The JAM menu offers quick bites for a catch up through to our full a la carte selection. We also have a great special luncheon menu that is always popular.

As the sun sets over the CBD and Castle Hill sit back and relax over dinner at one of the window tables or enjoy the views of the river and CBD lights on the terrace. For a romantic degustation dinner we recommend one of the private booths,

    First choice of the risotto was not available - so chose the lamb rump. Flavour was good but the rump was EXTREMELY tough. Difficult to cut with a regular knife and difficult to chew. Such a shame as the service and ambience were great.

    We visited Jam and was excited to try the tasting menu. The menu had changed from the one we saw on their website and I was disappointed that I couldn't have the duck which I specifically wanted to try. Overall the food was very good and presented well. My only criticism was that two of my dishes were quite cold when we received them. This was the pork and octopus and the lamb with pearl couscous. The standout dish which really surprised me was the ravioli filled with lime ricotta. It was superb. I would recommend Jam and will definitely come back but probably will not have the tasting menu again.

    Very Poor Experience, 14 February Valentine's Promotion $200 booking fee upfront. Service - Waiter was very average constantly interrupting our discussion for meaningless questions, water service stopped midway through meal with no one available to ask for refills. Food - Steak was undercooked and was the worst piece I've seen from a restaurant yet had to cut away 1/4 of the steak because of gristle throughout the steak, frankly woolies have better steaks for $8.. Value - After paying $200 for the night I was still asked to pay for a side which was not included with the 3 course, not even 5 course meal... Ambience - We were seated in the middle of the floor, and as expected tables were squeezed together so having a conversation was very hard with the noise generated. Overall - Poor Experience overall, have been to Jam Corner a few times before but has never been this bad, I expect more for that amount of money..

    Got the wrong meal: ordered Rump 300g but got Lamb Rump, but I was so hungry I just had the food without complaints. Taste was OK, but they asked TIPs. Hmmm Every time I go there, there had been a small dissatisfaction, but I will still go to JAM as food taste quite good.

    The most amazing dinner we have had in a VERY long time!!! The duck my husband had as his main is without a doubt the BEST duck he has eaten (and he has had quite a few ducks at restaurants both in Australia and overseas). The flavour of the meat was outstanding and cooked to perfection. We could not fault a single thing. Highly recommend you give Jam a go, whether it's just a night out or a special occasion, between the food and the service you will NOT be disappointed!!

    Food was mostly good, except sirloin steak which had many lines of gristle. Red wine by the glass was served at fridge temperature (4 degrees), which is not right, (should be min 16 deg) Duck too salty on outside. Aircon & fan produced a strong uncomfortable breeze. Main course took too long to arrive. Service from staff was very good. I’d go back, but not in a hurry.

    Food was good, service disappointing, had empty glasses on the table since half way through the entrees. Serves walked passed several times and cleared our plates and didn’t top up our water or ask if we wanted more drinks. Another lady brought our mains over and again didn’t ask if we wanted more drinks, despite them filling everyone else’s water and replenishing drinks around us. No one approached to ask how our mains were. My partner got up to ask for our drinks and they still never arrived, we were given a dessert menu and STILL no one mentioned getting us any water or drinks regardless of the empty glasses I placed at the front of the table. Didn’t want to waste our money on desserts when something so simple and water or offering more drinks is too difficult. Two ladies mumbling when we were paying about what I had commented was wrong but didn’t really seem faze. Shame as we were really looking forward to our meal here
