Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had a great brunch at Jams with family and friends. Emda our server was so friendly and efficient. He anticipated and exceeded all of our needs. Mensa the Manager was very welcoming and checked in with our table to make sure all was going...well. The food was so fresh and amazing. Thank you for a great time we will never forget.More

I stopped in for a drink and stayed. Great quality food and drink in a great atmosphere. There are hundreds of plants producing oxygen and greening up the place. Definitely put it on your list to visit!

Just had brunch with my kids at this gem of a place. This was by far the best french toast we've had in the city. Kudos to the chef. Our bartender Danny made amazing Strawwberry lemonade that my daughter absikutrky loved. Perfect service, great food...- what else do you need? Definitely coming back.More

I’d been looking forward to eating at Jams restaurant and the place lived up to its reputation. Loved the ambiance, plant decor and overall feel of the space. The waiter Tarell was a delight. The food was above par. Cannot give enough praise about this...place.More

I had an amazing dinner with friends last night at Jams. Everything we ate was phenomenal (highlights were the focaccia, chicken entree, and rhubarb dessert). The ambience is gorgeous and the service was impeccable. I will definitely be back!

Emda is amazing!!! He was probably the best waiter we had during our 6 day stay in New York. He is so attentive, didn’t forget a detail in our order, timely, and had a smile on his face the entire time. The food was also...incredible. Highly recommend Jams. Ask for Emda as your waiter :)More

Delicious food, for starters we ordered hummus and a focaccia… the pomegranate in the hummus makes it very special. Then we ordered the wagyu and falafel burgers, both of them were delicious. Thanks a lot to Rowan, our waiter, he was very kind and patient,...he even gave us a cheesecake because we were celebrating a birthday. Excellent service and food. I highly recommend this place.More

We came for dinner and had the perfect balance between a magical ambiance paired with impeccable service and outstanding food and drinks! We came back for Brunch and were warmly welcomed back by Natasha. The vibe during the day was cozy, coupled with the delicious...food and amazing drinks made us feel at home away from home. Egypt and Tarrel’s personal touch felt like family. We definitely felt the love! Jams is a gem! Thank you 🫶More
