Visiting yearly, we never miss a chance to eat at Jacaranda or have a drink and mini-meal at the Jac Bar. Fine dining, good entrees, friendly manager and wait staff . . . try their prime rib.

Always enjoyed going to this restaurant. Tried to book a reservation but could not. Found out later that it is closed. Uncertain how or when it will re-open

Pretentious and over-priced. Poor quality food from over-rated chef. Serving staff courteous and fine, but what a waste of money on less than satisfactory food. Very DISAPPOINTED.
