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...

Came early just for that. Moved to dining room as table was ready. The facilitation of food and orders coming out of the Kitchen was superb. Had Crabcake ( Huge and delicious)and brusselsprout...

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

My twin wanted to try it out for our birthday, we brought a party with us. The serving staff looked as if they just walked right off the street, food service was slow and the portions to cost were just not there. Extremely small portions and a large cost

Excellent experience Fine dinning in Hagerstown. Invited friends from Northern VA. They were impressed as well and they were not easily impressed. Unique appetizers and great meal.

The title of this says it all about my overall review. My biggest gripe about this restaurant is that they don't have salt and pepper shakers on the tables, nor sugar/artificial sweetener on the tables. You have to ask for these things. I ordered an unsweetened ice tea and they brought me a small goblet of sweetened syrup. Why? If... More
