Although the service was great and the staff was attentive, and the quality of food was high, I don’t have a high overall rating because the value of the food and experience was only moderate. I understand the element of surprise to the menu, but when we asked for more information about the addition of truffle, I couldn’t get a clear answer. I asked for how many dishes and what kind of dishes will have the truffles, the waiter said it’s a surprise like the rest of the menu, and that the chef will infuse it and add it to dishES that will pair with it. It was sad when I realized it only came paired with the scallop and nothing else. Their was no infusion of truffles or anything more. It was definitely NOT worth $85! Each dish was nicely presented. The flavoring of the two last dishes (fish and American wagyu) had a lot of opportunities for improvement. The fish was very fishy and just tasted salty. The wagyu was overly salted and hid any true flavor of beef. Because of the that, I really could not enjoy this fish at all. The optional cheese course was a fondue poured over an apple fritter. I wish they gave the option to just have the fondue on the side. They poured it all over the fritter and just drenched it.
Great service, but the dishes could’ve been better executed.

This wasn't our first time at Chez TJ, and everything was as we expected it. Certainly it's not a cheap dinner experience, even when compared to 1-michelin star restaurants they are on the expensive side, but the quality of the food, the presentation and service are on par with the expectations. Every entree ranked from very good to exceptional. No point discussing specific entrees since it's a tasting menu and it varies continuously. Keep in mind that on top of the regular price for the tasting menu there are a few proposed additions that can easily add 50% or more to the bill, so plan accordingly.

If I had to mention one thing that could have been better was the desserts. This time we're good but not exceptional, last time we went they were absolutely off the charts, creative, fun, unexpected and delicious.

The highest score in my opinion goes to the vintage wine tasting experience. More than twice more expensive than the regular wine tasting, but worth it. Every wine was unique, complex, and perfectly paired with the food it came with. The sommelier provided great background on each wine and enriched the experience even more.

The cozy atmosphere completed a very memorable dinner experience.

There was one minor glitch in our dinner, one of the hoeur d'oeuvres wasn't served, and we only noticed at the end of the dinner when we got a copy of the menu to take home. The waiter was of course very apologetic when we noticed, and at the end they offered a 10$ (0.8%) discount. The apology alone would have looked less comical. Mistakes can happen, we'll be going back anyway.

Great food, in elegant setting.
Wine pairing is optimal, could be better.
Food was good, just need to have slightly more portions size, then just 1 bite.

This was a 50 th birthday celebration. It was like having a celebration in a library. As compared to other high end dining experiences I’ve had the pleasure of participant in, Chez TJ doesn’t stand up to Gary Danko or La Foile. 3 out of the 10 dishes were exemplary, the rest were pro forma, interesting at best. However our experience did exceed Danko and Foile in one category.....the check. With 2 glasses of middle of the road wine and a corkage fee, my check for 2 was almost $700. Twice the price of Danko or Minna and a third as satisfying.
If you’ve got a bucket list that includes this restaurant then cross it off, but don you didn’t know.

Service was excellent. Everyone was super friendly, not at all stuffy. Food was beautifully prepared. Both tasty and pretty. Even the butter presentation was fabulous. The course pacing was excellent. I would happily come here again. My only two critiques were these.

First, the wine pairing (five different wines with the meal), at $295 per person supplement was OK, but not a great value given the quality of the wines. The sommelier was very friendly and knowledgeable, and if it had been $295 for the two of us, OK. But normally when I pay $600 for wine at a restaurant, I am getting a bottle that is is at or near 100 point rated. I would say step up the wines, or step down the pricing on the pairing.

Second, just a disclosure, their caviar presentation was wholly non-traditional. Both my wife and I liked it, she more than I, but if you are expecting a caviar presentation with blini's and accoutrements, it won't be that. Reasonably priced, tasty, but not traditional.

Overall. Great job. You have a good thing going, Chez TJ!

The service staff is exceptional. Especially the Sommelier who did an outstanding job describing each wine with enthusiasm!

