I finally gave into the hype and booked dinner at Jacobs & Co recently. To be completely honest, Jacobs & Co was surprisingly disappointing. I expected a fun upbeat steakhouse, but this was completely the opposite. it was traditional and stuffy, which was a massive surprise. This place was billed as Toronto's own n9ne or STK, but it was more like Harbour 60 with a more modern interior. The average age of the crowd was 60 and the younger crowd members were douchey i-banker types with zero fashion sense. The food was good, (standard high end steakhouse) and our server was great (as was the table side Caesar guy). Overall, though, I came away pretty disappointed as this just missed the mark I thought it would hit from an experiential perspective. I wish somebody would open a real STK or n9ne in Toronto...we need a fun place that's truly "not your daddy's steakhouse".
