Not locals, but live in a pretty fair restaurant city (SF). Jack's surpassed my high expectations. From the tasting menu, a few bites from the raw platter was possibly the best oyster taste I have ever had. My only wish was that there had been a single meat dish to round things out a bit, but all in all -- wonderful food, in a unique space, with warm, excellent service. Try a black velvet as a nice aperitif. Upstairs in tiny, indeed. If there is even one person being overly loud, or otherwise disruptive, it could have an impact on your experience, but take the chance.
