I’ve eaten at JCT over 50 times & have recommended it to many. However, the food portions are getting too small for the cost. E.g. the shrimp/avocado salad is now $18 for 4 shrimp, perhaps 1/2 avocado & some Bibb & Frizee lettuces. I’ve eaten at Canoe many times too & a shrimp salad there has an abundance of shrimp (as many as 24 small but not mini shrimp) & an amazing cole slaw for less money. I take food home with me.

My dish came with bone and cartilage. My husband ‘s dish was over cooked. The restaurant should give a discount or a desert for free because of the bone... take care of your customers is a way to survive in the market.

The food is good but if you want “clean” eating not an option. Butter and or cream seemed to find its way to each dish. Good food but do not be surprised

This was our first time visiting and I absolutely love this place. The food and service was five star. The ambience was attractive and pleasurable. I definitely will come again. This link wouldn't take the picture I was trying to upload from my phone but the fried chicken is one of the best in the city and hell surroinding cities

Before dinner bar on second floor was excellent. Manhattans were delicious. Dinner was on courtyard deck and very good for conversation. Pork Chops were a little too done. Server did not ask for slightly pink center. Ease of parking was very helpful. Great place for a business dinner.

Went with a group of six. The menu is not large but is varied and very interesting. There is ample parking and it is very easy to find the restaurant. I would recommend this place for anyone desiring a dining experience. The place is moderately priced but the dishes were worth the money. Everyone was very pleased with the preparation and presentation of the dished served.

Amazing food. Great service. Only suggestion is to make an abundance of the Rum Soaked Coconut Cake. We did not have an opportunity to try it but we sure was looking forward to it.

I was so impressed by the amazing service we received while celebrating my husband's graduation. When his ceremony ran short, JCT Kitchen and Bar was extremely accommodating in getting us in sooner. Additionally, they kept our cake cold AND brought it out already cut for everyone. Outside of the great service, the food was also great. Our experience could not have been better.

Great, cool, delicious staple in the ATL. But this time the service was off by quite a bit- we gave our drink order twice and everything took quite a while to come out and it was just the two of us so it wasn’t a lot of dishes or drinks. But still great place, awesome location and excellent food!

JCT has changed their menu again, keeping some staples and adding some freshness. The food was very very tasty but the overall experience was a little lacking. Our reservation ran a bit late and service, while friendly, was incredibly low! Huge wait time between appetizers and entrees and unacceptably long wait for our check. It was also stiflingly hot in the restaurant.

We love JCT Kitchen. It is consistently wonderful with a menu that has southern influences with fresh food and imaginative dishes. The deviled eggs are a MUST. The hanger steak, the fish sandwich, salads are all wonderful. They have a terrific wine list as well. My only complaint is that we waited 10 minutes or more for our glasses of wine. It was a very busy Saturday lunch so that was likely the cause.

Overall, the experience was good! We love JCT but the food was not as great as it usually is! We ordered a ton of food. The friend chicken was not very well seasoned, and quite honestly tasted bland! We had out of town guests and they were not impressed.

Awful. Ordered a martini and not in a martini glass. What’s up with that. Martini was stuffed with blue cheese and still had a seed. Almost choked on it.

I have had better chicken from Publix or drive through at KFC. $300 dinner and it was awful.

I won’t ever go back or recommend it. Save your money and got to KFC!!!
