James Street South
Excellent sevice from theExcellent sevice from the minute we came through the door. Food was amazing and our server was very helpful and friendly.16/02/2013 00:00:00Best dinner experience in yearsI've dined at some of the top restaurants in the the UK and Ireland and JSS easily ranks amongst the top 5.
A little gem of a place nestled in a city centre side street with perfect ambience and food to die for. Very attentive and friendly service pitched at just the right level.
A wonderful experience and can't wait to go back. 10 out of 10.16/02/2013 00:00:00Great FoodThe food was excellent but we had to wait 45 minutes for our main course (no starter) and the restaurant wasn't that busy. Other than that, the service was very good.14/02/2013 00:00:00Valentine's, 1st time at JSSMy girlfriend and I attended James Street South for Valentine's Day, and we were both pleased with the occasion. The staff were helpful and courteous, from beginning to end. The menu may not be for the fussier eaters, and vegetarian options were not wide, but the food we ordered delivered both in terms of taste and presentation. It is certainly one of the more expensive restaurants and it justifies the price. The portions left us nicely full and there can be no argument with them. The only downfall was a slight lack of atmosphere: although there was ambience and it was visually attractive, it just seemed devoid of a spark that the absolute highly recommended restaurants have.14/02/2013 00:00:00happy foodieThe welcome and service was excellent, the food superb and the ambience relaxing. It is expensive with 15% service charge but one only gets what you pay for. Thank you25/01/2013 16:00:00usual excellent mealwe have eaten here several times before and as always I was spoiled for choice on the menu: it all sounded delicious and I knew from experience that the food would not disappoint. This is not Belfast's cheapest venue but I think that we really got what we paid for: an excellent meal and beautifully presented.25/01/2013 16:00:00Excellent restaurantA lovely restaurant with a great atmosphere A very welcoming greeting on arrival & great service. Food excellent. Highly recommend11/01/2013 16:00:00Birthday treatThis was my second time eating at James street south and I was just as impressed as the first time.
The food was exquisite, table was booked for 2 hours but plenty of time to sit back, relax and enjoy.
Our waitress was always on hand topping up our glasses before they had a chance to empty, I would definitely
eat here in the future.11/01/2013 16:00:00Sophisticated dining in BelfastJames Street South is perfect for a sophisticated but relaxed evening out with friends. Food and service were all excellent. The wine list was also of high merit. One of the best 'all-round' restaurants I have been to in a while.28/12/2012 00:00:00My wife and I went to JamesMy wife and I went to James Street South with two friends last Saturday evening. We had a fabulous evening from start to finish. Food is at different level to the vast majority of restaurants and the staff are quite simply superb. I would highly recommend JSS to anyone wanting something very special.21/12/2012 16:00:00Lovely LunchEnjoyed our third visit this year to James Street South, as much as the other two. Had a delightful lunch with their usual attention to detail, and quality service. Thoroughly recommended!19/12/2012 16:00:00James St South was ratherJames St South was rather nice; a bit of a middle aged crowd. They were 3/4 hour late with the table and didn't apologise - just told us to sit and have a drink. I also found their service at the table intrusive - they kept butting in to ask if it was OK even when we were obviously deep in conversation. The food was very good, though. However, I do hate restaurants that charge you for side portions which cost them practically nothing and ought to be on your plate already.07/04/2012 00:00:00
