Filet and it was fantastic! Cooked to perfection (med-rare) I subbed the Gouda Mac-n-cheese as a side and it was well worth the up charge. We also got the Wild Mushroom and Artichoke Dip which was outstanding! Plus the wines are half off by the glass on Tuesdays! Perfect double date night with our friends!
My husband and I live in Durham, NC and whenever we want to go somewhere we decide it is time to go to Winston Salem so that we can visit Jeffrey Adams. We love the food and the service. The coffee was excellent as well. We have made it a point to visit every month to month and a half to site see but especially to visit Jeffrey Adams. We know we will get an excellent meal every time we go there for our two day mini vacation.
I visited this restaurant this past summer. We returned tonight. The restaurant has lost its mojo.
The Food was bad. The Portions were small. The Service was SLOW and inefficient.
Maybe this restaurant can find its way. Right now, the restaurant is lost and riding on their past achievements.
Do yourself a favor, skip this place. There are plenty of restaurants on this street which will serve you faster, in a happier manner, and with larger portions than the paltry amounts you get here.
Skip the seafood too. The table beside us ordered seafood and we could smell it as the server walked by and as it was being consumed. Stinky seafood is so unappetizing.
Our table of six ordered ordered salads, pork, duck, shellfish, and beef. We sent the beef back, there were less than five tiny pieces of steak tips. The duck was poorly prepared, over cooked, and should have been sent back.
The server was friendly. She was slow as you could sense she was overworked. There was nothing about her service which was endearing.
This restaurant could be great, but right now it is less than mediocre.
The coffee was weak and a waste. Skip the coffee.
Never disappoints except when people insist on intruding on everyone else's dining experience with their inconsolable toddler. The food is superb and the staff is pleasant and eager. I love the subdued casual elegance of the first floor dining room. It's a great place to reunite friends and family or a discreet place afforded by high booths for a rendezvous or to tell your cousin about your new FWB over great food.
I made this reservation the beginning of October for the second week of December. I was unfamiliar with the restaurant and did not specify to get a certain type of table. Upon arrival, I did ask for a window seat upstairs and was immediately declined (we were 45 minutes early on our reservation so it was only 5:00). Seems the upstairs window seats were reserved and no other option was offered. We ended up at one of two tables at the noisy and crowded bar.
I even called earlier in the week to confirm my reservation. They had plenty of opportunity to see how early I had made these reservations and could have put at us at a better locale in the restaurant.
The service was good but I was very disappointed that this special occasion was overrode by the noise and location of where we were seated. We could not hear each other talk and felt very cramped.
Everything was great. Petite filet with egg sunny side up on top with chipotle holandaise served on top of a lobster cake with ratatouille side. Crazy good. Historically have found my way to downtown Winston-Salem once a year for the Nutcracker. This restaurant is reason enough for me to find my way more often.
