I dined at Jiko two weeks ago and had a completely different experience. Our server, while knowledgeable about the menu and friendly, was simply not attentive to the basics of service. Although it was not a busy night, we had to keep trying to get his attention for salt and pepper. He was completely immersed in tabulating something on a touchscreen computer about 15 feet from our table. I had to physically get up and walk over to him to ask for the shakers. He was also extremely lax in clearing the table between courses. It seemed we had to wait an eternity for our flatbreads, which arrived at the table cold. The Cucumber, Red Onion & Tomato Salad must have been sitting in the refrigerator all day. It was cold and soggy. My experience of the Braised Short Ribs was the opposite of the Sentinel reviewer's; they were mushy and overcooked. The mashed sweet potatoes were tasty but only a very tiny portion.
I also thought the wines were overpriced for what they were.
It seems the reviewer only visited Jiko once this go-round. He should visit a restaurant more than once in a short time frame for a more balanced review.
