This is always a great place to visit. Steak done just the right way. Nice choice of beer. Veal schnitzel with butter perfect. Pricing is a bit higher but that is the price for freshness and quality.
Goat cheese starter nice. Pasta with mushrooms meh. Beer a bit too cold. Overall not bad but I expected more.
Prior to Jakoby, Jakubske namesti used to be a transit route leading to various surrounding clubs and bars and the occasional drunk misbehaving in front of one of Brno's iconic churches. Having lived there, literally next door, when Jakoby took over the space previously occupied by a discount shoe store, I witnessed the transformation of a whole town square in to what's now Brno's most in location. Much of that can be attributed to Jakoby and as such earns my respect and gratitude.

But let us get to how they fare against other bars and restaurants. Their culinary repertoire has remained fixed for quite some time now and although anything I've ever had there was truly commendable, I do wish they'd change their menu a few times a year. One of my favorite starters is their fabulous baked goat cheese wrapped in Tyrolean speck (ham) served with salad, slices of pear and a ground walnut honey sauce. I actually sometimes order two just because this starter prevents me from continuing to the main course. The shrimp linguine are a cut above average. I'd expect more here, but overall, most of their current seafood dishes are quite palatable.

If you prefer a nibble to go along with a glass of wine or pint of Pilsner, Gambrinus or Fenix, you won't be disappointed by their carpaccio or more rustic klobasa. As I mentioned, the beer on offer here is quite poor, but then again they do not look like a pub even though they present themselves as a "pivni bar & restaurant" - so what is it then, Gambrinus, really? As for the wine, I wouldn't be able to tell as I am not in to wine that much - even so, Jakoby looks like a good choice for the wining and dining type of clientele. Much more so than the beer loving bunch among us who dislike the typical pub milieu. One final note regarding food - they serve a pretty darn good Kaiserschmarn (cisarsky trhanec) which for me, being Austrian, is a blessing!

What about shortcomings? Well, it does tend to be full so making reservations is recommended. But that's hardly a downside for better establishments these days. Another point that really does annoy me are the televisions, How TV has become so ubiquitous that we must be fed its vivid imagery and non-stop sporting events even when we want to dine, is beyond me. For the non-smokers among visitors, beware that it can get quite cloudy here as there is literally no architectural separation.

So all in all, Jakoby is well worth a visit be it to wine & dine with friends or simply have a few drinks before continuing around the corner of busy Jakubske namesti.
