We had a small garden wedding on the patio for about 40. We had cocktails and appetizers passed until we began our service. I was not worried if it rained...the patio was covered for this amount of people or we would have had the service upstairs. After the ceremony we had dinner for about 150 upstairs. We started with a cocktail hour and appetizers following by dinner. The staff were incredible! They know how to serve 150 people. They are professionals. I had an open bar for part of the time. They worked closely with my budget and we had NO surprises. One of the big reasons I picked Jax was for their food. It was great! I found out later, I picked it for the service, ambiance and value as well! The patio was beautiful! A local magazine did a story on our wedding because of how beautiful the setting was!

We chose this restaurant thanks to a recommendation for a co-worker. We're having a low-key reception after having an intimate (read: just me and my husband) ceremony in Kaua'i. It's a fun lunch where we'll eat, drink, be merry, and show the video from our ceremony with family and friends. Jane at Jax has been very fun to deal with. She has tested us a bit with her memory (or lack thereof) but absolutely nothing that has caused issue.

I do have to stay on top of her a bit with emails, but I can imagine that she's a pretty busy lady.

The restaurant itself REALLY should advertise their event services more. The food is amazing! The interior is SO charming and gorgeous! I woudl HIGHLY recommend checking this place out!

Because we're having it as a lunch, there's NO fee for the room; we simply paid a deposit that will be applied towards the food charge. They also provide cool little customized matchbooks - FREE! They also rent some aspects of the centerpieces. It's been SO easy for us because we're pretty low-key and not looking to wow people with over the top design and decorations.

Very happy with the experience!

Jax was a fantastic place to have our wedding reception. The atmosphere was perfect for what we were looking for and the room was plenty big enough for our party and best of all there were no food and beverage minimums AND no room rental fee!! You simply paid for the food and drinks your guests consumed. Also those prices were very fair given what other venues charged. I was very happy with Jax Cafe!

We have enjoyed Jax Café in the past, and it has always been a place for special occasions. Our wedding experience was fantastic. The food selections were superb - the filet mignon was perfectly prepared and the sea bass melted in your mouth! Both were showstoppers with our guests. In addition to the excellent food, the service was extraordinary. The wait staff was always one step ahead, including preparing and serving the cake, which was provided through another vendor. Overall, the experience contributed to a perfect day!

Jax was a great reception venue. The food is awesome (not your typical wedding food) and the service was great. In addition, they provide a lot of support while you are planning your wedding and make themselves very available. They are very accomodating, professional and are fun to work with.

We held our ceremony and reception all in the big ballroom at Jax. I loved working with them because they are seasoned at holding these large events and I did not even have to worry about them. The food was great, the room was ready for us when they said it would be, and our guests we treated like royalty.

One nice thing is that they do not charge a rental fee for the space if you spend enough on food and drinks. Basically every other place in town I looked into charges for rental. We were glad to spend that rental money on better food and drinks for our guests!

Jax had a nice set of rules that made it clear that they know what they are doing, but they also helped accommodate our specific wishes when they could.

I wished the communication with the event coordinator had been more consistent and faster, BUT in the end everything was taken care of and she helped make that happen.

We had our Groom's dinner at Jax. They had just had a fire, but you wouldn't have known it. They have a beautiful facility, wonderful service, and wonderful food. I have visited Jax for other events and dinners prior and after ours and each visit has been wonderful.
