“Enchanting Atmosphere, not so much the food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2012

Been going to Jacmel Inn since the late 70's. Once a stately home located amidst oak trees and a lovely patio, Jacmel oozes atmosphere and romance. The bar area and dining rooms are paneled in rich, warm wood with an abundance of windows overlooking it's garden. That said, the food over the years has been quite erratic due mostly to a succession of chefs, some good, some great, some not so great. The current Chef Doyle has been there the longest I believe and he was spectacular at first. I've noticed for the past 2 years a decline in consistency and execution so much that one week the Eggplant Parm did not at all resemble the one I had a week before or the week before that. The food recently was just totally uninspired and slipshod in my opinion. I wish they'd get their act together. The service is always good and the wine list is affordable with a nice selection.

“World class food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2012

The restaurant is in an old house- lots of atmosphere but not too fancy. The food is why we eat here. The prices are high- but that simply reflects the quality. Not a huge selection but the chef always delivers.
