Great food

M & J Bistro is a little different from the other restaurants in Tracy, with its gourmet offerings and decent-sized bar. The chopped salad was delicious, as well as the various desserts.

M and J Bistro is a great place to go for dinner. The food was excellent, our service, even on a busy night was good. My son had a hamburger (not sure what it was called but that is what it was) where we broadened out and experimented with the crepes. The food was done to perfection and the owner... More

Called the restaurant to see if we needed reservations and went ahead and made unnecessary reso. Very quaint with limited seating so understand the need for a reservation.........if it was busy. Our server was a little on edge when we were sat but seemed to mellow as the dinner progressed. Food was decent but a little pricey for what was... More

Sometimes you find a place that has good food that doesn't necessarily look that great....and sometimes you find a restaurant where the food looks great but really isn't. M & J Bistro is neither of those. The food presentation is most excellent and could grace the covers of a gourmet magazine, AND, it tastes every bit as good as it... More

I went to meet a friend there for lunch last Sunday. This was the place that we had planned on and were looking forward to the visit. We arrived, the open sign was lit up and the doors were open and there were people inside, so in we went and we were informed that they closed at 2:30, this was... More

Pros-Nice atmo, somewhat romantic, owner is a nice guy. Basic food like crepes and burgers are consistently good. Special wine deals from local wineries are very fair. Cons-Other fare is frequently bad or worse. Veggie pasta dish was microwaved. Stuffed fish was inedible. Halibut is sometimes really good and sometimes WAYYYYY overcooked. Lunch once took nearly two hours to arrive.... More

Our favorite restaurant in Tracy. The interior is intimate and classy. They make great cocktails as well. The must try on the menu is the shaved potato chips with blue cheese. You have to save room for desert because they serve awesome crepes. Please note that service can be a little slow sometimes.

After our second visit we are satisfied to place a high score on this restaurant. While located in a strip mall the ambience of this site is good with outdoor seating provided and a decorated interior. The menu is varied, interesting with nicely prepared dishes. The shaved potato appetizer was again fantastic and the salads and soups were different and... More

The food is unique and well presented. Every time I have ate there I have enjoyed great food and excellent service. While the dining area is small it just makes it seem more cozy.
