The Jones Family Project is an independently owned modern steak restaurant & cocktail bar. Sourcing our meat from farmers & butchers we know focus on quality such as The Ginger Pig, we're open from 11am until midnight Mon - Sat and for traditional British roast lunch on Sundays. Our extensive wine list of over 100 wines always has more than 28 choices by the glass & our cocktail list features in-house aged ingredients. Our main focus is meat, with steaks dry-aged for a minimum of 28 days and cooked on our Josper oven, but there are always two vegetarian dishes on our a la carte menu and, as all dishes are prepared by our experienced chef team in house, we are able to adapt many of our dishes to meet requests by diners with food intolerances and allergies. In addition to fantastic steaks some of the house specialities include Pork Rib Eye, Truffled Macaroni Cheese and Anna's Triple Chocolate Brownie.

Four of us had a meal on Saturday night to celebrate my birthday. The food was amazing, service was excellent and I even got a bday card from the staff. A nice touch. We’ll be back.

Tasty meal, with great variety of menu options. Steak was cooked perfectly for medium rare. The truffle macaroni cheese was an unexpected delight. All staff were very friendly and prompt. We were seated in a booth in the restaurant which was great as it meant we could easily chat to each other. Noise levels were pleasant.

We were in London for a long weekend and staying in Shoreditch. Stumbled upon this restaurant on open table and liked the look and sound of it. We were a little early so had a drink in the bar area first. Staff were polite and friendly and the service overall was good. We shared the Chateaubriand which was lovely. Has a nice menu and fell about the place.

One of the better Sunday lunches in Islington. Fantastic duck fat roast potatoes, delicious gravy and sumptuous carrots and parsnips. The poussin was succulent, but tricky to eat off the bone and while I’m a big fan of mash on a roast it was a little too much ‘soft’, a 3rd or 4th roasty would have been much preferred. The addition of sprouts and cauliflower rounded out my five a day but they were a little bland and al dente and certainly didn’t compensate for my one piece of carrot. At two courses for £18 it’s a decent value roast compared with others in the area and the browny was delicious. Will probably return (the rest of the menu sounded tasty).

Had high expectations of restaurant to celebrate our Engagement the night before, however we were extremely disappointed with the service we received. Food was OK, but overpriced for what we got. Very inattentive staff on the night. We were sat in the corner of the room which we didn't mind, however we did not expect to be ignored for every round of service for example, once we sat down it was approx. 10 min's before we were asked if we wanted Water, then took 10 minutes to come and give some tap water, then another 10 minutes to ask if we want a drink, another 10 minutes for it to come and so on.... Our Main course was steak, I spilled sauce over the table so asked if I could get some more, this never came. When wanting the bill there was no one to ask the bill so we had to go up and pay ourselves. Not sure why Opentable (when booking) asks why we are visiting as when we put to celebrate engagement, you would half expect a mid range restaurant to acknowledge something like that. Very Disappointed overall.

The main reason for our disappointment at the restaurant was the wait for over half an hour from finishing our starter until our main arrived. We had already said we were under a little time pressure when we arrived, so this lengthy wait did not help. Unfortunately we were unable to enjoy our meal as a result.

Went for dinner here with two friends and was very impressed with the quality of the food here. It was far better than many much more expensive restaurants. The Atmosphere was nice and the staff were helpful (if a little
over-stretched; though it being Christmas time there were a few largish dinner parties there which might explain this).
Would definitely go here again and recommend the place to friends.

Excellent. Very good Sunday roast, though I will order an extra portion of roast potties next time - only got two each, which was# extra annoying considering how good they were. Three had beef, two of which enjoyed one found was a bit chewy and should have ordered it medium. One poussin which was lovely, very moist. Very good value too. Will go again for sure.

Lovely beef Sunday roast with great quality meat from Ginger Pig. Veggie option good, but lack of roast potatoes was slightly disappointing. Nut roast was also a tad too sweet. Other than that it was very good and the staff were fantastic.

The food was terrible, what a waste of time and money.
The meat was average and the sides were bad, flavourless. Sincerely go somewhere else.
The environment doesn't exist, can't understand how this place still exists.

Service was pretty poor; the worst experience out of the 4 times i have been here. Served the wrong food, orders taken and food not delivered to the table at all and steak which was ordered as medium, clearly served as a rare/medium-rare. The ambience was as good as ever, but the quality of the food and service has made me question about impending returns.

Last minute booking. Excellent very flavoursome rump steak and the starter - spicy tuna - also good. Kicked off dinner with happy hour cocktails at £5.

Waiting staff very friendly too.

I like the idea of being able to order your cut from a list of pieces on the board. Definitely a good place to share a slab of beef if you live with a vegetarian!

Went for Sunday lunch having been before for the a la carte menu. I won't go into detail on the meal but despite spending well over £100 for 2 the waitress told me that butter was an extra. Really? I have never heard something so ridiculous in my life

Came here for dinner and catch up with a group of female friends. We asked for a different table as our table was by the kitchen/serving counter and quite hot and distracting. We were told other tables were booked. I understand that it was a busy Saturday evening, but lots of tables were still free by the time we had finished our meal so I am sure they could have tried harder to accommodate us. We had aperitifs (eg Aperol Spritz) which were reasonably priced at £7.50. The food was fine; two of us had the seasonal risotto which was generous and very nicely cooked, and the other two had monkfish (catch of the day) which was also good but only came with a "smear" of pureed potato and two small leaves of pink kale - just garnish really. We could have done with some side dishes and this ought to have been suggested by our waiter. Overall, slightly disappointed by our first visit to this restaurant, but the menu and general ambience were good so I would be prepared give it another try. There is also a quirky bar on the ground floor (restaurant is downstairs) which seemed surprisingly quiet for a Saturday night.

Amazing food, we got the beef rib for two. Service was great, I scored it a 4 as it would be nice to have some consistency in waiting staff as we had a few different people, but that honestly was the only negative. The whole dining experience was great! Thanks so much :)
