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.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
