LJ's is a hidden gem. The food is top notch and creatively prepared and presented. They make their own pickled veggies, pimiento spread, beer batter bread and you can buy them to take home. That is just the beginning (small touches). The house made pate and the accompaniments are delicious. The artisan cocktails are on point. The Kat Lounge (the... More

5 courses of Devine pleasure! Every mouth full was a fantastic burst of unique flavor! Jim was attentive and was supported by a host of servers and staff attentive to our every need and desire.

We were there for our anniversary dinner, 1st time at this restaurant. I was a bit iffy on going due to some bad reviews, but my husband was set that this was the place to go so off we went. Our waiter was excellent with his detail in food explanation and wine pairing, he was almost like our private maitre'd,... More

Very good meal. Everything made in house, makes a difference. Bacon a great starter. Pimento cheese and crackers out of the ordinary as well, plenty to share for a group. Caesar with the house dressing also very fresh and unique. Good wine selection. Unique cooking techniques make the mains. Tuna nicely prepared and just the right amount.

We first found LJ's through Open Table and tried them a couple years ago. We usually use them for special occasions. The menu is a little pricey but the food and service justify this and this is nothing unusual for Rockville or DC so LJ's is the place you go for the same caliber food and service without the extra...

A front row table provided us a good look and feel of how a quality restaurant performs. With only a service counter separating the dining from the kitchen, the chef, his staff, and waiters are all on display, showing the extreme coordination it takes to provide an excellent dinner.

My second visit. I had heard that since my first visit LJ's had "simplified" their menu. Whatever, I loved the food the first time and wasn't disappointed last night either. Firstly, you must be patient (here's a hint, go with someone you enjoy spending time with because while misery loves company, company doesn't think much of the former). Expect it... More

Dined here for New Years Eve and was pleased with the quality of food. Ordered the New York Strip steak which is served with a side of spinach and a side salad. The steak was one of the best in the area (and should be for $42), and was cooked a perfect medium as I requested. The encrusted fat actually... More
