We chose Jamie's on this occasion as the children's menu looked really nice. The service was very friendly if a little slow. The children loved the visual gizmos for the menus. The Fritos misto, oxtail tagliatelle, bruschetta, salad and chicken burger were all declared excellent by the adults but the children's burgers were hardly eaten as the lemony yogurt dressing...

I took my daughter for a light lunch today whilst shopping. We were seated at a table but had to wait 15 mins before anyone came to see us. Finally our order was taken and food came pretty promptly. After eating we had to wait quite sometime to get anyone's attention to get the bill and to pay too.

Hello, thanks for the feedback. Sorry to hear that you felt the service was a little slow on your visit. As i'm sure you can appreciate we can get very busy, particularly during half term! However, this is not an excuse and I will be asking the manager on duty and all the staff working why this was the case... More

Amazing food in relaxed surroundings which my two small girls are every last crumb of their spaghetti meatballs and chocolate brownie. Oxtail ragu tagliatelle was delicious too and all at a price almost unbelievable.

We were served on the 19th February by Alex who was really polite, sweet and even got one of the chefs Danny to come out and tell my mum the amazing apple sauce recipe. Made her day as it was the best thing we've ever tasted. Couldn't of asked for a better experience. Thank you!

Really good service with well cooked and typically JOI meals. Staff were all incredibly friendly and welcoming. JO Gold card is worth taking out as were given free glasses of Preseco and nibbles. Pasta dishes are excellent recommend Spaghetti with Crabmeat, which comes with chilli in the sauce.

Great informal service in a busy restaurant. We were a group of six, so 12.5% service was automatically added. Food was good, although the menu seemed more complicated than necessary

There is a good choice of food. Service was fine and there is a pleasant bustling atmosphere. My main course (chicken) did not come with any sides, so I had to order these after the chicken turned up, looking quite lonely on the plate.

We train our staff to recommend dishes based on the customers needs, so i am sorry that you were not informed the chicken may need a side order. Our seasonal greens go amazing with this dish!!!...

Had a wonderful meal tonight at Jamie's in Portsmouth. Hannah was our waitress and she was exceptional. We have been to several Jamie's recently and they aren't as good as this one. The food was really good as was the service. Would happily return. It is amazing how important the person serving you is to your overall experience! Thank you... More

Its always very busy and service can be hit and miss. The food is very nice but the portions are quite small, i had the plank of antipasti to start but its a taster rather than a starter, and had to ask for bread , which is extra of course. I then had the tagliatelle, again very nice but a... More
