Great meal
All was good, staff, food, views,etc. The only bad thing was that we got there and there was no sign of reservation, they accommodate us, but if it was a w/end we could have trouble, i had an email confirmation, very weird


Chose Jonah's for a special luncheon with friends and we weren't disappointed. Setting is great, staff very knowledgable and engaging and the food first class. Would highly recommend as a 1st class fine dining experience. Have also tried Squids Ink at Belmont, which is more expensive, but not as good.




I dined at Jonah’s on Saturday night as a late valentines day surprise for my partner. The food and service were amazing. I had the blue swimmer crab rolls for entrée and the lamb neck pie for main. I have to say the service from our waitress really made the night. We will go back again, cheers
