The inside is absolutely beautiful. I was impressed with the authentic shot that we were given by the owners mother. It is a very personable place to eat the chef/owner comes out of the kitchen personally to ask about your meal. Yes pricey but yes delicious. I tried Skate (stingray) and much to my surprise it was amazing. We tried... More

We have been before and absolutely loved the food, decided to bring some friends and requested the tasting menu along with tequila pairing. We did do this ahead of time when reserving, not sure if it is available without a prior request. It was absolutely fantastic! The food was simply outstanding, each dish we said was better than the last.... More

Jaguar at the Bistro serves creative, contemporary Mexican food along with a short list of menu staples (e.g., cheeseburgers and fries.) I had a delicious watermelon-based cocktail from the house menu. Also quite tasty and well-presented was the steak of the day, which came w/ a house-made sauce (sort of like a chimichurri) and some beautiful vegetables. The only fail... More

My sister-in-law strongly recommended this restaurant because she knew the chef personally and she was fantastic! We loved the food we had and the atmosphere at the restaurant was just perfect for us two without our boys. My wife has white fish dish and it was something I must have next time! I had gulf shrimp and it was just... More

The service was very good, our meals were well portioned and tasted great, nice flavorful sauces, Our Margaretta's were excellent ! ...Price was a tad-over what... More

"THIS IS EXCELLENT!" was uttered each time a NEW COURSE was delivered and tasted by our Group of 4 - only the Quesa Fundido was deemed average. Overall, the menu and wine list are NOT very extensive, but I bet you will find something that you will REALLY, REALLY like! TERRIFIC margaritas, too! There are NO "standard Fare" items on... More

We ate here on a very quiet Sunday afternoon. The food and the service were both excellent. Started with a delicious blackberry-sage-tequila cocktail which would be my favorite way to drink tequila. We were brought a basket of really good bread with honey-herb sweetened butter. Then we had a very good caesar salad which came with a parmesan wafer and... More

First of all, this restaurant is now called "Bistro at the Old Fort Inn." Our waitress told us that it had been open for about 2 1/2 years, so I'm not sure when the name changed, but "Jaguar" is found nowhere on the current restaurant. We stopped in here only because we wanted a quick lunch that was located somewhere... More

We have wanted to try this place for a while and finally had the opportunity. We are glad we did and will be going back soon. The menu is not large, but the choice all sound very tasty. We had the duck breast and the pork carnitas. Both were excellent. The portions, although not large, are adequate. Prices are a... More

Wow! hang on to your taste buds! Everything was superb. I started with the Caesar salad, and my wife and son had the special appetizer which was bone marrow. Both were seasoned to perfection. The salad had a hint of sardine flavor, without being over-bearing. For entrees we had surf and turf (beef filet and shrimp), the Cornish hen, and... More
