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

Great little place in an old house in historic Littleton. Used a living social and what a find! My fish was cooked perfect and my husband enjoyed his steak. Our chocolate mousse was melt away perfection with fresh fruit. And I recommend the Kir Royale to start everything off. Great atmosphere.

A warm, cozy small house. Nice variety of menu choices. Shared bacon wrapped stuffed dates that were delicious. Friends thought the steak and pomme frites was excellent. I enjoyed the crispy, flavorful, layered eggplant. We shared 2 delicious desserts, creme brûlée and chocolate mousse. Would definitely come back.

We lunched here a couple of years ago and were disappointed by the food and what wasn't offered. Nevertheless, we decided to give it another try for dinner because Amazon Local ran a coupon offer. It is still quite small--charmingly so, with only about 8 tables. Luckily the restaurant was not full and we didn't have to edge around too... More

My wife and I had a nice mid-week lunch. She had a vegetable quiche / salad combo. The quiche was very good and the salad was a tasty array of greens with artichoke hearts. I had the Parisian Burger with onions, bacon, brie, Portobello mushrooms, served on a croissant bun. Very tasty. We'll be back.

It's a small quaint little restaurant in downtown Littleton. My husband loved his steak which he said was cooked perfectly rate. I had a great chicken and artichoke salad with a glass of white wine. They serve mostly french wines to go with their french menu items.

This is one of the best kept restaurant secrets in the Denver metro area. wonderfully crafted plates, well contemplated wine list, and good value for the $$. Stephan, chef-owner, is crazy picky about ingredients. The menu is not elaborate, but every plate has been planned and executed to perfection. Hey, but don't go if you're in a hurry. This is...
