The food was disappointing for the price it was. Very generic, nothing special. It was fine.

We enjoyed a delightful luncheon for four. The menu was somewhat limited but offered all the basics that one could wish, including a 'price fixed' option which offers an appetizer and desert.

Service was great; food exceptional; a bit noisy because we chose to eat outside and the eating area is on a very busy street (but don't let that stop you from enjoying a good meal)

We brought a friend tonight. He had the lobster paella special and a chocolate ganache cake for dessert. He ate every bite and enjoyed everything! My husband and I enjoyed our meals thoroughly (mac n cheese appetizer, crabcake appetizer and the Scottish salmon). As always, service was friendly.

We live nearby but have never dined here. We had a gift card so figured - Why not? Ate outside under the tent. It was not bad even though it was a hot/humid day. Our server was attentive and we never had to ask for water refills. We didn’t drink but I noticed that at a nearby table, the wine was a decent pour. Good to know! The food was a good portion. Nice presentation. Fresh and flavorful. Everyone in our party was happy and we left full and happy.

We each decided to choose from the prix fixe menu. Great price for the appetizer, entree, and dessert! Everything was absolutely delicious. I had the pot roast, my sister had seafood risotto, and my aunt had the salmon.

Jonathan's is one of our favorites. We don't eat meat, but the salads, pastas, and fresh fish are always delicious and well prepared. Good bar, and great desserts too. We had arranged to hold a party here for a special anniversary in June of 2020. About a month into the pandemic, we had to throw in the towel and cancel the party. We had put down a significant deposit earlier in the year, but we felt so bad that we were canceling that we told the restaurant to keep that money. They said they would give us dining credits for take-out meals for as long as it took to use up the deposit. I think it was helpful for them to be able to keep the kitchen running. We took them up on it, and it lasted us well through the summer. We really appreciated that courtesy, and we are glad to be able to eat there in person once again. We will keep going back.

Seven fussy people for brunch. A wonderful time had for all. Excellent choices and delicious food. We really enjoyed ourselves. I really liked my dish -- smoked salmon with potato pancakes. Nice bread and muffin basket refilled during the meal. And how generous to include coffee, tea or juice.

We enjoyed our brunch entrees this past Sunday at Jonathan’s. I had the Country Breakfast with potato pancakes and no meat; my friend had the vegetable frittata. Both meals were very good. Service was also OK, although it was very busy inside and noisy in the back room where we were. One suggestion would be to put in some carpet to dampen the sound. The tables were at least spaced well apart. Both the hosts and waiters were polite and helpful.

I have been to this restaurant about 30 times. From the lovely people who greet you warmly at the door to the excellent wait service, it’s professional all the way. The food is excellent and yesterday I was in a party of 4....cowboy porkchop, pecan crushed chicken, linguine a la voglone and a good old fashioned burger and fries. All outstanding and all with attentive service. It’s my go to place when I don’t know what I want because there’s always something great on the menu...no matter your age or your taste. Also, to mention that the filtration system was redone and social distancing still rules. They want their customers but they do it in a safe responsible way. Cannot wait to go back. Thank you!

Being Mother's Day, the service was very good. Everyone enjoyed their meals. We were a table of 6 and had a wide variety of dishes, fish, meat and one who decided to have appetizers only as his dinner. Of course we had appetizers and deserts as well as coffee and tea.
Everyone left completely satisfied with the selection of this Restaurant which is why we keep coming back.

Terrible service. Very slow. The servers took no interest in us. There was no hospitality. We were ignored. Not worth the wait or the money. I haven't been out to eat in over a year and this was extremely disappointing.
