Given the 4-5 stars reviews it was a place that my wife and I wanted to try out to celebrate her 31st birthday. We were disappointed by the service. Given the fine dining prices and environment you would expect high end service. Nothing bad happened but beyond someone writing down our order and putting it on our table, that is much as service as we got. Good food, nice live piano, 55+ age crowd.

They can’t make a mojito and cheaping it out - alcohol and waster.
The attempt at cream brûlée is miserable.
Waiters are doubling up as batsmen which they are not.
Service was good but the waiter was under a lot of stress as they were not many around it seemed.

Food was good. They need a proper bar tender and better desserts.

Another amazing evening! Never disappointed dining here. Consistent professional, friendly service and mouthwatering food. This time we had an extra special treat with piano entertainment and a lovely elderly couple (patrons) who danced. Simply a wonderful evening.

Our overall experience was good except for one thing that we placed order for mushroom soufflé and we got lobster and server said this is what we asked. And the person was vegetarian.That spoiled our evening a bit but overall good restaurant, good ambience.

Great food and attentive service. The only problem is the restaurant is way too loud. Hard floors and high ceilings are made more difficult by the live music. We were with our parents and it was a struggle to hear anyone.

Wait staff, concierge, were all well mannered and very service oriented. Attentive wait staff, my salmon was cooked perfectly and the salad was refreshing and delicious. My friend and I were caught in the rain storm and the proprietor very kindly treated our table to complimentary dessert, as we waited the storm out. There was a relaxing live guitarist, playing at just the right volumn, to allow for conversation . Very enjoyable evening.

After last night's dinner, this restaurant has now become my favourite restaurant in the area. The food was truly superb. This was a business dinner, so it was quiet enough for conversation, but lively enough so the energy wasn't dead. The surroundings are beautiful. The service was very good. But it was the food that made the evening perfect. Everyone enjoyed their meal. And we tried many things on the menu! I would highly recommend Jonathons and I will be returning for dinner with my husband.

We had the pleasure of visiting Jonathan's after a long absence. As always, the ambiance was lovely; for those who have never been, this restaurant is cozy, the rooms are small and intimate and it is like eating in a private house. There were a lot of choices on the lunch menu, something that I find rare as most places offer a much more limited selection at lunch, and the prices were quite reasonable. The food was innovative and attractively presented (only Jonathan's could make a mixed greens salad interesting). That being said, the salad was quite large, so if you have it, you should choose a small dish as your main. I had the lamb shoulder on ricotta gnocchi and it was utterly delicious. My husband enjoyed his wild mushroom soup and lobster roll. The service was attentive, without being obsequious and it was well-timed. We resolved to return to Jonathan's more often. My only criticism was that the music was too loud, but that might have been because we were sitting under the speakers. I highly recommend this restaurant.

I haven't been back to visit Jonathans in over 20 years. In that time, I have lived all over the World, and have enjoyed some of the finest dining available anywhere, from Paris to Rome. I am delighted to report that in that time, nothing has changed, the food at Jonathans is just as superlative as ever. The same meticulous preparation, subtle combination of flavours and styled presentation. Give yourself a treat and just go. No matter what you order, you won't be disappointed.
