We used to go to other downtown restaurants, but now we just head to J Bistro. The food and bar are great and the live music and atmosphere are very nice, but its the friendly staff that keeps us coming back! We bring out of town guests here and are never disappointed...we like to go alone and eat at the bar...it is a wonderful spot.

J Bistro has a lovely upscale atmosphere, and my server, Ashley, was friendly, accomodating, and timely. I had one of the specials for an appetizer of roasted brussle sprouts with candied pecans, but the dish was too sweet for a starter. Diver scallops over a sweet corn was my entree. The scallops were too deeply crusted on one side and not seared at all on the side placed on the risotto. A nice even sear on each side would have been better and far less salt, as well. Would not return for dinner, but perhaps for drinks. They have a nice bar and subtle music played by a gentleman on guitar in the dining area.

J Bistro in Sandusky OH...what a FANTASTIC MEAL and the atmosphere was upscale relaxing! Service was very good and friendly; we felt like they were genuine. Food and presentation was absolutely the BEST; what a gem in downtown Sandusky OH. Worth the stop any day. Did not do drinks from bar.

We loved this so much that we went back to eat there a second time during our vacation. There are 2 great places to eat in Sandusky and this was definitely one of them. We met the owner/chef and got to try a new dish he is working on. The menu, while a bit limited, is outstanding and every dish was delicious. If you are interested in having a wonderful meal in a great atmosphere, this is the place to go.

We went during Motorcycle week (by accident) and were hesitate because of all the noise outside, but it was like another world inside. There was a great jazz duo playing and the decor was tastefully done...beautiful. We had pasta dishes, flatiron, beet and lettuce salads and they were delicious. My son is a chef and after looking at the menu were afraid the dishes would be overdone (too many ingredients) but they all came together beautifully. Everyone from their hostess to the wait staff were well informed and gave great service. My husband and I said it reminded us of Lindy's in Columbus. There is very little upscale dining in Sandusky, but this one is well worth it for the food and value.
