My friend and I tried Jar for the first time last night. The Japanese yams with creme fraiche (side) and the butterscotch pudding (dessert) were amazing. I would go back just to eat those. Wow! The tempura squash blossoms (special appetizer) were also great. I'm not a huge fan of tempura, but they were perfectly battered. My friend also really enjoyed the crab and shrimp cakes (special appetizer).
For entrees, we had the pot roast and the rib eye. They were both good, but not as outstanding as the rest, although the creamy horseradish sauce was very good. My friend had the banana cream pie. It's one of her favorite desserts. She liked it, but didn't think it was the best she ever had.
The service was wonderful. Our waiter was attentive but not overbearing. The total was about $160 for two appetizers, two entrees, one side, two desserts, one martini, tax and tip. All in all, it was a great dinner. I would go back again, and I don't feel that way very often about restaurants.
