The cozy and very charming JaJa Bistro was everything I was hoping for right when I walked through the door. The service was incredible from beginning to end. The Lavender Honey Sparkler was impressively delicious. The smoked trout crepe with pork belly on the side was definitely the best dish I ate my entire vacation in Colorado. The trout was... More

I wanted to like Jaja Bistro. It had all of the elements. Just a few tables, a cute outdoor area, as well as a quaint indoor dining room. The menu had enough possibilities. The execution, however, was poor.The service, friendly but again, I am here for the food. the snails in a sort of creamy bechamel was too heavy and... More

Which is too bad, because the ambiance is nice and cozy, the people are nice and the wine list is good. My friend and I stopped in this week for a glass of wine and a little appetizer. The place is charming and the staff was very nice. We ordered wine, which was lovely, and two appetizers, the garlic and... More

This is a gem in downtown Littleton. The service and staff are excellent and I always feel quite at home here. Very cozy, with a great wine selection. Great for meeting friends and clients.

This restaurant is in a restored older home in Littleton. If you like original woodwork and built-ins you will like the inside atmosphere. Four of us met for a delicious lunch. Nice portions, not too big. I had the artichoke quiche. The pastry was flaky and light. Sat outside to enjoy the summer day.

For really good food in congenial surroundings you can't beat JaJa. I try to get out here every time I visit Denver and really enjoy the traditional French bistro food they provide. It's a peaceful and unrushed dinner with excellent flavour combinations; if I had to pick a top appetiser it has to be the dates wrapped in bacon, but... More

My wife and I have been big fans of Ja-Ja Bistro in Littleton, CO for years. Being travelers, we love the nice French feel it provided. The Valentines visit was a bit different feeling for us. Good but not "engaged" service. Only a Pre Fix menu available. I didn't ask when making our reservations a few weeks ago but, the... More

I had the duck leg confi with sour mashed pickled cherries, red peppers, and wilted frisse with roasted vegetables, one of the 3 or 4 nightly specials. Kudos to Stefan, the chef. We also really liked the butter with piment d' Espelette, a spicy red pepper grown in one particular region of France. The host was also delighful. A very... More

I have eaten here twice. The food was pretty good but service was slow and seemed to disappear often. I thought the portions were a little small and the prices could have been lower for what we got. I'm not one to overstuff myself, but I felt like the portions and the price needed to be more in agreement. Nonetheless,... More