The 12-course dinner is just OK. For $225/person plus wine pairings is not outrageous but for what we got, I was not impressed. The building itself is very dated, smells musty which detracts from what could be a pleasant ambiance.

I went once, probably wouldn’t go back or recommend.

Food is good overall. I wouldn’t say it’s worth the price of 300 pp after tax and tips. I think they raised their prices because they want to get a two star.

Beautiful culinary journey. The Chef and pastry Chef are very skilled. Loved the antilope, the fish and the cannelé! The only downside is the decor that is a little outdated as well as the service that felt a little rushed, although the waiters were all very attentive.

The service was outstanding, but we had two issues with the dinner. They served a course that was served under with a cloche with smoke. It did not impart any flavor to the dish and filled the restaurant with smoke that did not dissipate. Was hard to enjoy dessert when it smelled like mesquite. My only other issue was the cost of the mineral water. $45 a bottle for water is outrageous.

I think it's a really fun experience and great way to eat high end foods that a lot of other restaurants don't typically serve. That is the key tho, the price reflects more the price of the ingredients served and the amazing service the restaurant provides. This is really a delight for a foodie but anyone else may way to save a substantial amount of money and eat somewhere else.

Chez TJ was very good - I had multiple small sized meals. It's the first non Indian Michelin I've been to. The price was about 2-3x times a regular 1 star Michelin, but I had a very good meal. It was the first time I had antelope and Caviar. Definitely get the optional cheese course. They also had some wine options - but I don't drink, but the table next to me seemed to enjoy it. I had a little stomach ache the next day, but that is probably because I never ate such a diverse variety of food. Except for the priciness compared to other 1 star Michelin's - I would strongly recommend you try this restaurant. I love the way it looks - like a house. I never even knew this was a Michelin despite walking by it everyday for almost a year.

Very creative cuisine with inspiration from everywhere in the world.
The chef got the art to mix different flavors in a very subtle way.
The wine pairing is also surprising, non conventional and generous.
Having tried other 1 star and 2 star restaurants, that one deserve another star if we just consider the quality and the creation of the dishes.

We were there for close to 4 hours. The seatings were intimate and you can hear everything everyone is saying.

Tonight we had the vegetarian option. Here’s the thing... every individual course was amazing! So good! Well, except the tofu which was supposed to be our main. The problem was with portion.... it was tiny. We saw other tables finished their meal with 3 pieces of meat while we had one small piece of tofu. The portion was definitely off and we somehow walked out hungrier.

The staff and service were wonderful.

We chose Chez TJ for our 20th wedding anniversary dinner at the suggestion of a close friend. She made the perfect suggestion for us - two Hospitality lifers!
Expert service staff delivered ten courses to us, and provided complete descriptions of each plate. So much fun for us - the food was fantastic.
Plan on three hours for your meal at Chez TJ. It’s worth the time.
Expect to pay top dollar for the meal and beverage. We thought it was worth it.

Really nice up-up-upscale restaurant - we had about 14 courses and the waiters and sommelier were always on hand to answer questions about the dishes or wine selections. For me this was a very special occasion that I would recommend to anyone looking to have a Michelin experience with some really really really good food.

An amazing and creative tasting menu with excellent wine pairings. The pacing of the courses was relaxed and service prompt. We have go to Chez TJ over the past 30 years many times for family celebrations and they have never failed to surprise us. Do include the cheese course, it has introduced us to many excellent local cheeses.

We've dined at Chez TJ several times over the past 20 years and have enjoyed the cuisine from several different chefs. The one constant is that Chez TJ continues to be one of the best restaurants in the South Bay and the current team is the best yet. The tasting menu is both creative and well executed. Service is well measured and the staff is extremely knowledgeable and professional. Dishes are seasonal and really seem to capture produce at its peak. The wine list is extensive, though we opted for hard ciders the evening we dined there. Given the prices, Chez TJ is definitely a special occasion restaurant, but well worth it.
