Our group of 4 all thought our dinners were excellent. The waitresses were very attentive and friendly. I would recommend reservations because the restaurant is fairly small and usually full. Two of us had their ribs which were very good.

A family Valentine's Day dinner. 4 dished 2 appetizers, we had doubles and wanted more. The service was great! They truly cater to your needs and the edamami sauce was unbelievably delicious I wanted it on everything. A must try!!

What a pleasant surprise tucked in a rear corner of a plaza-strip mall. Delicious creative martinis to start followed by an arugula salad and very fresh yellowtail cooked perfectly with a soy glaze. My husband had the beef with chocolate/coffee glaze, cooked as he ordered very rare. The "Elvis" dessert was not to be missed(shared was plenty). Young, energetic staff... More

Although everywhere in Jaco you can find very good food, this restaurant tops the chart! Every item is cooked to perfection, fabulous wine selection, and cocktails you've never had the pleasure of enjoying, has plenty of flair, and the ambiance and service are too notch! Highly recommended, prices comparable to what you would pay in Canada or the United States... More

Several locals recommended this restaurant and they were right. Small, tucked away at the back of a strip mall. Great food and drinks.

Went after reading TA reviews and we were lucky to get the last table - it was outside which didn't bother us but might some. We were served by Katy who was absolutely superb and very helpful. Food was lovely - only issue was they had run out of the pork chop which my wife particularly wanted but the ribs... More

Not a fan of Jaco and usually avoid non native food joints but we needed a place to reconnect with home. Very clean place. Lovely waitresses. Fun , modern decor. Very relaxed with very good quality food. The steak was great with their own rub with ground coffee. Good cocktails. Average American prices I'd say. Highly recommend.

During our visit to Jaco, the last night there we ate at Graffiti and it was amazing. I had fresh Mahi Mahi fish and chips and my husband had the signature filet... Yummy on both. Also had my new favorite drink a Pineapple Mojito (actually had a few). Nice atmosphere and wait staff very friendly.
