This was probably my 4th time to visit Jamie's and I was a little disappointed. Our server was the issue. She took a very long time to check in with our table. She dropped a knife on a friend, spilled hot oil on my jacket and had many issues with splitting the bill and not keeping things accurate. It also took a while for the dishes to be served to the table and inconsistent. Most of the table received their items but one friend did not and took a while. I also was disappointed with my dish which said the pasta had rapini in it but it was very minimal. Also my gluten free pasta was under seasoned and overcooked.

I don't think we will be returning any time soon.

Very basics things were lacking or missing from our experience. The food was missing ingredients, service took way to long and the dinks were not very good. The Negroni was quite good tho.

My boyfriend and I dined here and ordered calamari, a burger, pizza, tiramisu, and a pitcher of sangria (which was half off!). Our server was pleasant and everything tasted delicious! We're definitely coming back to try more dishes. Highly recommend.

We ordered pasta for our main meals and the pasta noodles were very hard. Our waitress was very nice about the situation and took back the pasta and got them to remake it was excellent and very much appreciated. I think the portion sizes are a little too small for the price you pay especially the appetizer size. Overall, the food was mediocre but the service was great and was the best part. Our waitress was even so nice that she gave us a free dessert to make up for the pasta and the extra wait time to remake the pasta. *Also, I think jazz music should be played in that atmosphere. Or something smoother with a warmer feel. 80’s Music was played. Music changes the mood🤷🏻‍♀️

Beautiful interior! Loved the hanging charcuterie! Everything tasted great. We had the arancini, fried squid, combo cheese and charcuterie board, one of the pastas (don’t remember the name) and the carne pizza. (Too full for dessert but had some gelato just to try something lol) Everything tasted phenomenal! Definitely coming back for the food!

I was alittle skeptical about coming to Jamie's as I read mixed reviews for Winterlicious 2020. I like to form my own options and I'm glad I did. The atmosphere and restaurant layout was simple, modern and clean. Our server Jessie (sorry if I spelled your name wrong) was kind, courteous and attentive. The food service was prompt as well. The food was excellent and delicious. The presentation of the food was also amazing. I will definitely visit again. I can't wait to try other options on the regular menu.

The waiter was terrific, the ambiance was wonderful, the overall place is a fine fine looking restaurant.

The food was incredibly overpriced, small portioned, my veggie pasta was so overly salty and could barely put it down.

Never going back

I was not happy with the pasta it was hugely undercooked/ - Raghu pasta. My daughter’s mushroom pasta was done right so mine did not meet the expected quality standards. The pannacotta was a disappointment. No flavour just a blob and the sauce on top was meagre. Araincini was fabulous.

Everything was great but the seat location they put us. Beside the garage door and the cold air draft comes in. Restaurant was full so there is no seat available to move.

Was told to wait 15 mins for a reservation I made days ago. Of all tables, my table didn’t have a candle lit while everyone else was. Was also offered tap water or sparking water.. when I was shocked of the water options the server assumed I wanted tap water but I said no sparkling and a sangria. I still tipped the server well but it’s just a horrible poor experience and I wouldn’t go again

The carbonara was Luke warm when served and the sauce tasted like it was microwaved. The pancetta pieces were so small you couldn’t taste it.
They ran out of warm sticky pudding because it’s on the winterlicious menu. Seems like a poor excuse considering it was put on the winterlicious menu and the fact Saturday’s are very busy management should be more aware.

Unfortunately the service was subpar. Slow and not very professional. We were finished dinner and the plates just sat in front of us for a ridiculous amount of time. Food presentation wasn’t the best either although it was fairly tasty... making the overall experience fair. Unfortunately I don’t believe any of us will be going back anytime soon.

Service is quite slow and our server prompt for touchpoint. She basically dropped our meals and go.

The seating section we were at was closer to the door so every time a new guest comes in, the freezing air would come in. We had to wear our jackets to stay warm!

We were very excited to try out the winter licious menu. Over all the food was very disappointing. The chicken was very bland. The service staff showed no enthusiasm or graciousness when dealing with us as we enter the restaurant. I think some customer service chips for the staff would be a good thing. I was expecting a lot more. Also considering the quality of food and the price was high. I do not recommend this restaurant. It was quite disappointing.

The appetizer and dessert were superb. My guests and I thoroughly enjoyed every bite! The arancini was done to perfection, and the sauces it was basted in was a definite decadent indulgence. The mushrooms added a depth of texture to this dish, and I was savouring every bite.

I ordered the margarita pizza, and was sorely disappointed. This pizza was paper thin, burnt, and unappetizing. I asked for a side of the fettuccine mushroom sauce as a dipping sauce, and the staff were accommodating. This was very much appreciated because this pizza was terribly bland, and even with toppings was paper thin. With the help of the dipping sauce I was able to stomach the pizza.

The dessert, the epic brownie was epic! My tastebuds were dancing with every bite of this chocolate, moist, perfectly made brownie. No garnish was required to make this dish perfect, but it did come with some vanilla ice cream and candies popcorn, both of which complimented this dessert well.

Excellent location, services and food for value. Went there for Winterlicious with a friend. Great choices for the 3 course lunch . Pasta (penne) dish was delicious with just the right amount of Bolognese sauce and not salty. Both the panna cotta and fudge brownie with vanilla gelato desserts were perfect. Definitely will be a return customer.

My only issue was the reservation problem. Saturday morning I went on line and booked at table for Saturday Feb 1st at 5:30 I received a confirmation almost immediately. Had to change to 6:00 pm and did that at around 3:30 pm so plenty of notice, got a confirmation on the change. Got to Jamie's and they did not have my reservation. They did find a table but we were placed very close to 4 people that were so loud I just wanted to eat and get out. Food was great, waitress great.
