I should have written this long ago but I hate writing bad reviews. But when you go to a Michelin start restaurant for your birthday, fork over a small fortune, you do not intend to spend half your visit getting sick in the bathroom!! The...More

I had my reservations about committing to this, even as a one-time special event. Every concern I had was overwhelmed by the truly astonishing meal and the educational presentation by our server, who explained each dish so we could optimize our enjoyment. I have a...More

I had a great time at chez TJ, the food was just enough and not to much, which is often a problem. It was also varied and interesting. The wines were varied and excellent as well. Ill go again.

This was our 3rd time at Chez TJs. The first two were in the late 90s, prior to them receiving a Michelin star. Unfortunately it's gone from elegant fine dining to overly pretentious dining. Now extremely overpriced, $500 for two with a bottle of Chardonnay....More

We have eaten at Chez TJ occasionally since the 1980s! And one thing that's consistent is how great the experience is. They have 2 prix fixe menus with no options, although they will make accommodations for diet restrictions. Most recently we got the locally sourced...More

We went for our 20th Anniversary -- a special dinner out to celebrate quite a milestone. While the food was very good, it was extremely rich. We did the larger tasting menu, and in retrospect we both wished we'd done the smaller one. Each course...More
