This food is exceptional as is the service. The kitchen is open and you can watch them cook. They have a great selection of cocktails too.

Went to LJ's on a Saturday night. It wasn't that busy. We shared the dining room with the kitchen which was horrible. Sitting there listening to the head chef yell out orders etc. not very quiet and romantic. My drink from the bar was good. Menu was ok not very expansive though. Salad was boring! Just some greens thrown on a plate no tomato or anything along with it. Our meals were ok. My husband got the New York strip which was just Sub standard. Not a lot of flavor. I got the crab cakes and they were good. Got some scalloped potatoes with them but they were just ok. Needed salt. We decided to skip dessert and get out of there ASAP. The ambiance was not good at all noisy and like I said sharing the doing room with the kitchen was not good at all. Not for a "fine dining" restaurant.

The restaurant keeps their menu exciting by having themed menus for several months at a time. The night we were there was the last night of their Mediterranean menu. We had several small dishes, all of which had good flavor and were interesting. Not a dud in the lot.

We ate in the lounge which was a little noisy but fun. The wait staff was attentive and helpful. We will be back to try their next menu

My husband and I had a gift card, so we checked the place out. We actually dined in the Kat Lounge instead of the main restaurant - it's the same menu in a livelier setting. The month of July was Mediterranean tapas month, which was an unexpected treat. Our food was authentic (we've both travelled/lived in Mediterranean countries). The assorted olives were fantastic, as were the Harissa potatoes and kabobs, but the chickpea crusted snapper was bland. We enjoyed the speciality cocktails - creative and delicious. Our bartender gave us excellent service (another perk or eating in the Lounge).

Apparently, they do special menus 4 times a year, and they all sounded great. We would definitely check out another one after this lovely experience.

My husband & I probably go to LJ's way too much, but we can't help it!! LJ's is by far our favorite restaurant in town. The food is amazing, the wine fabulous (thanks to their sommelier Mia) and the atmosphere delightful! You will pay some decent $$ for the experience but it is well worth it!!!!!!
