My husband and I came here with reservations on a Saturday evening for Restaurant Week. We had an amazing server who was funny and sweet. For starters, I had the mac +cheese + chocolate. I thought I would give it a shot as it sounded interesting, but really, it was mac and cheese on the bottom with chocolate sprinkled on... More

Just walked into Jacks which does not take reservations normally but was rudely informed by the really obnoxious hostess that they only take reservations for restaurant week. Jacks needs to decide on a consistent policy

We were in town for my husband's conference and met up with a friend of ours that lives in Baltimore. She suggested that we go to Jack's Bistro for dinner and drinks. Let's start with the drinks. The dirty martini was delicious, well shaken and the perfect amount of olive juice. The wine list was short, but some good selections,... More

Went for an early dinner with kids and grandkids on a Sunday evening. No wait. Our server was fantastic, immediately connected with our 5- and 7-year old granddaughters, but also took our order and handled the bar order quickly and efficiently. Lobster Mac was awesome, Guinness Filet and grits best I've had anywhere (we live in rural GA and nobody... More

This is a small restaurant that serves great lobster pasta and excellent prime rib. I could cut it with a spoon . No reservations were needed

I have been to Jack's a couple of times and the food is always great. Don't miss the filet! It is out of this world as well as the Shrimp in garlic sauce app! The atmosphere isn't anything to write home about but the service and food make up for it!

We went for the second time with our son and daughter in law. Combination Asian and American items. The mussels are awesome...large green lip mussels with cilantro, red onion, and a fish sauce and soy dressing. Best eggplant fries I've ever had. Wonderful Tom Yum soup. Don't miss the Guinness beef and grits. Cute small space. No reservations, so get... More

I went during restaurant week, and I brought my teenage daughter. We both found plenty to eat (my favorite bite was the mussels), and to drink..the bartender made my daughter a non-alcoholic drink and I tried a spicy cocktail. The food was wonderful, and our waitress made some recommendations on the menu, which I loved. There's nothing worse than a... More

Neighborhood restaurant with superb food ( salmon wrapped in paper , crab cake, feta and tomato salad, etc). Good service, varied menu, reasonably priced, and on street parking. Rather noisy on a Saturday night.

Jack's Bistro is a great dining experience! Like most Baltimore neighborhood restaurants, it is small inside, really small, so please don't come during busy times with a party larger than 6 people. There's literally no room. The food has always been amazing here, tasty, delicious, inventive (chocolate mac and cheese?!), and their cocktails are top notch. Loud and lively inside,... More
