My boyfriend and I wanted to have a nice dinner together. Chez JJ is a very good place for this occasion, amazing food, friendly and welcoming staff. Sea bass tartar as well as grilled sea bass were really delicious. We will come back for sure!!

Foie gras, veal steak, haricot vert and mashed potatoes. Delicious. Great bottle of moderate priced wine. Molten chocolate cake dessert? Best I've had. And our thanks to the thoughtful waitress, who patiently offered suggestions. We hope to go back!

Went here because of other reviews on Tripadvisor, close to our hotel and reasonably priced. Fabulous meal, really delicious food, very good wine - we had the specials of the day, which were great. Highly recommend.

Sorry, I also have no idea to either question. But I'd hazard a guess that it's not the type of place for a New Years meal. A little too business oriented - since it's not open weekends - so not likely to bother with New... More
