I’ve been here multiple times in all seasons, weekdays and weekend and over lunch and dinner. And they have always had great quality food and service. Lovely atmosphere. The main thing is they have been able to remain consistent throughout. Well done to the team at J&R Richmond.
Really excellent location, great feel, food well presented and tasted great, drink fairly priced (bubbly). Waiter excellent friendly service. Certainly should be worth visiting again and again!
Our first visit. Great location. Welcomed well. Lovely atmosphere. Delicious food. Attentive service. Courteous and helpful staff. Knowledgeable about coeliac requirements. Will definitely plan to return.
Loved Jackson and Rye in Richmond. Delicious lunch, friendly & helpful staff... pretty views of a moody Thames, tasteful interior and much fun and bonhomie. Great experience... Happy Friday!
Such a warm welcome from the team. I was about half an hour early for my reservation but was still seated & in a great spot by the window. Our waiter (I can't remember his name but he had lovely eyes!) was very attentive. We didn't have to flag him down once. He made recommendations for drinks & food which I always appreciate but the only thing that let him down is that he was a little too pushy. For example I asked for the steak, he kindly recommended the brisket, I said "but I really fancy the steak" which in my opinion is where it should have been left but he proceeded to encourage me to have the brisket. Happy to try new things I ordered it, ate it but didn't enjoy it as much as I would have done a steak. After dessert he recommended I have a whisky instead of the drink I initially ordered. I told him I didn't do whisky but again he insisted. Again.. didn't like it. He didn't charge me for it which was great of him but his pushiness made MY experience not as enjoyable. But he was a great guy & I always appreciate good service. He was lovely. I will be returning & ordering what I want next time.
Very nice welcome from the Receptionist. We were given a very nice table at the front of the Restaurant overlooking the river. We were attended to promptly. I ordered The Forager which was absolutely delicious, and a generous helping. I asked that my eggs be flipped over, and they were. My husband ordered the Pulled Pork but the waiter came back to the table to say that there wasn't any left. This was the only hiccup. He ordered the eggs benedict with lightly poached eggs, and indeed they were. I had the strawberry Bellini which was delicious and quite reasonably priced. The waiter was very friendly. We like this restaurant and will definitely return.
The food was clearly good quality, but we did not have an excellent experience. Our starter and main courses arrived at the same time. They offered to take the mains away, but we didn't want them sitting under a heat lamp or being wasted, so we took them at the same time. We had requested the two sauces for the starter to be served by the side. Instead, one was on the plate and the other was missing entirely. The steak was ordered medium rare, but was served very rare, close to blue. It was also so cold that the butter on it didn't melt. We were not provided with a steak knife. At no point did anyone check our meal was ok. I think that they were busy, but it was very sub standard service. On the plus point, one of our party has celiac disease and the manager was very helpful and knowledgable about which dishes were suitable for her. This is incredibly important for her when dining out.
The portion sizes here are just getting small and stingier. Firstly, the food arrived very quickly - so quickly that you know it had been precooked and was just being held. The 'bubble chicken looked overdone and was quite dry. It was also very small pieces. This dish (priced at £12.75) said it came with coleslaw - it did but it must have been a teaspoon full on a small lettuce leaf. They used to serve their coleslaw in large tubs and you got a lot! They also serve this on a large oval plate so it makes the food look even stingier. This is a really cynical way of cutting costs. This dish is just not worth £12.75 It's a shame about this place because we have always loved their food but yesterday showed that after their big success, they start cutting down portions. Will certainly think twice about coming here again.
Nice vibe to the restaurant as an upmarket TGI American concept. Service ethos good but even though only half full, we were kept waiting for starters and then mains. Once you have to ask where the food is, it changes the relaxed feel to a family meal. No apology offered and staff certainly didn't pre-empt the problem by approaching the table with an apology and reassurance despite seeing we had been waiting 15 mins etc for easy starters. When asked, we were told some food was ready on the pass but they were still waiting for other dishes to be completed before all of it could be served to us - hardly a professional response as guarantees something will be cold. So this was a kitchen problem, handled badly by front-of-house staff. Cost for 5 was £180 which is a fairly large bill for an average experience. Very unlikely to repeat visit.
What a wonderful team! Completely accommodating. Excellent venue! We went there after our civil wedding service and they had run out of pancakes. We had in our mind that this was our first meal post the service and as we had already ordered a bottle of champagne, the manager applogised by not charging us for it. A completely generous move that kept our spirits very high! Thanks so much guys, we'll definitely be back.
